do you also think this is ok?

First, in this, the officer was out of line. Kicking your shoe off at the cop gets you against the wall and hand-cuffed and charged with assaulting an officer. It does not get you thrown into the wall, slammed to the floor and punched in the head.

But when I got to the part "We didn't technically steal the car... we just borrowed it from my friend's mom without permission." I just had to laugh.

"I didn't steal the money, I was just borrowing it from the bank without permission."

An obnoxious teen and a obnoxious cop. Bad mix for both.

pretty much what i was trying to point out. as an officer you have to be able to restrain yourself whether it's a full grown drunk man just asking for a fight, or a cocky terrible excuse for a kid.

If that was my daughter, that would be one dead effing cop after I got my hands on him period.

On the other side, as a father id be completely embarrassed I raised a complete piece of trash, but that beating by the cop is way inexcusible.

Re: What's up with the cops these days?

its hilarious that they came back to actually press charges. thats a total a$$shole move by the philly prosecutor and strange one because it will continue to give the story life.

Agreed, I think the good majority of police are quality professionals. It's the few bad apples that make the headlines though and spoil the bunch.

My experiences with cops are a mixed bag. I've had a few encounters where they were total d-bag bullies, flat out rude, and pretty ridiculous overall. And I've also had a few encounters where they were upstanding, professional, and really cool actually.

So basically any time I deal with police (which isn't often at all thankfully), I'm just respectful and hope to get the same respect back, but I don't expect it.

I will say there was one year down in Florida where my wife (then my girlfriend) and I were living next door to a Gainesville PD detective. He was a single dad, and there were times he had to run out last second for work. Often he would ask me to come over and keep an eye on his son, which of course I did. He was a good man, and I'd like to believe most cops are like him, although I know that's probably not the case.

Very true.

I had a bad experience where one actually lied at trial and my lawyer told me he thought the officier was gonna lie about a detail before the hearing got started in the hallway. I remember thinking that was funny cause i never actually an officer would lie acutally under oath. When we got to the point of the trail and the officer did actually lie about a fact and my jaw dropped. My lawyer in the hall after the hearing was something like "these young officers have a lot of pressure on them to get convictions from prosecutors and their head of departments, etc. So they will make small lies or bend the truth. Their human and its an everyday occurance." I mean thats bullsh*t IMO cause it impacts peoples lives usually negatively.

I have cool experiences with cops and really bad ones. Their a couple more bad ones, but the one above pissed me off the most.

“Stop Resisting” | The Agitator


^Another case of overzealous cops i stumbled upon this morning.

I was watching a mini Cops marathon with a friend last night and we were cracking up at first about how the cops would continue to yell/scream “Get on the Ground” or “Stop Resisting” when the person was already on the ground or had clearly stopped resisting. But after a while we became upset and were offended about how cops were treating suspects. Its ridiculous.

Re: What's up with the cops these days?

Reminds me of when the baltimore city police fired about 80 shots into a crowd of people b/c they were responding to a call about a guy with a gun brandishing it at a club a few months ago.

That guy brandishing his gun . . . . . off duty cop who was drunk and aggressively hitting on women at the club. When some guys told him to lay off their woman, a fight ensued and the off duty drunk cop pulled out his service weapon.

edit - the above video didnt work for me

The off duty officer was actually on-duty plains clothes and he apparently wasnt aggressive with a female but trying to calm her down after a car leaving the club parking lot almost hit her. A male club goer saw this and started a fight with the plain clothes officer.

The plain clothes officer pulled out his gun when the crowd converged upon him and he fired a shot (when no one in the crowd displayed a gun). Uniformed officers who arrived on the scene proceeded to put 41 shots at the plain clothes officer holding a gun, 23 hitting him most of them came as he was lying on the ground with his hands up. An innocent bystander was also shot and killed, paramedics didnt arrive for 40 mins to treat him even though it was literally right next to JHU and the UMD shock trauma. The plain clothes officer was picked up and rushed to the hospital as soon as the uniformed officers realized what they did.
