Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

^ It's gotten to the point when we as a country make every excuse for police to use force. If a "suspect" twitches, tenses up his arms, turns around, doesn't lie face down, that's enough reason for police to feel threatened and hit people or shoot them.

Cops threaten to shoot black family which includes two kids and a pregnant woman. The cops also slammed the father's head into the police car. They got into a tussle with the mother when they tried to take the baby. The baby was injured in the tug of war. All the while the cops are screaming that they are going shoot them. Note this is over a one dollar doll that the police claims one of the kids walked out with. The police are refusing to release the officers name and they are still on duty. The family is suing the police department for 10 million.

Also adding the cops that came on the scene didn't do anything to calm the situation down.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

The Black Panther Party idea on how to end police racism/violence was to only have police officers patrol in the neighborhoods they lived in. So instead of having some guy who lives in White Heights 20 miles away come into your neighborhood and act like he was superior to everyone, you'd have officers that people grew up with and still had a vested interested in the neighborhood.

Man arrested with IV in him and in hospital robe.
They tried to kill him

Security claimed the man was trying to steal the IV to sell on ebay. The man told him his doctor told him to walk around outside. I kind of find it hard to believe someone would steal a IV without their clothes and with the IV still stuck in them. Also all they needed to do was ask the doctor. The guy unfortunately passed out on the way to jail.

^ And watch the pretext he used for searching someone's car at 5:30. The idea is that, if you are clean, you have nothing to hide, right? And all this started because supposedly the car had a bad tail light. Even without the arrest for the planted drug, the stop took over 10 minutes. This cop is a pig.

I guess these aren't "bad apples" because they didn't shoot anyone.

Cop ignores stop sign and causes a accident. Cop then arrests other person.
Just a few bad apples

The cop was driving a unmarked SUV when he ran the stop sign. Carlos then side swipes the van. The cop forces the guy to the ground and arrests him. However, the entire accident was caught by a neighbors security cam proving the cop caused the accident by running the stop sign.

Also note there were multiple officers in the SUV and none stopped this. Just a few bad apples.

This is exactly why the argument of "a few bad apples" often doesn't work with police. In many companies, often workers are tougher with each other than the boss is, because they don't want one on their team who is a "slacker" or does things to give the team a bad name. But that is often not true with police. Whenever one officer is accused, the whole group feels attacked, and they gel around that person to protect him/her. The idea is, if they succeed in bringing down that officer, anyone of us could be next. Well, anyone of them would not be next if they were not like that accused officer, but that's not how they think unfortunately.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

No the “a few bad apples” saying does apply, as long as you continue the whole expression. “A few bad apples spoils the whole bunch.” And it’s true of cops.

Good point, and there sure are a lot of spoiled bunches of cops out there these days. It's disgusting IMO.

I would like to see more cases where the good apples say, they are nothing like us, please get rid of them and punish them as harshly as you want, instead of reflexively defending them because they are police too, and no civilian can appreciate how tough our jobs are.

I'd love to see that as well, but unfortunately it just doesn't seem to be a part of their culture, and that's a big problem that's just getting worse.

I love the hypocrisy when they try to get people to turn in their criminal friends/relatives/etc and yet they won't do the same shit with their dirty partners/co-workers.

Cop shot and killed a civilian (next door neighbor of a friend I don't see much) who had a screwdriver on them and supposedly had threatened some people last week in the town next to mine during a 4th of July celebration. Will be going to a city council meeting on it next week and post an update
