How to Save Our Police Departments (And Our Lives)

As a first step in rooting out the cancer of bad cops that has infected OUR law enforcement community, I strongly suggest they stop wearing camouflage.

Wear a blue uniform. And oxford shoes (no boots). And a bus driver hat. And a tie. Dress like a professional and not a storm trooper. Dress like Officer Friendly. You aren’t JCVD.

Go back to looking like someone who’s job is to Protect and Serve rather than someone who’s job is to Search and Destroy.

I think you’ll be surprised how many of the bad cops quit, retire, or don’t join in the first place once we stop allowing them to play dress up as soldiers. The good cops, those who are there to Protect and Serve, will stay and we’ll all be safer and better served by it.
