[QUOTE=32green;4052097]Thats why they have [I]Courts[/I], both Criminal and Civil, that in my experience, afford citizens a more than sufficient means of refuting any bogus enforcement.
Bottom line is; SOme cops lie, some citizens lie.. in virtually all civilized societies.
I think our courts do a pretty good job of sorting these things out, they certainly dont side with the cops as a rule.
When humans, a few brief million years removed from knuckledragging through the Africa Savanna are involved, you will never achieve a perfect balance, no?[/QUOTE]
I agree that is the point of the courts as long as it doesn't become epidemic. I think that the easy access to video on the internet makes this look like a much larger problem than it is. We basically hear of EVERY incident today where even 5 years ago this was not the case. This in essence give the false impression that it is happening more often when actually it is just being reported more often.
I look down on anyone that abuses a position of responsibility. I feel that people that [B]choose that life[/B] whether as parents, teachers, policemen or judges need to hold themselves to a higher standard than the rest of the people in the country.
