    I love this video. It depicts how everything isn't always as it appears at first glance. Had the store owner not filmed what took place at the first encounter, it'd appear as just some bullshit cover up story by the cops "he tried to take my gun, so we used batons!"

    WOW.
    You have to be kidding me.
    You think anyone who is disturbed by police misconduct in this country is a criminal?

    And you're the one saying I'm creating the us v. Them mentality.





    I'm just saying, there's very little appreciation but no shortage of people that jump at the opportunity to crucify a police officer.
    It's just not true that the police aren't appreciated. They might not feel appreciated, but that's because of the nature of their job and the fact that in most situations people aren't going to be appreciative of being forced to interact with them (pull overs, court appearances, etc.)

    Some police officers deserve to be crucified. Any good cop should be the first to crucify a bad one as it's their fault if the police have a bad rep not people starting threads on the Internet.

    Seriously this is the epitome of shoot the messenger.

    I wouldn't call him a criminal. He made a snap decision, one you'll likely never have to make because you are not in that role/position. It turned out to be the wrong decision, but does that make it inherently criminal? Should there be some form of repercussion for shooting a man that turns out to be innocent, yes, but it's also a gray area when as a police officer you're trained in a tactical manner and are always surveying for danger signs. Monday morning quarterbacking it's more than simple to call that officer an idiot. But when you're the law officer and understand that there are people out there that want/will kill you it changes how you approach each encounter with a citizen. If I'm approaching someone that I am encountering for the first time on a traffic stop and they quickly dive back into their vehicle for something you can guarantee my hand is at least headed towards my firearm.

    That's not what I said. Perhaps, I misunderstood what you said. Maybe you can explain what you meant by this:
    "I'm pretty sure the police (and swamp-load of unnecessary crimes) created the Us v. Them mentality."

    It's easy to critique from the comfort of your reclining chair, but when it's your life on the line and you realize that any encounter could potentially become this, the public would have more understanding. Even when a mistake is made, there would be more understanding and not the impulse to jump to disdain and hatred without understanding the facts and all the components.

    Not all cops are bad. Lots of cops are good. Cops face dangerous situations. Got it.

    The real question is if "good" cops refuse to hold bad cops accountable are they really good cops?

    No, they're not. Absolutely not.

    Put way too simply: Cops are around to keep all of us accountable to standards of conduct. That includes one another.
