Now let's follow this cop

when he is arresting someone. Let's see how he treats a suspect.
There are no good cops because the supposed good ones do nothing to stop the bad ones. They look the other way. Silence is consent.

This thread was a "crossover hit" as they say in the biz.

Dog went into his car because he figured that the cop, not wanting blood and fur splattered all over his cruiser, would not shoot him in there.

You are what is known

as a contrarian or devil's advocate.

Since most people on this site post videos of cops being bad you decide to do the opposite. Its funny because it stirs things up and you do it quite well and harmlessly. Kudos.

Here's another one~

Pinellas deputy praised for restraint during confrontation

PALM HARBOR – A Pinellas sheriff’s deputy avoided shooting an armed and suicidal 76-year-old man during a standoff Christmas Eve morning, even as the distraught man pointed a rifle at him, authorities said Thursday.

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri applauded the deputy for his restraint and sensitivity in the incident.

While I applaud the officer's restraint this should be the norm rather than the noted exception.

Sic semper tyrannissss ...oh wait

a god cop? that's odd... i mean that's awesome, give that pig...opps sorry, i mean give that man a doughnut.

not all cops are bad. as the saying goes it's the 95% of bad cops the gives the good cops a bad name. something like that. now i don't think it's quite that high but it's damn sure more than 50/50. not a very nobble profession unless you're a hated serpico type cop.

i'll give props to a cop and a temporary liberty pass if he's an active oath keeper or a member of leap and maybe goa and things along those lines.

The VAST Majority

The Vast Majority of cops are good cops, just like the vast majority of people are good people. I've never actually had an adverse interaction with a cop, even when I was under arrest - they've invariably been polite and professional. The one or two bad cops you hear about on the news from time to time are one or two out of literally millions!

Freedom is my Worship Word!

I Did Not Believe Either Until It Happened To Me.

No one does, we believe it to be an aberration, not a growing trend. I always cooperated and supported the police...that is, until an incident happened to me. Here's my story posted here at the DP a few years ago.

My front gate is now locked all the times, not only to keep out bad guys but to keep out the cops.

Belle, your personal story,

Belle, your personal story, no matter how heartwrending or graphic, has absolutely no statistical value. What the above commenter said is not in any way contradicted by your story, and is either true or false on its own merits. I disagree with him/her that most cops are good, but to draw conclusions about millions of people from one experience is not a rational way of thinking. I am not saying you should change your way of thinking, I have nothing against irrationality per se. But in the context of a rational discussion it has no sway.

Are we not but the are but the sum total of our experiences?

For what it's worth, I posted my original reply with the link out of LOVE and concern so that others might read it and be better prepared than I. If it came off as preachy, I apologize, that was not my intent.

IMO it is irrational to just TRUST that people, especially those in power,have your best interest's at heart...can we agree on that? So, I am skeptical first and everyone must now earn my trust, this applies to the police double in spades because they always have guns and are in the position of power over me and life or death. All I am really advocating is this: to not be naïve as I once was and do not assume that they have your best interests at heart. And I have provided a striking personal experience as evidence.

I don't hate cops (but I do not respect them for taking compensation for enforcing an ever growing list of unconstitutional laws upon their fellow citizens as I have stated.) I do nothing to hinder them, nor do I assist them and I certainly no longer trust them as I once did. Should I after that encounter and the experiences my family members (ex cops) have since shared with me? Or do you recommend that I just ignore this evidence and go blithely on in the future thinking that those instances were all just aberrations?

It would appear that that is what you are advocating and I think THAT kind of thinking is irrational.

No, we're not just the sum

No, we're not just the sum total of our experiences. I think my comments are clear further clarification would be wasted.

got a turd caught crosswise

got a turd caught crosswise or something bill? Give Belle a break.

Wasted? Really?

I well, sir, I have responded to your judgmental comments with respect, refrained from name calling or judging you and stated my argument quite clearly. Sadly it would appear that you are incapable of responding in kind or countenancing a differing opinion.

Peace Out

Oh, cut it out.

Great video, but serious guys, come on with these comments, its more than I can take. Every day of the week is "cops are evil scum," never any benefit of the doubt, reserving judgment, waiting for all the facts, never thinking of them as humans. All of a sudden one likes a dog, he's "one of the only good ones."

What, never heard of a scum bag who loves dogs? What sentimental gush, bunch of school girls. I take it back, if you were actually school girls or old women, no problem, nothing wrong with sentimental gush. But normally you have ropes out ready to lynch any cop who sneezes.

God forbid fascism comes in the form of a dog lover (again). lol... you guys kill me. Be adults.

