“I been forced to write my own laws, and you violated one in there. I just have to find you guilty of contempt of cop.”
Bumper Morgan, Joseph Wambaugh’s eponymous Blue Knight, justifying his brutal assault on a young man who had casually insulted him.
Jared Lunn, a 21-year-old volunteer firefighter from Brighton, Colorado, visited Denver’s LoDo district to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The evening was quite pleasant until Jared, who was carrying a pizza and minding his own business, was suddenly punched in the face and knocked flat by someone he had never met.
Shortly after the assailant scurried away the police arrived, and Jared’s night took a pronounced turn for the worse.
Perhaps Jared was unaware of the axiom that it is never a good idea to ask the police for help.
