Outcry Over Police Beating

March 24, 1991

Somehow I sense a connection between the "duck shoot" performed by our pilots in which thousands of Iraqis were slaughtered in their indefensible bottleneck retreat and the brutal beating of unarmed Rodney King by Los Angeles policemen. This new "kick-ass" mentality of the empowered against the weak is frightening. Is our compassion as a nation eroding? In our zeal to bolster our self-esteem, have we forgotten that we are dealing with fellow humans?
