Apparently this cop has been planting drugs on people for some time as there have been many allegations against him and finally some investigation. It is unclear how many times this cop could have abused his position of authority in more than just this way. In the video it shows him doing a field test for meth and it is supposed to turn blue, but it turns red, but he continues to tell the "suspect" he is under arrest for posession of meth.

Florida admits that 21% of the field tests are false positives and I wonder how many people's lives are destroyed or damaged by the arrest process of a false positive. Think about the stress and financial burden of having your car towed & impounded, lawyer fees (if you can afford one) and loss wages if not loss of job. People could loose their homes over this or at worst, end up in jail because the tests that were later to be performed were not because the "criminal" was pressured into a plea deal! Think about that! They get you with a false positive, but you might have had something or someone in the car, so you take the deal, and there is a 21% chance the test was false. This doesn't even account for the "few bad apples".

These body camera's seem to be a good thing and I think border agents should have to have them and for theirs to record at all times on the job due to the high levels of corruption it is currently facing.

I love body camera's. Win win for everyone.

Keeps the honest people honest and weeds out the corrupt.

As much as I hate public camera systems(street corners, etc). Anyone engaged in the position of public service/enforcement or being paid on the taxpayer dime should have them on them for oversight purposes.

As for the punishment in these situations. I think if you accept the role of being in a position of higher legal power, you should be subjected to a slightly higher level of punishment.

Double the legal minimums when it comes to sentencing? Revocation of their professional licensing?

I know the military has it's own tribunals for many crimes, many that could result in death compared to a similar crime committed by a citizen(vs an officer).

It's the burden you(should) bear when you choose to uphold the law to a higher standard.

My entire Air Force career, we were constantly reminded that we were held to a higher standard... a code of conduct above, and beyond civilians.

Law Enforcement should be held to a much higher standard... fines/sentencing for corruption should be doubled.

Prosecutors and judges convicted of corruption? Triple fines/sentencing, then lifetime banishment to Chicago public housing.

Agreed.

These days the police are just as powerful as the military and should be held to a higher standard. It really should be something that anyone willing to step up to that level of authority should be willing to shoulder.

In a way, "it comes with the territory". Not just the respect(which most of us have for military/law enforcement) but the burden of being in the position of authority.

"...the burden of being in the position of authority."

Understated brilliance...

...probably the most lucid statement ever submitted on ATS.

I totally agree with higher punishment for people in a position of authority but then I also think people need to have a higher incentive for the job, meaning higher pay, so corruption would not be as financially motivated. I know police budgets are tight, but I've seen the tax increases over the last 40+ years and I don't know how the townships/cities/boroughs don't have plenty of money to spend. Maybe more fiscal responsibility.

But they need to have stiffer punishments for people in authority both police and politicians.

That's pretty extreme, but I have to admit if forced to choose a direction. I'm in favor of more public hangings for anyone in the public service arena's.

Got to send a message after all.

Well, seeing you quote and respond to your own post has made me regret siding with your public hanging suggestion.

Public hangings are one thing, but quoting yourself on an internet forum is just plain nuts.....

Honestly, at this point. I just can't condone anything you say until you change your avatar.

It's weird, which says a lot because I'm weird and the elevated weirdness makes me feel unusually weirder than usual...in a very weird way.
