Tell you what amazes me, well not really amaze me as in 'I can't believe that happened' but amazes me in the sense of 'how freaking stupid can you
be'.... they are busting the chops and arresting a guy who made a joke as he was moving along, but completely ignore the crackhead walking in the
This is why people can't stand cops. It's the sheer hypocrisy that the regular Joe sees day in and day out. Police ignore the neighborhood crackhead,
but arrest and mess with a guy who actually broke no law. You can even hear it in the video, he was charged or at least told he was being charged with
"interference", but how do you interfere with a cop who is in his vehicle when your several feet away?? The suspect was not stopping the cop from
questioning, issuing a ticket, or anything. He was just standing off to the side running his mouth. Last time I checked, that was not against the law.
So again we have a completely victimless crime that resulted in an arrest that our tax dollars paid for.
This is why people, much like myself, do not trust police. That is why, when push comes to shove, people like me will stand up and crack Officer
Friendly in his mouth if the opportunity ever were to present itself. Not only did Officer Friendly ignore the crackhead wandering aimlessly in the
middle of the street while he was arresting someone who did not break the law, but he had 4-5 other Officers watching him do it and supporting his
decision to arrest a person who was not breaking any law.
The same mentality that causes a police officer to support another officer when he is clearly in the wrong, is the same mentality the general public
has, and it will only take a spark to ignite the fire. The more they keep pushing, the more the conditions are right for that little spark to ignite a
fire that can not be controlled.
