So, your saying just because some doctors have decided to become murderers of innocent babies, cops can go around murdering innocent grown ups?
No, the article said Law Enforcement (as in all LE) now has a license to murder. You support that assertion and as such you must support that all Dr's who provide abortion are also guilty of murder. Yet, some doctors who conduct an abortion do so with the intent of saving a mothers life.
Yes, actually, abortions are murder.
One day, they will all have to answer for their crimes.
We will all have to answer for our crimes...
As an ex-firefighter, I fully understand the stress police have to put up with.
Fully understand? And yet, you have never sworn the oath...? Please don't think so highly of yourself.
For years, my only friends were either firefighters or police.
None of the guys I knew would ever do what happened in that video.
While I could have explained the point better,
Good for you, humility after the fact is still humility.
your immediate approval of a mob of jerks with guns beating an obviously mentally challenged person to death just qualifies the posting statement.
I never said, nor inferred, I approved of the behavior as represented in the article. I object to overstating the issue with the conclusion that all Law Enforcement now has a license to murder.
OF COURSE not all cops are like those abusive bastards, but for as long as other cops refuse to stand up for the truth, we are rapidly becoming a nation divided, and oppressed, by those we trusted.
OF COURSE, now you change your tune. How is it you know that other cops refuse to stand up for the truth? You got some kind of special cop insight?
It was obvious the guy was scared to death, and it's too bad the original two cops were irate after spending so much time trying to reason with a smart azz, but that was no reason to kill him.
Really? Where were you when the prosecutor needed somebody to explain exactly what happen so succinctly and clearly? You got a beef with somebody try looking at how the case was presented and the quality of the jurors and their ability to understand the law.
How many more innocent people will be victimized by those guys before they are finally let go?
How long will it take to revoke and or sanction their bond?
Once again you show your ignorance of California law and how Law Enforcement is regulated.
Just like the politicians that are busy creating an American Monarchy of the entitled, the police are spreading mistrust and fear.
There will always be a few bad apples, but for as long as they are protected, and allowed to continue to oppress and murder, they will continue to destroy all police reputations.
Guess we are just evolving in different directions.
Unfortunately, there will eventually be a collision.
Already, the police are more militarized than some 3rd world armies.
The only thing that keep the public calm is trust.
I take it you're not very calm then. You can post errors in understanding all day long and call it your opinion, you have that right. I, too, have the right to express a counter balance based on first hand experience.
As for TRUST, that come from within, not from expecting others to do as you wish them to do. People have a responsibility to manage their own affairs with a moral and ethical balance. Many do not, that is why Law Enforcement exists in the first place.
Actions like the one in the video are rapidly destroying that.
What will you do then?
I'm doing it right now addressing your ignorant assertions.
When everyday ordinary hard working people don't trust the cops to be fair either?
Oh, I know, then it will be the same old excuese, no one knows what a cop has to go through.
That's why I suggest people sign up for ride alongs or volunteer time as a reserve officer. But, many find it easier to just prattle on and on and on about how much they know about being a Law Enforcement Officer when they haven't done jack squat...
Yeah, I guess it's tough holding back when you have a license to oppress the world, so many people to pound, so little time....
Yep, you're on to us, quick go down to your local City Council, County Board of Supervisors or Aldermen and provide your assessment and solution. Your fellow citizens holding elected positions will be relieved that finally someone has the courage to state what they are so afraid of. Who knows, they might even make you Chief of the Trust Police... but then, you'd be a cop...sorta.
