WTF?!? Why would you send a vicious dog into a shed without any situational awareness?!? My god these cops acted recklessly. Then the chief says stupid crap like "imagine what the cops were thinking..." Well chief, imagine what would happen if someone treated your grandmother that way while in her own shed. Jeebus these guys go for the violent option at every single turn because there are no consequences.

Plainly they'd have blown her away like lint if she even attempted to defend herself from their recklessly released vicious animal. These guys need a new line of work...one in which they don't have to make such crucial decisions they're clearly not up to making.

We're trying to love cops, we really are but, they need to do a much better job policing themselves. These examples of police abuse aren't helping their cause yet they aren't doing much to stop it.

Fired my ass, Campbell should have also been jailed for at least as long as Melvin spent in the lockup.

No excuse for treating people that way.

Well geez, if they fired every cop I saw driving like an ahole to get to a doughnut shop there wouldn't be any costumed crusaders left.

Most LEOs have this attitude of douchebag entitlement. The problem is chronic and not limited to a few bad apples. The few good cops are marginalized, minimized, and forced out while the prime aholes move up the scumbaggery ranks.

This is why the police need bodycam.

Being a policeman has got to be a tough job, you deal with the scum of society on a daily basis. After a while, I believe this warps your judgment. I could see me doing what this cop did, but that is no excuse and the cop needs to be charged with assault.

When the police are not held to justice, this is how you get animosity. Policing should be one of the most respected professions, but it can't be when they are viewed as being above the law.

From the article linked above.^^
“We decided together that this was an administrative issue, not a criminal issue,” Haber said.

The chief says the sergeant was reprimanded and put on "no contact with the public" until he completed classes on conflict resolution, anti-bias and how to respond to mental health calls.
Then chief stupid shit proceeds to detail what a horrible human the victim in this case is...as usual in these cases. Sorry chief there's no justification for the cop's behavior and we all know if the roles were reversed the same cops would be throwing the book at the guy, or he'd have wound up dead. As it is, the whole thing was based around some guy waving a bb gun around on his own property. This should have amounted to nothing.

If the guys interacting with the public cannot control their anger, or curb their roid addiction then they shouldn't be cops...it's as simple as that.

Twilight Of The Courts: The Elusive Search For Justice In The American Police State

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,



“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air – however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”—Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

We have entered a new regime and it’s called the American police state.

As the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in County of Los Angeles vs. Mendez makes clear, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice.

Continuing its disturbing trend of siding with police in cases of excessive use of force, a unanimous Court declared that police should not be held liable for recklessly firing 15 times into a shack where a homeless couple—Angel and Jennifer Mendez—was sleeping.

Understandably, the Mendezes were startled by the intruders, so much so that Angel was holding his BB gun, which he used to shoot rats, in defense. Despite the fact that police barged into the Mendez’s backyard shack without a search warrant and without announcing their presence and fired 15 shots at the couple, who suffered significant injuries (Angel Mendez suffered numerous gunshot wounds, one of which required the amputation of his right leg below the knee, and his wife Jennifer was shot in the back), the Court once again gave the police a “get out of jail free” card.

Unfortunately, we’ve been traveling this dangerous road for a long time now.

In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts.

Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution.

These are the hallmarks of the emerging American police state: where police officers, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, are part of an elite ruling class dependent on keeping the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens.

While the First Amendment—which gives us a voice—is being muzzled, the Fourth Amendment—which protects us from being bullied, badgered, beaten, broken and spied on by government agents—is being disemboweled.

A review of critical court rulings over the past decade or so, including some ominous ones by the U.S. Supreme Court, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order and protecting the ruling class and government agents than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution.

Police can stop, arrest and search citizens without reasonable suspicion or probable cause.

Police officers can stop cars based on “anonymous” tips or for “suspicious” behavior such as having a reclined car seat or driving too carefully.

Police officers can use lethal force in car chases without fear of lawsuits.

Police can “steal” from Americans who are innocent of any wrongdoing. Asset forfeiture laws, which have come under intense scrutiny and criticism in recent years, allow the police to seize property “suspected” of being connected to criminal activity without having to prove the owner of the property is guilty of a criminal offense.

Americans have no protection against mandatory breathalyzer tests at a police checkpoint.

Police can forcibly take your DNA, whether or not you’ve been convicted of a crime. A divided U.S. Supreme Court determined that a person arrested for a crime who is supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty must submit to forcible extraction of their DNA. In doing so, the Court opened the door for a nationwide dragnet of suspects targeted via DNA sampling.

Police can use the “fear for my life” rationale as an excuse for shooting unarmed individuals. Incredibly, a report by the Justice Department found that half of the unarmed people shot by one police department over a seven-year span were “shot because the officer saw something (like a cellphone) or some action (like a person pulling at the waist of their pants) and misidentified it as a threat.”

Police have free reign to use drug-sniffing dogs as “search warrants on leashes.”

Not only are police largely protected by qualified immunity, but police dogs are also off the hook for wrongdoing. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals actually ruled in favor of a police officer who allowed a police dog to maul a homeless man innocent of any wrongdoing.

Police can subject Americans to strip searches, no matter the “offense.” This “license to probe” is now being extended to roadside stops, as police officers throughout the country have begun performing roadside strip searches—some involving anal and vaginal probes—without any evidence of wrongdoing and without a warrant.

Police can break into homes without a warrant, even if it’s the wrong home.

Police can use knock-and-talk tactics as a means of sidestepping the Fourth Amendment. Aggressive “knock and talk” practices have become thinly veiled, warrantless exercises by which citizens are coerced and intimidated into “talking” with heavily armed police who “knock” on their doors in the middle of the night.

Police can interrogate minors without parents present.

It’s a crime to not identify yourself when a policeman asks your name. A majority of the high court agreed that refusing to answer when a policeman asks “What’s your name?” can rightfully be considered a crime under Nevada’s “stop and identify” statute.

Police can carry out no-knock raids if they believe announcing themselves would be dangerous. Legal ownership of a firearm is also enough to justify a no-knock raid by police.

The military can arrest and detain American citizens.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we are dealing with a nationwide epidemic of court-sanctioned police violence carried out against individuals posing little or no real threat, who are nevertheless subjected to such excessive police force as to end up maimed or killed.

When all is said and done, what these assorted court rulings add up to is a disconcerting government mindset that interprets the Constitution one way for the elite—government entities, the police, corporations and the wealthy—and uses a second measure altogether for the underclasses—that is, you and me.

I don't know the whole story but I don't see what the cops did wrong there.
