Skokie Thug Cop Michael Hart Needs to Go to Jail and Get About 20 “Boyfriends”

That's absolutely right. Yep, I'd celebrate and laf at hearing he was anally gang raped until dead, just so everyone would have a new place to take a piss.

How about that? Revolting? Yea? Brutal? Yea? Well then check this out:

More detail here.

A Chicago woman, Cassandra Feuerstein, 47, is suing the town of Skokie, Illinois, claiming she was a victim of police brutality, reports CBS Chicago.

The above CCTV video shows Feuerstein just after being arrested for DUI in March 2013. After asking an officer if she can call her husband, she is removed from the cell for a few seconds. Then, at the 1:50 mark in the video, Feuerstein — who weighs 110 pounds — is shown being flung, face-first, into a concrete bench in the cell.

There's a bunch more image captures in sequence at that link, but here's the most pertinent ones.

  Yea, that's a pool of blood. Real blood.

Immediately upon seeing the damage he'd done here, Michael Hart "did the right thing." He immediately filed a complaint against his perp for "resisting." It's heroic, because that will probably save the City of Skokie a Million Easy, since that would have to be litigated and so on and so forth and attorney fees and months of delay, etc. I can't tell from the video, but her hand might have brushed the door frame as she was being "ushered" back in. TO PROTECT & SERVE. ATTABOY.

You know what I'm sick to death of as concerns The Pigs?

  1. The fucking stupid idea that there's any such thing as a "good cop."
  2. The fucking stupid idea that they "serve & protect."
  3. The fucking stupid idea that "killed in the line of duty" is anything other than something to celebrate.

1. There's No Such Thing as a "Good Cop"

Andy Taylor is dead.

What happened to the age-old, wise metaphor that one bad apple spoils the whole bunch? I keep hearing every time I raise this issue that "yea, but there's a lot of 'good cops,'" which I consider a blatant contradiction in terms on many levels. In a basket with literally hundreds of thousands of YouTube videos documenting police brutality (I've seen those search results as high as 2.5 million) and a legitimate, credible news report somewhere nearly every day documenting same, at what point do you consider the whole fucking basket just plain putrid and rotten?

What, are you starving for Pigs, or something? How fucking stupid are you willing to allow yourselves to be over this fantasy that they help you rather than routinely harm you? How many people can actually say that a cop really made a material difference in preventing them important harm? Compare that minuscule number (and I've never known a single such person ever in my nearly 53 years) to the massive numbers of people who've been harassed, robbed at gunpoint (that's exactly what it is) and even been beaten or jailed when they were either harming nobody at all, or only themselves. Personally, I've been harassed needlessly dozens of times in my life and have been robbed hundreds of dollars; and never once was I harming a soul, or showing any clear objective signs of doing so.

So-called good cops are all long gone. Probably, thank the public unions for that because, as soon as there's a mere suggestion of wrongdoing all wagons get circled every time by all. "Good cops" would rather stick needles in their eyes than rat out one of the hundreds of thousands of predatory criminals in uniform, toting guns, stealing from and brutalizing people to get their rocks off in America.

Where are the so-called good cops, outraged when a fellow cop literally gets caught on tape beating someone nearly to death—or actually to death—and they get a paid vacation "pending an investigation?" Where's the "good cop" outrage when, fearing a big hit on municipal or state coffers, it's decided by the DA or AG that "there was no evidence of wrongdoing," in order to give the government a leg up in settlement negotiations—all when your so-called good cops—who know very damn well and good what went down—won't do a fucking real thing about it?

They can all rot in hell, every last fucking one of them. Let Satan sort 'em out.

2. These Predators Don't Serve, Or Protect; Nor Do They Even Pretend To

Get over lying marketing schtick and hyperbole, Pig loving-fucktards. Take your "Thin Blue Line" and snort it.

This is a so-called profession with an employees' union, all with budget breaking, unsustainable pension obligations breaking the back of municipalities right & left all over the country. It's so fucking lucrative that virtually everyone is on the take, now, and nobody wants to rock the [rotten] apple cart.

When is the last time in your direct experience a cop showed up when seconds counted and actually prevented imminent bodily or property harm, maybe even took a "professional," oath-honoring personal risk in protecting citizens and their property? Or, do they typically show up minutes later to "serve" by making sure the mess gets cleaned up, dead bodies get carted off to the morgue...and oh...evidence is preserved and reports are filed in triplicate—but not for your satisfaction or your justice, but so that district and state attorneys can win one for "The People," thus preserving your abject stupidity in this complete con?

Ever felt outrage at suffering an injustice personally or as a loved one of someone who has, only to read that the criminal plaintiff is "The People?" What about you and yours?

And how about the most public, massive brutalities? How often have you seen this scene: building with a shooter or shooters inside, pop-pop-pop killing people, all while cops in their armor and fashions are hiding behind trees or other durable obstructions? Then, to add insult, in the public relations gig to follow that they call a "press conference," the official—typically dressed impeccably, in military press & crease, and with political aspirations—tells you that their primary concern was for "officer safety."

Translation: We're here to clean up the mess and conduct a thorough investigation once the coast is clear for us to "serve." Looks like we arrived a little early, but fortunately, we have our armoured personnel carrier, all the officers are dressed to the nines in their G.I. Joe gear—courtesy of Vicarious Fashions (formerly Hasbro)—and we've taken up secure positions.

Like I said, they don't even pretend to "protect." Translation: They are frauds, through and through.

3. Unless Being a Professional Predator and Highway Robber is an Exalted Occupation, "Killed in the Line of Duty" is Rather Oxymoronic

Where are a huge percentage of these reports of shocking abuse coming from, made even more shocking by the fact these guys often know they're under surveillance (...just imagine...)? They're coming from local news affiliates.

So how come you're not dry firing at the TV, or barfing on your own floor over the far less frequent reports from the same outlets that "another officer was killed in the line of duty last night?"

What a useless fucking bromide, a cheap slogan at its worst.

There's two parts to this. The first is that according to reports I read (unverified), "The Perp," Cassandra Feuerstein, had actually either pulled over or was just parked, realizing a predicament. That is, if accurate, she was being a responsible fellow human being exercising presence of mind, even in a compromised state. Along comes "The Hero" in "Serve & Protect" mode to cite her for illegal parking and then, driving while intoxicated when she wasn't driving at all.

The "perp" is actually the victim of the "hero." We live in an upside-down, 180 Degree world, where crime is regarded as virtue, and salutary honor is reserved for thieves and brutes.

The other part is that the vast majority of people in prison in America today are there, not for harming another soul, but for violating a law. You may think that's justification enough but I tell you: a law that does not have as its basis to exist the presumption that someone else suffered harm, is arbitrary.

Here, let's examine the "astounding success" of arbitrary law.

Congratulations, America:

The incarceration rate in the United States of America is the highest in the world today. As of 2009, the incarceration rate was 743 per 100,000 of national population (0.743%). In comparison, Russia had the second highest, at 577 per 100,000, Canada was 123rd in the world at 117 per 100,000, and China had 120 per 100,000.

