CopBlocking On My Terms….

Well, it’s been almost a year since I’ve made a blog post here at CopBlock.org, but before I explain where I’ve been, why I haven’t posted so much and so forth, let me rewind a little bit for some of the new readers.

I’m Ademo – the Founder (along with Pete Eyre)  of CopBlock.org – and just over a year ago I was in jail for “wiretapping” public officials, as well as using children’s chalk on a police station. It was the longest stretch of time I’ve done and the last time, or so I hope, I ever walk myself into a cage again. Yep, my time in jail didn’t do me any favors, as is the case for anyone who has been behind bars. After being released, I took some time off and did some serious soul searching. During that time, I attempted to launch “CopBlock.org Protection,” which I believe is the first step to affecting change within the policing industry today. I believe that nothing will change with police (or the service of protection) until someone offers the solution to the state funded and operated protection system we know as policing today. As much as I wanted to be the guy to take CopBlock.org to that next level, I felt that starting such a project would only enlarge the target on my back, so I ended my involvement with CopBlock.org Protection.

Some folks would say I’ve left CopBlock.org, that I’m damaged goods from being arrested so many times, having spent time in jail and so on. Honestly, some of that might be true, but only to the point that I’ve learned from my interactions. I most certainly don’t like being kidnapped and caged, who does? From 2011 – 2012 I was arrested over a dozen times, did time in over 6 different lock ups and caught 3 felonies. I’m tired, but not of what you think.

What I’m tired of is their game. I’m tired of going out with the good intention of educating others, while holding (all) folks accountable, and ending up in a cage for doing nothing. I’m tired of playing with the police on their terms and in their playground (court). They make the rules, they run the show and no matter how many times you can point out the hypocrisy of their jobs, it’s YOU (or me) that end up paying the price. Even when you ‘beat’ them, like Pete and I did in Mass, you still lose. You lose time, energy and wealth (resources).

Which brings me to my post here today, CopBlocking on my own terms.

I know those of us who go above and beyond our ‘call’  by taking the message of CopBlock.org to the streets, meaning those who’ve dedicated their lives to being an ambassador of a cause, are doing so at a great expense. Whether that be financially, personally or in hours of sleep lost – many put their lives, literally, on the line to make the point that “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights.” These days I’m not so bold, brave or ambitious in this area. Sure, I tell everyone I can about CopBlock.org, I still assist folks with their CopBlock.org related projects and do interviews from time to time, but CopBlock.org is not my life. My life is just that, mine, and I won’t let a single jack booth thug have any effect on it.

I may not blog 7 days a week like I did for the first year plus of CopBlock.org’s existence. I may not go out on active CopBlock outings, or join the most recent tour (though the thought did crossed my mind). Nevertheless I’m still a CopBlocker. I’m just playing a different game these days. I only film police when I stumble across them, or if they’re directly in my neighborhood – like outside my house. I refuse to play by their rules and I’m of the mindset that when I do (film police), it’s on my own terms. If the police arrest or harass me, we’re not going to settle it in their playground anymore. They’re going to have to come play in mine.

Here are some of the videos I’ve posted to my personal YouTube (since it’s connected to my phone) since my time off from CopBlock.org. I hope you enjoy them and remember, “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights.”

  • steve

    These are good copblocks no bullshit. how about that one with the retarded canadian.

  • JGriffin

    Oh boo-hoo, you whinny little pissant. I’ve been arrested for shit that I shouldn’t have. If you shouldn’t have been arrested then why were you found guilty? Just because the jury wasn’t filled with anarchists and the citizens feel you’re just a nuisance, go figure. You and those like you are like fleas on a dog that just need a little flea collar(aka hand-cuffs) and you’ll be just fine. Oh and I’m sure you and the other cop blockers will make nice girlfriends while in jail.

  • dan

    In the first video Adam says to the parked cop, “ but I pay for your salary” (1:18) , As I figure, from your statement in your article “and just over a year ago I was in jail” I have just one question for you Adam,,,, How in the hell did you pay your taxes while you were in Jail for a year?

    “I’m just playing a different game these days.” Good, you’ve learned your lesson !

