There is a lot of corruption in the police department in Baltimore.

Several police officers in the US city of Baltimore have been accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars, selling drugs and guns, robbing homes and arresting innocent people.

A police officer who was murdered with his own gun  was set to testify in a police corruption case the next day.

Why not hold them accountable.  The riots in Baltimore was more about the corruption than Freddy Grey.  Freddy was just the straw that broke the camel's back.




There is a lot of corruption from posters on this board also.  Why not have Admin hold them accountable for true facts.  (I think, I feel, someone said and an anonymous said or told them.)     Grin

I would suggest you might be playing fast and loose with the meaning of the word corruption.

People getting their facts wrong on a message board is very different from cops planting guns on dead bodies or dealing drugs.

Are you trying to distract from the thread subject with such a dumbass response?

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, Trump won’t go to his funeral very, very soon.

Totally disagree with this new policy.

If a police officer does something illegal to someone he arrests, that officer should be charged criminally.

The new policy will just invite a lot of opportunists to make false claims in an attempt to grab some $$$.

Its often very difficult politically to do so.

But there is a civil process open for those who seek remedy. Do you disagree that officers should be held civilly liable for violating the rights of others?

Should it be criminal liability or no liability at all? And if that is how you feel then shouldn't that also apply to citizens as well? Equality before the law and all that...

I don't see that as being true for this does not make it any easier to win a judgement against the police. The only difference is who pays when juries decide officers owe damages.

Now the officers themselves are liable instead of the taxpayer. Aren't conservatives fans of personal responsibility?

Why should the police union hold the taxpayer hostage for police misconduct?

I don’t believe in civil suits for criminal offenses. For example, I thought it was a travesty for the Golddiggers to be able to sue OJ Simpson after he was found not guilty in criminal court.

If a cop is found guilty of a criminal charge, he should be punished accordingly. He should either serve prison time or be executed.

No way should this turn into senseless moneygrabs. The typical street hoodlum BLMer is already sketchy enough. Give them this opening and you’ll see arrests skyrocket, with these lowlifes holding their grubby hands out.

The only way I would agree to this is if the accused against the officer loses his case, he would be put to death. That might separate the real abuse from the fraudulent claims.

Sure. People could get their facts wrong constantly and I still would weigh it is a minor thing compared to planting guns and drugs on people.

Really?

Do you really believe the police have to be given a free pass from individual responsibility in order for a police department to even exist?

Why?



THEN why does Congress, Governor and the City Council Members need liability?  WHY do you need car and house insurance?