Who but your typical Republican retard, Sean Hannity sycophant, can even say "Land of the Free" or "America the Beautiful" with a straight face, anymore? I, as did many of you I'm sure, grew up with stories of the brutality, injustice and arbitrariness of the Soviet and Chinese Communist regimes. And we righteously considered ourselves better than that.

In the words of Dr. Phil: "How's that working out for you?" Now?

Makes me gag, now. And guess what? In very nearly every circumstance, who was the very first government official all of these prisoners with lives and families completely shattered dealt with? They dealt with professional thugs for hire, complete with a public union and a lavish pension, paid for by you stupid, ignorant, flag-waving fucks who can't think for yourselves to beat your stupid mess of a so-called independent & free life out of the wettest paper sac the world has ever known.

I see vicious, evil brutes here. And just like I was taught for good reason to celebrate the death by any circumstance of an evil brute, I simply can not in honest conscience make meaningless distinctions over the style of fashions or the identity of a paycheck signatory.

I love it every time I hear of a cop being killed. Every time. You know those signs on the highways, now? "The Officer XXX Memorial Highway?" I'm like, "cool, I think I need to pull over and take a memorial piss."

~~~

Over the top? No, and I'll tell you why. Ever heard the joke: What do you call 1,000 lawyers at the bottom of the sea? A good start. Har har har. See, that's socially acceptable because the public have come to realize that even in the private sphere, lawyers use laws to not only predate and parasitize for themselves, but for their White Collar Hoax clients. People understand that in spite of what good they may do sometimes, they're pretty much a net drain on society and the economy. Who can't easily work out that civil litigation in America is a magnitudes net drain on society and a Sport of Kings that you ultimately pay for?

Translation: hits your pocket book, death to them all.

But I'm over the top when I celebrate actually, the death or killing of any cop on any pretense. I do. I'm not bullshitting you. They are predators, killers, robbers and enslavers to an over-the-top measure. You should love it when a predator, killer, robber and enslaver bites it, no matter your allegiance or theirs. ...If, you're honest and your heart is beating correctly.

Be honest with yourself. Given the increasingly public, verifiable facts of widespread predation, cover-up, perjury, back-room-dealing, self-preservation at all costs, and on and on, aren't you being kind of stupid to defend them or their institution ever, on any grounds? You don't have to celebrate their killings as I righteously do, but don't you think it's a bit absurd to keep repeating "good cop" mantras, exposing the fact that you lack a functioning brain?

...And while I'm at it, how many of those fucking fraudulent, glorifying cop shows on the TEEVEE do you watch? Seeing a connection to that and your thinking or knee-jerk reaction?

  1. Long, slow, heartfelt golf clap.

  2. Stark Brandstone says:

    Fucking A right! Childhood friends I knew became cops. Friends no more, until they become the righteous “good cop” saying exactly what you just said.

  3. Can’t agree more.

    It’s impossible to be a good cop and be in uniform. After a week of seeing the corruption a good cop would quit or start arresting the bad cops.

  4. Wow. And I thought I was hard on cops. I’ve had several friends beaten up by the cops over the years. One was an African American man, a member of my church and a fine member of the community, who was pulled over by the cops, one night, supposedly for suspicion of drunk driving. This suburb always had plenty of cops to swarm any suspect, and the four white cops that responded proceeded to beat him down because they didn’t like his attitude. He was arrested for resisting and thrown into jail with broken ribs, coughing up blood and no medical attention until the next morning. He was never convicted of anything and he was unsuccessful in a lawsuit because they had all gotten their stories together by then.

    The other was a middle aged mentally impaired man. Cops responded to a cranky neighbor that didn’t like how he was calling from his car for a friend in front of his house. The cops followed him as he drove to his nearby home and pulled into his driveway. They claim he didn’t pull over when they flashed their lights and were probably enraged that he hadn’t. He was scared and confused. When he finally came out of his car, they bashed him in the teeth, knocking out four, and threw him down to the ground. They claimed he had taken a swing at them, which is preposterous.

    Richard, I think you’re off target, though, when you claim unions are at all the cause of this. This type of police culture goes way back. They’ve been taking kickbacks and terrorizing the streets since the age of prohibition and before.

  5. We can package this up with the video of the cop in Chicago beating the shit out of a woman bartender. You or me would end up in the crowbar hotel, I think the cop in question was suspended for a couple weeks.

  6. @Peter

    Unions, that’s why I said “probably.” Just my hypothesis.

    Sorry to hear about your friends and loved ones. I once had a friend wrapped up in a DUI. It was brutal (this was around 1995 or so), invalid—he got off even without and attorney, but the ordeal was life changing and he was never again the same, now a derelict on the streets of San Diego for many years.

    He used to own a corporation with 30 employees.

  7. @Sean

    You know, just after publishing something like this I like to go out on the patio, pour a whiskey and maybe, even light up. Guess what I wondered? Will Sean comment?

    I thought, he will. And here’s exactly my fantasy comment:

    “Yea, but you said ‘cunt.'”

    :)

  8. The effect of these police abuses are often quite profound. I worry much about my cognitively disable friend. He remains fearful, anxious, and shattered, while he is cleared of the specious charges, attempts to gain some justice, and tries to go on with his life. I don’t think he’ll ever recover from this trauma.

  9. Meh. She’s running around drunk in public, she’s some other guy’s wife.

    Cop will get fired, city is out some money, she got a cracked skull.

  10. tatertot says:

    In the stills, you can really tell that was a helluva shove. It’s probably great fun for them doing that to a regular drunk, but the lady was tiny and wearing socks on a slippery floor. You know the cop didn’t ‘mean’ to crack her skull. I’d about bet money they shove everybody in like that.

    Can’t you hear them chuckling to each other as they walk someone to the cell? ‘Here’s your room, bitch–get some sleep–KA-WHAM, [door slam], hahahahhaha–good one, Mikey hahhahaha!’

    Then they go home to wifey and kids, get drunk and beat the shit out of them, too. But at least they can go to church and get saved on Sunday.

  11. Woooooooooooooooooooow,
    this guy is a coward! Lock his ass up and pun him in the pen. Let the real men push him around!

  14. Read the post, wolf. And then, consider making an argument that doesn’t expose your ignorance.

    What you provided isn’t worthy of a competent 5 year old.

  15. Hey that wasn’t me! Even when these guys get prosecuted they don’t usually get the anywhere close to the sentencing that a “civilian” would get for the same crime.

    • NeverTrustACop says:

      Amen!!! Hart was so surprised that after 19 years of service he gets arrested.” What a dumbass comment. Does he assume those of us who have been arrested (disorderly conduct when I was younger, which was later dropped) are not productive and positive citizens? That he’s above the law and somehow better than the rest of us? He committed a crime and it’s on video. He didn’t think “pushing someone” to be a crime. Mr. Hart, it wasn’t a simple push. And if I had done something similar? I’d be locked up somewhere. What bothers me more? He doesn’t care that his behavior was caught on tape, which suggests this happens more than the public knows (some people are afraid to speak out…Cassandra’s came to light because she ended up in the hospital…if her injuries had been lesser, she’d have been denied treatment and the tape would have been mysteriously deleted). And after 19 years of service he doesn’t think what he did was wrong. Seriously? Hart needs to be stripped of his badge, labeled the arrogant asshole he is and be left to rot somewhere. I cannot believe he had the nerve to sue Cassandra. Srsly. I’m happy to see his claim has been dismissed. I have absolutely zero respect for cops. If you’re a proud good cop, start working to get rid of the assholes you work with instead of covering for them. I don’t trust cops. Not one.

