“Just a Good Guy…With a Few Bad Habits”

Punks and Police Officers

with 64 comments

I’m still trying to figure out what officer Salvatore Rivieri did wrong. A disrespectful punk gets mouthy with a police officer and gets chewed out and pushed around a little, SO WHAT?

I believe the kid when he says he doesn’t have a father, it’s obvious he is being raised by a woman, probably one with food stamps.

When I was growing up you didn’t talk back to cops, you showed them respect and if you didn’t you got your head handed to you. Then, when your dad found out about, you got your ass whipped again. We lived in a more polite society because of it.

What really disturbs me, however, are the amount of people commenting in favor of this punk kid. It certainly doesn’t bode well for our future as a nation.

  1. We need more officers like him….

  2. You are both a bunch of fools. Regardless of how it was in your day, police officers do not have the right to put their hands on you, particularly simply because some kid is being “disrespctful”. If you have to beat respect out of someone, maybe you simply dont deserve that respect. Either way, fuck the police … this dude is just short of worthless and i find it appauling he still has a job. If this was okay with you, at what point would it have been over the line? When he punched the kid? When he broke a wrist, or arm? Maybe he should of just beat the kid until he was physically unable to speak, that way the disrespectful connotations of “dude” wouldnt have been so harshly felt. Im gonna go out on a limb here and say youre a middle class, middle aged, white man … probably some blue collar republican in the heart on Kentucky. And your only sentiment is that “kids are punks” and “you will respect your elders”. Well this is what i have to say. FUCK YOU. I hope the next time this happens its your son getting attacked. I hope some high and mighty police officer with his all mighty badge knocks your son out with a nightstick. Then tell me we need more officers like him. What we need is less of you … less of him … and none of everything you stand for.

  4. Way to go Scolai, ya pissed off another whiny liberal piss ant by actually agreeing that this kid was a snot nosed brat who needed a bit of scolding and to be put in his place. Was the cop a touch arrogant- perhaps. But lets see, the kid was doingsomething in a place clearly posted that its not allowed. That would mean he ignored the ordiinance. The cop did his job.
    The whole ” dude” issue is pretty simple. We need more “yes sir” and “no sir” and tp rid our society of the word “dude”.

    So,”does it matter” – yes it does. You can go back and surf moveon.org and I’m sure you will find another friend there to go along with your victim mentality. Poor little white boy got yelled at by the big mean policeman….Mommmmmmy- call a lawyer.

    Interesting that this happened last summer, yet the video just now surfaces.

    Back when colored folk had separate drinking fountains? You are a moron. Snot-nosed, ill-mannered or not, that kid did not warrant the physical action that bully of an overzealous cop unleashed. Here’s hoping the next cop you encounter decided to sodomize you, just so you both know who gets the respect.

    You are moron #2. Have you ever gone a little faster in traffic than you KNOW you shouldn’t? How would you feel then if you were pulled over and the cop yanks you out by the neck and throws you on the ground? If the kid were spitting, flailing his board at that fat pig’s face, kicking or somehow ACTUALLY threatening Baltimore’s Biggest Bully….then you could argue the cop had a reason to place a 14 YEAR OLD CHILD (and an obvious small and weak one at that, I was already 6’2″ when I was 14) into a headlock, throw him onto the ground and then threaten him with more physical violence. This POS hopefully-soon-to-be ex-cop is nothing more that a loser with a badge picking on little kids. I SERIOUSLY and WHOLE-HEARTEDLY hope, wish and pray that YOU are attacked by some gangbanging street thugs and they knock your ass down and makes you show THEM RESPECT. Maybe then there’s a chance you’ll have the slightest indication of why it was wrong for your good buddy Shitatore Rivieri to do that.

    Given what you two dumb, ignorant, poor excuses for HUMANS wrote, I doubt either one of you would get it. God, I hope bad things happen to you and your families, so MAYBE you will have the chance to join the human race, you f**bag pieces of S**t.

  8. Regardless of whether or not the kid needed to be put in his place it is in no way the police officer’s right to touch him. I dont necessarily agree with the kid, but the fact of the matter is that the video amounted to misdemeanor assault. Any way you want to twist it he was assaulted. Maybe its going to take your ass getting fucked up by a cop before you realize it. Or maybe that will never happen with your “no sir” ‘s and “yes sir” ‘s. What do they call that? I think they call that being a little bitch. Or is it not having the balls to stand up for yourself? No … its called being a bitch.

