North Carolina Deputy Snatches Two Phones, Fails to Snatch Third, as she Handcuffs Man for no Reason 303

By Carlos Miller

As a drill instructor in the United States Marines, Natalie Barber learned she can get people to do what she wants by yelling at them.

And that technique probably still works for her today as a deputy with the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office.

But it didn’t work Saturday night when she tried using it on Carlos Jaramillo, a former United States Marine combat instructor and longtime Photography is Not a Crime reader.

Frustrated that he didn’t obey her unlawful orders to “put the phone down” as he was recording her from his front porch, she ended up snatching the phone and handcuffing the 35-year-old father in front of his wife and kids, then snatching his son’s phone when he tried recording the detainment, injuring the teen’s hand and damaging his phone.

But she was unable to snatch a third phone belonging to his wife, which his son picked up and began recording from behind the screened door after his own phone was snatched.

All three clips survived, proving that Barber lied in the incident report, posted below, where she accused Jaramillo of “being aggressive” and “causing commotion and distracting me from doing my job.”

But the commotion only came from her and it only started when she refused to accept Jaramillo’s government-issued Veterans Affair card as identification, insisting on seeing his drivers license.

However, Jaramillo wasn’t driving and he was under no obligation to provide her with identification in the first place considering she had no reasonable suspicion he was committing a crime.

But Barber wasn’t about to let the law prevent her from exerting her authority.

After all, this is a woman who has already earned a reputation as being “mace happy,” according to a North Carolina commenter on Facebook who recognized her from a shortened preview video I posted last night, adding that she was locked in a cell and beaten by inmates when she worked as a guard in a New York prison before moving down south.

The incident began over a dispute with a neighbor over dogs as Jaramillo explained in an email:

We had new neighbors move in next door a few weeks ago and they have a puppy, they tend to leave him out all day in the fenced in yard adjacent to ours. Since we have a Akita that is very territorial we have spoken to the neighbors twice and asked them if they would be so kind to bring their dog inside so we can let ours out so they don’t hurt each other though the chain link fence or to please look before they let their dog out to ensure ours is not. We do not want anyones dog to get hurt.

When i arrived form work around 6:30pm my wife informed me that the neighbors dog had been out all day without food and water, she had not been able to let our dogs out and felt bad enough to give the neighbor dog a pent butter sandwich, he appeared to be very hungry from what she told me. I went over to speak with the neighbors for the 3rd time regarding the same matter as before. She pretty much told me she could leave him out all day if she wanted to, i explained to her that i did not what her dog or mine to get hurt to please pay more attention. She want having it so i just said, next time ill just call the law and animal control and walked back home.

Aprox an hour later an Onslow county deputy rang the door bell. My wife came out to see what the problem was.

To the best of my recollection this is what what said.

Deputy: Do you know why I’m here?

Me: Not a clue

Deputy: Well the neighbor called and said you had a problem with her dog or the dog being out all day.

Me: I told her what me concerns were and how i did not want any dog getting hurt, mine or the neighbors and how i told the neighbor the same as well as next time i will just call the law and or animal control.

Deputy: She is renting the property and has every right to leave her dog outside as long it is not barking and in violation of the noise ordnance.

My wife: The noise is not a problem, is that we can’t let our dogs our in fear that he may hurt their dog if he gets to close to the fence or jumps it. And their dog being outside all day without food or water.

Deputy: If your dog jumps the fence then you are responsible.

Me: I know that and that is what we are trying to avoid, we love all animals and will hate to see any of them get hurt. If my dog jumps the fence, i know i am responsible and liable. Once again, that is what we are trying to avoid ma’am.

Deputy: If this is problem of neglect the simple call animal control.

Me: That is exactly what i told the neighbor.

Deputy: Ok good, now i need to see one of your IDs.

Me: Sure no problem but why?

Deputy: Because i have to do a report.

Me: Good to go, i will get my ID but just know i don’t have to give it to you i choose not to.

Deputy: Raised her voice. Yes you do! Get me your ID card.

