    I absolutely hate law enforcement! They are rude, violent, racist, and dumb! They also cuss too much! I believe law enforcement should be disarmed. There is no place in law enforcement for mean people! I view the American police force as violent brutes. I won't stop until American society is civilized! America is too brutal of an society to be called a First World nation!

    Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel. What would you replace the Rule of Law with? I don't believe there has ever been a true society without laws and the means to enforce them. You say you won't stop, stop what, hateing??

    Fortunately for Lib344 we have well armed and well trained law enforcement in this country. They even help protect Lib344's free speech when he wants to complain about them. They'd even come to his aid if he needed it.

    Maybe he thinks if police puts down their guns, the criminals would do the same?

    There's probably some history between the police and Lib344. Maybe he got a speeding ticket today?

    Lib344 won't stop just like OJ is still looking for the "real killer". And for that we can all rest easy!

    The problem is most law enforcement personel came from the armed forces here; they have enormous problems to communicate with people from a civil society due to their background. On the other side they have to be tough when things get out of hand; do not forget present day crimes are brutal, so in many cases they have no choice. However when you get a traffic ticket they should be polite and not have a rude military attitude. Compared to Europe indeed they have no manners.

    If you take a look at the continuing corruption cases coming out of the LAPD and LASD over the last 20 years....this isn't a fluke. These departments are saturated with corrupt cops.

    ..."law enforcement should be disarmed"... Sure they should!

    Let the American voters decide, let's put it to a vote, I think I know which way that landslide vote would go.

    About 99% to 1%.

    Anyone want to make any different predictions?

    Not disarmed.....but really looked at when hiring....All that is needed is a high school diploma, age 21, and a clean record...

    LA I agree with what you say, they should absolutely be screened carefully. Maybe more carefully than at present time.

    But the idea that ..."law enforcement should be disarmed"... is completely unrealistic and we all know it.

    Be able to tie their shoe laces and write a readable traffic ticket as well learn to smile (not smirk) and have no hamburger or ketchup smears on their uniforms and have learned to eat with a fork and knife as well learned to park their cars properly.

    Every high school friend that joined LAPD all agreed that they were "hooked " on the action. Criminals run the streets for this very reason. Most well rounded college educated kids won't join the department. these guys graduate, join the service, and then the police department...

    Police also display a gang like mentality......This was the problem the FBI found when the LAPD CRASH unit ran amok. I grew up with 5 of them. I couldn't believe that they were initially accepted into the academy.

    There's an alternative...............anarchy. Be careful for what you ask for. Law enforcement (Police) is the best option. Although, I am of the belief that more police is required and I want cameras everywhere to record all events. I want all money transactions reviewed for criminal activity. I want more police to watch the police so as to stop those in law enforcement who believe they are above the law. I do ask for a lot, but our society is riddled with the beginnings of anarchy, so anything to diminish law enforcement will only increase the activity of criminals that have their true calling of preying on the weak and the defenseless. If you think your guns and ammo cache is going to keep them away, you are foolish to think that way. The gangs and groups roaming America know how to make their presence known so as to keep rivals away, such as protecting their turf. If you want them in charge, you will be paying expensive protection fees.

    Yes, law enforcement is the better of any other option that would include anarchy. I believe you don't like law enforcement because you have had personnel confrontations with them. If you live a life committing crime and just being around crime only serves you with being under the gaze of authorities. Try looking in the mirror and asking yourself what can I do to better myself? Most people are smart enough to answer that question. Sooner or later people who live a life of crime will end up in prison or dead. It's just one of those good bets that paying for crime will eventually find you out.

    Support your local, state and federal law enforcement. It is a our benefit to keep law enforcement funded and supported.

    Unfortunately, as long as law enforcement depends on your social position and wealth (as it does in the USA) people tend to have no faith in being treated fairly by the police or the legal system.

    Social position and wealth!! You got to be kidding!!, here in Philly, the latest census of the Philly PD is 33% are African-American, whites are near 45% and the rest are either Hispanics around 14%, and the rest are the new group other, also I can damn near guarantee that more than 90% of them did not get the job because of their social position and or wealth, what an ridiculous statement to make.

    I'm not talking about the police JC, I'm talking about those that get involved with the police. In many cases a white male from a "good family" can get away with murder while a poor back goes to prison.
