Why is it so hard for some people to just shut up?
Some people are using this video as anti-cop propaganda. I see an officer acting in an incredibly professional and even patient manner. He's doing his job. He follows the rules. He tells his name and badge number when asked.
A little skateboarder calls him a dick. To his face. Twice. He gets locked up. Legally. Good. The kid could have done two things to not get locked up (and I'm purposefully ignoring the skateboarding is a crime issue): 1) carry ID, 2) don't call a police officer doing his job a dick.
If the San Francisco Chronicle is to be believed, the officer has been assigned station duty while the matter is being investigated?! That's a crime. The officer did nothing wrong. Now that could have been me.
