Bill Maher: “Police Culture Has To Change”

Bill Maher: “Police Culture Has To Change”


>>Stephen: WE’RE BACK WITH
OUR FRIEND BILL MAHER. BILL, AS I SAID, TOMORROW
FRIDAY, YOU’VE GOT A SHOW LIVE.>>I’M GLAD YOU REMINDED ME,
I’VE GOT TO LEAVE.>>Stephen: WE’LL WAIT A FEW
MORE MINUTES, PLEASE.>>ALL RIGHT.>>Stephen: WHAT ARE YOUR
THOUGHTS ON WHAT HAS HAPPENED LAST WEEK? IT WAS ONE OF SORT OF THE
SADDEST WEEKS ON MEMORY, GIVEN A CHANGE, MANY SAD WEEKS WE’VE HAD
IN THIS COUNTRY AND ANNEED WORLD. DO YOU HAVE ANY REFLECTIONS ON
WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK SPH.>>ON BOTH SIDES OF IT. I MEAN FIRST OF ALL, YOU KNOW,
I’M A BIT OF A CYNIC. I THINK CIVILIZATION IS A MILE
WIDE AND AN INCH DEEP. WITHOUT THE POLICE ON THE JOB,
YOU KNOW, THAT MOVIE THE PURGE, IT WOULD BE THAT EVERY DAY. WITHOUT THE POLICE.>>Stephen: I BELIEVE THAT
THERE SHOULD BE A SOCIAL ORDER AND THERE SHOULD BE SOME
AUTHORITY. AND WITHOUT IT, YOU KNOW SHALL
IT– IN TWO DAYS WOULD YOU EAT MY LIVER. (LAUGHTER)
>>AND IT WOULDN’T BE GOOD FOR YOU.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>SO OBVIOUSLY ANY TIME ANYBODY
SHOOTS A POLICEMAN, YOU KNOW, IT’S JUST ABHOR ANT. AND YOU KNOW, THERE’S NO ANDS,
IFS OR BUTS ABOUT T SO I DON’T CONDONE IT BUT I UNDERSTAND
TESTIMONY YOU CAN ONLY LOOK AT SO MANY VIDEOS OF SHOOTING
UNARMED BLACK PEOPLE. I’M SURPRISED IT ACTUALLY DIDN’T
HAPPEN BEFORE.>>Stephen: HUH-UH HUH. AND SAID FAMOUSLY THAT THOSE WHO
MAKE PEACEFUL REVOLUTION POSSIBLE MAKE VIOLENT REVOLUTION
INEVITABLE.>>RIGHT, YEAH.>>Stephen: AND BLACK LIVES
MATTER MOVEMENT IS TRYING TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE FACT THAT
THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A LONG TIME AND IT COMES, IS PAID
ATTENTION TO AND THEN IT PASSES.>>THIS GOES BACK TO, WELL,
CERTAINLY BEFORE. BUT ON TAPE RODNEY KING. RODNEY KING WAS WHAT, 1991? ’92, SOMETHING LIKE THAT. I MEAN WE ALL LOOKED AT THAT
TAPE AND WE THOUGHT HOW CAN THESE COPS GET AWAY WITH THIS. YOU KNOW, NO MATTER WHAT RODNEY
KING DID, LEAD THEM ON A CHASE, THEY GOT HIM ON THE GROUND AND
THERE ARE SIX GUYS WHALING ON HIM WITH A BATON AND SHOW THEY
GET OFF. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG HERE
THAT HAS TO BE ADDRESSED. SO OBVIOUSLY VIOLENCE IS WRONG
ON BOTH SIDES. BUT YOU KNOW, I’VE BEEN TALK
TALKING ABOUT POLICE CULTURE IN THIS COUNTRY FOR A LONG TIME. LIKE I SAY, WE ALL NEED THE
POLICE. I THINK WE RESPECT THEM BUT
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH POLICE CULTURE. AND I DON’T THINK MOST POLICEMAN
ARE BAD PEOPLE OR WOULD DO THE THINGS WE SEE ON TAPE AM BUT
THERE IS THAT THIN BLUE LINE MENTALITY WHERE THEY PROTECT
THEIR OWN. AND I THINK THAT– .>>Stephen: YOU THINK IT’S
DIFFERENT NOW, DO YOU THINK IT’S WORSE THAN IT USED TO BE OR DO
YOU THINK THAT WE JUST GET TO SEE SOME OF THE ABUSES OF