  • John Q Public

    Dan, he probably still doesn’t have a job because no one would hire someone like him and his criminal record. He’s just an ass who thinks he’s better than everyone. He’s not though.

  • Common Sense

    Sounds like the “state” decided the terms…

  • Pete Eyre

    Admeo, whether your actions are done under the copblock.org banner or not, the fact is that you’ve chosen not to obey and exist, but to think and live. That alone is powerful. Much love!

  • John Q Public

    Hey Pete! Pay your ticket yet?

  • EvilRadicalDude

    Did copblock put any money on his books while “caged”? Probably not, now he is butt hurt over it.

  • obama

    Ademo is a true hero and a good role model.

  • EvilRadicalDude

    Obviously This turd ^

    Has a distorted view of a hero and a role model. I wouldn’t let that guy scrub my trash cans.

  • obama

    Don’t call me names. I’m sure you are an aggressive lover of violence, it is obvious from how you are using name-calling. Hopefully more young people can learn from Ademo’s example rather than growing up to be brainwashed authoritarian cultists.

  • EvilRadicalDude

    Turd,

    You do realize you’re calling a drug dealer a role model don’t you? If that’s how you role good for you. Not my cup of tea.

  • Ademo Freeman

    CopBlock Trolls, yes you EvilRadicalDude, CommonSence, JQPublic and JmGriffin.

    You know I’ve backed your lame ass’s right to comment here for years. Many have wanted you banned and maybe I should have went that route, maybe I’ll bring the issue back up, IDK. Nevertheless you dominate the comments section here at CopBlock so I thought I’d jump in here too.

    You think it’s funny to call people names? How fucking old are you? And one of you is a cop, or a wanna be at the least.

    How about this, how about one of you lame fucks come talk this shit to my face. How about you come end my mother fucking life Griffin – like you have for so many others, as a cop. How about you come film me everyday, tell me how much of a druggie I am, threaten me and call me a loser to my face.

    Other than the murder, control freak, Griffin – none of you would have the fucking balls to do a mother fucking thing other than be a keyboard warrior.

    So put the fucking computer to sleep and come see me, otherwise, fuck off. You’re the biggest pieces of shits I’ve ever met and I hope you all die in a drone attack from your beloved government. I live in Laconia New Hampshire – small town and I’m not hard to find, so I’ll be waiting.

  • Ademo Freeman

    LOL, Griffin was a Ranger, he probably thinks that makes him a tough guy. LOL… rangers are pussies.

    Easy to kill people when you have superior fire power over them and the worlds largest military. Have you tired to kill anyone outside the Military Griffin? Or are you one of those rangers that’s all made that the drones and air strikes took all ‘your’ kills?

    Love the family guy gun pic too… really shows how much of a violent nut you’ve become since you’ve had Uncle Sam’s cock in your mouth.

  • JGriffin

    I love how I struck a nerve on you Ademo. It really shows your true colors. Oh by the way, yeah we might have superior fire power, and superior training, but when it comes down to doing battle it’s up close. But seeing as you have never been in the military or done anything useful in your life, you would never know what that feels like. At least I and many others are willing to put our lives on the line for strangers and we don’t whine when we get butt hurt like you. I’m sure you made someone a nice girlfriend while you were in prison. Oh, and just typical about talking about banning people when you’re so big on freedom of speech and the constitution. I would love to meet you face to face and you might just see how much of a pussy Rangers are. Problem is I have taken an oath to protect those that can’t protect themselves such as yourself.

  • Ademo Freeman

    LOL, JGriffin talks about his oath while he raids people’s homes for putting substances they want in their bodies, as if you own them and have the right to tell them what to do.

    Here’s a newsflash for you too, I (and many others) don’t want you to ‘protect’ me, especially in the manner you go about it.

    Struck a nerve? Hardly, I just figured if you can run your mouth so can I. And you must have missed the part where I said you haven’t been banned.. so my actions show I support freedom of speech. Your actions, as a pig, show you don’t.

