Cops are not everyone's friends

Chicagoan claims police beat him because he's gay :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Metro & Tri-State This is only the latest in a string of complaints against "Chicago's finest" (sic). They are all too often thugs in uniform. (And yes, I did live in Chicago at one point in my life.)

The Left says "call 911." The Left says "police are there to protect us." Are they? What happens when calling 911 just brings more of the people causing the problem?

I don't know what happened that night in Chicago. Neither do you (unless you are one of the 3 people involved). But not everyone can count on police for protection, (See Dr. Rice's thoughts on this) and some people view the police as a real threat. The sad thing is, that most cops are decent people, but the ones that are not, give the whole group problems. And the ratio isn't 99 good to 1 bad.... which is another problem.
