Police

This is interesting:

As if that’s a thing.  I bet some of you guys (law enforcement and otherwise) have some good stories regarding these.

Whatever though, if it just gives the person a pass on minor traffic offenses I don’t really care.  More serious stuff though like drunk driving etc… seems unethical to give someone a pass on.

I haven’t got a ticket for anything in well over a decade.  I’m sure it will happen eventually where I’m going over the speed limit somewhere without realizing… but hey that’s how it goes.  I’ll be polite to the officer, pay the ticket and move on with my life.

Thoughts?  I’m with that one guy in the video who says he doesn’t want his name associated with stupid shit other people are trying to get themselves out of with the card.

Yooooo this is creepy:

Those dead eyes and no mouth…. yikes.  How much do you want to bet they start arming them next, and then all of the sudden we have a full on Terminator / SKYNET type situation?

haha damn, the police are stealing from unlocked cars to prove a point.  Savage:

Dorthy-Wizard-Of-Oz-Police-StateHow is this even legal?  It’s my business If I want to leave something inside my car.  I can see if someone left an unsecured firearm out in plain view on the dash of un unlocked car, ya that would be concerning and irresponsible.  If I leave an ipod out in the open, the police are just going to jack it and make me drive down to get scolded and pick it up?  What the hell?  No chill, I’d be mad.  Seems that “caretaker provision” in state law they mention at 0:35 is why they can do this.  I wonder how many person of interests’ car’s in CT are found “accidentally left unlocked with valuables visible” *big air quotes with fingers there for emphasis*, giving the police a reason to go in and rummage through.

1:25 – This old lawyer at the end keeps it 8 more than 92.

What’s next? You live in New Haven and leave the blinds on your house open and police can see your 55″ LED TV from the road, the sneak up and try the door?  Then when it’s unlocked they tip toe in, pink panther it, and leave you a “pick it up at Police HQ” note?  haha yea I can’t see that ending well.

So a specific phone was invented:

Taser-Axon-Head-Mounted-Camera-PoliceMeh this could have been way funnier if the acting wasn’t so rigid.  I haven’t posted any filmed open carry “AM I BEING DETAINED?!” type videos on here lately but I’m sure people are still trying hard to troll.  Leonard Embody (kwikrnu) actually crossed my mind a couple days ago… I wonder if he has baited the police enough to cash in on a lawsuit yet?  He’s definitely the type to have his name on “red-alert-wake-me-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night-with-a-foghorn gooogle alerts” at any mention of his name, so hopefully he will stop by and chime in.

VICE asks some people worldwide:

0:25 – Whooo sup Milène?  She looks like a girl who I dated for a couple months.  Now I just see her online.  Probably for the better… she was 39, she didn’t “get” memes, and that clock was ticking.

I’m not really that surprised that internationally people have a negative opinion of them, especially considering all the negative crap the media puts out which people catch on camera.  Thankfully I’ve actually noticed there seems to be some effort lately with the media reporting GOOD stories about the police too.

3:35 – “Police have too many weapons. They should only have a taser MAYBE.”  -Cool story from a Mexican bro

Taser-Axon-Head-Mounted-Camera-PoliceMeh… definitely one of those VICE videos just to scrape in a few extra ad dollars.  I like a lot of their stuff but some of it is like “Why bother?”.
