    The cops on Live PD are freaking saints compared to the jagoffs that end up in this thread. They actually give cops a good name for the most part, but **** if this thread doesn't make it hard to not really dislike them all.

    Well, they're on camera and being broadcast to America. Of course they're saints. I would be too.

    Knowing what I know of how Lake County IL rolls, they're (sadly) putting on a show for the Live PD cameras. One of their first nights they had a B&E. They arrive with their SWAT gear and a dog and go charging through the front door, then stand in the living room waiting for the cameras to turn off. One lone officer casually strolls in the dark around to the back of the home as if it's his house. They come back from break and the officer shows "the open window the suspect could have used."

    Another night they had a similar staged setup. The locals called them out on it on Twitter.

    A few good guys with a Taser

    Which begs the question, just how long will a Taser's batteries last?

    Agreed but that remark was in context to a previous comment that noted plenty of cops that are on camera still act like morons. I realize it's not the same as being on A&E but you'd think having anything they do being recorded ever would calm the beast more often than it does.

    Ya know I rarely wish harm on anyone but those cops should get tazed 30-40 times while restrained see if that teaches them.

    I bet our nimrod president is proud though...

    "Sheriff Joe" and this guy are two more examples that illustrate how we have given cops in this country far too much rope. If we routinely held them accountable for their misdeeds -- nothing more, just held them accountable -- stories like these would become few and far between. But nowadays the default application is to anoint every cop a here merely for wearing a badge when the truth has been proven somewhere on a daily basis that this is misguided at best and tragic at worst. Of all the institutions in this country that need to get their houses in order, law enforcement is at the top of the list.

    Prayers for the family of Houston Police Officer Steve Perez, who drowned in his patrol car. The 34-year veteran was days short of his 61st birthday.

    End of watch Officer Perez, rest easy.

    Right as I type that, I skim down and read the perp's attorney's quote. Yes, we have the defendant's lawyer scripting the cop's excuse, and it's pretty much exactly what I predicted. Perfect!

    I don't even doubt he was being facetious/joking but it's just such an incredibly dumb thing to say.

    edit: Another instance where cops shoot a mentally ill person and easily could've avoided the situation

    Most of these cops arent even trained on how to do this. My gf works in the mental health field as a teacher (and her brother was Schizophrenic) so I hear about it often. (the cops get called...A LOT!)

    I thought a lot of places now had civilized training for cops and that cops really respond well to it (not the tin badge dictators but the vast majority who are there for the right reasons)? Maybe the places that do it just get a lot of press.

    Maybe he wanted to spend more time with his fake medals.
