People who should not be allowed to wear a badge

Utah edition.

This is such bullshit...  More here.  This alone ought to get that asshat- at LEAST- sent to "Stop being a dick" training:
Porter said what is just as disturbing are comments caught on Payne's body camera video while he was talking to another officer. Payne can be heard talking about his other job as an ambulance driver, and how Wubbels' arrest might affect that.

"I’ll bring 'em all the transients and take the good patients elsewhere," he is heard saying about the hospital.

"Even if he’s joking, this is not funny," Porter said. "I mean, there are so many things wrong with that statement I can’t even begin.”

Don't leave out the University PD officer, who stood there like a good little drone. 

Same idiots will wonder "Why don't people appreciate us?"

Let's not leave out the most important unreported thing -- the guy they wanted to draw from WASNT EVEN THE SUSPECT. They KNEW who the suspect was, because they were chasing the suspect when he crossed the median and hit the patient head on. This was a guy that THEY got into a wreck with the real suspect, and now they want to investigate HIM?

Shady actions by the police all over this. Professional overreach and institutional arrogance that treats anyone not official as probable criminal. It's a mindset and it has destroyed any real faith in the police and rightly and deplorably so.
