Well its a good thing none of the attackers were tortured. That would have been inhumane.

You are correct about complaints against police and it does come with the job, HOWEVER, when you have a President and an Attorney General backing these protests and showing support to everyone BUT the police that changes the game. The legal system did it's job and people don't like it. The powers that be should be defending the law instead of inciting a riot!

Not one of these killings was by the police? Where is Al "not so" Sharpton? Let's all riot and burn down all the vacant buildings.....

Such a double standard. People first cry police are targeting individuals unfairly, stopping them for no reason or "harassing them". Now all of a sudden, police aren't doing enough. Well folks, you can't have it both ways. This is what is going to happen when everyone cry's foul about the police. I wouldn't doubt it if crime starts to increase. Not just here but nationally as well. How can we expect the police to do their jobs properly when many of the people they encounter call them "racist"? Or threaten them with a lawsuit etc.? To make matters worse, no political or public figure is standing up for them. I would imagine its a tough time to be a police officer. The bed has been made, now we must sleep in it...

You say the police are profiling? Do YOU feel safe walking down the street on Hamilton Hill or anywhere else at night when someone walks by you dressed all in dark clothes with a hood over their head? Do you get nervous as you walk by and feel like they're going to come up from behind you as you pass? Why? They didn't do anything to you. What happens if someone sees that person and reports it? Call police. Now it's their problem and they have to respond. Now they're the racist when the situation gets ugly. If they don't respond and the guy does turn out to be trouble, who gets sued? The young kid in Cleveland that was shot by the police when he was waving around a pellet pistol...why was that report made if the caller thought and stated "it's probably a juvenile and the gun is probably fake"? (by the way, this tidbit of info wasn't conveyed to those officers when they were dispatched) On the other side of the argument how about preaching to the public to help the police solve crime instead of having the "don't snitch" attitude. How about we all look in the mirror and ask OURSELVES "what can I do to make things better?".

This sounds like the press trying to make something out of nothing. You hear Mr. Bennett? Few complaints, please stop stiring the pot

hodgkins - The Department has been encouraging minorities and females to take the police exam for years with little success. There must be qualified applicants taking the exam and scoring well enough to get hired.
