Does any American seriously NOT know that there is a “Cop Culture” in this nation? Do any of us have a genuine understanding of what goes in inside that culture?
Unless you've lived inside of it, you really don't. Redditt Hudson works for the NAACP and chairs the board of the Ethics Project in St. Louis, Mo. He was a cop with the St. Louis PD for 5 years – enough time to become fully-immersed in the Cop Culture, understand it, and form an accurate opinion on it.
He has written an OpEd for the Washington Post which I link for you here.
