COPS episode 11/05/2011 officer quote

Discussion in 'Lounge' started by Stromm, Jul 11, 2015.

  1. Standing directly in front of the camera, looking at another officer, Officer Frech says "I'm thinking he needs to be tazed just for all this work."

    The other officer says "yay". Then officer French looks back at the camera with an oh crap look on his face.

    Fortuantely, the suspect was very cooperative and didn't "need" tazed.

    Stupid is as stupid does. But I'm not defending them by this in any way. But some times just a little sh!t talk goes along way to get someone to comply. And I did not see that one was it good?

    Is that an example of "Bad Cop, Worse Cop?" :D

    Has anyone one seen that episode where they find a 995 monkey gun in a crack house? The cop called it a "ghetto blaster."

  6. If you had ever spent any time around cops you'd know this is pretty normal. The contempt the custodians feel towards mere citizens is huge.

    That is usually City Police/Constables...

    Many Sheriff's Departments LEO's that I have met are pretty down-to-earth folk.

    I'd say more like towards the mere *******, who they've had to respond to a dozen times, and is still on the street..... Most of the cops I know are good guys....

    I would venture to say you have had a few run ins with them to feel that way towards you. :doh::doh::doh:

    Try working the job and not have a warped sense of humor it keeps you from going insane.
     
  11. I've noticed this difference and wonder why it is.

    The LEO I consider friends were both sheriffs -- one retired after turning down a Chief's position at a city police force. The other ran for and keeps getting elected judge. I completely understand why one turned down the city job and retired. I think the guy who is now a judge was a better deputy than he is a judge. I know a couple of judges who are much worse than he is though.

    Notice both these friends are older -- the younger ones are very different, much less the kind of person I'd like to have in a position of authority.

    You guys who blindly defend police just because they have a badge need to open your eyes. LEO is now definitely the tool of government, for most their oath is secondary to the signature on the check.

    I defend the ones I know who are good guys, as opposed to blanket "they're all dicks." statements.....

    I have, more often then not, found that those with a constant and glaringly negative attitude towards LEO's do so out of an inferiority complex originating in their own deeply rooted feelings of low self worth and exacerbated by their feeling of being an effeminate male who has no control in either their personal or employment life and thereby manifesting a pronounced inability to interact with a strong authoritarian figure regardless of whether said figure is male or female. These are the ones that shake, sweat and stammer when you pull them over and they have to interact with you; then tell their passenger how lucky you were that they didn't get out of the car and whoop your butt..... after you drive away...:rofl::rofl::rofl:

    But that's just what I have observed. ;)

    I don't know, I've offered to pull my crew out of a working chimney fire that was extending in to the main house when the home owner complained that our hoses were leaking on his new hardwood floors in the living room and kitchen.

    Mind you this was after my crew pulled all of his furniture and possessions out of the 2 bedrooms that the fire was extending to on the second floor. We also made sure to open his windows instead of breaking them out, and threw tarps on the stairs and carpet on our way through the house.

    Sometimes an attitude is the only response to an attitude.

    No one here does that. When a LEO is wrong, and the facts show that, the LEO's and former LEO's on this board say so. Where the issue lays is with those on here that constantly want to berate LEO's or run them down with blanket statements such as "for most their oath is secondary to the signature on the check". Please provide your polling data or facts to back up this statement.

    I've known well over two dozen LEO in my life and most were fairly decent people, despite the types of people they constantly have to deal with on a daily basis. Granted their sense of humor is a little effed up, just like all of the firefighters, nurses and soldiers I've known...it's a tool that helps cope with stress.

    That said sometimes people just deserve a good tazing for making your job way harder than it needs to be, being tazed honestly isn't all that bad, I've never been shot, but hit with the prongs a few times...not that big of a deal unless you fall over.
     
  18. Moona, yep. Great episode as usual.

    I should have mentioned, the quote happened outside before entering the house.

    Also, My post is solely about those two officers. Back in High School, I was a tech specialist for three county judges and one supreme court judge (also was the plant/inside man for a major piracy bust). Over a five year period, I got to be acquaintances, and maybe even friends, with dozens of LEOs. I knew over a hundred by name and they new me by name, in a good way :). I can only think of three who were d-bags. Even the other LEOs thought so.

    As i have always said, the rate of bad cops is much lower than the rate of bad employees in other fields, especially doctors and teachers (I have professional experience to back that up too).

    I repoed vehicles for a living for several years in the NJ, DE, PA and NY area.

    My boss said LEO's fall into three categories - 5% were really good and really bad cops; 25% were rank and file LEO's who felt a need to give back to the community (they had relatives who were LEO's before them or, they were impressed by LEO's in their past); and 70% were the bullies You knew in High school, the Blacklegs from the Army, or, LEO's who ran stoplights or, stop signs because they didn't want to wait, or, gave 'breathalyzer tests' to the pretty women, because they could hide behind the law.

    Good thing times have gotten better since those days. The LEO's of today are much more professional then they were in those days.

    And, deserve all the support that they can get from the Citizens they protect.

    Especially now, that filthy politicians are throwing them under the bus for their poorly thought out policies.

  20. Post honest data about government agencies? You know full well that's not possible -- police agencies are no different than any other arm of government.

    Most people don't fall into the category or those I'd like to have as friends. Police are drawn from that same group and are really no different. There are a few really good ones -- I like to think that includes the two friends I posted about above. There are a number who are truly vile (and there's no way to know what that number is, agencies hide the facts for their own reasons). Most of them are the typical people with no real convictions one way or another; they put in their time and collect their paycheck with no real concern for anything else -- just guys doing a job. These are the ones with the casual contempt for the public - because other people are of no real value to them.

    Let's look again at my statement:

    The mendacity of some posters above is obvious.
