"Salt Lake City police officers are some of the best law enforcement officers in the country."

So they're average is what you're saying.

Birnone: Just from a non legal, regular person standpoint, the part of this whole thing that really puzzles me is 'arresting a nurse' part. Doctors, nurses, everyone who works in a hospital really, these are people who if I was a cop they would have to do something exceptional for me to want to arrest them. One day I may be coming into this hospital in bad condition, I want them to either treat me like anyone else or maybe even like me. The last thing I'd want is there to be bad blood between us.


I think you need to put yourself in this guy's shoes.

Specifically his shiny power tripping boots.

Because Mayor's aren't Burgermeisters. They can't just fire cops like it's an episode of Starsky and Hutch.

The cops should be fired (and charged, frankly) but they are still entitled to the same due process that they tried to deny for that Nurse.


I have gone my entire 55 years, 9 of which were in Germany, believing that the word "burgermeister" translated directly to English as "mayor". So if mayors aren't burgermeisters (and inversely, burgermeisters aren't mayors) then what are burgermeisters?

/Wow - That reads snider than I intended. Serious question.

Should be charged for misspelling his superior's name in the report he filed too.

 They actually use the term "contempt of cop", which appears to indicate that they thought this was violent retaliation from a psychopath.

But, he's a GOOD cop. We've NEVER seen him act like this.

So give the nurse a night stick and let her break six separate bones of each officer. Then fire both of them.

Due process, equal protection, union contract.

They'll be fired.  Probably prosecuted too.  Both of these clowns are finished.

After the 20-day period, the findings of the investigations will be turned over to Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown, who will round file them.

Burgermeister.  The hamburger joint next to the original Microsoft building where the now millionaire programmers would eat.  There are references in the code and Easter eggs in early versions.

max_pooper: fireclown: He's a grandstanding putz.  That officer called his superiors to verify what he should do.  What we saw there wasn't a violation of policy, it WAS policy.

The officer and the supervisor were both wrong. Unfortunately that's not really surprising and the Supreme Court has ruled that police can not be held accountable for being ignorant of the law.


Ah yes, the "Reasonably Stupid Cop" rule

wyltoknow: mcmnky: Weaver95: ya know, if I walked into work one day and just ignored 5 or 6 major policies and procedures in place, I'd be out on my ass inside of oh...3 days or so.  But I guess even with massive amounts of evidence AND video footage AND the cop himself admitting to his improper actions they STILL can't fire a cop right away.

so again:

Me: no gun, computer programmer, average looking middle class white guy.  time to get fired: 3 days.
cop: legally carries a gun AND is permitted to use it more or less at will.  violated multiple dept policies and may have broken a couple laws.  time to get fired: 30 days and counting.

You: no union.
Police: union.

I'm in a large national union annnnnd if I walked into work today, ignored several major policies and possibly broke some laws in the process, it wouldn't even take 3 days to have me on my ass. I'd be out the door and listed as unhireable faster than you can say "grievance report".


But police are delicate, easily startled, Low IQ, White Supremacist snowflakes who need to be protected from all consequences or else we'll all turn into godless, immigrant tolerating commie commies!

You're right. It's just that I would know that no hospital has extra staff just hanging around in case their needed. If I, as a cop, drag a nurse out of there for any reason, now they are understaffed. Now I have farked up a whole shiatload of things for everyone. The doctors, nurses, patients...everyone is going to be impacted. There's no way I'm pulling one of those people out of there unless they are doing something so bad the patients are better off short a nurse.


Show me where all that thinking fits into "RESPECT MAH ATHORATAY!".
