there is no controversy

 

only the one that sites are trying to summon up by cloning the same take over and over

If there's no controversy, we can't whine.

Ambler and I are working together to develop a script for a Footloose rebootquel where - TWIST! - it's a retrograde conservative punk that has to come in and teach students how to loosen up on a liberal arts campus that has banned dancing on the basis that grabbing someone and forcing them to coordinate their body movements to your swaying is tantamount to rape.

Yes that would be awful and yet I had that same thought the other day. Of course my main character wouldn't be conservative, he would just be really into the 80's.

A Salt Lake City police officer is suspended (but still on active duty - I'm not sure how that works) after arresting a nurse who rightfully wouldn't let him draw blood from an unconscious patient:

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/09/01/this-is-crazy-sobs-utah-hospital-nurse-as-cop-roughs-her-up-arrests-her-for-doing-her-job/

 

Quote:

By all accounts, the head nurse at the University of Utah Hospital's burn unit was professional and restrained when she told a Salt Lake City police detective he wasn't allowed to draw blood from a badly injured patient.

 

The detective didn't have a warrant, first off. And the patient wasn't conscious, so he couldn't give consent. Without that, the detective was barred from collecting blood samples — not just by hospital policy, but by basic constitutional law.

 

Still, Detective Jeff Payne insisted that he be let in to take the blood, saying the nurse would be arrested and charged if she refused.

 

Nurse Alex Wubbels politely stood her ground. She got her supervisor on the phone so Payne could hear the decision loud and clear. "Sir," said the supervisor, "you're making a huge mistake because you're threatening a nurse."

 

Payne snapped. He seized hold of the nurse, shoved her out of the building and cuffed her hands behind her back. A bewildered Wubbels screamed "help me" and "you're assaulting me" as the detective forced her into an unmarked car and accused her of interfering with an investigation.

 

The explosive July 26 encounter was captured on officers' body cameras and is now the subject of an internal investigation by the police department, as the Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday. The videos were released by the Tribune, the Deseret News and other local media.

 

On top of that, Wubbels was right. The U.S. Supreme Court has explicitly ruled that blood can only be drawn from drivers for probable cause, with a warrant.

 

Wubbels, who was not criminally charged, played the footage at a news conference Thursday with her attorney. They called on police to rethink their treatment of hospital workers and said they had not ruled out legal action.

 

"I just feel betrayed, I feel angry, I feel a lot of things," Wubbels said. "And I'm still confused."

 

Salt Lake police spokesman Sgt. Brandon Shearer told local media that Payne had been suspended from the department's blood draw unit but remained on active duty. Shearer said Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown had seen the video and called it "very alarming," according to the Deseret News.

 

Here's the video:

I think the last Paragraph of the article basically says he was suspended from the department that collects blood samples and probably moved to another department. This bit of info is poorly written in the article and therefore easy to overlook. It would not surprise me if the officer's superiors want him kept away from the public eye, but also don't want to get people more angry if they use tax dollars to suspend him with pay, so I suspect they moved him to a place inside the department where he'll be earning his paycheck by doing a lot of filing.

Christopher "The Crying Nazi" Cantwell's lawyer calls him a "shock jock," compares him to Jackie Mason - http://www.thedailybeast.com/crying-nazi-christopher-cantwells-lawyer-says-hes-just-kidding-about-killing-jews 

I now want to go to my area open mic and perform as Nazi Jackie Mason. Also, this gem:

 

Quote:
Cantwell's attorney is Elmer Woodard, who appeared in court wearing an early-1800s-style red waistcoat with gold buttons, bowtie, white muttonchop whiskers, black velcro shoes, and a a 1910s-style straw boater hat. Cantwell said Woodard was his fourth choice for legal counsel after three other lawyers declined to take his case. (Woodard previously attempted to defend a client accused of sexual assault by a 15-year-old girl by claiming that the man’s sleepwalking caused him to rape her.)

Oh, and:

 

Quote:

Woodard then offered what he said was a quote by comedian Jackie Mason, saying that “take my wife, please"” was obviously not intended as a literal desire to kill or abandon a woman (the quote is actually from Henny Youngman). He compared Cantwell’s hate-filled monologues against Jews, blacks, Muslims, and other minorities on his podcasts to Mason.

