Sheriff Mack on Police Brutality -" I'm not going to look at those YouTubes anymore"


http://youtu.be/qsJQa29CRA0

I found this so inspiring. He addresses the fact that police brutality is criminal and intolerable.

I'm glad this was short and sweet because I have a new friend I want to introduce it to, a gracious, good-hearted woman, whose friendship I've come to like. Last weekend (don't know how it came up) but I found myself talking with her about Police Brutality being on the upswing, everyday, several examples being posted on YT from across the nation...to which she bowed and shook her head and replied, "My daughter is a policeman and it's a very dangerous job. So dangerous. You have no idea."

Very awkward moment! But one I look forward to pursuing - later on.

If I'm right, I'll get to meet this patrol officer one day and get to find out what the hell they are feeding these local street cops besides "serve and protect".

Wish me luck!

....as to why the Constitutional Sheriffs and Police aren't getting more support?

They're protecting people's rights, including to keep their guns, and yet they can't raise funds or even get up votes.

What's going on?

I cannot and have not watched any police beating videos either.

Once you've lived it a couple times it is no longer cool.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

So inspiring. Sad that the worst is yet to come.

So inspiring but notice that was from last year and nothing's changed. Ever wonder, what if all that we can do is just wait for it to happen or just plug right back into The Matrix. It happened to the Romans. Not even the great Cicero could restore the republic. Maybe it's not time yet for the human spices. We'll have two dark ages, maybe more, after which the human race will emerge many times closer to what we here are the DP believe in. That's just a thought. I am very optimistic about our chances because unlike the past civilization we have that 'don't tread on me' tradition that is so deeply ingrained in our society. That together with the internet should be enough.

well, did you ask her to elaborate?

On why it's so dangerous

Yo! That's a good one...ask the mother of a female

street cop why it's dangerous. It was pretty clear to me MOM had her mind made up...it's much more dangerous to MOM than to daughter...lol.

Considering fatalities, many jobs are more dangerous

So right.

Can you imagine a police officer drawing his gun on a rogue log?

These days, I can.

It is dangerous to be a Policeman, but ignoring our yellow/orange caps that say: "DON'T TREAD ON ME" only adds to the danger.

I wish you both LUCK

Yeah I don't watch those

Yeah I don't watch those police videos any more either. It just pisses me off so much to see these criminals with badges blatantly harming people because they know they don't have to worry about being held accountable in any way.

Actually, I do, and will continue to

because as long as there's video of police brutality on YT? That's Sheriff Mack's (and ours) mark of progress...or the lack there of...
