No cop is poor in California... none. If they say they are you should ask them what do they drive and where do they live.
Have you eveer seen a cop in California walk or take the city bus to work, or live in the hood outside of choice? Hell to the no.
Even if they work in a city where the median home value is through the roof, they are in close enough proximity to an area which is not. Now they may not like middle class, but poor that is not. Besides, poor by American standards really has no weight in comparison to poor in other places of the world.
If you can drive a new car, buy shit you don't need, own a home, have health insurance, a bit of savings, and eat like a fat American. I'd say you're doing pretty damn good for yourself.
That's just my opinion though.

I mean it's not an argument, but if a cop makes 54k (which I'm pretty sure that's a starting salary not including OT) a year in Philly, he doesn't have to live in Philly. But if the Median house price is 154k, he can still afford the mortgage on a middle class home.
I make more than that a year but not by much, I live in Florida where the median is slightly higher. I'm doing A-OK. I grew up poor and I can tell you how I'm living now, is not even remotely close to how things were growing up.

it's hard to judge someone without being in their shoes, but from what I understand (and I don't know much of the details), it seems like he was a total coward. the one time in his whole career that he was actually needed, he ran and hid like a little bitch. that being said, I don't think the taxpayers should have to foot the bill for the retirement of this loser.
Unfortunately housing have skyrocketed. Anywhere worth living is at least $300k.
^ ^ Sarcasm, dude... sarcasm.
Here's a similar case to the Minneapolis cop who just went bye-bye. I'd say this cop is screwed. She claims to have come home and entered the wrong apt after her shift and proceeded to smoke the resident after he didn't comply with her commands. Problem is there are NUMEROUS holes in her story plus sound evidence indicating otherwise. I/E- the apt doors automatically close and lock, she marked her apt with a bright red doormat outside the door, and when she called 9-1-1 she had to exit the unit to see where she was. She was also a proven hothead as well and was regularly making social media posts boasting of her heroic lifestyle. Considering there was public outcry over the Minneapolis shooting over "black cop vs. white victim," whereas this one is "white cop vs. black victim" she will be shown no mercy once the verdict is read... and IMO they got her dead to rights. After the Minneapolis verdict last week this broad's got to be shitting herself, and rightly so. She was also charged with some kind of mild resisting arrest, like "unprofessional conduct" or something.
Another disturbing aspect of both these cases is that the cops hastily secured warrants to search the victims' houses, both in Minneapolis and in Dallas in an attempt to smear the victims' name before the public. They did a similar stunt after the Autumn Steele shooting in 2015 so it's safe to say that this is common PD practice when cops murder people, be it intentionally or not.
