Taser them at least. Those dirty filthy worthless pigs love to electrocute people.

Shoot them for that? No way. A beat down and a charge of "resisting."

Remember, they're sociopaths with badges (most of them, in big cities,) not psychopaths with badges. Try to keep things in perspective....

Protect them from what, an obscene gesture? Do you blindfold them before you let them venture into public?

Cops are like any other predator. If you don't want to be targeted as prey, don't do STUPID shit to catch their attention. I have the right to free speech but I don't suggest a white person attending a rap concert and yelling racial slurs at the top of your lungs or a black person going to a goat roper bar dressed in gangbanger and coming on to escorted white chicks. Yernogood will call WHO when he/she is faced with a carjacking or a home invasion? Cops are just an alpha predator in the environment we call our own. They are there to keep the other predators in check. Leave them alone and they will go after something else.

No, they aren't like any other predator. They have badges, and unless caught unambiguously on video are effectively above the law.(And sometimes even unambiguous video isn't enough to convict a law abusing cop.)

The other fallacy of your argument is that cops never direct their sociopathy at innocent parties.

And the above only addresses police abuses related to power mad cops wanting to dominate people. It doesn't reach the many, unique opportunities cops have for financial corruption.

Why would I call the WHO? What are they going to do sing the perpetrator into submission?
