That is also my hope - that their best instincts take over. I've been a cop and trained cops, and it takes strong leadership. Too bad their union and their publications support Trump. I just wrote about one of their most popular magazines endorsing Trump.

My experience was in a town of about 12,000. Needless to say, I cleaned that up after I won and appointed a new chief who showed them the way.

It's all leadership and training and if the wrong people are training them, they're being taught to act like an occupying army. The results, as we know, are not good.

I'm worried, too.

Our best hope is that the military will continue to defend the Constitution. If so, any uprising would be quickly put down.

Thank you so very much for reading my work and taking the time to comment.
