Just another case of an unprofessional cop.
Becoming to common these days.
Letting there personal feelings get in the way of professional judgment.

Do I hate the government for several felonies used to destroy my career over exortion and embezzling large sums of money? Do I hate the medical industry AND government for poisoning myself and family members with mercury from vaccines and amalgams, but additionally drugging them nearly to death instead of properly diagnosing these things? Do I hate both med and gov for continuing to lie to all of us about the obvious while spending taxpayer million to support these lies with bogus research? Do I hate them because many believe this bull# and fault me, but I do NOT, because I have very good credentials and experience in research and statistical design, for which I risked my life to get and obtained at great price? If anyone else out there feels the same, then I guess I'm part of hate group! #, who would have know?

you know, when Abe Lincoln ran for office a second time there were many people who were against abe's policies. So Abe had them either arrested or deported....whoa.

If the guy was a real threat do you think he would have a sign in/on his car saying he was? Just thinking a little here.

The guy should of thought twice before calling for Obama to be murdered, I believe anyone who threatens to kill the President gets special attention. There are more civilized ways of showing you don't support the president, calling for his death ain't one of them.

I've been pulled over for less than that.

Been hit with $130 ticket because the passenger in my car didn't re-buckle the automatic motorized seatbelt I let loose when I had to pack some boxes in the front seat.


Thanks for taking money away from me for my own good.

Ridiculous!

I don't seem to recall anybody being pulled over for their "Kill Bush" bumper stickers.


I have never seen a "kill Bush" bumper sticker, but if anybody had one they could reasonably be thought to be seriously threatening the president's life and/or inciting others to do the same. It might be grounds for being pulled over at the least, probably investigated by the Secret Service as well. All threats to a president, written or verbal, even if the threat comes from someone clearly insane, are taken seriously. That is probably why I've never seen a bumper sticker like that.

"Abort Obama" is more vague than "kill," but it could likewise be taken as a threat. It seems like an overreation on the part of the officer, and apparently his superiors thought that was the case.

There are ways of announcing one's dislike of those in power that don't threaten physical harm.

Oh come on... There was no call for murder. He was talking about abortion. He was making a political statement and people like you, the Obama worshipers would like to see him jailed for his right to his view.

This was nothing more than some cop with a chill running up his leg getting bent out of shape. That cop should do us all a favor and go put his service revolver to his anit-free speech head and abort himself...

I live in Oklahoma; more specifically, I live about twenty minutes from Oklahoma City where I attend a college. Personally, I haven't seen hardly any of this kind of behavior from civilians much less law enforcement. This article really strikes me as quite peculiar. The majority of people I see either love Obama or don't really care about our "wonderful elected officials", but no one I know of gets accosted for speaking out against him. I see him as just another figurehead for the virus that is our culture.

Furthermore, the police are usually quite reasonable and amicable unless you're in the po-dunk towns in the outlying areas of the larger cities such as Norman, Lawton, and Tulsa (the cops there are giant pricks). They're not particularly "ticket-happy", nor do they go out of their way to make the citizenry's lives miserable.

This kind of harassment by law enforcement, while I wouldn't say unprecedented, isn't common by anyone's reckoning here (that I know of and I do try to keep up with the local goings-on).

As far as Obama goes, the only thing that shocked me as queer (along with this news report) was the fact that on Inauguration Day more people cried than those who didn't and we pretty much had a free day at school. Some classes, no lessons, no homework etc. It was...an intense atmosphere. It was really quite amazing to actually SEE how many of my peers and professors and such truly supported this man. I haven't seen this kind of "loyalty" in all of my short years. It was kind of scary.*

*I am not knocking Obama; my feelings on that matter are pretty apathetic, it's simply unnerving to see such devotion for a single, living individual.

you know what's funny? I can't remember a single time this happened during the bush/Cheney era. Sounds like more of the Obama=Jesus complex to me. Long live moronic people with power and guns and abilities to misuse both.

Calling police thugs does not help the situation though. Maybe poor judgment was used, but that does not make the police officer a thug. For the most part, policemen and policewomen are trying to protect us, not harm us. I think there are lot more honest, careful policemen than there are bankers, wall street brokers or politicians. Save your anger for those groups, it is much more appropriate.


You've obviously never been to OKC. I've lived here for 50 years and I can tell you that cops here are either ignorant of the law or they just make it up as they go. They are corrupt to the core.

I have actual evidence of their corruption that goes up to at least the D.A.'s office: collusion, conspiracy to obstruct justice. Those are just for starters.

We haven't forgotten about the Murrah bldg. I nearly lost a daughter that day. According to McVeigh's own testimony, OKC was not his original target. Quite a few of us don't believe the official story anyway. It's not just Oklahoma that has heightened security because of terrorists, it's the whole world.

Still, anyone with an IQ higher than the fat content of a donut should be able to tell that a bumper sticker is not a threat.

Saw these stickers being distributed in downtown Boston in 2004 "F***k Bush"
The main idea behind these is I guess to get that "kick' out of carrying these things with you, especially on your car. Beyond that I dont think they serve any purpose. I do not think anyone would change their political leanings by looking at them

I do, I read a story or two about government employees with anti-Bush signs getting hasseled, not like Bush is a hero

Interesting, you realize that someone shooting themself in the head is like aborting oneself and yet you do not see how the phrase "Abort Obama" could be interpreted as a murder threat?

Here is a related story from the past that this reminded me of;

www.infowars.com...

I heard a few stories like that around the time, I think this kind of thing has been going on for quite some years.

I think it's more to do with some cops biases, or an overreaction and paranoia on the cops behalf that any government instruction to do this, as when we do hear of these stories, it's always that the cop has been warned, or suspended over it.

No... It couldn't.

Are you a supporter of Political Correctness?

Is so; Are you satisfied with what you have done to society thus far?

(Some of your kind have managed to Ban farting in elevators in several Western nations. Kudos...)

Hey everyone, good morning.

Having read the article I'm not sure that this is the outrage that it's being whipped up into.

If he was scouting for the secret service, any anti presidential anythings are checked out.
Maybe he's a funny looking guy, maybe he drives a crappy car or maybe he made a u-turn in front of the cop. There are things that we don't know here. What we do know is that he was actively protesting the President with this sign, at which at some time the President was going to be close by, hence the Secret Service.

As for the Secret Service showing up at his house...that's what they do, they check out possible threats to their principal. It's called the advance team.

This guy is now pissed that he got profiled??? Please...this is a non story that's being whipped up right here on good old ATS.
