Senior Citizen Held at Gunpoint, Forced to Remove Clothes in Public, Jailed, for Driving Classic Car

Las Vegas, NV — Because of the negligent actions of the Nevada Highway Patrol, a couple was humiliated, and their lives threatened, for stealing a car they actually owned.

Robin and Beverly Bruins were out for a drive in their classic car, when incompetent cops confused their license information and pulled them over.

“Driver! Remove your keys from the ignition and put them on the roof now!” screams the trooper over his loud speaker.

At first Robin Bruins found it funny that the senior citizen couple, who broke no laws, was being pulled over. But that changed quickly.

“Actually, I think I might have giggled to Bev saying, ‘well, I don’t know what this is all about’ and I put the keys on there,” Robin Bruins said. “And I turned and looked back and saw three gun barrels pointed at me. And, obviously it hit me. Whoa! What’s going on here? To this day, I have never experienced anything like looking down the barrel of guns like that.”

Multiple officers were shouting multiple different commands, which were conflicting. Fortunately, Bruins wasn’t shot for listening to one command while simultaneously disobeying another during the confusion.

In broad daylight, and on the side of the road Robin Bruins was forced to take off his shirt and hold his hands in the air while several officers drew down on this innocent senior citizen.

Bruins told KLAS, “And it wasn’t until I had taken my shirt off and told to get on my knees and handcuffed, and I said, ‘What’s going on? Do you think this car is stolen or something?’ And he said, ‘exactly right. And their car is going back to its rightful owner.’”

In the meantime, a different set of officers has their guns drawn on Robin’s wife Beverly, who is in the passenger seat with a broken leg. She was forced from the car at gunpoint and then told to walk backward — with a broken leg.

“I got out of the car and I thought, how am I gonna walk back without crutches?” she said. “So, I went to reach for my crutches in the back seat, and they yelled at me, ‘Keep — we said keep your hands in the air and walk backward towards us.’”

Luckily Beverly wasn’t filled with bullets for attempting to grab her crutches.

“And then she (the trooper) ran a check on my license plate and came back and un-handcuffed me and asked me if I’d like to say goodbye to my husband,” Beverly Bruins said. “And I said, ‘goodbye to my husband? Where’s my husband going?’ And she said, ‘well, he’s going to jail.’ So I went over to see Rob, and he’s in the back seat with no shirt on, hands behind his back and tears are running down his face.”

Robin Bruins was subsequently taken to jail and thrown in a general population holding cell, where he would be denied his medication.

“And I said, ‘well I’m past the time for my medications, can I take those now?’” he said. “You know, thinking that he was going to give ’em to me. And they said, ‘no, you can’t have anything you brought with you.’”

After Beverly Bruins had found a hotel room, she went to the jail to try and get her husband out. It was at the jail where she discovered the police incompetence that got them humiliated, almost killed, and her husband behind bars.

Restored plates, issued in the same year a classic car was made are legal in Washington state. However, when the trooper decided to run the plates on this car, he forgot to add a + sign to the beginning of the number, so it came back to the wrong vehicle.

That’s what got the couple unlawfully pulled over.

The incompetence continued after the car was stopped. When the trooper called in the VIN to dispatch, the dispatcher entered the wrong number into the computer. The random wrong number happened to be for a stolen car.

The situation was terrible, but with a few different variables, it could have been deadly.

The couple has since filed a lawsuit against the officers and head of the highway patrol for civil rights violations. And now it will be the taxpaying citizens of Nevada, who are held responsible for the gross incompetence of these officers.

    In Iraq, we were not allowed to engage an enemy that had fired upon us after the insurgent dropped their weapon but the police are allowed to shoot unarmed Americans if they perceive an unauthorized movement as aggression or a threat…..

  • Don’t do anything wrong and you won’t have to worry about being killed by cops. Riiiight. You’re a #&@%ing FOOL if you believe that.

    • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

      They weren’t killed. They didn’t disrespect the police. They didn’t yell at them or tell them to f*ck off. They didn’t start running away. Did the police make mistakes? Yes, and the taxpayers will pay for those mistakes.

      • Den Hickey

        And none of those things should get someone killed by police.

        • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

          Look, if you disrespect the police while they’re trying to do their job (or if you tell them to f*ck off or run away), you have a greater chance of getting shot by an edgy and disgruntled police officer. The police are human, just like the rest of us. It doesn’t take much to figure out that disrespecting another human makes tense situations worse. That’s just common sense. Nobody said that these things justify the police shooting people. People who fear for their lives on a daily basis behave in a certain way. Right now, police officers are on edge because BLM supporters are gunning for them. It sucks, but more incident like this one are going to happen.

          You may not want police officers to act this way, but what do you expect given today’s political climate? Professionalism? Respect? Many cops are trying, but many more are looking over their shoulders. BLM and the anti-police crowd have ensured that the police will be on edge for quite a while. You should be thankful this wasn’t a case of racial profiling.

            boot licker

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            You’re a clown. I’m no boot licker, but I am good at reading people. Do you know police officers? Do you understand that it is never a good idea for unarmed people (or armed people for that matter) to antagonize armed men? Advocating common sense and respect doesn’t make me a boot licker. On the other hand, especially given my original post, calling me a boot licker implies that you support disrespecting the police.

            I’ll tell you what – The next time you get pulled over, do the opposite of what I recommend and see what happens. If you were smart, which you not, you would already know that cooperating with agitated me who are armed is not only a good idea, it’s common sense.

