Why do I feel this way, which is what "fat chance" means?

Observation. And no, not just the NYPD.

Be sure to tell them that if you ever need to call 911. I donít wish bad on anyone but if thatís what you think just never ask one for anything or the police station. Iím sure youíd put your life on the line daily like the police or millitary for that pay. And why havenít you? That attitude is honestly sickening to me. Iíd hate for you to call the police and get what you seem to think are amajority bad. Just donít call.

I worked for U.S. Customs and did hundreds of importer interviews at their places of business. I wouldn't even accept a glass of water from them. Extreme? Maybe, but I didn't want even a whiff of a conflict of interest coming near me in case I had to take legal action against them.

This repo situation isn't a case of the blue wall of silence. This is a disgraceful abuse of power whose effect goes far beyond these particular officers. Their actions hurt the public's perception of all 35,000 NYPD officers, and thus the needed cooperation between the police and the public to fight crime.

The officers need to be fired immediately. And NYPD Commissioner O'Neill, too. This bum just apologized to the gay community for the actions of the NYPD at the Stonewall Inn in 1969 - considered to be the beginning of the gay rights movement in NYC.

There isn't one current NYPD employee who was on the job 50 years ago, so it's a groveling attempt of political correctness. As pathetic as anyone alive now apologizing for slavery when no one alive had anything to do with it.

Having been a peace officer and been through many encounters with repo drivers not one had the required paperwork to legally repossess the cars they picked up. Not one.
Has anyone here confirmed the driver had the proper documentation on that vehicle?
I don't know the process in NY, the driver could have been right and he could also have been wrong.

Rodriguez said the Nissan's owner showed up, offering to make his back payments.

But the repo man said he told them it wasn't that easy: once a car is on the tow truck and logged in, it's the bank's property.



The cop admitted that he was behind on the payments.

He had no right in arresting the repo man and he needs to be fired and charged for his crime.

What right did he have to take (or try take) the tow truck driver's surveillance equipment?

My only experience with police "corruption" was 30 years ago driving back and forth from my hometown Jacksonville to Atlanta, where I was in seminary. Used to cut through middle GA and came over a hill right to the city limits of a small town. Speed went from 55 to 35 in about 50 feet, and I wasn't going 55 :coolshades: . The classic small town sheriff sitting right behind the "Welcome to" as I sped by, downshifting and breaking. He pulled in behind, turned on his lights, and I pulled over. When he got out he was over 6 ft., had a giant wad of tobacco and pot belly, and a Smokey hat on--but was as black as the ace of spades. He said "Boy, you know how fast you were going?" Anyway, he demanded payment on the spot. I pointed to my sleeping less-than-one-year-old daughter, told him I was a poor seminary student with ten bucks and a gas card and held out my wrists for the cuffs. He exhaled loudly and said "Dammit, slow down then," kind of deflated and shuffled back to his car. Never had another ask for immediate payment. He looked like the central casting version of a small town redneck sheriff except for his color. Could hardly keep from laughing... :coffeenpc:

I must have been more tired than i thought when i read this article. I missed the part about the court order. The court order is the key to repossessing a vehicle.
As for all the dumb stuff the officers did there'll be hell to pay. They should know better than that.

There's a fun movie called "Crossroads" starring Ralph Macchio (yeah, usually I hate him) and Joe Seneca. Ralph plays a snot nosed guitar prodigy who wants to play the blues, Joe plays an old blues man who corrals him into taking him to Mississippi by promising to teach him Robert Johnson's lost song. The are hitchhiking thru the South, and they get rousted by the local deputy and sheriff, both of whom are black. After robbing them, the sheriff tells them to get across the county line and be someone else's problem. The old black blues man says, looking at the black cops "Things in this county seem to have changed, then again they kinda seem the same don't they?" Anyway the movie rocks, great music and you get to see the old blues man bust the kids chops all the time.

Every single police officer involved in this should lose their job. And be charged with wrongful arrest.


None of them will lose their job, because they are members of a public sector union.

It contained evidence of a crime! (Nevermind that the crime was likely committed by the cops.. 🙂)

(For LB - that was a joke. They had no right to do so that I could see.)

Would seem this isn't the first time a Cop got aggressive when having a vehicle repo'd. And yeah, I have had a few officer interactions over the years. All but one, where by in large un eventful, professional, and Officers where either simply doing their job or even going above and beyond. My problem is with those who cover for the worthless slugs as well as the idiots who intentionally make our brave Men and Women in blue lives harder.

Agreed=I also remember small town cops being helpful when I was hitchhiking in my college years-one even put me up in the jail overnight and his wife brought breakfast and he drove me 8 miles to a better road.


Just imagine all the pleasure we would have missed out on if small town cops had been nice to John J. Rambo. All he wanted was something to eat. They tried to put him up overnight in jail as well. (sorry for the segue away from the topic at hand, your story just sounded similar to Rambo's)

These cops give a bad image for all the great cops out there. I am sure that many people have a bad story about cops......just like this guy does in the story. In every walk of life, 1 bad example ruins it for all the great ones.

I LOVE that movie. Yeah I know, I'm not usually familiar with any movies that new (1986), but that one's an exception. I ESPECIALLY love the big guitar duel in the final few minutes, where he "cuts heads" with none other than the incredibly great Steve Vai:



If you've never seen that movie, and you love electric guitar virtuosity, WATCH THAT VIDEO. It's less than 7 minutes long.

You'll thank me.

:yes:

My brother used to be a trooper. He'd tell me stories of things people would say or do just to try to get him to react so they could claim racism or something. I know I couldn't have done it without cracking someone. He said he was always professional but his state DID have a law where a trooper could do a complete safety inspection of any vehicle. That was his response to the nasty ones.

I can tell you from experience, I appreciate the gesture but wish businesses did not try to pay for cops meals or discount them. One, because I signed up for the job and expect nothing more than my pay ( plus it embarrasses me). Two, we already get a bad rap from people, and some folks see this and assume we expect it. Three, citizens that pay for my meal before I can, only cause me to pick up someone else's tab at some point. I can also say that the citizens of the community I work for make my job worthwhile every day. I can't leave the station without getting a thank you for what I do. For me, that is worth being bought or discounted a hundred meals.

More on point, those chumps need to be suspended at the minimum. Another case of thousands of cops doing right, and some idiots flushing all that work down the drain 😡


The TGIF in my area comps our meal down to 1 cent. I hate going there but some nights it's the only thing available and you can only eat at the awful house so much. When I do eat there, I usually tip the waitress the cost of the meal. So our waitress will end up with a 10-12 dollar tip. Which is at least good for the woman serving us.
