    I`m thankful we have police. Let`s see how quick these little cry babies would be calling 911 if they were in trouble.

    I don`t know if I would call it fail really, cargo pants, gloves, faces covered, and wearing hats, they were NOT trying to "disguise" so no one would see them but more like not wear uniforms for photography reasons. I give them credit for the restraint within the protest. I think they were there to insure that the protesters don`t fight or try to initiate uniformed police into a fight. ;)

    "No justice, no police, f*** the police" ?

    Real mature there kids. I`d like to see how their attitude toward police would change when they really them. For instance, When your drunken hippie bf starts slapping the crap out of you, Or when your scorned hippie gf breaks all your belongings by tossing them out her 3rd story window.

    The fail deserves to go to these protesters trying to provoke them.

    "F* the police"? Good God, I hope all these people get robbed and need to call the police. I value my first amendment right, but the police are just doing their jobs, why don`t these protesters go and get a job and fix their own problems.

    Protesting the G20 and G8 and any other G# is like protesting someone taking a huge dump. No matter what the protesters say or do, the person taking the dump will take a dump.

    Sorry Geogypsy. There is the odd "bad cop" out there, but 99% of the time, if you got beat, you deserved it.

    Cops are allowed to use force when necessary to control a situation. If the cop asks you to do something and you happily oblige, then everything goes smoothly. If he tries to cuff you to get things under control and you yell "get your hands off me" while flailing around like an idiot and yelling about your "rights" then you deserve a billy bat to the head.

    "Good God, I hope all these people get robbed and need to call the police."

    reminds me of my friend, he got pulled over (he had been smoking weed) for a dead tail light, officer was super nice to him said she was just giving him a heads up because she knows there are cops around who WILL ticket for it. as she walked away (his window still down) he says plenty loud "FN pigs", I was sitting in the passenger seat and hit him for it. the cop came back and wrote him a ticket for the tail light and `verbally assaulting an officer`. he got the tail light one dismissed but paid $80 for 2 unnecessary words

    To the ppl that say wait till these people need the police. I have been robbed 3 times, twice at gunpoint and once in a convenience store. Cops didnt do a thing to help any of these times. In fact, all 3 times i was told, after multiple phone calls to them, to leave them be so they can do there jobs. Since no 1 was ever arrested in any of these incidents i can only assume the "job" they wanted 2 get back 2 was there donut supply.

    First, I work in Oakland, where UofP is located. Overall, it wasn`t that crazy. Unless I missed it, exactly how do we know these "Chads" are police? The cops we saw were clearly identified and I can`t imagine the need for "undercover". Concerning brutality, there a rotten apples in every bunch. Isn`t that sterotyping labeling all the police as brutal? If we got rid of the police department, who is going to "serve and protect?" The one`s crying brutality? I think not.

    it`s weird they`re covering their faces and wearing leather gloves....and being way too silent. If they are plain-clothed cops (and not hit-men) they`re really bad at it :P

    I get really aggravated when people go on about how they hate the police. Like in the G20 riots in Toronto, people were screaming about how horrible the police were and throwing things at them, when these men and women were putting themselves out there to protect everyone else and make sure no one got seriously injured, and that downtown Toronto didn`t burn to the ground. We live in a world full plum of idiots.

    Could it be possible that far fewer people are willing to resist arrest when they`re on camera doing it? The camera is objective, it doesn`t favor anyone involved.

    and released that instant. Meanwhile, my boyfriend had made the bad judgement of calling 911 to report my incident and was taken into custody for obstruction of justice (the officer had taunted me about this. Why? I haven`t the foggiest). I do not for one minute doubt that the officer did what he thought was right. But he did have some strange presumptions. I think that it is possible that he had dealt with a tragic case of suicide in a young person before and was envisioning issues in me that weren`t there at all, probably due to post-traumatic stress. His superiors should have recognized this and given him the assistance he required. If anyone wants to argue with me that this isn`t police brutality, I challenge you to put yourself in my shoes and imagine how powerless and confused you may have felt in the same circumstances.

