    We all have some of those horror stories.

    #1. When I worked on a HUD Security contract, we had a guy speed through the apt complex recklessly while little kids were runnning and playing all over the place. My partner and I simply asked the guy to slow down as he was getting out of his car, and he apologised and said "ok". Then his "boys" started ragging on him and he turn around and started talking smack. It was the HUD account, so of course we have 8 S/Os on duty, next thing you know the other 6 guys and girls on our shift show up, then people start coming out of apartments like roachs running from light.

    Turns out this guy is the grandson of "the Vice President of the resident's association" (big whoop lady, you're on Section 8 like everyone else here.....) and here she comes asking for our names. I wanted to tell her soooo badly that it was her excuse making for the boy that contriubted to the fact that he was a crack head, but i like my job so i didn't . Dallas Pd showed and it all blew over, but it was irritating.

    #2. The very 1st Domestic I ever responded to as a police officer was the one where i got a lamp thrown at me. The little town had 2 trailer parks, and in both of them we'd get repeat domestic calls. The 1st one I go on the Chief is already there beofre my FTO and I arrive (REAL small town, 8 cops total, I was the only "person of color" on the whole force ).

    The lady called us, but she "just wanted us to scare him a little" and when the Chief hooks him up for Family violence assault, she throws the lamp at him......as I was passing in front of her to take control of the prisoner (my FTO was watching her, but got distracted by the back door slamming, it was the ladies kids coming home from school).

    #3. Another memorable one was when this guy walk on to campus screaming with his face covered in red dye. Turns out he'd been sprayed but a S/O at the Greyhound station a couple blocks over from my college. Of course he lied and said some random dude did it, so we get the guy and walk him down to the PD (our office is in the basement student center) so he can wash his eyes out at our eye-wash station (and so I can make a call seeing if Dallas PD or anyone is looking for someone who just got sprayed ).

    While passing threw the Student Center with this guy who was not in handcuffs, this one ES (our code for "Eternal Student", 28 year old guy whose done wayyyy more than 2 years at our 2 year college lol) decides to stand up and shout "see, there they go harrassing another innocent black man".

    My partner and the Lt took the guy into the PD, but I couldn't resist. i went back out to the Stundet center and walked up to the ES, who suddenly wasn't quite so talkative now that i was standing in front of him. I let him and his homies know that we were helping the guy, he got sprayed by someone else and that it's a good idea to not make assumptions about things you don't know about. That got a chuckle from others in the student center, and the ES look like he wanted to crawl under a rock. All's well that ends well.

    People are prejudiced. They want to believe that someone in a uniform is a "fascist" or whatever, and anything they see they will interpret in a way that suits their prejudice. Just gotta learn to live with it.

        California media is pretty liberal. The scenes i've seen of police brutality seems kind of edited and incomplete, just showing some poor slob being crushed under the weight of the whole division after a 3 hour car chase down the 405.

        Not that I nessesarily disagree with liberal mindsets but when it skews people into thinking what the programming director wants them to think- I change the channel. Same with the conservatives.

          The media here is very slanted towards the left, which is why I rarely watch the local news. The main paper here is very anti-cop, which is why I cancled my subscribtion. Everyone is welcome to their thoughts and views, I just don't want to have them pushed on me.

          Stay safe everyone.

            I'm sure it's the case throughout the country! It is not just the west coast papers, the east coast fish wraps have their agenda too!

              Everyone in the media has an agenda.

              On one side, you have the far left fish wraps. On the other side, you have the far right neo-con cage liners.

              Murdoch has flat stated that he will use Fox News to push his agenda.

              Especially on the internet, where people can find extremely biased blogs and "news sites" that cater to their political leanings and report the "news" only based on what they want to hear.

              CrooksandLiars, a "news site," can spin anything into a vast Bush conspiracy, for example. Its a blog, not a news site, but to its supporters, its the ONLY TRUE NEWS OUT THERE.

              Its sorta like getting your news from Rush Limbaugh.

                the only reason I would pushe C&L is to somehow try to cancel out the current regime. And I MEAN regime.

                You know- taking baking soda, not because you like the taste but to get rid of bad indigestion, which sucks worse at the time.
