POLICE: Criminal justice system is a joke

A 12-year-old calls police because a drug user with a gun is in his house beating his mom. Two cops are now on trial because they took the gun from the convicted felon and arrested him.

Surprise, surprise: The felon walks fee and the cops are now on trial. I guess that’s why it’s called “criminal justice”; the criminals get all the justice.

What a joke our system is! I have to ask myself why anyone would want to be a cop in our state. The deck is obviously stacked for the criminals.
