I've felt a groundswell of change taking place in the country recently, especially over the past few months - there's very little public tolerance left for police malfeasance, and camera phones are the ubiquitous tool bringing these types of actions to light.
Policing is an extremely difficult job (though in my city it pays well with great benefits), but there's no place for those that abuse their badge & oath. It's a privilege to be allowed the use of deadly force, and it's not a privilege to be earned or taken lightly.

I hope that the idiot cop is working the greeter spot at the local Walmart. Another freaking idiot cop. That job attracts so many twits.
