“The fact that they stand in groups and say things you do not like does not make them a mob.” – Olivia Pope, The Lawn Chair, Season 4 of Scandal

After watching The Lawn Chair episode, I am speechless and left with mixed feelings. I don’t know what to say but it really did make me understand it’s an episode everyone should see. I think it’s a real eye opener. What impacted me the most I feel was the cops’ speech of how people are taught to see cops as bad people and fear them. Of course he still deserved to be punished for killing an innocent person, but his speech was pretty valid and powerful. Personally I have always been afraid of cops for many reasons and one of them being they would harm my family or me. I think in this generation people just started to not care of the consequences and acted more freely, which in ways is a good thing because people shouldn’t have to live in fear forever. In this case for the cops it wasn’t a good turn for them. There are people who show no respect towards cops when they truly deserve it because not all cops are bad and these people go out to protect others and risk their own life. At this point I am pretty much rambling but what I am trying to say is everyone should be treated equally and show more respect.
