Rifle-Pointing Ferguson Cop Removed From Front Line [Video NSFW]

Sgt. Patrick Hayes wrote an article for TTAG criticizing the police response to demonstrators in Fergsuon, Missouri in the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting. The above video was uploaded to YouTube last night. In it, a police officer wanders down the street, pointing his rifle at protesters. At about 30 seconds in, he points the carbine at multiple people and says, “I will f@cking kill you. Get back!” The person recording the video asks the officer for his name. “Go f@ck yourself,” he replies. “It looks like the officer has been removed from duty,” theconcourse.deadspin.com reports. “Today, the ACLU of Missouri sent a letter to the Missouri Highway Patrol calling for the cop to be removed, and now, the ACLU is reporting on Twitter that the deed is done.” Question: what was he doing out there in the crowd on his own, anyway?

    He seems to have that 1000 yard stare, IMHO.

      There is a clearer video shot from a position slightly ahead of this one. I’ve been trying to find a good link to post. If anyone has a link, it would save me some time on this slow netbook.

        1. avatar John in Ohio says:

          Yep, that’s it. Thanks! Someone had posted it downstream also. The officer looks like he snapped to me.

      1. avatar Mr Pierogie says:

        But where’s our troll extraordinaire El Mac, defending this cop, or proclaiming how TTAG is anti-cop, again? Oh I know, El Mac wants to give this poor cop an MRAP, so he won’t be confronted by folks with cameras when he sweeps them with his rifle, from the security of his ‘truck.’

  2. avatar Michael Nieto says:

    IMO removing this officer is not in any way an over reaction he committed a felony by brandishing a rifle and threatening to kill someone. honestly he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent

    1. avatar 16V says:

      God, It’s been decades since I’ve done ‘shrooms…

      Seriously, you must be high or joking. Every day 24/7/365 cops point guns at unarmed citizens and threaten to kill them. There’s hours of footage of the brown clowns (in camo, so I guess they’re camo clowns) pointing guns at protesters.

      Charges? The entire line will eventually be cited for bravery and promoted.

    2. avatar Bobby C King says:

      Look at the personnel records in your local town. Maybe this Officer was worried about all the jobs he and his family members stand to loose if we have competently trained Police Officers in a Government with Limited Power.

      When a person sees that his very way of life may change because we need competent persons in positions of power, not persons hired based on nepotism, this mans actions are those of fear. Look beyond the surface and find the root of the problem. OH sorry there I go again being; radical wanting to hire qualified professionals, not bubba’s beer drinking brothers cousin.

      But when the family tree is a stump, you see what we see in the video above. A “clueless” person in a position of power, not qualified and wrongfully trained using paramilitary tactics that not only bring a defensive air, but incite defensive reactions and start the creation of a atmosphere of fear. That fear will snowball and escalate.

      Who is this guy related to that got him the job?

      Maybe its time to check all personnel records in Ferguson? Lets see if they hire the most qualified personnel? Or do they hire based on nepotism?

      1. avatar Bobby C King says:

        If anyone should decide to do some research into nepotism, make sure to look at other Law Enforcement Agency’s in your area. You may even want to look at where relatives of his work? Often it is a practice in the brotherhood to hire at other Departments and “trade out” in order to avoid policy that prevents nepotism.

        Just saying: How did the bubba in the video get hired. If your going to look, take a good look.

        1. avatar 16V says:

          Nepotism? This is just SOP.

          Training for the last 10-20 years nationwide has been about “achieving control” of all situations. Which means that they are trained from day one to do anything to achieve this fantasy of “control”. Shotty to the head of a protestor and death threats? That’s policy.

          “I’m gonna effen kill you” is a trained phraseology, and available in at least one cop abuse vid per day. This is standard training all POST-certified cops have gotten for decades. Intimidation and strong arming are acceptable (and encouraged) tactics.

          ” OH sorry there I go again being; radical wanting to hire qualified professionals, not bubba’s beer drinking brothers cousin.”

          You don’t know how right you are.

