I bet those cops go home at night and scream themselves to sleep in a closet.

It's either very frustrating - for the ones who really want to do the job - or it's the reason they joined, knowing they wouldn't ever have to get their hands dirty.

There are videos of the Berkeley police sitting in their cars watching people getting beat down. When asked why they weren't doing anything they refer the person to the public affairs office.


In Ferguson, the national guard was called up after days of rioting. They encamped and protected city hall while private businesses were burned. It's becoming clear that as society breaks down the police will protect the political class they report to.... they know who signs their paycheck. The public, who pay the taxes that support them, will be left to fend for themselves.

I've known, and currently know, many police officers. That 'cop' in sun glasses standing by the car, is not a police officer. Real police officers do not behave in such a manner. Look, Berkeley is a cesspool, and I'm sure it has its proportion of these types of individuals masquerading as police officers.

Maybe that's one of those " You have won a wide screen TV" setups to catch dumb crooks ( well, agitators).

Spent thirty years in the field and never heard the term "symbolic arrests". The DOJ should be in there investigation that administration.

I take their demeanor and the statement, "That would be a good question for the Chief of Police.", to mean they've been ordered not to engage and that they are definitely frustrated. The officer standing up knows that they can't air their grievances out on video like this so he refers the subject to the PAO. He seems to have more experience than his younger partner.

Yeah, I should probably have made clear that I'm not blaming the officers on the video. They are clearly under orders to sit and watch and not disturb the rioters who are beating their opposition. It's clear from their linked website that they are on the side of the rioters and have no interest in protecting the general public. It's a departmental issue.

Pretty much my take too.
I can't blame the cops when the problem is much higher up the ladder.

I double checked - what leads you to think it's not legit? (I'm sure I could have missed something!)

Go to Berkeley Police Department home page:

From the home page there is a link to popular resources:

Ah, we were posting at the same time - thanks for the verification, I was going to thump myself good for that one if I had been duped!

Yeah, when I clicked the first link, (...www.ci.berkeley.ca.us.linkis.com/WYYOU) I had some twitter link pop up and it looked like some redirect. And the image you had posted did not look like the rest of the text and links on the site, so I did a little clicking on their site and found the page. (The link appeared like the typical bogus redirect.)

Just so much BS anymore. I don't know aht I dislike more, the fact that it seems "OK" to create all the fak crap (and I don't mean "Onion" types stuff), or being skeptical of every damned thing one runs accross.

What the hell? Does that mean they'll cuff some folks and put them in a squad car just for show, then let them leave after the cameras haven captured these "arrests"?

That made my eyes pop out. "Where and when?"

Next they'll offer valet services.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual."