I noticed things were about to go south real quick so i told the deputy “I’m reaching I’m my pocket for my phone”

Deputy: WHY I DONT NEED YOU TO CALL ANYONE!

Me: No, I’m just recording this for my safety.

The video picks it up from there where you will hear Barber say things like “for my safety, put the phone down” and “no need to record this” and  “I will take everybody’s phone and I will take everybody in.”

The video ends up with a much more professional deputy arriving and sorting it all out, even though there really wasn’t anything to sort out until Barber lost her temper.

Jaramillo, who was placed in the back of her car with his hands cuffed behind him, was released with no charges.

He complained to her supervisors, but they told him that Barber was justified in her actions because she was in fear for her life.

Call Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown at (910) 455-3113, ext. 4000. More numbers here.

UPDATE: Listen to Sheriff Ed Brown as he tries to encourage Jaramillo to come into his office so he can obviously intimidate him into backing down.

  • Brad Wesley

    I hope he sues. On a side note, his neighbors have no obligation to coordinate their dogs outdoor behavior with him.

    • Carlos_Miller

      They know that. They are not the ones who called the cops. They were just asking the neighbor to be courteous.

      • WeWillSueThem

        They are lying our dog is always well feed and has plenty of water… That is just what they don’t want our pup to have. We will sue them over this. I am documenting them just as they are us, and I promise you the court will side with us. We also have plenty of witnesses to their nasty behavior.

    • Maitiú

      I’d document the dogs lack of food and water and possibly shelter. Call animal control everyday and they will eventually come take care of it.

      • TheFlashingScotsman

        Absolutely. Shoot video of the pup without food or water for a day, and call animal control. People who don’t care for their animals are almost as bad as out of control cops.

        • ST

          The neighbor can also shoot video of an uncontrolled dog. What nonsense is that where they cannot control their dog because their neighbor has their dog in a fenced area on their property? What is good for the goose….

          • TheFlashingScotsman

            I hear you, it’s a sad day when someone has raised their dog that badly. But without proof of mistreatment, nothing can be done about that. Ignorant people will just say, “It’s an Akita, they’re naturally mean.” Which is nonsense. But if you don’t provide food and water for you dog, that’s an easy violation to prove.

          • Steven Capps

            Being territorial is an instinct not poor raising. All they were was being courteous to avoid a possible incident.

          • ST

            Sorry, but it is bad training. You can make all the excuses you want for them, but they are way wrong. You can’t ask anyone to “watch out for my dog.” That is their job. Apparently their dog is too much for them to handle. And this is coming form a very territorial pitbull owner. I don’t ask my neighbors to walk across the street or not leave their dog out. That is beyond crazy.

