Should Police Officers Receive Harsher Sentences For Committing Crimes?
That’s what we are asking after hearing that a MPD officer was busted in a burglary ring sting. We asked the question on Twitter and here is what we heard.
“yep they should give cops more time because they are suppose to be held to a higher standard”.- BlackTrae
“Yes, they definitely should because the oath that they take is to protect and serve the people not to commit crimes” -Chclatebrowngrl
“punishment is harsher for ppl who commit crimes against police, so yes, their penalties should be more severe.” -TrillHansen
