Oh, Oh, Another Elephant!

Another elephant comes aboard in an already-crowded office.

Earlier this week I posted a blog on three major and immediate problems that are currently facing our nation’s police leadership. They need to be addressed and resolved.

They were:

— Response to public protest.

— Use of deadly force in standoffs not involving a firearm.

— The treatment of racial minorities.

I called these three problems the “elephants” in the chief’s office. Elephants because they are ignored although everyone knows they’re there.

 

There now is another elephant in the chief’s office — it is the lack of diversity in our nation’s police departments. By diversity I mean racial minorities and women.
