    :stupid:
    I'd have to go back and re-read everything but I don't recall anyone saying "fvck all cops" or anything along those lines. People have questioned an officer’s action in specific scenarios, not cast general aspersions on the public service community the way some here have reacted. The implication that somehow a public servant is supposed to be beyond criticism if something untoward happens is however, ridiculous. Were all subject to judgment if we perform our jobs poorly, and we should be, even if you are just some poor, less than human, hollow shell, of an office drone. If you happen to have a job where failures are aired publicly, well that sucks, but chances are pretty good you knew that going in so I’m not so sympathetic. For instance, failure at my work is highly public:


    and generally speaking, the general public and media have absolutely zero fvcking clue what they are talking about. I don't however, typically, get my panties all in a wad about it. It seems to me to speak to a greater issue if someone has to be so defensive.

    srsly? you don't transliterate 'Eff da po-lice some more' to be just that?
    failure @ my work means i hit ctrl-B, ctrl-F11 (in debug mode)

    sometimes i fart too hard & poop my pants, which co-workers can smell.

    When I'm on the :monkey:? No. Any thread on here that has the word "cop" somewhere in it typically has that tag. I've never read it as anymore as a jokey reference to NWA. But then maybe I'm not out looking for a reason to offended.

    I stand by whatever I've said.

    early on manimal even said that "we" expect "white collar results with blue collar hiring standards".

    Which to me implies that by and large, there aren't too many beat cops wandering out there saying, "yeah....I thought about completing my PhD in Quantum Mechanics....but I figured I'd be a cop instead"

    I have tried (honestly) to see both sides of this. But I just can't. I cannot see how the cops who did this are not begging for forgiveness. It's all well and good to **** up. Even **** up royally. But they are sticking to their story. And they hauled him in, even after learning about his condition. (You read about the heart condition as well as the autism right? Tasers are great for that too).

    They protected and served no-one.


    And a propos of nothing, one year in CEGEP (which is like junior college after high school before you go to real university...school system is different here)

    Anyhoo, I had the misfortune of having my locker located adjacent to the "Police Tech" dept. And let me tell you.....the mouth breathing troglodites that program attracted, more than likely had a lot to do with my disdain for law enforcement.

    Mike,

    I'm not trying to defend what happened here or cops in general.

    The Diallo shooting happened 2 miles from my parent's house. Oscar Grant was shot at a station I use.

    But you really went off on cops in general, and I'm not into that.

    I stand by what I said as well.

    Well the video has never been a cop, so it can't possibly understand the complex pressures involved in the situation.

    They were known as Miller’s Boys, police officers who worked the 4-to-midnight shift, patrolling the largely working-class town of East Haven, Conn., including the small but growing Hispanic community that has spread out in recent years from New Haven.

    The officers were more than well known in that community; according to residents and federal authorities, they were feared. They stopped and detained people, particularly immigrants, without reason, federal prosecutors said, sometimes slapping, hitting or kicking them when they were handcuffed, and once smashing a man’s head into a wall. They followed and arrested residents, including a local priest, who tried to document their behavior.

    They rooted through stores looking for damning security videotapes of how they had treated some of their targets, described by one of them on a police radio as having “drifted to this country on rafts made of chicken wings.”

    And after it became known that the Justice Department was investigating the department, according to an indictment unsealed on Tuesday, a picture of a rat appeared on a police union bulletin board, and in the locker room, an ominous note: “You know what we do with snitches?”

    On Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested Sgt. John Miller and three of his officers — David Cari, Dennis Spaulding and Jason Zullo — on charges of conspiracy, false arrest, excessive force and obstruction of justice over what the indictment described as years of mistreatment of individuals, especially Hispanics, and efforts to cover it up.

    Following on the heels of a scathing Justice Department report in December that found the East Haven police had engaged in widespread “biased policing, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and the use of excessive force,” the indictment portrayed a harrowing picture of arbitrary justice for Hispanic residents.

    This is how you do it, smash down the blue wall of corruption... When officers punish fellow officers for whistle blowing, punish the punishers, and punish the cops who could have done something but didn't. Good job Canadia :thumb:

    Front Range, dude...
    Manyyears ago, when I was a "beat Cop" I responded to a call of a kid loitering on a street corner. On arrival I made contact with the kid, who was 15 or 16, skinny as a rail, and covered in gang tatts. Crip or Blood out of LA...I dont remember which, but that doesnt matter. He had been thrown out of LA by his Mom, who feared for his life, and sent to live with his sister in the Chicago suburbs. I had him in custody for about 2 hours waiting on sis to come pick him up. In talking to him he showed a very high level of intelligence and was generally a nice kid. Eventually I asked him what attracted him to gangs...he said the usual "All my friends..." Then he says "We are just like you...you wear uniforms, we wear uniforms, you have special language, we have special language. You have ranks, we have ranks...etc etc"
    Hmmm...still ruminate on that one from time to time. Smart kid, wonder what happened to him...

    Gangs shoot rats, cops shoot rats?

    Didn't Manimal have a story about a domestic call at a cops house who tried to flash a badge when they came to the door?

    I have a real issue when cops cover up for others or expect fellow cops to cover up their own bad behavior.

    Yes, he was DEA or Marshall...one of the fed agencies. Tried to badge me and tell me that he had the situation handled. I ended up having to hook him up and take his weapons. I wasn't very happy with him for doing that.
    There is a "Trust Betrayed" section on the BP intranet site that displays the photo and crime synopsis of every agent who has betrayed the public trust. It has former agents who have done everything from smuggling to misuse of government credit cards on there. It's a solemn reminder of how the few can make the many look bad.

    Edit: I was going through an old hard drive and found this video from a few years back when I was working in the projects, thought it was somewhat fitting ;)
