Government Dumbasses

Up To Their Eyeballs In Crime And Only One Bullet...

Check out this story about the idiot cops in Phily arresting a couple of guys for floating an inflatable boat down the Main street in their town:

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Row, row, row your boat, just not down Main Street in Manayunk. That’s the message police are sending after arresting two men who used a raft as an alternate means of transportation down the flooded street Sunday.

CBS 3 reporter Dray Clark caught up with Pete and Pat, best friends and roommates from Manayunk, who paddled their way down the water covered street.

“I thought, Main Street floods a lot, go get a raft and float down,” said Pat, who admitted the idea was his.

We thought it would be a good time and it turns out it is,” said Pete.

Minutes later, Philadelphia police stopped the men and hauled them away in handcuffs.

When Dray asked why the men were being arrested, he said the officers replied, “for lack of common sense.”

No charges were filed against the boaters.


They put the cuffs on the guys.  Probably ruined a perfectly good buzz from a few drinks before or during the adventure.  And then they hauled them and their raft over to the police station and made their wives or girlfriends or mothers come and get them.


Floating in a boat in a flooded STREET?

Did they get arrested because they weren't wearing life preservers or other "personal flotation devices?"

They didn't have a fire extinguisher and watercraft registration papers on board?

See here, Ladies and Gentlemen...

The Cops these days are all going to the "Barny Fife" School of Policing...letting serious crap go on un-interrupted while they run around with their gun and single bullet screwing with private citizens doing harmless stuff like floating in a rubber inflatable raft.

And until we kick some asses into line and get the politicians to back off pretty soon it's going to be against the law to fart or belch in public without some idiot writing you a ticket for offending their tender sensibilities.

Dumbasses one and all...
