PO-PO, when is police brutality right?

What is police brutality?

Why is it a bad thing?

Should officers be required to comply with the law?

If extra-legal violence serves a legitimate law enforcement purpose, whom should it be used against?

These questions were inspired by earlier discussions about Officer Ken Gross using non-authorized techniques (punching the head) to subdue a 19 year old: first discussion and second.

BTW, how much are you willing to pay in higher insurance premiums for the privilege of having thugs on the police force?

  • Cops should follow the law. Police brutality is against the law.

  • There are a bunch of angry FP officers who feel that they are wrongly judged for their pro-police brutality ways. I find this to be an admission of guilt and by association. Metaphorically speaking, the alocolic that gets angry with his/her family member when a member tries to send the alcoholic to detox. They will fight every step of the way, but they know they have a problem. Very similar to FP and their Unmanaged FP Police Department.

    Cops especially should follow and uphold the law and not become criminally minded. I'm sick of them looking down on society as though they are better because they wear a badge. Policeman are becoming more rude and unnecessarily aggressive. My grandmother said you catch more bees with honey. Calmness, control, common sense and good judgment-- I guess you can't buy that in today's police academy.
