To serve and protect alright, everyday, every week, new instances of those we trust to keep us safe doing anything but. It's alarming that it just keeps going, did these people not take an oath, are they not human just like us struggling to get bye. When did the ego's take over a make these people into monsters.

All police even the ones on here give your damn heads a shake remember it's us the law abiding citizens who pay your salary, your bills, your mortgage, we the people should admonish you for our safety not be afraid that you are about to disturb it.

If you are already an ego drivin angry idiot then maybe police work isn't for you, if you are not out to protect people but enforce your own wills and ideals choose different work, cause you evidently don't care for the people your sworn to protect.

The officer has turned himself and been charged..

Minneapolis police officer charged with felony assault for bar patio punch


ANOKA, Minn. (KMSP) -

Minneapolis Police Sgt. David Clifford was charged Monday with third degree assault for allegedly punching a man unconscious for talking loud on his cell phone on a bar patio in Andover.

Cmdr. Paul Sommer of the Anoka County sheriff's office said Clifford remained in jail Monday and will make an initial court appearance on the felony charge Tuesday morning.


But hey - maybe he had a good reason?


Clifford told police he was at the bar to meet his wife and discuss National Night Out plans. He said he took offense to some language Vander Lee was using, and asked him to stop.

Vander Lee started using the language again a short time later, at which point Clifford confronted him. The officer told police he thought Vander Lee was going to hit him, and that's when he threw a punch.

Employees at Tanner's Station told police they didn't overhear any offensive language from Brian Vander Lee, and Sgt. Clifford admitted he could have gone to an employee instead of making a scene.



Oh - I guess he didn't. Sounds like a big bully that almost killed a guy.

I really hope this guy pulls through, such a beautiful family and the friend seems like a real good guy. Hope the Sergeant gets the book thrown at him. What a childish and stupid thing to do, punching someone for talking loudly. Anyone with that short a fuse shouldn't be a cop, shouldn't be around a gun, and definitely should not be leading a SWAT team.

I got the impression from the interview with the friend that there was some offensive language, but that is still no justification. Sometimes being a man means walking away.

Yes, good point.

These kind of things always make me wonder. Like, what happens at his house when is wife is late with dinner or the kids break something? Or, how many times has something like this happened on the job and been covered up?

We'll never know, but it makes you wonder how a guy like that could get to lead the SWAT team and if this was the first time.
