Spread the Word: Demanding Better Policing

imagesA great two days in Mason City, Iowa at the Northern Iowa Area Community College talking to students, faculty, local police, and citizens about policing a free society. They had me up and at the TV station for the 5:30 a.m. news, breakfast, a meeting with the Criminal Justice Association, lunch with Sheriff Kevin Pals, Instructor George O’Donnell (who was my host), and College President Steven Schulz. Then at 7 p.m.. after being introduced by Mason City Police Chief Michael Lashbrook, I gave a presentation to students, police, and community members about “Policing a Free society.”

I love colleges, talking to students, faculty, police and citizens.

It is through our academic institutions that change is often begun.

Overall, we have good police in our country, but a country like ours, a free and democratic society deserves GREAT POLICE.

And to make that happen is my mission!

These are the kinds of conversations that need to go on in your community to help improve your police. After all, we are all in this together. And post-Ferguson, what an opportunity to talk about what’s important.
