Did someone say we have a police accountability problem? Ferguson, Missouri, 2014:

A police officer points a weapon at a group of unarmed protesters. He says, "I'll f*cking kill you, get back." When asked his name, the officer says, "Go f*ck yourself."

Will this officer be arrested and charged with making death threats?

UPDATE: The ACLU says the officer filmed issuing death threats while pointing his weapon at journalists has been removed from duty. Here's the letter the ACLU of Missouri wrote to the cops, asking for this officer's removal.
