  1. Yes.
    Too many exceptions.
    But, a closed system is the rule with few exceptions.

  2. The State’s attorney or prosecutor need to charge the dirty cops.

    • We need the good cops to weed-out and identify the bad cops to protect and serve the public.
      That good cops do not tend to weed-out and identify bad cops and thereby fail to protect and serve the public strongly suggests that there are no real good cops.

    • @zerooskul You believe it’s ok and or acceptable to be HOMOSEXUAL in 2020 correct? 🤔

      In 2014, the Council on Women and Girls (CWG) launched a specific work stream called “Advancing Equity for Women and Girls of Color”
      There are 8 million minority-owned firms in the U.S.—a 38% increase since 2007.

    • @Freedom & Liberty Bot Hmm, just a little projection there. Hipocrasy at its finest.

  3. As long as they can turn them off at will….we have no chance!!!

      You just explained the entire black community…. 50 million people… That’s why police do it, fight fire with fire… you don’t bring a knife to a gun fight…… You DOMINATE the streets in any way necessary…. or you will lose every time.

    A cop that doesn’t turn in a bad cop is also a bad cop. Hundreds and hundreds of videos where the alleged “good cops” are watching the bad cops plant evidence, make up charges, batter citizens and they say and remain the blue wall of silence.

    • @Freedom & Liberty Bot you would have been dead

    • @Freedom & Liberty Bot so the racist diatribe becomes murderous “if only” sick dude, sick

    • @Freedom & Liberty Bot “I’d be spraying bullets all over every day”… You’ve never been in a fight in your life. Go back to your video games, kid.

  5. No not all cops are bad BUT the ones that are bad are really BAD!

  6. Cops: The Original Union Thugs.

    In all Honesty even the good ones are bad because even if they know of bad behavior they won’t talk up won’t call out bad behavior mostly because of fear it’s a fraternity that’s why there unions , city managers the mayor and commissioner of police protect them and this is why
    F.O.P fraternal order of police protects their bad behavior we are fighting a powerful enemy and it goes all the way to the governors , senators and those that run our municipalities so we have a long fight ahead of us

      @zerooskul Embrace your homosexuality, princess. You’ll be far less bitter.

    • @Freedom & Liberty Bot I boycott China.
      You are a bot.

    • @Freedom & Liberty Bot Why not admit that kneeling on someone’s neck for five minutes after they have lost consciousness is murder?

  9. Then I suggest that the good cops clean up their own. We’re tired of the bad ones period.

    • @Larry Garland no they don’t. They cover the bad ones up, they let them slide way to often. No cop would have multiple complaints against them if that were true.

    • @Larry Garland I’d side with that statement, if I had seen one of those cops say get off the man’s neck we have him subdued already, but I watched 3 of them allow it. I’m not saying all cops are bad at all, but the good ones need to run the bad ones out the moment they see any corrupt behavior. We all know that they don’t. I’m simply suggesting that they should probably start too more than they do already.

I think that’s why you keep coming at me with slow joe quotes but you better come to grips my gut but Good night Gatta work tomorrow ya kno

    • Glock Coley: Where are murders taking place?
      If you will be killed by police whether you are a criminal or not, what does it matter if you commit a crime that does not deserve the death penalty?
      Who exactly is this Democrat who started it?
      What is the proof?
      Stop behaving as a liar; reality matters.

    Better screening could keep out those who could become bad cops.

    • Freedom & Liberty Bot | June 10, 2020 at 1:14 PM | Reply

      Democrats and the media fully endorsed the riots and today say nothing about the hatred, violence or drugs going on in the black community….. These are the issues that need to be discussed, not bad cops, it’s the bad people and bad communities that caused these problems, cops are just reacting to it. They love division and hatred, without it, they could never win an election. This is the whole problem in a nutshell.

    • Yes let’s get miss cleo to do a psychological test on people before they become cops.

      @Rosalyn Jeffery you’re a Chinease BOT sowing discord.

  13. This year’s presidential election will decide if America will continue its downward path into a feudalistic kleptocracy or not.
    4 more years of a reality TV carnival barker that hookwinked enough voters the first time around is something this nation literally cannot afford anymore.
    Complacency is the biggest enemy around. Vote. And keep an eye on your voter status. That’s what the cons will attack soon enough when their balls are already getting close to the buzzsaw

    • @White Jesus You have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. Did you even read the Mueller report? I don’t know why I’m even talking to you as you are clearly a troll.

    • @Brady N Trump has a criminal genius mind. He always comes out on top. The day I see this career criminal in prison though, I’ll then retract my current opinion here. Sure, MCConnell and co. are running interference, but, still, Trump is there. AND, remember, just when you thought the GOP couldn’t lie, cheat, and steal any more, here comes rationalized martial law and no presidential election soon. Though, the General apologizing for supporting Trump’s church stunt the other day does give one some hope.

    • @Brady N Bunker Bonespurs down to 39% approval per usually favorable Rasmussen. Wonder what it will drop to after invading Seattle?

    • @Brady N Trump is weak, cowardly, and low IQ. He is literally too stupid to understand how cowardly and weak he looks when he impotently threatens people with criminal violence that he falsely believes he can command other people to commit. We have already established that the army is not going to start shooting American citizens, even if Trump orders them to. Once again, he looks like just what he is, a weakling and a loser.

    • @Brady N He makes things up instead of learning about them. This only leads to disaster, as the nation now is experiencing with respect to the corona virus. How long before a disaster caused by Trump knocks you over ? Close your eyes to Trump, and he will knock you over and pick your pocket on the way out. Good luck with him

    Not every cop is a bad cop but they are COMPLICIT when they stand by and see corruption and criminal cop behavior and do nothing.These good cops say and do nothing when they witness and sign off on false reports. Quit with the “few bad apples” BS

  18. The Chief of Police in Minnesota got it right! DEFUND AND DISMANTLE THE UNION, NOT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT!

    Not all, but like doctor’s, cops usually grow cold, get a God complex. Many start out good, but get greedy then turn dirty

  20. Not every cop is a bad cop, but every bad cop makes all cops look bad.
