I find it ironic that liberals love unions, but then complain that cops aren't held accountable and fired more often. Guess what stands in the way... police unions.

Latinwolf: Geotpf: iheartscotch: We had some 17 year old kid come and try to steal stuff the other day. His mom called later to complain about how he got caught.

I'm not saying all complaints against cops are like that; but, many are. Especially if the officer has to forcibly detain someone.

Yeah, I'm sure a few of the complaints were BS.  But he had 120+ complaints against him.  The next highest only had 23 complaints.

Prior to his latest investigation, Saulet had at least 120 complaints made against him, which Urquhart says is by far the most in the department. The next closest sergeant has 23 allegations, according to Urquhart.
More than 20 of those allegations were sustained, and Urquhart said the majority concern courtesy, use of force and conduct unbecoming.

Betcha most of those were from white people that were upset that a black man would get "uppity" with them.


If he was the only black officer on the force, you might be on to something...

If there were other black men on the force (most likely the case), how would you explain away this single officer's abnormally high number of complaints?

They've got a Union?

Only to a small extent. There are also PBAs and the departments themselves. Yes, police unions are part of the problem but to pretend that they are the whole problem or that police unions reflect accurately on other labor unions is wrong.

Broadway actors have a union, too, but the way that union operates is in no way analogous to the broader labor movement as it's generally understood.

Wouldn't they all have that Union?  Or was this particular officer not a member of it for some reason?

I'm just saying that thinking the reason he had so many complaints was because white people thought he was being "uppity" with them is ignorant.

The next highest was 23, you're really going to go that route.

The fact is that  most people don't take the time to complain the just move on with a proper fear of police impunity.

Some will see this as a good thing but I see it as disgusting.  It took media attention to make the Sheriff do his job and put this POS out to pasture.

With number like that this guy was probably violating rights as SOP on a daily basis,

And you sound like you might try to find racism everywhere around you, even when there isn't any.

I bet we're both right in our assumptions about each other.

I bet most of the complaints were from Santiago, that pussy.

No. Unions do their job, which is to represent the best interest of their members. If a bad cop gets his or her job back it's because a judge or "civilian review board" or Civil Service board gives it back.

Not a Seattle cop! He was a King County deputy. There is a difference (I know not much but still a difference).

Latinwolf: Ant: Brick-House: Sir -- you can never go wrong using sir when addressing a cop, unless the cop is a woman, then its Sugar Tits.

I am mentally physically incapable of calling anyone sir. If I did try to call someone sir, it would come out snarky and insincere.

Get real.



Get a dictionary and look up hyperbole. Then look up pedantic.

I remember seeing the video at the time the story broke. The officer was so mouthy I remember thinking to myself 'just stop talking, just stop talking...you're on video, the wee blinking red light means the camera is on...' Someone doesn't start being that abusive and entitled. He works up to it so I'd imagine a lot didn't make it into the press.

For those who care, there's some follow up on Petapixel.

Well, many don't even want cops to get fifth amendment protections when forced to answer administrative questions. That wouldn't exist without unions.

And oftentimes the best interests of a union's members are contrary to the interests of the public.

Too bad.

You might as well call for benevolent dictatorship imo.
