The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword
Of course, nothing is as simple as it sounds and I do not wish to create false hope. Planning, Conceptualization and initiative can be fruitful but all power needs to be judiciously applied so that what is right prevails.
If you have read this far, you can read and write and those are powerful skills that can be used to create change. Periodically politicians run for office and you can get their attention better then than any other time of the year.
If you are the only one who has a concern about the handling of rights then you are wasting your time but if there is a large group of people wanting change, then opportunity is knocking.
I will be writing in the future about the need for Surrender Instructions. I am constantly aware through the news media that interactions between police and the arrested are complicated.
We need to know the best way to show the authorities that we pose no threat. When I was a child, Hands Up was enough. That does not seem to work anymore so there is a need to know how to surrender to the police. Knowing what to do can save the lives of Police and Citizens and may help avoid needless situations that escalate in to confrontations and struggle and worse. If you have recommendations on this topic, I would like to read your ideas.