          • WeWillSue

            I have read a whole lot of the nasty post placed on the website in regard to this situation. And I want to set the record straight since News 9 did not. Those of us who live in the neighborhood and witnessed what happened before Mr Jaramillo’s family began to record had stepped forward. I am the neighbor this whole situation began with. So let me set a few things straight because this is all very nuts. Mr Jaramillo lied about more than a few things to make himself look a certain way. He lied when he said, He has a good relationship with us, because he does not. I was home when the news man came by, and he did not even attempt to verify any of this with me. This man and his wife have done nothing but try bulling my family, and I to the point we are trying to get a restraining order against them. And we have only been in the neighborhood for a little over a month. On this particular evening, I did not call the police to come out on Mr Jaramillo but I am glad that they did come. He was spotted trying to find a way to look inside my home. My husband is currently on deployment, and he has been coming to my door very aggressive. It is me and our two children here and I do not feel safe with him as a neighbor. This whole situation began because he has a dog he has been fined a few times for attacking other dogs and/or humans. When we moved here they asked for us to accommodate them with watching our puppy being by the fence when their dog is out. We said no problem when they explained why. Than it turned into them wanting for us to keep our puppy in at all times so they can bring their dog out. Which is not fair for our puppy at all. The responsibility of their dog is theirs not ours. Our puppy should not be denied the freedom to be in our own gated backyard because they have no control over their dog. Nor do they seem to want to take responsibility. We tried working with them and noticed that they really never bring the dog out anyway even with us trying to keep our puppy in. Mr Jaramillo came over yelling at me for my puppy being in our own fenced in backyard. I reminded him that dogs need fresh air and exercise, and he began making threats. He was saying, don’t ask him for nothing if his dog jumps over my fence and rips apart my dog… He became even more hostile than pervious encounter’s. On that evening, he before recording yelled in the officer’s face and was just as aggressive toward her as me. She also asked me for my state i.d., and I provided it without a problem. He also cut out the video when he was trying to resist the officer and yelling at her and the backup that came to assist. Since this situation all happened, they have become even worse in their behavior. Bring out a gun to intimidate us, placing a camera on the side of his house that looks into our backyard, and having that camera facing into our backyard. I had also caught Mr. Jaramillo parked outside of the police station on the day I went to turn in my written witness statement. They have started arguments with other neighbors for cutting my grass while my husband is deployed. Another neighbor has or may also still have a restraining against the Jaramillo’s because of their behavior. With all this man does and has done, he surely knows how to work the system. I do not understand how people like them can be on the street. I do not feel safe with these people as neighbors but I can not allow them to run us out of a home we love. I am trying to place a restraining order against all of them to protect myself, our children, and my husband. They are truly a nightmare. Everything they have done is documented and I have made sure to report it to the authorities. I feel terrible for Deputy Natalie Barber and all she has had to endure. This monster of a family has placed her in great danger only to keep themselves from going to jail as they rightfully deserve. And as far as how he used to be in the military from what I was told, he was dishonorably discharged. That part I am not sure how true it is, but the way he behaves I would not doubt it. And if you watch the video it has been cut and edited. I only wish I would have recorded the whole situation myself so you could see jut how much they falsified the situation.

          • JAMES “SGT. ROCK” WHITE

            In this out of control Police Officers Report she wrote that she was dispatched because of a Neighbor dispute. Now I know that Carlos didn’t call, and You are trying to claim you didn’t call, which means the Officer Lied and the Dispatcher lied, and they both falsified reports, logs and made a bogus dispatch Call recording ? I don’t think so. Since you are lying about not calling the Police, what else are you lying about ? Just wondering.

          • jerfyjeff

            “On this particular evening, I did not call the police to come out on Mr Jaramillo but I am glad that they did come.”

            the police on the scene and the report state that they came to your home because you called them. soooo, you’re a liar. nothing you said can be believed.

        • The Neighbor

          Our puppy is very well taken care of. These people just want us to keep our pup in the house all the time.

      • Pragmatic Liberaltarian

        What makes you think the dog in this case lacked food, water, or shelter?

        • TheFlashingScotsman

          I read the story.

          • ST

            So you heard one side? Got it Judge Dredd.

          • TheFlashingScotsman

            And the Akita is vicious. Because you heard one side. Got it.

          • ST

            Exactly, thanks for showing that you were wrong for hearing one side.

          • TheFlashingScotsman

            Your logic is quite convoluted. Go over in the corner and talk to yourself, I’m done with you.

          • ST

            The hypocrite says what?

        • Vince

          You didn’t read the article, did you?

        • ExplosiveJim

          I agree, my dogs stay outside during most of the day and they eat food inside and their water under an awning so it stays out of the sun, to a neighbor who doesn’t want to control their aggressive dog, I may look like I don’t feed or water my dogs. If your dog will jump my fence and attack my dog it needs to be on a leash or line if you want it outside.

          • Charles Batchelor

            It didn’t say what conditions there were for the dog other than it didn’t have food or water all day. Either way that would be something for Animal Control to check when they come to investigate. If there was indeed food and water then nothing will happen.

          • Whine Aboutit

            “to a neighbor who doesn’t want to control their aggressive dog”

            Jim, this is the same thing I gathered after reading this article.

            “If your dog will jump my fence and attack my dog it needs to be on a leash or line if you want it outside.” – Exactly right!

          • TheSuingNeighbor

            I posted the full story on this site, and he removed it. So I have had to repost it under different post as a reply. If you want to know both side. You can find my response under some of these comments.Our pup is very well taken care of.

