EDITORIAL:         Thoughts on Deconstructing the Police

An idea the sheer silliness of which has not blown it away only because the major media , evidently in need of further distraction from real news, puff zombie life into it. Pursuing the woke rationale put forward to advance this proposal, should we not first deconstruct the military? A much larger target, that would accomplish much more of the good sought by this proposal, would it not?

It seems evident that neither the governance of America nor the common sense of its voters are taken seriously any more. Perhaps this attitude on the part of those leaders is that which led said voters to elect President Trump? If so, supported by images of fatuous Congressional Democrats awkwardly kneeling in Congress may support a repeat in November… or not, of course.

More seriously, if human societies need police, then said police need policing for the same reason: the inevitable presence of non-conforming humans. Add that societal values shift and that requires a matching shift in policing. If the need for police in human society is perennial, so is their need for reform. Policing, like the rest of hyman government, is red queen’s race.