    • “If you’re a proud good cop, start working to get rid of the assholes you work with instead of covering for them. I don’t trust cops. Not one.”

      Yep, what I’ve been saying forever. The police don’t police their own. And they’d rather take a sharp pencil in the eye than speak out about the “only 1% bad cops.”

  16. This rule stays the same for everywhere – stay away from the cops. Whether you are innocent or not, they have the right to say anything and act anything and the court would believe them more than you because they are the “Good Cops”. I hope the lady you shown on the photos above got treated and has regained her health.

  17. Hah! Richard, I could regale you and your audiences with tales of our Protectors and Servants. How they get a badge and think it’s some sort of right to become philandering alcoholic gamblers who need to cheat, drink, and bet away their money because the stress of the job is too great and they need release. Who are we to judge their behavior, when they provide such good protections and services for us?

    But I wont. You’ll have to take my word for it that I knew many cops and only one of them wasn’t a complete shitbag.

    This story happened a few years ago, not far from my home, where it’s usually pretty quiet. NJ State Troopers beat a mentally handicapped man against their patrol car because he was “resisting.”

    James Bayliss was a star athlete and good student when, in 2005, a car accident left him with severe brain damage. Cognitive and physical impairment were permanent. In 2009, he had the good fortune to be Served and Protected by two state troopers who decided he was being belligerent and resisting, so they showed him who was BO$$.

  18. I feel the same way you do about cops.

    I cheered when the white nation guys put a bullet through Hank’s skull. Even in fiction I hate those mother effers.

  19. RobertVE says:

    It’s always funny when people get all bothered when you call things by their true name. “Good cops, don’t make me laf. The best things you can say about a cop who does his work trying (and failing) to uphold high ethical standards is that he (or she) is a ignorant patsy being duped into working for evil.

  20. Loved this article!!! My Moms husband is a former dirty cop and now makes his living writing cop fiction…makes me sick.

  21. Wolfstriked says:

    Ok,I’ll give you my theory on life here and while it will be weird to most,I don’t give a fuck as I am hungover and have more issues to deal with right now such as rehydration!! ;) .We all live in reality and its controlled by our minds while the media and internet spread these thoughts even faster,like an extension of the subconscious.I see it that people will become what you think of them plain and simple.Cops are all humans born with neutral thoughts and not evil spawns upon birth.We need to constantly bring this idea to life or ALL cops will be evil spawns of Satan.Just look at what society of the great Americas has done to blacks and Hispanics that live here.When you are constantly bombarded with the idea that your race is bad you will become bad as a way to retaliate and its hard to fight it.Being good is hard to be plain and simple when the world makes you think your bad.Lets instead spread the idea that there are good cops and there are bad cops and live with the bad ones…..as we do with our fellow neighbors.;)

    I couldn’t agree more with your comments. I hope the MF rots in prison or gets electrocuted. (SPEWWWW – that is a spit to Michael Hart’s face. ) You make me SICK Michael Hart!

  23. Wolf

    You are reversing cause & effect. That bad, predatory people exist in society is a given. What you don’t do, but THEY do, is actively recruit for gung-ho bad people with chips on their shoulders and axes to grind.

    Let me go Godwin on you.

    I say there are no “good Hitlers.”

    Someone replies, but he loved animals. He had family members who adored him, and so on and so forth.

    Even the worst thug criminals are known to engage in charitable, compassionate or merciful acts from time to time. Doesn’t make them good criminals. Cops are bad as a matter of fact, defining characteristics, and for the reasons I laid out in the post and many others.

    And BTW, there’s no risk in helping out a drunk. It’s when the rubber meets the road and they’re called on to risk life and safety that the pussy comes out and all they want to do is pick up pieces, gather evidence and file reports.

  24. It is not just cops that are bad. It is anyone affiliated with any sort of enforcement for government. I have no idea how people can overlook the fact that the word enforcement gets it root in the word “force”.

    I cheer when these pigs (sorry bacon) are they themselves maimed, shot, stabbed, set ablaze… What makes this entire thing really sickening are family members of the fuzz that do nothing to help the innocent victims of law enforcers. They often times are the ones standing with barrel chests proudly displaying their pride in the cop in the family even after they see the destructive force they use.

    This guy went home and told someone what happened and I can guarantee you he was met with cheers.

    I refuse to be friends with enforcers. I have lost lots of friends over the years because of that and I am the better person because of it.

  25. No, it was me! I meant it as praise of this not as sarcasm. I whole heartedly agree and would suggest bourbon for the afterpost drink.

  26. @Sean(s)

    Ha, well, first, I do understand that “golf clap” has come to mean the opposite of the original meaning. …Which is cool because that lends a bit of ambiguity that can be fun.

    Sorry for the mixup. Not the first time, I don’t think. Probably not the last.

  27. Through instinct, children are able to pick up on things that elude adults. As a four year old, my inherent tendency was to distrust cops after seeing that stumbling drunkard Broderick Crawford in the cop show, “Highway Patrol.”

  28. Wolfstriked says:

    Reversing cause and effect?! Rather I am pointing out the cause and the resulting effect.Good people and bad people are a frame of mind and that is all.Watch the dog whisperer and you see insights into human nature.yes we are different but we are also animals that respond to things in certain ways.If you tell people they are bad(cause)they become bad(effect).

    Leaving alone cops for a second and speaking about the “normal people” you will see that we don’t report on good things people do but once a person does bad its everywhere and the world first judges and then the world condemns.Bad things = big news period.People love to then stew in the hatred and the world responds and changes its perception.This is a domino effect as the more and more you show the more and more society starts to lose their faith and start to hate all cops.Before TV we had an idea of cops as good people doing good things but media rears its ugly head and changes perception…..on a daily basis!Quick example is the monkey see monkey do effect of humans.Something happens and is shown on the news and what do you know…..it starts happening alot.Take all the gay killings recently in NYC or the newest monkey do effect of biker gangs gone wild after the beat down of that Chinese man.

    I’ll put it another way,how do you look on the Arab–Israeli conflict?Do you look upon them as strange and just can’t see why they have the utmost hatred for each other?You believe in good then be the word of good and stop pushing hatred.

    I think any time you put people in charge of controlling other people’s behavior, and then give them carte blanche ‘authori-tigh’ to do it however they see fit, you are asking for problems.

    How do you stop it? Hit ‘em where it hurts, their pocketbook. This video will probably generate a lot of briefings to cops, people will probably get fired. The internet is a big game changer, look at the Arab Spring.

  31. @ Teh WoooZ

    “RESISTED”

    Yes ma’am. Thank you. If you see enough of the brutality videos that are on local TEEVEE one thing comes clear. It’s always “they were resisting.” And, there’s plenty where as pigs are smashing in someone’s face, they chant “STOP RESISTING” with every punch, “hams” (har har) for the camera they are. ….Diversion but, this is why so many of them get filmed and caught. I pointed this out in the post. They think they’re on Cops, or something, or they’re auditioning.

    But think about that. “Resisting.” Think about the utter contradiction inherent in being treated like an animal for slaughter, and putting up the slightest protest or defense makes it all the worse.

    And consider how defensive wounds are always sought out in murder cases as a sure sign that there was aggression involved and that the perp can’t possibly claim self defense. Then begin to understand the inherent corruption and evil that are police forces.

    • NeverTrustACop says:

