So my question is why give THEM the benefit of the doubt?
Because simply being a police officer does not in any way, shape or form make them automatically a bad person who abuses the badge. Would it be fair for people to just blindly despise you simply because of your chosen career? By doing that, you are no better than "THEM".
So it says in there that the lawyer took the job cos he'd get publicity? It says that they found drugs in his system? I didn't say EVERYTHING was an assumption...
They then set out to "probe" the kids throat with a sharp object, as he was "choking on a bag of drugs," (according to officers), only no bag of drugs were found on his person or in his throat.
This is MURDER! THEY MURDERED SOMEONE and should be TRIED FOR MURDER!
The county ended up paying the family an undisclosed amount but all the parents wanted was an apology. An apology that NEVER came. The sheriff department never said they were at fault but she's dead

This is a story repeated time and time again, here's just a few from the last couple years starting with Kelly Thomas:
Two police officers, Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli, are now on trial for the killing of Thomas, who suffered from schizophrenia. Cops used their fists and batons to beat Thomas. They Tasered him multiple times. Cause of death was apparently "mechanical suppression of the thorax."
The death of a man with Down syndrome who was reportedly killed after lying face-down in police custody has been ruled a homicide.
WJLA reports that Robert Saylor, 26, of New Market, Md., was asphyxiated on Jan. 12, according to a medical examiner's ruling late last week.
A 25-year-old suburban Detroit man who died after a confrontation with mall cops was captured in a cellphone video shouting "I can't breathe" after being pepper-sprayed and pinned to the ground during the altercation.
McKenzie Cochran died Tuesday night following the dust-up with guards at Northland Mall in Southfield, Mich., some 20 minutes outside of the city.
Luis Rodriguez died after being held down by five policemen in the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore.
His distraught wife, who is recording the takedown on her cellphone, can be heard screaming, "You kill him! You kill him! You killed my husband!"
Unarmed people, beaten and suffocated by overzealous, out of control animals with badges.
Dont hate all police because a few break some rules people forget about how many police are wrongly killed every year or assaulted just for being a police officer, not all police are corrupt if anything its their government superiors who tell them to do wrong and of they dont then they cant provide for their family because then they lose the job of bei g an officer and almost any case ive seen of an officer standing up to big brother they was sent to prison on a bogus charge or the was "shot by some thug in an ally" its all politcs, im just asking everyone please look st other perspectives before you hate all police thanks
wow, so the kid was working undercover for them and they did this to him? I agree with you, this is insane stuff.
