But once at the drive through window, the employee said the men became agitated and angry at how long their food was taking. The men thought they were being ignored, according to contacts familiar with the worker's account. The male clerk then said one of the officer's flashed his police badge and pointed a pistol through the drive through window in a threatening manner, before driving off without paying.

I placed this in the New World Order section because this is a prime example of how out of control the police are getting. Just because this cop didn't get his Big Mac fast enough, he decided to pull a gun on a civilian. But that's okay:


one has been placed on administrative leave with pay, pending the outcome of the case.


One of them got a paid vacation as punishment. That's fair...

Only one pointed the gun. Why should the other be punished?

Yeah, it is ironic to hear cops whine about how much the general public hates them after hearing about stuff like this on a seemingly daily basis. Why they don't just drop the god-complex and earn the respect they feel they deserve by acting like decent human beings is beyond me. Not all cops act like this, but the ones who don't won't do anything about the ones who do and are, in my opinion, just as guilty.

If i were a passenger in a car and the driver pulled a gun on someone, i would get charged as well. If it's okay for me to get charged in that situation, it's okay to charge the other cop as well.

They should have just got their lunch at Dunkin Donuts like usual.

And...I agree with you, this is just another case showing cops using their power to get what they want. Its not long until they use it to take over.

You wouldn't be charged if you wasn't an accomplice. If he had known what the driver was going to do, then yes he is just as guilty since he didn't attempt to prevent what happened.

Just because he is in the car doesn't make him guilty. If that was the case then a passenger could be given a speeding ticket just because he was in the car.

I would be assumed to be an accomplice. It's like when someone shoots someone else, and everyone who was with the shooter gets charged. Or when a drug house gets raided, everyone who is there at the time gets charged, whether they had anything to do with the drugs being there or not. I forget exactly what the name of the law is but it's on the books and there's a million cases where people have been tried and convicted under it. Whether or not i assisted in the hypothetical crime doesn't matter if i was there while it was being committed and didn't do anything to stop it.

You might be taken in for questioning in those types of situations, but unless you was directly involved then no charges will come of it.

But its obvious you have your mind made up about it. So I leave you to your wanting a cop who didn't do anything to be punished also.

Your mistaken. There are laws on the books that allow people to be charged with the same crime as the person who committed it. The circumstances of application may vary but it is still there. The case in point is the OP. The driver basically committed armed robbery. A civilian passenger would have been charged with that as well especially because they both benefited; i.e. got food from the robbery.

It is very evident that the years of DA's and ADA's letting these guys ride has given them the feeling they can act with impunity.

The other was kicking himself for not thinkng of it first. He was charged with the lesser crime of 'robbery without use of deadly force'. How embarassing for his department!

Because he was complicit with the crime of theft of services and police intimidation. His silence of his partners activities makes him a bad cop too!

Its in bold because this is a common thing happening. I want folks to understand

This is a police tyranny and it needs to be punished, dissuaded, and it needs to come to a complete and total end! When good cops let bad cops do bad things, that means there is nothing but BAD COPS!!!!!!!!!!


Edit to add that it is possible that the other cop in the car is the one responsible for the investigation .... If such were the case then that WOULD mean there was one good cop in the car after all.....Stranger things are possible

One was placed in administrative leave with pay. What happened to the other?

That is the 64 million dollar question. GTOrick does seem to have his own theory..

This:


Both officers are assigned to Denver International Airport although only one has been placed on administrative leave with pay, pending the outcome of the case


is all the article says about how they were punished. I take that to mean they were reassigned to airport duty, and are awaiting charges, though i could be wrong. I'll look for more information when i have a chance. Thank you all for the replies and input,

It says only one was placed on admin. I take that as being the one indirectly involved.

Aurora, Colo., police aren't commenting except to say they are investigating the case as an alleged felony menacing. Once the district attorney gets the case, a decision will be made whether there's enough evidence to file an arrest warrant and whether any charges will be filed against the officer.

Apparently the DA hasn't made up his/her mind how this should be handled.

Gotcha. I know around my area the McDonald's all have cameras, even at the drive through. The drive thru one is right in your face.

It is a sick thing that I thought of this...but I have...

I am thankful the employees were not tazered.

What kind of society is this nation where I should be thankful that such a thing did not happen in this incident? It happens so often it is the norm. No out cry other than this.

Truly the time has come for rebellion. Just saying that makes me a terrorit according to the DHS. Cops beat up EMTs and wave guns at burger shake employees and I am the one who is a terrorist for expressing my opinion...

What a terrible time we live in.

There was just a thread I was replying to recently about this that got a bit heated, I guess. I don't want to start a flame war, but not all cops behave this way. These ones that you mentioned should be disciplined accordingly. If they are in fact guilt as charged...they should be charged like anyone else.