    Granted Patchouly, I did provoke my officer, certainly not intentionally, but the circumstances were just so bizarre...
    I had been hit by a car which fled the scene. I had a bad case of road rash and some bruising but was otherwise unscathed, minus the shock. It just so happened that an officer had seen the incident and fancied that I`d purposely gotten in the way of the car so he wanted to bring me in for a psychiatric evaluation. My concerned boyfriend told me to flee, so I hobbled away and was quickly overtaken and thrown to the ground for resisting arrest. This was on a busy street, concerned pedestrians formed a mob of sorts to protest my treatment but back-up was called to disengage the crowd. I spent the next 10 hours in cuffs awaiting my evaluation at the hospital. When a psych student finally assessed me, he realized that I hadn`t indeed tried to injure myself and grew enraged with the officer`s lack of regard over my physical injuries and demanded that I be uncuffed

    Geogypsy, he was trying to help you. That is not police brutality. If you run, it usually means there is a reason and the cops will chase and immobilize you. The more you fight, the stronger the force will be. That is mainly for the safety of the cop. A person who is disobedient enough to run may also be disobedient enough to have a gun or knife on them. A runner needs to be tackled and put down hard. This way, they are in a bit of shock while the cop gets the cuffs on.

    You may dislike the way it was handled, but the cop did the right thing. You did the wrong thing by running. Should he have taunted you later? No. But to be fair, if you gave him a really hard time, he may have done it because he is human and sometimes it`s hard not to act like one.

    I think Police have TO MUCH power. They can do what they want and all you can do is comply regardless if they are commiting and illegal act. If you resist in anyway you are wrong no matter the circumstances. These reason are why I do not feel bad for police killed in the line of duty. You push hard and long enough people will snap and push back, only difference when the people push back there will be consequences. Even after a cop breaks the law there are so many people in place to "get the off" that it is almost pointless to even try to fight the injustice.

    Patchouly, for what crime? I was the victim of a hit and run. No one made an attempt to go after the person who struck me. That was a perversion of justice and everyone who witnessed it agreed on that point.

    I was a sixteen year old, 110 lb girl who was wounded and in shock. I did not run, I hobbled because my boyfriend`s suggestion was the only voice of reason at the time.

    There was no fight, I did not yell, nor scream, nor flail my arms wildly nor touch the officer in any way.

    I should`ve been seen by a paramedic, not exaserbated by an unsound cop.

    Becuase you do not agree I am an idiot? I think that just proves how small minded you are. If you think the police do not have to much power and do not ABUSE that power regularly then you are either blind or you choose not to see it. Every day people are locked up and charged with crimes they never committed people are getting out of prison after 15+ years after it is proven they are innocent. When it happens to you, then you will understand until then continue to look the other way.

    Yeah, seriously, police officers are human beings. They are a group of human beings. When one says, "f*** the police," it`s essentially the same as saying "f*** the asians," or "f*** the blacks," or the whites, or any other ethnic group. It`s wrong. The only reason people say it so much is because it`s popular to say, like how saying, "f*** the gingers," is extremely popular to say. People should knock it off.

    I mean obviously now I`m all the wiser now and wouldn`t dare leave an officer in the middle of his questioning.

    Luniz82, if you really don`t want to get arrested "for no reason", don`t commit a crime by going around saying "drat the police".

    Yes innocent people get locked up for OTHER people`s crimes. Yes the ploice takes it too far on many occasions. But FFS, they`re just human, and I approve the beating up of humans.

    @Luniz Sorry, I was calling you an idiot for saying you don`t feel bad that police officers are killed in the line of duty, because they force people to comply to arrests. Why am I calling you an idiot? Because the people KILLING the police officers aren`t INNOCENT people we want to protect. There are ways of changing the laws etc that govern police action without going out and KILLING THEM. Police officers make split decisions in the moment, based on the information they have. Some may look back on those actions and feel them regretable, but they did what they thought was right in the moment. People can make mistakes, these aren`t robots you`re talking about.

