I think the biggest problem with US police is that too many of them are trigger happy, it's like giving a gun to a chimp.
These idiots are so eager to shoot, they'll find an excuse to kill, just for the thrill of having shot something. This is what happens when you put a
thug in uniform and give them a gun and some power.
It's always shocking to me how untrained these idiots seem to be. Using a gun should be a LAST RESORT in every instance, but so many cops in the US
pull out their gun before they do anything else.
It's out of control, and I agree that Anonymous is an expected result of that unrestrained insanity. This is what happens when people in positions of
power and trust abuse those positions, and are then never held accountable for their abuses, you end up with vigilantes working to fight back against
If corrupt, violent and dangerous cops were actually held to account for their actions, instead of let off or defended by their equally corrupt and
violent bosses, then there would be no need for a vigilante group to create justice.
Police are supposed to be acting by the permission of the public. When an officer loses that trust, there cannot be any place for them in law
enforcement. That's what it comes down to, people have spoken and they do not want men like that in their police force. If he remains, trust will be
further eroded and there will be more animosity and distrust from thousands more citizens.
If Hawthorne police knows what's good for them, they'll suspend and then fire this officer. If they don't, thousands more within that community
will feel more distrust and animosity and the work of the police and their relationship with the community will slide even further.
Any senior officer who tries to defend this cop and his actions will immediately lose faith and trust from the people they are supposed to be serving.