AUTHORITY NOW.>>THAT’S TRUE TOO. WE SEE IT MORE. I CERTAINLY DON’T THINK IT’S ANY
BETTER. I THINK WE JUST SEE IT. AND I THINK THE POLICE KIND OF
LIKE THE PRIESTHOOD, THEY ATTRACT THE WRONG KIND OF PEOPLE
SOMETIMES. SORRY.>>Stephen: THAT’S ALL RIGHT.>>BUT IT’S KIND OF TRUE. I THINK THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE
WHO GO INTO POLICE WORK BECAUSE THEY WERE THE PERSON WHO WHEN
THEY WERE YOUNG, THEY HAD NO AUTHORITY. THEY WERE KIND OF LOSERS AND NOW
THEY WANT TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO LORD IT OVER PEOPLE, YOU KNOW. THE POLICE DEPARTMENT CANNOT BE
REVENGE FOR HIGH SCHOOL. AND WE HAVE TO– .>>Stephen: YOU ARE THINKING
OF A FEW PEOPLE. ARE YOU SORT OF PAINTING WITH A
BROAD BRUSH THERE?>>WE DON’T KNOW. WE DON’T KNOW. BUT CERTAINLY, I’VE SEEN ENOUGH
VIDEOS TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE TOO MANY COPS WHO ACT LIKE THAT. I MEAN ANY IS TOO MANY. AND YES, I DO THINK THAT’S A
TYPE OF PERSON WHO GOES INTO POLICE WORK. AND BY THE WAY, YOU CAN
ELIMINATE THAT. THERE ARE PSYCHOLOGY TESTS THAT
YOU CAN TAKE. WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE POLICEMEN. I THINK MOST POLICEMAN WANT TO
DO IT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS. I THINK MOST DO DO IT FOR THE
RIGHT REASONS. BUT I ALSO THINK THAT, YOU KNOW,
WHEN THEY SAY IT’S A DIFFICULT JOB, IT IS A DIFFICULT JOB. THAT YOU VOLUNTEERED FOR. YOU KNOW. NO ONE IS CON SCRIPTED INTO
POLICE WORK. YOU WANTED TO DO IT. IT’S DANGEROUS, YES. BUT IT SAYS TO PROTECT AND SERVE
ON THIS SIDE OF THE CARD THAT REFERS TO US, YOU ARE PROTECTING
AND SERVING. YOU’RE NOT THERE TO PROTECH
YOURSELF.>>Stephen: THAT DOESN’T
DIMINISH IN ANYWAY THE TRAGEDY OF WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK.>>DID I SAY IT DOES?>>Stephen: NO, BUT THE
IMPLICATION OF THAT WHEN I HEAR THAT IS THAT YOU HAVE TO EXPECT
THAT THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN SOMETIMES.>>NO, I DISN SAY THAT EITHER. I SAID I’M SURPRISED THAT IT
HASN’T HAPPENED BEFORE. YOU CANNOT SHOOT UNARMED PEOPLE
CONTINUE ALLLY WITHOUT SOMEONE FIRING BACK. SORRY. THAT’S JUST THE WAY IT IS. AND I HOPE IT GETS BETTER IN
THIS COUNTRY. IT SHOULD GET BETTER. AND I DON’T WANT TO SEE ANY MORE
VIOLENCE. BUT YES, I DO THINK POLICE
CULTURE HAS TO CHANGE TO A DEGREE. IT’S ONLY BEEN RECENTLY WHEN WE
SAW THESE HORRIFIC SHOOTINGS AND ONLY RECENTLY THAT THEY EVEN
SAID WELL, YOU KNOW, THIS WAS WRONG. BEFORE THAT IT WAS ALWAYS, THEY
WERE DOING IT BY THE BOOK. BY THE BOOK? WELL, MAYBE YOU NEED A NEW BOOK. (APPLAUSE).>>Stephen: THERE IS SOME
SENSE OF– WITHIN THE FUNNY PART OF THE SHOW IS OVER.>>Stephen: THIS IS ALL BEING
EDITED OUT. NONE OF THIS IS GOING TO MAKE IT
TO AIR, BILL. WE’RE GOING TO STICK WITH THE
POKEMON JOKES FOR ALL OF IT. SO YOU KNOW, WE SAID EARLIER
THAT IT’S HAPPENING ON BOTH SIDES. DO YOU THINK THERE IS A WAY THAT