        3. avatar Bobby C King says:

          Oh, but yes I do know. I just wish more Americans would WAKE UP and take the time to check into the hiring practices of the public authorities and who really holds public jobs…??

          The hiring is done purely on politics. No qualifications required….

    3. avatar Bobby C King says:

      You can trust that this Officer will get prosecuted to the full extent of the rules and law that Govern his conduct. Unfortunately “We the People live under a different set of rules. That is the very definition of TYRANNY.

      1. avatar David P. says:

        Couldn’t agree more. If I was in a self defense shooting, not in law enforcement capacity, with the exact same situation the rules would change. My name would be realeased that night. I would be told, by the police, that there is little excuse for shooting an unarmed boy. I would not have a 24 hour guard. If there was rioting in the streets I would not be allowed to point a weapon at people and then spin around with no muzzle control like this guy.
        The police have, from the beginning, and continue to F this up beyond all possible recongition. I will wait till all the details our out before I pass judgment but as a gun owner I can sympathize with being a lower class citizen, in being told we can do it but you are not allowed- “we’re the guvment”

    4. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

      I agree. Hopefully, nobody learns his name and home address, and tells CNN about it. Heavens to Betsy, what dreadfulness might ensue!

    5. You guys are being too hard on Paul T. McCain. He was just showing you how to correctly open carry not like the Chipotle ninjas of OCT.

  3. avatar USMCVeteran says:

    A classic case of a bad cop that needs/needed adult supervision.

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      Yes. In the form of a parole officer.

      1. avatar borg says:

        He needs to have a legal guardian appointed.

      And got it. Looks like a Highway Patrol Sergeant walked up to him and told him his night was over right then and there..

  4. avatar C says:

    Given the shit that’s been going on, i think it’s pretty understandable if a lone cop’s a little on edge. Extenuating circumstances, ya dig?

    1. avatar thekeeper215 says:

      With all due respect, it is clear you never served a day in the military. Too often, citizens are too sympathetic with over aggressive cops because their jobs are “dangerous.” Allow me to educate the common man; training, training, and more training. Let us not forget discipline, which is a direct result of training. It is exactly why recruits are broken down as individuals and built back up as a team whether that is Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, and so on and so on. The police simply fail here. The police are simply not trained or disciplined enough to handle extremely complicated situations. I can recall more than one situation where I was staring an armed threat in the face with a gun pointed at me, and being yelled at in god knows what language and I never once blinked let alone raised my weapon or threatened to kill someone. And these are known terrorist we are talking about, let alone a fellow American. I hope that so called police officer rots in jail for the rest of his life, or better yet, gets caught alone in dark alley by some real American heroes. We shall not accept police brutality or militarization, ever.

      1. avatar The Brotherhood of Steel says:

        I think you hit the nail one the head with discipline. Discipline, discipline, discipline, All. Day. Long. Something the military is full of, and the police force is totally lacking in. When it comes to failures and over reactions of individual officers, self discipline is at the heart of the issue.

        1. avatar Jus Bill says:

          CORRECT!!!!!

        2. avatar C says:

          yeah, discipline. But i’m not about to try ruining this f–kers life over this.

        3. avatar Hannibal says:

          Wait, I thought we were AGAINST police militarization… now you want to make them more like the military?

      2. avatar 16V says:

        Thanks for the sanity of the perspective. Being a cop isn’t dangerous in the least compared to jobs that Joe and Jane Public do every day without even thinking about, let alone constantly whining about, potentially ‘not coming home from work’.

        The reality is that if you flinch because someone who isn’t even pointing a gun at you is somehow “threatening” you are in the wrong line of work as a cop. In the days before CCW was legal in many places, I’ve accumulated 5 occasions of gun, from pointblank to touching my skull. Still here. Now that we’ve pansified even the cops, they have no idea what the coppers of 50 years ago would have done to them for being such girly-man kitty cats. Guy charges cop with a knife and cop shoots him? My grandfather would have had your head (and career, and likely badge) for that. If you couldn’t deal with a knife attack with a slapjack/springjack and your fighting abilities, you had no business as a copper. (This was in Chicago, back when it actually was violent, not this penny-ante nonsense that’s called a “dangerous city”.)

