    The bad cops I have seen are the ones who ask questions like, what are you doing in this neighborhood, and bad cops would search the car w/o warrants or probable cause because of being in what they define is the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time of day. Probable cause back then (35 years ago) was having a tail light out, or driving a beater car.

    The worst cop that I can think of these days is Joe Arpaio, the racial profiler himself.
    That's your decision to judge an entire body of people based on the actions of few. How do you know how the cops are in Marrietta Georgia? How are the cops in Foxboro Massachusetts?

    Judging an entire body of people based on the actions of the few.... there's a word for that.....Al Sharpton uses it all the time......what's that word again?

    Perhaps you should read AJiveman's post more carefully. He clearly stated that he judged each officer upon his personal experience with that officer. He made no comments about police in general and pointed out Joe Arpaio specifically as an example of a "profiler". Rather than defending Joe Arpaio you decided to use a straw man argument that he was referring to all police that he had never met or had knowledge of their personal conduct. He clearly stated that there were both good and bad police officers - not that he expected either in advance of any evidence to the contrary.

    No problemo, that's why in this forum, a person is allowed to edit or delete their posts, which I do all the time after reading the responses. Some forums or blogs don't let you edit or delete, and the words typed are set in stone.

    I disagree.

    Officer Ramos' family invited the Mayor to the formalities.

    The police had no business turning a solemn event into a political stunt.

    Douchebags, every one who turned.

    If he simply showed up because he always shows up to police funerals, and/or basically "influenced" his way up there by pushing the issue himself without being offered, then I can fully understand the cops action here and while I wouldn't think it's the most mature thing to do, it's a move I can't really blame them for.

    If he normally doesn't show up to every police funeral, but showed up for this one and made a push to speak, then I actively support and applaud the cops as in such a case it's not an instance of them immaturily making a funeral into a political statement, but rather them denouncing the mayors attempt to utilize the funeral as a political tool.



    Care to quote what foundation your accusational question is built upon? What exactly has the OP said that indicates he supports chanting for dead cops?



    Who in this thread prior to your post made that point? Who?
    I don't *know* this is the case, but I suspect the whole things got out of the family's control rather quickly. I'd bet many of the dignitaries invited themselves and/or each other and the family wasn't even consulted about it. Or, if they were, it was that they were more or less told what was going to happen, or "asked" in such a way that they had no choice but to accept.

    Then again, it's also possible they were all for it.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Law Enforcement, like the military, is a certain brotherhood. They know how each other their fellow LEO's operates. They did what he would have done with them. If you think they are bad people for that, it's your opinion, but it's a disappointing one.
