Warm and Bubbly

A class act.

When contacted, Josephs hung up on a Star reporter.
And professional too. Any guesses on what the mandatory minimum would be for bubble blowing?

Are rank and file officers even allowed to comment to reporters? They usually have designated media liaisons for that. Also, hanging up on a reporter proves nothing; the man may just like his privacy, and isn’t privacy supposed to be sacrosanct around here? Or are there special exceptions for statists and their thugs?tempers are little better.

I don't trust sound bites snapped by interested parties; they show you only a moment in time, and nothing of what happened before. For all we know they’d been baiting the officers all day, and many of those on this forum who are honest with themselves will realize that their own capacity for abuse is just as bad. And no, the standards are not lower for you. They are the same for everyone.

That said, he should—and probably will—receive a stern rebuke from his superior. Acting like an asshole plays no part in de-escalation, and doing it on camera brings the department no credit. There is no excuse for bad manners. Apparently he’s been caught in this type of semi-abusive behaviour before, so there may be a pattern here. In which case he should take a cue from his female colleague and chill out.

Well, I can state that my experience in being searched was far more rude than this experience. The police used non-stop profanity with me, called me ignorant, and said I didn't care about the safety of the city.

And we will see what becomes of the complaint I filed. I'm guessing nothing. But we will see.

Better to put the arselochs and the bad-arses on the police line and try to keep them under control than to put weaklings and effeminates out there.

Two-tone Courtney Weenie believes that she's allowed her saliva laden bubbles to be blown in the face of a cop.
She was arrested later for an unrelated incident?
So blowing bubbles was not enough for her to accomplish her day's goal?
Typical wanna be radical bimbette.

The female officer looks slightly embarrassed by her colleague. She should be.

Cytotoxic: Her colleague wasn't effeminate enough?

Posted by: Agha Ali Arkhan | 2010-07-18 11:19:04 AM

No he was just being a prick.

How long must this dead horse be beaten?

He did not want bubbles blown on him. That's not being a prick. That's being someone who doesn't want bubbles blown on him. The bubble-blower is a prickess.

Until the scribblers of the Western Standard are happy with the world.
