First off, this ex-cop is scum, 2nd like someone else mentioned SoCal has nothing whatsoever to do with gangs, SoCal has been used for decades (SoCal
Speed shops, etc.)
3rd there are a lot of good police out there putting their life on the line daily that are worthy of praise.
My son is a Deputy and he and his fellow officers are always appalled by stuff (like these officers) were involved in.
My son said, they have a rule even when a perp is out of control is to try to calm them and never use blunt force unless their life is in danger, they
are even told refrain from taser use unless necessary as these are dangerous. Also, use only the amount of restraint necessary and treat them well,
even the killers, always call them "sir" or "mam" and if they are large, put 2 cuffs on them (chained together to make them longer) before
placing them in the car.
If a perp says they are claustrophobic, call for the Suburban (with more room in it) don't stick them in the small back seat!
It is hard for the police sometimes, here in south Phoenix a few years ago some gang members made a fake call to get a patrol car to come into a bad
area (an area the police know is dangerous but they went without backup as they thought someone's life was in danger) these gang scum ambushed the
patrol car and killed 2 police officers (both had wives and small children) for no reason other than to kill them! What a sad funeral with the
officers children crying!
Bottom line, don't judge all police officers by this incident, like the Sheriff told the deputies, these cops were thinking they were the judge, jury
and executioners and wearing a badge, working for the public gives you none of those occupations!
Thank God for the good police officers out there, especially those that turn in their own partners if excessive force is used!
(which happened several times here). My son had to arrest and book an off-duty officer that got drunk and beat his wife, he said as he was posing for
mug shots he was crying as he knew his career was over! He told my son he would never be able to work in law enforcement again so my son said "You
should have thought of that before!" The other officer that was there said "Some bad decisions were made, mainly your wife marrying you!"
