TEANECK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — He had a gun, flashing lights on his car and claimed to be a cop, but real police in Bergen County said the man was a phony. The suspect allegedly pulled a woman over with blue flashing lights and had a gun on his hip.It happened last Saturday around 11 a.m. on River Road and Deerbord Street. The woman knew something just wasn’t right. Police said the lights were the first giveaway. A vehicle with only blue flashing lights is not an official police officer.
“He got out of his vehicle and approached her car, identified himself as a detective, and said that she was speeding,” said Teaneck police Detective Lt. Andrew McGurr… The quick-thinking woman took off, and police said she did the right thing.
“Our officers know what to do, that they are to identify themselves and if someone has a problem with that they will request a marked unit to respond to the location,” McGurr said.
Cameras: the great equalizer. Behold Deputy Sgt. Shawn R. Glans (No, I am not making that up… how appropriate) getting his panties in a wad after being told to uphold the law and obtain a search warrant. You see, these two nitwits (Adam Roberts and Colin Fitch) reportedly had left a .22 rifle on the back seat of their car in the Peoples Socialist Republic of NewYorkistan. Not a good move boys…
But, Deputy Sgt. Pencil-Dick shows up – for whatever reason – and wants to get into the parked, locked car. Stasi theatre of the Absurd ensues:
Now, the stress of the day-to-day that may have caused the fine deputy’s lapse in judgement may have been compounded by the paltry compensation he endured – $87,156 in 2014 – exacerbated by the fact that he only got a $7,000 raise (or overtime?) in the past year. I.e:
Shawn R and his wife Carrie M. (nee Bohanon) Glans reportedly purchased the home at 3 Tanglewood Drive, South Glens Falls NY on or about March 19, 2014 for $204,000 from Dolores Chittendon Here is what that house reportedly looked like in 2013 – before the purchase.
A New York deputy with the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department was caught on film early Friday morning slapping a young man who declined to have his vehicle searched. According to Adam Roberts, who spoke with Infowars after uploading the disturbing video to YouTube, he and his friend Colin Fitch were approached by two deputies while shopping inside a WalMart that evening.
After being forced to present their IDs, the pair were taken outside to Colin’s vehicle and asked about a .22 rifle on the backseat.
As Colin explained that he had just purchased the rifle earlier that day at a nearby store, a deputy Shawn Glans began demanding access to the vehicle, despite Colin proving that he was of legal age to own it.
“So they started questioning us and were very ornery and asking about the gun and what not and then Colin asked him what we had done wrong and what he was charging us with and he didn’t give us a good answer,” Roberts said.
Choosing to assert his Fourth Amendment, Colin told Deputy Glans that he would not consent to a search unless a warrant was obtained.
“But he said he wanted to search the car… and my friend Colin asked him what his reason was for and the cop went on about how he just wanted to check, and Colin didn’t really feel like he had a real reason.”
After failing to coerce Colin into opening the vehicle, Deputy Glans became irate, ironically at the constitutional right he swore to uphold.
“Let me see your f*cking keys… I’m searching your f*cking car,” Deputy Glans said, taking Colin’s keys against his will.
Now it seems that Storm Trooper Penis-Glans is not quite a stranger to unprofessional behavior. In March,1996 he cost the citizens of NewYorkistan millions in an attempt to relive the adrenaline rush of The Dukes of Hazard shows he watched in the 70’s, turning taxpayer Douglas H. McEachron into a non-taxpaying quadriplegic, by hurtling thru a 20mph zone at about 60 mph before the impact. I.e.:
Kind of an odd name for a cop, he might want to look into having it legally changed. It’s hard to feel too sorry for the press, though. After all they are getting what they have been cheer leading for for a long time. Disarmed citizens, and only the police having guns. If the press corp had any brains this would be a teachable moment.
