PUBLIC SAFETY PIRATES

Problem

Public safety organizations include emergency management agencies, law enforcement agencies, fire departments, rescue squads, and Emergency Medical Services. However, it is police activity which continues to make headlines.

The recent events of police officers shooting unarmed individuals, or of breaking he laws they are being paid to enforce is nothing new. Here are just a few examples, following a quick search. We will begin with the good, followed by the bad, and then the ugly.
