"We believe (Wade) was fighting with the officers," Plummer tells whio.com. "And if you would just comply, we wouldn't have that situation, OK? My officers have to go home to their families and their loved ones. We don't pay them enough to fight people like that in that jail."

This sheriff's argument is as hollow as his soul.

Dave Chappelle nailed it with this quote:

“Blue lives matter. What, was you born a police? That is not a blue life. That is a blue suit. If you don’t like it, take that suit off, find a new job, because I’ll tell you right now, if I could quit being black today, I’d be out the game.”

The whole "we are a nation" thing is the biggest psyop ever played. [let alone dragging in the 'true' native americans] Though, some reflection [and surely because of the police treatment] getting out of ones vehicle when you know yourself you did/have something illegal and ready to jail... You come out blasting if you have a gun of some sorts. Plenty of videos of that, a cop walking to a vehicle getting riddles with bullets.

It's all in politics, if they weren't too invested in the prison system or genuinely had more empathetic braincells of real sorts, they would take a look at the law.

The law makes criminals double down on killing a cop rather than going to jail. It's this that make Cops rather empty a clip or two than be shot themselves over a petty 1 gram weed-crime.

And then also some Murican own stuff I can't really feel about, the situation in the country/county it self.

If Trump took his hair off and went Buddhist there is about 15% these shitscenes can reduce.

It fucked itself so hard it's hardshit littered with some dried pee, very hard too clean.

Agree with the first part.
Strongly disagree with the people shooting police part.

The law makes criminals double down on killing a cop rather than going to jail. It's this that make Cops rather empty a clip or two than be shot themselves over a petty 1 gram weed-crime.

Report: Number Of Police Officers Killed Spikes In 2014

According to the report, the number of police officers killed by firearms also rose by 56 percent — from 32 in 2013 to 50 in 2014.

Now let's contrast that with the number of reported police killings around the same period.

Who Dies at the Hands of US Police—and How Often

It is not clear how many people police in the US kill each year, since there is no federal agency that accurately keeps track of such information. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) compiles annual statistics for “justified homicides” by police, and all reported police killings are registered as “justified” killings by the FBI. Since participation in reporting homicides to the FBI by police and sheriff’s departments is voluntary, only about 800 police agencies—out of 18,000—provide statistics.

According to FBI statistics, there were 461 “justified homicides” by police in 2013, but the website KilledByPolice.net, reported that US police killed around 748 people in just the last eight months of 2013, and 1,100 in 2014. The Killed By Police figures were compiled using establishment media sources; because not every police killing is reported, and checking all news sources across the country is virtually impossible, these figures likely underestimate the number of police killings of civilians.

Some quick math...

1100 civilians killed by police /  50 police killed by firearms  
=  22 times more civilians are killed by police

Police can quit their job.

I need to explain: I agree with you but think my point about police killings:

It's not about the killings perse, but even when we look at that:

  • Group: Police: OH SHIT they shoot our dude (goes around almost all police stations in range)

  • "Gang"/independent/mafia: Oh shit, police got our dude (they don't share it)

If the police know that "some" people have the tactic of "going full on guns blazing" they are as a group and with that knowlegde easier to draw gun and fully clip someone who even looks like one who's carrying a gun. It's like taking a gum after smoking because you saw a girl looking at you. It's not a right assumption but the cycle goes on and on.

But this all comes with the disclaimer: I'm European.

Maybe. Still the 22:1 police kill ratio is over the top.

Meh TBQH if the police were doing what is in the collective consiousness of all it should be [any amount]:0 and there would be marvel movies about it.

I think, for the USA, the 70'ies and (maybe) 80'ies did a lot of damage for the police in reputation as they were 'taking over' instead of 'shutting down' drugs/crack operations, but that's like LOL CIA and FBI shizzle.

You may be right about the change from the 70's.

Unfortunatley, i think that this has been a slow and steady planned-transition to turn the US into a police state.
9/11 and anthrax attacks were then used to trojan horse the patriot act.

That was when they took off the gloves against the public.

I wouldn't know too much (first hand) about that, but the military material signed over to the police concerned me.

The Pilot episode of the X-files always bestranged me like 'that's over the top' (the tank wall buster thingie) but that was true. (and I watched that in like 2005-2006).

Tyranny didn't work out too well for the USSR, Nazi Germany, and Cambodia so why are Americans embracing it?

In each given example an outside force stepped in and forced them to change. The USSR couldn't keep up with the economics of cold war, and gave in.
There are no Chinese or Russian aircraft carriers near any US shore. They're parked at home for defense.
We live in a unipolar era where the US economically and militarily rules the world.

If tyranny is so wonderful, why do North Koreans try to escape North Korea?