IT DOESN’T END UP BEING SIDES. THERE COULD BE A SESATION OF A
SENSE THAT THERE IS A SIDE. AND THAT YOU HAVE TO BE ON ONE
SIDE OR THE OTHER SIDE. BECAUSE I THINK THAT LEADS TO
ANOTHER ERA OF HOSTILITY.>>IT SHOULDN’T BE SUCH, BUT IT
DOES HAVE TO START WITH THE POLICE STOP SHOOTING UNARMED
BLACK PEOPLE. AND THE POLICE STOP BUILDING FOR
THE GUN– STOP GOING FOR THE GUN IMMEDIATELY. AGAIN, IT IS A DANGEROUS JOB. I’M SORRY IT IS, BUT YOU
VOLUNTEERED FOR IT IT’S LIKE A PROBING TOLL GUEST GETTING TO
THE OFFICE AND GOING OH MY GOD, I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M LOOKING AT
[BLEEP] ALL DAY. (LAUGHTER)
WHEN YOU’RE A COP, YOU’RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT [BLEEP] ALL
DAY. THAT IS THE JOB YOU SIGNED UP
FOR. AND THE FIRST TIME YOU ARE A
LITTLE NERVOUS, YOU CAN’T JUST BAM BAM BAM. SO I DON’T GET HURT. AND AGAIN I DON’T THINK MOST
COPS DO THAT.>>Stephen: DO YOU THINK THEY
ARE TRAINED INTO THIS BEHAVIOR.>>I DON’T THINK THEY ARE
TRAINED ENOUGH OR WELL ENOUGH. I DON’T. I MEAN WE’VE SEEN POLICE
SHOOTINGS WHERE THEY FIRED LIKE A LOT OF TIMES VERY CLOSE RANGE. AND DIDN’T EVEN HIT THE GUY. SPEND SOME TIME AT THE RANGE.>>Stephen: OR BE A
STORMTROOPER. PLAF
(LAUGHTER)>>YOU KNOW, I THINK WHAT
HAPPENED IN THIS COUNTRY IS THAT IN THE LATE 60ST PEOPLE CALLED
THE COPS PIGS WHICH WAS VERY, VERY WRONG. THAT WAS THE MENTALITY. AND EVER SINCE THEN, WE’VE KIND
OF BEEN TRYING TO MAKE UP FOR THAT. AND WE PUT THEM ON A PEDESTAL. YOU KNOW, WE– YOU CAN’T
CRITICIZE, YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING. THEY’RE ALWAYS HEROES. WELL, THEY OFTEN ARE HEROES BUT
THEY ARE ALSO HUMAN BEINGS WHO ARE DOING A HUMAN JOB. AND AGAIN MOST OF THEM I THINK
LIKE THEIR JOB. BECAUSE YES, YOU SEE SOME OF THE
DISRESPECT. AND SOMETIMES THEY ARE
DISRESPECTED. BUT TO BE A COP IS ALSO HAS A
LOT OF PERKS. A LOT OF PEOPLE KISSING YOUR
ASS. A LOT OF FREE DONUTS. A LOT OF FREE STUFF, YOU KNOW. AND THAT’S FINE. BUT THAT’S THE JOB. AND I THINK MOST OF THEM WOULD
WANT TO KEEP DOING IT.>>Stephen: IT’S NOT A JOB
THAT I WOULD WANT TO DO.>>BUT THAT’S WHY YOU DIDN’T GO
INTO IT. AND THEY DON’T WANT YOUR JOB.>>Stephen: THEY MIGHT. IT’S A NICE JOB. I DON’T KNOW WHO WOULDN’T WANT
THIS JOB. IT’S A VERY NICE JOB. I SIT HERE, I TALK TO YOU, THEY
PAY ME A LOT OF MONEY. I WAS JUST DRINKING.>>YOU’RE RIGHT, I TAKE THAT
BACK. THEY WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR
JOB.>>Stephen: THEY WOULD LOVE TO
HAVE YOUR JOB TOO, BECAUSE YOURSES IS ONCE A WEEK, THAT
SOUNDS REALLY EASY.>>IT’S ACTUALLY NOT. CUZ I HAVE TO MAKE IT GOOD. ANYWAY.>>OH!>>Stephen: REALTIME AIRS
FRIDAYS ON HBO AND CHECK OUT SPECIAL CONVENTION EPISODES OVER
THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. BILL MAHER, EVERYBODY. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING
HERE.

