Police brutality cases on rise since 9/11

The heightened prosecutions come as the nation's largest police union fears that agencies are dropping standards to fill thousands of vacancies and "scrimping" on training.

With all of the news stories concerning tasers, it seems like everyday there is another one about police brutality in America. I didn't need this story to know this is true.

Can we as American's trust the police? Trust is everything to me, and frankly I don't trust them anymore! I don't trust all police to do the right thing, it's a power issue with these people. I choose not to involve myself in power issues, if I can anyway.

They do not seem to be protecting and serving us. The lack of proper training and the need for warm bodies to fill vacancies are showing why this problem is occurring, they need to have better standards of who becomes a police officer.

Thanks for bringing this news, I personally was wondering if the reason for so many cases of police brutality was just a paranoia about a police state becoming realizaton or if it was something more than just an exaggerated amount of police issues threads.

Well it seems that indeed is something to see and be worry after all.
