Eliot Spitzer does a face plant.


Recommended Posts

I just read that here.

 

Wow.....credibilty - destroyed.

It wouldn't have been so bad if the guy wasn't such a phony. He was on this big crusade to rid NY of corruption. He started this crusade as AG of NY than used the platform he built out of BS to jump to Governor where he continued his crusade. This is one ass hole who lived in a glass house while throwing stones. Now all we need is for this guy to take a dive out the window of a nice tall building and finish this story off nicely.

He has officially resigned.....a lot of New Yorkers seemed to have wanted this.

You can't run your mouth about corruption like this retard did and than go and do what he did and not expect to have your head handed to you. He was actually involved in busting prostitution rings when he was a DA. There should be zero tolerance for any body in law enforcement or involved with making laws. If you break the laws while you are in a job enforcing laws you are morally unqualified and undeserving of that job and should be removed immediately. When they are prosecuted they should get 3x the penalty normally handed out. 1x for the crime. 2x for committing it while they hold postions involved with law enforcement. 3x for being a piece of hypocritical crap and as a deterrent to other pieces of hypocritical crap.

So you are saying that cops shouldn't be on their cell phones (without hands free devices --Connecticut passed that law) or that they cannot purposefully speed???

If they are speeding during the course of their duties of course it's OK. They have lights and sirens to make this safe and they are doing it to help somebody.There is no violation of a law there. I don't see what this has to do with what I said. My point was if you are in a position that is involved with making or enforcing laws you need to be held to a higher standard. When they commit crimes they are no longer qualified IMO to enforce the law. They lose all credibility and have no business being in the profession. How can you possibly have anything but contempt for a person that goes around breaking the same laws he enforces?

 

As for you example about the cell phone. If the cop is on the phone yapping with his Buddie he is just as in violation of the law as you would be.

With the speeding, I mean if the officer is abusing his right just because he is a cop. Not during a chase obviously, but when he is on the main road just cruising around and patrolling. I find it annoying when they go faster than the speed limit.

 

And with the cell phones, it is either hands free (headset, etc) or no calling in CT. I've seen plenty of cops do it, and the law is on the books.

Well this is the kind of abuse I am talking about. Those cops should be fired immediately and prosecuted to fullest extent of the law and then some. They have no right to be in their jobs. Like Spitzer they have the credibility of a 3 dollar bill.

and doctors that smoke.....nurses that drink......firefighters that have backyard firepits.........car mechanics that dont bring their vehicles to the shop..........hairstylists that do their own hair.........everybody bends the rules.

 

taxis, couriers, etc. its their jobs to drive all day, and they are as a rule terrible for following the rules of the road.

 

and police are exempt from many of the same laws that other citizens are...like wearing a seatbelt, or having to be registered to carry a firearm. there are always exceptions to the rules. parking, etc.

 

spitzer made a mistake, hes paying for it. i dont see the need to beat the guy down. hes already down and will go further i am thinking.

Those examples examples of hairdressers and nurses etc are not relevant. Different all together. A nurse that smokes after seeing the damage it can do first hand is just dumb and hurts nobody but herself. A piece of crap like Spitzer who put many in jail and spent millions of tax payers money on a witch hunt on Wall Street is another story all together. His intent all along was to further his career not to right wrongs. He was a bully and abused his position all the while he's no better, probably worse, than the people he was going after. I don't see how anybody can be OK with that.

 

As for him making a mistake that is simply not what happened. A mistake is spilling a glass of water, making a left when you meant to go right. Mistakes are unintentional. He new exactly what he was doing. All the while the guy is preaching and on a crusade. Now he gets what he has been giving out and it looks real good on him. I bet the ho's are the tip of the iceberg with this terd. Now that he has been removed from any position of power watch the crap fly now.

cops are above the law...just ask them...better yet, just observe them on the highways

 

Funny timing with your comment. I just watched a movie called Copland with Stallone in it. About a small New Jersey town filled with pigs in serious need of extermination. I have no doubt that most cops are like the ones in the movie. I know of many that are for sure.

thats a very blanket statement. thats like ignorant (in the true sense of the word) people that believe that people that frequent web forums are geeky social outcasts with no social lives. just not true. there are good and bad in everything. only the bad ones make the news though. ;)

I have met too many bad ones for me to believe other wise. I am sure there are good ones but there are far too many bad ones and there are enough bad ones that making a blanket statement fits is this situation. Just so you know I am not a person that has been in trouble with the law. I have never been arrested nor do I have a criminal record so this is not sour grapes here. As for "only the bad ones make the news though" they are the tip of the iceberg there is much more that does not make the news and you know it. You have said you are police officer so you know what goes on but there is no way you will discuss it here. I have a friend that joined the local police force and was absolutely disgusted with what went on and quit the force. Dirty cops are a whole different level of trash.

