I Want To Trust The Police, But…
I want to trust police, but I will not offer them trust or even respect if they give me reason to question their morals, their ethics, or purity to their oath of office. We make a huge mistake if we offer carte blanche to anyone, and that includes the police, elected officials, judges, justices, or even the President of the United States. Nobody deserves automatic respect without first considering situational awareness. If given no other reason, we can default to respect. If given no other reason, we should be gracious and well-mannered. But we are thinking human beings, and that means if someone gives us a reason to revoke our respect, regardless of stature in society, we must follow through.
