Death of George Floyd mandates police training

Immediate positional asphyxiation training is being order for Chicago police officers. Chicago police department superintendent David Brown states ’I want to make it clear that this behavior is not acceptable in Chicago, will not be tolerated under my command, and quite frankly has no place in law enforcement anywhere.’ This follows after the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

Changing from the original title and mission of PEACE officers to the repurposing and retitling them as POLICE officers, along with the militarization of police departments nationally is a recipe for disaster in a free and open society. That change shifted the entire psychology and mission of all of law enforcement. It removed them from being a part of the community, a trusted guide, problem solver, and a voice of reason use for mediation, and turned them into an enforcer, a problem seeker instead of solver. It separated them from the community, placing above and win a generally oppressive role, not a collaborative one.  It is that simple change of title and mission that has lead to the erosion of civil right and liberties. The role of an enforcer demands it, and we have let it happen over time. Giving up liberties for temporary security leaves you undeserving, and without either in the end.

Given the state of the riots I think it should also mandate some better parenting and personal responsibility

How about just banning choke holds instead of training cops to de them better. If you’ve got a guy on the ground in a 4 on 1 there’s no need.
