I know there are two and maybe more Police Officers that post on this forum, I am dying to ask a "Police Officer Of Today" a question. I grew up on the streets of Cambridge during the thirties & forties, seven of the young men from my corner went on to become Cambridge Police Officers themselves. When we were growing up there were many times that "street justice" was handled right on the street, depending on the circumstance the Cops took care of it then and there with a good "slapping around", I have been beat up several times by the Cops, I deserved it, but I was never arrested, I now can thank those old time Beat Cops for the fact that I have no criminal record, they straigtened me out right on the spot. Now the question: I watch those High Speed Pursuits out in California and after fifty miles of over a 100 MPH speeds and nearly killing several Cops and civilians this maniac is finally stopped then he gets out of his car and still resists and fights. The Question, HOW IN THE NAME OF GOD DO YOU GUYS HOLD IN YOUR EMOTIONS, HOW DO YOU STOP YOURSELF FROM BREAKING EVERY BONE IN THIS RAT B@STARDS BODY. His Holiness, Rodney King was traveling 70-MPH down city streets if he had collided with a Family of five and killed them all (the police may very well of prevented this) if Rod ahd killed a family we never would of heard about it, but they caught him, when they tried to arrest him he fought, he was full of drugs, the Cops gave him a good old fashioned "thrashing". Rodney recieved Four Million Dollars, the Cops went to jail. (the new America) If they operated like that in my day there wouldnt ba a Cop left in the city of Cambridge, they would all be in Jail. I have to hand it to you guys today, how do you control yourselves. The thing that prompted this post is, another incident has happend after a chase, I was just watching it on TV, they got the guy, they got him out of the car, he fought them, one of the Cops punched him several times. THEY FIRED THE COP. AGAIN, HOW DO YOU DO IT?
