USA: Confessions of a Former Bastard Cop


“Do not talk to cops and never, ever believe them. Do not “try to be helpful” with cops.”

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – from personal experience here in the UK, being arrested, enduring questioning where I used a word the cop did and had it turned against me, followed by a night in a cell and months of investigation:

Tell the cops NOTHING

Cops are NOT on your side. Ever.

Don’t believe me? Listen to a law professor

I have slept with

Germany’s justice ministry has drawn up a change in the law which would require mothers in certain paternity cases to reveal who they had slept with.

The precise wording of the new paragraph states that the mother would be obliged to provide information to the man on “who has lain with her during the conception period”. BBC

Why can’t they be more explicit?

I have slept with women with whom I have not had sex.
I have had sex with women where I have not fallen asleep. (honest!)

Surely the law should – without the assistance of lawyers – be as explicit and precise as possible?

(and how the hell is the man going to know when the conception period is?)

Male? Guilty until proven innocent

Men accused of date rape will need to convince police that a woman consented to sex as part of a major change in the way sex offences are investigated.  

… police and prosecutors must now put a greater onus on rape suspects to demonstrate how the complainant had consented “with full capacity and freedom to do so” Telegraph.  

This is scary. Anonymity for the accused MUST go hand in hand with this frankly stupid action.

Big poops only!

Saskatoon has become the first city in the world to ban dogs under 5 pounds (2.27 kg) because they are “noisy, annoying and not really dogs.”

“The actual by-law bans any dog with a bowel movement under 50 grams (1.7637 oz.),” says Elaine Pinscher, SSPCA Vice-President of Spaying, Neutering and De-Worming. “So dogs are being banned because they don’t shit big enough? Hell, a Newfoundlander can plop a small one now and again.”

Top killing tip

Do not kill anyone famous.

The parole board said the murder of the famous British musician and former member of The Beatles “devastated a family and those who loved the victim”.

Very obviously if the person IS famous then you CAN devastate the family AND those that loved the victim.

If they are not famous? Well screw your opinion.

Obama runs Sweden now?

“If Sweden has agreed to rendition two people – Swedish citizens or not – to the United States of America within the context of what’s known as extraordinary renditions, this affair goes far beyond the questions about the formal due process. In such a case, it’s necessary to ask how much the Swedish governments’ promises are worth, when they promise to not extradite people to countries where they risk torture or death. This is a question that’s current and relevant in other cases, for example, regarding the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.”
