According to the article, out of 800 positions created under DOJ's COPS program, 629 MUST go to veterans who have served at least 180 days of active duty since 9/11. Although this does not provide statistics for the existing law enforcement population, it does provide some insight. There are also numerous articles on the web that talk about transitioning veterans to local police forces.
I'm not sure if I would blame my ISP (Comcast) for that. If I'm paying for Netflix, I would expect that they release their packets to my network. This works the other way as well. If I'm paying Comcast for my Internet service, I would expect them to not filter any packets coming to my network. Once I pay for service, my vendor would be obligated to do everything it can do to make sure I can use the services I'm paying for. So, in this case, I would be calling Netflix and complaining.
Having said that, I wouldn't switch my ISP over something like this. I use my Internet connection for WAY too many different things to cancel it just over lack of Netflix. I would cancel my Netflix service instead.
Now, if I had a different, equivalent in speed, option as my ISP (which I don't), I MAY consider switching, but that would be giving in to Netflix's wishes and that's a bad thing in this case.
Going back to TFA, I think the ISPs are full of shit. This could be a prelude to them hiking their rates, even if Netflix doesn't turn to charge them. As it is, in the U.S., we are paying the highest premium for Internet service in the modern world. I don't understand all this corporate bullshit and crying with "we're losing money." Corporations (all the big ones) are raking in money hand over fist. Just look at the dividends they're paying their stock holders.

Hell, at least it made it 2/3 of the way through.
I have no idea why ANYBODY would even consent to logging in to his Facebook account on a computer or unlocking his phone while in custody, let alone post a coerced message like that. I'm sure lawyers will hash all this out in court, but my according to the article
Jamerson was charged with two counts of simple assault and one count of obstruction against the officer, all misdemeanors, Lyon said.
I am for civil liberties, but I'm not sure I disagree with the charges.
Having said that, his case is about being coerced. Who's to say he didn't offer to write a nice post himself and the officers laughed and said "sure!"?
Sadly, we are pushed for 3G.
It must be because the high speed winds are too much to handle for the 4G waveband.
