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

About that canton ohio CCW video.

Ive found that when your driving through known drug and prostitute areas late at night, officers tend to assume every person is a john, drug user or has a warrant for their arrest.

Also, unfortunately for the way this world operates, there was a black guy in the back seat.

I dont find the officers conduct all that surprising, ive certainly seen worse on the internet. I had a female montgomery county officer run across a room and elbow me in the head while i was handcuffed to a metal table . . i was 15.

rights are violated all the time on a sliding scale depending on who you are, your race, your location, time of day, type of car you drive etc . . .

The cops just look......guilty of something when they react like that, which is pretty much all the time.

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

I got nothing against most cops. I actually like most of the Richmond City cops ive met, they are pretty decent.

What I have a problem with is that cops have a lot of power in negatively affecting your life and most people blindly accept that cops are always going to do the right thing. I was pulled over about 3 or 4 years ago for Improper Lane Change, I was on my way to play paintball early on a Saturday morning. Ill admit that the attire of a person that seldom plays paintball is suggestive of a meth-head but the police officer flat out treated me like shit. Then the cop straight up lied in court. Just flat out made things up as he read out of his log from the traffic stop. I guess my insurance has gone up because of that.


My point is that when a cop has a bad day and behaves poorly its becomes malicious. They are harming people’s lives. Traffic court is a absolute joke; without a lawyer you have the option to plead guilty and ask for leniency or be found guilty no matter what you or any of your witnesses say because what the cop says caries so much more weight. Most other courts seem largely the same. Cops are given way too much power and unfortunately theyre just like us; they feel pressure from their bosses, they get tired of doing the same thing and dealing with the same people, some cops are just as bad as your crazy cowoker, and they all have bad days. And because of that a lot of people get screwed over in court, treated like shit, beat up, elbowed to the face, or even killed. Its not just 1 bad cop giving all cops a bad name, it’s almost every single cop that occasionally has a bad day and screws with people’s lives in addition to the few crazy cops that have 16 internal affairs investigations and are still somehow still on the force.

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

i hear ya mlm. most officers are good, some are bad. Dc used to have this program where officers would get a bonus for every illegal gun they brought in off the street. This one "cop", who was subsequently fired for a whole bunch of excessive force violations, would just pull any random person over in SE. He would search the car without consent, if he found a gun, he arrested you and collected his bonus.

if he didnt find a gun, he'd let you go. Unfortunately, people who get let go dont report it b/c they dont want to waste their time or hassle.

it was a few months before my 21st, my 21 year old friends went into rollins beer in rockville while i, the driver, stayed in the car. I saw a "cop" sitting in the 7-11 parking lot across teh street. My buddies put the beer in my trunk and we pulled out. the cop pulled out right behind me. I was doing exactly the speed limit, knew he was going to pull me over. got close to the 270 on ramp and he pulle dme over, said i was speeding. I looked him dead in teh eye and said i saw you behind me the whole time, i wasnt speeding.

sucked i blew something like a .04 and got an alcohol violation b/c i wasnt 21 yet.

couldnt believe this cop said that, straight lie and that was to a respectable looking white boy in rockville. cant imagine what goes on to black guys in SE or baltimore. I wonder if the cop did it b/c 2 of my friends in the car were black. got pulle dover in DC just for that reason, mix of black and white guys. cop atleast was honest and said he pulle dus over b/c that usually means the black dudes are taking the white dudes to get drugs in DC.

Angry Canton Police Officer Daniel Harless Threatens William Bartlett Suspended | TheBlaze.com
The cop in questions is now up to 18 Internal Affair investigations, and is still up to his old ways..... Seriously how hard is it to remove a bad cop????

Quote:
Remember Officer Daniel Harless, the Canton, Ohio, police officer who was caught on video threatening to kill citizens? Well, he’s back in a new video that some say corroborates the notion that he has abused his power and built a track record of violent threats.

Officer Daniel Harless and his partner pull a car over for no apparent reason. After interrogating the passengers inside about their activities, you hear Harless threaten one passenger.

A police officer’s voice (it appears to be Harless’) can be heard saying, “If you scratch you balls wrong, I’m going to pull my gun and I am going to shoot you.” Below, watch the recently-released dashboard video (the death threat can be heard around 4:50):

As it turns out, Harless is no stranger to internal affairs investigations. He’s apparently been cleared of 18 of them since 2001. But despite these issues, Chief Dean McKimm has claimed that “there was no evidence Harless was a problem.”

Cops take care of their own. It's unfortunate but it'll always be like that.

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

Read this story, and be infuriated.

Quote:
CBS Atlanta News has obtained more than 500 pages of internal affairs complaints lodged against Clayton County police officer Michael Hobbs in the last five years.

Chief Investigative Reporter Wendy Saltzman found dozens of use-of-force reports brushed aside by Clayton County internal affairs, including claims Hobbs is terrorizing citizens.

One of those citizens is Brian Hoolihan. Hoolihan passed out in his car along side a road in Clayton County in a diabetic coma back in 2007. He had a sticker on the window of his car, warning about his life threatening medical condition.

A police report shows Officer Hobbs arrived at the scene and wrongfully assumed Hoolihan was drunk. Hobbs forced himself into the car and struck Hoolihan twice with a closed fist to the face and another blunt elbow blow to his head.

Superior police officer keeps job, faces suspension after admitting to theft | Superior Telegram | Superior, Wisconsin

Quote:
A Superior police officer won’t lose his job after admitting he stole more than $5,000 from fellow officers in the department.

Attorney Rick Gondik, representing Babic, presented numerous cases in which officers did something out of character, in most cases resulting in criminal charges that didn’t lose their jobs despite the illegality of their actions.

Among them a police captain who admitted to drinking and driving when he was involved in a hit and run, an officer accused of an incident of road rage, an officer who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after a charge of domestic abuse fifth-degree was dismissed, and an officer found guilty of providing false statements in court 17 years ago. Then-Police Chief Doyle Barker had sought termination, but the commission opted for suspension and training.

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

Was the Grandfather Left Bloody by Police at Arizona Walmart Really Resisting Arrest? | Jerald Allen Newman | Video | TheBlaze.com

Quote:
However, a CNN reporter who happened to be in the crowd Thursday says Newman “was not resisting” arrest as he was led away from the crowd by a police officer:

“That officer, Chadd said, then suddenly hooked the suspect around the leg, grabbed him and ‘slammed him face first into the ground.’

‘It was like a bowling ball hitting the ground, that’s how bad it was,’ he said.”
I like the show Cops, but one thing that really makes me upset is when cops knock the crap out of a suspect for no reason. It usually happens when they do drug set ups. The undercover cop will buy or sell drugs and then as the suspect is walking away a bunch of cops will swarm a suspect. The suspect is caught by surprise and usually just stands there and then a cop will just tackle the shit out of him from behind.

Look i get someone is running away, reaching for something, looking like they might act aggressively or resisting but there is no reason to just tackle the shit out of someone that just committed a minor and non violent crime. Its ridiculous.

Prime example from a show i remember watching:

Cops unnecessary tackle - YouTube
