The Andy Griffith Show: Historical Reflections and Values
Here in this clip there is a recap on how the deputy misjudged the person visiting Andy. However there is a remark made that is muffled with comedy that is quite serious. "When you have been working as a police officer so long, your instincts take over". Specificly admist the rising levels of awareness of police brutality, we must use this piece of Americana Media to better make sense ofwhat is normalized as well as how we unpack this "instinct". There is room to use this clip for critical discussions of authority, police brutality, and concious building to relevance of the time period this media is made to now.
