  • It's terrible and i hate the fact so many officials hired to protect us are corrupt =(
  • Police brutality is wrong. It’s morally wrong. It costs the taxpayers a bunch of money. It’s not an effective tool for preventing or reducing crime. In fact, police brutality is a crime. Police brutality doesn’t prevent or reduce crime. It’s using criminal activity to clarify and amplify society’s social hierarchy. It’s not good for business. And it costs taxpayers plenty.... If one has experienced a negative confrontation with a public officer one should do the following things: -Go to supervisor of officer -Take it to courts. -Go to newspaper reporters. -Join citizen advisory committee. -Become aware of the political ways to aid your situation. -Participate in community activism.
  • I think cops should be subjected to frequent and random drug testing (for performance-enhancing substances). Professional athletes face these tests, and they're not responsible for keeping peace between citizens. A cop losing his sh*t on 'Roid Rage is likely more dangerous than the perp he's trying to stop.
  • I think that any cop who tries a little "brutality" on myself or any like minded citizens is not going to like what they find. More and more people are starting to realize that there are many ABUSERS of power, or drugs, or whatever on the "force" and not taking what they do and say or granted. The police state will be overturned if they press us further.
  • Not much. Some people deserve it and some people don't. I'm not a very big fan of police myself.

      you deserve it
  • Metropolitan Washington Airport Police beat a girl up, throwing her across the room into a metal chair and into the woman in yellow. Then they picked her up and threw her against a table. After that, they bashed her head into that metal table, giving her a concussion. Then they twisted her arm so hard that it was about to break, at Reagan National Airport.
    • Roaring
      That's terrible. I hope someone video recorded the event.
    • Mr PantsFellDown
      you mean kennedy airport.
  • I used to believe all police were good and they protected and served. I still believe most police are good, hardworking people. However, recent cases of police brutality changed my opinion. Crooked cops beat up innocent people and then press phony charges against them to cover up the beating. Many of the beating victims are young women, elderly people and even people in wheelchairs who cannot defend themselves. For example, in this video, Metropolitan Washington Airport Police beat a girl up, throwing her across the room into a metal chair and into the woman in yellow. Then they picked her up and threw her against a table. After that, they bashed her head into that metal table, giving her a concussion. Then they twisted her arm so hard that it was about to break, at Reagan National Airport.
  • I think its disgusting, they are meant to protect us that is thier job. I think brutality by anyone is disgraceful but by someone who is meant to protect us is somehow worse.:)
  • I am against it. For more than 20 years I have taught police "non-lethal force". I have even dismissed a cadet for signs of problems only to have the chief put them back on. Most of the time the policeman is scared and has a "Adrenal Dump" and loses control. Some are just mean people. Both kinds should never be police officers. Not all arrests that result in injury are police brutality.
  • Whether the police are being abused or being the abuser it's wrong. But they should not have to sacrifice their own lives to prove they are not abusive.
  • I'm against it.

      This is the fourth answer in the list of answers on your profile page but the first one I've been able to see on the question page where you posted the answer the others are missing what's up with that?
  • Do you expect anyone to say, "I'm for police brutality?"
  • If the choices are for or against, as opposed to does it exist, to what degree, and how to end if it does -- then yes I am opposed.
