There is proof inside many peoples' electronics.  Proof that a marketing
group would contract development of a frightening virus.  A virus that
responds to peoples' keystrokes and browsing habits, and changes what
people see on their devices.  A virus that alters political behavior en
masse, for profit.

Here you begin treating people with disdain ("bad apples") which you
criticize doing in the paragraph prior.

Let's not treat people with disdain.

I've bumped into some really nice police officers.  It seems highly
unfortunate they direct people to prisons instead of mediation.

I have not found any avenue to mediate with police.  We need police
