Very nice.

Very nice. This oped/essay is quite deep, and reflects a view of policing that I haven’t seen expressed quite so clearly.

Nashville’s chief of police got an angry letter from a citizen about why he had been so kind to protesters — serving coffee and hot chocolate instead of threatening to arrest them. The chief wrote back and published his letter, and I highly recommend it, as a thoughtful short essay about civil society, the relationship of citizens, government, and police, and about how people form their social perceptions.
