LordZorch: I've lived here for over 20 years - Seattle Police and King County Sheriff dept are a bunch of thugs with badges.
Generation_D: 100 police officers just made it very clear they are unfit to wear a badge.
JerkyMeat: Fire all of them and replace them with cops who will obey the law.
neuroflare: That was a day cop trifecta
AverageAmericanGuy: Kirkland police are pretty nice. The worst they do is save space in the line at Starbucks so you'll be behind one of them and suddenly 6 more show up and cut in front of you.Redmond police are greedy bastards who will ticket you for looking at them wrong.Issaquah police are very much like Redmond police, but a bit less uptight.Woodinville police are nowhere to be seen. They just don't have a lot of crime up in that area.
EvilEgg: You know what would solve this, constantly on video cameras. Then a third party could decide on whether the beating was justified.
So far today there are three Seattle threads. 2 involving police complaining about stuff. And 1 involving a person giving away weed. And its only 330am here.Seattle, you are doing it right!
/I love this town
jso2897: JerkyMeat: Fire all of them and replace them with cops who will obey the law.When their own union doesn't support the lawsuit, it suggests that the facts of the case Democrats may not be on their side.

liam76: When Scott Walker went on his union rampage in Wisconsin, what unions were spared?
Bslim: They also want to be awarded damages for lost time and wages and punitive damages for the "ungrounded maligning of the good work of SPD's patrol officers."*mind blown*
neongoats: Body cameras on all officers, at all times. 3 directional cameras in each patrol car, and videos collected in such a way as to prevent tampering.
It's the only to control the biggest threat to peace and freedom we have in America: the farking worthless pigs.
Time to talk about my cop destroying super pac idea again. Thru fundraising, bribes, and lobbying we will lobby to enact legislation to:
Have all cops under video surveillance at all times.
Ensure that the "thin blue line" cops protect cops who are criminals bs dies on the vine.
Ensure that cops are subject to the same legal system that everyone else is, not above it.
We lobby to crush their pay and benefits, because fark you. Chowing donuts and shooting unarmed people isn't "putting your life on the line"
We lobby to officially destroy the concept of jack booted "law enforcement" and put back into place "to protect and serve". Police are peace officers whose purpose is to keep the peace and help people in trouble, not to coerce obeissance.
We lobby to crush the militarization of PD's. No, you don't get to play with hummers, UAV's, drones, rocket launchers, attack helicopters and fighter jets. Not yours. You get a billy club and a flashlight and a revolver and a tazer and some pepper spray. If you can't manage to keep the peace with that, you suck and should be fired, period.
Baconpac: rendering the fat out fhe U.S. police forces.

/ and I think police doing actual police work deserve to be well-paid
// since criminals out there are occasionally really well armed, the police do need enough firepower to take them down..( eg.The 1997 North Hollywood shootout
// agree with everything else you posted...
Zeb Hesselgresser: In 2012 Seattle officials agreed to an independent monitor and court oversight of the city's police department as part of a deal with the Justice Department following a report that found officers routinely used excessive force. So there should be ample evidence to support their case, right? Right? Let's see it.
AverageAmericanGuy: Kirkland police are pretty nice.
Forbidden Doughnut: That killing of the Native American woodcarver is still pissing me off...../ I've got no respect for the Seattle police after that incident...
