    Any wonder why the public likes the police less and less each day?

    Worst part is that this crap happens all the time. Many officers seem to have no human empathy to understand the consequences of their decisions for the people they are interacting with. I've seen way too many videos of things like this to believe that these incidents are isolated. I've seen several videos where they are going through the exercise of scouring the laws to find something to charge people with just so they charge them with "something". It's ridiculous.

    Body cams are awesome, they should be requried for ALL POLICE and should NEVER be turned off when the police are on duty. The cams should upload to the cloud where the police agency can't delete the originals and can only redact info from COPIES for FOIA requests when required.

    Wow, what a couple of thunder c**ts. They don’t like body cams @OBeerWANKenobi because they can’t do all the little shady crap they like to do. Hopefully, those 2 get to be mall security.

    Here's what I don't understand, she won the coin flip and they still arrested her. Double douchebag move.

    I love how cops always act like you just beat the brains out of a baby seal. Dude, I was just speeding. Just write the damn ticket.

    "Two officers involved were forced to turn in their guns and their badges right after Roswell police learned The Investigators were on the case."
    "This traffic stop happened in early April, but Roswell didn't put officers Brown and Wilson on administrative leave before 11Alive started asking questions two months later."

    Those two quotes pretty much sum it up - they'll protect their own even when they're in the wrong.

    If you're a cop, and you know about a bad cop and don't do anything about it, you're a bad cop.

    Georgia police are horrible. Just look up "the drug whisperer", a Georgia cop who goes around arresting sober people for DUI's and getting awards for it.

    OMG!!! I just watched the video here:



    That's freaking unbelievable! Test come back negative and the response is that the test were wrong? Their defense of the arrest is that the marijuana could have already metabolized or that it was probably present but blow detection limits? Both of those would vindicate the driver as they STILL would not be operating under the influence. I've never been one to "hate" LEO but rather avoid having interactions with them. This puts that thinking in a different realm.

    But, the road was WET man! You go to prison for that crap!

    There are so much more to focus on than taking someone to jail for trivial crap.

    Yeah... measured with no speed detection equipment. Just guesstimation. Not ticket form either...we gotta run this hardened criminal in!

    This can't be right, they were actually held to a reasonable standard (being fired) for doing something wrong?

    No, no. They were fired to save face for the department after the news story broke (2 months after they were aware of the incident). I'm really not sure that qualifies as a reasonable standard. At least for me, that should have been immediately after the department was aware of the situation.

    They've been put on leave, they haven't been fired. And dollars to donuts, they will be back on the streets in no time.

    Damnit, I read it wrong. Definitely not reasonable action then.