  • ICURA HOMO says:

    It's Simple, Police in America are not only Out of Control, Power Hungry and always out on the Hunt to make Victims out of Innocent people just to meet an arrest or ticket Quota, PROSECUTORS who are too COWARDLY to Prosecute the Criminals in Blue and the Local Governments who hire these Criminals in Blue have to be replaced and kicked out of office by the Voters otherwise there are family members of some of their Victims who can and will fight back like we have witnessed a few times in the past couple of year's.

  • Anna Zampi says:

    Bill Maher 😄💞

  • Pshhh says:

    Bill Maher has to change. Into less of a tool for the nonchanging left. You are part of the problem. Congrats on like sucking at plugging pot. You are a Californian in your rhetoric only based on you living there. Fuck. You have been fighting to fail for decades now. Continue and we will still see you. For what you promote. And continue into oblivion. Your media owners will be owned by those they and you fuck over. Let's talk talk talk until our ears bleed too.

  • Laurie Huntley says:

    Still the same, 3 years later. 2019. Cops are worse now and more entitled. Watch the videos they take of themselves. They are worse than the criminals……often

  • James Shafer says:

    For once, he is correct

  • Caelidh Goode says:

    Love Bill Maher but honestly, his comment about the police being necessary for rule and order is …. disturbing. I recommend looking into MARK PASSIO's What on earth is Happening podcast research … He discusses Natural Law and a whole bunch of topics. Here is his website.. Strangely.. it is for some reason down.. but I am sure it will be back up https://www.whatonearthishappening.com/

  • ro ro says:

    that bill maher would be a great judge. tell it like it is,no matter who or what

  • smile forme says:

    Speak the truth unapologetically and correct!’ Going on for years it’s just now in your face thanks to SOCIAL MEDIA

  • Mark Bradley says:

    You Americans still don’t get it. ITS GUNS YOU IDIOTS. Keep your second amendment, but make people prove they are sensible enough to have one. Make people keep them in locked cabinets. And it’s no excuse to have a firearm for self defence. If guns were less available you would feel safe, just like other countries

  • Hassan Smith says:

    Soooooo true….alot of cops who have been bullied as a teenager and then take it out as cops

  • Ex Essex says:

    3.48 If you watch TV shows like "Cops", when an officer presents him-(mostly)-self at the beginning of each segment, they always say they love their job and many say they've always wanted to be in the police. They should therefore never complain about it being difficult or even dangerous. It goes with the territory.

  • Jessica Cooper says:

    Stephen just not in the same league as bill. Bill took the late show audience

  • Julie Mitchell says:

    Protect PROPERTY and Serve the Public

  • Julie Mitchell says:

    Wiktionary pigwidgeon English Noun pigwidgeon (plural pigwidgeons)
    (rare) A small or petty person, creature or object, especially a fairy, dwarf, imp, or elf.

    (rare) A contemptible or stupid person or creature

  • SAMUEL RAJDOT says:

    I can’t believe that policeman in many cultures becomes a policeman just to feel macho or as a center of attention or as a powerful character … cross many cultures not saying the majority of policemen are bad but some small portion of them are just sick … thank you all good policeman.