      I agree…cops always tack on “resisting,” “not obeying commands of a peace officer,” and “assaulting an officer.” That’s standard. And when someone is pushing and pulling and cussing at a person, there is an instinct to put hands up to protect your face, etc. but as soon as your hands come up? You are resisting. You are committing an assault. Five cops armed with nightsticks, guns and tasers…but they are the victims. No one asked them to be a cop. When they signed up they understood the responsibilities and risks. So when one is hurt, why all the glory? He was performing his job. He isn’t a hero.

  32. Wow, what a fantastic post. I’ll admit I feel exactly the same way, but would be way too much of a pussy to declare it so publicly. I guess that’s what we need you for, Richard.

    It’s funny, I live in Russia, a country with notoriously corrupt and evil cops. Yet I feel much more intimidated by the cops in the States. I think this may be because the relationship is more clearly defined in Russia – they have zero legitimacy in the eyes of citizens and both the cops and citizens are well aware of this. In the States, people have more of a tendency to bow to authority and the cops use this and let it go to their head. But cops are thugs, the worst type of criminals, and this doesn’t differ in any country or between any individuals. And don’t get me started on the CBP Gestapo – it’s none of your fucking business how I make my money or why I was in ten different countries before returning to the US.

    Wolfstriked – Please save your blank slate bullshit for people who want to be told what to think.

  33. Well I agree, he and other cops should be punished,, they don’t realize they screw with ppl and ppl will not respect any of them!! Do you know it’s not on the Internet anymore as of four days ago,, but mike hart didn’t get into trouble because because his Father and Mother are very important ppl in skokie,, that’s y states attorney didn’t press charges too, becides wanting to show the world that police violence, Skokie would have a bad name!!! Yes I do not like police just because of this reason!! I have do not have a criminal record at all,, and I really dislike not trust police at all. All the police don’t realize that there information is still able to be found out all about there personal life’s,, if anyone pays enough on Internet you can find out all personal information of police even from badge numbers!!! Even if they have it removed from search engines, pay the money and you will know all personal information of police!! Keep recording all police!

  34. Again Michael Hart thug cop,,, his daddy and mommy are very very important ppl in Skokie!! You be the judge!! His daddy just got an award administrator..!

  35. Bravo… Agreed on all points. If there are any “good” cops, that number is so small, it is still statistically accurate to say they are “all” douchebags.

  36. They’re not only beating people up, they’re stealing from them, outright, and lawfully (wink, wink) to fund their thuggery through a scam known as civil forfeiture.

  37. As someone not in the US, I was a bit surprised, not so much by the post, but by the almost complete consensus (I mean, even if the readers of FTA lean towards these opinions, there are usually many more contrarian views here).
    Had no idea it was that bad. Is it the same all over the states? Big states and small? The “sunbelt”? Rural states?
    Is it in some ways the same in Canada?

  38. bornagain says:

    So we get rid of the police and then what? Replace them with vikings perhaps? Maybe some of Ghengis Kahn’s loyal subjects will keep law and order? History tells us the current system is a fairly big improvement of historical examples of law and order. Homicide rates in the US are about 50 times lower than in prehistoric times.

    A few bad police is probably a reasonable compromise if we consider the full spectrum of alternatives – not just the libertarian nirvana of gentle people freely exchanging goods, services, riding ponies and sucking lollipops all day.

  39. Take heart, those devolved from “protect and serve” to “oppress and terrorize”, will be AWOL when the shit hits the fan. There is nothing more cowardly than a criminal hiding behind a badge. Per the mixed economy model, EVERY cop is a criminal. Perjury and obstruction of justice is perquisite to membership. When the sheeple find themselves without “entitlements”, hunger will return their behavior to commit unimaginable acts with tooth, claw and fire.

    Public service unions are criminal entities whom act in collusion with politicians that deliberately assemble contracts/pensions based upon fraudulent economic forecasting, immediately rendering them impossible to pay benefits due to the inescapable law of exponents. This criminal behavior includes paying ritual political donations to same politicians they vote for, and choose to set across the “bargaining” table from. Public service unions and politicians are parasitic entities; citizens are host. Despotism is the ultimate destination of the mixed economy model. Always has been, always will be.

    May we live in interesting times.

    Thanks for the astute observation. Yea, the lack of significant discord is pretty telling. Of course, that’s confounded by the fact that I nurture freethinkers. Nonetheless, it does prove there’s seemingly well adjusted folks who have no problem with my harsh position and raises the possibility that detractors are probably regurgitating, or as in my Facebook, “my brother is a cop and since he’s my brother and I’m good, he can’t be bad.” Yea, guilt by association is fallacious, but so is innocence.

    If you caught the part of the post about incarceration rates, Canada is like 100 sumthin per 100k to our 700 sumthin so for what ever reason, cops are 7 times less predatory north of the border. Their rates are in line with western Europe’s.

  41. @bornagain

    You’re welcome to you argument that the bad (cops) are the only thing keeping back Genghis Kahn and his marauders (the worse).

    It might play well in cop, “on ‘the job'” forums and such. Good luck with that.

  43. This is sickening.

    It’s our own fault. We’ve given government the keys to the kingdom.

  44. “We’ve given government the keys to the kingdom.”

    I think it’s more nuanced than that RB.

    Take a look at history. All governments have always had to have their henchmen, their enforcers. Everyone focuses on the top when in reality, every citizen ought be making every henchman, every enforcer their moral enemy and telling them so. To their face, with moral authority.

    The vast majority of people in their lives will never encounter the enforcement measures of a DA, AG, or any other white collar drone. Everybody will, at numerous times throughout life be intimidated, ordered around, robbed at gunpoint (that’s simply what a highway stop is) and otherwise be harassed and intimidates by the state’s blue collar henchmen and enforcers.

    they’re those, people need to focus on. Let’s see how well the state does without them if, as some say, there’s so many good ones and if true, we can expect them to just quit and leave the state in the lurch.

  45. @Richard: I note your admiration for the relatively democratic socialist states of Canada and Western Europe. LOL.

  46. @Peter

    You did not see admiration. You saw a basic comparison I’ve never shied away from.

    But I get it. Whores doing just fine number in the billions.

    “…And while I’m at it, how many of those fucking fraudulent, glorifying cop shows on the TEEVEE do you watch?”

    I hate, hate, hate today’s police state too, yet I enjoy the cheesy and equally square Dragnet show of the ’60’s (on Netflix) with Joe Friday (Jack Webb) & Bill Gannon (Harry Morgan).

  48. I knew a few cops in the DC area. One used to beat the crap out of homeless men just to have fun and also to get a “paid vacation” as he would pretend to be hurt after the “resisting arrest” episode. He used to put his arm in a sling to go pick up his paycheck and then show up for softball practice. Another used to go to dead shows and indulge in all sorts of stuff including LSD and shrooms but when he caught a DUI/DWI then he would make sure to the max that the “perp” was screwed big time. The rules did not apply to them and the union protected them.

    Also while living in Boston, I found out that for any type of road work being done there were one or two officers required to be present for traffic “safety” and they would get overtime pay. The union knows how to milk the system.

    There is one very simple way to stop these criminals from gaming the system and taking advantage of the public. The steps are as follows..
    1. Let the public sue the Union instead of the city
    2. Require the Union to buy insurance for “bad cops”
    3. Require the union to hire their own lawyers for defending the “bad cops”
    4. Let the union invest the money for the pensions for the cops

