Calling all fark cop fluffers!  Get fluffing.
 
2013-05-30 03:01:55 AM  
And so many wonder why people hate cops.  Later, this kid will be on message boards.  The numbers are stacking up.
 
2013-05-30 04:02:27 AM  
He's lucky he wasn't killed. He may yet be... no one here would even be surprised to read a follow up on how he's tried as an adult and thrown into the penal slavery system.

All because a cop decided to wreck his farking life.
Which they do, all the time, because there is no check and balance against thug police doing whatever they want.
Because you have owners.
They farking own you.
And there isn't shiat you can ever do to stop one from destroying your entire world and everything you ever cared about.
Because if they couldn't: THEY WOULDN'T OWN YOU ANYMORE

So the criminal thug army marches on.
And now thanks to Bush they can confiscate anything they can make up a half-assed story about to bolster their own annual toy budgets.
(because our owners love their thug army, but they'd much prefer if YOU paid for it)

If I was a terribly irresponsible person with no heart and a no sense of right or wrong...

I'd be a cop.

No, lol, well maybe, but that's not what I was about to say.

If I was a terribly irresponsible person with no heart and a no sense of right or wrong... I'd start to think:
Kill a cop - save a citizen

But what a monster I'd be to suggest that. That would be villainy and murderous vengeance the likes of which we haven't seen since our founding fathers. As such, I could never condone such an action.

How bad are police these days?
I'm almost ready to take my chances with the 'police ourselves' gun-toting libertarians. (almost)

How in the fark was he rough-housing with another kid on the sand while he was holding a puppy and feeding it with a bottle? I think the cop just saw some kid he wanted to fark with, and when the kid didn't get scared and piss his pants he decided he was going to make him.

Next, we will hear stories of cops beating children and tossing them in jail, or just shooting them dead for saying mean things to them, because words hurt, and have been compared with sticks and stones, and hurling sticks and stones at cops is illegal and a reason to use deadly force.

/and that's more of a logical justification than you'll ever hear from most police departments.
 
2013-05-30 08:08:10 AM  
This is why ALL police should be required to record their entire days with POV cameras. Bystanders should too.

Funny, according to the Fark Left, police are the paragons of society. Why would you need a gun when we have these exemplary embodiments of perfection to defend you?

You're right, having a gun would have made that situation much better.
 
2013-05-30 08:10:35 AM  
Meh. That's how teenagers look at everyone. The cops better stay away from the local highschool, a pack of girls would reduce 'em to a puddle of salty tears.
 
2013-05-30 08:10:40 AM  
Why wasn't this headline "Black Teen Commits Contempt of Cop AND LIVES"?
 
2013-05-30 08:10:50 AM  
So wait, he was roughhousing with a friend and he was holding a 6-week old puppy at the same time?  I say he deserved to get slammed to ground for that.  Not so sure about for "dehumanizing stares."

"Police say the 14-year-old kid gave them dehumanizing stares, clenched his fists and appeared threatening."

How much of a pussy do you have to be to feel threatened by a 14 year old?

I mean they aren't as threatening as a chihuahua.
 
2013-05-30 08:13:11 AM  
So they slammed him on the ground and the kid tried to get away so they said that was a threat to them?  Jesus I can't believe they actually went on record with that line.

Can't wait until their unions get nuked. They think they're safe, they aren't.

What the fark are you talking about? Most liberals I know think law enforcement vastly abuse their power.
 
2013-05-30 08:15:05 AM  
Stories like this make me very grateful to be an expat. I tried to be the good citizen, get involved locally, etc. It's just no use anymore. The US has done lost her damn mind. My biggest problems now are being woken by howler monkeys. That suits me just fine.

Sounds like the kid was trying to walk away at first.   Walking away is ALWAYS threatening behavior!

I think that's referred to as "eye farking."
 
2013-05-30 08:17:46 AM  
A beach on memorial day, me thinks there will be plenty of witnesses to testify.  Gotta wonder how an unarmed fourteen year old kid who is walking away from two armed police officers is any threat.  If your THAT scared of some unarmed child then I know a yellow road and a wizard you need to visit, he might have something your lacking.  Well he might have several things your lacking come to think of it.

That guy in middle and high school that would punch people out because they were 'looking at him funny'? He became a cop. I really wish I could go back to the idea that cops really are there to protect and serve, but that story from a couple of years ago that police forces were rejecting candidates that were "too smart" and stories like this just keep reinforcing the idea that more and more cops are just bullies who were just mart enough to realize after high school that their power trip could continue if they managed to snag a badge. And of course the thin blue line will keep any investigation of wrongdoing in this case from proceeding.
 
2013-05-30 08:24:26 AM  
beginning to think the only reason cops exist is to self perpetuate themselves. round and round we go

Somebody told me the other day on Fark that I should only talk about racism if I can be funny and amusing. You know, provide a pithy anecdote or a humorous spin. I should be hilarious when I talk about racism.

I should try to be snarky or provide an interesting spin or just give it, you know, some punch! Woot! That way, when I talk about racism, that person might be more inclined to listen or think about what I was saying.

If people don't listen, it's my fault, because I'm not funny enough.

And if a black kid is carrying a puppy that he's feeding with a bottle, he's a threat.

Hilarious!

No, you're talking about a teenager. It's "giving the stinkeye."

/"Staring bullets" is something else entirely, too.
