This police officer was not in badge or uniform when he assulted this woman, but the fact remains he is an officer of the law and we should be able to
expect some sort of moral conduct from these people even out of uniform.
The display that I saw in this video was one of the most disgusting things that I have witnessed in a long time. I think since we have started to get
video of these crimes we are starting to see that there are quite a few bad apples in society that are suppose to be serving and protecting
The thing that worries me most is that if this officer of the law was in uniform with badge and gun and under other circumstances the suspect would
probably be dead. I think it would be good to have a look at this guys history over the last 12 years. If he could do this to a 5'1, 115 pound woman
who knows what else he is capable of.
Had the camera not picked this up, he would have gotten off with a misdemeanor charge. I don't want to live in a survellence society anymore than
anyone else does, but sometimes the camera is the only witness we have to these attocities.
This is the most disgusting thing that I have seen in a very long time. To watch this guy beat her like she was a piece of meat and knowing that this
is who is suppose to be helping to serve and protect the citizens of Chicago, it's just mind numbing.
Though we understand that cops are human and entitled to a bad day, and they do a stressful job, that does not give them the right to act like this in
any capacity, and the fact that he was not on the job, or drunk does not excuse the behaviour, I am sure if he acts like this in one capacity, he is
fully capable and able to act like this in other capacities.
What was more disgusting for me were the guys in the background that were initially just standing around while this wild drunken man went after this
small woman, I mean she's like tiny, and the guys in the background are doing nothing. Police or not, this guy was viciously beating this woman and
the guys did nothing.
I just don't understand society sometimes. Anyways this story has a semi happy ending because after seeing the video, they upgraded the charges from
a misdeameanour and they are looking to get this guy off the force, but the sad part is for everyone 1 the camera picks up, there are probably
hundreads more that will never see justice.
How can we really get things turned around and changed as a society? Do we really have to be out there in civilian formation behind every cop to make
sure that they are accountable, or is there some kind of screening process that could be done to make sure that we get less of these violent types
attracted to these positions of power and authority?
How can the system be imporved.