        1. avatar Joe says:

          Your opinion speaks of someone who obviously has no idea how dangerous a knife can be, even in the hands of someone who doesn’t know how to use it properly. I can fight reasonably well and wouldn’t try to disarm a 13 year old with a knife if I had a choice in the matter. It doesn’t take much to cause some pretty horrific injuries.

        2. avatar C says:

          I, for one, am glad that 1950’s Chicago was protected exclusively by protagonists from Steven Seagal movies.

        3. avatar int19h says:

          Being a cop is actually less dangerous than many “civilian” occupations, like pizza delivery or farming…

        4. avatar Toby in KS says:

          On occasion, my 12 year old son and I will break out the Crayola markers and play knife fight. In less than 30 seconds we are bleeding green and blue all over our arms, face and torsos. Yes, I said WE. Its a heap of fun, but I always take a look in the mirror while I am washing off the ink just to notice how many fatal jabs the pubescent spawn got in… he’s not half bad. I sleep better at night knowing that, too.

          Now that you have imagined my 12 year old marking up my kidney with a green marker (not to mention all the ink on my forearms), imagine disarming an angry adult with a 5 inch hunting folder. Not a pretty little daydream, is it?

        5. avatar 16V says:

          Thanks, I’m quite well aware of how dangerous a knife can be. I’m also even more aware of how much ‘risk inflation’ goes on in the world today – especially with regards to “officer safety”.

          I know that cops are no longer trained how to disarm people with knives or clubs. I know that even with two officers on scene, the current training answer is TASE or shoot. Not club and wrestle (which used to be the training).

      3. avatar TT says:

        @theKeeper215: And if you had behaved like this officer did while you were in the military you likely would have received punishment (perhaps severe) instead of a paid vacation. Reward bad behavior, i.e. paid administrative leave for misconduct followed by a union-controlled hearing resulting in a “reprimand,” like you do with police and, shockingly, you get more bad behavior. Some real accountability for officer misconduct would tighten this mess up real quick.

        Maybe I’m getting off topic, but perhaps government employees shouldn’t be allowed to unionize.

        1. avatar thekeeper215 says:

          TT, you make a great point. You are absolutely correct. In the military that act would be punishable with jail sentence and dishonorable discharge. It is so blatantly obvious how out of control police forces are, and to your point the fraud, waste, and abuse in our government is sickening.

    2. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

      No deal. That’s the job. If he can’t handle the stress, like countless other Americans handle their stressful jobs every day, then he can quit or be re-assigned. Let this bully with a badge pull meter maid duty.

      1. avatar DavyJones says:

        I think the officer in the vid literally hit his mental breaking point, im not condoning his actions, bit i think these past few days have been incredibly difficult for those officers involved in Ferguson.

        1. avatar Paul53 says:

          To say the same, only different, he looks to me like he’s found himself in an unfamiliar situation. Not having the built in instructions that training provides, he’s doing the best he can to maintain control. The overboard anger and aggression have to do with instinctive self preservation. At least I hope that’s it. Or maybe the guy is just a dick.

  5. avatar Ralph says:

    He looked like he was scared sh!tless. It’s better for him and everyone else if he gets some time off. A scared cop is an incident waiting to happen, and Ferguson doesn’t need another incident.

    1. avatar rlc2 says:

      Yep. And not excusing the behavior, but the aggressive response by ‘protesters’ wasn’t helping any.

      Noticing a lot of people with accents from out-of-town acting like A-holes, spouting their narrative, feeding off the bad situation to make it worse.

      And having various ‘protesters’ lobbing bottles of piss, and molotovs, and reportedly, gunfire directed at officers is probably making “staying cool” that much harder for small town cops who have had little or any riot training, and have probably been working 12+ hour days continuously.

      The only surprise here is that some one hasn’t snapped yet.

      1. avatar C says:

        you and I; i think we’re mostly on the same page.

