Obviously the cop had hay fever.
|Knuckles - 2008-09-02 |
That woman was brandishing an object in a threatening manner. The cop doesn't have time to realize it is just a flower -- he must make a split second decision about a woman waving something menacingly. With that in mind, she got what she deserved.

They really don't give a shit who is filming them any more. The Bush administration and the neoconservatives have given cops carte blanche to do whatever they want to whomever they want in the name of "protecting" the public.
What really makes me sick is the fact the people who cheer these assholes on are the ones who always bitch and whine about being "oppressed" by evil liberals.
Seriously, you think the police only started doing this shit under Bush? Do you seriously think getting pepper-sprayed is in any way comparable to the Kent State Massacre?
Anyway, five stars for spraying her AGAIN at :27.
Kelpfoot has a point. It's not like this is anything new, just ask your parents or even grandparents. The new non-l;ethal stuff is used a little too openly and much over little shit, such as this and obviously the taser death in Vancouver, B.C. but honestly, better pepper spray than the billy club.
Don't get me wrong, it's a slippery slope, and the cops do get too much of a pass when it comes to their actions (any job where killing the wrong guy only gets you fired is kinda whack). But you know, it's not all Bush. Sometimes I wonder if the world was always this fucked up and we were simply too young to realize it before.
blah blah, it's the middle of the night and i'm wax philsophising on a video comment site.

I guess a rating helps
|Goethe and ernie - 2008-09-02 |
Ignoring the potential ramifications of a situation in which the police don't give a shit what they do even on camera, that was rad. I hate hippies.

It's entirely natural for politics to come a distant second to amusing violence caught on camera.

Oh sir, let me fetch that tear-powered flying machine for you.
|Bebido - 2008-09-02 |
As an evil oppressing liberal, I rubbed one out to this. The conservatives had nothing to do with this! Bwahaha!
Serious though, way to practice restraint on the pepper spray.
|socialist_hentai - 2008-09-02 |
I don't think the cop really gives a shit about politics or that he even knows he's been given carte blanche. It's the mob mentality, give a group of people weapons (even non-lethal),a bit of authority, a mask and a uniform and they'll go all SS out of instinct. That's my opinion as a non-american, i may be wrong.
No, it's been proven...a group of people given authority, superiority, and an adversary, will degenerate into complete pigfuckers pretty quickly.
Which is why there need to be no laws -at all- about regular people filming police, so the jackasses have some fear of punishment.
True, and here is the link: http://www.prisonexp.org/
Turned Zimbardo into Hitler. That takes some doing, despite the fact that he looks like he should be named Bob Satan.
|DMKA - 2008-09-02 |
Wrong, and kinda disturbing. But I still lol'd.
|jangbones - 2008-09-02 |
What the fuck do the cops need a fucking flower for, you attention whore? Try giving a flower to somebody who has a treadmill, in return for a test spin.
|zatojones - 2008-09-02 |
OH SHIT BEING A HIPPIE ISN'T ALL FLOWERS AND WEED
|DK1987 - 2008-09-02 |
Normally I'm sympathetic to things like this but that all went out the window when I saw on the back of her dress: Funk the War.
I mean if you wear something like that you need to be sprayed.
|baleen - 2008-09-02 |
I can totally hear the conversation that these guys had at the local cop bar afterward. The pub I used to go to during the day was a big hangout for retired cops, and their general conversation topics included "killing them all," "bombing them all," "fucking them all," and "fishing."
|Billie_J_Buttfuck - 2008-09-02 |
Idiot woman, idiot cops. Just fucking idiots.
|Meerkat - 2008-09-02 |
I think his response was more an art noveau commentary on her poor choice of wardrobe. A) The stye and fit made her look like the Michelin Man. B) The colour totally did not go with her blonde hair and clashed with the environment. That colour was for a Winter, not an Autumn. She was clearly an Autumn.
I would have sprayed her too.
|Harold Manchester - 2008-09-02 |
"Flowers not guns!"
"NO FLOWERS!" *PSSSSSSSHHHH*
"Ahhhhhhhhh!!! Oh God it burns!"
"NO SCREAMING!" *PSSSSSSHHHH*
|Doctor Arcane - 2008-09-02 |
The cop was expecting roses.
|sosage - 2008-09-02 |
No we will not go out with you. PSSSHHHH

