You expect me to believe a cop and his union both lied? Pull the other one, it plays stranglehold.

That is still hilarious.

Police unions are just officially sponsored gangs. Nothing more.

Armed agents of the state organizing for their collective benefit is an inherent and fundamental direct threat to the rest of society. Simple as.

Willoughby defended the assertion that the officer faced a suspension by saying it was true that he did "face" that punishment but a commander reviewed the case and decided to give him a letter of reprimand instead.
"It was not our intention to mislead anybody. He was driving with a burrito," Willoughby said. "I didn't analyze any video or know that he didn't have his hand on the wheel for 10 seconds when I created the cartoon. The simple fact is that's all semantics, he was in between calls, taking somebody to jail, he was eating his lunch and he was disciplined for doing so."


Positive the union would defend the officer if he had lost control of his vehicle in those "10 seconds" and hit something.

He was driving through city streets and on Interstate 40 - with a prisoner in the back seat - at times steering his cruiser with his knee while he ate three burritos, one after another.

F*cking classic.

Until there are repercussion when police tell lies, police will keep lying.

Not surprised. The same officer was involved in a food heist earlier that morning.

'at times steering his cruiser with his knee while he ate three burritos, one after another'

That's a solid total even in Albuquerque. If they were the little adovada burritos from Frontier maybe but if these were from Stripes or Wecks...geez this guy is something else.

I suppose APD driving while doing things you would get a ticket for is still better than APD kills another person offhandedly.

When presented with the facts, the union president doubled down on his claim that he was disciplined for eating lunch, even though he had just been notified that he had been disciplined for failing to operate his vehicle safely. And that the only reason they're under enhanced oversight is because of their department's past behavior.

"In an interview earlier this month union President Shaun Willoughby cited it as an example of a ridiculous and out-of control system brought about because of the court-ordered reform of the Police Department."

Cry moar, you brought this on yourselves by sticking up for every asshole no matter what the hell they do. Like you're doing now by trying to hand wave away several things that would get any regular person a bunch of expensive tickets.

That whole article is a giant advert on why police unions need a serious kneecapping.

I almost got arrested at a mall food court Taco Bell about ten years ago for giving them a $2 bill. They called mall security on me, he handcuffed me and called the cops. There were about 30 people standing around, and I was the only one who knew the $2 bill was legit...until the cop showed up.

True story. This actually happened to me.

I can't even imagine what it must have looked like watching that human pig choking down one burrito after another. I imagine it was probably similar to watching a pelican eat a fish whole in one gulp.

I've always said eating while driving should be considered distracted driving, no different than talking on a phone or texting.

On I-40, no less.  But I'd still prefer I-40 over oilfield traffic.  Can't even find a decent drive-through burrito place down here.

Police unions should be prohibited nationwide. Along with other government worker unions of all kinds, but police unions are by far the most abusive.

Nope.  Garbage truck drivers and wastewater plant techs are still workers and still need union protection from management.

Did he at least offer the prisoner a burrito? Because otherwise that's just rude.

So either a private company should handle that under contract, or they should have no union. Government sector unions don't negotiate with the boss, the boss is the electorate. They bribe representatives with campaign donations instead. Fark them.

People hate government unions because they provide the power all employees should have.

Much like defense lawyers for the guilty, a union sometimes has to defend bad people to ensure the rest of us get protection.

So ... fark off, I'll keep my afge membership and you can diaf.

Things that are more trustworthy than the head of a police union:

a comptroller you hired from an ad placed at a Gambler's Anonymous meeting
a former Catholic priest applying to be a massage therapist at a kid's summer camp
your dog left alone with a 16oz ribeye

It's so odd how those good cops manage to elect the one bad apple to lead the union time after time.

Put your union officials and bylaws up on the general election ballots then. Negotiate with the people paying your paycheck, not the grifters promising you everything in exchange for other people's money.

Or lose the union.

Your ultimatum means nothing to me.

You have no power here.

And honestly, you kind of just showed you don't have any comprehension of how voting works. Your suggestion doesn't make any sense, both within the framework of out current system and your imagined one.

You want a general election held for every bargained change? That's insane. What's that, you say that isn't what you meant? Then you meant nothing at all. Bargaining happens regularly, and is the essence of union power.
