quote:

The attorney who represented the family of George Floyd over his death at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer issued a statement on Monday following media reports that Los Angeles Police Department members had circulated an image of Floyd with the phrase, "You take my breath away."

Probably just an isolated incident and just a few bad apples and not indicative of a bigger systemic issue.

As someone points out in the replies, that's excessive force even if they're arresting a serial killer.

I agree that it's demoralizing, it seems like there's always more and it's always worse. I just try to tell myself that, no, it was always like this, we're just now more aware and less accepting now.

An FBI investigation would be a start.

Better would be to fire them all and start from scratch, with DOJ oversight.

It's a good way to waste millions of taxpayer dollars in attorney fees to find out. I'm sure the state of Kentucky is swimming in surplus cash in order to pursue something like this.

Scumbag legislators waste tens of millions of dollars trying to pass illegal laws that chip away at constitutional protections. Most famously with abortion, but they do it with whatever they think will get them good press.

lol gently caress thin blue line went up pre-emptively

the rest of the department was so worried that one of their own wasn't a psychotic freak like the rest of them, didn't constant virtue signal out their willingness to murder outsiders on a hair trigger, that they had no choice but to remove him just in case he wasn't politically unreliable




and then they tried to literally cancel him by going to his new job and starting a screaming match

Cops don’t care about those people either though. And you have to ask who you think politicians will stick up for: human capital or the people protecting capital?