    Your job, oath and life are all a joke. The government didn’t shut down last time, but they will… the government, your employer is broke. Yet, you keep working for them… that shows your intelligence. In ten years you’re going to be broke, with no job, no pension and 300 million people will be pissed off that you’ve blindly followed the man for years.

    How are you going to feel when thousands of people come to kill you? How will you feel about your life then? I can’t think of anyone that’s going to be mad at me when the government ends…

    How many people’s lives have you ruined by putting them in jail? What do you think they’ll do when your government fails to protect you?

    Oh and you’re putting your life on the line for me? I think you mean you’re putting your life on the line for the government. You’ve traded your freedom of thought for a paycheck… again, brilliant.

  • Ademo Freeman

    Truth hurts doesn’t it Griffin..

    You know the government is in debt. You know they won’t be able to pay you FOREVER. Maybe the rest of your life, depending on your age, but not your kids, or their kids.

    I guess you don’t mind leaving the Griffin name with black paint on it.

  • Common Sense

    “..Your rage has unbalanced you…”

    Adam, poor Adam. Think of it this way. You decided to go out of you way to engage the police time and time again for really no purpose other than spite.

    And here, on “your” website, the a few cops (what? 4) have decided to voice an opinion on the (mostly) garage that’s presented. And because you don’t like it, you want to take your football and go home.

    I’m sorry you have an apocalyptic view of society. Sorry, it will continue whether you are involved in it or not. There will be no revolt, no rebellion. If you want to “drop out” of society, deal in silver, barter, avoid the IRS and smoke a bowl, no one really cares. Just get on disability for “anxiety” and you can get a medical card. Its your own paranoia that fuels both your distrust of authority and sense of hopelessness.

    Like most Copblockers, want to argue morality or ideals, rather that the law. Law are made my men and by votes. In a courtroom, its not what you think, its what you can prove not assert. Its not how you view a topic or incident, its how well an attorney can argue it for either the defense or the state. Most Copblockers, really need to take a civics course and maybe a law class. I tell people I can play almost any game in the world, so long as I know the rules. Sadly, you have not learned the rules yet.

    Just like in Congress, you don’t have the votes for your bill. You couldn’t stop the Bearcat, you can’t legalize weed for Keene. Perhaps in time “your side” will have the leverage and you can stop fearing that the police will cave in your door as you separate males and females.

    But then again, dopers are their own worst enemies. Look at Denver. They actually get the bill though and its signed. But it doesn’t appear the legalization has reduced anything. If you notice, even drug violation are up, not down. I wonder what will happen with the election cycle starts again. Time will tell.

    Sorry sport, its just not your time.

  • Common Sense

    The US Government has been “in debt” since 1954. The “Debt Ceiling” has been raised over 90 times but both the Dems/GOP. The “National Debt” is a topic so complex that most don’t even understand it.

    Just remember, when this nation was founded, it was millions (in 1700 dollars) in debt.

    The US being in debt is nothing new.

  • obama

    Ademo is a hero and a role model for the youth. People are waking up from the brain washing.

  • EvilRadicalDude

    Spoken like a true role model. Ademo your not worth the “coin” to fly up there and kick your ass. Not to mention the threat of contracting Hep C from coming into contact with your blood.

    You don’t like cops. Great. I don’t like drug dealers.

  • t

    Ademo: I would have respected you more if you would have just come up with “Dope Lover.com”. I think that would at least be honest. The proclaimed idea of “film the police” is a good one. But that so quickly morphed into acting stupid and being aggressive. True accountability fell to the side…..confrontation was the only goal. You guys should have figured it out by now….not even those in Keene want you there. You don’t have wide spread support from your community. Hey back the police.

    Guy, I’ll wish you good luck in life. I hope you figure things out before you hurt someone or get hurt.

  • JGriffin

    LOL, JGriffin talks about his oath while he raids people’s homes for putting substances they want in their bodies, as if you own them and have the right to tell them what to do.

    I don’t tell them what to do, I enforce the laws made by the elected officials.

    Here’s a newsflash for you too, I (and many others) don’t want you to ‘protect’ me, especially in the manner you go about it.

