"Would you like me to take a breathalizer Mister Officer?"*wink*
 
2004-05-09 03:21:11 PM  
They did not receive any tips? Come on! Is that the way we treat our law enforcement officers?
 
2004-05-09 04:25:33 PM  
He entered the back of the limo to "explain"????

Give me a break...

"Hey, Sal... c'mon down to 5th & Main... I got me a limo fulla drunken fillies... y'all can be my backup. Hurry up now, y'hear?"
 
2004-05-09 06:05:57 PM  
They imply that the officers got strip-search, but don't really say it. Sloppy reporting when you're left wondering what really happened..
 
2004-05-09 06:05:58 PM  
That'l learn them nosey pigs...

Wow, I got the Boobies-Total-Fark post. (I wonder if the filters will mess with that statement..)

I wonder if the "lady" had all of her teeth? After all, it was Gilchrist...

Now THAT's funny.
Though I have to agree with Rain-Monkey: the cop's explanation was seriously dodgy.

Now if it was a bachelor party and a female cop, the guys would be in jail

...the women apparently were thrilled to see Ross who they mistook for a hired male stripper.

Deputy Cabness too was mistaken for part of a ruse...


Because all strippers who dress as policeman get patrol cars as part of the uniform.

I would have played it out...no one would have known the better.

This was already done in a brand new Simpsons episode (just aired 18 April 2004) called My Big Fat Geek Wedding. where Chief Wiggum is mistaken for a stripper in a police uniform.

At least the writer of this article could have been a little more original.

Deputy Cabness

teehehehehehehehe
 
2004-05-09 06:22:22 PM  
I wonder if he had to pull out his 9.
 
2004-05-09 06:22:59 PM  
It is dangerous to let just anybody dress up and pretend to be police officers. It leads to situations like this one, where the authorities have their power go unrecognized, which is something that we cannot let happen. If this continues, society as a whole may suffer the effects of our maintainers of law and order losing their abilities.

The power that our authorities have is sacred, and anybody who is not worthy should be able to hide themselves in a guise that provides them with such unauthorized power.
 
2004-05-09 06:24:16 PM  
That should be, "...who is not worthy should not be able to..."
 
2004-05-09 06:24:55 PM  
Nothing But Net:

I wonder if he had to pull out his 9.

Once my therapy is done, I'll tell you about the time I pulled out my .45 in a similar situation...

"Today's uniformed police officer mistaken for a male stripper brought to you by Galveston County, Texas."

There have already been a couple of stories like this here on FARK. I'm too lazy to look them up.
 
2004-05-09 06:29:48 PM  
This sounds like a rookie hazing thing on the Sherriff's dept. to me... or maybe I just watch too much TV.
 
2004-05-09 06:32:58 PM  
Dragon,

Can we please have one thread where you don't start spouting pro-authoritarian propaganda?

Please?
 
2004-05-09 06:34:02 PM  
The Slush "Because all strippers who dress as policeman get patrol cars as part of the uniform."

Now if you've been in the back of a limo with friends and the limo stops for some reason, usually you aren't too concerned. It's not too farfetched to envision the officers stopping the limo and the ladies in the back not even noticing lights because you can't really see out of the limo.

Now most people are able to tell the difference between a real police officer with a radio and gun and a pretend one, but if these ladies had several drinks in them then maybe they just were a bit overeager.
 
2004-05-09 06:41:39 PM  
"They did not receive any tips for their efforts."

...I think that says it all.

How is this "pr-authoritarian propaganda"? It's plain common sense. People masquerading as police officers often screw things up for people. At best, they will merely create an unfortunate incident, but at worst, they can undermine and destroy the structure of our society?

Do you know how seriously some people take police officers? Someone intentionally attempting to mislead people can cause a lot of damage. A lot of innocent people have been harmed by them. In order to curb this, we only need to step up punishment for such people, and we must broaden the law. Entertainers should not be allowed to dress up as law enforcement officials. It just creates a potentially terrible situation, just as this one might have grown into.

Once again, it is merely common sense.

