Police officer arrests firefighter.

News at 11.

Now, here at Spec Ops., we have had a lot od debate about the limits of police and their actions, from the Hope Steffy case, to the officer in Baltimore going after a skateboarder. I'd like to throw this out for discussion.

thats outstanding. i hope the cop gets fired or thrown behind a desk. i personally hold firefighters/medics in very high regards and believe that they are one of the few professionals out there that you can trust and always do their job correctly. so it really rubs me the wrong way to see them bothered DURING A FREAKING EMERGENCY CALL!!! for all i care, the firefighter could have shut down a block during rush hour-if thats what they need to control the situation, let them do it.

These sort of disputes need to be settled when the emergency victims are safe.

Also, I didn't know cops had the authority to arrest other emergency response personel while said personel are responding to an emergency.

I've known and met some very professional police officers, but there are some who are incredebly arrogant and aggressive.

I think this is hilarious.

Why? Because in every other story we've had, there have always been questions like, "Well what's the other side of the story?", "We don't know the conditions." Here, we see the conditions in plain daylight, and watch the whole event, from start to finish.

Kind of hard to defend, eh?

wow..

thats is just incredible they would do such a thing.

--------

that reminds me when a city police officer hit a car, (his fault) and of course other city cops came to the scene, they were writing up the person who was hit by the officer up and giving them a ticket.. then State Police finally showed up (like they were supposed to) and alot of the city police officers got in trouble for doing that. Why? Because they can't take statements or write up anythin about a scene that involves a city employee. A state employee has to do that.

It's common knowledge that the Fire department sets the protective perimeter when on emergency calls.


Edit -- So I thought.

The police officer wanted the fire truck moved to allow another lane of traffic to be opened. The Fire Dept Captain said it stays where it is to protect the guys working.

The cop arrested the fireman and then gets himself fined for doing so.

I know both were in the wrong, especially the first one. But, we shouldn't do to many of these because we will start to generalize all cops as wrong and corrupt which is simply untrue.

A better idea of the first one.

Well, these are beginning to generalize all cops in general... This happened in Salt Lake last year. But how many times do you see these posted?

That was also a year ago, so why would we see that posted recently? These threads rarely last over a month. I'm just pointing out that this is proof positive police are fallible, they can make mistakes, and that while they are agents of the law. When it comes down to the core, police are still men with guns, who you hope will do the right thing.

I would like to know who told you that police are IN-fallible ... :dodgy:

No seriously... You are right cops, are human and make mistakes... this video looks to me like the cop's ego got the best of him (you really should not arrest someone that could save a life at an accident scene... eeegh).

In my experience it is a difficult struggle to find the right balance of understanding vs. action in an emergency situation. And you know what? Some times you just have a bad day at the office, you know?

Being a cop is hard, man. People love you and then people hate you... it's a real roller-coaster ride... like dating a hot-girl.
