    nothing new here, except the positive aspect of
    all the surveillance gear being used to protect civilians rights.
    someone in the dept. must have leaked that.
    i do wonder how that all works, if tapes are public property, and if we get kick back when it is sold to networks for cop shows?
    my old band van got hit by an off duty cop in d.c. making a u turn in the in the early 90's. my drummer, who was driving, refused to take responsibility, even though we were plowed into.
    he was "detained" for 4 hours, and charged anyway.
    when he fought it, he was harassed until he backed down.
    business as usual...

    I agree.

    This type of thing and worse happens more than people care to believe.

    I'm really not surprised. Just because you're sworn to "Uphold the law" doesn't mean you going to. :rollno:

    OMGZ NO!



    I now question the legitimacy of the Huffington Post.

    More like the Bluff-ington Post, lulz!

    Cops are like other people - there are good ones and bad ones.

    No no no... They got guns and cuffs. Not like other people, at all...
    It's easier to deal with criminals than cops. At least you know criminals are criminals up front. Never trusted cops, never will...

    I don't like the police, but I'm sure off the clock an awful lot of them are reasonable, decent people.

    As an officer once told me, "if you worked at McDonalds and refused to make a Big Mac, you wouldn't work at McDonalds for very long."

    On the other hand, if you thought McDonalds was a foul place that no reasonable person should seek employment...

    Other people have guns, but we rarely carry cuffs. :D

    Do you carry them around legally?

    yep, as do plenty in FL one of the first states to have "shall issue" CCW's.

    The ironic thing about this one is the cops have zero excuse. You rear end someone it's your fault period. Failure to yield (even for an emergency vehicle) wouldn't justify rear ending in most states. A rear end collision is an at fault accident automatically.

    My buddy told me there's a fine line between cop and criminal, and he's a cop.

    Yeah, no surprise here. I have had a far more bad experiences with cops in South FL than good ones. Those other cops went along with it because there was nothing unusual about what that cop did - it's the norm.

    This is happening to my friend right now.

    The cops here don't have dash-cams, so they make up whatever they want and their word is worth more than ours.

    Cops like this should be locked-up in Gen-Pop for about 10 years ... or worse.

    Betrayal of the Public Trust is unforgivable.

    I was doing work for a cop a few years ago. He was a pretty cool guy and not the kind of person you'd expect to be a police officer. We got to talking about general BS. I asked him how he liked being a cop and his reply was funny. He said he was only in his second year and he hated it. He totally understands why everyone hates cops. "They're all *******'s, crooked jerks, scumbags, meatheads, etc etc. I hate cops. And now everyone hates me. It sucks!"

    You have no idea. None.

    I was a reserve deputy for seven years, and worked with Deputies, State Patrol, Town Marshals and City Police. I saw a whole range of behaviors and temperaments - and most of them were really good people doing a job that most of us would not want to tackle.

    Cops are people. There are good ones and bad ones. Some get worn down by the job and don't trust others; some are great folks never lose their ability to relate to other people.

    It's tough when EVERY day, you deal with a number of nice people, but more often you're forced to deal with a succession of low-lifes, liars, marginal characters, drunks and outright criminals. It's really easy to get jaded about the human race, and it's tough to keep a balanced attitude. The good ones manage it.

    Like any profession there are always bad seeds in the batch. I just wish they would find the bad ones before they get a chance to mess up someone's life. I do believe the majority of police are good, honest people that really care what they are doing.

    Cops who abuse their power like that deserve severe punishment by the justice system.

    I've known lots of good cops and a number who were jerks. It seems that some departments attract or develop good ones and others attract or develop bad ones. The good cops I've known have a really strong dislike for bullies, while the bad ones seem to like being bullies.
