If a person in the private sector went to work one day, got belligerent with someone in another department, and then assaulted that person, they would not only be fired, but could also face jail time.

However, if you are in the public sector, like a police officer, you can be grossly negligent, abusive, and assault someone; instead of being fired or facing jail time, you can go on a paid vacation and keep your job.

Such was the case with Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Daniel Martin.

In 2009 Martin decided that it would be a good idea to pull over an ambulance for failing to yield to his squad car; never mind the fact that the ambulance had a sick woman in the back, bringing her to the hospital.

Advertisment

Martin became belligerent at the scene when the ambulance drivers wanted to continue on to the hospital and ended up assaulting and arresting driver Maurice White.

Charges were eventually dropped against White and Martin went on an all expense paid, tax payer funded vacation.

Now five years later, after never being fired for his grossly negligent and abusive behavior, Martin is unsurprisingly in trouble again.

A new complaint against Martin alleges that he showed an “inappropriate adult photo – not of himself – to a fellow trooper,” Captain George Brown, of the OHP, said in a news release.

The alleged incident took place in the first few days of the Cadet Lawman Academy, the release states.

“The incident was reported to Academy staff, who decided since Trooper Martin’s son was attending the academy, it would be best to release Trooper Martin from this special assignment. The finalization of the incident is pending,” Brown said.

Corruption and misconduct are seemingly commonplace within law enforcement. Cops in America, can murder a man on camera, and walk free.

As long as the tax-payers keep rolling over and keep apologizing for the ‘bad apples’ nothing will ever change. We are literally financing our own oppression.

It’s high time we demand change.

It’s time to imagine a post police world.

      That’s all you have to say is that I’m “retarded” because I misspelled one word, which I know how to spell but didn’t realize I spelled wrong lol?
      No intelligent rebuttal to prove me wrong or case right; nothing close just a childish and meaningless insult?
      I know you don’t have anything substantial or worthwhile to say because you would’ve came up with some better than what a 10 year old would say instead of an adult after 3 months. Blocked.

    Maybe, but it “felt”racist to me.

  • Virginia O’Mara

    You generalize too much. Try “Some cops” or even “most cops” but not “ALL cops”. Because it is never “ALL” in any argument.

    If my mom, wife or daughter was in the back of that ambulance, I would have told the ambulance to take off and I would have dealt with that officer myself.

    Bull Shit, only fighting back will stop this shit, don’t forget God didn’t show up during slavery don’t believe in that BS either!

  • LIEBERALDESTROYER

    Did you read the article? He stopped the Ambulance for failure to yield to his police car.If the Ambulance would have had it’s lights on this wouldn’t have happened. The cop has a power trip for sure. When the cop found out they had a sick women in the ambulance he should have let them go. Cop was wrong. Race is not an issue here. IMO.
