I asked a question that I was advised to narrow down, and after initially found the suggestion frustrating since it's a question that's difficult to ask in a narrow, succinct way. It's a big topic, but I believe Politics Stack Exchange is a community uniquely capable of delivering answers not plagued by the polarized opinions presented when I bring up the topic in a less academic environment.
The question is now titled:
"How can police be held accountable for wrongdoing without deterring their ability to enforce the law?"
How can police be held accountable for wrongdoing without deterring their ability to enforce the law? To narrow down the scope of this question, I'm looking for political avenues at the state level of government.
But since editing I've received a second close vote, so I'm looking for direction of how I might further narrow / improve it.
