A Cop and Contestant in a Pagaent
I don't watch beauty pagaents. But it's always fun to read about them the day after. There was a time Donald Trump was involved in them. I see that idiot Perez Hilton was somehow involved in judging this one.
The runner up in the Miss USA pagaent is a 21-year-old Vista High School graduate, who is a San Diego Christian College student now.
She is claiming she lost out to Miss North Carolina because she didn't have a boob job.
Okay no, she didn't say that. She said it was because of her answer involving the question about same-sex marriage. She said, "We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."
Now, I have so many problems with this answer. First, her thoughts on the subject bother me. But I can let that slide. People under 25 usually feel the same way their parents do on issues.
But her saying "opposite marriage," in ref. to a man and a woman, sounded odd. And, don't they train the hell out of those women to say the politically correct thing? What was she thinking?
It's hard for me to have sympathy for her if this answer cost her the title. Who cares? Pagaents are so idiotic, and I feel they do a bit of harm in society. So, if you drop the batton during the talent portion, you slip on your high heels, or you give a stupid answer...yeah, it may cost you. Get over it and stop with the sour grapes.
Now, on to the cop in PA (I abbreviate states now...especially them there long ones...I can't rely on my lame spelling and typos getting other publications all riled up).
He was drunk (allegedly) at a bar, and someone was filming as he talked about a recent victim of a shooting. He was laughing and carrying on, and even seemed delighted in the fact that the mom had to ID her son and screamed.
Currently, this cop is on paid leave. I have no problem that he's being paid while an investigation is done. But ya know what? They should wrap the investigation up within a day or two. It shouldn't take much longer for them to view the video, ask him for an explanation. And really, the only acceptable explanation I can think of right now, at 1 a.m. is, "I was talking about a scene in this movie I saw last night." Because, if he's talking about a real case, there should be no question that he get axed. (and as strongly as I feel about that...I also feel the police have no need to settle with the mother for ANY amount of money)
Cops already have a bad PR problem (as we...uh, saw in a previous blog). And they know the rules (when it applies to things like posing in Playboy or doing advertising with the uniform on). And in this day of video, they need to learn (even if that means this guy is a 9 year veteran, with an impeccable record) the hard way.
And for all these posters that claim we need to train cops on how to deal with kids that have toy guns, or old guys that may have weapons but should be talked and reasoned with...I instead think the cops need a few days of training that deals with people skills.
I've heard of cases where a guy is handcuffed, and saying dumb crap like "Your mom was great last night," or "You think you're so tough?" And the cop gets mad and maces him.
Now, as I said...I have no problem with cops shooting people in the back that try to flee. I think society would be better off.
But I do have a problem with a cop having someone in custody, and instead of ignoring and booking them, they get into a shouting match or their ego is bruised by some ranting and taunting.
If a cop can't handle that without blowing his fuse, he shouldn't be a cop.
