I just want to clairfy, when I said I've had a few laughs at cops' expense. It was never anything serious, most of the time it's those things you see on TV where they forget to put the cruiser in park and they end up chasing it in reverse as the dash cam rolls. I've seen a couple of them slip on ice and fall on their asses, even they were laughing about it.

Fuck 'em. Dude was trying to kill American Soldiers, he got what he deserved. Like my bro said "if we couldn't find humor in that morbid shit, we'd probably go crazy from stress". Those same people who would cry about it, probably have no idea what it's like to face suicide bombers.

By the way, I wasn't trying to raise any sort of fuss about that story. I just threw it out there for debate, and I agree that it's just poor judgment that most likely says nothing about this young man as a police officer.

I know you just wanted to spark debate. And you are adept at baiting me. In fact, I would say that you are so good at it, that might make you a mast...>X>X>X>, nevermind.......

FWIW, I don't think a guy pissing his pant is gallows humor. Read CDT's post above for a little taste of gallows humor.

Haven't had one of these in awhile. Cops tased an umarmed wheelchair bound man with no legs.

Opinions?

For example, one thing that wasn't listed though is whether Mr. Williams had any prior arrests or if the police has had to come back to this guy's place multiple times before for stuff. For all we know the cops could have been to this guys place giving him multiple warnings about domestic violence, etc.

But once again a newspaper can't seem to get a story with all the facts and this is why the media sucks. I honestly don't know whether I should be outraged or not without all the facts.

My biggest question is why is child protective services storming into this guys house to take his 2 year old? I would have threw a fit too if some asshole social worker tried to storm into my house and grab my kid.


1. Because they were there on a domestic violence call. Pretty much fair game to get the 2 year old out of the mix when you are there because of a report of hitting one's wife.


Damn - how slow is the wife to get beat on by Ironside. She ever hear of a bike lock?

Wow. Dude had his hands on the cop car and still got zapped. I'm no expert, but isn't that assault? I don't get what went through that cop's head, he had to know his own dash cam is rolling.
