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!
