Wait just a minute now......chapter 2 paragraph 3 of the State Drivers Manual specifically states that if paper results in scissors on the first attempt, a second round shall be initiated at the discretion of said officer. You obviously failed to comply ladyinred....so your license to engage in rock, paper, scissors is administratively revoked! ;)

saiding Scissors to a police officer is considered a threat and a clear and present danger and immediately places the officer in fear of their life ....you're lucky you didn't get blown away

LOL NOW I know! No wonder the officer gives me the "stink eye" when I pass him, now.


...........lucky you didn't get blown away


How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

LOL Totally forgot ............lizard, spock. ? Which trumps, which?

I think the APPEARANCE of class distinction signals is probably more important in all this.

Prejudice is simpler in a lot of ways than we've been accidentally encouraged to recognize, especially by the people most earnestly working to oppose it.

A pure racist will see only your skin coloration when dealing with you. But those kinds of people are actually relatively rare. Much more common, is that people (and police are people, believe it or not) have a complicated array of a lot of little prejudices and assumptions that they build up over their lives, all of which play a part in the snap judgments they make about how to deal with you.

In times, places, and in cultures where it became popular to dress in a manner that triggered authorities to think "thug," or "offender" when they see you, violence from police has always been high. Combine a rebellious, anti-authority culture with a generally low income environment, and violence always tends to increase. More of it happens in ghettos and trailer parks, because of all those factors colliding, rather than because people born in those environments are naturally nasty people.

Something to look for (not saying it's perfectly true)...

When a seeming exception to the usual abuse happens, such as a wealthy person getting mistreated, notice what alternate "prejudice triggers" were set off. Were they in an environment suggesting that they were just a well-dressed drug dealer? Were they being royal jerks to the authorities BECAUSE they were rich egotists? Were they dealing with an officer who had themselves always thought that anyone with lots of money deserves to be taken down a notch?

So true, Igor. My own brother was a cop for 35 years and I know his prejudices first hand. I often wondered how they may manifest themselves out on the street.

I see what you are doing here, Rob. And I am flattered, truly.
But I am sorry. I really don't think we would be a good match.

You need a woman without cats! Good luck in your search! :D

jeez crookcatcher, why couldn't my post about the police "blowing away the driver" also be regarded as adding to the levity of the moment,....so now why don't you add to the levity of the moment by claiming that incidents like that never take place and give the forum a good laugh

I think first one has to wonder why a person would want to become a police officer, you look in the classified ads and it's a job opening for someone that don't mind shooting, beating, tasing and pepper spraying citizens, to even consider taking such a job one's sociopathic tendencies have to be far above the norm

Rude? Now that's classic. Let's play I'm a victim?

I'll leave the forum's laughter to your posts, seems appropriate. :)

That whole "play victim" response is getting as old,meaningless, and ineffective as "sexist," "tin foil hat," "teapuppet," "racist" and "homophobe."

Let's try some new verbiage. How about it, everyone?

^ I pick "specists". They're everywhere. They will only date humans. And some of them become cops. The harassment a dog is subjected to every time it gets behind the wheel of a car is very telling.

"baconhaters."

That's a compelling one.

Not new, but it should have a firm place in the lexicon of hate.

jeez crookcatcher...saying "How Rude" is just another way of adding Levity ...for someone such as yourself that's probably carrying a loaded weapon in public without a chaperone ..you need to learn to chill out ...you're "PTSD-ing" too much and only proving the point of the thread

yes, I think that would be best

exactly.

IF, you wanted to help, the last thing you need is a bunch of bureaucracy, weapons, spaztik co-workers, wierd hours etc. and a bunch of orders that put you in a situation where you can't THINK in the moment for what is RIGHT (and have to answer to someone risking your job and rep ).

Those that choose power to "help" choose not to think for themselves or work with what may be an answer .

A real cop would make sure he doesn't have the job of policing.
