Good point

If this cop was really sorry, he’d admit he did something wrong:

The widow of Eric Garner, the unarmed black man who died after being put in what officials called a police “chokehold,” Wednesday night angrily rejected a gesture from the officer that offered her his prayers and condolences.

“Hell no. The time for remorse would have been when my husband was yelling to breathe. That would have been time for him to show some type of remorse, or some type of care for another human being’s life,” Esaw Garner said at a news conference when asked about the condolences offered by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo after a grand jury earlier Wednesday declined to indict him for Eric Garner’s death on July 17.

“No I don’t accept his apology. No, I could care less about his condolences. He’s still working, he’s still getting a paycheck, he’s still feeding his kids. And my husband is six feet under, and I’m looking for a way to feed my kids now,” she said.

The Rev. Al Sharpton announced that a national march on Washington would be held Dec. 13 to demand more federal involvement in cases where police officers kill members of the community.

  1. There are 700 thousand cops in the US. A certain percentage of them are psychopaths. Is that number 1% or 5% or 10% or some higher percentage? Take the case in Cleveland where the cops rolled up on a 12 year old boy and within 1.8 seconds of arriving on the scene one of the cops shot the kid dead. Clearly this psychopath had decided to kill well before he got to his destination. There are thousands of cases of cops beating and sometimes even killing their spouses. Stress on the job doesn’t demand that you go home and kill your wife. Psychopathy does. We need to better test those who want to become cops. Then we need to demilitarize our police forces and make them more user friendly. Terrorists are not hiding behind every bush regardless of what the Right would have us believe.
