PreMortem: Coincidentally, TIKTIIKKATIKKATIKKA is the middle name of my Makaa'n neighbor.
MythDragon: Seriously? He just touched the cop. He wasn't threatning him. I've seen cops damn near lose their shiat when one is just standing around, and a guy walks up to ask him a general question and taps him on the shoulder 'Excuse me sir..." and the cop acts like the guy stuck his penis in his pocket. "DON'T TOUCH ME SIR! YOU GOT THAT? DO NOT TOUCH ME AGAIN OR I WILL ARREST YOU!" Arrest for what? Felonious shoulder touching?
dittybopper: nobody is that offensively stupid in real life
Ker_Thwap: bullsballs: You have freedom of speech, unless we don't like what you have to say, subjects...Hecklers should never speak the words "Freedom of Speech." Shouting over someone is effectively denying their freedom of speech. Tacky.
ChaosStar: You go find the disturbing the peace statute pertaining to this town, read it, and see if his actions fit it. Chances are good if they do, the statute would be found unconstitutional.
ChaosStar: Your Websters dictionary definition is irrelevant.
ChaosStar: He was asking the speaker questions about the speech he was giving because he thought he was being a mouth piece for Bloomingidiot's campaign. He wasn't "shouting over the speaker" or "crowding the podium". I already said what he was doing was annoying, and, if you're looking at it from an anti-gun point of view, not very polite but hardly disturbing the peace
ChaosStar: Donnchadha: ChaosStar: Really? Please point out where I said that, cause I never did.Bolding is yours --liam76: Even if he was trying to "walk away" he could be arrested for disturbing the peace prior to that.ChaosStar: No, he really couldn't, but I'm to lazy to look everything up.What the fark else could that possibly mean? I mean seriously, you're just being contrarian at this point and I've got better things to do than argue on the internet with somebody like you.Good day.Could it possibly, just maybe, mean that he didn't break the law? That what he did wasn't disturbing the peace?No, couldn't be that huh? It clearly means whatever words you put into my mouth.Good day indeed.
Headso: yeah we are thinking of different scenarios, I am referring to the video this thread is about.
dittybopper: leeto2: Simple rule I tell my kids: Gun + Badge = wins. You get pulled over by a cop you say, "yes sir, no sir," and you damned well better do it politely. You want to argue, you go do it in court...period.What's fun is white +50 males are now discovering that when it comes to protests, the cops don't like you. And if you're dumb enough to touch one...in ANY way...you are gonna eat pavement. Gun + badge = wins.And yet, there were upwards of 12,000 people who protested the new NYS SAFE Act in downtown Albany a few months ago, and *ZERO* trouble.
SuburbanCowboy: The guy was being a total dick to someone who had lost a child, but the cops shouldn't have tased him. If you can't take down a guy slightly larger than you all by yourself, without using a potentially deadly weapon (and tasers do kill people) you shouldn't be allowed to be a cop.That said, I wish these people who are so adamant about gun rights would apply that passion equally to other important social issues.
ChaosStar: liam76: natas6.0: guy had his arms crossed and was trying to walk awaywas even saying he was walking away..blocked by police until he gave them a reason to arrest himEven if he was trying to "walk away" he could be arrested for disturbing the peace prior to that.The inevitabel "assault" charge is BS.No, he really couldn't, but I'm to lazy to look everything up.
