It is important to remember not all cops, officials and public servants are bad. They are human beings and they too want to be treated with respect, just like we do. There are many out there that have taken the time to read and educate themselves and many of them believe like you do that there is something fundamentally wrong here. Those that have not have a great deal to learn, if you have the opportunity teach them.
Remember any change that happens at the point of a gun is fleeting. Only through knowledge and education can we create change that will last.
Lastly, hats off to this officer who did the morally correct thing in this situation. People like you who take a moment of their time to make others lives better are hero’s in our book. It is not your badge, but your moral fortitude we commend.