      2. avatar gp says:

        The goal of many of those hooligans is to provoke police violence. Shame on them.

        1. avatar Skyler says:

          That’s what “community organizers” do. They organize riots and civil disturbances.

      3. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

        Missouri is not Maine. It has more local police departments than 42 other states. It has more law enforcement employees, at all levels, than 35 other states. It is home to two major U.S. cities, several world renown universities, and multiple Fortune 500 companies. It’s not some semi-modern backwater.

        They have the resources, equipment and personnel to handle this. No excuses for this officer or any others who feel stressed, afraid, exhausted or ill prepared.

  6. avatar Frank Masotti says:

    Um bad cop if I ever saw one.

    1. avatar Kevin L says:

      Yep, bad person coupled with the ‘Us vs them’ mentality equals a real fustercluck.

  7. avatar polarbear says:

    IMHO this officer is no better than the looters. He is a menace.

    Cops issue command like, get back, off the street, etc., not death threats. Thugs use threats to get their way, police use authority and respect, both of which this officer does not deserve.

  8. avatar Pantera Vazquez says:

    Question: what was he doing out there in the crowd on his own, anyway?
    Response: being an unprofessional a-hole.
    As such permanent removal from a professional PD should be the end result, followed by being brought up on charges-as opposed to a likely taxpayer subsidized suspension/vacation, once the local police union gets involved.

    1. avatar Jus Bill says:

      I think he snapped from the stress. He needs a psych eval. But he shouldn’t be a cop nay more. He really showed the whole world that he can’t handle the job.

  9. avatar Jug says:

    Yep, likely pretty stressed out, and all, because his superiors screwed things up from the get-go.

    And they haven’t been doing any better since.
    They not only knew that the “boys” pulled the robbery but they also withheld the fact that the “so called victim” had smashed the cops face at first contact.

    How much better things would have went if they had been forth coming from the get-go!

    But that just isn’t the way our govt at any level operates today!

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      The problem: if you or I did that, we would be sitting in a jail cell right now.

      No matter how stressed and sleep deprived I may be, I don’t get a pass for that behavior. It doesn’t matter if I am going through a divorce, if my spouse or a child is dying of cancer, if I am facing foreclosure, my children are hungry, whatever. We the People do not get a pass. Neither should officer “I am going to kill you”.

      1. avatar John in Ohio says:

        Aye. It baffles me that some don’t see it that way. We’re all supposed to be equal under the law. If we aren’t then what have we become?

      2. avatar HamChuck says:

        This. If he was one of us, them they’d charge him with attempted murder, making terroristic threats, brandishing, disorderly conduct and who knows what else. Him? He gets a paid vacation.

    Anon has made public this guy’s Name, Address, SS number, Phone numbers, Previous Addresses, and Family info. The clock is ticking for this porker… Lets hope they move faster than he can slip into witpro.

    1. avatar John in Ohio says:

      His name and department was known before “Anonymous” posted anything. Doxing everything except his SSN would’ve been easy-peasy without “Anonymous'” *ahem* help.

  11. avatar Bob says:

    To you cops who are tired of being bashed: this is why. There is no shortage of unambiguous videos of blatant abuse by cop.

    Police are one of the few organizations that get to hold themselves accountable. It’s no wonder. It’s also no wonder why complaints and incidents of use of force go way down when body cameras are deployed.

    1. avatar 16V says:

      Which is why police and their unions still fight dashcams. Bodycams? Only the 1 in 10 honest cops want anything to do with them.

  12. avatar Mark N. says:

    There have been a number of arrests of reporters (two of whom were arrested for “trespassing” at a McDonald’s), teargasing of film crews, etc. Why are the police so paranoid about the press? This is just another case of police intimidation of people who are not the problem. Why?

    1. avatar C says:

      Dude. If i had the chance to tear gas some journalist types I’d be all over that.

