“He is not a citizen. He is a police officer.”

Nice follow-up on one of our favorite badge-wearing thugs still on the DPD payroll. That titular quote from another officer goes to the heart of what’s wrong with the mentality of some cops — that is, when they forget they, too, are citizens with no more rights than anyone else. A lot of people say that you shouldn’t judge cops so harshly. But it’s precisely because of the position they hold they need to be held to higher standards.

    I wonder if Cpl Overall was drinking with Steve Holy at the Hurricane Grill that day? I mean why was he so polite? Couldn’t he have just put a gun to Mr. Gray and ask him his name?

    Are we allowed to say “shitcanned” on FrontBurner?

    One of the reasons I’m against the all professional military also applies to police officers.

    “The reasons some of them want to be cops or soldiers are the very reasons we shouldn’t allow them to serve.”
