I'd be curious to see "Diamond & Pearl's" take on this.
What is respectable about a "profession" who's whole function is to lie, cheat, steal, intimate and kill?
With impunity . . . .
To quote Scott Horton: Sovereign Immunity
So here's the big question when he makes this statement:What Federal policy is he going to shove down our throats to make us "respect" the police more?
*More* authority? They already have the authority to lie to you, to steal cash from you, to taze you, even to kill you, all without consequence or liability.
