We should be looking for the “best” and not the “marginally qualified” in law enforcement, shouldn’t we?

Perhaps concentrating on education so more would obtain at least a high school diploma, making the “baby daddies” responsible for the children they leave behind, targeting the gangs and drug dealers, having black business leaders, politicians, professional athletes become more involved in mentoring – wouldn’t those ideas make a difference if implemented?

Instead we have marches with leaders like Sharpton, the race-baiting tax cheat, that show many that the marches lack veracity and legitimacy due to those leaders. Looting, rioting, blocking traffic, burning – crimes that also cause loss of empathy for the “cause”.