I'm not exactly sure what problem you have with me, but I bring up points that are on topic. This post of yours, however, is entirely off-topic, and unnecessary. Do you have an actual reply to what I said?
 
2004-05-09 07:03:45 PM  
Holy crap the 80s really screwed up my head! I read the entire story with a fake laugh track from a non-existent audience.

Cocaine is a helluva drug.

1. instead of amusing, shouldnt it be arousing?

2. simpsons did it!

I am really starting to think that when real cops watched Reno 911, it was as a training film.

Oh, and Dragon of Avarice, No Catch Nickname, et al, please stop. This thread is from a funny story. I really like fark, but I have taken to not reading the political threads because of the zelotry here...If you have something political to say, do it in a political thread, and let the rest of us fark in peace.

here ya go..

1. you are an idiot
2. i can't believe you actually believe the tripe you spill out of your mouth
3. i figure out of the probably millions of times over the course of human history people have masqueraded as authority figures, only a couple of times have there been a case of mistaken identity of even this size, much less one of more dangerous or troublesome demeanor.
4. assuming point 3 is correct, then that is a more than acceptable level of woopsies.
5. see point 1.

But he started it...nah, sorry about that. You're right, I try and stay off the political threads myself, and this story is too good to turn into a waste-of-space argument. I actually responded to him out of a similar sense of vitriol that you were probably feeling, forgetting of course the golden rule (Don't feed the...)
Sorry.

Sergeant: So, officer Altuwilling, you want to tell me exactly what happened when you got that limo?

Officer: I started to ask for ID, but I was suddenly buried under boobies.

Sergeant: buried under boobies?

Officer: yeah, there were boobies everywhere. Before I knew it they had my clothes off.

Sergeant: they took off your uniform?! What about your service weapon?! How did they do that? How long did it take?

Officer: I still don't know where my gun is. I guess my clothers came off in the first five minutes or so.

Sergeant: FIVE MINUTES? That was "before you knew it?!"

Officer: there were lots of boobies.

Sergeant: Geez, fine, we'll talk about it later. How long before you got out of the limo?

Officer: Not more than two hours.

Sergeant: TWO HOURS?!

Officer: well, there were lots of...

Can you guys farking CALM DOWN? Dragon of Avarice (regardless of his other views and other points he had made) makes a good point here. A while ago I received an chain email telling me not to pull over for cops on the highway because of a rash of impersonators who used their "authority" to rape women. I don't know if this letter had any merit, and I don't care if someone snopes's it and it's false, that undermines the confidence in our police force.

DOA may take it too far, but this could be, and I'm sure has been, a serious issue.

I Snopesed* it and they say TRUE. But it was a couple of cases, you're a lot more likely to be raped by a man pretending to be a dolphin trainer (or the "polite one" at a frat party) than a cop, I suspect.

* this term will not become as popular as "Googled", I think

Sounds like some reporter had a slow news day and dredged up an old urban legend that has been featured on numerous movies and sitcoms.

If you're going to make up news, at least make up a story that everyone hasn't heart a dozen times before!

Since when are there rules governing the tone of posts in a thread? The article is in regards to police, and my post was on-topic. You were free not to reply to it, you know.

I maintain that it is still an important matter that we keep people from pretending to be police officers.

It happens much more often than you may think. Some people make it a habit of pretending to be a police officer (active or off-duty), and they stop cars and present false identification. From there, they are pretty much free to control what the person does.

As I've said before, there really is no real reason for me to be on such a list. The only possible way I could have offended you is by presenting a view point that does not align with your own, in which case it is you that is in the wrong.

Disagree with him, if ya want, but for fark's sake, stop dredging up old shiat to toss at him.
 
2004-05-09 10:46:39 PM  
But the question is, will making harsh penalties for entertainers dressing as police fix the problem, or only make "legitimate" rapists and kidnappers more credible?

I feel that those who dress as police in order to commit a crime already know it's way illegal, and those who dress as police for private entertainment have no cause for "punishment" (heh heh heh) if you will.

I really thought your Boobies was sarcastic. Broadening the law does nothing to stop the rapists (that's "the rapists," not "therapists") or prevent any crimes; it only makes more people qualify as criminals.
