I agree they are trained to enforce the laws. What I don't agree with is they are (or should be) held to a higher
standard. They are human beings doing a job that at times puts their life at risk. That must be considered during any
Well, they are human beings who have been highly trained to respond to a
multitude of encounters and are very aware of the risks when they
graduate from the academy.
I do believe when someone is highly trained they should be held
accountable to the standard for which they were trained. In the case of
LE, their accountability increases with the level of knowledge they obtain.
Those people who have no training can't be held accountable for what
they've never been taught. OTOH, those who ARE trained should be held
accountable for what THEY are taught.
It's a reasonable conclusion that LE will be held to a higher standard
of accountability since they've achieved a higher standard of education.
Don't you agree?

Do you need a PHD to know that it's a crime to not pull over when a
cop is trying to stop you? I think everyone else here figures that's
common sense and if you're too dumb to understand that, you shouldn't
be driving. Plus this perp had special training, his several other
encounters with police that resulted in resisting, interfering, etc.
Because I'm not a lawyer or a cop I had never heard of the existence of the "color of law." It refers to the
depravation of rights under color of law. The dead guy's had his right to life revoked, but what we don't know is how
or what he was doing to cause the cop to do what he did.
A hypothetical example I read sited arresting someone because their opinion was not the same as yours. That is
obviously wrong to do. However, if the cop in this instance felt his life was in danger he has every right to use
force to end that threat, right?
- I'm a REAL conservative.
- I don't back off my viewpoint just because they tell me to.
- They're irritated that I disagree with them.
- I counter their arguments and they can't counter mine.
- They want me to just 'shut up' because they don't like my viewpoint.
Take your pick. <shrugs> Maybe my viewpoint scares them? Beats me.
Yeah. Democrats want everyone else to shut up so they can tell you what
opinion you should be supporting.

I wonder how many of them claim they are conservatives?
Have you seen this, tweeted by one of Trump's black minister pals:

I wasn't referring to any particular current case, only replying to her
assertion that it is okay to resist arrest.
==================================================================Your Right of Defense Against Unlawful Arrest. “Citizens may resist
unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if
necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by
the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v.
U.S., 177 U.S. 529.
It's not a good idea, in general, to resist arrest just because some
law says that you can legally.

smash em, crash em, 100+ mph chase. That's a whole lot more than
a "traffic stop". It would have been a traffic stop if the perp
