Quote of the day

"I have stood by the officers since Day One, and I will not waver from that position because they have done nothing wrong." -- Denver police union president Nick Rogers, explaining that beating senseless random people on the street then lying about it under oath is just expected police behavior, and it's thus wrong to punish cops for doing it.

  1. To paraphrase Ol' Tricky Dick, if the police officer does it, that means that it is not illegal.

    Simple enuff.


  2. Forgot the link.

    Premature epostulation.


  3. Y'know, if cops don't want to be seen as jackbooted thugs in service of a police state, they need to quit saying stuff like that.

    Of course, it may be that they DO want to be seen as jackbooted thugs in service of a police state, in which case, Mr. Nick Rogers, U R doin' it rite!
