"Sir" works just fine.
otherwise...

Bear - The other half of "smokey the bear" because of the hats they wore.

Ah poo - AP or USAF Air Police

White mice - South vietnamese national police during the war

Chips - CHP; California Highway Patrol NEVER used until the really dumb TV show came along.

The Man - kind of US hippie era but it also included anyone in authority

County Mountie - County or local police as opposed to State police.

The Goon Squad - archaic Pacific Northwest for highway patrol portable scale cars. They gave out overload tickets to log trucks that could bankrupt gyppo loggers.

No police officers were run over. The car struck a minivan carrying undercover officers, backed up into a store window grating, and then went forward and struck the police minivan once more. It is debatable whether the shootings met NYPD guidelines for use of force.
It may turn out that the shootings were justified. But that is not a foregone conclusion.

From the New York Times:
But Saturday’s shootings may have violated department rules, which largely prohibit officers from firing at vehicles. According to police guidelines, officers can fire only when they or another person is threatened by deadly physical force, but not if that force comes from a moving vehicle alone ... “The theory is that if the cops have time to set up a clean shot, they have time to get out of the way,” said Eugene O’Donnell, professor of police studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. “The cops shouldn’t be firing unless they have a clean line of fire. If they have the time to establish that shot they probably have time to get out of the way.”

Quoting PROSA (Reply 40):

Lets look at a primary source here - the text of the actual NYPD policy on shooting at moving vehicles:

"Police officers shall not discharge their firearms at or from a moving vehicle unless deadly force is being used against the police officers or another person present"

(These are the types of PRIMARY sources I like to use because they are transparent and generally do not contain spin, I think the NYT is great at spin)

So this line, but not if that force comes from a moving vehicle alone as reported by the NY Times - where is that in the NYPD guideline. Pray do tell.

So, Fact v. NYT? Hmm.


Oh, and that guy from John Jay. Lol. Reminds me of a friend (who happens to be a College Professor who taught a semester at John Jay) - anyway this guy was the king of spin. He's a tenured professor somewhere else now. Once said to me "I can take a class full of undergrads and make them believe anything."

In Zurich, people speak about "aen Dschugger" and the force can be named "Dschuggerei" . Rather harsh is when people talk about "aen Polyp" or if more "d'Polype". Some talk about "Schroter" and the "Schroterei" .
