Ron Meuser, an employment lawyer in Minneapolis, spoke with the Daily Caller’s Samantha Renck about police morale, the 150 police officers seeking disability for PTSD following the Minneapolis riots and more.
“The reality is that these officers — most of these officers have been working for 15, 20, 25 years within the department,” Meuser said, “and during the course of their careers they have been exposed to literally hundreds of what we call ‘traumatic incidents’ known as criteria A events. So, this may be suicides, murders, stabbings, shootings, infant deaths, sexual abuse, whatever it is that these officers have been exposed to over the years.”
Meuser added, “they’ve all been to generally muscle up and deal with it, cope with it in their own way, in order to get up each day and go out and serve their community.”
However, the riots following George Floyd’sdeathwas “almost like the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
