How do you tell the difference? I was a police officer for 12 years and I never was able to tell at a glance.... enlighten me

How about after you spent ten minutes with a flashligh in their face without them murdering you?
Did that ever help you out? Then again there are POs and then there are investigators.

Ten minutes huh? Guess there was a time warp going on as that entire video was not 10 minutes long....
Did a stopwatch or clock ever help you out? Then again there are those living in their own little world and then there are the rest of us.

10 minutes... dude can't count but expects to be taken seriously


Oh yeah- my question still stands unanswered.

I find it unbelievable that anyone supports this criminal activity. Aren't we a country that claims to believe in equality? Do I have the ability to demand that the police don't film me or to adjust where they are standing by claiming safety concerns? No??? Well then neither do they.

It's sad that some people have such low self esteem, lack of dignity, and self worth that they have resigned to think and act like peasants and slaves.






The SCOTUS needs to hear a case and make a decision on this.


And this line of thinking is exactly what I'm talking about.

Think what you may but it is the only way you will get the police to stop this activity on innocent people.

That's the reality of it.

If I was a pot smoker she could possibly swap a dooby for a dollar.


How do you identify this one as a murderer?

If she killed me,I`d know.If only for a brief moment.Though have never feared of being murdered throughout my life,if I did then I guess I`d never leave the safety of my home and mingle with the citizens or I`d become a police officer and treat everyone as a potential murderer/criminal every time I put on the badge and especially toward those who didn`t worship the ground I worked on.


How do you identify this one as a pedophile?

Oh! to be 15 again,and be a willing victim to her.
then I`d know.

In the context of the situation of the video,she was treated as such regardless if she wasn`t.Those ever so frequent teatments of everyday citzens is why there is so much disrespect,mistrust and straight out hatred of Law enforcement mainly in the US.

I have worked along side police officers and have (and known) friends who are police officers.So should my thoughts on the subject be discounted in your opinion because you were a police officer?

Because its coming across as a bit of a boast.

Enlighten you? got a match?

Trade a doob for a dollar- just blew beer out my nose


I'm with ya on LaFave too... that ain't a crime it's bragging rights


My point was that you can't tell what is on someone's mind or what their intentions are by looking at them, whether or not they are standing on their lawn nor whether or not they use photographic equipment. In most cases appearances are deceiving- think Ted Bundy and John Gacy. Both were normal- even handsome. Both had regular jobs and were considered pillars of the community but they were all out nuts.

In this case the woman was just looking for her 15 minutes and a payout IMO. I've stated that I wouldn't have arrested her based on what I was seeing but rather that her actions could have been construed as posing a threat. Not justifying the officer's actions- just adding input from a BTDT.

And I do wish being a meddling c*nt was an arrestable offense- it'd take care of my mother in law right quick and give me some peace

Thats all fine and dandy,but this is about one police officers opinion,the one in the vid as she didn`t bother the other officers on the scene just him.

Ahh yes,here`s what we did which maybe of some help to you?

We locked the front door as she was coming over and waived her goodbye through the front window.Shoulda seen her face,it was a picture.


Sometimes we have to get blunt for people to wake up.

Her actions wouldn't have bothered me all that much either.

Then again I wasn't there and am not familiar with the woman in question but it seems like 99% of the Rochester police department knows her quite well


I still believe the original arrest was payback for her other activities though. If ya pee in someone's cornflakes often enough you're gonna have your pee pump spanked (not you but people in general)... Words of wisdom from my grandfather

Police should not be allowed to enforce their personal annoyances.

A step in the right direction in the UK....www.abovetopsecret.com...

I'm not saying they should be allowed to.

What I am saying is eventually it's going to happen- no matter the profession. Human nature can only be overcome to a certain extent- it's just that police officers have the ability to do a LOT more damage than the average citizen. Have an ongoing dispute with your neighbor he might punch you- have one with the local LEO and if his head isn't screwed on straight your life is a living hell.

I'll go one further and say that an officer can articulate just about anything to fit the elements of a crime and that is where the discretion comes in as well as knowing you are a peace officer and not law enforcement- or at least have a Sergeant or Lieutenant who realizes that.

I can't tell you how many 4 wall counseling sessions I had with badge heavy rookies

Hense the lady with the camera.

Hopefully more people start independently recording these type of events,in a bid to keep them honest.

What I would really like to see is officers handling problems BEFORE they got to the point of someone needed to record their actions.

It's what a good E6 would do with an out of line Private- drag them out back or into the team room and beat the stuffing out of them until the program of instruction was drilled into their 4th point of contact with sufficient force for it to stick. Worked in the military and it'd work wonders with police & sheriffs.

Not gonna happen though- that's too common sense an answer

This makes me think that it may not have been a coincident that the car was stopped right in front of her house.
As we have all seen the Rochester police are not above abusing their power to harass people. The little ticket writing party in from of the meeting for her support is an example.

It is essentially the driver of the vehicle being pulled over as to where to stop. It's not like lights go on and the vehicle comes to a screeching halt. I've wished on occasion it DID work that way


I'd hazard a guess that the driver stopped where he could and the woman saw an opportunity to record some cops. Unfortunately the one she picked to tape was an a$$hat. Actually the taping of the traffic stop as well as the subsequent ticketing incident is a good thing as it brings to light a department that IMO needs to be brought down a few pegs.

I'm not saying EVERY officer in the department is badge heavy but there are at least 5 of them from what I can see.

Very sad video........cop didn't have control of his own emotions, that could lead him to shooting someone on emotion one day, I'd like to see him put on desk duty or transferred to a different state job that does not allow him to carry a firearm.

Dear Anon72,
Thanks for the story!

One thing strikes me in this, it is something the cop says to her "You are not listening to our orders" Kind of says it all really. Orders? Well that pretty much confirms that from a cop's point of view, they are part of a fascist state.

Here in the UK our police force have just been told they cannot arrest anyone for using abusive language at them, and imo.. rightfully so. Being a police officer does not mean you are suddenly made of paper and "offended" more than any other human being by being called names, or cussed at. I am guessing in the US that'd buy you a ticket to cell ville quite quickly however.

Nothing much more that I can say other than i'm glad I don't live in the US, and before some of you go all nationalistic on me, it's not a slight on the American people, it's a slight on the American governement and it's police state.

For anyone who is following the story. Today is the big day. Court.

I saw this interview of her (Emily Good) from yesterday.

You will have to go to the site to watch:

Activist Emily Good stunned by fallout from video

Good said she grabbed the video camera in an attempt to illustrate examples of what she considers racial profiling in the 19th Ward, where she lives. "I see it all of the time," she said.
