I wonder if this cop is going to catch shit for A) Excessive force (choking a thirteen year old who is on the ground doesn't look very good), B) stating that these kids were under arrest and then not informing them as to their rights and C) bein caught on tape and causin all kinds of shit for his department

Well at 2:00 that kid attacks him, can't really argue with that.
10 years ago
A and B, but only because of C.

Kojach the kid attacks him at 2:00? If that's what you would call assaulting an officer, you'd make a good cop.

FUCK THAT PIG! it was just a bunch of kids skate boarding what the fuck is wrong with that?! there are sure a hell of alot worse things they could be doing

"When you resist that's what happens" and "She didn't worry about it when she wanted to fight did she?" No way in hell he's gonna lose his job, if he does, that's a real injustice. FUCK YOU HIPPY DOUCHBAGS

kojach im sorry but you are a cunt. no matter what a cop has to live up to standards, as we all do. even if a 13 year old fights back....its a 13 year old...not some shit fuck with 40+ years of life/work experience.
10 years ago
yes because we know its more likely that a 40 year old is carrying a knife and not a sweet 13 year old
10 years ago
yeah because all teens are packing switch blades and are in gangs...

borracho that makes no sense... if someones big enough to put up a proper fight then you take them down quickly and effectively... furthermore most cops arent drty and do all this shit. just liek most peopel arent idiots or cunts or mean thats just what you see on tv so ofcours eitll seem liek eveytime you see a cop something went wrong.. that just cause a cop or person doing normal things isnt interesting. people what to see drama. and also that picture could have been taken WAY out of context before the videocamera showed up. if you take a picture right anyone can look bad even when doing something good. although he is restraining the kid and you dont know what the kid was doing and if he was righting back. so there. ::Semi Rant completed... returning to base::

have you fought anyone? the kid looks to be 130 to 160 tops the cop looks to be a good 220+ thats not a fight. and anyone can tell that kid is just a skate punk and its fucking arkansas not the most forward thinking place to be, and i said nothing about all cops acting like this.
10 years ago
also its a 13 year old...not some shit fuck with 40+ years of life/work experience.

You're so stupid borr if you resist you get taken down it doesn't matter who the fuck you are or who the fuck bitches about it on the internet.
10 years ago
Kojach who the fuck disagrees with that point? We know that you get taken down if you resist arrest. That's what's wrong. A 13 year old who ways 26 lbs shouldn't be "taken down" for resisting arrest because they were skateboarding. That's fucked up.

Getting taken down for assaulting someone, or a real crime is one thing. Skateboarding down a street? You're fucking stupid.
10 years ago
I'm not the stupid fuck that just said criminals shouldn't be taken out for resisting arrest. And BTW no matter how old you are breaking the law is breaking the law.
10 years ago
dont be such a square koj im sure every one in you rotc troop will agree with you.

also why would a man of that age still be on beat? id say smooth moves like that are why this fat fuck hasnt moved up in the ranks.
10 years ago
These kids are getting their first taste of the law. Obviously they don't know how shit goes down with authority. They act like they are so innocent for skateboarding, yet they try to run away, like they won't get in trouble for that. Sure it is corrupt to choke a teen, but they should have just used common sense.
10 years ago
And just stayed home in front of the TV, keeping their gaze low and walking carefully with their hands in their pockets when they occasionally left the house?
10 years ago
If they had their hands in their pockets in public, cops like the one above would think they're hiding either drugs or going for their weapon.
10 years ago
If we cut everyone's hands off at birth, they'd be less likely to be a threat!

if i ever saw my kids manhandled like that, specially my daughter, that fucking pig would at the very least loose his job

would you send your wife round to sort him out
10 years ago
thats whats wrong with todays society Volcano, people coddle their kids too much. fucking beat your kids, teach them not to fucking disobey the law. (All ends of it, not just what these tard emos were doing by skating) and if you are by some means on the wrong side of the law, fucking dont be stupid. use that thing on your top of your shoulders for something other than a hat holder.

i take it you like to bend over hogmaster, take it like a man and go to your room fag.

