Quote:Where's the outrage?


Anyone want to see some police officers prosecuted and hanged for about 70 police-related deaths a year?

I'm all for justice and accountability, but you're being disingenuous if you're suggesting that all of those people we're murdered in cold blood by the police.

and yet, from the statement you just made, you are clearly defending with the police. it seems as far as you are concerned, some lives matter and some dont

Quote:"there have been no successful criminal prosecutions."

Where's the outrage?

the police seem to be untouchable and get away with most everything.

Can you give an example with a parallel example involving a civilian to demonstrate the unequal treatment?

Quote:you dont become a top politician if you are not willing to kill
What a crass comment.


dont be so naive. our government along with the USA start wars under false pretenses, causing thousands of deaths. they are still bombing civilians in Syria. how many politicians have resigned in disgust. WAKE UP and stop listening to the drivel spouted by the bbc and sky

In the context of the OP, your comment "you dont become a top politician if you are not willing to kill" remains crass.


The legitimacy of the invasion of Iraq/Afghanistan is a different matter so please don't insult my intelligence by thinking I am unaware of the issues surrounding them over the intervening 10 years.

Quote:Shouldn't the do-gooder, hand-wringing, intellectual brigade give serious thought to reintroducing the death penalty for crimes such as these? And while they're at it, the reintroduction of corporal punishment into schools? I'm no Tory but cannot help agreeing with Norman Tebbit's comments -

The death penalty is not a deterrent in countries that still use it I'm afraid. I disagree with bringing it back for the police only as why should they be any different to other people who are murdered?

Ken

are murdered?
Too bloody true, all convicted murderers should face the death penalty, If they get life what does it cost to keep the b**/--ds behind bars

What? Because I disagreed with deaths in custody being likened to cold-blooded murder?

so what are you saying, losing a loved one who was in custody isnt as bad as losing someone to a cold blooded murderer. tell that to the parents, family etc. the police are supposed to be trustworthy, but we now know that is complete crap, from recent stories in the press. they commit crimes, lie, falsify evidence to save their own arses. And they are never convicted. Look at the Ian Tomlinson case. that corrupt b**** was freed. Tell me what would have happened if It was the cop who was hit with a baton and then pushed to the ground and died. The police arent above the law and must be prosecuted the same as any one else.

From the American experience, the death penalty is horifically expensive, one of the reasons some states don't do it - they can spend the money on actual crime prevention.

In the Tomlinson case, was the jury misled into a "not guilty" verdict?

Does the "system" see the folk who are killed by the police or in custody as being worthless and unworthy of protection?

The PC involved in Ian Tomlinson's death was tried like anyone else. The prosecution failed to show he was responsible for Mr Tomlinson's death, again like other cases which make high-profile headlines. So I fail to understand the claim that the police are treated any differently...