    Oh and yeah, people who were innocent get out 15+ years later because new evidence comes in, or because of advances in technology. That has nothing to do with the police officers, that`s the court system.

    you telling me that had never been planted evidence or false testimony by the police? The police do not Profile unjustly? What is a civilian to do when they cannot protect themselves from the law? Sure they might just be "humans" but still the have power over you and choose to abuse it, what can you do to protect yourself? Nothing. So yeah people get tired of it and strike back regardless if they are guilty at that time or not. Like Madest said that is plenty of proof to my claims on youtube. Ask the victims families of the people that were shot and killed by police for? What being the home owner? Being on a motorcycle and showing you back to the police? Or better yet complying and laying on the gound yeah that guy deserved to be shot in the back. But hey give the police a break. They should be able to physically abuse and torment anyone they want, we should let it happen and smile then stick up for them. I mean hey they only do it for our own good.

    "Contempt of cop" is not a crime in the US. It does, however, get on their nerves it`s still no excuse for use of excessive force. They are in a position of trust and if they violate it (and we have proof) they get the boot.

    BTW, I don`t really understand what happened in this video that constituted a fail.

    I also hope that the whole thing is secretly filmed so people see that you would be the first person to call the police.

    But one can only dream....


    Also, did anyone listen to what those retarded protesters were saying? Their message was "drat the police", I`m sorry but that is hardly a message, and even if it were to qualify it is also extremely lazy.

    It is like saying "I think I am not supposed to like this, but since I cannot come up with any good reason for me to be so, and since I am so dumb I cannot come up with any sort of options for a solution....I`ll just walk around saying "drat it" for a few hours and kill some time"

    its better to be young and naive than old and bitter, you seem to betray your own age by assuming everything is bad and saying over and over, "the system isn`t absolutely perfect! wahhhhhh cops are evil! we should protest and by protest I mean complain about it without offering anything constructive to the issue!"

    how about you stop pretending everyone in the world is out to get you and realize that the world does not actually feature police sitting in dark alleyways waiting for you to come by and beat you down.

    The fact that they dress up like this during a rally of this type shows how out of touch with civilians they are.

    Madest, the actual case of Jewell, puts the blame more squarely on effectively: Angry mobs of people yelling without thinking.


    It was the people and the media who ruined his life. The police said he was a suspect, then said he wasn`t.

    It is the people you are actually cheering on that "ruined his life".

    You know what, don`t bother responding, we`ll just all pretend it was the police. You`ve already done so, and the facts won`t change it.

    It was the police. Who never arrested him, convicted him, or charged him.

    Everyone else who isn`t Madest can just read the link.

    Fourth sentence. (FBI, not police).
    Fifth sentence. (Know implies facts, not mere statements).
    Sixth sentence. (Maybe? Make a statement).
    And your seventh. (No, only real corrections).

    Anything else?

    I`m actually on baals side here. If it will make people buy the newspaper they`re sure as heck going to name someone as a suspect; who? Doesn`t matter, anyone who`ll draw the most attention will do.

    And to everyone wishing harm on others just so their dying breath will be one of defeat and begging for help, it doesn`t matter. Anyone can kill you at any time no matter how many police or law enforcement you have. If someone really wants to kill you, even at the expense of his or her own life, nothing will be able to stop them.

    And of course all of this is silliness. No one actually grows up anymore everyone just complains. Anything that happens that could have been avoided and wasn`t is pure silliness and just further proof that we aren`t fit as a species to call ourselves humane, civilized, or intelligent.

    Why would I turn to wikipedida for education?

    Also, I think we have different definitions on what a printing press can and can`t do. Yes, they cannot, in the eyes of the law state someone to be a suspect and expect police to go through with it, however, to lie about it only takes a few keystrokes. I think that`s what baal was trying to communicate.

