Must be the Jack Daniels talkin', as everyone with sense knows cops don't go to jail in the New Amerika. If anything, they get a PAID vacation, usually followed by a PROMOTION, depending on the national exposure/level of profile given the state-approved murder. As J.J. Johnson would say, "whack 'em and stack 'em."
Ironically, I was just reading a story about how a local "law" enforcement officer drove into a convenience store at 4:30 in the morning... that is, into
the convenience store, and the responding "officers" waited over an hour to begin doing any sort of blood alcohol tests. Conveniently, his BAC was right at .07, so he's only being charged with reckless driving and speeding.
I used to think that the vast majority of LEOs were good, reasonable professionals with a knowledge and respect for the law, and that there were a very few who were bad. Now, it's looking more and more like the vast majority of LEOs are criminally negligent and ignorant cowboys whose sole purpose for being in "law" enforcement is to get off on having complete power over civilians, while there is a minority who actually do well the job they are sworn to perform.
