It's time to treat cops like they treat us

What happens when we do? Watch.

Some states are worse than others for police and judicial tyranny. New Hampshire courts are barbecue pits, especially in Keene, New Hampshire. Vermont is obviously a rigged system. But I am left alone in these states. In the State of Connecticut cops will threaten your life if you are talking to elected officials about correcting the system.

Rhode Island cops want to arrest you for stupid crap like sleeping in public ... like at a public beach. A reason I never wanted to live in Rhode Island.

Hawaiian State and/or local Police try to sell weed out of the trunks of their cars and then want to bust their competition ...

Pennsylvania some of the worst racist White cops I have ever seen. I was told by a downtown Miami Florida police officer that I was the wrong color to hang out, I'm White. I traveled for months in Europe and the former USSR and had no negative interactions with police, something I can't seem to go a couple of days being left alone in the US pursuing legal activities, trying to enjoy liberty, in the pursuit of happiness.

I got pulled over for being a Yankee out driving at 5 AM in Mississippi. His tune quickly turned to alarm when he learned I was an insurance adjuster in the aftermath of Katrina and I had the power to turn him in or black list him if he had any sort of insurance claim.

New York City cops act like they would like to kill you if they can get you alone, or maybe will just shoot you for fun right in the street.

Not all cops are bad. The good ones seems to be the ones the bad cops target first. There seem to be more bad cops, or cops that just look the other way, than there are really good cops. We need to let the cops out there know that we have their back when they are acting for the public good, and that we will be on their backs when they are not.

Cops need the cooperation of the communities they police. The communities need cops.

The breakdown of this relationship is happening.

Lots of posters here are realizing just how selectively "the law" is applied, and just how lawless government agents have become.

It easy work.

The Police institutions need to change expectations. The public relations disaster that is Law Enforcement today was created by Law Enforcement training standards and behavioral expectations.

Law Enforcement needs to fix itself. They have plenty of conventions and communication in that world to do it too. If they were so inclined.

I used to think like you. Until my house was burglarized. Most everyone has a story like that.

Then as the veil of darkness that shrouded the Police from scrutiny was lifted by technology the sanitation of sunlight has not been kind to Law Enforcement.

"Cops need the cooperation of the communities they police. The communities need cops."

We do need some law enforcement but law enforcement with a lot of common sense. We do NOT need millions of frigging cops. What we need is for everyone to carry a firearm. Guns make for a politer society. When only criminal thugs and jack booted thugs with badges carry guns nobody has any respect for anyone else.
We need the laws we already have on the books to be enforced, lawyering made illegal with and again... Common sense.
Until our society learns to cherish life and begin to care about one another the way we used to there is no hope. Corrupt cops, more laws, ambulance chasers, unarmed citizens and rudeness will continue to be in large part the reason our nation completely collapses.

If you get pulled over, quickly find a safe spot to stop, turn your dome light on, and put both your hands on the steering wheel. Be very polite. You should be fine, I have done a total 180 on my attitude towards police.

Lived in Hawaii for going on nine years. This is the first I have heard of cops selling weed. A link or two to some convictions or arrests for this would be nice.

Lived on two different islands and counties, so think it would have garnered some attention somewhere along the line.

No great fan of cops in general, but false accusations are bogus. There is enough real stuff to nail them on.

My local Sheriff's dept is headed up by one of the best Sheriffs in the Country. I've had several interactions with him and his deputies. (no, not on the wrong side of the law!) All of them were extremely positive. However, interaction with the city police here and in other places by myself, family, and friends has been just about universally negative.

I don't know if we're just extremely lucky to have our Sheriff or if this says something about the difference between Sheriff's departments and city police departments.

Oh, I did find a Hawaii cop convicted for selling meth, and one for extorting sex during a traffic stop.

Not hard to find these stories. Hawaii is small though. I bet you can google virtually any State and find these stories.

Until police tyranny and brutality visit you and yours.

Then your eyes will be opened like mine were.

And you will discover, like I am, that it is too late for you and yours to expect any possibility of justice.

Dirty cop for sure, but nowhere in the article does is state he was selling it out of his trunk.

The Honolulu PD is indeed corrupt and very finicky about what crimes they bother to investigate if one of them finds out one of their extended family (quite common) was involved.

Again, do not care much for cops, especially the thug variety, but keep it real.

Despite what all the "cop haters" on FR say, I am known as the self appointed neighborhood watchman for our street. I am outside most of the day and have asked the local PD to STOP at STOP signs if they want to write tickets for running STOP signs.

When asked what I meant by that, I told them to wait a few days. Within a week I had videos of several different local LEO vehicles running the STOP sign at the end of our street. I told him, videos don't lie. The PD chief had no further comments.

“They ain’t all bad and most times it’s our response toward them that escalates their behavior.”

Institutional training and behavioral expectations have to change. They “escalate” very quickly and for the wrong reasons.

One of the cops in this video tried to put together an arrest “story” or justification on the fly. The other cop called him off. I am surprised this ended the way it did. Most times a crowd of drunk clowns like that get beat down. But I was happy to see them pushing back a little bit.

The breakdown of this relationship is happening.

And has been happening for decades.

I did a 30 minute radio interview show with the (then) Superintendent of the Delaware State Police. At the start of the program I owned up to the fact my kid brother was a rookie on NYPD and both my father and grandfather were also retired from NYPD. My first question to the Super was "Why are cops no longer looked at in the manner of that old Saturday Evening Post cover of the cop and kid at the counter with ice cream?"

That was 1984.

Here’s what’s happening. We hate our government. We understand our government is repressing us. The cops are the visible representatives of our government. So we hate them.

It’s a sickness. Our country is sick.

No, I actually got a bit or praise from the PD chief. I also told him the cruiser number of an LEO who went through a school zone, while the busses were loading students in the PM of an officer talking on his cell phone. Talking on a cell phone in a school zone is ILLEGAL in Texas. The local LEO has a bit of respect for me now.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

I'm the sister, daughter, and granddaughter of cops and I'm the first to find fault with a bad cop because I was taught that by my grandfather, father, and brother.

I hate bad cops, and I consider even an over sense of self to be a bad cop. Thankfully I've only encountered that once and it was dealt with.
