    Im sorry, you can't have fair oversight without every party having a voice. Sounds like what you want is a lynch mob.
  2. Rob, what aspects of the oversight being conducted by the actual people the police work for, are supposed to protect, and are paid by, make it seem like a lynch mob to you?

    What you have proposed sounds like what we already have. Police being policed by themselves, and their closest allies. It offers little to no check and balance to their authority.

    Let me take a wild guess here: Buffalo Bills fan? :D
    OK, now you're just making up words because you know most of us don't know better.

    I don't think the question is "why should we respect cops like this guy?" but rather, Why is there a growing trend for disrespect towards all cops, due to the small percentage of incidents overall, that the main stream media feels needs to be reported on as headline news?

    You can't argue that media tends to push the negative of pretty much everything they report on at a much larger scale, then reporting on the positive. And you can't question that the media reports are heavily weighted towards a specific agenda that they seem to be pushing (white person kills black person is always in the headline, front and center. Yet when it's the other way around, there seems to be for the most part, race ever mentioned). Very biased reporting.

    Another big issue is the liberals seem to grab onto anything that has something to do with pointing our how bad cops are, yet they are no where when it comes to supporting the police when bad things happen to them for no other reason then they are dressed in a uniform. We even see it on here. claims about how cops are evil, enforcing laws that shouldnt be there, let's vilify them for that. Then they wonder why it has become an US vs THEM state. Not a peep about the office in Shreveport LA who was shot/killed last night responding to a domestic situation...

    Hell, I know Im glad I went into technology rather then continuing in law enforcement. The vocal unappreciative minority makes it less and less worth serving the public as a law enforcement officer.

    Well, I don't disrespect cops overall but I also don't respect how good cops cover for the bad ones. With everybody turning into a mini film crew these days the shit they've been pulling for years is getting a lot more exposure......and I think that's a good thing.

    So is it all the good cops cover up for the bad cops?

    I would almost say it's more glamorous to be a sanitation engineer then a cop... probably garners more public respect at least.

    That's what we think the peaceful Muslims do for the terrorists.

    No, I'm sure the bad cops cover up for bad cops too. Who said it's glamorous being a cop? Man, I wouldn't want the job.

    Hey man, I never said they're all bad and of course, the good ones aren't the ones that piss people off.

    And BTW, didn't you say the good ones never get press coverage? Hmmmm?

    I Googled Shreveport LA police:

    He's right, aside to these 500+ articles on all the major news sites, absolutely no mention of the cop in Shreveport being shot. :rolleyes:
