A reminder that rank and file cops are largely immune to the Blue Helicopter Thinking that afflicts politicians, appointed police chiefs (and appointed sheriffs), and too many Californians in general:
People write to forums and blogs (sometimes this one, in fact) to call cops jack-booted thugs and insist that they all want to disarm law-abiding citizens. I wish some of those folks could have been here. They wouldn’t have found a JBT in sight. Only hundreds and hundreds of men and women who have sworn that oath to risk their lives for the public safety, and who take with the deepest seriousness their assignment to train others to do likewise.
