The event took place a while ago but it has just come to light apparently.
victim: “U.S. soldier. KNOW WHO YOU ARE TALKING TOO.”
[wham. crumple. fall]
cop with issues: “U.S. Marine!”
[turns out the "soldier" is a combat engineer... reserves]
Everyone’s a hero when they do some time helping Goldman Sachs and Exxon rape and pillage yet another country overseas. They ALL expect to be treated differently, to be given respect.
Don’t always work out that way, does it?
Good rule of thumb “save that ‘I’m a hero. Respect my authority!’ routine for people who aren’t wearing badges, ex-marines and twice your weight”
Cop with SERIOUS issues punches an asshole because he complained about the cops taking 45 minutes to report to his B&E call. Well, to be fair, he did step up into the cop’s face after the cops took a step toward him and what happened next is pretty much what you would expect to happen.
The vet victim hit the ground like a sack of potatoes and seemed shocked that someone would treat a vet like that. What he should do is look back at the film and recall what an asshole he was.
Truth be told, the cop had no business punching ANYONE in the face in that circumstance and I hope the cop loses some pay for it so that maybe he thinks twice next time before laying out a law abiding citizen just because he was being a prick. But you and I both know that isn’t going to happen.
Enjoy the flick.