  • Gedenir Fiorese says:

    Bill aged in these 3 years. However, Stephen looks the same!!

  • Gary Mota says:

    Police ass raped me on the side of the road once, never called me back for a second date tho ..oxox

  • AdrianMutu87 says:

    Colbert had a hard time in this one, but this was a good contribution

  • Fonce says:

    Our government has discovered how to project voices into peoples heads using extreme long wave radio frequencies. With that said, Isn't it strange that mass shootings have been escalating prior to upcoming elections? During alcohol prohibition, the FBI poisoned confiscated booze & returned it to the black market hundreds of people died.

  • S G says:

    Demonstrably false, without the police a military group rapidly forms.
    See nazi Germany, LA riots of 92.
    1 black man gets beaten so thugs burned half the city down.

  • RosMan Corp says:

    Colbert looks SO uncomfortable. I wonder if he did the interview today in 2019 what his reaction would be.

  • Graham Ferguson says:

    This is really pathetic. His reaction to police being murdered by violent criminals is essentially: "Police culture has to change, police have had it too good since the 60's ended" Obscene. Violent criminals are the problem, they are the ones who must change, not the police. If you want to live in a lawless hellhole, there are plenty of places you can go and do that. Don't let these fools talk you into destroying yourselves boys and girls.

  • The debt collector says:

    I’d say people need to change. Don’t be a piece of shit and you have nothing to worry about

  • tom kat says:

    THE POLICE 🚔 R A BUNCH OF SELF-HATEING SOCIAL MISFITS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    " WHEN THE LAW !!! BREAKS THE LAW THERE IS NO LAW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    BILLY BOY 👦

  • Dana William says:

    I personally think that reaching for a police officer's weapon constitutes escalation of force situation. Lethal force could be an option.

    I think erratically operating an automobile in a threatening manner is another situation where lethal force is an option.

    Being a cop is a tough job.

  • Fooks Lee Ho says:

    The thin blue line does make them all bad they know exactly what their partner did wrong or another officer on the force did something wrong that will directly effect a persons life or family or income and they say nothing even going as far as lying to protect their fellow officers

  • Martin Whalley says:

    Gee, Bill, could it be the advent of the commucation super highway that has a camera in every hand, often in real time?
    The same percentage of bad cops doing criminal activity is there but the situations in which dirty cops go bad are being recorded 10X as often out of sheer #'s witnesses whose testimony is uploaded to various outlets and legal officials. The % is probably going down due to the "Crosswalk Effect", as many videos will show the bad cops "Looking both ways before they proceed to CROSS: The street/thin line between cop and criminal"!
    When they see a citizen holding their phone cam up and recording, one of two things occur. If they can compose themselves and haven't given themselves to too many cathartic releases to which each time LESS INHIBITION ensues. If they cannot bring themselves back to human being, those represent the times you see cops violating the rights of simple witness not obstructing his kicking of his perp, just documenting it.
    Consider it a public service. Maybe police admin isn't aware of this officer undercutting public faith that THEIR cops have a previously unknown BAD EGG. We know little or no action takes place, which is like admin putting a banner up to say, NOT IN TOWN XXX! Since we have no such problem, please stop getting your National Geographic footage of OUR APES!👹☠️📜
    It appears many beleaguered police executives, daunted by a shortage of deputized officers or they have a headache or why does this crap (the confrontation you represent) always happen at the least convenient time or…
    The status quo closes more cases, and creates more cases, which require additional deception.
    Oh! There's that thin BLUE LINE that screws up the reasons that Americans chose to establish local police forces in the first place. Yes, we created them for the purpose the people feeling safer. The purpose has been lost through corruption and defended by good officers which simply LAUNDERS THE BAD COPS CRIMES!☠️ Enabling bad acting and sending regular citizen being convicted on ,"THEIR GOOD WORD"! I'd apologize to all good cops if A. They weren't co-defendants by virtue of their silence or B. They were visually indestinguishable from the bad cops, camaflouging them.
    It's sad that a great contributor to the growing problem is "Good Cops", that make themselves bad cops by default!
    If you see something, say something" and they will either get aggressive or go kill the neighbor watching his TV at max volume that comes to the door with the remote in hand. (Thank God I stole the throwaway gun from the last perp that had two) dropping it beside by neighbor whose only CRIME was to refuse to turn it down so I could hear my own.
    This is my thoughts and opinions. If you like debate, share. If you want to be a blowhard, well that's ok too

  • Stuart H says:

    Why does Stephan look so uncomfortable?

