Well this was stupid...http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/tarrant- ... s/82200692
I sure don't agree with cops doing stupid shit, but I do worry that we're putting insane pressure on people who don't make the money to justify it. We hold most of these guys to a standard that exceeds what we ask of our PRESIDENT and then people forget that cops are people too, complete with flaws. A few guys make stupid mistakes and the entire lot of them are judged by those actions. You also have guys who spend an entire career doing good work, do nothing wrong (Chris Brown) and the department often cuts ties with them leaving them out in the cold alone and/or their career and life is turned upside down.
I believe that most cops are good cops, and when the pressure outweighs the pay and they all quit... What then?
But seriously, why would you try to pepper spray a group of riders moving at speed? It's asking for a major accident.
