The GBI says law enforcement was clearing the area when someone started shooting. The trooper was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
If even the Daily Mail - the newspaper that supported Hitler - say the stats are horseshit, that's probably not great.
I'm a cop in California and you bring up good points. I don't necessarily feel like breaking this post down right now but here's something to consider - the way law enforcement in the US has been treated by the media and politicians in the last few years has made the job less desirable. We have more people retiring and less people coming on to replace them. For many, this is no longer a lucrative career and most departments are struggling to recruit. While I agree that more training is needed, municipalities will only continue to lower standards (such as prior education and work experience) and training to hire enough warm bodies. This is what directly led to the hiring of at least some of the officers involved in the Memphis incident. I doubt a 2 year training program would have made some of those guys better cops or human beings.The way I see it, America has a policing problem. And BLM shouldn't be protesting to defund the police, but to provide better funding. Normally I try to avoid coming across as the smug European who tells the Yanks what they're doing wrong, but policing is one of the few things I'm convinced is done better in Europe. And here's why: 18.000 police departments, 90% of which with 50 employees or less? That's a recipe for chaos.
We pay higher taxes over here in Western Europe and our municipalities have large budgets, yet still I'm certain my hometown could not properly 1. fund, 2. recruit, 3. train and 4. equip a police force to the highest of standards. There's a reason why in most countries law enforcement falls under the purview of higher subdivisions or even the central government: It's costly and requires thorough standardisation.
I'm told some American police departments provide as little as 18 weeks of training. I'm not surprised that officers this ill-prepared would be prone to over-reacting on streets more dangerous than our own. And yet European police agencies train their officers for 2 years and more, despite our crime rates being lower and gun violence being relatively uncommon. I can't help but see a link there.
These inadequacies could be solved by better funding. And since no one likes tax raises (particularly stateside), the other (and better) option would be to make policing a matter of the state. I just see no reason for local communities to run their own police departments, especially if they're too small or too poor to generate decent revenue. A reorganisation like that would also make policing more cost-effective (economies of scale).
those stats are true, or very close. its not hard to corroborate.If even the Daily Mail - the newspaper that supported Hitler - say the stats are horseshit, that's probably not great.
Trump was branded 'racist' by critics on Twitter after he re-posted the fake crime figures, which wrongly state that most murders of both black and white people are committed by black killers.www.dailymail.co.uk
I live 40 miles from Baton Rouge and it's a combat zone. All southern cities are now lost, soon to come your home towns. I remember back to the interference in South Africas affairs when we can't take care of our own problems at home. So much pandering taking place you can now steal rape rob and pillage and be rewarded for it.