  • SENoR Sanchez SPANKSY Longbottoms says:

    Human beings have deep psychological flaws

  • Virtual Media says:

    And now Fox news is advocating arming as many people as possible at as many places as possible to protect the second amendment which is often defended as a way to protect citizens from a police state.

    The irony is mind boggling..

  • A K says:

    First stop having the IDF Israeli defense force a occupation force training our police

  • Doc Hammer says:

    People who work on power lines have a job way more dangerous than being a cop and you never hear them crying about fearing for their lives.

  • ptavangar says:

    He said that he's surprised that it didn't happen before… Dude, it's been happening for years and years. They just didn't always have recordings.

  • Radagast Brown says:

    God bless these brave men.

  • Radagast Brown says:

    Amen!

  • James Weirick says:

    Go on a police ride along to the bad spots.

  • Jana Meehan says:

    Bill, Stephen, I have honestly seen enough. The needy kid, bullied by others on the playground grows up and has to be a cop, taking his vengeance out on every unfortunate who taps his break at a stop sign. We've got to change this. First thing to do: double cops salaries. Then maybe we'd attract potential officers who can make a rational decision about a subject, even if the testosterone is coursing thru his veins.

  • Bryan-Dylan Weast says:

    Where's his teeth.

  • chefafischer says:

    I love Bill. I also lived in Ferguson. He's wrong .

  • Whiskey1 Bravo says:

    Wow! How often do you get to see two major assholes together in a video.

  • luvmibratt says:

    All were missing on here is John Oliver 😁❤❤❤- n Trevor

  • antonio volpe says:

    Sadly, police cult-ure will never change. creeps love the power and authority. a clockwork orange

  • Blink says:

    Both of my brothers were popular in high school and genuinely got into police work to help people. I've met asshole cops, but considering the shit they have thrown at them I can see how cops can turn into assholes. It is not easy work. It sucks that people refuse to see the good in police officers. P.S. There really isn't free stuff involved 😂

  • secret secret says:

    Bill is awesome!

  • secret secret says:

    In Iran it takes a person at least 2 yrs to become a cop, and they are still not good enough.
    I can't begin to imagine what the hell are the cops doing in America with 19 week training.

  • J Seth says:

    I solute you for telling the truth Bill

  • mike fabbi says:

    If I led cops on a high speed chase going 120mph through residential streets, high on pcp then attacked them when stopped, I would hope I would get a severe beat down.

  • Shriyansh Singh says:

    8:00 YOOOOO, BILL JUST ROASTED HIM BAD.

  • Leif Johnson says:

    Jon Stewart would have been much better at handling this interview. Colbert is just not on the intellectual level that Maher is on.

  • Kurdt Kobain says:

    Colbert got totally and completely owned here

  • Caitlin F says:

    Oh fuck that burn at the end killed me

  • alexleanh says:

    He's right about we're making up to the police nowadays, for calling them pigs in the sixties… Same thing that we're making up to the soldiers nowadays, for spitting on them and calling them babies killer when they came back from the Vietnam War. We're a country of inappropriate and overcompensate apologists. These people volunteer to do those kinds of dangerous jobs. No one forces them to sign up for such jobs. And by having these jobs, they do have a lot of other perks that regular citizens don't.

  • Leif Johnson says:

    Colbert squirms uncomfortably while Maher gives cogent answers. Colbert is just used to meaningless late-night banter. Too bad Christopher Hitchens isn't around to tear Colbert apart.

  • Christine Von Lossberg says:

    Have to keep talking about it..all of us.

  • Christine Von Lossberg says:

    Also, what really makes me mad is they do something horrible and then get the desk job and not fired.

