    Alright, Pop quiz, hotshot. There's a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. What do you do? What do you do?

    crit·i·cism
    /ˈkridəˌsizəm/
    Learn to pronounce
    noun
    1. 1.
      the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes.
      "he received a lot of criticism"

      Nothing perceived here

      These agents of the government are entrusted with upholding the constitution & laws of our country. To protect the citizen.

      They are & should be, held to a higher standard

      When they betray & abuse that trust & power it needs healthy discussion

      My thoughts are that when a criminal gets caught breaking the law, it’s usually not first time breaking the Law.
      It’s just the first time he got CAUGHT!

    Woodsy has the solution! It turns out that it's criticism that causes them to not do their jobs!

    I don't think that anyone is criticizing law enforcement.

    What's being criticized is the breaking of laws, by people that are sworn to uphold the law. And those that are complicit, either actively, or by omission.

    A cop that covers for their partner, in case of a crime, is complicit in the crime
    A superior officer that covers for an underling is doubly at fault.

    The Institute for Justice's weekly Short Circuit newsletter this week brings us two positive qualified immunity decisions from the Sixth Circuit, one about shooting dogs and one about guns:
    • Detroit police raid home. Oops! The owner is—unbeknownst to the officers—a licensed medical marijuana provider, who is not pleased when an officer shoots, kills two of his dogs. Owner: The dogs were calm. Officer: The dogs were aggressive. And one was unlicensed and therefore contraband. Sixth Circuit: No qualified immunity. The owner can sue the officer.
    • Sixth Circuit: Getting stinking drunk and then cleaning a gun may be "dumb," but, without more, it does not justify involuntary commitment. No qualified immunity for cops who committed a woman for doing just that. Dissent: You'd be singing a different tune if the gun owner had actually harmed herself following the text message "Good bye." The police acted reasonably.

    Tighten up or eliminate qualified immunity and I think things would be very different. Accountability always improves things.

    I think this statement accurate explains it. The scandal and crimes are so big and serious that nobody will touch it. Which incidentally illustrates the corruption.

    That's a combination of two separate issues colliding. First issue, cops shooting someone in back of head at wrong address. Second issue illegal immigration.

    There is no easy response to that as both parties are breaking the law. The government is then forced to address the third party (family) who I assume is also illegal. they would correctly have no recourse as a foreign invader has no constitutional rights.

    Did they mean to shoot him in the back of the head or did he turn away at the last second, did he have a handgun? I didn’t see in the article. As for his status he was a felon and an illegal alien so while he is not afforded all the rights in our constitution he surely does deserve to not be shot out of negligence, if indeed that was the case.

    I agree the cop should be charged with manslaughter. I also agree the family has not recourse as they have no standing.

    We all know the prosecutor isn't going to take control and charge the cop for being a murderer.

    Didn’t just pull gun. Apparently chased the kid into their own home and broke in. That’s insane. Over an inflatable snowman...

    Parents did a great job of raising a little douche. Agent was wrong, he should have just chased the kid down without the drawn weapon and then made the kid or his father repair or pay.

    Coulda, shoulda, woulda. The kid got off easy. Reprimand the agent, make him pay for whatever damage was done to the house and move on.
    You don't mess with people or their property. My doorbell was rung at 3 AM and my property vandalized. I caught the the three of them via social media. One of them puked his lunch after he realized that his father could have been preparing for his funeral instead of discussing the situation the next day.

    On the plus side, the agent got the same sentence as if an ordinary citizen did the same thing.

    Police Officer Accused Of Watching Porn, Masturbating On Duty


    Police Officer Accused Of Watching Porn, Masturbating On Duty
    Officer Hardin allegedly stepped out of his car in order to stroke himself.

    KERSHAW COUNTY SHERIFF€™S DEPARTMENT



    A former police officer in Camden, South Carolina is facing misconduct charges after allegedly watching porn and masturbating while on duty.

    Marshall Lee Hardin, II, was arrested Friday in connection with an incident last December at a local park.

    According to the arrest warrant, Hardin, 41, was seen watching porn on his personal cellphone “while rubbing his penis through his uniform pants.”

    The warrant continues:

    “After a period of time, Hardin exited his marked patrol car and pulled his penis out of his uniform pants to ‘stroke his penis two times.’

    Hardin put his penis back in his pants and went into the restroom in the public park to finish ejaculating.”

    A spokesman for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division told HuffPost he was unaware of how Hardin’s alleged actions came to the attention of the Camden Police Dept.

    The warrant states that Hardin confirmed the sordid details with a sworn written statement.

    Hardin is no longer employed by the Camden Police Dept., which has not returned phone calls about the incident.

    Read the arrest warrant:

    Arrest Warrant For Marshall Lee Hardin II

    Hardin was taken to the Kershaw County Detention Center and booked on charges of misconduct in office, malfeasance, misfeasance, or nonfeasance, according to news station WCBD.


    Jail records show he is no longer in custody.

    If convicted, Hardin faces up to 10 years in prison.

    This is a number of years old, just thought last name was funny, considering the event

    Isn’t that rather ironic considering he pulled a gun on the kid inside the kid’s own home?

    10 years?? For that?? Most murderers don't even get that kind of hard time. Sure, it was probably a bad idea and worthy of not being employed as a cop anymore, but that amount of punishment is just hard to swallow.
