The fact that this is much worse than wrongful use of the taser and pepper spray doesn't justify those actions. To me, that argument sounds the same as "Every time you hear about children getting beaten, just think of the kids that get murdered". One is worse than the other, but they are both very, very wrong.
So what the hell are officers suppose to carry to protect the public and themselves? Or are you just talking about the use of these weapons at the wrong time?
You should really rethink that statement Lotus. Yeah there are some douche bag cops out there, but not all cops are like that. There are some damn fine officers out there that I'm proud to have out their doing a thankless job.
Exactly man. There are racist, unprofessional, prick cops out there, but just because there is, doesn't mean ALL of them are. The fine officers that are out there are always overlooked which is sad.
It's pretty humorous to me when people say they hate cops, **** tha police, shit like that, but who do we call when we are in trouble or our lives are at risk?
"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann
