Richardson gunning for cop-cowardice record, tazes 14 year old girl
wants to see cops get hurt, I think that's a given. But cops sign on to a
job to protect and serve and that can be dangerous -- taking risks is just part
of the job.
The problem with today's
crop of cops is that they're cowards and they are not about to put
themselves in harm's way, even if it means attacking a child to keep
themselves out of danger. There is no better example of this
cop-cowardice problem than this story from Monterey, CA. LAT
When a 14-yo and a 16-yo
girl got in a fight at the Monterey County Fair, cops Kristofer Richardson
and Wayland Kopp weren't capable of manning up sufficiently to handle the
situation. Like how dangerous are two unarmed little girls? So
to protect himself from grave danger, Richardson pulled a tazer and
blasted the 14 yo.
Brave man, there.
It would be interesting to
know whether Monterey's cops, like so many in the
US, are given free trips
to Israel for training in apartheid crowd-control techniques. If you've ever seen videos of Israeli
cops blowing away unarmed kids, you'll understand why I
But even though I know
nothing about Richardson, I would be willing to bet a large sum of money
that at least two out of three of the following statements apply to him:
1. He's bald.
2. He's got a beer belly.
3. He doesn't have a clue what the term "excessive force"
And the reason I say it is
that I'm thinking of a few other famous coward-cops in California that fit
the bill. Daniel L. Andrew, the CHP brute who
beat the piss out of great-grandmother Marlene Pinnock in LA
last June, for instance.
And who could forget that
donkey's turd and ex-Marine John
Pike who gave a dozen unresisting, peaceful, seated protestors a
face full of mace at UC Davis in 2012 and then collected $38,000
compensation because the whole thing was so stressful, poor baby.
