Some thoughts on policing...and pastoring.
 You don’t get praise for doing your job without sexually assaulting people. That’s just doing your job.
 You don’t get to resent not getting praise for doing your job without sexually assaulting people. That’s just creepy.
 You don’t get a free pass, or even extra points, for doing a job that asks you to step into contexts others would not step into. That is true of any job that comes with a uniform, and many that don’t. And it provides cover for abuse (“If you had to deal with the level of crap we deal with day after day, you’d need to ‘let off steam’ sometimes, to...”).
 You don’t get to respond to valid concerns and legitimate calls for culture change and systemic reform by making out that you are the victim. You don’t get to sulk about having your feelings hurt. You don’t get to trot out that ‘one bad apple’ BS. If you want to own celebration of all that is good, you need also to own lament and true repentance over all that is evil.
 This is not an attack. It is a word to the wise.
