    Arthur Rizer is a former police officer and 21-year veteran of the US Army, where he served as a military policeman. Today, he heads the criminal justice program at the R Street Institute, a center-right think tank in DC. And he wants you to know that American policing is even more broken than you think.

    “That whole thing about the bad apple? I hate when people say that,” Rizer tells me. “The bad apple rots the barrel. And until we do something about the rotten barrel, it doesn’t matter how many good... ...apples you put in.”
    Policing in this country is almost hopelessly messed up. In my opinion it will take an almost Apollo program level of commitment to fix it given the number of police departments and law enforcement officers in the country, as well as the fact that a sizeable number of people (maybe a majority?) do not understand just how broken policing is.

    I think if we were able to reform and eliminate (or at least greatly lessen) the systemic racism that is prevalent in our criminal justice system we would almost be home as far as dismantling the systemic racism in our society. Yes barriers to housing, education, healthcare and employment must come down too, but racism in the criminal justice system impacts all of that deeply as well.

                That misses the point completely. They weren't wearing masks. They can DIAF like any "little people" regular citizen. They don't get special privileges cause they got a badge for doing sh-tty on the SATs.

                  This isn't the point either. It isn't okay for a hamburger joint to deny service to the cops just for being cops. But that isn't what the employees said happened. What the cops say happen is not important because they are proven to lie to cover their as-ses all the time.

                    Had I left and then returned wearing a mask, do you think they would have refused me service the second time I entered the building?

                    I don’t think they would’ve. This was entirely about them being cops. They’re PITA teenagers sticking it to The Man using whatever thin excuse they had handy.

                          Are you saying that what I wrote is less likely than a group of teenage kids working at a burger joint trying to be principled? I used to be a teenager; I've not forgotten my past and the things said between friends.
