The grown men who repeatedly mention Trayvon Martin's height and refer to him as a "thug" are basically admitting that they are afraid of black men. They relate to Zimmerman because they are as gutless as he is. Pathetic.

The bar has been set too low for the use of deadly force by law enforcement. Every time a cop shoots an unarmed citizen we hear that the officer feared for his life and the lives of his fellow cops. When the mere perception of danger, as opposed to actual danger, is considered sufficient reason to use deadly force, it allows and even encourages officers to claim they felt fear even when they did not.

The average police officer has a distorted perception of danger. Police groups exaggerate the threat that cops face and the media perpetuates the myth by dutifully repeating their narrative. The police are constantly told they're fighting a war and reminded that their job is highly dangerous and that they could be killed by anyone at any time. So they start to see the people they serve as the enemy and they begin to treat them that way.

The truth is that cops are safer today than they've been in a half century with last year being the safest year for cops since the early 1960's.

Ruth Johnson has completely misrepresented what AB230 is about. There is nothing harmful or even controversial in the bill--it only seeks to improve.

I am confused by Ms. Johnson's attempt to portray AB230 as destructive. Does anyone know what exactly her agenda is?