    2. avatar Unapologetic American says:

      A majority aren’t legitimate journalists, they’re Leftist agitators, provocateurs, enablers, and propagandists, they deserve a nightstick to the teeth for their anti-cop, anti-White, “reporting” and “yes” I mean CNN/MSNBC and other “alternative outlets” allied with OWS/Occupy bowel movement etc.

      1. avatar TT says:

    3. avatar Hannibal says:

      So you think that having a camera means you’re allowed to squat in a business and refuse to leave when they (the business!) tells you to?

      1. avatar HamChuck says:

        Is that what happened? They were trespassing? Glad the cops were dealing with those nasty trespassers instead if keeping business from being looted and burned to the ground. Safer dealing with trespassing than looting. Officer safety maintained. Mission accomplished.

    Wow. That guy is totally out of control. He just committed a bunch of crimes.
    Here’s the AP story on it.

    1. avatar JR_in_NC says:

      That’s actually a pretty cool little article…stuck fairly closely to ‘just the facts.’

      No mention of Brown being “unarmed,” just matter-of-factly stated that he was shot by a Ferguson officer.

      Only qualm…”semi-automatic assault rifle.” Oh well.

      Overall, we need more reporting like this and less baiting and pontificating and less “change the world” from reporters.

  14. avatar G2022 says:

    Here is a clearer video of the incident.

      I’ve been looking for a good link to that one. Thanks!

  15. avatar Phil L. says:

    Of course, let’s be a bit careful how we judge someone for a single incident in a high-stress situation.

    It appears that the same officer – in a different time, and different stress – helped pull suspect from a burning SUV:

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      Phil,

      I just commented above. You could be incredibly stressed from a divorce, family member dying of cancer, financial ruin, etc. and sleep deprived, and you would go to prison for that behavior. Neither you nor I get a pass for being stressed. Neither does he.

      Now, I would be willing to entertain a lighter prison sentence for honest-to-goodness extenuating circumstances — like being stressed about two weeks of rioting and no break from work. That is up to the judge at sentencing.

  17. avatar jwm says:

    Yep, ferguson pd is a total clusterphuck. Makes my point about bad leadership. All the elected officials and the chief should be replaced for allowing their pd to get this bad.

    What this officer did was way out of line. But why did he feel free to act this way in a public setting? Instead of rioting the people of ferguson should be mounting recall efforts for their city officials.

    1. avatar int19h says:

      No kidding. How about charging a guy with “property damage” for bleeding on the shirt of a cop who beat him up in his cell?! That’s Ferguson PD for you.

    Yeah, I would like to see him fired. His actions are completely irresponsible.

    They really need to let the NG be the face of this. Let them set up check points with a 100 percent ID check, only allow residents of the area access to blocked roads, and just sit there behind some up armored trucks with our without even having loaded weapons. Then have a few patrol cars roaming around behind the lines to arrest people who make it through. If you don’t allow for any nonsense, people get tired of trying to start nonsense real quick.

      By George, I think I got it! Thanks for the solution…..

      1. avatar Luciferian says:

        Thanks for the daily dose of hyperbole, Bobby.

        Seriously though, it seems much better to me to have a few firm yet friendly soldiers out front to control road access and act as a buffer between the police and the public. The whole idea is that soldiers would be ironically LESS threatening and well-armed than the police are right now. Not to mention that they might command a little more respect as a third party.

        How do I know it works? I’ve been deputized twice to work with local law enforcement in instances not too dissimilar from this one.

      As a matter of fact, from several photos of NG deployed in the area, they don’t even seem to be carrying rifles, just handguns (and those are all holstered).

      1. avatar Luciferian says:

        Exactly. Who knows if they’re even loaded.

        Call your average soldier in from fort couch on state activation, put him in charge of government property in front of the public and the media and tell him to stand at an intersection controlling access and he’ll turn into the perfect gentleman. He’ll never draw his weapon on a citizen.

        Sure, he might let a few people through, but once the military gets involved even the media changes their tune and gets bored. The police can wait in back as a response force, and they have most of the strain of face to face relations with the public removed so they’re not going section 8 on civilians.

