The Pigs are just trying to protect their unreasonable legal protections against civilian oversight.
Civilian does wrong, get's arrested, goes to jail until bail/trial.
Must pay for own defense.
Must also sue to get losses back if found not-guilty.
Cop does wrong gets instant high-price union lawyer representation. Paid for by tax-dollars.
Cop get's reviewed by superior. Get's off totally if superior says it's okay.
If not, then cop gets reviewed by Internal Affairs or similar sub-section, Gets off if IA says it's okay.
If not, then cop gets reviewed by local prosecutor. Gets off if Prosecutor says it's okay.
If not, then cop goes to trial (never jail time for the mob in blue) and gets paid for time off.
(yes, all of these steps are unconstitutional.)
Most trials will favor cops, because of their undeserved reputation, plus there is no such thing as a unbiased judge.
Judges ALWAYS favor cops, unless they simply can't find a legal-loophole to dismiss the charges on.
Prosecutor gets paid by the state, the Judge gets paid by the state.
Think about that...
Anyways, I hope these cops never get their unreasonable protections back.
In fact, I hope their next step is the reduce-pay line.
