When your only tool is a gun, everything looks like a target.

Re: Law and Order 2

Looking at that video I don't think this incident is as egrigious as you make it sound. I am not saying this shooting was justified but Staffordshire Terriers can be quiet dangerous and they were moving close to the officer although not in a manner that I deem threatening.

You talking to me or Namath?

I think he shot the dog(s) because he was afraid. Yeah, that breed can be dangerous, but he shouldn't have those particular dogs.

It's very low on the list of problem incidents in this thread, but shoot first and almost no tolerance for danger to a cop is part of the larger problem.

A woman says Arlington police offered to drop charges against her two teenage sons in exchange for cellphone video she shot that she says shows an officer needlessly pushing her older son to the ground and arresting him.

...

Dominique Alexander, a spokesman for the group, said the boys' mother, Latasha Nelson, alleges that police took her cellphone while making the July 3 arrests and that when she tried to get it back, they offered to drop the charges in exchange for the video.

He said the video was backed up to the cloud, which enabled her to let the group post it online.

The video shows officers taking Nelson's handcuffed 14-year-old son, identified by the family as Trayvon, into custody for questioning about a burglary. As the squad car pulls away with the boy in the back, Nelson asks where they are taking him. The lead officer refuses to tell her and says she's "become uncooperative."

The family's attorney, Kim Cole, said as Nelson continued to ask where her son was being taken, her other son, 16-year-old Broderick, stepped beside her to console her.
Cole said that's when the officer grabbed Broderick, forced him to the ground and arrested him for obstructing police operations.
If you watch the video the officer is clearly escalating the situation. You have a mother is understandably upset that her child is being arrested and instead of empathizing or at least giving her an explanation to try and calm her down the officer calls officers for back up and then arrests her other son who, as far as the video shows, didn't do anything.

The woman was smart to have a cloud backup for her video.

Re: Law and Order 2

Alaska cops need to be able to molest sex workers in order to arrest them (so they can rescue them, of course).

Police punch 5'2 black teen girl after mistaking her for 5'10 black male suspect

Quote:
On the day police stopped Hargrove, officers had been looking for a suspect — described as a 25- to 30-year-old, bald black man standing 5-foot-10 and weighing about 170 pounds — who had threatened several people with a machete at a nearby grocery store, according to a police report.

“She appeared to be a male and matched the description of the suspect that had brandished the machete and was also within the same complex the suspect had fled to,” Christopher Moore, the arresting officer, wrote in his report.
And because of course:

Quote:
According to the police report, Hargrove was arrested for resisting or delaying an officer and aggravated assault on an officer.
Quote:
A Bakersfield police spokesman told The Washington Post he would not comment further on the case but confirmed that the department had determined that the officers had exercised appropriate use of force on Hargrove.

Agreed.
In most of the other incidences posted in this thread the cop should be in jail or fired. I don't think that is the correct result here. The cowardice among police officers is an epidemic that needs to be eradicated though.

So basically don't call the police or you or a loved one will be shot.

Re: Law and Order 2

If I'm ever on a jury I'll never trust evidence that cops just "find" all by themselves with no corroboration.

Re: Law and Order 2

Just sickening to imagine how long these guys have been getting away with this. Like that cop who shot a guy and planted a taser on him.
