It scares the hell out of me that we will not have another generation of good cops coming onto police departments because of the hatred and political environment. I don't want any of our family members or friends to join the police department, but I also don't want to live in a country where the people who should have been the cops don't want to be anymore.
I'm encouraged because this has been a hot button issue in the disability community, since the creation of accessible parking spots. There is a lot of abuse, but there are many misconceptions. My friend is not alone in believing that in order to qualify for a placard; you have to have a visible need.