          • Mike S.

            No, seriousl. You are a total boot licking, flag waving, mouth breather. Your profile even says you’re a ‘nationalist’. It doesn’t get anymore fascist than that

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            You’re a fool. I’m a proud American! That hardly makes me a fascist. You people throw that word around as if it makes you feel important. In reality, it only demonstrates your wishful thinking and ignorance. Do you even know what fascism is? How exactly is advocating common sense a demonstration of fascism? How exactly is being a patriot demonstrative of fascism? You must be one of those retards who believes nationalism=fascism. You are going to have your panties in a bunch when Trump is elected.

          • Mike S.

            …and you have a low IQ. I would lay odds it’s barely cresting the double digits. Go wipe the drool from your chin and put your helmet back on.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            For someone who doesn’t know the difference between fascism and nationalism, you sure do try to act as if you’re God’s gift to academia. You’re worse than stupid. You’re willfully ignorant.

          • Mike S.

            No, you don’t get to call anyone ‘stupid’. ANYONE who blindly follows orders, kowtows to bullies with guns and sympathizes with authoritarian agents of the state who routinely break our nations laws…is a brainless twit. You are pro Trump. That proves your lack of intellectuality. Nationalism is blind allegiance…one of the main ingredients of a fascist state. You are a boot licker. You can stomp your feet, shake your fists and squeeze your eyes closed and continue your tantruming and denial all you like…but it will not change this fact.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            I get to say whatever I want. This is America! Obviously, you aren’t capable of loving your own country or understanding people who do. That’s fine. People like me are the ones who defend your right to express your stupidity. You can claim I’m a boot licker all you want and bitch about Trump, but the fact remains that all I did was recommend common sense. Perhaps you should just ignore that advice and act like a jackass whenever you have to deal with the police. Go ahead and ignore pleas for civilized behavior and start mouthing off. People should be decent towards one another, especially when the other people are armed and ready to shoot you. Since you seem to disagree, and because you feel that it’s a good idea to abandon common sense, go ahead and treat cops in any way you want. I’m sure you’ll be proud of yourself when you can realize that your troubles could have been averted had you been a kinder person towards the people trying to do their thankless job.

          • Den Hickey

            “Go ahead and ignore pleas for civilized behavior and start mouthing off.”

            So… people stopped by the police should be civilized.. but police don’t have to be.. despite the fact that they are doing a job.

            You really are an idiot.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Who said the police don’t have to be civilized. See, that’s your problem. You make too many assumptions and reject common sense. Still, since you insist, go ahead and give the police a hard time the next time you’re detained and see how that works out for you. Idiots like yourself simply fail to comprehend the logic and common sense of civilized behavior. You would rather have citizens antagonize the police. Somehow, you think that’s a good idea. Your hatred of law enforcement only makes you look stupid.

            So yes, people stopped by the police should be civilized. It will help them if they ever need to sue the police. That is what this couple did. Had they acted like jackasses, they would have ruined any sympathy they might have received from a judge or jury. You’re too stupid to think that far ahead. Being respectful and level-headed doesn’t mean you support the police or police brutality. if you think otherwise, you’re part of the problem in America. Idiots like you preach about hatred and racism, yet you display the same sordid reasoning used by the people you supposedly detest. You can’t help but look at everything as if you are seeing things through the eyes of a victim. You can’t help but see race in everything. You’re a delusional moron, and the antics from people like you are making the problem worse. The real shame is that you believe you’re good intentions mean something or make things better.

          • Den Hickey

            “Who said the police don’t have to be civilized.”

            You. Repeatedly.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            No jackass. You’re lying again. I said absolutely no such thing. Cut and paste my comments and show me where I said they don’t have to be civilized. You know you can’t because you’re a liar.

          • Den Hickey

            You need a citation?! Idiot.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            You’ve already exposed yourself for the hate-filled racist lunatic that you are. You can’t comprehend basic logic, much less common sense. You simply want to rage over me recommending that people behave in a civil fashion. You imply that people shouldn’t be civil towards the police. You imply that being civil towards the police means people somehow support police brutality. You’re retarded if you think that, and there’s no hope for you until you pull your head out of your ass and reject the racist hatred ruling your life.

            Do you think people should disrespect the police? Do you think that’s really a good idea? And yes, paste my comments and show me where I said it was ok for the police to act unprofessionally. You know you can’t do it because I’ve done no such thing. You’re just a hateful liar who suffers from derangement. That’s what you get for letting politics rule your life. So, go on thinking that your good intentions and indignation are worthwhile. That won’t change the fact that you’re stupid.

          • Den Hickey

            “You’ve already exposed yourself for the hate-filled racist lunatic that you are.”

            Racist?! LOL!!!! Why do stupid progressives still act as if that word
            some sort of magic powers? You idiots have used it so much you’ve
            diminished the meaning of the word. Guess what? Nobody cares if you
            call me or anyone else a racist. See, you’re a political hack. When
            facts and reason TRUMP your argument, we expect you to call us racists
            and bigots. That’s how you liberals operate. You resort to calling
            people names because you are filled with hate

            Also.. you do realize I’m just quoting you, right?

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            You’re a fool. You haven’t quoted where I said it’s ok for the police to act unprofessionally. You won’t be able to because you know I never wrote that. You simply want to lie in order to mitigate your obvious cognitive dissonance. So, keep quoting me. All you’re doing is obfuscating the fact that you don’t know how to use critical thinking. You’re so hate-filled and stupid, I don’t believe you can actually defend a point, much less provide any substance for the BS you’re implying.

