Personally I get off when humans put their lives on the line daily are shat upon by wankers that wouldn't say a word in a cops face but feel more than willing to be "manly" on an internet forum.

I was hoping to avoid people with your angry, resentfulness on this thread. I acknowledged in the very beginning of the OP many of your points. And those are not the points of this thread. This thread merely shows another perspective. I am not suggesting to dismiss other points, just set them aside so I can put law enforcement in a different light of what has become "popular."
For a minute there I thought I was ready Jack Bauer's medical records.
I dislike cops (or anyone, for that matter) who have attitudes or are on a power trip;
Sometimes I route for the bad guy (and not just in the movies);
My loyalty rests in my integrity more so than in any fraternity, organization, membership or co-workers;
I do enjoy certain privileges due to my position, although I have come not to expect or abuse them;
I believe in treating people with dignity and respect, until they become a potential threat, at which point I will respond in kind;
I see you safe and protected, and wish you well.
Many people don't realize where most of their problems come from.........and take it out on the only authority figure. Many of societies ill come from our flawed social system and economies.
What do you expect from a society which encourages people to be ignorant, violent and moronic trash?

cops being too lax in being aware of their surroundings.
I stated how easy it would be to Monday Morning quarterback. Are you a cop? Have you ever been shot at? for your information, this cop had already been counseled on using excessive force in the past with previous non-compliant subjects, hence the hesitation. So basically, what you have here is a 2-year deputy, having been counseled before, in a traffic stop with a subject with a clean criminal history, who decided today was the day he would execute a cop. But of course, YOU know what YOU would have done.
If you were trying to use these videos as an excuse as to why cops have a habit of being excessive in the force they use then I have to say you failed.
No - you failed. You fail to see what the cops are up against and, until you are in those shoes, you might just "shut the front door" until you can speak from experience of which, you have none.
But thanks for your useless response.edit on 17-6-2011 by capod2t because: (no reason given)edit on 17-6-2011 by capod2t because: (no reason given)edit on 17-6-2011 by capod2t because: (no reason given)
