Skip to comments.Philly cops to have new policy for interactions with transgender community
Posted on 01/07/2014 6:45:18 PM PST by Kid Shelleen
THE PHILADELPHIA Police Department will soon implement a new set of guidelines for how officers interact with transgender people.
Deputy Commissioner Kevin Bethel worked with members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community to fine-tune the nine-page directive, police spokesman Lt. John Stanford said.
"The times have evolved, and not just within the Police Department," Stanford said yesterday. "You see it across the board in so many different areas. We have to learn to adapt to the times."

Catering to queers? Seems the alternative lifestyle has won yet again. Perverts get another boost up the privileged people ladder.
“stop and frisk” now “turn and cough”
Enough already with the add-on word “community,” to groups that are not a community. The word is employed as a case of trying to but lipstick on pigs or trying to be “modern” or trying to show how open-minded one is. No different thatn saying “The kleptomaniac community, “the child molester community,” “The underwear fetish community,” etc.
Wear a hazmat suit.
Why do we have to have special policies or procedures for transgendered people?
Police have procedures for dealing with all of us. Why would there be any different process if someone is transgendered?????
Issue to each and every police officer a 10 foot pole?
If these people are normal and just the same as everybody else, why do they need special rules or the kid glove treatment? If they are more emotionally fragile and sensitive—then they aren’t the same and they aren’t ‘normal’.
sigh... the circus continues... can’t make this shit up.
P.O.E. does the PA pings.
“...new set of guidelines for how officers interact with transgender people.”
Probably the best policy would be to avoid them but if you couldn’t then keep your distance and watch their hands.
Not anymore, I am taking over now.
“times have evolved”
no!... times has DEVOLVED and dramatically so!
make believe “men” and make believe” women” living make believe “lives”..do not deserves SPECIAL treatment..unless that would be getting them the help they need to overcome their psychosis..
“...RE :P.O.E. does the PA pings
Not anymore, I am taking over now. ...”
ANYONE alerting ANY of us to happenings in our locales is greatly appreciated.
These PA threads are my turf now. I am taking over.
If they want to do business here I can offer them a little insurance policy so no unfortunate accidents happen , you know how inconvenient they can be :)
You/I never know what you will get pinged with here, LOL
Quite so. In most cases these people have pursued their affliction particularly because it sets them apart. They have no interest in being like anyone else, especially another attention-seeker.
I usually don’t ping to items already on the PA sidebar, but if anyone wants to take over, Godspeed.
If you see posts of interest to Pennsylvanians, please ping me.
Thanks sickoflibs for the heads up
Jack’s first modeling job — wuz hoping for Sears catalog...
We have to learn to adapt to the times
No you do not. Your job is to enforce the laws of the land. PERIOD.
POE, looks like SOL (a Marylander) is “muscling in” on yer turf here!!!!
You KNOW how those Marylanders are... give ‘em an inch, etc.,
How many pages in the booklet on encounters with muslims?
He can buy a little insurance policy to make sure that no unfortunate accidents happen. They can be so inconvenient. Like a tribute :)
I was watching a MeTV rerun of 1970s Hawaii Five-O last night where a master criminal assembled a team of con men who looked like McGarret’s team to impersonate them and shake down locals business's for thousands of dollars, getting his team the blame.
Its was a fun episode.
That was when I got the ping telling me it was someone elses ping!
RE “...rerun of 1970s Hawaii Five-O...”
Next to “Jonny Quest”, one of the all-time BEST television show theme songs. Horns, man....big, brass HORNS, and excellent drums!!!!
And the opening video matches the song perfectly as with Jonny Quest.
I looked forward to each weekly episode as a kid.
The ones I still like the best are when the criminals plot to get McGarrett like the one below
Here is the one I watched last night (DVRed)
That opening sequence in H50 made me want to SURF!!!!
Never got around to doing that, though...
What about the guy who thinks he is Superman? Be careful not to call him Clark Kent, lest you upset him by giving away his identity.
The world has gone stupid.
Jack Lord with his signature hair-do cracks me up everytime.
MST3K does “Diamond Head” with Kono playing ukulele - it’s a hoot
“In most cases these people have pursued their affliction particularly because it sets them apart.”
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
True, but he had it down how to talk to the criminal characters, confidently assuring them that he will get them,
And you always looked forward to him poking them verbally after he caught them. It wasn't was he said as much as how he delivered it with facial expressions.
Alternatively Jack Web on the late 1960s version of Dragnet had the campiest way of lecturing criminals. It is fun to laugh at. I could always imagine young hippie like adults at the time (sometimes their guest characters) smoking weed and laughing at it. "Dig this square on the soap box again" LOL
“...It is fun to laugh at...”
Yeah, but he was a product of his generation, and he played it to the people from his generation who grew up with cops just like that. That program’s target audience pretty much couldn’t stand the dope-smoking hippie mentality.
RE Jack Lord: He just looked like a hard-ass. Same as Steve McQueen. Whatever part he played, he OWNED, and owned it well.
all people are equal except queers and they are more equal
