Patrick Cherry, a NYPD officer and member of the FBI's top-secret Joint Terrorism Task Forces, is Exhibit A of what is wrong with our nations police. This Uber driver committed the Class A felony of honking at Officer Cherry's unmarked
police car for not turning his blinker on before parking on a busy New York street.
This is what ensued.
I have to admit that I'm sick and tired of this crap. Police officers claim they just don't understand why the public doesn't trust them, but this officers behavior should provide them with enough evidence as to why the public has turned on them. Instead of protecting and serving 'the people' they are berating and mocking them for being born in another country.
Another thing that frustrates me is how every cop wants to claim this is just an isolated incident. They want us to believe that this is just a rogue cop who doesn't reflect the overall police force. I call bullshit. How many more 'isolated incidents' must we be subjected to before they finally admit there is a systemic, nationwide problem with our nations police forces? American citizens are not the enemy and we need to demand to stop being treated as such.
Police forces across the country are just trying to come to grips with the fact that every day Americans are finally starting to video tape their abhorrent and racist behavior and are still trying to figure out a way to explain it without turning everyone against them. They really don't like the fact that everyone has a video camera on their cell phones in today's age. Now all of their questionable actions are caught on tape and that doesn't make them happy. The court of public opinion is a hell of a lot more damning than a grand jury will ever be.
How many more instances of police abuse will have to be caught on camera before we can all admit that we have a problem in this country? Police officers, the people sworn to serve and protect us, are out of control and it's long past time we as a society begin to rein them in.
