    A bunch of Judge Dredds (I am the Law!) calling for vigilante justice.
    On the other hand, posters on this site go overboard quite a bit also

  • underoath

    Can we also post a story about some of the loon bats on this site calling for police officers to be shot simply because they are police officers?

    No?

    Ok.

    Do you even understand the ignorance of that statement, under? That there is unbalanced people on this site is a given, but nobody on this site can kill somebody, and then merely have to claim that they were reaching, or lunging, or any other of the countless reasons a cop will pull the trigger. So yes, it is a huge cause for concern when those unbalanced types show up on police-one with violent and vigilante type statements.

  • underoath

    Certain….how is the statement ignorant? People on this site advocate homicide of an individual because of their chosen profession. Do you not see anything wrong with that?

    As for the moron that shot the cop and got pistol whipped…he’s lucky he didn’t get shot.

    Sorry under oath, people on this site haven’t ACTIVELY chosen a job that uses violence to extort money from people for victimless offenses. Cops ACTIVELY choose to be in a duty and then call it a job. You don’t swear an oath to a job. Every cop that says they ‘are just doing their job” should be fired. Its a public service, FOR the citizens. Not against them, as the trend seems to be going.

    Every time I have done something wrong I admitted it. I have also been robbed by the so called judicial system and extorted. Not enough room to go onto it here, but I will ask this: Would it be wrong for me to wish death upon a mafia family, that uses lies and violence to steal my money?

    Because many cops do exactly that. Lie and twist words in order to get you to say the wrong thing, even if its not true. They will do ANYTHING in their power to get another bust, even if it means breaking the law in the process.

    I don’t think its strong to wish death upon violent criminals, whether they have a badge or not.

    The most important factor that extremists on both sides of the fence often fail to consider is that we’re talking about human beings. The first step towards aggressing against another human being is to first view them as not a human being at all. “POS” “animal” “moster” etc. While most people would agree that this is an accurate assessment of somebody who does something horrible to an innocent, whether the aggressor/victim is wearing a badge or interacting with somebody wearing a badge, it’s irresponsible.

    This is why I personally have always had an issue with the title “officer” regarding policemen. The use of military rank to ascribe servants of the people aside, calling even the lowliest bearer of a badge by an elevated title is, for some, the beginning of the problem. Notice how some of the posters (likely cops themselves) even go so far as capitalizing the “o” in officer?

    It’s something that we each have to decide for ourselves. I must caution though, that I feel a resolution will never be achieved; The imbalance never balanced; The “us vs them” never reconciled if we continue to view other human beings as anything other than human beings. It matters not what soil they were born on, what the color of their skin is, what it is they do for a living, or even what mistake they have made one time once upon a time.

    I thought that Uliano was suspended for failing a drug test in August 2013. Why is he working? The article can be found here if this is the same David Uliano.

    Police officers are trained to intimidate, everything, right down to their uniforms and the way they stand is meant to intimidate. From the first day of training they are taught that they are above everyone else. They do what they want and have little concern for the law. I WAS married to a NYS corrections officer who would speed and when he got pulled over would show his badge and be on his way. It sickened me. He told me what was taught to him and the views that “most” law enforcement have over the citizens of U.S.A. We are merely peons that they can bully and push around. They can lie when they arrest us and then get away with it. Period. The courts believe that because they are Under oath and that they are supposed to be telling the truth. I don’t understand why the courts believe that law enforcement are above lying. David Uliano is a liar and a drug addict. I have never had to deal with him but I know him and I know what he is all about. I am so glad you are exposing this person for who he really is.

    Amazing. That speaks to the root of the problem and the outrage here at copblock. Anyone who interacts with a cop is “lucky he didn’t get shot”

    1605…

    Its scary….have you seen some of these LEO’s shoot?

    A bystander is more likely to be shot….

  • underoath

    The guy shot another human being in the face!

    What do you deem to be an acceptable reaction?

  • 1605

    Given that cops are “trained professionals”, I expect calm and reasonable reactions. Unless, of course, cops are not “trained professionals”

    I know it’s hard, but they’re the heroes. Gotta make tough decisions and be the standard bearers. Do that.

  • underoath

    Meeting deadly force with deadly force is more than reasonable.

  • Chris Mallory

    “1st Amendment can be a bitch huh…”

    Which is why government employees should not have the same rights as honest citizens. Government employment should entail a loss of basic rights.

    Government employees should not be allowed to:
    1) Vote
    2) Bear arms
    3) Practice free speech
    4) Gather in groups of more than 3.
    5) Lie
    6) Belong to any collective bargaining organization.
    7) Use their government employment for personal enrichment of any type. Including using their “LEO” powers while working private security.

