You lack proper historical education.

Cops have ALWAYS been like this. In fact, they were much nicer to this guy than they would have been in the 30s when they'd just gun his ass down in his car and call it a victory.

Don't think the Department will be footing any of the lawsuit settlement, the taxpayers of Seabrook may experience a rise in their property tax assessments though.

It's a catch-22, though. If they aren't put on paid administrative leave while under investigation, then every BS abuse report that gets filed - and yes, there are many false abuse claims made against cops - would drive good cops out of the profession. I feel bad cops should be held to account for their abuses, absolutely, but taking away paid administrative leave during these investigations won't solve the problem. Putting the bad cops in jail when they break the law would, though.

There should be mandatory badge cameras on all cops and any video footage that is "lost" during an arrest results in the nullification of all charges.

This will protect the good cops from false accusations and prevent the bad cops from getting away with their abuse. In this day and age there is absolutely no reason this technology can not be made available and affordable. If I was a cop I'd carry my own camera just to cover my own ass. But then again, I'm not a raging psychopath either.

A good explanation of the logic/legal reasoning behind paid leave http://www.reddit.com/r/ProtectAndServe/comments/1s01lr/most_common_m y th/cdslvma
Paid leave isn't the punishment, its taking them off the street while the investigation is happening. Also there is an issue of special Miranda issues dealing with police.
Read the link its eye opening.

There are; I know lots. But the bad ones are the visible ones, and so, there goes the reputation. Interesting that this seems to go at the same p[ace as worse and worse officers in the US military, too. http://www.npr.org/2014/01/06/259422776/army-takes-on-its-own-toxic-l e aders (trust NPR to call a Gunny Sargent in a movie an 'officer', but apart from that a good report).

***What "good cops?" To some degree they are all bullies, thugs or morons. Even if they aren't beating the crap out of people or murdering unarmed civilians they protect the cops that do. These supposed "good cops" will twist themselves into pretzels to defend, justify and protect the bad ones. Here in Los Angeles, the police chief makes sure to protect the bad ones. And if you are protecting and defending and justifying bad behavior that isn't being a good person.


Eh, no. I can vouch for the existence of one good cop. A friend of mine from college. He got reprimanded by the Peoria, IL police force for refusing to rough up a black suspect as a rookie. So he quit there and went to a small town where he was the interim police chief for a while. He's a good, solid guy.

OnlyM3: neongoats

Cops are civilians, just saying. They aren't some special pseudo military protected class. Any farking useless pig farker that tells you different... They absolutely are a protected class. They have dozens of protections from prosecution that Joe-6-pack would never have.


They also have other special laws and protections that pertain to them.  You can beat up your neighbor for blaring loud music at 2 AM (for example) and get maybe a few months in jail...probably just probation and a fine or something.   You beat up a COP for doing the same thing and you're royally screwed.

Lord-Fark-Wad: They would probably sit in jail while prosecutors can trump up the charges to make sure that what ever plea is reached it greater punishment than if the offender simply went to trial.


Up here, if you don't accept a plea deal and try to take it to trial, they put the screws to you and try to find other charges to hit you with.

A justice system we do not have.  It's barely even a legal system.  It's a freakin' business model.  I wonder if Maine has any for-profit prisons in it...

I'm all for defending cops, I do it in the majority of cop hating threads on Fark.com.  But here we have conclusive proof these guys not only stepped over the line but they lied about it on their reports.  So they lost the benefit of the doubt.  Now the question is, what else did those cops do to other people in custody that didn't get caught on video?

You shouldn't be apeshiat about the level of brutality, you should be apeshiat these cops are seemingly doing whatever they want and then falsifying their reports.

Sighs....as a retired police officer who has taken many people to jail, i can say from seeing the video that this was completely unnecessary. Kid weighed about 130 soaking wet, and from what i saw, he was, at the most, just "maybe" talking shiat. There was no need, none, with 3 huge officers that clearly could have controlled him, to slam him into the wall like that. Prisoners talk shiat, that doesn't give you the right to injure them. There was no need at all to slam him like that, the officer who hurt him should be fired, and jailed for battery, and have to pay the kid damages out of pocket. The officer who maced him should be fired, as it was 1. not needed, and 2. he thought it was funny. This kind of horrible police work shames all good officers everywhere who try to do a good job and treat people with respect. Kid should get a nice fat pay off for this one. And officer brutal should go to prison. Shame on you officers, shame on you, for your lack of control, and brutal treatment of a human being.

Chummer45: Jesus Christ.  Way to perfectly summarize what's wrong with police culture in this country.


That and the fact that there's any sort of "culture" to it at all.  Thugs, cops, hipsters, politicians, attorneys... everybody's got their own little dime store closeout excuse for a subculture, but I can't see a single American - as far as what's on that label - amongst the lot of them.  Everybody's got their own little tree house  and everybody else is cutting down trees.  I don't see anybody doing any planting or watering.  Everybody's trying to "get away with sh*t cause they're special".  No, you're not.  Stop that.  You're toxic, useless and full of more sh*t than a congressional subcommittee.

