The Beaverton Police Department Sets An Example Once Again

What do you suppose would happen to you if you drove away from a gas station without paying? Suppose you had done this on numerous occasions? Better yet, if you go to work tomorrow and steal from your employer what would happen to you? And just for the sake of argument, what if you were caught siphoning gas from your neighbors vehicle? Well, if you are an officer with the Beaverton Police Department all that happens is that you get to quietly resign and have no charges filed against you for using a city issued gas card to pay for gas for your personal vehicles. Read the Oregonian story here---> "Beaverton officer resigns amid theft accusation"

Yes, the Beaverton Police Department, the same people who would gladly put the cuffs on and haul you away if you were caught stealing or embezzling. Those pillars of righteousness who protect and serve each and every one of us here in the fine city of Beaverton. Wow, they had an officer with questionable morals who knowingly broke the same laws he was sworn to uphold and they let him go quietly into that good night so that he can get a job elsewhere as a crooked cop. He'll probably end up serving with the Washington County Sheriff or Portland Police.

Sorry folks, I know that a lot of you are ignorant fucking conservatives who blindly worship the badge wearers and think all cops are perfect but I am outraged. It doesn't matter that this former Beaverton Police officer only stole gasoline and that it wasn't but a couple of hundred dollars worth. The point, the principle of it all is the fact that these scumbags are charged with protecting the public and if anyone, they should know better than to do anything illegal. And don't pretend that this is an isolated case, it was just a case of he got caught or it wasn't covered up properly.

I'll tell you what, I need a new DVD burner for my Mac. Can I walk in to Best Buy tomorrow and sneak one out without paying and then if I do get caught get to keep the DVD burner and not face any charges? Hell no. But hey, they are cops and they get to live by a different set of standards because they have a badge and gun.

The police have this thing called a 'union' which protects them from justice. Personally I don't think the police should be able to unionize.

The police are our friends, abuse = love, oppression = freedom.

"This thing called a union which protects them from justice"??? After having spent 25 years working with unions, including police unions, I can say unreservedly that unions obtain justice for their members, they don't protect them from it. Without unions, police would be at the whim of the latest political breeze to blow through town. And those breezes at least occasionally even blow through Beaverton.

I think we can all agree that unions are outdated and serve NO useful purpose other than to fatten the bank accounts of union officials and their members.

And it is quite comical and disturbing to equate unions with justice. How many people have died at the hands of union corruption.
