Wow…another reason added to the long list of reasons not to visit SF. Friggin hippies man…I really don’t know how anyone puts up with them. That cop kept his cool…very professional, especially considering the circumstances.
Seriously, prick kids, prick bystanders, the guy has a tough enough job as it is, he is being called to check the scene. Idiots, I thought the cop stayed pretty calm about this, he could have called for backup, but he didnt. He knew that would inflame the situation further.
so, call a guy a dick, get threatened to have your arm broken, get handcuffed, have your personal property taken away, get kicked into a car that will take you to jail. and all he did was call him a dick. yeah, that’s not overreacting to an immature punk’s statement.
They were all breaking the law in the first place, he could have arrested them all but he was being a nice guy. And that asshole kid didn’t just call him a dick, it was “fucking dick”. He was right to take his skateboard away, it’s his job. I’m sure those bystanders were the ones who called it in so they must have had a problem with those kids anyway. This is why I can’t be a cop, I wanted to beat the shit out of that kid just watching it.
