Real news. With snark, invective, and lots of links. Guaranteed behaving badly.

The 69-year-old man was using his golf club as a cane when the officer kept asking him to put it down, and then accused him of swinging it at he, something that never happened.
“Like” us on Facebook, please.
the cop was so afraid. Just do your job you asshole. stop harassing people
so many police over something the incompetent bitch made up. How has she got a job
Why on earth would you pull over your car (as law enforcement) and start a thing with an old man? What kind of psychological issues must she be dealing with to even pick this fight and how often has she done this in the past. She is a bully and should no longer have a job.
according to her FB, she is a racist and never imagined this would go viral
Because nobody paid any attention to the previous times she decided to violate someone’s civil rights.
i’m upset that his defense attorney didn’t do any homework and request the video to begin with before allowing this man to plea guilty to a crime he didn’t commit. i’m sure he told him this wasn’t at all true and likely ignored. sure, you’re all innocent.
If I recall, he originally had a public defender. I don’t want to castigate an entire segment of a profession but this seems to happen a lot.
I’m relieved the armed thug didn’t shoot the guy dead.
scary -you may be right.
it still didn’t stop her from lying and falsely arresting him though.
The police lie??? NOoooooo
the woman is an hysterical chickenshit who should lose her job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pathetic.
And cops wonder why so many people hate them….
I guess she proves just how stupid you can be and still keep your job. She tells him over and over that he’s being recorded and then she lies on the very same recording.
and yet, she still has her job. nothing to see here folks.
And she blames him no less. This from her facebook page:
“If you believe that blacks are NOT accusing white America for their problems then you are missing the point of the riots in Ferguson and the chronic black racism that far exceeds any white racism in this country. I am tired of black peoples paranoia that white people are out to get them. I am tired of hearing a black racist tell me the only reason they are being contacted is because they are black solely because I am NOT black.”
— Officer Whitlatch on Facebook.
Seems in some cases, black people’s paranoia is completely justified. Ever heard of DWB? A lot of white people haven’t but I guarantee every black person in this country has.
Heard of it? I’ve been busted for RWABG (riding with a black guy) while the driver was busted for DWB!
yeah, i saw that. i wish i could cyber bitch slap her ass!
Serves him right. Since his chosen lifestyle is to be black, and to flaunt it on a city street, then he got what he deserved.
Seriously, he’s a 69-year-old vet. I hope he sues the police department.
Yes, how dare he be black in public, and flaunt it in the presence of a white cop? I hope some attorney takes his case pro bono.
Everyone knows “blacks dont play golf”…
Or do they??..:)
And if they do, they do it too often,(the President)
Or better than white people, (Tiger Woods)
Lee Elder might argue with that sentiment.
Now I have to Google Lee Elder..:)
He blazed the trail for Tiger.
Reading his Bio right now…first black guy to play the masters in 75…
Thanks for the heads up on Lee Elder..
Not being a golf fan I had never heard of him..
I learn something new here everyday~!
I’m not a golf fan either, I know about him because I’m old.
Ya couldn’t be much older than me…:)
I can’t tell, since I don’t know how old you are.
ok, since you said that… yesterday i wanted to sell 3 sets of golf clubs to the pawn shop as my son out grew his, and my husband passed away 8 yrs ago. so, i went in told the manager what i had (i’m black & he’s white) he said they do buy them and asked me who did they belong to? in a tone that offended me as if to say, black people don’t golf so where did i get them from. well, the girl (hispanic) who worked there, she and i went to my car (didn’t sell to them by the way) to look at the clubs and she and i both started laughing at his ignorance. what an idiot.
“do they belong to you”?…
As if you “lifted” them from someone else?..
Just a word of advise, never take anything to a pawn shop..
They will never give you a fraction of what anything you have is worth.
they are robbers.
yeah to both questions. and i took them first to the driving range where my son had a membership and had them look at them first because they were old. the guy there told me after researching, one of the clubs would only sell for about a buck and change the rest he would take off my hands and use as loaners for the other golfers that didn’t have clubs. so i wasn’t expecting much. still have 2 of the sets. 1 of them i took to another shop and got 15 bucks.
Good job for laughing, we can’t treat these types like their accusations are valid.
nothing else i could do really. how do you respond to ignorance in “certain” situations. this one, she and i both just had to laugh.
I wish there was something we could do to embarrass or educate them, but that has very little chance of happening.
It wasn’t a total loss, you got a good laugh out of it.
What would he have said if it was a tennis racquet??
I know, right? Looks like he’s been taking lessons from our “uppity” president. And whoever heard of a black guy attending and graduating from Columbia and Harvard, and then growing up to be president? Something fishy there.
Good thing he did have a full bag of “clubs”..;)
That would have brought out the MRAP and the entire SWAT team
They going to demand someone put their cane down?
The female cop claims ‘you swinged the golf club at me as I turned the corner”…(she was in her car)..
What kind of threat was that?
That grocery bag he was carrying looked pretty dangerous too. Never know, he might put it over her head and force her to inhale.
I did not see him swing his golf club, and even if he did, she’s in a car, how is that a threat? A golf club is a weapon? So I guess she’s be threatened by a wheelchair, cane, walker…
And cops still think we should just respect them. It’s long past that point.
Thanks for your service..
How about if we all write in and demand that she lose her job. This thing should not be an authority to the public because she is an obvious racist and this is where white privilege comes into play.
Until we collectively start demanding that these overt racists be fired from their positions, America will continue to be mired in racist hate at its highest levels.
