Police Are Sensitive; Easily Upset by Words and Hand Gestures

FTP2What’s going on with police lately? They seem to be on emotional high alert and prone to lose their cool over spoken words and/or hand gestures. In the last ten days I’ve published three separate stories where police officers have arrested, harassed and peppered sprayed (links are to each story or see end of post) people who either gave them the middle finger or said a swear word. I thought that was going to be it for awhile but then Jeremiah Raber (of Breaking Amish, a show I have never seen) was arrested for disorderly conduct. What did he do that was disorderly? According to wpxi.news:

Jeremiah Raber, 35, was the passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over shortly after 2:30 a.m. in White Township, police said. After the traffic stop, Raber allegedly hung out of the passenger side window of the vehicle as it pulled away and yelled derogatory curse words at the troopers.

That’s right, he called the cop a swear word or maybe even, dare I say it, a “Pig.” We can officially up the count to 4 post about over sensitive police who can’t stand to have someone give them the middle finger or say something “derogatory” to them. Why are such stories grazing our pages so often these days? Is this just a few bad cops who let their emotions get the best of them? Or is there a bigger issue behind the increase of police butthurt?

The Problem Is NOT A Few Bad Cops

Before the CopSuckers jump all over me, I understand that we’re talking about four random cops out of hundreds of thousands, but the problem is not a ‘few bad cops.’ Yes, it’s possible that these four cops were having off days, for whatever reasons, and simply lost their cool. It happens to the best of us, and if that were the “official” statement from police the following day then I’d believe this. In fact, I want to believe this because if these cops aren’t butthurt than they’re simply too stupid to realize Americans have freedom of expression and speech. You know, those crucial aspects to the foundation of government a police officers whole job is based around (which is a total joke and means crap but they should believe that crap), those silly things. For fuck sake, little children are taught, “Sticks and stone may break my bones but names will never hurt me.” How does a grown human being, who carries a firearm and purports to protect people’s rights for a living, go from ensuring those rights to stomping the hell out of them claiming, “Today it’s not [a right]”?

Furthermore, and maybe more importantly, what didn’t happen is what proves this is more than a few bad cops. The fact that 3 of the 4 arrested went to jail for some amount of time means that they were transported to a restricted facility, booked and either bailed out or waited to see a judge. This means they interacted with more than one LEO (or jailer, correction officer) and that everyone they encountered continued the process, they did NOT release them or protect them in anyway way. If the system had any sort of checks or balances to it, the minute these people were brought to another police officer, or jailer, someone would have said to the arresting cop, “What are you doing? Didn’t your mother ever tell you about sticks and stones?” Yet not a single one of these people was freed and they ALL now face court dates, trials and the possibility of jail time. Meaning not only were their rights trampled, but they’ll now be inconvenienced by defending themselves from a “crime” that anyone without a badge merely walks away from.

ThereforeF-police graphic, spare me the comments CopSuckers, your few bad apples story is bullshit and I’m not buying any of it (I will side step and say that it’s the job, the institution (government), that makes you all bad apples. You need to stop working for the man and work for the people (but that’s another blog).

Cops Suck: Plain and Simple 

There isn’t a single person (other than maybe a cop themselves) who doesn’t feel some sort of fear or become nervous when a cop is in their rearview mirror. Why is that? Maybe it’s because everyone knows what a person wearing the badge and uniform is capable of. I’ve blogged about this before in a post called, “What Cops Say Without Saying Anything At All” stating:

Combining the recognition of a gang [cops] by symbols, colors and clothing, with that of the violence they use, creates the fear factor that people relate such associations to. This is why when people encounter a gang member – whether they are the most, or least, violent gang member – they know without any interaction that an encounter with such a person means other people dressed like them (or that person them self) are capable of using violence and are commonly carrying weapons. People know that engaging such people could lead to personal harm – even death.

Everyone knows this and most react to it instinctively, as if it were a natural reaction to check your speed, put your seatbelt on and pat yourself down the minute a cop pulls up behind you. This is not natural, this is not how people react to those who are there to help, protect and/or serve them. This is why cops suck, because since most of us can remember, whenever the cops show up someone gets a ticket, ends up in jail or even dead. Cops suck, you know it and I know it.

daily-sheeple-fingerPeople Had Enough

People are simply tired of the endless flow of laws, the double standards and the violence that police use on a daily basis. Folks are fed up with complying with warrantless checkpoints, violent raids and senseless killings. People are tired of being charged, via taxation, to further the police state that provides these (fake) “protectors” with the tools to make people even more scared and nervous around them. Then the irony that sets in when folks realize that those fancy toys, that they paid taxes for, end up being used on them too. Or when you realize that every act of police aggression you’ve ever faced in your life has been paid for, in part, by you.

