There are a lot of dopey comments on this article.

You could not be more wrong. You have a cop-hating agenda and are blind to what cops do every day, protecting your lame ass. Police officers are the Gestapo? If the police were rounding up every mental-deficient you’d have been the first to go, but they aren’t.

As a police officer and tea party member, I find your post offensive. You are typical of people who know nothing about law enforcement yet are so quick to judge what law enforcement officers do every day, which is put up with morons like you.

Some of you people sound truly ignorant. I despise Obama, yet here you are blaming Obama for something the local cops do? There are plenty of serious issues that can be blamed on Obama, but jaywalking enforcement is not one of them.
If you do the research, I am sure you will find that it is against the law to jaywalk in Austin. A bunch of lawyers, who at one time were in charge of gov’t, whom you elected, decided to pass a law making crossing the street, not at a crosswalk, a crime. This was done to keep people from getting run over by cars.
Now what happened here is probably that the mayor of this town saw someone cross in the middle of street, called the chief of police, and demanded that he take action against this heinous crime. So the chief calls his assistant chief and demands action. The asst. chief calls the lieutenants, who harangue the sergeants, who assign 2 officers to stand around and cite people who jaywalk. This lady jaywalks, gets cited for it but she’s not carrying her ID, which is required, so she gets handcuffed (because she is under arrest), then she pitches a fit and someone else starts filming.
Then everyone who views the video starts declaring the local cops are the Gestapo.
Do you really think these police officers want to cite normally law-abiding citizens for jaywalking? No. But when the excrement flows downhill, they are stuck with it.

When did McCain lose his marbles? Good God, Arizona, get it together?!

I believe the word you are looking for is ‘disgusting’.
However, don’t you think that ‘nuking’ an entire country may be seen as just as barbaric as the Taliban?
We need to train more snipers to be able to pick and choose our targets from 1000 yds away. No sense in nuking women and children, right?

The one in the purple dress is not a very attractive man.
but seriously, this is exactly what I expect from GLBT twits and Obama the destroyer.

It is difficult to find humor with someone who has done as much damage to the US as Obama has, no matter how funny his ‘jokes’ are.

When did the Navy start making strategic decisions on their own? Isn’t this done in response to direction from the White House?
(not that the White House knows what it’s doing)

If you’d like to know why our country is in such trouble, just listen to this congressional bloviator.

He sang ‘I’m so in love…with you”, undoubtedly to himself, or maybe Saul Alinsky.

It is remarkable how these Democrats can weave such a gigantic flying carpet out of one statement by one congressman.
I agree. The sound of crying turned my stomach. Imagine seeing this kind of thing on a somewhat regular basis, and then hearing the ows idiots chanting fu@# the police.
So what? They took the job willingly. Nobody forced them to take it. People generally appreciate what they do. But when they become nothing more than body guards for the criminal politicians or lie in wait for working Joe and Jane to come by so they can dole out $200 traffic tickets they get slammed. Oh, add to that when 10-20 of them blow some fool away and then backslap each other like they are real brave. Make no mistake, they despise the average citizen.
I have stopped wrong way drivers that were confused. A request for re-examination was filled out, however the DMV brushes it aside. In my opinion, they need the money more than protecting other drivers. Driving is a privilege is not the way the government works.

This is self-righteous, self-inflicted victimization of the highest order.