            You know you’re a liar. You also know that you’re wrong. You’re just too small of a person to be able to admit it. The fact that you and the other idiots like you get angry and upset over common sense doesn’t help bolster your argument. Again, you said that I said the police don’t have to be civilized. You’re too stupid to understand that saying that they are going to be uncivilized is not the same as saying the police don’t have to be uncivilized. Explain how that’s the case, genius.

            So, keep quoting me in an attempt to escape from the massive hole you’ve dug for yourself. You know you aren’t skilled enough to read properly, much less defend the stupid notion that people who are civil somehow support police violence. You people are going to come unglued when Trump wins.

          • Den Hickey

            Still waiting for you to show the guy in Tx was a part of BLM. … or are you a liar?

            “The fact that you and the other idiots like you get angry and upset”

            You’re the only one angry or upset.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Do a Google search for the following phrase “Micah Johnson anger for Black Lives Matter.: Officials have clearly gone on the record to state that Micah Johnson was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. He committed his crime in order to get justice for Black Lives Matter. Was he a card-carrying member of BLM? No. Who is? The BLM morons don’t issue out ID cards. BLM supporters aren’t masons or VFW members. Their movement is an adherent movement of racist victims who like to bitch about a false narrative they’ve been duped into believing. The shooter wasn’t just inspired by the racists at BLM. He was inspired by something worse: violent black supremacy. He was a trained loner who adopted the philosophies of black supremacists. He supported Black Lives Matter and murdered those police officers. BLM supporters then celebrated his crimes and called for more murders to take place. I know you don’t like facing the fact that BLM is a terrorist organization, but facts are facts.

            And stop lying. You know you’re angry. Your hatred is obvious. You hate anyone who disagrees with you. You obviously support BLM, so I have no doubt that you hate the police. Your posts demonstrate this fact. So, stop lying to yourself and admit that you are nothing but a worthless and hateful liar. All I did was suggest that people use common sense, keep a level-head, and remain civil. You rejected that advice because you’re stupid. Only stupid people reject common sense and act as if they did something intelligent. Grow up, little boy. You seem to think that behaving like a decent human being is bad advice. You seem to think that if people are decent human beings towards the police, they somehow approve of tyranny. Worse, you think that people who advise people to be civil are somehow defending the police. You can’t see how your logic fails because you’re stupid. Go back to school and take a critical thinking class. Idiots like you shouldn’t have kids or vote. Don’t play with scissors either. Moron.

          • MrMajor

            Racist, cunt.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            How exactly am I a racist? If you want to see a bunch of racists, look no further than the BLM movement, idiot. All you morons do is call other people racists when they disagree with you. You’re all too stupid to figure out that you have diminished the word. Yada, yada, yada…”Trump is Hitler and you’re a racist.” Do you hear how dumb you people sound?

          • MrMajor

            No he isn;t you said it right up there, moron.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            It isn’t right up there. Cut and paste my comments if you think I’m wrong. You know that I’m not wrong. All you’re doing is proving that you people can’t argue for shit, as well as demonstrating how you are all a bunch of pathetic liars in denial of the truth. Come on you little bitch! Paste the comment where I said the police don’t have to be civilized. You stupid retards have rejected common sense and sound reasoning, and it’s hilarious. It’s going to be even more hilarious when you’re forced to ride the Trump train, lol.

          • Mike S.

            ‘People like me defend people like you’…couldn’t be further from the truth. You may have the constitutional right to say what you want but you have zero authority to do so. I am an honorably discharge veteran of service. I swore an oath to defend all threats against our rights. These rights include ones that are inhibited by bully cops. No one should have to submit to a law breaking police officer for fear of getting shot. You are a flag waving coward and a lap dog to the system. It is nationalistic morons like you who set the precident for a police state. You can hang around on this article playing hall monitor but really you’re just a simpleton with a lot of opinion. I long for the days when the dumb kids stayed quiet.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            You’re a dumbass. You don’t seem to get that advising people to be civil and use common sense doesn’t mean they’re supportive of bully cops. How exactly does your reasoning allow you to conclude such a nonsensical conclusion? You claim you swore an oath an oath to defend all threats against our rights, but here you are threatening those rights with your stupidity. All I did was tell people to be civil with the police. It actually helps them if they need to sue the cops. You’re too stupid to think that far ahead. Worse, you conclude that people like me set a precedent for a police state. How exactly is that the case?

            There is nothing wrong with being proud of your country. Nationalism exists in EVERY country. Nationalism is not racism, and it is not a precursor to a police state. So, get all huffy and puffy and continue to act like an angry buffoon.

            You’re too stupid to understand that antagonizing armed people is a stupid thing to do. You seem to think that the police aren’t capable of becoming unhinged. Rather than realizing common sense, you let your lizard brain take over. You seem to think that being an ass towards the police makes you brave. When someone disagrees and gives you a well-reasoned response, you throw a tantrum and call people cowards. The only person who is afraid here is you. You’re afraid of using reason and common sense.

            So, little boy, go ahead and demonstrate your hubris and lack of reasoning by telling the police to f*ck themselves the next time you are around them. You still haven’t explained how that’s a good idea, but whatever. Go ahead and exercise your right to reject common sense. Go ahead and wrongly conclude that your behavior demonstrates principle, even though it actually demonstrates stupidity. Go ahead and tell yourself that I have no authority to say what I want, even though I do. You don’t know what you think you know, and it’s because your stupid. Your commentary is proof of this.

