    the likely answer is, "what the eff did he just say to me? i'm a cop damnit, and he will do what i say or i'll beat his ass."

    this is how cops operate. they lie, they break laws, they cover for each other.

    Almost half of all Americans vote against what is best for themselves and best for America. We call them, Republicans.

    •  The "cover for each other" part is the most (6+ / 0-)

      important and serious issue that needs to be addressed.

      Of course the vast majority of cops do their best to uphold the law they were sworn to protect. But, as someone else in this comment section mentioned, the real problem is the cops who don't or can't say anything or snitch when they do see something go wrong. There needs to be greater incentive for cops to report (or in this case immediately detain and arrest) rogue or non-law-abiding cops.
