In a City by where I live this guy applied to be a Police officer, they told him he had to high of a IQ to be police officer. But I think he could have been a Daaatective.

If you check out history, the cops were crooks from get go, they taking bribes even before becoming cops from shop keepers to get dough to become cop those Irish Cops in NY, and I'm Irish to so.
And the reason they call them cops is because of the little copper badge they wore, hand made. Chesse it Wille here comes the coppers.

I can't wait till the computers become aware and we have robot cops at least you will know where you stand, Death to all humans, and when last human is locked up or killed, no more crime.


First I'm betting your actually 12 but if not I almost feel bad. Just to recap though.

Your a perfect law abiding person who has never done wrong you just happen to have multiple cops throw you to the ground until your mouth bled and then your lawyers brother died in a car accident so you lost your case. Just an FYI the court would have rescheduled you but its awesome how somebody that saw it happen also knew your court date and called the judge during the trial ( cell phone i guess) to help you out.

Then you worked as a gas attendant and a cop some how would come by and fire live rounds into a 55 gallon gas drum. Thats pretty awesome I guess because most cops are held accountable for firing any rounds at all and it would need to be reported. I'm also amazed how they could do this frequently when you said you lived in the city and nobody freaked out. Its also awesome that you guys shipped your gas via 55 gallon drums.

Then for your last post minus the whole terminator piece. You had a friend that took an IQ test down at the station while interviewing for a job and they said his IQ was much to high to hire him but he could have become a DAAAATective?

Did I sum this up correctly? Would you like to add any more BS to your posts?

I won't lower myself to your level of brain disfuction, but in 60s things were different.
And your either a cop or live in la la land.

That is just disturbing, they should change the ensignia from "to protect and serve" to "punish and enslave", just like the Decepticon policecar..

I mean, what the hell, what a reaction. Are they so desperate after workforce in the police dep. that they let anybody in theese days? This just show what psycotic humans they actually let "protect" you.

No I'm not a cop. In fact I have met jerk cops myself but I have met jerks in all walks of life. I have no close friends or relatives that are cops either. Your version of la la land must be where facts add up I guess because your 3 posts don't for me. And please don't bother to lower yourself to my level of "disfuction" .

in another thread i spoke briefly about a tyquan rivera

hes a 14 year old who shot a cop in the back of the head

everyones demonizing the child, and in a way that is fully understandable, as he obviously wasnt a good kid

but we have to step back and ask ourselves, why would a 14 year old shoot a cop in the back of the head


well, constantly here on ats, and news sites all over the internet, and living everyday life, we are confronted with police violence and brutality getting worse and worse.

i think its situations like these that are going to lead to a lot more tyquan riveras

i know if this continues with police there are going to be alot more who are shot in the back of the head by kids, teens, adults just like him

if police want to be safe from citizens, and if we want a mutual respect relationship between police and civilians, police need to truly purge these pieces of crap from the force, too often are police brutalizing citizens, innocent or guilty its not the polices job to punish, but to simply arrest so the criminal can face due process

when police keep breaking this protocol and implementing punishment on the streets, all that is going to happen is going to be a war between police and people like tyquan rivera


should cops be shot for what other cops have done, mistakes others have made, no they shouldnt, but thats whats beginning to happen, and what will rise dramatically if these things continue

everyday that goes by these law enforcement officials are building a bigger and bigger gap against the rest of society, and if this gap gets too big, theres going to be a really big problem

No what we have to ask ourselves is, why a 14 year old would have a gun.
And who the heck would sell a gun to a 14yo.
These are the sick evil pieces of filth we need to go after.
If you let a 14yo drive a car and they kill someone, then its your fault.
Guns just the same thing.

If you walk down my street day or night you might have accident in pants, here the people shoot guns allnight, the cops don't even bother to come.

If you care to believe or not does not matter, the dead bodys laying in street speak for their selves.

And I don't mean to be mean, but the computers are going to become aware, and the people that made them are scared, because they don't know if they will be Malevolent or Benevolet.

And I'm not 12 but my IQ is over 133 that's as high as that test went.

Well the lady was in fact resisting arrest, but that doesnt justify the 4 punches to the face when there are two other cops on top of her. The cop who hit her 4 times obviously was po'ed about sprying himself and took it out on the lady.

Now the lady did violate the city statue of no bike riding on the sidewalk and not having a light on the bike. Bikes are considered the same thing as an automobile and must obey the rules of the roads and have proper lighting as a car must have. That has been that way for decades and is not new.

In fact whenever you buy a new bike from a bike shop, they always tell you that if you intend to ride at night, get a light and have reflectors. But maybe she bought her bike from wally world where the sales people there dont tell you a damned thing because they are not specialists, just floor hands.

