Kenosha Shooting: Proof Cops are Not Trained

The Kenosha shooting, of a man in the back 8 times is proof that Wisconsin, and most other states, are not TRAINING POLICE.
We must stop fast tracking soliders into civilian law enforcement, and train officers to provide help.
That means not arresting the homeless, but helping them get social services help for that night.
That means not arming them with military equipment, but the minimal forces needed in a civil society.
That means using bolos instead of tasers...but they grab a 45 first, because they were trained that way in war.

Keep peacful protesting, don't allow the right wing to find one small idiot throwing a rock. Find the thousands of citizens who march, in peace for peace.

Wisconsin was the leader in environmental protections, civil rights and respect.
Since Walker and the fringe radical facist right, Wisconsin has lost that standing and Kenosha's shooting will further send our status into the shithole nation that Trump has created.

Keep Diligent and find the "Good Trouble"

1. Proof?

I'm not defending the shooting and I'm certainly no fan of Snotty Walker, but you used the word "proof." Where's the proof?

2. OK, here's what changed in 2014

This article explains the procedural change to fast-track soliders into police.
I cannot find anything that has changed it back to requiring soldiers to go through traditional police schooling.

3. The kid with the AR-15 after curfew not stopped/

The 17 yr old, from Illinois, was running around with an AR-15 after curfew.

Why didn't the police stop him?
-- an AR-15 is not a small object and should have been seen by everyone.

Thanks to Apple & Android, for putting great cameras on thier smartphones.
--We would not be seeing these horrific shootings without them

For Wisconsin Voters... Can you see how important voting is now?
