Police departments around the country consider frequent charges of resisting arrest a potential red flag, as some officers might add the charge to justify use of force. WNYC analyzed NYPD records and found 51,503 cases with resisting arrest charges since 2009. Just five percent of officers who made arrests during that period account for 40% of resisting arrest cases — and 15% account for almost 3/4 of such cases.
Of the five percent of officers that accounted for 40% of resisting arrest cases and we ask separately the 15% that account for almost 3/4 of such cases.
Next we divide the police into regular police, the 5% that make 40% of resisting arrest cases and then the 15 % of that number that account for 3/4 of all those cases then we ask some questions.
First question how often does resisting arrest turn into a police complaint for these 3 groups? How often does it turn into a lawsuit for these 3 groups? How often do the police lose these lawsuits when it involves a member of these three groups?
But time and again, suspects haven’t been safe around Sadowy. Records show he’s been accused of excessive force in multiple lawsuits during the six years he’s been making arrests. Yet he continues to make them. And it’s not just him.
WNYC easily found a dozen other cops who appear to use force more often than most and who have been the subject of numerous lawsuits.
How much do these lawsuits cost state and local governments? How much does insurance for these lawsuits cost state and local governments? Any police officer accused any kind violence
There is no way that 15% of 5% of the police force is the only police coverage for high crime areas so the police can’t claim they have cops stressed out and breaking down and shooting people.
What they have are cops who no matter where they are stationed the suburbs, the ghettoes etc they abuse people especially if they think they can get away with it. We need to identify what the cops have in common. If you have more than 2 complaints for violence let alone lawsuits then you should get scanned

New research shows that psychopathy appears to be linked to specific structural abnormalities in the brain.
also confirmed that psychopathy is a distinct sub-group of antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), said Nigel Blackwood, M.D., from the College’s Institute of Psychiatry and lead author of the study.
He noted that most violent crimes are committed by a small group of male offenders with ASPD, but only about a third of these men are true psychopaths (ASPD+P). Psychopaths are characterized by a lack of empathy and remorse, and use aggression in a planned way to secure what they want, whether it is status or money.
Psychopathy affects approximately 1 percent of the United States general population and 20 percent to 30 percent of the male and female U.S. prison population. – See more at: http://news.uchicago.edu/article/2013/04/24/psychopaths-are-not-neurally-equipped-have-concern-others#sthash.WF9DS9uV.dpuf
The first President Bush at least had the courage to go against his own party despite the public perception of him being a wimp ( Doonesbury Cartoon Bush was a Waffle ). and tried the cops in the Rodney King case on Federal Charges.
Something Obama so far has refused to do because he is to busy telling us we are a Nation of Laws and that we should not protest when cops shoot people and never even go to trial, how can you be a nation of laws without trials? I wonder if Jeb Bush would support Darren Wilson, Timothy Loehmann etc being tried by the Feds does Jeb have half the Stones of his Dad, Obama so far does not.
When the Red Coats shot an African American during the Boston Massacure the Red Coats went on trial were found guilty and several were branded despite the crowd throwing rocks at them before they shot into the crowd we actually revolted because the cops got off to light a sentence, we revolted because we felt oppressed.
But sadly today Darren Wilson can’t even go to trial because the Supreme Court says racism is over, Obama says we are a nation of laws, but Cuba which has much less people in jail per capita than we do, where the Life Expectancy for Afro Cubans is only 1 year less than Whites and more Afro Cubans graduate high school than White Cubans is an oppressive regime. Perhaps more African Americans would get jobs if the Government made sure that everyone got equal funding for education notice Obama and Campbell Brown don’t send their kids to Charter Schools or even public schools they send their kids to Private Schools even though public schools do a better job once income is factored in than Private Schools do teaching math. Reading is much more effected by parents reading to their kids and having books in the home than it is by school.
