Vincent Carroll on Policing

Vincent Carroll, Colorado’s greatest living columnist, points out that he has long advocated various police reforms. “But that doesn’t mean I have to buy into today’s simplistic pieties that cops, as a rule, are bigoted and brutal, that nothing has changed in 40 years and that it’s easy to identify suspects who pose little threat,” he writes. He relies heavily on data of Colorado police shootings compiled by CPR to put events in context. I do think policing today is better than it has been in the past but that it continues to fall far short of where it should be.
