Police departments throughout the country are on the firing line for their behavior. Now, more than ever, their actions are recorded, scrutinized, and criticized endlessly, with or without merit. They have one of the hardest jobs there is, and just like any industry, there are abuses. There are some who lose their lives in the line of duty.
Oakland is no different. Their police department has wonderful officers as well as a few that aren’t so much. Unfortunately, our country rarely applauds an officer who does his or her job well, and only seems to bring the attention to those who don’t. I think this needs to change, as well as holding those responsible for actions that are reprehensible.