          • The Neighbor

            This was exactly my point to Mr Jaramillo.

        • The Neighbor

          Again, I am the neighbor this involves, and I do not appreciate the extended bullying this man has caused. We do not abuse our pup. He does not lack food or water. He is outside when we are home. We do not leave him outside because we do not trust the neighbors. And believe they would have their dog attack or kill or pup. He is not neglected by any means.

      • The neighbor

        I am the neighbor…. Our dog is never left without food or water. And I should sue them for smearing our character just because they want to control when our dog comes outside and doesn’t in our fenced in backyard. Our dog is only outside when we are home…. And he is always left with plenty of food and water… WE actually refresh it throughout the day. We are also always outside in the back with him playing along with our two kids.

    • Mj

      the arrested man was trying to prevent his dog from eating the other little dog.

      • Brad Wesley

        Yeah I know, but he ought to get his dog under control or build a taller fence. Of course, that is an aside to the fact that this horrible bitch cop abused her authority and is a liar.

        • Difdi

          Many places have laws about how high fences can be. Those limits are often well below the height needed to keep a dog like an Akita confined.

          • LoisB

            Yep, even a six foot fence is no match for a determined Akita. We have one in the neighborhood (fortunately he is well mannered) who comes to visit us every few weeks. He snaps metal cables, digs, jumps fences, anything. They’re very good at getting where they want to be!

          • RWR4TX

            Then they either need to install a wireless electric fence, (Home Depot has them for about $100, $200 for the heavy duty ones designed for larger aggressive breeds, and that will keep him from going over the fence if installed correctly) or secure the dog with a chain, etc.. If the person who moved in next door has a fence that will contain her animal, and these folks don’t, then they are being discourteous 24/7, as the neighbor has the right to leave her dog inside her fence without fear that Jaramillo’s dog will hurt it.
            If someone else’s dog gets in my fence with my dogs to hurt them, that is a dead doggie.
            Despite all that, Jaramillo was courteous to the cop and her behavior was pure BS, and I too hope they sue her.

          • Charles Batchelor

            That all nice and good but the dog issue isn’t the problem here nor really the topic. It is the back story that caused the main story.

          • CS Moseley

            I used to have a Britney Spaniel, who would climb chain link to play with kids by the street. We put in a wireless electric fence and he climbed the chain through the invisible one, yelping the whole time and took off, leaving my dad livid that the fence he spent time putting in failed to work. I don’t remember what my parents ended up doing. I think eventually he just got too old to climb it.

          • RWR4TX

            We had the same problem with a pitbull. went and got the heavy duty version, and once he figured out the pain was caused by proximity to the fence, we never had another problem.

          • Canary in the Coal Mine

            The problem is that many dog breeds are not kept in the ideal environment for their breed that can lead to a lot of issues.

          • RWR4TX

            True.

          • ST

            Too bad so sad for them. They need to control their dog. I have a dog aggressive pitbull and don’t worry about that nonsense. If my neighbor’s Akita was free and in my yard, it would be confiscated hopefully before I unknowingly walk outside with my dog leashed and don’t notice it.

      • Fotaugrafee

        That doesn’t really matter. The answer to that issue is to buy / train / raise a less aggressive dog.

        • Canary in the Coal Mine

          I think that just as important is to buy a dog and keep it in the best indoor and outdoor environment for that dog. Which is why when I moved from a large fenced in yard with double fencing and a dog run to a small backyard with one fence I left my German Shepherd with my ex and bought a small dog that wouldn’t/couldn’t try to eat my neighbors or their pets…so when the dog was out during the day I had no worries.

      I hope he sues her Bonding Company and has a Lien placed against her Bond, so she won’t be allowed to work in the public until the Lien is lifted and paid off. This is how to remove abusive police officers from the streets. You don’t sue the City, County, or State because only the taxpayers are punished by having to pay higher taxes, you Sue the Bonding Company these cops purchased their Bonds through. if there are enough lawsuits against their Bonding Company their Bonds which is their Liability Insurance Policy will be dropped.

