    How am I disrespecting because I start my individual threads focusing on police abuse ect.? If I were violating the rules of this forum by starting my individual threads I'd agree with you.

    I was accused of doing the same thing regarding a few threads being posted as well though I didn't mean any harm. I'm not calling you out man, just finding a way to keep all these threads in one place as they are all stating to pile up.

    Good cops (seriously):

    “NYPD Officers Sue Saying They’re Being Punished For Refusing To Discriminate”

    http://thinkprogress.org/justice/201...ople-of-color/

    A second suit filed on Tuesday by one of the 12 officers, Adhyl Polanco, says his colleagues have retaliated against him since 2009, for revealing the quota system to the media and detailing widespread corruption among the city’s officers. He was called a....by one of his colleagues, and has been suspended, placed on mental watch, and put on probation.

    It's honestly a shame that these things are happening so often that they even need to get merged to reduce the clutter.

    LUPE, I appreciate what you're doing.

    Zema, I appreciate you bringing these kinds of articles to our attention. Keep it up.

    This case involving NYPD is emblematic of what's wrong with police culture. It stresses conformity within the ranks and conscientious cops who don't want to go along with the program get shunned and retaliated upon. This is why it's so hard for the public to make any headway when advocating for radical changes to police practices. I think we're at the point where a radical overhaul of police practices are critically needed. The status quo just won't do if we are ever going to see any semblance of transparency and accountability within police departments in our country. We can no longer tolerate police departments remaining insular and left to their own devices.

    Arby's apologizes after employee refuses to serve police officer: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2...icer/71580310/

    Pembroke Pines police says one of their officers was initially refused service at an Arby’s location in town on Tuesday evening when trying to order food at the restaurant’s drive-thru. The officer was in uniform and in a police vehicle, according to a police report filed on the incident.

    The drive-thru clerk, who was identified as Kenneth Davenport, 19, sounded "short" with the officer when he or she was ordering, the police report says. Police would not divulge the name of the complaining officer.

    When the officer drove to the pickup window, the store manager, Angel Mirabel, told the officer that the clerk "doesn't want to serve you because you are a police officer." Mirabel had to order Davenport to process the officer's credit card.

    The officer expressed displeasure and concern about the safety of the food to the manager. Mirabel also allegedly told the officer that the clerk "has the right to refuse to serve" you. The officer felt "uncertain" about the safety of the food and was given a refund.

    The viral claim that a black person is killed by police ‘every 28 hours’ http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...very-28-hours/

    Search the phrase “every 28 hours” on Google, Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and thousands of messages like these will come up. This is the phrase that has gone viral after police-involved killings of black males in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, N.Y.: “Every 28 hours, an unarmed black person is killed by police.” It is now being used to describe the deaths of two New York City police officers, to draw comparisons between the deaths of police and deaths of unarmed African Americans killed by police.
