She should have told the cops that someone there was smoking weed. They'd have busted down the door guns blazing.

Clearly the precinct needs more officers.

But look out... there's a half blind chihuahua in there with an attitude, so be sure you have your safeties off.

6 hours they weren't shooting people's dogs and then threatening to arrest them for bullet theft by canine.

That's a good use of police and a very appropriate way for cops to spend their time, since they are a clear and present physical, emotional, and legal danger to everyone they contact. They can't hurt an empty building, though they probably did anyway, just for yuks and because they could.

We had an event one evening around the corner from my house. The cops had the whole block sealed off and were mum about what was going on. One of my neighbours finally got one of the cops to speak to him and was told they came to arrest a guy on an outstanding warrant when he told the cops they'd better back off or he'd shoot his wife and kids so now they were in the middle of a hostage negotiation with the guy. My neighbour found out who the guy was they were trying to arrest and told the cops "Him? He's yanking your chain. He's not married and he has no kids."

Cops busted down the door and they caught the guy watching the local TV station hoping he'd be on the news (he wasn't). I'm not sure but I assume ass kickings happened.
 
2014-02-21 06:42:34 AM  
Just how many cops responded to that incident?

Good thing the building was empty. Imagine someone had walked out after the cops sat there for six hours getting psyched up.

The other day, upon the stair, cops saw a perp who wasn't there.

He wasn't there again today. How they wish he'd go away...

The cops got to strut around in their military looking costumes all afternoon and look tuff.  I bet they got to drive around in their tank too so the afternoon wasn't a complete waste.

I always have to laugh when that happens (and it does more often than you think).

We had a situation like this a number of years ago around the corner. Dekalb came to serve a warrant on a guy with a history of resisting. Their intel said he was home, so they surrounded the place.  About two hours later, guess who comes walking up the street?  And he had the audacity to ask: "Are you looking for me?"

So, they never at any time attempted to check the house, with say a thermal imager or something to verify that a living being was in the house.

Lou, fine police work,etc

Well in all fairness the building WAS loitering.
 
2014-02-21 08:38:29 AM  
It had a billboard on the side with some Arabic lettering, so it was also charged with making terroristic threats.

The building is hatless.  Repeat, hatless.

Hamilton. But I am pretty sure that nearly every big city must have a similar event happen sometime in its past.

Looks like every cop in Dallas was there. If you were looking to rob a bank, that would have been an perfect opportunity.

They were so upset at the end they walked across the street and shot a dog.

Good thing there was ample parking, looks like overflow parking for an event, wonder if they charged the cops like $5 a car to park, maybe there was a guy with a flag directing them

Submittard. If you'd actually use your brain, instead of trying desperatly to get a green lit article, you'd realize that the alternative, bursting in with guns blazing, is a really sh*tty idea. In this case, they followed s.o.p. You don't know who's there, so you take the time instead of just pretending it's a level in C.O.D.


You're an idiot subby.

Dallas police expecting to save a woman from a sexual assault were bewildered last week when they stormed an apartment  , only to find the apartment had been empty the whole time.

This still bewilders me.  How would a 6 hour standoff save a woman from a sexual assault.  I think they would have more than enough time....

/Yes I know, they had already done it by this point, which makes this sentence even more confusing.

There is a strange mentality that you see here on fark

1. Police should not use due caution if there is a chance that they might wrong and the caution was unwarranted
2. Police should fight fair and not use overwhelming force, even if it is available and would result in a safer out come for all
3. Police should automatically know who the good guys and bad guys are upon arriving at a scene
4. Police should not take the law into their own hand, unless they should have done so, depending on the outcome that the media paints as desirable after the fact
5. Police should act in accordance to what was the best course of action, as analyzed calmly after the fact, with all information known.

If the police do not adhere to the five guiding principles above, they are called pigs and idiots.  I am usually called a badgelicker (and will be again in this thread) because I expect police to react in reasonable ways, not act to some unattainable level.

Thanks. I agree. I've had to learn the hard way, that people are usually not glad to see me. Ever. But, I'm the first person they call when they want help.

Meh. the only instances where police seem to be helpful is after you've been beaten, murdered, or robbed. Any other time (which is 99.99% of the time) they're a nuisance.

WTF were they thinking? They just stood by with their thumbs up their asses and waited for their imaginary targets to finish raping the imaginary victim. I'm pretty sure that's not how you address a crime in progress.

In my life, 99.999% of the time, police are a non-factor.  What are you doing that they are a nuisance to you 99.99% of your life?