        Before any discipline by his superiors I want to know just who was hiding BEHIND the douchebag with the camera, it’s likely they set him up, provoked him (by threatening him/spitting/throwing something). Officers don’t have to take that shit from NO ONE! PERIOD!

        I’m a law-abiding citizen who has seen many so-called “protests” in NYC since the mid-1970’s, I know firsthand how these vermin (activists) work hand-in-hand with supposed “journalists” to portray police in a negative light. Most recently in NYC for tuition protests and OWS bowel movement, it’s all done to provoke law enforcement, the Lefties know the mayors won’t let cops respond appropriately. It’s time to take off the gloves, bring back the firehoses, dogs, and batons/nightsticks (the REAL ones with lead inside), sap gloves, blackjacks, and switch to REAL bullets not the rubber crap and beanbags..

          Let me put it this way. The moment police starts mowing down protesters and reporters with bullets for “portraying police in the negative light” or “agitation” or whatever else you fascist scum choose as an excuse, will be the moment this liberal will exercise his Second Amendment rights to the fullest extent possible (and for the purpose it was originally created for).

      Unapologetic American,

      Two questions:
      (1) What evidence do you have that people threw urine, excrement, and/or bottles of water, rocks, nails, urine, and/or excrement at this officer over the last several days?
      (2) How does throwing such items satisfy the criteria for legal use of lethal force?

      Notes:
      (a) Purposely pointing a firearm at someone, with or without a death threat, is lethal force.
      (b) The criteria for legal use of lethal force is that a reasonable person would be in fear of imminent rape, great bodily harm, or death.

      1. avatar Unapologetic American says:

        What evidence/proof or urine/feces? Early on authorities set up “chemical showers” for police on scene who had been “doused”. if you haven’t wandered into by accident or been an attendee of one of these Leftist “protests” (riots) you have NO idea of what the participants are capable of or the violent and provocative behavior they engage in regularly. If one hasn’t had the opportunity to see what occurs at these ralleis/protests they have absolutely NO idea of what goes on and is NOT shown by their sympathizers in the Liberal-dominated media who routinely minimize the violence while at the same time demonizing police.

        Since I live in the NY/NJ Metro-area and travel into NYC frequently I’ve had firsthand experience with “protests” ie. Amnesty, police shootings, tuition, GOP convention, OWS, and many more. The first one I saw was as a sophomore at Catholic high school in Jersey City (’77-’81), with 3 1/3 hrs free in the middle of the day one day a week I would head into Lower Manhattan and it’s where on occasion I watched intently as professors/teachers directed the actions of college/high school students.

        Let me give you an example. In one instance early 2009 (Jan?) I was returning to the #6 Subway/Lexington Ave line at 68th St. Hunter College, the entitled designer clothes wearing, sushi-eating, Starbucks drinking, trendy top-of-the line electronics carrying students were “protesting” tuition hikes across the city, they had seized the multistory administration offices, broken out the windows on the upper floors and were throwing paper and furniture down on the street and sidewalk. Having just had spinal injections earlier that morning I wasn’t moving too fast nor was I aware of the “activities” scheduled for that day city wide, if I had I would’ve rescheduled the procedure.

        Wearing a NATO woodland camo jacket and an NYPD 9/11 tribute hat I became a prime target of the “protestors”, a nasally, horn-rimmed glasses wearing, Long Island Jewess professor first instigated then orchestrated the attack upon me, she pointed me out to the crowd just like the last scene in “The Invasion of The Body Snatchers”. I was attacked, shoved, punched, spit upon, tripped, sprayed with a urine/feces concoction and again with bleach from spray bottles and dish detergent bottles then stalked through the crowd as I made my way to the subways entrance.

        I was asked repeatedly “who do YOU serve?”. As I approached the scene I had seen this bitch professor taking students aside and personally directing them, they then threw bricks pried off a building at the college’s windows (and they wonder why their tuition is high). An NYPD officer, the ONLY one on the scene, took refuge in his scooter, he raised his hands in futility as if to say “what do you want me to do?” when he saw what was happening to me though wouldn’t leave his vehicle either under orders from gun-grabber Bloom-BOIG or for fear of being attacked as he represented a “symbol of the system”.

