Dylan Busted!

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with 20 year old cops....I don't remember there being 20 year old cops when I was 20....so what gives?

 

Besides, any cop who doesn't know who Dylan is shouldn't have passed the cop test.....Aren't cops supposed to be able to identify people?

 

At least Dylan was cool about it. Crosby might have pulled a gun on him.

Sounds like they won't be going to the White House for beers then.

 

 

I was thinking the same thing: Thank God Bob is white, otherwise it would have been turned into a race issue. :facepalm:

^ Fixed. My only other comment is, "I feel old." I wonder if they would've recognized Willie Nelson or John Mellencamp? They need to listen to real music.

What freaks me out about this is not that a couple of kids didn't recognize Dylan, but when the {censored} did it become illegal to take a walk?

:cop::cop::cop::cop::cop:

 

Exactly my thoughts.

 

WTF is the big deal. Why are the cops hounding an innocent soul.??:poke: This really pisses me off. I really don't understand.??

 

Another part of America that is lost....Freedom.

 

Funny Dylan, a white man, didn't cry foul.?? Wonder why.??

 

He was either down on Desolation Row scoping some inspiration or looking for some weed. No wrong in either of those.!!:lol:

I don't see the big deal. Sounds like the cops were slightly suspicious of a person who didn't seem to belong, and once he cooperated and kindly assisted them in satisfying their curiosity, everything was fine. More people should be polite to cops, there'd be a lot less beatings.

Following her police training, Buble said she indulged him.

 

"OK Bob, why don't you get in the car and we'll drive to the hotel and go verify this?' " she said she told him. "I put him in the back of the car. To be honest with you, I didn't really believe this was Bob Dylan. It never crossed my mind that this could really be him."

 

Buble made small talk on the ride to the hotel, asking her detainee where he was playing, she said, but never really believing a word he said.

 

"He was really nice, though, and he said he understood why I had to verify his identity and why I couldn't let him go," Buble said. "He asked me if I could drive him back to the neighborhood when I verified who he was, which made me even more suspicious.

 

"I pulled into the parking lot," she said, "and sure enough there were these enormous tour buses, and I thought, 'Whoa.'"

[...]

Whoa. :)

I'm calling you out.

 

Cops have no business questioning ANYONE that is doing no wrong. Period.

 

That AIN'T America.

 

And, what makes you believe that SOO many people are not polite to cops.

 

I am polite if I am in the wrong. If they bug me for no apparent reason that is just plain harassment. Abuse of power.

 

Leave me alone.

How can you agree.??

 

What was he doing wrong and why the big deal over who he was (is).??

 

Why should he have been removed from the neighborhood.??

 

Help me understand this.??

Do any of my fellow geezers/geezerettes remember back when we citizens were presumed innocent unless proven guilty?

 

For you youngsters (and those who are not paying attention), this period of history I refer to is pre-Department Of Homeland Paranoia...

I don't understand.??

 

 

Apparently not!

 

 

 

 

(1) Here you are in a strange neighborhood, people see you and don't recognize you, they call the police. It's called, "Neighborhood Watch"

 

(2) You are by law, supposed to have ID on you at all times.

 

These officers were only doing their job! Go ahead and get smart with them, they have the right to detain you for 72 hrs. That's the law.

 

 

Right or wrong that's the Law..........as they told me my whole life, If you don't like it, then work on changing the law (legally).

 

 

 

 

PS: I have been a rebellious person my whole life and I understand your frustration, but none the less I can protest either in jail or out of jail. You figure it out! But squawking about it here is not going to solve any problems at all, only enrage the masses. :facepalm:

WRONG!

 

There is no law in the USA requring ID except for when driving. The Supreme Court has ruled against such laws a few times. Cops do not have a legal right to detain people for "getting smart" unless the person is violent or theatening.

Starkville City Jail by Johny Cash

by Johnny Cash

 

Well, I left my motel room, down at the Starkville Motel,

The town had gone to sleep and I was feelin' fairly well.

I strolled along the sidewalk 'neath the sweet magnolia trees;

 

I was whistlin', pickin' flowers, swayin' in the southern breeze.

I found myself surrounded; one policeman said: "That's him.

Come along, wild flower child. Don't you know that it's two a.m."

 

They're bound to get you.

'Cause they got a curfew.

And you go to the Starkville City jail.

 

Well, they threw me in the car and started driving into town;

I said: "What the hell did I do?" He said: "Shut up and sit down."

 

Well, they emptied out my pockets, took my pills and guitar picks.

I said: "Wait, my name is..." "Awe shut up." Well, I sure was in a fix.

 

The sergeant put me in a cell, then he went home for the night;

I said: "Come back here, you so and so; I ain't bein' treated right."

 

Well, they're bound to get you, cause they got a curfew,

And you go to the Starkville City Jail.

 

I started pacin' back and forth, and now and then I'd yell,

And kick my forty dollar shoes against the steel floor of my cell.

I'd walk awhile and kick awhile, and all night nobody came.

 

Then I sadly remembered that they didn't even take my name.

At 8 a.m. they let me out. I said: "Gimme them things of mine!"

They gave me a sneer and a guitar pick, and a yellow dandelion.

 

They're bound to get you, 'cause they got a curfew,

And you go to the Starkville City Jail.

I really cannot believe some of what I am hearing here.

 

Did someone actually use the phrase "person who didn't seem to belong"???????????????????

 

Seriously?

 

So if I live in a predominately white neighborhood, and a black man is spotted taking a walk, the proper move is to have the police pull up and ask the guy for identification? What country did I wake up in this morning? Whether he claimed to be Bob Dylan or Good King Wenceslas, the guy was taking a {censored}ing stroll. Jesus.

 

I don't know what the laws are in NJ regarding whether or not identification is required for taking a walk, but I don't really consider this to be relevant here. The cops wouldn't have known whether or not he had identification on him in the first place if they hadn't unduly bothered him. Jaywalking is against the law. Maybe the cops should start escorting everyone who crosses the street against the light back to his residence.

 

I could understand some panicky neighborhood dip{censored} freaking out a little if Bob had been peering in windows or sifting through mailboxes or knocking on everyone's door to ask if they have Prince Albert in a can, but I have a bit of a problem with the "walking while utilizing eyeballs" charge.

I stand corrected as far as the rest of the country.........and even though it is disputed here also. They will/can still take you in if they feel warranted (yea that's like reasonable and prudent) and will let either a supervisor and or the (what they call) the 72 hr. Judge.
