Can we pit all of these awful people against each other? The Tea party is against tyranny and taxes. Why aren't we pitting them against our awful legal system?
Oh, right... there's a black person involved, nevermind.
The Tea Party is against white and rich people being expected to obey the laws and against white and rich people having to pay taxes.

Why were they demanding photos in the courthouse?
"arrest you for resisting arrest"
It's becoming a more common tactic by the day. Usually it consists of giving an order it's impossible to comply with (i.e telling you to pull your car over when your car is clearly blocked, often by another cop) and then arresting you for non-compliance, if not active resistance.
Yeah and both of you don't seem to get she's being arrested with a logical fallacy.
You cant resist arrest until you're being arrested, so you cant be arrested for resisting arrest (unless the cop can see the future or some Minority Report shit).
It may be possible to be arrested for something, resist arrest, have the original charges dropped but still be convicted of resisting arrest though.
Anyway, SolRo, no one with half a brain is saying "resisting arrest" is a valid thing for her to be charged with for the reasons you have stated so I'm not too sure what "both of you" are actually missing dude.
Fine, sorry for lumping you in with SPKs "dude, police make false arrests all the time" obviousness.
Sorry you had to be apologized to by SolRol "a wrongful arrest and false arrest are so different in a casual conversation I gotta start throwing yet another fit on the interwebs" and so on.
Grow up, Sol.

The guy breaking the law to take the pictures is already part of a civil suit where he pulled over a black cop who was off duty and started asking him about his "criminal record", then put him in a chokehold. Cops have basically become this legion of socially broken manbabies.
There ARE still good cops but this crooked cop bullshit the minority pull tars the others in suspicion off the bat. It really does no one any favours to act like this.
Basically cops should be far harder on each other than UNCONVICTED citizens.
The problem isn't the bad cops. The problem is the system that lets them get away with this shit, and the culture that embraces criminality in the police department. The good cops are as much a part of the problem as the bad cops are. And there's not much they can do about it without some systemic change either. If they speak out, the least of their worries is their ruined career. What happened to Serpico probably still happens, and we'd never fucking know about it. We we do know about is almost as bad - they had a guy committed for speaking out about the illegal quotas.
Every fucking cop that wasn't that guy was a part of the problem. We need to make it possible to prosecute police - against the department and the local prosecutors' consent. A prosecutor that prosecutes a cop successfully crosses the very people that they need good rapport with to do their jobs. That's not fair to them at all. We have to change the system so that the good people aren't so completely unprotected.

Cops who refuse to condemn and work to eliminate the actions of the so called "bad cops" are not good cops.
In principle you are correct but it's not as simple a choice as that when the whole culture is "protect our own". One of the worst things for a cop is to be untrustworthy to other cops when "lives are on the line" and all that.
Now you're getting it.
The only bad cops are the ones that aren't good. It's mainly because they are bad cops while good cops are good cops.
Also only black and white exist.
