It's great that police officers want to interact with children but they should do so in ways that promote safety and kindness not cruelty and violence. That's what fishing is: torturing and killing fish. Even many who are released end up perishing from the injury and trauma they suffer from having been caught, fought, suffocated and manhandled.

Fishing isn't sport, the fish are victims not willing participants. Science has shown that fish are sentient, they suffer fear and pain. They deserve respect and compassion not cruel exploitation. "Teach your children well," teach them kindness not cruelty!
