police are out of control in many states.
cops should apologize to the woman, grab a woman from behind & she is bound to resist. there was no reason to take her to jail.
How to make abuse of power seem not so bad.
"At least we didn't rape you..."
I guess it's true on some level.
Meanwhile in Texas...roadside anal penetration...
not just Texas
But at least they weren't raped!
Seriously, that's the standard we live under now...?
pretty sad state of affairs. cops out of control thanks to the courts.
I blame lawyers .... always.
They are no longer, and rarely had been, societal participants.
Illegal strip and cavity searches ARE rape.
And I totally agree with you. It's ****ing ridiculous that this type of stuff even happens in a country that prides and pats itself on the back for being "free".
I hate to invoke Godwin's law, but this is exactly the type of **** that used to happen in places like Nazi Germany & the USSR.
Common ground. I like it
Not just the courts. The law makers started making all these funky above the law exemptions for cops.
Once you elevate cops to where they are above the laws that the the people THEY SERVE are subject to, it's obvious things were going to go downhill.
Every state should have a randomly chosen civilian review board from the communities where questionable officer actions take place.
This is a great idea. Take the example of the other thread that's open right now about the homeless guy in Michigan being shot 47 times.
Why was it "federal authorities" who determined the cops shouldn't face charges?
They should have to face a jury of their peers, and it should be up to the jury to make that decision.
even then is sad to say things fail, look at the Kelly Thomas trial.
i always thought that cops should be held to a higher standard concerning to every aspect of the law, and especially when violence and brutality is involved.
in other words, some actions that are acceptable or semi-acceptable in a citizen, should be unacceptable and subject to harsher punishment if it's an officer committing them.
unfortunately and sadly, it is the opposite.
