    Its a cop, its guilty, no trail needed. Good jailing.

  • t.

    So…a great example that there is no “double standard'”

    T.,
    Let me ask you this; is it acceptable to have a cowardly woman beater on the force? We all get upset with our significant others but a confident man does not need to “control” others. Real men are dauntless and valiant. No double standard just accountability and equal prosecution. Does this story somehow upset you? Pigs in general have sociopathic issue such as this type behavior i.e. suicide, criminal and violent behavior towards woman, fear of strong men, sexual deviance, molestation of children, and even murder. This story is not unique! The high divorce amongst pigs is legendary. It is a very insecure woman that fornicates and has relations with pigs. I mean what type of woman wants to be with a man who has tendency to snap, lose control, very low self confidence and self esteem, inferiority complex, no integrity, and all sorts of mental issues.
    Real men make something with their hands, build not destroy, love not hurt, defend not oppress, compassion not judge, but most important THINK AND NOT OBEY.
    I think you know that the police have done all this negative publicity to themselves. Your inability to chance is also your downfall. We will always have cops but serious change is happening in this country and instead of embracing it, if your a good cop, you cops are doing all that you can to stop progress, LOL. You will have to conform to the people’s wishes.

    OATH

    So according to Glenn, not only does a badge not grant extra rights, it actually strips you of your rights as well? Nice!

  • t.

    Devil: Has he been convicted? Nope. But to a bigger argument. As I have said many times…not only does having a badge NOT grant “extra” rights….we have to give up many of the rights that you take for granted. These instances is a great example. What other professional would face losing his job, or lose his job from a situation like this?? None. YOU can get arrested for darn near anything and never suffer any employment related repercussions. Police officers face job repercussions from a speeding tickets. There is your true double standard…officers give up rights that everyone else enjoys.

  • john

    @ t not one pig in Manchester NH gets speeding tickets the cops watch out for the thin blue line,they protect the force and there gangster buddies(other officers). cops do not give shit up theyjust exist from hard earned tax dollars that myself and everyone else are forced to pay for a gang of thugs.

  • Common Sense

    T.,
    In theory your argument holds a lot of weight, but the reality that is not the case. First, you don’t have to be a cop if you can’t handle the rigorous nature of the job, plain and simple. No one is holding a gun to your head. Their are rules to all employee/employer relationships. If you break those rules you may be fired. Again this is not a hard concept to grasp.
    Second, we as society hire police officers to protect us and uphold the law with dignity and respect for our rights. That is no longer the case because of upper rank bad management that is outright criminal and corrupt on down to the security guard at the walmart. LOL, you do it to yourselves and you still can’t realize that maybe just maybe your policies are wrong. In the military we are taught that the hearts and minds of the population are the key to a successful campaign. There have been many books written on this very subject. Now the police being a civilian psuedo paramilitary group should know this.
    Third, criminal behavior will get you kicked out of a lot of professions. Come on man, you can’t tell that an attorney is not held accountable, same thing with doctors, accountants, medics, firemen, business men, you name it. They seem to understand this and by professionally speaking, most of these occupation don’t the nasty reputation you have given yourselves or the criminal deviance that your known for, except maybe bankers. LOL.
    Point of the matter is this. If you break the law, you get what you deserve, RIGHT! Cry me a river you baby…………………………….Laughable

    Never forget the cop that raped a THREE MONTH OLD INFANT *and* a ONE YEAR OLD CHILD! When you see common sense, t., underoath, psosgt and all the other shills spew their propaganda here, remember, THIS IS WHAT THEY STAND FOR, AND THIS IS WHAT THEY DEFEND!

    Wichita KS police officer Officer Joseph T. McGill, 28, was convicted today of committing a sexual act on a 3-month-old child and a 1-year-old child. Officer McGill pleaded guilty in January 2012 in an unrelated case to sexual battery while on duty as a police officer and was sentenced to three years probation. Those charges stemmed from separate incidents in November 2010 and February 2011. The judge set sentencing for March 1: http://www.kansas.com/2013/01/24/2649372/former-police-officer-convicted.html

  • t.

    Devil: Let’s go to your last point first. Simply this…show me. Show me any attorney, doctor, fireman (closer with these one)….show me one that got charged with a misdemenaor that had any repercussion from it.

    As for the military and the hearts and mi D’s of the people. Read the news lately? Soldiers committing criminal act after criminal act…both abroad and at home. Not in any way trying to slam the military…but not exactly the pillars you point them out to be.

    What criminal policies re o talking about? Are you gonna tell me you’re like @934 who claimed to have done all this research and reading and found policies ordering police officers to lie. Well, bull. I didn’t even challenge him to prove because I know he can’t.

