I'll bet he exceeded the speed limit, failed to come to a full and complete stop, and parked on the sidewalk. Jerk.

If you think cops are pigs, next time you need help, try calling a hippie.

I am going to poke at the mom in this story.  Why would you not leave the house when it is on fire?  'Oh, it just smoke.  We continue with life as if the smoke can't be a sign of fire.'  Everytime I smell smoke I atleast check it out.  Especially when you can tell the difference between leaves burning or man made materials.  Bugged a neighbor once because we smelled burning plastic coming from her house.  Turned out it was intentional burning, but I would've felt terrible if we had done nothing and lost our neighbor.

/although the kid may have had one of those teachers that don't take a house burning down as an excuse for late homework

Maybe you should drive: J. Frank Parnell: Questionable whether either would help, but chances of getting shot or beaten are pretty low with hippies.

It's amazing how quickly we forget our history.  We can start with the Manson Family and then move on to the other extreme number of serial killers throughout the 60's and 70's if you like.  The "Hippie" era was among the most violent periods of our nation's history.  And the "hippies" were doing the killing.


Really? Really? You got some statistics on that, or are you just jealous you never got to be a hippie, because you were so incredibly uncool?

bingethinker: Is this where we pretend this one decent, honest guy makes up for all the lying criminals wearing police uniforms all over the planet?


The majority of police officers that I've encountered are just fine.   Don't be a complete jackass when they're trying to do their job and you shouldn't have any issues.  However, I can see how your attitude can cause you problems.  For example, I'm not even a cop and I want to taser you right now.

That piggy! I'm sure he didn't have legal cause to enter the premises. Plus, I'm sure he's going to use all the stuff he found illegally to throw them in jail. And all those 'burns' and 'smoke inhalation' - cop talk for lighter burns and tear gas!

Frederick: miss diminutive: bingethinker: Is this where we pretend this one decent, honest guy makes up for all the lying criminals wearing police uniforms all over the planet?

The fact that he happened to be a cop is should be irrelevant to the story or his heroism. He put his life at risk to save others; he could be a baby seal clubbing, excessive coupon-using, Nickelback-listening, three-letter-scrabbling, Tea Partier for all I care.

This is subtle propaganda on the part of the publication (and fark headline writer) -pro law enforcement.  If it had been a tow truck driver would the hero's occupation had been in the headline?  I doubt it.

Because I recognize the propaganda I dont mind it too much -the cops could use some good publicity.  But the purposeful use can be influential.


Why not just go the extra step and say this was a false flag operation by the police department? Maybe you can wake some of us sheeple.

Sounds like the building didn't have working smoke detectors. I hope the owners/managers get more than a stern talking to.

What if the help I need is weed?

He writes checks at the grocery. In fact, he doesn't even get his checkbook out until the cashier scans everything and announces the total.  Obviously, he hasn't written the recipient, or the date, on the check in advance.
