Yea I mean these days people accept skinners, right Darn. Tell everyone what they did to you when you were at the pole. Maybe after they hear your storey they will know why you hate cops so much.

You know...20,000 police officers have been killed protecting the citizens of this country. I would be interested to know if you would ever put yourself on the line for the sake of others. Yes, if you would actually assault a police officer, you are scum.

Hi Carol,
I thank you for offering your input and your observations. I firmly believe that when a Mass State cop is driving at exactly 65 mph; especially in the center lane of the highway; that he is doing two things:
1) He is waiting to catch an impatient driver as he or she simply attempts to drive at the normal highway speed of 75 - 80 mph.
2) He is getting some pleasure from knowing that he is messing with the honest Taxpayers; as they attempt to drive on our overcrowded highways and get to work; to earn an honest living. You see; the Mass State cop IS ALREADY AT WORK; while most other travelers out on the highways are ATTEMPTING TO GET TO WORK. The cops seem to get great pleasure out of **** up people's commutes.
Certainly; the Mass State cop who is driving at exactly 65 mph out on the highway is up to something. We know damn well that these blowhards are typically driving at speeds of 85 to 95 mph out on our highways; as they tailgate everyone in their path. So, the Mass State cop who is driving at a sane speed out on our highways is not to be treated lightly.
Wow Darn I take a couple of days off and here you go again ranting and raving…. Maybe its time to readjust your meds. This is Massachusetts, not West Nuton, where everyone goes around tootin their own horn, doing whatever they please.

In one instance your are knocking the Fuzz for as you call it “speeding, driving recklessly, and endangering the lives of innocent civilians” in order to help a colleague who needs help. Then in the same instance you knock the State Po Po for driving the speed limit which is 65.

Darn you can’t have your cake and eat it to. I applaud the State Police Officer who is driving 65 on the highway, he is obeying the law. Darn do you know what “Speed Limit” means? It is the maximum speed at which the law makers and experts have deemed safe for that particular roadway. If someone is driving 75-80 on a crowded highway where the SPEED LIMIT is 65 because that is what everyone else is doing, THEY ARE BREAKING THE LAW. Just because someone is a “hardworking, honest, taxpayer” and late for work, doesn’t give them the right to drive recklessly and endanger my life! If they are late tough! Drive the speed limit, it takes me 2 hours to get to work each day because I choose to drive the speed limit and obey the law. Therefore, I don’t feel the least bit of sympathy for those who are trying to get to work driving 70-80 endangering my life. THEY SHOULD DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT, THERE IS A REASON THERE ARE SPEED LIMITS, SPEED KILLS! Unless someone has been specifically trained in defensive driving as well as driving at a high rate of speed ,with a way to warn others they should not be driving that fast. If you see a State Police Officer driving faster then the speed limit then call the local barracks and report them.

Darn I understand you sympathize with the speeders, and I agree it must be tough getting those pizzas to their delivery location on time, but being late does not give you or anyone else the right to speed. This one goes to the Po Po stick to delivering pizza Darn. Just because the Five-O give you a ticket and wouldn’t let you use the excuse “it has to be there in under a half hour” doesn’t mean you can come here and ramble on and on. Its starting to sound more and more like you are turning into illogical Kevin who likes to rant, has an ax to grind, and has nothing of substance to offer.

Speed doesn't kill people, people kill people. And I'd love to kill the people who do drive the speed limi, or below, and impose their schedule on me. They're in my way and if they can't drive then get the "F" off the road.

I know a highway engineer at the state and he says the roads are designed for much higher speeds, they have to be, but limits are imposed by the states. The roads have to be designed for higher rates of speed in case of emergencies and evacuations...

Regarding the slow drivers. They are usually just so cluesless about what is going on around them and inconsiderate of other peoples schedule. Either lead, follow or get out of the way! They are usually, DWA (Driving While Asain) DWW (A woman who is hormonally impaired) DWT (Drivine while talking or texting usually women) DWS (Driving while Stupid again usually women) SWD (Swerving while driving, woman or Asian) I could go on here!

Wow, Clancy, thanks for the eye opener regarding speeding! I really needed the education. And, you gave me a real dose of it. And, I think that I have a really great suggestion for stepping up to all those law breaking Speeders; endangering the public out on our highways.

I think that the public would be much better served if we discontinued the practice of paying the Mass State Police for dozing off in their cruisers; along with reading magazines, newspapers and using cell phones; as they do nothing at all for the public at all of those very lucrative Police Details. Why should we keep paying the police for sitting on their flabby fannies at police details and doing nothing whatsoever; when they should be addressing all those nasty; law breaking Speeders?

