Re: Joey Porter arrested in California

I don't think it matters where you live, rich/poor, rural/urban cops way more often than not are undereducated egomaniacs who do piss poor police work even if they're not actually crooked. One of the criminology professors I had in college was a retired officer. He put about 20 years in the Bay area then became a PD consultant of sorts traveling throughout the U.S. and later the world. He was very honest, told us several stories from his career where he admitted to screwing up royally, including a time he let a serial murderer get away by mistake.

But the most notable thing that guy ever told us is the best thing that can ever happen to a police dept and the community it serves is lots and lots of legal action. It was actually pretty shocking to hear this but basically he reasoned that police work is just sloppy and stupid unless scrutinized. He talked about all the law suits against the LA PD as a good example.

In another class we had a ACLU lawyer in as a guest speaker. He had fought police corruption his entire career, told us about a lot of his cases and the bullshit that goes on within law enforcement. I think that was the only time I ever considered a law degree...sometimes wish I had done it.

Someone who carries a gun and a nightstick should be held to higher standards. And they should be enforced.
I would guess he was just being himself, which means he was probably running his trap.

Everytime you see a cop doing something out of line, pull out the cell phone and start shooting.

In my opinion, there are many good police officers, but just as many boneheaded bullies who signed up to be a cop because they wanted the power to bully people and be "in control". Keep the departments on their toes and eventually, the disciplinary system will weed out the bad apples. It is a thousand times better today than in the 70s and 80s where most major metro police departments were as crooked as the criminals they were busting.

Porter, (and others) should realize that you just can't back-talk or ignore an order from a cop (good or bad one), and expect them to blow it off. They will come after you. Sounds like Porter didn't feel like "subordinating" himself to an authority figure and got a night on a cold piece of concrete because of it.
Agreed we all have a little police of the police in our pockets now a days. Use the video function on your cell phone if you see abuse happening near you. Then report it with the video.

Assaulting an officer? Goodbye Joey. We won't see you for a while.

Re: Joey Porter arrested in California

i thought joey porter was a passenger in a car that was pulled over outside a taco bell. when you get pulled over after midnight and the cops smell alcohol, everyone gets asked for id and to step out of the car.

slapping the hand of an officer is assault, especially if it is done after you have failed to comply with an officer's request.

another point, our FO did offer him a contract, so they did want him on our team.

Porter and his buddy were leaving a bar or something like that, in separate cars. His buddy was pulled over for alleged drunk driving, Porter pulled up right behind the cop car to see what was going on and that's when the cop smelled alcohol on Porter's breath.

And contract talks is not necessarily the same thing as offering a contract

I know that Simms guy (can't remember his first name) from SF was offered a contract. Best I can recall, Porter and the Redskins spoke about a contract, but it was obvious from the get go all he wanted was to play for the Cardinals. I don't think there was serious interest on either side really.

Re: Joey Porter arrested in California

i understand that there are some bad cops out there, but that doesn't mean that ALL of them are. regardless, it doesnt give anyone the right to disobey a police officer. if a cop has a power trip, then why on earth would you act in such a way to disrespect him? thats just asking for trouble. if a cop tells you to get out of the car, you do it. if you physically assault a police officer in any way (whether its slapping a hand or spitting on him or anything more severe), then 1) you're an idiot and 2) you're lucky if you dont get the crap beat out of you.
