The video, no. The topic, yes. It's been discussed to death recently and it's getting sickening.
Were these officers profiling and or just harrassing these people?
Neither. They were doing their jobs. Stop using keywords like profiling that the media throws at you everyday and learn to think for yourself. The
only profiling and harrassing I'm seeing is people here who are like the man who killed the officer. He was seen on tape harassing the officer
he was shooting him, and the main reason he was shooting him was becasue he profiled the officer as being "evil" somehow. Much like
what you're doing by posing the types of questions you are.
You're trying to come across as unbiased about this whole thing, but your agenda is clear. I'm saying this because you REALLY can't be that naive.
I don't know who's paying you to circulate this garbage, but they're not getting their money's worth.
If so, do you think this is why the officer was killed?
The officer was killed because the shooter was like so many other people on this board who thinks police officers should only do their jobs within the
parameters that we set. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. I know what you're thinking too; "Well it should work that way because our tax dollars pay
their salaries." On that level you're right. But I think that every person in America should do a ride along with officers for one month before they
even attempt to pass judgement on them doing a job that most people here wouldn't have the stomach for.
In the article it says these people were pulled over for suspect of driving without insurance.
Does anyone believe this should be just cause for a stop?
As if the above questions weren't bad enough, you have to throw this into it all to really
show off your lack of understanding of how things
work in the real world. Every law enforcement agency in the country has the capabilities of running a vehicles plates to see whether that vehicle is
insured or not. The only reason the article stated that the driver was suspected of it was because that part of all this wasn't run through the legal
system for a judge to determine. "Due process" ( More media driven keywords) wasn't served. Which is redundant when you realize that the computer
system already did it 30 seconds after the plate was ran. Sorry, but due process WAS served.
I wonder what this officers previous record would say about him, complaints, Etc.
And I wonder how long the killers rap sheet is because a person who is capable of doing something like that, you really have to question what kind of
person they really are. That's the side of the fence I'm on. The side that is going to question John Q Public before I question an officer. The
side that doesn't believe it's necessary to want officers to uphold a "higher standard", whatever the hell that is, ( Again, OP, stop repeating
keywords like that, pretending you know what you're talking about.) because they have to deal with scum like that everyday.
When I was in the Army we had a drill seargant who told us all that he wasn't going to ask us to do something, he wasn't going to hold us to
standards, that he can't physically do himself. He was twice our age, we had to go through VERY rigorous training for 12 weeks and he kept pace with
it all like a young buck.
I don't see anyone here doing that. I don't see anyone here who could deal with the public at it's worse, day in and day out, AND listen to the
kind of garbage that's circulating the country right now, and not snap.
You people are amazing.
