    Those abuses of power are outrageous. Policemen or other authorities showing a lack of intelligence/humanity must be punished by...

    So basically, you just judge the powerless and not the powerful.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    You've given police the blanket of many negative attributes, so you decide what/who I am. I'm ok with whatever you decide.

    Nope. You can always explain why you're exceptional.

    I had a few beers with an exceptional cadet last night.

    Anyway, we're not dealing with broad brush strokes we're dealing with what you've specifically said so you can't hide behind that defense.

    I don't care to debate with you. I recall saying any cop abusing their power deserves for those incidents to be investigated and appropriate discipline and charges brought as a result. What more do you want me to say on the topic? You're enticing a debate and imposing a viewpoint that isn't there. I don't condone violating people's rights.

    Listen, I just got off shift and had a long night of raping the weak and shooting whatever moves. I'm tired. I need to rest now.

    And if that's all you said and you mostly stayed out of the discussion that would be fine.

    But that's not what happened.

    As soon as I started bringing up issues of people's rights being violated you started trolling my thread with NOT ALL COPS NOT ALL COPS IT'S A DANGEROUS JOB DON'T JUDGE.

    You give the thread your own slant, I provide mine. Big deal?

    It's not slant. It's two differing views on public scrutiny.
    You appear to not want people with authority to be held up to public scrutiny because of the nature of their job and how that reflects on everyone else in that job. I want all figures of authority to be held up to public scrutiny especially when it appears that the law is not holding them accountable AND their own job is to judge people.

    Nah, this is not the issue I have. I'm simply aware that people's "scrutiny" is often times without important facts and knowledge of circumstances. It is also without any knowledge or experience of the job, including the risks that come with it. Youtube ANY officer involved shooting or use of force and you'll see a countless number of people that believe it's abuse (even when it's completely justifiable and appropriate to training and policy). I'm strongly opposed to ignorance and I think it'd create a lot less of a headache if people could silently form their own opinions and have the maturity to allow all the details and facts to come out through the investigation process before jumping to judgments, bashing and calling all law enforcement "power hungry pigs."

    But I know your modus operandi, you'll twist what I just said into something I didn't for the sake of instigating more argument. And that I have no desire to entertain.

    Bed time!
