Policemen are not soldiers.

Who need to go the fuck to jail. Right now, together with anyone in the justice system (aside from their lawyers) who tries to protect them.

I think we discussed the no-knock warrant that resulted in a child being burned with a flashbang.

Here is that same story posted on a law enforcement forum:

No, dipshits, the parents didn't throw a flashbang on top of a playpen.

That was all you. You decided to break in. You decided to deploy a grenade. You made the decision to initiate the use of force. You burned a baby alive. You should be in jail for reckless endangerment and aggravated assault on a minor.

No knock warrants, at their most basic level, says that the lives of cops are more important than the lives of innocents.
