I totally agree.. actions should have consequences. Shouldn't that apply the other way too? Since the police are given the right to use deadly force, shouldn't they be held to a high standard when they abuse that right? Should the police be obeyed because of respect, or fear? There's only one right answer, and I haven't heard it much on here. Lots of RAH RAH kill the bad guys.. but not a lot of protect and serve. If the bad guys don't think they're going to get a fair shake what do you think they're going to do.. come peacefully or take their chances? The 'flushing turd' mentality only gets you so far, then you have to start watching your back. There's a reason why there are (or used to be) so many 'good faith' missions.. cops going to schools to talk to kids.. sponsoring all kinds of community activities.. when they cops stop being the 'good guys' to the populace and are just jack-booted thugs.. what kind of society does that give you?
