Should the public play a larger role in determining the discipline of someone found to have been involved in police abuse?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No, The public doesn't have the skill set

    Most people do not have the education, Training and experience to work through a process. A mob mentality ensues when the public is involved. Black Mirror's "White Bear" and "Hated in the Nation" are two fictional example of what happens when the public is judge and jury. There are too many factual examples (riots) and studies that prove that the public cannot and should not make decisions.

  • No The Shouldn't

    I do not believe the public should play a larger role in determining the discipline of someone found to be involved in police abuse. This person would be considered a criminal and they should be disciplined by the same process every other criminal is disciplined through. There's no need for the public to play a larger role.

  • The public should not play a larger role in determining the discipline of someone found to have been involved in police abuse.

    The public should not play a larger role in determining the discipline of someone found to have been involved in police abuse. Since every case is different, I think that the courts should be the one to decide the guilt and punishment of the person being convicted of the crime.

  • No, the public is not qualified to make decisions on discipling law enforcement.

    No, the public should not play a larger role in determining police abuse discipline. If a trial takes place, the public will have a say in the punishment, as a 12 person jury of the officer's peers will decide his or her fate. Since many people in the public don't have a good opinion of law enforcement, opening up greater involvement could prevent an officer from receiving a fair and impartial trial.

  • No that would be more of revenge

    I don't see a need to change the legal system based on a crime. If there is police abuse going on then those who are charged should face a normal trial and sentencing. If you open it up more to the public you may get more of a revenge approach which would bring down our legal system.

  • No, the public should not play a larger part in regards to punishing somebody involved in police abuse.

    I do not think that the public should play a larger role in determining the discipline of someone found to have been involved in police abuse. I think that doing so can create a lot of problems and issues regarding such cases. A lot of communities may have some biases against police officers.