    As for your first “point”. Ya know last I knew….now you conspiracy types may know more than I…but last I knew police officers aren’t implanted with a “know everything, doeverythibg right, never make a mistake, never sin, never have family problems,never have financial problems” chip. Cops are just people. Engineers design planes that fall out of the sky. Chefs cook meals that taste bad. Taxi drivers get lost. People. Nobodies perfect. If this officer did this and is convicted…so be it. I just pointed out that it is crystal clear evidence that there is no “double standard” like so many claim around here.

    So nice try I guess.

    Let me not mince words here….

    The military is more HONORABLE job than any LEO’s…

    The military holds their own accountable also…

    Have you ever served in any capacity?

    As many years you have in as a LEO, I’m sure you seen 1 of ‘ur fellow LEO go over the line and you just turn your head like you didn’t see it..

    T,

    I can spend hours linking and naming for you departments, not individuals like in the military but departments that are being investigated by the DOJ, have agreed to federal monitors or are under the supervision of courts to fix/root out corruption.

    Link me a story about how the 2nd ranger battalion marched through a town stomping on rights and agreed to federal monitoring like the Seattle PD did. Link me a story how the 2nd ACR is named as a unit in an investigation into stopping citizens from filming them and had to receive guidelines, like the Baltimore PD, did from the DOJ.

    I know you are not military bashing but it is not a comparison. The military falls under civilian leadership even though it has it’s own judicial system. No such thing exisit for the police. To your take that there are bad peoples in everywalk and profession, true. The main difference is engineers do not sabotage planes and cooks usually dont make bad meals on purpose. The police, when they engage in misconduct and etc, innocent people are fucked over and once again sure you can list individual names but I can list departments where it is more than 1 cop. Take the Milwaukee PD and their illegal body cavity searches. How long did that cop get away with it for? 2 years and 32 cops trestified he did it and it was not the first story involving this illegal practice.

    Sure yous ee a bad doctor, lawyer or whatever but when it comes to the police and yous ee a bad cop that usually involves corruption/misconduct, you typically see issues legally for them cases dismissed and departments as a whole comming under scrutiny

  • t.

    YF: I don’t want to go there. But stories of oh…soldiers pissing on dead bodies, or sneaking out at night and slaughtering a village…or the leaders being investigated / disciplined for their sexcapaids. I vacationed done around Fort Bragg last summer. All it is is soldier after soldier getting arrested for DUI, beating his wife, murder. It fills the news. So don’t get sanctimonious with me. Please, don’t even try. And that’s not even taking into account the differences in the “rules of engagement” between the police and the military. I’d rather not go down this road, it produces nothing.

    As for your (IMO) very misquided ideas about police misconduct and misconduct in other professions. The internet teems with stories of crooked lawyers, and builders, and doctors. Car companies whose engineers fail but the companies cover it up. Stockbrokers stealing peoples life savings. Retail employees robbing their employers blind. Mechanics cheating folks. Its people. And people aren’t perfect.

    Police misconduct does occur as does police abuse. I’ve put up the simple math numbers before….multiple millions of contacts each day. MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS. You you dwell on the very few bad or questionable contacts. And as for DOJ oversight. That is often like many other things….its basically “taking a plea”. Its far simpler and less costly to must go along with it.

    POLICE OFFICER RAPES A THREE MONTH OLD INFANT AND A ONE YEAR OLD CHILD!

    @T

    A cop just escaped being charged for trying to have sex with a minor. Why? Because the officers ended the sting as soon as they knew it was a cop. Now he is still free to persue teen girls.

    Ya, no double standard. /Sarcasm

    I wish i had the article to post. But did you by chance hear of the colonel who noted that his boys in war have stricter rules of engagement than a cop on the streets of the States? Or are you going to

  • shawn

    Are you going to tell me a full bird colonel doesn’t know what he is talking about?

  • t.

    IF he said that, and IF he really believes that, he’s either lying or an inexperienced cool who knows not what he is saying. So, basically either lying or wrong.

  • steve

    the military men and wemon have gone through more than people think ptsd is real. ive been in 3 active confrontations for my country. when i 1st got out i stayed at home with my mom. she asked me why i would sceam get down .go low . fire hot. then everybody up out of your racks. im over it now but i think the newer soldier has gone through a different war more pain to bring home so shut the fuck up unless you been there. the cop that beats his wife is just acting his power out against her like he does on the street.the usual pig. and i pay my taxes you asshole cop
    “common sense”

  • YankeeFan

    T,

    I do not talk about individual stories of police officers going crooked but you,like common did go there and now I know what you think of troopers. I can link you all day major departments beleagured with investigations at the hands of the DOJ, or have agreed to federal monitors or are under the suprevision of courts to root out and fix corupotion. So before you go there you best understand I never go after some cop for some criminal act like yous ee with lawyers or doctors. I am talking about opening the newspaper and reading about the chicago pd and seeing they are under a DOJ investigation for their interrogation practices as they lead the nation in confirmed false confessions or the Oakland PD still under court supervision to fix their corruption and theys till haven’t. If you go back and look at what I said, I did not talk about individual acts committed by baddies. I will say it again..the enxt time I hear about a full military unit doing the things in mass as a unit like we read about the police doing, I will be the first to let you know!!

