An Arizona police officer pulled a gun on the wrong person in a case of road rage. A former Arizona state senator has come forward, stating that a police officer threatened to kill him for doing nothing more than honking at an unmarked van that was about to cause a traffic accident.


Well... I'm glad that finally, this issue is being observed by members of Congress. Can they still continue to ignore the growing problem of out of control cops in the US?

Watch.. Now well here about this discussion in the national conversation.

That is Karma. Go ahead and be a dick, the universe will sort it out.

I don't see this as a catalyst for political discussion though.

Karma for what? So you don't think this senator is going to see a problem with this action and do something about it?

Wow...

Are you always this confrontational? I'm agreeing with you. If this tool just whips out a gun he's probably done it before and got away with it. KARMA brought this to light and he's going to pay. Does THAT make sense?

From the OP's source....


Sweet then yelled at them “be careful who you honk at the next time,” before driving off.


HAHAHA...talk about irony....smh

Too many "officers of the law" these days are out of control. Hopefully this will bring some awareness to the problem.

Yes and thank god. I am confrontational, but I was perplexed. The problem is I'm used to people responding with complete nonsense I typically assume the worst. Bad habit I know.

I am pretty sure someone here can post something that defends and explains the legality of Officer Sweet's actions.

As much as I would like to think this is one of those incidents that starts a change, I doubt it.

Now we just need this to happen to a few hundred more and maybe, MAYBE there'll be some changes. Hope so!

I'm one of the biggest supporters of LEO's here but wrong, stupid, idiotic, moronic, whatever you want, can't be accepted.

Maybe he secretly loved it and new their plan has been working?

Lol

Interestingly enough, the officer was arrested and booked on aggravated assault. I can't recall if, in prior incidents, that was so quick an outcome or not. I'm thinking "no" but maybe somebody remembers a similar case that had a similar hasty outcome that didn't involve a former member of Congress?

As long as the police stick to violating the rights of average people they are in the clear. This has been proven over the last decade.

As long as people live in absolutism nothing constructive will come about. That's historical fact.

Oh, OK, People rights are a sometimes thing. Makes sense now.

I doubt this man will get much of a punishment anyway.

I haven't defended this tool in any manner. What I'm saying is that if you equate all with one, ABSOLUTISM, it is not constructive. If one looks at a black person and goes, "Err", that's racism. Even if it stays inside their head. If one looks at a cop and goes, "Err", it's pretty much the same "type" of hate. Blind absolutism. It isn't healthy.

The Senator is suggesting more counseling and training for LEO's. I would suggest drug testing for steroid use.


Abuse of anabolic steroids may lead to aggression and other psychiatric problems, for example. Although many users report feeling good about themselves while on steroids, extreme mood swings can also occur, including manic-like symptoms and anger (“roid rage”) that may lead to violence. Researchers have also observed that users may suffer from paranoid jealousy, extreme irritability, delusions, and impaired judgment stemming from feelings of invincibility.

www.drugabuse.gov...


From Boston to Arizona, police departments are investigating a growing number of incidents involving uniformed police officers using steroids. So-called "juicing" has been anecdotally associated with several brutality cases, including the 1997 sodomizing of Haitian immigrant Abner Louima in New York City.

I'm not equating all as one. But when 'honest' men in the force don't work to remove these bad ones, it doesn't look good for the whole lot. Almost all we ever see is defense of the questionable actions.

Never so stupid. Must say I had to laugh at the Senator, or former Senator asking for a programme for all the department..he has a sense of humour, and I must say a bit of grit too.
BTW, I thought there is a need to look directly at the mugshot camera in the front view..

I would say, 0.0000111 to infinity

Steroids anyone? police really should be regularly tested for illegal substances given that they have access to them on a frequent basis and incidents such as this point to something as an aggravating factor. Steroid use has long been a problem and nothing has been done about it.
