It's a darn good thing that the officers left their bullets in their other shirt pockets

It is getting to be the same ole on going attitude, the police say you have to do what I say, or I will taze you, or take you to jail, it is a wide speread sickness in the police attitudes. Bad officers need to be fired, charges filed, and given double sentences, they are entrusted with the responsibility. when they abuse it they should be held doubly responsible. I wonder how they would like their parents tazed.

Why when the pigs do something wrong do they tell them to stay home but still pay them? They can never pick on people their own size.

Similar to a recent situation in Australia.

Two New Zealanders witnessed a beating and assited the victim. The cops found them onthe spot, tasererd them and arrested them.

They were convicted and returned home with a fresh record.

Never to return to Australia they said.

How can you go through an entire justice system without q's being raised?

Really, really bad lawyers for a start.

C'mon, chief, just man up and admit your crew f***ed up instead of trying to hem and haw and issue a non-apology "apology".

And you wonder why the people don't trust the PoPo....

Whether they are bad officers or not, disobeying them and then not expecting to shot is your own stupidity. Write these officers up when you don't give them justification for what they did...
