With all the talk about gun control, I am one among many asking, how about police control? How about taking military equipment away from the police? How about the fact that way more people are killed by cops with guns than random dudes with guns in the U.S.?

If You So Scared, Why Are You the Police?

It's a short piece but so important. It really drives the point home.

Why are you the police?

Why are you the police?
