Police think laws don’t apply to them. Far too often they’re right


Levainathan t1_jefdz1o wrote

Pun intended?


throwawaytrash6990 t1_jeg7q4l wrote

I swear to God every time I go into a thread to make a pun someone’s already done it. I’m starting to get angry. Do I need to become a father to make dad jokes faster or something?


Syrdon t1_jegta95 wrote

From your other comments, it sounds like you may have two issues that need handled separately.

First, it sounds like you feel like it takes you a while to come up with good puns (or at least applicable ones). You can speed that up by training your brain to think of them, which really just means practicing coming up with them. I recommend starting by just trying to slip them in to regular conversation as often as you can. You don’t necessarily need to actually use them, so long as you go through the process of thinking “how can i sneak a pun in to that sentence” fairly frequently - but you should, because the point is to enjoy the suffering of people who didn’t get to the pun first.

Second, you need to get to the reddit thread early. That’s best accomplished by sorting by new and then living on reddit. You should not do this. You should accept that there is someone more addicted to reddit and let them have the dubious honor of being first. Instead of beating them, let them win, read their comment, and take your time to think of what other puns they could have gone with.

Then you should respond to their comment with the better pun they didn’t take the time to think of. After all, the fun really is in the punishment of others.

As stated before I’m just a little stupid. Increasing speed isn’t an options. I also can’t live on Reddit.

I guess I got just go have some kids I’m not gonna take care of and become a father brb. This reason is honestly better than most peoples for having kids. I just wanna make people laugh.


Syrdon t1_jegxfcs wrote

Trust me, this isn’t about being smart or stupid. Dad jokes are just like any other skill - it’s entirely about practice. Dads just have the advantage of having frequent targets for their puns.


No-One-2177 t1_jeh4116 wrote

I respect your in-depth analysis and coaching for them on the subject. Dad jokes are a key ingredient in the complex ecosystem of reddit threads.


DelightfulAbsurdity t1_jegytxd wrote

Absentee fathers don’t make good dad jokes.

Nobody is around to hear them.


throwawaytrash6990 t1_jeh3kgv wrote

Only one way to see if you’re right. Two if you happen to know where my dads at nowadays.


Levainathan t1_jegq6ob wrote

You need either a “father” achevement or “had a father” achievement and only then youll passively have a 70% of making dad jokes everyday

TL;DR version is the law required the NYPD to "disclose information about its current and future surveillance technologies and how it wants to use them."

The NYPD responded by filing reports that were "general and not detailed, leaving the [Office of the Inspector General for the NYPD] unable to conduct an audit and assess whether NYPD’s use of surveillance devices complies with its IUPs and report any suspected violations."

And what does the DOJ do with people doing unlawful behavior these days? Test for who it is first? Kick the can down the road when it's the better sort of people doing unlawful behavior?

I am not an historian but I don't think the constitution includes cop shops as the fourth branch of government.

Upvote for "an" historian.

Because he used an correctly lol?


oasis9dev t1_jegfrax wrote

you do realise it's not incorrect to use "a historian" if you pronounce the h, like pretty much everyone in my country does? it sounds weird if you force an on a consonant and also if you force a on a vowel. it depends how you pronounce the word.

see also: sauce. turns out americans tend not to understand where "give me the sauce" comes from. it comes from the fact that many people pronounce "sauce" as "source". there's no difference between the two. seeing memes about how sauce and horse can't rhyme makes no sense to me or anyone around me. nobody here says "soss", bc then you can't say "what's the sauce?"


Furthur_slimeking t1_jegmakw wrote

In RP English it used to be viewed as "correct" to say "an historian", even though the "h" was always sounded. It's not the case anymore, but you'd hear newsreaders using that style up until late 90s/early 2000s.


Boo_Guy t1_jefqs0z wrote

So what's the penalty for not complying? Is there any? If so is anyone going to enforce it? Will they charge anybody?

I'm going to guess that there's no penalty and/or no enforcement so it's actually just a suggestion, not an actual law.


nbfs-chili t1_jeg187l wrote

I would think if they tried to use evidence obtained this way, it would be thrown out.


Telid t1_jegld6m wrote

It would be, but parallel construction remains legal. Aka. they can use facts obtained illegally to go find evidence they can justify by saying they could of found it in the first place, and then hide the fact they got the original evidence. If the court or the defense only know about the 2nd facts and not the first, they cannot challenge it.


TheinimitaableG t1_jefe7x6 wrote

The police acting as if they are above the law? Say it ain't so Joe.


Youvebeeneloned t1_jefqmbb wrote

Nothing new... NYPD is probably one of the WORST for following the law. They literally were running a illegal surveillance shop in NJ spying on Muslims after 9/11 which produced ZERO leads, and cost millions in both running the unit, and the settlements that followed when NJ state, NJ cities, Muslim groups, and others sued them.

Listen once you let them be the judge jury and executioner without trials why in hell would they bother listening to any other laws?

If extrajudicial killings are given the thumbs up tech laws most certainly can get fucked too.

So what happens to an employee who refuses to follow the law at work while performing their job duties…say in banking, accounting, finance…etc?

Why are these “employees” of NYC and the State of NY any different?

And people wonder why many are skeptical about our justice system .
