"A 56-year-old Kankakee man was arrested Monday after he allegedly refused to stop smoking in a bar, and then put the responding Kankakee police
officer in a headlock.
Mark A. Randall was charged with several offenses, including aggravated battery, disarming an officer and resisting arrest. The incident occurred at a
bar in the 500 block of South Washington Avenue.
According to a police report, the responding officer, who was dispatched at 3:26 p.m., attempted to use a baton to ward off Randall.
Instead, Randall placed the officer in a headlock.
On his way to the county jail, Randall allegedly said he would give the officer $10,000 to let him go."
I want to be clear here, I’m not attempting to slam Police Officers as an entire group. Many “groups” are judged here, which absolutely cannot
be held responsible for the actions of a few, any more than as a white man, I wish to be held responsible for the slavery of African Americans. Most
of my family were not even here yet at that time.
Anyhoo, point is, we have a very limited set of choices when it comes to viewing this particular situation:
Here are the only 4 possibilities I can see:
A - This officer is EXCEPTIONAL at his job. He did everything he was supposed to do and the mission was accomplished. The goal was to be headlocked
by an old drunk.
2 - He had a bad day. Sometimes a 54 year old can take you by surprise, even if he’s a drunk smoker. “I guess it’s not so bad for your health
after all, but the law is the law, and don’t you dare ask why or I’ll try to arrest you, please don’t put me in a headlock for doing so, because
I am more out of shape than your 54 year old drunken smoking carcass of a body.”
D - $4!+ happens?
1 - Fired immediately. What DIDN”T happen in the officers’ training? Fire the trainer too. Seriously.
If anyone has a letter 3 or a number F to add, please post immediately.
