Buddy, you are greatly miss-representing the Southern Pines Police.
Nope. Bullies that hide behind badges. Even if a person has history was he doing anything wrong then DH? No. Accosted and forced to a confrontation. Not appropriate for officers.
I don't mind all cops, it's mostly an age thing. If they are below 35, typically they are gung ho and rude. However officers like Bob Temme I have all the respect in the world for.
The youngins need to learn civility and not over step authority. It takes years of getting put in place the hot heads need to cool down.
He don't like it when you call him Big Pope-a
How about numbers on that, Mr. Natt?
That would require reporting rather than just regurgitating a press release. This is the Pilot after all, you expect them to do real reporting?
It's mostly a question of force and the escalation of it. Recently in downtown S.P. they have been doing foot patrols in plain clothes. Harassing and not presenting themselves in a professional manner. Two incidents recently come to mind. Two undercover officers accosted a man in a wheel chair. When the man forced the officers (who did not display badges but issued orders as an officer) out of his way they pulled him out of his wheelchair onto the ground. Another is on duty officers having a Friday night drink in Jefferson Inn and chatting it up with their off duty buddies moon lighting as bouncers.
Officers doing their duty is one thing. Abusing authority and harassing town folk aren't one of them though.
If the Rev. assaulted the officer he should be tazed. However, if the officer pokes, prods, and bullies to get a reaction so they can use their taser, well they should be reprimanded severely and not given a week off with pay.
Long story short, Do like the Russians and install dash and interior cams for your vehicle. They will protect a citizen when it is their word against the officer. Even A.G. Roy Cooper approves of their use to keep officers and citizens honest in documenting abuse.
Dear The Pilot:
Please don't close this thread. It's too amusing.
B-but robots will bring about Post Scarcity and it will be amazing.
Get off his case and stick to facts.
Fact: Tillman is a paid shill for legalized loan sharks.
Fact: Tillman is a paid shill for the fracking industry trying to rape NC land.
It is meant to malign, defame, and slander the man with the most power on earth.
"Most powerful man on earth" yet he is too weak and feeble to wear red slippers and a big hat. That is too much for his bones. Besides it is hard to defame a man when truths like him being in the Hitler Youth and later in his church career, knowingly, hid pedophiles from the law are public knowledge.
It was for an HBO show about Basketball abroad.
Unsurprisingly, the former Chicago Bull’s visit, along with three current Harlem Globetrotters and a crew from “Vice,” the HBO “news magazine series” that arranged the trip, was extensively covered on North Korean state television, which is no more averse to reporting on staged events as news than the producers of the American reality television shows Mr. Rodman now gets paid to spice up.
An atheist buys an ancient lamp at an auction, takes it home, and begins to polish it. Suddenly, a genie appears, and says, “I’ll grant you three wishes, Master.” The atheist says, “I wish I could believe in you.” The genie snaps his fingers, and suddenly the atheist believes in him. The atheist says, “Wow. I wish all atheists would believe this.” The genie snaps his fingers again, and suddenly atheists all over the world begin to believe in genies. “What about your third wish?” asks the genie. “Well,” says the atheist, “I wish for a billion dollars.” The genie snaps his fingers for a third time, but nothing happens. “What’s wrong?” asks the atheist. The genie shrugs and says, “Just because you believe in me, doesn’t necessarily mean that I really exist.”
