I’ll admit it. I’m an old lady and sometimes I’m kind of old fashioned.
I remember the days when police were viewed as an important part of the community. They were the ones with whom we felt safe. Children were taught to go to a police officer if they were in anyway in trouble. The key word here is community.
Now, while I’m old fashioned, I’m not stupid. Even back then I knew that police were human and some of them made mistakes. And some of them were bad guys. But we focused on the good they did.
