Only those sheltered from antagonism from the police could possibly think that reciting PUA rhetorical debate cards is gonna work on someone empowered to use violence to do their job.

Not exactly cops, but relevant:

Quote
Night had fallen at the Clinton Correctional Facility in far northern New York when the prison guards came for Patrick Alexander. They handcuffed him and took him into a broom closet for questioning. Then, Mr. Alexander said in an interview last week, the beatings began.

As the three guards, who wore no name badges, punched him and slammed his head against the wall, he said they shouted questions: “Where are they going? What did you hear? How much are they paying you to keep your mouth shut?” One of the guards put a plastic bag over his head, Mr. Alexander said, and threatened to waterboard him.

I think this is the partial legacy of the Global War on Terrorism. Prison guards are torturing inmates and police are disappearing suspects at black sites.

I read a black site op-ed the other month and it was terrifying.

If you don't mind me asking a personal question Samson, but what are your feelings on using such tactics after being told that as a vet, you've fought for America's freedom?

I'm not sure I understand your question because I don't see how those two things relate. Torture and extra-legal detention centers are wrong no matter what someone told me about why I served.

It's not inherently unrelated. People come up with all sorts of justifications for why our troops join up or what even their goal is. I know plenty of vets who have told me they fully do not like what America is doing, especially to its own people, after risking their lives, losing friends and comrades, going through so much strife after being told to sign up on a lie based around helping American's retain their freedom. Not saying you're one of those people who signed up for that reason, but it seems to be a semi-common contingent of vets that view America doing this to its citizens after all the sacrifices they've made and lies they've been told is infuriating.

Using war torture tactics on American prisoners, giving military supplies to police departments, black sites. All of it is a part of what you defined above as an extension of the global War on Terror's legacy. Most of the people I know who are the most fervently against all of these things happen to be vets.

Ah, I understand what you meant now. I agree it is ironic that the US is suppressing freedom while simultaneously telling its military they fight for freedom. I could see how someone might feel betrayed if they believed they were fighting for freedom, but I didn't.

He reported for duty — as a lunatic.

A Massachusetts man, who gave a salute in his shirtless mug shot, assaulted seven Revere police officers after what was supposed to be a simple traffic stop, police said in a statement.

Joseph Parker, 34, of Wakefield, was driving through a construction zone when police asked him to slow down at about 12:40 a.m. Tuesday morning, police said.

Instead, Parker allegedly jumped out of his car and punched one officer, Lt. Jeremiah Goodwin, in the head. He then headed towards a second officer. Goodwin fell on concrete after Parker punched him, and suffered a concussion.

That started a violent spree that included attacking three officers who tried to arrest him, and three more cops once he was booked at the police station, authorities said.

Police said Parker appeared to be on drugs during the alleged attack, screaming “F--- you cops with your guns” and ranting about Ferguson, Mo.



He also allegedly told the officers “I know why you stopped me.”

After assaulting Goodwin, two passengers in Parker’s car exited the vehicle and tried to restrain him as the second officer called for backup.

When handcuffed in the back of a police car he kicked a window several times in an attempt to break the glass and flee the cruiser. Once the glass cracked, he then removed his shoes and tried to stick it through in a failed attempt to escape, police said.

He was also Tased a few times but it had little effect. Authorities also said his story changed multiple times, and his behavior was erratic and nonsensical, the station reported.

He appeared to calm down by the time he arrived at the police station, though he still occasionally screamed expletives. But when officers tried to escort him to jail, he allegedly responded “what the [expletive] are you talking about?”

Was at a barbecue last night where a cop who was friends with the host showed up (on duty in uniform) and started pretending to shock people with his stun gun. That professionalism though.

Quote
Lansing, MI - "You think your job is tough?"

That's what a billboard asks drivers as they zoom by on Pennsylvania Avenue in Lansing.

This billboard with a message was the idea of the Ingham County Sheriff.

"It became clear to me that we needed to do something," says Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth.

As cars race to merge onto I-96, a sergeant reveals the bullet proof vest underneath his uniform just above. The billboard reads: "Wearing body armor to work to serve. You think your job is tough?"

After the unrest over a police-involved shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, the sheriff wanted to send a message to the community about the work officers do every day.

"I don't whether what happened there was right or wrong," says Sheriff Wriggelsworth, "quite frankly all I know is what I read in the media, but I know this, my staff didn't do anything wrong and yet they would get criticism, they'd stop a car and they would get criticism."

The sheriff contacted Adams Outdoor Advertising to see if the company had any sign space available, and Adams donated billboard space.

All the sheriff had to do was pay $1,000 in production costs. The charitable branch of the county's Mounted Unit funded that. So two months ago, the first sign went up on Martin Luther King. Jr. Boulevard near 1-496.

The sheriff sees the billboard as a reminder.

"We hire imperfect people sometimes and we have to deal with that," he says.

And the sheriff says, just like any other human being, officers deserve respect.

"Be a little bit more compassionate towards your police officers," says Sheriff Wriggelsworth.

Used to be called Logan Street.

I think they renamed it because of some secret law requiring all urban hotbeds of crime to have a MLK Jr. honorary street running through it.

Man wanted to be shot by police, officials say

A Boston man allegedly jumped in front of a Boston police cruiser Sunday night in Roxbury and acted as if he was pulling a handgun from his waist band in what authorities described as an attempt to incite two officers to shoot him, police said.

Instead, they arrested him.

“Why didn’t you just let me tap out?’’ Bash Jean, 30, allegedly told officers after being taken into custody, according to a police report. “If this was any other place in the country, I’d be dead.

Bet there is more to this story because as is, its pretty fucking crazy.

Read that story a while back. So outlandish I can't help but think someone paid to have shit done to the woman behind the scenes. Either that or everyone involved in this story exhibited an E N O R M O U S amount of ignorance.

The Round Rock Police Department says on Thursday afternoon there was a disagreement between two male students. In a press release, RRPD  says the Round Rock Police School Resource Officers (SROs) were requested by administrators to assist with a fight in the cafeteria because they were unable to “de-escalate the fight and needed police assistance.” Administrators told police one of the student’s involved refused to comply.

...

Police say the SROs tried to calm the student down but he still wanted to continue the altercation with the other student. “After repeated attempts to calm the non-compliant student, and stop him from going after the other student, officers were forced to detain him for his safety and the safety of others,” continued RRPD in the statement.

An Alabama man recorded himself shutting down two police officers who questioned him for jogging while black.

The man, identified as Corey Dickerson, was out of breath and resting after a hard sprint when an officer pulls up in his patrol car to ask who he is and where he is going, reported The Free Thought Project.

Dickerson, of Talladega, asks the officer if he has done anything wrong, and then he calmly and politely refuses to give his name or state his business.

“You look like you been running,” the officer says, and Dickerson agrees he has been. “Where you been running from?”

Man in that video has iron guts. I think most people would get angry or just bow down in that situation.

The only time I got detained by police was because I was walking next to a black dude. Of course I didn't waste a second telling them they were looking for white guys.
