  1. Charges

    Well , get with me when he’s incarcerated for his evil and tyrannical behavior
    Lately none of these scumbags go down
    And it’s because of all the other scumbags in that group of lawless badtards from the beat cop right up to the judge that hears his case
    Until it’s country wide that all these types are delt with appropriately , it becomes a waste of news print
    Until this bastard and his type are delt with properly it’s all just song and dance
    Many ways to say it , hope I’m understood

    Only when they’re wearing badges Attorney General RosenJew. Only when they’re wearing badges.

  3. “He can also have no direct physical conduct with suspects or inmates.”

    Direct physical conduct? As in not touching?

    Does that mean that shooting a suspect is still an option?
