BEING HUMAN, they naturally want to act out the capabilities of power and violence we have handed them. They now have a great opportunity to do so – and we knew this would happen; It’s no surprise.
1. They actually need very little of THAT CAPACITY FOR VIOLENCE in order to “protect” the rest of us. And
2. They need much less RANGE OF AUTHORITY (policing responsibilities).
We the people can reduce both (violence and authority), and still have functional policing, AND WE SHOULD WORK TO DO SO.
