I heard from some veterans from the first Gulf war that, chem-lights aka "glow sticks" for you club rats, terrified the Iraqi army POW's. They had never seen them before.

I stay as far from both crooks and cops as possible.

It seems that the less either can actually accomplish, the more violent they are likely to become.

The only thing more belligerent than a crook is a cop. Both are armed and dangerous.

I was going to say how did it turn into a physical confrontation, if they tell you that you can't bring something into a venue then you probably don't need to flip the f*ck out over it. Then I saw that the FBI is investigating these guys, so there ya go.

"It costs $300 to file a lawsuit," FOP attorney Ronald Cohen said. "But it takes evidence to prove it. We look forward to complete vindication for these fine officers."

Dauphin and James, who are both free while awaiting sentencing, could not be reached for comment. The city of Miami, also a defendant in the civil suit, declined to comment in an email.

See, that would require one of the cops to step over The Blue Line.

The fact is, you would be hard pressed to not find a major police organization that doesn't have corruption.  Unfortunately, because the criminals tend to not play by the rules, sometimes corrupt cops are a necessary evil.  They get shiat done where honest cops can't.

But that doesn't mean they shouldn't be held accountable for their corruption when wielded ineffectively.

So THAT'S why Philly cops were shaking down Korean grocery stores here.  With the mob gone, there's no one else left to shake them down.  And no honest cop would ever shake down a Korean grocery store.

Makes perfect sense.

They spend too long looking into the abyss, they become the abyss.

We have a runaway system here. It's no longer just the Legislative, Executive or Judicial Branches that are corrupted, and balanced out by the powers of the other branches. The entire system has become self-serving by design, and enamored with its delusion that they are "The People". They are not. WE are "The People." Government has taken the arrogant attitude that anything that is good for it, (or its minions,) is by default, good for the country as a whole. Hence, we are saddled with a government that has assumed the "right" to spend the tax money of future generations. We have Debt Ceiling "emergencies" which amount to having to borrow money merely to pay the interest on the money they've already rationalized their throwing around like drunken sailors on shore-leave.  We have systemic corruption that results in government-for-money. Profit-by-confiscation, with no recourse for the victim of the system. Cops that open fire on innocent motorists without the slightest provocation, without even the tiniest shred of justification. The fact that there is a "Thin Blue Line" is the greatest proof that those who we depend upon to "Protect and Serve" have become little more than armed gangs their selves, with the major perk of their terroristic actions being shielded by the very system which claims to be "at war' with terrorism.

Blue has become the most ubiquitous "gang color."

Oh, yeah, those corrupt cops sure are getting things done.  Things like providing protection for sports-betting rings, and brutalizing innocent civilians.  I can sure understand why you'd want to keep them around.

None of you get it.  Large criminal organizations are usually too smart to make the mistakes necessary to allow honest cops to enforce the law.  They speak in code, they disguise shipments of contraban as legal and legitimate product.  They have their own intelligence teams, and they consult lawyers who know the loopholes in laws to protect their illegal activites from legal enforcement.  If the police adhered to letter of the law 100% of the time, the Italian Mafia would still be running Unions and Las Vegas, and probably a whole bunch of other shiat I don't want to imagine about.  Warrantless searches are almost always a form of corruption.  Then again, you don't hear anybody crying about it when they find millions of dollars in illegal guns or drugs because a cop 'smelled weed' or 'heard gunshots' outside a warehouse.

Shooting up random cars or selective unconstitutional searches of people walking down the street is not what I'm talking about as necessary corruption.  Being pulled over for DWB isn't necessary corruption.  Pounding someone into the dirt for bringing a glowstick to a concert isn't necessary corruption.  And it won't end until there is 3rd party community oversight over every major police department in the US, where ordinary citizens can determine if the ends truly justify the means.

No, I "get it". We've traded the Italian Mafia for the "Blue Light Special" mafia. The government and its agents have ignored the ethics of "conflict of interest", and reward their selves with the very substantial perk of immunity of the very laws they seek to impose upon us "lesser beings".