Anyway IMO, this was excessive force in as far as the cop hitting her, but as far as having to have two cops on top of her fighting her to place her under arrest, well that might not be so easy to defend in court. Its obvious she was resisting otherwise she would have been cuffed right away and it wouldnt have taken two cops fighting her for over a 2 minute period.



Cheers!!!!


Um... ok so lets say you're a woman, alone at night on a bike - having witnessed what the cops have done to lone women in the past and knowing that you're being pulled over for being on the side-walk, even though after they told her she moved to the road - would'nt you also be a little curious as to WHYY they actually needed to stop you and talk to you ?

Then she almost gets pepper-sprayed and then flung off her bike.. she must have been thinking, THESE AREN'T COPS!! ... I gotta get the f**K outta here! .. she was scared - she didnt trust them otherwise she would'nt have resisted. Is that so hard for some people to understand ? - have you ever been pepper-sprayed ?? - it's no joke I can promise you that!

Those cops were really stupid too, if two of them can struggle THAT hard each holding ONE arm of a 42 year old LADY, It's NO WONDER they aren't detaining real criminals - they'd see their own asses without a mirror. I cant believe how clumsy they look trying to hold her down, we're they high or something ??


I hope those three nobbers develop terrible kidney stones!

if you listened to the audio you would have your answer.

why should the cop leave a person who is breaking the law, alone? all you do is say "yes, officer" and so on. what does resisting accomplish?


Yes but those cops are retarded - just because it's the law doesnt mean you have to enforce it ALL the time. You're supposed to use your brain a bit so you know when to apply it and when not to.

For instance, a middle-aged woman riding her bicycle on the pavement, moves to the road when asked to - it's late at night... lets let her go home.

difference,

A punk riding his bike on the pavement, jumping the curbs etc - when approached by cops he speeds off and tries to escape... now there's a good time stop him for questioning.

Do these cops lack the ability to discern these differences ? if so they really souldn't be allowed to be in a position where a keen eye and a logical mind are required in order to make fair and reasonable decisions on-the -fly.


Idiocracy comes to mind here..

Ah, for the days of the ‘peace officer’, when if no one was getting hurt, a cops main job was to help people out any way he could. Had too much to drink? The officer gives you a ride home, not a trip to jail.

Now we’ve got ‘law enforcers’ who’s job is to extract revenue from the population, and harass and intimidate them in the process. This particular nimrod is obviously a berserker who can’t wait for an excuse to express his violent nature. How proud he must feel, protecting his paymasters from helpless women riding bikes on the sidewalk.

You know, if the PTB just kept things as they are now they could probably maintain this limited tyranny indefinitely. But they just can’t help themselves. Being narcissistic and megalomaniacal, they are driven to pursue more and more control. They want to be God so bad that they will continue to enslave the populous until revolution becomes inevitable. It’s the original lie, ‘ye shall be as gods’, and they’re chained to it like a slave to a post. They are what they believe.

Of course they are "victims"... Did you not see the first "back up" on the scene, KNEEING her in the ribs?! I mean, SHE COULD HAVE KILLED THEM had that not happened!!

Why did he waste time with the mace. Surely the use of his fire arm was warrented and justified.
This study was conducted in my country.

Results showed that this particular problem was of very small proportions. It was noted,
however, that the issues of less severe injuries and pedestrian amenity were not covered by
this study; they represent factors which could receive consideration in the formulation of
policy.
monash.edu.au...

It could be that this police force has come across this abscure study relating to an Australian city and has factored in a policy that saw them bash cyclists. Or, this police guy is an absolute #$%^. Don't need a study to qualify the later though, we got the tape.

Okay, so I'll probably be ousted by most of the ATS community, but here's my opinion:

First off, cops walk a pretty thin line of what can and cannot be done, and I respect them for doing a job that most others won't take. In this video, the woman was at faults in SOME PARTS.

Here's what I would have done had I been in the woman's position:

*COP approaches in patrol car and I IMMEDIATELY STOP the bike*
COP: You know it's illegal to ride your bike on the sidewalk! You need to ride it on the road!
Me: Oh, I'm sorry officer....I did not know.
*I continue standing there instead of dashing off on my bike onto the road*
COP: Yah, I'm going to have to issue you a ticket for riding on the side walk.
Me: Yes sir.
*COP writes ticket and hands it to me*
Me: Well, since it's dark and I don't have any sort of lights, would it be all right if I pushed my bike on the side walk home?
COP: Yeah, that's fine.
Me: Thank you officer.
*I continue standing there until the COP drives away....I begin pushing my bike home*

See? From my point of view, it all went south when the cop was trying to talk to the person and she dashed off....you just don't do that. Take this for example:

*I'm driving my car in the side lane (not on the road) and a COP pulls me over (well, stops me); the COP then approaches my car*
COP: You can't be driving in the side lane!
Me: OKAY! VOOOOOOM!
*I pull into a regular lane and speed off*

Doesn't something seem a bit odd in that situation? Now, I know a car isn't exactly the same as a bike, but we are merely talking about the communication aspect of these scenarios?

