Stop Calling Me Dude!

One of QuizLaw’s illustrious readers, Diablo, pointed us toward a Baltimore cop who clearly doesn’t know how to deal with children. Dude: Step off, motherfucker. Power-trip much? He’s freakin’ 14-years-old? Maybe you could use your non-douchebag voice, huh?

Three things:

Thing 1) How am I supposed to take a police officer seriously when he is wearing shorts?

Thing 2) I am a grown woman and I generally don't care when someone calls me "dude". It's just not high on my "things that annoy me" list. There are other things much more irritating that might cause me to lose my shit in public in such a fashion. This does not come close.

Thing 3) Don't mess with the bull, son. You'll get the horns.

Hahaha. Poor kid. I burst out laughing twice at this guy's idiocy. I love the end where he says "Is that camera on? If I find myself on..."

I hope someone e-mails him the link.

And then fires him. Cause you know, he did kinda assault that kid and steal his skateboard. Let alone the harassment.

How does Officer Rivieri (sp?) (how AWESOME is it when he clearly identifies himself for the camera!) get through a day, if a non-event like that kid just saying "dude, I didn't hear you" causes him to lose his shit like that? Did I miss something there, because there was NO provocation that I saw, and then the kid's in a headlock, and his skateboard is taken, and the guy is foaming at the mouth that the kid's likely to be murdered. Nice.

Did anyone see his car? How the hell can you take a cop seriously when he's wearing a yellow shirt (that wears him), short shorts (ibid) and drives a golf cart.

Sir? Officer? 'Dude' is about as much as you're going to elicit in that context.

someday that cop is gonna wind up in the slammer and the other inmates will be calling him something other than "dude". He'll whimper I'm sure.

I really hope this guy got in trouble. Talk about abuse of power.

This kids rights were violated. Does anyone know how to reach him?

That cop's a total douche...anger management much?

Hey! It's me that made a funny T-Shirt for this story!!! Check out my site: JGunn Designs.

STOP CALLIN' ME DUDE!! HAHAHA!

I thought I'd mention that the local news station channel 2 found yet another video of Officer Rivieri freaking out, this time over a artist using a box and an RC car. I'm surprised "The Wire" hasn't made a character off this cat.

Hahaha: "A dude is someone who works on a ranch!"

Sorry ... a dude ranch is a ranch where "dudes" who don't really work on ranches get to pretend that they're cowboys over vacation. Moron. I actually watched the whole thing with my mouth hanging open. Where does he get off telling a kid that he's going to get murdered if he doesn't call people "sir" and "officer"? A bit out of line ...

The cop did take it a little far, but at the end of the day, you know that he's some little 14 year old punk whose parents don't even know where he is. He's that kid that walks extra slow on the cross walk and stares at you as he goes by. That cop had some good one liners, but needs to chill out if he wants to keep his job.
