    Trying to file a police complaint

    Interesting video on what happens if you try and file a complaint against a police officer. Obviously not the right way to go about it lolz.

    Pretty sad that most of those officers are still on the job.

    Really, this video looked like a set up?

    I might go along with that if it didn't consist of multiple precincts and officers.

    I just played back the first minute or so and none of the clips started from the start of a conversation.

    If you walk into a station or up to a cop and start making a pig of yourself to the extent that you've riled your mark to the point that he starts getting cranky then start the playback...

    Just another day in the 60 Minute editing office.

    I could be wrong but that's the way it looks to me.

    I remember watching the full episode on this and they did show the encounters from start to finish with no editing. Then they showed the aftermath where they interviewed the officers commanders after showing them the tapes of the encounter.

    Most, if not all, made excuses on how it was a lack of training on the matter, some promised to implement new training procedures or refresher courses. No one was punished or fired over the incident.

    I am by no means a cop basher, in fact I fully support the police being in emergency services myself, but this was a common sense matter that became very hostile and threatening towards an innocent civilian. If an officer handled that incident that poorly I would agree he has no business being in law enforcement. Heads needed to roll.

    In which case, I withdraw my previous cynicism.

    actually Bob is correct.

    Ever party with a bunch of cops? I have

    ever go to a bachelor party with cops, I have, been to several parties.

    Trust me, if you party with cops, it's reeeeaaaly hard to get in trouble when you party with cops

    They have this "thing" called Professional Courtesy, it works across *most* jurisdictions. (not all jurisdictions)

    The general rule of thumb is, if you get stopped, tell them where you were AND DON'T HIT ANYTHING (if you hit so much as a mail box, they have no idea who you are, period)
    I only drink a little, but when I do
    I turn into another person and THAT person drinks a lot

    Yeah, I have partied with a bunch of cops, and you are right they get away with a lot. I have played sports for years with some and some can turn real nasty as well!

    I couldn't resist a little fun with Bob since he has a Police Car as an Avatar.

    Work's for family members too. A little business card in the wallet acts like a get out jail free card. I have fist hand knowledge of that.....not me personally though.

    Some of the responses by the various officers was certainly out of line, but if someone claims to be wanting to file a complaint then refuses to give any details or even identify themselves, IMO the officer has good reason to be suspicious.
    It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?
