The trend in LE includes an increase of video and audio related monitoring of our populous by their biological "finger prints".
At the same time our populous is being deterred, from audio and visual recordings of their public interactions w/ LE, by arrest. It's going to trial: Link
The guy who recorded a LEO pulling his gun on him while being pulled over on his crotch-rocket and then put it on You-tube is facing 16 years... Link
Five-0 loves the people of his City, Country, SF and dogs. Pete
is an American hero whether he will admit it or not.
The line that separates their titles is not the line that separates their potential to contribute positively to this Country. We may not all feel like "Brothers", in the same way we do with those we work with, but it is still Team America.
Can we agree that LE is being taught to view it's people as potential terrorists, that LE IS NOT the enemy but the enforcement of law

If people are mad at the corruption of Gov. they can't only be mad at "the other side" and it's supporters. That is a barrier to breaking the "divide and conquer" of our people by turning "us vs them" into "America vs America".
It will inevitably involve very difficult admissions relating to the role they play in their job. There is an inherent self-preservation, safety, efficiency and loyalty motivation that makes this a difficult "case by case" issue. (ETA: not talking about wikileaks)
Prayers for all who seek justice for the US.
