A Missouri highway patrol officer who criticized the department after a handcuffed man fell into water and drowned has been more harshly punished than the officer who failed to secure a life vest on the deceased man.A 20 year-old guy named Brandon Ellignton was arrested for suspicion of boating while drunk, handcuffed and another officer did a half-assed job of securing a life vest on him. He managed to fall into the water and drown.
That officer was an experience road cop but had been on the water police unit about 2 days.
So.... cops are A-OK when they are blasting innocent people into the next life, but if one of them says "I think there's a problem here related to safety" send him to the psych ward for evaluation.
So there's not just a huge problem with bad cops - the whole cop system is corrupt, compromised, and often criminal.
The entire police system is built on and invested in getting away with lameness, incompetence and outright murder.
