I accidentally “cut off” a cop (actually I had a protected left turn and he was pulling out of a Harris Teeter parking lot turning right so I’m not exactly sure I was at fault but whatever). I immediately turned into an apartment complex, decided to NOT block the entrance like an ass and so took the first right into visitor parking (instead of parking in someone’s assigned spot, as well).

The cop yelled at me for five minutes straight about how I cut him off and then at why I didn’t immediately pull over. I literally ended up a couple hundred yards from when he signaled me and was doing no more than 15 mph as I was - again - in a parking lot (with speed bumps to boot).

I think it’s the only time I’ve been pulled over and not ticketed but he literally had nothing to ticket me I guess so he just wanted to bitch me out or something. Probably just having a bad day tho

One of the officers admitted later that they knew why Nazario had pulled into the BP—it happened all the time, and was a maneuver often used by people of color, according to the lawsuit.

It's insane how these meatheaded murder goons think someone MAYBE getting away (and that obviously is a huge horsefeathering "if" given what we're talking about here) is some kind of immediate and gigantic threat to them and everyone else in the area.

It's horsefeathering 2021; you have all of someone's info in, like, 5 minutes. Unless the warrants showed the dude was some kind of on the lam super villain, don't immediately escalate the situation with gun fire or assaults or high speed chases.

So the officer wasn’t racist, just completely incompetent? Well that should make citizens everywhere feel much better.

Horrifying incompetence for sure. A loaded .40 cal Glock is going to be literally 4 times heavier than a taser which is only 8 ounces. Also the safeties are in entirely different spots.

Also the handgun is usually on the dominant arm side while the tazer the non dominant side.

I don’t get it. The “taser” is in her hands for a decent amount of time and she doesn’t notice the difference in grip, weight, etc.

The more I go over the details in my head the more I'm convinced she knew EXACTLY what she was doing and was actively working in the moment to give herself an alibi since she knew her body camera was on. There is no way someone with her experience thought she had a taser in her hands. NONE!

I mean, I kinda get it, but only from the standpoint that way too many cops are just abjectly too incompetent to have the job we're entrusting them with.

She was a cop for something like 28 years. I mean, I guess she could have managed to stay employed for that long while being completely incompetent but the excuse doesn't pass the smell test here.

Dude, I have never had a job where there WEREN'T insanely, explicitly incompetent people who had held onto their jobs, and were rising up the ranks for years or even decades. horsefeathers, on any given day I'm probably one of them.

I'm not saying you're wrong that it could have been malicious...I'm just saying that it's also incredibly likely that a cop is simply terrible at their job, regardless of their tenure.

It's a real "why not both?" situation that makes me want to jump off of a building.
