Obey the law, huh... Lemme tell you a story:
Me and my g/f lived in a boarding house for a while. A true, actual, literal lunatic moved in down the hall. He ate his walls, wallowed in trash,
screamed and yelled stuff that not only made no sense, it was insane enough to send shivers down the spine of a statue.
One night, he broke into all of the other rooms. ALL of the doors are busted in but his. We called the cops, who belittled US, insulted US, threatened
US, and not only took his side, they did proper police procedure when he claimed the stuff he stole from US was his AND it had been stolen! the cops
sided with the criminal against all of the residents AND the owner of the property.
After the cops said they 'checked' his room- 95% of the stuff was found in it- RIGHT where we told the cops to look. He'd left by then.
Obey the law, my ass. THIS is what it gets you.
So you are taking this story as an example to not obey cops?
Would you feel the same if you had a vehicle stolen that you reported, and when the cop went to the house where it was parked at , and knocked at the
door to ask questions pertaining to your stolen vehicle, and the guy told him to get lost because he doesn't obey cops?
I don't agree with the professional conduct of this officer at all, and I feel he should be reprimanded in some way for uttering threats of this
I do think more police officers have to do their best to keep fellow officers in line by reporting this type of behavior.
They are there to protect us from criminals, and if those criminals are in the department, they should do their best to expose them.
That being said, anyone who thinks it is ok to blatantly disregard orders from a police officer , because many suck at their job, well...that is just
asking for trouble down the road.
I have seen videos that have been heartbreaking concerning the conduct of some police officers, but rarely do we hear about the cops who are
respectable, and go out of their way to help, putting themselves in danger.
I am appalled at what some officers do and get away with, but I am also deeply grateful to the officers who actually do care, and put their lives on
the line everyday to try and keep civility among us humans.
