Yep, more and more each day.

But you all just keep believing there are fewer and fewer bad cops while we find more and more.

Finally someone is here. There has been no one on this board all day. I thought maybe the rapture had occurred and I'd been left behind. So maybe the two of us were uninvited.

Count me amongst the uninvited too...

LL101, I agree that a disproportionate amount of cops are shit, when compared to the rest of society. A lot of them are good people too, that have unfortunately chosen a life as a revenue officer.

Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner.

“Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

We spend a lot of time talking about mental illness and the issues surrounding mass shooters, but what about cops that abuse their authority, injure, and kill the innocent?

Many cops have a god-complex. They believe they are the ultimate authority. It’s a high for them. And when they screw up, they know taxpayers will be footing the bill. Not them. We need more educated citizens and more cops that respect individual rights.

St. Louis police beat the tar out of a handcuffed man, prosecutors know about it, and cover it up.
