WTF was the car stopped on the train tracks? That right there alone shows negligence, if not intent.
 
2022-09-23 6:21:10 PM  
Holy fark.

Yeah, I'm gonna stick with that being an attempt to "accidentally" deal with someone that's been causing problems for the force.

If I was that idiot's commanding officer I would be screaming my head off for a goddamn week. Who parks ANY car, much less a police cruiser with a suspect handcuffed in the back, ON TRAIN TRACKS?

Attempted murder. Life in prison at a minimum.

F*ck. This is America. Promotion to chief of police.

If you are going to get me to choose between absolute incompetence and complete corruption of a cop, I'm going to need to ruminate on it a for quite some time.
 
2022-09-24 12:11:06 AM  
This is some farked up shiat right there. That is the most incompetent thing I've ever seen police do. How can you turn your back on someone that you think is about to die like that cop did in the first clip? Oh, there's a train coming, I'll just run away and let it hit my car when I know there's a handcuffed person in there that can't possibly fend for themselves. fark that guy,

Well I guess thats one way to get to Dizz Knee Land.
 
2022-09-24 12:18:43 AM  
You know it's bad when the police camera which caught the police malfeasance did not malfunction before the video could be released.
 
2022-09-24 12:20:52 AM  
So he totally gets "Qualified Immunity" because, until now, nobody's parked a cop car on a train track with an arrested suspect inside and then waited until a train came along, so clearly due to the absence of case law on this it's unreasonable for an officer to think that's something they maybe shouldn't do.
 
2022-09-24 12:23:59 AM  
Attempted murder for sure. But because cop, they might have better luck firing him for negligent destruction of the police dept car.
 
2022-09-24 12:24:20 AM  
More like Keystone Kops

Cops park where ever they want, even if it puts people's lives in danger.

/especially if it puts people's lives in danger
//In the bike lane, in front of the hydrant, by the stand pipe, on the railroad tracks
 
2022-09-24 12:27:28 AM  
I learned from putting pennies on the rail to stop for a speeding locamotive
 
2022-09-24 12:27:31 AM  
I believe in a previous thread, someone said the suspect would own Platteville after this.

I believe they're right.

What the actual fark.
 
2022-09-24 12:28:11 AM  
Was the suspected arrested for a serious crime like selling single cigarettes or an expired license?
 
2022-09-24 12:28:50 AM  
"Where the F___ did that train come from?"

This is a true statement.

I've had my ambo blocked by patrol cars entirely too many times.

"Hey man, gotta pull in."
"Active crime scene, can't."
"Injured person...hey can I get your name, badge number, agency, and supervisor name? *keys mic* Unable to make patient contact Dispatch, Officer Numbnuts badge number 101DT with Podunks PD states area is an active crime scene and is blocking entry."
 
2022-09-24 12:33:40 AM  
Was that Officer trying to order the train to stay back?
 
2022-09-24 12:33:55 AM  
Warriors code. Ya'll just don't understand.
 
2022-09-24 12:36:02 AM  
Did they charge the train engineer with obstruction?
 
2022-09-24 12:36:38 AM  
Kind of surprised the train horn didn't startle the cops, causing them to shoot the suspect.

That's what you got out my comment?

You seem like the kind of person who would park a car on train tracks.
 
2022-09-24 12:39:32 AM  
"Oh geez, is the person we wanted to get rid of the suspect still in the car? Golly."
 
2022-09-24 12:40:40 AM  
The worst thing I ever saw the cops do was stop the bus I was riding, put a homeless man who couldn't even stand up, his own puke down his front, in a seat and tell the bus driver to only let him off after they crossed the town line... what made it particularly bad was that we'd just had a blizzard.  The sidewalks hadn't been shoveled yet.  The bus shelters were snowed in.  (A cop I know said this is a game they play between departments.)

A year later a homeless man was found frozen to death in a bus shelter along that general route.

/And yet, this is, somehow even worse.

Anyone want to take bets that after Episode 3 of Andor, the farking GALACTIC EMPIRE is gonna come down harder on that P.O.S.  Karn for his screw-up than an *actual* police department will on this guy?

I took it as snark

If someone hadn't had been seriously hurt I'd have thought this was Reno 911. Now I can't wait until the police release all her pot arrests as a reason that she kinda deserved it anyway. She shoplifted so negligent murder is cool. If cops that actually shoot people aren't indicted then there is zero chance this cop will be.
 
2022-09-24 12:48:21 AM  
So apparently that railroad crossing has a history of incidents (can't find the article that noted that now because no one knows how to archive a story) and it's not well lit. But that still doesn't excuse parking the car there. That was stupid as hell.

Cop will be fired, not for the victim, but for damaging police property.

That's part of why they use quarter inch steel on the engine covers. Don't want to be vulnerable to rednecks taking shots.

Cop acted "in good faith", you see.
Cops can lie and do whatever they want, because they had "good faith" that they didn't mean to do bad stuff.

This is sick and repulsive.

I also basically don't have a soul, so that should say something.

They kill First Nations dudes (and others) up in Canada that way, taking them out to the freezing middle of nowhere on "starlight tours" :/

They could have shot the train.

Engineer will be arrested.  For failure to obey police commands to stop.
