In some cases police officers are good descent people. But majorities I’ve seen [and I was one for a while] think their gods with a gun and a badge. I’ve backed a few down in my time.

Cops, criminals. How can anyone tell the difference when thugs like these two Oregon creeps are running around the place? Probation? Community Service?
This low life should be behind bars for threatening to illegally incarcerate two women. He should be treated much more harshly than a regular citizen because he had the ability to shoot to kill.
Cops, of all stripes, are never to be trusted.
Portland police officer John Wood resigned Monday after pleading guilty to two criminal counts of official misconduct stemming from a July encounter in which he asked two young women to lift their skirts for him to avoid going to jail.
Standing in Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Jean Kerr Maurer’s sixth-floor courtroom Monday afternoon, Wood said little but “Yes, your Honor” in a soft voice. He spent almost the entire half-hour hearing looking straight ahead. His attorney, Mike Staropoli, spoke to him several times, but Wood stayed quiet, his mood seeming to match his dark, drab suit.
The victims were present with family members and a Spokane civil attorney, John Allison. One of the victims, who asked Portland police not to release their names, had her say in the courtroom, reading from a written statement from the witness stand. Every time she sees a badge or a uniform, she said,“I can’t breathe and I start to feel nauseous.”
“You have been the monster under my bed, haunting me,” she told Wood, adding later,“I hope that some day in the near future I can go a full 24 hours without spending one minute thinking about that night.”
Kerr Maurer told the woman she spoke eloquently and powerfully.
“I think, frankly, that no one can say it any better than the victim just did,” the judge said.
As the victims left the courtroom, Wood’s wife hissed epithets at them as she held the door open while they passed her by. Out in the hallway, Wood’s mother blamed the young women for the ill fortune befalling her son. The young women’s faces flushed, and both started crying before Allison led them up a staircase and away from Wood’s family.
When Wood left the courtroom on his way to having a county booking photo taken, he did not even twitch when asked to comment, walking briskly down the stairs with his wife and lawyer.
Wood faced a maximum two years in jail and $13,500 in fines for the misdemeanor counts he stood accused of. Kerr Maurer sentenced him to two years of bench probation, 100 hours of community service, immediate resignation from the Portland Police Bureau, the immediate surrendering of his Oregon police certification, and writing apology letters to his victims.
“This is the best outcome for everybody,” Senior Deputy District Attorney Donald Rees said. This guy lost his job – and it’s not a job at Subway or something where you can walk in with an application and get hired the same day. John Wood is never going to be a police officer anywhere ever again, and Portlanders can feel good about that.”
The case is similar to the pending criminal investigation of Multnomah County sheriff’s deputy Christopher Green. A number of women between ages 23 and 43 came forward beginning in 2004 accusing Green of having them lift their shirts, unfasten their bras or unzip their pants as he looked for a flower tattoo.
An initial sheriff’s office investigation in late 2004 and early 2005 found that there were no suspects matching that description and that Green lied to at least one supervisor when questioned about his actions.
Green remains on paid administrative leave while Sheriff Bernie Giusto tries to revoke his police certification, which would cost him his job.
