That's the 'protect' part of to protect and serve. Sad that we have to celebrate a cop actually doing their farking job.

FTA: "Any officer put in that position I'm confident would have done the same thing to help that young lady," Sgt. Coons said.

Sadly, I have my doubts.  She's lucky they didn't assume she was drunk or high (rather than seizing) and proceed to beat the bark off of her tree in lieu of providing proper medical care.

I'd make a white joke, but depending on where one resides (and much in part thanks to junk racemic mexi-meth (not that clean dextro is much better long-term, but it doesn't destroy the mind and body nearly as quickly as what's on the street these days)), white folk can't assume they'll be safe in the hands of cops any more than anyone else now.

/Was hoping that equality would've swung the other way.

The after care part, I agree, but getting her safely to a stop was pretty good work.  I'll happily grant them that.

Not sad at all.  I'm happy to celebrate someone doing their job well - 'specially when it's no time to consider the options so now WTF.  I'm equally happy to nail their balls to the wall when they get up to their usual shiat, but you gotta reinforce the positive.  You never praise, always condemn regardless of behavior, you get shiat behavior.  True with dogs, true with humans.

I've never understood why police don't want dash and/or body cameras. The only reason I can think of is they don't want to get caught doing illegal things. There have been a few dash/body camera videos that show the police were justified in their actions or that the complainer was outright lying about how the police treated them. Wouldn't they want proof that they did their job right?

> Sarah and her parents say she has not had any seizures since that morning.


It sounds like she's had seizures before.

WTH was she doing driving?
Oh, she was permitted to drive because because she was on medication and hadn't had been seizure free (they say) for 6 months.
And she decided to skip the medicine because she didn't like it, and didn't need it, and her FREEDUM!

She won't be driving for a good while which is no fair because she is cute.

I think some extra kudos to the cops involved are deserved.  They not only did their jobs, but were able to save some lives with only a minor bit of property damage.

Not saying give them each a Congressional Gold Medal, but recognition within the dept and "Employee of the Month", and maybe some free coffee for a couple of months.

there should always be some "carrots" for those who are in the right place at the right time and manage to perform admirably.

4seasons85!: I've never understood why police don't want dash and/or body cameras.


That may have been true at one time, but I don't think it is any more. In fact, the most recent poll of cops I could find, from 2017, showed that 66% of cops approved of body cams. I would wager that number has gone up even higher since then.

The main reason many cops don't have body cams is that their agencies can't afford them. A body cam program is more expensive than it appears on the surface.

But this thread is about two cops that did good. Don't try to make a negative out of a positive.

Good on the cops.

Not a blessing or a miracle though.  Just randomness and some cops who did the right thing.

/I remember a story a few years back about a man charged with murder because he had a seizure while driving and caused a fatal accident.

The rub was that he didn't have a license because it had been taken away when he had a seizure before and caused a fatal accident.

He was quite indignant about the whole thing.  He felt it was his right to drive.

They said this girl hasn't had a seizure since, but the fact that they stated it that way makes me wonder if she's had a seizure before.  If you've had two seizures in your life without an obvious cause they usually call it epilepsy.

De-bumper the police.
Also, good job cops.
Also, amazing how dash/body cameras never seem to "malfunction" when the cops are actually doing good.

Also, I guess those should have been slashies.

I wasn't trying to do that. I'm very happy they were able to help this person.  I've never said I'm 100% against police, I just want the bad apples to be kicked out. And I see body cameras and dash cameras as a way to do this. It seems beneficial to both police and the public.  It can help rebuild public trust and weed out the ones who need to leave the force. Which is why I asked the question.  It seems like a win-win for everyone.

Look, you are pulled over. You are approached by 1 or 2 apparently well-armed humans somewhere you did not wish to be in any confrontation at all. There is a chance that those you perceived as having absolute authority over your life and the lives of those that may be in your conveyance and under your responsibility orders your absolute compliance under threat of violence to fulfill some task ordered of you. Why would there ever be a problem? I'm getting sick and tired  of people suggesting that those pulling you over in the middle of the night may have just found out that their wife has been boning someone else and wants a new mother of the officer confronting you. She has feelings too. It's the year 2021, isn't it about time that this sexist tyrannical and patriarchal thinking be put in the past? Stop being scared and judging those that our rulers have empowered to collect money from us and just submit and comply. It's really not that difficult people. Stop your ancient predjudice and accept the greatness at hand. Geez people, all our problems are about to be solved in just a few days. Let's be patient please and ensure YOUR mask is firmly sealed to your face for our citizens at risk but haven't a fn clue why they are at risk.

Well when Seattle first tried to adopt bodycams it wasn't the police that objected but the public including the Washington branch of the ACLU.  They claimed something like the government was going to use the footage to profile private citizens who had done nothing but were stopped by the police. And that their use would somehow increase police violence.
