    So a police chief got his fwee fwees hurt because a person on social media was criticizing him and his department. So obviously like any person with such great power over a town he acted not like a reasonable law abiding adult who ignored the posts but a power tripping criminal who threatened to arrest the poster with falsified evidence of a felony. Luckily the guy got in touch with the FBI and he was arrested. The bad part is he of course just plead out by resigning and knowing how police work in the U.S. he will probably be hired at a police department at least 3 towns over.
    He faces up to a year in prison and $100,000 in fines. Though not fully settled yet, that's a far cry from "just plead out by resigning." He has not been yet sentenced by a judge, and the charging was less than a week ago. So maybe wait just a little longer before forming a conclusion. For all we know, he could receive justice in proportion to his abuse of civil rights and abuse of position.

    So, now there is a new shooting in Kansas City, that is shown in previously unreleased private video from a store clerk.

    There is already 4 cops on the dude when a 5th cop comes in, pulls her service weapon, and shoots, but the problem is, she shot a cop with the first shot, then makes up something saying that the shot came from the guy that has 4 guys already on top of him, with no weapon shown, and shoots him twice.

    They straight up executed him, just for fucking struggling, they all have fucking tasers and don't use them.

    Just FYI, the video shows that the cops shot each other, then executed him, while you may not see blood or the body, it is still NSFW.

    Oh, absolutely, it was bullshit when they pulled the gun after she shot her co-worker. Especially when she claimed the guy they were trying to arrest, was the one that shot. But I guarantee they didn't even do forensic evidence on the bullet or the guns in the altercation. Guarantee all of them came from the dumb cops gun.

    All of the officers, sergeants and detectives with the Portland Police Bureau’s Rapid Response Team — the unit responsible for policing protests in the city — resigned from the team together Wednesday night.

    Police bureau officials called the move unprecedented.

    The resignations from the unit came after news this week that one member of the team, Officer Corey Budworth, would face criminal charges for excessive force used during a racial justice protest last year, and that a second Rapid Response Team member, Det. Erik Kammerer, is being investigated by the Oregon Department of Justice on similar allegations.
    Just like when the officers who almost murdered Martin Gugino in Buffalo, the officers were being investigated, and the departments rapid respond team resigned.

    Yes, how dare they resign from a position that paid them no extra, where they had no support from the mayor or city council, and where they knew it was more likely they would be charged by the DA than the protestors destroying downtown... Honestly, it is amazing Portland can even find people willing to be on the force. Its just like how the city government was shocked that only 3-4 officers put their name in for consideration to being posted to a new anti-gun task force.

    I mean, they could just... not break the law and then they wouldn't be charged, amiright?

    Having broken the law and then been charged with the offense, they're still ahead of the people who were victims of police shootings, because they didn't get shot, as well.

    Also, your math doesn't check out. Only one officer among the 50 has been charged. That's 2%. Some 10% of the 1000+ protesters in Portland have had charges filed. A batch of more than 2 dozen more people were charged just a few weeks ago.

    Most people arrested for crimes during the riots have had the charges dropped by the DA. The DA has not dropped any charges against the police. I am personally hoping the entire department resigns.

    Hey, look at that, we agree on something. Just maybe not for the reasons you think.

    Remember, you're defending a police officer who beat a journalist over the head from behind with his baton, then kept beating her in the head after she was on the ground trying to cover her face with her hands. And you're praising his fellow officers who refused to intervene despite it being explicitly against department policy to strike someone in the head unless there is cause to employ deadly force.

    Why should violent criminals get support from the city?

    I love seeing the "No sympathy for criminals" crowd change their position when the criminals happen to be Police.

    Conservatives really need to get off this ridiculous talking point.

    There would be no protests destroying property, and professional pussies in law enforcement wouldn't be "afraid of doing their jobs" if they had decided decades ago to stop shielding those who abused their positions from the just consequences of their actions. Consequences which include (but aren't limited to) people viewing US police as a whole as little more than a lawless gang of thugs who exist solely to make everyone's lives worse...and the resentment, anger, and violence that comes with that sentiment.

    That's because there was no case for most of those arrests.

    I mean, it's the one charge. One officer, who is caught on video attacking a woman in the back of the head with his baton, repeatedly, as she's trying to get away. And he was only charged with a misdemeanor.

    And you think this shit is somehow inappropriate? I honestly have no idea how you can defend this.

    Yes, defend dumbasses that are pissed off their fellow officer was indicted on fucking excessive force.

    Almost like there's largely a lack of evidence to support prosecuting people aggressively arrested by the police without cause, while there's like, tons of video evidence of police assaulting people.

    The cases aren't thrown out because of "librul DA's" for the most part, they're thrown out because the police have little short of, "Cause I said so." to support many of the charges.

    This is buffalo PD resigning from their respective task force in "solidarity" with the two officers who were under investigation at the time for almost murdering Martin Gugino for the crime of trying to give officers back one of their helmets. Remember that? When the old guy was on the sidewalk bleeding from his skull, and an officer who started kneeling to check on him was grabbed by another officer as the line of cops marched forward? Where not an officer actually checked on him, just the few NG members who were there and apparently aren't cool with casual attempted murder and casual violence?

    You sound pretty sympathetic for a police force, the PPB, that's still under federal supervision for extensive issues including excessive use of force and lying in police reports and shit. There's a reason most folks in Portland hate Portland cops.

    I think that one applies too.

    Apparently though, it doesn't apply to law enforcement for some folks. Just for us civies.

    "No sympathy for criminals" is my favourite. But, as you said, apparently that one doesn't apply when the Cops are the criminals.
