Jennifer VanOpdorp's curator insight, March 28, 2014 1:24 PM

Another story about police using excessive force. This is completely unbelievable--the victim was jaywalking. JAYWALKING. So they shoved him into a truck and began punching him. This is one of the reasons I want to become a police officer, to 1. add one more officer to the force who isn't going to beat the crap out of people for no good reason and 2. to hopefully stop my colleagues from beating the crap out of people for no good reason. It's like, somebody has to police the police.

Brian Slack's curator insight, March 7, 2014 1:26 PM

I think that this oficer over reacted. he should've stayed calm cool and collected but i can see where he's coming from and how it might be annoying if people are always doing that.

Jennifer VanOpdorp's curator insight, March 28, 2014 1:19 PM

And THIS is why police need to be required to wear body cameras. This cop attacked this woman because she was recording the traffic stop with her phone. While attempting to get her phone from her, he gave her multiple bruises, scrapes and cuts. She is suing the sheriff's department. The article notes that the justice department has upheld citizens' rights to record interactions with police.

Jennifer VanOpdorp's curator insight, April 10, 2014 10:53 PM

The Sandiego Police Department has multitudes of sexual assault cases involving officers. It's gotten so bad that the department can't even begin to take care of the problem themselves and have needed to get an outside auditor to help with all the misconduct. This whole things is so ridiculous. I can't believe that police sexual assaults are so rampant.
