with orlando still unfolding today a thought struck me in an attempt to analyze how this is starting to happen so frequently. I thought of wartime mentality, in which the enemy is dehumanized through propaganda to make it psychologically easier to kill them. then it struck me that with police being trained to remain aloof and detached in horrendous circumstances, doesn't this dehumanize them in the eyes of the public? If they don't seem human doesn't it make them easier for someone who is unstable to kill them? The really bad part is if this is the case it seems the police are the architects of their own problem. I don't need to ask, but "any thoughts"
