Thats just f^cked up
As much as I try to teach my kids to respect authoirty, it gets harder and harder these days. Should I teach them to be scared of the police? Should I teach them to be a lemming and let go of their rights? Or should I just roll the dice they don't one day get gunned down by some young punk wearing a badge that makes him consumned by the power not humbled by the responsability? This makes me sick.
Thats just f^cked up
Trying like hell to live the dream,Nomad
This is sad. It is amazing how scum are aloud to remain on this planet and good people are removed. Sometimes this world, and especially this country, make no sense!
Wow! What a shame! That fool needs to be put down. Cops always think they are better then the rest of us. I know because I have some in my family
I think you guys may want to look into that 2010 shooting a little deeper than the propaganda link. I believe that the Coroner's Inquest jury found the shooting justified. I also think the family dropped their lawsuit against the agency. I also think one officer involved was later fired and convicted of a crime in an unrelated event.
I think it is good to teach your kids to know and respect local law enforcement. They may need them someday.
Cops are like any other profession. Some are better than others. Some get in the career for the right reasons, others don't.
My dad retired this January after 38 years of dedicated service. I am proud of him. I will finish my 10th year of sworn duty this August. I am proud of what I do. The vast majority of those I have worked with have dedicated their lives to doing the right thing. They have also endured being painted by the broad brush because of the poor choices and bad behavior of just a few. The good cops out there are just as happy to see the bad apples plucked from the barrel as the general public.
I haven't posted about my profession on this site until now. It can be a distraction from what this forum is for, and that is hunting, but I thought I would put my .02 in.
So much for holding it close to the chest huh bb?
This shooting happened a while ago like bb said, both parties are not innocent IMO. There were errors on both sides obviously. It sucked it ended this way. Lvmpd have always been known for being a little trigger happy and I would too if I lived in that craphole. It's dangerous and they want to go home at night like the rest of us.
Tell your dad congrats, that is one heck of a long career. Thank you.
Everyone is human. It is to bad that some make mistakes that should not have been made.
BB, you have my respect. A tough job with rewards too few and far in between.
BB, you definitely have my respect also!
It's just like everything else in the world basically, there's always the bad apples that ruin it for everyone else. I have two cops in my family and they both wanted go into the profession because they wanted to make things safer for their families and everyone else.
It is a sad story. Its no coincidence that valuable evidence was suddenly unavailable. Seems that everytime its in their favor the evidence in that shop is there. When its against them, its not. Go back and do some public information research. That shop is as dirty as the city they patrol.
I hope never myself to have to face what that man and his wife had to that day.
I hunt because......
