My Problem with the Institution of Policing in America


Editor’s note: The link below leads to an article about American policing at another site. The author is Mike Maharrey who writes on behalf of the Ron Paul affiliated libertarian organization, Voices of Liberty.

Excerpt: “Since the unconscionable murder of two NYC police officers, I’ve read numerous appeals imploring me to ‘support the police.’ I don’t — not as an institution.”

Mike Maharrey explains how thousands of American policemen and women are now part of an organization whose mission has changed from protect and serve to “command and control”. He supports individual police officers, but sees a need for changes in the philosophy of American policing. The issues are many, but the blame can be laid on politicians who have passed bad laws and militarized the police.
