You: And yes, COPS normally don't lie, as when they do and they're caught, they lose credibility within their own department and the charges will be dismissed.
Me: And kids on the Honor Committee at UVa don't normally lie either. They get expelled.
You: This incident didn't occur on U.Va property but off campus, so it's still irrelevant.
Me: (several back and forth comments summarized) It's fact that the Honor Code applies off campus, and especially when he identifies himself as a student, which he did. So if caught lying to police, he CAN BE EXPELLED BY THE HONOR COMMITTEE HER SERVES ON.
So you changed the goal post to the Virginia Penal Code, but I never referred to that - from the beginning I was referring to his risk of expulsion if caught lying, which is FAR worse a risk than any penalty he'll face from these BS charges.
First of all, the only 'law' he broke was not behaving like a good little sheep, kissing the boots of the ABC idiots. And of course it cannot happen to good people, until it does. I imagine Johnson or his family ever imagined an honor student, on the honor committee, student leader, would be bloodied by police while breaking no laws either. But it happened, and you're defending the cops.You want to be stupid and resist arrest, that's your right. Please by all means do that and let us all know how it works out for ya.
I doubt it, as the people I care about don't break the law. If there was actual abuse I'd support and help sue and take those people down. If this happened say to my nephew and not Johnson, I'd probably tell him he was an idiot and to straighten up as well as tell him he was lucky he wasn't shot.
The accusations of racism weren't based on a lie. I guess like most people who dismissed the DOJ report, you didn't read any of it.You brought up Ferguson, I brought up how the accusations of racism and "hands up don't shoot" was based on a lie, just like the accusations of racism by many now are a lie.
You're really bucking for that authoritarian label. That wasn't just 'something.' They stopped the wrong guy, and instead of admitting it and sending him home, they beat him, charged him with destruction of property for bleeding on him, when sued by that person, the department with approval all the way at the top manufactured another BS charge of assaulting an officer, a YEAR AFTER HE WAS BEATEN. So this was sanctioned from the top, and the cops who did this to him faced no penalty. That was one incident. There were many more - it was a department that thrived on abuse of authority, from top to bottom.Dig deep enough in any police force and you'll find something someone did wrong.
