Are police more dangerous to the public than criminals?

  • Those who have the power to corrupt and get away with it.

    When people are in a position of power they also have the option to abuse it. I'm a witness to this very corruption. Police were called to my street for a gang fight amoung minors. A family member of mine tells me to call the police, I do. (At this point im going to call her Jenna.) Jenna goes outside on her own property and tells the minors "Go home, the police will be here shortly." Jenna notices broken pipe on property, goes to throw it in the trash (she had her hand on the lid at the curb). Two male cops have their hands ON their weapons, yelling @ Jenna to drop the weapon. Jenna complies and drops it on the floor beside her. Both cops proceed to arrest Jenna and she does not resist. One cop repeatedly kicks Jenna several times with steel toe boots below the knees while her left hand is rung by him behind her back (he continues to kick). At the same time the other cop is pulling her arm back and in the air. She screams "YOUR BREAKING MY ARM." Cop on the left puts his right leg in front of Jenna's left leg to trip her (Mind you she has not once resisted. These cops did not coordinate what they were doing.) She loses her center of balance and they all fall. First the cops knee makes contact with the floor then Jenna's chest with the full weight of both cops on top of her. They get the handcuffs on her, take her to Jail and I show up at the hearing to get the charges. The charged her with 1 count of Obstruction ($10,000) and 2 counts of Assault against a police officer ($5000 x2). So Jenna ends up with $20k against her and possibly 20 years in prison because the police officers lied in the police report saying that Jenna hit them with a pipe. There were 3 witnesses that saw the whole thing including myself that could prove that the officers were lying and that Jenna was fully Compliant. Jenna gets a lawyer and after 2 years the County drops the charges in the hopes that she does not sue them for police brutality, emotional & physical damage, as well as corrupting her good name. She served in the military for over 17 years and is an upstanding citizen. And after all she's been through she continues to be a great role model.

  • Generally speaking, yes

    Alot of the so called criminals are really not that much of a threat. They are a nusance and do harm society, but it is those with power who abuse it that are the true threat, and in capitalist countries, the police are used to uphold the laws that were made by the corporations, and do not represent the interests of the common person. I have seen numerous amounts of times how cops will assault someone, and then accuse the victim of assaulting the cop. Not only are they corrupt, and hurt people, but they try to twist the story around.

  • Cops over Criminals

    Cops aren't more dangerous to the general public. They are only dangerous to those who they feel are a threat. Cops have saved countless lives. How many live have criminals saved? If police are dangerous then are you guys saying that we need to get rid of police? This will only increase crime rates and make it so that we don't have anyone to go to when we are in trouble. It isn't fair to scapegoat the police for not being able to be everywhere and stop all criminals.

  • No common decency

    Regardless of infractions police in the United States are extremely abrasive, rude and antagonistic. They pick fights and know that if someone reacts they can kill or badly injure without any worry whatsoever of losing their job or being reprimanded. Personally every encounter I have had with police has ended up with them talking to me as if I'd just committed a horrific crime. All times have been for minor"offenses" if you could even call them that. Burned out license plate light? GET OUT OF THE FUCKING CAR NOW!!! Out of gas on the highway? Show me your hands stop moving why we're you walking on the highway? If I ever spoke to anyone like this I'd expect to get punched or at least yelled at. There is simply no hope for things to get better in this arena.

  • Any one who is in control of governing someone should not be ok .

    As people we are forced to follow what our government says and as much as they try to make it seem like the laws protect us they really don't . How many times has the government taken our money and done things that if a citizen did the same would be put in jail . Everything under the government is corrupt and mostly about money . They rob and enslave us then try to make us feel like we are safe and we needs laws in order for society to run smooth . However if that was the case wouldn't society run smooth now ? We have people who can barely afford to live , we have people of power paying their way through life . We have the same few companies in control of everything we do . We are forced to vaccinations , forced to live or die , forced to follow laws that really don't make any sense . Every day we allow someone else to be in control of every aspect of our lives . WE ARE NOT FREE! We have people fighting in wars that either don't come home or when they do they don't have anything . Our food has Gmo , every year there's a new disease or cancer . No cure but they make fortunes off of people's sickness . Marijuana is illegal however tobacco and alcohol have killed millions of people but we are expected to believe that our government cares about us . They care only about the money and unessary taxes they force us to pay . We work and work and don't even see all of OUR money . Wake up America we are the NEW SLAVES !

  • The state is evil.

    They own nobody, but they act as if they do. They punish everyone who disagrees with them and is most often the cause of criminals. If they decide someone is bad, they can all attack. Even worse, due to the hierarchy, If someone at the top wants something everyone else has to abide, meaning they are very dangerous.

  • Police commit the same crimes but are protecting by law unlike criminals.

    . People nowadays become cops for power not to help others. They want to arrest others and speed and even use their weapons. It's not about keeping the peace anymore.
    Criminals also do wrong but unlike cops their not protected by the law and judges. A police officer also always has back up with other officers unlike criminals. People can protect themselves from criminals but can do nothing about officers. So yes officers are more dangerous than criminals.

  • Police have to much power

    We don't have police any more we have bullies that service a agenda I am happy to see these shootings it's about time the public fights back maybe they will get the point and people are no longer going to take there military BS and Nazi tactics they are there to serve us not government agenda as a mater of fact the government is there to serve us not there own interests

  • Power Hungry Monsters

    Cops are above the law, because they are humans JUST like us, they ONLY care about themselves. They can and will do ANYTHING they want. You cant really blame the cops, they are JUST like us. You need to blame the system and find a way to stop this Idiocracy

  • Police arrest innocent men and women every day

    The U.S. has more citizens in jail than any other country in the world as well as having an estimated 100,000 Inmates that are actually innocent. You can't forget all the people Victimized by law enforcement. Small children having large guns shoved in their face only for it to be later confirmed the wrong home.

  • Who ya gonna call?

    Very simple answer. The next time you are being victimized by a policeman, call a criminal for help. How long would you have to wait (what is the criminal's response time? Perhaps the question itself is flawed. In my area of the country, with a population of 2.5 million there have been perhaps 1200 murders in the last 5 years and less than 3 on them were committed by policemen.

  • No, absolutely not.

    This is not even something to think about, as far as i'm concern criminal comes from the public, so if you want to be safe you better respect law, yes they too are human, and all human make mistakes, we should give those man and women credit for dealing with dangerous people,

    i'll rather have a hard law then weak one.

  • Action without consequence

    The federal mafia is one of the most organized crime syndicate in existence. They don't *own* cops and politicians, they *are* cops and politicians. Huge difference. The first thing an aspiring cop tends to learn, should they want to actually protect and serve, is that they picked the wrong job.
    The biggest difference between a cop and a common criminal is that the cop has legal protection to misbehave as he pleases. That makes the cop far more dangerous. It's a difference between action with- or without consequence. The latter makes it easy to feel you can abuse your position and get away with almost anything.

  • What is wrong with you people?

    You seriously think cops are worse than criminals? There are a lot more awful things that criminals do than what SOME cops do. We seriously need to get the image that "all cops are criminals" out of the masses' heads. They aren't all bad people. I guess we should call criminals when we need to help us from now on then. So stupid.
