Just pay up!

Some cops are just plain assholes on the job and at home. Just ask their former wives and kids.
I can't understand why Good Cops don't run for union office and win with all the Good Cop votes! 🤔
Nazis. Jews*. Both sides!
*homosexuals, disabled, gypsies, etc.
I cling to the fact that Hillary won the popular vote pretty commandingly. But her advisors----even with Gore's experience in the rear view mirror---failed to prepare for a shrewd Electoral College strategy, and the Republicans put Trump over by a fragile handful of votes---about 70,000 scattered across half a dozen key states.
Yeah, I thought they all got fired.
He's a 100% bog standard Republican boilerplate bullshit artist, so that scans.
Exactly. Until the Mayor the Chief and a buncha captains lieutenants and city council are fired nothing will change ever.
Melvyn Carson Bruder: Prosecutors in Dallas have said for years - any prosecutor can convict a guilty man. It takes a great prosecutor to convict an innocent man.
From the documentary The Thin Blue Line by Errol Morris
Sadly, public sector unions, particularly police unions, are too often the refuge of people who'd just rather not work.
At the root of the problem is the utter incompetence of police in America.
They frame people because they can't solve crimes. They can't solve crimes because they've alienated themselves from the people who pay them. So they have to use violence and false charges to make it look even a little like they can do their jobs.
In Minneapolis, 93% of cops don't live in Minneapolis. They even got a state law passed forbidding jurisdictions from requiring employees to live where they get paid.
During the initial outcry over the murder of George Floyd, this issue came up. A police Lieutenant high up in the union was asked why she wouldn't live in Minneapolis. She burst into tears at the thought of her "beautiful daughter" maybe having to live and go to school in my neighborhood, with my kids.
It was one of the most damning self-assessed performance reviews I've ever seen.
As our cops have become more alienated, violent and criminal, the percentage of cases they solve has plummeted. They don't know the community. They don't know whom to talk to, and people won't talk to them. They've turned themselves into a hostile foreign occupation force, and now they're mad about it when people reject their abuse.
That would require 51% Good Cops. That, and a piece of the True Cross
The NYPD has had, long before the plague, an absolutely terrible record for making any arrests for violent crime. Not convictions: Arrests.
When you've bred a situation where nobody in their right mind would talk to the press or the police, shit gets real tough.
This is some macho, back-the-blue, never admit when you're wrong, be wrong but then refuse to correct the mistake, double-down, dig in your heels, punish the victim for complaining nonsense, isn't it? The falsely imprisoned are trying to make the city look bad, is that it, and once exonerated and freed should look grateful that they got that much? If the city wants to punish people for publicly giving them a black eye, they could fire some cops.
I hear that, for his trouble, he got some anonymous but credible threats against his son. Y'know, the Black one?
They say that a good collar is one that sticks, and the shortest route to that is not, as any halfway intelligent person can work out, to work very hard to ensure that one has arrested the right person and then build a case to convict; it is rather to use one's considerable resources to ensure that the person one arrested gets convicted. Put the frame up well and it hardly matters who's standing in it.
