i would call my family to sort it out, i can tell u that right now. and i would do the same for them.
If your car gets stolen you wouldn't call the cops? Yeah right.
no one got their car stolen in this artcile. what u just did there is exactly what i mean. people turn a blind eye to evil things done by the police all the time because they put police on a pedestal. its sickening and isn't right.

it says the clip isn't available. what is it?
That's weird; it's the King Kong scene from "Training Day."
never seen that movie, looks good tho
I'm not saying they are all bad and good. I'm saying people are all human and capable of evil, my problem is putting regular humans on a pedestal for being in uniform and shaming others for not instinctively trusting them.
Look at how you used “police” and “police departments” again. If you pay attention, it seems as if you’re including all police and police departments. I understand humans, no matter whether they’re wearing a uniform or not, can commit good or bad actions. I think putting anyone on pedestal is not ideal, but if people trust and respect police more than other groups of people it’s because police aren’t like everyone else.
They’ve been vetted and passed a series of examinations, obstacles, and training to do job that is inherently dangerous and stressful. There’s very few people that can and would want to do this job.
they are vetted the same way priests who touch little boys are vetted. they dont fire them, they relocate. im sorry but this is reality and it happens a lot. i dont like when stuff like this gets ignored because the idea of police departments sounds good on paper. maybe im just an idealist or whatnot. it just bothers me how much people turn a blind eye to horrifying stuff.
From a purely reasoned stand point I agree, because a human can't control the actions of other humans. But from a responsibility and authority standpoint of leadership... it is entirely fair to blame them for the actions of 1. If you're in charge it is your fault. Your officer does something wrong it is your fault, your responsibility to correct it and to make up for any damages that occurred from it. The level of responsibility inherent to the position is higher and therefore it is fair to blame the police as a whole. At the very least that department who hired, trained and passed a man who was willing to do that.One could argue that it's not a just position to take by saying it's okay to not hold them responsible for what their officers do, because most of their officers do good for society. You just gotta hope you get a good one this time *shrugs*. To me that doesn't fly. If one officer does bad he is bad. If another officer does nothing or protects that man he is bad aswell. If their supervisor does nothing they are bad. If the department head does nothing the department as a whole is bad. And there's more than one story of an officer doing bad and getting protected, even as subtle as being shipped to another department rather than being expelled from the police force.
