Any whiff of "contempt of cop" gets you tazed, cuffed and charged with felony obstruction. Spend some time on YouTube, and you'll see ghastly over reactions to minimal provocation by police towards citizens, especially minorities.

Even something as banal as "Cops" shows evidence of this:

Reruns from the late 1980s show officers talking and diffusing situations, but busting skulls when needed. Today's episodes show SWAT teams kicking in doors to serve child support warrants.

Boys and their toys they say, and the "War on Terror" has certainly brought lots of new goodies and not very subtle incentives to the job.

It is possible to be so close to the forest as to not see the trees.
Figured that would be the answer you gave, watch re-runs of cops and youtube to see the horrible police do bad things to wonderful people.....

No need to reply anymore I have no need to converse with you and the opinions you brought to support your opinion
