    this is like blaming the soldier at war for killing someone who probably shouldn't have gotten killed - yes, he may have used poor judgement but who put that man in the field in the first place?

    There are all kinds of issues to be raised here. Issues of personal responsiblity; of responsibility of fellow cops, of bosses, of the training that they've received.

    I hope you will be writing some letters - I think your point of view will be sorely needed. Please send your opinion to others beyond this website.

      I also know we have to scream at the guy so the cops can turn around and pass that back up the line. Being a cop is a shit of a job as no one loves you. That is why I try and look out for them as we do actually need a police force.

      Indeed we are now having to police congress since they have gotten way out of line. But I don't think pepper spraying John Boehner or Mitch or any of the idiots in congress is a suitable means of getting them to do the job.