BILL3, you obviously never had this happen to you:

Although I just posted this (my personal story) for someone else on this thread, I would like to bring it to your attention too, as I hope you will consider reading it. It only takes one incident like this to make one much more circumspect about trusting that cops are "here to help you".

Peace, Belle

I don't trust cops. I just

I don't trust cops. I just said they're human, disagree? The profession probably attracts a larger proportion of aggressive bullies and -holes than say landscape painting, but there's plenty of good, normal, simple decent people in every police department. They might not be courageous, they might not be politically awake, but neither is the guy who cuts your turkey at the deli. And many are intelligent and share our views. You're always going to see headlines of cops screwing up because the profession gets media attention and cops interact violently with people as part of their job. The abuse may be systemic and may require action, but that doesn't mean we are right to characterize every cop has bad in his motivations or treat them as less than humans.

I understand your point,

I understand your point, BILL, and I respectfully disagree. IMO today most of the good cops have left because they did not like the direction that law enforcement has taken. I know many personally. In my family my uncle was chief of Police for the City of San Diego for many years, he retired out. And the city has not been the same since. since that time, two of my cousins (his son and daughter-in-law) quit the force after 15 years, due to the corruption, so I have their influence, and that of other ex-cops that I know, swaying my opinion, in addition to my personal experience to which I provided you with the link to my story (did you read it?).

The attitude and aggressiveness of cops does vary from county to county as the Sheriff truly dictates policy in his county. Our county has a horrible sheriff, a real Fed animal, so it is bad here. Other counties, with constitutional sheriffs (members of the CSPOA of which I am an affiliate member) have it much better than we do. In fact when I discussed our problems here, and who our Sheriff is ("Ruby Ridge" Gore)with Richard Mack he counseled me personally to "move out of the county".

So, at this point in my life, I question the humanity and morality of virtually all police officers today because they continue to enjoy compensation to enforce an ever increasing number of unconstitutional laws that are oppressive and destructive of Liberty, they very thing they took an oath to protect. TPTB cannot oppress and subjugate us without them. They are the fist of power and this is the genesis of the hatred and disdain you see, and are objecting to, that is so prevalent here at the DP.

Sounds like you've

Sounds like you've extrapolated your experience of a few counties and a few anecdotes to pass judgment collectively on a few million people. And then endorse an equally unfounded passing of judgment of someone you know nothing about other than he helped a dog. Both seem not very thoughtful. Cops are bad but that's because people are bad. Cops carry out the dictates of the politicians that were sent to power in their jurisdictions. The people get the government they deserve. Cops, like soldiers, may attract more aggressive types, but their authority comes from the public. Silly to condemn the cops, or even the government, without condemning the people, including ourselves, who tolerate it.

Bill, I normally agree with you but,

What you consider a "cop sneezing," I consider a cop severely beating an unarmed citizen to death.

When all you see are articles about cops abusing their power, it's refreshing to see one acting like a real human being, not some supercop with a chip on his shoulder.

I understand not all cops are bad and that the MSM is not our friend, but it's obvious that many cops, who should be held to a higher standard than everyone else, are abusing their power. And maybe I'm just making assumptions at this point, but with the MSM being our enemy and the police being part of the corrupt power structure, I'd say they're somewhat allies - in other words, any time I see a story that I consider not to be for the benefit of the MSM agenda (bad cops) I usually don't question it, as it's only a negative for them and positive for us.

Hey awl, good to see you

Hey awl, good to see you around.

I only made 2 points:
1) Not all cops are bad, but it seems that a lot of people think that way and don't realize its unjust to dehumanize them all.
2) Liking dogs or even loving dogs doesn't mean a person is any better than the next guy. So you have credulous sentimentality coupled with mindless intolerance, among some people.
Bad combination.

Which point did you disagree with?

:)

Thanks for that.

Wow! The dog lives!

One of the last few good cops out there. Finally not a depressing video!

That's a Lab for ya...

With the gray muzzle, the dog is at least 5 or 6 years old...seems very sweet! ..and just came to say "thanks!". Nice to see this video of a dog-lover cop rather that what I was expecting...Thanks for this, BT...it made me smile~!!

We need to support these good

We need to support these good cops as much as we can and bridge the gap between cops and the community to try to counter the power structure paradigm of 'Us vs Them'. Not all cops are pigs.

Lol I called the Utah County Sherriff the other day to ask about shooting my new hunting bow in my yard and he basically said,

"Well, technically its illegal by the city but I have my own opinions on all that. I will say that Yes, its against the law but Im not going to drive out and bust you for it so lets just leave it at that..."

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

and later

The officer was suspended without pay for not meeting quota of tickets, because he was too busy being what an officer should really be, a public servant. Thank you officer.
