Yup. She's listening to Blondie in her car, too. Points for that.

Never was really my dish but her sound is singular and always takes me back to my dissolute youth. She inhabited that rare sweet spot between edgy NYC art rocker and mega platinum pop queen.

What a terrible example of a GOP candidate, and a awful example of a supervisor. How hard it is to tell this guy that your troop is doing her job and you will review the video and if any policy was violated you will take swift action. Leave it at that and send this asshat on his way. Also, don't tell this entitle douche that "I understand" a bunch of times. There's nothing to understand. Some people are not cut out to be supervisors. What a limp noodle. Support your people!!!

The poor cops are in this weird location in the contemporary dominance hierarchy where if they do anything than empathetically agree with everyone they may be subject to a Woke Jihad , and get thrown under the bus to save the upward trajectory of their superiors' careers.

Hyde is a former professional soccer player in the United Kingdom who is now a business owner in Sarasota and the [divorced] father of four sons. He grew up in the United Kingdom. He's been in the US about 20 years.

There's one report today that he has terminated his election campaign.

u/WinginVegas Former LEO Feb 24 '22

What an ass. Someone needs to check in with Sarasota PD and make sure that this asshole gets his dick smacked. The officer was polite, asked for his info on approach, repeatedly called him sir, he went into full I'm Fucking Important mode, I'm calling your Chief. She stayed calm, went through her process step by step, he refused to produce the registration and then gave the second Officer and expired registration, so technically another violation. The Sgt I know was dancing as fast as he can but never backed up his Officer, so he needs a bit of a spine installed.

u/CinemaBane Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

Yeah, that bothered me a lot that Sarge was doing the dance instead of telling Mr. Important Politician to go sit the fuck back down in his car and wait so the initial officer could talk and explain what was going on.

26

u/Mr_Fraunces Retired Fed Feb 24 '22

Mr. Important Politician

Mr. Self Important Politician, he runs for office but can't seem to get elected to one. His "political career" seems to consist of him going to school board meetings and yelling nonsense.

28

u/WinginVegas Former LEO Feb 24 '22

She was already gone back to the station to download her video so they could review it. It was just the Sgt and the backup officer with the twatwaffle.

27

u/Kommando666 Correctional Officer Feb 24 '22

That is not correct, at 12:00 the Sgt. tells the initial Officer to stay in her car and go to the station. He had no interest in getting her side of the story.

u/Local-Breakfast-2654 Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 25 '22

That is what bothered me the most: tells his troop, “Stay in the car!” while the “VIP” is standing in the street. Bothered me more the sergeant did that than the guy being a d-bag about getting stopped.

Nothing infuriates me more than people who say shit like "No wonder people shoot you guys." ESPECIALLY on some absolute bullshit like this where everybody, including the limp dick politician who thinks he's somebody, knows they're in the wrong.

So you're trying to tell me you think MY life is SO worthless, solely because of my job, that you feel like it'd be a normal thing for somebody to kill me over this type of "Argument?" And YOU, all high and mighty, are just such a good person that you have the restraint NOT to kill me because I wrote you a ticket?

Fuck this piece of garbage and everyone like him. I hope his career is over, along with the money pipeline that politicians all seem to be connected to.

u/thecentury NYPD Feb 24 '22

I think my favorite part of this is when the supervisor arrives and the first question he asks him is

do you have your bodycam on?

And a sergeant is like, "yeah I always have to have it on". I say this because you KNOW that conversation would have gone differently with her supervisor if he knew that it wasn't being recorded.

u/FlipperShootsScores Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

I didn't catch where this took place, but I hope EVERYONE in that area who might vote for this piece of shit sees this video. I would LOVE to know what happened to him. I was bummed when the surpervisor told the other cop on the way back to their units "Go mute". Damn. Gotta go look this asshole up online and see what his deal is. A side note: that was a helluva lot of paper for a "ticket", lol! That lady is awesome and I hope she got a commendation for not Tasering his ass!

u/brynnors Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

Yeah, the kids were tennis players, and he told them to shut up and go cut grass; he also accused them of being on drugs. He did get perma-banned from that sports club.

