It's about time that the accountability for sundry unnecessary and excessively violent confrontations between Law Enforcement and those they are sworn to protect and SERVE is finally being addressed. There are far too many incidents wherein police officers and deputies exhibit disdain and contempt for the those on the "other side" of the "thin blue line." Often, when officers enter into situations that could easily be resolved without the use of force, they opt to use force, frequently excessive and increasingly deadly. It's pathetic to be a citizen and to see that people who are entrusted with upholding lawful behavior are little more than cowardly brutes in situations that those with character and courage could handle with confidence and honor.
