fusillade762: "I told them, 'write me a ticket or shut the fark up,'" he said, acknowledging that he doesn't hesitate to speak his mind to the cops...

News Flash: Pissing off cops will get you hassled by them. Ric Romero has more at eleven.


Yeah, well, there's that, too.  I think there's a good instructional video by Chris Rock out there, somewhere....... words to live by.

So this story has government healthcare, police abuse, and the war on terror.

That's a three-fer.  I think we get high taxes and gay marriage involved, and I'll get the BINGO.

Pattuq: The biggest problem (and flaw) with having a system wherein people represent and enforce laws is the people themselves.  Few people are utterly uncorruptable, noble and altruistic enough to be trusted as fair and impartial machines of justice.  Police robots will be beneficial, regardless of what science fiction has led Internet nerds to fear.

sycraft: You know Reason... I think I'd drop this story. Not saying the cops are justified here but this guy is massively unsympathetic. If you are so hostile towards your doctor that they call the cops, you have an issue. Yes they may have been asking you about your drinking. Know why? Because it is a major health related issue so it is their business. If you then are a dick to the cops, well it isn't 100% surprising if they are dicks back. Doesn't mean they are right to do it, but you can't really act all surprised.

Seriously people, when you want to write stories about police abuse, don't pick the ones where the victim is a total d-bag. It really doesn't get people over to your viewpoint.


This.  The only thing this story pointed out is 1) the vet is a dick.  2) Cops hold grudges.

Doktor_Zhivago: So the dude was a giant dick to everybody at the hospital and the cops told him to f*ck off

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE


FTA: "McRae got upset his doctor didn't accept his answer to a question about his drinking habits. He had calmed down by the time they got there, and the doctor said she could finish her appointment with McRae."

If that sounds like being "a giant dick" to you, then I can tell you're a sensitive little flower that needs to be protected from the big bad mean world.

Old farking vet in huge amounts of pain because of 20 pieces of metal in his neck gets a bit upset with a female doctor giving him shiat about drinking too much. He didn't get violent, he yelled a bit, then calmed down. Suggesting that cops should deny him further medical treatment makes me want to punch you in your tiny little nutsack.

Old vets with shrapnel in their bodies, who are in pain aren't allowed to get upset and deserved to be harassed by farkwit cops? You're an assclown.

Reason and Raw Story aren't even real organizations. All of our crazy family members got together because we stopped reading their email and they put the crap in a new format then paid Fark to publish it.

The cop ordered him off the hospital under threat of trespass arrest, which caused MacRae to miss his weekly appointment for his blood tests that enables him to survive despite having more than 20 pieces of metal in his neck.

That's right. He will die now because he didn't get his blood drawn. Thanks cops.

As soon as people start over-exaggerating it makes me think that they aren't being very honest about the whole situation.
