If police are supposed to serve and protect the public, why wear body armor, guns, tasers and helmets like robocops of some dystopian future? Why are they spending more time at the target range than learning about diversity and defusing anger?

Because people try to kill police for showing up at inconvenient times. The tasers were invented to try to avoid using the gun. Now you blame them for even having those. Body armor? It helps you survive being shot.

Perhaps you would like to volunteer as one of those unarmed "conflict resolution" officers to help gangsters decide to stop shooting at each other and at cops? Maybe that works in West Loveboat or Beverly Hills, but how about New York, Chicago, LA, DC, New Orleans, St Louis? All need the help and all have that progressive vision you like. Smile, give the shooters a hug, and save the city.