Really? "Because he didn't stand up?" Fark you assholes. And for the people here who are police, and who know police, it's people like this who drag that image through the mud. And it's not like this is an isolated incident, who the fark is supporting these pricks? The unions need to do some DEEP soul searching, and start setting up a code of conduct defining who they will and who they won't fight to protect.

2014-01-09 09:47:18 AM  
My annoying one with police happened in Minneapolis. My brother's laptop was stolen, but I had set his laptop so I could remote into it so I could fix it when he broke it. The thief put it on the network and even used my brother's facebook account to taunt him. While he was doing that, I was installing a tracking program on the laptop so it would e-mail me everytime it went online. I then provided the cops with the ISP, MAC and IP of the router and video evidence of the laptop still being used. http://youtu.be/RabAgU35n50?t=47s">http://youtu.be/RabAgU35n50?t=47s​ I went online over and over and over to find the laptop online and being used. So I logged onto it and tried to find the name of the person using it. They were using Facebook. I found several usernames this way. The laptop profile was renamed Preston and one of the facebook logins was Preston Taylor. I looked him up and got a picture. Again, I shared all this with the police. Nothing happened. I started calling the police department daily and he stopped answering my calls and responding to my e-mails. I got one e-mail saying he had better things to do than track down a laptop. Finally, I got a friend from the city council involved. She called in some friends at the police department (This was shortly before the election) and I finally started to get calls back. They finally issued a subpoena and got an address. Then they sat on it again until I raised a ruckus on Facebook explaining what I had done so far. Finally, they went out and got the laptop. Now it's three months since it was stolen and I know the cops have the laptop. Of course, now I get an e-mail saying that they aren't going to prosecute because it's not a felony.

Yeah, the cops are just awesome...

internut scholar: cannibalparrot: ModernPrimitive01: I've yet in my life to be in a situation where I felt better that a cop showed up, and I've seen some things

I totaled my car the othe day. It came to rest in the middle of the highway, at night, on icy roads, and the lights/electrical system were destroyed by the wreck. I would have felt better had a cop showed up right about then as I was waving oncoming traffic down with only the light of my phone.

And wouldn't you know it? Nobody showed up, even after calling 911.

/thankfully a wrecker just happened to come along about 15 minutes later


You are lucky no one showed up. If the cops had you would have got a citation for the wreck. At least in PA you would have.


Eh, it was just me. Hit a patch of black ice and tore up my car on the left barrier (which was absurdly close to the highway, otherwise I could have corrected the slide).

And they were running the snow plows without salt, so they were pushing the only bit of traction off the road, and leaving the bare ice behind. Had they ticketed me, I'd have been more than happy to send them a lawsuit for taking actions that contributed to the wreck...probably wouldn't have gone anywhere, but I'd have felt better that it would likely cost them more than what I paid on the ticket.

Because fark Tennessee, that's why.

/funny you mention that. I always told officers i worked with, or from nearby police departments, that if i was with them on a call, and they farked up a suspect with no valid cause, there is no way, none, that i would lie for them. I would tell anyone who asked that you farked him up for no reason, other than that you were pissed. I never beat a suspect who didn't fight, even if he was a scumbag who needed a good ass kicking.  And if i saw an officer do that to someone without cause, yes, i would report them. In writing. I wanted no part of slapping a suspect around with no legal justification.  THAT..is not our job. No, i wasn't popular, and thats fine. At the end of the day, i could look in the mirror and know i treated people with respect, even if they didn't do the same to me.

And if you are protecting and defending and justifying bad behavior that isn't being a good person.

Eh, no. I can vouch for the existence of one good cop. A friend of mine from college. He got reprimanded by the Peoria, IL police force for refusing to rough up a black suspect as a rookie. So he quit there and went to a small town where he was the interim police chief for a while. He's a good, solid guy.

/really? Im from that area, might have worked for him.


He was only on the force briefly in 2006 or 07. He moved to Washburn, I believe. He was only there briefly before their chief and pretty much the whole force got kicked out because of something bad that they were involved in, leaving him, the rookie, as acting police chief. It was almost like a Hollywood story.

Period.

You either uphold the law or you don't.  Ask an honest judge.  This wild west v.2.0 sh*t has got a beard to it's balls and so do your excuses.

lennavan: notatrollorami: I know this is supposed to be a cop hate thread and all, and maybe I'm alone in this and cynical, but based on the comments I read I was underwhelmed by the video. There's plenty of serious police brutality out there; I'm just not sure this rises to the level I'm going to go apeshiat about.

I'm all for defending cops, I do it in the majority of cop hating threads on Fark.com.  But here we have conclusive proof these guys not only stepped over the line but they lied about it on their reports.  So they lost the benefit of the doubt.  Now the question is, what else did those cops do to other people in custody that didn't get caught on video?

You shouldn't be apeshiat about the level of brutality, you should be apeshiat these cops are seemingly doing whatever they want and then falsifying their reports.


A valid point and well taken.

Prey4reign: Come on people.  The police "violence" was no worse than what goes on at most fraternity hazings.  Looked like a group of older people introducing a younger person into the real world.
