As a senior Police Officer stated, the Officer had all the information needed to make an arrest later. Address, ID the whole picture. No need to pursue, none.
He then stated that many of today's newer Officer take it farther than needed such as in cases of pursuit.
If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.
Let's just take the month of May for example......
In Baltimore, which was wracked by violence just one month ago after Freddie Gray, an African-American man, died while in police custody, 32 people were shot. Nine of them died. That brings to 35+ the shootings in Baltimore just in May and the month isn't over until midnight.
In New York City, eight people were shot and killed.
In Chicago, where murder has become common, 12+ people died and 44+ were wounded.
Care to take a guess what these three cities have in common? They are all presided over by elected Democratic mayors and majority Democratic city councils. They all have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.
President Obama says he was elected to "end wars, not start them." While he is retreating overseas, he might consider trying to end the war in America's inner cities. And those inner-city voters might benefit from ending their loyalty to a party that has done them little good.
And while we are at it, let's continue the charade to point to the racist, trigger happy cops that are "oppressing" the people. After all, that takes the heat off of the Progressives and their friggen failed policies.
