Screw you, @1. Can't a faggot lurk in peace, however enormously flattered by the attention he may be?

I'm reminded of Bertie Wooster spending time in the dock for failing to get away after drunkenly trying to snatch away a policeman's helmet on Boat Race Night.

He was hauled before the magistrate, Sir Watkyn Bassett (yes, he of the silver cow-creamer), who fined him five pounds, and an entire comic novel ensued.

I wish this young asshole a happy ending as well.

Good night, what an asshole. Notice how the jumper focused his camera first on the cop's sidearm before panning back? One thing we demand of cops--that ALL OF US demand of cops--is that they not get their guns swiped. Anybody who tries to make a speedy stealth-n-startle approach near enough to grab at a cop's gun is going to get dealt with.

Trying to scare cops has nothing to do with fighting police brutality - all it does is COPY police brutality.

Oh please, Ms. Martinez. If the late, great Bagley Wright (no relation whatever to the Wrights who currently own the Needle) could see the bullshit PR campaign being used to fool the simple minded into writing nonsense like this,THAT's what would bother him.

In light of this I bet McGinn's cop-union buds are back yelling at him to take another crack at shutting Holmes up like he tried to a couple weeks ago. I'm sure the mayor wants to help SPOG out, except the judge totally dismissed the grounds on which he tried to silence Holmes last time:
The judge also dissuaded the city of a notion, first put forth by McGinn during a Feb. 27 news briefing, that the city’s agreement with the DOJ — signed in July — settled the litigation between them.

McGinn’s legal counsel, Carl Marquardt, repeated the assertion in a March 5 letter to Holmes, saying “implementation of the Settlement Agreement is not ‘litigation.’ ”

He said the agreement makes clear that it is an accord between the city and DOJ to avoid litigation. Marquardt asserted that implementation “falls squarely” within the mayor’s authority.

That view is “simply wrong,” Robart said.
But Mike's pretty crafty, and his lawyer seems willing to say any old thing, so I'm sure it ain't over yet.

I think if I had a name as good as "Estlin" I'd be the sort of person who could wear a hat without looking silly.
