Police State

Rant-(website)Lately, it seems, the evening news has been filled with tragic and disheartening stories of unarmed, innocent people being shot, and even killed, by police. It even seems that these occurrences are increasing in frequency. The perception by some is that the police are violent thugs who are using their position and power to exact unjustifiable punishment on the streets, while to others they are public servants carrying out their duties to the best of their abilities in trying, dangerous times. I have some thoughts on this.

See Police State in the Ramblings section of this blog.

About wordswithbrad

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
