    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    While Clinton may have continued it, saying the war on drugs came from the left is a complete joke.

    Well if I wanted to just give the dick answer I'd say that at least if more of them were being killed I could understand their constant fear of someone trying to kill them. Screw it, I'm in a bad mood so I'll just let the dick answer speak for itself.

    Jesus.

    In a speech Friday to law enforcement officers, President Donald Trump urged them to not be “too nice” to suspected criminals and gang members, and appeared to endorse certain types of abuse by police and immigration agents.

    The address, in Brentwood, New York, was ostensibly meant to address the violence propagated by the MS13 gang. But, amid repeated raucous cheering and “thank yous” from the officers in attendance, Trump veered into several extended monologues on the value of being “tough.”

    Toward the end of his remarks, the President gave a chilling example of what he meant.

    “When you see these towns, and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough,” he said, referring to the arrest of alleged gang members. “I said, please don’t be too nice.”

    “When you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over,” he mimicked an officer putting a handcuffed person in the back of a squad car, the officer’s hand over the suspect’s head. “Like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody? Don’t hit their head?”

    “I said, you can take the hand away, OK?” he concluded, to laughter, and then loud applause.

    I'll own up to my 1/1000 of 1 percent. Now if we could just get cops to quit killing innocent unarmed non-threatening people we'd take care of the other 99.99%

    As I said in the POTUS thread, the cops he spoke to dont agree with him.

    As a journalist, that's a tough story to watch as the two main interviews are the lawyer for the family and someone who is openly against the Border Patrol. Regardless, nobody forced this 16 year old to drink the meth in the bottles.

    The lawyer for the ACLU told the reporter the later case of a BPO who sexually assaulted two sisters was closed. However, a minute later the reporter says the BPO says the case actually wasn't closed. So who do we believe in that situation?

    There need to be changes in the system and unfortunately, that's not going to happen on a wide scale basis.

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

    Anyone else see the video of the Baltimore cops planting drugs in a car?

    Just a few bad apples though. You know, all turning off their body cams, standing by while a colleague plants the drugs, and then conspiring against another innocent.

    Just a few. Not a big problem.

    ETA: this is the second time in about a month this has happened.

    I think it's time to record 100% of their activities. No more allowing them to turn them off. Don't care if you have to use the bathroom. The rights of the people far outweigh their right to privacy until they can prove themselves trustworthy.

    This isn't acceptable.

    Good god. You're right though, I'm not usually a fan of the whole "one bad apple ruins it for everyone" policies but when the police unions keep defending the bad apples that's kinda all you're left with in terms of options.

    Here is the thing...they KNOW they are being recorded and yet they do it anyways. How dumb are they?

    Scarier question...if this is what they do when they are recorded imagine the crap they pull when no one is watching.

    This is no longer just "a few bad apples" this is a flawed system that is starting to really show its cracks under the light of day.

    I'm not convinced recordings would help, except in cases where the accused is white. Many areas of the country still have this mentality that a black guy is "guilty until proven innocent".

    It's a combination. 1. They've always been like this, they're just getting caught now. 2. It's more than a few bad apples. 3. Culture of entitlement. They think they have to do this to do their job. 4. Lots of authoritarian personalities on the thin blue line. 5. Learned behavior from a culture where the cops are the Praetorian guard of the rich and everybody else is either the enemy or witless.
