Yeah, because she was so enthusiastic about following his simple instructions before any violence occurred. Do you really think the "victim" and her
friend in the pink would allow a civilised conversation to proceed?
again your talking to a cab driver. A cab driver is a guy who drives three kinds of people around.
1.) snobs who think it's my fault because they are late to the Airport
2.) crack heads who think it's my fault because they can't find any crack
3.) absurdly drunk crazy violent people who can't remember where they live and think it's my fault they told me to drive them to the other side of
4.) extremely dangerous REAL thugs the Cops put into my cab when they don't want them on their books.
For Five years I had to deal with people like that in my cab EVERY SINGLE GOD DAMN DAY!
My passengers have tried to beat me up, have tried to rob me, have tried to run from me, have tried to just not wake the hell up drunk off their butts
and succeeded for several hours in the latter.
They have screamed in my ear as i'm driving, they have pulled on me while driving, they have tried to suck my pines while driving, they have tried to
jump out of the damned cab while driving, they have tried to drive, steal the cab, threaten my life, exposed to threat by deadly weapons, aggravated
battery, aggravated assault, you name it they have done it.
When I tell you that I have faced 100% more danger and risk to my life then these Cops who hide under bridges I mean it.
I was a good Cabbi because I knew how to do my Job, I knew the who, what, when and where on how to Handel people and not once did I ever have to raise
my hand against a person. Not once.
People who are saying "he should have called for backup" are missing the big picture. Should he be wasting the police forces resources on getting
back-up for a jaywalker? Unless the back-up included a black cop, it would just be spun the same way it was in this case.
If he is going to run around like a meter maid YES!
that's what the law dictates, if the girl refused to promise to appear in court by signing he should have called for back, with a black officer to
professionally Handel the situation. That's what he should have done yes.
But this guy does not know how to be a Cop, As confused and nervous as he looked I'd say Mcdonalds would have a hard time trying to get him to put
the paper down before the bun.
Agreed. Unfortunately, it did evolve into a situation where violence was likely. Both played a part in that.
Only one of them was a trained professional...supposedly.
The message the women was sending by purposely not following the cop's orders was that she was not taking him seriously. What is the point in having
cops if people think they are a joke that can just be ignored?
The purpose of a meter maid is to give a ticket. the meter maid does not need to be taken seriously. Only the ticket.
