How are three cops executing an unarmed man in the street for throwing some rocks at their cruiser good guys in any way, shape, or form? Shit like that is insane. How can you expect anything but anti-police remarks and attitudes with stuff like this going on. And it is going on, far too much these days. And it's been going on forever . And 99% of the time those cops get away with it. When the police actually start policing their own and start holding their own accountable and being held accountable then you'll see public perception change, but not until then. Most cops I've met seem to have this attitude they're owed something. No one is forcing you to do the job. Don't like it? Quit and go do something else. You don't get any special treatment as far as I'm concerned. If anything you should be held to an even more exacting standard. If not, to hell with it, fire all the cops and let us all carry guns instead.

Has nothing to do with admission or hiring. It has to do with training. It is sad to me that people that would be, or are great cops, get very sub standard training.

I and many of my partners have been in situations where we had every right to pull the trigger and we didn't.

Whats the diff? Training, preparation, repetition, reinforcement, review, and more training.

What I don't get, is why there isn't some sort of federal code of conduct for Law Enforcement?

Goes by State. Here in MN it is the POST BOARD, they hold my license.

Makes me sad to see anti police remarks. We are fighting a war on the street. Anyone who thinks different lives in a bubble. I don't even work in Minneapolis, but all of the bad guys live where I work. That being said, I know and meet a lot of really good people everyday - but the majority of my interaction with the public is fielding calls and dealing with bad guys.

Shoot an unarmed man in a busy intersection? Nothing.

That's an execution plain and simple. Second degree murder for sure. Three cops gunning down an unarmned man? Couple that with this moron in this article and it's time to really tighten up on standards for police admissions all around.

At least in Toronto that pig who murdered the kid on the streetcar has been charged with murder. How that actually pans out we'll see. Police have become far too paramilitary, combative, secretive, and hostile. And the spending is out of control. It's another major issue in the GTA. It's long past due to inject some sanity back into this picture.

With video camera's on every cell phone, why aren't police also being punished accordingly?

Yeah, well, "I get paid to kill N-words like you" seems like a really good reason to fire a cop.

Of course, so does killing someone, but at least I get why they don't penalize that too hard - not only is it a function of their job (whereas yelling in CoD isn't) but there's fear that if you penalize cops too hard for using a gun where someone may think a gun is ok will have them second guess too long when one is definitely needed.

For the record, I firmly disagree with that logic - police are too gun happy right now and their job is to protect the public before themselves, and if someone isn't armed they're part of that public, but I at least understand why the police are more hesitant to punish that. Just think it's the wrong call.