        Three of the male students, the most profane, antagonistic, and violent, all wearing Che’ Guevera/Marxist-type shirts, one with a beret, the others with checkerboard Muslim scarves followed me down the platform after jumping the turnstile in the below ground station, again right in front of two female NYPD officers who did nothing. It was ONLY when I “stood them down” and offered to “give them a lesson in physics and electricity at the 3rd rail” that they backed off yelling for someone to “call the police” because they had been “threatened”. BTW the entire time the above was going on one young female and a male student each videotaped the incident from the initial encounter on the street down onto the platform and encouraged the attackers.

        Now at 6’3′ tall and just under 200lbs (I’m now 51 yrs old) even with the back injury and the spinal injections earlier that morning being a blue-collar worker and former bodybuilder I could’ve easily “handled” my attackers/harassers BUT subjecting oneself to the NYC “justice system” where White males are seen as “evil” and the fact that the perpetrators like in Ferguson would ALL lie to protect their own I figured discretion is the better part of valor but I sure wanted to kick some ass of which I am and was capable of doing quite well.

        I have NO sympathy for a ghetto thug, his illiterate community who don’t understand the legal system, race-hustlers, provocateurs, their sympathizers, Leftist agitators, anarchists, the biased Marxist media, and Liberals who engage in riots or violence.

          Nor do most of the folks you seem to oppose. But we are against insane militarized response, and tap-dancing on The Constitution to achieve law and order. Regardless of what anyone thinks, these are American citizens who have the right to assemble and protest until they get out of hand. Then the ‘out of hand’ is neutralized and they get to keep going. No matter how wrong their position may be.

      The last I checked no one was being forced into becoming a police officer, they chose that career. If this guy can’t handle an extremely stressful situation then he needs to remove himself from that situation or be removed. There is no excuse for his behavior.

      So are you saying that cops should be permitted to kill people for “talking shit” to them?

    2. avatar int19h says:

      Your posts are not being deleted, they show up just fine.

      Let me broaden the question a little bit. Are you a government employee, or a hired private contractor for the government, who is enforcing some laws or regulations, providing security, or is otherwise armed as part of the job? This includes police, FBI, DEA, NFA, TSA, any kind of SWAT team regardless of which agency it is attached to (even if it’s EPA or FDA) etc.

      1. avatar Unapologetic American says:

        No I’m not LE of any type. I’m a “law and order” Conservative, the fact is police have been hamstrung when dealing with this vermin for far too long, since the riots of the 1960’s. It’s one of the reasons I’m leaving NJ and heading south where people respect each other, there’s too much coddling of dysfunctional, illiterate, ghetto-dwelling welfare dependents, thugs, drug addicts/burglars, and violent criminals here in the Northeast.

        ^ int19h : is a friggin’ FOREIGNER!

        …..and with pals at Microsoft (anti-gun/pro-wetback) and “Likes” for John Leibowitz (Stewart) of the Daily Show, Bill Nye The Science Guy no wonder he’s here agitating. Click on his thumbnail check his FB page, see his name, I wonder whether he knows/knew the Boston Bombers (Tsarnev Bros)?.

        1. avatar int19h says:

          LOL, yes. I’m in your country “stealing” your job! And with 20+ guns to boot (legal, of course). What’cha gonna do about it? Write your congressman and whine about how the filthy foreigners don’t let you find a proper job and brainwash your kids the way God ordained it?

          You, on the other hand, judging by your rhetoric, are bona fide fascist. Let’s see: from your posts so far, you hate liberals, college professors, Marxists, Muslims, Blacks, Jews, Latinos… did I miss anything? And you call for these people to be violently suppressed, shot even.

          As for names, you truly are an American, seeing how you can’t figure the difference between a Russian name (mine), and a Chechen name (Tsarnayev). You might also not be aware of the fact that the relations Russians and Chechens have not exactly been cordial for the past 20 years or so.

