Depends on who you are calling incompetent. The girl for losing her passport? The pilot or company people for turning around?
There was a time when police used to just lend a helping hand to people in the street. Hell, there is a video from the 70s where the cops are just
standing around on the block asking the Bikers (Hells Angels -gang-) to be "nicer".
It was kinda like, "Aw shucks why you gotta be like that for?"
And the bikers, kinda just talked out their point to the "pigs" and if I remember correctly they might have even said that allowed, but alas, the cops
just let it roll off their shoulders. Maybe I am remembering incorrectly, but I do know that the cops were very calm and just talking it out with
them. At no point did they get threatening or aggressive.
Whats the point to your babbling, you ask Boncho...
Well, now-days, one might look at that situation and say the cop was incompetent because he didn't taze the $%#& out of those bikers. Why not beat
them with batons, arrest them and charge them for assaulting an officer? Heck, I think they had a camera phone, should of been a Wiretapping Arrest
and that anarchist biker should be looking at 20 to life. "You iz totally incompetent Officer Scarbodo."
Yeah, well... Incompetent has a lot of meanings these days. I didn't really see any incompetence here.
