  3. tsk tsk

  4. Cop on horseback riding over a woman in Houston.

    Fuck your cops.

  5. aaaaahhhh booo hooo

    she should have been at home observing the lockdown…… but no she had to go carry a sign and protest the police and she got stepped on by a horse…. ah poor baby.

    Maybe she’ll think twice next time the opportunity comes along and make better choices.

  6. here ya go Daphne…..

  7. and here are your saintly rioters killing a man for defending his business tonight in Dallas

    Now who is more aggrieved ?

    The Woman who got accidently stepped on by a horse as your video shows…..

    or the guy that was just beat to death in Dallas by your precious little waifs……?

  8. Patrick,

    Are you able to comprehend that you can have bad cops, and bad civilians?

    You put up a tribute to the police, like this is a great revelation. Wow, you are amazing, Patrick, to bring this to our attention.

    The idiot that kneeled on the neck of a fully retained thief deserves to go to jail for a very long time.

    We give these people the power to arrest and to detain, and to carry weapons. If they abuse that they need to face the consequences.

    Of course the rioters are scum, but who gave them the opportunity – the scum bag police officers that murdered a detainee.

  9. Restrained

  10. She should have been at home observing the lockdown…… but no she had to go carry a sign and protest the police and she got stepped on by a horse…. ah poor baby

    No First Amendment rights for her then.

  11. I was thinking the same thing. Patrick’s all over the place on this one. Firstly he says you can stand outside someone’s home holding your loaded gun and its a perfectly legitimate act of free speech which cannot be restricted, but a woman holding a sign in a public place is fair game for a police attack and then adds she should have been observing the lockdown, the same lockdowns that Patrick has claimed are unconstitutional abuse of Governor’s powers.

    Yep, great consistency there from Patrick.

  12. No doubt there’ll be some excuse trotted out for this too:

    It says a lot about a country when police can be decked out like robocops and ride around on horses yet doctors & nurses can’t get facemasks.

  13. More excuses needed:

    The New York police, protecting the peace and defending the public, by driving a car into a crowd of protesters

  14. How many of you actually watched this video Tribute ?

    I chose it for a reason……. tell me what you think it is, because I don’t believe a single one of you watched it.

  15. Patrick

    What have our comments to do with the video ?

  16. watch it maybe you’d know

  17. “I chose it for a reason”

    The glaring spelling mistake in it would almost make me think you wrote it Pat.

    Are you arguing that they aren’t treated like people? What other person who kills another human being without just cause is not prosecuted? What other person who abuses people, beats them, attacks them etc… is not prosecuted?

    If police officers were treated like other people, and not granted huge, huge legal protections, then there would be no problems. The problem is that is not the case and police officers are seen as being able to kill, main and beat people, to abuse people’s rights etc… with near impunity.

    They are almost never charged, and even half the time they are charged they are acquitted, despite the evidence against them.

  18. Are you arguing that they aren’t treated like people? What other person who kills another human being without just cause is not prosecuted? What other person who abuses people, beats them, attacks them etc… is not prosecuted?

    The fact that you believe that proves A) you have no idea what you are talking about, and B) that you are incapable of rational thought in this matter.

    Says the man who is trying to deflect from the fact that a police officer killed an unarmed, restrained suspect, while 3 other police officers stood by and not only watched, but stopped people from intervening.

    I watched the video last night. What makes you think it wasn’t watched by anyone here ? There is nothing educational or new in the video. It’s a deliberate tear jerking pro-police image montage that doesn’t even pretend to address the issues Seamus mentions in his comment. Of course the police are human and they mourn and grieve when their colleagues are killed by criminals – but what does that have to do with the immediate issue at hand, which is the sense that police can behave often with unrestrained brutality and there is no proactive determination by the police hierarchy to deal with these abuses. They only act reactively when huge public pressure forces them to.

    Be honest, if the George Floyd incident had not been videod by the public and hadn’t become a national story, but his superiors knew what he had done, would they have still sacked him and charged him with murder if there was little political pressure on them to do so . Can you be confident that Justice would have been done ?

  21. I watched the video and thought that ‘I’m only human and make mistakes’ could refer to anyone, criminals included.

    Do you think the cop trampling a woman peacefully exercising her First Amendment rights did anything wrong? You’re excusing of the incident would suggest no.

    Did the cops firing non lethal rounds at a group peacefully enjoying their own property do anything wrong?

    Did the cops who drove a car into a group of protestors do anything wrong?

  22. Paul McMahon,

    No First Amendment rights for her then.

    A computer program that generated random responses to questions would make more sense than Patrick, and be more consistent.
    That’s why I can’t take Patrick seriously. His opinion changes from one moment to the next depending wheather he agrees or disagrees with the point he’s debating.

  23. According to data released last year, despite nearly 1,000 police homicides every year, since 2005 only 98 police officers (and other law enforcement officers) have been arrested in connection with fatal shootings. Only 35 of these officers have been convicted of a crime, often a lesser offense such as manslaughter or negligent homicide, rather than murder. 35 convictions, despite nearly 15,000 killings. Now obviously some of those, an overwhelming majority of those, would be justified shootings. Only 3 were convicted of murder.

    Of the 1,004 people killed by the police in 2019 760 were armed with a gun or a knife. A further 66 had some sort of weapon (though that can cover a wide variety of objects). 62 were unarmed in a car (which could be seen as some sort of weapon) at their shooting. 26 had a toy or fake weapon. That still leaves 90 who were unarmed.

    So if that is the same over the 15 year period it would be over 1,350 officer shootings of unarmed people. Now while it would be safe to say that some of the shootings of those unarmed people would be justified (such as situation where an objectively reasonable officer could conclude that their lives or the life of someone else was at risk). However that is probably balanced out by some of the other situations where the person was armed (to some degree) but where it could not be objectively concluded that the lives of officers or anyone else was a risk, such as someone armed with a non-lethal weapon (or where armed with a potentially lethal weapon but never attempted to reach for it). So 3 murder convictions in 1,350 unarmed shootings. And only 35 total convictions in those shootings. It is naive to the point of ridiculous to think that police are being held criminally accountable for their actions. If they were treated like normal people then that 3 number, and that 35 number, would be a lot higher.

  24. Our present crisis isn’t related to good cops but to bad ones, a minority but not as small a minority as we would wish.

  25. bullshit Mahons…..

    How many animals are locked up each year…. go find the number. (10.3 million)

    Than look up how many people are killed by the cops each year…. that one I already gave you the link. (1,004)

    Than out of those 1004 deaths a year how many are adjudicated as “Bad” meaning officer malfeasance….. less than 1%

    run those numbers…… and tell me we’re swamped with bad cops.

  26. I didn’t say swamped. I said bad cops are not as small a minority as we would wish.

  27. There are a lot of police who witness bad behavior by other cops and who don’t say anything about it

    Are those silent ones good cops?

  28. I saw something on social media today:
    If you have 1000 good cops and 10 bad cops
    And the 1000 good cops don’t report the 10 bad cops
    Then you have 1010 bad cops

  29. Patrick

    Tough question…

    I have never heard you speak about the blue wall of silence.

    Maybe now you can speak about it?

  30. Pretty soon Patrick will be referring to him as Officer Flynn…..
