Sigh. I’ll work my damndest to try to get folks on board with the concept of citizen design of policing, because I truly believe the answer to finding a better relationship between citizenry and police in the US is founded on a return to the principle that police perform only with the consent of their communities.

But people, it’s only going to work if there is mutual respect. This is not respect. If we are going to ask police to respect, to restrain themselves, then it can not be an excuse for some to get away with breaking the law
