Policing in America: The Power of Something Else

By Steve Pomper   There are too many police incidents where loud, cop-haters dislike the force police have used, including lethal. They condemn the officers involved for not doing “something else.” However, they rarely offer what something else should have been.

By Steve Pomper  I was first made aware of this deplorable incident when I saw a tweet from the NPA’s own Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith.
