Looking for something new to watch this weekend? Here's the latest.
David: From the article -- "Best practices in policing these days is to de-escalate, not escalate," said John Noakes, an associate professor of sociology at Arcadia University, where he researches the policing of political protests. It's hardly a novel idea. -- I would like to speak to associate professor Noakes. His method of minimizing or eliminating burning buildings, smashed glass storefronts being looted, rock-throwing chaos. How exactly would Noakes deescalate that situation? When law enforcement dons riot gear, that is protective gear worn in these chaotic situations. Is the idea of leaving ones firearms at the police station a wise choice to deescalate answering the call? Hmmm, what a novel idea.
