What do you mean by "weak"?

Why is it "weak"?

Well, I have learned some things from this thread:

1. You are presumed guilty until proved innocent. Oh, wait, apparently, that only applies to the men and women who put their lives on the line every day for a populous that generally despises them and is in one way or another trying to defame them publically.

2. The tinfoil brigade can't even admit they are wrong, even when they are wrong.

Don't know anything about this case mentioned in the original post but I can say that Cookeville PD is full of a bunch if crooked SOB's.

Not my town, not my SD/PD, not my concern. Each man is responsible for his own actions...so long as they don't directly involve me. Same way I live my daily life. You do you and I'll do me. So long as what you do doesn't directly negatively affect me or mine..I don't care.

And why would I. Do you run and narc on every questionable action you observe or overhear by fellow officers? Or am I to assume that every officer you know and associate with is perfect and morally infallible?

Note: Rhetorical questions. I don't require an answer, nor do I care.

First, let me correct your assumption. I'm not the cop. I'm the father of a cop and the friend to many others in law enforcement.

Let me do this. Do you agree with this statement?
"There is someone in my department like Harless, but, his actions do not directly, negatively affect me or my family. What he does is what he does. What I do is what I do. I have no need to tell anyone about what he does. That's the way I live my life."
Does that accurately describe your position?

Next time they should turn the camera off and just shoot him. Camera was malfunctioning, and he charged the officers. Same end result, scumbag off the streets.. but without the mess of an embarrassing lawsuit.

How dare these lawyers and reporters question the motives and procedures of our heroic protectors while selfishly basking under the umbrella of protection they provide?

In most places on the interwebs, I would instantly recognize this post as sarcasm. Here, in Glocktalk world, I can't be quite so sure.
