It’s Past Time to Examine How Police Unions Protect Bad Cops
Maybe it’s finally time to consider the role that police unions play in perpetuating police brutality. Mayor de Blasio has frequently tangled with his city’s powerful unions, but he’s never challenged their vast political power. And make no mistake, that power is often used to cover up and deflect charges of police misconduct.

“The unions, at least in New York City, outright just protect, protect, protect the cops,” retired NYPD commander Corey Pegues wrote in his memoir, Once a Cop. “It’s a blanket system of covering up police officers.”

Writing in the Stanford Law Review, scholar Katherine Bies notes that ever since “the rise of police unions to political power in the 1970s,” they have succeeded in shielding their members from public accountability. “Police unions have established highly developed political machinery that exerts significant political and financial pressure on all three ...

And my brother-in-law, a Christian who (now retired) worked for a State Controller office, agrees, and points out that most of the dept's he audited were corrupt:
- Misusing funds
- Nepotism (even the TV show Blue Bloods depicts this)
- Not getting tickets for parking and traffic violations
- Demanding free meals from restaurants
- And threatening him for calling them on this.

They are not law enforcement, but tax-funded gangs (hence the tattoos).

I have unusual thoughts about policemen. Generally I have never liked them or respected them. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely is the way I view them. I had a family member who was a policeman and he actually told me they can pretty much do as they please and their fellow policemen will cover and support them.

But with that said, I know that we need them and I thank God that he has given us those who protect our lives and the lives of our loved ones. Whenever I come into contact with them, I treat them with extreme respect. And no, the police do not remove my individual responsibility to protect myself and my love ones. If they fail, then my 38 won't.

I cannot believe the impotence I have seen during these riots. It reminds me of the Rodney King riots so many years ago.

Tim is correct. The blame for bad policemen can be laid at the feet of the politicians who are supposed to lead them.

The mayor is ultimately responsible for what takes place on his or her watch. Minneapolis has had Democratic mayors for more than forty years. Don’t blame Trump. Blame Rybak, Hodges and Frey.

This article mentions 18 prior complaints about Chauvin's conduct, which is what I expected: the Floyd killing was part of a pattern of abuse that elicited no discipline. I see this lack of organizational accountability everywhere; it is a consequence of our general, catastrophic ethical collapse, not excluding churches.

I should add that unions, including those for police, were part of the leftist agenda early in the 20th century.
