"OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma jury Tuesday convicted a veteran police captain of first-degree manslaughter in the death of an unarmed teenager
who was running away after scuffling with the officer.
Yes, this is great news. I hope cops across see this and think "Holy crap, I gotta start actually doing my job instead of acting like Hitler!" ~ I'm
just saying, you know, that it seems that most cops seem to have this "I'm better than you, and I am above the law" attitude.
The videos are out there, and they show just how ignorant some cops can sometimes be.
In the old days of ATS, I remember that when you post news, you had to write a certain amount of words that describe your thoughts and feelings
regarding the news event, and I find that to be an excellent concept. My thought regarding this story are simple. Despite the fact that these
officers are human, I believe the citizens need to be aware of the afflictions that police officers must endure.
Then Again. . . .
Quite simply, if it should make sense that if soldiers endure the horrible effects of PTSD, then why should I not consider that any given officer
might be subject to the same fate as a result of the many horrible things that they have endured. Since it is a job, his or her tour of duty might
last for 20 to 30 years. So, given that concept, perhaps I may be jumping to conclusions by calling them idiot for losing control. . .that, for all I
know, they may no longer have.
