WTF over-zealous police? - Page 219

post #3271 of 6095
It's been said in other circles, but has anyone ever seen a group of teenagers that quiet and cowed-looking before? Something that violent would have brought theatrics or at least shocked staring from just about anyone, but every video it looks like the kids have their heads down and ignore it. They look rather terrified honestly. That speaks to that cop's reputation.

Yes, I had noticed how they didn't even look up. Not normal reactions to that situation.

Terrified? At least three of them are filming with devices they're probably not supposed to have, and one gets up and curses while filming, right in front of someone who's presumably a school administrator.

I'm glad he got home at the end of his shift.

And the girl who said "what the fuck?" in response to that cop's heavy handedness was immediately threatened with, "I'll put you in jail next!"

Once again, it speaks to the cop's reputation.

It's also been reported another girl was arrested, though it's unclear if it was the aforementioned one or not. Perhaps he carried out on his threat for the disrespect shown to his authority.

Maybe the cops can just use nunchucks next time.

I read that the girl who was threatened was also arrested. Cha ching! $20k coming her way soon.

I was talking about the other kid who gets up and curses. I guess there's more than one.

That pig needs anger management classes.

Don't get me wrong - there would be hell to pay once What would be your response had that been your daughter?

Probably, because her obnoxious behavior isn't surprising, and it's been ingrained in them that Cop's will kill your ass.

What is this obnoxious behaviour that you speak of?

Refusing to leave twice by two different people prior to the Cop having to be called in. You think this is the first time the school has had problems with that troll?

Agreed.  While the cop's behavior was excessive, let's not act like the girl in question was being reasonable.
