    Were those officers fired? I can bet money they were not.

    They would have gone to jail if they had inappropriately touched her.

    It happened in Florida of all places. :dry: I wonder where are all those guys who try and make it look like it's only white males who are being made to be villains. They never speak up on things like this, even on a superhero website.

    The story completely ignores aggravating and mitigating circumstances that went into the sentencing.

    The 19 year old white dirtbag and a few buddies set up a drug deal in a secluded spot to rip off drug dealers. He then, when caught turned on his white buddies and helped the prosecutors get convictions on the others. There was only a single incident of robbery. It's distasteful but very often the courts want to get the older, more experienced felons off the street for a long time by getting the youngest, least experienced member to cooperate.


    The black dirtbag and his buddy went into a Pizza Hut filled with innocent employees and customers and threatened to shoot them if they did not hand over the money -- they then fled in a getaway car to a gas station with innocent people around and did the same. After a APB was put out on the getaway vehicle the police executed a "felony stop" with guns drawn ready to shoot it out with armed robbers -- only to find in the getaway car A TWO YEAR OLD AND 5 YEAR OLD! These two *****heads took two little kids on their armed robbery crime spree and getaway that could have gone horribly wrong as we often see in the news. Since they were caught red handed neither of them could turn on the other and get a lighter sentence.

    Did the black dirtbag deserve 26 years? F yeah he did. I eat at Pizza Hut and I go to gas stations and I don't want creeps who think it's ok to bring in guns and threaten people on the streets.


    Did the white dirtbag deserve more than 2 years? F yeah he did. But since he was instrumental in getting his dirtbag friends sent to jail for a long time he got lucky.
    I guess society got the more hardened felons locked up. If the black guy had turned in a gang of violent criminals to save his skin then we would have to suffer with him walking the street potentially turning to violent crime again.


    I guess for right or wrong courts think that criminals ripping off criminals in back alleys or in the woods is less heinous than criminals walking into public places and brandishing guns and threatening innocents. Too bad only 5 violent criminals are stuck in jail instead of 6. I'm pretty sure a prosecutor would offer a black dude a deal if he could get the rest of a gang sent away.


    I never met a white person who thought white violent criminals should get more lenient treatment than black violent people. My white friends want white thugs off the street just as much as any other race thugs. Just out of general self preservation and disgust of violent crime. But I don't know many people who are bigots and don't hang around the ones I've met.

    Can't link because of language but just google "Baltimore cop assaults man" and it should be the first result.

    This walking pile of garbage needs to be fired. But it will probably be the usual slap on the wrist.

    He has been suspended with pay because he's a cop and since cops can almost literally get away with murder these days, he probably will get a slap on the wrist. And I think we all know had there not been video evidence by an outsider this story would have ended with the victim being charged with assaulting that officer (which allegedly is what started this beating in the first place, when he supposedly hit the officer back in June).

    So the cop has resigned. He'll likely lay low for a second and then get hired as a cop somewhere else.

    And it looks like the cop and the guy he beat had encountered each other once before.

    So a cop can be arrested and jailed for the following crimes:

    - Trafficking (Humans, drugs, weapons)
    - Corruption
    - Murder/attempted murder of their spouse or child
    - Child pornography

    And yet they get nothing for shooting a black person, innocent or not.

    There is something wrong with that.

    You can make all the rationalizations you want but... These types of stories seem to pop up more and more and some of us just feel there's consequences to having a culture where so many feel that ANY type of criticism of how law enforcement conducts themselves is equal to "hating cops" and "loving lawlessness".

    Police are defending their decision to deploy a stun gun on a “smiling” 87-year-old woman in Georgia.
