Yes, of course, you ask questions, Kay. That is the point. Don t however, ask the softball questions. Ask the tough questions. Like a reporter.
Ask them why SWAT was once reserved for dire scenarios, but has now become routine for low level activity like weed.
Ask them about the cost of militarization for those "free" vehicles like bearcats. Ask the total cost of a "free" bearcat after they pay for gas, maintenance, storage, training, insurance, and the cost to pick up the vehicle.
Ask why they continue to do roadblocks (checkpoints) even though the research from the FBI, U of Maryland, etc. shows that roadblocks are ineffective at catching drunks or deterring them.
Ask them why they perform asset forfeiture, the process of taking someone s property without any due process. Ask why it has risen sharply over the past 15 years.
Ask them why they continue their overzealous enforcement of consensual activity like weed when places are decriminalizing it. Ask why they are making criminals out of people for consensual activity by adults.
Ask why they focus on all kinds of consensual activity, such as gambling, escorts, reselling sports tickets, etc.
Ask why they act less like Andy Griffith and more like thugs. Ask why that cop told homeless man Kelley Thomas I m "about to fvck you up" to the point of killing Thomas.
Ask if their ridealong is merely a silly little PR exercise and if they are going to show you some real indiscretions.
