Post Brutality

Why are so many police brutality posts deleted off metafiler? For sure, there are some fairly inflammatory ones that need-a-delete'n but perfectly reasonable ones are frequently deleted with nothing but claims that the discussion won't go anywhere. [more inside]

Who frightens you most: cops or robbers?

We've had a lot of police brutality threads lately, and those have gotten pretty heated. It might be good for each of us who are interested in talking about this to make it clear where we're coming from. hermitosis suggested a poll -- let's do that. Here's a quick and highly unscientific survey about how crime and law enforcement have affected each of us (I hope this is the right place to do this -- it's not really an askMeFi question).

Thank you to hard-working police cited in Mefi thread

In regards to this thread (about the Metro Toronto Police trying to catch a pedophile, for those who don't wish to click)...

I live in Toronto, and I'd like to send this unit something -- flowers, a card, I don't know -- to say "Hey, you guys do one of the worst jobs in the known universe, and we as a community would like to say thank you." I feel that maybe these people don't get a lot of thanks or recognition from us common folks.

I don't know what would be appropriate. So... this thread is for suggestions for:

1) Appropriate something to send
2) If anyone wants to help pay, which I'm not exactly asking for unless we come up with an idea that's more than about $40 CAD.

Help me find this thread

There was a thread a while ago (on the green I believe) about a mefi member who had a friend who was considering becoming a police officer. I've tried searching for the thread, but can't find it. Does anyone have a link for it?
