    Wrong is wrong. People should stop protecting within their groups.
    I agree.

    If they have ever been aware and was complicit in a dirty action by a cop going unpunished, they cannot be a good cop. I dont care how fantastic they are otherwise.

    I'd also like to see cops complicit in cover ups getting jail time.

    I just can't imagine at lest one doing no time. The idea just doesn't fit in my brain.

    Might as well do it to people that are actually hurting society on a widespread level , no?

    (I still don't believe in mass for profit incarceration )
    It is kind of funny to think of protesting while following the rules, but I am for respectful protest where possible, so yeah, they should social distance and wear masks.

    I did notice that at least one of the protest groups who were not social distancing in a protest in DC later said they all lived together but the news crew filming them wouldn't listen to them when they told them that.

    I don't support doubling down on bad policies of the past.

    Scoots, you amaze me with your idealism.

    To me, this is what is deeply embedded in our country: people in positions of power get away with all kinds of crap like this ó every damn day.

    The guy kneeling should absolutely be getting jail time. The others, while complicit, I think will be charged, but I can't see them doing jail time. Rather likely to never work in law enforcement again while maybe being handed down some combination of community service and a large fine.

    All I know for sure is the city of Minneapolis is going to be paying George Floyd's family a **** ton of money when that lawsuit is settled.
    Convicted of manslaughter I can see, but that's still not getting off.

    Minneapolis is going to declare bankruptcy to dodge the settlement.

    Is it true that the officer who killed this man has received a dozen complaints and never once been subjected to any sort of corrective action?
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    Even if there was nothing they could do about it?

    Like a cop gets free coffee and it's against the rules is their partner not reporting them then a bad cop? What if he does report him and then the free coffee cop is then not punished ... so he goes unpunished, what more was his partner supposed to do?

    Then replace "free coffee" with "letting someone off a ticket against regulations" or any number of escalating common cop activities where the rules were written by lawyers and all the police at every level ignore them, and often to the benefit of the public.

    Then we have the behavior by police that is trained and encouraged like entrapment and targeting people for fines, property seizures, and using over the top physical responses all within policy that are far worse in my opinion. Those things are not even the blue line, there is nothing to report. There is nothing to punish.

    I had a friend who bought some papers, got pulled over as he left the store, the police searched his car, found the papers, found "too much cash", then asked if the address on his license was correct, he said yes though it wasn't his address, it was his parents address. The found a bunch of pot "residue" in his car, concluded he was a drug dealer (he was, just pot, and just his friends), and tried to seize his parents house, cars, all their belongings, etc. A lot of the police' worst behavior is not only legal, it's supported all the way up to the top in DC.

    These guys don't have enough power though. I don't think anybody above them will put their *** on the line to protect them.
