OUTRAGE: Residents Call For Job Of 'Coffee Cop' - wcbstv.com
Of course, he feels the laws apply to everyone but him. He should be fired it seems.
Agent Chu sauntered up. Instead of offering help, like most New Yorkers would, he slapped her with a ticket.
That part made me laugh. Anyone been to New York? Most of them wouldn't help if they saw a person being killed right next to them.
As for this traffic agent. He sounds like a jerk for never cutting anyone some slack, but if a ticket is earned he can't be fired for writing one. Unless he is going beyond that and abusing people's rights.....
The fact that he allegedly has broken traffic laws himself however is problematic, THAT could and should cost him his job if he is abusing his authority simply to "go get a cup of coffee." I think I need more proof of that before I call for the guy's head though.
Police departments need citizen review boards, with the authority to fire bad cops.
Police departments do need to get rid of legitimately bad cops, but civilians have no idea what is and what is not a bad cop, as evidenced day after day on this board.
You want me to prove cops have no idea what a bad cop is? Or will you just stipulate it, and we can go from there.
Just in case you disagree.
Culture Shift: Syracuse mayor right to focus on police misbehavior | syracuse.com
Yep, any cop that is actually convicted of using excessive force certainly deserves a commendation, what the hell is wrong with that mayor? She should be fired.
I stipulate that many cops are bullies and have no business on the force, let alone deciding if other cops are guilty of abusing their authority.
As to your link. I am a firm believer that unions , in any industry, are a joke. Including police unions. We run into this ALL the time with our school to, a teacher does something that is OBVIOUSLY a fire able offense , but the union backs them. Unions suck.
I still say a civilian board would be stupid, and is unneeded. You want to to oversee the police in your community? Run for office. That's simple enough.
Unionization of Government Employees is something that the state allows.
Remember when Air Controllers went on strike? Reagan just told'em to stay the fuck home, and he hired new ones.
If you think police, teacher, or any other union suck, then blame you're government administrators for allowing them to exist: Texas, for example, outlaws teacher unionization.
Civilian oversight boards work in a lot of cities, like New York. Why do you think it is a bad idea when it works more often than not? Or do you just think that cops shouldn't have to answer to the people who actually pay their salaries?
I hate all unions. That was the only point I was making.