    • Ifreeman2u

      That’s right people have all sorts of legal rights that avoids the moral right to respect another and live with your neighbor.

      • ST

        And their legal and moral right is to control their aggressive dog! I have a pitbull and don’t worry about that nonsense, and my dog is very dog aggressive. We have an Akita next door that is left out on a chain. If she ever gets loose and attacks us, which she seems to try every day, it will be the last thing she does. I don’t worry about my dog as I control him, I worry about everyone else’s dog that may try to start a fight that I, not my dog, will finish.

        They have no right to terrorize their neighbors with their aggressive dog.

    • Ifreeman2u

      As that the legal right works both ways. I’d be sure to call animal control when the “good” neighbor’s dog is left outside without food and water.

    • mj_fromla

      No they don’t. But when people are good neighbors they work together and they aren’t dicks.

    Gosh, I feel sorry for that cop. She’s obviously severely disturbed. Mental problems.

    On a positive note, even if she’s not discipled, her SO and other officers will see this video and see what a trainwreck she is. So that’s a good thing.

      And they’ll probably applaud her for “handling the situation appropriately”. #rollingeyes

    • organicroseski2

      Do not feel sorry for her. She may be severely disturbed and a bully; but, may get great joy in being a jerk.

      • nrgins

        I feel sorry for anyone who acts like that. It means they have some serious personal problems, and I feel sorry for them. But please don’t confuse my sympathy for her as a person with an acceptance of her actions. Her actions were inexcusable, and she shouldn’t be in law enforcement at all.

        • organicroseski2

          Agree.

  • Kirkus1964

    Yeah, this is complete BS, and Mr. Jaramillo should sue, BUT one has to question WHY his dog is so vicious, and WHY he expects his neighbor to let her dog out on his schedule.

    • Joseph Murray

      Akitas are mean dogs. Very bitey. Great if you’re inside thier family circle/pack, but very aggressive to anyone outside.

      • Kirkus1964

        Then maybe people who choose to have an aggressive dog need to live where they don’t have close-by neighbors.

        • Pragmatic Liberaltarian

          If he has an aggressive dog, it’s his responsibility to control it. If someone trespasses on his property and gets bit, that’s their responsibility.

          • Kirkus1964

            Doesn’t sound like anyone was trespassing here.

          • Pragmatic Liberaltarian

            Doesn’t sound like his dog was doing anything wrong either.

          • Kirkus1964

            I didn’t say the dog had done anything wrong, but clearly Mr. Jaramillo was very concerned that it would, given that he asked the neighbors to let their dog out on his schedule. If his dog can’t be trusted with a dog in an adjacent, fenced yard, then it would probably be best for him to live where he does not have close neighbors.

          • Pragmatic Liberaltarian

            Or otherwise control his dog, like I said in the first post. There are lots of ways to control an aggressive dog that are not nearly as drastic as moving to the country.

          • Kirkus1964

            Sure, but it seems like he wants to the family next door to accede to his wishes regarding letting their dog out. He need to find his own way to get it done…or move to the country.

          • Fotaugrafee

            Exactly, he was worried about HIS dog scaling the fence into the neighbor’s property. It’s like a child, just because they don’t have the sense not to, doesn’t make any less your responsibility.

        Akitas, like PitBulls, end up with the temperament that their owners give them. I’ve had Akitas in the past, and they are gentle and loving animals, if they’re raised that way. Just like the Pits that people are so scared of.

        Saying Akitas are mean is a lot like saying Black people are lazy. I can show you plenty of examples to prove you wrong.

        • Joseph Murray

          Unlike humans, dog breeds are often bred into existence to emphasize certain characteristcs. ‘It is territorial about its property, and can be reserved with strangers’…’They are known to be intolerant of other dogs of the same gender, as stated in the AKC breed standard’. -Wikipedia
          Certain traits are inherent to the breed. Not all individuals conform to them, but you ignore this fact at your peril.

          • TheFlashingScotsman

            Well, my Akitas weren’t AKC, they were from Japanese stock. AKC has a habit of screwing up breeds beyond recognition. Still, people often fear certain breeds, and for no good reason. Most Pits are wonderful and affectionate dogs also. But if raised to be mean, they’re mean. Just like any other animal. Including humans.

