Officer A-Hole

We’re not against the police. We’re not against the police department, but we are against police who commit misconduct (and those who help cover it up).

 

This story has been updated on 1/12/2016.  All updates appear at the bottom.

Now I try not to bother myself or others with the day to day shenanigans of the rank-and-file.  I prefer to keep my focus on the shenanigans of command staff.  However, today I am making an exception.

To begin, I don’t know the Los Angeles Police Officer featured in this video.  I’ll just refer to him as “Officer A-Hole”.

“Officer A-Hole” appears to be being a bit of a jerk for no good reason.  And for that, “Officer A-Hole” has earned himself a spot right here on my blog.

If you’re reading this and you know “Officer A-Hole”, please tell him to lighten the hell up and stop being such a smart ass.  It’s funny that cops usually don’t want or tolerate any sass from the folks on the streets but have no problem dishing it out.

At this point, both the cops and the public know the rules of engagement have changed.  Cops know, or at least they should know, they are likely being filmed when they are busting someone’s chops in the streets.  It’s not illegal when they aren’t interfering with the busting of the chops.  Standing in front of folk’s cameras doesn’t make them go away.

But seriously, I expect a certain amount of smartassness from police officers.  It’s part of their demeanor and character.  In fact, in some cases it can be downright funny–but this ain’t one of those cases.  “Officer A-Hole” looks and sounds like 1) he’s been on patrol a little too long, 2) he’s grumpy as hell and 3) he is in desperate need of a vacay.

Can someone please see to it that “Officer A-Hole” gets a vacay and soon so that when he returns to work he can have a much more–let’s say–pleasant attitude while dealing with the public he’s been tasked to protect and serve?

Thanks much!

Update

It seems that “Officer A-Hole” has been identified as Officer Stuart Jaye from Hollywood Division.  Now Hollywood Division happens to be home to a few of my fav Los Angeles police officers.  Maybe one of those great officers in Hollywood I know can pull “Officer A-Hole” (and that sergeant) to the side and explain to them both the error of their ways.  Pretty please 🙂

So it’s official in that a complaint has been made against “Officer A-Hole” and “Officer A-Hole’s” sergeant.  Below are emails from the Department to the photographer acknowledging receipt of his complaint.  We’ve also been told a complaint has been submitted to the Board of Police Commissioners.

Jaye Email 1

 

Jaye Email 2

You know how I feel about teamwork, it makes everything work.

Now I will say that I thought it was strange for a man to have almost 30 years in the Department and still be a P2.  Well it seems that “Officer A-Hole” was a P3 at one point in his career and for reasons that I am sure will get emailed to me, was demoted. Rumor has it that our fav captain (not) Captain Ed Prokop, formerly of Newton now over at Metro, kicked “Officer A-Hole” out of Newton and sent him to Hollywood with a demotion. Now why he’d want to do that to the good folks over at Hollywood I just don’t know.  I’m told that they didn’t see eye to eye because Prokop played favorites. That’s the rumor.  Like I said, I am sure that someone will send me  all of the deets.

I’m also told that “Officer A-Hole” has done some good police work–work that earned him a Top Cop nomination.  It was “Officer A-Hole” who in 2014 helped catch Dirck Morgan White who was wanted for a murder back in Oregon.  I remember this, nice work.

However, I don’t care how many bad guys “Officer A-Hole” catches.  If the attitude he has in the video is his everyday demeanor, he needs to find a desk job and call it a career.

Just a quick note to say that the I’m told that female sergeant featured in the video has been transferred to Northeast Division allegedly for her inaction where Officer A-Hole was considered.

 

The Court of Public Opinion

  • PublicServant

    Ah, so he probably “served” with fine officers like Mark Fuhrman.

  • biggsmoke

    Joe, you sound bitter about something. Ken’s case must have had merit, otherwise he would not have been paid.

  • Tricky Ricky

    Retired at 36 years old with millions in the bank from some weak ass lawsuit. Enjoy the rest of your life. When you look in the mirror I want you to ask yourself this, “What have I done in my life that I am proud of. What in my life have I don’t to make others proud of me.” My guess is a big nothing. Enjoy your money, I am sure that you will run out of it soon.

    I don’t need to look in the mirror in fact I don’t have to do anything but live my life as a millionaire and read posts from haters and laugh.

    It seems to me that ofcr Jaye is not the antagonist here. What he appears to be doing is being guarding ofcr for his fellow offers who are conducting an investigation. It appears there is a vehicle involved which is parked at the curb & being looked at by other officers who have their backs to the sidewalk (vulnerable) & the public. Officer Jaye does not know the exact intentions of self described “media” guy, so he’s guarding the possible crime scene. All he’s doing is keeping “media” guy insulated from the other officers & possible evidence. “Media” guy is typical of today’s American society in that he thinks he knows something & doesn’t really know anything. He’s also typical of the Facebook. iPhone, YouTube generation, overhyping minuscule things. He could also be reminded of the phrase ” mind your own business” like they lady who rode by on the bike. Jaye was neither rude, discourteous or out of policy. If anything he was professional. “Media” guy could very easily have been detained for obstruction of a police investigation. Having said all that, Jaye is not an “asshole”, only a man doing the job he’s trained & paid to do. Unlike the citizen (media guy) causing unnecessary work for a supervisor.

    Obstructing media reporting of events happening in public is illegal. Extremely illegal. And why are people recording?…. because there are so many abusive cops. Recording keeps them honest.

    I’m reasonable most of the time, just like now!

    The life of Officer A-Hole:
    A four-pack-a-day smoker of Pall Mall cigs, officer A-Hole lives a rather boring life. He’s probably been divorced 2-3 times and currently unmarried. He sits in his minimally furnished studio apartment each night, in front of his 13 inch TV watching reruns of Hill Street Blues and Matlock. His attire consists of a white t-shirt (wife beater), blue and white striped boxer shorts (giant shit stain) and a pair of black socks, chain smoking his Pall Malls, non filters. His kitchen consists of nothing modern, a six pack of Shlitz beer and several boxes of off-brand macaroni and cheese. There are two plates, 3 forks, 2 spoons and a pocket knife available for his dining pleasures.

    On the clock, his life is equally mundane, aside from the occasional ally beating, photographer harassment and random, low-level, single crack rock street drug dealer bust he takes part. Although he’s assigned a partner, that partner is one of 48 he’s had over his illustrious career. Numbers 1-47 were, on average, half his age and currently at least one rank above him. He clocks in each day without anyone speaking to him, does his shift, then punches out, again in silence.

    He has no friends, no animals, no family to speak of. Each day is the same as the day before. The only excitement his life gets is the various consistencies of his shit.

    However, there is one thrill in officer A-Hole’s life that really gets him going, his one true vice, his fetish. He gets off to male midgets. For reasons only he knows, possibly due to his striking resemblance of a Wizard of Oz Munchkin, he developed a seething fascination early on in his life. Gay Midget Porn magazines are stashed everywhere about his apartment and he’s been to every amateur midget wrestling tour that hits LA for the past 38 years.

    That’s officer A-Hole.
