“I saw a guy get punched to the ground right in front of a big bunch of cops in Civic interchange a few years ago. Cops did absolutely nothing.”

Bullsh*t. The cops are under the microscope as it is. Do you really think they are going to allow an assault to happen right in front of them, in a crowded part of Civic and do nothing?

And if this imaginary incident did occur – why didn’t you report it?

Piss off, I know what I saw, you weren’t there so stop hugging the cops nuts and accept that they’re not angels.

I’d guess their thinking went roughly: no one was hurt so why have 2 of their number spend four hours in the station doing paperwork at the start of a busy summer night in Civic.

Who would I report it to, the cops? And if I had there’d have been 8 of them to say absolutely nothing happened, the CCTV system would have conveniently developed a fault and I end up on their s***list.

Let me guess. You sometimes wear a tinfoil hat?

So no real argument then just the easy dismissal of someone you disagree with as a nutcase.

So, no real evidence, just an amazing story with the strong stench of bullsh1t on it.

Yep, either lying, or he saw an injustice and did nothing about it, which is probably worse.