  9. Sweet Baby Christ on a Throne!!

    The above two nut bag consummate black victims had to bring this to a race debate. Probably the same two who idolize Malice Green and Hot Rod King. Again proof that the mindless sheep fodder that have their collective victim outstretched hands firmly placed and delicately cuffing Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson’s overused adulterous male parts. Who only take their hands off of the aforementioned man bits long enough to get a hand out because of their own perceived persecution. Leave it to a “Victim” to honestly believe that by knocking someone down they are getting respect which sounds strangely familiar when you are talking about a cop who knocked someone down. You are advocating the use of violence for street thug butt bangers however admonish the same tactic by a cop. Or are you merely suggesting a white man live by the different rule as a black man that’s its perfectly acceptable for a wanna be tuff guy butt banger?

    I suggest you report to night class to obtain your GED and leave the real thinking to someone else. You victims are the same ones that cry all over the news because the cops didn’t get there fast enough to stop a gang banger from shooting another….which is the absolute perfect definition of Darwinism. So which is it going to be you want cops around or you don’t there is no middle ground here.

  11. Was the kid a snot nosed punk? – probably
    Did he know he was doing something against the law? – absolutely
    Was Rivieri right in stopping them and questioning them – Yep
    Did he handle it like a massive fuckwit – yes, yes he did.

    While I too would be pissed off if I was forced to wear that gay yellow uniform and drive the golf cart around the tourist areas while my buddies get to fuck around in the Crown Vics and Chargers it wouldn’t give me an excuse to show up on the scene like super douche and decide to be the big guy busting 14 year old heads.

    You want to fuck with the kid load him in the, albeit gay, police cart take him to the station call his mom or whoever to come get him. Confiscate the board and threaten a court date and fine. I know all the hard asses are going to call pussy on that but lets be honest, pussies by definition get fucked. The only person that got fucked here was Rivieri.

  12. I think these two wimps might have some French heritage- on second though,no, I wouldnt even dis the French in that manner. Hooligan, you owe me a cup of coffee, cuz while reading your comment and trying to sip the aforementioned beverage, I spit it all over my monitor, and laughed till my sides ache. Too funny. Great post. oh, back to dumb and dumber-

    Lets just say for starters, that a simple “yes sir or no sir” would diffuse the situation and there would be no confrontation. Its a simple matter or respect, which in this case, it is quite clear this kid was never taught respect for authority, or his elders. In my upbringing, if I EVER referred to a police officer or another adult as “dude” my Dad would have busted me one in the chops . End of story. Thats the problem with the government educated kids these days, they are fed so much victim mentality, alternative this and that, they have no respect for anyone. I wonder whsat would have happened if I had referred to my boot camp drill instructor as “dude” instead of “sir”. Scolai, wanna take a shot at that one?

    As Hooligan points out, you guys want cops when its to your advantage, then want to bash them when its to someone elses. You go so far to wish bodily harm on myself, and my family.

    “I SERIOUSLY and WHOLE-HEARTEDLY hope, wish and pray that YOU are attacked by some gangbanging street thugs and they knock your ass down and makes you show THEM RESPECT.”

    Now thats a mature way to disagree with someone. Its a crying shame your mother wasn’t Pro choice. Apparently you survived Roe vs. Wade. How unfortunate.

  15. Scolai, truth be told … its none of your business if i choose to engage in beastiality with domesticated animals. And no, im not covered in honey. Its only my genitals … want some baby? Or is that a little too liberal for you? Doesnt anyone find it amusing that everyone’s support for the po-lice comes down to “uhhhh … well, back in my day I had respect for authority”. This isnt a question of whether or not you respect authority, its a matter of whether or not you respect yourself enough to say something when authority is unlawfully whooping your ass. But i guess that question has been answered … now go sit back down on the right side of the table with Senator Byrd and shut your mouth. Im sorry, you can “yes sir”.

    Im going to end with a simple question. And please, at least attempt to say something and dont just spurt nonsense about your obvious self hatred for doing poodles. If the cop could have done that, what couldnt he have done? Please, be specific. Could he have punched the kid? thrown him down some steps? hit him with the skateboard? I would LOVE to know.

