This does, indeed, seems to be rather unfortunate timing for them.

Good. I hope their station gets burned.

Look at the lengths this man had to go to to be heard, too.

I guess he's the mythical "good cop", but it looks to me like he's 1 in a department of dozens. People keep saying shiat like "99.9% of police are good" but it looks a lot more like 0.1% to me.

I would feel bad for smarting your post as we should never look for others to suffer. Yet there comes a time when it is necessary to reset some shiat and force people to be humans treating others w/ empathy. And not say soulless evil crap tarts bringing misery to others for their own personal pleasure.

This year is one of those times.

Power without accountability is the surest path to corruption.  This will continue until it is changed.

Power corrupts. From HOAs to Police to subjects in a controlled environment.
Sadly, not enough people will acknowledge this FACT. Thus there isn't enough support for massive oversight and other actions to continually keep power at bay. And a well armed militia is not enough to offset this reality.  In fact, guns give idiots a false sense of security. People in power, become corrupt. We need term limits and constant questioning of the choices people in any position of power makes.
Lastly we can't let our leaders act in secret. But, you 🐑 won't listen and keep licking at that boot and thinking the good can't possibly go bad.  It is not a matter of if they do; it's a matter of when they Will.

There is no such thing as a bad cop. What happens is that the power of being a cop, erodes our morality.
And this happens to each person in power at different speeds and different severities.
ranging from speeding when it's not necessary all the way up to killing people unnecessarily.
And everything in between

He's definitely doing a full fledged Serpico thing here, which is mighty rare, unfortunately.  Until it becomes a lot less rare, a lot of people will continue to think good cops are equally rare.

A whole lot of isolated incidents going on....

Serpico isnt known for nothing... Serpico was one of the only good cops who had the guts to stand up to the bad cops.

He's famous because he's one of the few. If there were really so many good cops, Serpico name wouldnt be known.

Mega Steve: A whole lot of isolated incidents going on....


It's not isolated it is the effect of power this is what being empowered does to you the only reason it looks isolated is because it's happening at different rates within each person individually.
So yeah there's no conspiracy but there is a systematic Rotting of the system

Oh no, there are truly bad cops, once was involved in defending a St Louis cop who went full "Bad Lieutenant" on a weekend bender in Chicago.   Had the cops who pulled him over for DUi not let him off the hook because...you know..cop, or the one who busted him buying coke, and then ate the arrest report, or the one at the first nightclub who didn't run him in for the fight he started...all  for the same reason,not done what they did, our cop wouldn't have been facing first degree murder charges over the guy his coked up, drunken ass gunned down because the guy stepped on his shoes

Power can, and does ruin people to the point they will feel entitled to do all of that.
Until we acknowledge the real problem. We will never have the oversight in place to act on those kinds of behavior. And, we will keep having a blue line that won't self police properly.

It's overly reductive to say all police are bad.

This is because we also have district attorneys and they are all bad too.

How does it end for Serpico? Didnt he have to flee to France? This dude might wanna get the fark outta dodge.

I'm loving that there's going to be an avalanche of true stories about police everywhere, also exposing those who were complicit.
 
2020-06-03 8:31:09 PM  
In a statement, city spokesman Daniel Terry promised authorities would investigate the accusations thoroughly, but cautioned that there are two sides to every story.
"I am confident that the our truth will come out, and I'd ask people to withhold judgment until it does we complete our cover up," he said. He said he could not comment further on a case in litigation.


FTFY.
