After three deadly shootings in the past week the American people are unsure about how those who are sworn to protect and serve the public will respond when the next mass shooting occurs as we all know by now it will.
The fact that those with the finances can purchase military grade weapons at gun shows and online. The fact that all three shooters were young white men with anger issues against people of color because of a perceived lost of status or privilege in our increasingly racially diverse country. The police now remind me of the movie Robo Cop where there was a robotic police to fight crime in the big city.
They now come to the crime scene in military grade vehicles dressed head to toe with body armor all in a non military environment. Will the American people give up certain freedoms in the name of security is a question that has to be answered by society. Gone are the days where we did not have to about looking for the nearest exit in case of a shooting event in place where people congregate. Law enforcement can now respond quickly with deadly force to neutralize the threat but only to lessen the numbers of those under assault.
Our new reality has arrived and is here to stay and law enforcement will have to be more aggressive to protect us from ourselves and the guns we love, and most importantly legally own.