    February 14, 2008 at 5:02 pm

  16. Actually im not done. Why does this bullshit argument against “punk kids” always come down to respect your elders? Why shouldnt we all respect everyone else? Why shouldnt an elder show respect for a teen? Are these the same elders that 40 years ago found it unecessary to respect African Americans? The same elders that thought women shouldnt be able to vote? Fuck you. You act like your shit doesnt stink cause youve been here a couple years more. I call that outdated. Fact of the matter is, get pissed off all you want … quote me your AARP client number … conservatism is a synonym for all that will be left behind … all that is clinging on by a thread with “when i was a kid”. When you were a kid black people were still getting hung. When you were a kid we knew half of what we know now. If you havent noticed civilization progresses toward liberal views. And us teens … well be the little fucking punks laughing when your old, conservative, bow-tie wearing, wrinkly ball having, snitch ass bitch ass bout to get a kicked ass, piece of shit carcas is getting lowered into the ground. And it will be our generation telling you what the fuck to say and do. Fuck you and accept that children are everything you wish, dream and want to be … but you wouldnt dare accept our ways because it would demean everything you are. Its really ok though .. hahaha … just hang on grandpa … just hang on … only a couple more years and social security will start coming in. Youll be a certified senior citizen and can moan, whine, cry, bitch, and yell from behind that $80 alluminum walker. Maybe if youre lucky we wont run up and break your legs.

  17. Uh…My father taught me to respect my elders. He also taught me to question aggressive authority. He also taught me that adults shouldn’t beat-up on children. Now, I may be a little testy if I had to drive around in the clown car and wear Dangle’s uniform, but I would never stoop so low as to pick on someone smaller than me. “Here comes the clown police. Real perps scare me so I check parking meters and hassle kids that weigh half my size. Oh…let me revise that to “CheckED” and “HasslED”. ”
    Maybe you “Respectful” types should give the guy a job. I heard he is hungry.

  18. To answer the question at the end of your first attempt to quit making an ass of yourself; What could he have done? Anything within reason to get this kid to respect himself enough to respect others. Particularly those charged with protecting his sorry ass.
    As for “elders who found it unnecessary to respect African Americans”, do you mean democrats? Republicans passed the 1964 Civil Rights Bill over major democrat opposition.
    As to the rest of your Master P inspired rant… it isn’t interesting enough to merit a response. I will say that I wish you lived in a state with a good “regimented inmate disipline program” a taste of military life would do wonders in curing your twisted, pollyanna as crack whore world view.

    thescolai

    February 14, 2008 at 5:42 pm

  19. scolai, the civil rights bill of 1964 was passed the house with a democratic record of 152-96. That is hardly Democratic opposition. In the Senate, the bill passed 73-27. At the time, the Senate was 66-34 Dems/Republicans. 20n Dems and 6 Reps voted against the bill. I love how you Republicans don’t check facts.

    Liberal, I'm Sure..,.

    February 14, 2008 at 6:12 pm

  20. In fact, all but a few of the Northern Dems voted for the bill, it was the Southern Dems who were against it. Many of those Southern Dems would be Republicans now. The parties have changed. The monikers are irrelevant.

    Liberal, I'm Sure...

    February 14, 2008 at 6:34 pm

  21. hahaha … you tickle me. So the officer could have done “Anything within reason to get this kid to respect himself enough to respect others”, however in doing that he manages to show no respect to others, a completely hypocritical stance. And the fact remains, right, wrong, left, conservative, democratic, republican … HE ASSAULTED A MINOR. Can police beat your children?

    And i should have expected you republicans to attempt to solve everything with a “taste of military life”. Not only is that completey irrelevant, but you continue to run from the fact that an assault took place.

    does it matter?

    February 14, 2008 at 6:34 pm

  22. Maybe you didnt understand what the word “specific” meant. You say whatever was within reason, the argument here is that he didnt act withing reason. Maybe if your dumb ass was schooled at some point you wouldnt argue a point with the question posed in the first place.

    does it matter?

    February 14, 2008 at 6:36 pm

  23. Also, if you headlocked fatty and took his clowncar, you would be in jail for battery (and carnival theft.) Cops don’t have the right to violate your rights. You silly bastards keep talking about “When you need the Cops…” These kids needed a real cop RIGHT THEN! It is as if you think someone’s job title dictates their behavior. I guess you believe public officials are always honest and priests never touch children. It’s not the good cops we should worry about. Persons in positions of authority should strive to take the moral highroad, which includes tolerating some crap. I have known a number of fine police officers and I have been asked to leave an area for skating. I have never seen kids disrespect a cop that didn’t disrespect them first.

    Liberal, I'm Sure...

    February 14, 2008 at 6:44 pm

  24. So, you’re telling me that 20 of 66 democrat Senators (nearly a third of those seated) voted against the bill, 96 Representatives (over a third of those seated in the House) followed suit, and this dosen’t constitute opposition?

