Even if you pretend the legislation enforcers of the Blue Line Gang are somehow good or necessary (they aren’t), if a cop can’t settle a situation in less than a couple of minutes, he needs to just let his victim go.
I once sat in a convenience store in the middle of the night and watched a cop force a guy to do sobriety test after sobriety test– for well over half an hour– until the exhausted guy finally “failed” one and was arrested. It should have ended with one test, if it was necessary at all.
In the same town a few years later, there was a case where a cop (possibly the same one, but I’m not sure who I watched molest the guy) hassled a guy for a long time on suspicion of driving drunk. Finally, the victim had had enough and told Officer King he was leaving. “You know where I live; come get me if you want to arrest me” and he left his car to walk home. This caused the cop to flip out and electrotorture the guy excessively which resulted in a lottery win for the cop’s victim. On the backs of all local victims of government.
These are cases where the cop wanted to commit a kidnapping and couldn’t think of a reason to justify it, so he molested his victim long enough to find something. This is evil. And it is rampant.
It’s no wonder people run after 30 to 45 minutes of an armed goon in their face trying to find a reason to kidnap or rob him.
The only potentially “good cop” is an ex-cop. Cops are scum. Yes, all of them, even your nice Uncle Bob the cop.
