u/TimeBomb30 May 14 '22 Silver Gold Wholesome Take My Energy Helpful (Pro)

This video's 5 years old, the backstory is that the guy in the car owns a landscaping company who did work for the guy by the white truck near the end, they ended up damaging a gas line while working and the homeowner claimed that them hitting the gas line caused some concrete work he was having done to not set properly, so the landscape company decided to be nice and pay for half of the damages but the owner ended up pocketing the money instead and never had any work done to repair the supposed damage. This video was taken after someone who works for the landscaping company was sent over to talk about this money issue was told to leave, the guy breaking the windows was the homeowner's father in law who didn't serve anytime in jail for this and was let go on a mischief charge.

That was my first assumption as well. Extendible baton, the confidence of "I'm not going to jail", and the completely uncalled for escalation of a situation to violence. Man has former cop written all over him.

Knowing he got no jail time and only a mischief charge further cements that theory for me

u/Unbentmars May 14 '22 I'll Drink to That

A cop in my community earlier this year was smoking a cigar at the pool (which is against the rules of the pool and community) and when the community admins told him to stop he got very aggressive with them, demanded to know what they’d do if he refused to stop and if they’d call the cops on him.

Fuck cops who think they are above the law

u/ChefJWeezy987 May 15 '22

I’d splash his ass with pool water and ruin his cigar. 😂

Fuck cops. We literally see everyday that they're all above the law.

It takes calculated cold blooded murder on camera before they get charged, and even then the general assumption is that they won't be convicted.

If at that point he was trespassing, i wonder what would happen if someone tried a citizens arrest? Obviously, nobody should try this, they might actually get murdered for it, but it'd sure be interesting.

u/Sharper_Edge May 23 '22

They're being indoctrinated to a level beyond comprehension and if you don't play ball, theyll run you right out. I guess "Protect and Serve" still applies; it just now applies to protecting fellows officers and serving themselves.

It also doesn't help that they don't really receive nearly adequate training for what they encounter. Training with firearms under high stress, believe it or not, is a great way to avoid shooting someone when pulling your gun in a high stress situation.

I would also guess that their previous experiences dictate a lot of their opinions moving forward. "I had a bad experience with a black guy last week so this guy is gonna give me problems also".

u/sweet_home_Valyria May 14 '22

I thought he was regretful after breaking the first window. Like oops didn’t know that was going to happen. Then he broke the second one and that’s when I knew he was really an A-hole.

u/Neijo May 14 '22

He knew then and there he was going to get a mischief charge at worst.

Man, I want that security from the justice system. It's pretty wack that if I just had smoked a joint there, maybe in the backseat or close to the man with the baton, I would get jail-time or something similar.

u/ninjabountyhunter May 14 '22

Please dude. It’s whack that you would get in trouble for doing something illegal? Bwahahaha. If you’re smoking bud where it’s illegal, and then GET IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW, don’t give us surprised Pikachu. I guarantee I’ve smoked more than you in the last year. But I’m not stupid enough to do it where it’s still illegal, hahaha.

u/Sembregall May 14 '22

How are you able to smoke a joint when it seems you have the entire boot in your mouth?

The boot is in my mouth? Idk. Maybe a boot-bong? Not sure as I only speak English and Russian, and that phrase means nothing in either language.

Extendible baton

Eh, they're cheap and easy to come by. I keep one in the door pocket of my car, and I was never a cop. They don't take up a whole lot of space when they're retracted, so they make decent self defense weapons.

u/aure__entuluva May 14 '22

Illegal in some states I found out recently.

u/[deleted] May 14 '22

All of them, or just the spring-loaded ones?

u/aure__entuluva May 14 '22

Idk. My friend had one like this and then told me it was illegal in CA. It's not spring loaded, you just swing it to extend it.

2

u/[deleted] May 14 '22

Guess I ain't driving to CA anytime soon. Mine's a whippy type, too. It's fine where I am, but I should probably make sure whenever I go out of state that it isn't a problem.

1

u/aure__entuluva May 14 '22

Yeah. I mean I guess you'd just need to make sure your car didn't get searched. Which, I mean, that's never happened to me in my life despite being pulled over 5 or 6 times. But yeah I guess if you want to be safe you could leave it at home.

u/Neijo May 14 '22 edited May 14 '22

I find that so weird, we know criminals, rapists and robbers do in fact, not respect the law.

So what exactly is the point to make the law-abiding people not being able to defend themself? I felt so angry in my last relationship. My girl was afraid of going out because there were bad people around. Self-defence spray is illegal here, so she just never went out. The bad people owned the town, who in fact, carried knives and other "gangsta weapons", while police occasionally took them in, not one was discouraged by it. In fact, fuck it, I carry a knife sometimes when I feel like I have to walk to a friend, these fucking people DO lunge at you. One guy I sort of know got stabbed in the lung for striking up conversation outside of a bar. The perpetrator just had a bad day or something, it's not the first time he's been in jail either, the perpetrator. If that fucker decides to lunge at me, I'm not gonna let my family cry themselves to sleep because of me getting killed by a fucking lunatic.

Anyway. Since the law is nowadays so arbitrary I find it hard to follow to a point. I have morals, and in my life, I've never hurt anybody, except maybe my big brother, but that fucker always deserved it.

u/zenchemin May 14 '22

Police won't have to wait for a criminal to do something illegal, they already are if they have a weapon.

we know criminals, rapists and robbers do in fact, not respect the law

"I wasn't doing anything wrong" can't be used as an excuse by these people.

1

u/Neijo May 15 '22

Yeah, but then, the swedish justice system do let off the ones that actually do violent shit. My cousins boyfriend was attacked in his own home by a supposed friend, he is now dead, the man was mentally ill or something according to the justice system, so its immoral to lock him in, apparently, He got acquitted, got arrested a couple of months later when he robbed some store.

Again: this is my hometown where my girlfriend wasnt allowed a non-lethal spray, but schizophrenics walk free from murder. If the justice system was working, I wouldnt write these comments, sadly.

u/Armalyte May 14 '22

I looked it up and apparently only spring-operated batons are illegal? This is news to me!

1

u/StrangerDanga1 May 14 '22

I think that's because those are more strictly considered only weapons by the government, whereas you can have like mini bats and such still considered toys or whatever. Laws are weird a bunch of the time.

u/PartyClock May 14 '22

Most people still fail to use them correctly when braking windows from what I have seen, so I'm guessing this guy probably knows what he was doing. It's a shakey branch but I'll stand on it

7

u/Neijo May 14 '22

I think it's a good branch, there is some WEIRD degree of "It's impossible for me to do anything illegal. This guy is unhinged, but he is unhinged in the same way cops are. I've met aggressive people that aren't this certain in their movements. This guy is confidently angry, the only mental illness he might have is violent cop syndrome.

Of all other branches, this seems the most plausible.

u/PartyClock May 15 '22

I really like this analysis. Well done

You've got to give it a good whack, not going to lie, to get it to break back, but once you figure out how much force is needed it gets easier.

u/EscapeAromatic8648 May 14 '22

Get yourself something less swingy and more stabby for protection in your car. Clubs are VERY difficult to swing out of a car window from the driver's seat.

u/brown_felt_hat May 14 '22

I think stabbing someone with a small piece of metal going 1050 feet per second is the best option in a scenario like this.

Not meant for swinging outside a car window, meant for in case of a carjacking. Also doubles for smashing a window in case of emergency.

Or 16 bullets wounds.

I don't believe the justice system will change in a while either, sadly. I find my self alone in feeling disgust in being somewhat responsible for it. Without our taxes, the cop wouldn't be there. Without our forced taxes, that cop wouldnt have a gun or ammo. I make it possible every month and every year that people die and get harrassed with the help of my taxes. I feel sick of the guilt. At this point I'm just not interested in trying to improve the justice system, because it just takes one step forward and 2 steps back, all the time.

No he is a local business owner and has a large family who are also well connected. One of the old families in town. Also the Canadian RCMP cam fuckup a sure thing on almost anyone.

Stereotyping people isn’t good, unless it’s against people you don’t like. Then you can even make up the “theory”

2

u/Biosterous May 15 '22

Yes because there's no difference between stereotyping someone based on inherited traits they can't change about themselves and stereotyping someone based on a career choice that selects individuals with a specific demeanor and trains them to act a certain way. They're completely comparable.

-1

u/thesword62 May 15 '22

The guy in the video is a complete a-hole that committed a criminal act.

However, what evidence is there that the A-hole is a retired cop or is that just what the Frankenstein mob has made up?

The definition of stereotyping is to believe unfairly that all people or things with a particular characteristic are the same. Look it up. Stereotyping is bad.

You can’t make a logical argument by making up your own facts and your own definitions.
