  1. Very interesting podcast. It’s the first I’ve had the opportunity to listen to and I will come back for more. One thing kind of struck home with me and it concerns the unknown factor of human nature and the inherent risk it provides. I have a slightly different approach to dealing with this. As I hear you point to Scripture, I’m reassured you’ll understand the fallen nature of mankind. All people, by this very nature, are inherently sinful, predisposed to doing bad things and being motivated by pure selfishness. If you allow for each person to live down to their total depravity, you’ll not be surprised when they fail to disappoint. In essence, what I’m saying is if you accept each person you interact with is capable of being the person who tries to hurt you, it is much easier to navigate the interactions.

    Sure, some people exceed the depraved mindset and show genuine compassion and love for one another, but I accept those to be exceptions; not the norm. At the end of the day, I’m not surprised when a person behaves just as they’re predisposed to behave!

    Those are merely my thoughts. While I do not disagree with your viewpoints, I approach law enforcement with a slightly different outlook. It has served me well for a few years.
