I was actually implying that instead of becoming a cop, they become a doctor. Not turn all cops into doctors.
That would be silly.
So,are you saying that there are no corrupt doctors?Are you saying that doctors never do anything to violate anyone or act contrary to the Hippocratic
I would like to note that there are corrupt and abusive people in pretty much all walks of life and professions.I am not defending these officers
actions,as I think it's despicable,but to just arbitrarily make a blanket statement that ALL or MOST officers of the law are scum and corrupt is a
It is undeniable that there are power hungry cops in the world.But there are power hungry people in many professions that take advantage of their
positions and treat their subordinates like crap.I live in NC and was a nurse back in the 90's and I worked (among other places) at two of the best
and well known hospitals in the country
uke Hospital and UNC Hospital at Chapel Hill.There were good and bad physicians and nurses that I encountered
during my nursing career.
Just like there are good and bad teachers,clergy and many others in professions that take advantage of their position and status.And the same goes for
parents and children/teens.I have definitely run into some teens that needed an attitude adjustment and a lesson on how to be respectful--some can be
real a-holes and need a rude awakening.But I hesitate to lump an entire group of people together because there are good and bad people in the world
My take on this particular incident is that no matter what things this guy had that he neglected to show up for,it sounded like they were fairly minor
in the scheme of things and if he's just riding a skateboard down the road even if he DID take off how does that give anyone the right to use
excessive force and beat someone?What they stopped him for was not a violent offense,he was not dealing drugs,attempting murder,armed robbery or rape
or involved in any other kind of nefarious activity,I heard and saw nothing in video or article that mentioned him being armed,so I see absolutely no
justification in any of this.
I also concur with everyone else who said that in the LA area where this took place there most CERTAINLY had to be more important things to focus
their energies on that were far above and beyond this issue....but no--lets go after this guy instead and leave the rest of the violent and despicable
reprobates alone and to their own devices
