    Sounds like a cop on an ego trip. It happens. Power corrupts.

    If thats really how it went down, that female cop needs to be stripped of her badge, I don't care if she does have 6 years under her belt; her job is to serve and protect, not harass and intimidate.
    I find it hard to believe that they didn't do anything to provoke this, but the fact that they ultimately weren't charged with anything really makes it sound like a bad cop. Theres gotta be more to the story, but if not... thats one lady who really shouldn't have a badge.

    Tresspassing on a public street? How the hell does that work? :confused: 

    Sounds like they've got somebody who really shouldn't be a cop.

    It definately sounds like there's more to the story, especially since it's a one-sided one.

    Also, a note to the people who say it is one sided:
    That is true, however I can't see it being justified in any way. They were released without charge, meaning that there was no reason to arrest them in the first place.

    Serve and protect? I call bullshit on that.

    No offense to honest cops out there but this is the reason people don't trust the police anymore.

    Directions to I:95 from Camdion Yards? Um, you can see the highway from the stadium.

    I know from personal experience Baltimore has some horrible cops. Many are bigots and abusive but that is sadly the norm in lots of areas for police. I got a ticket for 'illegal right turn on red' where upon they cuffed me for 3 hours and illegally searched my car. I was on I-95... there are no red lights on a 4 lane interstate.

    After they destroyed my personal belongings and allowed the drug dog (who found nothing) to tug on his leash and bark furiously as if it were going to eat my babies, they let me go.

    I fought the ticket in court and no one ever showed up to testify... makes me believe it is just straight harrasment.

    While a majority of Cops are honest, most of the honest ones turn a blind eye to the immoral or disgruntled ones which makes them just as bad.

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/local/bal-md.lost18may18,0,4774896.story?coll=bal-local-headlines

    I will have to agree on the 'how do you get lost and not find 95' but the 'they probably buying drugs so I busted them' is an attitude of police. They BELIEVE you are doing something but can't prove it so they bust you on BS and hope to stumble onto something.

    But if the kid did say the :

    Then that was agressive to the cop and they will get shitty ASAP

    It is totally possilbe to get lost and end up somewhere a local couldn't fathom you ending up. It also goes against the entire spirit of every free justice system in the world to arrest someone and treat them like that an suspicion of intent to buy drugs. If you have reason to suspect that they have drugs in thier possession, then arrest them for it and search nicely. If you find nothing, apologise profusely and let them go.

    More to the story for sure, but the couple did their stint and "paid their debt".

    I think the city should let it go.

    The couple if things went as they claim should fight 'til the end, if they actually got off lucky, they need to shut the hell up.