  • YankeeFan

    As far as rules of engagements, I can tell you that the military does not have loose rules of engagement. Working at a corps level assignment, I got to know many generals and from what I learned just from casual talks and eharing things its like as Tom Berringer said in Platoon…trying to fight a war with one hand tied around your balls. I do not know police rules and do not care but the military does not have casual or loose rules in that regard!

  • YankeeFan

    T,

    I will clear the air as I do not want to go down a raod either as we have a good repore. I have never done a comparison between soldiers and police. It is 2 different worlds. I know well what you speak of as I saw enough of the drunken fighting, debauchery first hand. People, in any profession will do stupid things and I never focus on singular acts as bad people are bad people. I

    I will clear the air as I do not want to go down a raod either as we have a good repore. I have never done a comparison between soldiers and police. It is 2 different worlds. I know well what you speak of as I saw enough of the drunken fighting, debauchery first hand. People, in any profession will do stupid things and I never focus on singular acts as bad people are bad people. I look at stories involving whole departments and wonder wtf. Like the Milwaukee PD and that officer conducting body cavity searches in violation of the 4th over a 2 year period with 32 officers testifying. That to me is not a single actbut officers covering up for another as none stopped it and if you stand by and watch someone break the law, regardless what you do, you are just as guilty and imo worse than the perp. If I wanted to get sanctimonous, I would feed you the daily news feed from injustice everywhere that has news stories of officers arrested for DUI, rape, domestic violence, acts of pedophelia and all the acts of cops committing some form of “misconduct” in office. I dont focus on these as Like your soldier stories these cops are doing the same thing and they are just baddies doing dumb shit. The poster When Tennesse Pigs Fly always stated in commentary that yes It is true crime rates are dropping but the numbers of police complaints are on the rise and the DOJ even reactivated a formerly retired branch to deal with all the investigations into police departments nation wide and to me that is something worth discussing.

    Once again, the individual I do not care about as bad people exist. It is when it is something that has permeated the department because then you always see
    civil rights abuses or the potential for civil rights abuses and that is something we all, especially police, should be concerned about!

  • t.

    YF: Stories are stories are stories. Everyday in the paper its lawyers, doctors, stockbrokers, politicians, teachers, truck drivers, soldiers, cops, fireman….problems are everywhere. And I’m not trying to run down anyone. Someone put up soldiers as some pillar of ethical behavior and righteousness… and I just pointed out that as a statement, that clearly isn’t true. A squad of gguys standing around pissing on a bunch of dead bodies….the photo only surfacing much later. Thats a sgaud. And someone covered it up for a long time. And the Brigg stays full. WE just don’t hear about it often as the military handles it internally. As do doctors, and lawyers, and most of all corporateAmerica. And all of that’s OK. But pretending that it doesn’t happen is just lying to yourself.

    As for Tenn. Pigs. Crime rates are dropping g. Assaults on the police are also falling too. Most of that is due to more police officer and better tactics. Us (stopping more folks, interacting with them, being seen more) doing our jobs right…is going to lead to complaints. People are never happy to get a ticket, or arrested. The criminals aren’t happy with being stopped from committing their crimes. The biggest complaint we get (and I’m sure every department gets) are “demeanor complaints”. People don’t like the way they were spoken to. I review video tapes of them all the time. And being. Told to slow down I drive more carefully isn’t wrong. People now have adopted the “squeaky wheel” concept and bitch about everything. I work in a very unique field…one in which the “ciusromer” is almost always wrong. A neighboring department just had the ACLU show up wanting an officers butt for stopping / arresting almost nothing but Hispanics. Unbelievably, the department stood UUP to them, and showed them the evidence that their was virtually nothing but Hispanics where he worked / patrolled. None of the claims that the ACLU said true, and the slinked off.

    There is just so much more to it. Does 18 bad officer out of 5000 make the whole department bad? How about 1 in a department t of 20? Don’t read too much into DOJ complaints (lots of people complain about the DOJ itself) or into departments agreeing to things. The lack of intestinal fortitude is rampant of police leaders at the top levels. The chiefs and sheriffs play the political game of popularity. The rest of don’t worryabout trying to be popular (especially with the people that we deal with everyday).

