More and more modern police departments are getting a reputation for being little more than violent thugs with badges. After reading some of the statements posted by police officers in regard to the Michael Brown shooting it’s pretty easy to see where that reputation stems from. For example, take a look at this gem I came across on Facebook:
Even though the facts aren’t in about what exactly went down this fine officer openly states that he would have tripped up Brown just so he could beat the shit out of him. Additionally he admitted to the fact that he wouldn’t stop until his fellow officers pulled him off of Brown (or, I assume, after Brown ceased living).
Social media has given us access to a treasure trove of information including how many people working for the state really think.