cops are stupid. they are paid to enforce the law, with no law degree, therefor not really knowing shit about it. They are bored and do this shit? We should be allowed to beat cops.
10 years ago
you're stupid
10 years ago
If you have enough people, you are allowed to beat cops.
10 years ago
that cop was making up shit as he went along. in order for someone to be under arrest they have to be mirandised. he was just pissed off that the kid ran and made him look like an ass. there was no call to choke a 13 or 14 yr old girl that wasn't putting up a fight. the only reason the cop assaulted the girl was because she didn't want to sit down when he told her too.
all she did was spin out of the choke hold the fat cop put her in.
the kid with the camera didn't run, resist, fight or anything let alone interfer with a police officer. most of that was bullshit because they made him look like a buffoon in public. he's lucky she wasn't my daughter.
10 years ago
He's lucky I wasn't the 13 year old girl!

A fuck it... if I was I'd be at home looking at my boobs in the mirror.
10 years ago
cdb if you teach your daughter to struggle and run when a cop gets hold of her it wont be long before one of them shoots her, if you've done nothing wrong just answer the questions and leave, having an attitude and running away...dont complain when the cop does his job, at least 50% of teenagers carry knives in my area and we've all seen what skateboards around the back of the head can do.

i agree kat. she knows not to resist but also not to let any cop put their hands on her just because they have a badge. anyone is entitled to defend themself. i also made sure that she knows that if she is pulled over that she's to keep her hands in sight and only roll the window down enough to slide her license and registration through. if it's at night and she's not comfortable with a cop that's trying to pull her over to call 911 and tell the operator what's going on and to find the nearest populated place or police station. cop or no cop, if one crosses that line then he's going to have a problem with a pissed off father not joe blow the citizen.
10 years ago
That 17 year old who got stripped and so on in Mcdonalds let it happen because she was taught to do what authority figures say.

I would teach my daughter to phone my lawyer the second a cop tried to pull any shit on her.

you don't have to be read your rights the very moment you're arrested

to all you dumb fucks who say you can"t be arrested whithout miranda rights you need to review cuz they only have to do that if they question you
10 years ago
wrong simple ass. you need to double check the meaning and intent of miranda rights.
you "cannot" be arrested or questioned (legally) without being read your rights hence the term "rights"). you can, however, be detained without being read.
until you've been pulled over and had your ass kicked "just because you fit the description" don't tell me about what can and cannot be done. i read, study and consult.
10 years ago
while you're detained you can be asked for id and can be hancuffed if this makes the officers job easier or they feel threatened while doing a pat down...they are not allowed to go into your pockets whilst you're detained only when you're in custody

Cops are too harsh these days. I know a semi-professional racing driver, who back in the eighties was hammering his sports car through the welsh countryside in the middle of the night on deserted roads, after a while he saw a car following him. Unfortunately it turned out to be a cop car. They pulled him over and only said "you look as though you know what you're doing, but keep the speed down along here there's a village coming up soon" and that was it! Apparently the other day he got pulled over for doing only 5mph over the speed limit. He was given a £50 fine and 3 points on his licence. Now to me that's a bit excessive.
10 years ago
That's the thing, it used to be about the spirit of the law, now its about profits gained by enforcing the letter of the law.
10 years ago
I admit that this is wrong and all that shit. But I would just like to make the point, El Wanko, that cops don't get a monetary sum for each infringement on the law that they enforce.
10 years ago
No, they believe they are preserving some "rule of law" bullshit. That's the sad part. They hand out a bunch of speeding tickets and think they've actually done something good.

The police force, as a whole, does get donations such as radar guns, from the insurance industry. And then more 'donations' if they hand out enough tickets. Such nice people.
10 years ago
Ya, cops in my area have a ticket quota, and they get chewed out if they don't give enough. Sometimes, toward the end of the day, they give tickets they know will get thrown out in court, just to meet their requirement.
Law and order, Bitches!
10 years ago
Some give out stupid tickets because they need the overtime. All they gotta do is sit in court and eventually say "yes, he was" they get paid 1.5x or so regular wages for it.
10 years ago
You douche bags who think this is wrong...when an officer of the law tells you to stop skating on the street, and you run. You're evading the law and you're going to get taken down. When you try to fight a cop, you're going to get hurt. You and these little douche bags need to learn that even if they don't agree w/ the law, it's still the law.

