Popcorn Johnny: Police officers drive at high rates of speed as a part of their job, unfortunately that means that you're always going to have accidents, some fatal, because of the job they're doing.


Police officers can take curves rated for 35mph at 120 because they're above the laws of physics. Amirite? They'll just get that extra momentum thrown out of court.

markbrewers at 1:11 PM February 17, 2013 Why wasn't the child in a car seat in the back seat?  Why didn't the air bags protect the occupants of the jap car?  Don't people remember Pearl Harbor?  Don't people realize that the japs are sending us unsafe cars that kill us?  The driver of the Crown Victoria walked away, doesn't that tell yous something?  Buying foreign cars is un-american and has consequences.  Now the japs are killing us with their cars.

Koodz: Koodz: Mrtraveler01: Koodz: I think firing him is just about enough in this case.

A lot of murderers have that same sentiment.

Killing people while driving fast or firing weapons is an occupational risk food have that you don't. Oversimplifying this as "murder" is just incorrect.

Cops. Not "food."

Bloody phone.


Oh, I'm pretty sure you've had plenty of cops in your mouth.

Farkage: Popcorn Johnny: A cop got some traffic tickets dismissed? Oh the outrage. A cop getting a traffic citation dismissed is a perk of the job. Besides, I bet there isn't a person in here that hasn't been given a break by an officer.

He killed somebody you assh*le.  This isn't "getting tickets dismissed".

Popcorn Johnny: Farkage: It's evident from you responding to other people's comments that you are indeed capable of blowing a cop and typing at the same time, so I can only assume that you are, by default, admitting defeat by not responding to my comment after 2 requests on my part.  Interesting.

I'm not going to waste my time with an obviously immature kid such as yourself.


Translation:  "You have worked with many many Police officers on a first hand basis, and have much more direct knowledge of what they think and do than I do, so responding to you would prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that I know nothing about this topic.  Therefore I will not respond to you since it would make me look foolish and would undermine my point."  Gotcha.  Thanks for clarifying that!
It's the same argument that the gun ban people use when faced with pesky things like "facts".  I hope that works out well for you in life.

And as I said earlier, the second your "Cops are awesome" attitude backfires by one of them pulling the same crap on you, I'm sure the rest of us will be able to see the tailspin you go into from miles and miles away.

I'll try it without typing the word 1/\/ \/ 0 L\/ 3, because that seems to be a filter now.

History is a long and broad map of every stupid idea and every good idea, ever. It encompasses scope and scale that are not usually in view in common matters of daily living. All there in glorious black and white and in some cases, technicolor. It is the feather in the cap of what we have managed to offer as eduction, because inasmuch as the mechanics are necessary - language, math, science - history is the user's manual.

Here is how fascist states are installed, and this is from people who have installed some whoppers, not me. You create an event that instills the populace with fear and point to some nebulous enemy as the perpetrator, and call anybody who doesn't foam at the mouth on cue a traitor. You hold forth great amounts of propaganda that is designed to make the populous divided amongst themselves in factions, all rabidly barking at each other and trying to wave whatever flag you sold them higher than the next person's. You give broad and sweeping powers to all factions of the bureaucracy and remove and dismantle any protective infrastructure that prevents those powers from being abused or prohibits laws from being unjust, and you do this in the name of security. Next, you dismantle it's economy from within, and redistribute all the wealth into the hands of the ruling class you are creating and make the rabble dependent upon it for sustenance. You blame the collapse on the "ignorance and laziness" of the commoners.

Once absolute power and wealth and autonomy is established, you then - should your new herd of sheep have anything resembling weaponry - create events that urge them to willingly surrender them as a moral imperative. At this point, you own their lands, their labor, the clothes on their backs and they can't wipe their ass, eat lunch or have any viable income stream without you knowing about it, where they went, what they ate, and how much they have. You own them like cattle and you can do as you please and live like kings with no effort on your part, and they'll be kept busy waiting for the next urgent message about how the other poor, dumb sonofab*tch up the road, who hasn't got a pot to piss in either, is responsible for their plight - thusly unable to form a cohesive response to your shenanigans.

Any of this sound familiar? That's the play book. That's the 101. It doesn't consist people twirling their handlebar moustaches or clandestine meetings in robes or chanting. It's pure business and as plain as the balls on a tall dog. And it works every time because the people getting shook down are all certain that it "can't happen here".

It's a very silly filter, isn't it?

*sigh*

NoSugarAdded: cherryl taggart: jeffowl: jeffowl:

In more than a few jurisdictions, blanket immunity takes politicians, cops, city workers, etc. off the hook for any all liability.  So, at least Florida is doing a teensy bit better.

It's much better than $0 liability. $200k can pay for a lot of vengeance.

Popcorn Johnny: Fark Rye For Many Whores: This I can agree with, but that's not what happened here.

That's exactly what happened here, the officer was driving at a high rate of speed responding to a call of a potentially fatal crime in progress. He was terminated for not following proper procedure, but wasn't found negligent in the death of the woman.


Goodbye.

None, because they are missing an i.

/Was there a husband?

pxlboy: Kiwimann: I can't believe there are people in this thread defending the officer.
What he did was criminally negligent.  He deserves some amount of jail time (and the cops covering up for him deserve a LOT of jail time).
Except that nothing will change and we all know that. Short of an American "Bastille Day" or some equivalent large-scale rioting, nothing short of the bankers, cops, politicians, etc swinging from overpasses and lamp posts would change anything.

etc... The Koch Brothers, Sorros, Rupert Murdock and associations, the main figures of last two administrations and Congress who passed and upheld the atrocities of The Patriot Act, Karl Rove and party, controlling stock holders of GE, Exxon, AIG, Goldman and Sachs,....

You know they are recording this, right? (They are looking for the i's.)

My point stands.  A properly restrained ANYTHING doesn't go flying out the car.


Yes, the dead woman and the child are obviously at fault, and not the asshole speeding around a corner without emergency lights.  Her family should pay emotional distress damages to the officer.
