Your view would be much preferred......... if it worked.
Suppose you "demand" it and nothing happens? What next? The problem is widespread, so maybe you finally get these 2 cops arrested, they get
slapped on the wrist and move on, then what?
I'm afraid those days are gone, and it is time to revisit what has worked in the past. If I were personally affected, I would handle it myself, and
if I were the victim and unable to handle it, there are many others that would take care of it for me.
I work closely with law enforcement, and I know the vast majority of them are good folks, and then there are some that are a little to quick to react
to their pride or ego being injured, and they shouldn't be cops, but they're not bad people, and then there are those rare few sickos. Any
organization probably has similar numbers, but when the cops are not dealt with by their own, and when the legal system refuses to deal with them,
sometimes other means are necessary.
Personally, I am a BIG FAN of vigilanteeism, as long as they make 100% certain they are getting the correct guilty parties. It only goes wrong when
there is group think, and people want a head on a platter, like in the Zimmerman case. When vigilanteeism is one on one, and the guilty party gets
the appropriate justice, I see nothing wrong with it, in fact I think it is the best possible solution.
