Yes. But I get to say where and how firmly.
Maybe the ghost of Martin Luther King needs one.
Wait, did I think that or type that?
Depends on who is offering the hug. :)
I would have called back “Can I have your badge number, officer?”
And then just taken the beating.
Seriously though, would the cop’s “reaction” be considered assault?
But with the video being “in the wild” like it is, I wonder if there isn’t already a lawsuit…
When’s the last time a cop actually got some meaningful discipline for fucking up?
Yep, ask for the badge number! Have done that myself, in San Diego. Cop calmed down faster than you can believe and gave me an apology.
Last time I asked a cop for his badge number:
“No, I’m not giving you my badge number.”
“Well, I’d like to have it. Do I have to file a freedom of information act request to get it?”
“You’re staring to piss me off.”
“Officer, may I please have you badge number?”
“You know what, leave now or I will arrest you for failure to disperse.”
Serving and Protecting, indeed.
Sorry, I am behind on answering comments! :)
Wow, can’t believe that officer said no! If you get close you should be able to see the number.
I was pulled over by the highway patrol for speeding, which I wasn’t. I was pretty ticked off cuz for one thing he didn’t stop the roadster that sped by ME in my little Escort. When the roadster passed me I looked at my speedometer as he passed me. The cop pulled me over when I looked up. He then proceeded to tell me, when I got upset that he pulled me over for nothing, that he didn’t want to hear my “f-ing” story.
I got madder and told him to, “GIVE ME THE TICKET” and he kept asking me if I wanted the ticked and I kept replying, “GIVE ME THE TICKET”. I knew his name would be on it. :) He backed off when I didn’t back off. This was at the time women were getting raped at night in San Diego by a fake police officer, it was all over the news. When we parted, after he apologized, I let HIM know that my brother is also a cop. Just for good measure. (My brother could not have done a thing, but it felt good saying it. just the same.)
Oh, now I get it. The first time I surfed to the post, there was no video. I saw it elsewhere. This cop needs a vacation or something.
According to the site linked below, the video is a fake. It was staged by two WV police officers.
