Comment: PTSD

(See in situ)


It is important to remember that PTSD is epidemic, not only in returning vets, but in people who live in bad neighborhoods.

The police departments not only hire vets, but their officers experience violence on the job, sometimes. It would be easy to feel like the uniform is a target, and to "shoot first."

Ending the drug war would help. It was common to look on the police as allies prior to the drug war.