    @Madest
    I think what Baal was pointing out was that the media has that effect on the masses. Even though the Justice system found no wrong doing, just the mere fact he was a "suspect/person of interest" was enough for the media to label him as a culprit.

    That`s a stretch. Certain people can kill you at any time not just anyone.

    Cajun247,

    Yes, I admit not everyone can kill you at anytime. I was going for exaggeration for effect (something I do sometimes without realizing it, that is my fault and I apologize). It does not, however, detract from the point that no amount of police intervention (unless they decide to put you in protective custody, which, at that point becomes a matter of time you can stand to live in a brick room) can protect you from the guy that wants to kill you at all costs. It`s a limitation that cannot be exhumed, fixed permanently until we find another way of solving the problem. Police are there on the premise that someone won`t kill you as long as there are repercussion, something that doesn`t stand up very well in today`s world anymore.

    That somehow points to this (maybe crazy yet) strange irony I see in humans. We`re willing to work with each other (doesn`t mean we always do) yet not agree to any specific rules expressed in written words or by mouth. One thing is for sure everyone has an agenda (which is not always a bad thing). People don`t complain about the rules if it is in line with their agenda and do if it is (and will sometimes break them).

    I think Police have TO MUCH power. They can do what they want and all you can do is comply regardless if they are commiting and illegal act. If you resist in anyway you are wrong no matter the circumstances. These reason are why I do not feel bad for police killed in the line of duty. You push hard and long enough people will snap and push back, only difference when the people push back there will be consequences. Even after a cop breaks the law there are so many people in place to "get the off" that it is almost pointless to even try to fight the injustice.

    i admit that what the police are doing can be wrong i mean they pretty much live rule free but i bet in the beginning they were just some people with a gun that eventuality went power crazy and now people have to abide my there laws they make. everyone saying that there doing wrong then get put in there position would be likely to do the same thing...make there job easer for them. i mean imagine what the first police force had in mind something along the lines of "we need justice for the people" in other words pretty much the exact same thing your saying

    People who protest confuse me. I don`t recall anything positive that came from protesting, other than Ghandi. If you want to bring change, write a petition, get it signed, advocate to the government, geez just about anything other than protesting. All these have worked wonders. You go and protest, you`re just asking to get beat up by riot police.

    No sympathy here. Even if they were "peacefully protesting", they were asking for it. You want to peacefully protest? Write a letter to the government.

    Oh, I just got back to this.
    Cajun: no, contempt of a cop isn`t TECHNICALLY a crime, the theory behind it is if you make a cop mad, they will find a way to get you into trouble. For example, if a cop gives me a speeding ticket, and I flip him the bird as I`m driving away, he could pull me over again for "failing to make a right turn."
    Sure, I could fight it in the courts, but judges tend to favor police officers over people that flip police officers the bird.

    "I don`t recall anything positive that came from protesting"
    Except maybe...
    -Labor unionization, strike over unfair treatment..
    -US civil rights movement...
    -US pullout of Vietnam...
    Or, within your own lifetime: African Apartheid ban.

    In fact, when it comes to major civil injustice, I`ve never seen any change that came from just a letter without protest or protest without notification.

    However, every protest I`ve ever heard of becoming violent caused even more oppression to occur.
    Examples: Ireland by England or Palestinian oppression by Israel. That would so be over if Hezbollah were not involved.

    How are Ireland and England doing without Sinn Fein trying to blow shi# up? (or at least not the way it used to be with the "Do not pick up unattended packages" signs...)

    haha, one time i went to my schools stoner park one off hour and there was an odd bunch of middle aged men dressed as cholos hanging around by the playground, i knew what was up and started doing pig squeels, 5 minutes later that got picked up by a black SUV and a few minutes later a couple of bicycle cops rolled up and started harassing me and my friends and acussed us of smoking pot, haha close call, but my point is, undercover cops are fairley easy to point out.
