How to improve policing

Want to stop all the police killings and (apparently) retaliatory killings of police? The Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds has a solution. Even if it’s unlikely to be taken.

“(1) abolish official immunity; (2) require insurance for all police; (3) give people a choice of who polices their neighborhoods. That won’t happen, though, because it’s bad for public employee unions and it doesn’t make for appealing slogans designed to drive black [Democrat] voter turnout in November of 2016.”

Repealing the drug war or, at least, decriminalizing marijuana, would help. Also getting rid of SWAT teams. But both are entrenched now and few pols are brave enough to be take them on. They might lose their chance to keep on stealing.

UPDATE:  The Harris County (Houston) deputy slain (at first link above) was killed by a black man who has now been arrested. As Instapundit says: HOW MANY MORE WILL DIE BECAUSE OF OBAMA’S RACIALLY CHARGED RHETORIC? First the black Virginia killer. Now this Texas one.
