EXCELLENT POINT, SEEKER9!
ALL CAPS INTENTIONAL, Thumbs up. :-)
I don't want to be a cop there or anywhere else. It is a thankless job with little pay. And one more thing, you're always being accused wrong doing.
BTW just heard on WBAL that B-more homicide #100 last night. They're up 40% over the same time last year. Yay Baltimore! (smdh)
This same kind of thing happened when those Swedish cops subdued that wacko on the subway in NY. He started screaming that he couldn't breath.
I'm starting to see why some cops might not believe a suspect when they claim they are in trouble..
They've heard the cry of wolf not just three but dozens of times.
Kinda like welfare just a different way of getting free stuff. They learn fast.
Aw Lawdy...the Po Po went and broke his back! I saws it wif my own eyes, and dats the truoof!
We will come the point where no one but the criminals want to be cops and thats to make sure their operation runs smooth. A lady cop friend told me and mane of her fellow cops agree that when the Poo hits the fan they will go home and protect the people that love them and appreciate them. A lot of anti- gun people or folks in NYC that can't have gun will be holding the phone and hear a 911 operator tell them a cop will be there in 15 to 30 minutes as an armed Gang Banger is kicking down their door. Michael Bloomberg won't have that problem as he has armed body guards with AR-15's with 30 round clips.
Typical "shuck and jive" maneuver. Playing it up for the camera. The "oppressed" black "victim" once again. If only they he knew how much of a fool he looked like, that is if he had the brains to figure it out, and the moral substance to be ashamed about it.
His acting ability probably already got him on a lifetime of disability payments, why not go for a big civil settlement with the city?
He's been in prison before. He knows if you play sick, you can get sent to the hospital ER where there is a much better chance to hurt an officer, kick a white physician, or escape. Thankfully our county when they built the new jail, put in a medical ward just for these pieces of excrement. So they find themselves in an ER made for prisoners. Even if they are worse off than what the jail ward can handle, they are sent to the state operated prison wing of the local DHS funded hospital. There they pass through mantraps to get into the treatment area. They are handcuffed to a ring in the bed at all times. So it winds up not helping the perp with their faked injuries.
Obama, Sharpton and the professional idiots will say the police have forced this behavior on dem po black folk.
Or live there????? At least if you were a cop you would have a gun or two. I am sure the place would bust your chops for a permit to carry if you can even get one.
If he's the killer, strap him into a chair with a good back brace.
A good jolt of electricity would take care of the back pain.
Ah, I see we have a billy klinton acting school grad!
This guy is now the typical knee-groid in the U.S.
"Looks at me"
I'm as helpless as a monkey up a tree
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud
I can't understand
I get misty, just holding your hand

Don’t you just hate it when that happens? Driving along and… poof!! There goes the ol’ memory again! Now which is the brake and which is the gas? What’s fast and what’s slow? WAIT!! I’m an engineer!

There were hundreds of billions meant for infrastructure in the stimulus. Where did it go?
Probably bonuses for some mindless drones who watch porn on the job.
Pockets of politicians??? How do they get so rich?
Union payola ?
shovel ready bull turd. Jan 20 2017 will be the happiest day in the World !
Phony zip codes?
Year 2009: "Shovel-ready jobs.....shovel-ready jobs....shovel ready.....". Couple of years later: "Turns out, shovel ready wasn't so shovel ready! Hahahaha!" as he yukked it up with Jeff Immelt. Would anyone else get away with laughing about wasting an almost $1 trillion dollar stimulus? They spent only $9 billon of that stimulus on infrastructure.

If you haven’t noticed, there have been dozens and dozens of new companies formed since AOL. FB, YELP, BABA, Z, P, TWTR, etc. etc. Investing in stocks is the best way to participate in a free market economy. It’s called sharing the wealth.

Cop killers, Zap!

So, she wants more illegals? Or she wants to raise corporate taxes? I know. She wants both.

I’m convinced the left simply does not understand appeasement. Appease the aggressor, you get more aggression. Appease the criminals, you get more crime.
"Appease the criminals, you get more crime"
Are you serious?
The incarceration rate in America is THE HIGHEST in the WORLD!!!
We represent less than 5 percent of the world's population yet incarcerate nearly 22 percent of the world's prisoners!
So exactly which criminals are being appeased?
Cop killers, Zap!
Well you weren't THAT specific with your initial comment - now were you?
WHO AND HOW – SPECIFICS please – is appeasing cop killers?

There is no chance for trust when thugs only have to riot and loot to get “opportunity” provided by big govt.
At that age & beyond....fairly common to see a elderly drive plow through a building or crowd.
"Mistook" the gas pedal for the brake.
No kidding -- someone took that "80 is the new 50" thing too seriously.
Reserve deputies are usually just one of the Sheriff's friends who get to occasionally ride along. They are not paid.
You are supposed to separate which side you have each weapon on to make certain this doesn't happen, and usually you also are trained to shoot with the opposite grip on the taser as accuracy isn't as big of a deal in taser range. If you are too comfortable with your grip, you aren't using the taser and it's supposed to make you stop and double check yourself.
Clearly it failed in this instance and both men will pay the price for their choices that lead to this result. Like all accidents, it took a series of failures to reach the result.
Couple things...Mistaking a pistol for the older TASER's maybe, but new TASER's look and are handled like a semi auto pistol...I can easily see one mistaking one for the other. Happened a few years ago in NJ I believe by a transit cop who made same error and was convicted of murder.
As well, I believe this "reserve deputy" was a retired full time deputy, so he was very well trained. Was his age a factor? Perhaps, but even at least one young man, the transit officer, made the identical mistake few years ago. Plus as I'm only 15 years shy of 73, lets' not go all "73 is old," okay friends? I can live with arthritis, having a one-half inch vertical leap and walking on knees that have been abused for too many years, but I am not ready to be old!
Y'all tighten up!
Interested to find out what this country will be like in around 30 years when minorities are given free reign to pick and choose which laws they'll obey.
The Bolsheviks are digging their own graves and are too jaded to realize it.
I need to correct the record...in my previous comment on Seeker9's post I said "As well, I believe this “reserve deputy” was a retired full time deputy, so he was very well trained."
That is an INCORRECT statement on my part. The gentleman is an "advanced reserve" deputy and has complete at least 480 hours of training.
I apologize for my error and was not trying yo mislead anyone.

I think Sharpton should have to wear a cam on every visit to the White House. And video should be public, as such meetings should not be classified. Of course, this would be to build trust.
