Gee, all it takes is re-training?

Uh, I don't think so.  A cop who happens to be a thug cannot have the thuggery trained out of him. NYC's and other burgs police problems stem from whom they hire, their policies and their procedures.  All too frequently they wind up with too many otherwise unemployable punks.  They give them a badge and then have to pay out settlement costs for false arrests as they invoke one more round of re-training.

NYC's police, as one example,  are exactly what the NYC voters want; they voted for it by electing the assorted officials who make all the appointments and establish the rules.  If anyone doesn't like the current operation, then I ask what's your voting record over the past 20-30 years?  Don't forget, it you don't vote, you do not matter, you have to endure voter preferences.