  • Stephen Cotton says:

    There should be a balanced state – one where if a cop commits murer – he/she goes to jail. But the sad hing is – when an African American police officer kills a white woman – he will do to jail for murder, but more often than not, if it is a White police officer killing an unarmed African American boy/girl/woman/man – he will never go to jail… that seems to be the sad trend – justice still travels along racial lines. There should be no sides – firstly we should have better training for the police, so they shoot unarmed people less oftern – and then justice for all.

  • martinko40 says:

    BiLL MAHER and Stephen Colbert are 2 ASSholes in America who brainwash public.

  • martinko40 says:

    WE put criminals on pedestal , NOT the police man . BILL MAHER is WRONG !!

  • JaysanthemOfficial says:

    Everyone on the gddam planet knows that "blue lives matters" is just some smoke screening semantic bullshit Republicans fanned to appease their racism. Thats what's really fucked up. Like dont try and play the motherfucking victim when you're busy slipping another knife in a wound.

  • BoOo86 says:

    Why is Bills neck/chest so red?

  • Alexandra Symeon says:

    There are no good cops simply because in one way or another they all participate in the corruption through their police departments, the courts, mental health facilities and so on.  If they are asked to cover up crimes, they will do so, so they can keep their jobs.

  • danyl barbour says:

    it is now 2019

    In 39 weeks, 30 officers have been shot and killed

    im afraid that this might be the beginning of a revolution

    if we have one everyone will loos

  • Hug 23 says:

    s c interupts too much and talks too much!

  • Kokoete53 says:

    The bad cops are in the majority because they protect themselves. I have never heard of a cop stop another from doing bad. They support themselves all through the ranks until they get exposed. We need to stop the narrative that the bad ones are in the minority.

  • Meme Mtz says:

    cause i have to make it good ¡¡¡¡ ohhhh snap¡¡¡¡

  • Håkan Lindgren says:

    In many videos showing police violence, the police continues to beat the suspects long after they are lying on the ground. Then it's not about controlling the suspects anymore. It's all about revenge, frustration, power trips and sadistic behavior. Another thing is that the US police doesn't seem to understand how humans react to violence. You can't keep shouting "stop resisting" whilst beating or strangling a person. In that situation the suspect will be in tremendous pain and severe chock. The brain can't handle commands in that situation, when the stress levels are extremely high.

  • garfield y says:

    YES, THEIR TRAINED FOR THIS BEHAVIOR TO ATTACK PEOPLE OF COLOR AND POOR WHITES, BUT THEIR GIVEN GREEN LIGHT BY THEIR SUPERIORS { POLICE CHIEF, COMMISSIONER, MAYOR, AND ALL THE OTHER ELECTED OFFICIAL RIGHT ON UP TO PRESIDENT}, AND SOCIETY IN GENERAL. PREJUDICE STARTS WITH MOTHER AND FATHER, AND THEN IT IS PERPETUALLY PERPETRATED. SOMEDAY A CHANGE IS GONNA COME 111

    Salute Mr. Maher, Agreed “ Many is Too Many”, Your pinpoint commentary invaluable. Thanks.

  • Chris Reilly says:

    He asks dumb questions because he is dumb only watching because of Bill

  • Pat McCann says:

    Bill Maher making some excellent points here. We DO put cops no too high of a pedestal. And they DID CHOOSE to become a cop.

  • Daniel Brown says:

    Maher is way too intelligent for Colbert. Maher does his homework, Colbert is just an entertainer

  • oldladywhocares says:

    I remember my cop friends saying pig means "pride, integrity and guts".

