Hey, cops... want respect?

Then stop shooting people's dogs, kicking in doors with a SWAT team over lesser alleged offenses, remember your oath to the Constitution, and STOP DOING STUPID CRAP LIKE THIS!!!

A guy can dance, can't he?

When I think about bad cops, I think more about something like this than dancing at the mall:

...”and stop doing crap like this”

WTH!? Really? This is a great way to connect with the public.

Shooting peoples dogs, kicking in doors swat style, etc... if unwarranted are terrible things that happen too often. A couple light hearted leos joining in a flash mob is awesome. There should be more of this type of thing.

Well this was all organized and cleared upstairs
further, the officers were paid to do all this
It wasn't a Flash Mob
It's made up political crap to benefit some hole in governance.

not really appropriate, in my opinion. creates a moment of weakness when in a position of public trust, so enhances danger to officers and bystanders. at least they kept xtrol of their guns.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

They might want to respect each other first and not shoot your brother. Glocks in action...

Looks like the search for respect should turn inward.. and stop shooting each other.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/st-louis-...234609115.html

"Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner announced the charge against Nathaniel Hendren, 29, in the death of 24-year-old Katlyn Alix, as they allegedly played a game in which a revolver's cylinder was emptied, one bullet put back and the two colleagues took turns pointing at each other and pulling the trigger."

just caught the end of that story on ABC world news

I am inclined to think that there is now a test to insure that cops are dumber than a box of river rocks

talk about leading by example .........

and the dead female officer - who was married to someone else - was at an aparment with 2 men at 1:00am. Probably intoxicated too. Stupid.

Now I just have to wonder how many people these two brilliant cops screwed over before one died and the other was arrested?
