Next time you're water-surfing behind a friend's SUV, on private property, and get stopped by some cops, I'd strongly suggest you flip them off and tell them to go to hell. Stand up for what you believe in. It's the cops that are wrong! They have no right to tell you to not break the law!

See how that works for you.
Actually I think it's kind of sad that someone your age needs to be lectured on life by someone my age, you'd think you'd know better by now.

As for the highlighted part, please indicate where I've stated that you should flip off the police and tell them to go to hell, nor that they had no right to tell the people in question to stop doing what they were doing.

Again, the kid was very respectful in his reply when the cops asked him if they thought they could "Just go around everywhere and do what they wanted", far more respectful than the cop.

I agree with you on one thing though, I will always stand up for what I believe in, I can guarantee that.

I think it's pathetic that somebody your age thinks he has the wisdom to lecture somebody my age. Clearly you do not. Unfortunately it'll take you years to realize that, if ever you do.

Again, the LEOs did what they are paid to do. They stopped the kids. Nothing more and nothing less. They made the kids sit down on the curb with their hands zip-tied behind their backs. BooHoo for the spoiled children.

So what's your point? That the kids should have been just left alone to do whatever stupid thing they felt like doing?

Or maybe, for their own safety and that of others, they should have been stopped. You know, keeping the peace.
You send them on their way...IF they are indeed breaking a law.

Send them on their way IF they are breaking the law? Yeah, that makes sense!

Or maybe what you do is stop them, restrain them, and (who knows if this is what the cops did) call the childrens' mommies and daddies to come get them.

Seems to me that'd be pretty appropriate.


The worst thing that ever happened to my older brother, back in the mid-70s, was when a local police officer escorted him home one night and told our parents what he had been doing in town. Shoot, all he was doing was joy-riding around on the slick, frozen streets.

Needless to say, my brother was more careful about how he drove after that.

Unfortunately, too many of today's parents have the attitudes expressed clearly on this thread: The cops are always wrong, and our little darling children are always right.

And I think you're a pathetic, ignorant narrow minded old fool who should keep his backwards degenerated ideas to slightly less public, so he doesn't humiliate himself so much.

But if you want to get into that, we can do it in DM's cause I'm sure it'll bore the other posters.


It is your opinion that the cops did what they're paid to do, it is my opinion that they went too far. They were also over 18 years old and legally adult, so the children thing is getting old. The crying too, no one's shedding tears here.

They were legally adults, their mothers and fathers had nothing to say in the matter.

I think you're reading too much into some of the posts in this thread.

I've certainly not seen a singly post saying the cops are always wrong.

Frankly I haven't even seen anyone claim it was wrong of them to stop said activity, what I have seen posted is several people who thinks the cops went too far, in that specific situation.

Wow. Thanks. It seems to me that you're just a mouthy punk after all.

Grow up, junior.


And by the way, I'll allow you to edit that little childish diatribe of yours before it's reported to the moderators...

I think the name calling and personal attacks aren't called for...by anyone.

Oh, I thought that when you were given the privilege to publicly slant me, my parental abilities and my intellect, I'd be given the same leniency.

Like I said, I see no reason to continue taking this off topic, if you have something you want to say, you're more than welcome to send me a DM, other than that I'm going to ignore your condescending remarks and only reply to things regarding the original topic.

I'm the one who has been responding to the topic.

The cops stopped some kids who were farting around on private property, clearly breaking two laws and actually breaking one where there is some gray area.

BooHoo. Let the kids cry. The cops did nothing wrong.
