Reader: Police brutality should be treated the same as rape, treason and murder

Yesterday, we posted about a $360,000 settlement in the 2009 Denver Diner incident, which saw four women being maced and billy-clubbed by two officers who are still on the job.

This last fact revved up a number of our readers, including this one.

Police brutality should be treated the same as rape, treason, and murder.. How are they any different? They were sworn to protect the people, a responsibility. This is a major crime and should be treated as such.. You don't give murderers and rapists a slap on the hand and then give them a job afterwards...wtf is going on?
