After reading [url=this">http://rabble.ca/babble/anti-racism-news-and-initiatives/robert-louis-ga... thread (re Prof. Gates)[/url], I started thinking, "Why aren't there more progressives involved in law enforcement? Progressives aren't shy about working in most areas of government to promote the change they believe in, so why not in law enforcement, too, an area which could do with some change?"
Now, I am only basing this on my own experience and observations -- and, for all I know, law enforcement agencies may be filled to the brim with progressives from top to bottom (though I doubt that).
Hence my question: How many friends of yours who are progressives are also cops?
