What we have watched in this little flare-up is a sequence of events that is repeated again and again to the deliberate detriment of our nation. Law enforcement officers are forced into unprecedentedly tough situations by politicians and try their darndest to do their jobs under the hostile scrutiny of left-leaning critics and media bent on attacking and undermining them. Inevitably, a fraught scene is videoed that can be maliciously distorted by people who know nothing of what law enforcement requires. And then the topmost donkeys in Washington make groveling appearances on cable TV and betray the lions they command and who are doing the hard and thankless work. The inevitability and disingenuousness of it all make one’s gorge rise.
