For John, BLUF: Community policing. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This comes from The Washington Post, a pretty mainstream newspaper. The question posed by Mr Radley Balko, in "Scenes from a militarized America: Iowa family ‘terrorized’", has to do with the changing methods of policing in the Unted States. Are these changes good for American Democracy in the long run?
Frankly, I like Lowell's emphasis on the Police getting out amongst the citizenry. It is a different approach and one better suited to his nation.
