A distinction that is getting lost in the minds of a lot of these hot shots.

Cops are human garbage, none of that should be a surprise. There's not a one of them worth a cat.

Only sort of relevant since he's a former po-lees at this point, but Drew Peterson what a pathetic asshat. Sometimes the universe lays a total crap. Some of those get jobs as cops, some don't. This one did.

This doesn't actually sound overzealous but I'm posting it here anyway in the hopes that some of you can come up with some decent jokes since I'm drawing a blank at the moment.

This is a good one. Apparently they're equipping cruisers in OK with card readers to steal all the money in any of your bank accounts tied to debit cards and also it will empty out prepaid Visa and MCs. All the cop has to do is suspect you're up to something...basically, we're back to highway robbery but the robbers now have badges and state authority to kill you.

Jesus fucking Christ. I'd say I'm surprised, but I'm not.

This is completely outrageous, but for what it's worth several sources slightly less hysterical than this armstrong dude (e.g., Popular Science, local news reports) suggest that while the card readers can check and document credit card and bank card balances, they can only "seize" funds on prepaid cards. That doesn't make it even slightly OK, but assuming that's a more accurate depiction of the facts the difference between them being able to instantaneously steal the stored value on prepaid cards and being able to instantaneously steal all the money from your checking or savings account is not an unimportant difference.

Reports seem to differ. This local report indicated bank accounts too: http://5newsonline.com/2016/06/08/ohp-uses-new-device-to-seize-money-from-bank-accounts/

Huh.

It's some bullshit either way.

Police shoot man at Dallas airport 9 times. Man was walking towards officers with a large rock. Was told to'drop the rock and stop walking' several times.
