It's not a world of men.

An off duty Chicago police officer was out drinking one evening at a local bar. Believing that he was too sober the man ordered another beverage. The bartendar cut him off observing that he was good and sloshed. This can be despariging to most people who feel they absolutley need another drink and usually leads them to go to another bar. This cop felt other actions were required in order to get his drunk on.

He started beating the female bartender. Yes on camera he threw the woman down and started punching and kicking her. Luckily the server seemed relativley unharmed as she got up quickly as he started smashing things around the place.

Now it's bad enough that a man with his position gets hammered and beats women, but what truly amazes me after watching the video is seeing the rest of the guys in the bar stand around and watch the whole affair and not intervene. I guess they thought their glares would somehow keep the man from hurting her.

I do wish the cop a long stay in pound-in-the-ass prison. Not only did he try to beat a female, but he also gave his brave co-workers a bad rap. Of course the police have one of the most difficult jobs on the planet, but this guy didn't make life any easier for his brothers.

I wish the bystanders who stood along and did nothing get a similar punishment, but sadly that's not up to me. It's amazing that no one consults me on things like this.

Chivalry is truly dead.

You'll often see people stand by when things happen to others'. It's so bizzare to me. Noone wants to get involved.

I'd like to think I'm doing my part to keep it alive. Chivalry that is. I'm the kind of person who will take off his jacket to lay it over a puddle so the woman doesn't get wet. I usually screw it up though by throwing the jacket over woman's shoulders to keep her warm right after and she gets all mucky.

Sadly, Police Officers are very likely to be involved in domestic violence (being the abuser that it). When I worked at the DV shelter only two police officers knew where the shelter was and they had to go through the same clearance as I did. Its quite disturbing. Its too bad another bad seed ruined the good name of police everywhere.
