A few facts:
24 million victimizations,by felons who folks want to give back their voting rights?


Compare>>>>> 2,000 people killed by police officers since 1990.>>>>>>>
To the more than 189 police officers are assaulted every day in the U.S. (62,000 assaulted yearly)and rising (that is one out of every nine), with 21,000 injured. Many are permanently disabled

>>>talk about brutality?


1. Million plus permanently paralyzed and disabled law enforcement officers who have been 'Hit In The Line of Duty'.
http://www.policevets.net/

2. For the last ten years.
Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty
http://www.nationalcops.org/
again compared to police officers killing folks.

3.
On average, a law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty every 57 hours in America.
Between 1976 and 1998, of the over 1,800 officers killed-- not including 1999 to present day 2005.
"¢16% were on disturbance calls
"¢14% were in robbery arrest situations
"¢14% were investigating suspicious persons/circumstances
"¢13% were making traffic pursuits/stops
"¢13% were attempting arrests for offenses other than robbery or burglary
"¢10% were in ambush situations
"¢7% were in an arrest situation involving drug-related matters
"¢5% were in a burglary arrest situation arrests
"¢6% were in other situations
Of the 901 assailants identified in the killing of law enforcement officers from 1989-98 --
"¢almost half had a prior conviction
"¢almost one-fifth were on probation or parole at the time.
Most law enforcement officers are killed with firearms, particularly handguns.

Violent crimes pose a serious threat to people's lives. According to a report released by the Department of Justice of the United States on Nov. 29, 2004, in 2003 residents aged 12 and above in the United States experienced about 24 million victimizations, and there occurred 1,381,259 murders, robberies and other violent crimes, averaging 475 cases per 100,000 people. Among them there were 16,503 homicides, up 1.7 percent over 2002, or nearly six cases in every 100,000 residents, and one of every 44 Americans aged above 12 was victimized.

From this link you cited in support of the original post on this topic, you selectively and conveniently edited out this part of the article:

Police violence and infringement of human rights by law enforcement agencies also constitute a serious problem. At present, 5,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States use TASER - a kind of electric shock gun, which sends out 50,000 volts of impulse voltage after hitting the target. Since 1999, more than 80 people died from TASER shootings, 60 percent of which occurred between November 2003 and November 2004.

A survey found that in the 17 years from 1985 to 2002, Los Angeles recorded more than 100 times increase in police shooting at automobile drivers, killing at least 25 and injuring more than 30 of them. Of these cases, 90 percent were due to misjudgment. (The Los Angeles Times, Feb. 29, 2004.)

On Jul. 21, 2004 Chinese citizen Zhao Yan was handcuffed and severely beaten while she was in the United States on a normal business trip. She suffered injuries in many parts of her body and serious mental harm.

The New York Times reported on Apr. 19, 2004 a comprehensive study of 328 criminal cases over the last 15 years in which the convicted person was exonerated suggests that there are thousands of innocent people in prison today. The study identified 199 murder exoneration, 73 of them in capital cases. In more than half of the cases, the defendants had been in prison for more than 10 years.


Shadow, can I ask you seriously, what's wrong with you?
Nice try Shadow but in the end it is futile to try convince people who would rather side with the criminals who poison the neighbourhoods with drugs and kill it with violence.

it is easier to point at the police as the bad guys and all the while failing to realize that law enforcement is everyone's responsibility. in the end you get the community that you deserve. If you fail to participate to make your community safe by turning a blind eye to gangs, drugs and violence then you should not be surprised when if you become a victim of crime that no one will be a witness or help you.

So in the end I guess something is wrong with me too as I want a safe community for my children to grow and succeed in and this may mean that i have to cooperate with the police. This does not mean giving the police carte blanche to do whatever they please it is not an either or issue nor doe it have to do with being liberal or conservative.

I think that her response is correct, the police do hold the power to kill if need be.

Yes, you did. You provided the link and did not try to hide anything. And yes, you do provide links to everything that you post.

Obviously, with an article as long as the one you cited, you couldn't post the whole thing. People would give it one glance, see the length and move on.

