Well Thursday and Friday’s events have knocked this one out of the news cycle. But I still have thoughts. What we saw (again) was a massive failure both before and after the event of government officials in performing their duties. Now I know they do not have a duty to protect, but I am starting to wonder if some accountability needs to be put in place. Should we codify what a mass shooting is and put penalties in place for those who stand around and do nothing? Should we codify chain of command policies that allow officers to effectively relieve the sire commander for duty for cowardice/incompetence and do what needs to be done? These are things I am thinking about.
They are what I’ll be thinking about when I go to vote to. I want the people who represent me to be interested in real solutions.
