As a condition of early release, drunks, street criminals, and other lowlifes could have bombs implanted in their skulls. If they complete probation, the bomb comes out. If they get into trouble and their head impacts a wall too hard, they and the wall-slammer both vaporize. This solves two problems.

The video looked like it went like this

Drunk person is drunk, saying "this man is a gentleman", in a way a drunk person might think is being friendly
coont of an officer apparently misunderstands and argues "he's just doing his job"
Drunk person is drunk and tries repeating it in hope it makes sense
coont of an officer is a coont, and so is his officer friends.

I honestly can't tell what happens next, he doesn't clear his throat, he makes like he might be blowing something out of his mouth, but it's definitely not spitting, but it's enough that I would expect a coont of a police officer to overreact.

coont of a police officer overreacts
His coont friends join in to overreact

Some elderly woman comes along to check out his head injury, while they all lie about how he spat.

They're all coonts, except the drunk guy, and the elderly woman.

I wouldn't say that to their face, of course, because I've already served my time in hospital after coming off the wrong end of a police officer's coontishness. I have no inclination to do it again, and I know all police officers aren't coonts, but those 3 in the video are clearly a bag of coonts each.

Ehh I think they are both good for weird or upsetting news sources, but that's it. They're both a goldmine for Fark headlines because they're basically news aggregators with shiatty, obviously biased journalists. Add on the borderline-NSFW ads/links they have (I farking hate that "Does this peach look like a vagina? Then you're a perv!" popup on OV) and they can go fark themselves. We need to click the source (because there's ALWAYS a source) and submit that. Hell, maybe run a test and see if a headline from OV or Fail gets preferential treatment over the same headline from random sources.

Benevolent Misanthrope

While I can't speak for Fark on this subject, I can suggest four reasons other than bribery that could lead admins to pick OV and DM over more reputable or original news sources.

1. Submitters prefer them.

2. They are known to be free of malware.

3. They don't require registration, pop up surveys, or otherwise interfere with access to content.  (Like, for example, NYT and WSJ.)

4. Complaints generate thread thread page loads generate ad impressions.

You know how even consensual sex between a prisoner and a guard is legally considered rape on the part of the guard? Well, every cop who commits unnecessary violence should be considered guilty of first degree murder and a mandatory death sentence applied.

I think that's the same story anyway.

The dude was obviously drunk and it does appear that he spit, but he didn't direct his spit at the officers

FTA: A corrections officer said Lay told her he was upset and said something to the effect of he needed to let off some aggression, according to the report.

Uh, if you have a need to "let off some aggression", you shouldn't be working as a cop.  I've had bad days at work too, but it ever involved violence.  Fark this cop.  Put him a prison cell for 5 years or so.

FTL: The report also said each of the officers interviewed alleged Duckworth was combative, and either threw something at the officer or initiated the assault, but that video showed exactly what happened. Not once does the report call Duckworth combative.


This is the worst of it. Not that there was one asshole cop.  It's that every other cop who was present lied for him. So the cops who themselves might never have slammed someone's head into the wall for no reason except a dick-compensation power trip have no problem at all lying and covering up for the asshole who does.

I would actually be interested in performing this experiment. We could post the identical headline from a Fark® approved source and the actual source, and see which gets greenlit. I'll trust you to be the better headline writer.
 
2013-12-11 10:02:00 PM
Once again, the 95% of cops who are dirty go screwing it up for the 5% who are clean.  You'd think someone would come up with some way of fixing this.  The camera in the holding cell is a good start.  But we can go further:
1: Helmet/lapel cams for 100 percent of uniformed officers, on with HD video and stereo sound 100% of the time.  Footage to be streamed live to a third-party data company in charge with the safety of the data.  Change the criminal procedure to state that any arrest for which there can be found no cam footage of the arrest is not only immediately to be nullified by the first judge to see the case, but any/all officers with "missing" footage of the arrest are immediately put on unpaid leave until the technical issue is figured out.
2: all police departments of over 50 officers must have an ombudsman on call 24/7 who MUST BE CALLED upon request by any civillian contacted by the officers.  Now, if they abuse the privilege, we can write a criminal penalty into "intentional overuse of the ombudsman".  But everyone out there should have a number they can call at any time to get someone on their side looking at the crime  scene and evidence.
3: all police departments of under 50 officers must work with other local, small PDs to obtain the same ombudsman coverage as stated above.
4: Any police officer found to be hiding, destroying, or otherwise not preserving potentially exculpatory evidence shall be charged with Violation of Civilian Constitutional Rights, with a penalty exactly the same as the crime that the civilian was/was to be charged with.
5: Any police officer found to be escalating use of force outside of a clear need to do so will be charged with Battery on a Civillian by a Peace Officer, which will be a Felony of the same type as that state's statute for Battery on an LEO.
6: Any police officer found to be using force upon a restrained arrestee shall be charged with Aggravated Assault upon a Helpless Civillian, with a penalty identical to that of the state's statute for Aggravated Assault upon a LEO
7: Any police officer using an electrical device such as a Taser for the sole purpose of obtaining compliance shall lose their right to carry such weapon.  Any LEO deploying an electrical weapon solely due to the "attitude" of the subject shall be charged with Simple Batttery on a Civilian, punished exactly as that state's statutes punish battery upon a LEO.  They will also permanently lose their right to carry an electrical weapon.

That would work as a start, I think.

If a citizen has assaulted a cop the same way you can bet your ass the DA would be throwing felony charges at the citizen. I'm surprised the drunk guy wasn't charged with spreading possible harmful body fluids around (the blood on the wall).And it's sad that only one cop may take the fall for this, when all three cops filed false reports. Obviously they have an impairment to perform their jobs properly and should serve long unpaid suspensions. Would be better if they were just terminated for cause.

Suckmaster Burstingfoam: It's only the few, rare bad apples that you hear about


You're wrong.  Sometimes there are news stories about cops who do something exceptional by saving people or solving crimes.  Most of the cops I've dealt with in my life seem like good reasonable people and even if they wrote me a speeding ticket, I'm not bitter about it because I was speeding and they're just doing their job.

But the thing is these people are put in a position of authority to enforce the law and when they break it themselves, that's a travesty.This cop slammed this guy's head up against the wall so hard he needed stitches.  This really doesn't appear to be an isolated case either and while not all cops beat suspects for no good reason too many others turn a blind eye to their co-workers who do.

So there's a reason we don't hear about all the cops in your examples.  It's because it shouldn't be news and it's not.  Are you seriously saying it should be news when a cop doesn't shoot a poodle while responding to a domestic violence call?