          • Mike S.

            Wipe the drool from your chin and put your helmet back on. There are MANY recent cases of people being civil and still getting fucked. THIS article illustrating just one of them. You can lick boots and champion a bully all you want, it just makes you a bully and a coward as well. GFY

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            You seem to want people to be uncivil towards the police. Explain to me how that’s a good idea. I understand that you’re not very good with logic, but I’m giving you a fair chance. Explain how being uncivil with the police is better than being civil with the police. Explain how being uncivil towards the police somehow constitutes approval of unprofessional behavior. Yes, people have been civil and have still been screwed over. Are you suggesting that they wouldn’t have been screwed over had they been uncivil.

            All I did was recommend that people remain civil towards the police. Never mind the fact that such advice is good advice. It’s common sense, which you obviously lack.

            So, rather than acting like a little name calling girl who can’t stand panties going up your ass, why don’t you prove your assertion. You and I both know that you’re nothing more than an angry little child who is upset at Trump because of all the mean things he says. Somehow, in your deluded little mind, that means people who call for civility are a bunch of meanies who support Hitler. Your tears and bitching aren’t going to cure you from the ass hurt you’re going to feel when Trump is elected. But go ahead an cry some more like a scared little girl. Better yet, prove your own point and tell the police to go f*ck themselves the next time you are around them. Go ahead and give them a hard time while pretending that your actions somehow makes things better. You know that you won’t. You won’t because the only coward here is you. You’re afraid to use your brain. You’re afraid of dealing with your cognitive dissonance. You know you’re wrong, but like an fool you cling to your nonsensical position.

          • Mike S.

            What the living fuck do you know about civility? You are Trump supporter. Please fuck off

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            That’s right! I’m a Trump supporter. You better get on the Trump train because your candidate is going to prison soon!

            And what do I know about civility? I know that people who antagonize the police are a bunch of retards like yourself. See, you haven’t explained why it’s a good idea to f*ck with the police. You haven’t explained how being civil demonstrates support for fascism. Dumb kids like yourself are so filled with hatred and anger. It’s no wonder you idiots can’t use critical thinking. You are too pissed off at things you don’t understand. Do you even know what a boot licker is? Do you even know the definition of “Nationalist?” You people are hilarious.

            So, hurry up now and try to muster up a clever response. You can do it. I believe in you.

          • Mike S.

            Shouldn’t you be off cutting eye holes into your pillow case for your next Trump rally? Please, pretty please fuck off. You are a mindless twit, a mouth breather, a self righteous moron and a grade A pile of shit. You are a shining example of why people like Hitler could rise to power. You repel logic like Teflon. You blindly follow anyone who will wave the flag. You don’t know sacrifice and you don’t respect our fellow countrymen. ANYONE who still supports Trump, has the rationalization skills of a lawn ornament and is absent of ANY integrity. GFY

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Stop crying and acting like a bitch. Calling people racists is your bread and butter. That’s all you have. And repelling logic? When have you used logic? You’re the idiot who thinks it’s a good idea to antagonize the police. You aren’t capable of using logic. If you were capable of using logic, you would already know that your argument is asinine.

            Why haven’t you explained how it’s a good idea to be uncivil towards the police? Why haven’t you explained how civility implies the support of fascism? “Rationalization” skills? You’re too stupid to understand that you should have used the word “reasoning” instead of “rationalization.” Of course, you’ll just rationalize and continue to ignore the truth.

            And what do you know of integrity? If you had integrity, you would actually back up your assertions with reasoning and logic. If you had integrity, you would be honest with yourself. You’re not. You know you can’t argue your points because your points are invalid. Instead, you resort to calling your opponents names because you don’t have anything else in the tank. Remember, you’re the moron who thinks it’s a good idea for people to give agitated police a hard time, and you’re the simpleton who believes that anyone who is civil supports fascist tyranny. You won’t explain yourself, mainly because you’re intellectually dishonest. You have no integrity. Your writing demonstrates this.

            So, go ahead and continue to act like a little brat. Unless you explain why it’s a bad idea to be civil towards the police, you’re only making yourself look like a bigger ass.

          • Mike S.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Of course, a dumb little bitch like yourself finds reading difficult. That isn’t surprising given the fact that you can’t back up your argument. You better get on that Trump train. Your candidate is going to prison. I’m sure your candidate will get to lick all kinds of boots there. I bet you’re jealous.

          • Mike S.

            There is no argument. These cops deserve zero respect. You want respect, you give it. Cops dont automatically deserve respect. This means little to boot licking ass kissers like yourself. Trumps a cunt just like you. You have the intellectual capacity of a lawn ornament. I suggest you hop along back to your trailer park and fuck off

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Damn, you’re stupid! Since when does acting like a civilized person constitute deferential respect? Acting “respectful” is not the same as paying “deference.” You claim there is no argument, but that’s only because you can’t argue for shit. You don’t understand basic logic. There’s no hope for you. So far, you haven’t proven your point. You haven’t explained how being a jackass towards the police is a good idea. You have nothing to give except the bitter truth of knowing that Trump is going to be your next president. It would be sad if you weren’t so easy to laugh at.

            So, if you’re not going to prove your point or explain your logic, fuck off. If you are going to prove your point, please film it and upload it to YouTube. Maybe the BLM morons will see the police beat your white ass and then laugh about it. Maybe your video will go viral and get you lots of clicks. Maybe you’ll be able to move out of your mother’s basement. I’m sure she’s tired of you crying all the time and screaming “the mean boot licking people on the Internet hurt my feelings again.”

