Lam, I agree 100%. I try to see the good in what they do and i understand that they deal with issues none of us want to ever deal with but it seems that there is a lot of abuse. I wish I had an answer on how to fix it but I don't. I have witnessed first hand they abuse of power by some of the sheriff's dept and or kills me. My little brother was a victim and that hurts. My grandfather was the chief of the aero squadron of the same dept that abused my little brother and I am sorry to say that I lost virtually all respect for law enforcement. Making it harder is that I have three children that I need to teach that the sheriff's are the good guys but how do I do that after seeing what my little brother went through and seeing the Justice system fail? Making it worse is that the officer has a history of this abuse and has gotten away with this behavior. The judge was even upset that they found the officer innocent after all the evidence and told my brother and his lawyer to appeal this. Which is still pending. He spent 3 months in prison and will never be the same. I know we will never have all the details as he lost almost all memory of that night as a result of the injuries but it is blatantly Apparent that the"cop" was in the wrong. This was in southern California almost 2 years ago. As I have mentioned before, I wish i could blame this on him for being stupid but I can't as I know my brother, his attitude and how this is a crock of $h!t. He isn't after monetary gain, only justice to this ass hole. Even with that he prays that this will not happen to anyone else and holds no grudge. I don't have his strength in this matter and neither do my other brothers. He is the youngest of us and while yes he is more outgoing this was dead wrong. He almost died that night. Anyone here can defend the cops but having the inside knowledge of this incident, while based as it may be, this was wrong. The cops are supposed to protect and serve. Not be the bad guys here.
