WTF over-zealous police? - Page 330

I occasionally hear interviews with the guy who heads up the police union here in LA. The guy is literally unwilling to say that any actual or hypothetical use of force by police officers could be improper.

Psychologically it just reinforces the notion that it's a binary analysis where you either have to believe all cops are perfect heroes or that they're all lying criminals.

Totally agree.

I'm kind of surprised there hasn't been much of an uproar from Autism awareness organizations. You would think they would jump on this story to get some statements in the news.

The only person who talks about autism on my feed is too busy posting charts that "prove" vaccines weren't the cause of the decline in deaths due to various diseases...

You have to be joking? Please?

I have a feeling that they're afraid of not seeming sympathetic enough to BLM if they try to advocate for another cause.

This seems to be making the rounds on facebook:

Today I was pulled over by police. I had a loaded and concealed handgun on me at the time. Please keep in mind that my actions were completely voluntary for one simple reason. This is what happened.

He approached the drivers side and asked if I knew why he stopped me and I said I did not. He said my registration expired June 30 of 2016. He asked to see my drivers license, registration, and insurance card. As I kept my hands firmly locked at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel I immediately stated.....

"For your safety and mine sir I would like to inform you that I am a legally armed citizen. I have a concealed carry permit in my wallet. I don't want to get my registration and insurance card because I have my pistol in the same compartment as my documents. The pistol is in the small compartment under the cup holder. Please be careful, there is a round in the chamber, the thumb safety is on, and there's an extra magazine with it."

He asked that I keep my hands on the wheel like they were and asked again where my handgun was. He asked where my wallet was with my permit card. I answered and then said.....

" I would like you to take possession of the handgun. I'll get out of the truck if you want me to while you get it." He told me that would be great and thanked me for my cooperation.

When I got out of the truck he wouldn't turn his back to me. I asked if he would like to search me for any other weapons so he knew I wasn't a threat. He said....

"If you don't mind that would be great. Do you have any other firearms or weapons on you or in the truck?" I replied that I did not.

The police officer searched me and retrieved my handgun from the compartment with my documents and asked permission to retrieve my drivers license and conceal carry permit from my wallet. I gladly gave him permission to get what he needed. I also gave him permission to search the rest of my truck if he wanted to if he felt it necessary. The officer declined the consent I gave him to search.

After all the formalities the cop brought my pistol back to me and I said "If you want you can just lay everything on the drivers seat and I'll get it when we're done."

I thanked him for being as calm as he was especially dealing with someone that had a handgun that was legally carried. The cop thanked me for my cooperation. He asked me to sign the warning ticket and to make sure to get my registration taken care of ASAP.

I thanked him and the back up officer for their service and told them to be safe, especially nowadays with all the crazy shit that was going on. I told them that was the reason I carry a handgun myself. I shook both of their hands. He handed me my warning and I went on my way.

After the cold blooded terrorist attack and hate crime in #Dallas and that day learning about #BatonRouge where the blood spilled still fresh in the minds of every American I chose to do what I thought was right.

The moral of the story.

It's about everyone's safety.

It's about respect.

When you treat people with civility you get treated with civility.

Thank you Altoona Police Department for having professional law enforcement officers representing your department and protecting the well being of the city.

Wait...is this supposed to be the right way to handle this to not get shot? You have to consent to letting a cop rifle around in your car and on your person over a 20 day expired registration sticker?

I may not be very pro gun, but I'm also not very pro-unreasonable search when someone is legally carrying said gun...

Basically that idiot thanked his masters for not shooting him for doing nothing illegal and willingly waived all kinds of rights. Yeah, that's a society I really want to promulgate and live in.

So I have to let the cop search my whole car every time I'm pulled over?

I mean, here is just a selection from the comments on a text post that read "That moment you see everyone getting shots pregnant and you hold your breath hoping they dont have a vaccine reaction or deliver early....."

I think she got worked up responding to someone who said their kid had allergies...but it was just because of all of the allergens in the air in san antonio...and she was like "I'd read up on this stuff before you say that"



I know you can't actually read the charts in that picture, but it doesn't really matter since you know she has no idea what she is actually talking about (and the one thing you can still see on those very long time period charts...is that the deaths figures all flatline at ZERO following the introduction of the vaccine).

She's got an autistic kid of some sort and is probably just unable to justify it without blaming someone else...Her feed is full of that shit, plus some libertarian shit, plus the occasional weird shit like this:

And your usual plethora of quack medicine and anti-whatever postings.

If you're not hiding anything illegal in your car why would you object to this?

The plot thickens,

The Latest: North Miami police commander suspended,

http://www.breitbart.com/news/the-latest-north-miami-police-commander-suspended/

"A North Miami police commander has been suspended for allegedly fabricating information about the shooting of an unarmed black therapist.

City Manager Larry Spring Jr. said Friday that commander Emile Hollant is suspended without pay. Spring declined to give specifics about how Hollant allegedly fabricated information about Monday’s shooting of Charles Kinsey by Officer Jonathan Aledda.
"

The coverup is always a bitch!

Your car's not registered in Nevada, is it?

Looks like Harvey might have nailed this one.
