    I guess there's not much shakedown money hookers and drug addicts to pinch in Podunk Minnesota.
    in at least one other town(s) where this has happened, crime actually *dropped*.

    What I really came to post is this fucking bullshit. I have *some* sympathy for individual leos but I fucking hate cop unions that unilaterally defend racist corrupt cops AND THEN pull this shit:

    Not sure why you need a dedicated police force in a town of 1200. Our little town has triple that and it contracts with the county.

    Same thing happened to the death rate when California doctors went on strike over malparactice insurance premiums in the 70s.

    they donít - and they are now contracting to the county sheriff - itís a small town in farm country, in a county where not much happens. DWI/drug possession/small theft. But they have pride attached to their independent identity.

    aside: because cops suck, contracting out policing can be a boondoggle. When I worked early shift used to drive by the sheriffs who were billing my town as they napped in their patrol car.

    We have this a lot in my province in Canada. The national police force has contracts with a lot of towns/cities and provide officers for that area.

    Complaints of overpaying/underpolicing are pretty common, we have a couple of island communities (only accessible by ferry which shuts down at 10 PM) without a police presence at all.

    This summer they had an incident where the local drug house was burnt down and the occupants were sent back to the mainland by a group of locals.

    Far from the worst thing the cops have ever done but pack of about 8 cops on the running path in the park, wall to wall, forcing all oncomers off the path.

    It became pretty clear to everyone during the OCCUPY events who the police really work for.

    Cynic in me says this was a lynching. Can't have black people found wrongfully convicted and released. It seems like too much of a coincidence.

    Did you watch the vid? My take is that the man was too psychologically scarred from his past to rationally deal with the situation but still doesnít excuse his actions. If he didnít lunge at the cop and start chocking him out heís still alive today.
