I'm glad these thugs got caught,
but I wonder how this could happen?
Don't they have recorded cameras, etc?

Cue the "I support my police" comments. Especially when they're arresting nurses for doing their jobs.

Makes a person wonder just how widespread corruption is in our country's police forces.

Time for some house cleaning.

First thing I thought of was the Stanford Prison Experiment, Philip Zimbardo 1971.

I do support our police, why wouldn't you. These bad apples were caught, put in jail, seems like the system worked.

I support the Pleasanton Police department when I speak and when I write.
I support the Pleasanton Police officers Association with my money.
I identify myself in all of those instances.
Anonymous criticizers have no credibility!
Anonymous posters may well have an out standing warrant for their arrest.
I report all criminal behavior I encounter to the police department.
I have great personal pleasure when I am a contributing factor in someone's arrest!

Your post, Michael, is very odd; it is not about you. I support law enforcement as well, but I don't support bad enforcement by the law. I put my faith into the investigation and the judicial system to determine the truth in this matter. I will leave it as that.

Michael your a idiot. Better watch your back if these people you report find out who you really are.

The Pleasanton Police Department has my Back!

These people know who I "really are".

I am proud fulfilling my civic duty which includes reporting and identifying criminals, testifying in a court of law and also serving as a juror in a court of law.
