You would think I wrote the cops were 100% right in what they did based on you guy's responses to what I wrote. :-/


He wasn't in the house, he was outside.

i read your first post, but your second sounded like you changed your mind, and was a poor devil's advocate if that wasn't your intent. Makes things confusing for those of us that take civil liberties and police abuse more seriously, especially in a seemingly ridiculous circumstance.


I've been so drunk that I woke up peeing in my dogs water dish...so yea you can not know whats going on when wasted.. What idiot would hide in the front yard in a sleeping bag.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Ah, I stand corrected. I missed that part. :-/

Don't misunderstand :-) , I do take police brutality seriously, and if it's proven they went overboard (which it appears they did), then I hope they get the maximum punishment for it.

As to taking civil liberties seriously, I know you are a lot deeper into that kind of thing than I am, so I know I'm out of my depth on that one. For me, it depends on what exactly we are dealing with, as to how serious I get.

Anyway, I was simply pointing out that there was another way to look at this story, that way people didn't just arbitrarily trash people for doing something that the poster might not understand, consider, or even think about. We have a lot of guys who just jump to conclusions without thinking, so I was just showing another side of the coin is all. ;-)

i respect the police, but if they are guilty of brutality(and it sounds like they are),,,, i hope the 2 do get what is coming to them..... too bad we will never get to see it on TV though,,, as i imagine it will be erased from the COPS show....

I hope you at least bought the dog a new dish, because... ewww :-b

I have a friend who got hammered and used a public urinal for a much bigger job. That was pretty hilarious too. :-D

Both are idiots here. The cops shouldn't of just gone up to him and zapped him or whatever happened but that dumbass shouldve listened too, Ive never been drunk enough to not understand what someone was saying.

it's not that he couldn't understand just because he was drunk, he was also dazed from SLEEPING. i can totally understand that.

seems to me the police acted too rashly and quickly. had they yelled at him a couple of more times or something, i'm sure he would've regained his bearings enough to comply.

then again, without seeing the clip, there's no way to tell for sure who's right and who's wrong.

It actually seems quite purposeful. He was in a sleeping bag up near the side of a relatives house. He must semi-plan for this sort of thing. Probably drove their hammered and got out to sleep b/c you can get a DUI if you are sleeping in your car while hammered.

You can also get a DWI for driving while hammered. Lol. :-D

Bet the cops start scouting out that house for awhile. :-b
