    ... the ACLU has defended police officers all over the US. They have also defend civilians when their rights are violated by cops.

    It never ceases to amaze me how little so many conservatives know about what the ACLU actually does.

    Yeah, that's right in a sense...First, I wasn't "scolding" anyone, more like laughing at their post, second, I'm not saying that the ACLU is ALL liberal, but let's face it, the predominant number of cases they take on are for liberal causes...

    I said I didn't condone the cop's actions...But, let me just say again...The woman was too close to the action the police were undertaking. Now, if the woman wants to file charges for assault, destruction of property, or anything else then she is free to do that, and a court can sort it out....But, just as it isn't for him to take the action he did, it isn't for you to decide whether or not he should be jailed or not...So, tell me, do you know if charges were filed?

    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.

    I don't care what you think
    Clearly that is not true.

    we have a problem in America with police corruption, brutality, and abuse,
    Prove it...

    and we are going to get this resolved.
    Who is "we"????

    Have you noticed the response to all this from foreign posters here.
    Why should I give crap what foreigners think about our controversies here, they'd do better to worry about their own problems

    Btw, are you a cop?
    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?

    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.
    Then let her go down and file charges...I am certain that the department would take that very seriously.

    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.

    California penal code (240) prescribes up to six months jail for simple assault and a 1k fine. I think there are several other potential charges. Use google if you want to start adding it up. Also this man should face whatever penalties are drawn up in LA sherrifs conduct rules.

    You think what he did is OK?
    Good grief, don't you people read? I have already said that I didn't think it was ok....As for charges, I have no problem with her filing charges. At which time if the department, or a court fails to hear the case, then you have a gripe....If the woman does nothing, then SHE let him get away with it.

    Issue, after issue is media driven to gin up the masses....How many police forces are in the US today? How many cops are on the job? Millions? You have what is it now, 5 reports on the news and all of the sudden we are in crisis? Nah, this is just how the Alinsky left thinks they are effective at forcing change...Create a crisis, then as Emmanuel said, "Never let a crisis go to waste".... What I want to know is what do the anti police people want? Anarchy?
