  3. “Some” People don’t go into law enforcement to end crime, they do it for the power trip.

  4. How does the Union hold the bad cops accountable? They cannot prosecute them so what, the bad cops just lose their jobs? That’s no punishment for killing an unarmed 13 year old.

  5. All police officers should be made to take a lie detector test before filing a report

      Lie detectors are classic pseudo science and should be outlawed as evidence. I agree with your intent, but this is not a effective means for reform.

    • @Progressive Humanist before you can work for the FBI you need to pass a lie detector test. That’s enough for me

    A good start would be to stop calling them law enforcement and start calling them Communty Public Safety.

    Absolute power corrupts Absolutely

  8. The people with some of the highest authority in the country are feeling attacked by others with no authority?

    Yeah, makes sense.

    Yes Ma’am . More effort to weed out the people who are not right for the job has to be done before hiring .

  10. Yes ma’am!! You sound like my Dad. He always told me just to keep doing the next right thing, & you can’t go wrong!

    This principle should be nationwide . If bad behavior is called out & punished , it will bolster morale among the rank and file . The badge will carry honor because those dishonoring it will be gotten rid of .

  12. A big part of the problem is, the police unions donate large amounts of money to the election campaigns of the district attorney they endorse ! That is a direct conflict of interest ! That elected District attorney is responsible for bring charges, and prosecuting bad cops ! We need to make it illegal for police unions to donate money to D.A. election campaigns !

      Well said Peter Mohr. May I also add that this Fraternal Order also not only endorses political candidates, but also supports Circuit Judgeships on an national scale, making them one of the most powerful and emboldened unions in these United States…

    The community is the actual group that wants what it has always wanted:. Real law, and honest accountable order!

    I would like for them to change the standards on paper because everything an officer does can’t be called “within policy”. Also, they should do the simulation fact machine test every three months just like they do with their firearms qualifications. Also, the test result for the simulator facts machine qualification results should be available to the public upon request. It’s a video of what the officer did and where his rounds went after he fires it.

  15. Thank goodness there are organizations for this

    Thank you America 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    For trying to help make our country a more lawful place to live
    May the sweet peace of Jesus Christ and God Almighty bless and keep you safe all the days of your life

  17. She’s either deluded or evil. Like she’s never heard of the thin blue line.

    She’s so straightforward: How can we ask them to do what’s right unless we’re doing what’s right?

    “You know, there’s a, uh — during World War II, you know, Roosevelt came up with a thing that uh, you know was totally different than a, than the, you know he called it you know the, World War II, he had the war… the war production board.”

    — Joe Biden
