genner: pedrop357: rumpelstiltskin: Instead, the curfews came about because teens would constantly disrupt entertainment districts, week after week after week, and the police got tired of hauling them off to the station so their parents could pick them up. And the parents got tired of complaining that their precious little jewels were just bystanders and never caused anyone any trouble. So we have curfews, and the curfews work.

SewerSquirrels: sassing, running


because sassing and running are tantamount to pulling a weapon right? ESPECIALLY if it's a woman under 150lbs... Those biatches are dangerous! Need to beat them til they go limp so they learn their damn place!

How's about we start firing and locking up cops that abuse their position of authority... Stomping a mudhole in a 100lb girl for running is a gross abuse of power.

Chase? Tackle? Handcuff?  Sure, ok... they might get some bruises for that, but you can't tell me that an unarmed 100lb teenage girl is such a threat that custody is no longer an option, they need to hospitalize her...

fark them, and I hope they get shiatcanned, their wives leave them, they can't get another job, and they have to live in the ghetto right along with the people they like to harass...

pedrop357: Jument: Curfew, though. WTF? I thought this was the land of the free. Who the hell thinks martial law is a good idea?

It's the ultimate intersection of nanny state lefties, "law and order" righties, and lazy cops while being only  applied to people who have no political or economic power.

In other words, statists, political cowards and lazy asses are the ones who think it's a really neat idea.

Nevermind that it has NO positive effect on juvenile crime and may actually make things worse - cops who feel the need to stop people under 18 can't see the real crime down the street, and empty streets tends to enable/encourage crime.


This. Authority lovers come from multiple directions, but one thing they can agree on is that we need to make young punks toe the line.

For those not in the USA: No, our country does not have a curfew. In some small towns where they have lots of teenagers but no places for them to go, and lots of old people who think all the crime is being done by kids, they have a local ordinance imposing a curfew on minors. Usually there's an exception for work or if the kids are on their way home shortly after curfew starts.

Considering the state of the town budget as someone earlier indicated with the size of the town, jobs being scarce resulting in less profit for anything relying on customers, etc.  A lot of them probably already are living in a run down area.

1: females are often criminals too
2: they had no way of knowing that (but you gave them reason to suspect you did because of 3 below)
3: this is called resisting arrest... it makes cops mad.

Nah, the real lesson she learned is not to walk outside while black.

You think this would have happened to white kids? Hellllll no.


Sure. Because obviously if a white teen runs from a police stop and then resists arrest, the cops just laugh it off and let him go. Everyone knows it's true, right?
Right?

JackieRabbit: "Wright admits she and her friends were out a few minutes after the city's 10 p.m. curfew, and that she both ran from officers and resisted them after being tackled, but she doesn't believe she deserves the injuries she suffered."

What you "believe" and what is going to happen to you when you run from the police and then resist aren't even in the same universe, honey. But now you know.


There are still American youth who don't understand that there is no difference between someone wearing a police uniform and a criminal. They both will run up on you in the night and attack you without provocation. It's a shame their parents raised them this way, but they'll learn soon enough not to be surprised when their assailant is wearing a uniform.

genner: parahaps: genner: jshine: Looks like she had good reason to run from the cops - they're dangerous thugs with no self control and probably will not be held accountable for their actions.

If a suspect is unarmed and not fighting back and you put her in the hospital, you should be tried for assault - badge or no.

Except she was fighting and admitted it.

But okay, benefit of the doubt here. The story in the article is all full of contradictions, so it's not like this is accurate... But benefit of the doubt.

A man leaps out of a car (even a cop car) and starts charging at you. Do you stand there or do you start backing away?

You have been tackled by a police man for walking away from him. He is grinding your face into the pavement. Do you go limp and comply with whatever injury (however minor) is being inflicted, or do you reflexively try to get your arms free to protect yourself?

He didn't leap out of the car and charge her. They talked to her first and attempted to detain her. She then decided to she wanted to "walk away from the situation"., her words.


No, the officers stopped the group while staying in the car and then talked to them as a group.

When the group realized they had to go back to the ice cream shop to pick up something they left, and nothing was happening, she walked away, and didn't stop. THEN the officers got out of the car, and chased and tackled her.

strathmeyer: There are still American youth who don't understand that there is no difference between someone wearing a police uniform and a criminal.


No, there's a big difference: the criminals have to be afraid of police, courts, and prison.  The police don't need to fear repercussions.

If you all just want to say she deserved it for getting 'uppity' and thinking she had a right to not be beaten so severely she needed to go the hospital, it would make finding the right people to ignore much easier.

2014-07-17 01:42:10 PM  
"Running from officers" seems like a sensible thing to do now that so many of them are violent, vicious, psychopaths.

I honestly wish no happiness, peace or comfort for any cop. I hope they end up living in a constant mental anguish blossoming out of the "threat assessment" mindset that they drill into themselves.

Deserved it? No more than most people deserve the beatings police dish out. The thing is, I want to be outraged. But they didn't kill her, and it wasn't the wrong address on a no-knock raid.

question_dj: Recoil Therapy: Rincewind53: You think this would have happened to white kids? Hellllll no.

