Ranting against fearmongering of police in Binghamton and nation

Police in Broome County
Rating 3.00 out of 5

There is a serious issue in our culture where police are considered bad guys and to be feared (especially by minorities) – yet its not accurate. Still this does not prevent some educators from trying to promote and instill this fear in others, justified only by the color of skin and social media promotion of isolated events thousands of miles away. So in a bit of a raw rant, we address the fearmongering for what it is. Comments are always welcome.