Again, if speeding is really the problem that you are making it out to be; then why have the police choosen to make a bundle of money sitting on their arses doing nothing about the problem? I just don't get it.

If you and I join forces, we can really address the problem of speeding, as well as bring some much needed focus to what the Mass State Police have decided to focus on: fattening thier wallets for doing nothing!

Thanks again for the info, Clancy, ol boy.

Sincerly,

Darn

It is beyond obvious that he despises authority. His only posts involve an opinion of police misconduct no matter what the circumstances. This would lead one to believe he has had many run ins with the law or is a venting Ex Convict. Whatever it is he clearly has a problem with cops, both good and bad!

If any of these cops swung on me I would break their necks! It is way past due time that we start fighting these SCUM cops! They hide behind their badge, they are worse than criminals, they beat their wives!
The public is getting steamed! These cops should all lose their fucking jobs!! Why should they be allowed to openly assault who they want when they want! If a cop put their finger on me I will break it off! These guys are criminal THUGS who hide behind their badges!!!! They took justice out in the street by jumping and punching this guy repeatedly! They need to let this guy go free!!
How dare u justify this pigs behavior! These cops are no better than a criminal thug who beats elderly women!

This is the only thing they understand, so make it very clear to them, drive at me, and i will shoot you.
either way,great job State Polce
too bad the guy didnt crawl back to his car if he had a gun and put a few in the foreheads of those thug cops!!
When r u going to wake up and smell the coffee? The government is a corrupt mob! They run gambling enterprises and they get a dollar from every case of beer sold!
Then u have the police "who give SERVICE"; someone please explain this "service thing to me? 8 stateys beating one guy? Let me ask you cop lover, if u were any further up their shute you wouldnt have to explain to me why you had poop on the top of your sneaker! If 8 guys beat one guy, what type of time would he get? If you got caught beating a guy with a club while he was handcuffed to a pole, what type of time would your lovers give you?
These cops broke the law! They assaulted this guy! You are wrong, their are many witnesses to this scene!
Get a clue, cops are on the take! Where have u been?? u need to go out more often. Nobody trust cops! You would have more respect if you asked a gangster for assistance than a modern day cop!

When did you work at the FPD? And you would know what goes on in Walpole how? What’s a Skinner? Its probably some sort of code name for a convicted felon. Your right though a cop whose dirty is no good and should be fired. The only things in my opinion then a dirty cop is a convicted felon. They will be liars, cheats, and thieves for their entire lives, there is no such thing as an ex felon. Once a felon always a felon they cant even be trusted as baggers at Market Basket

Why can't I just be an honest Taxpayer; who is sick and tired of seeing the cops answering to no one but themselves and their unions? How come THAT possibility never crosses your mind?

Exactly! Now why doesn't the Mayor fire the entire FPD? Let them collect for the 99 weeks! This entire police force is inept as I agree that all "grocery store baggers" are more honest then the FPD!
Thank you for that analogy! Have an open mind for a momoent; pull your head out of the bagded ones poop shoot! I have listened to the stories of baggers chasing purse stealers and tackling them in the parking lot more than once! You may be on to something here! We could switch all the FPD with the grocery baggers at Market Basket!
We would have an obvious notice of difference in ineptness! Our current grocery baggers are curtious to all its customers. The FPD wouldn't allow an elderly pedestrian to cross in front of them as they take that last turn before the police station! It is comical, we should put a camara at this corner! These guys are in a rush to sit down in a different seat! Or it is the end of the shift and they woke up late in their hiding spot, one being in JRs parking lot!

This guy will face criminal charges for his breaking of the law! This does not make it legal for 8 guys to beat 1 guy down!! Where is your common sense thinking?
It is double jeopardy to charge this guy; he took a serious physical beat down by 8 state troopers!
If you state that this is ok; then you would back a law that states if a state trooper is caught breaking the law then 8 citizens could brutaly beat him before he is cuffed and charged.
One incident where a state trooper had s. ex with a female driver or the state trooper was going to falsely charge her of offenses. In this case the law should read that the eight of us get to use hockey sticks on beating hi m before he was cuffed and charged???

I didn't see the incident so I can't comment on whether this drug dealing dirtbag tried resisting arrest or not. If he did, he deserved to be subdued by LEO. If not, there should be an investigation I'm sure if there were a half dozen cruisers at the scene there must be some video for the investigation.
