I tend to agree with you to a degree. Police used to be a lot more professional than they are now. There are too many hot-heads and power-hungry individuals wearing a uniform. But in all fairness, the world has changed a lot over the years and they must deal with a lot more than before. There are still some good ones. Kinda hard to group them all together. The ones that were cleared were the officers that arrived before the shooter and tried to control the situation. I don't know why Southport was called in, as the BSL police and BCSD could have handled it.
