What Happens When You Try to File a Complaint Against a Police Officer

It's a little old (2017?) but pertinent now. About halfway through it and it is infuriating.

1. They should change where complaints against police are submitted. Having them go to the

Mayor's office seems like a better way to handle this. For all we know complaints just get torn up by police and thrown in the trash.

2. Good thinking. I agree with what you're proposing 100%. (N/T)

3. Yes complaints have to go to a completely independent body

This video proves police will do anything to avoid even taking a complaint. After watching, how can anyone trust them to take any action to investigate.

Itís also obvious that anyone who does complain should expect to be hassled, arrested, or assaulted by cops in retaliation.

4. Somewhere along the line, Police assumed too much power over citizens

Some, not all, police treat civilians as if they are above them, and can give whatever orders they like. It's not supposed to be that way. They work for us, and need to treat the citizens that pay their salaries with the respect we deserve. This needs to be a first step in reforming policing in this country. They won't like it, but that's too bad.

5. Echo

 





Too often the policing in this country has been left to mean, spiteful and powerful
sociopaths, we do the same thing with corporations and businesses.
Reset our goals and cut military expenditure for bigger and faster weapons should
be rerouted back into the care and stop sending our people to war for
acquisition.

6. Geroge Carlin said it best, its a big club and we are not in it.

Our rights have been slowly whittled away, no wonder the Republicans want a Dictator in the White House.
