You are quite correct. Cops get it from the top and the bottom. Their Chiefs and Sheriff’s are politicians paving the way for their next career and care little for the welfare of the troops. The community has been brainwashed to believe the cops are bad and support is faltering. It has always been a tough job, but I would not want to be I this profession today.
Alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide will be on the rise as cops will internalize all off this.
living in communities having both, i go for sheriff dept the people elect the sheriff ,in most places we had a bad one got rid of him quick. but most police chiefs are now hired by non elected city managers not the council and many places the mayor manager city code does not allow the mayor or town council deal with the chief or dept managers and the chief only answers to the manager and too many times he is a outsider as is the manager and there tenure is shortso there no affection or loyalty to the towns

As Hillary would screech: “At this point, what difference does it make?”
Would a sign that read “POLICE LIVES DON”T MATTER” been better?
I wonder how many Police Officers were employed by the Cardinals to make the stadium safe for their millionaire players to throw, hit and catch a ball?

Maybe we should quit sending $$$$$ to Iran North Korea, Pakistan, Turkey etc………. And start spending our tax dollars to protect our power grid, nuclear sites and other areas in which we are vulnerable. Like he border.
If only our elected officials gave a damn about the tax paying citizens of their own country.
