THE COPWATCH "BRASS BALLS" AWARD
Bestowed at varying intervals upon particularly execrable representatives of the "Justice System" who demonstrate utter contempt and disregard for the citizens they are sworn to serve. Note that brass shatters when struck by steel-toed boots.

News: SUICIDE BY CITIZEN
The antithesis of "Suicide by Cop" (an Orwellian public-relations phrase used by cops to cover the murder of "uncooperative" citizens), "SUICIDE BY CITIZEN" is a legitimate phenomenon ocurring with ever-increasing frequency. (Copyright 2003 Copwatch)
277 21 GC505, Navigatr1, Navigatr1
News: SUICIDE BY COP
The only valid application of this habitually misused term is to describe a scenario in which a cop kills HIMSELF. For a myriad of reasons, cops commit suicide at a rate higher than people in almost any other occupation.
158 59 GC505, Navigatr1, Navigatr1
News: KILLED BY COPS
Reckless, trigger-happy cops kill without reasonable justification on a regular basis, and innocent civilians are indiscriminately targeted. Unwarranted shootings, needless in-custody deaths, high-speed chases- cops are a murderous menace to society

News: FALLEN HEROES?
Noble figures standing tall against the evil forces of crime and chaos, police officers bravely uphold the timeless values of personal responsibility and adherence to the law? At least by popular definition, the death of an officer is tragic.

News: PROTESTS AND POLICE RIOTS

Lacking any honest basis for self-respect, cops often feel the need to dominate others in order to gain a sense of satisfaction. Thus a tremendous proportion of cops commit domestic violence.

According to the mainstream media, cops are "heroes" just for showing up to work. But there is nothing remotely heroic about 99% of cops. We deconstruct the undeserved adulatory coverage, and show that cops are generally the opposite of heroic.

LESS TEMPERATE DISCUSSIONS
THE ARENA
Moderator Duncan Philp is a vehement critic of the police. His attitude is viewed by some as refreshingly direct and by others as over-the-top. Regardless of your perspective, you cant argue with his results: he recently won $20k from the JSD.

Participants who violate the Forum rules (as described in the FAQ and Terms of Use) will be initially disciplined by confinement to this section of the forum for a length of time determined by the severity of the offense.
THE PEN
Some of our debates get a little heated, and the pro-cop partisans occasionally resort to name-calling and threats. When this occurs, they are temporarily quarantined in this section of the forum. A time-out, if you will.
