Obama Calls For Americans To Help Heal The Rifts Between Law Enforcement And Communities

President Barack Obama called on Americans to help "heal the rifts" between law enforcement and communities while giving remarks at the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

"It takes a special kind of courage to be a peace officer," Obama said. "To be the one people turn to in their most desperate moments. To be willing to run into a dangerous situation, when everyone else is running the other way."

May 15 is Peace Officers Memorial Day, which is part of National Police Week. Obama and others marked the occasion after a year of strained relations between police and citizens around the U.S.

"We can work harder, as a nation, to heal the rifts that still exist in some places between law enforcement and the people you risk your lives to protect," Obama added later. "We owe it to all of you who wear the badge with honor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to President Obama: it is all in the training, sir, and giving police the ability to de-escalate a situation, and talk down someone who could be a danger to himself (or herself) and others).

And the more IDF members, or ex-members are allowed to train US police officers, the more average US citizens will feel like Palestinians.
