    Video clears Texas man of assaulting cop—did police commit perjury?
    "Without the video I would be in prison. There is no doubt about that."

    The short answer. Hell yes they did. And they are getting away with it (so far). The sheriff literally has his deputies on camera violating a man's civil rights and using excessive force but is siding with his deputies.

    And you would probably get a good bit of police brutality too.

    Fortunately as the public and more importantly, judges become aware of just how intrusive and indiscriminate these things are they have been getting more and more restrictions on them. The Feds already (at least on paper) are required to get a warrant for their use and many cities and a few states are now requiring warrants and openly stating the intent to use stingray-type devices by the authorities.

    Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News

    [​IMG]

    I may not always agree with conservative viewpoints but suppressing any factual information or anything that can help challenge one's pre-conceived notions is never a good thing.

    It's crazy how police don't want to wear the body cams. With all the things that people are catching, I'd want one just to make sure I'm kept in line. It seems to be more dirty people in law enforcement than there is clean.

    Body cams are slowly becoming the norm which is a good thing. We do need to remember the majority of cops out there are good people doing an insanely hard job. The media attention when they do crap like this, of course, makes it seem as if all cops are crooked which is not the case. Cop does his job and arrest a bad guy with the least possible amount of force does not generate clicks but it happens thousands of times every day.

    I agree the person did deserve his ass being kicked but when you put on the badge you don't get to decide what justice is, you enforce the law as is required and beating down a surrendering man (regardless of how crappy a person they are) is not the way to go about doing their job. It doesn't instill hope into those in the community who are already looking for any reason to think the cops are bad people.

    These cops will sadly likely go unpunished and continue to do things that anyone else would get arrested for.

    is it my imagination or are sex predators more ambitious than the average person? it always seems like it's some judge or politician getting caught in these compromising positions. must just be that their stories are more newsworthy.

    Not sure where you reside but over here in FL I see stuff in my Bookface feed al the time of creepers that they are either looking for or have caught and they ALWAYS look like what you picture in your head as a child molester. Just sketchy weirdo people. Every time I see their pics I'm always like, "of course that's a molester, look it him".

    High-Ranking Police Official Questioned in NYPD Corruption Probe Commits Suicide

    What kind of dirt did this guy know that he just went out and immediately killed himself? One only does that if they are going to be implicated and looking at a long time in prison or if they know the people they just came clean about are going to kill them anyway.

    Oh there certainly is, and I doubt the public will ever be made aware of it.
