the Police are on a streak
It doesn't matter if you are preacher , a cop's lie will hold more force , oh and a cop has immunity from prosacution when lieing on the stand and you don't . Even if the outher cop's know he is lieing to protect him self they will back him up . Side note , How do you know when someone is in a street gang????? Think about it , they wear the same clouth's they have secart "cod'es " and they back up eatch outher up even when that one is wrong , I think we should do something about gang's
I wouldn't trust a cop if he was related to me. They are all a bunch of thug-killers in my opinion!
This goes back, in the US, to nineteen sixty-eight, to My first-hand knowledge. <br />
The Ludlow Massacre, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludlow_Massacre, was an important part of the history of killers getting off. It precedes the nineteen thirty-four General Strike, by twenty years.
Hell yes it's a trend! It's way worse in the US. We just had a case - a young black man was killed by an Oakland, CA transit cop - the trial ended a couple of weeks ago and they cop got involuntary manslaughter (2-4 year possible sentence). The murdered guy was on his stomach, hands cuffed behind his back, with 2 cops sitting on him. The cop shot him in the back of the head - said he thought he was reaching for his tazer. And here's the really bad part - this is the first time in over 20 years there's been a conviction of any kind for a cop.<br />
UPDATE: Yeah, the conviction is a positive step forward. But they were going for 2nd degree murder. If the guy had been white and the cop black, or both white - wonder how it would have turned out.
Peza, its not just in custody we only have to look at the brutal attaching by Police of peaceful protesters
In Australia, 1000 deaths doesn't even begin to address the aboriginal deaths in custody !
I agree with Soursweet, it is a difficult job. However, they must be held accountable for their actions, just like everyone else.
It must be hard to be dealing with crime all day, some can't take it, some entered the police with personal issues already, just looking for a feeling of power.
Oh boy yes...
Grand old boys some of those cops are, above the law.
And my grandfather and his brothrrs were cops of course ympteen yrs ago.
