If I break the law while at my job, I will get fired and prosecuted. Cops take an oath as part of their job to uphold the law. Where is this line of questioning going? And why can't you answer the simple question - should they have been given a speeding ticket at minimum?

Here is an example of what is considered "assault" by the police. How funny is that?

Are you serious? Police are SUPPOSE TO set an example, as well as be mature enough to know that this could have ended up badly. If anyone else did this they would be jailed and pay big fines loss of drivers license. You cannot do your job as an officer with out a drivers license.

No i don't want an execution for them, they got what they deserve. I posted this just to show the quality of police being hired today.

The executions I will save for the treasonous ones Of the democratic government when proven in court.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

My point exactly. Taking some sort of umbrage about their not being ticketed in addition to losing their jobs is ridiculous. They did something stupid. They got fired. Move on.

Smart asses. It's NOT funny. It's NOT a joke. I would bet my entire years worth of income that every cop off duty in that car had some sort of intoxicant in his system.

Worked with lots of cops. Heard about chases, wrecked personal vehicles and what should have been a DUI, but instead was an escort home.

Biggest gang in the US. Wear their colors. Compete over territory. Most assuredly have an "us vs them" attitude. I can comfortably state 80-90% are as crooked as the folks they arrest.

Don't trust 'em. Never have. Never will.

Wow. Outstanding logic. You must be a cop. Why should they be any different than any one else? Here is an example. At one of my last jobs the "storage clerk" was caught stealing - they were fired and they called the cops and she was arrested for theft. What did she steal? PENS and PAPER. Why? Because firing someone is NOT the answer to breaking the law. They are two different things entirely. By your logic Bernie Madoff should be walking free. Wow. And after asking me repeated questions that I answered you didn't have the respect to answer me. And you are a super mod. Wow.

No because they don't know you...you were not a co-worker. No offense but I'm willing to give a friend or co-worker a little more of a break then I would some random. Even though the decision is not a good one. I'm not going to rip apart someone for a bad decision. You're also missing the point here as well...they lost their jobs. So no break was given.

Ah, yeah. Again, how one could find it funny is beyond me. Where is the humor? I suppose if your idea of funny is watching people break bones, criminals being stupid, etc than I guess you have a point.

CJ


I do have a sense of humor and live a happy life...you should try it, laughter can go a long ways. Quit taking things so serious. What they did was dumb...they made a mistake...which means they are human. Dr's, Judges, CEO's...you name it, they've all made bad decisions one point in their life. I'm sure you have too but maybe not

So you're saying if you break the law while you are actually working, right? Oh for sure if that happened I would lose my job too I'm sure. These cops though...they were off-duty meaning they were not at work? It depends on you job title and their crime would be like a bank investor getting busted for insurance fraud/money laundering for personal use (nothing taken from the actual bank). Good chance they'll be fired.

Also a comment on the video. She deserved to be arrested imo. She was warned several times by the officer. She can blow bubbles all she wants in random space but when you start blowing bubbles intentionally into someones face you're going to have issues. May seem harmless but the officer is right, they can burn the eye(s) if direct contact is made. The officer could have an eye condition, you never know. There's a line between protesting and being ignorant.

If you only knew of some of the "pranks" that LEOs play on unsuspecting citizens and taxpayers that pay their salary; you would be horrified.

These cops just happened to get caught.

I train cops in CIT btw.

No I just don't think "Oww My Balls" is funny other than in idiocracy. Sue me. And in regard to the response about being fired while at work, that was a direct question I answered.

And here you say someone blowing bubbles should be arrested because the officer may have an eye condition, you never know. How about arresting these jack off duty cops because, well, speeding 90 and avoiding the cops (ie lights flashing aka WARNING) may lead to someone getting pancacked - you never know but considering it has happened MANY times (compared to a guy with sunglasses getting hit by a random bubble) they most certainly should have been arrested, at least by your own logic. Too bad you can't see a woman blowing bubbles getting arrested vs cops putting the public at risk is not even a comparison.

Do you boys like Mexico!? Woohooo!

Sounds like real life Supertroopers. Its also not the first time some immature cops have done a car chase prank. These boys get that syrup in 'em,they get all antsy in their pantsy.

Which is another point that hasn't been discussed. The cops were coming back from a casino - damn good chance they were over the limit - but hey, drinking, going 90 and avoiding the cops is hilarious.

I was clarifying what you were saying to make sure I understood it correctly. But you're in this battle mode where all you want to do is defend and not see what other people are trying to say from their view.

Again look back at all my posts...you keep fighting to just fight. I thought it was funny that was it...it doesn't mean what they did was right or good just because I thought it was funny. The officer in pursuit had the right to make an arrest if she deemed it necessary. She CHOSE not to...what don't you understand about that?

The bubble issue is the female protester was blowing the bubbles in the face of the female cop and the male cop stepped in and warned her. Sure they could have let it go and I'd be fine with that as well. But she continued after being warned multiple times. The officer(s) made that decision to arrest her. It's not hard people...it just isn't.

Like the Super Mod this is my last response to this because it's ludicrous that it's even gotten this much attention.

Also to be clear CJ no hard feelings just a different view of opinions.

It's funny how some cops can't get away with something like this, yet more serious police abuses of power get no action or just a slap on the wrist.

No hard feelings here either - frankly raised in an Irish catholic family with a lot of kids, this is a civil conversation. As to your point, I see a cop not arresting a cop for commiting a fairly serious crime, and a cop arresting a young woman for nothing. I think this happens more than we are all willing to admit and frankly the ticket I got in the neighborhood I lived in for 15 years for "not locking my wheels" at a stop sign I've been through a million times might be clouding my judgement, but my point is that cops should be held to a higher standard as they took an oath as part of their job to not break the law. I'm just some guy trying to get home after work.

Do you have any idea how many teachers are fired for DUI? Thousands. And they are not on the clock.