          • No seriously @tychonian:disqus , @mike_santoro:disqus is right: you’re a bootlicker.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            And just like Mike S., you’re retarded. Advocating for common sense does not make one a boot licker. All I did was recommend that people remain civil towards the police, but you bastards want to cry like little bitches since you wrongly think common sense doesn’t apply. You idiots somehow think that being civil implies approval of tyranny. You people are too dense to realize that you shouldn’t antagonize agitated police officers since it actually increases the chance of you getting shot or having your ass beat. The sad thing is that you morons vote. You should be ashamed of your lack of reasoning. It’s as if you dumb bastards are incapable of using basic logic. You have no common sense or critical thinking skills.

            Like I told the other morons who are defending stupid points, go ahead and tell the cops to f*ck off. See what happens. It is obvious that none of you window lickers are going to explain how it’s a good idea to give the police a hard time. You won’t explain how you came to the conclusion that I’m a boot licker.

            Why don’t you read the words written on your avatar picture? Universalize Non-Violence, right? Do you know what that means? Apparently not since you think I’m a boot licker simply for stating that pissing off the police is a bad idea. I recommended that people remain civil. Is that not an expression of non-violence? Or is the notion not universal? See, you’re a hypocrite and you don’t even realize it.

            Why would I need professional help? Simply because I believe that people who piss off the police when they’re doing their job run the risk of getting their ass beaten or shot? Is that not common sense?

            Like I said, you people are retards. There is no desire from you people to use reason. You’re just filled with rage and hate. You idiots don’t even know why you’re pissed off. You think it’s Trump or his supporters or Nazis or Police Officers or white people, etc. The real reason why you people are so pissed off is because you’re gullible. You believe the BS reported by the media. You idiots think Trump is Satan, all the while doing your best to lie to yourselves about Hillary Clinton. And you idiots think I’m the boot licker. Go figure, losers.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            It seems nonsensical to you because of your inability to use common sense. Again, none of you idiots have proven how it’s a good idea to give the police a hard time when they’re doing their job. It’s because you people can’t. You’re all anger filled morons who live in a vacuum filled with like-minded idiots.

            Yes, my avatar is a skull. Yes, my name is NUCLEAR JUDOKA. Those are facts. Do you know what facts are? If so, why don’t you provide some facts that support your stupid arguments? Why don’t you educate me on how being civil with the police is a bad idea? Why don’t you prove me wrong? We all know you people are a bunch of douche bags who get angry with people simply because they advise non-confrontational behavior when dealing with agitated police officers, but you’re also a bunch of cowards. You idiots know that you would never give the police a hard time if it were you in the video. If so, prove it! My point is self-evident. Only retards argue against self-evident points, but maybe you’re one of those special kind of retards. You, just like the other people on this thread who believe that being civil is somehow wrong, are retarded. Really. Fucking retards. You idiots are going to be beside yourselves when Trump is your president, lol.

          • Den Hickey

            A. Police are supposed to be trained professionals and this is their job, but you want leeway for them because “they’re human, just like the rest of us” while at the same time trying to blame the people they kill because they were rude to police or ran from police.. all things someone who is human might do after decades of police harassing, assaulting, and even killing (black) people for no good reason. You are making excuses for the lack of impulse control among those who are trained professionals but not giving any such leeway to those who are NOT trained professionals.

            B. TWO people have killed cops because of cops killing black people. NEITHER of them were “BLM supporters”.

            C. “You may not want police officers to act this way, but what do
            you expect given today’s political climate? Professionalism? Respect?”

            YES. Professionalism, Respect, and restraint BECAUSE THAT IS THEIR JOB! If they can’t do that, then they should not be cops. Period.

            D. “BLM and the anti-police crowd have ensured that the police will be on edge for quite a while.”

            BLM is not anti-police. It is against police harassing, assaulting, and killing black people for no good reason. That is something that has gone on for decades. If you think that is anti-police, then what does that say about what you think the job of police is in the first place?

            E. What you are basically saying is that if people complain about police killing black people and if two lone criminals kill police because police kill black people so casually police will then be MORE likely to kill even more people… and we should just expect that, rather than expect actual professionalism from the professionals we task with enforcing the law.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Obviously, you think it’s completely fine to disrespect police, yell at them, tell them to f*ck off, and run away. Try doing all those things and see what happens.

            And save your BS about BLM for the fools who buy into your obvious apologist propaganda. Don’t lie and say BLM isn’t anti-police when their hatred is so profound. You’re probably one of those fools who is upset over the fact that this couple wasn’t black. You probably wish they were so you can feel better about your indignation. You aren’t fooling anyone.

            You can lie and put words in my mouth, but all I explained was that people who yell at the police or run from them have a higher likelihood of getting shot. Sure, they should be professional. Hasn’t common sense and recent history shown that professionalism can easily be trumped by paranoia and anger? But go ahead and tell them to f*ck off and run from them while you’re yelling “YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PROFESSIONALS.” Maybe they’ll hear you and respond by saying “You’re right, and now we won’t beat your ass.”

          • Richard Moore

            Is running away a cause for deadly force now? I’m not up on the current rules. Does yelling constitute bodily injury and harm and can therefore be mitigated by shooting the person and be absolved by the officer claiming they feared for their lives because of words? I don’t have my rules of conduct handy. And we all know car theft raises to the level of public endangerment where we need three officers drawing guns to stop this heinous crime.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Is running away a cause for deadly force now? No, but if you run away from the cops, there’s a greater chance of you getting your ass kicked or shot. Is it wrong? Sure, but it is reality. Use common sense.

