Until proven otherwise, cops are scumbags. The misbehavior of police, as well as the justifications and excuses for it is so remarkably consistent from area to area that it's hard to believe that these are the acts of a few bad apples in a few departments and not a profession wide problem. Abuse of power seems to be a typical part of a police departments daily operations.

I'm beginning to believe that the police are just the largest street gang in the country. Distinct colors, somewhat unique language, others covering up the criminal acts of the rest, etc.  Every time one cop or a GROUP of cops quickly and smoothly (to me, implies it's not new to them) trample on someone's rights, assault them, shoot them, or kill them without cause, we have to hear that there are plenty of good cops and these were just the bad ones.

First, I have a very hard time believing that these are the only bad ones on that force, so that means there are more.

Second, how is it that the bad cops always manage to find each other and end up assigned to the same patrol route, SWAT team, etc. AND all the good cops never seem to "sniff" them out? That is, how come the good cops never seem to detect the bad ones in their ranks? If they are detecting them, they're not doing much about them. I don't know which is worse, ineptness or aiding and abetting.

Third, if the good cops can't detect the bad ones, or cover up for them, what good are they going to do us when we complain about the bad ones? They're either blind to the transgressions, or they're accomplices.

Would we tolerate ANY business if their employees engaged in criminally or ethically abusive acts at the same rate as police officers (Catholic Church notwithstanding)?

lucksi: Oh and no-one is charged with false arrest, assault ect. Right on, you farking oinkers.

Let's outlaw taping the police so that similar proud heroes don't lose their jobs


What kind of idiot would think that's OK to do in the US? (The Illinois law was struck, thankfully.)

It's a step in the right direction.   Kudos for whomever up the chain decided that this was unacceptable.

Remember, if you see a cop, turn on your smartphone video camera.

If they're not doing anything wrong, then they have nothing to be afraid of, right?

"We can't have this type of sloppy conduct - it's a betrayal of the public's right to not know what its police force is doing," Kleine said. "Getting caught like this is a stain on all good persons involved in law enforcement and a strain on their relationships in our community."  Kleine then added that a "good look-around" to scan for potential additional persons recording video would become part of police policy when making these kinds of arrests.

There.  Fixed TFA for ya.

They'll probably quietly be reinstated. That happens a lot too. Or just move to another state and become a cop there.

louiedog: Mr Guy: Sigh, what's that app that automatically streams video to a remote server?  Looks like that needs to be S.O.P.

If you have a good data connection you can use something like Justin.TV, Ustream, and others which will also alert your friends/family via social media when you start streaming and they can watch you get your ass kicked by the cops live. Most of them automatically archive the video for later viewing.

If your connection isn't so good you might want to just record locally to a folder that automatically uploads the video so that it's not just a choppy mess.


Google's Instant Upload works great on my Android phone.

If that cop goes to jail (and I think he deserves it), he is going to be in some serious danger.  Criminals don't like cops much...

It really sucks that this behavior is not the rare exception.

Sucks worse that we rarely ever see justice like this.

I live in Omaha.
 Personally I practice responsible citizenship.Keeping my tags up to date goes hand in hand with being courteous to cops ,kids and little old ladies and are just as important as not stealing music and game downloads or a box of mac and cheese.
That creamy feeling you get in your nether regions just knowing that you're an entitled American with no self control? That's the fruit of the liberal tree ....and it gives the whole nation the shiats.Im not a fan of cops,don't see how they can do their job with 200 million spoilt sprats running the country but when I find myself having to deal with them for whatever reason I do so with basic decency.
 If I get my car towed because I failed to act as a responsible citizen? I reap what I sow and don't throw a tantrum about it.

I'll keep the champagne corked until I hear about them getting cornholed in prison. There's still many opportunities for these goons to escape Justice.

Omaha cops are a real gang of hamfisted thugs, and this is all just theater to keep North Omaha, which is always a powder keg, from going full-blown LA Riots '92.

Its aggrivating because stuff like this happens so often. Theres tons of videos like this out there. Probably happens twice as much when nobody's recording. When you see cops running into danger, like in Boston a few weeks ago, it almost made me forget that most who where blue are just the WORST. I've known quite a few officers, including family over the years, and most are tools. The guys in highschool that were the biggest dicks became cops. Most are bullies, with an overinflated sense of worth. Most, are complete garbage. I seriously would trust the dregs of society, than most of the douches in blue.

The pigs are the most dangerous street gang there is.  Good to see the pigs got what they deserved.  They beat, taze, and plant dope on people daily.. once in a great while, someone gets the abuse on video.

Usually the pigs close ranks and get off totally free.

Unlikely, if you are actually convicted of a crime


So look for them at your local mall as a security guard.