This is why people are saying, “Fuck the police” and giving them the finger more. People are tired of your behavior, people want you to do what you say you’ll do and not what your bosses (the government) tell you to do. I know I am one of those bothered by your actions and you’re only creating more and more disgruntled people each day. Therefore, you can expect more middle finger and vulgar language.

Below is a video I made of a man carrying a “Fuck the Police” sign at the Brelo Protests in Cleveland this past weekend. He didn’t get arrested, but he probably would have, if it wasn’t for so many cameras around. He did take some heat throughout the day for the sign, as you’ll see in the video below.

    only pussys take the job.

  • RAD

    The police are a fundamentally religious institution. It is their delusional belief in their false religion(statism/government religion/state religion) which leads the individual members of the cop cult to perpetrate their psychotic acts of violence on a daily basis.

  • Sikko

    Love how you ignore this: “allegedly hung out of the passenger side window of the vehicle as it pulled away” in order to make your case that is was about “words” and cops “seeming” overly sensitive to them. So, when you rhetorically ask, “What did he do that was disorderly?” You have your answer, and it wasn’t the words, it was that he “allegedly hung out of the passenger side window of the vehicle as it pulled away” that would be the disorderly conduct.

    So disingenuous, Ademo.

  • t

    Ademo:
    Wow…even for you…this is a weak attempt.

  • Common Sense

    If a cop flipped Adam off he’d lose his shit.

  • Mike TheVet

    But he wouldn’t pull them over for that same reason, either.

    Double-edged sword, ignoramuses. Logic is a beautiful thing.

  • Mike TheVet

    There are still some dicks that do as well.

  • JC

    Another idiotic article by Ademo. Do you ever listen to what you say? Why flip off the police or call them names? I’ve seen some of your videos where you are swearing at people. You come off as an idiot. There is no excuse for that kind of behavior. Nothing you have done in life has worked out for you so stop doing stupid things. Tell you what, stop being a coward. Go downtown and flip off drivers and yell obscenities. Loser.

  • t

    It is. Sad you’ll never experience that joy.

  • JC is a fracking pussy

    Another idiotic comment by JC. Do you ever listen to what you say? You cum off as an idiot. There is no excuse for that kind of behavior.

    Its called free speech, idiot! This is nothing but a rant! So pull your head out of your daddies ass and understand why people do this you shit stain on the underwear of society.

  • I think you mean that Jc’s daddy needs to pull out of his ass.

  • Common Sense

    No, because it would mean that Adam finally has a W2.

  • Vescha Lahearse

    Please ignore JC. He gets off on inciting argument by disagreeing with everyone and spouting assinine crap. I’ll bet if we said 2+2 = 4 he would argue that it’s 4’s fault for being involved in the equation therefore 4 has no merit.If you stop arguing he’ll eventually get bored and move on to argue on a different forum about something else. I’m sure he jerks off to people getting irritated and angry.

  • valianthammer

    When I was a young teenager and still rode the bus to school, I made the mistake of yelling ‘cops suck’ out the bus window to an officer who was responding to a call (probably a domestic dispute, as he was parked in front of someone’s house, lights on, approaching the door with his hand on his firearm). I sure hope it wasn’t a matter of life or death, though, because he immediately abandoned his duties, hopped back in his cruiser and pulled our bus over; he then proceeded to threaten to arrest every child on the bus until they told him who did it. Once he found out it was me, he grabbed my arm, pulled me off the bus and berated me for a good 20 minutes on how fucking terrible it is to disrespect adults, and especially someone in a position of authority. Took my name and number, and later that night called my parents who proceeded to laugh at him and a
    ask if he was a fucking baby.

    And then you rode a unicorn to a land of make believe where you at candy all day and played in the sunshine will all your friends…

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    all of these pigs should have their heads stomped into a curb until they pop like a melon. the only good pig is a dead pig. their carcasses should be hung from overpasses US wide.

  • Tic Toc Motherfucker

    its funny you actually think people give a shit what you say. the only thing you’re good for or will be good for is to hear you scream while your skin is being pulled off you. I wonder if you’ve ever seen somebodies skin pulled off them using a rotating spike. the skin slowly wraps around it. as it is slowly turned, more and more skin winds around the spike. it’s a useful tool for pulling intestines slowly out of people is well. when you fucked with me, you fucked up.

  • Shawn

    Given the antics from cops over this issue, it is hardly different to believe. Remember the video of a cop threatening arrest over an insult to his battle buddy?

    Cops are all about their egos.

  • JC

    Another threat, more paperwork, and another e-mail. Not to mention, Another email to Disqus. I know Disqus has told you that you are about finished on Disqus. That is why you haven’t been login in. Coward.

