Phil Matier: Oakland Police Accused Of Drawing Guns Too Often On Black Suspects

Phil Matier: Oakland Police Accused Of Drawing Guns Too Often On Black Suspects « CBS San Francisco.

So here it is in black and white, so to speak. These scared police officers need rigorous psychological training to prepare them to work these streets. They obviously  by into the ignorance promoted on shows such as Fox news. It is ridiculous when scared police officers, probably rookies, are thrown on the beat without a sufficient non-discrimination training course or two. It is of dire importance that these cops be trained to overcome their bias and fear. Otherwise, people of color, as well as people of lower class standing, will continue to get abused and killed by the OPD.
