HOW POLICE UNIONS KEEP ABUSIVE POLICE WORKING

Feeling Rebloggy 



First A 2015 Example of 

An Abuse Of Police Power
Using A Technicality As An Excuse


"He didn't do nothing wrong," one woman tells the officer. "That is a child who was jaywalking."

At one point during the struggle, the officer appears to hit the boy in the face with the baton, and the boy can be heard crying. Later, eight back-up officers arrive at the scene and can be seen tackling the boy to the ground."

~Mother Jones


Video below is not for the faint-hearted. A woman is yelling profanities trying to get the officer to lay off the kid who you can eventually hear crying in the video



"The classic template for police abuse: misbehaving cops are spared punishment by colleagues and bosses who cover for them.

There are, of course, police officers who are fired for egregious misbehavior by commanding officers who decide that a given abuse makes them unfit for a badge and gun. Yet all over the U.S., police unions help many of those cops to get their jobs back, often via secretive appeals geared to protect labor rights rather than public safety. Cops deemed unqualified by their own bosses are put back on the streets. 

[Then] their colleagues [right along with the rest of us] get the message that police all but impervious to termination."
