Good thing the guy didn't have to scratch his balls... he'd end up dead for resisting arrest.

From my perspective, it's extraordinarily difficult to imagine someone lying face down on the ground presenting a threat that armed and trained police officers can't control without stomping. It's really simple: if the suspect could've been controlled any other way then the force was excessive; if not, then those assholes shouldn't be carrying guns to begin with.

Also, to clear up a common misunderstanding the police aren't here to serve or protect, regardless of the propaganda on the squad cars. In the view of the Supreme Court, they're here to enforce the law... period.
Dec 14, 2010 AgelessStranger commented on City Should Prosecute "Mexican Piss" Cop.
Well, the verdict is in:

""Though the incident was marred by an unacceptable and unnecessary racist comment, our office concludes that neither officer’s conduct was criminal, and I decline to file misdemeanor charges," city attorney Peter S. Holmes said in a news release."

Serious question: is there anyone out there over the age of 8 that DIDN'T see this one coming?

I found it well written and oddly poetic, but I think it'll be awhile before "Assassin of Birds" is put on our state seal.
Dec 7, 2010 AgelessStranger commented on Is the SPD Out of Control?.
So... as others have asked has the SPD just gone out of control lately, or has this been going on for an extended time? Either way something needs to be done, and clearly the whole "policing themselves" idea isn't working out.

However the situation is dealt wit I personally think that cops (or any authority figure, in fact)should be held to a higher standard than the rest of us non-badged types. Lead by example, and all.

I'm glad this nonsense wasn't printed. Everyone knows that apartment bears aren't invisible... they're just very, very stealthy.
May 19, 2010 AgelessStranger commented on Fuck the South.
I thought it was funny, but what's even funnier is how many people got bent out of shape over it. Good thing we're not standing on a playground; there'd be pushing and bitch slappings galore.
May 19, 2010 AgelessStranger commented on Onward Christian Censors.
In my opinion the only real evidence of a benign god in this world is the separation of church and state. Ironic, isn't it?
May 19, 2010 AgelessStranger commented on Wait, Guns Do Kill People.
I think the important question we need to be asking is this: just what did that guy do to piss that rifle off so much? Was there... inappropriate touching, maybe?

@13- well said.

As for the article itself, I think the point is pretty simple: did they work? If so, they earned their money. Whether they're illegal immigrants or not is a whole different subject.
May 16, 2010 AgelessStranger commented on The Other Side of the Story.
Holy shit. I'm with the others that said I didn't think that racism was really an issue here in our part of the world. After reading the comments here it appears that assumption was wrong, though.

Personally, I agree with the article. Treating symptoms while ignoring the cause is usually a waste of time and money. Half-ass treating a symptom and calling it a triumph is even worse; it insults the intelligence of everyone reading it.
