    Sure some cops may not be up to the Job, but at least they tried? Which is more than I can say for myself? I tried to defend in war and failed.

    Ya know sometimes I wonder about that. But we need judges here on earth. Let them be great people of the earth. Elected officials?

    All of this is true so it seems to me they would be doing their best to have friends in the communities they serve rather than making enemies.
    Maybe they should try to be the bigger man rather than the strongman.

    Absolutely not. But words can harm. So we need judges there too, don't you think?

    So every time you need to make a judgement call regarding another person’s character, or before you can discipline an employee or disagree with someone online...you call a judge? LOL.

    The US constitution gives you the right to say hurtful words to a police officer. Hurtful words are not a crime. That’s why many in the GOP were free to say racist and hurtful things about President Obama without any of them being arrested.

    Interesting that you used the word hurtful. Is that how we reward our public servants? That doesn't sound christian really.

    I meant to say harmful based on the language used by others in previous posts, but I think hurtful is actually a better term than harmful; harmful could mean physical harm, which should not be protected under the law. However, saying something that hurts the feeling of agents or members of government is completely fine. It may speak less of your character, but low moral character is not a crime. I mean, look at the current president; he is lacking in many moral areas, but that is not criminal, else a lying adulterer would be in prison right now.

    It's not though. Defamation requires you be spreading false information that harms someones reputation. Sharing your opinion of someone will never be defamation.

    Is it Christian to abuse ones power because your feelings are hurt?

    I see your point. Thanks for clarifying. Disrespect of elders and authority is irresponsible in my opinion.

    No, of course not. So then neither is being christian in your opinion?

    Your argument poses a false dichotomy that is, frankly, lazy and asinine. In your world, there is either anarchy or police given carte blanche - there is no responsibility or accountability. There is no holding to a higher standard government officials entrusted with a vast amount of power and discretion. There is only complaining about how hard their job is and excusing their bad behavior. Your kind of attitude hurts both cops and civilians.

    Is there another video? Perhaps one longer than 9 secs and shows the entire incident beginning to end?
