    Re: Police officer resigns, another is fired after Ferguson incidents

    Why would anyone concentrate on these two bad cops as though they represent the whole. I watched the situation in Ferguson. I saw dozens and dozens of cops who didn't abuse anyone, who didn't point their weapons at anyone. Why the intense effort to defend these two indefensible cops?

    What planet do you live on?
    Oh nonsense, your hatred of police has been kneejerk and often. And monsters? You don't know what monsters are if you think just expressing frustration verbally makes one a monster.

    On the planet I live what was done to these officers is disgusting.

    You don't get it, they are protecting and serving the community FROM the worthless wastes of oxygen and their actions. You want it the other way around apparently. The protesters, the rioters, they ARE worthless wastes who destroy lives and property.

    Since the comment is a quote of two politicians, perhaps it's time you did some research of your own. Perhaps starting with informing yourself of just how the American policing system has been buying up surplus Iraq war materiel for use against civilians.

    Then you can maybe debate without distorting and exaggerating what every poster whom you disagree with happens to offer.

    Only the town and the meek win. Protectors inherently sacrifice and lose even when the town and the meek win. Thats just the way it is. They accept a harsher life so that the innocent may enjoy greater happiness.

    It doesn't work like that. If a poster is going to claim that the police are too militarized, it's up to that poster to provide examples and solutions when asked for them.

    Ironically, they were protesting police action from police officers they consider worthless wastes of oxygen.

    Maybe the government should set a standard and stick to it themselves before they demand everyone treat officers within a certain standard.

    We can start by only giving them the same weapons everyone else has access to. You know, the way it was intended.

    That might be difficult to achieve since most people after finishing college have no desire to become police officers.

    I know of at least two towns or cities where the minimum requirements to apply for the position of police officers are no felony convictions and an almost clean police record (having nothing other than parking tickets), being 21 years of age, and only having a high school education, they will train people. That's setting the bar pretty low for having to deal with a population that's pretty diverse and dealing with the public on a general basis, some of which are more qualified to be a peace officer than the police officer him/her self.

    Some cities and counties have a pattern of abuses, one of which is Ferguson and the police department itself, the other is St Louis county.
