Bad Cops

Another Video of cops being wrong. Poor woman. But what people don't know is that this kind of thing happens all the time. Some police think they are above the law, and can do anything they want. It happened to me once. I hope like hell this woman is able to sue the shit of them...and wins!!

Woman Shot, Police Laugh about it

A crowd of Miami storm troopers shot an unarmed woman — twice. Then they joked and laughed about it. They also referred to innocent citizens as “scurrying cockroaches”.
An innocent Ohio woman was non-sexually gang raped by a group of cops and left naked for hours in her cell (AKA “strip searched”).

Honest, good police deserve everyones respect for doing a difficult job. But there is a dangerous trend occurring in this country that only seems to be getting worse. More and more limits are being placed on our civil and Constitutional rights while our police forces are simultaneously becoming more militarized.

Pointless and often brutal police state tactics include the tasing of our fellow citizens at the drop of a hat, which have sometimes resulted in the death of the victims — er, I mean “suspects”. This is nothing less than an instant death penalty of sorts, but without formal charges or a trial. Sadly, these incidents may be only the beginning if this trend continues. If it can happen to these people, it can happen to any of us.