  • Shashidhar Shettar says:

    "Bill Maher Is "THE FREUD of The 21st Century". Why I say this is because "his views & understanding & opinions about -What Type of People Go Into POLICE SYSTEM?. He is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT & THE USA & THE WORLD SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO IT & WORK TOWARDS CHANGING THE POLICE ENROLLMENT WITH MORE SCRUTINY BY DOING MORE RESEARCH ON 'POLICE'S VIOLENT & UNCALLED BEHAVIORS, THE LATTER CAN ONLY BE DONE BY HIRING: SCIENTISTS IN SOCIAL SCIENCE-PSYCHIATRY-PSYCHOLOGISTS-STATISTICIANS-MATHEMETICIANS AND ETC". THEN ONLY "THE USA' POLICE SYSTEM AND AROUND THE GLOBE'S BULK OF COUNTRIES FOSTERING "THE CRIMINAL-CORRUPT-INHUMANELY BEHAVING -MURDEROUS POLICE SYSTEM THAT IS THREATENING THE SURVIVAL OF THE COMMON SOCIETY MEMBER's SIMPLE FREEDOM OF EXISTENCE". THANKS, BILL MAHER YOU SHOULD GO ON GIVING A TALK WORLDWIDE. I WILL WRITE A LETTER ABOUT THIS TO YOU PERSONALLY, SIGNING OFF SS// (I am a University Psychiatrist-30 Years)

  • co122189 says:

    It’s actually one of the safest jobs in America. That lie needs to stop ASAP.

  • JohnGalt009 says:

    So it’s funny and ok and wise when Bill Maher says this stuff, but unpatriotic when that football player drops to one knee during an anthem? That guys name is Kapernick? Americans must all have flunked out in HS.

  • Turtleproof says:

    "How can these cops get away with this?"
    I was a child when it happened and I knew why. The news reported that he had a criminal record so people said he deserved it, they also laughed at his screams of pain. Very little has changed, now toddlers and grandmothers are being murdered.

  • Turtleproof says:

    Also, I took criminal justice courses and the procedure is fine it is not being followed, these murders were not, "by the book." It's called escalation of force: if the suspect isn't violent you don't pull a weapon, if he swings at you the baton comes out, if he pulls a knife you can pull a gun. When you absolutely must shoot, it's two rounds center of body mass, not mag dumping like a lunatic.

  • Dwayne Shaw says:

    "Civilization is a mile wide and an inch deep". Probably the most profoundly accurate statement I've heard in years. As for cop shootings, not only are they happening far too often, but why is it they seem to always shoot to kill? A commenter below says his police training was "when you absolutely must shoot, it's two rounds center of body mass" – two shots to the heart region. Why not four-six rounds at the legs?

  • Mike Lowry says:

    Criminal culture needs to change… the society that murders unborn babies needs to change. The society the rewards women for having babies without the father in the home needs to change.. cops need to be praised…

  • Lisa B says:

    Maher's point over cadets going in wanting to bust heads is true from what I have heard from cadets shocked at their fellow students of all races wanting a power trip.

  • Jean Redman-Roberts says:

    "Thin blue line mentality" – Maher right about psychological screening and reasonable monitoring. Investment worth reward.

    I love both of these men as well as Stern and Hitchens. But if I had to choose between the two of I think I’d take Bill. He has a much smarter, insightful take on the world. But then I think of the time Stephen stepped in for Daft Punk and then I’m team Stephen!😂

  • JoAnn Holmes says:

    Bill is right "police who want revenge for High School." I have seen them, not all of them but enough of them. They can be screened out, it is done successfully in some places.

    French Montana ? Hope he's good ? I'll talk to Donny ! Straighten things out ! Donny knows everyone can figure out Sutton ! Chris you don't worry about Nathan – just sit there and keep your mouth shut – bury your head and go be a coward – when's their next body camera conference ? Those are inspiring – lift my spirits – plus your going to jail – that's a layup ! Police are out of their minds – mass state police – going out of business – to prison – the 911 people are the biggest criminals ever – I'd rather die and bleed out then call them ever again ! He's awesome ! I agree with everything he's ever said !

    Most doodoo it for the right reasons.

  • Harold D Burke says:

    We all need the police sure Bill …but not everyone respects them …far from it. Cops are worried about those types so just be as respectful as you can possibly be and keep any guff to yourself. Tell it to the judge.

  • Paul Evans says:

    When criminal culture changes then police culture can change to keep up

  • Paul Evans says:

    One of the things wrong was the idea that you could go around shouting
    "Fuck tha police" since the late 80's and not expect there would be consequences

  • Meghatron says:

    Colbert just wasn’t intelligent enough to keep up with this calibre of critical thinking from Maher.
