    Then how do you explain what we see? If it is a minority, how do they know the other officers will lie to protect them? Wouldn’t those bad apples be terrified of being found out?

    How do you explain the chiefs of police of two major departments admitting that testifying is a common occurrence?

    You can’t say the case isn’t made. You can say you don’t care.

    Murders occur everyday and usually are not front page or top of the MSM News. When a LE officer uses lethal force, it is the top of the fold, top of the news.

    I suggest, if the agency in you community has a ride along program, that you avail yourself of the opportunity. One local probation officer in the county where I live went on a ride along on the night the agency was conducting a stake out of Robbery's of Pizza Delivery Drivers.

    One officer acted as the delivery driver and responded to an address in the area where there had been several such Robbery's. As the officer got out of the vehicle with a pizza box, he was met by a 14-year old boy who was armed with a pistol. The young man raised the weapon and pointed it at the offer's head, and was shot dead by every office on scene.

    The PO was shell shocked and the officers numb when they found out that age of the young man, however, they were not judged to have done anything wrong. Policy was followed and the death review board found he had an extensive juvenile record, as did his older siblings, one of whom was in prison at the time of the shooting. He was a chronic truant and at the time had a probation warrant for his arrest.

    Yet it made the front page above the fold of the paper.

    Yes, before all the videos of cops beating and killing people for no apparent reason, none of that stuff as ever mentioned. Damn those people for exposing the crap that some cops pull on a regular basis. The blue line shielded all that from the public before then.

    wry is right, and so are you, bulldog.

    It seemed in Memphis once upon a time, that a guy was shot down in the back every week for trying 'to escape.'

    Thank God those days are going away.

    Once again, you ignore the points being made, and try the weakest of all justifications, well, if you knew, you wouldn’t be so critical. That is the weakest of all justifications.

    So points that you have ignored are widespread lying by police. Not just my conclusion, but the conclusion of the Chief of Police for San Francisco. Someone who is literally in the know, someone who has all those years of doing far more than a “ride along” to see the truth. But you ignore that point, and so we must assume you have no response to it.

    It was a justified use of force. Crap. In Georgia, someone finally decided to look at the cases. This is what they found. Nearly half the people shot by cops in Georgia were unarmed, or shot in the back. OVER THE LINE: Police shootings in Georgia

    Every one of those cases when investigated was determined to be “justified” because the cops always use the same words. I was afeared for my life.

    John Geer was shot while he had his hands up. The Police Department stymied the investigation for TWO YEARS. Refusing to provide information to the District Attorney because it was an internal investigation. Finally the family got the records during the lawsuit, and what do you know, then the cop is fired and charged the very next day.

    TWO YEARS of doing everything possible to stonewall the investigation. If it takes that long to conduct a thorough investigation, how is it that the people who shoot cops are on death row in the same time?

    All of this is well known. All of this is so well known that you don’t even try denying it. You just offer the weakest excuse, well go out there and see. Let the cops give me the same smoke and mirrors bullshit. This is the truth. We live out there. We know what happens, because we see it first. Rapists don’t target cops first. They don’t rob cops. They don’t do any of that shit to a cop. When a cop gets a paper cut, some idiot like you rushes out and screams war on cops.

    But here is the funny thing. The cops don’t even pretend that they aren’t doing it. When caught, they have the Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights to protect them. Let’s say I am sitting in my living room and someone breaks down my door and I shoot them. I’ve just shot a home invader. First of all when the cops show up, I’m headed downtown to answer a lot of questions. If I tell them I want a lawyer, they’ll tell me that might make me look guilty. In fact, the cops just argued before the Supreme Court that the suspect asking for a lawyer didn’t count, because he said he wanted a “lawyer dog”. So no worries. If I stop answering questions, that can be determined to be an admission of guilt.

    But if I am a cop, it is against the law to interview me without a lawyer. I have a week, or more, to get over the emotional trauma of the event before I am required to answer questions. Then the answers can be no comment, and refuse to answer and no problem. You can’t even threaten their job for that, as it is against the law.

    What Is the Police Officers' Bill of Rights?

    Oh, and when you interview the cop, it has to be during reasonable hours, with reasonable breaks as needed. Me, as long as they want to talk, I’m expected to answer questions. I’m not part of the thin blue line you see.

    In conclusion. We know the shootings are not justified in reality, because a citizen who shot someone in the back claiming to be afeared for their life, would be prosecuted. But cops are special. Not short bus kid special, the other kind, like made men in the Mafia, they’re in, and nobody can touch them.

    We know the police lie regularly. Judges and Lawyers said that they believed the cops were lying in one case out of five. If there are a hundred cases in court tomorrow, in at least twenty of them, the cops will be committing FELONIES. Perjury is a Felony in every single state, including California.

    But we just don’t understand. It’s so tough, or something.

    More infrequent, but not going away. Not by a long shot.

    Yeah, they are going away, and you are wrong.
