SilverThread - "Let the Police all take 1 Month on Furlough. No Cops Anywhere."

Yeah... take all the crime off the streets for a month, then put it back... that ought to make people feel GREAT about having cops around.

You know, I have an idea how to quell all the negative press the Police are receiving.

Let the Police all take 1 Month on Furlough. No Cops Anywhere. Now at the end of that one month period, all of the Police will be glad to be back at work and will surely be on their best behavior and of course those who survive the lawlessness that will ensue, will be ecstatic to have someone around to maintain Law and Order.

Really it's a perfect Plan.

big dratting deal
After the investigation, if he is found guilty of misconduct they can release the name. Just not before he's guilty of it.

Suppose they release the name and he's found innocent?
After his car's been vandalized the News has published his photos and everyone thinks he a scumbag.

this isn't that big of a deal people

Please point out faults in my argument, but it sounds like Seattle didn't reveal identities of office, but that this was against state law. How the hell can police "agree" to do anything, when what they agree on is against the law? Furthermore, how can it be concluded, in court, that they, because of their illegal agreement with themselves, have to stay true to that agreement? That they now can't work according to state law all of a sudden?

If you work for the city you're beholden to the public and public scrutiny. If you want to beat the piss out of someone go work for private security. It should be a contract item for police to know that if they accept a job with the police service they will be under scrutiny since they work for us and our tax dollars pay their salary.

"an officer that makes a mistake, and you know we're all human we're gonna make mistakes; that they could have that just plastered all over the news... ya know to haunt the officer forever. i don't think that's a good idea" -guy from video

soo... he's calling excessive force a "mistake" that could haunt an officer forever? how about we should not be having any officers in place that will make these "mistakes" and misjudgements that can negatively affect so many in the public? how about the citizens that make "mistakes" and "accidentally" assault somebody on the street? what about them? should it be that they don't have to be "haunted" by their actions forever? no. they will have their names blasted everywhere for all the people to see, but we have to protect our always innocent and in the right police force, cuz they are just oh so privileged and need to be protected. this is bullpoo.

a mistake is one thing but clear abuse of authority and excessive force such as kicking a suspect whose already down and given up is not a mistake. all there doing is giving these cops the freedom to be as abusive and corrupt as they want. you let these cops run around doing whatever the drat they want dont you dare ever ask me to feel sorry for them when some gang member kills one of them.

@Gerry1of1- The things that cops get investigated for at work would get them arrested if they were members of other professions. I'm going into nursing. If I'm being suspected of making a medication error, that's one thing. The error would be investigated internally to determine the problem, and I'd get retrained. But if I beat the poo out of a patient because they started raising their voice at me, I'd be arrested- and rightfully so. Nurses have to deal with violent patients frequently in some settings- and they have to do so unarmed. If any nurse lost their cool as easily as the cops that this decision will protect, they wouldn't stay nurses very long.

Personally, I think the solution is to use internal investigations for true errors, and criminally prosecute cops for assault when they use excessive force. Then I'd be OK with keeping the identities of subjects of internal investigations private.

so they don't have their names announced, that doesn't mean they wont get investigated and prosecuted.This is very much like the law proposed to change the terminology from victim to accuser in sexual assault trial. It is to protect the rights of officers accused of misconduct falsely, also, think about who will be accusing them of misconduct most often, the crappy part of society none of us want to deal with, that's why we pay them to.