Virginians Face $3,000 Traffic Ticket
By Dennis Cauchon,USA Today
Posted: 2007-07-01 15:18:05
Filed Under: Law, Nation
(July 1) - Virginia is for lovers, or so the state slogan has declared since 1969. Starting today, Virginia also will be the home of the $3,000 traffic ticket. In an effort to raise money for road projects, the state will start hitting residents who commit serious traffic offenses with huge civil penalties.

Virginia issued new traffic penalties Sunday charging resident drivers exhorbitant fees for severe traffic violations.

Beginning Sunday, Virginia is adding new civil charges to traffic fines. They range from $750 to $3,000 and will be added to existing fines and court costs. The civil penalty for going 20 mph over the speed limit will be $1,050, plus $61 in court costs and a fine that is typically about $200.

The new civil charges range from $750 to $3,000 and be added to existing fines and court costs. The civil penalty for going 20 mph over the speed limit will be $1,050, plus $61 in court costs and a fine that is typically about $200.

Virginia's traffic law is one of several thousand new state laws that take effect Sunday. Jan. 1 and July 1 are the most popular dates for state laws to become official.

July 1 is especially popular for new taxes and fees because it's the start of the budget year in 46 states. For example, Arkansas will cut its sales tax on groceries from 6% to 3% Sunday.

Virginia's new traffic penalties are expected to raise $65 million a year and are part of an effort to improve the state's roads without raising taxes.

A first-time drunken driver will face a $2,250 civil penalty, plus fines and court costs that typically run about $500 or more. Driving without a license? That's a mandatory $900 civil penalty, in addition to the ordinary $100 for a fine and court costs.

"It's outrageous," says traffic court attorney Thaddeus Furlong of Springfield, Va. "When Mr. and Mrs. Middle Class find out what they have to pay, there's going to be a backlash like you've never seen."

Some other states impose extra civil penalties for traffic offenses, but the cost is usually $100 or $200, Furlong says. "What sets this apart is the Draconian size of the civil penalties," he says.

Another difference: The civil penalties apply only to Virginia residents, not out-of-state drivers. Virginians must pay in three installments over 26 months or lose their licenses. The state Legislature didn't think it could enforce the extra penalties in other states.

Motorist club AAA Mid-Atlantic supports the new penalties.

"These penalties are harsh, but normal fines haven't gotten people to drive sanely. Maybe this will," says Lon Anderson, spokesman for AAA Mid-Atlantic.

He says the new law will help reduce the nearly 1,000 traffic deaths the state records annually.

"We wish motorists didn't have to pay more, but the fact is Virginia's transportation trust fund is broke," Anderson says.

Other new laws taking effect July 1:

Drunken Driving: Wyoming bans open containers in vehicles. South Dakota expands a program that requires repeat drunken drivers to check in at jails twice daily for breath testing. Supporters say it reduces jail costs and allows people to continue working, support their families and stay sober.

Health: New York City bans trans fats. Massachusetts' sweeping health care insurance law takes full effect, with everyone required to have health insurance — either with state help or purchased privately.

Children's Health: California bans soda sales on school campuses during school hours, and puts new limits on sugar and fat content in school food. Florida starts a one-year pilot program to test randomly for steroid use among high school athletes participating in football, baseball and weightlifting.

Cervical Cancer: Indiana schools must tell parents of sixth-grade girls about the link between human papillomavirus and cervical cancer, and about the availability of a new vaccine. North Carolina also requires schools to tell parents about the disease and the vaccine. Nevada requires insurers to cover the new vaccine.

Sex Education: Colorado bans abstinence-only sex education in all schools (except for one district), requiring schools to teach sex education based on scientific research and to include information on contraception.

Energy: Nevada and Minnesota encourage conservation and alternative energy. North Dakota begins a temporary tax break to spur the drilling of more oil wells in an area called the Bakken geologic formation.

Sex Offenders: Virginia requires convicted sex offenders to register their e-mail addresses with the state. Nevada forces certain sex offenders to live at least 1,000 feet away from schools and other places children gather. Connecticut creates a new crime for those who abuse a child under 13 that carries a 25-year prison sentence.

