About two years back, I wrote a post about surviving an encounter with police after a movement started intent on discrediting any police organization and claiming that every officer was a racist murderer. This all started because of a media narrative that turned out to be completely false. The damage had been done though, and the movement still exists to this day. It seems not a week goes by that there isn’t some incident of an individual who was rendered free to assume room temperature by an interaction with a member of law enforcement. And again, I find people who are wholly unqualified to make any judgment about whether the officer was justified so often of late, even among my friends that I would consider “educated”, that I felt compelled to write this post as a follow up.
