The problem is this criteria - "It is a legal and lawful arrest"
The survay results agree that an officer may use force if it is a lawful arrest. The problem is officers arrest people all the time for unlawful reasons all the time. I don't believe officers get enough training in what is lawful.
The website makes a false representation or misinforms the public. The statement is "To protect and serve." Who are they to protect and serve? We know that the officer does not have a duty to protect the people. So who are they serving? It is clear, they are protecting and serving the State, not the people.
My firm belief is when a fine is imposed for a crime, then the crime exists only to raise money. If it's a crime put the criminal in jail. The State does not have a right to make money. Towns and villages won't put you in jail for the so called crime. They want the money.
I have seen town and village courts go nuts when you won't pay the money and you insist on serving the time. It cost the town and village money to put you in jail.
If more people would demanded jail time and refused to pay fines the laws would change.
Go sit in a municipal court and see how many poor people are hit with fines and the court knows they can't pay.
This system is screwed up. Courts are nothing more than a money making enterprise.
OK, I am done venting.
