    Such as in this case

    Cop accused of stealing $1,300 during search | New York Post

    Where a cop just stole a bunch of money from a dude. And weren't there a bunch of cops in, was it texas, stopping people coming from a Casino and taking money? Some of these high profile cases will garner attention and investigation; but for things like the story I linked, it only became investigated because other people had video tapped the Cop's actions. So how much is going on behind the scenes? How much are cops really stealing and assaulting and killing and otherwise abusing their power and position wherein no discipline is ever brought?

    A cop who commits crimes should be treated absolutely no differently than any other common individual suspected of committing a crime; but they aren't. We give all sorts of excuses and reasons as to why justice shouldn't be blind; but it really should. I suppose we can hope that the reporting of these various cases increases so that the public can be made aware and that perhaps we get some actual regulation and control in our armed, neigh military forces.

    Nope, was not there. But you think cops just waltz up to someone and choke them out for kicks?

    He was black, so none.

    I predict riots, because nothing says you care more about social injustice than breaking into a store to loot cheap wine.

    Breaking the law and resisting arrest rarely ends in hugs and kisses.

    Not take them into custody because the guy just doesn't feel like being hamd cuffed today ?

    Should Criminals be allowed to say " F-you Cop, you're not taking me in " because the Police are too scared of doing their jobs ?

    My best friend from High School is a police officer and told me that at least 50 percent of the people he cuffs suddenly develope acute respiratory failure.

    They " can't breath ". So what's he supposed to do ? Believe someone who'll say just about anything to NOT go to jail ?

    Of-course he should have been arrested, he broke the law.

    So is it time to burn down this New York City bitch, too?
    I've been trying to get NYC burned down for years now. Though not because of this.

    Maybe not kill them, I don't know; that seems kind of reasonable.

    Is there a point here besides further highlighting your kneejerk hatred of all things police? Of course charges against police require evidence, you have a problem with that now? And a cop convicted of a crime does indeed face far more severe penalties. Being a cop in jail.
