No, Varangians. But seriously, aren't Internal Affairs just officers within the department they're supposed to investigate? If you want to investigate and stop corruption, you need people who are far removed from the situation, which is why I'd like an independent Federal agency.
Yeah, I've said that same thing in the past. Police have shown time and time again that they can't police themselves. When you are getting harassed by the police, who can you call? The police?
This. Oh me yarm. This. When being threatened, hassled, intimidated, who do you turn to?
Big brothers? Some people have big brothers. Some people have Police people as family.
I don't. We could attempt to be friendly. First name? Any name is ok by me.
Police in the community is nice. Nice ones. Some have special educations in Conflict Manigment and Something.
I spoke with The Chief of Police one morning. He was Great!
Of course, I suppose; A man must 'Know' someone to be stationed in a quiet, picturesque village.
All that talent and education; What a waste.
I imagine his most challenging confrontations are in the VIP parking lot during the County Fair.
I have no idea what that life would be like. He meets with people all day long.
It was not light, yet, and he was meeting with people. He meets with people after dark, too.
A Peaceful life may always include a lot of meetings. The man was a picture of Peace.
He could get a Good Cop Award. I don't remember his name. It should be easy to find.
(Google is amazing) Bret Smith. I liked him. I could change my mind.
I suspect that the only way to be a responsible police officer is to recognize that as a police officer, you have a duty to treat no one as your genuine enemy.
I agree with Hippo. What are we doing with so many enemies?
Some of our people are very, very difficult.
Some of us seem difficult when we are ill.
The list of shit is long. Diabetes, electrolyte imbalances, on and on.
It is just a thought. What if; The Police were trained to see us as a medical responsibility?
Is someone going to look into the Case of the person that was kicked? Is it a media smoke screen?
Is it common for the Police to abuse the public? I have some first hand experience.
I do not think my experience is the common experience. It could be.
That would be bad.
As far as letting your Mom go with a warning. (Shrug.) "If ya' follow all the Rules, ya' miss all the fun."
Miss Adury Hepburn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audrey_Hepburnhttp://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/autho ... pburn.html
She was fun.
In the best of all possible worlds, the Police like us all.
We all get off with a warning.
Some of us might need a little more help than that.
There is a fundamental problem.
Is The Job to find the bad guys and punish them?
Is The Job to help people?
Someone has this all figured out.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
