Standing outside a school with a big camera from the back of a normal truck is the suspicious part. Not your race.
Get a news van.
@Dolorous Fvcking Edd, you’re right, because most pedophiles pull up in packs of two with giant cameras in order to avoid detection. Guaranteed if these people were white it’d be a non-issue.
@marshMELO, guarantee you’re wrong. People get real antsy about strange people near their children. As a 32 year old single white male I live in terror of walking my dogs near the elementary school by my house. It only takes 1 crazy parent to ruin my life forever. One person getting you arrested can put you on a list and you’ll never be able to live a normal life when you have to tell people you’re on a sex offenders list.
@BigJohnson86, you’re right, all it would take is 1 crazy parent to make a call to potentially ruin your life. My issue is with the equipment these people are using. It’s obviously professional equipment, and I highly doubt someone doing anything sketchy would draw that much attention to them.
@marshMELO, and my issue was that your comment immediately threw down the race card. There is real racists out there and when you claim that people of color only suffer from a problem white people have too it makes them less likely to listen to real racist complaints. It turns into the boy who cried wolf. Don’t be afraid to call out racism when you see it, but that comes with the responsibility to ensure what you see is actually racist.
@BigJohnson86, Whoever is down voting you obviously prefers to keep this issues because they would rather blame race than fix actual problems. God forbid we get rid of their best argument by finding out that racism, while prevalent, isn't the worst part of society
Probably called on themselves for the attention.
@ThePandaPool , fun fact: there are at least 9 easily triggered morons with accounts on FP.
edit again: 11
@Empshok, Or maybe, and hear me out, TPP's comment is just dumb.
@Jdrawer, nah, based on the data available, he raises a valid concern. Unless there is evidence against it, how do we know they weren't drawing attention to themselves? Isn't that the point of a news outlet?
@Empshok, just ignore jdrawer. Hes my personal troll. Has little better to do than to downvote even my non-edgy comments.
Have you tried actually using a fvcking news van to avoid misunderstandings like this?
@ JCLEMZ, I am a cop. Recently had someone call on their new neighbors for walking down the street. So dispatch sent us out because they have to. I talked to them super nice people. The saddest part about it is they said “ it’s not the first time this has happened” calls came in for the next couple of days from different neighbors. I refused to go after the first time I went down. Society needs to learn.
@Smellslikebacon, well maybe if you had just shot the people walking down the street then maybe people would stop calling. Like duh
@VibratingButtChomper, I prefer the taser. Less paperwork
@VibratingButtChomper, The true american solution.
@Smellslikebacon, first off thanks for choosing to be a police officer, second real cool for sharing this view point as I understand you guys go through a lot of stuff dealing with the worst of society. Lastly I got a cousin who’s a correctional officer and when you said you prefer to taser cause it’s less paper work I immediately thought my cousin cause he would say the same thing
@megamanx181x, thank you, that’s a rough job. At least I get a break from time to time from one specific demographic he’s totally immersed in it constantly
@Smellslikebacon, oh man ain’t that the truth, he has worked 14-16 hour days only to take an hour break and do it all over again. Lucky for him it isn’t maximum security but none the less he has to put up with either morons or gangsters trying to be tough
@Smellslikebacon, bruh... there are other cops on this app besides me? Nice.
@Smellslikebacon, hey cop question here. I was pulled over one time and the officer asked me where I was headed, and I said I was headed home, and he told me not to be a smartass...what was that about?
@Smellslikebacon, you handled the situation well unfortunately there are people that get into situations with bad cops. Thank you for being a good cop.
@ JCLEMZ, my uncle used to hire Somali immigrants for his cleaning service, they always came in big vans with the company name and number on all sides and had fluorescent blue polos with khakis as a uniform and were obviously carrying cleaning supplies. He had to fire all of them because his clientele was upper class and anytime the cleaners pulled up the neighbor's called the cops. One shift had the cops show up 3 times to the same house
@Smellslikebacon, you should just bring donuts every time and hang with them
@Smellslikebacon, hey man, i know i'm a little late to your post but i just want to say i respect you and the path you've chosen. There's been a lot of hate against police lately and i hope you know there's people who understand nobody can do a job perfect 100% of the time, and who do respect what you do. Stay safe friend.
Hooray for racism!
