Police brutal force; acceptable to you? Are we giving tacit approval by doing nothing?


We Pay A Shocking Amount For Police Misconduct, And Cops Want Us Just To Accept It. We Shouldn’t! 7 point restraint - not being transported. 25-year-old Ohio woman is suing police in Dayton for cruel and unusual punishment after she was detained in an isolation cell, confined to a restraint chair and then repeatedly pepper-sprayed. Why this should concern you? Because you - the taxpayer, is the one who foots the bill for out-of-court- settlements. How many out-of-court settlements in your town or city have resulted in paying off the victims?

    You are using the "bad apple'logic. I feel that it is a systematic such as the recent case of a man dying of thirst after 7 days of no water. It wasn't a single person who did this but an entire dept of people who knew what was going on.

    excellent answer. Just as there is a tyranny of the majority - there is an opposite. ! Most wise and reasonable answer. Thank you. Gives me hope and trust in the society as a whole.
