My family was humiliated by our supposed "peace officers" we were thrown back of there cars. Threaten to be shot if we continued to speak. We under no circumstances should be treated that way..
Officers need to gather more information before taking out there weapons, there was children present.
Also a cop should not have the right to tell someone who's trying to give them information to shut up or be shot..
Officers are suppose to protect you.
 This very moment I do not feel safe in my own country.

Kern County Sheriff Departmant

Sincerely,

      A friend was constantly threatened by sheriffs in Tulare County before moving to Kern County and experiencing the same abusive treatment when stopped for a mechanical violation which when shown to the 20-year-old deputy was proof of having been to the DMV to have the car inspected and get her registration tags, then he looked at her insurance said it had expired which it hadn't which she also proved by calling the insurance company as he stood there...this has to stop. The sheriffs departments everywhere need to hire better educated recruits instead of taking abusive losers and putting them on the force to abuse people....this is out-of-control and rampant in California

      This is important to me because officers take advantage of there job. They disrespect, they threaten. & are accused of shooting innocent people. There should be a full on investigation on the Kern County Sheriffs Department. They need more training on how to deal with certain situations. Lethal force is not always the answer.
