    If this man dragging his "girlfriend" off the train like this over a disagreement everyone would be calling him a woman beating scumbag, even the scumbags defending the bully cop would be slating him. What is the difference in a cop treating a woman like this than to a boyfriend treating his girlfriend like this? Cop is a disgusting bully and should be sacked!

    I don't have a problem with this because this girl is ignorant. And I usually NEVER side with the police. But I couldn't imagine being so ignorant on a bus that I would occupy an extra seat with my feet.

    Knuckle heads. All you gotta do is comply. If you think the Officer is wrong, ask them/ him to ID themselves and contact or request a Supervisor. The law requires you to comply. Not to put up a fight and act like an animal.

    That Cop was definitely being a jerk, because first of all, Trains don't make rules like, no putting your feet up, also if he wanted her to get her feet off the chair so bad, he could've just tickled them until she removed them. People need to get a sense of humor. Authoritarians and Fascists stink like moldy cheese.

    I'm not saying the teen was right. Im just saying the cop is supposed to be trained in how to handle these things And to anybody that says he was and handled it..were that the case this wouldn't be news. These bastards are way too trigger happy. One smart remark or such and that's it. They'll take you down. How does this not scare people? Around here cops are awful. You have something they want ( drug wise. Even if what you have is legal) money wise or sex wise they take it. I drove up a dirt road one time to find a local married state trooper having sex with a needle junkie while his preg. Wife worked at the local sheriff station. I still wonder if she ever found out 🙁

  • Reply ROCKINGMAN January 13, 2019 at 10:52 am

    I agree with Gaming Lawyer, the woman should have put her feet down even if she didn't like being told. People often put feet on seats without consideration of others who also use seats. When using any transport system or business you have to comply with their rules. It's strange how many things in life are simple, but are ignored by a vast amount and when they are dealt with everyone wants to be a critic. I'm with the officer.

    A mere fine would have sorted this out without any ruckus. Whatever the officer did is a total waste of time and resources.
    Doesn't he have much more grievous crimes to handle rather than pulling and dragging a non threatening teen as if he has been appointed solely for that purpose.
    Seems like he was just trying to create fear and and set an example for the fellow passengers.

    Surely the officers have real criminals to get.They could have issued her with a written penalty there and then.Too much force.Far too authoritarian.The policeman assaulted her plain and simple, pulling her arm with excessive force.

  • Reply Spike August 25, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    You need to follow the orders of the Police. Those two women should be arrested. I feel sorry for the officer……………I think the bystander who became involved was inciting more violence against the officer and should be arrested.

    So don't put your feet on seat where others can sit. Simple as that.
