New Hampshire police DUI “crackdown”-480 cars pulled over in one night: a whooping 7 arrested for alcohol-related charges

November 10, 2008

New Hampshire’s new DUI “mobile command post,” managed to pull over 480 cars in one night Friday night and early Sat. morning. The purpose was to “crack down” on people driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Of the 480 cars pulled over, police racked up a whooping 7 arrests for alcohol-related charges. For some perspective, for every 68 cars pulled over, police arrested 1 person. That’s some fine police work, Lou.

The sad thing is that this waste of money will be explained away as a success for the initiative. Some talking head from the state will stand in front of a podium touting the arrest numbers and making a case for how “police presence” kept impaired drivers off the road which=safety, which=keep funding our agencies. Of course, had police arrested more drivers, they would then make a case for increased funding levels. That’s the business of government for you.

Camera catches NYPD officer as he drops his shoulder and sends a bicyclist sprawling through air

July 29, 2008

**Update** According to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, NYPD Officer Pogan’s version of the events don’t exactly line up with the video below.

Pogan offered a fantastical version of the incident. Pogan claimed that Long drove his bicycle directly into him, knocking the cop to the ground and causing “lacerations on deponent’s forearm.”

Officer Patrick Pogan, a 23 yr. old rookie on his first month on the job, is currently on suspension while the matter is investigated. He’s really overdoing it in his quest to to win Rookie of the Year. After being knocked to the ground, the victim, sorry…”suspect,” Christopher Long, was then charged with attempted assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. According to Worldnetdaily.com (a website that is about as pro-military/police/flag and anti-ACLU as you can get:

Pogan reported that Long was weaving in traffic, “forcing multiple vehicles to stop abruptly or change their direction” to avoid a collision, a point contested by several riders behind the bicyclist.

Pogan also cited Long for physically struggling during the arrest, refusing to put his hands behind his back, “thereby making handcuffing difficult.”

Check out the video below. If the cop wanted to stop this guy, I think he probably could have done so. Officer Pogan doesn’t raise his hands to signal Long to stop, he just waits until he’s next to him and checks him hard to the concrete. Incident happens around the 0:25 mark. Police brutality apologists, quickly turn your brains off, and being your defense……now.
