    13:25 I worked in LE and we do drills against knives. They are lethal up to 21 feet against an unprepaired shooter. The 21 foot rule is established in legal cases.

    "Nothing in Hillary's life has been more awkward [than Mary J. Blige singing to her]." Clearly you haven't seen the video of Hillary and Chelsea dancing with an African tribe, jumping up and down, when Hillary realized their titties were bouncing and Hillary looks at Chelsea and awkwardly pulls down on her hand to keep her from jumping.

    Spend any time in jail or prison and you'll see that it's much worse than you previously thought.

    No data, because there's no money in it AND the system doesn't care. Bloody shocking.

    There was a time when I actually enjoyed watching John Oliver. Sadly, he is directed by corporate media now.

    A lot of my friends from abroad are quite surprised how a good amount of Americans don't trust the police and how many of us arm ourselves and take it upon ourselves to protect our loved ones and community. I am shocked too, but we got to do what we got to do until the day the police can get their act together.

    At this point we can conclude being a cop is dangerous.
    Dangerous to the public and the society.

    People don’t understand how the police are suppose to conduct arrests, stops, and how they are tried. Especially because all police are bunched together and all conduct is assumed to either be misconduct, or completely ethical, making it hard to have an honest conversation. Because we live in an age where context and research is secondary to absolutes. If you want to have an informed information, look up terry v Ohio, graham v Connor, objective reasonableness, and the 4th/14nth amendment.
    Also please don’t comment because I have better things to do than argue with people who don’t even know my opinion and won’t look up these Supreme Court cases that are standards for use of force and stop and frisk.

    I don't know why anyone would want to live in the USA unless they have no other options. It's ironic that Trump names "shithole countries" when he's the leader of one of the biggest shithole countries!

    I'm a finn living in Finland where police behaves mostly and are prosecuted if not, but I still don't like police. BUT I like police much much more than private security. Unfortunately EU has decided that government spending has to be low and thusly police has stopped patrolling the streets and left it to private security companies. We still have trafic cops and detectives but that's it.
