The only counter argument that could be made is that the SCOTUS decision that provided final clarity on the warrant requirement (Birchfield) was only decided a little over a year ago, but that's a weak argument. This officer displayed remarkable bad judgement.

Good on the hospital, basically giving the finger to cops and siding with their employees and patients.

Calling Nurse A 'Hero,' Utah Hospital Bars Police From Patient-Care Areas

Quote:
The Salt Lake City hospital where a police officer roughly arrested a nurse who was protecting her patient's rights in July will no longer allow law enforcement agents inside its patient care areas. They'll now have to check in, rather than enter through the emergency room.

"Law enforcement who come to the hospital for any reason involving patients will be required to check in to the front desk of the hospital," said chief nursing officer Margaret Pearce of the University of Utah Hospital. "There, a hospital house supervisor will meet the officers to work through each request."
Get fucked, pigs*!


*obviously, I don't mean all cops, just the ones that would do shit like this.

Good. Absolutely no reason for them to be in there unless the hospital requests their presence.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

I'm not sure if that requirement would always be possible, or a good thing.

If an inmate is in need of medical treatment at a hospital, a prison guard would normally accompany them to the hospital. If that guard is now required to check in at the front desk, you've potentially got an unguarded prisoner.

Obviously, this was a completely different situation. It would seem there must be a better way to deal with it.

oh, good point. Not just an inmate, just about any police encounter with an armed and dangerous criminal may land the criminal into a hospital. With no police allowed in the hospital, the criminal can definitely wreak havoc while the paperwork is being completed with the hospital administrators. Oh, well, I guess after a few nurses are murdered by the criminals, maybe they will find a middle ground policy-wise.

That is specifically why I said that it would be up to the hospital to ask the officers to come past the desk. No more officers assuming they can do whatever they want in a hospital just because they are cops.

I assume the hospital would know a prisoner would be coming in for medical treatment and the accompanying guard would easily (and logically) be cleared.

I'd argue the Utah nurse had a better chance of being shot by the cops than by most criminals she's had to deal with. She wasn't respecting their authoritah, after all.

Cop destroys a legal BBQ
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...treet-BBQ.html

The cop is now under investigation which means he might get paid vacation. Even if the cop thought they didn't have a right to BBQ he could have told them to finish what was on grill and then pack it up. Instead he pours water over the BBQ like a real hero.

Cop points gun at driver for not turning on turn signal.

Driver didn't have a record. Cop never gave a reason for why he pulled his gun.

I don't know if this is the case for this incident, but if your windows are tinted too dark, the cop will tend to have his weapon ready until you lower your window. The driver may not notice that he is invisible to the cop therefore a possible threat.

I was stopped for a seat belt violation, and the trooper kept his hand on his weapon as he approached. I completely understood why given the animosity toward police.

I recently talked to a retired state trooper, and he said that the two most dangerous situations cops face are (not surprisingly) domestic disturbances followed by traffic stops.

To quote him, "There are no routine traffic stops. That kind of thinking is what gets you killed."

What makes me mad is that the confiscation is supposedly legal.

You really have to wonder what guys like this say behind closed doors when you see the kind of things they think are appropriate to post publicly on social media.

I hung out a couple of times at a cop bar that a friend took me to. Some of the things that were said in conversations that I overheard and participated in were disgusting. Never went there again.