          • Joseph Murray

            So you’re just going to ignore the fact that pits regularly KILL people, huh? Just bad publicity I guess.

          • TheFlashingScotsman

            Chihuahuas would kill many more people than pits if they had the physical ability. I guess you haven’t personally known very many pits, have you? Or Akitas?

      • organicroseski2

        I had an Akita. She was actually two faced. The dog book I looked at said nothing. of aggression. She did like all people and other animals at first, then when she matured she appeared to be nice to animals, until I looked the other way. She did have a favorite dog friend.

    • Difdi

      Probably because dogs that are not territorial don’t make good guard dogs.

    • William Burke

      Did you read the story? If you did, you’d know that the neighbors’ dog IS OUT ALL THE TIME.

      • Fotaugrafee

        OK, which means that because Jamarillo owns a piece of property next to him, maybe he needs to accompany the dog out to shit / piss / get a drink of water / etc. rather than just leave him out where he believes the dog will become a menace…

        …in addition to reporting the neighbors for leaving their mutt outdoors all the time.

        • William Burke

  • kyle

    Sadly, I believe Terry V. Ohio allows an officer to search and cuff anyone for the broad reason of “Officer Safety.” It’s a common rationale that’s being used to the extreme in precincts and cities across America…
    Now then, based on the investigation — of animal cruelty — it seems unreasonable for an officer to use this kind of tactic in a non-violent affair. Basically, using her rationale, she could cuff anyone she comes into contact with.
    Obviously, the cop got pissed because someone didn’t bow down and lick her boots.

    • Pragmatic Liberaltarian

      Your understanding of Terry is incorrect. If the cop has a reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a
      crime and has a reasonable belief that the person “may be armed and
      presently dangerous” then and only then may the cop search the person for weapons. In this case, the video and report states clearly the officer had no belief that any crime was committed. She states that she just needs to identify him for her report. Even if the officer had reasonable suspicion, there’s no reason to believe he was armed and presently dangerous. And, even if both of those existed (neither did based on the video and report), there was still absolutely no reason to keep him in cuffs after having done a search for weapons and finding none as she clearly states he was not under arrest. Terry is not a green light for cops to stop and frisk anyone whenever they feel like it.

      • JdL

        Terry is not a green light for cops to stop and frisk anyone whenever they feel like it.

        Terry is of course often used, especially by New York cops, as a green light to stop and frisk anyone to is guilty of Walking While Black and similar nefarious behavior, but at least on paper, it is as you say, not legal to invoke without some identifiable reasonable suspicion.

  • Jerry Bushman

    I have no problem for an officer to do what it takes when he/she is in fear of her safety. They are taught to use that reason all the time. When she stated she was in fear of her safety because of the cell phone that was a lie. The cell phone limited her superiority. She was in charge and felt everyone had to do her bidding. She had no authority to require a drivers license because no one was driving. In fact, you are not required to even have a DL. All he was require to do was to identify himself by name not ID. He gave he a government issued ID and that was more than she needed. For her superiors to support her gives us more reason to fear the police. This is the attitude that is allowed to continue and people are going to get killed for it.

    • Pragmatic Liberaltarian

      You nailed it. The only “crime” here was questioning her authority to make him produce a DL, which he had no legal obligation to do. She became completely unprofessional and rude after that and then kept escalating. Needs to either be retrained or fired.

      • LREKing

        I’m guessing lack of confidence on her part. She really needs to reevaluate her career choices.

        • organicroseski2

          It appears that she is a bully a feels comfortable being so. She is a bully and a liar–great personally for a protector of the public. I have known these types. A different career with same personally, just makes for miserable co-workers and lying to get the bosses favor.

      • Guest

        “Needs to either be retrained or fired.”

        Not enough. Needs to be charged and prosecuted.

