Then it's their word against ours and the system is set up to favor them.
    God that's so why we need a change in the law. How are they able to get away with this.

    They're afraid to respond. Worried about carma. Tell him I'm not a Bernie. Do you have to be a Bernie to be against beating old people and others.

    He's against people having rights until the day comes that he needs them.

    If he was my Grandfather, he would NOT have been homeless.

    Since I am German, what does Nazi Germany have to do with this?

    Ever heard of a police state? What do you think, lm talking about roses. Even roses have thorns. Maybe he was your grandfather and only looked homeless.

    Here you have an opportunity to say, in general terms that go beyond my example to say police brutality is wrong. Then, in my example it clearly is a terroristic threat. It doesn't make the news fake or liberal when this stuff is reported. There were two links given on the brutal reality of police violence. It so disturbing It shows how "ludacris" people can be.

    Being homeless is not a reason to do this. Neither is attempting to get people out of the way of a hurricane.

    Go ahead and say it. Cops should beat up homeless people-- accept he was also old, and a human being.

If they refuse to move, arrest them, if they resist, then use minimum amount of force necessary to accomplish the arrest. Don't come out threatening violence. That's not protecting, or serving anyone.
    I'm sure, in this case, it was a very stressful moment.

    They can attack you because they're under stress?

    I'm going to love this Law and Order forum. Looks like I found the swamp that needs to be drained.

    I look forward to exposing those who don't give a crud about law, order, or humanity

You were offended that the cop just may have saved that mans life..

    Also,, Since you care so much,, did you run over to the policeman as say,, I will take care of this man officer, he will come home with me until the storm is over.. You can bet your a$$ you did not.. what did you do? you got on this website and shared your "passion" for the homeless..

    Oh,, and if it was my Grandfather, he would not be homeless..

    If you do a little research you will find that police had to force MANY homeless people to move out of the danger zone..

    But I also saw a video of police officers refusing homeless people who had registered to use a certain storm shelter to enter that shelter. The homeless people had to get on a bus and go to a shelter somewhere else (I think it was a salvation army shelter) and not where they resided because they had 2 choices, get on that bus or not get into a shelter.

    Your wording indicates you haven't seen a single video on tv, and you claim is that you watch tv everyday. So wording mixup?

    Out of curiosity, how many videos would you need to see before this became a concern for you? And do they have to be homeless people, or just any pedestrian failing to comply without being detained.
    I was responding to a poster who said this:

    It's on TV every day. It's a given. I don't need to prove this. It's self evedent.

    Context is important, the only "mixup" seems to be on your part in not following the timeline that led to my post.

    As for the rest of your post, how many hypothetical questions can you and your ilk put out there where what you claim to be happening isn't really happening on the scale you portray it to be happening on?

    I'm all about punishing dirty cops. The video above, even when show in it's entirety (not the edited version that was originally submitted) shows a cop using excessive force. The cop should be punished IMO. But as is the case with so many of these incidents, videos are edited or additional videos from a different angle, show a completely different picture than what what we were led to believe. Most cops are good people and good cops. But just as with any large section of individuals, there are going to be a few bad apples. Doesn't matter if they're cops, politicians, judges, doctors, lawyers or sanitation workers. I understand that cops have quite a bit of authority and that the dirty cops should be dealt with in the judicial system.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