    Hate to tell ya, but you are in the minority. Majority of people want the police and armed services and need them. See if it wasn’t for people like me, you would get the shit kicked out of you day in and day out. So you need me. If you think you can defend yourself, then you better get back in the gym as you don’t look like you could do much in the way of defending yourself.

    Struck a nerve? Hardly, I just figured if you can run your mouth so can I. And you must have missed the part where I said you haven’t been banned.. so my actions show I support freedom of speech. Your actions, as a pig, show you don’t.

    I’m all for free speech and protesting as long as it is done civil and peacefully. You want to ban people like me, but it would show how hypocritical you are if you did.

    Your job, oath and life are all a joke. The government didn’t shut down last time, but they will… the government, your employer is broke. Yet, you keep working for them… that shows your intelligence. In ten years you’re going to be broke, with no job, no pension and 300 million people will be pissed off that you’ve blindly followed the man for years.

    As stated the government has been broke for decades. They haven’t passed a budget in 3 years, but see I will continue to be paid and be able to provide a good life for my family. I will have a job in 10 years, and when I retire I will have a good pension and hate to tell you, there will not be 300 million people pissed at me. In fact, there won’t be anymore people pissed at me than there are now. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    How are you going to feel when thousands of people come to kill you? How will you feel about your life then? I can’t think of anyone that’s going to be mad at me when the government ends…

    How will I feel? I think I’ll feel recoil if thousands of people try to kill me, but I don’t think I will ever have to fear that in my life time. But if you want to be one of the people that try, I’m all for it. No one will be mad at you since you are nothing but a leech on society. Leeches will just get squished.

    How many people’s lives have you ruined by putting them in jail? What do you think they’ll do when your government fails to protect you?

    I haven’t ruined anyone lives, they have ruined their own lives. I don’t need the government to protect me, I’ve been doing fine on my own. The government has protected you and those like you. See the badge and my oath limit what I can and can not do. If there was no law and no order in society, then I could do what I wanted and kick ass, but I’m limited in what I’m allowed to do. So you can be thankful that I do take my oath seriously.

    Oh and you’re putting your life on the line for me? I think you mean you’re putting your life on the line for the government. You’ve traded your freedom of thought for a paycheck… again, brilliant.

    No, I have free thought and am able to disobey orders if they are illegal, unethical or immoral, and I have refused some orders. Oh, and I love that paycheck I do get.

  • obama

    Ademo is a victim of the drug war. He has worked hard to make society a better place so others don’t have to be victims of the police. Ademo should ban people in my opinion.

  • steve

    Now l can’t believe the trolling, this is what it brings ” RAGE” and that’s what a troll loves.

  • John Q Public

    Ah, Mueller, what a poor pathetic man you are. Its bad that there are so few of your followers on this site anymore. You are just delusional. You don’t like the crap on this site disputed even though a majority of it is straight bs. You’re a real tough guy. Typical bully type, making threats that you can’t back up. I bet if someone did show up and kick your ass, you’d be calling the “pigs” you hate so much pretty damned quick and filing a civil suit at the same time. You’re also the biggest hypocrite of all. You get upset about your perception of people acting childish, but act like a child throwing a tantrum yourself. But its ok. We see how well things have worked out for you. You’re probably living off of Kate’s dime and the idiots who like obama who “donate” to your worthless cause anyways. And we’re still waiting for the revolution you think will come. You know why we dominate the comments on here? Because most of your “followers” see what garbage you put on here and are put off by it. You started out legit maybe, but when you let guys like Davy V and CENTURION be in your group, your credibility is shot to hell. So, enjoy your pathetic existence. We’ll just keep on being the fly in your ointment until you do ban us. Then this site would just go out of existence. Cheers!

  • obama

    The authoritarian cop apologists are coming on this site almost every day trying to discredit copblock with their delusional ramblings. But copblock continues to shine the righteous light of truth! Ideas are bulletproof!

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    The mods, administrators and owners of this site didn’t need any help discrediting it. They have ruined it on their own.

  • obama

    Ademo is a righteous man.

  • Alvin

    I first posted on Copblock about 3 years ago. I don’t post a lot, only when something gets me riled up. Reading the “conversations” here after a bit of an absence has me somewhat ruffled.

