Those pukes will probably be out in a few years. Never to work in law enforcement again.
    At least we know you support the Death Penalty now...........

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Little perspective. There are over 35k officers in the NYPD. With a number like that, there are bound to be some bad apples or those with questionable ethics. They're a sample of society.

    Now, if this is determined to be systematic practice sanctioned by the organization as a whole, its pretty damn serious issue and there should be an organizational shakedown, top to bottom. If not, hold those accountable for breaking the law.

    Just like with everything, there's good and there's bad. So we shouldn't indict all police officers nationwide for what a squad in one city does.

    But while I think we have more legit cops that we have corrupt ones, we still need to push for reforms for our systems of law.
    Agree on every point, which is why I phrased it as... "...facilitated by what I will call the "bad apples" of police,...". Most officers are fine and decent people, as are most citizens. But, just as an officer does not know if he is dealing with a good one or a bad one, neither do I.

    Some of the guys Ive worked with have run into situations where a supervisor demand they arrest someone and charge them with something that the officer disagrees upon meeting the elements of that particular crime.

    In their case, they just arrested them for the lower crime they committed and charged them with that and didn't tell the supervisor.

    In my case, I'll charge them with the higher crime, but list myself as the transporting officer and list the supervisor as the charging officer and put him down for court.
    Yeah, I've always heard shady things about narcotics - apparently it's not the most honest part of the department. And your handling of the situation sounds better than the other people's. If the supervisor wants the charge, they should be responsible for it.

    I was referring more to the narcotics police squads, the DEA, judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, prison guards, and wardens.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Wrong.

    "The War on Drugs" and its associated factors are purely political and/or business/industrial.

    Who makes drug laws again?

    (And Why do I always have to remind people of this when drug laws are brought up?)

    Who have the ability to appeal drug laws again?

    The California prison guard union is, by far, the most powerful union in the state. They actively oppose EVERY proposal that might lower the prison population or somehow undermine their power and status and influence.

    They go hand-in-hand. Law enforcement is politically popular AND they also have their own lobbyists in Washington and state capitols.
