Law Enforcement

Does A Law Enforcement Oath Mean Anything Anymore?

Certainly, following lawful orders is important, but notice that there is nothing mentioned about obedience to leadership.  That’s because following orders is between the officers and their leaders.  Upholding their oath is between them and us, the American people.  We expect them to make judgements about right and wrong, and the oath is their assurance that they will do so conscientiously.
