The facts speak for themselves as far as why Americans need to be proactive in protecting themselves against the largest and most heavily armed gang in the USA. Here are three of those facts.
I am the opposite of that my Dad was a cop and a serial wife and child beater (me) hope he is rotting in hell now if there is one. He learned from his peers how to inflict pain with out leaving lasting marks. My uncle was a cop, he got fired for stealing drugs from evidence lockers. Also had relatives of friends who were cops who in their off time would go to bars and pick fights then they would all jump in and beat the hell out of a guy 3 on 1 and show their badges and get away with it. Sure they aren't all bad but there are lots of bad ones.

wow dude sorry to hear that.

This is extremely disturbing: Small Town Cops Impounded Cars from the Poor, Sold Them, Prosecutors Say - NBC News

I gotta agree with you Buffalo. I think usually the "goal" stat you want to see is 5% or less of "bad" or defective police. I think its closer to the high teens across the country.

I found it hilarious. Who knew G1 was a big Glenn Beck fan?


Good job, Giantone...

Glenn Beck is such a idiot. Then again, that's who he's catering to.

If you'd actually listen to him, he's actually one of the most well-educated historians you'll come across. He does his homework whether you like the way he presents it or not.

But, if you prefer the alternative...

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

I honestly don't see how anyone who has at least known a handful of cops on a personal level, could think they are mostly good moral people. First unlike most people blood is not thicker than water with me, so whether the cop was a relative or a friend of a friend I judged them like anyone else. The most honest cop I knew was a friend of a friend. When asked "Dave, why did you become a deputy sheriff?" (He worked intake for holding cells at the courthouse). His answer was, "Where else could I make $90,000 a year to sit on my butt all day long without any skills or education?" The worst guys were the ones who wanted to be cops and could not make it, of those there were two types. Either they were attracted to good pay for no skills or education, or people who had been bullied, or like to bully and wanted power. Not saying real good cops don't exist, but they are the exception to the rule.

That's horrible, no one should live like that. If there's a positive from your situation, it seems to have given you a clarity that some others don't have.

I can't take anyone serious who follows that bird brain.

I actually know quite a few, friends and family included.

My thought is the exact opposite, the truly bad ones are the exception from my experiences.
