It's strange that all the cops in the article likely committed more felonies than the people they arrested for petty bullshit, makes zero sense. Why hire these idiots that can barely do police work.

You don't get it. This is "police work". They are seasoned veterans.

Millions of dollars of tax payer training and this is what we get. "Oh we need better training and new fancy training facilities."

No you need to completely revamp what it is to be the police and stop hiring overly aggressive morons.

They need accountability for their actions.

Why should your barber or stylist be required to have education and certification by state boards who can suspend or revoke their license so they never work in the field again if they misbehave or hurt someone - they only use scissors & chemicals on your hair or face.

Cops use chemicals, cuffs & guns, and they are allowed to steal, rape, kill with immunity, plant evidence, false statements from professional witnesses, send innocent poeple to prison all while being paid taxpayer monies. This is how your city council spends your tax dollars. Cops are acting like gangs who wear uniforms & work for the city/state.

If cops wanna be trusted & respected they need to prove they are worthy with same pre-employment screens as a security clearance, national registration, state certification, and accountability when they screw up. Those that lead or watch over need to be the best of the crop.

And I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I Wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and Guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill, KILL, KILL." And I started jumpin up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL, " and He started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping up and down Yelling, "KILL, KILL." And the sargent came over, pinned a medal on me, Sent me down the hall, said, "You're our boy."

Not just that, but also by a wider social/political culture. Politicians and higher-up regulators didn't give a shit about this stuff until ordinary people started rioting and burning down police stations. Its not like political elites or higher-up legal figures really tried to resist the police unions in previous times. They're all part of the same package.


WildYams t1_jbijqv3 wrote

Exactly. If these cops were decent, qualified people before they were hired, then the police just trained all that right out of them and made them into dangerous criminals who brutalize, kill and steal. Most police departments are there to oppress minorities and poor people so as to keep the wealthy protected from the masses.

Here's video of their crimes.

All you have to do is see how much attention and support things like the "war" on drugs had, or the "war" on terrorism. Suddenly police get massive amounts of tools, funding and support. Bills/laws are put on the fast-track to being passed, rights are bypassed, etc. They have no problem confronting issues if they actually want to fix them or care. If nothing's being done, it's generally not because it's physically difficult or impossible, it's more of a conscious decision to not deal with or fix the issue. Especially when it's state employees/organizations who are causing the problem.

I couldn't get to the end of that video. No wonder people aren't rehabilitated back to a human state. It's because this system and it's players treats them like absolute SHIT! They don't treat these people as humans. This display is sickening and just shows these ego driven pussies getting off on beating the hell out of people who have zero chance of defending themselves successfully and they count those punches and kicks like notches on a belt. It must suck to be so mad at the world cuz high school wasn't good to you or cuz that's what your daddy did. Some legacy

Jesus. They're all bad but the worst one in my opinion was the officer who struck a suspect with his car. Radios in that the suspect struck his car (which should be reversed, the officer struck the suspect), bleeding from the head, and they're telling him to stop resisting, tasering him. Like wtf?


FunWelcome t1_jbisok3 wrote

I saw a movie about a corrupt cop once and the guy(the cop) said you didn't catch him beating a suspect. You caught him doing his job.


cthom412 t1_jbk5lhr wrote

Exactly. I try not to be an asshole with people learning new things but this is a topic where it’s really tough for me. I’m 29 and entire communities of people have been talking about how corrupt American police are since well before I was born.

I feel like if you didn’t figure this shit out back when Ferguson happened at the latest that you’re part of the problem with this country. It baffles me how people older than me can still be shocked on a regular basis at cops being cops.

And yet people still want to further militarize these literal law- and union-backed gangs. Keep an eye on Atlanta.

Just remember, all prison are for profit prisons.

The profits are just indirect to the businesses that indirectly support the prison itself.

They ARE doing police work. FELONIES in a porcine costume. Ever come across a PIG that wasn't a criminal in some way? I haven't.

This is what policing is and always has been. You’re just hearing about it now.

I can imagine in certain communities they would find it interesting most of America is finding this out now, years of tv-copganda don't help.

I know 5 people who became COs in their late 20s. 1 is a really decent guy. The other 4 belong on the other side of the bars, but they happened to never get caught doing their illegal bullshit (drug dealing, robbery, assault).

Edit: I should specify that the illegal bullshit (that I know about) happened prior to becoming COs.


RKU69 t1_jbjijdc wrote

If that's the case, I really doubt that the one decent guy you knew is still a decent guy if he's still a CO.


Ok_Ninja_1602 t1_jbkz9u4 wrote

COs are particularly scummy especially those that work in women's prisons and with youth offenders.

>Why hire these idiots that can barely do police work.

Because that's what they're hired for. Police aren't meant to protect people or actually solve crimes, otherwise the government would be as concerned with these current problems as they were of "terrorism" or the "war" on drugs. If the government or people in charge are actually motivated or care about something, a lot can be done and has been done with previous issues. If nothing's being done, that tells me that it's simply not a problem they want to handle/fix.
