I agree completely. As the wife of an officer, you would not believe the number of times my husband uses LESS force than he is allowed to by law. But when people act like jackasses he takes it as far as he is trained to go.
But sure, let people like some folks here keep throwing hissy fits when anyone dares question them. You are going to get the law enforcement you deserve - in other words, none or maybe just the bottom of the barrel. You will not get any decent people to be cops because it's not worth the grief. Crappy attitude for crappy pay? Not for much longer. And then when you really want a cop for something, good luck with who shows up.
Big publishers can keep their editors. As a reader, I'm willing to read a few typos if it means my ebooks are much cheaper. My upper limit for ebooks has become $6 - above that, the books I've read are not of a significantly higher quality than the cheaper ones, they just maybe have a prettier cover image (and how often would I look at that, anyway?) and a lot more hype.
