Headlines Read Out

What is our justice system coming to? Over the past few months I’ve seen headlines in the newspaper about a police officer who shot a man because he thought the man had a gun (he was holding a black kitchen spoon) and a judge who raped a woman and was caught on tape. Several other cases have come up that I can’t remember the details of, but it seems to just go on and on. Where are everyone’s morals? Isn’t that like, a job description for police officers; to want to fight crime, not commit it? It scares me to know that the men and women who are supposed to be protecting our rights could slip up like that. I can’t say that all police officers or judges or safety figures are like that, and we’re all human. But I’ve noticed that it is becoming more and more likely to see cops on the news for bad reasons.
