Anyone part of the good ol' boy system gets off lightly. Everyone knows that.
But there are those who go against the good ol' boy system that gets F'd over. That cop last year, the one who went on a killing spree, he got burned to death in his cabin. At that time, he was truly no threat to anyone but himself.
We all can give stories and situations all day long. It won't fix the true underlying problem.

What? Still no examples?
Lol be on your way to help out the next skumbag
One of many that you and some others are attempting to use but failing because you refuse to use the crimes they were charged with. You don't seem to understand you have to use the charges and not your personal opinion. The sooner you comprehend that.....
The grab incident was one of MANY cases.
* - Please provde a link to the source so I know what you are referencing. If its the incident where 6 Milwaukee officers were performing illegal body cavity searches then, again, you are wrong and misrepresenting facts. Those officers have been charged with performing illegal body cavity searches.
Explain the Wisconsin trooper who despite raping and sexually assault dozens for over 5 years (while the whole dept knew) was only given 2 years and not put on the sex offenders list because they charged him minimally?
Or Kelly Thomas's being beat to death while he screamed for his daddy. He wasnt recognizable as a human after that. Those cops got off Scott free.
* - In June 2012 Michael Reeves, a former employee of the Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen, filed a lawsuit for wrongful termination against Jeremy Popoff related to the beating. The Slidebar, which is owned by Popoff, the guitarist for Lit, was the source of the call that caused police to report to the area and confront Thomas. Reeves, a bouncer at the establishment, made statements to investigators claiming the Slidebar had a policy to do "anything necessary" to keep loiterers out of the area and that his manager lied about Thomas breaking into cars when calling the police to get them to respond more quickly. He further claims that Thomas was only loitering in the area that night and not causing trouble. Soon after making statements to investigators about what he saw that night he claims his managers were "furious at him for it" and slowly started taking away his responsibilities, culminating with his firing two months later. Reeves also claims that Popoff wanted everyone working at the Slidebar to act as if the "Slidebar had nothing to do" with the beating of Thomas and his refusal to echo these statements is the chief reason why he was fired.
* - Already answered but you apparently didn't bother to read the post.
Or the fact that grants killer is already out of jail after less than 2 years.
* - You should read the facts instead of using your opinon. She was involved in a 30 minute pursuit, attempted to breach the White House checkpoint, and when officers swarmed the car, she attempted to move the vehicle. An officer discharged his weapon due to the imminent threat to the public / officers in the immediate vicinity.
Or the d.c. police murdering that mother after she accidentally passed an unguarded checkpoint and was hunted down after trying to leave.
Please provide a link or name of the person involved so I can find the story you are referencing.
Or the officer that shot the burned victim. He was burned head to toe and in shock. The officer shot him because he was afraid the man would touch him with his burned flesh.
Or thw officers that killed the two car crash victims seeking help?
“Our investigation has shown that officer Kerrick did not have a lawful right to discharge his weapon during this encounter,” a police statement reads. Kerrick has been charged with the voluntary manslaughter of the unarmed man. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Chief Rodney Monroe has apologized to the victim's family for the policeman's actions.
* - Once again you failed to read / understand.
The officers who saw a kid in a field, walking by himself with an airsoft rifle and shot him dead.
The officer that killed the deaf woods who had a carving knife.
GogoVicMorrowI could literally list forever.
If any went to jail (2 in that list) they sont around a quarter or less of a civilians sentence and didnt lose half as much.
Good on you for at least admitting that cops get off lighter
@ the two apologists
If children are different the please go to my link

Socal cop get 3 years for sexually assaulting 14 year olD
Glendale police arrested a man Wednesday after allegations surfaced that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl on the Hoover High School campus in Glendale. Delvon Jackson, an instructor for a public safety class offered as part of L.A. County’s Regional Occupational Program, is being held on two counts of sexual assault on a minor, according to a Glendale Police Department press release.
Jackson allegedly led people to believe he was a former Inglewood police officer, police said. Jackson was once a part-time parking control employee for the City of Inglewood, but he was never a police officer for Inglewood or any other police agency, according to police.
I don't because I am not wrong. However keep providing the examples as they don't support your claims and only undermine your position.
See how your just wrong yet?
First it's huge sentence because its a child
Until that child is assaulted by an officer
Then its business as usual
Cop 3 years vs coach life
During Monday's proceedings, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Frederick Rotenberg reduced Jackson’s bail from $1 million to $400,000, the amount recommended by prosecutors.
If Jackson is convicted of the lewd-acts charges, he could be sentenced to up to five years in state prison.
Time to move those goal posts again

Of course not.. because they don't.
Citizens lose their whole lives after a crime, cops get paid vacations.

Really.. it's not reported? You don't think a cop getting a severe (and equal) punishment wouldn't be big news.
Hell, it's big news when they get the rinky dink sentences they do (rarely) get.
Remember that serial killer cop that tied the two girls up in the woods and they got out and he confessed to his sergeant that he did a bad thing? I still think it was a while before anyone caught on he was a serial killer.
Haha so what. A lot more cops shooting citizens dead than cops getting killed.
1. of the nature of hypocrisy, or pretense of having virtues, beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually possess: The parent who has a “do what I say and not what I do” attitude can appear hypocritical to a child.
2. possessing the characteristics of hypocrisy: Isn't a politician hypocritical for talking about human dignity while voting against reasonable social programs?
Remember the undercover cop that pulled a gun on a guy on a motorcycle not knowing the guy was wearing a camera on his helmet.

You think cops are on edge, trust me, civilians are equally on edge when they see those lights behind them and they have more of a reason to be.
What's more likely at a stop the cop getting shot, or the one being pulled over? (rhetorical again).
