    I've heard it explained that admitting police wrongdoing creates mistrust and second guessing. But sweeping every misdeed under the rug makes those who witness such occurrences CERTAIN that the department in question is corrupt.

    So in order to save face with the population overall, they cause a few to turn against them for good every time they "let it slide".

    Police/public relationships would improve dramatically if cops who **** up were held strictly accountable.

    Hell, statistics involving complaints of abuse dropping dramatically when cops are required to wear cameras, as well as the aggressive ways they deal with those filming them in action speaks volumes as to how cops were behaving when no one was around to see.
    None of which has anything to do with the disgusting actions of the looting and rioting people in this town.

    No. Just no.

    And they didnt even wait to find out if there would be an investigation or anything else.

    And I'm a liberal.

    Plenty of people care about that. We are waiting to see the results of an investigation. Yes, we presume one will take place and those resources have been sent.

    Unlike you who has already judged and convicted the cop.

    Of course it doesn't, nobody thinks that. Unfortunately every time we have a situation of police excess, people ruin a perfect opportunity to hold protestations demanding justice in a manner that would demand respect and an appropriate response, by doing stupid stuff such as we're seeing now, diminishing legitimacy.

    Then someone needs to clue the idiots in.

    You, and others say there's no justification, but steadily make excuses for it.
