Pittsburgh council passes police reform bill



Published: Wed, July 28, 2010 @ 11:15 a.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh City Council has passed a police reform bill after its sponsor agreed the legislation would no longer be named for an alleged victim of police brutality.

Eighteen-year-old Jordan Miles, a student at a performing arts high school in the city, has accused three white Pittsburgh police officers of beating him without reason Jan. 12. Miles, who is black, claims the officers assumed he was a troublemaker because of his race.

Councilman Ricky Burgess proposed his “Jordan Miles Public Safety Reform Agenda” to require video recorders in police cars and clarify when police must refer police misconduct allegations to an independent agency.

Burgess agreed to drop Miles’ name from the ordinance to get it passed Tuesday.

City and federal investigations of the incident are ongoing.

This is intolerable,..

Granted as idiotic as it is and individual and or individuals can harbor whatever dysfunction they like personally.

However, if you agree and or even as much as seek to a position where you're paid by general funds be they city, state or federal and you act on those prejudices.

Then I see you as a collective sum of the worst kind of thief, terrorist and threat to both local and national security.

For the vile acts you commit can and does create a volatile climate of hate and retaliation that no mere fellow habitat can compare to.

You'll have done it willfully and with deliberate malice and thus you're to be viewed as even a greater threat to national security. Than that of a foreign faction seeking to accomplish the same damn thing.

To wit I'm so resolute non wavering and non bias about that. That there's no position one can hold that I'll grant any immunity to.

If those individuals did that especially in the capacity of having breached and abused the trust, privilege and security of bearing arms in the guise of a cop.

They should meet a grim fate as a matter of displaying and upholding a national order of national defense.

If one can bear prejudice and act in such a malicious manner. They possess the untapped vulnerability to do anything to anybody to serve an unsavory agenda.

To include they add to the otherwise unwarranted distrust and disdain for honorable individuals. Whom merely wear the like uniform and yet aren't anything like the terrorist[s].

If all police are racists and not to be trusted, the next time we're in trouble,
should we call for help from Al Quaida instead?

Nunya, the article says "alleged victim of police brutality" and goes on to say "accused" police officers.

Where the police officers found guilty, or are you making an assumption?
