Boston cops, trying to reach victims, unable to climb own waist-level police barriers because they are too fat and out of shape

I feel like you saw it throughout the footage all day. Many of them were helpless from reaching the victim area until the barriers were physically moved. Meanwhile it was civilians who were hopping over and helping the wounded. What ever happened to having a physically fit police force?

doesn't help that they're surrounded by marathon runners

They aren't exactly experts in medical triage anyway.

In the fifties Boston cops used to entrap gays. But gay rights took a step forward when the cops became too fat and out of shape to appeal to (or catch) the gays.

I wonder if those cops are fat because they have serious emotional and psychological issues, like Aunt Diane.

Or maybe they just love their jelly donuts.

I only saw one policeman struggle in the video. Keep in mind they carry gear too, it must restrict movement. The gates had to come down anyway .

"They aren't exactly experts in medical triage anyway."

In my state as least, police need to keep an EMT (emergency medical technician) license, and that includes training in disaster triage.

As for the weight issue, I was once told that in real life, cops never ever chase down anyone on foot, but they do sometimes have to wrestle suspects to the ground. So to a real street cop, 50-100 lbs of "donut-fueled heft" is more useful than being able to run.

LMAO. I'm quite amused at the excuses and lame justification being offered here on behalf of these fat slobs.

Now, if they were fat fraus, this thread would be at 500 posts already. Full of venom and bile.

So many fat dumpy cops in LA. Fifteen years ago they all looked like strippers. It's hard to respect them, not that I ever did

Blame Duncan Donuts.

They only have to be physically fit to get into and graduate from the police academy.

There's no physical fitness requirement once you've passed your probationary period.

Oh, dear.

I also only saw 1 fat cop unable to climb the fence. I saw the rest helping the wounded.

That being said, R9's reference to the fat LA cops is very depressing.

Whenever I watch COPS, there's always some overweight police officers trying to chase down a suspect and ending up out of breath and exhausted.

They need to stay away from those Dunkin Donuts', but of course they'd never forfeit a perk of the job.

by Anonymousreply 1504/16/2013

In the video, I only saw cops standing around and civilians helping.

Why would cops need to reach the victims- isn't that the EMT's job? Were they going to arrest the injured people?

Protect and Serve, R17.

Time to make the donuts.

by Anonymousreply 1904/16/2013

What? What do you mean? Is there a problem? I don't get it.

by Anonymousreply 2004/16/2013

R17, police are trained to provide emergency first aid. In a situation like yesterday, there are never enough trained EMTs or medical personnel to go around.

by Anonymousreply 2104/16/2013

Was R17's post serious or was he just being facetious?

by Anonymousreply 2204/16/2013

R17 thinks cops should just stand around eating donuts when disaster strikes.

by Anonymousreply 2404/16/2013

Cops aren't fat. Don't you watch TV?

Duncan Donuts would be a good name for a drag king.

True.

I think some are hot, sorry maybe I'm a chub chasser but some I'd suck off

by Anonymousreply 2804/16/2013

Why did that barrier appear to be so impermeable to them? It wasn't the Great Wall of China; why did they have such a hard time with it?