But if material is presented that is contrary to the theme of the topic and is in an article that's been cited, it should be presented, as well. In this case, it was only a few paragraphs. JMHO.

BTW, thank you for the link and the article. It contained a lot of information and is worth reading.

Thanks Shadow:

Those people who put their lives at risk to insure we have a CIVIL society need to be recognized.

One day the people who have the largest grievance against the police will establish a "virtual police force" FROM THEIR OWN COMMUNITY that stand as a buffer between the police and the members of their community. They will address some situations before the police are made aware of them via a 9/11 call.

The community knows who the drug dealers are. This VPF will patrol the corners and stop this foolishness that is destorying their community (regardless of if the CIA brought the drugs in - this is not relevant to the final leg that is actually injecting the infected needle into the vein of the community.)

Night-time predators will no longer operate with impunity against the people in the community who only wish to live in peace.

Mothers will no longer fear having their children play outside and receiving a stray bullet from a drug related shootout that takes place because the VPF will have their eyes out for illicit activities that are taking place and put a stop to it.

It is going to take AFFIRMATIVE ACTIONS buy our community to shape OUR COMMUNITIES to the way we say we want them to be. Sadly the situation in New Orleans showed how the communities there has so little infrastructure for support inside of them. The need for help cascaded upward to the next level of government and there was a systematic failure to provide a timely response. Hundreds of smaller fortresses are more difficult to battle than dependence on one large fortress which when it fails causes mass casualties.

Yes the police were #11 on the list.

Its great comparing apples to oranges. With the exception of store clerks, taxi drivers, the rest were the result of industrial accidents-collisions, falls, mech failures or electrocution. They were not the result of being attacked by some drugged out asshole or pissed-off abusive spouse.

The difference which some don't want to see is that the police put themselves in harms way to protect people who really don't give shit if the policeman/woman lives or dies. Police are tasked with finding people who don't want to go to jail for crimes they so willingly committed. police have to do their job regardless of the lack of support that they get from some persons in their communities.
I said it before, you get the policing you deserve when you fail to support the police. Yes there have been years of mistrust on both sides of the fence but you just can't give in to either the bandits or the "bad" police. You should be encouraging members in your community to join the police departments and attorney offices to make change from the inside.

Just bad mouthing does nothing but ensures that the police department in your cmmunity does not hire the best(as they will go where they are respected) and thus you will be left with the unhirables- you get what you deserve. hat

The problem is that you're the one that won't acknowledge that. They chose the profession. If it's so overwhelming they need to find a new industry in which to earn a living. They get no leeway in their professional conduct for having a stressful job.

Another one of the nonsensical conclusions you neo-cons enjoy making. Based on the posts on a messageboard you would know where people live and can accurately predict if the police would respond to a call. In addtion to being fervent believers in the stereotypes about other people of African descent, you folks also must be psychic.

If you can't personalize the response with a clumsy jab at those you disagree with, you can't say nothing a'tall.

Police Worship

    First, if we define heroism by the extent to which one puts his life on the line in the course of his work -- and apparently that's the operative definition nowadays -- then there is nothing all that heroic about policing. According to the Department of Labor, the on-the-job fatality rate for police is lower than that for gardeners, electricians, truck drivers, garbage collectors, construction workers, airline pilots, timber cutters, and commercial fisherman. In fact, fishermen have an occupational fatality rate that is fifteen times higher than that for cops, but rarely do we hear those who provide us with an endless supply of mahi-mahi described as heroes.

    An average of 66 police officers per year were killed feloniously during the 1990s, with the number falling to only 42 in 1999. As Marie De Santis, Director of the Women's Justice Center explains, the flawed presentation of cops as embattled heroes is not only inaccurate, but also dangerous: "By cultivating a hyper-inflated myth of heroes sacrificing their lives for you, police have created a shield of public veneration to defend against criticism of any misdeed. Who then can blame police for building arsenals against the citizens, for firing at first blink, for medieval codes of silence?" ...

