i agree with what you say that there are good police officers,
the problem is that this man was not arrested which speaks
to a true problem in the system, the refusal to treat those bad
officers as the criminals they are. in this case the other officer
chose to ignore the law and allow a person to violently threaten
another person right in front of him.
the question must be asked as well, should he be free from prosecution?
he did not lift a hand to stop it even tho in the video he seems slightly shaken
by it and so one could say he knew it was wrong. speculation
of course but even so he should have arrested him, plain and
simple, by brushing this off so easily this has become ok
and it simply is not ok. a criminal can wear a badge
just as a police officer in times of need can pretend
to be a criminal..... both once unmasked for who they are
should be treated as such.