      • kraz

        IMO there’s no retraining that would fix this kind of behavior by cops. People can’t be trained into not being power hungry bitches. They can’t be trained to not lie. They can’t be trained to not abuse or kill people. These are issues that can only be dealt with by firing them and imprisonment if the circumstance calls for it.

  • Necron 99

    Cops can talk to me through the screen door, and I can close the main door when they make unreasonable demands. Done it before, after seeing this should they show up at my door of will happen again. I called the constable whom know personally about someone dumping trash bags along my property and when he came we talked thorough the screen. He was polite and helpful and solved the “case”.

  • michael92064

    This is why one Police department in Texas require’s their officers to wait 72 hours before filing a report. They want to see if discrediting evidence shows up. Additionly to the fear for her life baloney she also embellished the conversation. If her chief does not find that to be an issue, he should be replaced.

    • TheFlashingScotsman

      Lack of respect for the law comes from the top.

    • LREKing

      Human memory being as bad as has been documented, I would think waiting 72 hours would introduce additional inaccuracies into the report.

      • JdL

        Human memory being as bad as has been documented, I would think waiting 72 hours would introduce additional inaccuracies into the report.

      I find it ironic that many people leave the military because they grow tired of it and especially when they come back from combat after seeing death, misery, and destruction but then they join the police and then see death, misery, and destruction again.
      I agreed with you Mr. Roberts. If cops are so scared of getting shot especially after being in a combat situation, they should have not become cops. They seems to forgot about that even when they watch TV police shows and reading books and magazines about cops.

    • G

      I find it ironic that people leave the military particulary having been in war seeing so much death, misery, and destruction plus being shot at, and they join the police to see more death, misery, and destruction plus getting shot at. It seems that they forgot about that part of policing when they join up.
      You are right, Mr. Robert. If people particulary military people are afraid of getting shot or assualt, then they should not join the police force.

    Idle question: which is more out of an out-of-control, power-hungry, pushy, nasty, law-breaking would-be tyrant: a male cop or a female cop? I know, there’s thousands of contenders from both genders, but as bad as the men are, the women seem WORSE. Is that possible??

            . That men are avoiding marriage in droves nowadays.

          • JdL

            OK!

            On men avoiding marriage, I entered “Young men avoiding marriage” into google and got 3,770,000 hits, including the following:

            There’s lots more links.

            On the term “the gentle sex”:

            http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gentle-sex
            “women in general …Usage note: This is a dated term”

            This is less than I’d hoped to cite; it seems there’s a movie with that name which fills pages on google. Would you like me to search for more?

            On the assertion that there are lots of nasty woman cops: if you like, I’ll review the last 30 columns on this site which involve allegations of police misconduct, tally the number of women cops vs. the number of men cops involved, look up statistics on the ratio of women to men cops in the workforce, and compare the results. Just say the word. Do you have a guess as to what the results will be? I do (always admitting I could be wrong!).

            (The Free Republic Website describes itself “Free Republic is the premier online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web.”
            Claims “Fewer young men in the US want to get married than ever, while the desire for marriage is rising among young women, according to the Pew Research Center. ”
            But, that’s not actually what the Pew Poll says. Here is a direct quote from the study “Most unmarried Millennials (69%) say they would like to marry, but many , especially those with lower levels of income and education, lack what they deem to be a necessary prerequisite — a solid economic foundation.”
            The other part of that article cites an opinion piece by Suzanne Venker. It’s just that, an opinion piece, not claiming to be factual.

            http://www.henrymakow.com/why_young_men_are_avoiding_mar.html
            It’s an opinion piece. Not a factual citation.

            http://www.uominibeta.org/lettere/why-men-increasingly-avoid-marriage/

            Is another opinion piece. It does vaguely cite a study by Carl Weisman, who wrote a book called So Why Have You Never Been Married?: 10 Insights Into Why He Hasn’t Wed.
            However, the basis for Weisman’s study was interviewing 33 men, and a website questionaire. Weisman’s own data says that over 60% of the men want to get married someday.

            So, my quick review points strongly to the fact that people are marrying later in life, not that they are “avoiding marriage”.

            And yes, “gentle sex” is a dated term. There is a good reason it fell out of use. “but sometimes perceived as condescending to women.” Funny how women don’t like to have men condescend to them.

