Behind the Badge: On the Killing of George Floyd

Description

As protests continue across the country over the killing of George Floyd, Detectives Dan and Dave offer their professional perspectives on the conduct of the officers now charged with his murder.

Detective Dan is a former K9 handler and Violent Crimes detective at the same Small Town police department as his brother, Dave. Dan regards his years as a K9 handler to be the most rewarding of his career. He is now retired.


Detective Dave began his career in law enforcement in 2007. Before his recent promotion to Sergeant, he spent six years as a detective primarily investigating Sex Crimes and Child Abuse for his police department in Small Town, USA. He still serves as a Crisis and Hostage Negotiator, and during his tenure as a detective, he served on the advisory boards of multiple children’s and victims’ advocacy groups. Despite Dave’s well-deserved promotion, the Small Town Dicks Team will continue to call him “Detective Dave” on the podcast because … well… we like to give him a hard time. And because “Detective Dave” is basically his stage name now so we’re sticking with it.

Thank you for your measured and thoughtful response to the murder of George Floyd. My best friend is LE, my fiance is retired LE, and they're both infuriated and heartbroken. Not only was a man's life taken from him, brutally, but now every cop is in even more danger, including the good ones. Yesterday I dropped one of my other favorite pods because of their knee-jerk, anti-LE take on it. Small Town Dicks does things right. Thank you for your service, and for your compassion and integrity. G-d bless.

When they were talking about the person that filmed the video and how important that was. I read an article that it was filmed by a 17 yr old girl. She has suffered alot of backlash from people that she didn't step in and try to stop it. She honestly replied that if she would have tried to do something, it would have ended with more people being hurt. I 100% agree with her. That video is worth gold in this situation. She did exactly the right thing in my opinion.

not gonna lie, the actions of Leo like chauvin make me not want to trust cops. I understand that there are decent individuals on police forces... I kind of like officers Dave and Dan but with current incidents like Ms. Breonna Taylor's death, and Mr. George Floyd's death as with others, I feel like I'm in between a rock and a hard place...
