Two more police officers have been shot in the line of duty. That makes 3 killed by gunfire, 4 killed with cars, and 2 more remain in critical condition after being shot. That is JUST this year and it's ONLY January. When is enough, enough? When will the rest of us get tired of our "front line" being killed because of the job they do and the uniform they wear? The time is long past due for "we the people" to decide that criminals should NOT be mollycoddled, their rights encased in solid gold while ours and those of police officers are trampled under the feet of the unwashed social justice warriors, and felons roam our streets after being released for "good behavior" or overcrowding. The time has come to re-address our juvenile justice system and stop treating teenagers who rob, maim, and kill as "children". I have been surrounded by cops my entire life beginning with my beloved grandfather. Now my husband and my son wear the uniform and I can say with full assurance that I have never known- NEVER- a police officer whose only reason for the job was to be a "fascist". ALL those I know are men and women who go to work every day knowing that politicians and soggy-brained activists have effectively handcuffed THEM and that they could be killed for doing their duty. They go, every day, knowing that they are the only thing, weakened as they are, that stands between us and the "Purge". We are becoming prisoners in our homes by those who prey on us. They know that murdering cops and innocent people will only get them some light prison time in these social clubs we call jails. When will we decide that those who commit crimes, ESPECIALLY the killing of police officers, must be treated accordingly? If they will kill a cop for rolling up on them while they are breaking into cars (Birmingham), how easy is it for them to kill US while breaking into our homes? When do we get tired of greedy lawyers turning our justice system into a game and re-writing the Constitution? When do we get tired of the media turning thugs into heroes and "children", i.e. Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin? Re-instate the death penalty, hold lawyer-fed deal making to strict guidelines (start regulating the regulators), don't release- BUILD. More, and more secure, prisons, without gyms, without tvs, without cellphones and without socializing with your homies (read: gangs). I prefer more guards to more felons running free. You hate cops? Then don't get pulled over while driving drunk or dirty. Don't beat your old lady. Make sure your plates are up to date and you are insured. Don't deal. Don't be a jerk. Get a bruise on your silky pelt while being arrested? Don't fight and resist. Don't run thinking you can get away. Our courts should not even ENTERTAIN lawsuits launched by greedy family members who think their dead family member is better than winning the lottery. Maybe I am not the only one who DOESN'T CARE what color you are, or that you are a (6'4, 280lb) "child". I DON'T CARE. I am tired of seeing long police funeral lines, and heartbroken families. I am TIRED of perps and their families and their arrogant enablers.
I agree...most of it depends on the locale. Chicago, New York etc are beyond redemption but the United States is a different matter. And the media...what a god-awful institution.
Then don’t read it, “dear”. Since you have nothing to add to the conversation, why not go and chase some other car?
None, according to the Constitution. It’s that simple. And once a felon, when he/she didn’t give a ratsa$$ about YOUR rights, gets their rights in court, has received his rights and is now sentenced, then I.DON’T. CARE. As long as he/she is fed 3 times a day and gets to sleep on a cot I’m good. NO right to cable TV, NO right to cell phones, NO right to socialize with his peers, and NO right to fight with the guards.
If I may present ONE case that shows the “game” and the monkeying around with evidence by the defense- nothing illustrates it better than the OJ Simpson trial.
LOL! I just went to my back door and yelled a big AMEN out the back!
A true VietVet? Then thank you for your service...many years too late.
I'm hosed now, for sure.
“...but ANY dog coming at you is considered a threat..!”
Oh really? Better get over that! Are they taught to be robots at the academy? No discretionary or judgement sense whatsover? ANY dog?
> Problem is they have created an atmosphere where its them against everyone else. Everyone else is treated like the lowest common denominator. <
You make a good point. A police officer has a very complicated job. Part of that very complicated job is public relations. And that part seems to have fallen by the wayside.
When I say “good morning” to my mailman, I get a “good morning” back. When I say “good morning” to a local police officer, I get silence. Is that a big deal? Actually, it is.
Anyone with a brain could have probably deduced that I DIDN'T read anything they wrote at the time that I informed them that I CAN'T read anything they wrote.
So I can only assume that you do not have a brain.
That might not go over well with the mods.

Lol. Rampart scandal. Jeez. The list of cops planting evidence is endless. Do you live in a vacuum?
I was rolling through the thread to see if anyone posted what you posted... If I didn’t see it, I would post it.
We have a serious issue in this country with our enforcement officials at all levels - not just the PD.
Enforcement should be better than this. It should affect us less. When you see a cop, you shouldn’t get a sinking feeling in your gut that sh!t is about to go down.
The NFL football players are happy....
I didn’t think it’s unusual, at first, but now I feel I should knock on wood LOL!
Where have all the flowers gone....
He hates vanities.
He picks on people who do vanities. Ignore it. It’s not just you. If you hear from Jim, on the other hand...knock off the vanities.
