Trayvon Martin's mother calls for more cops, says she disagrees with calls to 'defund' police

She's right, training is key.  I'm not going to make a judgement call on George Floyd's death because I wasn't there and don't have the whole story.  A knee on the neck is not something I recall being taught though.  You can never have too much training. 

I'll add that burnt out police officers make more mistakes or poor decisions than when they're sharp.  Under-staffing causes overworking the officers you have.  I know. I've been there.  For about a year on the day before my days off, I'd have mandatory overtime for a second shift, to the point I started to consider it part of my schedule.  By the end of that second shift, I know I was less effective and patient than with some rest.  It never got to the point this did though.
