I originally intended to post this yesterday when I first saw it, but there was already a thread going on about a similar topic, and I just figured that one new thread discussing very poor actions by law enforcement was enough for one day

Not gonna go and make them the poster children for all cops. Because that would mean that I was stereotyping an entire group of people based on the actions of a few, wouldn't it?

Yeah it kind of is actually. It seems to me like HD's comment is in response to some argument that isn't even going on.

Or is that just me?

Well yeah, it was kind of halfway out of nowhere, but I was just saying that the statement itself is pretty easy to understand.

Yeah I get the statement itself I'm just confused because I don't see what could have prompted such a response.

It might've been in response to DRO1's comment

Hmm... Maybe. I dunno though. It seemed like HD was calling out someone who had specifically made a statement about generalising an entire group based on a few individuals.

He's got a point. It's easy to assume because small number of group X does action Y then ALL of group X does action Y.

All anime fans marry their body pillows right? Photographic evidence is only a google search away.


This group of cops should be punished appropriately for their actions. No others.

I believe that's the general gist of what the West's biggest killer was trying to say.

That's not cool at all but I refuse to hate on all cops because there's some really good one's out there who aren't corrupted or don't join the force for all the wrong reasons. Back when I was younger I had a police officer (he was the chief in the small town where I live) help me out and if it wasn't for him I would have been in jail (probably prison for a couple of years). He went out of his way to help me. I'd done some crappy things and he allowed me to make amends to people and apologize but he told me if any single one of them wanted to press charges it would be out of his hands. Thankfully nobody did. I don't know why he didn't just take me to jail. I guess he saw something in me that hadn't gone past the point of being redeemable. Whatever it was I'm very thankful to him and wish I could tell him now. It's been decades but that was the beginning of the end of me being a screw up. I really owe him. My life may have turned out vastly different if it weren't for the kindness of a police officer.

Growing up, when I was a kid my best friends dad was a cop and he was a very good guy who just wanted to help people. I remember as a kid him talking to my mom and his wife about one of his brothers who was arrested and they found him dead the next day in his cell. There was never an investigation but he always thought that some cops had killed him and made it look like a suicide. He was roughed up pretty bad and he spent years trying to find some evidence to support his theory. He never did unfortunately but that just goes to show that even cops can and do think that there may be other cops who are corrupt. He said his brother was not suicidal and would not have done that. He was arrested for being drunk and apparently there was an altercation. He said the arresting officers had a bit of a history of roughing people up and that they were really pissed off at him that night.

It's just like with anything else in life. You have good, caring cops who truly want to make a difference and then you have adrenaline junkies, bullies and psychopaths who love the power. It also doesn't help that police are NOT receiving adequate training these days. Whatever happened to the baton? The stun gun is way over used and can be extremely lethal. I've seen them on cops just holding that trigger down and I've counted to over two minutes before. That is NOT the proper way to use it. They need better training. That's for sure. Also it seems like there are too many cowards entering the force these days. Everyone seems to fear for their lives (with good reason mind you) and just open fire out of fear. The job is not for the feint of heart. If you're too scared or not good under pressure then you shouldn't be a police officer.
