HairBolus: > 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.


Likely.

I had to take my wife's keys away after she flipped a van. She's been stable for six years now, but I can not take the legal risk.

knackx: 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.


See above comment, a&&hole

Anti-police is a common-sense stance these days.

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


Protecting rich white girls -IS- their job.
They have shown more than enough willingness to PIT maneuver and shoot black people having seizures. Hell, even having medical emergencies in PARKED cars.
But a white girl, that they are SUPPOSED to protect.

Put me on the list too, then.
Being anti-police is not just a common sense stance now, its becoming quite a mainstream one.

4seasons85!: 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.


We're pretty much in agreement with everything you said. I just think it's a misconception that cops are generally opposed to body cams. As I said, that may have been the case at one time, but as they become more common I believe cops are seeing their advantages.

Someone pointed out that police unions seem to be the biggest opponents of body cams, but I think that stems from departments enacting body cam policies without union input. Since these cameras can be a big imposition on individual cops' privacy, they simply want some say in their employment.

Body cams are still in their infancy and these issues will be ironed out eventually. Then the pendulum will swing and the public will start complaining that they're an imposition on their privacy.

Subtonic: the voice of raisin: 4seasons85!: 7th Son of a 7th Son: Huh, so dashcams dowork.

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?

I have a feeling that more Police Associations are against cams than individual cops.

At least most of the pushback I've heard was from Police Associations representatives.

/speaking as someone who's been stopped several times for looking "suspicious".

The tear drop tattoos aren't doing you any favors.


more like wearing a hoodie in winter and taking a walk late at night (break while working 3rd shift) or just wearing a backpack (carrying my work clothes)

bluejeansonfire: the voice of raisin: bluejeansonfire: the voice of raisin: chasd00: defund the police

*eyeroll.gif*

I'd really like to know why police deserve any funding after they collaborated with white supremacists in a coup on our capitol.

so 2 cops (1 off-duty) save a teenager from accidentally causing a major traffic collision with possibly multiple casualties, and your brilliant conclusion is:
.
.
.
"defund the police"

What's next?  Firefighters extinguish an apartment fire caused by faulty wiring, and your response will be:
.
.
.
"defund the fire dept"

You're presenting these things acting on the assumption that the police are a helpful and reasonable presence in America society in general. They are not.


so you're saying in this case that they should have done nothing and "let God sort them out".

mighty white and Christian of you.

BMFPitt: the voice of raisin: I have a feeling that more Police Associations are against cams than individual cops.

How do you think those people ended up representing associations of police?  They just pulled a name or of a hat, and all the officers represented by that association were stuck with that guy's personal opinions?


I'm thinking that the PAs work like other unions, where it's a separate entity from the police and it's a complete package.  either you get everything including the sometomes Trumper attitude from them or you're on your own for negotiations (if that's possible) and run the risk of getting shunned by PA members.

I'm betting that you don't even need to be an ex-cop to work for a PA.

I had the same thing happen to me. Except for the seizure part. Driving is hard.

GWSuperfan: That sounds about white.


It's Utah.

Eldest daughter got a ticket for speeding on that same road. I wish the cop would have dragged her out of the car and tased her. Kid used to have a lead foot. I think the second ticket got her slowed down.

A grand mal seizure isn't going to look like drunk or high.  Now, diabetic vs drunk is another matter...

I don't read it that way--it sounds one that was the only seizure she had.  The interview is not at the time of the incident.
