Let's just get right into this: Something is going very wrong in this country, and it's all happening very quickly. You turn on the news or log into Twitter (something I do about 15 times a day too often) and the headlines just come at you like waves of electroshock therapy.
Let's be honest: This is a moral failing on a widespread scale. Too many rank-and-file officers had in fact begged for this new abusive climate. You can't really say they are "just following orders" -- because they wanted these orders. And too many good people within the ranks of Homeland Security are afraid to speak up. This all sounds tragically familiar.
