Johns Hopkins’ claim that it will create a model police force for the country is nearly impossible in practice. It is clear that the police force will only answer to a small class of administrators and not to community members, residents and lawmakers, as any proper police force should.

I’m very troubled after reading this article because it doesn’t sound like the Hopkins I typically know.
