“Because it is so pervasive, violence is often seen
as an inevitable part of the human condition – a fact
of life to respond to, rather than to prevent.” (a quote from of all places….the World Health Organization). This is one statement we can probably actually believe to be true.
There are many reasons why a human being kills another human being. Cops unfortunately are included in the percentage of our population that kills. There always has been and always will be a percentage of or a portion of (however you want to scale it) the population that is violent in nature and killing another is often the result of their rage. Humans are the one species that kills its own more so than any other living species. Violence is part of the human condition (human nature).
Violence (injury and killing others) while not acceptable is inevitable. It is an issue of law and order more so than a health/medical issue; though mental illness plays a part in the violent nature of many.
So, while we must have the discussion, and it is one we have over and over again, it isn’t going to change anything or much anyway. No matter what new policy is implemented (experiment) there is always going to be a dirty cop somewhere. Can things improve? We like to think so, and we have the talk to show that we are doing something. But it isn’t possible to solve a problem even when we put in place a resolution when it (the problem) is unsolvable. Doing something makes us feel better, sometimes! Right? The politicians will say all the right things and some the wrong things. It’s like a broken record player that keeps spinning the same lyrics over and over. Clergy will tell us what they always tell us. Civil Rights leaders will do the same. We know what’s coming……… but has anything really improved.
Racism is just one reason (and it is never acceptable) for someone killing another. We expect better from our police officers, but they are part of the human population; a percentage will do the wrong things and killing will continue. Law and order……….justice must prevail. The dirty cop, like anyone else must be arrested swiftly, charged and prosecuted.
This is a topic we can pick certain aspects of and have a conversation everyday. Nothing we haven’t said before, like how education (lack of), fatherless homes, on and on we go play a part . You’ve heard this before. What has changed? Very little. The problem is as old as the prehistoric man.
The question is can you change the violent part of human nature? I don’t think so. We can only hope to minimize it.

The rioters don’t loot books………they’ll vandalize the store front windows because that is fun/exciting. They don’t want work boots……they’ll take the Nike shoes and clothing. They’ll steal the jeans, sweat shirts…………but leave the book section alone. Later we’ll see them wearing Nike shoes they couldn’t afford to pay for but had the time to loot. They won’t be wearing work boots, not even tonight when they riot and loot again. We won’t see them on their front porches reading to a friend or just for themselves, they left the books…….they won’t buy or even loot. They don’t open a pallet of bricks to lay a patio or build a home, but they’ll throw them at cops. Oh the irony of it all!
Once again in NYC, Bill de Blasio does nothing while Macy’s (and others) is trashed and looted.