  • JC

    Keep abusing those government benefits. You know the benefits you complain about when someone else more deserving gets them.

  • JC

    Why don’t you post your name and address first. Even though I know who you are, I want to see how much of a pussy you are and post a fake name and address.

  • Common Sense

    You seriously believe that comment? Come on Shawn, you are smarter than that.

  • SineNomine

    And assholes.

  • Shawn

    This specific comment? No way to know. What I do know is that is within the character of LE.
    True or not, countless others are clearly true. That pattern is what matters, not one event.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I don’t use Disqus because it pisses you off, that’s the only reason. Disqus never warned me and will not have warned me for freedom of speech you fucking retarded chimp.

  • Sikko

    America! Fuck yeah!

  • Lucias Fox

    Having seen just this happen? Yes, I believe it. I remember being 16, standing outside the restaurant I was working waiting for a ride home, and a cop harassing me about a nonexistant ‘curfew.’ He didn’t bug me much after my father showed up and asked what the fuck he was doing.

  • Mike TheVet

    lol okay now that’s actually funny.

  • Mike TheVet

    Thanks for your reply, t.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I wonder how many animals do you have that you would miss.

  • corkie

    What part of his comment was difficult to believe?

  • corkie

    You’re a drama queen if you think that’s disorderly.

  • corkie

    Constitutional rights are government benefits, Idiot.

    Do you have something against 1099 or K-1 income, Slave?

  • weThePolice

    They tell you when they hired you at your work?

  • weThePolice

    Assault me with dirty language or gestures, and i assault you period

  • Difdi

    And then you go to jail if you’re lucky or the morgue if you’re not. Words or gestures aren’t an assault, but violent response to them is.

  • Difdi

    Or if the violation of rights violates 18 USC 241, make a citizen’s arrest.

  • Difdi

    Why? Because we legally can and the only cops who react to it with violence are the ones we need to identify and get fired and/or convicted.

    No one ever needed a heavily protected right to say or do exactly what people like to hear. The First Amendment is the right to offend people.

    In this case it’s really not any different than a police undercover operation — you give a criminal a choice between lawful and unlawful behavior along with just enough rope to hang himself with, and if he chooses to commit a crime, that’s his choice. That the criminal has a badge just makes it more urgent to get him put away.

  • JC

    Why flip the police off? Just because copblockers are bottom dwellers doesn’t mean you can just go around flipping people off. Why don’t you go to a biker bar or just down town and start flipping people off. I’m sure if a cop flipped you off you would piss your pants and throw a fit. Don’t be a hypocrite.

  • Common Sense

    All of it.

  • Common Sense

    When was it? What city or town was it in? What’s the name of the restaurant? Who was the officer? What department was it?

  • Common Sense

    And countless others are clearly either untrue or an exaggeration.

    Jesus……that’s rather scarring…

    Something tells me that Adam has never paid taxes.

    You didn’t answer the question. Do you have something against 1099 or K-1 income?

  • corkie

    Really, it’s difficult to believe that a kid would stick his head out a bus window and yell something at a cop? Dude, that cop world that you live in certainly is full of delusions.

  • corkie

  • RandyBoBandy

    I make more money than you. As such, I probably pay more taxes than you. I guess we have different definitions of “bottom dweller”?

  • RandyBoBandy

    Yeah then he’d pull his mace out and spray them, then have taxpayers pay the lawsuit when he loses. Does that sound about right

  • Difdi

    So expecting people who are paid tens of thousands of dollars a year to enforce the law to obey the law makes someone a bottom dweller to you? By that standard, organized crime must be your heroes.

    The police don’t have some magical stature that makes them inherently worthy of respect any more than roofers or garbage collectors do. They earn respect or disrespect just like anyone else does, and do so as a collective group as well as individuals, just like everybody else does.

    If someone flips me off, I flip them off right back. That’s what the law and society as a whole expect — proportionate self defense. Gestures to gestures, words to words, actions to actions Responding to gestures or words with physical violence is a criminal act.

    The fact that police often do respond to words or gestures with physical violence where the law they are paid and sworn to enforce says they should, at most, respond at the same level of force just means they aren’t worthy of respect. Well, not more than you’d show to a rattlesnake or rabid dog — dangerous enough to be wary, but nothing to admire in any way.

  • weThePolice

    You obviously don’t know the difference between assault and battery, but I can certainly teach you

    Don’t assume the laws where you live are universal, it just makes you look stupid(er).

    1989, a county seat in NW Ohio, Sterling’s, we called him RoboCop or Short-Shank. You don’t need all the details. It was a personal experience, which does not quantify as ‘evidence’ to anyone but me.
