    Yup but not at the expense of themselves...see the double standard ...you want to hold the police to standards none of the private sector are held too...you want them to be there when you need them...risk their lives to protect the public...and on the other hand they arent allowed to protect themselves like regular citizens...and its ok to cut their pay and benefits to give out tax cuts...nah doesnt work for me sorry

    I know quite a few cops who are tea party sympathizers, and more than a few military members who are as well.

    methinks once again you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to the Tea Party membership. you do realize that you can't just read public union diatribes and pass that off as evidence? The Tea Party is an interest group pushing for less government. Public Sector Unions have a strongly vested interest in more government. The latter is not exactly going to be straightforward about the former.

    Hah! Beautiful. That's great.

    There is a point at which being unbiased is no longer the right thing to do. Sometimes the best thing to do when significant harm is being done is to stand up. This has happened in the military, the police force, and journalists - three professions which take their ethics and duties so seriously they're nearly neurotic about it, at least if they're any good.

    And yet some of their very finest moments are when they recognize it is time to stand up. To do their jobs to the best of their ability, sometimes they have to break rank.

    I don't begrudge them that. It's not something to be taken lightly. But when it needs to be done, it needs to be done. Sometimes things get so out of control that being impartial is more harmful than helpful.

    You're correct, good catch.

    What was the economic status and path of Wisconsin before Walker was elected? What is their current and future economic outlook? Thats should the be the governments job and responsibility. If the people of Wisconsin want to all jump into a grave and dig it 40 foot deep, good for them. I only hope and pray the fed doesnt step in to bail them out when/if they go bankrupt, and I hope their grandkids **** on their graves when they get stuck having to pay for their continued irresponsibility and stupidity.

    this is very incorrect. in fact, it is dangerous. A non-political security forces obeying civilian political leadership representing the populace at large is a critical element for the survival of freedom and democracy.

    And yet some of their very finest moments are when they recognize it is time to stand up.
    and how would you like it if the US Military decided that civilian leadership had obviously demonstrated its' incapacity to effectively govern the country, and it was time to 'stand up'? I'm thinking you might not appreciate our decision to transfer you to living under a junta.

    our civil force is and must remain a-political if you want Liberal (old meaning) Governance to survive.

    To do their jobs to the best of their ability, sometimes they have to break rank.

    if they feel so important about it, then they should be willing to be arrested, fired, and tried for it.

    Outside of that I have no problem with what they say or do.
    You assumed that they were on duty just because they were wearing their uniforms? You are going to have to prove they were doing this on duty and not on their own time.

    EDIT: I just saw another comment in this thread. Please don't tell me I just got punk'd by Youtube. LOL.

    So, will you at least admit they were on duty after all.

    It's bound to happen when you take such a one sided, close minded stance on a subject.
