Sick Of The Local Rambos commented on Making Sense
quote: "Any cop that reacts that vehemently to someone saying "Watch the **** where you're going!" after they're almost run over, either needs additional training, or an entirely new line of work." Why? The taxpayers can pay the damages for whatever he does in the future. The only thing that...

quote: "Sick, you aren't the cops. Have you ever been a real cop? Have you ever patrolled a street, highway, etc. and answered calls like our police do? Handled life and death situations? I doubt it." Yes, I have. And in 30 years of driving Sheriff's Office vehicles (Albemarle County, City of...

Never Been-- would you care to comment on Flaherty's own potty mouth? Or, as I now suspect, do you not actually know him...? Didn't think so... Personally, I like the guy, but HE SCREWED UP. Your blaming two people whose only crime was legally walking in a crosswalk is beyond ridiculous. Any...
common sense commented on Making Sense
never been to a game... Officer Flaherty screwed up. He lost his temper in front a half dozen people. He is lucky that he didn't get punched in the face for his behavior. If had been under my command he would have been forced to make a public apology or resign. I will defend any police officer who...
Never Been to a Game commented on Making Sense
The key here is in the first paragraph: "a pair of incidents..." I said it then and will repeat: only in a lib town like Cville could we have time to appoint an advocacy panel for "pedestrians" in an overreaction to a couple of incidents. Mr. Mitchell aside, how many twits do we see in Cville...

SOTLR - we don't know if lack of peripheral vision caused this accident. It could have been driver inattention, or any of a number of other causes. Doesn't excuse it, but to be fair, we have to acknowledge that this happens sometimes. If ordinary citizens are ticketed for causing this sort of...
Second guessing commented on Making Sense
Ahh, Sick of the local rambos, always second guessing the cops. Sicko says: "What would I have done in this case? I would have pulled my patrol car into such a position so as to block the eastbound traffic on Main Street, which of course would have sheilded Mitchell from the oncoming eastbound...
Sick Of The Local Rambos commented on Making Sense
Whether this type of incident could happen to anybody or not is a subject wide open to a great debate. When you go into DMV they test your peripheral vision. If your peripheral vision is not good enough to see a big man in a wheelchair just a few feet to your left, I'm not sure you have a right...
It's Not Too Late commented on Making Sense
Common Sense, your comment hits the nail right on the head. You're right, it could have happened to any of us. I know quite a few good cops and understand how incredibly tough and stressful their jobs can be. I've always been a supporter of Longo, his leadership style, and his vision for the...
