As a criminal justice professional, Gallagher works with, and against, police officers as fellow criminal justice professionals. No profession or professional is without its flaws. We do not deserve to be put on a pedestal, or to be demonized. We deserve to be judged for our actions, not our role. Law enforcement officers, like criminal defense lawyers, see some of the less attractive aspects of life and people. Ideally, we can learn insights from these experiences. Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, a group of law enforcement professionals advocating legalization of drugs, deserves credit. When we ask our politicians to enact bad laws, which our law enforcement officers are paid to enforce, our courts are called upon to administer – we all lose. Let’s make an ongoing effort to change the laws to make them fair, rational, and protect human rights and liberty.
