The police are justified to have shot Sweat under NY Penal Law 35.30. Whether you agree is immaterial, the law is crystal clear.

If you enjoy falling for media click bait like a puppet then good for you.
The truth is that the profession is full of good and bad people, like any profession. However, when you do your job right no one reports on it.

I have worked with and against police in law and there's a vast spectrum of quality. They're not all bad,and I'd say most are good and well intentioned, they just need to do a better job of policing (no pun intended) their own profession and keeping the shit heads out. Like in the military 10% take up 90% of the time; while the other 90% take up 10% of your time. (For anyone that served, you have heard this a million times)

This type of response just demonstrates you have no retort and instead resort to a condescending tone.  It's curious the the NYRPC (which you interpreted wrong) matter to you enough to write a complaint, but you fail to pay attention to the penal code.  You can't pick and choose to fight your agenda.

 

I expect more intelligent discussions in a thread on this forum, not the same crap you you on HuffPo.  There's plenty of police action to criticize, but the media giving people with half-truths of the Charleston murderer getting Burger King and a "private plane" weakens the overall argument were complete non-issues and anyone who worked in criminal law knows this.

 

The serious and pervasive issues are the 4th and 5th Amendment violations that police constantly commit (including killing animals on your property).  The killings obviously need to be dealt with and investigated.  I'm not giving police a pass, I think they should be held to a much stricter and no tolerance standard.  But when we criticize everything it retracts from the power of the actual outrage because it gets construed as "well people are offended by everything."

 

P.S. If you want to see a severe Professional Conduct rules violation, look a the Baltimore DA's statements.

haha, i'm not some old grouch,  I'm 26.  I just can't stand misinformation.  I'm not trying to get my point across and not be rude.  I think the criticism of police is necessary, but it needs to be selectively picked on actual cases where it is obvious (unarmed killings, planting weapons, etc.).  No one pays attention if we cry wolf over everything.

You'll need a sense of humor with us. Speak your mind, and abandon ego and pretense, and you'll do swimmingly here. Once in a while I learn something from this raucous rabble.

Fair enough.  I apologize if I came off as harsh.  I just get sick of the social media stuff I see, I should realize that a lot of the stuff here is in jest, rather than dead serious like I see in many media outlets.

Carl Mark Force, the head of a Baltimore-based team of law enforcement that investigated the Silk Road drug trafficking website, has pled guilty to extortion, money laundering, and obstruction of justice.

Standing before US District Judge Richard Seeborg in an orange inmate's jumpsuit, Force admitted that he stole from the Silk Road—and its founder Ross Ulbricht—even as he was investigating the website....

Acting as "Nob," the government-sanctioned account through which he interacted with Ulbricht's online persona Dread Pirate Roberts, Force took payments from Ulbricht that he didn't tell his superiors about and diverted the bitcoins into his personal accounts. Ulbricht was tried earlier this year and sentenced to life in prison in May.

He also created a second unauthorized account, "French Maid," from which he collected approximately $100,000 (£64,000) in bitcoins by offering "counter-intelligence" on law enforcement.

An attempt to extort money from DPR using a third account, "Death From Above," wasn't successful.

The government also charged Force with having multiple conflicts of interest, including a contract from 20th Century Fox to be paid up to $240,000 (£153,000) to tell his story for an upcoming movie. It isn't clear how much of that, if any, Force actually got paid. The contract was signed in 2014, and Force didn't reveal it to his superiors at the DEA.

TLDR: Pig cop steals $500k+ from the Silk road guy who was convicted and sentenced to the rest of his life in prison. Some of the evidence used against Ross Ulbricht came from this scumbag.
