Jacob Blake shooting proves beyond the shadow of a doubt we need police reform.

This proves we need to invest other resources in how we work in all our communities.

We need police to be trained and require the to have at least 2 years in counseling and a FBI type background check.

These police had been called because of a domestic dispute. Here is one of my left wing "crazy" ideas have train crisis counselors sent to deal with the issue.


Maybe I have no place in saying this: I am a white woman who lived a shelter life but the only police I have know in my life have been egomaniacs who had been high school jock-bullies. One was racists as hell. I will never trust a cop!

1. Exactly

Yeah, we have too many trigger happy ex military cops and general high school bully types who go into law enforcement.

2. I was convinced of the need for police reform back in the 1950s when I was a pre-teen.

Nothing that has happened since then has changed my mind. To accomplish anything constructive
we need local, county, state and national politicians willing to do the necessary work... and maybe the same people can fix a lot of other things while they're about it!
