    Police officer resigns, another is fired after Ferguson incidents[W:76]

    (Reuters) - A police officer has resigned after pointing a rifle at protesters during racially charged demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, and another has been fired for inappropriate social media posts stemming from the two weeks of civil unrest, officials said on Friday.
    Officer Go **** Yourself has been forced to resign, and another officer who posted on social media sites that the Ferguson protesters should all be put down like rabid dogs has been fired.

    Both decisions were good decisions. Police officers do not own the community. They work FOR the community, and the community is the boss, not them. I know that tensions have been running high in Ferguson, but if you threaten to kill people, then you do not deserve to wear a badge under ANY circumstances. End of discussion....... Or is it?

    Yep, any displays of humanity while wearing a badge makes you a worthless waste of oxygen. Maybe if we're lucky, they'll do the honorable thing, right? When was the last time someone expressed sadness over a cop losing his/her life or acknowledging a job well done? Actually, getting away from law enforcement is probably the best thing to happen to them. I swear they should all just walk off the job since almost nobody gives a **** about what happens to them anyway.

    I don't believe the officer who said inappropriate language and threats in the heat of the moment was given proportionate discipline. He should've been Suspended without pay, and maybe lose a pay grade, but not fired after 20 yrs of service, unless this was a 2nd offense?

    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?

    If you've seen some outpouring of respect or concern for or even just an attempt at understanding the people behind the badge, you've been hanging out where I haven't. Maybe it's the uniform that leads people to believe cops are no longer to be regarded as human and should be discarded with no more concern than one would have over a defective dishwasher.

    Saying that protestors should be put down like dogs is not an expression of humanity. Monsters say that sort of thing.

    Only every single time an officer is killed in the line of duty.

    How annoying that must be to people who know better than to care for a piece of machinery. At least try not to begrudge the mourners too much. They're probably family and didn't know they shouldn't give a **** any more.

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

    OK I was gone from the board for 2 weeks and thus I haven't seen all the posts regarding Ferguson. However, as far as I can tell, in all the posts on DP about all the things that happened in Ferguson no one has posted even a word about the officers who went home after their duty shift and baked batches of cookies and handed them out to protesters the next day.

    They were treating the people they are supposed to serve and protect as worthless wastes of oxygen. That's unacceptable in people who have vested in them the power to destroy lives.

    Is there some other thread in which this post makes sense?
