IF cops only did as they’re supposed to do — if the fiction we were taught about cops as “the good guys” as kids was true, then the institution of necessary enforcement would / could be acceptable. However, given the degree to which cops have become a law ignoring violent gang of liars and harassers, as well as their proven (statistically) violent domestic abuse rate (40+%),there is no respect left and rather than being protected, we’re placed at increased risk of becoming victims of violence (at the hands of cops).Never been called ignorant before, for supporting something so necessary as having laws and enforcing them. If that makes me ignorant then I’m not sure what it makes you, and I’ll take that kind of ignorant over whatever it is you propose.
Anyhow, if this were to all fall apart and there were no cops, I like my odds. But I don’t want to pile up bodies on my property and I don’t want innocent people to die at the hands of pieces of shit that are excited by the idea of no LE, so even though I think I would be fairly well protected and capable in that unlikelihood, I would still like there to be law and order. And until that can be done by perfect robots, it will be done by humans and humans err, on and off the clock.
Let some of the blood drain out of your testboner and back into your brain and you’ll see my point.
More correctly, its the lack of willingness to let the police stop this shit.Thought it was lack of police in Portland just saying....
What percentage of pedo priests would be acceptable to you?I know several cops. Some are relatives, a couple at the Masonic lodge, one from church. All of them are damn good guys. I know of an ex-cop, that got kicked off the force, who abused his power (at least the one time he got got) who I always felt was a creep anyway (reminded me of Uncle Fester). Sure, there are is a minority of bad cops (like there's a minority of bad anything),and unfortunately their union tends to protect them and they get away with crap a few times before something is done.
So. I currently know 3 cops who abuse their kids, girlfriend, wife. You think 40% is an imaginary and arbitrary figure? OK... go bury yourself back underneath a rock. Cover your eyes, ears and mouth.I have cop friends and relatives. 0% are abusers. That means "none" in Rio Linda. I can't not accept what doesn't exist.