I've seen nothing but absolute law abiding people involved in law enforcement. Police are recorded in the cars, in the buildings, and by the public. Judges dont believe the word of police, lawyers attempt to throw out everything police do, and the public has no respect for them. Its not a good working environment at all. But it pays good and has a great pension. Most officers couldn't care less about committing crimes-there is too much to lose, nothing to gain. Follow the rules, do your job, go home. Just like every other job.

 

I've seen much more corruption from auto mechanics, roofers, and employers that dont follow human rights and health and safety legislation. There is always two sides to every story.

There is a reason for that.

You will get no argument from me. The difference is that they don't arrest people for crimes. They are criminals and that's it. It's a whole other thing when you arrest people for crimes that you are committing your self.

I don't think spitzer arrested anyone. And the crimes that he helped prosecute encompassed a lot larger range then his alledged indiscretion with a prostitute.

That was funny audio but also a good example of police arrogance. How come there were no options for if you want them to plant evidence on you or lie under oath or beat you up for no bowing down to them.

 

Spitzer didn't have to arrest any one. He was the top law enforcement official in the state of NY as AG.He laid the charges and started many law suits as well. Google the guy and check out what he did. He was night mare on Wall Street. He did some good in cleaning up the garbage that takes place in the investment world but he was so self righteous about it and that in it's self isn't so bad but when your talking out your ass as he obviously was than it's a problem

I think the corruption you speak of is the far minority not the majority. Police routinely and daily get spit on, assaulted, maligned falsely both in the press and to police review agencies. And do absolutely nothing about it. Other then perhaps (in the two former cases) filing assault police officer charges...which usually get tossed or traded off anyways. Part of the job.....

 

Planting evidence, lying under oath and beating people up for no reason are illegal. And I don't believe that most officers break the law. And police may seem arrogant, but until you've walked in their shoes you really have no idea what they deal with on a daily basis. It's a whole other world out there.

That's the truth!

 

Some people may think of all Police officers as bad which is rather sad, yet if they're ever in a pickle and need protection the Police are the first people they'll call or run to for that protection. The Police aren't bad for questioning people either, that's just part of the routine for them to piece together what's going on.

 

Police get a bad enough rap anyway with all the negative news reports about a particular incident, etc, which I think is just a very small percentage of Police whilst others uphold the law and do their jobs accordingly. We must remember the Police forces are public servants that literally put their lives on the line every day all over the world for mere peanuts in pay, and work long tiring hours.

 

So don't disrespect them, and the next time you see a Police officer give him/her a big thumbs up and tell him/her they're doing a great job.

You would be surprised, blown away actually, if you knew the extent of the corruption. It isn't a just a few a bad apples either. It's systemic. Yes there is a lot of negative criticism toward police but believe it or not there are far too many people who think like you and this is why police can and do get away with murder and every thing else you can possibly imagine. People don't want to believe the legal system is complete joke. It's easier and more comforting to believe everything is OK. I personally know jail guards, cops, former cops, and it is definitely not a few bad apples it it systemic and it is deep.

 

Weather someone believes most cops are dirty or not isn't the reason the thread was started. The issue is that their are obviously dirty cops/law enforcement and it's a good thing when they are caught like Spitzer. I don't think anybody can argue about this. If anybody thinks that it's not a good thing to bring down dirty law enforcement than you have some serious problems. They are not above the law. In fact they should be bound by it even more than regular citizens.

Ha ha. It seems Spitzer's replacement is quite the mutt himself. Can't even count how many pigs he has slammed and paying for the motel rooms with tax payers money and giving promotions to theses employees :lol: If people only new how screwed things really were it would all fall apart. Hope to live to see the day. I will die happy :P
