If you don't agree, you haven't met firemen. If you're offended, piss off. Everything I wrote is a fact, not an opinion
Holy crap, you all lost your minds. You were both offended by facts, and had melt downs instead of facing it, and saying, yeah, true, cops do indeed shoot people, issue tickets ( motorcycle cops giving a tickets for no seat belts to drivers... figure that out), and harrass people with stop and frisks.
here's the cop that hit some biker at a stop sign, then kicked him while pointing a gun at him, finger on the trigger, and busted his jaw, full story and result: http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2016/01/just-another-asshole-that-became-cop.html
Exhibit A, asshole cop pepper spraying bikers who are doing absolutely nothing wrong
If you're frothing at the mouth about my taking this moment to celebrate firefighters, and point out the facts about cops, go away. I never invited you, didn't ask you to comment, and you don't know me. If you can't handle my sticking up for us ordinary people, and voicing my protest on my site? Adios.
2 years ago, a cop in Georgia was doing 90 in a 55, and killed two teenage girls. http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/10/90-miles-hour-was-how-fast-cop-was.html
I had no intent to waste my time writing out a rant, but, hey, screw it, some readers are in denial and hero worship all police, and ignore the fact that many are complete assholes who bully people, and are too lazy to be professional, and do anything useful for the area they are paid to enforce laws in.
Also, far too many of you can't recall the many times I've posted a special salute for the incredible cops that are awesome. Yup, I've got a 100 examples of police being utterly despicable, and most readers just lose their minds that I point it out, and have zero concern about telling the truth, reporting the news, and leaving opinions out of it.
So, without listing all the examples of bad cops, killing people, planting evidence and guns on the dead, doing cavity searches on the roadside, without gloves, on women, having sex with underage interns, (that's statutory rape, just a reminder LAPD), drunk driving, killing their K9's by leaning them in roasting cop cars, etc etc ad nauseum - it's all facts, from multiple sources, all news outlets.... here are the examples of good cops that I have posted too... and some readers have forgotten all about.
If there were more examples of awesome cops, I'd post them too. But, in 30000 posts, 11 years, NO ONE HAS EVER SENT ME ONE. I've found them myself, like most everything else I've posted.
For being the cop to find the most stolen cars
paint ball innovation for better policing
stolen car ring busted
cops bust a group stealing vans and music equipment
brought a homeless mother of 4 lunch, tried to help
Gave a guy a bicycle because they learned he walks to work 5 miles a day
Cops being proactive about cars getting stolen near the beach
cops getting smart and proactive about busting people on phones
busting cell phone users
cop get a kiddo a I pad... kiddo was working a lemonade stand, but had to give mom the cash for gas.
and all of you have forgotten that I used to do "hero of the day"
Stopped to help with a flat tire
stopped to share lunch with a homeless guy
helped kids fix their bike tire
helping a wheelchair bound guy across a road.
and my professional favorite - Maine State Trooper Stephan Murray. The only great cop I've ever admired for his professionalism http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2014/10/reminder-of-how-cops-can-act.html
That's all I have time for, you can find the rest if you want to, they are all in the archives. Not that anyone remembers.
So, if you're all aggravated that I speak my mind? Deride cops for being assholes when I post evidence of it? Piss off.
I speak my mind when cops are cool too, but, you're too damn busy to even notice, remember, or keep in mind that I'm equal opportunity, and NO ONE gets left behind. Ohana.
PS, if you're all offended, and think, ah, he's got it out of his system. Nope. Go away now, it's never going to end so long as police do stupid illegal shit that pisses me off. You're just going to get offended over and over.
On the other hand, if you aren't some snowflake, delicate little pansy, and can ride out the storm, stick around, I'm also going to post a lot of cool shit too, and when I come across awesome cops, I'm going to salute them to. But that doesn't come up in the news much, and that's not my fault, I do what I can to share my admiration of EVERYTHING. If they aren't the professionals they should be, that's something I can't do anything about, take it up with them. I was professional, so were most of the guys I served with, and it's simply just something I did, like many other things. It's in the past, and forgotten.
Once again, no one was invited to be a reader, I've never advertised to get more readers, and frankly, no one is going to matter to me if they stop reading along. There has only ever been a handful of people who ever reached out to me in the 11 years, and half billion visits to this blog of mine, and no one else said as much as "boo", not a "peep" out of any of the rest of you, like 77MGB who never had a thing to say until he got pissed off today. Oh effing well. You must not know me, obviously.
You're not my parents, or a girlfriend, I don't have kids, and unless you've went out of your way to reach out to me and be my friend, why does it matter what you're offended about on my blog? Nothing was put here for YOU. As Eddie Murpy's dad said "this is my house, if you don't like it, get the F*&k out"
If you're amused and entertained, great! Job completed. If you're not, well, let me find your money and refund it. Oh... yeah, that's right.... you never subscribed, bought a annual membership, etc. Get it? Enjoy this, or don't, but expecting me to care that you're offended when I'm just relaying facts, and truth? Nah, not going to happen. I'm like Dennis Leary, an asshole to some, comedian to others. What the hell do offended people think this blog is anyway? You know what I mean?
