Snarfangel: Fano: mrshowrules: RCMP tasered a man to death in the Vancouver airport.  He wasn't responding to English instructions on account of only speaking Polish.

Bonus: bystander who spoke Polish offered to help and was told to stay out of it

/very tragic

That's the worst polack joke I ever heard


He's not telling it right.


Try telling it slower.

nekom: Oh, he's black.  Who would have guessed that.  I'm whiter than sour cream and I can't stand the police, I can't even imagine how a black man feels in this country.


I've had many conversations with a buddy of mine. I think the worst was the time he told me him and his friend were pulled over and arrested for 'resisting arrest' because a driver in front of them flicked a cig out the window and the cops said they did it. Neither smoke.

Macular Degenerate: It should be completely legal to shoot an officer who tries to beat you in a traffic stop. Just sayin


This is the kind if thing I've said in other contexts, like it should have been completely legal for the parents of that recently murdered kid to have killed the cops who attacked him. Why should a cop's life be worth more than everyone else's? Why do the rules of self-defense not apply if your attaker is a cop? My life is the only one I'll ever get. I do not owe any part of it to needs a cop to feel in control.

In all seriousness, maybe if we see enough blatant cop killers being acquitted, cops will begin to change the way they interact with the public.

Dallas had a huge conundrum fit when the son of the police chief murdered a policeman from a neighboring town.

Folks, it's not rocket science.  When a cop makes a stop, comply.  The details can be worked out later in a court of law.  But when a cop is just trying to do their job, comply with their instructions.

Exactly now I just need you to █████████   █████.

nyrB: Maybe I'm missing something, but how is it legal for "profoundly deaf" people to drive?   How can they react to various things like cars beeping because they're drifting into the wrong lane or an emergency vehicle's siren?  It seems to me it would be the equivalent of a person driving with noise-cancelling headphones on, which I'm pretty sure isn't kosher.



Maybe car radios should be banned, amirite?

Pangea:
Nowadays I think that's pretty common, but you used to see cars with a side-mirror only on the driver's side.

Used to be there wasn't even a left side outside mirror on cars unless you paid extra for it.   I remember putting one on my Dad's car when they made it a legal requirement to have one.

GibbyTheMole: "NewsChannel 4 learned on Tuesday the two Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers involved, Eric Foster and Kelton Hayes, have been suspended with pay while the investigation into this incident continues."

What other occupation where beating the shiat out of, or shooting someone results in a paid vacation? Charges against the cops dismissed/acquittal in 3... 2...

I'm not a cop hater. I know a couple that are genuinely good guys. These are not these kinda guys, though.


Im sure at home speaking with you they are very nice, to you.

hell I bet the odd nazi saved a kitten in a tree. Does it make a difference if there is a couple "good ones" ?

HindiDiscoMonster:Isolated incident
the bad 5% give the 95% good a bad name


Looks like you're suffering from numerical dyslexia, you have your numbers reversed. Don't be embarrassed though, numerical dyslexia affects from eleventy to tewenty-teen percent of the population.

The One True TheDavid: Once a state cop in Arizona threw me on the hood and jammed his .357 into the back of my neck because I not only didn't immediately comply but also stepped forward with my hands in the air to say "What?"


--- Are you non-white in Arizona?  Well then that's why.
If you ARE white, my apologies and you should've sued, with the dash cam as evidence.


Regarding the OKC thing, I think 1 OKC cop should be killed for every 5 seconds he wast beaten.

They didn't have a Mexican nearby they could frame for it?

For the same reason we allow asshats do drive around with radios blaring or headsets on ignoring horns and sirens.

King Something: Netrngr: Serious Post on Serious Thread: The One True TheDavid: But, you know, it's probably wrong to prejudge and hate people based solely on what they do for a living. Even the po-po. Isn't it?

Nobody is this stupid, so I'm assuming trolling. But just in case:

YOUR ASININE COMMENT ONLY APPLIES TO PEOPLE NOT WEILDING AUTHORITY OVER OTHER PEOPLE.

/hth

Well maybe in your case. To judge an entire group by the actions of a very small portion of that group is incredibly stupid and shows a sever lack of thought. Its the same as someone saying all blacks are thieves or all Jews are cheapskates. Its ignorant stupidity and removes any credibility you could have had. I would guess you have had run ins with the police that werent on a friendly basis before.
They are just like lawyers, No one likes them until the need one.

Counterpoint: Blacks and Jews generally don't have much say in the matter of whether or not they're black or Jewish.


Also, they don't have to come out black.

So all deaf people really need to do to regain their hearing is comply when someone says "Listen to me!"?
 
2014-01-15 11:01:11 PM  
Well, it's not like the deaf wear signs.

cops are to be disrespected, ridiculed, and generally disliked, as often as possible.

Pretty sure it's entirely legal to drive deaf, because it's sight that is considered the necessary faculty, not hearing.  Horns aren't necessary, nor is it necessary to hear them.  It is necessary to be able to see into a lane you're changing into before switching lanes.  Hearing a siren isn't necessary.  It's necessary to be able to see the flashing lights, even if in a rear-view.  That's why you can be emergency services responding to a call and be nice about it and turn your siren off so people can sleep... you just need to have the flashing lights on.

KimNorth: Great Odins Raven: This is why we laugh when cops get shot.

No "WE" don't asshat"e".


The guy in the very next post after yours would dispute that.

flynn80: Great Odins Raven: This is why we laugh when cops get shot.

Or get hit by passing cars while writing extortion tickets.


And what should a cop do if you were violating a traffic law, arrest you and lock you up?
 
2014-01-16 12:00:02 PM  
He should be too busy assisting in investigation to all the unsolved rapes, murders, and financial fraud to even deal with minor traffic violations.
