The scary thing about is that several cops that I know would not doubt it from them.

The town I grew up in had a reputation for keeping the streets clear of undesirable charactors back in the 1960s. It turned out that drunks and other street people were given a free ride out of town to a smaller town about 8 miles away by the midnight shift. One night the officers from the smaller town caught the officers from the bigger town dumping a couple of drunks out. The mystery of how these people were showing up in the smaller town was solved. Words were exchanged and guns were drawn on both sides. There was no violence and I think the bigger town found another place to ship the street people off to.

This happens every day in most cities. City cops dump the people in the county and visa versa. I was just talking to some police officers I had lunch with yesterday about this. THey had some funny stories about diong it and having the person show up back in the city 10 minutes later when a county cop would do the same thing back to them. The funny part is one of the cops knows both of the guys involved in this incident that the post is about. They told me the story as they had heard it.

Two officers accused of fighting each other during call
By Darren Lyn
ABC13 Eyewitness News
(3/20/04 - PASADENA, TX) — Two Pasadena police officers are accused of getting into a fight while on duty. The problem is, says Pasadena police, they're accused of fighting each other. Both of those officers are now suspended with pay.

They're accused of getting into a fight last Saturday while responding to a call. But a source inside the Pasadena Police Department says the situation got way out of control and says the officers drew their guns on each other.

At about 9:30pm last Saturday, the Pasadena Police Department says two officers responded to a call to the 2,000 block of Leroy near Eva. Witnesses say one of the officers criticized the other, which led to an altercation between the two.

The argument didn't end with just words. A source inside the Pasadena Police Department says the two officers pushed each other, then one drew out his baton, while the other pulled out his flashlight.

It may not have ended there. A source inside the Pasadena Police Department who did not want to be identified said the fight between the two officers got so out of hand, that they are reported to have drawn their guns on each other. But the police officers' association says those are only allegations at this point.

"They are just allegations," said Office Bobby Keen with the Pasadena Police Officers’ Association. "And until the investigation is completed by the department and internal affairs, they're just that -- allegations."

Officer Keen says both officers are being represented by the organization while they are suspended from the force, but says there is no conflict of interest.

"Both officers were appointed to or offered legal representation through two different attorneys, so they should get fair representation," said Officer Keen.

While the police officers' association is talking about the incident, administrators with the Pasadena Police Department are not. They declined an on-camera interview with us.

We have the same problem where I live. Except it's city people dumping their unwanted pets. Thankfully for the sake of humanity the results aren't the same when unwanted people are dumped in the country (IE they're shot). I know a lot of people who'd like to shoot the dumper rather than the dumpee.

My cousin's an officer on Milwaukee's force, and she/he's (I'm not saying, just in case...) admited to doing this as well. However it's a bit more targeted, and it's all within Milwaukee proper. No real "exporting". The rationale is to save the time for transporting, booking, and all associated paperwork on "real criminals", or to get people out of a certain area before something serious happens.

He does it to someone who sets off her "spidey sense" and has an address a fair distance from where he is now, no good reason to be there. (civil libertarians, yeah, yeah... I know...)

- Suspected of looking for a hooker, he takes him where the winos are.

- Wino's go where the hookers are, as wino's have no money and hookers won't give them the time of day.

- People trolling for drugs, either goes to the wino's or the hooker's block, depending on the situation and the person.

I don't know if that's more of an indictment of her, Milwaukee, or just urban life in general, but it's darn funny to hear him tell it, at family get togethers.

Yeah, now that ya got the couriousity level elevated, lets hear it.


On the other hand, I have never heard of officers around here squaring off, but do know of "Oklahoma extraditions" that have been performed. Sometimes just took to county line, and had the next county pick them up, and keep going.:D

Leatherneck,

He bobbled back and forth with him/her quite a bit. I thought I caught him slipping up too... nope. Totally inconclusive.

That is a neat idea though. Drop the drunks off by the hookers, drop the Johns off with the drunks.

cordex, so, one time, at gun camp. . .

After a long hard day at gun skul down Atterbury way some SEAL pups went into the city to have some fun and peruse the young and nubile in a tactical manner. IPD comes along with "what's all this then?". The macho mambo ensues.:uhoh:

The Marion County PA and Ferret Face were not amused. USN were not amused. IPD and MCSD definitely not amused.:D

Only amusement came from intel squirrels. :scrutiny:
