I Love You America, But Your Police Are Out of Control

Yes, blue lives matter and yes, the large majority of law enforcement officials are good eggs.

But when there is a bad egg, he or she needs to be punished. 

I'd even go further.

There should be a ripple effect on the given force even if their colleague retires or is shoved out quietly. 

There should be shaming. Shaming works.

There always need to be consequences for bad behaviour.  Always.

Often, there are no consequences whatsoever for the bad behaviour of those whose chosen vocation is serving as an armed protector of civilization with the full might of the state behind him or her.

Yes, it is dangerous work and yes, it should be very reasonably compensated. 

There is still no excuse for a policy of no consequences.

This woman and her daughter are bloody lucky they didn't end up dead.

And if that's what makes them "lucky", Houston-we have a real problem.
