As retired LEO I can add a few points to this story as I worked in Southern California. If, and I say IF because I have seen bad cops, the story is as the officer wrote it in his report is true then the arrest is justified. She was lawfully stopped on a public road for a violation of the vehicle code, she recognized the authority of the officer by 1) pulling over, 2) handing over her DL, registration and insurance card, she seemed to have lost it when she realized she was getting a citation and claimed “everyone else was speeding too” (I used to say its like the lottery, you can’t win if you don’t play) just because everyone else is speeding doesn’t mean you do too.
The officer only has to state his name and department, if asked he has to give his badge number, not show her his badge unless he is in plain clothes. He was in uniform, in a marked patrol unit AND there was clearly another deputy present. NEVER is it a good idea on a traffic stop, or anywhere else, during a lawful contact to lay hands on an officer. She is dead in the water, her attorney is an ambulance chaser.
I know there are bad cops out there, I unfortunately worked with one, and reported it to my supervisor, but that being said there are also some very good cops out there. Now, our police departments are getting more and more militarized, and the time will come when good cops will be eventually pushed out, but we are not there yet.

I have studied Islam, the Quran, Muhammad, for years now, everything I could get me hands on I read and studied over and over again. I have studied how nations turning to sharia and Islam instantly regress in thought and actions. I have watched how Islam has ravaged Europe and left destruction in its path and how Islam supporters in this country are silencing anyone who dares refute the claim Islam is peaceful.
Islam is a lie from the pit, this tract puts Islam in its correct light, truth hurts.

Palestine, the Palestinian people, refugees…….these are lies from the pit.
The truncated West Germany, after WWII, absorbed and rehabilitated no less than 9.7 million displaced persons. Small Austria received 178,000 Hungarian refugees in the aftermath of the Hungarian revolution of 1956. Italy provided a home for 585,000 Italians displaced from territory ceded to Yugoslavia, and from various parts of Africa. France gave permanent asylum to 1.4 million refugees (including Algerian Muslims) displaced by the emergence of new sovereign states in North Africa and Indochina. The Netherlands, tiny and crowded, welcomed and settled 230,000 refugees from Indonesia. Turkey resettled 150,000 Turks expelled by the Communist regime in Bulgaria.

The amazing thing to me is that after 50 years the right of return is still an issue and is being kept alive by the large number of Palestinians still in refugee camps. Why are they still there after 50 years? On a personal note, my family and I, along with millions of others, lost their land and property as a result of the partition of India in 1947. We were refugees. Both the Indian and Pakistani governments provided some help, but most importantly the refugees themselves, after a little while, made new lives for themselves. There are no refugee camps on both sides of the India-Pakistan border with millions asserting their right of return.

I’m not quite sure what the fuss is about here, I understand bad cops are out there, but let’s keep our heads.
As retired LEO I have investigated many crimes involving children, very few who were guilty were willing to be honest with the police, this I see as a parenting issue.
1) If the mother of one of the girls involved ask for an investigation to be done, then it would be dereliction of duty for the officers to ignore it, and I dare say many of you railing against cops would be angry if it were your case and they did not.
2) If the nine year old was not there when the officers went to talk to her, they are required to follow up and go where she is.
3) As I stated above many juveniles were not only unwilling to be honest, but were also belligerent and aggressive. If the investigating officer believes she was lying to him then he has every right to handcuff her and take her for further questioning and or processing.
Not all the facts are in the above story I am sure, there is plenty more in this girls background that most likely played a role in her arrest. Mom is going to be protective whether her daughter is in the right or wrong. An internal investigation was done that found the officers did nothing wrong, I take this with a grain of salt, but like I said before let’s keep our heads and rise up against actions of bad cops, this in my opinion is not one of them.
Since when is abusing a child not being a "bad" cop? By the way I was an officer for 15 years and never questioned a child without a parent present and certainly would not have handcuffed one for such a minor infraction.

