Update: the manhandling cop got fired and the other one got demoted

I'm surprised that something was actually done about this rather than just letting this stuff slide.  But I'm also surprised that I'm surprised.  Shouldn't this be the expected outcome?

I guess it happens sometimes.  I wouldn't say I'm surprised, but if hey let it slide, I wouldn't have been surprised either.

It should.  It's not.  That is the surprise.

Government agencies, including the cops, don't discipline themselves ... wasn't that so in your agency?  It is in mine.  People are well intentioned, but then The System intervenes and it all goes to shit.

Yes, but not a cop conspiracy.  Not a government conspiracy.  Just a bureaucracy covering its own ass.  Don't like bureaucracy?  Then don't vote to have more government agencies, and more missions for the agencies we already have.  More government isn't the answer, it is the problem.

Part of me wonders if this would also have been the punishment had the nurse been black rather than white.  I can't quite divest myself of the feeling that in that case, it would've been administrative leave with pay and a talking-to.  Considering it took this long to sack him when that should have been an immediate frog-march out the door as soon as that video came out...

We are a nation of laws.  And all the laws need to be applied equally.  If they aren't applied to someone else, they may not be applied to me.

We will all be equal, when we are all 6 foot tall White males who are my age, and go to synagogue.  Otherwise, short of Star Wars clone wars, don't expect much equality.  Laws are so the little guys aren't dicks as big as the big guys.  Your Civics 101 is quaint.

And if it had been a fatal shooting rather than a comparably mild manhandling.  The thought has crossed my mind.  I'll leave it at that.

So laws are just for rich white guys, right?  The question is "do you think that is right".

There is right, there is left.  Two hands still, thank G-d.  Why choose one over the other?
