Police officers are a protected class in america. Not only are rarely prosecuted for criminal activities, but when they ARE brought to trial their crimes are hidden by fanciful charges. Rape becomes 'abuse under color of authority', assault becomes 'unbecoming conduct, murder becomes 'self-defense'. . .when cops commit crimes, cops should go to jail. Make THAT a mandatory minimum sentence!

we need someone like Justice in every state..I live in MD and the police here are the same way..turning on their overhead lights just to go under red light and then turn them off. They never mind the speed limit signs, never stop completely at the stop signs, and they speed up at yellow lights instead of slow down..i am sure that this happens just about everywhere..so i say..thank you justice..one piece of the world at a time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 10:57, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Justice is a Moron, with a capital M
Why doesn't anyone understand that the police ARE a protected group. They have different special penalties if you harm one compared to a random person. They do get to break the law within the confines of enforcing it. How are you going to catch a speeder or a hit-and-run without GOING OVER THE SPEED LIMIT. How are you going to write a ticket to a parked vehicle if there is no place to park and you have to either DOUBLE PARK or PARK IN FRONT OF A FIRE HYDRANT. They are protected, deal with it. They should be, they are the ones that will be stopping that guy about to shoot you because you were a douchebag and thought you could get away with it. You want the protection? Drag your fatass to the academy and earn it. RTM —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:32, 10 August 2008 (UTC) You are a SUPER MORON with a capital S and P. Jimmy Justice is talking about any officers parking their city vehicles blocking a fire hydrant to eat in restaurant and like violations. So it okay with you to block a fire hydrant to go eat???? You need mental help!!!!!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs)
Time to fix things
I don't know how to fix a problem as fluid as this one. There will always be some form of corruption, all we can do is minimize it. The only real thing we can do is change the attitude and put more emphasis on proffessionality in the workplace, but in the end it has to be a motion supported by police men themselves, if they don't play along, it doesn't matter —Preceding unsigned comment added by Danthemango (talk • contribs) 15:51, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
F*** those stupid cops. I hate them too. Anytime a cop gets burned literally or figuratively, I'm cheering. Here in Arizona, whenever I see cops park their vehicles in handicapped spaces and are eating, e.g., a Denny's, I take photos, block in their car until their supervisor arrives. Right on! Get those F***ing slime cops. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:56, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
stupidity is his forte.
Look im for any other person who exposes the truth and i dont like bad cops either but why is he ignoring everyones emails and asking for donations to me it sounds as if hes using this to make quick money and he knew the risk of pissing off new yourk city police officers especially since some of them are mob connected? he may find himself in a world of the fish if he he dont be careful and be wearing concrete boots to boot thats not a threat to him its just my observation of how new york city is when you make enemies as he is doing i should know i seen new york city life while visiting for a week to see how life is there too fast for me and no sleep but i handled it okay san francisco is more my speed but jimmy judge not lest ye be judged peace out. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:40, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
Way to go Jimmy. We are all subject to the same laws. They that enforce the laws must set an example. If you abuse the law you expect us to obey, shame on you, and you deserve everything you get. Ed —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:30, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Jimmy Justice in LA
I love what Jimmy Justice is doing in NYC. I wish we had a Jimmy Justice out here in LA Cali. I hope the television show goes on air soon. This will display a positive message to the public I hope world wide. Keep up the goooooooood work!!!!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs)
Jimmy Justice is NOT a moron.
Whether you are an officer of any kind or not, you need to obey the law. Of course, there are those instances such as emergencies where officers need to respond. However, if an officer parks a city vehicle in front of a fire hydrant to go into a restaurant for lunch, what the hell, they should be presented with a violation. This is not correct and this is what Jimmy Justice wants people to understand. WAY TO GO JIMMY JUSTICE!!!!!!!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs)
This guy jimmy justice is a hater, obviously hes mental, too much time on his hands!
This jimmy guy should be arrested for menacing and harrassing people! this guy thinks because he has a license to harass people because he has a camera in his hands. he is like a shrimp that wouldnt say a word to anyone, but then makes friends with a bully and goes runnin his mouth. i cant see what this dude does to pay his bills when he does this day n night up to 30hrs a week according to tv. This guy is like a snitch that nobody likes! hes probably the same guy that shot a pic of olympic swimmer micheal phelps hitting the bong! bottom line, this guy will get his one day, when you go an video tape people that do dangerous jobs all day on the streets, who cares if they borrow those streets for a minute by parking in violation! this guy is going to get it one day, i will laugh. you dont have a license to harrass anyone at anytime, if he turned the videos into the city that would be one issue, but this guy isnt seeking a change in behavior on the part of city workers. he is seeking to use his camera as a license to bully people, and talk trash, thats why he yells at people, embarrases them etc. hes going to get his one day! jimmy justice F$%^ you! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:23, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
jimmy justice video's
I saw a series of Jimmy's so called justice video's on "Caught on camera." I could not fail to notice that he targets blacks in these video's. I saw no Caucasian officers filmed, only African-Americans and an Asian descendant. Shame on you Jimmy! You are breaking the law! You are a racist, as is proven by your own video's.
I commend your wanting to make city officials accountable for their actions!!! You keep up the good work Jimmy!! Want to come to Boston - we would love you here!! :-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:18, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
We commend your wanting to make city officials accountable for their actions!! We depend on them to set a good example, and by them taking advantage of the system, you make it known. You keep up the good work Jimmy!! Want to come to Boston - we would love you here??!! :-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 04:21, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
