He is a punk

Elizabethtown, KY

#1 Dec 12, 2012
That worthless punk in the dorm room is guilty as hell. He threw the liquor out the window and he knew he did it. If he hadn't he could have invited the entire campus in the room with no problem. Can you say prick? Reinstate the cop.

Maybe the officer could have handled it in a better way, but the student is at fault. The video shows the student getting an attitude from the start. The student showed no respect for authority. Things are getting worse in our nation. I am all for personal rights, but things like this have only made matters worse. The student lives in a dorm. Any dorm should be allowed to be searched. I also feel that the officials should do more to keep booze and drugs out of dorm rooms. The athletes are drug tested so the students should be too. Someone needs to teach that boy some respect! Too bad the liquor that was thrown out the window wasn't caught on tape!

Graham Gaddis is a poor excuse for a human being. Yes the cop did shove him, and handle the situation poorly. He should be reprimanded. However this child who set up the web camera needs to be reprimanded as well. His arrogance and disrepect and complete lack of reguard for authority needs to be addressed. He is just trashy.

You'd feel different if the cop was pushing his way in your home.

What are the names of the cops involved? Thompson is the name of the guy who got fired, but who is the other cop wearing the glasses?

I hope Thompson sues and wins millions! I hope Gaddis's parents beat him black and blue and quit giving him any money!! I hope he is kicked out of UK and finds himself lying in a puddle of urine about to be molested. Then maybe he will learn the proper respect of officers!!
If I had a child at UK they would be gone over this!! UK has castrated the police force. The campus will not be safe after this!!
Not to mention hey kids put booze in your room we don't care. With this kid it was probably urine falling from his window.
His mother and father should be kicked in the teeth!!
Anyone who hires this kid should be fired!!
oh no

His response to the officer being fired was that he was excited about it, that he egged them on and they took the bait.
The officers had every right to enter the room and the kid clearly says "Go ahead. Open the fridge." which is consent.
The controversy is over physical contact. If I can't see your hands and you're threatening me, I'm going to physically subdue you.
Someone suggests what the parents should do about this.
I suspect it's what the parents haven't done about this in the past that made this kid what he is now.

I agree, but these officers by UK law can enter any dorm at any time (unlike a private home). The kid orchestrated the entire ordeal so he could video it and I sincerely hope his attitude backfires on him. If it doesn't now, it will later in his life - guaranteed.

See, the cops aren't doing their job. They can come in but searching, physical force ect. Is forbidden by UK policy. If students have to follow a set of rules, so should the employees. She we pay money to be there....

This kid's a rockstar. UK police are punks and losers. They are just pissed because they can't cut it on a real police force where they actually have to deal with grown adults. This douche bag got exactly what he and the rest of hos douche bag co-workers deserve. While the kid may have egged the officers on and been rude as hell, it's the officers job, not only as campus police but as an adult, to act with greater restraint and professionalism. Good Riddance PIG, may your life continue to blow.

I am amazed at how many people are willing to allow just anyone in their home. badge or no badge, if you want in my home or car. you better have a warrant.

It's not about having anything to hide. It's about cops acting like stormtroopers. Invasion of privacy. The cop acted like a bully whether or not the kid egged it on.
