I have admitted my own bias against police. I am not militant in believing that ALL police officers are bad but I am very much a believer that people do bad things and that some of those people are police. Call it a normal suspicion on my part to believe that police officers can be and sometimes are bullies. Police can and do sometimes abuse the authority they have and when that happens they should be called out and held responsible.
Since the death of Michael Brown at the hands of a police officer the media, so-called community leaders and even elected politicians have been banging the drum loudly about "police brutality" in America. I am good with that conversations and hope that it goes to a helpful place that will have meaningful improvements.
Problem is I don't actually think that will happen and I believe the biggest reason is the well has been and continues to be poisoned by many of those beating the police brutality drum. One case in point is an article written by Snejana Farberov for Mail online (see link at the bottom).
The article details an encounter by several young men in Florida and two police officers. It is reported to be from a video uploaded in 2013. The video is taken by the passengers of the vehicle. I won't go over the entire story as I suggest that the story should be read and the video watched. Mr. Farberov clearly has an agenda that he wants to promote otherwise there is no point in lying.
Finally, I can't defend the officer who told the occupants, "I'll put a round in your a** so quick". He was wrong but . . . what precipitated all of this? More importantly let me clarify, he was wrong because I believe you don't threaten, you do otherwise you keep your mouth shut.
P.S. . . . to my five children . . . IF you ever think you will talk to an adult in such a disrespectful manner as the occupants of the vehicle above. You better reconsider that quick. Bite your tongue until blood comes out of your mouth because if I find out . . . whew . . . you will be happy to see the police and not me. Just say'n . . '-}.
