A 1.2 square mile town needs a police chief?

According to the DHS the 7000 fully automagic rifles they bought are for personal defense

It's nice to finally get a little honesty from the police in the DPRC.

What amazes me most is not the stupid crap the comes out of the various orifices of the party members there, it's that the citizens aren't in open revolt. How stupid do you really have to be not to see the police there as a protection racket? Why continue to support the racket if you not only don't get protection from the criminals but also get shot at indiscriminately by the people who are "protecting" you from the criminals?

The police have firearms as "offensive weapons" according to the chief, but they require those weapons for "officer safety". What are the citizens permitted to use for "citizen safety"? Strong words? I guess police officers are a special class of people out there who are entitled to their "safety" (fictional concept, but apparently very real to them) and the use of their firearms to achieve that. If the police are more valuable than the people they're supposed to protect, then there's no more need for police protection.

On the matter of citizen safety, do the citizens need more protection from the police or the criminals, assuming there's a distinction between the two? If police officers are randomly shooting unarmed civilians for "officer safety" in the DPRC, then are the civilians guilty until proven innocent or dead? If citizens are completely disarmed because they can't be trusted with "offensive" weapons like a pistol, is there anything to stop the police from achieving complete "officer safety" by killing all the civilians?

I'm tired of hearing about "officer safety". If you're so concerned with protecting yourself then don't become a police officer, a job which virtually guarantees frequent and violent contact with the dregs of society.

If you want to be a police officer, a job nobody forced you to take, then have the decency to treat other people the way you want to be treated or don't expect too much sympathy from the people you're supposed to serve.

I'm sure nobody can tell, but I'm a little tired of all the nonsense arguments about the "special" people that the laws and standards of acceptable behavior don't seem to apply to.

Saw this video a few weeks ago and was just ashamed.

In deference to Robo's earlier post I'd like to change my earlier observation of "Cop from CA" to "Chief from CA.

I was especially digging on the Chiefs 1973 porn star mustache!

Anyone else think this schmuck looks like Ron Jeremy's cousin?

Tack
