  1. comment I left at the site:

    Isn’t it funny how police brutality only becomes a problem when it’s a cop’s kid on the wrong end of the baton or the taser? Here’s a question: how many people has deputy sherriff DeHerrera beaten up for “resisting arrest”? I’ll bet it’s more than one.

    Here’s another question: how many times in the past has Deputy sherriff DeHerrera complained about incidents of police brutality in any police district, including his own? I’ll bet the answer is ZERO.

    The fact of the matter is that police behave brutally every. single. day. Furthermore, the police will excuse and defend that behavior, or lie and cover up for their colleagues, UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO THEM. Then, all of a sudden, it’s a crisis that needs to be addressed.

    It’s really too bad that most police are unwilling or unable to imagine what it’s like on the wrong end of the clenched fist or steel-toed boot. That’s because most cops are thugs.

    Deputy Sherriff Deherrera is lucky they didn’t plant drugs on his son. That’s another trick the cops like to play.

    while i certainly feel badly for deHerrerra’s kid, I have no sympathy for his dad: he knows what cops are like. He’s one himself, and I would be willing to bet a substantial sum that the sad-eyed deputy has dished out more than his share of “deep bruises, chipped teeth, black eyes and [heads] left swollen and lopsided.

    That is what the police do. they don’t feel they’ve done their job unless they’ve deliberately hurt someone. there are very few good cops.

  2. You know what? I have to agree with brendancalling—“there are very few good cops”—-because my brother was a Detroit cop back in the 70’s when Detroit was the “murder capital of the country”. He ended up staying on the force for 32 years, but I know that he Saw. It. All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!……….during those 32 years. Even though he even threatened to throw me —-his own brother—–in the joint for smoking a little weed, I know he was much more threatening to folks on the street. Stuff happened that—-even now—he won’t talk about. Yep, police work is tough work for anyone—probably more so these days—– but if you can’t do the job right, then get into another line of work before you kill someone.

  3. Still, his son did nothing to deserve what happened to him, and now the father’s eyes are opened. Let’s get off this christian thing of the sins of the father, and get back to compassion.