          Heh. I was going to point out how obnoxious his comment at you is, or simply delete it, but you seem to have handled it pretty well. Play on.

  22. avatar Unapologetic American says:

    If the governor would allow police to “take off the gloves” this can be ended quickly. Bring back the firehoses, dogs, nightsticks, REAL ones with lead inside, sap gloves, blackjacks etc. Stop with rubber bullets and beanbags use REAL ones. You might say “Kent State” I say fine, the “protestors” reap what they sow.

  23. avatar Patrick Hayes says:

    From what the video shows removing, terminating and possibly charging the officer with assault would be in order. We CANNOT tolerate such actions. If he was one of my cops he would be gone. That out of control attitude is not acceptable in law enforcement.

    1. avatar JR_in_NC says:

      “That out of control attitude should not be acceptable in law enforcement.”

      FIFY.

      All too often, what should not be acceptable in LE is, in fact, accepted.

      Time will tell on this one.

  24. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    The cop is reported to be a St Ann patrol officer. Critical detail. Why? St Ann is a podunk municipality that straddles I70 area around STL airport. It is so small that a significant amount of revenue comes from issuing speeding tix to people going 5 mph over the speed limit. St Ann officers sometimes use a laser and spotter team sitting in a hotel room at one of the local dumpy hotels right off the fwy to pop drivers. They are rude and demeaning and that is their interaction w the public. this is good news b/c there is one less d!ckhead there to pull people over this week on their way to cabelas to buy a new toy

    1. avatar fuque says:

      Sounds as if St Ann could be the next hot spot if officer bozo has like minded clowns.

    2. avatar 16V says:

      Don’t worry, there’s a boatload more tiny little munis that have tiny police forces to generate revenue – and a place to keep the guys with dirty jackets, or who should be security guards, employed.

      Charlack, Pagedale, Bel-Ridge, Vinita Park, Breckenridge Hills, Beverly Hills (and it is nothing like Beverly Hills), Rock Hill, Pine Lawn, Velda City, Uplands Park, the list goes on and on.

    I love how we sit here and complain that the antis paint us all with a broad brush when a crazy happens and then we do the same with police across the country (see first half of responses to this article and all others) … Statistically, how many cops are on duty at any time, how many act like this or other assholes we’ve talked about? I am not a cop, but I would not want to live in a country where we had none. Maybe we should start thanking THEM for their service to this country and see if our polite attitude makes them respond in kind?

    1. We differ from antis and Liberals in general because we are able to criticize our own when we F up. We don’t follow a blind ideology regardless of the poor performance of a given policy. Crime fighting is a strong issue with gun owners and Conservatives but we are not going to allow that to trump liberty.

    2. avatar Michelle says:

      “Not being appreciated enough” isn’t an excuse for this behavior. Yeah, maybe if we just revered them more, they wouldn’t point full autos at us.

      That’s cool.

      Broad brush? Seems to me we respond to particular incidents.

  26. avatar VF77 says:

    Man, that is so wrong in so many ways. That dude should not be a cop. Probably shouldn’t even own a rifle. ….Unless he was willing to destroy what he was pointing at (unarmed protesters in this case, albeit agitating ones) – and he was also aware of this background (more unarmed protesters).

    There’s always one in a crowd. I don’t think this can paint all Cops as crazy nutjobs anymore than one crazy violent citizen paints all citizens as crazy violent nutjobs.

    But no excuse for that behavior. He should be off the force.

  27. avatar Dave says:

    The real question is not “What was he doing out there alone?”, it’s “Why is he on the force in the first place?”

  28. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    Another high point in police-serf relationships.

  29. avatar Unapologetic American says:

    With the replies to this piece it’s clear that the conspiracy theorists, anarchists, OWS/Anonymous-types, cop-haters, and closeted Liberals have taken over the website. Kudos to the skanky beeeatch Shannon Quims.

        Neither did one of the deputies in Wisconsin that confiscated a firearm from a licensed carrier seeking medical treatment. The deputy unloaded the firearm by pulling the trigger.
