    American police.................again

    'Stop! I’ve done nothing wrong': Nurse shares police video of 'crazy' arrest

    Is this story big in the US ?

    It shows an amazing belief by the police in might being right
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    I don't know what that means, "might being right."

    It is a training issue. The nurse though hit the jackpot and sure to be very well compensated.

    I saw it on the tv news and suspect all the cop haters will do their best to play it up.

    "Might" as in strength or authority, being correct.
    You know, like having the biggest arsenal of nukes ?

    1. Yes, quite big, I just saw the recorded segments on two different network news shows.

    2. Here I'm not sure what you mean. The officer has been suspended, though currently with pay, we will see what happens from here on.

    Obviously I wasn't there, but from the recorded material he seems to have been completely wrong and the nurse right.

    It did seem to me, however, that she "freaked out" somewhat unnecessarily, she should kept her cool, but then again, I wasn't there.

    To paint all police with the same brush because of one idiot - Ok, several idiots, this one just being the most recent - seems a tad unfair to me.

    Would be a bit weird naming the thread "Russian police........again"

    Sorry, no one in the U.S. saw this story. We're all watching the hurricane coverage which is the only news on any channel right now.

    That story broke before Irma was even a ripple.
