Thanks, that's what I was looking for. Can you point me to those threads? Or at least give me a hint what to look for?
I'm at work so I'll have to reply with more later.

“I don’t regret it, I’d do it again”
Buffalo , NY– While killer cops get sent on paid vacations, it’s hard to imagine what one has to do to actually be fired. It turns out, the answer is be a good cop.
Former Buffalo Police Officer, Cariol Horne is fighting for her pension since she was fired after 19 years on the force, over an incident in 2006 when she stopped a fellow officer from choking a handcuffed suspect.
Horne had received a call that Officer Gregory Kwiatkowski was at the scene of a domestic dispute and in need of assistance. When she arrived, she witnessed Kwiatkowski violently punching the handcuffed suspect in the face.
Is this SOP in most depts?
n almost every single video we see, there are other officers present and allowing it to happen. Sadly, with departments across the nation upholding their reputation of vilifying anyone who dares to cross the thin blue line, it’s no wonder there is such a shortage of police willing to speak out against the atrocities we have been witnessing.
While many police may choose this line of work because they want to be “heroic,” Horne is a true hero- and she does not regret her actions. Nobody ever said being a hero is easy.
The system is broken and I don't see it changing with the militarization of Law enforcement.
Gregory Kwiatkowski, a retired lieutenant, was arrested last month in Montague, a small rural community southwest of Watertown, and charged with driving while intoxicated and refusing to take a breathalyzer test.
Kwiatkowski and two other officers, Raymond Krug and Joseph Wendel, are defendants in a criminal prosecution charging them with violating the civil rights of four teenagers who were 17 and 18 at the time of the incident on Treehaven Road in Buffalo.All three officers are accused of using excessive force, and all three have pleaded not guilty.
