    It makes total sense in every cop hating thread here. I'm just letting you all know that I get it.

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

    Police officers have extraordinary powers that can be easily abused, and if an officer makes statements on the internet like the one did, then he should not be on the force. The one that said F You should have been disciplined and a review done to see if he could stay on the force with counseling to help him deal with the pressures that the riots put on him. Maybe that was done, and he chose to maintain his position. I don't know.

    However, many of the officers in that town seem to me to be good public servants that did their job and wanted to help not harm. Hell, even some the black citizens took up positions to defend stores from the looters and confronted them with the same language and disdain as the officer that said F You. Videos of them doing so are all over the internet, yet we harp on one guy that lost his temper, was obviously scared and used a politically incorrect term. Again, I don't know what happened with that guy. Maybe he maintained that attitude, and maybe even has had that attitude for years - if so he needed to go, but if not, this was too harsh to ruin a career over.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Did I say that? How about answering the substance of my comment. And serve and protect is the motto of at least one big city PD is it not?

    The other cop who posted the protesters should be put down like rabid dogs was also over punished. Again, unless he's been caught doing this kind of thing before?

    Actually, he had disciplinary action taken against him 3 times prior to this.

    Is there something I said you disagree with? Surely you wouldn't suggest that cops be permitted to get frustrated, angry, hurt, saddened, stressed, etc. The ones who do need to be scrapped with no more care or concern than a broken down car.

    I get it. They're there for your comfort and the ones who aren't committed to that just suck.

    Officer Go **** Yourself had been disciplined 3 times previously. And it's not that they just kicked him to the curb. They gave him the option of resigning so he wouldn't lose his pension.

    What the **** is wrong with you? A cop expresses a desire to murder people, and you're jumping all over people for not worshiping him as a hero. What's it like living in a universe that's black and white?

    Well that's ridiculous. Unless he and his family are stripped of all their worldly possessions and he's forced to accept the only means of escape from a dishonorable life so clearly useless and pointless there is no justice.
