    I would have figured they would have followed the NYPD. Especially if it is upstate NY that is more conservative. As much as the left hates cops the right hates public employees.

    It has made my former coworkers very mercenary. 20% of my department is applying for another agency that pays 70% more than we do. We have also lost people to Facebook and Apple.

    If they do away with qualified immunity, no one should want to be one.

    Was almost a cop...wanted to do something more meaningful with my life, maybe make a difference, take a stand, help people, be on the Good Side of things...applied with the City of Phoenix, easily passed the written and physical in the same day, asked to interview the next...some Lieutenant Lady jumped into the interview halfway through, didn't seem to like me much, still not sure if she was being tough in order to judge my reactions, but I never got called back...

    ...she was probably just really angry that she made the mistake of 'playing for the other team' and ruined her chances to get with such a good looking man as me...

    I can see that. Federal police...I'm sure that would turn out well.

    Anybody remember when Barry was jawboning about a National Police Force?
    "Just as well equipped as the military"
    We didn't get any details of what their purpose was to be.

    That will be the end of my career. They don't pay us enough to afford liability insurance like MD's.

    Especially since it will be ex post facto. No insurance company is going to take on the risk of a court suddenly declaring past actions fully liable. At least now they can assume things don't at the time within policy and the law will not be eligible for payouts.

    Well it's all a moot point as long as big city mayors that are liberal with a demo agenda. We'll have to see if voters finally "Get It" and vote the grossly incompetent and negligent mayors and governors out in November 2020, least the ones up for re-election, the others should be impeached or reacalled. Beeatch Blazzio should go to prison for his crimes against humanity.

    Standards will necessarily drop, turnover will increase.............maybe even contracting police officers.................for liability reasons, as well as pension obligations.
    Otherwise, it will be nationalized

    Ohhh Noooo Say it ain't so!

    But if that did happen then I could lateral transfer to Philly or Baltimore or Portland or Boston or New Orleans or one of many other cities ripe for hiring.

    I thought about throwing my hat in the ring, putting a few apps out to see who bites. I’m a CO, so honestly I’m not sure how much worse it can get. Just a thought I’ve been rackin around the brain

    Federalized police would never work out because even big city mayors want favors and they can't get them from some chief in DC who doesn't give two ****s about them.

    Just like auto insurance, they wouldn't take on liability for past actions. Their coverage would start the day you bind coverage.

    My answer is, "I don't care." Let the left/urban dwellers/hood rats fend for themselves. See how they like what they have created. It's much like my answer to the war on drugs (legalize it all and let the chips fall where they may).
