Yank Police

And I thought our Police were bad....





The copper was let off but the woman quite rightly sued the Police dept and got $60,000 - Yank justice. No wonder the police behave like this if they keep getting away with it!!!

You know codprawn why is it you take any chance you can get to insult a yank? I’m sure if I had nothing better to do then to spend my life on the internet I could find a UK cop or piece keeper doing the same thing.

I copied this from one of your replies
“The whole idea is NOT to sink to their level.....”
What do you think you are doing when ever you make an uneducated remark about someone who is not just like you?

To everyone else pleas don’t take this wrong it sickens me that there are people out there who abuse their power no mater what nationality it is. I just get sick and tired of Codprawns constant jabs. I’m proud of my country and my country men and we have done a lot of good like any other country even though like everyone else there are things that I’m sure we could do over. I know I should just consider the source and forget it must just be a bad day.

Yer Mr Codprawn just look at what the “yanks” have given us. Some of the funnies CCTV footage ever. And as it has been said in the past you put any statement on a public forum and you are bound to upset some sensitive sod somewhere.

Look at RIBnet as a pub (a bar for you guys over the pond) with fools in it. If you are not happy to be in there go drink round the corner.

You will also find on this forum many people make fun of me being Welsh - doesn't bother me in the slightest!!!

I have loads of Yank friends - on both sides of the pond!!!

Do a bit more searching and you will also see I have often said that we are far closer to the Yanks than any of the Europeans - just see what I say about the Krauts or the Frogs!!!

Anyway I wasn't getting at Yanks in general - only the Police and ours are going the same way!!!

C'mon Cod! Admit it! You LIKE getting after us Yanks a bit! We can take it though, have been ever since the Boston Tea party! In regards to the Police officer in this instance he was totally over the top, throwing his "weight/authority/badge" around, what ever happened to checking the facts? My god a whole ten dollars, such a crime, the Wendy's crew is lucky they weren't all shot for such a misdeed, hardened criminals all apparently. The girl was being a somewhat typical mouthy teenager and should have just kept her mouth shut, that notwithstanding, the cop was a major... shall I say it? I think I will, ASS!!! God help the person who really does something wrong around this guy, they'll be shot dead over jaywalking. What a JERK!!
I know a lot of good cops, I have also seen many cases of idiots abusing their authority, they serve the public, and shouldn't be going off halfcocked when they carry a gun!
