It's easy to see what a polarized issue the police department is to this county. Some people hate the police and others love them. Neither are correct in their stance as it is our responsibility as free thinking Americans to be critical thinking in our assessments of public SERVANTS.
Public complaints about police actions should be taken seriously before a civilian review board. The only reason police don't want this to happen is because they have the power within their departments to hide what mistakes they make without the people being privy to the process.
City employees call themselves "family". Those of us who pay their salaries are not allowed access to the inner "family" and do not get to see the reality of what goes on when cops kill people such as Cheri Moore, Martin Cotten, James Honda and the myriad of other poor people who have succumbed to the cruelty of north coast "justice".
Unfortunately those who discriminate on either side of this issue are not clearing up the smoke screen that keeps the affairs of the police obscure and detrimental to free expression. We must have a civilian review of police activity both in our cities and the county to clear up our understanding of what is really going on!