    I guarantee that after a few cops are sued under this system, the union itself will purge the scumbags that are filling the rotten apple cart and it would restore the integrity of the good cops. It would also do away with the outragous defined pensions that are bankrupting the citîes and screwing the taxpayers

  49. I used to holiday in the US at least twice a year. It’s a great country. I’ve met a lot of nice people there. Frankly, since 9/11 all I see is a Police State that’s out of control. I’m going to stay home until Americans get control of America back from their Statist overlords. And if you think I am being overly critical watch “America’s largest Street Gang”:

  52. No good cops. Out of tens of thousands.

    I assure you that my sister was a “Good cop.” Retired captain in the Sarasota County, FL sheriff’s department. No power, machismo drive. Honestly, to Protect and to Serve. She wouldn’t have hurt a flea unless that fleas was committing a felony.

    And, BTW, she consistently out shot and out drove most of the males on the test range and driving range.

    Yes, there are bad cops. We need to be rid of them. But don’t make it all one way or the other.

  53. Ok, pzo doesn’t get it, where almost everyone else has, easily.

    It’s always the people with a relative (guy in my FB comments exactly the same) who have the most difficult time understanding that there is no such thing as a good cop. Not even your mother.

  54. …BTW, my dad’s brother is a retired cop and his son, a retired sherif. My youngest brother graduated the police academy, but went to work for me instead.

  55. goldhoarder says:

    “Had no idea it was that bad. Is it the same all over the states? Big states and small? The “sunbelt”? Rural states?”

    County cops are better. Don’t do as much revenue enhancing and treat at least the members of their counties better. This reflects the sheriff being an elected position. Big city cops are unbelievably corrupt. Drugs, drinking, prostitution, above the law… ugly ugly stuff. State troppers… just hand out traffic tickets and somehow seem to have an aloof attitude like they are something special. I could never figure that one out. What the hell makes them think they are so special.

    I’m not sure the above poster had a very good point on the arabs and Israel. Israel is an apartheid state formed by Western guilt over the holocaust. There was no Israel problem before the creation of Israel. Actually the Jews were treated mostly decently by the Muslims. None of these problems would have materialized had the Jews not been given money and arms by the West to take over that land. They feel like they are in a position of strength over the Muslims due to there weapon and financial superiority and feel no need to negotiate a peace and they are probably correct.

    As the federal government has taken to subsidizing local police forces with armored vehicles and encouraged them to form SWAT teams and hire ex military the local police forces are in about the same superior position the Israeli Jew is to the Palestinian. We are no longer seen on the same level. They are our betters now and if we don’t calmly submit or they just feel like dolling out a bit of punishment…that is what they are going to do to us. Whether I think they are “good” as they are beating me down or I think they are “bad” as they are beating me down. I’m still going to get a beat down.

  56. Christopher Dorner is an example of what happens to a GOOD COP who does the right thing, the system turns on him instead of supporting justice and even the top cops put on a show to hide their own asses. Its all about cowards who get involved and find out its not about justice or protecting the public, its about profit, bribes, protecting dishonest lawyers who become judges (their real power behind them). Its about bullies who grow up as losers who need power and control and find it via a gun and badge.

    Has anyone ever noticed a cop when he enters a room, be it a restaurant or business with the arms crossed, hands on his gun? The body language speaks volumes and you often see young insecure kids who seek power via this false sense of self.

    The other negative is the huge ego these mentally ill folks being with them to the table, try and tell them they’ve missed something in a cold case or matter and they fight you (in reality defending their own image).

    The Kelly Thomas (Murder) not beating in Fullerton CA is a perfect example of a bad cop beating to death an unarmed person who did not even fight back. No less than 5 other officers stood by, stopping the public from helping, destroying evidence and lying about the event in their reports. Now how different is this then a street gang beating someone (for a reason other than being homeless) and members standing by watching for police. Its really insane what police have become or what we have allowed them to do.

    The solution is law must be changed and the federal government must put in place citizen groups to oversee lawyers, judges and police. Its got to be objective citizens who decide the outcome, paid leave MUST be removed (rewards for bad behavior) when any law has been broken in the process. They’ve stripped away our American Constitution so why not strip away the rights of civil servants?

    What Michael Hart did was obvious and with malice, he should have been shot dead by others around him as was armed, a threat and mentally unstable. This same excuse is used everyday by police when they shoot and kill people as a reason to avoid it looking like murder. Now if it was not a cop and this person had one of Hart’s children or his wife and was going to shove them into a cement wall head first would Hart find it within himself to shoot that person doing this? Eye for an eye, the sword cuts both ways.

    Excellent story by the way, people who take offense to the language should one day be victimized by police or the legal system and get over it.

    We’re hiring the wrong people and giving guns and badges to people who never should have possession of them. Check out facebook for policethepolice and cop block or uglyjudge.com for groups that are exploding with new members as a result of BAD COPS. The stories come in by the thousands exposing bad cops, the legal system and how its all out of control

  58. EX-officer says:

    this very article and the comments generated from it, is exactly why I left “public service” to go to the private sector. the truth is ALL cops, are flawed human being, most of them have some kind of emotional hang-up, they are dangerous people at BEST only care about “cleaning up” the streets, which apparently requires: lying racial, age, vehicle profiling, harassment, unwarranted searches (they use the dog to give them probable cause by giving the dog a subtle training command away from your line of sight, the dog jumps on the car and the other cops sees it and orders you out of the car telling you the dog smells “something”, they use the word “something” so that they can just search for anything, make them tell you WHAT it is you are looking for!! invest in a Go pro camera with sound or any other small video & and sound recording device. REMEMBER! you have the right to remain silent at all times during a traffic stop. you are not obligated to speak other than answer questions relevant to the stop (no need to answer “where you headed/going? how you doing? etc..) just give them your paperwork and stay quiet, REMEMBER! anything you say can and will be used against you.

    I left public “service” because of people like the officers in the video. I’ve seen many officers like him all bent out of shape from shit in their past, they just take out their frustration on perps. I left because after seeing some of my friends loose themselves to gangs and then hearing a fellow officer say “there’s US and there’s THEM, I realized i was part of a much larger “gang” and the badge and uniform were my “colors”. rolling the hood checking for busters is the same as “patrolling the neighborhood for “suspicious characters”.

    protect yourself form them. audio/video document every interaction, have your recordings “verified/ authenticated” before any court hearing where you wish to present them as evidence, and say nothing to the officer. you have the RIGHT to remain silent AND anything you say can and will be used against you, way before the cuffs go on.
    way happier in the private sector, I work at a security firm, and teach gun safety,

  59. Thanks ex-officer. That last line is what really makes your comment look legit to me.

    Now, for those who haven’t figured it out yet, this is what “good cops” do. They go do something else where they can serve and protect in a legitimate fashion that people voluntarily pay for.

    Good work, man.

  60. EX-officer says:

    thanks
    I just want all my fellow citizens to know and understand their rights, and know how to fight these people who call themselves “Law enforcement” . maybe one day there will be good cops who stand up for whats right (not what the law say but really whats RIGHT!) but that day isn’t today

