At a SCHOOL a map is hung upside down is a sign of what is wrong with this country , and fixing it gets you arrested is what else is wrong with it and the direction it is going .

First off, I think the cop was wrong to cite her for correcting the map. BUT... she was wrong, wrong, wrong for putting up the fuss. All she had to do was calmly take the citation and tell the officer that she planned to contest it. Then, go to court and contest it. She would have had a very good case, as she was an employee of the university, and the markings she made on the map were helpful and not harmful. If she had written curse words on the map, or drawn pornographic images on the map, etc., then I could see her deserving a citation, but that's not what happened. If she had just stayed calm, she could have won this hands down. Now, she looks like the crazy person on the video, who had to be arrested just to get the citation - which won't help her case at all. It's like when a cop pulls you over and gives you a traffic ticket. If you feel the cop was wrong and the ticket was unjustified, you don't scream and yell and curse at the cop and refuse, you take the ticket and contest it in a court of law. Simples.

Maybe the compass was upside down on purpose? Depending on the school, so many tardies equals an absence, and so many absences is an automatic fail. Tuition is still owed either way, and if someone quits because they are going to fail, well that just opens another seat to collect tuition on. Colleges are still businesses after all.

I'm really so glad not to live in the US (IMHO a 100% Policestate). US cops are so extremely rude to people.
Of course not all but more and more.
This week i had an encounter with two of our cops here in Germany, they where looking for a guy with a long plat who was on the run.
I've got one also, so they checked me of course. They where 150% polite and friendly, checked my ID and wished me a nice day.
Thats how i expect cops to behave.

Absolutely RIDICULOUS! She was an employee of the university, it was an incorrect map for Pete's sake! It wasn't like she was vandalizing school property with graffiti. This over controlling officer should have contacted her supervisor and explained the situation to them before taking upon himself to arrest her. This was an innocent employee trying to remedy a situation which caused confusion among the university students. If the map was expensive to produce, have her pay for the replacement cost. If the map was wrong in the first place, they would have had to replace it anyways!

Is it me, or did the Cop say " disface " v deface ? I personally do not find this fiasco offensive. Two petty morons bumping heads. I'd be more concerned with the individual who felt the act of " disfacing " a poster so egregious
it required the intervention of a Peace Officer or LEO - LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER > " To Serve and Protect" the law
makers.

That is one way to get a retirement, courtesy of the local police department. She may not be able to fully retire on the suit from this stupidity, but she'll certainly be well comforted for the abuse she received.

I totally agree with that. He should have just let her off with a warning not to ever mess with university property without explicit approval from her superiors. Under the specific circumstances, she didn't really deserve a citation for what she did. I think a judge would have ruled in her favor.

It's like the cop that pulled me over for turning left from the right lane. I checked to make sure there was no traffic in the left lane before I turned, but what I did wasn't correct either. The cop just gave me a warning, and you can believe I never did that again!

It's become painfully obvious that a large number of people that want to become police do it because they enjoy asserting their authority over other people, often in a brutal manner. I'm sure this has always been the case. The real question is why, with all the personality evaluations required to become police, are all these thugs allowed to become law enforcement in the first place. It's way too common now for them to be just "slipping through the cracks".

Perhaps they want people with these qualities and the personality profile helps them weed out people who are not assertive enough.

University police are often deputized as state police. What happens when you take some idiot bully that can't qualify to be a real police officer, give him a gun,state authority,and a whole school full of people to push around?

Perhaps some of the people who manage the filter, so to speak, also share the same characteristics?

I'll add a thought to that. The college I'm going to has, until this one, traditionally had ex-cops playing ROAD (retired on duty) to collect a paycheck with a fancy Security Director title and office. The one we have had for a bit now is an Ex-Cop that really cares deeply and is full of energy to make things happen. The difference isn't just with him, but is visible throughout the rest of the sec people...who are also retired Fire/Police/Military (a hiring requirement, as I've been told).

It's the leadership as much as the rank in file, I believe. Perhaps much more so.... So who lead this goon squad?

I would also like to point out that this is what happens when you have too many police officers and not enough crime. No murders, look for rape,no rape, look for robbery,no robbery, look for jaywalking, no jaywalking... "what are you looking at? get on the ground you're under arrest!"
As I have said over and over again with crime rates falling why do we keep adding more and more police?
Also, it's pretty self evident that the more cops you hire the lower in the barrel you have to go to dig them out.


For example, a scandal in Cincinnati lead to a huge hunk of the police force having to go and get DRUG CHARGES expunged from their CRIMINAL RECORDS so that they could once again LEGALLY carry fire arms on duty.
The fact that a large number of officers had illegally been carrying firearms for a couple years was just ignored.

A cop with a criminal record isn't a cop. He's a criminal some city (or facility like a college) was foolish or desperate enough to hand a badge to and hope the good outweighs the possible bad in the decision to do it.

A lifetime ago and in a brief moment of madness to follow my father's footsteps, I'd looked into the LAPD. Nothing beyond cursory checking, but enough to see they were issuing waivers then for past substance abuse issues. Case by Case.

Hmm.. Yeah... What isn't case by case is putting anyone with a history of a problem into the situations that formed it, now with absolute and end-all authority over everyone in it. Nothing good ever comes from that...

Though I wouldn't assume that so much with a University/College. Especially with any private/semi private ones. If there is one thing that brings fear to a school administrator? It's liability...and at that higher level, I've gotten the impression the school admin have a great deal more power than their counterparts in K-12 facilities.

It seems like he could have said, "ok ma'am we'll wait" or "you! go get the citation book!" and all would have been solved. She didn't really fight until they grabbed her. I think she was waiting for the TV guy to come out and say, "hahhaaha.. got ya!"

It would have been interesting to see her shouting stuff about "police state" as they took her away.
