We don’t have professional cops because the folks in charge want it that way.

From the Bulwark:


Bad police behavior keeps people in line no matter how tasteless it looks on the screen.  The folks in charge, sometimes real estate developers, sometimes financial players, sometimes municipalities that outsourced their factories see it as easier to keep the population in check with bad police behavior than have a more just economy, or better housing policy, or a fairer economic system.

Evidenced by Senator Tom Cotton who called for American troops to be called into the streets to put down a rebellion by African American folks who have been kept down for generations.
