WCVB: A photo of a police officer sitting in his cruiser is raising a lot of questions. The photo shows a Reading police officer with one hand on the wheel while the other hand holds a mobile device. The officer is looking down at the device and raises questions about if the officer was texting. The woman who took the photo claims she was on the passenger side and when she saw the officer in Reading Square, driving at about 25 mph.
Reading Police Chief Mark Segalla said he is not jumping to conclusions. “If he was driving, it’s something we take very serious,” Segalla said. “Until we have all the facts, we don’t want to make any determination as to exactly what was going on.”
Reading police said the photo was only sent to the media, and the person who sent the photo did not contact them. Police said the officer involved will be questioned and if warranted, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
So let me get this straight. Some busy body in Reading saw what she thought looked like a cop texting while driving. So she took a picture of it, and instead of reporting it to her superiors she sent it to WCVB? Yea, she doesn’t have an agenda or anything.
First of all, how do we know that the cop wasn’t parked? We are going off a woman named Gerry Sullivan, who posted this picture on her Facebook page and claimed the car was moving 25 mph. So why didn’t she take a video then? I see a stationary vehicle and a cop looking at something in his right hand. That’s about it.
Secondly, who gives a shit? Cops are always touching the computers in front of them to run license plates and shit like that. Why does anyone care if this guy was using a cell phone? Did he get in an accident? Was he all over the road? Nope. So who gives a shit besides some loser with too much free time on their hand and an obvious anti-cop agenda.
People who complain that cops are doing things that they can’t are the worst kind of people. “That cop was driving way over the speed limit. He was texting on his phone. If I was doing that then I’d get a ticket.” Well guess what? You don’t have to be the first one to respond to every single dangerous and volatile situation in town. They do. Welcome to grown up world where cops get special privileges and can do things normal citizens can’t.
The real joke here is that it’s being reported by the Boston Globe and WCVB. This is what they constitute as news. Some idiot wrote something on Facebook that can’t be proven. Hot takes at five!!!! LOL. This is why people read Turtleboy Sports. Because the mainstream media is a caricature of itself and doesn’t ask any of these relevant questions.
