We’ll probably never know the truth……
Here’s another fascinating story. A small-town Georgia police chief contacts 911 at 4 a.m. on January 1 to say his wife is shot. When the operator asks if he knows who shot her, he says, “me.”
He and his wife were laying in bed, along with his department-issued Glock. Interesting bedmate? Apparently not. Initial reports say she was shot in the back twice. Mysteriously, that’s now changed to one shot in the back….. Fishy?
Of. Course. Not. He’s not under arrest. Charges haven’t even been filed. You don’t think it’s because of the color of his skin, do you? How many African-Americans would be afforded that leniency?
Often it feels like we’re not evolving as a species. It’s been said change takes place either by evolution or revolution. Repeatedly. What’s it going to take to bring the law enforcement community into the 21st century? Even the 20th century.
We live in a great country but these events underscore that it’s very far from being the smartest and most humane.
