Default What is wrong with the police in this country?

What is wrong with the police in this country?

My girlfriendís sister was arrested for drunk in public leaving a party.

The scenario sounds cut and dry and yes she shares some of the responsibility of the events that occurred by placing herself in bad position. Here's how the evening panned out and what she explained to the officers:

She was at a party of some good friends two blocks away from where she lives. She arrived after work in her car and decided to stay the night if she got too intoxicated. As the evening progressed some other people arrived. At around 2 AM she asked her friend to stay the night and sleep in the quest bedroom. About an hour later she awoke to find herself half undressed, her blouse removed, and her panties pulled partially down with two strangers (guests of the party) standing in the room awkwardly quiet. She jumped up and ran out.

Having the foresight not to drive and being only two blocks away she walked. As she got to her house two cops pulled up and asked her if she had been drinking to which she replied yes. She explained the entire situation, but the officers were not to be bothered. They simply focused on the fact that she was intoxicated.

They asked her to perform a breathilizer test, which she refused. Then they arrested her.

Has it got to the point in this country that police officers see the world so black and white that they canít distinguish when someone is truly in a dire situation. Granted she partially put herself in the situation in the first place.

I mean is the police force so obtuse that the only way it can perform properly is by a strict code of law where gray areas no longer exist?

Can the police no longer be left to make an educated judgment call without referring to the code of law to make the decision for them?

Any opinions?

She should have pushed to have the cops investigate a potential attempted rape.

I can't believe they gave her a DIP in front of her house.

I can't either, and yes she explained having been undressed, but to no avail.

It's pretty crappy too because this will effect her job!

I wonder if there's somekind of formal complaint she can file? Someone put up the Batman beacon for DY/Fuzz.

Maybe your sister shouldn't have gotten plastered in the first place?

She went to the party with a plan in the event she got too drunk.

Well she's not my sister first off.

And yes she shares some of the responsibility, I already said that. But she decided to stay instead of drive if she drank too much, then things went bad, she panicked and then got arrested, instead of help.

Your mentality is the same that if a woman dresses sexy, it's her fault if she's raped.

I would go with her to the police station. Talk to the man in charge... explain the situation to them... See what they can do...
I have a feeling there may be more to the story that you know or what you have told us.. But could there is a chance that there isn't..
I know some police can be d1cks first hand..

She lives two hours away from my girlfriend and I, and yes I said she's needs to go to the police station and file a complaint.

These are the facts I was told and in my heart I belief her. She can turn into a firecracker that I know.

A good friend of hers from UVA is a lawyer now, who will handle this in court.

Anyway I'm not looking for sympathy for her, I just can't trust most of the police anymore. They're like robots or something completely devoid of how to interact with normal citizens. "You broke the law let the judge sort it out"

I've been pulled over waaay more times than anyone should in their lifetime and I can honestly say that only 2 of them where ever respectable.. (thatís less than 2%) The others were complete asses. This is why I am afraid of the police... Not because I did anything wrong but there are too many of them out there that are not good cops...

No...wearing a tube top doesn't make you lose control of your body...voluntarily drinking yourself into a stupor does.

Responsible drinking doesn't mean pass out where you drink instead of driving

In my experience, cops are just like *gasp* people. There's good one's, there's bad one's and some are just moody. If you start to judge all of them based a couple bad experiences, odds are you're just going to make things worse when you do have to deal with them because you're automatically on the defensive.

If that is the whole story than they are douches for arresting her. Lets see, she is responsible enough not to drive home, but tries to walk, at 2 am no less, and gets arrested. Any cop worth a lick of salt would have investigated the incident and escorted her home.

The problem is far too many people have had these experience with cops. Its not just isolated incedents anymore.

That is true, but there are just so many bad ones that it's hard no to judge them all.

To the original poster - the only solution I see here is physical violence.
