    Why is it so common for police officers to escalate a situation instead of diffusing it? It’s like they’re looking for an excuse to crack skulls. Every city in this country needs citizen oversight of its police force so that unstable officers aren’t permitted to act with impunity, which is what happens when law enforcement is left to govern itself.

    I guess he was in mortal danger of having snow drip inside his jacket.

    Yes, I know, you’re going to cry “racism”, but look. A black professor acts like an idiot and Obama says the white cop was the one acting stupid. Here a blg bully of a black cop threatens snowball throwing kids, who are just having fun, with a GUN and even shoves one around. A white kid.

    If this was a white cop doing this to black kids, the shriek of “racism” would fill the air for weeks over this incident and those two phony black “reverends” would be sucking up more publicity.

    My point? That black cop is a white hater and became enraged because it was WHITE kids who threw the snowballs at him. Do we have any “reverends” of any color willing to stand up and say this? Yeah, when pigs fly.

    @Western1

    You say it’s wrong for society to automatically scream racism when there is a white police officer committing brutal acts, yet automatically assume just because some pissed off cop gets in a white kid’s face he’s a “white hater.”

    Clearly this guy is just angry in general, turning this into a race thing is not necessary.

    WHAT? Typical DC cop. Good dam thing the DC citizens are completely unarmed. Will our current dictator get the citizens and the cop together for a discussion over beers? Will he declare the actions of the citizens racial, or just stupid?

    BTW, the cop gets hit with a snowball, while standing in the street blocking traffic, by a tall black person on the left (notice the mannerism and color of skin). “You going to jail! You going to jail! You going to jail!” On what grounds, what charge, and that would turn into kiss my ass pig!!! He has no proof. What? Has the pig got a freezer in the hummer to save the evidence? Dumbass.

    As for criminal mischief, or assault on an officer, I say BS. Until the officer can pick the proper suspect, find a witness that will testify, he has no case.

    I loath stupid cops. These guys just mess it up for the rest of the citizenry. Another example of the good things to come under the current administration.

    Maybe it’s PTSD and this snowball fight reminded him of something he dealt with in Faluja.

    Let’s get the facts straight. On the video that was posted, it was the black guy (next to the other black guy in multicolored striped hat) that threw the snowball at the officer on camera. One of these guys is seen and heard laughing as well. Let’s not turn this into a race issue. It’s one thing to have a snowball fight and another to throw snowballs at a car-and then at the person when he gets out of the car. The detective was wrong to draw his weapon. The uniformed officer had his drawn based on reports of a man with weapon. Most of the crowd was just having fun, but then you have a few people-detective included-acting like morons-including those throwing snowballs at vehicles. People love their cars and treat them like a kid sometimes. The detective should have called it in and have the uniformed officers quell the fight.

    I hate snowballs. In today’s society there is no need for the average citizen to own or carry a snowball. Tighter snowball control? I’ll go so far to say ‘ban snowballs’. That is the only way.

    Clearly, this guy is a horse’s *ss. He pulls a gun, then a black guy hits him with a snowball (wathc the video). He then picks out some random white guy from the group and hauls him off to jail. I dont know whether he is a racist or not but I do know that if the colors were reversed then it would certainly be protrayed that way. So if that is the way the game is played then….game on…. He is a racist. Lets see if they fire him for it and make him take some counselling. I carry a concealed weapon. If I pull my gun out anywhere, anytime, without my life in danger, then I would lose my right to carry one and would likely go do some jail time. How come this moron should be treated differently?
