What are you, six years old? Tell your mommy that I said you've been playing to much Grand Theft Auto, it's starting to spoil your brain. By the way, pay more attention in school. So that you won't look like an idiot when you post.

officers actions, the officers' family that has to deal with it, the depression the second guessing. It does change lives and it use of force is " drilled into your head" in academy and subsequent training as it is the biggest source of risk for the officer, agency and city. PS, use spell check in the future.
1. Private persons are not "sworn" to up-hold the
"The Constitution" hence, The Bill of Rights.
1st, 2nd, 4th., 5th., 6th, and 14th Amenedments
is what all our dead soldiers died for.
2. Acorn was backed by law enforement,
via Janet Reno when she made threats to the banks, for not loaning monies to people who did not have employment, nor funds.
3. The deputies need to know how to use stinger sticks.(spike sticks). They throw down in one piece. Not in pieces, as in thumb tacks.
(for obvious reasons.)
They need more training...
Affirmative action people lacks common sense.
35 yrs later, we have a defective product in vital positions.
They admitted it, because no third party was available to blame. Plus, they were drunk.
A daily urine test is in order for all PBSO.
As far as the taze. I'm an old guy.
I have 5 generations of NYC cops.
All through since (1832)
As in copper,
as in what the bages used to be made of.
I have a copper badge in my collection of family history.
My dad, also a policeman, as they used to be called, used to leave the house with a 38 cal.(No Vest)
and his wit. Cops back then used their heads.
Common sense was important back then.
Back then, it was cops a robbers.
Now days they look like the muppets, not cops.
Fat ones, short ones, out of shape ones.
Now, its cops and the deadbeat dads, the cops and the mailman, the cops and the old lady, the cops and who ever they want to pick on.
My dad caught 2 bank robbers on 95 in the Bronx
by himself. 22000.00 back in the day,
the was a lot of money
He draged a sniper, down a building after the sniper shot to fellow officers.
He draged a gunman out of an office after the said gunman killed all of his co-workers.
He did all of this, with a 38cal., common sense, and no vest.
The local law enforcement has become an overkill tactical agencies, couple that with a system that allows repeat offenders on the street,
via the S.A. and you have a zest pool, where you don't "really" know whose worst,
the cops, or the robbers.
It used to be cut and dry... No grey areas.
I miss the good ol" days. Things are so fuzzy now.

Just for some of u racist ediots info ruben debrosse never backed up a car into the deputy, and the car was never stolen, the police lied and now they are trying to cover it up, they claimed the dash board camera on the police patrol car wasn't working the time of the shooting, but mysteriously it was working the day before. And witnesses were threatened by law inforcement if they spoke. Ruben was murdered. He was a 16 year old boy who NEVER had a criminal record and never been to jail. Y'all are racist beyond belief

I heard the car ruben was in was a rental car and it wasn't stolen. The palm beach county sheriff's office is racist. Especially rick Bradshaw. They gona burn in hell for what they did to that teenage boy
