    Regarding policing in California State Parks, I witnessed the increase of weapons after 9/11 for State Park Rangers.

    • Don Murphy says:

      The increase in weapons is always rooted in fear. Unfortunately there are times when such fear is justified, but usually the fear becomes self fulfilling prophecy. Thank you for your comment my dear friend. Many hugs to you and Victor.
