And who will guard us from our guardians?

In case you needed further proof that it is impossible to get rid of bad cops, here is a new report from Florida.

German Bosque’s personnel file looks more like a rap sheet than a résumé.

In two decades, the Opa-Locka Police Department opened 40 internal affairs cases on Bosque. Sixteen of them were for battery or excessive force.

Fired five times and arrested three, he was charged with stealing a car, trying to board an airplane with a loaded gun and driving with a suspended license.

Look, when your cops are stealing cars, you know something is horribly, horribly wrong.  Read on to see how wrong it really is.

This whole thing reminds me of the circular reasoning behind government power, even in an ostensibly liberal state.  Since it is so incredibly important that people’s freedoms are protected, people must surrender their freedoms to the government so that government representatives can protect them.  Much like police brutality, it simply doesn’t make any sense.