          • JdL

            Funny how women don’t like to have men condescend to them.

            Funny how so many women don’t hesitate for a moment to act condescending toward men, however! But that’s supposed to be ok (“just suck it up”), while any example of men needling possible foibles of women is unacceptable to the PC crowd. But I’m doing what I said I wouldn’t do any more in my reply to you below, so again, my apologies.

            So, my quick review points strongly to the fact that people are marrying later in life, not that they are “avoiding marriage”.

            If that distinction has any meaning (I’m not getting married but I fantasize that I might some day == I’m getting married now), then I give it to you.

    • ENTWAFFNUNGDERGESTAPO!

      Good question.

      I think most would agree that female goons are worse, although the discussion can vary greatly. Who uses lethal force more? Excessive? Who has more contempt for law? Who makes more false arrests. Who is the better accomplice?

      Even agreeing on terminology can be problematic. Recall that the subject under discussion should not be regarded as human, IMHO. Hence they can not be regarded as men or women, and while they may qualify as some sort of life, the gender need not be defined (sort of like hyenas).

    • Voice-Of-Concern

      I find all the casual misogyny posted on this board tedious and misplaced. Among other things, it makes this site too much of a “boys club”. which is a shame. I see women as equals, in everything that matters. They are just a bright, just as moral & just as capable as men, in the vast majority of circumstances in our current society.. Of course, they are also just as capable of being wrong, morally bankrupt & inept as men. But I really feel gender based hostility is at best immature and counter-productive.

      This site is Photography is not a crime. It’s not a Right wing thing. It’s not a Left Wing thing. It’s not a men’s issue or a women’s issue. It’s not atheist or religious.

        I find all the casual misogyny posted on this board tedious and misplaced.

        OK, sorry I pushed your button. For the record, I love it when a woman takes on any challenging role she’s capable of. My daughter-in-law has an advanced degree in molecular biology and uses it to earn big bucks, and I couldn’t be happier. I also would like to see more women (normal women, not cops) concealed-carrying, to blow away any would-be robbers or rapists who consider them tempting targets.

        I don’t consider pointing out that there are lots of nasty women cops, or that men are running away from marriage en masse today, to be “misogyny”, however. On that point we can agree to disagree.

        • Voice-Of-Concern

          If you areC that men are running from running from marriage, because women are bad.. that kinda sorta sounds eggzactly like a textbook definitions of misogyny.

          Misogyny /mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/ is the hatred or dislike of women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including sexual discrimination, denigration of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification of women.

          Furthermore, I don’t buy your assertion that “men are running away from marriage en masse today”, whatever that means. I would however, be interested in seeing studies that back up your claim. It sounds like exactly the sort of thing that Grad Students would love to write about.

          You see, while I do think you believe you are being Truthy, I don’t think you are being accurate.

          • JdL

            I cite some links above, which are among several million on google.

            In your mind, is asserting that men are avoiding marriage more than they used to, the same thing as “denigrating women”? Or one of the other bad things that are part of the definition of “misogyny”?

            We ARE getting way off track of the purpose of this site, and I’m the fool who made the original post that started this, so if I’ve offended anyone, I’m sorry. I’ll try to stay away from any observations about men and women here in the future. In case it matters, I do think that for every foible or fault of women that anyone can cite, there is probably at least one corresponding fault and foible in the male gender. Ditto for strengths.

          I’m actually serious. Why do some folks on here feel like it’s perfectly okay to casually denigrate women on the one hand, then question why people feel safe to abuse power, on the other hand? It’s actually part of the same problem.

          Calling folks out for their actions?
          Perfect. It’s why this site is here.

          Calling folks derogatory names, based on their sex or gender identity, sexual orientation or race or religion?
          That’s called bigotry. Bigotry drags us all into the mud & distracts us from promoting the Right to Freely Photography & Video, in Public.

          Being a naughty little boy who uses bad names is childish. I don’t care about how the officer might feel about being called names. That’s not the point. Anyone who is paying attention should see that.