This kid is still messed up, God compels NO ONE to sin and he does not know the name of his Creator? Really?
Pray for this young man, he has taken a big step, but satan has influence over him still.

This is a sign of the times, sad sad times. This woman, and I use that term in the loosest sense possible, will one day live to rue this decision.
God forgive her.

Typical this skinned, my mind is made up liberals. These snot nosed “reporters” are democrat yes men.

This country has been “conversed” to death, truth has become relative and racism has been relegated as the sign off for every liberal media outlet in America.
Racism is an excuse not to try, a reason to fail and the liberal last ditch effort talking point.
You keep using that word but I don't think you know the meaning of that word"
"Racism" is a method to shut up those with opposing viewpoints. People, there are a hell of a lot of other things worse than be a so called "racist". You white progs better wake up soon. They will be coming for you next. They will be coming for your daughters and wives.
Remember in the 90s when the media was talking about "reverse racism"? Like the word racism means only white on black. That was one of the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Honestly I think that race relations were just fine until this president, he had rolled it back to the 60s. Any progress that was made prior to him has been thrown out the window.
Actually, what we need to do is just STFU about it and all just get along. Seems to me we all got along pretty good until the Obamas came to town.
Here's The Conversation the folks asking for it have in mind:
1) Everything in which there is a disparity of success between whites and blacks is due to black superiority and drive when it's positive, and due to white hatred of blacks when it's negative.
2) Blacks have no responsibility or ability to do anything to change this.
3) Asians are a successful minority in spite of white hatred because of their Jedi Mind Powers.
4) How much money do you want?
Did I miss anything?
The definition of racism- voting for a person because they are black and that will make you feel good about yourself.
The worst thing is, he probably really believes they never discuss it. They talk about it so much, that it's basically innate and not memorable. After all, most of us don't remember turning the key in the ignition of the car this morning because we do it so much. Unless it's memorable (like the starter started shooting sparks), we have no real recollection.
The only racism that I see on TV is right on MSNBC panel shows.

Here we go again, another liberal waving the Christian flag because it is politically expedient. How she can justify her political beliefs with Christianity is beyond me and I’ll leave the judgement of her heart to God, but I will speak out against her “Christian” walk all day long. She is a hypocrite……
April 30, 2014 at 9:49pm
To God, not to a God, for there is only one Yahweh.
As a Christian man I am to pray for this individual that he may turn his life over to a God, he may have I do not know, and leave his final judgement up to God and God alone.
That being said while we are forgiven by God, if we ask, for things done here in this life, it does not take away earthly consequences for our actions. This man died a difficult death, but it was nothing compared to what he did to his victim. He gave no concern for her comfort, feelings, frame of mind, she went through heII. if he did repent of his sins praise God, but he paid a harsh, but not undeserved price for his earthly actions.
To God, not to a God, for there is only one Yahweh.

That’s the best you could come up with KNEW?
So follow the typical liberal line when a lefty shows the true colors of today’s democrat party, defame the reporting party, name call and denounce, but don’t say anything about the story itself. I know it has to hurt when your side gets caught being everything you try to label conservatism with, but at least have the fortitude to say she was wrong, unless of course you agree with her.

The liberals seek to remove God from everyday life, in doing so they think they will not be reminded of the sin we all commit and the resultant punishment for unrepentant, unsaved souls.
God cannot be removed regardless of effort by liberals, He cannot be undone by having no belief in Him and the punishment of eternity in hades is no less real because you choose not to think of it. Everything happening, in an ever increasing pace seemingly, can only occur because God allows it to happen. He is trying to shake people’s faith in anything and everything here on earth, He wants you to understand only Christ Jesus is worthy of our faith, only He can be trusted, relied upon.
He died a horrible death so we don’t have to, He paid the price….His gift is free.

It’s hard enough in this world to be accepted if you are unattractive on the outside, but then to be so incredibly ugly, as feminists are, on the inside is two strikes against you.

