Schmuck Alert Central introduces us to Officer Art Michel of the Oakland, CA school district police force. A local photojournalist allegedly hits the cop's cruiser with her elbow, and the fat fuck goes ballistic. The video must be seen to be believed.
Abuses of police authority like this drive me insane, because - aside from being hugely douchey - they erode the respect that good cops deserve. Petty rage puppets like Ofc. Michel are an insult to the uniform.
But why is he the way he is? I suggest that Michel's anger issues stem from either:
a) impotence, orHey, look. Don't shoot the messenger. I just call them as I see them.
b) an increasingly troublesome, conflicted, repressed homosexuality
