WTF over-zealous police? - Page 41

Well...they did all brake and avoid him. In the audio he mentions injuries, but I don't think any were actually sustained. The 1st and 2nd rider seem ok, and even the cop is like "what injuries"

Also, he saw them and turned in front of them. Since he could see them, I would assume a left turning car would see them and not turn.
Incredibly clear from his very unprofessional discussion afterwards that this guy had a bone to pick with longboarders and went with the road-rage option instead of turning around, safely following them to the bottom of the hill, and then issuing the ticket.

Don't know what the rest of the video looks like since it cuts off pretty early, but who knows--maybe since this is canada, the cop will actually be disciplined.

Yes, yes, he's an asshole too. At least he's no whiny asshole.

Don't know if that fits in this thread, but, damn, did he get an actual 18-month prison sentence for pissing on the Alamo?

This is coming at a time that states are releasing multitudes of real criminals to reduce overpopulation in the prisons...

Bhowzie can you confirm the Alamo has no basement? I've never been to that particular tourist trap.

Get caught for three DUIs in my state and realistically you'd serve less than 18 months. Putting a drunk in prison for peeing on a building is stupid.

Does he have to register as a sex offender too? Some people who piss in public here in PA get charged with indecent exposure and then have to register.

Fake Peoria mayor Twitter account prompts real raid of West Bluff house

PEORIA — Police searched a West Bluff house Tuesday and seized phones and computers in an effort to unmask the author of a parody Twitter account that purported to be Mayor Jim Ardis.

The account — known as @Peoriamayor on the popular social media service that limits entries to 140 characters — already had been suspended for several weeks when up to seven plainclothes police officers executed a search warrant about 5:20 p.m. at 1220 N. University St.

Three people at the home were taken to the Peoria Police Department for questioning. Two other residents were picked up at their places of employment and taken to the station, as well.
One resident — 36-year-old Jacob L. Elliott — was booked into the Peoria County Jail on charges of possessing 30 to 500 grams of marijuana and possessing drug paraphernalia, but no arrests were made in connection with the Twitter account.

“They just asked me about the Twitter account, if I knew anything about it,” said Michelle Pratt, 27, a resident who was in the shower when officers first arrived at the front door. “They brought me in like I was a criminal.”

Pratt, who is Elliott’s girlfriend, said she spent more than three hours alone in an interview room before being questioned by detectives. One other resident, who declined to be identified, said he spent considerably less time in custody but was subject to the same type of questions.

“They said they had a search warrant and took all the electronic devices that had Internet access,” Pratt said. “They said there had been an Internet crime that occurred at this residence.”
Peoria Police Chief Steve Settingsgaard said officers were investigating the creator of the Twitter account for false personation of a public official. The offense is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2,500 and up to a year in jail.

The @Peoriamayor account began in late February or early March with a photo of Ardis and a bio that stated he enjoyed serving the city and included his city email address.
The content of tweets, or entries on the account, ranged from ambiguous to offensive, with repeat references to sex and drugs — and comparisons of Ardis to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford as Ford’s drug use while in office became public.

By about March 10, the bio of the Twitter account was changed to indicate it was a parody account.

Settingsgaard, however, said the intent of the account was not clearly satirical.

“I don’t agree it was obvious, and in fact it appears that someone went to great lengths to make it appear it was actually from the mayor,” Settingsgaard said in an email response to questions.

Ardis did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

By late March, the @Peoriamayor account was suspended by Twitter. It had about 50 tweets and just as many followers.

“A parody means it’s fake. It was even listed as fake,” Pratt said. “It was a joke Twitter account, and they searched the whole house.”

How dare the public think it's acceptable to make fun of their betters. Serves them right.
