Yes Mark, I consider a cop that that has knowledge of another cop doing wrong and does nothing a bad cop as well. If you are referring to the LSP guys witnessing some of the alleged events in NO, many of these guys are (the last I heard) still in the middle of ongoing investigations regarding the incidents that they reported.
I joined this forum because I believe in the individuals right to own and bear arms, including the right to open carry. I apologize to you on behalf of the cops that think along the same lines as I do for what happened to you, but I refuse to sit here and debate good cop versus bad cop with you. Myself and many other cops have had problem with other cops as well, because we reported to our supervisors wrong doings of other officers. It is a very scary feeling when you are on a call and end up in a fight for your life and the officer that is supposed to respond as your backup takes their time to get there because of past problems with that officer or one of their buddies. (In most cases, these rogue cops don't last long before they are fired, but, in most cases, there are always smaller PD's that will hire them as soon as they are fired.)
When I joined this forum, I could have easily not mentioned that I am a cop and noone would have known any different. However, I wanted to let each of you know that there are officers out there that stand behind what yall are doing. Unfortunately, because of policy and procedure,I am denied my rightto open carry without having my badge clearly displayed next to my handgun. Instead, I choose to CC so that I don't let every Joe Thug know that I am a cop while out in public. When the time comes for me to part ways with Law Enforcement, I assure you I will be open carrying just like the rest of you.
