What makes a community safe?
Is it police officers decked out in military gear patrolling the streets, watching over peaceful protests, or raiding homes of people suspected of low level crimes?
Is it expanding the federal death penalty?
Is it local police being able to instantly harvest, test, and catalog the DNA of people arrested (but not tried and convicted?)
None of those proposals will enhance community safety, but they will invade our privacy, restrict our liberty, and further the deterioration of the “rule of law” into “rule of fear” in our neighborhoods.
These are just some of the “solutions” being proposed in Congress this year.
