    Re: Cops 5: Barney Fife, Now in Real Life!

    There are cops who are very narrow-minded. They think they have the solution, and it makes them look at each thing that supports their bias, and ignoring other evidence. It doesn't matter what political, racial, whatever slant the cop holds. It only matters if the "clues" support the cop's decision.

    For argument's sake, say the cop is a MAGA herpaderp guy (hush in the peanut gallery ). He thinks Joe A, who is a member of a white nationalist party, voted Trump, is homophobic, is God/football/family (in that order), did the illegal act. Meanwhile, Ru Paul is sitting there with blood on his/her hands, quite literally, and that cop will stick with this assumption.

    Yes, going overboard posting the above; it's to prove a point about the mindset of some people. You will not convince them that they are wrong. Their minds are made up, period.

    I don't know if one of the six still feels the way she did, but according to this article she still claims they were involved. Sad.

    The one who spoke to our class was Thomas Winslow. Without knowing what he was like before spending years in prison wrongfully, he definitely came across as someone at least partially defeated. Extremely soft spoken, and it just sounded like he had lost something.
    I can imagine. I feel a little defeated sometimes when I feel trapped by the normal things we all face when our lives get a little tough. He was actually trapped behind bars for years wrongfully and against his wishes. That could make the strongest person feel defeated.

    Nice that this story did not include the all-too-common "Police officer shoots and kills unarmed black teenager." Also surprising -- shocking actually -- was the statement from his FOP lodge that Kovach "acted outside of the purview of his duty as an officer of the law." As the recognized and certified labor representative for Lorain's police officers, FOP Lodge 3 is required by Ohio's public employee collective bargaining laws to investigate any union member's claims of unjust discipline, but that doesn't mean it has to pursue a grievance if it reasonably finds there is no merit to that claim.

    Lorain county was a toss-up in the 2016 presidential race but every third flag pole will have a confederate flag flying from it.

    I assumed the kid was white. It didn't occur to me that if he were black he'd have lived.

    It's a nice job, especially the compensation.

    Well I am sure they "feared for their life" because he didnt stretch his legs out enough. Each and everyone of those cops should be tazed in the face. No hyperbole this crap is ridiculous and the fact that there was another cop there not caring and two others that made sure to crowd control after is further evidence that they care more about their fellow officers than the citizens they CHOOSE (they arent forced to be cops, if you cant handle it snowflake go be a security guard at Wal-Mart) to protect.

    This is not a few bad apples, this crap is happening every friggin day. And I dont care about the stats...I dont care if it only happens once it is once too many and no one is doing anything to fix it.

    Will not be fired or suspended. Apparently, their policies are vague and allow for this?

    Those are some pretty ****tily written policies if they allow someone to get tased while sitting on the curb with their back to the officer.

    Loitering, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest ... they can throw the book at him.
