NYPD Police Turn Their Backs On Any Criticism

You may well have seen the police protest in New York, when the mayor spoke at the funeral of slain officers. I thought that his comments were very supportive of the NYPD and the important role of policing in New York. However, a large number of police saw fit to turn their backs as he spoke. I'm pondering recent statements in social media that the NYPD needs to "speak with one voice" in the face of public criticism. They do have a union to perform that function - which it does quite successfully whenever there's any criticism in the media or during contract negotiations. However, this particular venue was not only completely inappropriate for this type of protest, it contributed to a public disrespect for governance, in particular, and the rule of law, in general.

Need Help Creating a Pamphlet

Hello,

I'd like to start distributing single-page zines/pamphlets/etc. that give a concise and comprehensive list of reasons why – statistically, economicaly, legally, ethically, and so on – people should not vote for Harper in the coming elections. The main difficulty with this is trying to create a document that will actually resonate with the people it's targeted towards, rather than preaching to the choir.
