Dear KCCI News 8,

There is this new thing now called a "smartphone". Many folks like to "surf the web" on them. I only bring this up because your website doesn't support "mobile web browsing".

Just an FYI,

Did he taze, ticket and arrest the driver for making him pull him over so he could get hit by a tree?

No, but he tazed, ticketed, and arrested the tree.

And in other news, there's a "Guy buyback program".

A Massachusetts driver is going on trial for homicide because when the cop pulled him over, a drunk driver killed the cop.

I was expecting the tree to be shot 47 times.

Interesting branch of law enforcement.
 
2014-05-09 10:31:00 PM
Time for that cop to turn over a new leaf.
 
2014-05-09 10:38:11 PM
There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble with the trees.
 
2014-05-09 10:59:35 PM
Why didn't that cop bark out a "STOP" order?

I bet the tree got administrative leave until all this blows over.
 
2014-05-10 01:40:10 AM
I bet he couldn't see the forest through the tree.

So how long before the driver sues the city for damages since the officer made him stop his car right in the path of a falling tree?
 
2014-05-10 08:18:58 AM
Watch out for the special branch.
 
2014-05-10 08:51:34 AM
An apparently healthy tree nails this guy from 30 feet away on a windless night, and he thanks god he got away with only bruises and stitches? If he believes in divine intervention, who does he think pushed the tree?
 
2014-05-10 09:01:47 AM
And then he called for back up and a bunch of cops rushed over and unloaded a few hundred rounds into the SUV because reasons?
 
2014-05-10 09:06:21 AM
That violent thug has the reactions of a cat "don't he". He sees it falling and locks up in panic, stands there and lets the damned thing fall on him.

I know if I was in his gang I'd trust him to have my back in a crisis.
 
2014-05-10 09:55:29 AM
Maybe this guy thought the cop was a half-orc.

Do you turn that in on your insurance? How do you explain that? Dude's rates are going up, that's for sure.

Subby here.

They had a follow up story on the 10 PM news on KCCI last night.  The cop just had a few bruises and needed three stitches in his right elbow.  In his on camera interview, he said he stopped the driver for driving without headlights on.  After all the excitement, he didn't write a ticket.

Yeah, me neither. But this is Fark, the Fox News of cop-haters.

Nice try. Unlike you, I have absolutely no problem believing that this story is at least credible. I guess my search skills a just wanting. I'm not a boot licker like yourself.

Your characterization of FARK as the "Fox News of cop-haters" is utterly absurd. The vast bulk of hate and bile that American cops get on FARK has been, as Twain might say, assiduously earned and so richly deserved. Your apocryphal status as a former lawman notwithstanding, I assume that you're smart enough to know that and choose to deny it.

Two drivers indicted on motor vehicle homicide charges in death of state trooper from Brockton.
Trial set in death of state trooper from Brockton.
The trial is next month.


Thank you very much

By "The Fox News of cop haters" I mean that Fark focuses on the negative cop stories to the exclusion of positive ones for the purpose of showing cops in the most negative light possible. Try submitting a positive cop story and see how fast the red light comes on. I know this because I've tried it a number of times.

Yeah, I'm as aware as anyone else that there are bad cops out there. But I'm in a position to see the reality of police work and I know that those thug cops are far outnumbered by the good guys.

I'm not a former lawman. I'm on Fark at 2:00 am because I just got off work. Doesn't matter if you believe me.
