NY Police Union Boss Rages: 'Stop Treating Us Like Animals and Thugs, and Start Treating Us With Res

Source: Mediaite

The head of New York state’s Police Benevolent Association raged at a Tuesday press conference that the media and state legislators were “vilifying” police “like animals and thugs,” despite police interactions around the country being “overwhelmingly positive.”

Pressure. Now they know what it feels like to be on the other end. Clean up your house! no one expects cops to be perfect they are human beings. But the bad cops are really rotting all cops. Hospitals do not put up with a few bad surgeons or people die. Same with the police. Weed out the bad apples...all of them. Don't tolerate any. Surgeons have life and death in their hands. So do cops. If surgeons can't get away with being a bad surgeon then neither should a cop!

36. We will never see police reform until we deal with the unions.

I am not anti-union, far from it, but there can be bad unions too.

I would like to see all police union contracts voided and new ones negotiated as part of reform.

28. +3 being a cop just doesn't give you respect - respect is earned. Treat others like you want to be

treated.

This policeman and trump have to learn this moral lesson - a position of power doesn't just give you respect - respect is earned.

I bet no one else in the US has any idea what that feels like, especially when confronted by the police. How awful you must feel!

9. Next They'll Threaten To Stop Doing Their Job

Not showing up to the next crime or not being around when a politician (or their family) is being threatened. After all, how can they do their job if they are prohibited from using force?

As I've said elsewhere, this is another reason I don't like unions. Too often they are all about "having your back" even for those who don't deserve it. And often they look the other way when the offense is perpetrated against another less senior union member.

12. "Wah. don't treat us like we treat you"

Except, we haven't.

You want to pretend that tens or hundreds of thousands of demonstrators are "rioters" due to a few (often RW agitators), then be prepared to accept that all police will be kettled also, until you clean *your* house, Mr Non-Benevolent. Or should I say "Police Ben Violent Association"

Fuckers even talk like mobsters now. Every time the mask slips a little bit more.
We'll treat you with the respect you deserve, pigs. Stop acting like animals and thugs and you'll stop being vilified. Simple, no?

18. The bad ones HAVE to be stopped from just moving to another dept.

Same problem with teachers; bad ones move to a different school district.

If you have serious enough charges for ou to be fired from the force, then your certification should be taken away & you find another job doing something else

38. Said police union head should go fuck himself

 

I'm done tolerating this horseshit. These people need to go find different careers and those departments that are so hopelessly corrupt need to be broken up and new police services formed that are extremely selective about who they hire, especially those who worked for the previous department.
