    After 2:25, it's just basically commentary.

    Also, the kid was NOT on probation or the like. Not sure what the cop was talking about when he mentioned probation.



    Meanwhile, we are letting kiddy diddlers out of jail early due to over crowding. Got to make room for kids not wearing helmets on a bicycle.

    I think the problem is cops taking every little thing so personal, and enforcing laws just because they can.

    Why mess with the guy selling individual cigarettes? Honestly, who cares?

    Why arrest someone for simple weed possession? It is very likely that you have just created a career criminal. Go apply for a job, apartment, damned near anything, with a rap sheet. Good fuck luck chuck.

    Who here hasn't broken the law? Somewhere around 40% of US citizens have smoked pot. How do you arrest someone for doing something (victimless) that close to half the population has done?

    In some countries, a 3-4 year college degree in law enforcement is required to be a police officer.

    In america, in general, what is the minimum requirement, a GED?


    It will never change drastically enough to matter. Look into the Whole Foods monopoly lawsuit. That is honestly scary and put things into real perspective for me. Pure evil.

    I guess, at the end of the day, just live your life and don't worry about trying to change the country's politics and practices. We have it pretty good I guess, so whatever. Our great, great grand children are the ones likely to really, really suffer. At this point, political discourse is just entertainment. Governments are uncontrollable monsters.

    He got arrested because he tried to run. What's the problem?

    Hopefully those police made it home safe to their families.

    Perhaps he was scared they were going to kill him. Its not like the police have ever murdered an unarmed kid or anything.

    He was on a bike.

    Plus, have you not been watching the news lately? Black guy, bicycle, cops? That is a volatile list of ingredients.

    See now we're seeing a very sticky dynamic: black people are so scared of being killed by the police that they run away, which, of course, makes them more likely to be killed by the police. There needs to be really thorough and extensive community outreach and education to the black community, from law enforcement. The body count's only gonna pile up faster as this trend continues.

    When I was a kid, wearing a bicycle helmet around the neighborhood would be a good way to get your ass kicked. :icon_lol:

    This, I feel bad for the kid for being arrested and the cops were completely out of line acting like they were going to search the entire pad, but you can't run away from them and not expect them to come after you. In fact they don't have a choice. That's part of their job, they can't just be like "oh well, he can run away, I won't chase him."

    Nanny state laws give cops authority to be overbearing, I.E. "police state".

    When some feel good politicians knee jerk react to a bunch of overbearing mothers making laws that police then have to enforce. Then you got issues.

    People not wearing helmets is a personal responsibility, parenting problem.

    We need cops to be freed up to do real police work, which doesn't include chasing around rebellious little brats.

    If you had to ask, then you'll probably never know.

    Surely there has to be more to that situation.

    Do you really think it's threadworthy to post a video of the cops enforcing a petty law? This is so mundane that it actually manages to be remarkable for being so boring and pointless.

    The solution to the logical equation of your post is, this is a remarkable thread.

    I see your point.

    But the reality is, if you were holding, etc... and just happened by cops who weren't pursuing you, or trying to stop you in some form, it is unlikely that you would draw attention to yourself by running.

    So the question is, were they trying to pull him over for not wearing a helmet and then he ran?

    They look for any reason to pull certain types of people over, mainly to fight the war on drugs, which is the dumbest war ever (because of the way it is fought).

    Winning the war on drugs is not that difficult (and if it was done correctly, a very noble and worthy war), but the government doesn't want to win the war on drugs because the government plays both sides. There is a lot of evidence of this.




    Also, we need to educate the youth better. LSD, pot, etc... Tell kids not to do them, but be honest about the harm they cause.

    Opiates, meth, and coke products, these are the drugs that kids need to be educated on and how very dangerous they really are.


    But drug education kind of puts all drugs in this "ruins your life" category, and kids experiment with things like pot, and it doesn't ruin their lives, and they think the educators are full of shit and keep on experimenting.

    And doctors need to quit willy nilly prescribing pain meds without proper education. I have broken many bones and had a fair share of injuries, and not once was I educated on possible addiction to the meds.

    I wonder what the numbers are of normal everyday adults who were prescribed something for legitimate pain who are now full blown addicts.

    Not wearing a helmet.

    Getting fined for cycling on an empty pavement.

    Fucking pigs. Things like that are carte blanche things to stop anyone cops don't like but don't have a legit reason to stop them and white ppl are all "I'm ok with this".

    Australia is one of only two countries in the world with national all-age mandatory bicycle helmet laws and compulsory helmets have also destroyed cycling numbers. Not surprised when some pig can stop you for such shit.

    The IPA is not an objective source for anything to do with regulation of any sort.

    For instance looking at the numbers of children cycling doesn't take into account that kids these days are more likely to play video games than spend their time riding around the block, and that parents are much less likely to let kids just ride around like they used to.

    That said, the laws are pointless, are definitely something of a barrier and haven't been proven to help in any way.

    It's hard to tell from the video. Obviously the cops overreacted by sending so many officers, especially the guy who was doing the talking about forcefully removing the kid from the house. That being said, the guy taking the video is an idiot too. Yelling "fuck the police" to the cops isn't going to help his son's case.
