Conversing with cops

David Couper has a blog post today reflecting on difficult conversations with young officers. For those unaware, he had a 30+ year police career culminating as chief in Madison, Wisconsin, before being ordained as an Episcopal priest. His commentaries on policing and society are always challenging, provocative, and deserving of attention, especially from those who think that the issues we now face are somehow new or unique.

    Wonderful – a great lesson on our history, where we have come from, and the conversations that we still need to have. We can break this cycle if we continuously engage in conversations, look deeply at our impact on our community, and think critically about how we affect crime and society.
