This problem will not go away overnight and this is something that has to be handled internally by police departments throughout the country. Like you said having sensitivity training and whatnot does nothing but fuel resentment within police departments.\n\nAt some point though you need to get rid of these guys and stop being so self-defensive and taking it personally. If you’re a good honest cop, you have to hold your fellow offices to the same standard and stop making excuses for this abberant behaviour.\n\n\nThe problem I have with this only being handled internally is that the complaints against Chauvin were handled this way and he was allowed to stay in the department.\n\nEver watch Cops, PD Live or any of the other cop shows? If the incidents aren't staged, I think the side who say they're afraid to be killed by the police need to realize that fighting with the cops isn't going to result in good things. Milwaukee has lost officers in several ambushes and that's not a good way to foster cooperation between the Police and the Black community. Another problem here is in the 'Snitches get stitches' attitude that prevents the Police doing their job when crimes are committed. This lack of information is the reason fewer than half of all murders here are solved. Then, when someone is killed, the grief-stricken cry and wail, asking "Where were the police, to stop this?". \n\nI think the stress of the job is taking a toll that is festering and isn't being dealt with in a constructive way. They suffer from PTSD, just like someone who was in a war zone- I saw a news video from last night of a guy waving a Glock with an extended (30 round) magazine through the sun roof of an SUV, with gunfire in the background. Leaving that at the office is pretty hard to do. A cop was shot Friday night and not far from here, the dirtbags were throwing rocks through the windows of businesses and tossing barricades at Police vehicles. There was a bunch of cars that drove toward the mall close to my house and when they saw the Police, they turned around and drove in the opposite direction, but on the wrong side of the road, at high speed. Yes, I heard gunfire. People from Milwaukee have been raping and pillaging at that mall for decades (literally and figuratively), since the day Sears closed the store in the inner city- I worked in the mall at the time and remember the increase of crime vividly. The crime in outlying areas started after the Milwaukee riots of 1967- before that, we didn't lock our houses or garages because there was no need. Now, that mall has a Police sub-station to handle the crime.
