NFA: Marcus Aurelius: "If it was justified then we'll deal with it, if it wasn't we'll address it as well," said Sgt. Joey Smith with the Henry County Police Department

Of course you will.  We all have so much faith in the police self-policing themselves.  Maybe you can go out and shoot some puppies afterwards.


WHO WATCHES THE WATCHERS?


The Picard, of course.

Treehouse huh?

what about all those weapons and crack stashed at that 'tree house'.   these 11 year olds don't have me fooled.  they were planning to build a tactical control unit and use it to coordinate and attack Freedom in 'murica.  clever kids these days.

once again, the Republic has been saved by our men and women in uniform.

"I learned that they're supposed to help you not make you feel scared to even come outside," Omari said.

Such innocence.

"If it was justified then we'll deal with it, if it wasn't we'll address it as well," said Sgt. Joey Smith with the Henry County Police Department.

If it was justified?  Obviously that 11 year old was a menace to society.  Should have called in the SWAT team for extra firepower.

That Guy Jeff: And the reason for his wife's call: "There were falling hazards, tripping hazards, all types of hazards, so No. 1 was concern for the children and concern for the environment," Dillard said.

This woman is a piece of shiat. I hope she has an incredibly painful heart attack from all this attention she's generated. Or at the very least, feels really, really shiatty about getting jackbooted thugs to pull a gun on children.


Well they can't come out and say there were black kids hanging out in the trees.  That would sound bad.

Any cop who feels he has to pull a gun on an group of 5th graders should just hand in his badge.

He's too much of a pussy to walk a beat.

I take that back. That was an insult to pussies.

fredklein: But people like you would claim that's just another 'anecdote'. Just another 'isolated incident'. I swear, I could find people like you on the beach saying "Look, another isolated grain of sand. And another isolated grain of sand. And another isolated grain of sand...."


Using Freddy's logiuc, I am now thoroughly convinced that hospitals are death camps.  I have heard story after story of people going there, often with no real signs of issues, and BAM, they are dead a few weeks or months later.  The paper is full of these types of stories, I have heard them personally, and I see it online all the time.

nytmare: You can never have a legit discussion about who's right and what's wrong in these type of threads because the libertarian pot-smokers all immediately swarm the thread extolling how they know the cop is automatically in the wrong and declaring their undying devotion to hating cops and how America would be so much better off without any cops. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic and formulaic.


Are you using sustainable methods to harvest all the straw for those strawmen?

hardinparamedic: fnordfocus: Doesn't change the fact that he was actually pointing his weapon at the boy he was allegedly saving.

The angle of the photo would disagree. He's actually holding it to the side. In addition, that MP5 does not have a sling. To use his hand, he has to hold it to the side, or drop the gun in the presence of an uncontrolled individual during a raid.

Which seems smarter: Dropping an automatic weapon, or holding it to the side with nothing on the trigger?

fnordfocus: You're a cop.

No, I'm not. :| What the hell gave you that idea?


"Paramedic" is just another codeword for police officer. Duh.

Canton: nijika: I think we need to hear the Whole Story(tm).

But seriously where are they hiring these cops? Where do you find people who are willing to point a killing device at a child?

Yeah, we do. I keep wondering what the kids were using to cut the branches. Did they have a saw? Was it protocol to draw a gun due to the threat *snrk* of a hand saw? (There's no way it was chainsaw.) If so, they should really look into changing that policy...

Seriously, though, pulling on a gun on 11-year-olds being 11-year-olds. wtf?


They were black 11 year olds.  That's like equal to the threat of 6 white 11 year olds.

Cops pointing guns at a black kid isn't really unusual.  The amazing thing is that some kids were PLAYING OUTSIDE!  Their smart phones must have been charging or maybe the tv was broken.
