See, this is the problem I have with a story like this. You get a video snippet, and a one, or two sentence story, then the faux outrage starts....If something in this operation had gone wrong and say a stray bullet would have come out and killed the woman, then you'd be hollering that the police had an obligation to make sure she wasn't in the immediate vicinity of the operation for safety....so they can't win with you..All you want to do is smear, and bitch about cops...So, I'm not all convinced that your outrage is genuine.
Clearly that is not true.I don't care what you think
Prove it...we have a problem in America with police corruption, brutality, and abuse,
Who is "we"????and we are going to get this resolved.
Why should I give crap what foreigners think about our controversies here, they'd do better to worry about their own problemsHave you noticed the response to all this from foreign posters here.
No, I've posted many times what I do for a living, you know that, or should, so your attempt to disqualify my opinions on the basis of only a cop can address you is a fallacy. But then no one is surprised at that....BTW, are you a cop?Btw, are you a cop?
That's NOT what I said, and you damned well know it....That sir is a strawman argument, and you'd do better not to try to put words in peoples mouths.
Then let her go down and file charges...I am certain that the department would take that very seriously.As to what punishment he should get, in my opinion he should get the same punishment that your average citizen would get. Also if I was the chief and this particular cop had shown the slightest type of behavior before he would be fired. If he can not be trusted to act according to the law than he sure as hell shouldn't be a cop.
I don't think cops are ANY worse then they were 50 years ago...in fact, I think they are much better.
The stuff that police could get away with before the numbers of cameras in America exploded was far and away worse then what they can get away with now.
It's just that back then you (I assume) almost never saw these things unless you were there witnessing them whereas today almost everyone has a camera on them (which is good).
Cops are not worse IMO, just far more scrutinized.
I was engaged to a cop's daughter and I saw how incredibly difficult a job it can be. Sure there are bad cops and they should be punished, but never forget there are far more good ones and what a difficult job it can be.
