Someone once told me that if you dropped a frog into boiling water, it would jump out. But if you put it into a pot and then slowly raise the temperature around it, it would boil to death. Whether this is actually true or not, it seems like a pretty good analogy as to the situation we have now put our police into. Los Angeles, as opposed to New York City's police saturation approach to policing, has always taken the approach to police work that a small elite force of professional police are better able to effectively function, because in the past the vast majority of the public supported and respected the law.
Sadly, this is no longer the case, because those in power at the city, state, and federal level have created a present reality where we no longer socialize our population with enough of an education to understand their own key role in maintaining social order. Simply stated, you can never put enough police in the streets to maintain social order, if the citizenry itself does not understand the importance of supporting the police and what they are supposed to be there for.
