    As far as I'm concerned, cops get zero latitude these days.

    I live here, and there are examples of law abiding Texas citizens using their pistol to defend themselves from atattackers.

    What happens when a State allows its citizens to protect themselves and their Family and belongings is word gets around throughout the thug community.

    Crimes like Robbery, Car jacking drop off and its a safer place to live.

    Its one of the reasons you don't see knock down drag out riots in Texas like you do in Northern States. The idiots know that there's a good chance the person they're fixing to assault is armed.
    The only cans and cones swung around were on cars. If she is too scared to hit the gas pedal, I cant help.
    But is it YOU that would fire or her? IF you are not there, just what are you going to do?

    That's the Liberal MSM that wants to embellish a point.....every day there are cops out actually helping people. Many times it has nothing to do with a crime.

    The cop that runs into a burning fire to get people out, The cop that arrives on the scene with seniors who have become lost and disoriented, the cops that saves one from a drug overdose, the cops that help kids out and save their lives and are known throughout communities all across the nation.

    Cops out helping people.....when I was younger I never really paid attention to that aspect of their daily lives. As I have gotten older and I have noticed that while they have a job to do. That many go well beyond the call of duty and have a place in their neighborhoods. That in essence they are people too.

    Yet.....we rarely see the Media throw up the feel good stories unless it is to deflect from another issue.

    Lost faith ?

    I would say Police brutality is far less of a issue than it way say 20 years ago or even 40 years ago. I would guarantee its far less of a inssue than it was in the 50s and 60s.

    It reminds me of my Sister In Laws assertions that the world is worse off today than it ever was. I argue that her opinion is being swayed by current technology which allows instant access to disasters, killings, wars, terrorsist attacks, violence.

    Watching You tube videos that show one cop after another abusing his authority is a highly subjective way of qualifying the current level of Police brutality all over our Nation.

    Youve made up your mind before you start your You tube search without looking at those videos in the context needed to come to a fair and accurate conclusion.

    "A couple" is two.

    More than two of these videos are posted every hour. Of every day. For years now.

    Most of them are just raw footage.

    Nothing "edited" about them.

    And I didn't say anything about "damning" anyone.

    I said that they no longer have my trust.

    A couple years ago a cop could do just about anything and I'd give him or her the benefit of the doubt because, as you apparently still are, I was naive about what was actually going on in the law enforcement community.

    Being a white, upper middle class, college educated, moderately conservative, Veteran the police were my kind of people.

    Not any more.

    Now you have to be a far (and I mean lunatic fringe) right wing ideologue who is more interested in style than substance in order to support these people across the board.

    Now I take the position, like Ronald Reagan said, of "Trust, but verify".

    If there is any question that the police might possibly be in the wrong I generally assume that they were probably in the wrong.

    Because they're in the wrong so gosh darn much.

    It doesn't matter whether they're strong-arming a Nevada cattle rancher, shooting to death a Sunday school teacher in a church parking lot, or dealing with the worst drug dealing, gang affiliated elements of the Baltimore underbelly.

    The fact that that even needs to be mentioned as a defense against a wholesale legitimate condemnation of what law enforcement has become is pretty pathetic, don't you think?

    Falsehood: Cops risk their lives every day.

    Truth: Policing is a relatively safe profession, behind construction workers, dentists, and mental health workers.

    Falsehood: Police spend their time fighting crime.

    Truth: Police spend less than 20% of their time on busting people. They spend 30% at trial. 50% of their duties are in the nature of "Serve" everything from directing traffic to rescuing people, first responders to injury and accidents.

    Falsehood: Police have a quota of tickets and arrests.

    Truth: "No sir, I can write as many as I like, would you like another for reusing a reasonable request of a police officer". Most professional cops would rather clear an incident without the paperwork and court time if they can.

    Fact: Police [here anyway] spend more time learning how to deal with mental health issues than at the firing range.


    You will not see many "feel good stories". No one ever phoned my newsroom to ask how many planes landed safely that day, or how many police saved someone pain, suffering or embarasment.

    One note. I was recently in emerge for a day for this Menniere's disease. While there I notice several police waiting with patients, usually very feeble or mixed up. I learned they are there as an extension of first response, if police aare involved they stay with the patient until they are stable or family arrives to give comfort and continuity.

    The hypocrisy here is glaring.

    A few cops are bad and all cops are bad.

    A few blacks destroy things and they are individuals.

    Heya Mason. Yeah there are a few bad cops.....sometimes they run in crews. But for the most, they rarely have to pull their gun.....even for some cops that have respect from the Bangers.

    Not really.....you don't think Many Suburban cops and rural town cops are dealing with what those in City are, do ya? Small town America may have crime.....but its nothing like whats in a major city.

    Here to.....the bangers at times have joined forces to go after a few cops. Most times.....after all the wash. One did discover about who was a bad cop and who wasn't.