Showing ID:Tennessee requires everyone who buys beer at a store to show identification, regardless of their age.

War and Veterans: Minnesota provides state education assistance to veterans, or family members of dead or disabled veterans. Idaho limits protests at military funerals. Florida bars commercial use of names or pictures of service members without their permission or their families' permission, if they are deceased.

Immigration: Georgia's tough anti-illegal immigration laws kick in, requiring public employers with 500 or more employees -- and any contractors -- to verify that all new hires are in the country lawfully. The state also checks to make sure that anyone over age 18 who is receiving benefits is in the country legally. Idaho requires proof of legal residency for most forms of public assistance.

Abortion: Women seeking abortions in Georgia must be given a chance to see an ultrasound image of the fetus and listen for a heartbeat. In Mississippi, an abortion provider must perform a sonogram and give a pregnant woman the chance to listen to the heartbeat.

Minimum Wage: Illinois, Michigan and Pennsylvania were among the states that raised their minimum wage.

Sexual Orientation:Gays and lesbians are protected by Iowa's civil rights laws. Vermont bars discrimination against people who change their genders or discrimination based on whether they present themselves as a man or a woman.

Medical Marijuana: New Mexico legalized the medical use of marijuana. Rhode Island made permanent its medical marijuana program, which was to expire June 30. Vermont expanded the use of medical marijuana from only those with terminal diseases to those with some chronic diseases, too.

probably could have left most of that out.....but something like that I think should stay. if you don't want to pay a shit ton of money, don't break the law. it's that simple. not only does it help fund road construction and such, it will serve as a deterrant against speeding etc.
10 years ago
shit ton, is that more or less then a butt load? :)LOL
10 years ago
Yeah, ok, but the law is bullshit.

First. What is the point of the law. We've come to accept that there's all number of retarded shit laws, and we don't even ask why. There was a time when "ignorance of the law is no excuse" because the laws actually made sense and reflected the basics of what people believed was right and wrong, they weren't shit bought and paid for by various companies to increase their profits. But speeding laws are pretty simple and everyone knows about 'em. So why do the exist? To cut down on speeding? What is the justification? Does speeding hurt anyone?

It turns out, that it does not. Montana did away with limits on their freeways for several years, and experienced a decline in accidents and fatalities every year while they were gone. It resulted in the safest years on their roads, in terms of fatalities per miles travelled, in their history. But then the federal government threatened to cut their "safe highways" funding unless they put back the limits and enforced them again. So they did. Fatalities rose up and up and safety went down. The law results in more people dying. Speeding laws kill. So why the fuck should we have this bullshit "don't break the law if you don't want to pay"? The law kills, it's that fucking simple. Let's make a law that says you get fined $2000 unless you shoot some stranger once every two months. Gee, don't break that law. Fuckers.

No, the usual counterargument from fuckfaces at this point is that the speeding law prevents people from driving 155 mph through the city while yapping on a cell phone. No. We have dangerous driving, careless driving, etc, depending where you are. There are laws against posing a risk to people by driving badly. These do no require fucking radar guns! It's pretty obvious when someone is a hazard out on the roads, and it's not conditional on some fucking piece of equipment crossing the line between 55 and 56.

If you get a ticket, take it to court. No matter how small it is. Do that a few times and you will stop getting pulled over. If they can't profit off you, they will leave you alone.

fuck those kids, and fuck skateboarding. and fuck anyone that thinks that since they are 13 they can do what they want... if it were legal i'd kick the fuck out of each and every one of these little bastards who'se parents didnt teach them right... pieces of shit...

I would kick the kids to death, lock the girl in my basement, and hang the cop from a lightpost.
10 years ago
Listen. Iv'e seen every episode of cops. EVERYTIME that someone started to pull away from them when they were approached by police were handcuffed without question. If the person resisted when being handled were charged with resisting arrest. So i'm not sure how kids could get away with it if they abide by the same rules. The officer said they were violating City ordance by skateboarding and they just made it worse on themselves. If they wern't stupid they would have just gotten off the skateboard and not cause so much fuss about it.
