1) I didn't even have to check the story to know the race of the family involved
2) 17 officers for some ecstasy?
3) They took a door off the hinges? Because...drugs?

I'm sure nothing will happen to these courageous heroes in blue but every one of them should lose their jobs.

Normally don't post here about cops being shitty, but this is beyond shitty.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...-years-n988631

A Pennsylvania police chief and his friend were arrested for allegedly sexual abusing a young girl over the course of at least seven years, according to the state's attorney general.

Weissport Chief of Police Brent Getz, 27, and Gregory Wagner, 28, allegedly raped a girl from the time she was 4 until she was 11 years old, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a press release Wednesday.

Getz and Wagner were charged Tuesday with rape of a child, aggravated indecent assault of a child and other related charges.

Police investigated the case multiple times since 2012 and pressed charges this week after a police search on Wagner's home.
As to evidence, well...

Wagner confessed to having sexual intercourse with the girl on at least three occasions when interviewed by police Tuesday, according to the criminal complaint. He also told police that Getz had sexual contact with the girl while Wagner played video games in the same room.

Cops making up false charges in order to arrest someone? Nah, they would never do that.

Drunk cop found not guilty in crash he caused.
You see blue lives do matter


Note also he was driving at night, speeding, and didn't have his headlights on. The woman he hurt hit been in the hospital for the past 7 months and hasn't been able to return to work.

Well it's more efficient to be judge, jury and executioner.

Cops gun down black couple sitting in car.
shoot fire and let god sort them out

Protests have been going on for the past week after cops shoot multiple shots into a park car. The cops say they thought the car was used in armed robbery, it wasn't but even if it was that isn't a good reason to shoot into the car without warning.

Well, they WERE black. So they had to die. It’s a good thing they didn’t but not for lack of effort.

Albuquerque police seize classic muscle car in suspicious DUI stop, keep it for 9 years. The seizure program is found unconstitutional, and APD returns it only under pressure.

The video at the end of the link is much better than the text story, but IB won't let me embed it.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

Not that I agree with the forfeiture law, but why on earth would he plead guilty to DUI if he only had 2 beers?

Nice that he got the car back, though. It would be incredibly frustrating to have any vehicle taken from you, but a project like that... Ouch!

I didn't follow the Sandra Bland story before. Clearly the cop wasn't in danger, but what made her commit suicide in her cell? Or is that being contested as well?

She could have suffering from depression and the arrest pushed her over the esge.

Or the cops figured they fucked up by committing a wrongful arrest and murdered her to cover it up.

There was video footage at the jail that indicates that she was not killed at the jail. But there is no question she would have been alive today without the arrest. It's atrocious that the only penalty to the cop was that he lost his job (for perjury, not for the arrest), and that he will never have a job in law enforcement again (still protecting us, I guess).