  61. @goldhoarder

    Thanks for your explanation about types of cops.

    Concerning your reply to another poster about Israel and Arabs. Jews were coming to Israel from the end of the 19th century, both because longing for Israel was a 2000 years tradition, and because pogroms and antisemitism were extremely common at the time (they started a bit later in the muslim world). By the time Israel was was established as a state, there were 600 thousand Jews there, and about the same number arrived in a few years after.

    After 1933, many Jews tried to leave Germany and later German occupied countries, but were mostly refused by the countries where they tried to escape and had to return to their death (those who tried to escape to Palestine were turned back by the British).

    Intra-muslim violence in the Middle East escalates quite often to wars with hundreds of thousands dead (like Syria, Iraq-Iran war), so honestly saying that Israeli-Arab conflict (a few tens of thousands dead in a hundred years, most of them not in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict) is such a central thing in the middle east is a huge exaggeration.

    Mistreatment of the Palestinians was real, though I’d say it was more due to stupidity and fear rather than anything else. If you think Israel should not have existed it’s one thing (though I wouldn’t consider it a very informed opinion), but today it is a matter of fact. And unfortunately unlike the US, most small countries in can’t avoid conflict just by choice.

  62. Misha:

    I have a view that the Balfour Declaration of 1917 is tantamount to America’s “original sin” of slavery and at least, in terms of the hindsight 20/20 vision of waves of repercussions.

    Your thoughts, please?

  63. I wouldn’t say so, and I don’t see even theoretically how the repercussions can be comparable. I’d even guess that the Israeli state was a net positive for the world.
    First of all the declaration was not very consequential (except maybe psychologically). In the first place the British made it mainly to gain legitimacy for their conquest of the area. 4 years later they started to back up from the declaration, and by the time German Jews were looking for a place to escape, entrance to Palestine was almost completely forbidden.

    BTW, a possible interpretation of what you say would be that it was OK for Jews to immigrate to the US, but not to a place they considered their historic home.

    If by repercussions you mean the Israeli-Palestinian relationship, then as
    as I said earlier, only a small part of the Jewish Arab conflict had the Palestinians involved. And of course, the conflicts in the area not involving Israel are dwarfing the ones that do.

    If you mean that Jews chose an hostile area to settle – well first, it was still less hostile than Europe turned out to be (even if Arab countries won one of the israeli-Arab war, it’s more likely that the result would be massive forced deportation (like the Jews were thrown out from Arab countries when they gained independence) rather than extermination. Countries like Poland had it much harder being in a hostile environment… And later Taiwan and Singapore had it hard – but they survived and thrived.

  64. Police are worse than all “criminals”!!!

    1) If you are attacked by criminals, you can defend yourself. If you are attacked by police, you cannot defend yourself without long-term imprisonment and being shunned from society.

    2) Police are much more likely to be targeting you than criminals are. Criminals look for easy marks, or are looking for other criminals, or are looking to do business on the black market. Police are targeting you, waiting for you to perform the wrong action or present the wrong attitude.

    3) Police believe what they are doing is moral, and will often act with zeal. They are given accolades and awards from their co-workers, and often given thank you and praise from people in the broader society. Criminals on the other hand often have self-esteem problems, are nervous, or are acting out of desperation and can be deterred or reasoned-down.

    4) If you are under attack by police, other people will almost always give them the benefit of the doubt. If you are under attack by criminals, you can raise the alarm and summon other people to help you.

    5) Criminals are much more likely to limit the amount of force they will use to achieve their goal. Police will often use escalating force to achieve their goal. They will call in reinforcements, throw bombs in your home to get at you, all kinds of things. Criminals have much more limited resources and limited will than police forces.

    Another citizen video of an off-duty cop arresting a drunk girl in a bar…this cop got fired, at least!

  66. Well, actually there was a good cop, but then he was murdered in a cabin in the middle of a California forest.

  67. Tellman, We may never get the total truth about Christopher Dorner, if you look into the judge he went before when he followed the legal path he did not have a chance. The judges name was Judge David Yaffe, Google that name. He is the famous dishonest judge who retired quickly to avoid prosecution of the Richard Fine Lawyer scandal. Yaffe was bribed and proven to be bribed by Los Angeles county so he would never rule against the county, so Dorner would lose. Chief Beck is also hiding things and never addressed the officer who was reported for kicking a man. She was instead promoted. While people want to blame Dorner who can not defend himself now, they don’t give us all the facts. Dorner felt his life was over, he did not attack just anyone but those he felt wronged him and for this he gave his life. In the end he took his own life which is another sign how hopeless he felt about getting a fair trial. We live in a world where lawyers, judges and police can kill people and even profit from it. Yet when people use profanity or say terrible things about them that is worse? WTF What has become of America and its people?

    And don’t come back until you understand both implicitly.

  70. The way that cop treated that women is appalling, and he should be jailed for that crime. I do not care how rich his parents are they should be ashamed of the way he acted, then again I guess they would not be as they are the ones who raised him to act that way. He is not a credit to his family or the people he is employed to protect, to treat a woman half his size that way, shows that he a disgusting piece of work, and if the powers that be let him get away with that, then they all should be fired from their jobs and also charged along with him. I do hope that woman keeps trying to hit them all where it hurt (MONEY)is the only way thugs like him will be made to suffer for the pain and hurt that he has inflicted on that poor woman.If that thug cop was my son or brother I would be so ashamed of him, I would horse whip him myself. Shame on all who act that way and shame on all those who allow it to happen.

  71. I just read that story by Mike Isaacs, how bias is this guy, is he on the police payroll.Cassandra Feuerstein was more than half the cops size, and Mike Isaacs says it is alleged that the cop pushed her. Is he blind I watched it quite a few times and the cop has one of her arms and as they enter the cell he really does push her ( do not know how Mike Isaacs can use the word alleges)Just look at the large pool of blood and any fool can see it was a big push.Cassandra Feuerstein is someones wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend and if that thug can not handle a small drunk women without abuse, then he should not be given any rights over the general public. Mike Isaacs you are a “Horse’s ARSE” and should not work on any paper anywhere. I am disgusted by the whole incident. From Australia

  72. A Skokie police officer has been arrested and charged with felonies in connection with an incident caught on video that shows him allegedly shoving a woman into a jail cell, causing serious injuries, authorities said.

  73. This past summer, after downing about 3/4 of a fifth of 80 proof vodka, I started to choke on my vomit while asleep in my bed. My wife called 911 and stupidly let a cop in the house along with the EMT. Got no medical help but did get a nice beatdown from the cop. I was not arrested, but was put in “protective custody” and taken to jail anyway. I wanted to sue their sorry asses but my wife was afraid that they would revisit the incident and actually charge me with something if I did. Actually, I’m sure they would have. The only good cop is a dead cop.

  74. I’ve always said that it was a shame that so many fire men died on 9/11 and not as many cops

  75. Arthur

    Very astute and a prime distinction. Firemen are the fucking bomb and I’ve never known of a single one that wasn’t.

    They have plenty of gear, but no guns.

    Protect and Serve.