Now I will say one thing....from what I can see from the video, he did punch her four times. That was a big no-no! But the extra cops did seem necessary. When an situation like that escalates (as it did), reinforcements are necessary. And for all the people who criticize how it takes two cops to pin a struggling woman down, you forget about simple things; things like animal instincts (when backed into a corner), and adrenaline (giving people strength beyond their norms).

We can at least agree on one thing...he did punch her four times (doesn't look like the face...looks like the back of the head). Should he be punished? Yes (it said he resigned). Should she be rewarded a HUGE settlement? No, not in my opinion. Did she lose a lot of time from work, or medical expenses? I doubt it (if so, probably very little which SHOULDN'T result in a huge settlement). But that's the problem about our legal system (pain and suffering rewards). Any time a woman can spill coffee on herself and get rewarded a HUGE settlement, we have a major problem.

In my opinion, she should get expenses to cover her time-off and medical expenses. Evidence from the video shows that she made quite a few mistakes (looked like she insisted on not getting off her bike and then resisted from that point on). It seemed as though she wasn't compliant at all (which would partly make it HER fault...but again, punches NOT needed).

It's PEOPLE like these (and cops who go over-the-top with physical actions) that make me wonder about the future. I was always taught to respect others, but most people weren't taught nor do they teach the same lesson.

I was always taught that whenever approached by a cop, it was always "yes sir/maam" or "no sir/maam." You can always represent yourself and fight the ticket in court (or if it was your fault, just pay the ticket).

By the way, I'm going to have to check out these NWO bike spys you all are talking about....it gave me a bit of a chuckle when I first saw a post about it. I mean, the NWO resorting to mere bikes?


Friendly discussion encouraged.

EDIT: I need to revise my statement about rewarding for pain and suffering just a bit. I do think pain and suffering should be rewarded to those who did not cause the situation. I do think she fueled the situation by not cooperating, which did lead to the incident of the cop punching her. See next post.

His actions for punching her should affect him. It seems as though he was dismissed (or resigned). I think he should also do a pinch of time too, just to reinforce what he did was wrong.

the thread reads four punches.

I counted 5 and a kick to the head:

There was an initial volley of 4. (hard to miss)
Then a single punch and a kick to the head.

When I learned how to ride a bike, it was on the sidewalk in front of my house.

My parents told me to stay out of the street so I wouldn't get run over.


The streets are made for cars, not people on bikes. You're liable to get your dumb self killed if you try and ride your bike in traffic where I live.

Regardless dude - this is wrong and no amount of diplomacy on your part is going to change one iota of this. And as for you saying she dashed away... if thats dashing then I'd hate to see your idea of coasting. Lets not forget she stopped when he started walking after her - she obviously didnt think it was that serious of a crime, and to be honest - it bloody well wasn't - she was travelling about 2 miles an hour - hardly casuing any sort of danger to anyone or anything.

I cant even believe for one second that people are willing to somhow, even minimally, justify this absolutely unjustified attack. It's the little ground we lose over a period of time that amounts to huge loses eventually. I understand you're trying to diffuse the situation and make it seem like it was an honest scenario/misunderstanding but sooner or later you will have to realise that you cant please everyone and YES you DO need to choose a side at some point.

I didn't say she "dashed" away; however, she did continue on her bike as the cop was trying to talk to her. Breaking the law is breaking the law (something you may not understand). It doesn't matter how "serious" it was or not. She needed to stop, and adhere to the cop completely. When the cop was done talking and on his way, she could have been on hers.

I didn't try to justify how he punched her (as I've STATED in my post). I completely disagree with the excess force of punching her (maybe you missed it in my previous post...or maybe you didn't actually read the full post).

Once again, I never said the punching was a "misunderstanding." I think she should have handled being pulled over by a cop better. What really lights my fire though, is the fact lots of people only see only what the cop did wrong (e'hem, like you)...people don't take the time to look at the FULL PICTURE. I analyzed both sides, and I've determined that the woman didn't handle as well as she should have (you know, noncompliance and all), and that the cop did use excessive force when he punched her. Would this have happened if she would have done like the example posted in my previous post? No, it flat out wouldn't.

Friendly discussion encouraged.
