No. But they also silenced and clipped a large portion of the video, like they always do with these cop shows, so the announcer doesn`t have to wait to make his stupid comments.
2) If she would have pulled over in the first place, and explained, then she would have had a police ESCORT to the hospital, with sirens and everything. She wouldn`t have even needed to wait for stop-lights. I`ve had this HAPPEN before, where a cop pulled us over while we were taking someone to the emergency room, and he escorted us. But she didn`t, and the cop didn`t know what the situation was, so he was forced to assume that the driver had a reason to run from the police.
3) If she had been calm and responsive, instead of hysterical, the officer would have helped the man, then dealt with her. Which wouldn`t have been necessary if she`d pulled over in the first place.
Then the cop should have walk the lady back outside and start taking her info while medical people assist the passenger.
How? Where on earth do you get that idea, other than from existing hatred towards the law.
You know what I noticed straight away? Anything spoken between the cop and the woman which proves that SHE was in the wrong is dubbed over by the narration. Thus, we don`t find out the violation, where she was driving from, etc.
You know why? Because shows like this play on ratings...and they get ratings from all the cop haters out there. Simple truth.
What a Pig!
So you completely disregard any idea or comment that comes from someone who believes that some words should not be spoken in front of certain individuals or groups? I have a 6 year old nephew. I don`t really like to cuss in front of him. Does that mean you automatically have no respect for my opinions?
>Zerocyde, thank you for your liberal use of profanity. I`ve never read a more adorable tirade.
Your little passive aggressive suggestion is cute and all, but the fact that you even believe in the existence of profanity means that, unfortunately, you simply don`t have the ability to offer me anything worthwhile. Your opinion is simply moot to me unless you can find a way to boost your understanding a bit.
No silly, that wasn`t recent, that was when I was 16. That was, oh I dunno, 5 years ago??? (cough cough)
Really? Give us an example of such a circumstance. A man, able to walk around and hit a cop with a cane hard enough to BREAK it... where is this special circumstance that requires immediate attention?
However this whole situation could have been calmed down better if the cop had taken a different approach. He was asking useless questions, when he should have gotten the DL and Registration. He could traded off letting her get the wheel chair for those documents. Once he knows who they are, if they tried to pull some kind of escape he knows where they live.
How are schools paid for Down Under? They aren`t free in Australia, just like they aren`t free in America. Taxes pay for them.
Someone has to pay for those paramedics, someone has to pay for the upkeep of those vehicles. They are not "free" in any means.
There can be possibilities:1. she is lying (the cop is doing his job to stop her from doing anything else)2. she is not lying (the cop is delaying the treatment of the senior man)
As to whether or not the senior man was really injured or about to die does not matter. What matters is what the cop values more at that time. Is it the health of a person, or the crime of the other.
If the man happened to lose his life (scenario-wise), there would be no one to arrest. And the cop would regret it for the rest of his life.
Life is precious poo, so if one values crime over others life, then that person is the one putting others in danger.
Real life example:Me (age 16): Hi Uncle George, you don`t look happy, what`s up.George (Cop): Just got home from an accident.Me (16yo enthusiasm): Ooooh, how exciting!George: Exciting!? You could say that. First we had to get buckets and spades from the boot, then we had to scrape up any piece of skin, clothing or flesh we saw; then we took them back to the Station, spread them out on a large table, and spent the next 4 hours trying to work out which chunks used to be which person...
Your comment deleted. I invite you to resubmit it though, the point you were making was valid IMHO, but you just went overboard. Please, count to 10 first then give it to us again slightly more nicely.
cool story bro.
Two words back at you - PERMANENT BAN.Racism will NOT be tolerated on IAB douchebag.
That lady should`ve realized how serious the situation was when the cop got out of his car with his weapon drawn. Dumbass woman should`ve called an ambulance if it was a real emergency. And by the looks of it the man w/ the cane sure was getting around all right without the wheelchair.
And for idiots that say,"What? You guys have to PAY for ambulances? You live in a really f`ed up country..."
Yes we pay for ambulances, but we don`t get taxed to death like you guys in Europe.
LMAO that old man`s cane BROKE!
There`s got to be some solution to that, it can`t be THAT rare of a situation. Not many people have health insurance and ambulances cost thousands of dollars without it.
at deaths door outside the emergency room because someone didnt get the memo that martial law doesn`t apply today
Many valid points. My first thought was that this person was pulling into a hospital as an excuse, so I can only imagine the cop felt the same way. Monday morning quarterbacking is great when you`re not the one who has to worry if he`ll be going home to his kids that night. Don`t jump out of a car after aggresively evading a police officer, she`s lucky he didn`t lay her out.
