    Re: U of Maryland student beaten by police

    Two of the officers involved have already been suspended and two more suspensions are likely.

    Given the video evidence ... and the fact that the FBI is investigating .... those involved are quite likely to be terminated and then prosecuted.

    I believe the Cheif of the U of Maryland Police Department needs to be fired and I believe he needs to lose his pension. Why? Because he had the sheer unmitigated gaul to put his badged thugs on PAID suspension. This is an
    unforgivable attempt to avoid punishing those who are OBVIOUSLY guilty and should forever end his law enforcement career.

    The FBI is NOT going to just let this go. The officers in question, who lied during and investigation, are guilty of corrption of justice, assualt with the intent to cause serious bodily harm, unlawful arrest, and false imprisonment at the very least.

    The other officers involved who lied to cover for their cop buddies are guilty of corruption of justice and conspiracy. All of them need to be serving life without parole in general population.

    In Canada there have been numerous scandals against the RCMP (our equivalent of the FBI) in the past two years, a couple of cases which led to public inquiry, and the whole thing has been a joke. The RCMP is blatantly protected by the government no matter how obvious it is to the intelligent members of the public who can see that abuse happened.

    Cops get off easy.
    That kind of bull**** doesn't fly here. When cops break the law and get caught ... they pay for it. In 1991, a man named Rodney King was viciously assaulted by the LAPD. In the original hearing the police were cleared. Then ... a HUGE multi-state riot broke out. Shortly their after ... the police were re-tried and found responsible for their actions. All of the officers involved were terminated. At least three of them were tried and convicted in a criminal court; Stacey Koon being the most nutorious of the three.

    According to videos I've seen, the case is rather cut and dried. I'd scratch my head to see the cops involved getting off in any manner.

    It's not like Meyer at U of F. That guy was attempting to incite a riot, not to mention resisting afterward and shooting off his big fat mouth. While he deserved a few thousand volts in him, this Maryland kid sure didn't deserve the beating - at leats from what I've seen and know.

    Why?

    They have been trusted by the public and they betrayed that trust. For this, they will be fired from their profession, prosecuted, and ruined. That's far more than any civilian would get for lying under oath in courts these days and far more than the general American in a public fight.

    Life in prison? Murderers get less than that. Hell, even Islamic terrorists are given sympathy. Free Gitmo, but "**** the police."

    While our police officers need to be aware of their tempers and the situation, I'm inclined to agree. It's what he'd get in a third world country if he tried to incite the crowd against our troops. Of course after the beating, he'd be hauled off and dropped off on the other side of the country too.

    Inciting a riot may result in the deaths of people and cause great destruction to private and government property. It's not something to be dismisssed with a kind word.

    Fair enough. Maybe not life but certainly at least five years without parole and they should be forced to pay compensation out of their own pockets.

    It's not exactly hating. It's a situation that got out of hand, but inciters of bad crowd behavior have caused lots of damage from riot to riot. If they ignite the beatings of people via a riot than perhaps they should rate one too.