    Do your research. It was Howard Smith, DEMOCRAT, Virginia, who led the charge to block the bill in the house. And James Eastland, DEMOCRAT, Mississippi, who threatend to do the same in the Senate.
    After signing the bill democrat President Lyndon Johnson is said to have stated:”We have lost the South for a generation.” Why? Because there were DEMOCRAT majorities in every Southern state!

    Republicans? Here’s a little background for you Peaches: I am a Conservative, not a Republican.

    February 14, 2008 at 6:44 pm

  25. Nearly a third constitutes a 2/3 majority. Well, generally when someone starts ranting about parties, I assume that’s what they are talking about. The “Conservatives” of the period were Dems but are now Republicans. How do you feel about gay marriage?

    Liberal, I'm Sure...

    February 14, 2008 at 6:55 pm

  26. Also, the Republican record in the Senate was a whopping 13% off of the Dem record. For the record, I am fiscally conservative, but not an asshole.

    Liberal, I'm Sure...

    February 14, 2008 at 6:56 pm

  27. “Liberal, I’m Sure” and “does it matter”,
    I actually enjoy your enthusiasim and opinions, however wrong headed. Had I been educated in the outcome based manner that I am sure both of you were, I might even feel the same (not really but I am nothing if not kind to the handicapped).

    I would like to revisit this topic with you in 20 years, after you have had the chance to have actually had a life in the real world. Not the MTV facsimile there of. I assure you that once you have had to fend for yourself and to provide for a family, without government assistance, you will feel diferently than you do today.

  32. Ironic how every debate with a liberal instantly turns to name calling and finger pointing. Heres an idea… debate something on the relative merits of your arguement.
    The skateboarding 14 y/o in my household watched the video and said the kid was a dope, he should have shut his mouth and done what he was told. Unforutnately these are the disruptive smart mouth kids that teachers have to deal with every day, ever wonder where the uterus donor is in this genetic nightmare ? what about the sperm donor ?
    To argue for the kid is ovarian logic at its best, the feminization of America where everything is done based on feelings and no one ever says NO or calls bullshit on their kids obnoxious behavior. Maybe Mom should drag herself away from the free Govt cheese long enough to make some feeble attempt at steering this kid into a productive life, I doubt it though… genetics being what they are.

    olereliable

    February 14, 2008 at 7:31 pm

  34. Asssault? Hardly. I think the kid should have got his mouth slapped. As is typical with these types of video, all the preceeding events are edited out and then whats left is given a spin. Lets not forget, the cop was enforcing an ordinance, and the kid runs his piehole.

    But you whiney libs think spankin your kids is child abuse too. Thats the problem, too many pansies letting their kids run their world, afraid to discipline them for fear of upsetting the child. Then when little Johnny gets his undisciplined ass in trouble, instead of addressing the problem, you want to blame the police . Then little Johnny gets the message that rules don’t matter, nor do those who are charged with enforcing them. If little Johnny would have taken his skateboard somewhere else, like where its allowed, he wouldnt have any problems now would he?

    The votes took place in 1964, not 1966. Please slow down and actually read that to which you are replying.

    Assualted? I much rather prefer to think of it as a young miscreant being “schooled”, to use the ghetto vernacular.

    My Education? I believe a classical education, coupled with 30 plus years productive employment, tends to trump anything coming out of today’s “Show me the money and I’ll show you a degree” system of higher education.

    I’ve heard Hokie girls are HOT! And easy. Wouldn’t your time be better spent in pursuit of one of them?

    About the vote on who was the majority in the civil rights stuff, who cares.
    Assaut? No. If you listen to the begining the officer already told them to move on and they chose not to. The officer tells the kid to give him his board, the kid pulls away.
    The officer could be going after “real perps” if he wasnt busy dealing with the kids.
    If that was my kid, would I be pissed. Yes. I would be so pissed that I would take my boy right down to the police station and find that officer and make my son tell the officer he was sorry for being a pain in the ass and keeping you from doing your job because I was being a little shit, and it wont happen again.

    If you were able to reproduce, I feel sorry for the little shits you call children, because their parent is a fucking class-A moron. If a teacher forces them to take it up the ass and they complain, you’d drag them to school with a jar of vaseline and make them take it again with RESPECT.