It really would depend on the part of town that they were in.  The girls admitted to breaking curfew, giving the police some attitude, running away & fighting back when caught.  The police were justified here in giving out a very minor amount of street justice regardless of color (perhaps not to the extent that they did here though).  In a neighborhood filled with expensive houses, expensive cars & doctors & lawyers living there, no the police would have been much more gentle.  However I can think of a neighborhood around here (95% white) where the girls there would be beat on just as much for doing the same as these did.  Of course that neighborhood is filled with meth heads, junkies, welfare queens & just pure white trash.

It's economics not race that determines much of the police actions these days. Can daddy afford a lawyer is one of the first things that they ask themselves before the street justice comes into play

Yeah man, curfew violation is serious business.  Running down teenagers, tackling, then beating them because they were lippy and ran is reasonable response from police.  Gotta show those kids who's boss.  Can't let them get away with being lippy and running.  No sir.  Breaking curfew is tantamount to murder, so actually they should have just shot her.


Once you run from the police, it is on. I don't care who are or where you come from. Running from the cops is the quickest way to get tackled and manhandled. Her face looked fine, so it isn't like she got beat up, she just lost a wrestling match with a cop.

Next time, just try saying "yes sir" and "no sir" that will keep you from getting your ass kick. Though this kid appears to be an idiot and should be a lesson well learned.

Meh, I suspect that most of the people advocating for her beating would also be cheering if it was a blonde-haired blue-eyed girl getting put in the hospital.  A depressingly large number of people like to see a good beating delivered by authority figures.  If cops picked some random person on the sidewalk and beat the crap out of him/her for no reason, there'd still be an element on Fark who would find reasons why he/she deserved exactly what they got.

A lot of law could "work" if they were lazily constructed and broadly applied.

That's a good point.

I have had several encounters with cops in my life. Since I have been respectful and compliant they have never had to chase me. Since they have never had to chase me I have never been tackled by them and have never been accused of resisting arrest.

Cops are scum but running from them gives them the opportunity to put you in a position where their claim that you were resisting will be taken as gospel truth.

I'm pretty knee-jerk anti cop on most every similar thread. But given these facts, it seems they did exactly what you would expect cops to do. Try not running away next time.

moeburn: Capo Del Bandito: moeburn: So if you run, you should expect to get beat? I mean maybe grabbed and arrested, sure, but they continued to beat her after she was already pinned and in their grasp.

Ok dunno how many real life 'altercations' you've been in, but that isn't exactly a moment to 'stop and analyze the whole situation'. If the cops have stopped you and you try to leave, and then take off running, yes you will be tackled, face in the dirt, cuffed and hauled off like a hogtied animal.

I've been in literally the exact same situation as this girl.  Couple of cops saw me run a red light when I was on my bike (well, more like treat a red light like a stop sign, safely, at 4AM).  I had headphones on (again, at night here), so apparently I didn't hear them yelling at me.  Next thing I know, cop car slams into my bike and tries to run me over.  Cop jumps out of car and proceeds to bash my head into metal door, denting their car.

There was no violent crime in the neighbourhood.  They weren't looking for a criminal.  They were looking to "teach a punk a lesson".  You condone that?


So basically, these officers you met are likely to assault any deaf people they meet.  I SAID THEY ARE LIKELY TO ASSAULT ANY DEAF PEOPLE THEY MEET!!!

When tackled by cops, you tend to get scuffed up some.

Did you somehow think they were playing "touch-apprehend"???
None of this shiat would have happened if she'd just gotten in the back of the car and got driven home.

"Wright also said she did resist officers once she was knocked to the ground. 

Yeah, pretty much stopped reading once she admitted to active resistance.


Yet another person who thinks it's wrong to defend yourself from a beating.

El Dudereno: neongoats: Whoa curfew violation, that surely requires physical intervention!

/cops are terrorists
//soon cops will be planting ied's to surprise apprehend suspects
/cops are terrorists

Maybe not IEDs, but IADs.
Improvised apprehension devices. Snares, pits, nets... that sort of thing.
Could be hilarious. Dude's running from the cops and all of a sudden he's hoisted by the ankle into a tree.


Haha, they already have those.  Their called "toys" or "props" or "throw downs".  Or, as you have brilliantly named them, IADs.  They're things like a dime bag or a .22 snub nose.  You throw it on the ground next to the perp, and the next thing you know the perp is up on drug or weapons charges.

As far as curfews?  Had one growing up in my hometown.  Never really affected me, my Dad's house was way out in the middle of the friggin' woods.  I could've danced a tribal rain dance while buck naked eating an Eskimo Pie, and no one would've been the wiser.  The town fathers (at the nagging of the town mothers) instituted curfew because it forced the kids to go home after work.  It gave some of the older village cops an excuse to stay on the payroll long after they'd gone senile.

Also, you could legally beat the crap out of some black man from NYC if he made the mistake of staying overnight here and wanted to walk over to the local bar and grill to have a beer.

Mr.Poops: If this were a blonde haired, blue eyed young woman there would be far more outrage -- this thread included. Just sayin'


I am not sure what the hell youre talking about. 90% of this thread is people screaming "OMG EVERYONE IS RACIST <insert>FALLACIOUS ARGUMENT</insert>!!!"

Including yourself.

/On a side note dont run from cops.
//If you do run and they catch you, dont fight with them.
