    Yes because it's showing the light on how abusive and inadequate government tends to be
    While I agree with you that government tends to be abusive and inadequate, I don't think blaming the cops first in every situation is helpful.

    More leftist lies. There's just no end to it. Can't you people ever get your point across without lying?

    Police abuse is a consequence of an unregulated industry.

    I don't blame cops, I blame he individuals however, an unregulated industry, police force, will create more instances of this occurrence to happen

Instead, most of these victims are poor black kids who are harassed constantly by police and aren't often arrested. They're being subject to extrajudicial punishment from police and have no recourse in the courts to fight it, especially since they can't afford lawyers. Does anyone really think that an overworked public defender is going to explore constitutional issues of police conduct for them? Of course not. There's going to be a quick plea deal. NONE of the recourses and suggestions offered by comfortable middle class white people will help poor blacks escape constant harassment and abuse from police. And no one should have to simply obey in such a situation.
    Why would a public defender's office be involved in charging police with violating a person's civil rights?

    It's far from unregulated.

    It's regulated by a single entity, the same people that hire them. A government, is ineffective, at regulating everything in comparison to private enterprise is what I am saying

    92, not 92 percent. Good lord.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    It may be the grounds for justifiable homicide depending upon the circumstances, they can't just let you decide your arrest is invalid and run away

    It is very rare for someone to truly be a victim of police, and cops have legal authority to protect themselves and effect warrant less arrest. Don't interfere with this powers and you probably won't get shot.

    I must've missed the right to kill police officers last time I took a class on the constitution, I was probably asleep the day they told me I had a right to assault cops to avoid arrest. Thanks for reminding me
