IMO some of the videos of cop beat downs and continued beating or tasering until death is totally unacceptable.

Some, some? Cops killing a person by beating or tazer while being taken in custody is OK?

Not sure why your link won't work for me.

But, I have been wondering for a while now, what the heck happened to the psych exam officers are suppose to go through, to become police officers? I was told by a family member, many years ago, that it was pretty extensive.
How are all these nut jobs getting though to become police officers?

tptb are sifting society for the most brutish and bestial members and packing the enforcement class with these elements

those psych-evals are gone

Another important issue that has been largely kept out of the media, has been the pressure brought to bear on local police departments, by the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department to abandon "cognitive" entrance exams for police applicants. Cities that do not drop cognitive exams are often sued by the US Justice Department, under the pretense of "racial diversity." Cognitive entrance exams were based on intelligence and reasoning abilities, which tested one's reading and writing skills. Today, many police applicants only have to scored about as well as the bottom one percent of what police applicants had to score 20 years ago to pass. Now you'll know why that policeman who gave you a ticket seemed as dense as a box of rocks.

when i hear those "good" officers scream from the rooftops that things are wrong..
when the "good" cops actually do something other than stand around and look at their feet whilst their brothers kick the sh$t out of people for nothing, or outright kill them..
i might start rebuilding faith..right now i have NONE..ZIP..NADA

That is crazy!
Wouldn't you want someone with a higher intelligence? Wouldn't they be more apt to think something through before acting? Think about consequences?

Or maybe it would be the case of "book smart and no common sense?"

the thing is they want unthinking unfeeling robots that do what they are told and follow procedures without critical thinking or reasoning
i so fondly remember defcon5s feeling on the toronto streetcar police homocide.."he was within 20' so they were allowed to shoot him"(not an exact quote) speaks for note the officer in the toronto murder has been charged with 2nd degree murder(rare thing due to civillian oversight) sure seems to be the way things are going i dont know how anyone could argue otherwise

All my addition was, what all the punishment possibilities are for class A misdemeanor in the state of Texas. And I know this from a personal experiance (I was young and dumb.) while not exactly a punishment that fits the crime (for me - overkill, for the officer(s) - insufficient) most punishment doesn't fit the crime.
If a cop sees this sort of action without doing something to stop it, they should be charged with the crime "failure to render aid" which is now (as of last month) a felony. Now before you tell me it's part of the transportation code, it seems that it should and could apply to any situation where emergency medical care is needed. And, after having your head and chest kicked in by a booted individual, seems like it would result in injury requiring medical attention (first aid.)
The problem I have is the "don't rat" mentality our society has. " if your like us, we'll keep our mouths shut, in order to keep the prying eyes off of what we may be doing" I feel if you see someone doing wrong you should be able to do something about it, without repercussion

Apparently this incident happened two years ago in Sept. 2011.

Houston Chronicle

A former Harris County deputy constable has been charged with official oppression in a 2011 incident where a man said he was held down and kicked, authorities said.

Jimmy Drummond, formerly with Harris County Precinct 4, was not in custody late Monday, authorities said. Drummond is accused of taking part in the arrest of David Scherz Jr., 26, on Sept. 10, 2011.

A dash-cam video from one of the patrol cars at the scene shows Scherz being held to the ground. A constable identified as Drummond could be seen on the video kicking him several times in the rib.

My guess is this has come to light because the officer has been officially charged with oppression. Didn't realize it would take Internal Affairs quite this long to come to that conclusion.

You are absolutely right. Many cops on the video performed within standard operating procedure. The only thing they didn't do by the book was to shoot the obviously vicious dog. The fat piglet who just before used his advantage in weight by sitting on one of the guys makes sure to kick the dog thought.

The full vid:


My favourite part:

All charges against the five family members were dropped last year by Harris County prosecutors, who determined there was no probable cause for their arrests.

Scherz was not given a traffic citation but instead charged with criminal mischief for denting the hood of a deputy’s vehicle. Scherz said he was trying to take shoes to his mother, who was being dragged by officers to a patrol car.

I suspect the use of steroids and maybe a few other legal drugs.

My son tested for the State Patrol in Oregon and did not make the cut. He seemed to think as do I that men are using steroids to get past the physical aspects of the testing. Continued use of any drug, mood altering of physical enhancement drugs could lead to this type of behavior.

There are certain places in the Houston area these men won't go and try doing that.

There must be a malfunction in their brain, since there are so many stories about police brutality, is there something in their food or water?

Those good officers are saying things, they are "speaking" up, what it comes down to is 1) are you really listening?
2) even saying things the administration is very powerful and works with media to actively silence them.
You can say all you want but when no one hears you, it matters not...
