Most of the "we" you speak of are ignorant people who have no grasp of what's valuable and what is not. Nobody in their right mind thinks a sports hero should be held to a higher standard. Mainly because nobody in their right mind (beyond kids) would put a sports hero on a pedestal. To put a athlete and a public officer in the same category is laughable at best.

Yes, I expect more from cops, doctors, and politicians. Yes I think there should be a higher standard from these people while doing their jobs. If you don't understand why that should be, I'm not sure what to tell you. I think it would be clear on how valuable those professions are to the public and the amount of lives at stake with the powers these positions hold.

Re: What's up with the cops these days?

This is the standard I speak of. The system is corrupt. It has been and will continue as long as we allow it. It's not just the cops, it's the judges as well. Here we have a judge who finds a officer "not guilty" of police brutality because she refused to allow the video as evidence.

Judge Finds Cop Not Guilty of Assault after Refusing to Watch Video of Assault - | Intellihub.com


This is your ****ing judicial system at work here. One that's keeping the crimes against the population under wraps. One that's ignoring the laws of the land to exercise their own justice in the way they see fit.



Listen to the police union douchebag say how video shouldn't be used against cops.

Here we have cops shooting a innocent woman, and then lying about the incident. Claiming to have his arm rolled up in the window, a witness who saw the whole thing says otherwise.

Re: What's up with the cops these days?

I believe we're in an "it's your job" argument. However, I also feel that way about the military. The military is a great way to get an education and some amazing experience with some cutting edge technology. I understand and respect the sacrifices the military folks make, but it's part of job that is well known. The military opens up some incredible opportunities for those who pursue a career there. You get a chance to travel the world, get a heavily subsidized education, and hands on experience with some cutting edge technologies. After the military, it's also to get placed into the market. We have someone who has a full-time job as the former-military liaison to recruit them to our company. I've seen a lot of military guys come in for positions they were not qualified for simply because of that background.

The reason why the negative things come up is because that's what gets reported. Saying "Policeman does his job" isn't really great news. I don't want to read that, neither than you. There are the occasional stories that highlight those that go above and beyond, but those are relatively rare. Most cops are great people with good intentions, but a few bad apples spoil the bunch.

I suppose it's because we don't have a "kudos to cops" thread that comments here (I'm sure many without knowing the full story of what happened) stand out.

Perhaps it's because of the negative nature of the majority of the threads in this forum but it seems like a lot of people here are anti "The Man" to somewhat absurd extremes. Or I could just be making assumptions, probably am.

That said, I don't really buy the "it's your job" argument. Yes, they've chosen to put themselves in a position of danger at nearly any given moment. But, and I know this may upset some, but people willingly join the military and are lauded as heroes, yet it seems to me police officers often aren't.

Again, very sorry for your family's loss

Yes, one police officer who was convicted of voluntary manslaughter for what he did.
