Cops are very nearly worshipped in our society. On endless TV shows, in movies, police procedural novels, in the newspapers and on the nightly news, police are usually presented as virtue personified -- as if it's heroic to button up a blue shirt and pin on a badge.

It's not.

What some cops do while wearing the uniform makes them heroes ... and what other cops do, on-duty and off, reveals them as thugs.

So if you're looking for more news of police heroism, you've come to the wrong place. If you want to be told again that the policeman is your friend, that cops are the good guys and robbers are the bad guys, you'll find such reassurance on every newscast around the clock, and on every cop show from Dragnet to CSI: Miami.

This page is for readers brave enough to face facts:

All cops are not heroes and that's a fact, but because of the myth that "all cops are heroes," there's minimal call for disciplining bad cops, and maximal call for "forgiving," and "understanding" the tough work of being a cop. And that's despicable, and terrifying.

Police work is tough, of course. It's among the most difficult jobs in the world, work that deserves our respect. And turning a blind eye toward police misconduct -- allowing crooked, corrupt, outright criminal cops to have long careers in law enforcement -- only makes it more difficult and dangerous for the good cops.

Letting cops get away with crime, or "punishing" police misconduct with long, leisurely paid suspensions, or probation, or sweet deals that allow a policeman's own police record to be expunged, or any of the other special treatments cops typically receive when they're accused of wrongdoing, is assinine and counterproductive.

We'd like to see good cops get a raise, and bad cops held accountable for their crimes. Any other policy is an invitation to savages and brutes -- to button up a blue shirt, pin on a badge, and break the law with impunity.

The corrupt cop AJ Ross is just a part time deputy and not even a real cop. He has a wrecker service and feeds his giant ego as a weekend deputy participating in these holiday type road blocks. In other words, he's a piece of shIt.

"2 How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you,“Violence!” but you do not save? 3 Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrongdoing? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. 4 Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted."

In this passage we see the law (the Torrah), which governed the moral, domestic, and political life is chilled. It is no longer of any force or efficacy, it has become a dead letter. This allows for corruption and abuse of power. It reminds me a lot of our own Constitution and Bill of Rights. The very document designed to ensure our freedoms, and justice, to protect the innocent from government intrusion is now considered a burden. I believe that most judges or any member of government will be honest. However, are you willing to give away your rights to trust that they will? How many people trusted this judge to be righteous and lost their future to his corruption? How many innocent children will be damaged, how many grieving parents watched their child unjustly caged?
