She does look like some young dude with a shaved head, though.


Except for, you know, her voice and having breasts, not being bald, being 8 inches shorter and 60lbs lighter. Plus she has her hair tied back, not shaved. Oh, and she doesn't have a goatee, which the suspect description also lists.

Other than that though. -.-

.....I'm sorry, what now?

5'10, age 25-30, 175lbs, bald guy with a machete
vs
5'2, age 19, 115lb, girl with a backpack?

There's mistaken identity and then there's "What the fuck is wrong with you people?".






The suspect was repeatedly going to the store with a backpack and was carrying a hidden machette. He went to the store on a few occasions, brandished knives and attacked staff. It becomes a lot more apparent what was going on if you read the police report. It was an interesting read, actually. I am still not sure how the 5'2 girl could be mistaken for a 5'10 guy, but the backpack makes some sense. The girl was wearing a hat, so it could have been difficult to identify that she was not bald. The goatee that the suspect was mentioned as having isn't a good identifier as it isn't like you can't just shave it off, as the actual suspect did before being apprehended. The part that doesn't match with the backpack is that the girl was carrying a pink backpack, while the suspect had been coming to the store with a pink duffle and a black backpack.

unless the 115 was strung out on something or showing some sort of mental illness situation, then there really was no need for that much excessive force, some maybe, like two people showing up, but if they were "normal" then no, that was beyond the call of duty and, even though it's case per case situation, like all these things, they will look into the situation, put them on leave and address the situation person to person.

and we can seriously look at ground zero of this, I'm sorry but there's a difference between shaved head, full hair, I can see how they could have been confused, she was sort of flat chested, but my goodness, I just hope this wasn't race motivated, goodness knows we have enough of that running around in the news as it is. poor kid, I hope she doesn't develop PTSD and get some therapy help.

As a fun side fact. The county where this happened has the deadliest police force in the country. Having killed more people per capita than any other county in America:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/dec/01/the-county-kern-county-deadliest-police-killings


Stringer, a senior Bakersfield officer whose plaudits for once saving a colleague in peril had been overshadowed by his arrest for a hit-and-run while driving under the influence of prescription drugs, reached under the bloodied white sheet and tickled De La Rosa’s toes. Then, a junior officer reported to commanders, he jerked the head to one side and joked about rigor mortis.

“I love playing with dead bodies,” said Stringer.



The deaths span from January to the early hours of last Sunday morning, when a man accused of firing at officers during a foot chase in downtown Bakersfield was shot and killed. One senior Bakersfield police officer has been involved in at least four deadly shootings in less than two years. Another officer separately shot dead three people within two months in 2010. Other law enforcement officers in Kern County have meanwhile been involved in deadly beatings of unarmed men, sex crimes against women and reckless car crashes resulting in criminal convictions.


That's the caliber of officer we're dealing with here.

She has hair going on its just pulled back and they encountered her while canvassing after the initial assault. So there's no way the dude ran away, shaved his goatee, then wandered back out onto the street incognito in 45 minutes.

Besides, even if you were profoundly stupid enough to mistake a 5'2, 115lb girl for a 5'10, 175lb bald transient man with a goatee the mistake should have been apparent way way way before the beating, dog mauling, handcuffing and throwing her in the car. If you're going to pummel someone and let a police dog tear the living shit out of their legs you'd better be damn sure you have the right person.

Even if they *did* have the right guy the amount of damage they allowed the police dog to inflict is seriously questionable.

Other than the law suit that will probably happen. For those who think these officers are not getting any punishment, think again. I bet after all is said and done, those officers will be the very first ones to get booted from the PD the moment things hit the fan again. Stuff like this is not ignored by supervisors. They just don't say anything because the last thing they need is to feed the media more garbage about how police officers are evil.

Comply and you will be fine... Sounds like this kid had a sudden case of shit to the brain and started talking back to the police officer. Then when they force "her" to comply she suddenly feels like a victim. Want to not be profiled? That's easy. Dress like a upstanding citizen and not like a fing thug.

Also, it's really easy to hunch and bow your knees to drop some heighth.


But leave it to jaded leftists to demonize cops trying to do their jobs. Mistakes were made, but honestly this sounds like an asshole who got mouthy with the cops, got shit on because that's what cops do with smart asses impeding investigation (and were within their right to do so), and is now using their identity to try and get paid. "Because I'm black" is the slogan of 2017.

Let me learn you something about identity folks. NO ONE CARES. And if you do? guess what? You're racist garbage.

No I don't feel sorry for this young lady. Pretty simple, act like a fucking chump, get put into the ground like a fucking chump. As far as I'm concerned, the officer did their job well. If an officer stops you, you go out of your way to accommodate their reasonable requests. If you know your rights, that's fine, practice them. But acting like an asshole to someone who has absolutely no incentive to be a kind person other than to reciprocate your kindness is asking for some, "pain compliance".

Remember folks, we live in a land of laws. The only thing enforcing those laws is the absolute promise of violence enacted by the "State". Clearly this girls parent(s) didn't teach her how to respect authority. This wouldn't have happened if she would of just treated the officer(s) with respect. Because why respect the men that have the power and ability to put you face down in the ground and lock your ass up, amirite guys??

All of this could have been avoided as I've stressed and will stress again.

DON'T ACT LIKE AN ASSHOLE TO THE PORTRAYER OF STATE VIOLENCE AND YOU WON'T GET YOUR ASS KICKED. (disclaimer: In general.)