  46. Well, here is some more background. I spent two years in New Orleans living with the dregs of the welfare state. They are the laziest people in America, period. I still own a house there, which I bought when I arrived and have had for five years. I am married, no children yet, an ex-mechanic finishing my BS at LSU (I’m not from Louisiana, just being productive here). The wife and I are in the highest income tax bracket and we are self-made people.

    olereliable, scolai started with the name calling.

    It is just as ridiculous to call me liberal as it is to call you republican, I guess. I’m not here to fight, just discuss, and I apologize for my previously combative tone. Nothing is accomplished without a true meeting of the minds to offer different ideas, just look at the current administration. While I don’t agree with the use of Terror Alerts and such to gain support for eavesdropping, etc., I think the main problem in the Bush administration is that he is surrounded by “Yes” men. Nobody ever tells him, “No, this may not be the best of ideas.”

    As far as the 1984 reference, how do you feel about warrantless wiretaps and all this other invasive, big government bologna in the name of national security? As far as I’m concerned, the terrorists can’t come close to making a dent in the American population. Where have our balls gone? Now we have to take our clothes off and stand in cattle corrals at the airport, for what? People aren’t worried about an attack on America, they are worried that they will lose their own precious, little life.

    I agree that parents these days are leaning further towards protecting their children, no matter the fault. It posed real problems for my mother-in-law who recently retired from teaching school. She can’t tell a kid anything without the parents coming in and screaming at her, but I feel like the above case is different. The kid was in a public place (not school where a teacher is in charge), didn’t hear what the cop said, and the cop thought he would get away with it. This shit happens all the time. I believe respect is a two-way street, even for cops.

    America was founded on the principals of dissent and questioning authority. I see the cops as government and authority, and therefore I have a healthy distrust. Power(even yellow shirt and shorts, clown car power) corrupts a large number of those who attain it. Fuck that cop. The kid probably will “get his” at a later date, but that cop was wrong. He is a pussy for even getting worked-up by a 14 year-old, who are generally less respectful than others. I’d like to see him react when somebody is pissed about getting a parking ticket. I’d bet there will be no scolding and headlocking. And “Someone may kill you for saying dude.”? Fucking ridiculous.

  47. Liberal, I’m Sure,
    Thank you for a very well reasoned reply. It’s obvious we disagree on this particular situation, but at least you took the time to explain your position. I believe the story, as depicted in the video, is only half the picture. I would love to see raw footage of the events that led to what was filmed.

    We have a skate park near my home and it is an unending source of conflict. Not because adults and authority figures are hassling kids, but because the kids are often heard screaming profanities, observed destroying public property and, in two incidences, intentionally exposing themselves to neighboring property owners.

    As far as certain security measures go… some I agree with, some I don’t. I think we can both agree stripping down in an airport, in front of a guy in a turban, is insulting to any American. More so to those of us in the fire service. I will admit that I am not as concerned with warrantless wire taps. As long as they stay focused on those here with visas and people with known ties to terrorist organizations, I will continue to withhold judgement.

    Best of Luck with your studies, I hope you continue to check in on this site.

  49. I think where we part ways is in the preamble to what you actually see on tape. The whole taping smells of a setup. I believe a couple of things happened. The cop tried to speak to the kids from a distance and the subject of the scolding blew him off and ignored him (the repeated phrase of can you hear me now leads me to that). I would also be willing to bet that this isnt the first time that kid and this cop and others have had this discussion. My source tell me that taping of skating sessions has become a regular thing so the presence of the camera doesnt indicate anything to me other than a normal skating session. I would be interested to see the taped portion that preceeds this video, I bet it would be enlightening.
    I have one boy that has passed being 14 and another that is ass deep in being 14rs old, trust me when I say you need to keep a strong hand with them at this age. I dont advocate corporal punishment but I will put the boot to the ass when called for. I recieve compliments regularly on how well mannered my kids are, it didnt happen all by itself.

  51. Big surprise about your buddy Officer Dude Shitatori…..there’s ANOTHER video that surfaced providing yet another example of how much of a bully this fat pig is. Apparently the video was shot by a guy filming people’s reactions to a box moving around, by the radio control car he had under it. Office Asshole comes along and kicks the box and then the car. Something tells me this prick had a really shitty childhood and now he wants to make everyone attempting to have fun feel like shit too. You guys belong together.

  52. just saw this. Good job Scolai. Fun to post something that gets action like this. Especially when you’re not just saying to get folks riled up but you really believe it. Growing up in the same family line as you I absolutely have off the charts respect for Police. I really don’t put this guy in the category of respectable police officers though. One of your earlier commenters (BK) said it right. The kid was probably messing around, he should have been stopped. . . AND the rent a cop here is a total and complete TOOL. He’s an idiot and I’m not sure how anyone could think otherwise. This guy clearly just has trouble squeezing into his bike shorts and it makes him be a tad bit aggressive. Way over the line.

