Anyone that curses a cop to his face and is plainly resisting arrest is not a victim, I don't care what Mom says in between her F-bombs.


That's all you have after saying you hate the first amendment? Attempt to insult the person who called you out? Hilarious.

It astonishes me how foolish some people can be when dealing with the police.  While the cops ordinarily do a great job in difficult situations, they on rare occasions mess up.  Nonetheless, the best path to follow when dealing with them is to act like a rational human and not go all macho and stupid.  Odds are everybody will end up happier when the dust settles.

I happen to like cops.  I wish I had one living in my neighborhood.

"they on rare occasions mess up"

The issue is that when they "mess up" they can KILL an innocent citizen. That and they hardly ever get punished themselves for their "mess up", thought that is getting better lately.

About a hundred years ago I was hanging out with some of my semi-thuggish friends in a parking lot overlooking the Drag.  We were chatting with a couple of our favorite motorcycle cops, one of whom was famous in the day for being a badass.  At a traffic light about a block from where we were parked a local 'Vette driver launched his ride with great vigor and roared by us at full throttle.  Our cop amigos fired up their Harleys and roared off in pursuit.  We could hear the chase progress by the sound of the 'Vette going through the gears and the corresponding roar of the Harleys.  Some time passed.

A bit later our cops came back looking irritated.  One of us said to the badass, "John, did y'all catch him?"  His reply:  "No, the sumbitch made it to the city limits before we could pull him over."

Another of us said, "John, does it tick you off when one of us does that to you?"  He grinned and said, "Naw, I'll play ball with you boys, but if you stumble I'll stick the bat up your ass."

My point is this:  We, even as snot-nosed punk kids, knew how far we could go without REALLY bringing down trouble on ourselves.  I will also say John was fair with us.  I thought the guy was cool.
