The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

A plethora of videos showing our constabulary in action popped up over the weekend.  They show the police in action ranging from good cops to bad cops to cops who get the job done regardless of how it might look to someone else. Enjoy.

The Good

Cop pulls over dude for speeding.  It turns out Mario Andretti is long on speed and short on fashion.  The plot to this caper thickens when the cop finds out he didn't know how to tie a tie.  Watch the video for the rest of the story.

The Bad

This video is the complete opposite of the first one.  Alabama cop responds to an accident.  The man getting out of the SUV with his wallet in hand is the one who called the police.  Remember, this is an accident, not a crime in progress. Get ready to get mad.

Two courts upheld this shooting.  The incident occurred three years ago but the video was just released. Article.

The Ugly

IHOP in Florida on a late weekend night.  What could possibly go wrong when women, alcohol, Florida, and IHOP are mixed together for a Youtube cocktail? Did I mention that coffee canisters were testing the laws of physics as they flew across the room or that the manager tried to throw them out for bringing alcohol into the IHOP?  The cops are trying to break up everything without much success until another cop shows up and takes charge (2:00).  It wasn't a pretty sight but he got everything under control in record time and those who needed to be arrested were arrested.  Five people went to jail that night.

The women who said they didn't do anything and check the video? Well, they were the ones who were doing the attacking.  News report on incident.

First one...nice job office!

Second one...I thought he came out with a gun, and I knew something was up...

Third one...this is why we can't have nice things. Cop did a nice job controlling the situation.

As police have now appear to have a blanket right to shoot if they have the slightest fear for their lives, I think we might need to go back to the Cold War frame of mind. Remember the "Run, duck and cover" drills we did starting from elementary school when the RED Nuclear Scare was prevalent. EVERY MORNING, after the pledge of Allegiance (do we still do that daily pledge?), students should recite whatever mantra the police come up with that gives instructions on how not to get shot. Be quiet, hands up and open, drop to the ground spread eagle. Of course if you're Black, non of these instructions apply. Pray, get shot and hopefully you will survive long enough to sue the hell out of the government.

That's every morning, for every student right up through HS.

Five bucks says the cop in the second video has a Roll Tide sticker on his truck.

@ 2:27 AM:
Be the change you want to see. Apply for and join a local police agency, and start the change from within. If not, then just keep bitching about something you know nothing about.

Remember video #2 when you plant one of those "support the badge" signs in your yard.

Ditto @8:12 but what do you expect from someone awake at 2:27 am?

From the looks of things, the officers that initially responded were a bit overwhelmed. Then, the Ole Sarge arrives. No BS, No PC just commands in a way and language the crowd understood. As a retired Sgt. from south Florida, he did EXACTLY what was needed to take control of the situation. Some people bitch, moan and complain about police abuse. I saw none of that in the video. His Command Presence took control of the situation. Great Job! Amazing, no pepper spray, no tazer, no asp and no gunfire. I'd give him a commendation.

Hey, 7:49, I'll take that bet. No f@cking way a cop that works for Opelika PD sports anything that says "Roll Tide." 50 bucks his personal vehicle has an "All In - Fambluh!" sticker. Guarantee he's a booger.

Cops today are nothing more than a bunch of uneducated hotheads who are too stupid to get a real job. Most were picked on when they were kids and just love the power a badge and a gun gives them. I never feel safer when I see a cop. I don't know anyone who does.

The cops in Fort Myers, Florida handled that situation well. That should be used for training purposes.

For the twentieth time you Goobers: What difference does it make to you what time of day or night people post to a blog? Not everybody has the same sleep pattern as you and not everybody gets to cruise in to work at 9:00 am or later. Many of us are up odd hours for a variety of reasons, none of which is any of your damned business, 9:57 a.m.

PS: He might have been up early talking to your old lady on the phone.

10:47 --

My parents (one of whom is an Auburn graduate) have lived in Opelika since 2001. The split in Opelika (among non-college grads) is 50-50 at best, maybe a slight edge -- say 55-45 -- in favor of the tree-poisoners. Lots and lots of white trash Updyke supporters. Promise.

I don't think anyone really had a problem with the Florida cop. Did what needed to be done.

Now Bama cop, different story.

Don't get out of the car unless the police tell you to, and when you do don't have something in your hand. Yeah, the police were idiots, but the driver here contributed to getting shot. These guys sometimes have to make a decision in a split second and they're not always going to make the correct one.

Fmickns... you are exactly what's wrong with this country and why President Trump was elected. Don't want to have an encounter with the cops dont break the law. Yeah it's that simple. Teach your kids responsibility instead of entitlement. You are owed nothing.

9:33 nailed it. I thought the 2nd dude had a gun. Not sure I would have plugged him so quickly. Last video, dems some form fitting dresses.

Where'd you go to college? Let me guess. It's either (a) you didn't; or (b) somewhere like Lurleen Wallace JUCO or South Alabama or Montevallo.

Like 85% of the Updyke fan base, you didn't go to UAT. Did you?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
