Guess we found our next law and order candidate

Continuing the trend of “don’t be an ass and you don’t have to be embarrassed if you get taped” here’s a video on YouTube from Baltimore. In it, Officer Rivieri (he identifies himself at 1:55) gets indignant with a skateboard, apparently assaults him and takes his property, then continues to berate him some more before intimidating the kid taking the video into turning off his recording.

I suppose it’s possible he subsequently returns the board or arrests the kid and puts it into evidence, but we can’t tell from here. All we can be certain is that he embarrasses himself and ahem Charm City by being such a bully and jerk.

Happily, Baltimore seems to be more responsive when one of their employees engages in inappropriate behavior than the Fairfax school system is.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
