WTF over-zealous police? - Page 224

post #3346 of 6095

I thought it wasn't humanly possible to be a bigger asshole than Ataturk.  I was wrong

Her father is the fucking asshole for letting his daughter go into foster care to begin with.
post #3348 of 6095
Oh, don't worry too much. She's probably in the care of relatives. They call it foster care when the government is paying someone to keep her, even if it's a relative. Hell, dad might even with them but he can't admit it or they'll stop sending the checks.

Why is this even considered a criminal behaviour requiring police intervention? That cop may have been rougher/more of a thug/etc. than other cops but the problem lies in the creeping extension of the criminal field in the last decades. Now that it has become a population control tool more than anything else everything and anything requires police intervention, sometimes they fuck up but that is beside the point.

Spoken like a man who doesn't have kids. The purpose of kids is to warehouse kids for a good chunk of time so parents can get shit done.

If this were so, Hilary/Obama/Alinsky/Sharpton/Olberman would be lining up in support of this mall school cop.

The officer's actions were completely unwarranted in this situation. He should be charged with assault.

Agree with you on the cop, but letting asshole disruptive kids (assuming arguendo that's what we have here) continue to disrupt a class throughout the entire period and not dealing with them until afterwards is a totally unworkable approach.

That you went to a school where whippings were seen as the cure for stupidity is unsurprising.

Well yeah. I was in high school in the early 90s. Also known as the highest crime era in history and even then we didn't have cops at school.

That he made it out alive is surprising, I thought those 1000 whiplash sentences from Saudi Arabia were fatal...

Pro-wrestler cop is being investigate by both FBI and US attorney's office, so getting fired might look pale in compare to possible charges he may face soon.

This will totally solve the problem until next week when some other cop is called to intervene over non-criminal matters.

Nah, this will just feel good to see the asshole pay a price.

The next thing is probably going to be a lawsuit against the school and subsequently a taxpayer funded settlement. Unfortunately, that is the only way to make any progress in this country. There is zero chane of people correcting their ways otherwise.

It is a policy matter, I'm no Ataturk but many of the so-called cop scandals were about cops applying standard operating procedures, with the disastrous results we've seen all too often.

For the record this was also coinsidered to be following standard operating procedures even though it was the most circulated picture of Abu Ghraib. That it strikes the public at large as being obviously not is maybe not a good sign. Most media reporting skirts over that distinction.

That was an end to an erea. Nowadays the rules are to bring children up as pansies. The new rules have brought a lot of problems that didn't exist before. If you haven't seen how it worked before, then how can you judge which method works best?

One of the examples of change is guns in school. Some schools allowed children to bring guns to school. Show and tell. Target out back. Selling, buying and trading guns. Nobody was afraid of somebody with a gun. It was unthinkable to even think of shooting someone. If you think today's method of discipline is better it's time to pull your thumb out of your mouth. Because today's methods isn't working we have serious social issues, which includes killings in school.

They did not "whip" at my school but they did "strap." That was a big leather and rubber thing they would wail away at your palms with. If you didn't keep your hands good and flat, so it hurt the most, they'd just give you more strokes. From about grade 3 through 8 I would get strapped 1-3 times a week. True story.
