Response to Gentle-man (Original post)

84. That some people have little sympathy for the police is understandable.

Unfortunately, the numerous cases of police brutality that have not been properly investigated and have not resulted in the police being held accountable has turned many citizens against the police. These cases are not rare, but increasingly they being exposed almost daily from rural communities to major urban centers.

It appears that Dorner was both a victim of a corrupt system and totally without moral justification for his blind retaliation. However, the police have brought this upon their own self. While I am confident that the vast majority of police are not guilty of abusing their position, the same majority have consistently cooperated in protecting the guilty by their refusal to hold them accountable. The Blue Wall Silence must be taken down if they ever wish to regain the universal respect of their fellow citizens.

I can only hope that they didn't burn down the building in a fit of rage since that only compounds the horror of this madness. I just don't know who to trust. The MSM appears to be compromised to the extent that the so-called journalists have lost their ability to objectively report the facts. Commissions that are appointed to investigate cases of misconduct of public officials appear to be as unworthy of trust as those they are charged with investigating. Perhaps I am being too pessimistic, but when our elected representatives' from local government to national assemblies only concern is getting reelected rather than making difficult decisions on major issues then I am not in the least reassured of the future of the nation.
