Jul 9 Richard Wells commented on Mayor on Police Union and Reform: "It's a Struggle.".
As far as I know, SPOG is not a union. As far as I can tell, Officers Guilds are notoriously reactionary. They seem to exist in order to keep the rotten apples in the barrel.

About that "credit" thing. When I was offered my first sous-chef position the chef informed me that I would have many opportunities to run the kitchen, but it should never appear that he hadn't prepped, prepared, plated, and possibly served everything that went out. It was particularly humorous when he'd spend the entire night in front of the house schmoozing away and collecting the "compliments to the chef," with a delighted "Merci bien, merci." In the meantime I was learning and practicing an art/craft, collecting a paycheck, eating well, drinking good wine, and enjoying other percs. I figured it was just the nature of the biz. (And, anyone who knew anything about restaurants knew what the story was.)

People are posting that the other cops seem "chill," or "fine." If none of the other cops intervened, then they're as screwed up as the one with the spray.

Jim and Ed, close, man - like brothers. They will be missed.

PS: As I recall, in a Though the Looking Glass sort of twist, conspirators could be guilty even if they didn't know who their fellows were.

Remember the conspiracy laws of the 60's and 70's? Two or more people agree to commit a crime in the future. As far as I know they're still on the books. This seems to extend it into the info-age.
