namegoeshere: The few, rare bad apples, and all the others who lie and cover up for them.


If you're going to use the phrase, use the WHOLE phrase:  One bad apple will spoil the whole barrel.

What this means is that if you allow a single rotten apple in your apple barrel, that rot will quickly spread to the remaining apples, and so it's important to remove it immediately.  If you have one bad cop, you're eventually going to have a whole police force full of bad cops UNLESS YOU REMOVE THE BAD COP IMMEDIATELY.

You only ever read about the few bad apples, never the good cops who put their lives on the line every day to keep you and your family safe.

You never read about the many cops who don't stomp people's heads in.

You never read about the cops who don't shoot half a dozen bystanders.

You never read about the cops who don't kill family pets.

You never hear about the cops who don't take you to a hospital to get a camera stuffed up your colon.

You never hear about the cops who don't plot to murder and eat some chick.

It's only the few, rare bad apples that you hear about


That's because people shouldn't expect a pat on the back for doing the minimum necessary to do their job. If the only think keeping a cop from shooting a half a dozen bystanders is a newspaper article congratulating him, then he shouldn't be a cop.

The answer is a little simpler than you seem to think. It's because the consolidated unions backing Fire and Police unions in the United States hold MASSIVE political sway, and can manipulate public opinion and voter ire pretty easily.

You know, he COULD have been spitting, but Im pretty farking sure that even in florida, spitting at a policeman is not sufficient cause to hit someones head against a tile wall hard enough to leave blood smears.

I mean it might be cause for a charge, or for restraint or even a mask or something, but potentially fatal head injuries are not a recognised method of ensuring compliance anywhere.

dahmers love zombie: Once again, the 95% of cops who are dirty go screwing it up for the 5% who are clean. You'd think someone would come up with some way of fixing this.


How about NOT hiring former jocks and high school bullies into the police department? That's a start.

Also, how about requiring EVERY officer to take a series of psych tests and aggression tests AT RANDOM every other months?

And on top of that, how about a second agency of cops who don't police civilians, but police the civilian police? The cop-cops, if you will. Their ONLY job would be to patrol towns and watch the cops. They would sometimes be assigned to follow the cops EVERYWHERE, and the cops wouldn't be able to do jack-shiat about it. The cop-cops wouldn't have the power to arrest non-police civilians; Only civilian cops would be in their jurisdiction, though they could certainly call the civilian cops and monitor their response time if they witnessed a crime, and they could act if there was an emergency in their presence and no civilian cops were around to help.

The cop-cops would answer to a civilian board of community-elected officials. The cop-cops would wear monitoring devices to monitor THEIR actions and the actions of the cops they police. If their monitoring devices are ever shut off or blocked, the civilian board is instructed to assume that a crime was committed in the absence of video/audio evidence to the contrary, and the cop-cop would be disciplined.

The civilian board would have term limits of 2 years, and could not be re-elected to the board if they ever served on a civilian board overseeing cop-cops in the past, in any county in the USA. The board seats would be open to any civilian aged 18 or older, as long as said civilian does not have a police officer in their immediate family (parents, siblings, step-parents, step-siblings, half-siblings, siblings-in-law, etc.) or have themselves never been in law enforcements in any capacity (cop, security guard, lawyer, judge, etc.)

The cop-cops would have the authority to arrest any police officer on the spot. The monitoring devices would provide evidence admissible in any court of law. The testimony of the cop-cops would be considered more valuable than the testimony of cops (much like a cop's testimony is considered more valid than a civilian's in our current system).

If the regular justice system lets us down (judges and district attorneys letting cops go, for example) then we'd switch to a tribunal system designed especially to mete out justice to police officers. The tribunal would also be an elected committee, and NOBODY with previous law enforcement would be allowed on this committee. The hearings would be jury trials, and the cops and county would have to rely on public defenders to argue the cases. No DA, no high-priced lawyers, no union lawyers. Everyone gets a fair shake and the same level of representation in court.

And if this doesn't work, then we just arm all civilians with ferrets, take crazy pills, and burn it all down.

License police in the same way as we do Doctors, Paramedics, and Contractors.

Appoint a state-level board with no connections to law enforcement to perform police oversight and control those licenses. And require that licensure to work as a police officer.

The taxpayer is going to have to pick up the tab for cops like this....why not let he taxpayer pick up the tab in creative ways that hurts the cops and serves as a deterrent to other cops.


My solution has always been to require cops to obtain private insurance for such incidents.  Eventually the bad cops will be uninsurable and therefore unemployable as a sworn officer.

In all seriousness, I've been told that dealing daily with the trash end of humanity does burn them out quickly.

Then again, social workers also have to deal with the same people daily, and yet social workers don't get to commit repeated assaults and have their co-workers lie on their behalf and get administrative leave with pay.

Good. Now charge the ass hole with 50 counts of attempted manslaughter and give the cop a medal.
 
2013-12-11 11:01:37 PM
The thing that amazes me most is that he actually got charged with anything for bashing the drunks head into a wall. Its exceedingly rare for a cop to get charged for something done while on duty, especially for relatively minor things like this.

This cop deserves a public death in my opinion, but at least it appears they are doing something other than giving him a paid vacation which is a start.

Where I live (sonoma county, ca) they just reinstated the cop who shot a 12yo multiple times in the back. He had 6 weeks of paid vacation as a punishment, with the chief saying that his officer went by the book and did nothing wrong when he shot the 12 year old from behind with no warning. In response to the protests and marches agaisnt the cops and city hall, the cops have brought out the swat gear and tear gas.


I have said it many times before.
PEACEFUL PROTESTS DO NOT WORK. Violence is the only answer. Cops that break the rules need to die. Painfully.
