To Police Chiefs, Mayors, District Attorneys, and City Councils Throughout the U.S.:

If you want your credibility back, then earn it! Here's some tips:

~ Stop denying reform is not needed within  your police force, because it's apparent to every citizen that it is needed. Your force is not "special".

~ If you say your police force is undergoing reform, then really reform it, don't play the lip service game and promote a racist and bigoted cop to a higher position when you think nobody's watching.

~ And for the sake of sanity, stop whining about the fact your police force has lost public respect and credibility, then from the other side of your mouth blame the victims instead of your lack of leadership.

What do current, retired, fired and former officers Michael Slager (South Carolina) ;  Tim Loehmann (Ohio),  Darren Wilson (Missouri),  Michael Rapiejko, (Arizona); Anthony Pantaleo (New York),  and  Gregory Kwiatkowski (New York) all have in common?  Each of these officers was involved in excessive uses of force, some resulting in million-dollar civil settlements before they became involved in a serious bodily injury or deadly force incidents. Each lived to offend again.

Recently in South Carolina, the North Charleston Police Chief, upon review of a cellphone recording obtained by a citizen, acted appropriately by firing and charging Slager with murder in the  death of Walter Scott.  However, this had not been Slager’s first misstep. We now know that, prior to Scott, Slager is alleged to have unnecessarily tasered and arrested two other black men;  Mario Givens and Julius Garnett Wilson.

Then we have the jaw-dropping, police car dashcam video of  Marana, Arizona, Officer Michael Rapiejko using his police vehicle as a battering ram against Mario Valencia.

Prior to being hired by Marana, Rapiejko had worked as an officer on the New York Police Department for approximately three years. There, Rapiejko had been the subject of a $20,000 civil suit, which the city settled. Documents reported that Rapiejko allegedly threatened to shoot, handcuffed, and then choked a man.  Rapiejko “left” the NYPD. In 2008, Rapiejko  joined the Tuscon Police Department; he “left” Tuscon  for reasons unknown.  Rapiejko has been a  Marana officer for a year and a half.

Who moves around like that?  Police officers don’t typically change departments like NBA players changing teams.

Some of  these errant officers have ended up costing taxpayers thousands—and in some cases, millions, in civil litigation. And amazingly enough,  a few of these rogue cops  continue to work as a police officers on other police departments. How does this happen?  Bad cops are sometimes allowed to resign or retire in lieu of termination and then they simply move on to another police department.

How and why would a police department knowingly hire a police officer who has demonstrated a proclivity toward aggressive behavior, potential emotional and mental instability, and a wanton disregard for organizational policy and procedure?

Amazing how some jerks on the Internet managed to turn George Carlins words into something he Didn't say, or wouldn't agree with, by slapping a title upon it, without His consent!!!  (Talking AT YOU Anthony Alegro!!!)

Not Once does George specifically his attack on the 1% as an an attack on the Rothchilds!  Yes, they are part of the 1%... even part of the 0.01%.... But it takes an Solid Antisemitic Idiot to specifically attack a group because of their religion!!!! Which George was NOT... but obviously Alegro IS!!!! ..... and far too many of the commentators below!!!

#2016BernieSanders  
QUOTE: Taken piece-by-piece, his campaign platform—a higher minimum wage, more vacation days, mandated sick pay, free public colleges... The magic behind the early Sanders surge is not so mysterious: what he says, invariably, is popular with the Democratic base at a time when many feel fatigued by promises of hope and change.

QUOTE; Mr. Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, violates most laws of American politics. He proudly calls himself a socialist, a label vilified by Republicans and avoided by most Democrats. He is not outwardly charming; he rarely glad-hands and his speeches are often mirthless. Like a modern day Jonathan Edwards, who found Eugene V. Debs rather than Jesus Christ, he thunders about the dying middle class and oligarchies eroding democracy.

QUOTE: ... he lamented the plight of a young teacher he had just met. “Obviously in our society we desperately need teachers,” Mr. Sanders said to his audience. “And her crime for wanting to get a master’s degree was that she is now $200,000 in debt and paying interest rates between 6 and 9 percent. …

QUOTE:  All of this stuff is crazy stuff.” If the country does not reform its environmental policies, he said a grim fate awaits: “more drought, more famine, more rising sea levels, more floods, more ocean acidification, more extreme weather disturbances, more disease and more human suffering.”
Berniemania is upon us. Meet 73-year-old Vermont senator.