    I see that the usual “backers” of the union-led police force is still here, practicing the same tired and disrespectful routine. They will never change. They are too engrained in their thinking (which is us against them)to ever see things from a different point of view.

    In past posts, I’ve attempted to put forth a different view from that of the unionists or the “I don’t like the law so I’m going to break it anyways” crowd. I’ve tried to get both of you to see that the majority of Americans are caught in the middle of your own crusades to push the other off of their pedestals.

    I too have had my run-ins with the law. Many in our country have. It forced me to evaluate and contemplate as it seems to have caused Ademo to do. I’m glad to hear him admitting that. It is a good first step towards his maturation.

    Yet, here are the unionists throwing their virtual tomatoes and lighting their digital crosses on the lawn of us who simply want to have a forum to respectfully express our points of view. They feel that they can practice here what they practice in real life hiding behind a badge, a gun, and their connection to the justice system.

    How may times has the police been shown on video breaking the very laws they are sworn (sworn, look that word up and contemplate upon it). Yet, they will contort their argument to no small degree to defend a fellow badge-wearer’s illegal actions.

    There is a word for that. Arrogance. The police and everyone connected with the Justice system suffer from that same ailment. There is, in my experience, absolutely no way to get an arrogant person to admit their shortcomings, and they will stop at nothing to prove themselves right, even to the extent of becoming nakedly obvious in their dishonesty.

    Our country is falling apart. There are many reasons for this, some our fault, some their fault, some by no one’s fault but the times we live in. You would think that we could overlook the petty and unimportant and work amongst ourselves to attempt to rectify our shortcomings and circumstances. Alas, we will not. The arrogant on the Right, and the vengeful on the Left prevent us from doing this, while those of us in the middle have become victims to both of you warring with each other.

    To that point, there is a great many of us in the middle that have abandoned the two of you and are making preparations for the destruction that we see coming as a result of your inability to compromise. Those of us that are prepared for the coming hard times will be less inclined to help either of you out and will probably hold both of you in contempt for your intransigence. Think that one over.

    Further, quite a few of us have armed and hold quite a grudge for those of you who are tasked with our “service and protection”. You unionists have brought this attitude from us upon yourselves. When the SHTF, do you think that you will be the only ones with firearms? Do you think that only you and your union brethren will have access to those technological toys you so arrogantly use? Where did all of those expensive implements come from? I’ll tell you, from the very public that you harbor contempt for now, and will cower in fear and beg mercy from in the future.

    Yeah, this is a thinly veiled threat. But, a well thought out one. From the posts on this blog site, neither of you groups have done much thinking about anything but yourselves.

  • EvilRadicalDude

    Alvin,

    Will you be fighting under the command of George Washington?

  • Common Sense

    When will the revolt begin? I want to set my DVR for it.

    I hope it doesn’t interfere with the Walking Dead, either that or my catching up on Breaking Bad. And Sundays are out of course, and to think of it, so are Wednesday and Thursdays nights since that when the Wings usually play when they don’t play over the weekend..

    …how about next Monday? Before football.

  • JGriffin

    The Revolution is on NBC at 8pm EST/7pm CST. Alvin, you talk about rational arguments/postings. Obviously, you have been gone for quite a while since you need to read the comments posted by cop block supporters calling for the murder of police officers. Oh and those videos that you talk about aren’t a numerous as you think. If you look at it this way, there are 900,000+ cops in the US alone and in any given day they answer 100,000’s of calls, and in all of that there are what 2-3 videos that might come out of that and out of those maybe…..just maybe 1 video might have some merit of overreacting. So go ahead and try to use your so-called reasonableness (at least that’s what you think you’re being) and just get with your other preppers.

  • Alvin

    The spirit of George Washington, sure.

  • Alvin

    Notice how the badge apologists are attacking me by calling me names and impugning my position. Further augmenting my claim that they don’t think an issue through. I make a cogent argument, and automatically, like Pavlov’s dog, I am making claims of murder. These idiots are stymied because I don’t support the “legalize weed” issue. I am an everyday American. Notice how my lack of badge worship threatens them. /Their whole world view is changing before their eyes, and they don’t have a clue how to deal with it. Like the dope heads, their whole identity is wrapped up in what they do rather than who they are. Think ’bout it folks.

