    Umm....

    Nicolas told NBC Miami that he started filming after the officer who pulled him over took the keys out of the car's ignition and opened the door.

    A video of the encounter was posted to TikTok last Thursday, and has been viewed more than 75,000 times.

    In the video, Nicolas tells the officer that he was on his way to work.

    “No, you’re not going to work,” the officer says. “You’re gonna give me your driver’s license.”

    Nicolas said he was driving his mother’s car and was having difficulty finding his driver’s license and the vehicle’s registration.

    The officer tells Nicolas, “Give me your driver’s license, registration and insurance. If not, you will not be going to work today. Simple thing, man. This is how you guys get killed out here, man.”

    I have to admit that while I am pessimistic about the future for a lot of reasons, we have seen some improvement in what happens when cops shoot people. A Grand Rapids (MI) cop has been arrested (and publicly identified) for shooting and killing a black motorist. 10 years ago we probably would have had only the cops version of what happened, and he would not have been charged. 5 years ago we'd all see cell phone footage but it would still have been unlikely the cop would be charged. Instead we are now beginning to see these idiots (at best) charged for their gross negligence (again, at best it is negligent) and even seeing quite a few convicted. When enough go to prison, we will see a change.

    UK PD on BBC America is decent. I believe it's on Mon night but I watch it on Sun morning.

    I never got that vibe from LivePD. They weren't charging in, throwing guys on hoods of cars like COPS.there seemed to be a more human element to it.

    But yeah, holy wah did it put a giant ****ing spotlight on the classist differences. But that might have also been because of the departments shown. Rural Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, and Arizona is gonna be different on TV from Naperville IL, Newton MA, Bloomfield Hills MI, etc.

    And I'll echo that. I didn't watch the video for the same reasons. Cops suck. I'm very burnt out as well.

    I am NOT saying they didn't massively **** up before the guy jumped in the water. But once he was in the water, I don't think they have an obligation to put their lives in extreme risk. Again, this isn't a good guy vs a bad guy with a gun situation. It's more like disarming a bomb.

    So handy is likely right about their actions before he entered and maybe even after. If they took their time to call for backup from the FD (which usually has someone trained in rescue swimming, but not always), then yeah, that's very problematic.

    I am sympathetic that it "might have put the cops in danger" to help, but that is their ****ing job.

    And watch the video, they aren't even pretending to be concerned they are sitting around like it is between periods of a Mite Game. They didn't really even attempt to stop him and they had plenty of time to do so. I put up more of an effort stopping my cat from killing bunnies outside. He doesn't even go into the water until 20 seconds and even sits on the concrete like 10 feet in front of the cop who just asks what he is doing and says he can't swim in the lake.

    Your argument would be valid if they arrived on the scene and he was already in the water...they literally watched him run down and get prepared before going in. They obviously didn't think it was that big of a deal.

    edit: we are likely not to agree so probably best to drop it.
    I didnt watch the video, but from the description of the lackadaisical cops, they may be negligent in the lack of pre-jump rescue.

    But post-jump, if they are not water trained nor are lifeguards, the courts have agreed that they would most likely become drowning victims themselves.

    (Your lack of concern after hearing that is noted.)

    Their lack of concern pre- and post- jump (again, I havent seen the video, I'm mentally burnt out watching cops snuff the life from people in video clips on Twitter) is concerning and the cops shouldn't be badge holders anymore.




    Short answer: I gotta agree with DX and WANDH, despite the lack of effort on the cops part.

    For what? That they're not trained rescue swimmers? This isn't the same thing as charging into a school with a gunman. This is a ****ing dumbass who put himself in extreme danger and no one else. The cops would have a very real chance of being drowned along with him if they tried to save him. I don't know if you've ever tried to help someone struggling in the water, but let me tell you, it's actually part of training that you may have to basically incapacitate the person if they start to become a danger to you both. Because being dragged under is an extremely real and likely possibility as the person fighting for their life does anything they can to stay above water.

    Nah man. They aren't lifeguards. If someone climbs the side of a building, they have no obligation to scale the building and get the guy down.