So much I want to say about how we should be shocked to death this happens in the shining beacon of freedom we call the United States of America etc etc, but I'll cut it short.
BITCH YOU'RE DOING TIANANMEN SQUARE WRONG YOU NEED MORE TANKS AND GROCIERY BAGS AND LESS FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS
She was trying to do the old "flower in the gun barrel" gag that 60s era hippies liked, but she forgot that since the 60s the police have learned how to handle crowds in ways that don't require rifles or truncheons. Old hippies didn't have to deal with pepper spray and tazers. Now they police can squash your stupid flower child stunt without killing or seriously injuring you.
|Senator_Unger - 2008-09-02 |
Has anyone noticed how this crap only happens at Republican conventions? I don't recall any cops doing this in Denver and there were just as many anti-war hippies there.
|Xenocide - 2008-09-02 |
So yeah, America is a parody of itself now.
|Enjoy - 2008-09-02 |
That was not pepper spray. That was fertilizer for the flower.
|Dinky Patterson - 2008-09-02 |
That guy with the camera for the first spray must've gotten a great close-up.
|nubilus - 2008-09-02 |
The hippie flower technique only works for hot girls. Fatty should have known.
|Comeuppance - 2008-09-02 |
Let's put this in perspective:
You're in full riot gear, moving forward, with no really good way to stop moving forward easily given the number of people behind you.
If some person comes up to you, gets in your way, and persistently shoves a flower in your face, you'd want to spray her in the face too. After that, you want to do it again after you realize what a bitch move it was for her to do that.
What you want to do =/= anything of any relevance at all
wait so cops are tanks without brakes now?
also, way to completely misrepresent what she was doing.
I'm with Comeuppance on this one. These cops aren't here to accept peace gestures, they're here to crowd control.
I'm pretty goddamn sure you can't control a crowd if they think handing out daisies is permissible. And I'm also quite certain that the police would be saying things like "Back away," 'Ma'am' optional.
Repeatedly ignoring this gets ANYONE the business-end of some non-lethal weapon, regardless what they're brandishing.
|Pillager - 2008-09-02 |
What the fuck happened to America?
Some of us stopped loving war?
|CharlesSmith - 2008-09-02 |
It's like all the asshole cops can smell the change in the wind and want to get in as much abuse of authority as they can at this RNC before the Democrats take power.
|1394 - 2008-09-02 |
There's some pretty terrible music going on in the background there.
|garcet71283 - 2008-09-02 |
I don't think I would have been that restrained, honestly.
You give me a big stick of justice and the armor to back it up and I would go to town on everyone there (and some of the cops, just to see how long I'd last)
5 stars for spraying a hippie.
|klingerbgoode - 2008-09-16 |
look at the power on that pepper spray! it's like a firehose!
|RandomFerret - 2008-10-10 |
No, but seriously. This is horrible.
|FABIO2 - 2008-10-16 |
No fat chicks.
|kingofthenothing - 2008-10-17 |
20 years from now, she'll be the female equivalent of V from Vendetta. She'll be offering them flowers for a much different reason.
forgive the drunken reply. V FOR Vendetta, not from.
|oogaBooga - 2008-10-18 |
It wasnt the flower, it was the fact she was impeding their progress forward by blocking them. As you can see, they're all marching forward trying to push everyone back, and she tries to not budge at all and hide behind a pretty flower because she's just SO FUCKING SURE that the universal message of peace love and harmony will protect her from acute eye irritation and inflammation.
Dumb girl, dumb cops.
|exar_kun - 2010-03-23 |
She needs to get on a treadmill.
|sparklefatty - 2010-07-12 |
Oh just take the fucking flower and say thank you. Jesus.
|Maru - 2010-10-14 |
I hate this police state, but I can't make myself feel sorry for these hippie douchebags.