    Ha, imagine a fire squad putting out that line. “Our primary concern is for Firemen safety.” Damn, I just got an allegorical blog post idea.

  76. Oh…another millennial complaining about abusive police :\. The criminal here will get prosecuted, fired, and will likely never work as a professional again. Just imagine what would have happened back in the 50’s and 60’s…we would have never even heard about this.

    They’ve come along way, but progress still needs to be made. ;)

  77. Correction…you could NOT be a millennial….not that we Gen X’ers are much different lol.

  78. Authority is where the problem starts, whether its a badge, gun or just putting someone in charge of something. It often draws the wrong people, what I mean is often bullies, psychopaths (or those with tendencies) and the mentally insecure flock to positions of power to fill a need. Usually the wrong need which ends up giving people power who never should have such power.

    When you have the wrong people involved in jobs such as law enforcement you end up with a judge and jury who feel they are above the law and have the right to do as they wish. The result is out of control police for example. The officer who threw the woman into the cement step for example felt he had the right to do this.

    The solution is to stop the hiring practice and change the way people are tested, ultimately we must remove the problem police, make them accountable and responsible for their actions. Sadly the system is set up to protect them, even if they commit crimes or fail to uphold their oath. This is key, remove any and all immunity when a law is broken or a crime is committed.

    What the police officer did and the problem discussed above is also happening with judges in our courts. They are not held accountable and due to immunity many of them commit crimes, ignore violations and fail to protect people. For example a lawyer commits a crime like perjury and the judge ignores it, then that lawyer can actually say his actions were court approved. Even being wrong the honest, good side ends up losing and being liable where justice should have prevailed.

    If you have not yet heard the Thug cop this story is about is being charged for assault among other things. Now will they prosecute and will he serve jail time. This is the other problem, cops rarely to never end up doing any time or going to jail. Government pretends to prosecute, they go before the same judges who they work with and everything is excused, even if this officer had a prior past or history of events. You can’t put the fox in charge of the hen house, nor can you objectively have cops over cops and lawyers over lawyers. Think about it, we have cops and lawyers over us but they don’ t do the same.

  79. This article by this MORON (because that is what he is) Sickens me to the CORE! Why place hate on every Police Officer out there. We have bad cops just like we have Bad teachers, priest, doctors, lawyers, judges, daycare workers ETC. For you to write up an article like this and bad mouth every officer is just pure shameful on your part. I agree that Mr. Hart committed a crime! I would even dare to call this piece of shit an officer of nothing but crime! There are good officers out there, officers that put there lives on the LINE daily to YES ” PROTECT AND SERVE” while your sleeping they are patrolling your streets idiot! When someone breaks in your home, you don’t call uncle bob you call 911 MORON! When your child come up missing you don’t call anyone but 911! When your out drinking and socializing with friends and family there is an officer that away from his/her family to patrol YOUR streets! Obviously your past experiences with Police/Sheriffs hasn’t been good probably because you are a CRIMINAL! why don’t you put your money where you mouth is and give us an insight of yourself. What your name and date of birth and I can post your record on here and lets see who’s the real criminal. Mr Hart should go to PRISON, The victim should be compensated and he should also be sued civilly for punitive damages. This man has no business in being a law enforcement officer and should get whats coming to him but don’t take this incident of a bad officer or officers to downgrade every officer out there. I wish there was a way for people to decline police services. This way when your getting shot at stabbed etc your on your own and really appreciate what these great men and women do!

  80. Ray….I agree that all law officers are not bad, but your comment about getting shot at or stabbed is erroneous at best. Police do not protect us! Period!! We either protect ourselves and our families or we are victims! Police do not follow us everywhere we go or live in our homes to provide protection for us! It is up to the men of the families to protect themselves and their families as best as we can, because the Police will only be there to put up crime scene tape and to question potential witnesses! They won’t be there to protect you!

  81. David, you’re totally correct. Agreed not all officers are bad, most likely the majority are not. What’s hard for people to accept is why the good officers don’t take a stand against the bad? Ray you’re doing exactly what you blame others, just because some people have bad experiences with police or don’t appreciate what good police do does not mean people are Morons or criminals.

    The fact is police are in fact rarely at a scene when a crime is being committed, police are famous for taking too long to arrive. As far as them patrolling your neighborhood while you’re away I don’t experience that nor have I seen it take place where I live. I’m sure it does in other cities. Another sore issue is you can report a crime to police and sometimes as I’ve experienced they ignore a crime. Even when coming from another officer. If you’ve ever had that happen you can see why people lose respect.

    What police must accept is just one bad seed in your department becomes a poster child for your whole department and sheds a bad image on all police. People are tired of what’s going on, and if you have not noticed there are thousands of documented cases of abuse, crimes and even murder by police. Social media exposes just about 2-3 new cases everyday.

    Back to Michael Hart, he should have been fired without pay from day one. These unfortunate benefits are what also angers people. Its rewarding wrong, and if your excuse is “well that’s the system” then that must be stopped. But I don’t see police stopping something they profit from even if wrong. You know if the video showed another cop taking action to protect the woman or striking back at Officer Hart police would get some respect. When someone gets out of hand regardless of who it is good people act to defend. Hart did not even come to this woman’s aide when he realized what he had done. I’ve read comments of people who commended the officer who did, just something to think about.

  82. @OFFICER Ray

    Hope you got a chance to at least scan through all the comments prior to yours. I’d say that “The Thin Blue Line” has quite a public relations problem on their hands. Wonder why.

    Oh, that’s right: “Obviously your past experiences with Police/Sheriffs hasn’t been good probably because you are a CRIMINAL!”

    So obvious. Everyone who’s outraged must be a criminal. Do you guys really allow yourselves to live under such a silly delusion? Checked the Internet lately? Someone commented on another thread that this stuff has been going on forever but it was almost never seen. Enter the camera phone. All “criminals” have them now, see? Searched YouTube lately for “police brutality?”

    Knew a guy at college who stole my wallet … and really went to a lot of trouble to do it. He is now a cop. There is a thin line between a cop and a criminal. Could a truly honorable, impeccable human understand or relate to a criminal?

  84. Lets do a little reductio ad absurdum in thinking there are any good cops…

    1. Cop does something bad.
    2. Cop covers up by saying “resisting arrest” because said cop does not want to get in to trouble.
    3. All other cops cover for cop doing bad because if they do not they will suffer consequences.
    4. If a cop decides to pipe up that person is an outcast so things like back up and support become difficult to get.
    5. Any “good cop” gets fired or desk duty or harassed so no one pipes up…
    6. So any one trying to be a good cop is in some way relieved of duty.
    7. Any one left in the police “force” (even the name denotes evil) is now scum because they will cover up for the bad cops thus making sure all cops are bad.

    Here is a little proof.

    And so the world turns. Power corrupts.

  85. JustaCop says:

    Sorry to hear you have this opinion of police officers.

