    Re: Jury reaches verdict in former officer's beating trial

    The kid is lucky he doesn't live in my town, Las Vegas. The cops would have shot him to death and their union would have blocked any investigation.

    We think that these incidents are the actions of rogue officers but IMHO a majority of police officers are vile bullies who arre empowered to maim and kill with little chance of punishment. This is the "law and order" that we called for in the past.

    We've also had numerous incidents of officers beating BYSTANDERS because they dared to video their misbehavior.

    Do I think all cops are rotten? No, I'm sure that there are some dedicated, honorable ones. But even they are bound to the blue wall of silence when the bad ones go amuck.

    I don't know and don't much care because it just doesn't pass the bull**** smell test. I mean lets look at it logically. For this scenario to play out as described by you EVERYONE involved, narcotics, teachers, fellow classmates, countless street cops, supervisors, supervisores supervisors, basically the whole damn police department has to be involved and committed to lying and framing. And to what end?

    Yeah, that's completely excessive. Cops doing the same thing in Fullerton actually killed the guy. I don't know what the jury was thinking. Seriously.

The last major riot in Houston happened in the late 1970's, when police officers were acquitted by an all white jury in a case where the officers threw a handcuffed Hispanic man named Jose Torres into Buffalo Bayou and remarked "Let's see if this wetback can swim". Torres drowned.

    For those who believe that the officers acted properly, and cheer this decision, here is the raw video, courtesy of Channel 13 in Houston. Look at it and then tell me that the officers who were charged are innocent.



    Yea, I know, the suspect that these cops were beating was wanted for burglary. He deserved to be punished, but that is for a court to decide, and not the decision of rogue cops who want to take the law into their own hands. I just heard that the FBI is now investigating, and I wouldn't be surprised if Federal civil rights charges are leveled against these officers.

    Article is here.
    funny when OJ got off Jews didn't go on rampages and neither did blondes. Why is it generally blacks who go bonkers when "they" lose a trial?

    any white targeted for reprisal hopefully will be packing at least a 50 shot automatic weapon

    Re: Jury reaches verdict in former officer's beating trial

    sigh...I watched the video...and I would think im probably more qualified to judge the video than most on this forum...

    Those police officers were DEAD WRONG...Look im all for a good NYC asswhoopin for any one that is resisting arrest, has a weapon or is being threatening or hurt a cop....but YOU DO NOT beat a man who is on the ground an not posing any threat whatsoever...and the lionshare of guys I worked with and have worked for me would never do that....

    Jerry, they were wrong...what they did was totally out of line...no justification for kicking and beating that kid...he was lieing docile on his belly...what he did has nothing to do with it at that point....Im amazed that a cops for a city the size of houston would do that in the middle of the day under camera...dumbass'

    Hey, if you can just declare him guilty without a trial and say it's permissible to just beat the hell out of him even while he's lying on the ground defenseless, why bother having a justice system? Let's just get rid of it and give everyone tire irons.

    I'm with Middleground. It disturbs me that you're in the military. Why do you serve for a country whose principals you clearly don't believe in? It seems like you'd like America to be a lot more like Afghanistan than a developed country.
