It will never happen, but a big step in improving cops, and you could do this same thing with teaching and education, would be to make all cops state employees who were loaned out to local municipalities to man their departments.  Their pay would come from the state, and the state would have the ultimate power to fire and hire them.  The municipality would have the power to say "We don't want this cop working in our municipality anymore" and to bring criminal charges against bad police.

This would mean that the County Sheriff wouldn't be able to fill his department with a bunch of unqualified, barely literate deputies, just because he won an election and they were buddies of his back in High School, which often happens in many rural agencies, and sadly as those deputies get experience, they often find their way into working in larger agencies who would have never picked them up as rookies.  It would also mean that you couldn't get fired from one agency and move down the road to another.  

I would still have different agencies within the State, including a State Bureau of Investigation, which would do internal investigations of police, and I would probably create a separate and competing Investigation agency that competed with the state BI to find corruption, but from a different direction, say maybe one looked into civil matters like a state HR department, and the other criminal, with communications between each other so that neither could develop the habit of looking the other way because the other was constantly watching them.

This would also mean higher pay and benefits in the smaller departments, which would mean more interest in recruiting, which would mean that more bad candidates could be turned away and that smaller agencies wouldn't continue to be back door recruiters for racists and bigots to get into policing.  This isn't the entire problem, but no agency will turn away a potential recruit with four years of law enforcement experience and a clean record over an inexperienced rookie, so this is often how bad cops get into agencies that try to do the right thing in their hiring by screening for bad officers.

No, they mean that when a cop acts as a good cop, other cops and the system ensure one of two things happens
1) They get corrupted enough to look the other way (and thus cease being good cops)
2) They get fired/Serpico'd/Schoolcraft'd  (and thus are still good, but are no longer allowed to be cops).

The fact that more cops will get fired for whistleblowing in the future reinforces the saying, because it makes it clear that the people that are good cops ARE FORCIBLY REMOVED FROM POLICING.

This is corruption at its finest. The procedures and processes of cop whistleblowing at the NC SBI are designed to reveal who the 'rats' are in the police departments. Heres the TL/DR:

-The officer (Thompson) calls the SBI (Ammons) to make a whistleblower complaint against his supervisor who committed a felony
-The SBI (Ammons) mails the whistleblowers complaint, full name and details to the DA (Miller)
- the DA (Miller) just goes the the Thompsons boss and passes on the details under the guise of 'wanting camera recordings'

Whistleblowing is supposed to be protected. There is no reason that SBI should have mailed the officers details to anyone, nor that the DA should have revealed them to the PD

Thompson after being fired for it: "he would get away with it and the only time bad people get away with bad things is when good people decide to stand by and do nothing .... If this is the last thing I ever do in law enforcement, I'm OK with that."

JFC, this are the kind of person you want running the show, not being kicked out.

It's striking (pun intended) that the situation basically started with this guy straight-up beating the suspect's ass. He had no problem with use of force when he thought it legitimate. His entire Police Sin is that he takes his obligations seriously enough to not be okay with injuring a handcuffed suspect or with a cover-up. Non-dereliction of duty is apparently a firing offense.

My bet:

He was never a good cop. He was involved in an arrest in late May where his supervisor (and probably he) tuned someone up. He did nothing, for 2 months and 11 days. He was facing discipline for his own actions on a case. When it got hot he raised holy hell about how his supervisor tuned up a suspect during an arrest as well basically trying to tell folks to back off or he squeals. Instead of backing off, they continued.

So, once he knew he was going to be fired, he filed a whistleblower complaint in an effort to claim he was fired for the complaint 1 day later.

It makes a good headline, but cops do not get tend to get fired in one day. There is a process in 98% percent of organizations.

Boys will be boys. That's not an excuse, but rather the heart of the problem. Boys are hostile to anyone who would rat them out for any reason.

How do you create a cop culture that puts truth and the law ahead of the cop tribe? Or the military unit tribe? Or the sports team tribe? Or the fraternity tribe?

He should consider himself lucky that like former Buffalo PD officer Cariol Horne he was only fired.

And, not say, forcibly committed to a mental hospital like former NYPD officer Adrian Schoolcraft.

Worst case,they simply assassinate you the day before you are scheduled to give testimony like former Baltimore officer Sean Suiter.

TLDR: There are no good cops.

TL;DR - White supremacists/Christian nationalists made a concerted effort to join police departments over the course of a couple decades with the intention of getting into positions of power where they could control the training, directives, and employment policies of these departments. They succeeded. As a result of that, the Blue Wall of Silence exists. If you're a good cop who joins up and finds you're surrounded by violent, racist, fascist pigs, it's too late for you to do anything about it. If you report it, they will ruin your life or even kill you "in the line of duty." If you're a BIPOC cop, you're expected to toe the line and do as you're told (i.e. enact white nationalist directives and policies) or, as succinctly stated in the movie Blade Runner, "Stop right where you are! You know the score, pal. If you're not cop, you're little people."

No choice, pal.

The police in most towns are a branch of your local white nationalist / Christian nationalist groups. The "good cops" are few and far between, and when they do reach an important decision involving turning in their fellow cops, they have little help and a lot to lose. The unions are now empowered by these same white nationalists, the training is done by extremist white supremacists who teach cops to see the people they encounter as targets and threats.

If you want the even-shorter, easier version of all this, I made a meme:

One big problem with that is the pollical hacks running my state have proven multiple times that they couldn't successfully run a Kool-aide stand, much less something like this.  My local sheriff is a pretty good guy in the community, and some towns are gifted that way.

It makes a good headline, but cops do not get tend to get fired in one day. There is a process in 98% percent of organizations.

This is just one asshole saying you did not cover for me so I will not cover for you.


That was my suspicion when I first read the story. It sounds like he beat the crap out of the drunk guy, and when he wrote his report he tried to make the supervisor look like an equal participant believing that would prevent the supervisor from taking action against him.  Oh, and this is a sheriff's department where deputies can indeed be fired in one day. Deputies serve at the whim of the sheriff and he can hire and fire at will. That's why sheriff's departments are really lousy places to work in law enforcement.

That's when you hire a prostitute to give him a hummer from the podium while he's giving a speech. Or replace his shampoo with epoxy resin.

CruiserTwelve: MarciusDecimus: My bet:

He was never a good cop. He was involved in an arrest in late May where his supervisor (and probably he) tuned someone up. He did nothing, for 2 months and 11 days. He was facing discipline for his own actions on a case. When it got hot he raised holy hell about how his supervisor tuned up a suspect during an arrest as well basically trying to tell folks to back off or he squeals. Instead of backing off, they continued.

So, once he knew he was going to be fired, he filed a whistleblower complaint in an effort to claim he was fired for the complaint 1 day later.

Are you sure about that? All public employees have due process rights associated with their jobs that private employees don't have.

So let me get this right. A Cop can murder someone because "they fear for their life", but get in trouble for saying naughty words?
