Fat Cop

I was at the Fiesta last night and saw a fat cop grab a guy and slam him to the ground. Then I saw another guy try and defend the guy and was arrested. The fat cop was using foul language and was very unprofessional. He should be fired for how he acted. I can't believe how this cop will get away with police brutality and language that should not be tolerated by the Chief.

You did not mention everything that led up to that. Not to mention, Midlothian police are generally fit. If they guy was drunk and making trouble he got what he desereved.

There are a few bad seeds in the department, but the majority are good guys. The chief either does not care or cannot do anything about it. What did the guy do, stumble a bit or call him a fat a$$? Did they both get arrested? If the guy the got thrown to the ground was not, then why would he do that? It seems whenever there is something like this that goes on, they get some cops that do not want to be there, and have short fuses and lack of respect for anybody, even children. This is why many want to see a new chief take over. in fact its over two to one citizens of Midlothian would like to see a change.

Was it Fitzgerald?? That guy is a nuisance to this whole town. He gets his kicks by harrassing people that he doesn't like. What a jerk. And he is in fact FAT!!! They should get rid of him. As for the rest of the police department, they are fine in my book. We need to just get rid of Fitzgerald!

There was a very pudgy cop there on Thursday, and this little old grandma I was talking to kept calling him fat and questioning how he could be on the force at his size. He was inches shorter than I am and at least 200 lbs. I'd guess 5'4" maybe. I definitely wondered myself how he passes the physical, but since I don't work for the PD there's a lot I'm sure I don't know.

And for that times sq thing, that was a little shady. Looked at first like the cop just put his arms out to deflect, but on slow mo it definitely looked a bit more aggressive.

Surprised he did not slam the old broad, I could just imagine the old lady saying "your fat!, my husband was fat, he is dead now", like the scene from the old John Candy movie "Going Berserk". Had to be funny as heII! I would not doubt the guy was laughing at that, and that earned him the wrath of this guy. In this day and age, someone had to have caught that on a phone or something, it sure would be great to watch.

You're right. He's not. He's a nice guy. There is a guy that is older than him and heavier. which I suspect that is who is being referred to. My one and only bad experience with MDP was with that guy (not Fitzgerald).

So what? Someone was thrown to the ground due to a situation that person created. If that person was minding their business and conducting themselves properly this would not have happened.

Do you watch soap operas and cry too?

Awww...foul language.

Quit being a smart ass?

I am going to kick some butt.

Bite me.

That is the Pres and VP in public.

Deal with the drunks, druggies much less all the other sad sides of the human condition on a daily basis.

I never said that. I just agree that a cop isn't going to throw some random person to the ground and arrest them for no reason. If this guy was walking around, not causing trouble and the cop did it, then he's in the wrong.*shrugging*

The Fiesta has been held for many, many years. It brings together people who have not seen each other, sometimes many, many years. It is the seed of bringing together community and the people in the area in friendship, love and hope.

In the USA, people have freedom. Freedom, by its definition, provides choice. This individual made a decision. It was not forced upon them. You do not hold this person responsible for their own actions. The person created the situation on their own recognizance. It is a matter of personal responsibility.

There are many people, like you, where the blame is placed upon another person or party. That is the seed you plant and the plant you grow. The same can be said of reverends of other affiliations that sell hate and division, Well known people are the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Jesse Jackson Sr. and the Minister Farrakhan.

It is apparent you prefer to grow the seeds of division and hate handed out by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Jesse Jackson and the Minister Farrakhan and place blame on other people for their current situation.

Go get 'em "Hurt". Show those blacks who is boss. I'm sorry, but if you're on of "those people" then you deserve to get thrown into the ground for showing up at the fiesta. I mean don't these people have their own carnivals in thier own towns.

I am not trying to show "those people", or of any race color or creed. I do not want to plant the sends of hate and ignorance that the "yoyo" poster is.

I work with and have friendships of many people of different races and creed. Hech, where would rock and roll me without Chuck Berry? I love his music.

I am just plain sick and tired of the constant blaming of someone else for another persons situation or condition. The world we all live in is not perfect.Some people are truly "wronged" during a business transaction and/or event.

We can have our fiesta, no problem. But sometimes we don't think we have to respect people. Playing loud music after 11:00 pm. it's no nice. No sleeping well. It's a Church and they have no love for others. “All things, therefore, that YOU want men to do to YOU, YOU also must likewise do to them; this, in fact, is what the Law and the Prophets mean.
(Matthew 7:12).“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” He said to him:“‘You must love your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. The second, like it, is this,‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments the whole Law hangs, and the Prophets.”
(Matthew 22:36-40)
