Same as it ever was.
I’m glad Lawrence differentiated between most cops and the prick-bastards who get off on attacking a peaceful demonstration. Cops who act out their hatred of people who are “different” – because of color or education or that they have the gumption to dissent – are not different in the least from the cowards who join lynch mobs. Excepting their immunity from prosecution.
Though I have obvious reasons to remember a few coppers who beat and attacked demonstrators – scars 🙂 – I always smile remembering the state troopers assigned to follow the car I was in in a southern border state on the way to a sit-in in 1959 who pulled alongside to offer directions to the town while we were gazing blankly at a road map by the side of the road.