T'know, I see stories about certain people who are licensed to practice law and find myself wondering: How hard can law school and the bar exam be if these people are getting through?

Several reasons: 

1. They took the bar decades ago, when they weren't crazy. 

2. In a very few number of states, you don't need to go to law school to take the bar. 

 

3. The bar is largely rote memorization and analysis of problems, which you can be crazy for if you know how to take it. 


4. The "toughness" of the bar exam - which is always pretty tough - depends on the state. California is the toughest, then NY/NJ. Louisiana is particularly tough if you don't go to law school in that state because the law there is based around the French, rather than the British, system. 

5. Character and fitness portion, which is a portion of the application to practice law, does not as of yet account for "saying stupid shit and dressing like a fool." 

6. It's very, very hard to be disbarred once you actually become a lawyer.

What's really telling is that if you scan Twitter, there are virtually zero negative comments from Conservative assholes defending the cop for "doing his job". But nope, race is a never a factor in how people view police brutality, no, not at all...

Ha I learned about this incident from Michael Savage who ranted that the cop is a "pig" and a "nazi". Guess you never know...

post #7482 of 7710

I glanced at some comments for that video of the nurse being arrested for not allowing the cop to take a blood sample from an unconscious person.

 

of course I see one of them being a variation of "look, obviously we didn't see all of the interaction in the video..."

post #7483 of 7710
That's the unconscious knee-jerk of pro-cop people. No matter how ridiculous and inhumane the behaviour onscreen, there is always something offscreen that can justify it. Non-compliance isn't disagreement, it's naked threat.
post #7484 of 7710

Yeah, absolutely. I remember a few years ago a protestor was killed over here, essentially a drunk guy with a heart condition who mocked the riot police and waddled away. One of the officers came up behind him and essentially body slammed him into the pavement (this guy who was walking away and had done little more than shout abuse at best). He dies.

 

One of my partners friends, wife of a cop (who was there at the protest), justified it saying "He wasn't following orders, he was disrespecting the police."

 

He was a fat drunk old guy ranting at someone in full riot gear who then outright murdered him. Fuck that noise.

post #7485 of 7710
This is what people now EXPECT of the police. When I talk to cops and cop-adjacent people I know they see no issue with "controlling the situation" in every interaction they have. They also see no problem with all cops working to rule all the time, which is essentially what they're doing anyway.
post #7486 of 7710

The Utah nurse story is actually worse than the video shows - https://twitter.com/obarcala/status/903986410352513024

 

The cop was trying to get the victim's blood in order to tamper with evidence in an attempt to head off a civil suit resulting from an illegal chase instigated by the police. Oh, and the victim was an Idaho police officer. Here's his agency thanking the nurse - https://twitter.com/sheldongilbert/status/903776188048576512

Derailed there with historical news a little, but for reference here's the video:

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18900484

 

Obviously attached to the story of 'Police Office Found Not Guilty of Manslaughter' and all that. In all honesty, the cardiac arrest happens later, direct causation was hard to prove and so on, blah blah blah... but it's blatantly obvious the man walking away from the officers with his hands in his pockets didn't really need to be thrown face down to the ground by the armoured bully boy.

 

Anyway, apologies, back to how police have been terrible THIS week, not just forever.

Cleveland's police union is so mad at the National Anthem protest of various Browns players that it has decided to... protest the National Anthem as well:

 

http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/09/cleveland_police_union_will_no.html

 

Quote:

Cleveland's police union will not be holding the American flag for a pregame ceremony for the Brown's first game Sept. 10, Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association President Steve Loomis said late Friday.

 

Union members had planned on participating in the flag ceremony for the first game on Sept. 10 until some Browns players kneeled during the National Anthem before a preseason game, Loomis said in an interview with cleveland.com.

 

The players not standing for the national anthem is offensive because of the sacrifices that people make that allows these guys to enjoy the success that they have, Loomis said. While they're benefiting from protection of the flag they are kneeling in disrespect of it, he said.

 

The Browns management and ownership condoned this disrespectful activity of their employees, Loomis said.

 

"It's just ignorant for someone to do that," he said. "It just defies logic to me. The fact that management was aware of what they planned on doing, that's as offensive as it can get."
