Protection is a racket. Safe and secure = locked up or tied down.
Police are inventing work for themselves to maintain the numbers that justify supervisors’ promotion and increased salaries.
The diversity in hiring mandate seems to have prompted the hiring of physically and mentally incompetent persons in need of protective equipment to compensate for a lack of practical and personal skills.
Since the LEOs are mostly in vehicles, having to patrol on foot is irksome to them. They are being physically stressed.
Finally, public protests are evidence of prior failures to respond appropriately to complaints. Police have worked for decades to render the populace compliant in order to avoid complaints.
