    Do you have a link to any information about the suit?
    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.

    Yes, but you can't stop it with lethal force like in Texas unles your life is imediatly in jeopardy. That's what we need a bill to fix. It should be perfectly legal to shoot anyone imediatly engaged in grand theft, burglary, arson, etc, even if you yourself are perfectly safe.

    The footage from Ferguson tells a different story.

    In 2012 there was something like 80,000 no knock warrants issued. Those are routinely served by teams of heavily armed cops and routinely served against non violent offenders.
    That has nothing to do with "militarization".

    My point, is that you are suggesting that their civil rights should be violated from the git-go.

    I have no idea, that's why I'm asking for clarification. I personally don't see an abundance of, "military", equipment. No machine guns, rocket launchers, artillery, tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, nothing. The only, "military", equipment I see is purely defensive in nature.

    I swear they should all just walk off the job since almost nobody gives a **** about what happens to them anyway.


    Anyone who can't do any job the way that it should be done for whatever reason needs to move on.

    Whether the job is picking up garbage or policing the community.

    I saw that referenced in the articles but saw no detail. What were the disciplinary actions for?

    How do you suggest we go about ridding police of their human emotions. While you're working on that, keep in mind that when you get rid of the bad emotions, you also get rid of the good emotions.

    Anyone who lets their emotions dictate their actions and who can't obey the law doesn't belong on any police force.

    Pretty frickin' simple and obvious.

    To an extent, you're right. However, you're advocating that cops should be emotionless machines and that just ain't gonna happen. Actions, "in the heat of the moment", will occur and there's no way around it. You want too much sugar for a dime.
