    Outrage Over Footage of Police Officer Beating a Black Man in North Carolina

    Most of the facts have already been examined. The guilty officer, for a wonder, resigned. I fully expected to read that he feared for his life. Not this time.

    At one time I wanted to join the police force, but after seeing the shit they have to deal with, and get no respect, I don't want that headache.

    Just think every day, they wake up , get dressed, if married, kiss their family goodbye, not knowing if this is their last day on Earth.. Not saying what these 2 did was okay, but remember that you guys want the rest of US to give up our guns, so people like this will be there to .....Protect?

    So why did he resign? And why did his superiors say that he did in fact do something wrong.

    My guesstimate is that 95% or more of cops are good cops. My only beef with them is when they protect the bad cops.

    Thank goodness Officer Ruggiero was on the scene to protect the fine citizens of Asheville from jaywalkers.

    The funny thing is, they are driving out the best, and now have to accept less than perfect. The cops of the future will be worse because the good guys won't take the job.

    Just makes you all warm and fuzzy so you want to give up your guns, right?
