No One is Above the Law: Especially Bad Cops - We Need to Support/Encourage Nobility!

A retired Los Angeles Police Sgt/activist commented on one of my threads, concerning her support of another abused good faith cop. For this past week or so, we've been promoting the issue of the manifest injustice concerning Buffalo career police officer Cariol Horne and the fact that she was beaten/fired and denied her pension - after

stopping a pale male cop choking a handcuffed AA male.

Though that bad cop (Kwiatkowski) was eventually forced out of the Buffalo police department (for other acts of racism and violence), Good Cop Cariol Horne is still being denied her pension (after being 19 years on the job and bad cop Kwiatkowski confessing that Horne did nothing wrong).

So it is good to see that other decent and noble police officers (Sgt. Dorsey) speak out in support of Officer Cariol Horne!

Officer Down – Officer Needs Assistance!


That’s a call over a police radio that causes every officer to perk up, reach to activate their vehicle’s red lights and siren, and start driving like mad men. Show me rolling “Code-3” in the direction of “downed” former Buffalo, New York, police officer Cariol Horne.

As an honorably retired 20-year veteran sergeant of the Los Angeles Police Department, I know first-hand exactly what it feels like to stand on the threshold of unemployment during the twilight of your career. Like Horne, I faced a similar circumstance during year 18 of my LAPD career.

In 2006,with 19 years on the Buffalo, New York, Police Department, Cariol Horne was terminated for trying to stop a fellow officer, Gregory Kwiatkowski, from choking a handcuffed suspect, Neal Mack. Horne did what most of us would expect by attempting to stop a partner officer from assaulting a handcuffed suspect. For her troubles, Horne was punched several times in the face by partner officer Kwiatkowski, an assault that required that her bridge be replaced.

Retired Los Angeles Police Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey (pic immediate above - from her LAProgressive blog) stipulates that she empathizes with New York Officer Cariol Horne because, she too, experienced the male white blue wall oppressive.

As Sgt Dorsey stated;

"I know first-hand exactly what it feels like to stand on the threshold of unemployment during the twilight of your career. Like Horne, I faced a similar circumstance during year 18 of my LAPD career"

[br]Retired Officer Dorsey is an activist against racism and has suffered much because of it. Being one who would not go quietly into that good night, retired Los Angeles Police Sgt. Dorsey wrote a book titled;

[center]"Black & Blue".
Creation of a Manifesto[/center]

In it she quips:

[font size=4][center]Because I did not bleed blue,
I had to adapt to navigate the sexist,
racist LAPD waters all around me for the next 19 years.
I had to learn to turtle up.[/center][/font]

We need to eagerly support noble efforts and discourage the bad faith acts. Instead, as is usual within powerful systems, the good people are ostracized and the bad cops are being labeled heroes.

While the NY boys in blue are turning their backs on their mayor and U.S., we should be forcing them to turn their backs on innocent citizens and punishing their arrogance!

It is a travesty of justice and a burden upon the citizenry that good cops must suffer much, simply because they desire to be good; and that bad cops are permitted tyrannical reign, while openly engaging in insubordination (clearly a politico effort to quell the wrath/rage of the public for the fact that cops are illegally choking misdemeanor offenders to death - without being held culpable).
