PROTECTING THE PROTECTORS
Those in charge of enforcing the laws should be even more accountable than “civilians”. What I mean is, that if a non police officer would be hauled off to jail for something, a police officer should be dragged through the streets and spat on before going to jail for the same offense. Extra leeway is the opposite of what should be given to those people who have the “legal power” to compel, detain, harass, and intimidate their fellow man. Making the job of police officers easier should never be the primary aim, protecting the rights of citizens should. Harassing the innocent in order to find a guilty party is an increase in the violation of rights, not a decrease, and thus not the route to justice.
