King County Sheriff Deputy Paul Schene’s Over-reaction Begs the Question of Common Sense

Meet King County Sheriff Deputy Paul Schene, a bully and a moron with a badge.  That is not a good combination.

Look, no one is making an excuse for the 15-year-old girls he arrested for driving a stolen car.  They need their justice as well.  But officer Schene’s reaction to the girl in jail (captured on the video below) is completely ridiculous. He and all officers of the law need to be held to a higher standard, to greater scrutiny. They are trained servants of communities after all.

Schene can’t even handle the rebellious attitude of one teenager. Do we trust him to serve and protect us? Heck no! I don’t trust his common sense judgement nor do I trust his character. Giving a person like him a badge and a weapon is not in the best interest of our community.

I’ve been completely under-impressed with the police officers in my hometown of Mercer Island since I’ve moved back from London.  In London, the police officers had an amazing amount of common sense in the way they dealt with serious and non-seri0us issues.  On Mercer Island, they seem to lack common sense and want to apply the letter of the law to every insignificant or significant incident in the same matter. That’s not a very smart way to police a community.   

Then, seeing this video in King County (which is my county), shows me that we need common sense training for all the police forces.  All I ask is that if we are going to pay people to carry a badge and a weapon to protect us, that they have above-average common sense ability. I think we should all be asking for that.

    …and today, Biden announces Seattle Police Chief as Drug Czar. What say you about this? Is he qualified? Does he have common sense? It’s a real question…

    Absolutely a legitimate question, as I’ve stated my views. However, let’s make sure that you understand the difference between the King County Sheriff department and Seattle Police.

    This is the same cop that killed a guy a few years ago, he claimed he was drunk and he attacked him. But the guy had zero alcohol in his system.

    Toad do your research first or take a reading comprehension class. The officer saying ” I thought he was drunk” because of the way the man drove was not a definitive claim that the man was drunk. And the man was shot because he attempted to strangle the officer with his mic cord then tried to pull the officers gun out of his holster. There was a number of civilian witnesses to the occurrance. This one was legitimate sorry.

    Toad,

    You are one arrogant fool. This inquest was judged by 9 jurors who concluded after three days of testimony after about 30 minutes, that the officer had reason to fear for his life and the shooting was justified. They had three days of facts and testimony and you, a total fool, think you can decide better by gleaning a few out of context facts from the last day of the inquest.

    You are an idiot. You should be steralized so you don’t pass on your idiot genes to children: we don’t need any more stupid people like you.

    The guy tried to take his pistol out of the holster, more like he saw a piece of shit abusing the girl, like we all know he likes to do, got mad and beat the fuck out of him, got back in his own car to leave and was shot in the back by the coward.

    All he had to do was shut the door. He saw what he wanted to do before it happened. If shes guilty of a crime so be it, she deserves to be punished, but not from him.
