lazymojo: untaken_name: fusillade762: Non-Blaze linkAnother non-Blaze linkYet another non-Blaze linkIs it so goddamn hard NOT to link to Glenn Beck's personal derpspew site?But you'll throw out npr and gawker links? Hahahahahahaha.Yeah, because npr and gawker are comparable to this crap:It's just the "Flip side of the coin," right? They have their opinions, he has his, and there's no objective way to conclude either way. idiot.
FnkyTwn: CSB: Twice in my life now, when speeding 15+ over the speed limit, I've passed speedtrap cops, saw them, realized I was busted and immediately pulled over before they could even get their lights on. Eventually they pull up behind me, and I've gotten off with warnings and perplexed looks. I also keep both hands on the steering wheel as they approach.I'm not a hot chick, just some dude who realizes cops have a job to do that basically puts them into surprise combat situations all day every day. Treat them accordingly.

Katolu: Smoking GNU: maram500: When I read about police stupidity like this, I feel my blood pressure rising. Then I remember this CSB:A couple months ago, I was waiting on the side of the road to cross five lanes of traffic on foot. (To say my city is pedestrian unfriendly is a huge understatement.) A cop is pulling out of the parking lot I'm next to, and he leans out to ask if I'm waiting on the bus. I explain my situation, and he just says "Hang on a sec." He pulls out to the middle of the street, flips on the lights, and gets out to stop traffic in both directions. Leaning on my cane, trying to hobble across quickly, I get about halfway across when the cop tells me to take my time./How awesome is that?Wow. Nice dude, there. He probably got fired for not being an aaahole.It's sad that this one good cop is the exception and not the rule.
murderguy: Drunken_Irish_Joker: Do the Maryland state troopers still go walk out into the middle of I495 and point at you to get you to pull over for speeding? That was some brass-balls and rock-brained kinda stuff they did back in the day. I always expected one to get run over sooner or later from someone not paying attention.They stopped that a couple years ago, when a Howard County cop got killed doing the same thing on 32 near i95. Unfortunately was only a matter of time before it happened.As for all the cop hate here: way to go, Fark. That's the sort of mature, intelligent response I have come to expect from this establishment.When cops start obeying the law and policing their own, I'll respect them. Until they're thugs that should be openly despised.

JerkyMeat: Cops are garbage. The entire nation should basically weapon up and take them out.
dragonchild: Aww, who says our sense of community is dead? Nothing unites Americans like hate.As for the actual kerscuffle, not gonna judge based on the story (most news should come with a "based on a true story" disclaimer), but around here, firemen, construction workers and police eat up way, way, WAY too much room. Single-lane fender-bender? Time to close up three lanes for two miles. Laying the foundation for a big box store? Let's close two lanes (how the FARK did they get permission to do that??). Car stuck in a ditch? SEAL. OFF. EVERYTHING.Obviously this didn't take place where I live because when the cops and firemen meet they pretty much set up a damn roadblock.
Smoking GNU: He's gawddamn firefighter helping crash-scene victims. He can park where he gawddamn pleases.
