    The premise of what you are trying to argue is absurd on its face, that only those with direct personal experience should have any opinion. Obviously, in you logic, all juries are incompetent unless every juror 1.) has been a victim of the crime that is at issue and 2.) was also in law enforcement. Nor should anyone ever vote since no one has experience at every issue.

    Mostly, since you were not and are not a police officer your messages are pure hypocrisy.

    There are others on this forum who often have discussed being police officers including career officers - and NONE of them agree with your view that the only opinions that matter are those who are or have been police officers.

    No, I make sure that cops can't do this kind thing.

    This is what ruins apdst's argument. In order to meet apdst's standards of topic discussion, every single member of a grand jury would need to have been a police officer. The reality of course is that such a standard is unrealistic. As such, the overwhelming majority of people discussing these topics have never been police officers, that includes apdst.

    What if they were saving your ass in the process? I bet you wouldn't care who they capped, as long as you stayed safe. Yes?

    It makes perfect since, because I don't condemn every cop that is caught up in a questionable incident.

    You folks on the other hand? Y'all are like, "that mother ****er's guilty! ****'um!". Never, ever any benefit of the doubt. Even after they're cleared of any wrong doing, y'all still insist that they're murdering racists.

    Ummmmm.... According to the SCOTUS police are under NO obligation to protect us as citizens.

    Now drop the "were you a cop" nonsense. It is just that.

    The Garner and Brown incidents and the GJ hearings in each are irrelevant to the issues and GJ hearing in this case. Just as irrelevant, are the protests that have taken place regarding Garner and Brown. Different fact base, different GJs, different outcome, all equally respectable and acceptable to those who don't have an agenda and need scapegoats to push it.

    I'm not sure what kind of weird hypotheticals you're entertaining in your mind, but this is about when police don't act to protect anyone, but kill people who aren't committing a crime, aren't dangerous, and aren't threatening anyone. When that happens, there should be indictment and prosecution, because that's murder. I'm also not sure what kind of life you lead where you need police to kill someone to protect you. I certainly don't.

    rather than this "shoot first, ask questions later" mentality that has resulted in so many deaths.
    A major problem is today's mentality that even citizens can shot first and ask questions later thanks to vigilante type laws being put on the books.

    So, according to you, only cops are the only ones allowed to criticize the police. What a crock!