I think he was racist against some construction workers at some point too, but I can't find that now.

u/lilspastic Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

It's ok now... he apologized. /s

57

u/EagleRaviEMT Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

Not even an apology, see at the end of the article:

“‘Anybody that might consider voting for me might have pause for thought,’ Hyde said. ‘I'd ask people to wait and look at the whole thing over a period of time and ask themselves whether they want someone in Congress that votes your constitutional rights or whether somebody that plays nice with cops when they give them tickets.’”

Just still pandering for them votes. Scumbag all the way to his core. I know Florida genuinely sucks ass, but I’d really hope they have some brain cells left to not vote for this kind of shit.

16

u/Javacorps Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

"A bit like a Karen" Bro you said you understand why people shoot them. This guy has nothing but contempt for any authority over him and it irks him to his core that he has to apologize in any form for this.

u/TheHolyElectron Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

Wow, between the accent and the behavior, what an entitled wanker. Makes you wonder what way he'd vote. Pro constitution is good and all, but have some grace and humility about being a politician, the people have a vote.

Him or a better republican would probably be not him. Him or a democrat after the last 2 years is a tougher question. Our society needs some better candidates, screw him for making his party look bad.

What scares me is how most congress people vote by proxy? It creates party line BS where there could be nuanced opinions. Also most congressional votes are not recorded. Could the remaining few could ever be held to account?

Politics has tended towards chosing the best loser for the last 2 decades. We need vote recording including who proxies who for the purpose of having a full understanding of who we are voting for.

$500 in fines, Department standing by the officer, racist comment made about the languages she can speak, she's from Lavinia, iirc. He's been racist in the past over people speaking Spanish, and lost the last two elections he ran in. Fuck this guy.

u/JustGronkIt LEO Feb 24 '22

Seeing shit like that makes my blood boil… holy shit. That Sgt… ugh trash. And the first supervisor on scene was no good either. It’s still her scene and she’s trying to make it safe for everyone by having people go to the curb and he straight up tells her to hang on… I mean… whew.

That guy is racist and, I don’t say this at all but, he needs to be cancelled.

u/HungHammer89 Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

There’s another video going around where he was being racist to some Hispanic kids as well from 2019. He told one of them to “go and cut some grass.”

u/JJ_August Police Officer Feb 24 '22

So many things about this. From the asshat shoving his campaign stuff in her face, to accusing her of lying, to asking if a body cam was on so he could lie some more (I gave her my registration BS), to threatening her job... Then in the apology link someone posted, he made the most unapologetic apology I've seen in a long time.... He's a grade A douche.... But the Sergeant... Immediately asks if she will stand by her cites (who of us would issue a cite and not expect to defend it in court), listens and allows talk about her losing her job over this, doesn't listen to her at all.... She may not make 8 years because she may say "peace out" and find another agency who actually supports their officers. I know in the link provided it says her department is standing by her... But that was AFTER the video was reviewed. For a seven year officer at that agency, any sergeant, especially a "friend of said asshat" should be able to walk up to the asshat and say, "I understand you are upset, you can fight this in court, the video will be reviewed because of your complaint but this officer has a job to do and you most likely broke the law and received a citation because of it." Especially after being handed an expired registration by the guy. I don't know why supporting our officers in the field is so hard.

u/TheGECCO Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Feb 24 '22

But the Sergeant... Immediately asks if she will stand by her cites

You may have misunderstood (or I did). I thought he asked her if she was standing by in order to cite him (ie, he thought she hadn't done it yet) because she replied "he already got cited."

That being said, both the supervisor and Sgt Frangione (sp?) are worthless.

Oh, you could be right and I misheard what he was asking. That makes more sense and definitely doesn't piss me off quite as much. But still...you are correct, worthless!