            Does yelling constitute bodily injury and harm and can therefore be mitigated by shooting the person and be absolved by the officer claiming they feared for their lives because of words? No. There’s nothing illegal about yelling; however, if you choose to yell at the police, there’s a greater chance of you getting your ass kicked or shot. Is it wrong? Sure, but it is reality. Use common sense.

            You people seem to think I’m defending the police. You guys are smoking crack or something. All I’m saying is that the police are on edge right now, and if you had been paying attention to the current political climate, you would understand why. You can demand all the professionalism and reform you want from police officers, but police officers are human just like the rest of us. That means they’re assholes like the rest of us. Still, you can think what you want. Go ahead and yell at the police or run from them. If you get your ass beat or shot, you can then argue before a judge that your civil rights were violated. Maybe you’ll win the ghetto lottery and get a large settlement.

          • Den Hickey

            “You people seem to think I’m defending the police.”

            Because YOU ARE.

            been paying attention to the current political climate, you would
            understand why.”

            Police deaths are at their lowest in decades. Please explain what the political climate is that puts them so on edge.. outside of people getting fed up with them killing black people for no good reason, of course.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            No, I’m not. I’m defending common sense. It’s not my fault you’re too stupid to figure that out.

            And get real. Have you not paid attention to all the loser BLM people threatening cops?! Do you not remember the BLM supporter who killed all those cops in Texas?! Stop being an apologist for BLM. If you think the cops aren’t on edge, you’re an idiot who isn’t paying attention.

          • Den Hickey

            Except, of course, that guy WASN’T involved in BLM. Aaand still just ONE guy. How many cops have harassed, assaulted, or killed black people for no good reason?

            ” If you think the cops aren’t on edge, you’re an idiot who isn’t paying attention.”

            You mean despite the fact that police deaths are incredibly low? And yet you expect black people to not run away from cops despite the numbers of black people killed by police?

            “I’m defending common sense.”

            Oh, so you are trying to lecture (black) people about how they should act around cops… like the actual people being harassed, assaulted, and killed haven’t known that for decades.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            Go ahead and be a useful idiot for the BLM movement. Nobody is going to take your seriously. The black man who killed those officers supported BLM. He hated white people and really hated the police. You’re just a liar who wants to make it seem as if the losers from BLM are a bunch of reasonable people. They’re not. They’re assholes who endanger people’s lives by blocking the freeway and encouraging violence against the police. You can lie and try to paint a different picture, but people will see through your nonsense. BLM are a bunch of idiots and racist agitators. Go ahead and act as if police aren’t concerned about BLM supporters assassinating them. Your delusions won’t change reality. The police are on edge, and only clueless people like yourself think otherwise.

            And stop being a racist. I didn’t lecture black people. That’s just wishful thinking on your part. I’m advocating common sense. If you tell the police to f*ck off or start running away when they detain you, you stand a greater chance of getting your ass beat or shot. If you don’t think so, it’s because you choose to see things wrong. You just want to see race as an issue because you’re mentally deranged.

            So, go ahead and do what you want when the police pull you over. Get out of the car and piss on their leg. When they beat your ass or shoot you, you can lecture them on how they should be more professional.

          • Den Hickey

            “The black man who killed those officers supported BLM. He hated white people and really hated the police.”

            Citation needed.

            “They’re assholes who endanger people’s lives by blocking the freeway”

            Its funny how you paint an entire nationwide movement by something done by a tiny number of people… but when it comes to cops, not so much. You make excuses for them.

            “Go ahead and act as if police aren’t concerned about BLM supporters assassinating them.”

            …. because police have been harassing, assaulting, and killing black people and getting away with it for decades.

            “You just want to see race as an issue because you’re mentally deranged.”

            Except, of course, black people are statistically more likely to be assaulted or killed by police. .. and the police are more likely to get away with it. And the media and society are more likely to try to blame them for their own deaths no matter what the circumstances.

            “When they beat your ass or shoot you, you can lecture them on how they should be more professional.”

            No, I’m saying they should be more professional RIGHT NOW.

          • Nuclear Judoka ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

            You need a citation?! Idiot. That bastard assassinated police officers. His hatred should be as should be as self-evident as your stupidity, but people like you are blinded by your politics. Like I said, you are deranged.

            Quit bitching about the plight of black people being harassed or killed by the police. What you need to do is get over yourself. You don’t know what you think you know. Look up the statistics. It isn’t hard. Use Google. If you do your homework, you will see that there is no epidemic of police officers killing black people. Most of the black people killed in America are killed by other black people. So much for Black Lives Matter. More white people are killed by the police than blacks. That’s a fact, but you’ll dismiss it. BLM thrives because of racists like yourself who can’t get over what someone’s ancestors did to someone else’s ancestors. Your tantrums and indignation only reinforce your rejection of reason. Yeah, racism sucks, but so does posing as a bunch of weak little victims who use race to complain about everything. Get over yourself and stop being a racist.

            You can demand professionalism all you want, but you should know better. You’re probably one of those morons who gets pissed off and shocked when you are surprised by the wait at the DMV, despite the fact that such a wait is to be expected. Behavior is predictable. The police are behaving in the way they’re behaving because media sensationalism has promoted a dishonest narrative that you are buying into. To make matters worse, you’re deluding yourself into thinking that this problem doesn’t exist. You disregard the evidence and act as if it lacks credibility or doesn’t exist. It’s no wonder people like you tend to support Hillary. She’s a talented liar, and you seem to like to telling lies to yourself.

