So as a result we have a less effective force where a large percentage of the officers couldn't chase down my grandmother. Go union!
Oh, please do not get me started. There use to be minimum height and weight standards for cops/firemen until liberals decided women were being discriminated against as a result. There also use to be stringent physical fitness requirements until again, liberals decided women couldn't pass the tests, so it must be discrimination.
Needless to say for a chefs job you don't need to be physically fit. However for police/fire/rescue you do. So affirmative action caused the physical requirements to be decimated, and now anyone, fat slobs and even weakling men can be hired. Then of course as you correctly point out the unions are involved to protect the people who have no business working if they cannot do the job. Yet when has that ever stopped unions from blindly supporting their members.

Now, I'm a middle aged 170lb tub of lard now, but still only 5'0" (actually shorter now), but I am still very confident that very few people could pin me to the ground in seconds.
I'm sure you killed bears with your bare hands too in your prime.

Do you even know what bench pressing actually is?

Keep apologizing...

Maybe somebody should slam the cop to get his attention.


That's your reasoning not mine.

I'll put it this way. There were college football players twice her size who couldn't break 250.


I've never seen a woman that size bench over 250, let alone 300. That's 3 times her body weight and would make her the strongest woman in the world.

We are only getting one side of the story here, and that "news source" sounds like they have an axe to grind and an agenda of their own.

Don
The fact that both cops and the general public just willingly accept that doing anything that angers a cop is going to result in a beating or getting killed should show everyone how bad the cops have gotten and how much the system does to cover for them. The police should not have the right to beat people up to retaliate for non compliance.

Until large numbers of cops end up in prison or the public gets fed up and declares open season on cops and their families this stuff will continue.

I have no issues handling a 100 pound woman or man. Did it all my life. Bigger than that.



I'm a FB/RB/WR. Not a QB. Get it straight.

Yep. Some did. Like they're my nanny or something.




Meanwhile they're killing themselves by the thousands with their drugs that aren't drugs



Stupid people.

Gtownoe you're on a roll hahaha!

I'm 5'11/6'0 and the most I could deadlift is around 250, 275 max. Deadlifting is wayyy easier than
benchpressing.

5'0 105lbs is essentially a small child/pre-teen.

Just leaves my head scratching the crap some people say on this website.

The reaction to the woman after she was thrown down will tell you all you need to know about his intent.



If he bends down and helps her up, acts concerned, he didn't mean to do it.



If he simply gave no reaction and acted like it was supposed to happen then he likely meant to do it.
