    No thanks.

    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

    Officer shooting deaths by year:
    2009: 47
    2010: 59
    2011: 68
    2012: 48
    2013: 31
    2014: 47
    2015: 7 (on pace for 21)

    1974: 140

    The probability of an officer shooting death is lower than ever. When the police say they are under fire, they don't mean by criminals. They're referring to public criticism and they're trying to garner sympathy.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    yes, i thought it was understood the title was in reference to criticism. and if you watched the show, it presented both sides of the issue, not just that of law-enforcement.

    It's just a few bad apples.

    Chicago agrees to pay $5.5m to victims of police torture in 1970s and 80s

    From 1972 through 1991, Burge and officers under his command tortured more than 100 African Americans, largely in impoverished sections of Chicago’s South Side, in a systematic regime of violence and intimidation.

    Men in custody were subjected to electric shocks, burns and mock executions, among other brutal acts, predominantly in order to extract confessions.

    Burge ran a group of rogue detectives known as the Midnight Crew who led the violence.

    There are allegations that officers used suffocation on those in their custody and forced men to play “Russian roulette”.

    Burge was fired in 1993 but was never charged with crimes directly stemming from the violence before the statute of limitations ran out. He was convicted in 2010 of obstruction of justice and perjury, in relation to a civil lawsuit alleging that he tortured citizens. He subsequently served four and a half years in prison before being released in 2014, and continues to draw a police pension.

    From the NBC NY link:
    One of the officers swore after the fact in a complaint that Disisto lunged at him, swinging at him with a closed fist. Disisto's lawyer argued that this account was inconsistent with a video taken of the incident. Eventually, all charges against Disisto were dropped.
    Really?


    So, uh.
    Alexis Karteron, a senior attorney with the New York Civil Liberties Union who represents a woman who, like Disisto, was falsely arrested for videotaping police activity, says better training is needed.

    There is very little in the police training manual about how to respond when a bystander records an encounter, Karteron said. She pointed out that when many officers were trained, cellphone video cameras were not nearly as commonplace as they are now.
    Opinions on what training would actually accomplish? Seeing a big fat nothing from over here.