    While the actions of this particular officer and, yes, many more officers, this does not mean that all officers are corrupt, evil, lazy or protecting people. I won’t get into the dirt with you and start an argument. The actions of officers who brutally treat citizens is appalling and they need to be punished by going to prison. I agree with you in that. But as someone who wears a badge and strives towards bettering the community, I’m saddened you’ve lumped good officers in with the bad. I’ve arrested a police officer before for DUI. He was in a neighboring jurisdiction. I don’t tolerate officers abusing the power people have given them and they are not above the law.

    I’ve enjoyed a lot of your writing and advice for a long time, but no longer. You’ve lost a reader.

  86. @JustaCop

    If you won’t push it like this and put your job on the line, I have no use for you anyway.

    Also, see the video in my more recent post:

    http://freetheanimal.com/2013/10/cops-the-crosshairs.html

    Now, tell me how it isn’t so that private cops, just as well trained and pro in procedure, lingo, comms (as an ex-military O, I absolutely understand the value of all that) aren’t just kicking your pathetic asses all over the place because their focus is on protecting their customers and their property rather than raising revenue and generating perp walks for the state. Yea, OK, you got me. You’re serving “customers” too.

  87. @JustaCop So you are willing to lump his “bad” article in with all the good ones? Hmm. What was the sentence for your arrested police office in the neighboring jurisdiction??

  88. @NotaCaop, I see little reason, at this late date, to reflexively assume that JustaCop wasn’t lying when he wrote that.

  89. @Officer Ray and @Justacop

    You’re famous.

    A few hundred thousand people will see what you wrote and how I owned you over the next few months.

    Congratulations.

  90. There is one huge elephant in the room issue about police in general. I’ve witnessed this myself from being a cop and from the victim side. “Not being able to accept they may be wrong”. Ego is one of the biggest problems I encountered with Police, working with them and contacting them. The problem can be very simple but if it at all points to them being wrong they refuse to accept it. This is going on here in the posts as we exchange comments.

    Its obvious to most people there is good and bad in everything, there are in fact very good people here who are angry about what’s going on in America today in regards to police. Its obvious police should not be put on full paid leave with benefits when the commit crimes. Its obvious when video evidence is produced a crime has been committed yet some use the word “alleged”. With the addition of social media and the internet events that once were hidden from the public now go viral. What main stream media and local newspapers often did not report honestly about events now is leaked to almost everyone.

    Is it no wonder police hate video recording? How often have you seen police strike a camera or phone from someone? How often have you heard or seen police threaten to arrest someone for video taping. Now any honest, forth coming cop would welcome video evidence. Those who don’t want it are obviously worried about something. This is only one red flag, cops that don’t get caught doing wrong often are in fact bad they just have gotten away with it.

    Justacop: Reveals many of his own personal issues in how he writes and what he states. “I’m sorry you feel that way” is one of the biggest signs of problems when addressing people. The use of the word “But” also means anything stated after that word you don’t mean or is untrue. Plus he does not want to argue because in reality there is no argument he has none. Finally his threats to leave the conversation show immaturity and his need to stay in control. There are many things we can see without knowing someone and just viewing how they write. Some cops and cop supporters are showing people who they are by what they write. @ Richard “You’re right”. :)

    Body language among cops is horrendous and they do it subconsciously, crossing of arms, hands on their weapons are simple examples. Insecure people need to do this as well as people who feel they need to act in control.

    Are cops really as smart as they claim, from my personal experience “NO”, not that they’re stupid however many have barely a high school education. I’ve seen reports written by what appears a kid in elementary school. If you do the research, police departments like Beverly Hills CA hires only the most educated people, it shows in their police issues. Remember people in BH are often lawyers, doctors and people with money, they know what happens if you involved lesser quality police. So education as well as IQ is important.

    I’ll be the first to admit I’m wrong, if you want me to admit, then show me where I’m wrong with links to info that supports your comments, if all you can do is start the name calling game and generalizing plus rationalizing you’re only confirming my experiences and position.

    You have to have been on both sides to see it both ways, there is without a doubt a huge problem among police today. Its only getting worse. Its in our legal system with judges and lawyers as well.

  91. the last pagan says:

    Do I hate the police? : No. Do I trust the police?: Absolutely not.

    At worst, the officer is nothing more than a government sanctioned assassin.
    At best, the officer is a decent individual trying to do a good job and help people.

    As has been indicated, there are probably only a few bad individuals…the rest are decent and hard working.

    Take all the officers in the country, put them in their uniforms, and stand them side by side…they all look the same…I don’t know, nor can I pick out which ones are bad…they all look the same.

    In any first interaction with an officer, you don’t know what motivates them, what state of mind they are in, whether or not they are decent or one of the bad apples.

    For myself, I treat them respectfully, politely, and in a civil manner…..like I would any dangerous animal that can kill you. Come to think of it….you can usually figure out what is motivating the dangerous animal.

    But, like as with any creature that kills….you never, ever, trust them. Never. It can get you hurt or worse.

  92. I have been the victim of police bulling many times. Once was when I was being stripped searched and 3 male officers came in the room to look while the female officer did the search but she had kept the door open as well there was a camera in the room, even though she told them to back up because she was in the middle of a search you think they listened or cared? later when I was released they were throwing a big bag of marijuana around like it was a football in the main area? another time I had an Ex come to my apartment he had a fit and destroyed my place, attacked me and cut some of my hair off with scissors and when the neighbours called the police they (the PIGS) kicked me out of my apartment to let him rummage through my things, take a ring he claimed was an engagement ring that I had a receipt? I tried to tell the police officer to stop him and get him out of my home to let me in my home and I’LL get my ID and things the police officer was requesting from my perp. The police officer told me if I speak one more time I’m going to f*&%ing jail. I called the neighbour to get the landlord as I was stunned that the police were letting him in my place and now stealing my things?! finally after the landlord came she finally got him out of there after over and over again saying he does not live here what is going on here. All the police said to him was if you come back we’ll have to side with her (me) because were giving you a verbal warning not to come back. I asked the A$$hole police officer why he didn’t ask and let me in my place to get him my I.D. I said I am the victim here and thats my apartment not his, you just gave my Ex the power to feel he can now do whatever he wants to me? he said your lease is up your on a month to month its basically not your place.
    When in need of help will I call the police in the future? No! for what so they can join in on the gangbang, no thanks once was enough.

  93. You Sir, are my new hero. I could not agree with you more. I too have spent hours on YouTube looking at videos of psychopathic “peace” officers beating, tasing, kicking and abusing law abiding citizens (usually in handcuffs!) for no reasons whatsoever. I am a Canadian, and we had a case of a man, Robert Dzanski, being tased to death at Vancouver Intl. airport. The pigs did not know they were being rccorded by a citizen on his iphone. The pigs then got together afterward and all 4 of them fabricated a BS story about being assaulted by this poor man. One pig, Monty Robinson, later on killed a cyclist when driving pissed drunk, you have to google “Monty Robinson RCMP” to believe it!

  94. The fact that this cop is not in jail is one more indication of the police state.

  95. The taxpayers of Skokie get screwed again!
