Ted Rall – Draft, not hire, cops

Ted Rall, in his post-Henry Louis Gates column, argues for draftee cops, not hired ones, using the same arguments many of us do for a draftee military.

And, they’re some damned good arguments in both cases. We might weed out the type of people who glorify in brutality. Or the appearance of that. You know, the type of local police who are “jackbooted,” whether active in thuggery or not.
