I know people who have said their dog would never attack anyone, yet we have had several fatal dog attacks around these parts in recent years. If people dont think their dog will do harm (too much like themselves ???) what hope do they have of accepting their child will do harm ?
What does this have to do with the subject at hand? Are you talking about the mother of that cop who would have said, 'Oh, my son would NEVER stomp on another man's head after he had lain himself on the ground with hands out in surrender?'
How much responsibility should selectors bear ? They may well think a person is unsuitable, but they are short staffed. The Police psychologist may want to pull a person off beat duty, but higher-ups need the manpower.
If they KNOWINGLY sent a powder keg waiting to blow out to wield his power to abuse on the community - they bear responsibility.
Fellow officers should have stopped the attack. How much responsibility should they bare ?
Even more than the people who weren't there and set him loose in the community. How much responsibility should you bear when you see a person abusing another person and do nothing to stop it?
I know I would hold myself very responsible if I stood by and watched without taking action to stop it.
How much responsibility should criminals in general bear ? Would you like to arrest a **** thrower, a biter, a spiter or a HIV addict with a needle ?
Some, for sure. They put themselves in an unpredictable situation - don't they?
But how many of them expect to be subdued and arrested by an out-of -his-mind psychopath who likes to stomp on peoples' heads?
Let's put it this way - I'm a habitual speeder. Should I really have to worry about being stopped, dragged out of my car and abused by a rogue cop everytime I exceed the speed limit?
Part of the casualties in this "war" are the Police. Pain is a natural learning device. Why cant we use it ? What would we do to a soldier who lost it ?
I'm saying, if he's unfit for the job - take him out of the job. Or do you want to wait until he kills someone? He very easily could have given this man permanent brain damage. Would that have been alright with you?
We have now reached the stage where people are locked up and the criminals roam free.
If they are put in gaol, we have to pay for them to do nothing...perhaps do an education course...whilst a good men outside prison struggles to get ahead because we wont pay for him to study for free. The prisoner probably gets to watch a TV after being arrested for stealing a TV from the good man who never gets it back.....he has to work to get another one.
Sounds like you're envious. Would you want to trade places with an inmate?
I know I wouldn't. I wouldn't have wanted to live their lives before incarceration, I wouldn't want to live their lives during incarceration, and I wouldn't want to try to live their lives after they get out.
And I don't care how many tv shows I got to watch for free.
And you are complaining if someone loses their temper ? I am surprised it is not more common.
There's a difference between losing your temper and stomping on an inert and unarmed man's skull.
And you don't even know what you're talking about.
Are you certain ?
Yeah, when it comes to you assigning motivation for attitudes or beliefs to ME - I am certain you have no idea what you're talking about.
You don't know me.
