Discuss some issue of personal, local, national, or international concern and its importance to you.
In society there is always changes, sometimes good, sometimes bad, but it seems up until recently the changes in society have been nothing but negative. This may seem like a bold statement, but it is completely nothing but the truth. Although there may be many negative changes one was has seemingly been ticking out like a sore thumb as of now. Many may say differently some may say the same, but the way people view police officers now is in a complete and utter negative way. One might be able to argue differently, and those people will; all it takes is a look on social media or in the news and the answer becomes clear.
For a long time police were members of society the people really liked, didn’t feel uncomfortable with them around or any of that. However this subject has done a complete three sixty. This isn’t a result of the police or the people, it’s the result of bad publicity and some individuals being questionable to whether or not they should be able to be law enforcement officials. The answer is no absolutely not. Some of the individuals in which are the ones who have been shown on news and social media are those who take the job to an extreme that never had to be reached in the first place. This extreme is what is making the people question whether or not the people they are looking towards for protection are out to help or harm them. What the public is leaning more toward at this time and place I harm them.
The subject of police and the public has become nothing but dismayed. It hits at home very hard because the police officers in my family are good hard working citizens that do nothing but get up go to work and be fair to the people risking their own lives on a day to day basis. So when social media and the news bad mouth police officers and how they ae more harm than anything, or are disruptive and over forceful it hits right at home because that is only a select few of them not all of them. Those are the ones who should be forced to resign or have their cases looked into as a normal court case would be looked at. The thing is the ones giving the bad name need to go before society loses hope on the authorities and turns on them as a whole, and if and when this happens it is going to be a mess for everybody instead of a select few.
Therefore something needs to be done and quickly before the good and the bad become one. Whether it’s incarceration or forced resignment there is a right thing to do and its waiting for someone to take action.
