THat's a NO news day.
 
2009-10-20 08:22:41 AM  
That article made me laugh.
 
2009-10-20 08:25:17 AM  
This needs to go green, the world needs to see this.
 
2009-10-20 08:32:16 AM  
The reason for the stop and the outcome of the investigation remain unknown.

Good god I hope there's a follow-up.
 
2009-10-20 08:32:28 AM  
I'll bet he was either speeding or went through a stop sign. As such, I am greatly anticipating a follow-up.
 
2009-10-20 08:45:48 AM  
I, for one, intend to panic.

Would you say it's time for farkers to bash each other's skulls open and feast on the goo inside?

Usually I disapprove of the Newsflash tag, but I think it would have been appropriate here.
 
2009-10-20 09:16:43 AM  
best article ever
 
2009-10-20 10:31:05 AM  
I wish I could +1 this more than once.

ne2d: Usually I disapprove of the Newsflash tag, but I think it would have been appropriate here.

Indeed. If this goes green, it really needs the newsflash tag.

/Preferably with a blink tag around the headline.....

This barely warrants mention on a police blotter.
 
2009-10-20 10:49:09 AM  
I also like how they think this warrants the term "investigation". "Casual query" is probably too strong.
 
2009-10-20 10:56:10 AM  
I'm quite upset that I had no idea of why this motorist was detained at the side of the road.
 
2009-10-20 10:57:35 AM  
Christ on a crossroad, my life just passed before my eyes; I was recently in that region apple picking.

I could have easily have been killed were I on that roadside, which is not at all unusual given my propensity to stop and browse through the potpourri sections of roadside stands. I suggest the Catskills (a.k.a. Sodom on The Hudson) cleans up their act or I will fulfill my farm-fresh Granny Smith, cider, jam, pickle and pumpkin needs elsewhere thankyouvery much.
 
2009-10-20 11:01:18 AM  
And not one mention of Old Man Jones' sick chicken. Pfft.
 
2009-10-20 11:03:51 AM  
They were pulling over every car on that stretch of sidewalk.
 
2009-10-20 11:36:42 AM  
Hey guys, I work for the dispatch near there and I know that officer very well. I've checked all my sources and after a few dirty looks and people claiming I'm abusing state resources, I finally got word that the perp had a tail light out. Repeat. A tail light out. More as I get updates but now my boss wants to see me in his office.

It's not the crime, it's the coverup.
 
2009-10-20 12:12:44 PM  
You Sallyboys that always scream "police brutality" all the time need to see these kinds of news stories and realize sometimes a police officer has no choice but to resort to violence.

I'm praying for his family.
 
2009-10-20 12:21:06 PM  
Reports indicate there is a 1.4 × 10^10 percent chance that OSAMA BIN LADEN is in the car!

I'm praying for Omarion.

No YOU'RE a Towel: Reports indicate there is a 1.4 × 10^10 percent chance that OSAMA BIN LADEN is in the car!

Surely you mean 1.4 × 10^-10. And I am not a towel.
 
2009-10-20 12:39:41 PM  
At least SOMEONE is standing up for the community in Greenport! I guess you liberals would be happy to have every type of outsider rambling into town, selling drugs to kids, raping teenage girls, burning down the church then just speeding off into the sunset.

Well THIS American is proud the police are there to keep law and order!
 
2009-10-20 12:59:57 PM  
I'm so glad they were able to provide a picture of this newsworthy event.

We know the real reason: The driver was black.
 
2009-10-20 01:33:19 PM  
This just makes me question why the media decides to focus on these crimes NOW. My theory: governor Patterson is starting the War on Seeing People
 
2009-10-20 01:33:33 PM  
If they keep this a secret any longer, this is going to be posted on Free Republic as an example of Obama's Goons harassing Patriots.

dittybopper: We know the real reason: The driver was black.

And hatless. I repeat, hatless.

Ryssa: I'm so glad they were able to provide a picture of this newsworthy event.

That's just what a traffic stop in Greenport may look like.


/Should we be panicking?
 
2009-10-20 01:35:17 PM  
This is what happens when the news desk needs to put something up on the online updates.
 
2009-10-20 01:35:31 PM  
Wow, you TFers will talk about anything.
Loved the article though, straight to the point which is nothing I guess.
 
2009-10-20 01:36:12 PM  
I'm still laughing.

Whoever monitors web traffic at the Hudson Register-Star is going to be awfully confused when this becomes their most visited story of the week.
 
2009-10-20 01:38:17 PM  
like subby, looks like he got pulled for running a greenlight

GranoblasticMan: 10/20/09: Never forget

I'd love to see the archives. An "On this day, 25 years ago" article recap would be great.

/Not sure why I quoted you. I think I just liked your joke there.

They need Balloon Boy to liven things up a little.
 
2009-10-20 01:39:57 PM  
Aw, come on, subby. Use your fark imagination. There was a police stop, that had to mean brutality, abuse of power, etc etc

Awesome.
 
2009-10-20 01:40:27 PM  
I am curious as to why this story hasn't been reported in the mainstream media. What are they trying to hide?

CNN is reporting a second Trooper has just pulled over the Pentagon.
 
2009-10-20 01:42:14 PM  
Do yourself a favor and read the article.

WOW...

/can't stop laughing
