WTF is wrong with police? I am shattered when I read stuff like this. I would like to believe it does not happen. Not in Canada, let alone 30 minutes drive from where we live!? I grew up respecting the police . believing in the police - that they would help me and protect me. I even dated a couple. ;-) So when I read about police brutality like this it blows my mind!
Watch and read this:
Then to read he ONLY GETS A YEAR! WTF? This is someone we trust, do you see how he keeps beating this poor man? AND you bet he is afraid! I would be too. This police officer will be back to work after his sentence?? WILL he even serve a DAY? This is a nightmare - imagine if someone was medicating and met this sort of police officer!?
For example if it was someone like my son that had a bone disease - a break can mean more pain for him and improper healing, leading to a life full of even more pain and talk about PTSD. He should serve MORE time IMO.
As for the 2 side kicks - also terrible examples of abuse of control.
Today I read about an 80 year old woman, tazered by police after found wondering the streets at 3:00am with a bread knife- HELLO!
What kind of police training do you need!? What kind of education do you need to be a police officer? Is there ANY compassion test they take? Could they have not knockedthe butter knife out of her hands with a stick? COME ON! She was tazerd twice which can only lead me to believe it was a knee jerk reaction of the other police officer - after she was already down? So many questions. I hope I'm not the only one asking. What IF it was YOUR son... what if it was your mom? We need to think like that, because it very well might be one day.
This thing where police do not have a jury, only a judge IS BULLSHIT.. it will only end when we demand it to end.
I AM thankful I have met a few good police officers in my lifetime to help me believe there is hope. xox <><
