The police are given power and authority over the citizens, therefore more is expected of them. This dude yelling at the cop is being a dick while the cop is abusing his power and the trust of the people.

the first sentence of that is correct... but the cop reacting to the guy getting in his face is not an abuse of power and it sure shouldn't be affecting "the trust of the people"

cops don't get paid that much and as such aren't always going to deal with all of your **** - don't go out of your way to **** with them

Yes yes i'm going to probably downvotet, called an edgy guy but whatever, i'd like to tell you some **** :
since almost 1.5 year i'm now and anti faschist demonstrant for several topics (social stuff like the refugees in europe, anti-repression, anti-nazi stuff etc.).
In most (not everytime but most, i'll be honest here) the police did have a escalation strategiy so we won't be able to walk the full demonstration path. But thats not everything.

I saw plenty police officers beating the **** out of (peacful, not even mummed) demonstrants an older women getting a ******** of pepper spray in her face etc. pp

some stuff:
Think about your past - police brutality against refugee sit-in Refugee gets beaten so he'd bleed (sit-demonstration)

Berlin Polizeigewalt/ Police Brutality kottbusser tor 1. mai (police officer is peppering people without a reason, as he sees the camera guy he want to catch him)

When i may give you some tips: don't always listen to mass media, get your own infomations over (trustworthy) blogs for example from freelancing journalists/fotographs etc.

cheers

False. All this is saying is that sometimes we don't know the full story. Actually, most of the time we don't know the full story.

Yeah. The other day i saw this film-clip of a policeman and -woman, saying to a dude, that his dog problably is illegal to own, due to the new dog-laws in Denmark, and that they had to take the dog to the vet, to get it checked, if it was illegal.
The dude began to break completely down, crying etc, and the policefolk gave him a little time to say goodbye to the dog, and also let him take the dogs gag(is it called that?) off, but he had to get it on after saying goodbye.

The comments of that vid, was crazy. People saying that the police are scumbag who should die, and are abusing their power.

When i responded, saying that the police only were doing their job, people were shouting(Caps) at me, saying that they should keep a blind eye on it, and let the dude walk.


I don't understand the hate on the police..

what do you mean he's not a robot? why shouldn't i be able to poke at him with no consequences? why should another human being be allowed to make mistakes when he's in uniform?

For some reason we insist on holding those who are armed with the express purpose of protecting us to be held to a higher standard than our teenage punks. Weird, right?

"In some cities police officers were required to wear a camera in order to document their interactions with civilians. In these areas, public complaints against officers dropped by 88%. Police officers also used force nearly 60 percent less often — in 25 instances, compared with 61. When force was used, it was twice as likely […]"

No, I'm not a ******* liberal hippie just because I'm posting sources. In fact, I was a Military Police officer. For four years I served as a Master-At-Arms military police officer and anti-terrorism unit, and I'm trying to go back in and serve more in that capacity. I can personally tell you that neither me or anyone I know engaged in police brutality, but we also both

1. Lived on a base with 1,000 cameras everywhere

and

2. Were in the military, an organization where everyone has to have a background check to join.

So I personally can't really tell you what would happen if our trysts with criminals came about a bit more often in a less televised area. I can tell you that morality and ethics is part of military creed, and is drilled into our head not only in basic training, but also throughout our military career. For example (cont.)

A Policeman is a composite of what all men are, mingling of a saint and sinner, dust and deity.

Gulled statistics wave the fan over the stinkers, underscore instances of dishonesty and brutality because they are "new". What they really mean is that they are exceptional, unusual, not commonplace.

Buried under the frost is the fact: Less than one-half of one percent of policemen misfit the uniform. That's a better average than you'd find among clergy!

What is a policeman made of? He, of all men, is once the most needed and the most unwanted. He's a strangely nameless creature who is "sir" to his face and "fuzz" to his back

He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won.

But...If the policeman is neat, he's conceited; if he's careless, he's a bum. If he's pleasant, he's flirting;if not, he's a grouch.

He must make an instant decision which would require months for a lawyer to make.

But...If he hurries, he's careless; if he's deliberate, he's lazy. He must be first to an accident and infallible with his diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and, above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp. Or expect to be sued.

The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn't hurt.He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being "brutal". If you hit him, he's a coward. If he hits you, he's a bully.

A policeman must know everything-and not tell. He must know where all the sin is and not partake.

A policeman must, from a single strand of hair, be able to describe the crime, the weapon and the criminal- and tell you where the criminal is hiding.

people need to understand the escilation of force principle. if force is used on an officer he is allowed to meet or exceed the opposing force as necessary.

I find that most of the time police are actually pretty cool guys so long as you treat them like people instead of some terrible goal to ruin your life on a personal level, and with honesty and respect.   
   
Hell, 99% of the times you're getting in trouble with them you're doing something you probably shouldn't have anyways. They're just doing their job and that's fine by me.   
And in all the times I've gotten busted for something I've gotten out of more than half of them just because I was cool with the cop.   
   
 inb4 somebody calls me a spineless old lady or something

She got what she deserved, she assaulted an officer with detergent, the video supplied doesn't have when the woman actually spewed the chemical on the officers.

She was clearly warned, so I don't see what the problem is, not sure why he even gave the warning.

This kind of video illustrates exactly what the content was about, we only hear the cop sounding like an asshole with very little other information, about how the "peaceful" protester behaved.

okay except in like the last 50 cases of police brutality the police were fully armed and the civilians were not . Not to mention police are supposed to be held to a higher standard not a lower one. Like the female police officer who crushed a teen boys testicles and castrated him because one of his friends with him called her a fat pig.

Maybe it's just because where I live, but I feel I'm the only one who likes cops.
I know so many people who hate cops because they gave them tickets for doing illegal things.
"This ******* cop gave me a ticket for going 20 over! ******* pigs!"
There are even people who teach their kids to hate cops and to not trust them.
I personally love the fact that cops exist. If you just follow the damn laws you'll be fine.
It's kind of too bad that there are enough bad cops to warrant hate.
