Re: White Lives Don't Matter
An Enforcement Officer for many years I do not and never had divided people into Black and White.
I divide people into Pillocks and Non Pillocks.
I do use profiling for that.
I do not consider that it makes me a Racist.
I lived in an Agricultural Area, everyone carried a knife.
Firearms where as common as muck.
Never, ever a problem, just a fact of life and never a threat.
I worked in an Urban Area.
Very, very different, absolutely a danger as there was or is no reason to carry a knife or a firearm.
Would we target Church meetings in the day or night?
A complete waste of time, they where out there helping the most vulnerable.
Did we target the Gangs?
Yes, most definitely.
Does that make me a Racist?
I think not, just a realist.