  • Chris Mallory

    “Meeting deadly force with deadly force is more than reasonable.”

    Right, so after a government employee actually has a weapon fired at him, he can respond. Just holding and pointing a weapon is NOT deadly force. Or are citizens going to be allowed to shoot armed government employees and claim self defense?

  • underoath

    The douchebag that got hit in the face had already shot one officer. I will reiterate….he’s lucky he wasn’t shot.

    The amount of ignorance around here is amazing.

  • PSOSGT

    I guess I’m not following…..the story linked is about some guy who just SHOT a cop in the face, being struck by a police officer with his pistol. Cop may have been justified to shoot the guy although I haven’t looked for more indepth story.

    lol…1605… Amazing. That speaks to the root of the problem and the outrage here at copblock. Anyone who interacts with a cop is “lucky he didn’t get shot”.. that’s funny.. so maybe we need to get rid of some laws. like castle doctrine laws.. make it unlawful for people to defend themselves or others. The dude just shot someone, the cop may have been justified to use deadly force….so yeah, he is lucky to not have been shot. Normally when someone shoots someone, they get shot at in return, not pistol whipped.

  • 1605

    Once t and common chime in, we’ll have the quad-fecta of police apologists agreeing with each other.

    Here, let me say this much. It’s wrong to shoot people. It’s even wrong to shoot cops. Violence is no solution, ever, and I mean ever. The Castle Doctrine is for cave men. You’ve never and you’ll never hear me supporting it.

    Stop assaulting people and learn how to restrain them. You can do it. I know I could. Seriously, I KNOW I could. I could do two police careers without ever even needing a gun. Leave yours in your locker. Don’t kill people.

  • underoath

    And you’ll do what when someone shoots at you? Take cover and let the bullets fly over your head? Getting shot at is not a good feeling.

    Most cops honestly believe they are judge, jury, and executioner. Little wonder that the average person is 800% more likely to be killed by the police than any terrorist”.

    On that note, did you guys hear about the cop that raped a THREE MONTH OLD INFANT *and* a ONE YEAR OLD CHILD? When you see common sense, t., and all the other shills post 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

  • PSOSGT

    It seems that the comments have simply moved from this situation to an overall BS complaint. COps on here, as usual, seem to comment on the 4 paragraph article, while everyone else wants to complain about cops hitting people.

    Dude shot a cop in the face. Look up the fleeing felon rule. Most would think that someone who just tried to kill someone falls within that rule…..hense the reason that cops make the comment that he’s lucky to be alive.

  • http://www.policemisconduct.net Glenn

    The comments of psosgt would almost be plausible…aside from the fact that cops beat and taser housewives and little old ladies as often as they do “fleeing felons”.

    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!

    The first part of the fleeing felon rule as defined on wikipeedia:

    At Common law, the Fleeing Felon Rule permits the use of force, including deadly force, against an individual who is suspected of a felony and is in clear flight.[citation needed] Force may be used by the victim, bystanders, or police officers.[citation needed] In some jurisprudence failure to use such force was a misdemeanor which could result in a fine or imprisonment.[citation needed] According to David Caplan “Immediate stopping of the fleeing felon, whether actually or presumably dangerous, was deemed absolutely necessary for the security of the people in a free state, and for maintaining the “public security.” … “[citation needed] Indeed, it has been said that the social policy of the common law in this matter was not only to threaten dangerous felons and hence deter them, but was also to induce them to “surrender peaceably” if they dared commit inherently dangerous felonies, rather than allow them to “escape trial for their crimes.” [1]

    ” Most cops honestly believe they are judge, jury, and
    executioner.”

    There was a wonderful comment on policeone about someone ‘falling down’ several times on the way to the car. Any cop who makes comments like that should be summarily fired. If we wanted vigilantism, we wouldn’t have police.

    But i have to agree with the cops. The guy shot someone. I suspect he has no problem doing it again.

    “Just holding and pointing a weapon is NOT deadly force.”

    Yes an no. If the threat is clearly real and meant to be criminal, i won’t go Buffalo Bill and let him have the first shot. But cops should remember when going to a scene that other people there may be armed. Cops have killed innocent people who only intended to defend themselves, including other cops. You should know you are under criminal threat before shooting.

    @1605

    ” The Castle Doctrine is for cave
    men. You’ve never and you’ll never hear me supporting
    it.”

    No, the Castle Doctrine is for free men who have a right to defend themselves and tbeir home and family. In my home, i will stop just long enough to make sure you aren’t family. After that, “Oh please, make it legal.”

