Today, Mr. Emmer and Mr. Cooley seek to get their jobs back as police officers. The haters have already started spewing their satanic green pea soup from the orifice under their noses. This group includes Mr. Cook's Times piece.
The so called hideous video shows two officers being sent to a disturbance, giving it their all to subdue a guy. A fight is just that, a fight. I understand when a video of one is being watched by the naive, they cringe. Fights are ugly.
I have fought a few guys and even a girl, all of whom were smaller than me and were under the influence of things normal people use to operate combustion engines or paint objects or clean brakes.....I could go on but the stuff people are ingesting today is almost hard to believe including the bath salts and the synthetic so called marijuana and meth. These chemicals will cause a person to become a monster, meaning that. They do not feel pain. They do not get tired. It is a nightmare wrestling these folks because nothing in your life including the police academy can prepare you for them. You become exhausted, everything that you have been trained including (striking the leg with a baton) isn't even phasing the person. What's even scarier is the person isn't even tired and is oddly much stronger than you. (I just held on until the Calvary arrived-barely.)
I would pay to watch a couple of media or criminals oops I mean cop haters walk into that Salvation Army incident and short of just double tapping two hollow points into the chest try and arrest that guy.
Take away their cars. Withhold their way over due pay scale increase. Keep raising their insurance. Scream "Brutality" when you happen to witness that resisting arrest is a full contact procedure. Pretty soon, when your space is invaded by a chemically induced zombie rocking your peace and you call 911. The PO will walk in and see the demon and think. " I really don't want my name and picture on TV and be fired and crucified by the public therefore I'm going to suggest they call the folks that don't trust the police and let them restore the peace." Thanks for calling, but no thanks. Have a good day.
