    it's a shame the good cops can lose it all if they turn in the bad apples.

    The cops who ostracised and threatened these cops should be thoroughly investigated. I fear this kind of behaviour indicates other dirty cops are still trying to subvert the law.

    1. I'm not that surprised this was going on with the CPD and what has happened with the whistle blowers.
    2. Maybe the FBI needs to do a better job of protecting the identity of whistle blowers so this sort of thing doesn't happen. Of all places, a police department is the last place you want to be known as a rat.

    That would mean almost every employee in almost every police district in the entire country.

    Most cops are "bad", even if they don't identify that way. Most will not hesitate to cover for their partner or for another officer, and that makes them an accessory. That is why rooting out corruption almost always comes from outside the department.

    this is the way cops work they really resent anyone looking at their actions. that will never really change.

    I don't think anyone (cop or a computer programmer) really likes anyone looking over their shoulder critiquing their work.

    I think this applies to all people not only cops, it is just cops are given a badge and a gun which makes them dangerous. As long as we are not united we will never solve this problem, this is why I am against BLM, it distracts from the real problem. Cops could not be more happy to have this BLM movements as it will ensures that the real problem of police corruption is not addressed.

    You are not racist, just a big believer in coincidence. I get it. One has nothing to do with the other.

    The movement has accomplished nothing, just a bunch of "thugs", right?

    pretty much, wait!! more whites are killed by cops every, they must be racist against whites. More men are shot by cops, so they must be sexist. More men are in jail, so the criminal justice system must be broken. I know facts and regressive don't go together very well.

    Might want to re-think that. The programmers over at NSA do both.

    No, computer programmers aren't the people who come to your house with guns. They don't take you away.

    With NSA no one really knows. As enemy combatant you just disappear. No court, no lawyer, no call, maybe a trial some day.

    I don't see men having protests that more men are killed by police than women. I wonder why? Could it be that there is a reason, could it be because more men commit crimes and put themselves in a position to be killed by police? "Hands up, Don't shoot." if you think rioting and burning down a city for a guy that just robbed a store and assaulted a police officer is a 1st amendment right, thats good for you.
