I'm a democrat but at it's still good at times to drink liberal tears.
Since it's usually them that most critical of law enforcement. Though the police system isn't perfect, they usually get more hate than the criminals.

You know what gives me a headache? Trying to figure out, as a non-American, why using 'conservative' or 'liberal' all the time is appropriate and how it even makes sense.

I mean, let's make a comparison between the two and for argument's sake base it purely on what funnyjunk tends to say:
Conservatives are against big government, against abortion, against public health care, against high taxes and government spending, against gay marriage, while they support most things constitutional, the right to bear arms, the death penalty and personal freedom.

Liberals on the other hand support big government, are pro-choice, pro-public health care, want high taxes with responsible government spending for those less fortunate, support gay marriage, and are against literal interpretation of the Constitution, support gun control, are against the death penalty and believe the government should ascertain equality for all individuals, sometimes at the expense of economic freedom if necessary.

Do you realise how ridiculous that sounds in proportion to how widely and frivolously these terms are used? They're both the worst kind of generalising terms. I honestly don't see how they serve any useful purpose, because all they seem to do is to increase confusion, generalisation, prejudice and conflict. It's just such a black and white way of thinking. A person can support all 'conservative' ideals and not identify as conservative, or they might support half, or maybe all except one, or someone might do the same with 'liberal' beliefs. Are they still a conservative or a liberal? Hearing people talk, it seems they are, no matter what they agree or disagree with. It's just absurd to insist on labelling people's opinions like that, in my opinion, and I do not understand it.

To demonstrate, here is a picture. As you can see, there's more than red and blue in the picture yet the line is still stubbornly cut right down the middle. That's how people seem to insist on seeing it.

On one hand I approve of this message and on the other I don't.

As a police officer, or any member of the state that has a job of enforcing law, you are to be held to the absolute highest standard, higher than your average citizen; so it is only right we scrutinize officers more than we do punks or other civilians. It's the same way you'd expect a doctor to take their own medicine, or a fire-chief to not let their house catch on fire. Yes everyone makes mistakes and is only human, but if it's your JOB to enforce the law, it's not a good message when you can't even follow it.

However, I also believe cops get a far harder time than they should. They get dehumanized when they do their jobs wrong, and even worse, they get dehumanized when they do it right. They literally deal with some of the worst society has to offer on a day to day basis, and after a while the **** and stress and strain starts to pile up, and so it's only expected they'll get a chuckle out of accidentally banging your head on the roof of their car. Seriously, it's no different than calling a virgin a whore or an honest man a thief; if you are going to scream insults no matter what they do, they might as well earn the title.

The difference is that police men and women are held to a higher standard than the average citizen. It is their duty to protect and serve at all costs and they are given the authority and power to do so. However, when they begin to abuse this authority and use excessive force or break in to people's homes without warrants or stop and search people for no reason, there is something wrong.

My biggest frustration is the attitude of the authorities when a case of police brutality is brought to light. The officers are rarely more than disciplined and the whole thing is usually covered up if possible.

Don't believe me? Look at the recent Kelly Thomas verdict and tell me that police aren't being protected from the law above the average citizen.

Being a riot police in South Korea for two years...

I say I saw my share of police brutality. People know this.

What I also saw was "peaceful protesters" swinging lead pipes at us. This, people don't know.

After being arrested the other day, I began to mouth off to the cop, who promptly slammed me to the ground, resulting in a trip to the hospital for injuries to my chin and knee.

On the affidavit, he claimed that I was 'resisting arrest' and trying to pull away. With no civilian witnesses, who do you think the judge believed?

So you can go **** yourself, you authoritarian piece of **** .

Whenever I see those " **** those pigs we don't need them" messages I just wonder how these people plan on being able to protect themselves. One kid on my Facebook constantly insults police and he can't even handle himself in a fair fight, so I'd like to see how any of them actually take on a criminal intent on robbery/murder/rape/theft.

Not all cops are good. And not all cops are bad. Just like not everybody is good. And not everybody is bad. Cops are people too, dammit. They have personalities. Bad or good. That's what people need to get through their stupid thick ******* skulls.

More people should film cops. To catch them in their illegal acts, and to provide evidence of innocent cops. But you will probably get arrested, yelled at, or hurt. It's up to you citizen. Don't be a bitch.

I see nothing wrong with this. The police do need to be monitored so that police brutality can be documented, and such civilians should be allowed to unobtrusively film on-duty officers. But the officer isn't doing anything illegal other than giving a stern talking to to this punk. So what good are the videos going to do? Prove that the cop is able to use his words instead of just arresting the kid for verbal harassment?

When the cop starts beating him on the ground and tasering him without considering the law of equal force and measure, THEN the camera phones become real useful.

Like the NSA says, if you're not doing anything wrong, what's wrong with being monitored?

Studies does indicate tho, that when the police is being officially filmed (for documentaries/tv-shows/etc) the complain-rate against them is dropped as far as 80% (depending on the region/country), which is kinda frightning imo.
Because either people blatanly lie about the police, or the police does something wrong

either way it's ****** up

There was a case nearby in Dallas where someone taped the police telling a mentally handicapped man to freeze. He stopped and dropped everything in his hands and stood there and they still shot him in the gut. They tried to lie about it, but the video evidence showed everything.

That's police brutality.

The pussy version of police brutality is when the cops hit you back for throwing **** at them.
