On the one hand, these policing controversy threads are making me sad. On the other, it's clear that we need to have a lot more discussion in order to educate people and change what people will accept.

My only guess is that right now, we're a big fucking panicky nation, and have come to tolerate the loss of liberties in favor of security at pretty much every level and in every context.
What security???

The police should be subject to, and should obey the very same laws they enforce. That includes laws against threats, violence, and coercion. This ain't some third world country or Mexico (yet)
