In the recent times I have seen and heard a lot of things that I do not think police officers should say and do. I have a degree in criminal justice, and everything I have been taught is not practiced in the field. When you have officers calling people out of name due to color of their skin and you see racial tatoos on their arms you know something is not right. Many of these small time cops think they can act how they want with no one saying anything to stop them. What is going on around here? I know I am in the south, but I thought slavery was gone.... is ignorance still practiced? When is the importantance of serve and protect going to outweigh the hate? When you put on a badge there is no longer a color to skin, but a need to help people. That is why I chose the career I did and I stand by it each and every day. So, it leads me to one more question.... how can you sit in church on Sunday and believe there is a God when you worry about living in neighborhoods with to many blacks or you have hate images on your body.

I am a person of color and was thinking of moving to the Cary area. It's hard to believe that people in the South still live with such hate. Reading your comment, leaves me to believe that the police will not do much of anything to protect me from crime; therefore, Cary wouldn't be a place I'd like to live.

I'm surprised to see that Cary is on the list of the best places to live in the US. Maybe if you're the RIGHT color Cary would be a good place to live.

Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm on the same planet as the folks here. "Sit on church on and beleive there is a God" ... all around the world people are killing each other in the name of their God.

I'm fully convinced nine of ten law enforcement sole reason for their choice of career is only for the head rush they get in bullying the public around.

Look at that incident of that officer that just shot a dog sitting on a porch. It took a news team to make a story of it just to get them to say sorry.
Look at the HEAD RUSH our "protect and serve" got from hearing a puppy burning to death:
