Policemen Suck, Part XXVII…

31 July, 2009



From Autoblog:

This is just… well, decide for yourselves. A Hollywood, Florida police officer rams into the back of a woman’s car. Three other cops arrive on the scene and they concoct a fictional story about a cat jumping out of a car, and the officer thinking it’s a pedestrian, thereby causing the accident. They then pinned a DUI charge on the woman. The cops even went so far as to change the angle of the pictures to make it look like the woman swerved in front of the police car. And it gets worse from there — and it’s all caught on the video. One of the officers says on tape (NSFW language), “I don’t lie and make things up ever because it’s wrong, but if I need to bend it a little bit to protect a cop, I’ll do it — She’s freaking hammered anyway.”

All charges have been dropped against the woman by the Broward State Attorney’s Office and all four officers are now on administrative duty pending the completion of the investigation. To paraphrase Dave Barry, only in South Florida.

Is it really necessary for me to supply commentary to these stories anymore or should I keep going on my rant about how much policemen in this country (and most countries for that matter) are no good. Or ho it takes a certain type of personality to become a police officer and the people who are police officers don’t have the right one? No? I didn’t think I had to…



These cops are fucking terrible people… actually I don’t think they can be called people, really…

It Just Keeps on Going…

Recently I told you about a horrifying incident in which an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper interrupted an elderly patient’s hospital run and choked the paramedic on duty in the ambulance.

Fox 23 in Tulsa had had a Freedom of Information request in for the dash cam for more than two weeks. Late last night, the OHP finally stopped stonewalling and released the trooper’s video dash cam.

It’s not pretty. And, a warning–there is totally unacceptable language for a family setting.

Let me walk it down for you. An ambulance, with Maurice White acting as supervisor and paramedic, is taking an elderly woman, who had collapsed, to the hospital for treatment. Her worried family follows.

Trooper Daniel Martin, who was responding to a stolen car report, came up behind the ambulance on a two-lane country road. In Oklahoma, those shoulders are notoriously tricky for even a car to pull off onto…

This is… disgusting… absolutely terrible. But, honestly, I’m not really surprised… He repeatedly says, “I’ve got a patient in here.” This is the 5th entry I’ve had about shitty copes in as many months…



And The Hatred Continues…

8 June, 2009



I’ve said it before… It takes a certain person to be a cop. Usually, its the wrong person…

From the Boing:

The CNN video shows a man standing on a street corner in Passaic, NJ. According to the story, a police car drove next to the man, and one of the officers instructed the man to zip up his sweat shirt (Apparently the police officer decided it was OK to abuse her authority to enforce her personal dress code on the man). The man complied with the request immediately and another officer jumped out of his car and ran to the man and proceeded to beat him senseless.

Imagine what officer friendly would have done to the man had he refused to zip his sweat shirt!

After the incident, police locked Holloway in a holding cell for the night and did not provide treatment for his injuries, according to Holloway’s attorney, Nancy Lucianna. Those injuries included a torn cornea and extensive bruising to the left side of his body, she said.
The Passaic Police have filed three charges against Holloway: resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and wandering for the purpose of obtaining controlled dangerous substances.

The man, 49-year-old Ronnie Holloway, is mentally challenged. His attorney says his client’s neighborhood walks are a “chief pastime.”

If that’s true then this story has accomplished something rare. I would actually get emotional over reading a printed story…

Here’s a video of Policemen in Denmark stopping bicyclists, hugging them and then giving them a helmet. Hmm, positive reinforcement actually working? No way…

Holy Shit…

closequoteThe Houston Press reports that final arguments are being held in the criminal assault trial against Dymond Milburn who was 12 years old when four Galveston police officers (David Roark, Justin Popovich, Sean Stewart, and Sgt. Gilbert Gomez) allegedly beat her up with a flashlight and threatened to shoot her puppy, while she was in her yard attending to tripped circuit breaker.

Background: One morning a couple of years ago, Dymond was in her yard, resetting a circuit breaker at the request of her mother. Four plainclothes Galveston police officers were driving by in an unmarked van, responding to a call that three white prostitutes were working Milburn’s neighborhood. The police spotted Dymond (who is black), jumped out of the van and announced that she was under arrest for prostitution. Dymond grabbed a tree and called for her father. The police officers allegedly beat Dymond so badly that she had to be hospitalized (for black eyes as well as throat and ear drum injuries).

I’m lost for words, really… Like the OP (BoingBoing.net) says, how isn’t this a national story?

Crazy Taiwanese(?) Cops

From Reuters:

Cop pulls gun over scooter helmet violation



openquoteTAIPEI (Reuters) – A motor scooter rider in central Taiwan was held at gunpoint during a traffic stop for not wearing a safety helmet, local media said on Thursday.

After a police car whistled to the scooter to pull over, the officer in Taichung county pulled a gun on the 54-year-old rider surnamed Lin, who was wearing a hat but not a helmet, and ordered her not to move, Taiwan’s Liberty Times said.

A spokesman for the Taiping police station in Taichung county said a gun was pulled because the rider had tried to get away.

“If you don’t pull over, this can happen,” said station spokesman You Chi-ming. “The officer’s action was not extreme.”closequote
