Do you know why a very large number of Americans absolutely cannot stand cops? Some people just absolutely despise every single cop in existence. Many would just as soon spit at them as look at them. Want to know why that is?
9,999 out of every 10,000 cops are perfectly respectful to the public and do their best to perform a very difficult job. I know some of these people. They really are the good guys.
It’s that last sonofabitch that ruins it and brings down hatred on all the rest. Read this story and watch the video. If you get to the end of that without wishing you had a baseball bat and five minutes alone with this jackhole, something’s wrong with you.
Not only does he nearly murder a man by refusing to dispatch him an ambulance, he freakin ARRESTS the man’s 17 year old daughter when she shows up at the police station to file a complaint about him! Was this dude trained by the Gestapo or WTF??
He should have been fired for putting the public at risk by not performing his duties and then he should have been arrested for false imprisonment (or whatever they call it in Michigan) and assault. Also, being a douche bag of this magnitude must be illegal in itself, surely?
What did he actually get? A two week vacation and a stern talking-to from the police chief. :\
It’s not mentioned in that article, but he actually went through with charging the girl with disorderly conduct, which means he also committed perjury by signing falsified police incident reports.
The one piece of good news here is that the city prosecutor dropped the charges on the day of the hearing after learning that they were bogus. At least somebody that works for that town has some goddamn common sense.
