****Criminals are not being paid by our government to do what they do.
#Acutally in the case of Obama, Pelosi, Ried and Holder that is not true ###
***They don't represent the state. If they can be identified as having done something illegal, like shooting this boy, they go to jail.
##AND SO DOES THE OFFICER. Here is just a small list of the ones recently dismissed. www.google.com
****The outrage isn't there because violent criminals are punished.
### AND SO ARE OFFICERS. They are held to an higher standard than a civilian. Here are just a few more. www.mlive.com abc13.com philadelphia.cbslocal.com
***Police are paid by our government and are representatives of the state. They are typically protected when accused of a crime. Its the lack out accountability that angers people.****
## They are MORE accountable than a Criminal. Do you ever see a criminal losing thier criminal job because they did not do it right? This alone makes your analogy ludicrous.
As to St Louis County. It is controlled by an independent board "The St. Louis County Board of Police Commissioners is responsible for the operation of the department . The Board sets policy, makes promotions, holds both closed and open meetings and coordinates with the Chief of Police in providing police services to the citizens. Four of the five members of the board are selected by the County Executive, following approval of the County Council, with the County Executive serving as the sixth member.As provided in the St. Louis County Charter, the St. Louis County Police Department operates under the control of a civilian board of commissioners appointed by the County Executive with the approval of a majority of the County Council. "
So Police are held to higher standard. Supervised and report to civilian authority. They can lose thier jobs due to any number of issues. They are under MORE scrutiny. They have Internal affairs investigate them as well as the DA. In THIS case you have the PRESIDENT of the US weighing in questioning your decision, the AG of the US flying in to insure you are prosecuted for SOMETHING. You have the press making up a story and not checking the facts before releasing it INCLUDING where you live and who your family is. At least as a criminal it is prefaced with "ALLEGED" not so for the officer.
***If you can't understand these differences, you're an idiot. That is all there is to it. If you make arguments that fail to acknowledge these differences, you have no point. You're just very, very dumb for missing the obvious.***
###Ahh the personal attack. Say something that is an asinine comparison on face value and then threaten anyone to disagree.
