These guys are headed for a suspension, I’ll bet.

With pay.

Most of us call that a "vacation".

Let’s hope so.

Much like any other part of a “society” - and LEOs are a society unto themselves - they know who their bad elements are.

In other words, LEOs, who have the State’s blessing to use life or death coercive force, KNOW who should and shouldn’t have a badge and a gun. And yet...there they are...on tape...abusing a helpless woman. Thank God for cameras.

To my mind, it’s too bad that woman didn’t have a gun and shoot the bastard. Spare the taxpayers the money. But then again, she’d be going to jail for defending herself, wouldn’t she? It would be her word against the partner’s word - that is, if she survived his return fire.

Too much abuse of power by public servants and arbitrary enforcement of laws has soured my respect and willingness to “obey” over the years.

If you’re a good cop, then as I said earlier, YOU have my apologies. It’s in your best interests to remove these animals from any position of authority pronto.

“hopefully these 2 get life” I think the 2nd guy should get 6 months. Apparently nothing was found in his locker or it would have been mentioned. The accuser says he did nothing but stand by and watch. And he may have been subjected to pressure by the veteran cop. Sure he should not have stood by and watched. But that is his crime, not rape or anything else.

You are a little mixed up I believe. Aiding and abetting is as serious as crime as the actual rape. He is guilty of rape also because he did nothing to stop it and it is HIS JOB to stop crime if he sees one in progress even if, especially if, the perp is another leo.

To say he is almost innocent is BS, he is worse, IMO, than the cop doing the actual rape.

“..from what i understand she had no idea what was going on until the next morning. the cameras helped her story..”

All the more reason this scumbag needs to go away - he thought he could get away with it, and it would be nothing more than a big wink/nod/nudge joke between him and his partner. Suppose the cameras weren’t there? Then it’s her word against his - and the partner is a complicit accessory to the crime because he witnessed it.

He should be tried and publicly hanged if found guilty as far as I’m concerned.

If the partner took no active physcial part, he should go to jail for life for NOT stopping it.

Public Servants that abuse their power/authority/office need to be judged VERY harshly. Jail isn’t good enough, especially when it comes to an abuse like this.

When you have the coecive power of lethal force at your beck and call, backed up by the full weight of the state - and you abuse that authority, you deserve nothing but contempt - and get it from folks like me.

And it’s even worse when the State closes ranks around their “chosen” ones.

Further erodes the Citizens’ view of authority.

at that point, the rape was still in question. since then i have revised my thinking and referred to the ‘rape’.
