    Give me a gun and the right to use it, and you can fire the cops, I`ll protect myself.

    Police are not there to help or to protect you. "Keep The Peace" is the mission statement. They are there to keep you in line. They are not concerned with right or wrong, nor with "Justice" - that`s for the courts to decide. They just keep YOU in line. And they are not above any action or rights violation to do it.

    This is probably one of the biggest reasons I don`t respect cops. All citizens should be held equally in the eyes of the law, yet some - especially cops - are more equal than others.

    Hell, there was a video on here a few months back of a news story about a cop pulling over another cop for speeding. The very fact that this was news worthy is disgusting.

    (And before the comments, I show cops respect. Not because I respect them, but because of fear)

    He says "constitution" a whole lot. IMO it somewhat takes away from his credibility. However he still makes a good point.

    he says "constitution" a lot because he`s trying to make a point. That point is: The "constitution" is important. Also, the "contitution" has recently been ignored while creating policy. Lastly, if you are someone whose profession has you swear an oath to uphold the "constitution" and then you proceed to violate said "constitutional" oath, then you do not deserve that position. Constitution.

    I think it`s safe to assume that the ratio is not 90/10. Flip that number and you`re looking more accurate. I`ve only met two cops in my life that haven`t tried to abuse their power (that I know of).

    Of course it took the media, not the people getting mistreated to get something done about this b.s.

    plastinum - "Of course it took the media, not the people getting mistreated to get something done"
    Becuase the media makes more money on graphic imagery than pretty pictures.
    This is America. Money Talks and news corporations are People.

    Well, that`s pretty much spot on. We expect the protestors not the shiv or firebomb the cops because it`s against the law, so the cops (especially) should follow the law too.

    Fat chance of that happening Larry and I think you have the three categories and the numbers in them backwards.

    1st: I`m just glad to see that the NYPD is now acknowledging and acting on malpractice by it`s officers.

    2: Larry is absolutely right, and i don`t think anybody could have worded it better.

    That was a superb take on the situation. I completely agree.
