    I have never heard of cops pursuing a dollar item shop to lift this is classic klansman mentality on the part of the Arizona Police Department that's why our government don't call them what they are domestic terrorists that we use our tortora tag dollars to support them and this is what they do to black people all across the United States and yes we do pay our taxes as well so we pay for this abuse and it's b*******

    Insane cop response. They should be fired, and forced to wear ankle bracelets to track them, and
    no guns, leave them jobless.

    Every police officer involved in this should be fired and go to jail simple it will get the message out to the rest of them.. NO money spent on training its an excuse.. U train from the academy and on new tactics when they come not when this happens u say more training. If u send them to jail this will get the message out to the rest of them.

    In cities like Butte Falls, or Grants Pass, Oregon there are no police at all, for most of the time. The people in these cities usually police themselves, and things are rather placid most times. These smaller cities can’t afford a police force, and rarely will the need for a sheriff to arrive. People policing themselves has its pros and cons. Any logical person can decipher quickly what those pros and cons would be.

    Police are entitled and think they are above the law and no one ever questions them. They should not have the right to pull guns out for what ever reason they want.

    There must be an exceptional and severe punishment for lying public officials especially cops. This does not make sense. And as Trevor rightly says, ‘how many innocent people are in jail because of lying cops”.

    Well then blame the voters for allowing this to contitue to happen time and time again, because of the nasty macho narrative that runs thru some cities in u.s, with the police chiefs.

    I have a different take on this.the person calling did not exactly say my $1.00 doll has been stolen by a 4 year old child . All they said there was a robbery. Police don’t know it a doll toned from the store. They don’t know if they are armed or not. They have to go in full tilt ready for anything even cap the head. Appropriate thing is to stop hands up and all would go down well I assume in 98% of cases
    Cop did not lie when he said I made him spread his feet. He did by kicking them apart. At this stage he did not know if dude was armed or not.
    There was excessive force from the police but they had to suspect armed robbers
    Hindsight is 20/20
    Another point is the thriving 4 year old. She is a minor but the supervising adult should be arrested for shoplifting. What 4 year old just steals like that. Most 4 year olds ask mum or dad if they can have something

    In Europe, police training takes 2-3 years. Here we train them for only an average of 9 weeks. Look up Brutality Bonds. Municipalities had better get wise or they will be paying out for law suits for decades. And the wealthy underwriters of these bonds are making money off of police misbehavior.

    Love you Noah but cops have families too. Research how police get shot when not expected. I've lost 3 friends, my father lost his partner can and he was shot. You crossed the line bro.

  • Christopher DePrenda

    And go fuck yourself if you think otherwise. I want my family home and with their kids.

  • Christopher DePrenda

    What it is, cops just like soldiers, deal with so much shit, and are scrutinized for seconds of action, that this situation is a part of all they deal with. This was not right, but think about what they do. Are you a cop or a soldier? My family are all cops, they've seen shit and been in it. Put a badge on or battle fatigue's then you'll get it.