  53. Here ya go dumbass. Here’s another video of YOUR good buddy Officer Dude Rivieri being a bullying asshole. You two should get together and shoot puppies’ eyes out or something.

  54. ole reliable Sorry, I didn’t realize that labeling someone a fool is akin to calling someone a lopsided taint elf(creative though).

    does it matter? I grew up in Kentucky. Central Kentucky. Lexington Kentucky. It is about as cosmopolitan as it gets. I currently live in Louisiana. If you want to insult people for being backwards, talk about deep southern idiots. The people you are referring to are from Eastern Kentucky known as Hillbillies.

    John, when you attack people, you get no respect back. Isn’t that what this whole thing is about? Who should be kissing who’s ass? I’m thinking there should be no ass kissing, just a quick business deal.

    With that said, how about that second video? I will watch it as soon as my connection speeds up (country).

  55. LMAO….like I need or want respect from sorry pieces of crap like Scolai. I’m not Officer Dude Shitatori.

    As for the 2nd video of Baltimore’s Biggest Bully…I posted the link, but here it is again:

  57. I’m assuming that since he’s been suspended from duty, somebody fairly high up in the organization thinks he did something wrong. If it was otherwise they’d be holding a press conference and giving him glowing accolades for good police work

  58. Police officers are not above any laws. No one should just automatically “give respect” to someone who does not deserve it.
    Scolai, I don’t think you actually believe that that 14 year old boy is in the wrong, I think you’re just trying to get a reaction-I don’t think you’re dumb enough to side with the bully.
    But no one can have an actual debate about it anyway because practically everyone posting comments here is just calling whoever doesn’t agree with them a “liberal” or “left wing” or “right wing”.
    Do you guys actually put yourselves in categories like this?
    Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Al Franken, and the rest of the windbag TV personalities are there to entertain. Please don’t try to be them whenever debating with someone who has a different opinion than you. The last thing we need is more closed minds.

    PS. The cop is 100% out of line in the situation.

  59. I love it when rednecks blog using their “big mean words”. Just call everyone a liberal and blah blah blah the rest. Seriously, the cop beat up a little kid and stole his stakeboard. But anyway, “s” you don’t get an opinion. After all you are a redneck, not a human being.

    Heh heh! “left wing mental pygmies” did you think up those words all by yourself? This is why USA has fallen behind, well… everyone!

  60. What the officer did wrong was handle a situation where he was in the right in the wrong way. Should the children have been riding their skateboards in these areas? Absolutely not. Should they have listened and stopped IMMEDIATELY when the officer asked them to? Most assuredly. When they violated the rules and then ignored the officer, did they deserve a berating? Probably.

    On the other hand, he shouldn’t have grabbed this CHILD. And his attitude is only going to create more problems in and of itself. I know that I was raised to say yes sir and no sir, but I was also taught that I only had to respect those who respect me. You may fear others, but you don’t respect them. This officer is no gentleman and he does not deserve respect.

    I believe that officers will have far more respect if they treat those in the community with the same.

    And, since my political beliefs will surely be questioned by one side or the other: I don’t believe that political parties are beneficial and don’t support any of them, but I am most assuredly not a democrat and my beliefs are closest to the libertarian’s.

  61. Thank all of you who supported the police in this matter. I wonder how many people this cop beat for disrespect before he was filmed. The scary part is you who agree with him.

    My age, politics, and sexual preference having nothing to do with this issue but I’m sure there are those of you who will call them into question because I disagree with you, as you don’t support the Bill Of Rights or my freedom of speech.

    The COP assaulted a 14 year old boy (regardless of how many parents the boy has at home) which is a violation of the law. Had it been one of my children I would be in jail for making the cop eat some concrete.

    For those of you who agree with the cop I hope you get a night stick across your head the next time you deal with the police or better yet, shot, for not stopping at a stop sign.

    A bully in a police uniform is still a bully.

  63. the kid didn’t even mouth off at the officer, the cop went fuckin ballistic and put his hands on a kid unnecessarily. He called him “dude” and then the cop says he being defensive and starts yelling?? the cop had no right to assault the kid and yell the way he did. If he would’ve just calmly told them to leave, and not try to be a power hungry asshole, then none of this would have happened. the cop should’ve been fired, end of story.
