“Bad Apples” Can Find Work

The term being used for those that commit abuse against the public is ‘bad apples’…..it is a term used to try and separate the good from the bad…..

Just a quick reference point for my readers…..killings commited by the police since 2015…..

That is just the killings….does not include the other abuses commited by the police.

And there are those that worry that these ‘criminals’ would not be able to find gainful employment….(personally I say let them dig ditches or clean port-a-lets)……

But not to worry for if they are fired they fly under the radar and get work in another city so they can continue their abuses of the public.

Now it is not so covert….Florida has openly stated they will hire those fired for abuse of the public trust…..

A Florida police organization’s promise to hire any officers around the U.S. who are fired or who leave their jobs during the nationwide uprising over police brutality was decried by critics Tuesday as indicative of a toxic law enforcement community that rewards severe misconduct.

The Brevard County Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) posted two messages on Facebook Saturday urging officers in Buffalo, New York; Atlanta; and Minneapolis to consider finding new jobs in Florida where the union claimed they won’t have to face so-called “spineless leadership.”

Spineless Leadership?

So-called police unions are the spineless gutless traitors of the public trust.

If they were truly concerned they would be leading the dash for reforms and security for the public.

Please stop calling these cowards as a “union”…they are not concerned with the worker as they are protecting bad players from the law.

Plus the narrative that the police use to explain what has happened is steadily disproved…..

Minneapolis police initially told the public that George Floyd died after a “medical incident during a police interaction.” The Buffalo, New York, department said a protester “tripped and fell.” Philadelphia police alleged that a college student who suffered a serious head wound had assaulted an officer.

All three claims were quickly disproved by videos seen widely on the internet and television, fueling mistrust and embarrassing agencies that made misleading or incomplete statements that painted their actions in a far more favorable light.

Police departments deny lying but acknowledge sometimes making mistakes when releasing information in fast-moving, complicated situations. The videos, they say, do not always capture officers’ perspectives.

  1. I think these stats include all shootings which would include gun fights and exchanges. I think killing of unarmed by police shooting about two dozen a year, 2/3 white. Some of these were classified lawful, some not excusable and cops prosecuted. Number of cops killed by drive by or ambush has been increasing.

  2. That’s a strange offer from Florida, and has all the hallmarks of a decision they might regret. Worth noting Carl’s comment though.Most people shot dead by police in America are white, which is not something that gets a lot of publicity.
    Best wishes, Pete.
