LMAO damn if only there was a way to not have people sleeping in tents in the park.

Like the fact that you think this story, from a city that spends nearly 25% of its budget on police, shows how much we need cops as opposed to how messed up the priorities are is funny as hell.

If only eh.

I would start by seeing how many homeless people you could help get off the streets with a single VPD cops' starting salary of $72K.

I don't know, how many? Why don't you get on that.

You know the old saying: act like a dink while defending cops, get PPB'd.

Interesting twitter thread here on NYPD pigs racking up lawsuits that get paid out with taxpayer funds while escaping any formal discipline.

Not only should these cops face discipline from the departments, money for the settlements should come right out of the police budget.

Agreed.  That bill is going to be shot down by a court very quickly.  Terrible law.

Not a great idea but on the other hand, no one has the right to stand six inches from you screaming obscenities into your face. I don't see why police or any other first responders should have to put up with it while they are trying to do their job. It will depend on how it is applied, courts should set a high bar for convictions.

I reserve the right to fling middle fingers or obscenities at cops just as I can anyone else in public.  Screaming in someone's face might be a stretch, people could get cited for disturbing the peace.  Cops don't need more excuses to arrest people, they're already on power trips.

Wow. I don't know what kind of interactions you guys are having with the police but they don't seem to be the same as 90% of people.

Agreed.  I hate interacting with cops and they seem to instantly recognize me as being overly compliant and thus hate talking to me too.  I don't think I have spent more than 10 seconds at a RIDE stop - they just whisk me through.  They can smell the legality.