    One wrong move….

  • SMILEY

    I went to the Police One site and I had to laugh when I read someones comment how people advocate death to cops. I have NEVER read where someone actually said go kill a cop. NEVER ! I have never read that here, and actually, what I have read here is someone “wishing or hoping” that they HEAR ABOUT a bad corrupt cop being killed. Anybody can wish something and anyone can hope for something whether they do it in their head or openly via speech or a forum with words. You have to remember that someone wishing that a bad cop is killed during their capacity as a cop is because citizens know that this is the ONLY WAY for that bad cop to be taken out of police work because the system is afraid to go after bad cops. As for my thoughts, lol, I hope and pray I hear about A BAD COP DOING YARD WORK WITH A WOOD CHIPPER IN HIS YARD AND SOME HOW GETS SUCKED INTO IT.

  • softie

    I’m a long time lurker on this page. I have zero respect for anyone who, for money, will agree to uphold any law that is passed.

    That said, I 100% believe that any of you who just saw someone shot in the face would do what they had to do to make sure the person is stopped — up to and including lethal force. For god’s sake be activist but be reasonable. Put the uniform away for a second and ask if someone you knew, and who you felt wasn’t doing anything to deserve getting shot in the face for, would you just let the man who did it saunter on? Badges don’t grant extra rights, but they also shouldn’t limit their rights as a person.

    Government is violence, and we all know how we feel about these people. But there is a time to pick your battle, and this, in my opinion, is a losing one for anyone to pick. Hopefully the evidence out there will find out what really happened and the appropriate people will be held accountable — either the bloodied victim or the copy who bloodied him. Either way, we should be concentrating on finding the truth and then piling on when we know that the evidence backs our case.

  • Lurker

    Do you realize that there is a difference between the opinions that are voiced on the internet versus the way the officers conduct themselves at work? Does it matter what they think, if they do their jobs correctly and legally?

  • Voluntarist Tippy

    Of course Lurker and Common have something to say, but we can’t heed their opinions as neither are qualified to suck the puss out of a gonorrhoea sore.

    What else should we expect out of cops? They willingly cast of bits and pieces of their humanity in their work – lying, caging innocents, planting evidence, etc. – so we cannot expect them to act like civilized persons.

    Common, you’re still invited to shampoo my crotch. Lurker can assist, also.

    Unbelievable site! By that I mean that it’s outrageous! I thought about joining up just to fuck with them and see how long it took before I was banned, but you have to be some type of LEO which they say they verify, before you are allowed to post there. They talk like a bunch of gang-bangers, which, technically, they are.

  • courtofpublicopinion

    This is an ethics test question brought to you by the court of public opinion, One fine day 56 year old emma lou decided to visit the downtown shopping district in her community. After a lovely morning of shopping she was exiting the last store thinking about lunch at her favorite deli just up the street, as she steps onto the sidewalk she is slammed into by a brawling crowd of people once she regains her balance she tries to escape the melee suddenly she is shoved into the store window and she hears someone screaming “lets see some id NOW” confused and frightened she tries to comply by shakily reaching into her bag for her wallet, oops officer friendly sees this as a threat and opens fire instantly no stop or i’ll shoot just fires off 5 shots 1 in her head 2 in her chest and 2 thru the store window 1 of which went thru the head of a 2 year old little girl in her mothers arms killing her instantly. QUESTION Was officer friendly right, and why?

  • Deputy

    Ok I’ve been a deputy for 3 years. I just want to say. Were not all bad. Yes there are bad cops out there. But please don’t judge us all but somes bad deeds. We all hope to beleave that there’s not bad cops. But the trues is these is. The ones that are good don’t like the fact. But we do what we can to try to take them in. I hate to say but my partner was takeing bribes. I found out & took him in. But wasn’t very happy about it. I thoght I knew him to be a better person. But he fulled me. So yes there’s bad cops. But there also good. So please don’t judge us all as bad.

  • Deputy

    To courtofpublicopinion, no he shouldn’t have opened fire without seeing a weapon first. If he was in my department he would be faceing the law himself. I want to make it clear to all. We are peace officers. So if any officer has anythang to say other wise. Your in the wrong line of work. I love my job. But I don’t see it as something that makes me any better then anybody. If I was to do something. (I would try to). I would want someone to let me know. I was in a new town I hadn’t work yet. I went into a parking lot, made a round, pulled out, this car comes right at me, I turn my bluelights. We get out & talk, it turned out I was on a one way street. So cops aren’t any better then anyone. We make mistakes to. I know I’m not perfict.
