    What would happen if I did this to a cop?

    Say that I went up to a cop on all fours, and started barking like a dog, panting, and doing tricks for him.

    You know, just freak him out.

    Lol what would come of that?

    After all, no law against pretending to be a dog, right?

    Why does a traffic cop need a gun?

    There are no "extenuating circumstances."   A red light camera covers red lights.  A cop can take a speed reading, get a plate and send you a ticket in the mail.  No appeals.  You don't pay?  You don't appear?  Your house gets blown up with you in it.  Traffic cops shouldn't even have to interact with the public.  Just read the meter.

    Daunte Wright was wanted for armed robbery and assault. He had his $100k bail revoked because he was caught with a gun after posting bail ?

    Favourite answer:

    EVERY one of these "victims" always have a lengthy criminal background and are into illegal drugs and weapons.

    They always attack the arresting officers then are surprised when they are shot.

    NONE have ever been productive members of society or choir boys on their way home from church service

    Was what these cops did illegal? in texas!?

    My dad was driving without a license and has some bs warrants...but anyways.  The cops pulled him over for doing 1 mpg over the speed limit.  Thats the reason they gave for pulling him over.  So they arrested him...but thats not my question.  They did not give me any time to get over there before they towed his car.  I have a license, and im good.  Im 5 minutes away.  They towed the car within 5 minutes of arresting my dad.  How is that legal.  Meanwhile my mom was there trying to stop them.  she tried to stay in the car but they told her she had to get out or theyd arrest her too.  then the towed the car...withing 5 minutes..tell me thats not planned

    Can I call the police on my daughter's 3-year older boyfriend?

    He's 23, but my daughter is almost 20. 

    Here's the VERY weird part: When my daughter was a freshman, her boyfriend was a senior. He was born in 1998, but my daughter in '01. They bonded through a high school "mentor" program where seniors connect with freshmen and make them feel comfortable about high school since seniors obviously witnessed it all. 

    In sophomore, they still spoke over Snapchat, and when she was a junior @ 16 and he was 19, they started hanging out, they went to see movies, bowling, eat with their friends and I was fine with that but she told me her boyfriend wanted to wait until she was 18 to go out with her, she agreed. After she finished high school, I caught her kissing her boyfriend and I was disgusted, he was 21. How is this even allowed???

    Is this a good trick to get out of jury duty?

    On the jury duty form, the initial one that you fill out and mail back before they decide if you are to be selected or not, there are two segments.

    There is the segment you fill out.

    Then there is the segment that you leave blank, that is for "office use only."

    Well what if I just filled out both segments and mailed it back?

    Then when they see that, it will look like I am unable to follow simple instructions, and they probably don't want someone like that on the jury.

    They'll figure: "If he can't comprehend words written in black and white then how is he supposed to follow the trial and jury instructions?"

    And then I simply don't hear back from them.

    Could that work?

    When will people learn that when you are stopped by the police and you know you are wrong, why escalate a confrontation by resistance?

    Favourite answer:

    Common sense says if you are stopped, obey the cops. 

    There will be plenty of people filming if you need to file a complaint. But at least you will not be DEAD!!!!Are there bad cops? Absolutely, but there are far more bad criminalsThe Black community has been enflamed by a left wing media creating paranoia in that community. Black youth are taugh to hate white and cops.Even though these shooting are very rare, but Left wing media makes it look common. They beat on it long enough, that another one will come along.Do you see the Left Wing media showing the 4x more whites that have died at the hands of cops?Of course not. While people hate criminals, Black people make them heros or Rappers.Cause and effect.

    What do all these killings of Black men have in common? They did not comply with officers commands, they resisted or tried to evade the?

    police. Had they complied none of these "murders" would have happened. Don't blame it on a racist police department.

    Should there be a federal background check on all law enforcement officers starting now?

    Favourite answer:

    Law enforcement should undergo the same process I did when I started working for the DOD/NSA as a civilian with access to highly classified information...Federal background check by the FBI and CIA, as well as multiple polygraph examinations initially, and one every year there after.

    Why can cops get away with murder?

    Favourite answer:

    Because, unofficially, the law believes that African Americans are second class citizens and treats them as such. Look, a Black man will sometimes get double the prison sentence that a white man would get for the exact same crime. Same with Latinos. It is called institutionalized racisms. Sad but true.
