Husky, why don't you expend half the effort looking for the good that police officers do instead of focussing on every bad incident you can come up with?

I read the story about that. Apparently the cop and the victim had some sort of history between them. I do not know the details. The cops partner should be terminated and up on charges as well in my opinion. If.your a cop your loalyalty is to the law first, your partner second. He should not have stood by as his partner beat the man up.

Husky gets a bonner every time he reads a story like this.

quote from link:


"Lakoff continues in his book:
Consider what all this means for social programs: It is immoral to give people things they have not earned, because then they will not develop discipline and will become both dependent and immoral. This theory says that social programs are immoral because they make people dependent. Promoting social programs is immoral. And what does this say about budgets? Well, if there are a lot of progressives in Congress who think that there should be social programs, and if you believe that social programs are immoral, how do you stop these immoral people?"

So.....there is no doubt that more than a few cops get their rocks off committing violence. But here's the REAL kicker: YOUR taxes pay THEIR salaries which means YOU support their violence and are an accomplice to each and every act of VIOLENCE they commit 'in the name of the law.'


After thinking about this for awhile, some of you will lose sleep indicating you have a moral compass/conscience and some of you will continue to sleep like babies......

The police department fired the cop or forced his resignation. That is a significant part of the story you don't mention.

So, are we saying their vetting process involves hiring 100 bad apples, then when they screw up fire the bad ones and hope and pray a few good apples are left?

I guesss you don't get it; cops get off committing violence, it is in their DNA. Check out this story; the man simply wanted to save his horses from injury but NO, we can't allow him to do that can we?

Quote from story, remember this is what the cops are REALLY ABOUT:

"Three officers piled onto Jack, Melissa wrote, held his head back and began to beat him."

Our right to enforce the law is more important than your right to protect your horses from harm. We are the boss, you are a zero. Never forget it.