I see much of the same anti-Christian pro-gay rhetoric that comes out when these stories come up. Homosexuality is and has always been a sin in the eyes of God, Jesus said he came to fulfill the law not break it, instead of my re-writing about it here is a good article explaining this; http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/did-jesus-condemn-homosexuality/
Another point is all Christians sin, yes this is true. However, when a Christian seeks forgiveness for sin he or she is to TURN FROM that sin and endeavor to not commit the same sin again. The apostle Paul tried to get people of his time to understand that our salvation by grace is not a ticket to sin, in other words just because you will be forgiven is not a reason to continue sinning. Then we have the worn out adage “born this way,” which in part is true as we are all born into sin, but it is our choice to continue in sin or choose God, unfortunately too many love sin more than God and they want to pigeon hole God into their view instead of understanding who He is be studying His word.
Each and every one of us will be accountable to God for what we have done with the life he has given us, He sent Christ Jesus so that none should perish, but that has to be our choice not to suffer eternally for our sins. I pray everyone diligently seek the truth through the Holy Spirit on this matter, time is short.

I AM NOT SAYING THIS TO CLEAR THIS OFFICER. that being said, as a retired LEO that has had surgery due to a dog bite on duty and as an officer that has had to shoot a dog on a different occasion I know what it is like to be in a split second situation.
There are not, to my knowledge, regulations as to using a taser on an animal. When a dog charges you revert to your training, the vast majority of police shootings happen between 0-ten feet and are over in less than 10 seconds. I encountered many many dogs in my time on the force and more were kind than were not, I own 4 rescue dogs now. I have a neighbor on my street that has 2 aggressive dogs that are out continually roaming the neighborhood 3-4 times a week for hours at a time. As for the dogs in the video I do not know how many times they get out, but it seems that whichever neighbor called to police probably did so out of frustration with the dogs being out often. As for calling animal control, that’s a laugh in the county I worked in, the dog that bit me had one week earlier jumped into an animal control truck window a bit the AC officer in the face and was left in the owners care.
Again for those of you that want to go off on me I am not clearing the officer in this shooting, I see police becoming militarized and I don’t like it and unfortunately good officers that do their job strictly by the law have to wear the black eye bad officers give law enforcement as a whole.
Sure. Your and my jobs were dangerous and sometimes we got hurt. It goes with the territory. If the dog is latched onto my leg I'm going to stop it before it does harm. However, in this situation and in far too many other situations the police react with lethal violence first. That is my problem.
There were many options open to the officer, including retreating to his vehicle and waiting for help or calling the owners. (But we don't retreat do we, because by God we're the police! You do what we say!)
Instead, in his mind, he had the "right" to pull his weapon and kill the dog. He should be fired. Period. If his first option when dealing with a non -lethal threat is to kill it, then I don't want him anywhere near a badge and a gun.
It's that damned mindset trained into us that: 1. We are the police so F everybody else. 2. We get to go home, no matter what or who else suffers, 3. It is them vs us- all the time.
We should be peace officers first, not law enforcement officers. Anybody can enforce the law, a good cop knows how to make peace in the community he's serving. I had a mantra I followed: "First, do no harm." If you find yourself hurting innocent people when trying to do your job, You are doing it wrong. Find a better way. My second rule was "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." The NSA could learn from that.
Like I said, that cop pulls a gun on my dog, he's going to hear a lot of safeties coming off and a quiet. "That would
Take that somewhere else. If you can't handle dogs without lethal force you most certainly should not be a police officer. Many, many other ways to handle the situation. In this case, this man is not fit for duty. He would not serve in my community for damn sure. One way or another, he wouldn't.

The constitution means nothing to the left and especially Obama, it stands in the way of complete control and ultimate power.
These next two elections and the few years left in the little tin gods term left will decide if this nation stands or falls. I for one do not know if this leviathan can be turned back, guess we will see.
