Cops getting agitated. No, not the ones in Ferguson...

You have to know America's local law enforcement officers are watching things in Ferguson very closely, and they don't like what they're seeing happen to Officer Wilson.

Via Second City Cop blog:
This is turning into a farce that no decent police officer should be standing for. It's past time for the National FOP and related organizations to step in, start making statements and initiating action.  
We have stated time and again here that cops aren't above the law - but we aren't under it either. This guy isn't just under the law, he's under the bus, and it's time to stop.
When I first started to write this, I was going to reference white police officers in the lede, but then I thought better of it. Black cops too have to be sweating what they see going down in Ferguson. Anything that might make a white cop hesitate in doing his proper, lawful duty puts black officers at risk as well, especially if a black officer finds himself in a bind, and he's depending on a white cop for backup.
