Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 5/1/2015

Humiliation shouldn't be part of a policeman's work

People say, “The police officers don’t know how to talk to us,” union President Gene Ryan said at news conference after Freddie Gray, 25, died of spinal cord injuries.

And that right there feels like an essential nugget in so many problems in police interactions. Something that could be fixed.

Respect is the fundamental element of our social contract. It is the essential rule of walking around with other human beings. And this understanding that how you talk to people matters is a rule that seems to be forgotten these days — and not just by police.

Did President Obama cause the unrest in Baltimore

It is not President Obama who is causing the divide, and it is not President Obama who is causing the unrest.

Division and anger is caused by decades-long trickle-down policies that were started in the 1980s under the Reagan Administration. There were policies that benefit the wealthiest but made serious cuts in social programs that help the working class and the poor in places such as Baltimore.

When Obama pushed for programs to help rebuild our infrastructure, it was blocked by Republicans. These were programs that would have provided thousands of jobs and would have been a benefit to everyone, including those in our inner cities. Imagaine that — jobs created and kept here and not sent overseas.

But those Republicans owned by our wealthiest blocked it. Let’s put blame where it belongs for the unrest in our country.