  • Alvin

    J Griffin. What is the “acceptable” number for Police abusing their position? At what level is it alright for the Police forces to disregard the Constitution? We obviously have very divergent positions about this issue. I agree with T. Jefferson when he said “It is better to allow 100 criminals to go free than to imprison 1 innocent person”. Obviously, from your post that number is significantly higher. Are you alright with 2….5….10? I submit that it is not my viewpoint that is invalid, rather it is your world view that is skewed. Perhaps it is you that should look at the FBI statistics a little closer. Perhaps it is you that should take note of the innocents that are being released from the prisons and jails on a weekly basis. Seriously, you that hold the hero-worship of the police are going to have to back off of your world view just a bit.

  • Alvin

    What’s the matter with you badge-sniffers? Did I hit it a little too close to home? Where’s all of the name-calling and foul language derision from you folks at? What? You can’t argue a salient point with someone who agrees with a lot of what you do? Since I don’t have a pro-weed stance, does it make it hard for you to attack my character? Pathetic actually, that you are shut up so easily. As I said a few hours ago, you are so wrapped up into what you do or what you stand for that you don’t know who you are anymore. Losers all of you. Both the weed-worshipers and the baton-sitters. Both of you exhibit symptoms of anal asphyxiation.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Some of us actually contribute something to society by, you know… WORKING. Or in my case, I was sitting under a tree waiting for a nice, juicy gobbler to saunter by so I could blow it away.

  • Alvin

    Nice playground taunt. Perhaps you could contribute something to this site other than sarcasm and ridicule? Where is your great words of wisdom you were spouting yesterday? Come on, let’s hear your response to some actual debate. We for the most part are tired of your childish taunts.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Nothing to debate on this particular topic anymore. Violent groups such as Cop Watch will fall under their own weight. And groups such as Cop Block who sympathize and support violent groups (like Cop Watch) and violent individuals such as Mark Neiweemn has already been reduced to a parody of itself.

  • obama

    Calling Cop Watch a “violent group”? That is a libelous statement. What a lie. Name one single violent thing cop watch has ever done. You can’t because your statement is a lie. The whole purpose of cop watch is to protect society from the violent police gangs. And they do it non-violently, always.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Cop Watch is violent because they’re willing to pay their uneducated masses to incite a violent reaction by police, record it, and attempt to generate revenue from the lawsuits that follow. It’s all over the news.

  • Ariel

    31B,

    “Cop Watch is violent because…”. All you did is impute to them what they impute of you. And the “they do it for the money” is just cheap.

  • ThirtyOneBravo
  • obama

    So, now if a cop does something violent, it’s Cop Watch’s fault? That’s absurd. Cops are responsible for their own violent crimes. You know, the hardest part of their plan will be the logistics and the lawsuit. Finding cops to commit crimes will be the easy part, because most typical cops are so conditioned by the antisocial cop culture that they are PREDISPOSED to committing those crimes as it is. Which is exactly why these reverse-stings are necessary. I think that is why is bugs you so much, you know most typical cops would probably fall right into their trap. Most cops are probably not as good at it or as smart as you are. You could probably see some of your own cop buddies getting jammed up in something like this. I think that is what bothers you about it.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Thankfully, those that I supervise and those with whom I associate are brighter than to get wrapped up in this. But I will personally hold Cop Watch accountable if any of their few manipulates the situation, a civilian or an officer into this situation.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have turkeys to shoot.

  • Ariel

    31B,

    Well, generally, I would and thank you for the complement. I do research what I know just to reinforce. You know, like “light/sound devices” aren’t stun grenades. Does your flashlight tune into Radio Paradise BTW? Good station.

    So, an incident in St. Louis of one Cop Watch group leads you to believe all Cop Watch groups do the same thing? Didn’t I point out the problem with that earlier? Was I too lacking in verbosity?

