(Patch)   It's soothing to know that during last week's polar-vortex police personnel were at-the-ready to assist in case of an emergency... that is if they're not busy playing video poker on their laptop while driving in near blizzard-like conditions   (bolingbrook.patch.com) divider line 26

I'm going to suggest that the modmins physically move this thread so that it appears directly adjacent to the thread about curing vertical videos.

Come on, modmins, I know you have the power. It'll be fun.

I was curious.  I have seen a few articles by "Patch" but had yet to click on them.  I always associated them with the doll.  So, I decided what the heck this one time I will click....yep ...it was written by a stuffed doll.

I'm giving them a pass on this one. No shooting a dog, no UFIA? No problem.

Unless he was actively ignoring someone in distress, who cares?

FTFA: "The officer in this video has been identified," Rompa said. "Due to the seriousness of this incident, the Bolingbrook Police Department has placed this under an internal investigation."
How long will it take to complete the investigation?
"These are questions which cannot be answered until the conclusion of the investigation," Rompa said. "I cannot supply a time frame, nor can I go into specifics at this time."


Translation: Absolutely nothing is going to be done, go away.

Let's see...driving in the snow, playing video poker...nope, no problem there.

All I saw was a blurry screen with something on it. Couldn't even make out if the guy was actually looking at the screen.

But you wipe out one little car with a family of four in it while texting and they want to rip your head off...

It warms my heart to know that every cop in the world wakes up screaming in cold sweat every night, dreading and cursing the proliferation of cell phone cameras. They are far and away the most powerful tool ever created for protection from corruption, brutality, and gross negligence of public safety.

Squad cars are outfitted with all kinds of computer interfaces and cops are always multitasking.  They have their radios and their computers for mobile quick background check.

Cops are allowed to drive and operate computers at the same time.  Just how it is.  In each picture there are multiple computers and multiple screens:

Earlier this week the U.S. legal system said it's legit for cops to open fire on random citizens with no cause. I'm sure some dickless wonder playing poker will be severely punished.

Sadly...
Bad: You're a city cop on a manhunt. The pressure has you feeling anxious and afraid. Good: The DA says you can pretty much shoot at anyone one you want without any repercussions

Is this pants-pissing scary?  Or is that just for gun threads?  I forget who all is pissing their pants scared over what.

The polar-vortex police - are they part of Homeland Security?
