    Cop needs to go up the river for assault and battery and attempted murder. That was a fully cocked leg kicking the tip of his shoe directly into the top of the suspect's head. That's easily a fatal strike. Never mind losing his job and his pension, and being black listed from ever holding a job in policing, government, or security in the future.

    How about some more details? Time, place, links to stories about the case?

    I will.

    A) If Rodney King hadn't been zonked out of his mind with a BAC of 2.5 times the modern legal limit, he might have been capable of making the proper decisions to 1) Not speed or drive wrecklessly, 2) When lit up by the CHP to pull over, and 3) when ordered to get down on the ground, to not instead strike a combative posture.

    B) If the CHP was not using Rodney King for batting practice, he might have been more motivated to turn his well being over to the officers.

    That back-of-the-match-book analysis points me to the conclusion that King bears the lion's share of the blame for his own beat down.

    That guy has some serious psychological issues, obviously that department's psychological screening is insufficient, as is their disciplinary policy if he has any kind of violent history. As a city and county administrator I have worked with many excellent LEOs and a few pricks and hot-heads with "short cop syndrome". To paint all LEOs with a broad tarnished brush is inappropriate and highly unfair.

    Cop kicking fleeing *********

    The cop kicking the juvenile girl in the cell needs to be off the force. The cop kicking the guy who was fleeing in a car while endangering countless innocents was uncalled for but not unexpected given the adrenaline pumping after that car and foot chase. Both were wrong but the cop beating on the girl is more wrong.

    It looked like that girl could possibly have kicked one of her shoes off at the cop, but she shouldn't have had shoes on to begin with. No matter what, you have to be a fairy to hit a woman like that.
    OLD OWL, you really need to take a pill here. I could write a book too. You seem obsessed with the cop bashing. The wall paper you say you have was not specified, and they all have "friends and Relatives" who were cops. Somehow that makes you a "Kind of cop" or "sideline cop in the know!" It doesn't, sorry. The only way you would really know is to do the job and do it for a long time.

    The videos you provide many times show only a small part of what happened. The one where the woman who refused to get out of the car getting tazed, simply flat out refused to cooperate or be arrested, and resisted these officers. So, they go to arrest her and she refuses and resists. What should they do? Oh well boys, she don't want to go go to jail, so lets go eat lunch. Nothing we can do about it. Use your head for something besides the hate paint brush. By the way the Tazer came from Trial Lawyers, who forced cops to use it to avoid "FIGHTING" and to AVOID INJURY. Nobody gets teeth knocked out, etc.

    Not meaning to cut you down, but you sound like someone who's had one too many experiences with cops, on the wrong side of the handcuffs, or a defense attorney who listens to too many coneheads from the street AND BELIEVES THEM. I would never say that there are only good cops, but the good cops far outweigh the bad by a long shot. And good cops hate corrupt or uncontrollable cops. I know, I've been there. As a retired cop, who comes from a long line of retired cops on both sides of the family, I constantly got the lecture about not tarnishing the badge. If the badge was tarnished by corruption or heavy handedness, it was no more good. You were worthless as a real cop.

    Many of the problems seen today, come from 24 hour news coverage and a constant bombardment of all subjects that make news. You seem "Obsessed" with those incidents and apply them to ALL. Well you may have wallpaper that says "I are the Expert", but it ain't showin'. When your wife calls and says "Hey, come see this" as you said, it shows you are looking for the negative.

    Last but not least, your posts indicate you have dealt with and constantly take the side of the criminal. The comments you made about drug dealers claiming cops used up their dope is proposterous at least. How many times have I heard such crap come from the mouths of criminals who want to draw attention away from themselves and their deeds. Happens EVERYDAY. It happened to me frequently. Some drunk gets in court and accusses me of taking his wallet, some goofy broad saying I arrested her because she refused me sex, you name it. I submitted to investigations, polygraphs, and scrutiny until I was sick of it. That's what CRIMINALS and DOPEHEADS do. They lie, they cheat, they steal, they accuse, they draw attention away from what they have done, they point the finger at others and say, look at what he did...... I came out of those investigations unscathed because of my professionalism and known demeanor.

    Get real man. Do you put all Blacks in the same pot, or maybe all Firefighters. All Janitors, Lawyers, Teachers, etc, etc have a public duty and responsibility and they can abuse that trust. It's called People, and they are not perfect. If you want perfect cops or anyone else, then get robots, program them and send the people home.

  8. Hey Old Owl, you are an idiot!

  9. Hey Old Owl, Yes, I meant to cut you down and you need to be brought back to reality. You can run all the smack you want and all the cop bashing you want but believe me when I say "You, are an idiot".

    Hey Mod's, kick me off if you want but that idiot should not be allowed to bash every cop in this fine country! I'm sorry but if he can run his pie hole on here then I should be able to run and direct my pie hole at him too.

    I won't call him and idiot. That's not what I believe. I believe that he has focused on one thing.... the bad that bad cops have done. Let's look at it this way. How many times have I or any of my collegues pulled a kid out of a burning car, or stopped some dirtbag from hurting some innocent person. But that doesn't make the News. Does it? I contributed thousands of hours teaching free firearms safety and shooting classes for women, kids, handicapped and elderly people over the years, after seeing the need of those people who were crime victims and had no real training. I encouraged our Police Union to fund the classes, provide ammo, targets and range time, and about 50 of us held fund raisers twice a year for that purpose. These men gave alot of time and sweat to do this for these folks, and gave their time as range helpers and coaches. Did that make the News, Nope! Before I was a Cop, I was a Paramedic. I had the training. While I was a cop I saved numerous lives, pulled kids out of swimming pools, did mouth to mouth resucitation on street people, CPR on drug addicts, and stopped bleeding on criminals who had been shot. Did that make the news? No way.

    I'm not trying to spotlight myself here and say, Hey, look at me! That's not my intention. What I'm saying here, is that in this day and age of the internet and mega doses of 24 hour talking heads and news, with the age of the technology, we recieve a constant barrage of this stuff and the vast majority is Negative. When a cop does a good thing, who cares. When one screws up, it makes National Headlines for a week. If a Fireman saves a kid from a burning building, it's just his job, and might make page 23 of the Sunday times. But if one of them gets caught stealing a toothpick, 30 reporters show up to cover the story. Look at the good work that Doctors and Nurses do everyday. But let one of them get a DWI, and they are All Scum. Get It?

    I know people that can't get enough of this stuff, and they end up having anxiety attacks, are constantly angry and can't enjoy their lives. The constant negative, end of the world, everything is bad news, will kill you or make you an angry, irrational person. I've known guys like this and the trend is growing. Understand that as long as PEOPLE occupy uniforms and titles, there will always be good and bad. We try to screen and weed out the bad ones, and sometimes even good ones can gradually turn bad for one reason or another. It happens. The only way to avoid it is to go to that deserted island and live on your own, with no influences or communication.

    Believe me when I say it. All Cops are not your enemy. I know a big percentage that are NRA Members, competition shooters, hunters, fisherman, family men and women, fathers, mothers and good old boys. I would never say they are perfect, nor are all of them only good. But the VAST MAJORITY are good folks.
