Good.

Now, if they weren't fired, fire them and document it in their employee records that they were fired for an aggravating act that resulted in being arrested and charged.

"On their permanent record?" Not sure if that's really a thing anywhere, much less cop records.

So that's when you send a couple of senior plain-clothes officers in to escort him out of the area.  Perhaps nothing will make it look good, but cops dressed in riot gear looks extraordinarly bad.

With in human resources in the organization it is.  Additionally as a government entity, those records should be subject to public records requests.

I'm not a doctor either, but I have two doctors and three nurses in my family who all say that that was a head injury that he might not recover from. Bleeding that hard from the ear is a huge indicator.

My stepdaughter was a cop in Asheville for years and years. What happened there over the weekend shows why she quit. She got sick and tired of the harassment and the Nazi attitude which they showed the world last weekend.

If he was such a problem and had refused to follow instructions then arrest him - i mean if what, 20 officers can't get a 75 year old man into cuffs and taken away without shoving him onto the concrete then they shouldn't be cops in the first place.

Members of the team are now saying they did NOT resign in solidarity, but rather because the city said it wouldn't be paying for any defense teams if things went bad and the officers would have to pay for their own representation.

That's actually a pretty decent reason for resigning.

Also makes the Police Benevolent Association a pack of lying shiatstains, but that shouldn't surprise anyone at all.

FTFA "
The spokesperson for the city and police department, Mike DeGeorge, initially said in a statement that the man "tripped and fell."
"Once the department became aware of additional video from the scene, they immediately opened an investigation," DeGeorge told ABC News on Thursday."


I'm just glad there are cameras on cellphones. It makes everything happening that much more transparent. Unlike those damn body cams that always seem to break.
 
2020-06-06 12:27:15 PM  
Good, but why does it take time for this stuff?
If I ran up to a person in the street and assault them, I would likely be immediately arrested (even though I'm a white guy).
Fire and charge all the other cops who just stood and did nothing.

A decent person wouldn't have shoved an old man to the ground in the first place much less made excuses for it.
 
2020-06-06 12:32:42 PM  
I appreciate that the police on the ground are being put in a tough situation.  Being told to clear an area, when protestors do not want to be cleared, never looks good.  I think the problem here is equally in the approach (escalate, subdue, dominate, disperse) as it is with the execution of that approach.  I get why the 57 other members of the team quit.  From their standpoint, they were put in a no-win situation, then hung out to dry.

Hopefully this will result in more pushback 'Sir, I don't think tear gas is really necesary, why don't we just holster our weapons, put down our batons, and create a non-aggressive perimeter to prevent escalation, and then let the protestors protest'

yeah, right, who am I kidding.  These were black protestors, not 'fine people' in tacticool vests with full powered battle rifles, these protests clearly need to be broken up with extreme prejudice.
 
2020-06-06 12:32:44 PM  
I don't know how they arrived at 2. But at least one deserves a long and uncomfortable sentence. I'd rather that they ring up all the idiots who blithely walked on by as well. The video is bad enough I actually have hope for a conviction if the jerk isn't smart enough to plea out.

I'm not anti cop.  We need the police to keep the predators in our society in check.

But hurting the frail like that is unprofessional, unamerican, unchristian, and unnecessary.

Trocadero: What, they don't trust the public defenders? Why ever not?


Public defenders don't do civil suits, which should cost bad police mucho dollars.  Every police officer should have their own malpractice insurance coverage for civil suits.  The insurance companies could act to punish bad actors in the police force by increasing their rates so much that they would have no choice but to find a new profession.  With union insurance plan, it becomes much easier to hide the bad cops.

Weirdly, my company's legal team won't represent me, either, if I sexually harass or assault an employee - indeed, if I break the law while on company business, the company's more likely to provide evidence than assistance.

That's not a "pretty decent reason for resigning."

This doesn't even enter into their mindset, because they're bullies. A bully can't handle someone standing up to them, much less protesting them in public for hours on end.
