This goes far beyond sad. It's tragic. It's sick. It's disgusting. I have lost all respect for law enforcement. Every single ounce of respect.
People who claim it's a few bad apples are in denial, or insane. This is now the norm. Abusing power, and killing citizens is almost a weekly
occurrence. There's never a huge outcry from the departments after something like this. They place the office on leave, usually paid, and say
they'll "investigate". It's a culture, and gang culture. They look out for themselves, and cover for each other, after being involved in criminal
acts. Murderous acts of violence. Most officers at best, tolerate this behavior, and at worst, are involved and try to cover the tracks.
Not sure I'll be commenting in these types of threads for awhile. It's the same damn thing, over and over. I cop abuses his power, and someone else
takes the brunt of a tragic, sometimes fatal situation, and the cops colleagues try to cover it up for him. It's depressing. My heart goes out to
this kid and his family. Could have easily been me at 14.
