    That is a lot of "bad apples" in one place....

    And the fact that some conservatives actually defend scum like this..... just proves that some conservatives want a police state.

    lulz at a conservative saying we need to throw more money at a problem involving corruption in government union employees. Just goes to show you how the dishonesty of conservatives.

    Damnit, if only we paid those EXECUTIVES at ENRON even more money, then they never would have been so corrupt...

    Oh wait I know...Crovax hates Obama...

    If only OBAMA had even more power, then he wouldn't be so corrupt!!! He has a hard job and is under heavy scrutiny! You're lucky he even presides this country on your behalf.

    I really don't understand the type of person that could watch that video and conclude the man deserved it.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I don't think they are going crazy. This has been going on for a while. The problem for them is they are getting caught on film more and more.

    Some go into law enforcement because they enjoy being thugs. I've even had one tell me so.

    Me neither, just imagine that was your son, husband or brother.

    Well, don't be too hard on Higgins. You acknowledged he's from the UK, so when he turns on the news in his Soho flat, weekly he sees cops shooting unarmed people, choking them to death on the sidewalk, or ganging up on a man laying on his face with his arms behind his back, like a wild pack of dogs, kicking and punching him. This is being seen on international news. International news may also be showing similar in North Korea, or Pakistan or Egypt. But then this is America.

    No kidding they are.

    More than a few are vets, but I have never heard a percentage - I would guess 20%.

    Problem is, in cases like this, all of them are sharing the one moron brain.

    I didn't raise disgusting thief thugs.

    And if one of my Boys did something like that and received a knee to the head or to the groin I would shake the cops hand who did it.

    Again, this is in no way similar to what happened in South Carolina.
