Car comes back with a missing antenna, dock them that day’s pay. Repeat till they get it.April 9, 2014 at 12:32 AM #772659ucodegenParticipant
[quote=spdrun]Car comes back with a missing antenna, dock them that day’s pay. Repeat till they get it.[/quote]The Union will squawk. Put them on desk duty. Most patrol officers HATE desk duty. First time, verbal warning, off record. Second time it goes on their record. Third time, potential tampering with evidence charge – because that is what it is (tampering with evidence is almost a career ender).April 10, 2014 at 10:22 PM #772745

Totally unconscionable and unacceptable. Certainly looks like a case of police brutality.
The other story about the LA Sheriffs shooting the man running out of the apartment is a very tragic accident, but it is not police brutality. If there was some way to prevent these types of accidents, I’m sure the cops would love to hear it, but saying that they should never use their guns is not a reasonable suggestion. They have to make life-or-death decisions in fractions of a second in some of the most extreme high-stress, unknown, uncontroled environments.April 12, 2014 at 7:25 PM #772824

I wouldn’t be so quick to make that judgement, and here’s why:
1. MSM is clearly biased in favor of the police given some of the key words in the story.
Police “mistakenly”….for example. They already found them not guilty of any wrong doing in essence.
2. It seems the account is provided by the police, and not witnesses (assuming there were any).
The police have been known to lie…
And one witness states they are moving because they fear the police based on previous incidents in the area.
I mean, we are talking about LASD.August 21, 2014 at 3:35 PM #777530FlyerInHiGuest
On the antenna thing, I don’t see why they even need antennas…. maybe for real time monitoring.
But the real need is not for real time monitoring. Investigators need to access the data to determine the chain of events after the fact.
For transparency, all police cars should be equipped with video and audio recording equipment. The data would be uploaded to an independent data repository outside the direct control of the police agency, maybe something run by a consortium of agencies.
Technology helps provide transparency. We should use it.August 21, 2014 at 3:39 PM #777529FlyerInHiGuest
Yep, it’s not a culture of cover up… just one or two bad apples.
Here’s information on a cover up in NYC about a Japanese student that was run over and killed by the NYPD.August 22, 2014 at 1:16 PM #777544FlyerInHiGuest
I just re-read more carefully the article about the Japanese student who was killed by cop.
The cop lied about having his flashing lights on. He lied about responding to a 911 call.
The level of cover up is incredible, from the officer to his partner, to leadership of the department, all the people who handled the information, even to the video editor. Pretty amazing.
The level of petty power and hubris is just astounding.August 22, 2014 at 1:58 PM #777546spdrunParticipant
If this is true, the cop should spend some quality time in prison for evidence tampering and reckless driving resulting in death. As should any of his superiors who covered for him…

Just a clip to show the type of people cops have to deal with on a regular basis. Any wonder why some of them might seem a bit too quick to pull the trigger?
I honestly have no idea how cops manage to do their jobs as well as they do. While some do get carried away without justification, I think that many incidents are so stressful that they don’t see any other way to handle things but to get physical…even to the point of shooting someone.
