Just typical law enforcement worldwide. There is police corruption in every town, every county. Crimes by police should carry twice the punishment of a regular citizen and punished by example. It's the type people that seek employment in law enforcement, Damaged by childhood abuse. They were the kids that were pushed around, beaten by other kids. They seek retribution for the guilt they feel from being pushed around. A complete evaluation should be completed by anyone seeking this position. Something other than ( Yeah, hey, I know him and hes ok! They (Police) Lift themselves above the law, They refer to (OTHERS) Not police as civilians. The police at anything less than federal are in fact citizens. It's this illusion to themselves that place them above the law. What most towns and counties need is convicted fellons that have paid their debt to society to be the police of the police. Counteract the retribution. One thing is for sure!!!! Something NEEDS to be done in order to provide strong guidlines for the police.

Let’s remember, police use of excessive force, especially deadly force, corruption and other misconduct hurts everyone – including the police -- in terms of lost cooperation, support and trust – which, in turn, diminishes their effectiveness. That's the reality. Now what? To learn how to confront and prevent it. Follow my blog at .