  • k9dude

    I am a retired Air Force K-9 cop with 20 yrs of military experience and have been a civilian K-9 law enforcement officer for 7 yrs. I can talk to both sides of military and civilian law enforcement. I will say that t. is dead wrong about the military rules of engagement being more liberal than civilian law enforcement. A military member is not allowed to “draw” or point their weapon unless they are going to shoot. This includes handguns which must remain in the holster until you are going to shoot. As a civilian Law Enforcement Officer I can draw my weapon and have it at the ready without the requirement of discharging.

    Of course t. if your talking about a “wartime” senario when it comes to rules of engagement then there can be no comparision drawn. Civilian Law Enforcement is not carrying out their duties in a war zone. They are not being actively pursued by an enemy force that is intent upon killing them for the purpose of domination.

    All I can say to all of these “posters” here and on the other forums is this: Are there “bad” cops? YES! Are there even more good cops that aren’t video’d while doing a perfect traffic stop while being curtious and by the book? YES!!! Those video’s are boring! Nobody gets their jolly’s off of watching a good cop doing the right thing.

    For my whole adult life I have strapped a gun to my side on a daily basis and left my house, kissed my wife and kids with all of us knowing that Dad has a better chance of never coming home than anyone else’s Dad. I’m not saying this for sympathy or thanks and I don’t do it for the thanks, I do it because I honestly want to make my community and my country a safer place for my family and the citizens I’m sworn to protect. I can also honestly say that the men and women I work with hold the same set of values! Of course there are exceptions and those people go away!

  • YankeeFan

    Now I can agree with what you have said but let me offer this. Thre is a reason when the military does bad things I cringe as it cast a negative light on the military. There is a reason all military gets labeled as baby killers. It is because the actions of a few. This is very true with the Police. if 1 or 5 or 10 are bad it doesnt mean all are but it cast aspersions on them and like it or not, thats the way it is. I am alwaus ok with things being handled internally but still the police along with congress are the 2 bodies that investigate themselves and many do have issues with that.

    As to the DOJ and investigations. An investigation is just that. I dont care until I see results then I judge but I do pay attention. Some are not without merit. The Seattle PD agreed to their reforms where 1 in 5 use of force incidents were deemed excessive. The Oakland PD has been under court supervision to fix and root out corruption since 2001. Does it take 12 years to unscrew a police department? The east Haven PD agreeing in a letter to the DOJ to sweeping reforms after 4 officers were arrested by the feds and the chief resigning. Does it mean all are bad if 4 are arrested? NO, but what would a reasonable average person think after hearing about that? The NOPD during Hurricane Katrine and all the officers who went bad there. 5 in prison and many more tossing their careers away. It casts a negative light on the whole department like it or not. These are examples of what I mean.

    As far as the ACLU, they are what they are but they do serve a purpose. 2 years ago there was a drugde report headline where the Pennsylvania State police and many other Law enforcement agencies agreed to stop using the disorderly statute to cite people who cussed in public. 1 woman was cited as she cursed at her overflowing toilet in her house. Her neighbor, an off duty called the law. Another guy gave a motorist the finger and when a cop said to not do that, he got the same gesture. At trial the DA tried to claim it was over him blocking a lane, the judge stated it was retribution as the citation came out after the cop was given the bird. Those were 2 I found but where does the mind set come from by police that they can use whatever law they feel like to stop people from exercising their rights? Its a valid discussion. In this case it was the police community that stepped back.

    As to the issue of politics, it is in ever job and I hate it. I saw in in the military as it was a non stop kiss ass fest where the rank and file soldier was always walked on. It all about PR and it even exisit in police work. People will always bitch no matter what because it is easy. Most just want simple respect and not have the fact you have police powers go to your head thinking you are somehow better than them. In my case and the people I know thats the truth. I get you have a job and its not a Mr. Popularity but there is a right way to do it. Do it wrong and you as well as your colleagues are going to get lumped together in A bad way.

    Lastly, I never have had a police officer exhibit anything other than courtesy to me and have never seen or heard of anyone being mistreated. I have stated before civilized societies need law and order without it we are nothing but a 3rd world crap hole.

  • t.

    Fair enough. But the common, simple respect you speak of? I say the same. But unfortunately, the world we inhabit is more and more occupied by people who care about nothing but themselves. The “only my rights matter” crowd. This site is dominated by that thinking. Its why I have a job. If people respected each other, I’d be out of work tomorrow. But when I read the stuff around here….I am assured of job security.

  • t.

    K9dude: I just saw your comment. I was speaking of deployed military. State side military (no offense) is just a another, although different type of job, and that’s not at all what I’m talking about. Sorry if I wasn’t clear.

  • john

    i love and appreciate the military it is the fucking cops i would like to dispose of. the pigs think they are better off because of that cheap ass badge, they get off on the notion they can not do any wrong. psosgt,t, and all the other pig fucks get a real job and stop stealing tax dollars.
