Carlos Miller, Police, and the 1st Amendment

Carlos Miller has an interesting blog. If you're into photos, police, and/or the First Amendment, check it out here.

Hat tip to Popehat. Here is "Ken" pontificating below:

I’m grateful to cops, as a group. They do a frequently awful job under frequently abysmal conditions. That job is necessary to our safety. They deserve thanks for that — as do many other groups in our society. But I fall off the “hero” bus when people suggest that I owe individual cops respect no matter how they behave, and that I owe cops an obligation to look the other way when they ignore the rule of law, and that we ought to cut cops a break when they act like bullies any more than we would cut a break to a thug in an alley.

Can I get an "Amen"?
