I personally know a couple of guys that recently became cops that when I found out it made me exclaim WTF? These guys were both losers in life that couldn't hold a job and now in their 30s they are cops. It makes me wonder if it has become harder to get people that want to go into this line of work. Regardless of that when push comes to shove I tend to believe the cops version until the evidence all comes in.
    I vote Good but Here's the qualifier... Their training is bad. In an effort to provide for police safety, their tactics have become more authoritarian.

    Re: cops

    Liberal.

    My personal experiences with the police has been 75% good, 25% bad, but I am not readily identifiable as a minority or a member of a subculture. When I had a old, banged-up car I used to get stopped many times in one particularly affluent community, but I was let go once they decided I was "acceptable."

    Because we have many bad laws regarding victimless crimes, especially drug laws, many good people would never work in law enforcement. Historically, law enforcement has also been social class and race privilege enforcement Those that do work in LE may be politically unaware or feel that they can work around the bad laws. Others embrace the culture and class/race wars and they are the ones who cause problems in many communities. As long as that continues there will always be police-community clashes. I generally I feel about the police the way I feel about flies, they are necessary for the ecosystem, but often annoying on a personal level.

    Nice to have friends in the right places.

    The higher standard we expect from police should mean receiving the max sentence and the max fine. Isn't great he isn't a felon so he gets to keep his guns too? An admitted rapist can own guns. AMERICA **** YEAH.

    Re: cops



    Still not serving time.

    McCloskey was instantly paralyzed from the waist down although he retained feeling in his lower extremities. His motorcycle fell on him exhaust side down and as his hot exhaust pipes burned through his leg McCloskey begged White and Sargent to pull the bike off him. After Snyder ran to help McCloskey he asked White and Sargent to help him get the 600 pound motorcycle off the 200 pound man. White replied, “He’s your friend. You get the bike off of him.” McCloskey’s burns caused nerve damage and he remains in constant pain.
    What you can't tell from the video is that the sirens are still active on the cruiser. McClosky couldn't hear anything. Also note that from the time the lights come on until they stop, it takes about 10 seconds.

    This is the kind of garbage that the book should thrown at. And not have the 'brotherhood' rally around this ****nut.

    Re: cops



    Honest cops ...

    Another 'he was reaching for my gun' POS.

    Thanks goodness for CCTV and dashcams and POV cameras (as long as they don't have mysterious malfunctions at convenient for police moments)

    Officer's lie discovered days after and yet the unarmed black man still served 4 months in jail.

    Story BEFORE the video was oncovered"

    BRENTWOOD, MD (CBSDC) – The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Special Investigative Response Team (SIRT) is investigating a police-involved shooting that occurred in Brentwood, Maryland, last night.

    On February 3rd, around 9:40 PM, detectives from the District I Robbery Suppression Team (RST) were working an assignment near Rhode Island Avenue and 38th Street. At one point detectives saw two individuals, one wearing a mask, enter the Lowest Price Gas convenience store located in the 3800 block of Rhode Island Avenue. Believing that the two suspects were about to commit a robbery, RST detectives confronted the suspects.

    One of the suspects, later identified as Ryan Dorm of Cottage City, swung at an officer and began to flee. The 13-year police veteran caught up to the Dorm after a brief foot chase. According to police, Dorm began to reach for the officer’s firearm. Fearing that the suspect was attempting to take control of his gun, the officer fired his weapon at the suspect and made the arrest. No injuries were reported as a result of the shooting.

    Dorm has been charged with attempted second degree assault and attempt to disarm a law enforcement officer. He remains in custody at the Department of Corrections in Upper Marlboro.

    The involved officer, has been placed on administrative leave in accordance with departmental policy.

    Story AFTER the video
    A Prince George's County Police officer has been suspended after surveillance video contradicted his version of events, stemming from a police-involved shooting in Brentwood on Feb 3, sources tell ABC7 News.

    Paula Dorm's 19-year-old son Ryan has been locked up since last Friday when he was very nearly shot by Prince Georges County Police.

    Police claimed that Ryan assaulted an officer, ran and then reached for an officer's gun, causing the officer to fire. Ryan was charged with resisting arrest and assault.

    But now police admit a surveillance video shows that the officers involved lied about large portions of that story.

    It all began when two Prince George's County detectives were in the area of Rhode Island Avenue and 38th Street on the lookout for robbers. They spotted Ryan and a friend--one allegedly wearing a mask--go into the Lowest Price Gas convenience store in the 3800 block of Rhode Island Avenue. Fearing that a crime was about to occur, the officers approached and were buzzed into the locked store by the attendant.

    A police report said that Ryan Dorm swung at an officer and began to flee. The officer caught the man after a brief foot pursuit. The man then tried to reach for the officer's gun. Fearing that the man was trying to take his gun, the officer fired his gun at the man.

    Through his lawyer, Ryan tells ABC7 that he walked out and across the street because he didn't want any trouble.

    According to sources, the newly found security video supports Ryan's claim that Cpl. Donald Taylor tackled him from behind, punched him in the back and then hit him in the head with his gun, which accidentally fired.

    On Monday, the Police Inspector General announced the two officers involved have been suspended and Ryan's charges will be changed.

    As of Tuesday afternoon, Ryan's lawyer said his client remains locked up and the charges haven't changed.

    "My client didn't commit any crimes," said Ryan's lawyer. "He was assaulted. Right now he's being illegally detained and every day, every hour my client is incarcerated illegally, they're gonna pay for that."

    No one was injured in the incident.

    Taylor is a 13-year veteran of the force.
