Law enforcement as a career? Don't expect any thanks...ever.

Waitwaitwaitwait. Am I missing something? Since when do you order a tasing on someone for acting suicidal? Unless the person was threatening to take others with him or something, you get either a compassionate cop or a therapist over there. I've seen enough movies to know that's how it works.
Since the bleeding hearts said you couldn't shoot suicide risks dead with your pistol.
Arnisador killed a suicidal old lady with a taser, remember?

The guy tried to resolve an incident without trauma or violence, and he's a 20-year veteran with a clean record? I wonder if there isn't some circle-jerk PD politicking behind this dismissal, if only because the white suburbanite in me still doesn't want to think cops could WANT to be this cartoonishly vile.
Following protocol is dumb. I almost got fired once for letting an old lady in to buy a ticket when we shut down our facilities for a company party, which.. who has their parties in their own facilities? I know, failing arts organizations.. anyway I let her in out of the cold and rain, and she turned out donating a good chunk of money in her will to us. None of that mattered because I broke the rules according to the higher-ups.
infinite zest is a good egg.

Good Christ, I thought this was going to be The Onion.
I don't even have the energy for this shit right now.

Reality overtook parody years ago. I'm still amazed the Onion hasn't just closed their doors.
Finally watched it. It sounds like this is yet another case where we never get the truth. We at least need to know if the kid was armed, or hitting officers or something.
Context: University PD in California is usually where cities put the washout cops, but they're usually washouts because they have a bad record.
All that said, I believe that police department about 0%.

This is just what cops need, more incentive to tase people.

More from Lauren Seaver, please.
A 20 year veteran and this is his first disciplinary offense. TWENTY YEAR CLEAN RECORD, USES NON VIOLENT METHODS TO HELP A CIVILIAN AND THEY PUNISH HIM FOR IT!?!?!?
Fuck it, fuck this gay earth. Justice is a fairy tale. Cops are assholes because being a good cop means you get shit on and your career demolished. It all makes sense now.
It's not ALL doom and gloom. New Game of Thrones series is coming on in a few months.
Awesome! In a few months we can enjoy simulated cruelty and misery between the real thing!
yeah but there are some steamy sex scenes to pad it out. All my favourite characters bar 2 are dead however...
You know, I've been wondering what it takes for a cop to get fired and now I know.
