It is a crying shame that it has come to this but those days are over.

The police no longer serve the average citizen. I myself do not like to accuse all police of corruption and bully tactics as some are great cops.

However, American citizens are now the prey, from police, military and any other authorive agency.

Your rights are now on borrowed time and if anything you are now officially property of the Corporation that is the United States of America LLC.

But now the time is to not take it. You have weapons and are used to using them. Stop killing each other and start protecting each other from the real threat to your safety.

Good luck!

Now for this exercise replace the topic at hand, "cops", with a race, sexual orientation or religion of your choice. Not so fun to jump on the bandwagon now is it?


You make some valid points; however, (and I'm sure others might have already pointed this out because of the obvious flaw of your statement) a cop is a cop because he/she chooses to be a cop. Race, gender, sexual orientation is NOT a choice.

I'm really trying (lol) not to be insulted by the overly weak argument in your above statement. Cheers.

Pathetic excuse for a cop. I have seen so many videos of cop beating kids, tasered innocents, beating American soldiers etc what more can you ask me?

I think at this point I speak for many when I say "Those with the real authority issues are the ones in authority".

I'm used to the police in Australia where if you haven't done anything wrong you can actually approach and have a conversation with them, here a cop is your semi friend, their corrupt as hell but understand you have to at least put on a face to the public. However the more and more i read of these cops in the US the more i realise they really aren't there to protect or serve. How can they preach human rights so loudly and still ignore there own backyard?

Steroids. And they need to be drug tested once a month for them.

This is unbelievable, I cannot fathom what went through the cops head besides "I'll get away with it". Disgusting is what this is.

We are subject to random drug testing at anytime. Not really sure where you get the idea steroids are being all of this.

We only have one side of the story based on what the mother claims to have happened. She's also looking to make a huge amount of money from the allegations.

I'd hold fire until the whole truth comes out.

I think that when a cop abuses the public and the city has to pay damages, the damage amount should come out of the salaries of all the cops on the force, proportional to their pay, i.e., higherups pay more.

That would give them incentive to root out the "bad apples" and to abide by the laws themselves.

Yes exactly; well said

Just another reason that they think they can get away with this abuse

The conniving Gestapo know that the public tax fund pays for their horrendous abuse and atrocities

Instead they should be personally responsible IMO (For the payed damages, Or sentencing(charges))

Lets hit the core of the problem.

Although i like your idea too

DAYTON, Ohio (CN) - Dayton police "mistook" a mentally handicapped teen-ager's speech impediment for "disrespect," so they Tasered, pepper-sprayed and beat him and called for backup from "upward of 20 police officers" after the boy rode his bicycle home to ask his mother for help, the boy's mom says.


Courthouse News Service

Seriously? Really? How do you even do this? What kind of human being do you have to be to even attempt to try something like this. Unforgivable. Let me tell you something, even IF this kid wasn't handicapped, and even IF he was being "disrespectful" to the Officer by mocking him, I don't believe that gives the Officer authority to chase him down, pepper-spray and Taser him. The police force are given entirely too much control and power. If I was that Officer I'd be so ashamed of myself. Grrrr.... I don't want to turn this in to a rant!


Every time I read something like this, it always begs to me the question; What can I do to help? or What can WE do to prevent the Police from abusing their power.



You Americans, this is not a nice thing, but not that crazy really!

I am from Pretoria, South Africa... Let me tell you something that happened here earlier this year.
A woman from Johannesburg was in her car in front of a police station. When she tried to drive into a parking space, she bumped the policecar in front of her (not a huge bump, minute...like...oops...sorry!). The car guard outside looking after the cars in the street, called a police officer from inside the police station building to help. This police officer got next to the car, pulled out his firearm and shot the lady...DEAD

You got to understand though, how hard it is to do that sometimes. I mean, 20 cops got called to this, and none of them stepped in to sort this dodgy cop out? To me, that speaks volumes about the type of person who is in the police force. If any one of those men or women, had a tiny bit of good in them, they'd have stopped this kid from being tazered, pepper sprayed and beaten. But they didn't. I do not know to what extent they were involved, but they didn't stop anything from happening, which is very worrying.

Oh, and as a side note, I've seen people on here from the US use the term "peace officer" and until I read the article in the opening post, I thought they were all being ironic
(cos it is rather ironic)

Indeed. That was my Uncle and I am proud of the fact he was a good guy and tried to do his part in outing the scumbag element in the force. Shame it had to end with him leaving and losing all respect for cops.
