5:37 pm
>> because i've crossed the blue line. and when you do that, there's retaliation. many say respect is the key when building trust with law enforcement. especially if the officer knows the people they serve. >> when the officer pulls the gun out he don't just see me. he sees my mother, my grandchildren, and it's harder to pull the trigger. >> every time a police officer would treat me with respect. and not look at me as a criminal, that would make a big difference in my life. >> we are the epidamy of the so- called enemy of the law enforcement we push that false agenda. >> that hurts my that. that's not how i view any person in this room. no one is my enemy. >> i see bad, negative things from law enforcement. what can i do to kdka tv news that? that was a motivating factor for me to become law enforcement. >> the inmates stress they don't want to be forgotten. most say they're trying to
