"The emotional reaction is to blame the police officers, cops gone wild ... I think there is an underlying issue of crime in this community that has these peace officers on edge, they're stressed out. People forget that it is a very stressful career, a lot more stress than you and I have in our careers. They have to confront the worst stuff that they see ... I get both sides, and I get the reactionary part to blame the rogue cops and what have you. ... The last thing we want to do is create a bunch of hysteria on the police officers without getting the facts in order" -- Jeff Block/Coeur d'Alene.
