Man Choked, Arrested at Occupy San Diego

PART 2.............. Consistent and wise use of discretion, based on professional policing competence, will do much to preserve good relationships and retain the confidence of the public. There can be difficulty in choosing between conflicting courses of action. It is important to remember that a timely word of advice which may be correct in appropriate circumstances, rather than arrest, can be a more effective means of achieving a desired end. Use of Force: A police officer will never employ unnecessary force or violence, and will use only such force in the discharge of duty as is reasonable in all circumstances. While the use of force is occasionally unavoidable, every police officer will refrain from applying the unnecessary infliction of pain or suffering and will never engage in cruel, degrading, or inhuman treatment of any person. Confidentiality: Whatever a police officer sees, hears, or learns of, which is of a confidential nature, will be kept secret unless the performance of duty or legal provision requires otherwise. Members of the public have a right to security and privacy, and information obtained about them must not be improperly divulged. Integrity: A police officer will not engage in acts of corruption or bribery, nor will an officer condone such acts by other police officers. The public demands that the integrity of police officers be above reproach. Police officers must, therefore, avoid any conduct that might compromise integrity and thus undercut the public confidence in a law enforcement agency. Officers will refuse to accept any gifts, presents, subscription, favors, gratuities, or promises that could be interpreted as seeking to cause the officer to refrain from performing official responsibilities honestly and within the law. Police officers must not receive private or special advantage from their official duty. Respect from the public cannot be bought; it can only be earned and cultivated. The YOUNG men that are sent to fight a real war one were innocent blood is shed for the freedom of YOUR every day LIFE is done with more courage than those of you seen in videos will ever have. When a Veteran ASK YOU TO COMPLY with the US LAWS and you are under oath of the above mentioned.....YOU MR OFFICER.... are the one that should say "YES SIR" You owe them.. You owe US!!
