Bad cop, no donut.
I’ve been robbed ONE time in my life, and it was by uniformed San Francisco police officers.
I’d heard stories like that about Mexico, and was shocked.
So how much more shocking to have it happen to me in my OWN country, huh...?
I don’t mouth off, I have no tatoos, no hip-hop clothing, and I’m always polite.
THE TSA IS ANTI-LAW ENFORCEMENT!!!! /sarc
“Job stress”...needs a time-out.
Dear TSA: This is EXACTLY why you need ALL your transactions to be recorded on video and why you should not be allowed to deny people the right to record.
YUP! Coming to YOUR neighborhood..!
I'm in the wrong business.
So he wuz off duty when he stoke “dity”?
That’s why peeps I know record on their smartphones the moment they get to the checkpoint. remember the dude who caught the TSA lying to him in San Diego and released a blog?
So he wuz off duty when he stole that “dity”?
Pls tell. They robbed you of money? This being SF, were they unusual cops in any way?
You had it coming, just ask any of the Jack Boot Lickers here. Probably because you use drugs. (Mega sarcasm, I don’t doubt you were picked for the same reason Willie Sutton robbed banks.)
I had to go to the police report to find out that “Kelly” is a female. I read the article and it consistently said the name, but never said he or she. Hmmm.
Well, then this thread is useless without pics.
Laz can’t hit what he can’t see. LOL
I bet he sings like a canary.
(Forgive me Lord and bless the pygmies in Pappa New Guinea)
I was a cop for a few years. I never stole anything, on or OFF “dity.”
Pretty stupid cop. Those iPads can be tracked, he’d be identified in no time. Not something to steal, not as if you can swap out SIM cards like a cell or anything, it’s pretty much a brick for an unauthorized user once the rightful owner alerts Apple/AT&T.
“This officer pulled me over for speeding. Although her high pitched voice made my ears bleed I don’t care, I hope we can go snowboarding some day.”
Apparently the micro-SIM can be easily made out of a large one.
However chances are that the thief was simply a cleptomaniac. If so, s|he needs no practical reason to steal.
Not only can the unit (as well as many other Apple electronics) be locked remotely, it can be tracked via GPS and arrests made.
Folks, never steal an ipad, ipod, iphone or MacBook. You’ll be busted for sure.
San Fansisco...Could have aeen a male and a female all rolled into one.
