Re: Cop Beats Up on 15-year-old Girl
My kids are taught to respect everyone in authority. When they get older, we'll teach them how to properly respond if someone specific abuses that authority.
I should have noted in my previous post that I believe the badge should be respected even when a specific person wearing it goes out-of-bounds. Unless the entire force is corrupt and is violating the public trust, the badge is to be respected. If a wearer is abusing it, there are other ways to express your disapproval besides throwing stuff at them and calling them names.
