Sanity And Open Minds.

We have said before that all police are not bad and that police departments must work to rid themselves of bad cops. We have also said that all citizens are not innocent and are looking to provoke responses from police.

The best course of action is for everyone to step back, think, and try to put themselves in the other person’s position.

One person did just that.

Jarrett Maupin, a vocal social activist and minister in Arizona recently accepted a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department invitation to go through some “use of force” training the police go through.

The results are stunning and show that the police are not all bad and have to make split second decisions, and that some protestors are open and willing to see things from a different perspective.

This is something that more departments should think of doing and more activists should do as well.

It is far past the time to start building bridges and understanding.
