  •  don't get me started on Beck (0+ / 0-)

    the man is starting to sound so utterly deranged and unprofessional that frankly I think he needs to retire

    I would also like to see the statue you are quoting there on swearing.

      Which I have seen very obviously working with sherrifs and patients in a hospital lock down unit. Even to people who are paralyzed and too weak to mount any physical action what so ever. No matter how polite and subservient, the ones in charge go out of their way to rub the prisoner's faces in  it. I mean things like telling us not to bring the prisoner fluid between meals. That isn't in writing either. But the person who mans the door lock works for the sherrifs. Can you get 1+ liters of fluid by drinking from a very small sink and faucet,  when you are sick, in pain and 20 feet from it?

      Beck is very likely a broken clock. Apparently he has the justification to do the demotion. Or it is a ruse to get out of the situation - figuring that the officer will fight it successfully when the limelight has moved on to other issues.

      •  not every cop is like that (0+ / 0-)

        most of the cops I've interacted with would like nothing more then to get rid of the power trippers but the appeal to be in law enforcement especially at the local and rural level isn't so great. Thus often they take what they can get.
