First....yes. Not all cops are bad. some help people

But make a thread celebrating cops if you like but so many stories come out about Cops abusing their authority it just deserves its own thread

And yes, these Cops dont represent ALL of Law Enforcement, and good ones are out there. Plenty of Cops help people and do good things. But adults shouldnt get patted on the back for doing the job they signed up for.

Being a Cop is a difficult job, Im sure. But having a difficult job doesnt give someone the right to use that job to harm people

Baltimore public defenders say body camera video shows faked evidence

Baltimore police body camera videos show "multiple officers working together to manufacture evidence," according to the Baltimore City Office of the Public Defender, the second such instance of alleged misconduct caught on tape in recent weeks.
The videos show an officer finding drugs that another officer had allegedly placed there moments before, said Debbie Katz Levi, head of the city public defender's Special Litigation Section.
The case was dismissed for "suspected police misconduct," Levi said.
CNN has not independently obtained the videos. The public defender's office said it was not releasing the videos because it has not obtained permission from one of the co-defendants on tape, who has a separate private attorney.
The Baltimore City State's Attorney's office said it "had questions" about the officers' body camera videos and asked to postpone cases involving two officers amid an internal investigation, according to spokeswoman Melba Saunders.
"The Baltimore City States Attorney's Office referred two officers to Internal Affairs as we had questions concerning their Body Worn Camera videos," Saunders said in a statement. "Before we blanketly characterize their behavior as deceptive and or a credibility issue, we referred the matter to the Internal Affairs Division of the Baltimore Police Department."
T.J. Smith, a spokesman for Baltimore Police Department, said no officers were suspended but that two officers involved in that arrest were referred to the department's Internal Affairs Division. Authorities have not identified either officer.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis issued a memo on Tuesday with a stern warning not to "attempt to recreate the recovery of evidence after re-activating your body worn camera."
The latest video comes not long after body camera footage was released that appeared to show a Baltimore police officer planting drugs at the scene of an arrest in January.
Earlier video led to dismissed cases




Video shows cop plant evidence, public defender says 01:11
That video, released by the Office of the Public Defender, appears to show an officer placing a plastic bag into a food can and then hiding it under debris. The officer leaves the scene only to return shortly after, and appears to stumble upon that plastic bag of drugs in the can.
One officer in that video has been suspended, and two others were placed on administrative duty amid an investigation, officials said. Marilyn Mosby, the State's Attorney for Baltimore City, said 34 cases featuring these officers will be dismissed and another 77 are under review.
"Where these officers are material and necessary witnesses, we are dismissing those cases, which rely exclusively on the credibility of these officers," she said. The officers involved in that case have made no public comment.
Mosby also said that "an additional video raised concern," though it was not clear if that referred to this latest body camera video.
Baltimore Police began the rollout of the body camera program in May 2016.


Levi said the second body camera video dates to a drug arrest on November 29, 2016. The incident began when a man got into his girlfriend's car with what Baltimore police officers believed was a bag of drugs, so they stopped and searched the car and the two individuals, Levi said.
One officer searched the car and can be heard on his body camera audio expressing his frustration that they came up with nothing and that there'd be negative consequences if they didn't recover drugs and make an arrest, according to Levi.
The officers turned their body cameras off and then back on at staggered times, Levi said. She said that one officer told another, "No, you weren't supposed to turn yours on."
Levi said when the videos turn back on, one officer is seen squatting by the driver's seat area. "The group of officers then wait approximately 30 seconds. Shortly thereafter, another officer asks if the area by that compartment has been searched," she said.
"Nobody responds, and the officer reaches in and locates a bag that appears to contain drugs right by where the prior officer was, and where the car had been thoroughly searched about a half an hour prior with absolutely no results."
Seven officers were present during the interaction, but only two are said to have been referred to internal affairs by the state attorney's office, Levi said.
"We continue to call for full disclosure and swift action from the State's Attorney's office to ensure justice and fairness for the citizens of Baltimore," Levi said.

this is exactly my fucking point

I wasnt comparing numbers

I never said the majority, or any type of fractional measurement

the fact is SOME Cops do bad shit

thats not even debatable

how many doesnt matter if even one does something that ruins the trust the community has in the police



I knew someone was going to go that route and say what you said which is why at the beginning I said

First....yes. Not all cops are bad

Im pretty sure saying Not all Cops are bad means the majority are not bad

but some are

and thats what this is about

Well when you say, "good ones are out there", sounds as if you are saying that as if you look hard you can find them sort of thing. Anyway that's it from me in this thread ha I'll sit back and watch. Enjoy

as long as you recognize its 'sounds as if'

thats an interpretation and not even close to what I meant

I have family in Law Enforcement and theyre good people

but Ive never said most or all

that was your reaction, not my intention


I could say your reaction meant that no one should overview cops and let them do whatever they want and break laws

but I dont believe you meant that



but fine, Ill say it




ATTENTION EVERYONE! Not all cops are bad

the majority are good people




however there are some who are not good people and this thread is dedicated to the MINORITY of Cops who do bad things




better @Walter Sobchak ?

The question in the thread makes everything a little to black and white.

Do I trust cops every sinlge time? As is have I ever not trusted the police?

I have seen questionable shit from police officers just as I have seen questionable shit from city councilors, nurses, pharmacists and many other professionals.
