winedrinkingman: I support the police.  That said having been a cop I can honestly say that the best thing you can do to support the police is to remove the bottom third of officers who are racist, violate people's rights, or who fail to live up to the moral obligations that we deserve from police.

By an amazing coincidence these also tend to be the dumbest guys in every department, who screw up other officers' investigations, sexually harasse the female staff, and escalate routine calls into dangerous confrontations for mot just the public, but also all the other cops.


How many cops are there who don't know about a single other cop who's a racist, a liar, corrupt, or just a violent psycho?

If they know about any of that and haven't done anything about it, they've failed to live up to the moral obligations that we deserve from police.

Begoggle: JesseL: asciibaron: this sets up an interesting dilemma.  if people want Trump arrested and brought to justice for his crimes, that would require the police.  if all cops are bastards and they are part of an evil in the country, how will Trump get arrested for his crimes?

20/20 mad as a dog

All cops don't have to be bastards. It just happens that they currently are.

It's no great stretch to imagine current systems being replaced in function and employing people that aren't bastards.

Did you really think you had some kind of clever *gotcha* there?

But if they were truly evil, wouldn't they just let all the actual criminals go free, 100% of the time?
Also, Hitler was nice to dogs! And made the trains run on time! If he was really evil, would he do that??


They do let the actual criminals go free, as long as the criminals wear a badge while the commit crimes. How many cops have been arrested for the murder of Breonna Taylor? How many cops have been arrested for participating in the Lafayette Square Police Riot? How many cops have been arrested for the abduction of protesters on the streets of Portland?

Trump has already admitted crimes in front of the whole world and exactly jack shiat happened to him. Additionally, the Attorney General of the US is quite clearly corrupt and protecting him. There is no way any cop, local or federal, is going to touch Donald Trump. Thinking otherwise is a pipe dream

You can't just have a Purge night/week/month/year until we get the police force composed of 100% right-thinking people.  So again, what's the actual policy solution?

There are bad cops because:
1. Bad cops are hard to fire because of the terms of their employment.
2. Bad cops are also hard to fire because of the reluctance of their peers to inform on them because they work in a dangerous job where your peers literally have your life in their hands.

Doing anything without addressing the terms of the employment will just give you a bunch of rookie cops who can't be disciplined.
Continue to demonizing them will just make problem two worse by reinforcing the us vs. them mindset.

Witnessing an assault, rape, burglary, hit and run accident, serious road rage, etc.

And you already know that I am pro-Second Amendment AF, but the reality is that I don't carry most days, and even if I did, there would still be situations where I would still call 911 and ask for law enforcement.

The_Sponge: And if all cops are bastards, then I hope you guys "keep it real" and never call 911 for a situation that would usually call for law enforcement.


Let's keep it real: At no time, while I was a victim have the cops helped me when I called them. They never recovered my belongings, they didn't arrest the people who stole from me, they didn't put my rapist in jail, they mocked me and treated me poorly while I was begging to be taken to the hospital after being raped, they gave me a ticket when my car was stolen and left in the street by the idiot thief who couldn't drive a stick, and they assaulted me the time I ran to them after being assaulted. So... what the fark are they doing that I'm gonna miss? In 35 years they haven't once fixed a situation or made it better.  Sure, I might want to call them, delusionally thinking they may help, but past experience tells me they aren't going to help shiat anyway.

Michael J Faux: fragMasterFlash: I tend to give a hallpass to the older seemingly mellow cops but I can't stand the skinhead ex-mil cops with Punisher tats and an agressive "come at me, bro" attitude in every situation. I suppose I should quit giving the former a pass since they seem perfectly fine with the latter.

t = (1/n [h]) * 1/s

t = trustworthiness of the cop
n = diameter of their neck
h = length of their hair
s = number of skull decals/tats/patches

Because it's more or less considered universally that the police need to stop carrying the burden of anything other than keeping the peace and critical public safety needs.  Yet they're stuck dealing with shiat like homelessness and welfare issues that would be best handled by damn near anyone else routinely.

So, cut a decent amount of that funding so they only have the money to focus on their core mission and use that monetary difference to fund HUD, family services, SNAP, etc...

Okay....how about the hit and run situation?

I could follow the other vehicle, get their license number, and give their location to law enforcement.

And even if I can't follow that car, and least I could give them the license plate info so they can track down the perp.

And the situation is improved because the hot and run driver will be arrested.
