Lol, so many bullshit "facts" people make up and post on here.

  • There are cameras and they are always on. Always.
  • The cameras that monitor the general areas outside cells and halls are different from cameras that monitor in the cells.
  • The cameras that monitor inside cells are typically monitored by a civilian working at the police station and are recorded and documented 24/7

Having worked for police previously (as a civilian contractor) I can tell you that there is a lot more accountability, and a lot less "blue line" privilege than people think there is. They are still people and they will still report each other to get advancement etc. and all the other shitty things people do in normal workplaces.

It's not like some giant brotherhood conspiracy out to kill civilians and protect each other 100%, people inside "the force" bicker and hate each other just as much as you hate sandy the temp who fucks up the mail all the time too.

Are you one of those DoD guys getting paid to defend cops in online forums? Someone who was working against police brutality died while on police custody, don't you think cops should be extra careful when handling people like them?

No, I'm just a normal, rational thinking person who doesn't jump to conclusions over knee-jerk reactionary "news" published as editorials from a left wing website.

I think police are obligated to do their duty and that includes protecting prisoners, which obviously didn't happen in this case. I also believe in the system of law and that those responsible for whatever actions were taken or not taken will be held accountable.

I think nobody should be given special privilege on how they are "handled", you have unalienable rights and that is spread across equally, you shouldn't be "more equal" than others because you happen to enjoy bleating about "oppression" and "the man" on Twitter and Facebook. Everyone is the same and gets the same rights, period.
