No, officer it’s still not a crime to film the police. Seriously, call dispatch and ask.

No McNuggets? Surely that’s a reason to call 911.

March 5, 2009

<sighs>

“I called 911 because I couldn’t get a refund, and I wanted my McNuggets,” according to the below Fort Pierce Police Department report. That logic, however, did not keep cops from citing Goodman for misusing the 911 system. Even after being issued a misdemeanor citation, Goodman contended, “this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency.”

Listen to the 911 calls below.

“My wife said if I didn’t get her another beer, she was going to stab me in the face.”   Fair enough.

We fully support the Tazering of police officers…

Newark, New Jersey cop chokes photographer while photographer is cuffed. Photographer’s “crime”? Filming on a public sidewalk.

Newark, NJ cop apparently forgets about the First Amendment as he arrests cameraman for filming.  In broad daylight.  On a public street.  I’m sure this is an isolated incident.

Riviera Beach Police Having Arrested Every Violent Offender in City, Move On To Arresting Men Whose Pants Sag

September 12, 2008

Just kidding, I’m sure there’s probably several violent offenders with arrest warrants roaming Riviera Beach. But, dear residents, fear not, for your police department is protecting you from anyone that is showing between 2 to 5 inches of their underwear by sagging their pants. This very necessary ordinance was passed after several recent drive-by boxer showings that resulted in the deaths of 7 people. Those poor victims’ memory will be honored by Riviera Beach’s finest getting those dangerous pairs of underwear off the streets.

So far, 11 people have been arrested, and charged with a misdemeanor and face fines of up to $150.00. Repeat offenders could face up to 30 days in jail. Yes, this is your tax dollars at work. That’s some fine police work, Lou…….

I shouldn’t be too harsh on the police, they don’t make these asinine laws, but they will be the ones who will certainly face an even more hostile community as a result of enforcing the ordinance. Guess which racial group this law has affected the most so far? The collected mugshots of 8 of the 11 arrested men are shown below. What’s that ringing sound? I think it’s the ACLU.

Marijuana growhouse found in Miami’s Mall of America. Sharp increase in parents not only volunteering to drive kids to mall, but also sticking around much longer.

American ingenuity proudly on display.  I love entrepreneurs.  I bet the food court had been experiencing record sales as of late……

MIAMI — The Drug Enforcement Administration discovered something unexpected in the Mall of the Americas.

DEA agents found a hydroponics lab with more than 200 marijuana plants, standing 3 to 6 feet tall in the air and worth millions of dollars, in a storage area on the second floor of the mall.

Authorities said the electricity that powered the lab was diverted from the mall’s main power supply.

No arrests have been made. Authorities said officials with the Mall of the Americas are cooperating with the investigation.

You won’t take $0.02 for sex? Fine, I’ll throw in a lighter and a bicycle.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office says a Bonita Springs man has been arrested after offering undercover deputy who was posing as a prostitute two cents for sex.

Fausino Diaz Hernandez, 46, has been charged with soliciting a prostitute. According to an arrest report, Hernandez offered a female undercover deputy two pennies on Thursday night. Acting Sgt. Matt Chitwood, of the narcotics and vice operations for the Bonita Springs Community Policing unit, said Hernandez offered the undercover deputy other things as well, including cigarette lighters and a bicycle. Hernandez’s arrest was part of a three-hour sting to crack down on prostitution in Bonita Springs. He was one of 10 men arrested during the sting.

Cop Vows To Hunt Down Punk Who Successfully Pressed Brutality Charges Against His Partner

August 18, 2008 | Issue 44.34

DETROIT—Christopher O’Dell, a 16-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department, told reporters Monday that he will not rest until he exacts revenge on the man who got his long-time partner, Officer Rick Noonan, 38, suspended for using excessive force during an arrest at a peaceful demonstration last March. “That punk is going to get what’s coming to him again,” O’Dell said. “If it’s the last thing I do, I’ll make sure that scumbag is taken off the streets, not properly informed of his Miranda rights, chained to a radiator beneath the station, and kept awake for days of interrogation without being formally charged.” O’Dell added that the suspect in question is going to wish he had never filed a complaint for sustaining a concussion and broken collarbone after O’Dell is finished breaking his leg and giving him a concussion.

Having solved all other crimes, Fire Marshall in Texas arrests woman for using profanity. No, I’m f**king serious.

August 14, 2008

A 28-yr. old woman was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct. Her crime? Swearing. Yes, Houston area residents can breathe easier knowing that foul-mouthed heathens everywhere are cowering in fear. I’m sure none of us here have ever heard a public safety official swear, right? Nah…..

Capt. Alfred Decker, the La Marque assistant fire marshal, ticketed, then arrested the young woman for swearing in Wal-Mart. Tropical Storm Edouard was quickly approaching so the woman, upon finding all batteries gone, exclaimed, “They’re all f**king gone,” to her mother standing next to her. Thank goodness that Capt. Alfred Decker was on the scene. He issued her a citation and then arrested her.

The reaction of La Marque Fire Chief Todd Zacherl to the arrest of a woman for using profanity:

“When you’re in uniform, you have to uphold the laws,” the fire chief said. “It’s like if he was on the way home and saw a drunk driver — he had to act.

Apparently Fire Chief Todd Zacherl has never heard of discretion……Look, let’s just call this what it is. A public official overreacting and abusing his authority. Rather than admit any wrongdoing, the Fire Dept. chooses to try and save face by acting like this was the right thing to do.
