Enjoying Southland — a gritty LA cops/detectives TV series.  They dramatize each episode to the max, but there’s a strong realism about the show.  As I say, gritty.  LA has to be a very difficult place to be a cop.

Despite their recent bad press, I’m very pro-police.  I think they are heroes — keeping the rest of us from turning into savages.

My Story


It’s the police who keep Americans from turning into savages, particularly in large cities. A society without police would turn into a primal and deadly environment.  Police are really the vanguards of orderly society.  In many ways, they are the heroes.  That there are a small number of corrupt and/or unnecessarily vicious cops changes none of that.
