I respect all LEOs right up until they operate outside their job description.

As long as we continue to give up both our individual & collective civil rights to cops and politicians hired by us to
dictate policy and dole out punishment regarding how we choose to live our individual & collective lives, we will be abused.

Think about it... our local and state Law Enforcement Officers spend most of there time babysitting the dumbmasses so the
politicians can continue to gang rape said dumbmasses that are growing less resistant to their aggressive abusive behavior.

It stands to reason that a few of our local and state officials would be frustrated & fed-up with the dumbmasses causing them to vent some understandable yet unacceptable anger, but corrupt cops and politicians that operate outside their job description are the real danger to our way of life and our republic.

What can you do?

I've said it before, I'll say it again... cops have to deal with the dregs of society every day. Imagine if your job consisted of wondering if the driver you just pulled over has a chip on his shoulder the size of Ogionik's. WOndering if the domestic disturbance call you are going to will have a drunk guy with a gun, or if the crack head you are trying to subdue has aids or not...

These people have a very rough job and I don't envy them their job. But, all that considered, they still volunteered for the job and must stay within the bounds of the law and when they step outside, they need to be punished for it.

Based on the video in the opening post, I'd say they were looking for the specific rider and when he tried to get past them, the cop over reacted and knocked him over. That's the way it appears to me. I don't know the full details, but I'll give the cop the benefit of the doubt over an over-zealous bike rider involved in an event that is a bit shady to begin with.

I'm gonna close in the middle here tonight.

Being a cop is a shitty job. No two ways around it.

As a general rule, I steer clear of the group, but I have many old friends that are retired, or about to be, peace officers. (Also a couple not with us anymore)

Much like a slice of the rest of us, there are good and bad among them. Unfortunately, they carry guns, and enforce the rules.

Every example needs to be judged with all the facts, on its own merit.

I agree with your post in its entirety.

I like how you worded this
"Much like a slice of the rest of us, there are good and bad among them. Unfortunately, they carry guns, and enforce the rules.

Personally, I think there are good and bad cops. When the bad ones are known, they need to be fired and if appropriate charged with the crime they have committed. I try not to let the bad ones influence the way I think of the rest of them. I still believe there are more good cops than bad ones. I know that when I need help, I will still call 911.

F*cking piece of **** cops

Quote:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/07/30/AR2008073003299_2.html

As the police came in, Calvo said, they shot his 7-year-old black Labrador retriever, Payton, near the front door and then his 4-year-old dog, Chase, also a black Lab, as the dog ran into a back room. Walking through his house yesterday, Calvo pointed out a bullet hole in the drywall where the younger dog had been shot.

"I understand they have a job to do, but it didn't have to go like that," Calvo said. He said the police could have knocked on his door and asked him about the package. "I've never done drugs in my life. Anyone who knows me knows that I am so adamantly opposed to them."

Police said yesterday that, when they seized the package during the raid, it was unopened.

Berwyn Heights Police Chief Patrick Murphy said county police and the Sheriff's Office had not notified his department of the raid. He said town police could have conducted the search without a SWAT team.

"You can't tell me the chief of police of a municipality wouldn't have been able to knock on the door of the mayor of that municipality, gain his confidence and enter the residence," Murphy said. "It would not have been a necessity to shoot and kill this man's dogs."


People wonder why cops aren't trusted. It's because there is no recourse when they pull **** like this.

Or maybe this:

Quote:


Kid falls from an overpass, breaks his back and heel, and the cops tase him 19 goddamn times b/c he won't get up when they tell him to.

Evil or Very Mad Every one of those cops deserves more then they are going to get. Every one of them. I would be f*cking embarrassed to call myself police here in America.

Civilian review boards would have every one of those as$hole's jobs, if they even were allowed to exist. Easy to see why they aren't; can't have accountability, nope

So OGIONIK,
If your house gets burglarized, or your car gets stolen, or a member of your family gets attacked and robbed, or you fall victim to any other type of random crime, can we safely assume you wont call the cops?

You obviously have a computer.
And if you have no belongings, where do you live, how do you hold down a job, do you walk around naked all the time?

And if you get robbed, who are you gonna call?

this isnt my computer.

police have some use dont get me wrong.

writing tickets, filing reports, fining people...

i mean, sometimes they chase a bad guy. right on police!

It just so happens any good they do is far outweighed by the bs they are pulling the other 95% of the time.

I think offing the guys pets was secondary, I mean, if they're going to be in there they might as well waste the pets, in fact if I were writing the SOP, that would be Step 1 for all entry-scenarios - it's the search & seizure as a whole that's the problem. I mean, once we consider dog-shooting as going hand-in-hand with that kindof thing, it takes on a different flavor from 'well if you had nothing to hide'.

Tazering - same problem - if they feel the need to force the situation, they should go all the way or look for a different solution - but they're usually the ones that got spanked as kids so the whole script is engraved in their brain. It's like how operating alone cops are less sociopathic than when they've got a buddy. This captures my point nicely...

Forgive me, but to my mind you're doing a sub-optimal job of fearing things. I mean, that certainly would be a horrible thing to have happen, but that's no reason to focus on it - having a priority like that just gives them leverage on you - fear, like any emotion, is an impulse in the same manner as sex and drugs, it can either drive you to excellence or degeneracy depending on whether you force it to obey logic. What I fear, to my mind more constructively, is the failure of the social constructs that keep these swine from doing any particular kindof harm to that which I hold dear.
