Cop stop study data veiled in darkness

I am assuming there is a ton of information they are not disclosing and totally agree with JCSD and JustWondering. It is hard to give an opinion with a little piece of the puzzle. However, I can give testimony about how I witness a cop operating in South Park. I do not think he profiles ethnic groups to stop a car, but the treatment and punishment is totally different when they see who you are. This cop jumps out of the car asking what did you have to drink first and hoovers around trying for a DUI. When he sees that you are not drunk he would make up something to give you the ticket (punishment) and that goes base on your ethnicity and gender. When I asked why I was stopped he said that I did not stop at the stop sign. When I said I did not agree with that and explain why he said "well, you stop like in the middle of the street" so did I or did I not stop? When I went to investigate his modus operandi I took pics and film his location. When I finished I crossed the street and a little compact car stopped right by the stop sign because I was crossing. To my surprise the cop followed the car and stop it, I waited for her next block and asked if she was ticketed. She said the cop wanted a DUI but when he found out she was not drunk then brought up the fact she did not stop at the sign. I told the woman that was a lie since I saw her stopping and told her that I could witness at court if needed but my surprise came when she told me that no ticket was given to her, only a warning. This is a $600 dollar ticket that an imbecile wants to give you just because you had a bad luck going through the wrong street and because you do not have big boobs or you are not a cute woman. I work in City Heights and live in South East and they are always stopping both Hispanic and Black young brothers. Our communities are sick of these people abusing their authority! In City Heights, last year a friend who is a lawyer had a case where a black fella called to report that he lost his key so he had to break into his house. 15 minutes later the police was at his place with a broken neck! Shame!! so Yep, Vanilla white Mayor ... Yet, not all cops are dirty, rude or out of line... Kudos to many good SDPD officers who are not taking advantage of people and respect communities. Shamus you are so right, this needs to be clear up and we have to move on. I hope people who has gone through the same as me get their money back.

I Blow Smoke on Your Law

Kudos to the 70% or so of well educated smokers that do not littler and that respect others' right to breathe clean air, especially, children and old folks! Come on guys a little of common sense here! I just can't believe the huge ignorance of smokers that complain about their right s to screwed everyone around them; since when is ok. to have 230,000 + cig butts in our beautiful West Coastal Beaches? (Coastal clean up 2005) There are more groups all around the County proving that there is real need for these kind of rules since there are hundred of thousands of cigarette butts tossed everywhere. Why don’t we recognized that and start telling our fellas smokers not to litter? LaPlacaRifa48619 (lol! Chilo el nombre) for reminding everyone that respect is a two way street. Thank You! No one wins by getting upset and confrontational, what are we chimps? The good news is that as long as you keep disrespecting yourselves, the environment and the community, smoke free laws will be coming our way and there is nothing we can do about since non-smokers up numbered smokers by far, plus about 30% + of smokers will vote yes if they see that there is a need to protect the environment and what comes with it (see our council member Fry in SD) Start by buying your butt holder and by smoking away from people. Who cares if you are in a good area away from others to enjoy your smoke and someone gives you the dirty looks. Bottom line… the solution is on someone’s hands, and that my fried is on smokers hands so please hold on to your butt and enjoyed yourself away from kids, people and dirty looks. It will be all right! I promise. fz10bee
