After a long day of utter outrage, the other day (watch the video, if you haven’t already), I posted a clarification of what this is all about. And; because I had quoted Billy, I went ahead and emailed him, asking for his opinion.
Go read his response, then come on back.
He makes two undeniably good points. Can you really say that there are any good cops at all, when the stuff that I’ve been reporting on (a small percentage of the rotten crap taking place) exists and there is absolutely no detectable movement anywhere amongst police officers themselves to root out this contemptible evil at any cost–even, and perhaps especially, turning in their own badges? And yep, they still all wear the same uniform. I know for a fact that there are lions that have been trained and domesticated to the point of being pussycats. But they still look exactly like the ones that can and will tear your head off your shoulders in under a second.
I guess that wanting to have good cops and wanting to like and respect them is just about as close as we’re going to get.
