I cant tell if you are being sarcastic but if not, do you really believe that you can classify every police officer into such a broad generalization? I used to live in California and moved to Texas from the military. I have heard a lot of people tell me that all Californians are liberal pussies and weirdos and I have the same question for them....seriously? I am now a police officer in Houston. I work in what is called a tactical team. I would say that my teammates and I are pretty fair and we operate within the confines of Texas state law and do not abuse the power the people give to us. The whole reason I became an officer was to make a difference and try to bring to justice those that think they are above our societys laws. I also work club jobs off duty for extra money which is what these officers are doing. I could tell you some pretty good stories of things that drunk people try once the club closes. I have been in fights where it was myself and one other officer against 10-15 other people until backup arrived. On another note....I met Adrian the summer of the lockout....I saw him earlier in the night and really wanted to say hi but i didnt think it was professional since i was working and i respected his privacy. At the end of the night, i was in the parking lot breaking up a fight. I saw Adrian watching me and smiling. When the fight was over he walked up to me ( by himself) shook my hand and thanked me for being out there and doing my job. He said he really respected police officers and appreciated the fact that we volunteer to do a dangerous job. I told him thank you and that even though i was a niner fan it was pretty awesome to meet him. He laughed and told me the P-Willy is a beast. I asked him if there would be a season and he said that he felt the deal would get done. He then said good night and took off walking down the street by himself. I was told by club staff that he does not drink. Knowing this im shocked by the story im hearing and am inclined to take the man at his word when he tells his side.
In response to the questioning of being arrested for resisting arrest....that is just the final charge. Im sure the initial arrest was made for pushing the cop. The process in Houston, Harris County is that we make the initial arrest. Then we are required to call the DA and explain what happened. The DA then makes the decision of what to charge the suspect with. Sometimes the DA will drop a charge if it is minor (pushing the cop) and just stick with the more serious one of resisting arrest. Just so yall know.