    To pay a complement back, you’re better than this argument you make.

  • Ariel

    31B.

    That is what I expect of cops, to not be so easily manipulated. As for turkeys, they are endangered in some areas. Do you have a permit?

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    no permit. i shoot them from my lifted pick-up as i hold my beer in one hand, my shot gun in the other and drive with my knees while i’m careening down the highway at 90 mph. behind a church school bus filled with toddlers. im a cop. nobody will arrest me… (rolls eyes)

    of course im licensed and turkeys here aren’t endangered they’re seasonally hunted along with deer, bear, wolf, elk… you name it i hunt it.

    as for the single incidence in stl, there were many others that were reported over the past few days and one here locally but nearly all references to the ad have been taken down. by whom? i don’t know.

    obama,

    “So, now if a cop does something violent, it’s Cop Watch’s fault? That’s absurd. Cops are responsible for their own violent crimes. ” OF course, and 31B alluded to it with “Thankfully, those that I supervise and those with whom I associate are brighter than to get wrapped up in this.” Implying plainly that those cops that do are stupid while still maintaining that it’s still someone else’s fault if they do with this ” But I will personally hold Cop Watch accountable if any of their few manipulates the situation, a civilian or an officer into this situation.” It’s the breaking of a kindergarten rule that just because someone pisses you off doesn’t mean you get to hurt them, though the language may have been different.

    Sorry, 31B, but that was easy to dissect.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    never chose to allude to placing fault on anyone else. if a cop fucks up, its his problem. i have my own great relationships to maintain and i dont have the patience to deal with hot heads who dont care to think before they act – cop and civilian alike.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    p.s. im on my phone so forgive crappy spelling (autocorrect off) and goofy sentences. its hard to speed and text at the same time.

  • Ariel

    31B,

    So how’s granny and the dog? I think I just read lyrics from a CW song. That was really good.

    You were texting while driving?

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    no. im not texting and driving. just checking deer bait stations turkey boxes and shooting with my sons.

  • t

    Alvin: Who was attackingmyou and calling you names? Wishful thinking? Wanting to feel popular? BTW…was it 1 if by land, or 1 if by sea?

  • Ariel

    31B.

    ” just checking deer bait stations turkey boxes and shooting with my sons.” Good for you and good on you.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    had to reread that to make sure it said shooting WITH my sons and not shooting my sons. LOL

  • Ariel

    31B,

    “if a cop fucks up, its his problem. i have my own great relationships to maintain and i dont have the patience to deal with hot heads who dont care to think before they act – cop and civilian alike.” Damn, we’re in agreement. But, here, I just look at cops.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    ive said it before ill say it again. im not like the crap that the honest blocker/watcher is concerned with. i do my best job and i take pride in my work and community but i’ll call out their bullshit based on shoddy workmanship (editing, biased ‘reporting’, non-issue, etc)

  • Ariel

    31B,

    To be honest, I take any of you here for your word as to how you deport yourself, and what standards you hold yourself to, I only take exception to your arguments. And again, I neither hate police nor idolize them. You’re just people doing a job. If you can’t do it, you shouldn’t do it, and moreover you shouldn’t be allowed to do it if you can’t.

    Poor workmanship is endemic to reporting. How many times have you read nitrogen is toxic or oxygen explodes? I have too many times. Biased reporting is also endemic. This site is more shoddy than others, if only but not solely because you have reports/essays by untrained people, but it’s by degree not by separate category. It has a bias because it has an advocacy, just like any police union, or any other group raised by issue.

    One thing I think you need to realize: what is a non-issue to you or your profession is not necessarily a non-issue to the rest of us.

    BTW, I never once thought you were taking your sons out to shoot them. I don’t think there is a permit for that.

    I hope that photo of Kate doesn’t end up on the calendar. It would ruin the whole fantasy.

    Kate posted her picture …unlike you who hides behind a screen name..

    you take no pride in your work or you would weed out the dirty LEO’s…could you do this?

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    My position about “dirty LEO’s [sic]” is well stated in several threads around here. I’m sure you’re able to find them if you look.

    …badgeabuse… hmm… people in glass houses I suppose.

