    The corporate gestapo is quick to investigate when its one of their own. Not so quick to do anything when it is murder with a badge.

      I won’t paint all LEO’s with the same brush the same as I won’t judge all people by the actions of a few.
      I once tried for the position of State Trooper, on reflection I’m glad I didn’t score high enough to be considered.

        Agreed, I know more than a few fine members of law enforcement. I only wish I was not disappointed by the actions of so many so these days.

          It’s slowly becoming an US AGAINST THEM situation in too many cities, I have no idea what it will take to turn things around.

            They are going to have to start cleaning house.

            I agree, it’s a very real concern. You have to wonder how bad it has to get before enough people recognizes it as a problem and overhaul of the system.

        I will paint the whole blue line with one paint brush. Have you seen the SYSTEMIC disease infecting the blue line over the last 40 years? It is an epidemic.

          So would I be correct in assuming you’ve been arrested unjustly in the past and it wasn’t your drugs they found in the jacket you borrowed from your friend?

            Guess you have not been watching the news for the last decade. And for your info violent crime rates have gone down somewhat in the civilian population.

            I’ve spent too much time paying attention to current events and I can see the crimes being committed by both. I’m not able to site the relevant stats for the public or police but I do know that too many are getting away w/what’s called justifiable self defense when in fact it’s murder.

    With all the innocent citizens being killed by cops. This was bound to start happening.

    RIP Killing someone always seems to be the answer for some

    I’ve always thought if I saw a Police Officer in a scuffle with someone and the Officer was loosing… I would lend assistance to the Officer (As a child I was conditioned to think the Cops were ALWAYS the good guys) I automatically thought the person “must have done something wrong” Now when I see something going on there are ALWAYS a group of Officers.. and I hear them yelling things like “STOP RESISTING!” and as far as I can tell.. it didn’t look like they were “resisting” it just looked like a “swarm” of officers being un-necessarily rough.. I just witnessed this at the V.A. Healthcare facility… The Cops were swarming on a shirtless man in the V.A. parking lot.. yelling at him to “STOP RESISTING” as they were grinding his face into the asphalt, and as far as I can tell he was just trying to protect his face from the asphalt (blood was streaming down the side of his head) when they were “cuffing” him they twisted his arm into what looked to me like a VERY unnatural position, when he yelled out they were hurting him they just responded with “stop resisting” That’s when I “BLURTED out” “He’s not resisting!” It was out of my mouth before I could stop it. Then feeling like a coward because I didn’t do more.. I couldn’t help thinking I was about to get in trouble with the (Cops) myself, and I already had enough trouble with them (don’t get too excited… mostly for traffic violations left unpaid, that went to warrant) I learned later that the V.A. Cops were called because the man was frustrated with the V.A. about something, and he was getting “loud” and acted threatening toward some of the employees… although some of the Vets I talked to felt “he wasn’t being THAT bad” I don’t know because I wasn’t there during that part of it… If you are a man, living in the United States you stand a VERY good chance of going to jail or prison at some point in your life. This makes me think of a quote…..“The world is a dangerous place not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing”Albert Einstein
