The more I watch this show, the more I realize I’m probably going to be Phil Dunphy in about ten years
2 CHAINZZZZZZZZ YASSSSSSSS
Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
but do they got kik tho
Can we trade police forces?
Notice something in common in these photos?
It’s not what you think
I gave it away in the third pic
That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…
This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.
This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.
The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.
A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.
I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.
At this point, I hesitate to even call them cops. Like, this is the same thing as a bunch of guys(who happen to be in law enforcement, but tehy aren’t on duty because they aren’t wearing their identification) going around throwing people in vans and arresting them, beating them and acting like thugs. Actual thugs, not the people who they claim are acting violently and irrationally. This is exactly what the second ammendment was DESIGNED to protect against - infringement on our other rights by an uncontrollable and corrupt government force - and yet the people of Ferguson are being touted as overreacting hoodlums because they’re people of color.
I just. The fact that this is still allowed to go on - that it was allowed to go on beyond the FIRST officer taking off his badge and name tag. Is disgusting and sad.
