Every profession has bad apples. Doctors, teachers, lawyers, clergy, sales etc...It is so easy to bash the police, but all of you posters with your smart remarks would most definately call them when in need. How many of us would risk our lives for 25-35 thousand a year. I am not at all defending this mans actions, but simply pointing out that just because you got a speeding or parking ticket does not give you the right to bash a group of men and women that protect the public. I simply obey the laws and do not have to deal with overbearing or agressive cops. Why do you people have so much contact with them.
You're in total wonderland. Id explain but I doubt youd give a dam anyway. Maybe Id just bet you 1000 bucks everything you believe is a lie? Would you go for that?

It goes to show you that police are no different then the rest of the criminals out there they just sometimes get away with it an in this case the chief got what he deserves. Maybe the state need to look at police and get background checks on them as well before they become offiers even chiefs.
Your right Police are people to and there are good and bad just like any other profession in the world. If you knew or had common sense all Police have background checks during their course of Academy before being allowed to go through the Police Academy and any Police Agency with common sense does a background on all their prospective hires along with lie detector tests, physical, and you are required to do a mental health evaluation.

Actually thats not true, cops are not people. If they were then they arent for long after being a cop. They keep secrets from their own relatives and spouses about things they do and actually live in denial themself. Thats why the change is hard to see. The job itself makes them oblivious to actual right and wrong, actual right and wrong are Gods 613 laws compared to mans 10's or 100's of thousands. When they act against someone who did nothing against Gods law they act against God and they become more and more "demon posessed."

Way too many are greedy, unethical A-HOLES on power and ego trips
It isn't just one department. They are the same everywhere. Get a little power and they think it gives them the right to abuse.
