    Denver police have not done well in this department:
    -they shot an under age driver or passenger of a moving stolen car in a chase. Generally bad if the car is moving.
    -during a drug arrest they kicked the wife in the vag. She's pregnant. Hope it felt good for them (not).

    the local police department and jail system cant seem to stay out of the courts. They paid significant money out in lost brutality court cases. just ugly stuff all around especially now when everyone is watching. They cant seem to stop.

    I think it was in Finland or Denmark just the other day a 12 year old immigrant was choked on video by a police officer for not having a train ticket

    TheBaise saidGot pulled over for a license plate light out / one of two... Jesus Christ it was brutal. Fucker. No reason!

    In 1967 I was out for my usual Sunday afternoon drive through the country. It was winter, so I was in my car, not on the motorcycle.

    I turned off the highway onto a 2-lane back road, and immediately saw a cop car turn in after me. I knew because it had the old-style "bubble gum machine" single red light on the roof. He quickly pulled right up behind me, tailgating so close I couldn't see his front grill.

    I watched my speed, keeping it below the posted 30 mph, and driving as carefully as I could, right down the middle of my lane. We went 2 miles like that, with the next intersection approaching where I needed to turn, when the light and siren went on. I pulled over.

    The first words out of his mouth were: "I can have your driver's license pulled. For excessive speeding and reckless driving." He mentioned the points for each separate violation, I forget what they were, but the total in New Jersey to lose your license was 12.

    "You were doing 50 in a 30 mile-per-hour zone." 50???? I was going about 28. "I've been following you for 2 miles."

    "Yes, I know," I replied, "I saw you pull behind me off Route 23, I've been watching you following me." He ignored my comment. He went on to say that I was all over the road, crossing the white line dangerously. ummm... no, I wasn't, with him behind me I was driving like my car was on rails.

    Then he said: "You just came down from Greenwood Lake, didn't you? You've been drinking, haven't you?" Greenwood Lake was about 30 miles north, an actual lake straddling the New Jersey-New York border. In 1967 the drinking age in NJ was 21, but 18 in NY State, so a booming business arose around the New York lake shore, of bars & nightclubs catering to NJ teens.

    (Historical note: Greenwood Lake was a reason US Senator Frank Lautenberg of NJ later used to push for a national US drinking age of 21, which eventually passed into law)

    Well, it was rather improbable that I would be coming FROM Greenwood Lake at around 5 in the afternoon, all by myself, since the clubs there were mostly open only at night. And when teens went it was usually with a group of friends. I told this cop no, I hadn't been there, which was true. In fact, at 17 I'd never been there, but did go a few months later after turning 18. The cop didn't conduct a field sobriety test on me.

    He finally said he'd let me off easy, with only a speeding ticket (which was a false charge), and not write me up for reckless driving (also false). I think the fine was around $60, a fair amount in 1967. I was able to drive home.

    Afraid to tell my parents, with whom I lived, I took what cash I had and went to the City Hall of Wayne Township and paid the fine in person a week later, after school. Years later I told my Father about the incident and he was furious with me. He could have had it fixed, and the cop fired, etc, etc.

    But as I told him, it was my word against the cop's, with no witnesses. And in those circumstances the cop always wins, even when they're dishonest. It was the only moving traffic violation I've ever gotten in my entire life. icon_sad.gif

    pazzy saidcome to think of it, i notice how rare it is for real jock members in general to talk about recent day to day topics that are hot topics all over the internet. icon_neutral.gif even in the political forums. i've seen this topic talked about damn near every web forum in the past week or so and here has YET to speak on it. smh. it seems like guys on here are more into themselves or the same two issues in the gay community forgetting that there's a world outside of that.


    World Star Hip Hop doesn't really represent world views man. Besides, who really comes here to talk about current news? There are better sites for that, and I'm sure everyone here goes to those sites to talk about such things.

    Brown man walking in a rich white neighbourhood does make people worried. The Policeman was just making sure that there won't be repetitive offenders in future.

    The cop has been fired and arrested, and, of course (wait for it...) there's a GoFundMe effort underway to help pay for the COP'S expenses.

    you know your in the local Public Relations toilet when demonstrators in Denver re painted red the memorial to fallen police officers. No one was shot in the demonstration as police and city management told officers to stand down:

    I'd rather confront a thug in a dark alley than a cop. I have a good chance of handling a criminal by myself, but a cop has practically unlimited power and it's your word against his if something goes down. I have very little respect for cops in general. They're just bullies with a license to kill.

    One more story in Tempe. The campus cop who assaulted a professor for crossing a sidewalk-blocked street in mid-block has resigned, claiming (wait for it...) HE'S the real victim on his way out the door.

    The professor pleaded guilty last year to resisting arrest: she claimed she kicked at his shins when he tried to feel around her thighs, and pleaded guilty to avoid the risk of a felony conviction.

    That poor Indian guy. I had trouble watching that.

    And thinking how often that happens but isn't filmed.

    And I don't know which is worse. Well, I know, but maybe I'd rather not even though I know I have to know.

    I caught another vid on youtube yesterday that I won't repost, an actual killing, a jealous shooting in I think it was some sort of shopping mall overseas that was caught on camera. The person's friend or family member, whoever, trying to pick up the body after she was shot. I guess to rush to a hospital--wouldn't that be anyone's first thought--but they couldn't lift the body. Blood smearing on the floor in their panic. The body completely limp.

    I still can't believe I saw that.

    This is so in your face now. When I grew up they wouldn't even show a dead body on TV. Now we see people getting killed by criminals, people being brutalized by police. This is terrible but this is what it is. I don't like it.

    the guy's only crime was not speaking english. He actually said "No english," and the cops beat him up because he started to walk. I guess he's lucky they didn't shoot him like the cops did to that poor guy in Washington - They shot him for throwing rocks - maybe the cops were ex-soldiers from Israel and mistook him for a teen-ager?

    These Washington police were really professional - news reports are that they were able to cuff the unconscious body just before he died. Or the already dead body? Afraid of cats with nine lives?

    I've had a few cop encounters over the last couple of years (cops really, really hate suburbasaurus, for some reason) where they seemed unnecessarily aggressive. But on the other hand, we've had a rash of incidents where cops got blown away for no reason on routine traffic stops.

    The last time, this black cop made me go throught all the sobriety tests, kept accusing me of all sorts of weird shit, and wouldn't let me say a word. Finally, I realized he was acting for the camera in his prowler. What a dick!

    The REALLY weird thing I that I'm absolutely certain that, a few years ago, he unlocked his dick pics to me on "manhunt." icon_neutral.gificon_eek.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    Cops have done unspeakable things to White people. Yes, we have it better in general but abuse is abuse. I never break the law and I'm still scared of cops.

    “He was just out for a walk, and apparently someone made a suspicious person call … This is a grandfather who came to help his son and daughter-in-law with their 17-month-old son, who was premature and developmentally delayed,” Henry F. Sherrod, a civil rights attorney from Florence, Alabama, told Al Jazeera on Tuesday.

    I'm generally not a fan. I've seen too much in my 60+ years. I know they're a necessary evil to some extent, but fer Christ sakes, not in the number we have around here.
