2 Things

Remember Andy Griffith? It used to be closer to that way here, too. What changed it is the drug war. The drug war was really a war on teens and minorities, so whole generations have grown up to mistrust the police, and as a result, fewer people are attracted to it as an avocation. It's a spiral.

The other problem is guns. As guns are demonized, some people are nervous around them, and as people often do, they blame someone else for how they feel.

What do you think?
