Default No more Pepper Spray for Seattle

Seattle mayor just took away the pepper spray from the Seattle Police. One more tool taken away. I think the police should just refuse ta show up next time the protesters show up and let em have at it. Crazy crap goin on!

I think the cops
will say screw it and leave. 57 cops walked off the job today in Buffalo. Some of the big city’s leadership has failed is police force and the city and its citizens will pay the price.

This is bad leadership leads to low moral and bad decision making in any business.

Actually no they did not walk off the job. They resigned from the emergency response team unit in a show of so-called support of their fellow officers that were suspended without pay for assaulting a 75-year-old man. All 57 remain police officers.

In the walking off of the emergency response team shows exactly what is wrong with police these days. Rather than speak out and take a stand against their fellow officers for assaulting a 75-year-old man they stand in support. Until police have accountability and take it upon themselves to police themselves they will never gain the respect that they once had many moons ago.

Lol at this...

Course it is ok for someone to ignore commands and defy curfew orders then got aggressive with police and acted like he might be reaching for equipment..

That's a hard one to comprehend. I get the "cops are human" argument, the "mistakes happen" excuse, and the "few bad apples" narrative, but when an entire unit shows support for their so-called "brother" that clearly dropped the ball we have a problem.

Upper management and politics of the hierarchy within the police force probably create this to its entirety,
if you've ever held a county or local government job you would be able to relate to my comment.

Why would an old fragile geezer knowingly go to a protest that he should have known had a high likelihood of getting violent? Why, when the police were ordered to clear the street, did he stand in front of the cop and poke at his arm with his phone?

I think he played a stupid game, and won a stupid prize. Does he go around doing this a lot? Perhaps he shouldn't go out without an attendant.

As a cop right now, you can’t arrest anyone and if you do, they are released before the paper work is done.

Yeah, I thought about that too but when you consider the crap going on you would think they
would restrain some of that young bravado for someone more threatening, then seeing the pooling blood
and nobody bats an eye?

Exactly, yet most police do not see it that way. Exhibit a is posted a few reply’s up with Crackers ridiculous attempt at justification

I can see how that would wear on you and constantly re evaluate your decisions.

Excellent plan. Leave the police with only lethal options.