  • Ariel

    31B,

    People in glass houses is about being judgmental. Unfortunately, your profession is about intimidation, detention, immediate compliance or pain, arrest, and by bad Leos, or ignorant LEOs, bad arrests. And yes we can be judgmental, but we can’t do those things.

    I think you stretched that homily too far.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Ariel,

    Semantics… And as far as the idiom goes, it means “something that you say which means people should not criticize other people for faults that they have themselves”. So, six of one, half a dozen of the other. (See what I did there?)

    And I like my homily with butter and sugar. Maybe some raisins.

  • Ariel

    31B,

    It’s hominy, and I prefer rough, steel cut Irish oatmeal.

    BTW, semantics is “the branch of linguistics and logic concerned with meaning”. Drop it, cuz it doesn’t mean what people think it does. Word-play is a better phrase, but that wasn’t what I was doing.

    Yeah, I did see what you did there, because your phrase is the epitome of what is being judgmental. Or did you mean mistaking homily for hominy? I still prefer rough, steel cut oatmeal; butter, sugar, raisins, or willful sin, banana. Never liked grits, wish I could say it was the sodium/potassium/calcium hydroxide (just because the process calls for lye doesn’t mean..) but tortilla chips are processed similarly, so I think it was just the grits.

    BTW, how did your boys do?

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Ariel,

    You’re so easily trolled. Your zest to be right betrays you. LOL

    The boys did well. My foster son finally worked up the nerve to try a few rounds and loved it, so we’ll be doing it again tomorrow. He’s lived with us for 6 years and he finally gave in and he enjoyed it.

    Now what the wife will think when she hears about this when she finds out is another thing.

  • Ariel

    31B,

    I was just having fun back, especially on the common misusage of semantics. However, are you against zest and being right or just a zest for being right? Or is this still about hominy? No zest there.

    As for being easily trolled, what? I shouldn’t take anything you say seriously?

    Good for you. Learning to handle a gun is an important lesson. Especially if you pound into their mushy heads safe gun handling.

    I’ve never taken in a foster child but have a few teenage girls that were momentarily, as in weeks or months, without a home (my daughter brings home strays, it speaks well of her, and my great-grandfather would be proud), on my dime. It’s a good feeling.

    Your wife will likely have some things to say, but if children were meant to be raised by only one parent they’d only have fathers.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    My wife already knows. Turns out she received a text message from one of the kids and I got a text equivalent of a warning shot over my bow. My wife is in law enforcement, my oldest son intends to go into fire/EMT after college and another is dipping his toe into law enforcement. He has a few years to go yet. My daughters… They’re still working on it but they’ll figure it it out soon enough.

    And gun safety is a major thing in our house.

  • Hitman

    This Ademo Loser is pure ignorance.

  • Ariel

    31B,

    The downside to technology. You just can’t hide what you do.

    I have an Uncle/Aunt team in LE. Their kids went elsewhere from public service. If you are who you say you are, and I accept your words but I can’t verify them, then your kids will likely do those jobs admirably. With the one(s) going into LE properly identifying a target before shooting.

  • Ghost

    Welcome back brother. I hope to read much more from you. I support the idea of banning trolls, especially known cops, from this site. Since they could give a fuck about our rights in court why should you or me give a fuck about their rights on here?

    I have been a silent reader here for some time, only recently voicing my opinion. Since finding Cop Block I have cinstructed my family, and advised my friends, to download Bambuser and record all personal interactions with LEOs.

    Again, welcome back. And please block all known LEOs and trolls. Give them a taste of their own medicine. I’m sure they’ll find it foul!

    TO ALL YOU BADGE WEARING ASSHOLES. BEFORE YOU COMMENT TO ME PERSONALLY, I COULD CARE LESS WHAT YOUR OPINION IS SO FUCK OFF.

  • EvilRadicalDude

    Ghost supports drug addicts and dealing dope. Check.

  • t

    Ghost: I couldnt care less if you could care less.

  • Ariel

    But of course you couldn’t. You’d have to care. You don’t. I’m only agreeing with you in that you don’t care. You don’t.
