What the heck is going on with the police these days? And what kind of people are they hiring and bringing into the academy?

I can remember when most cops were well respected and revered members of a community and people looked to them for guidance, good sense and protection.

Pulling a gun at the drive thru window of a restaraunt because you are sick of waiting for your order? And the world get's a little bit crazier every day that passes by.....

Wow...

Thats pretty intense... at least the moron didn't actually shoot someone.

It's good to see a cop actually getting hit with charges when he breaks the law.

Really though, I hope they bust him on the felony... this man has no business owning a gun after that...

The kind without mustaches.

When I was growing up all the cops had mustaches and were much less brutal.

There has to be some connection....

That is even more disturbing IMO.

You might want to read your news story again.

It mentioned that the cop was in the drive through, so he wasn't in the restaurant.

I guess you made the 'crowded' part up too? That wasn't mentioned in the news article either.

Yes I noticed that after the fact, thanks for pointing that out. Either way seriously a bad idea, and Im guessing there were people present because it became a news event.


Edit - there.... I edited that part just for you

According to the article, the officer was at the drive-through window when he pulled his weapon.

There's isn't anything more said about it.

Of course, if accurate, it was an outrageously irresponsible act and he deserves to be prosecuted.

I really don't think that this officer is representative of law enforcement.

Perhaps the better question is, what's going on at fast food stores that not only are people getting mad enough to call 911, but now cops are getting mad enough to pull their sidearms?

Both responses are over the top and inexcusable, but there is a trend here.

Sometimes I have seen two people at the drive through window. One person passing extra 'food' to the one already at the window.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out... It doesn't seem like the other cop told any lies to defend his partner's honour! You think that the word of two cops would be believed before the word of one employee.

Would there be security cameras at the drive through windows?

This guy was having a serious Mac-Attack. My uncle used to have them, ... waking up in the middle of the night screaming for Mac.

If I worked for Mcdonalds I would turn this into a commercial.

I suggested in an other thread yesterday that America should consider replacing it's entire male police force with women.....

(or better yet, mothers)

Not only would things like this ,and other primitive displaying of supremacy, belong to the past but i would make for better viewing also.

Oh well, that would probably bring with it a whole bunch of new problems.

Peace

You're completely right, a cop pulling a gun on the employees at McDonalds is much better then waiving it around in the dinning room.

I seriously thought it was refreshing to hear the pig actually charged. Usually in every case like this when a pig sees red and takes out his childhood trauma on innocents, he just get suspended with pay for 30 days and then you never hear about it again. Glad to see the police force and the local DA doing the right thing.

Day after day after, MORE and MORE stories of coppers doing something they arent supposed to be doing. More and more reasons to not like them. Cops are so damn predictable. lol

F'ing rediculous. I'm sick of cops.

Peace

Are you alluding to some new strain of Mad-Cop Disease now?

Wow.. that man really wanted his bigmac...

Whats wrong with police? ...

To be a Police Officer.. you need two things:

High School diploma.. or a GED

Military service..

If you don't have military service, a college degree is generally required.

So essentially we have a huge police force of undereducated adrenalin junkies.. given guns, tasers and the legal right to kick peoples heads in. To be a cop you should have to have at least a 4 year degree, where part of the curriculum is Constitutional Law, as well as empathy training.. And aside from SWAT, I see absolutely no reason for police to be trained by the Military.. in fact, it should be prohibited unless the soldier went and got a 4 year degree.

It shouldn't be surprising we have ignorant fools like this police officer threatening to shoot innocent people for his cheeseburger..

That's funny. I've been hearing that more and more lately........."he's not like most cops", "you're generalize all cops". Well there as hell seems to be a lot of them.
