Now I’m getting all verklempft: two Broward Sherrif’s officers bought a bicycle for a boy who had his stolen and broken. I’m glad the BSO has a blog to keep us up to date on their deeds. No mention of the rubber bullets incident, but you can get a kick out of those who think this excuses any future police abuse. That’s right Rick, you remind us about this incident every time a cop tases someone for hogging a microphone or beats up a kid for riding a skateboard.

    Alesh, really. Do you ignore what people write in the comments of CM or do you just not understand it? Or there is, of course, the 3rd possibility where you intentionally misrepresent things.

    Which one is it?

    The comment you link to is from a post about cops kicking the shit out of people and having a good laugh doing it, and the courts that recognized that and awarded the victims compensation.

    You launched right into defending cops, without so much as a “the police in this situation were criminal, but . . .”

    I call out cops all the time here at SotP.

    Yes. You were pretty good on Timoney. But in that instance he was taking a sort-of bribe. . . In all the instances where cops actually abuse and attack people, your usual response is something like “that guy was an asshole, and he had it coming.”

    How about when they’re speeding and run over people, Alesh? Does that count for you?

    I’ve settled on the “intentionally misrepresent” reason myself.

    Shining example of Florida’s finest.
