I had a rather epic rant begun about the law enforcement (lack of) response to the Texas shooting last week.
But. I just can't.
Too many people are talking, and the obvious is plain to see.
It feels as if the past 25 years of lessons we've learned, taught, and tried to change the mindset on have been completely wasted.
Men and women who swore to serve and protect abandoned their duty and chose cowardice.
Decades of promoting risk-adverse leadership and preaching officer safety as the supreme mantra above all else have resulted in a fundamental failure of the profession, yet again.
All I can do now is pray for the victims and their families, and hope that maybe this will lead to a soul-searching among those still wearing the badge nationwide.
