    no, he deserves no acceptance of failed ideas and plans.
    But police departments deserve acceptance of their failed ideas, plans and policies? We simply have to trust this particular potrtion of the government blindly... Why exactly? And we simply have to condemn the executive branch blindly... Why exactly? Sounds more like a position emerging from partisan hackery than from a coherent political thought. I'm less critical of your paranoid, hysterical fear of Obama than of your notion that we simply have to trust the police. If we are to have vigilance of the populous in its monitoring of government, surely that ought to include critical attention to the agents of government who patrol the streets of our neighborhoods with guns, no?

    If anyone had said that, you would have a point.

    Cops are like any other humans, there's good, bad and ugly. Been one, and in my experience about 25% have no business wearing the badge.

    The difference is the authority and power they are invested with by society and the law. Anyone who has that kind of power, from cops to politicians, should be watched closely and trusted little.

    Having said that...its intresting how quick some are to throw the race card down before half the facts are known, especially if the cops are white and its a Southern state. The modern South isn't any more racist than any other part of the country, thank you very much.

    I love people who've been here for like 3 weeks and think they have the entire forum figured out . I hate the part of country with the most black people. I hate the part of the country with the most uneducated black people. I hate the part of the country with the most dumbass no-job having black people. I hate the part of country with black people content of having some of the ****tiest living standards in the country next to maybe Podunk Alaska and that place where Little House in the Prairie was filmed. I hate black people. Here. I'll say it. **** Louisiana. It's that place that America only looks at on Mardi Gras and the latest Girls Gone Wild DVD.

    I thought, in US towns and cities, there were already groups in place to police the police; sometimes referred to as mayors, city managers, city councils. I know from experience they don't do a very good job of it, at least in southern MO, but I fail to see how setting up another organization will do any better.

    .
    There should be a partial group set up and the groups you speak about do not do crap in reguards to the cops. They are all in each others pockets

    You mean it's like LA or San Francisco?
