Black Bankers Can Be Arrested If They Think They Own a BMW

    OK--this one just bugged my eyes out. It's a perfect example of what's wrong with law enforcement today.

    Picture this: You're sitting at a light in your BMW, but you don't have your hands on the wheel. So you get busted and hauled downtown. Hours later (after not being charged) you get released and told you can pick your car up the next day.

    Then, when you try to pick up your car, the handcuffs go back on and you get shipped off to a mental hospital where, for eight days, they shoot you up and try to cure you of the delusions that a) You're a banker; b) You own a BMW: and c) President Obama follows you on Twitter.

    Of course, that's just nuts if you're a black female.

    Except when it's not.

    Don't be too hasty my man. Although Sputnik News may appear be the Russian equivalent of The Onion, and editorially as objective as Pravda, it does contain some legit news, even if it would be of no real interest to anyone but Australians, and asylum seekers.

    Malcolm Turnbull Swears In As New Australian Prime Minister

    Malcolm Turnbull won a leadership spill against Tony Abbott in the Australian Federal Parliament, and was sworn in today as the Australian Prime Minister.

    Malcolm Turnbull says Australia owes Tony Abbott 'enormous debt of gratitude' -

    It must have been a slow news day at Sputnik, because the Kam Brock case is old news, and who really, outside of Australia, cares who the Australian Prime Minister is.

    There has to be more to this story, but if not I hope she sues the hell out of them.

    Weather or not the story is true, the site is very clearly anti cop. It's not about reporting truth with them, it's all about sticking it to the cops.
    With a bias that strong showing, I wouldn't trust any story without more info.

    It's funny--with the news these days you can't just automatically believe the stuff reported by the whack-o sites, but then again, you can't trust anything the MSM reports either.

    I guess the only way to hear the real news is to hang out at a general store and whittle a lot.

    Sure she wasn't arrested because she was a banker?

    Did you listen to the audio? That was clearly a hostage situation. The board was in mortal peril, and being dismembered while the officer tried to intervene.:rolleyes:

    Just as a bit of background on this. The Seattle PD currently is under the Dept of Justice monitoring due to this and other similar issues. Recently more than a few officers have been fired over excessive force, lying about certain interactions with people, harassment and so on. Recently a female officer was fired for her arrest of a black man using a golf club as a cane.......

    So yes, don't whittle or use a golf club while walking the streets of Seattle.....

    I guess the gentleman using a golf club as a walking stick should have been wearing plus-fours at the time. :rolleyes:

    Sure it wasn't Tiger Woods?

    Yup the banker story was reported on multiple sites and papers. It's true.

    The guy walking down the street with his hands in his pants and head phones on gets gunned down for no reason.

    Last day or two a four year old child was shot in the leg (blew her leg off) because cop was trigger happy and waving gun around and started shooting.

    Recent (reported in paper today that family is demanding video) Unarmed woman gets gunned down when the cops show up and she was chasing her husband around. Cops release TWELVE SECONDS of on body camera footage that tells nothing, out of the TWENTY EIGHT MINUTES of film.

    Watch the news. You don't have to be anti-cop (I'm not, but then I also have to deal with armed idiots that have badges too) to see the cops are generally idiots (the courts have ruled that cops can NOT be hire or CAN be fired for "being TOO INTELLIGENT"!) or if you prefer "uneducated" and know nothing of the law. Serious, go talk to any of them and see.

    I could list a few dozen cases I know of or that were reported in the local paper, such as Po-lice cheap climbs over SIX FOOT HIGH chain link fence, shoots family dog in front of children, claims he "didn't know" SIX FOOT HIGH chain link fence was "fence". It goes on and on. And these are the people who have tanks, APCs, M-16, attack helicopters (really), and are now fighting body cameras tooth and nail.

    You don't have to be "anti-" anything to see there is a problem here.
