Link: More UC Davis Commentary
From James Fallows, who received a thoughtful letter from a police officer regarding the incident at UC Davis. One quote (my emphasis in bold):
Departments and officers must remember the we (the police) only serve at the allowance/discretion of the citizenry who employs us. If we fail to treat everyone as we would have ourselves and families treated then we cease protecting and serving and begin preying and harming. I personally appreciated your logical stipulations and from a law enforcement veteran’s perspective I can see no legitimate basis for the actions that those few officers took either.
