What I think he's saying is that there is a growing mistrust between police and the public as a whole, and that the police need the public to be on their side.
I've had the chance to talk about the killings with a couple of leos down here in Florida over the past few days. Four of the murders were here, and cops are REALLY jumpy. I can really see this snowballing.
BTW: the cops who were killed down here were working on special teams of local, state and federal officers who were assigned to bring in some really bad cats. I taught a class over the weekend with a guy who's working on one of those teams, and they are girding for war.
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for re-election and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake free people get to make only once." Judge Alex Kozinski, 9th District
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery - Churchill
All I know is anytime I am around cops in public I now steer clear. I don't want to be caught in any crossfire.
Don't confuse enthusiasm for competence

A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.
