It is certainly very important that police depts reflect the community they serve.

However, there is another very important criteria that needs to be observed in policing our communities. The people we arm and send out to keep us safe should be psychologically capable of handling this responsibility. Many of them are not.

The prolific videos that cell phones have provided show a scary vision of those that are supposed to protect us. Often they do not know the laws they are enforcing and if they do, they can ignore them with impunity. They can shoot and kill innocent people with no consequences. They are answerable only to themselves. This is a recipe for disaster unless we start changing the criteria for whom we hire and stop allowing them to investigate themselves when things go wrong.
