I have always been under the impression that policemen are there to “Protect and Serve”. After all we pay them to do their jobs. It seems to me, that someone should be looking into all of these incidents with cops being over zealous and using unnecessary force. And it should come from a Federal level, not local. I do understand that it is a stressful job, but lately and too often, the cops involved, have no sense of how to diffuse a simple interaction with it’s cititzens. I personally feel they should have to take a training class every 6 months (yes, 6 months) to help them re-align themselves. Sort of like what the military is suppose to do with our men and woman after war. You can’t just come back from a very hostile environment and pick up your life as though you’ve never seen dead bodies, been shot at, etc. Here is yet another story where a cop got too agressive and this time with a man of the cloth who has a heart condition!

Officer Raymond Berryman, you suck! If indeed there were 30 witnesses, plus you threatened his wife with arrest as she tried to help her husband, that you makes you a punk ass and a liar! You’d think after the athlete that was detained recently while his mother-in-law was dying in the hospital, or the cop in Oklahoma that placed a Paramedic in choke hold while a patient was in route to the hospital, that some cops would stop licking their nuts and swelling up at people so hastily! But of course, that would be too much like right! Follow the link: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090702/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_congregation_protest for the rest of this story.