    ...If the system is rife with inequality and injustice, then those whose job it is to uphold that system are part of the problem, just as much as they may be part of the "solution" to something like crime. By presenting police officers as inherently special and vital bulwarks against chaos, pro-cop ideologues paper over ongoing injustices in the system, [just what we have in this thread] making it more difficult to see and ultimately fix those problems. ...

I apologize. You see, I did not believe it was a question of who killed police officers. I already knew that (as does most every other human being over the age of seven) and interpreted your posting of the information to be the typical hero-worship that shallow 'groids do so well.

Since you are clearly in awe of the pedestrian information, then please enjoy your moment.

That may be a long day in waiting.
Too many of our folks want the white man to stop brutalizing us, Do right by us. This will be a long day in coming, if we do not use the laws already on the books.

WE all ready have ˜Terry VS OHIO'

The police can be held libel for wrongful arrest if they do not follow the five standards of a lawful arrest.
There are enough lawyers, and Liberal judges to make this so.
However, Folks who scream the loudest about police brutality will not stand up and be police officers.
There is not going to be a police force from our own community.
We are to busy, crying about the white man, to do any thing. We want someone else to do something.

EMP >>WE can get two million or more folks voting & spending thousands of dollars on some buck dancing young folk to get a record deal from some white own record label, but we can't get two church's of black folks to back young folks with College money to become policemen of our own community's. /American Idol/.

Just like the education of our children, we depend on others who we hate, to educate our own.

I wasn't addressing YOU in that post! RIF... so is reading comprehension and spelling.

And, please stop projecting your mental psychosis onto others. The proper spelling is p-l-e-i-o-n-o-s-i-s, and coming from someone who refers to himself as the Paladin of Dissension (it's more accurate to use the paladin of puffery), you are most definitely suffering from the Ozymandia syndrome.
From Human Rights Watch:
    From filing a complaint to pursuing legal recourse, the victim of police abuse is faced with unnecessary difficulties and, in some cases, concerted opposition from police officers and powerful police unions. The chances of local criminal prosecution are slim, and of federal civil rights prosecution, even for strong cases, remote.

    One area where the federal role in checking police abuse recently has been the Justice Department's enhanced is its new powers to conduct investigations to determine whether there is a "pattern or practice" of abuse in particular police departments and to bring lawsuits ordering reforms to end abusive practices. (In two cases, cities agreed to implement reforms to end violative practices rather than risk the Justice Department taking a case to court for injunctive action.) And although privately filed civil lawsuits are sometimes successful, they do not provide real redress; frequently, the officer in question escapes not only administrative punishment for the offense but also, because of indemnity policies, any personal financial liability.


Poor police killed by thugs. So what! Some of them are thugs themselves. Tit for tat!

Worshiping at the alter of police may make some people feel superior, but when they get thrown to the ground and get a nice foot in the neck, like too many other law-abiding, non-confrontational Black men do, that worship means nothing to the thug in a blue uniform!
Nope you would be politically correct, SS!

City ordered to rehire officer
Appeals court backs arbitrator
http://news.cincypost.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20051124/NEWS01/511240351
By Kevin Eigelbach
Post staff reporter

The Ohio Court of Appeals has ordered the city of Cincinnati to reinstate an officer dismissed in connection with the death of a man in custody.

A three-judge panel unanimously agreed Wednesday that the city had to reinstate Officer Patrick Caton, who was fired over the death of Roger Owensby Jr.

Owensby, 29, died in November 2000, after police officers scuffled with him outside a convenience store parking lot in Roselawn. The county coroner determined that Owensby died from asphyxiation while officers where trying to restrain him.

The city determined that Caton had violated six rules of police procedure. An arbitrator reduced his punishment from termination to a 40-hour suspension.

The city appealed the arbitrator's decision on July 28, 2004, and last February, the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas overturned the arbitrator's decision.

The appeals court concluded that the arbitrator had made the right decision.

"Whether we would have ruled differently than the arbitrator is immaterial," wrote Judge Gorman. "Only when the arbitrator has overstepped the bounds of the authority, conferred by the parties, may a reviewing court vacate an award."

After an eight-day trial in November 2001, a Hamilton County jury acquitted Caton of a misdemeanor assault charge filed against him in the Owensby case.

