Abe Vigoda's Ghost: [img.fark.net image 225x300]He looks familiar......[upload.wikimedia.org image 225x332]Now I know where I've seen that face before.
AverageAmericanGuy: The victim has a punchable face. The officer showed a lot of restraint by simply holding him by the neck.Case dismissed.
captcaveman: You literary own the cops.
lucksi: 800 people party? Jeez"This incident provides a perfect example of why we are in the process of purchasing officer worn body cameras (video and audio recordings) so incidents like this will be fully documented."Not that is a statement where police gets my respect. We need more of that.
redmid17: lizyrd: Shadowknight: NormallyTechnos: Fire him now, then refuse to put up a defense to the union arbitration and suit afterwards..Sheriff looks good, and after his reelection the cop will be back on payroll with back pay.I think you vastly over estimate the power and/or motivation of the police union.Indeed. I've been a union fire fighter in the Northeast for 6 years. I've seen 5 cops and two fire fighters fired during that time. It happens, it just doesn't always make it to the news.I also think people are vastly overestimating the liklihood that the Knox County, Tennessee Sheriff's Office is a union shop. I don't know for certain one way or another, but I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that any organization in that part of the country is unionized.Frankly I'd be amazed if they weren't unionized. Every single non-federal law enforcement agency I've ever heard of is unionized. The one exception, which was the only result I could find with a cursory search, is Camden PD, which closed shop and switched jurisdiction to the non-union Camden County police, who unionized almost as soon as they hit their recruitment quota.
SomeAmerican: lymond01: Why audio is important. This could have been the scenario:"You muthafarkin' pigs. You're worthless sacks of lard!""Yes yes. So we've heard.""I'm gonna come back and cap all you pigs. Soon as my dad gets me out...""Kid, you need to be quiet.""I'm gonna grab my dad's shotty and hunt you down, your family...""Oh fer Christ's sake will someone shut this drunk kid up before he goes from a night in lockup to 20 years...""Yah. I bet you have kids too. I'll shoot their little heads right....gack! Gurgle!"Doesn't matter. Case in point, the video of the Norwegian cops handling a drunk citizen. The citizen was verbally abusive but the cops laughed it off and told him how stupid he was being. Tension was defused and nobody got strangled. Why can't our cops have 1/4 of the class of these guys?
Egoy3k: I never understand the arrests in these situations. Kids have a loud party, cops break it up, kids get charged with public intoxication. Well they wouldn't be out in public unless you broke up their party now would they? I mean I can completely understand breaking up the party but unless you have them on drug possession or supplying alcohol to a minor or something how can you possibly arrest someone for being drunk in public right after you forced them to go out in public?
danielscissorhands: But he looks like such a wonderful guy![www.gannett-cdn.com image 300x400]
ransack.: That's BS. Any of you would have done the same in his shoes.
NormallyTechnos: Fire him now, then refuse to put up a defense to the union arbitration and suit afterwards..Sheriff looks good, and after his reelection the cop will be back on payroll with back pay.
deffuse: Wow.... I'm actually amazed he got fired.
J. Frank Parnell: Police, bringing one of their own to justice?What kind of trick is this?
hubiestubert: Sh*t like this only makes other officers' jobs harder.
