Police brutality?

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

I see the vid from the LAPD Rampart scandal. Back in 1999, Denzel played a cop loosely based on that story in Training Day. Great film.

Well, I'm just trying to point out that, from the perspectives of many people living in highly policed areas, someone claiming to have been brutalized by corrupt police officers is not disbelieved. For many, the police are just another gang. The innocent people are caught in the middle. That doesn't mean that all cops are corrupt or bad.

That was partly my perception just from the local media growing up in a rarely policed neighborhood in Dallas and I don't think the local TV and print were trying to accentuate the problem in the 70's and early 80's.

Chris Rock has a new show where goes straight into talking about the police. I absolutely agrees with everything he says.

I think one thr bjgger issues in the United Shates is that someone can be a cop with only a high school degree whereas in the EU you are required to have a university degree and in the EU police shootings are extremely rare.

Not sure if cdobe peruses OffTopic, but I heard that police in Germany receive 3 years of training? Too lazy to google. Just so obvious the training for most LEO's in America has a lot of room for improvement.
