His words are going to be interpreted as "the kids were right and the cop was wrong" and that's likely going to lead to kids trying to see how far they can push things and still be "right". Meanwhile, he's also likely going to have every one of his cops wondering if their next contact is going to end up with them being the center of a press conference. I guarantee that every cop in the McKinney PD is looking at their uniform right now and envisioning tire treads across the chest.
    Police Chief was right. They don't need a clown like him on the force, good riddance to him.

    In my city the police are reasonable well-paid with good benefits & pensions - consequently, there's a huge waiting list to get in. I would welcome the early resignation of those officers that don't feel the obligation to perform their duties to the highest standards.

    I suspect their hard-working fellow officers feel the same!
    Same in my town. However, folks still get tased, still get charged with resisting, and the one teen put on the ground and cuffed would get put on the ground and cuffed here.

    Exactly!

    I wouldn't doubt this possibility, and mentioned this up-thread.

    That might explain why 11 officers were calm & nonreactive, while Rambo was running-around hyper, in circles, screaming.

    For all we know, his fellow officers may be thinking: "Good riddance"!

    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.
    And who could disagree with this??

    Yes, there are some that do hate cops. Some right here on this forum. Your protests are rendered meaningless by these folks, that's what drowns out your voice crying in the wilderness.
