Not so much a problem as truth. People are people. There are bad people and there are good people (duh). There are all the shades of grey in between as well. That applies, as well, to cops. It is absolutely disingenuous to expect all police officers to behave as if they were angels with superhuman emotional control. After all, it's not like they see the absolute worst that humanity has to offer as a part of their job.

To my way of thinking, it is a horrid job and does not pay near enough to put up with the crap. I know I do not have sufficient emotional control to do the job.

I find it rather interesting how upset people have gotten about Brown's killing, whereas no one gives a crap that 7 died of gun shot wounds in Chicago last weekend. Seems a bit hypocritical to me.

Another hypocrisy: let's not bother to condemn the rioters and looters. We just seem to brush that under the rug and focus on police actions. Unfortunately the police are providing fuel enough to keep that going, but what about the business owners whose businesses were burned and or looted? I am sure they wished the police had done more.

There are so many subjective truths out there and most seem to be focused on but one aspect.

He puts out on a Public Forum the very reasons why he should be taken off the force! What A Freakin.... I don't want to resort to name calling but this guy definitely has some problems!!!


...And how many more carry the same sentiment around in their heads, having just enough sense not to broadcast it to the world on a public forum???

I 100% support/demand both dash cams and body cams, with access of data by a civilian authority.

here is a link to all his posts, or his offensive racist posts.

He should be fired for those posts on FB. If he has that attitude about people, he doesn't need to be carrying a gun.

He is a hate monger.

While I agree with that sentiment, I cant help but also cringe just a bit thinking about what an employer might think about things people post here on ATS. Would we feel violated if an employer took exception to something posted here and decided we needed to be terminated?

It's a double edged sword we live on these days.

Hmmm.looks like the police forgot to keep an eye on the police pages as they look through FB for people to harass or arrest. I suppose they are use to overlooking pages that match their own attitude.

Yup. I do.

My Sharpie may have something to say about people like this.

Anyone noticing a trend yet?


Hopefully the trend is some accountability for the way officers of the law present themselves and behave.

The real question is will it last?

Case in point why you should take caution if you are going to link certain things to FB that is your business/ and or name one. Should it have come to this, or be this way? That anyone can search your name on a site used by a large percent of the population, take that information then judge you buy it? No! Is it unfair? Very much so. I prefer how the net was the pre Facebook, reminds me of the anonymity of ATS. Can you stop employers for example from doing it? Judging you by how you look(age, attractiveness, disability, race, weight, etc.-when most of those are supposed to be protected by discrimination laws), what you comment on, how extensive your time line is to how your life is presented in general? Good luck with that.

Privacy? Forget the NSA for a second! We threatened our own. People love it as social networking, they continue to use it to say they are trapped in the grid promoted to them. Now they have made their bed because their name will be searched especially by media, and of course employment, if they chose to be opinionated or down right inexcusable as the OP subject was.

You're probably right about the ratio. Seems to me if people are going to be given the authority to police others with loaded rifles, they ought to be the side of the ratio who DON'T feel like protesters should be shot on day 1?

Not even gonna answer your second question, dear.

I understand what you are saying Bracken. One big difference...ATS is not FB. I know many people in my personal life and through work, but have only mentioned my membership here to a few of those people.

FB is like an living in a glass house. If you are going to write racist hateful things on your glass walls, then you have to be ready to deal with the consequences.

I just find it strange that there was supposedly more police violence against the 'peaceful' protesters than the ones that were looting and rioting. Don't try to stop crime, just pretend to prevent imaginary 'potential' crime because it's safer.

I don't support demonizing the officer over his FB posts. It's too much of a slippery slope, I think every one of us here writes things we would rather not deal with in RL and for many people, especially those with lower tech skills they end up using FB as that place. I also happen to not agree with holding someone accountable for on the job performance for off the job actions.

That's nothing more than giving employers the right to control our lives. What this cop said was in poor taste, but I see a world where he's accountable for those words as much worse than one where he isn't.

The thing about FB, you can control who sees each an every post. From "Only Me" to "Friends Only" to "Friends of Friends" to "Everyone." He said they should have been shot on day 1, and then he chose to share it with the world.

And about the employer thing. What if, when I was a teacher, I posted that my 7th grade drama class needed to be lined up and shot because they were just a bunch of hoodlums. Should I be relieved of my duties as a public school teacher? Damn skippy.

There ARE grey areas. But his FB post, and my (fictional) example above, are not. They are blatant. And they are indicative of persons lacking the necessary discretion, self control, and mental fortitude to serve the public in those capacities.

If you're that stupid to post something like that after all the negative press about the police, you definitely shouldn't be carrying a gun nor be on the police force!

I'll have to say as a non-user of social media I got a real chuckle from this one. I constantly see news items where cops have solved a crime because some criminal posted criminal activities on social media. Usually at the end of the article there will be a quote from some police official along the lines of, "Well, criminals aren't too smart, they tend to brag too much to their friends and post stupid stuff on social media."
I rest my case....
