Stupid People

I have always had a sick fascination with the show "Cops", it just intrigues me how people can be so dumb. Tonight a woman (drunk) calls the police on her drunk belligerent husband. She is complaining he threw armor-all in her face and gave her a black eye. The police enter the house and the man goes on and on about him being the one paying the rent not them, so he can do as he damn well pleases. He gets into the officers face and they tell him to sit; he gets in their face even more and they help him take a seat.

So they finally arrest him for being and asshole as they say, and place him in the car for obstruction of justice and resisting arrest. He starts banging his head against the window and freaking out as the police tell the woman they are taking him to jail. She says she does not want him to go to jail and to let him out, and they tell her she can go bond him out if she wants. She then starts screaming at them that she does not have the money to get him out.

At this point I am thinking.... if you did not want him arrested... Why did you call the police???

If he hit you... why don't you want him arrested??

And if you act like a drunk asshole in front of a video camera... WHY do you sign a release to allow them to show your dumb ass on television??


They also had the parents who call 911 because their one week old baby is spitting up. Wow. I was 18 when I had my son and knew that babies spit up. These were no 20 year old kids, they looked to be in their 30's. I guess stupid comes in all ages.

Haha! I know what you mean. Some people are so dumb... I always appreciate the people who know they have pound of hash under their seat, but they still happily say yes and get out of the way when the cop asks to search their car.

It just goes to show that humans love their 15 minutes; no matter what the cost.
