badhatharry: Great. I feel so free. Let me know when we can actually tell them to f*ck off.


You can.

A perfectly legal way to wind up committing suicide by shooting yourself in the back 17 times.

trappedspirit: ristst: Had a good friend who was an officer for many years. His #1 piece of advice:

Don't get noticed.

Whereas this is excellent advice, things usually sort themselves out to a balance anyway. If you are the type of person that uses the finger frequently then chances are you are the cause of most of the issues in your life that seem to be times where the finger sums up your feelings.


"Don't get noticed" is pretty much the rule of thumb when referring to the police....and that doesn't just apply to your right to flip 'em off. This can be applied to *any* situation that involves the cops, especially when driving.

I got the same piece of advice when I went to traffic school while living in San Diego....the instructor said that the purpose of the class was to teach you how to NEVER get another ticket. And for 8 hrs, he basically repeated that mantra in a couple dozen different scenarios...."Don't get noticed"....as long as you're one of the sheep you don't stand out. The guy that stands out will live to regret it.

trappedspirit: ... the common factor in all these unpleasant encounters has been you.


I love bringing that up when I feel like challenging someone who is complaining, because it's a hard point to argue against.

Less often do I point out that they are the only common thread running between all of their POSITIVE interactions as well.

I agree with your overall sentiment, I am just amused by the apparent paradox of something I say myself.

So when does it become unconstitutional for you to be arrested/charged/harassed for what amounts to "Contempt of Cop"?

/lucky myself so far but I've known people who had to hire a lawyer to get the bs to stop

"Don't get noticed" when cops are being assholes? fark that.

No need to poke a Nazi with a stick, thank you.

After only 7 years in court it's all cleared up. No thanks.

It's all fun and games until they yell the magic words!

STOP RESISTING

Which in my town means your booking photo will look like this:

Well, what you are usually combating is the paranoid feeling that the world is out to get someone so they need to be constantly fighting back by default. Usually people don't need a perspective correction because they have come to believe that the world is trying to please them.

DROxINxTHExWIND: StrandedInAZ: Our cops here are of the shoot first, ask questions last variety.

Plus, I'm driving while black.

No, thanks.

THIS.


I learned of this from Dave:

rushthatspeaks: teeny: It's legal to flip off your boss, too...why don't you do that and get back to me on how awesome the experience was.

I got away with it. More than once, I'm not kidding.

Btw, what kind of stupid coont would marry an asshole with sideburns like that... Jesus Christ lady, hard up?


Ok, that was random. Sideburns are hot. He'd trimmed them down a bit for engagement photos so his mom wouldn't biatch as loud, but I liked them then and I like them now. He gets a beej from me fairly frequently when he has it all grown out, so it's been a few years since he's trimmed them back that far.

Why flip off anyone other than Kent Hance, Gerald Myers, Craig James and (recently added to the list) Tommy Tuberville?

What purpose does it serve?

While I understand it, I find it kind of sad that there is such a desire to flip off the cops that we need the courts to clarify our right to do so.

Perhaps we the people should stop making them punish sin.  If someone is not committing force, or fraud, leave them alone.  As long as we have the highest percentage in the world of our people locked up, hatred of cops is going to be fairly routine.

When we spend the better part of 50 years turning America into a corporate police state, that will happen.
