    Well I have never seen how LA cops handle things, just jokes and such. I have however seen how BPD handles things and that is why I used them. And even then most of the time it is just the cops not being able to calm down people at parades and stuff.

    Still these cops are going to get screwed over.

    My God that AP writer couldn't have been more dishonest in his title:

    Houston police tried to stop a car that was missing a license plate, CBS News reported. When the car didn't stop, they pursued it into a garage. Police handcuffed and arrested the driver, injuring him, the report said. CBS News identified the official as Ben Ren Yu. The Houston consulate website lists a deputy consul-general, Yu Boren.


    And we still have people running around screaming the cops are guilty when this guy didn't have a license plate and ran from the cops.

    We have no idea if he added resisting arrest to that list of broken laws.

    Did you guys even bother to read what this guy did?

    There are different levels of crime, and when the police arrest the most violent criminals they are scared of them. But when dealing with petty criminals like the majority of time they are dealing with. They are often abusive and hostile. So it doesn't matter because the police are often bullies who don't want to mess with someone capable of defending themselves. And being on your best behavior won't save you.

    Houston cops have their moments, that's for sure. But compared to New Orleans, L.A. or N.Y.C., they are cream puffs.

    Hell, New Orleans are PROUD of their ass whuppin' cops and I don't expect there to be any change there in our lifetimes.

The "Mexican" drowned, and it turned out that he was a US citizen, after all.

    So, the City of Houston gets yet another black eye, courtesy of the Police Department. You would think that, with such a brutal police department, the crime rate here would be way down, but instead, it is way up. Go figure.

    Article is here
    .
    From the Article:

    Officials in China's Foreign Ministry released a statement Friday saying police harassed and beat a deputy consul-general while he was driving to the consulate. The statement said a family member also was involved, but did not say if that person was injured.

    Houston police tried to stop a car that was missing a license plate, CBS News reported. When the car didn't stop, they pursued it into a garage. Police handcuffed and arrested the driver, injuring him, the report said. CBS News identified the official as Ben Ren Yu. The Houston consulate website lists a deputy consul-general, Yu Boren.
    So - why didn't this official stop driving when flagged by police and simply state who he was?
    Instead, the driver drove on - and into a parking garage. . . there was nothing to give sign of who this person was. . . not sure about in other countries but in the US that's not taken as a sign of being granted immunity.

    How was Boran injured? We don't quite know - the Chinese government has alleged a beating but this has yet to be confirmed.

    What would have happened to someone in China if they were flagged but didn't pull over?
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    You are asking people who obviously live on emotion to actually examine the facts.

    Its a tall order

    Of course, I did. First of all, they arrested the diplomat in Chinese soil, where they had no business being. They have absolutely no authority there. Secondly, hardly a week goes by where there is not a story about Houston Police being investigated for beating someone who was not attempting to resist arrest. There was yet another case of it just a couple of days ago, and it was caught on a security camera. The cops are typcially put on administrative leave, while they attempt to cover up the incident. It won't happen on the one a couple of days ago, though, because the mother is raising holy hell, and Quanell X is getting her a lawyer, and holding press conferences. Her son is going to be a rich man. Beatings are par for the course here.

    Government is guilty until proven innocent, the individual is innocent until proven guilty. You can't take abuse of power and sovereignty lightly, which is why that's how it was meant to be. The government was never a force to be trusted or believed.

    Doesn't matter, presumption of innocence is on the individual, not the militaristic branches of the government. The cops should be suspended with pay till an investigation is finished at which point prosecution/further punishment can be issued if necessary.
