File this under, WTF. I’m not one to use the F word frequently but, wow. Florida really is a place onto itself. First watch this:
This is over a traffic violation I’ve just about had it. I’m SO sick of cops pulling people over and taking advantage of the average citizen. The other day I was on my way to work, and a Monroe county sheriff blew off a red light at about 70MPH. A block later, a Rochester City cop pulled over a young black man, assumedly for a traffic violation (I’d bet it wasn’t, but that’s just me.) The cop was thoughtful enough to block two lanes of traffic. Now. Think about that for a second. What sense does that make. If indeed, the cop is pulling someone over, it is as a guardian of the public safety. Blocking two lanes of traffic and creating a traffic jam does not public safety make. These incidents are not isolated, and cops must be held accountable. Contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff online at: http://www.hcso.tampa.fl.us/ and the County Commissioners at http://www.hillsboroughcounty.org/bocc/about/contactus.cfm. These police — all five of them in the room — should be shitcanned. Treating another human in this way is simply unconscionable.
