    Funny how you seldom see videos like this of jackasses getting arrested and what they do in the process.


    It doesn't help your argument to make the false claim that I am making blanket accusations. Again, most cops are good.

    But we have to reform the military mindset, and we have to weeds out the bad cops.

    30 something violent deaths, police, I count 4-5 for store greeters.

    moral of the story, police work ain't as dangerous as we are led to believe.

    Bang on, 100% right. The media and the public's insatiable appetite for human failure has left many important fields, politics being a prime one, to the least capable among us.

    Police forces do that on a regular basis.

    You think ginning up an angry crowd, convinced all cops are animals, makes policing better? All that does is promote a military mindset.

    If she were in the way, or in potential of being harmed, they could arrest her or otherwise restrain her.

    Seriously, what plausible reason could the cop have for smashing her phone/camera then running away? Essentially, he acted as accuser, judge, and jury, over... well, I'm not over what. I cannot think of a single plausible (legal) reason for that particular action.

    Didn't you just bleat about how you were upset I falsely claimed you make blanket statements? And now you claim your post proves that police work isn't as dangerous as we are led to believe. Hilarious.

    well, what would you suggest to end this militarization of police, and the excessive use of force problem that we see almost DAILY, these days?


    And don't blame the military mindset on those opposing the military mindset, it came from the wars on terror/drugs, and the 1033 program. It came from the recruitment videos, and the "going into battle mindset". it didn't come from the people they are sworn to protect.

    SO wait, I can't look at statistics and state that police work isn't as dangerous as we are led to believe without it being a blanket statement?


    How what now?

    Police work isn't that dangerous. Just because cops are persistently in fear of the average citizen doesn't mean the average citizen is dangerous.