            Your statistics are BS. The real statistics paint a different picture from the scenario you’re conjuring. Black people commit over half of all murders, despite only comprising around 13 percent of the population. Even with that statistic in mind, the police still managed to kill more white people – CRIMINALS. Everyone bitches when the police do stupid things like arrest an old white disabled couple, but they don’t seem to mind when the police have to deal with violent thugs, rapists, child murderers, arsonists, vandals, heroin dealers, or crazy people. Police have to deal with the worst of the worst, but here you are demanding more professionalism like a childish spectator. Your naive approach to the burden of civilization keeps you ignorant.

            You specifically said he was associated with BLM. You dropped that, of course, when you responded. Goodbye. Someone as dishonest as you is not worth talking to.

            Yes, more white people are killed.. because white people make up around 80% of the country. Black people are more likely than white people to be killed by police per capita, though.

            Racist?! LOL!!!! Why do stupid progressives still act as if that word some sort of magic powers? You idiots have used it so much you’ve diminished the meaning of the word. Guess what? Nobody cares if you call me or anyone else a racist. See, you’re a political hack. When facts and reason TRUMP your argument, we expect you to call us racists and bigots. That’s how you liberals operate. You resort to calling people names because you are filled with hate but have no real power to do anything about the problems you’re bitching about. You think your good intentions and flawed ideas somehow make you more important than you really are. The fact of the matter is that you are completely unimportant.

            What are you going to do about the problem of bad police behavior? Are you going to cry some more like a little girl? Are you going to get all huffy and puffy while you pout at the screen. What are you going to do? NOTHING. That’s right, NOTHING. When the police pull you over, go ahead and keep it real by telling them to f*ck themselves, all the while telling yourself that you showed them.

            And stop lying to yourself. You use conjecture to reluctantly accept the fact that more whites are killed by the police. You then try to marginalize the statistic by implying something stupid, all the while ignoring the fact that blacks commit more than half the murders in this country. HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT, GENIUS?! Tell me how blacks, who make up around 13% of our nation’s populace, are somehow not to blame for their disproportionate participation in murder. I suppose that it hasn’t dawned upon you if black people stopped committing crimes, they would probably encounter the police less. You probably think that’s racist, but facts and reasoning are on my side.

            You probably think you’re special because you think this problem predated media sensationalism. It’s too bad you lack common sense. Maybe if you had some common sense, you would already know that the behavior you are referring to isn’t going to disappear. That behavior isn’t going to go away. Mankind has demonstrated thuggery from time immemorial. Oppression is a human trait that will never be eradicated. No amount of training or professionalism is going to get rid of that reality. But go ahead and try to do so by giving the police a hard time when they’re trying to do their job. Go ahead and pontificate about professionalism and how they should deal with murderers and gang members. Go ahead and rehash that delusion going around in your head where you somehow believe your good intentions make a difference. We both know that you will not solve this problem. You’re the kind of idiot who thinks using common sense is bad advice. Maybe if you weren’t such a racist viewing things through a racist looking glass you would understand these points. Now, go back to being all upset with the mean racist man on the Internet who hurt your feelings, lol.

            See, that’s what’s funny – you really are a racist, and you have the nerve to call others racist because you mistakenly think I’m a supporter of the police. You then respond in the only way you know how, which is to call me a racist. All I did was recommend that people use common sense and decency around the police and you act as if I’m a Nazi who killed your cat. You really are deranged. I wonder how sad you’re going to be when Trump wins in November.

            And yes, you are a racist. You see the world through a lens of victimization and skin color. You let politics define your actions, even when that action is to deny the truth and common sense. You don’t know what you think you know, and in the end, your efforts are meaningless.

            Tell me, what have you done to lessen the violence happening in the black community other than bitch and complain? What solutions do you have that are realistic? See, you have none. There are no solutions to the problem you’re complaining about. Human nature is what it is, and the arrogance of modern man is thinking that they are somehow different and can fix it. You aren’t fixing anything. No one is fixing anything about racism and hatred towards one another. You’re too dense to understand that concept. If you were smart, you would realize that being civil towards the police isn’t in any way bad advice, but in your deranged mind, I’m a police apologist. In your deranged mind, black supremacists have not been killing the cops or putting the cops on edge. In your sick mind, the cops aren’t on edge and the problem is non-existent. In your sick mind, BLM loves white people and the police and are merely introducing a grievance. So, yes, you are a racist and stupid to boot.

            “Obviously, you think it’s completely fine to disrespect police, yell at them, tell them to f*ck off, and run away.”

            No, but outside of running from them (when they have reason to lawfully detain you) none of those things are illegal and none of those things should cause police to assault or kill you.

            You are doing nothing but making excuses for criminal cops. If they can’t be professional in their duties, they shouldn’t be cops. If they can’t do their job and not needlessly assault and kill (black) people, then they should be in jail.

            “Don’t lie and say BLM isn’t anti-police when their hatred is so profound.”

            Funny how you make excuses for cops because they are “only human” and can be subject to paranoia and anger because two guys not affiliated with BLM killed cops in retaliation for cops killing black people… but act like black people should all just be completely rational and professional and not be angry at all despite decades of police harassing, assaulting, and killing black people and getting away with it.

