    I listened to this https://jockopodcast.com/2022/06/15/...se-assessment/ on my drive to Phoenix on Friday. For those who are not familiar, Jocko is a retired SEAL who provides training and consultation for businesses and law enforcement. He does a good but grim analysis of all that went wrong with law enforcement. It's a long and emotional listen, but he explains the situation with sympathy towards the parents and condemnation of the folks who were supposed to be in charge.

    I'm more interested in what's wrong with a large portion of society such that we have an enormous and accelerating violence & gun culture love affair. Tactical screw-ups and the resulting loss of innocent lives are endemic to hot engagements; the trick, it seems to me, is to minimize our cultural propensity and practical potential for them.

    Once again: Amateurs (and poor thinkers) try to get out of the bad situations they've entered or created; professionals try to avoid creating or entering in them in the first place.

    On a somewhat related note, vis-a-vis the results of social & economic challenges to the formerly unquestioned primacy of the white US male, is this interesting (if not surprising) look at why evangelicals love Herschel Walker, Donald Trump and the like:

    I rode my bike this AM, then putzed around with my bikes and read.

    iPhone’s ringer was off because I forgot to turn it back on after the movies last PM.

    Then I finally look at it, and omg…
    Old and slow, but I used to be young and slow.

    18-20 year old male, semi-automatic rifle, largely Jewish suburb of chicago, Highland. It's shame there's no pattern otherwise we as a society could act.

    goddamn, briefly saw it being mentioned and thought it was one of those incidents that most large cities would experience in the warmer months.

    didn't realize it was premeditated, someone raining down bullets from height, akin to the UT belltower case...
