    :celebrate I hope he takes their ass*es to the cleaner and gets such a huge judgment that he has to foreclose on the entire police department and sell everything at auction just to pay a portion of it...:celebrate Break them all, personally and professionally until they quit this type of mistreatment and actually begin treating us with respect, and decency..

    Only punish those who promoted, condoned and took part in the unlawful behavior of that PD.

    There's no need to punish [the few?] good cops in their city.

    How many times have they been told by the courts to stop harassing law abiding citizens? Good, maybe they'll finally get it through their heads.

    then the "few good" should spend their time exposing the filth they work with and help to get rid of them--make them quit, expose them, complain against them...

    if the "good" officers do nothing--then they are not "good"...and should equally be punished.

    Amen on the "no good cops" comment, there aren't any.
    Oh, come on. The lawyer who filed the lawsuit used to be a cop. I was one for a dozen years.

    Also, I find it amazing a lawyer from GEORGIA can fly into Milwaukee and, within hours, file a suit.

    This is the best news I've had all day! It is not that hard to write a law that makes sense and doesn't violate the Constitution. It's time to smack our elected officials around and make them do their jobs.

    I hope that they are held accountable for their unlawful actions to the fullest extent of the city's pocketbook. Best of luck in the righteous fight.

    "Despite the fact that the governor and multiple other state officials have declared that open carry is not illegal, some law enforcement officers continue to deprive Wisconsin citizens of their constitutional rights by harassing them for engaging in this perfectly lawful behavior."


    I think the above quote should read "....
    declared that open carry is illegal,
    ..."

    Strike the "not". Isn't that right?


    EDIT:
    I now see that I misread the original quote.

    Mark, I find your comment about "no good cops" somewhat offensive. I have been a police officer in both the federal and local jurisdictions for almost 15 year and I can assure you that I have never unlawfully violated someone's constitutionally protected liberties.

    In fact, I would venture to say that anything coming from a coonass in LA probably doesn't really appreciate all that police officers do. In fact just the other day I beat down a little old lady crossing the street and found the first white guy I could find just to pull him over for driving in a black neighborhood.

    The point is this....just like not all doctors are good at heart, not all teachers love children, and not all sports stars are perfect examples of roll models....not all police officers are good. But this I can say...most of them are justl like you and me. They put on their pants one leg at a time and do the best they can to make money for their familes. Try and remember this next time you or your family or someone you care about needs a police officer....otherwise, call a crack head and see what response you get.

    Oh yeah, by the way...I am a police officer in TX and I amall for open carry. It doesn't bother me one bit. I am a proud member of the "strict constructionist" political party. It means that any able bodied person eligible to join the militia (according to the literal reading of the 2A) cannot have their rights to bear arms infringed upon....even if they are nuts, felons, or anthing else

    dlofton:

    Be aware that Mark is from Louisiana not Wisconsin. His comments are his and his alone. We have some active cops and ex-cops on the Wisconsin OC forum. All are valuable contributors. I personally don't like the terms "good" cop and "bad" cop. I prefer the words informed and misinformed.

    You have stated that there is a hard rule in LA....do not dial 911, ever. Being that I own land in LA over at Lake St John, LA(it is a fishing camp on the water) and have owned said land for more than 10 years, I have never heard this rule. Can you please explain?

    I actually like most Wisconsin people I have met. Being a military guy officer for 20 years before my retirement I met lots of folks from WI. Most were pretty nice. However, most LA people I have met still continue to be just like those from the evil empire that is LSU......HODDY TODDY!

    Oh...don't be fooled sir, there are some very good cops but also there are some very bad ones, too. I hate the bad ones just as much as the rest of the world does.

    "Law enforcment" is probably one of the few "professions" I know of where you can totally fail to succeed at your job and STILL get paid.


    This is clearly not true. Have you ever seen the Detriot Lions play football?