            Why are you people devoid of common sense? Your reasoning implies that you’re an idiot who can’t think. You’re confused and haven’t grasped my assertion, much less any argument stemming from it.

            People should use common sense. If you antagonize the police, there is a greater chance of you getting your ass beat or shot. How is this point wrong? Are you saying that police are extremely rational and can’t be provoked? Police are on edge right now due to the current political climate caused by all those BLM losers. Are you going to say that the police won’t act irrationally towards people who give them a hard time? And how do my comments translate towards support of the police? See, that’s where you people are demonstrating your stupidity. Nobody is saying that it’s ok for the police to act unprofessionally. I’m saying that the police are going to act that way regardless of what you are anyone else says about it. But go ahead and think I’m wrong, even though it’s obvious that I’m not. Go ahead and tell the police to f*ck themselves the next time you get detained and see if that helps your situation. If you think it does, you are as stupid as you appear.

            Moron. They serve us. The citizens. The minute you accept the idiotic statement that, “just do what we say and you won’t get hurt” you are living in a fascist society. “just do what we say and you won’t get hurt” is what hijackers and kidnappers say to their victems, you idiot.

            Who said the police don’t serve the citizens? You idiots really need to learn how to read. All I said was that people should be civil when dealing with the police. How the fuck is that a bad idea? You morons seem to think that it’s a good idea to fuck with the police. Haven’t you idiots figured out that the police are on edge right now thanks to all the idiots from BLM? Explain how giving the police a hard time benefits someone. You dumb shits act like you’re doing some sort of noble defiance by being a bunch of jackasses towards the police, but all you’re really doing is demonstrating your profound lack of common sense. BEING CIVIL IS NOT THE SAME AS PAYING DEFERENCE.

            You fucking dipshits should prove me wrong rather than crying and bitching like little Hillary supporters. You sensitive little snowflakes need to put in more cognitive effort. Explain your logic and reasoning. Explain how its a good idea to give the police a bunch of shit. If you morons just stopped and thought about it for a few minutes, maybe you would realize that it’s a terrible idea to agitate armed police officers. You idiots think that it’s your duty or something to act like a bunch of uncivilized morons. Worse, you dumb fucks think that behaving in a civilized manner implies approval of police brutality. Like I said, you’re all stupid. Not a single one of you is capable of explaining yourselves or proving me wrong. If you think you can, do it and stop crying like a bitch.

          How exactly is acting civilized unacceptable? All I did was speak the truth, but you people stupidly reject common sense and reason. If you give the police a hard time when they detain you, there is an increased chance that they will beat your ass or shoot you. Explain how this is false. The police are extremely agitated right now because of all the BLM dipshits who want them dead. Despite this, you seem to think that acting like a civilized person towards the police is somehow a bad idea. Worse, you idiots think that behaving like a civilized person somehow implies approval of fascism. You guys are as stupid as those stupid social justice morons. Just because a person chooses to act like a civilized person doesn’t mean the person demonstrating civility is approving of unprofessional police behavior. If you think it does, prove it.

          Since you are pathetically stupid, and since you seem to think that it’s acceptable to give the police a bunch of shit, why don’t you prove your point. Go ahead and prove that giving the police a bunch of shit is a good idea. Why don’t you walk the walk, retard?

    I got cited for speeding while others were speeding past me, by the Nevada Highway Patrol,the officer in question SUGE, out of Lovelock, didnt know how to spell. Aurora or other things i stated.. he asked me for my Social Security number and I said let me look at the form.. nowhere on the form doesnt it mention privacy act. So i told him by Federal law i dont have to provide my SSI number because it doesnt state the privacy clause on it.. he also pulled the guy behind me, Claiming he was going faster than i was.. when i challenged him about the speed he claimed I was going 67mph and the speed of the car behind me 90mph and the max speed on my speedometer 85mph, he dropped the speed I supposedly was going 87 by 15 mph. the speed I was going when I got pulled over was 67mph going up hill in a fully loaded pickup truck.. I contested the ticket and before the court date, I was sent a letter stating it was dismissed..

    This is something that should be worth a $million dollar law suit at a minimum.

    If the woman had been black they would have filled her full of lead the moment she reached into the car for her crutches.

    lol where are all the people saying “they just want a payday” “let’s see their criminal records” and “don’t break the law and you will be fine”?

    • Den Hickey

      They are too busy saying that about anyone with brown skin no matter what the circumstances… because they hate people of color.

    But don’t worry, all the hero cops went home safe.

  • reticle

    Holy smokes.

    I imagine the dispatcher is at this point unemployed; I do hope they included the dispatcher in the suit too. Jeesh.

    Sue the crap out of the police state.

    Nuclear Jodako, Bang on brother. If there has been injustice here, they have the right to pursue it. Not just accept it.

  • Cindy Worley

    I am so sorry for these dear people. I feel like cops don’t know how to even be nice anymore, no matter what the situation. None of this was necessary, and I hope they are financially compensated for this terrible experience, but that will never be erased from their psyche. Jerk cops.

    same shit, different pigs. SUE THEM TO SHIT.

  • Josh Daniel

    well naturally if you sue for compensation it’ll be the taxpayer’s expense. what they have is something called revenue- OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY. the PD is a business. when they need money they “make mistakes” to justify their actions. if they need a paid vacation, they’ll “fear for their lives” and shoot you. it’s easy. the dept only continues to benefit off the civilian.

    They insure against legal settlements like this. Unfortunately nobody will learn a lesson from this.
