First, do no good

The other day it was mentioned to me and my lovely spouse that all professions, not just medical doctors, ought to take a kind of Hippocratic Oath. In that case it was a college professor wondering if he ought to vow to "first, do no harm," but logically, we all agreed that the oath could as fruitfully be uttered by dental assistants, auto mechanics, and furniture salesmen.

Apparently now we must add the police to the list of oath-takers. Now I am aware of the average American socialist's penchant for rabble-rousing exaggeration, but apparently this latest outrage from the Man does contain a kernel of truth. Strange days.
