Thanks for that info there.. But Im speaking more in terms of long term.
Does he have a long history of being a trouble maker?
People who tend to have a long rap sheet are lifers.. And spend most their lives in jail. And tend to fire up cops.. These cops get so sick of
busting these guys time after time, and the crooked system they serve let them go free to do it again!!!
But these cops should show more restraint, and set an example for others.
It did no good to slap the man in the face..
It only showed me that cops will bring themselfs to a criminals level.
They stoop just as low as what ever this guy did..
Shameful.. And the cops IMO should be charged with assult..
They need to uphold the law, and show us.. They are the "good" guys.
But rarely do I ever see real "good" guys.
And granted.. Most of what we see with Cops is all the bad stuff.
Rarely do we see videos of Cops doing the right thing, and doing good.
Yet don't take me wrong.. Im not a cop lover.. And I think most of them are pigs!!! And they make me nervous! Like my life hangs in the balance of
their day.. If they are having a crappy day.. Well most the time they will make sure you have a crappy day too..
And I have never been arrested in my life.. Every time I come in contact with a cop.. Its yes sir, no sir.. I try my best to show them respect.. Even
tho I might be thinking something totally different..
These guys are out there.. And they don't get paided Jack!
From what I know.. Most cops only make 45-50K per year.. And thats rounding up.. AS far as I know..
You get what you pay for..
Bottom line.. I think if cops had better training, and made more money you might see less of this kind of action.
They will pay a man to act like a cop millions of dollars.. Yet the real boys in blue.. Make chicken feed.. Its a crazy backwards world we live
This video seems quite tame compared to Oscar Grant's execution.
Sure does seem tame.. But see what that is doing to us.. Its making us numb.. And feeling like.. Oh well he didnt get it that bad.. so its okay?
No its still wrong.. and its still not right..
But again.. Atleast they didnt shoo the guy!! Or taser him..
He got a slap in the face.. He should count himself lucky..
But hey.. You see how they control our minds now? They do so much bad.. That when something bad happens that is lighter than what we are use to.. We
tend to poo it off, and say.. hey it could have been worse..
Well in all honesty it could have gone down much better..IMO
They really didnt have to slap the guy..
But hey.. in our minds.. He is lucky..
See how this works?
Edit-- Grammer fix, heh Im a horrid speller..
