Broke Ass Stuart: The Vallejo Police Department Is Corrupt, And Why You Should Care.

If we are what we proclaim to be, how did we allow a city that sits just 30 miles from San Francisco to become a killing field for one of the most violent police departments in the country? And why did it take articles in every major publication in the United States and a fucking Vice documentary for activists in other Bay Area cities to care?

“My sergeant, after my first officer-involved shooting, said wouldn’t it be nice if you could look around and see a visual indicator of people you can trust in a moment of chaos? And then he took my badge, and he bent it,” Joshua Coleman, a former officer who worked at the department for ten years, told VICE News.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
