pkellmey:

My town just announced the police want to start using Google Glass to help identify people on the street. The lines are really getting blurry here.

Another reason to hate google.  Who needs just any random cop knowing who you are at a glance and what your web surfing habits are? OH I'm sorry, I'm making a complaint from the future in the previous sentence.

BTW, you better believe that's exactly what we're heading towards.

Anyone wearing google glass is a non person to me.

Hey, some people pay good money to have the feeling of 10,000 volts through their good-time parts...

Positively shocking.

The Girl: "That was fun!  Can I do another one?

The Cop:  "Sure, honey!  Joe, get that litterbug in here."

The Girl: "Oh, a litterbug!  They're the worst!  I'm going to make him crawl."

The Cop: "Have you ever considered a career in law enforcement?"

Ah, maybe that's what I missed. Due to a freak accident as a young girl, she has no sense of smell! Therefore, FarkedOver found the perfect wife. He can continue his habit in secret, and not have her biatch at him. Until she found his butt-cup, that is...

Some women, as they get older, seem to lose their sense of smell.  My MIL and her sister both have this problem.

Years ago at my old job they put those cigarette butt tubes outside where I was working. The aholes still flicked them where they wanted to. When they wanted people to clean up the parking lot and common areas of butts they tried to get me into the group to do it. The manager that was forming the group for some reason was getting mostly non smokers to do it. He and I got into it and I told him to get the fark out of my work area and if he had a problem with anything he could talk to my manager. I also told him that it should be him and his smoker buddies cleaning it up. A VP of the company got involved and had only smokers make up the group. That manager always gave me dirty looks after that but couldnt tell me to do shiat.

FizixJunkee: Cigarette butts are gross.  A tasering for dropping a cigarette butt seems fair to me.


He didn't drop anything, his father did.  The victim asked the cop if he could pick up the butt in lieu of a fine.

Normally I would say "there's more to the story" and they may be. But I'm thinking the cop was just a dick.

pkellmey: Who knows, if you can get second hand smoke problems, maybe you can get second hand shock therapy as well.


Stephen King's "Cat's Eye" has this plot. James Woods won't stop smoking, so they shock his wife.

DAR:  I still need to work on getting my cell phone to drop video directly to a remote server as cops now days are being trained to grab cell phones.


I hope I never need it, but my phone is set up for that. I installed Bambuser (a free app that streams directly to the server) and set the phone to lock when the sleep button is pressed. I have tested to confirm that the video keeps streaming when that happens. The app is on the main screen. So I can unlock my phone and start shooting video in a few seconds, and it will keep recording whatever is in range until the phone stops working.

Everybody should be set up like this. If you aren't, then take a few minutes and do it today. Photography is not  a crime.

Probably the taser. My shock at hearing about police brutality has been gone for years now.

I like to believe that these events happen less often now, and we just have greater access to information.

At this point I just presume all cops are bad and won't even look at one. Except when I feel like that makes me suspicious, and I look at them briefly. Plus I'll never lie to a friend, but I have no guilt associated with lying to cops either. I don't even recognize them as humans anymore.

Queensowntalia: gweilo8888: DAR: The mother should have used her cell phone to record the encounter.  Video tends to keep cops from becoming assholes.

Yeah, no. It tends to get the person doing the filming arrested, too, and charged with violating wiretapping laws.

Yah, really.

That doesn't always work out so well for the officer.


He'll just be hired by the LA County Sheriff's Dept without hesitation.
Cops are like cats, they always land on their feet..

i am just barely not okay with this.

ideal outcome.  cop tazes nuts of asshole who drops his butt on the ground.  tazer malfunctions and bursts into flames in over-reactive cop's hand and lights cop on fire.  a rare circumstance of no famly pets being killed in cop/citizen interaction.

A Tasering, for asking if you can pick up someone else's butt, does seem a little excessive however

They didn't tase the guy who dropped the butt.   They tased the guy's son who didn't appropriately respect the authoriTIE of the best damn sheriff in the county.

The President of The United States of America is debating whether to assassinate ANOTHER citizen without charging them with crimes or affording them due process GUARANTEED in the US Constitution and no one gives a shiat. So cops beating on people is not even going to register with most people. This thread is a perfect example. Lots of GOOD and I'm OK With This just because the headline describes person or people that folks have been trained it is OK to hate. Sound familiar ?

I'm not at that point yet. I know eleven cops personally to varying degrees (my old job on a university campus had me interacting with them regularly) and four of them were just decent guys who treated people well and with respect, took pride in their work and at least tried to see where people were coming from. The other seven were raging assholes who treated their badge like a free pass to harass, intimidate and humiliate people legally.