During the trial, two officers testified that they saw Caton strike Owensby while he was handcuffed, and another said Caton told him after the struggle, "We kicked his ass."

Caton was fired in February 2003, along with Officer Victor Spellen, who admitted lying under oath during the trial of Officer Robert "Blaine" Jorg, who also struggled with Owensby the night of his death.

The same judges who upheld an arbitrator's decision in the Caton case overturned the arbitrator's decision in the Spellen case last April, ruling that the city did have the right to fire Spellen. The judges said that Spellen's perjury threatened the foundations of the legal system and damaged the public's confidence in it.

Yeah keep chanting up until you really need them to save your sorry ass.

Shadow this is such typical behaviour. The ones who rely on the police the most at the ones who most whine about the police. It like dealing with a group of teenagers who think they know everything and really know shit except for obscure words that they find in the dictionary.

So in the end Shadow the piss and moaners will continue as they are, too gutless to stepup to the plate to make positive improvements in their communities (their time best spent protecting gang bangers, killers and drug dealers).

And just in case you were wondering this from the guy who started it all Sir Robert Peel


Sir Robert Peel Policing Philosophy




* The basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder.

* To recognize always that the power of the police to fulfill their functions and duties is dependent on public approval of their existence, actions, and behavior, and on their ability to secure and maintain public respect.

* To recognize always that to secure and maintain the respect and approval of the public means also the securing of willing cooperation of the public in the task of securing observance of laws.

* To recognize always that the extent to which the cooperation of the public can be secured diminishes, proportionately, the necessity of the use of physical force and compulsion for achieving police objectives.

* To seek and to preserve public favor, not by pandering to public opinion, but by constantly demonstrating absolutely impartial service to law, in complete independence of policy, and without regard to the justice or injustices of the substance of individual laws; by ready offering of individual service and friendship to all members of the public without regard to their wealth or social standing; by ready exercise of courtesy and friendly good humor; and by ready offering of individual sacrifice in protecting and preserving life.

* To use physical force only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient to obtain public cooperation to an extent necessary to secure observance of law or to restore order; and to use only the minimum degree of physical force which is necessary on any particular occasion for achieving a police objective.

* To maintain at all time a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen, in the interests of community welfare and existence.

* To recognize always the need for strict adherence to police-executive functions, and to refrain from even seeming to usurp the powers of the judiciary of avenging individuals or the state, and of authoritatively judging guilt and punishing the guilty.

* To recognize always that the test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, and not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with them.


Of course some people like to opt out of certain sections of the above. It only works if everyone does their part, it's your community that will either benefit or suffer due to the level of participation.

So what are you willing to do for a safer community- gum flappin ain't enough.

My city ranks #18 on the Top 25 Most Dangerous Cities in the Nation list. There have been almost 60 (that they know of) murders in my town this year alone.

You tell me who the police are saving.

A young girl was shot dead and her sister was wounded when gunshots penetrated the walls of their apartment last week. It was the work of gangs.

You tell me who the police are saving.

A torso was found in a dog park in the upper-class part of town last month. The arms, legs, and head belonging to the same body were found a few miles away.

You tell me who the police are saving.

The jails are overcrowded, and the county is releasing prisoners back on the street.

You tell me who the police are saving.

There is a house down the street from where I live that 8 or more registered sex offenders call home.

You tell me who the police are saving.

Six months ago we called the police because there was an intruder on our property. We had to scare him off ourselves because the pigs didn't show up until the NEXT DAY.

Now you tell me, who the police are saving.
Wow and the police were not involved in the shootings were they?

The police do not place sex offenders in halfway housing (in fact most cops would prefer to shoot sex offenders- but some liberals frown on that)

You refer to them as pigs but expect prompt service. Well just roll out the welcome mat!

Hint, honey attracts more flys than salt, perhaps its time to work with, not against the police. You probably would get prompter service.

Why the unrealistic questions from dumbasses? Yeah, I called you a dumbass, the same way you tried to call everyone not in agreement with you a "sorry ass".

As long as something pays money, there will be those willing to do the job. Keep your ignorant ass hypotheticals in Canada.
