You know, one day honset citizens are going to stand up to you crooked cops. They are!? Oh no! Ha-have they set a date?

More stories of police brutality here. Not surprising. Police all over the country have reacted extremely poorly to being filmed. Filming police is completely legal and yet not only have police arrested people for this "crime" some district attorneys have tried to make the arrests stick. The problem police have is that they have always had all the power. What they say goes. Police are allowed to film you to verify their story, and if it turns out they beat up some innocent guy, well that tape just goes missing. So having other people tape them means for the first time they will be held accountable for their wrong doing, which is terrifying. Even the police union will have trouble protecting these guys once video is put up on the internet, although it does raise the question, why the hell is this cop still on duty. He attacks an innocent civilian breaks his nose among other injuries. The cop brings him in and arrests him for assaulting a police officer. So the cops word is enough to put the guy in prison, but now when the tape comes up proving the officer in fact attacked the man with no provocation, and then lied about it in order to put an innocent man in prison, not only has the cop not been arrested, not only has he not been fired, he hasn't even been taken off of active duty. This police officer ought to be immediately taken off duty, and should be charged with assault along with filing a false police report, false imprisonement, and any other crimes applicable. His attidute toward the end "Oh yeah, buddy. Hey, when you don't do what I ask you to do, then you're in a world of hurt. Then you're in a world of hurt. Aren't ya? Huh?" is exactly what is wrong with police officers. They live in their own little kingdom where they are kings and everyone else must obey them. And unfortunately with the power the police union even actually crooked cops are rarely disciplined, much less cops who just get out of line. There was a cop in CT not that long ago who got into a car accident while drunk and high on meth. He's on paid injury leave right now. What? Get hurt while committing multiple crimes and putting the public at risk and you get paid for it. That the way the cops have their union set up. Hopefully the spotlight on these cops will break some of this behavior, but i think in fact the public will forget too quickly for anyone to actually have to face discipline.

Don't they have cameras that post things to youtube automatically? Or at least send them to you digitally? That might help.

I'm not sure if such technology is already functional. I know i read about camera's which would live stream to the internet so you could essentially upload to youtube as everything is happening, but i don't know if they finished with development of that or not.
