THE CURRENT STATE OF AMERICA: Don't Hit the Bad Guys

In New York City, a dude tries to steal a bike and jumps a cop and the crowd screams at copper trying to free his partner.

 

Here's the New York Post with the play-by-play:
[J]ust before 9 a.m. on Friday morning [a] teen, Alfred Burns, tried to steal a bicycle from in front of a store at 225th Street and Broadway, police told The Post.

The bike’s owner caught Burns, 16, in the act, and flagged down cops, according to police.

Once the cops approached, Burns began to struggle, pushing one of them to the ground — and putting his hand over the downed officer’s neck, police sources said.

  1. The copper looks like the only thing he gained from his 'roids is the rage.

  2. Seems like a lot of trouble for 2 male cops to apprehend someone who isn’t burly.

    1. Not the bike owner? I swear, I get the disapproval of police (an-cap myself). But how else, even in a private property society, are we supposed to apprehend resistant criminals? Do you forget Burns stole something then fought when he was stopped?

    2. Oh wow I read it wrong I thought Burns was the kid who owned the bike. I read is as the bike's owner, Burns

    3. Happens. I make at least 20 face-palmable goofs per day. It's amazing I'm still married and alive. :)

  4. I wonder if they would be screaming at private police for attempting to arrest the criminal in the same situation. My guess is yes, given the shrieks of depravity coming from the crowd. That situation wasn't a "bad cop" situation; force was authorized (even in the NAP sense).
