I am sure there is another side to the story and by the looks of those grown children and their Dad I am sure they just did not welcome the Police with open arms.

looks like both sides got carried away in the moment, but your not gonna win a fight with the cops, they will just arrest everone, like they did here.
now if the sons just moved when asked..........

I'd take issue with a bridgeport PIG telling me to get off the sidewalk in front of my house, especially if he did it in the wrong way. From what I've seen firsthand of bridgeport PIGS, there's an excellent chance this went down like the family is saying.

Wonder if the PIGS erased the dashcam tape yet.

BTW, I saw a bridgeport PIG run a red light and almost hit an elderly driver. She hit the horn and narrowly avoided a collision. The bridgeport PIG gave her the finger. And drove away slowly- he wasn't even going to a call.

the cops here can be difficult at times. i have found they can be wrong, but it's easier not to argue with them, like i said you're not gonna win with them.
i've seen them put on the emergency lights to drive through traffic and shut them off once they get by. fought with them when i was young.......not gonna win.

It's just bad behavior all the way around. The police abuse their so-called power; the civilians just want to be left alone and that creates a conflict. And nobody really wins. The cops get a bad rep, the civvies get a bad rep and a bad rap. Lose-lose.

Yeah don't get me wrong I AM in favor of law and order, but I have seen bridgeport cops do soooo many bad things. Surely there are good cops among them, but too few. I once called in a really bad car accident in Bridgeport and the dispatcher cussed me out. Seems she was irritated because someone else had already called it in. Which is hard to believe because I called it seconds after it happened. I'm mad at myself for not finding out who that imbecile was and sending a few registered letters around. It's just that I was stunned by such an utterly ignorant response.

By the way- the car accident was on Atlantic Street, exactly where they shot this fine citizen who was just trying to enjoy a little PCP. Interesting coincidence.
