Arlington Police Are Completely Reactive - Who Will They Chase Next?


Hey Yupette,

I was talking to a friend who's employed by and will retire from the Arlington Police Department in the near future. In the event you haven't heard by now, the Arlington Police Department is 100% reactive and only responds to anything when there's a report or complaint. There are a few exceptions like special events and providing security for bars, restaurants, and malls. And putting entire groups under surveillance for any reason or no reason. Latest group is Millennial males carrying backpacks. So don't expect any 'community policing' from ACPD anytime soon. This is the last week before summer interns go back to school and if  I were between 17 and 25 I would not venture into the pub crawl zones this weekend, especially after Midnight. Thanks for your blog.

Want to know how bad things have gotten over the past 40 years? If you talk to the long haul truckers they will tell you that they are afraid of driving over 60 mph when the speed limit is 65.

Yeah the police lie like dogs when it comes to speeding on the interstates. County Mounties are the worst, like on 301 up and down the East Coast.

"Two Millennials on Fairfax at Quincy, one armed with a backpack....Request units for backup"

Of COURSE there's Community Policing in Arlington. The Democratic Precinct Captains tell the police who's naughty and who's nice.

So 14 years and $5 Trillion into the War on Terrorism everyone, especially Millennials, carrying a backpack is being placed under surveillance? Sheesh...

It's going to be a 30 Year War on Terrorism and we're in Year 14.

No more District Commanders.

Where is the press release regarding the reorganization of the ACPD? I can't find it on the County's Web site.

There is one Arlington police officer for all patrol operations -- the Millennial Party Operations Commander.

A totally reactive ACPD can't retain district commanders.

What gets ACPD patrol officers more excited than male millennial carrying backpack? Male millennial skateboarder carrying backpack.

Can Arlington Government PLEASE pass an ordinance prohibiting the riding of bicycles, skateboards, and scooters on sidewalks in congested areas like Clarendon?

Is it too much to ask bicyclists to walk their bikes in Westover, Clarendon, Courthouse, Shirlington Village, etc.? Apparently.

If someone circulates a petition, I will sign it.

"Sum Bitch, Junior. There go one of them Biketards running a stop sign again. Let's get that sum bitch and toss his scofflaw butt in the County Jail for about 6 months".

Don't you realize we're a Police State? Think about it. Fairfax County police union supports a knucklehead who shot an unarmed person with his hands high in the air in front of at least 6 other police officers.

Arlington County police allowed a bunch of third world human rights violators to use it's firearms training range during the World Police and Fire Games.

Does not surprise me at all that the Arlington Police are following anyone they see with a backpack.

Community Policing in Arlington? Police ask so-called 'community leaders' what's occurring in a community and believe everything they are told.

ACPD has de-emphasized the three police districts and is focused on chasing "suspects" around the entire County.

Anyone can be a "suspect". Police believe whatever reports they receive via phone calls. So "suspicious persons" often turn out to be black and latino males walking through a "white" neighborhood.

This blog would be hilarious were the comments not so appalling. I also believe we are in Year 14 of a 30 Year War on Terrorism and by 2031 we will be governed by neocon maniacs like Ted Cruz and a nationwide consortium of local neocon police forces whose primary focus will be on "enforcing neoconservative conformity".

Where has the FBI been for the last 6 1/2 years?

Standing by while the First Yuppie allowed local NeoCon Police Forces to do their totally reactive policing targeting his fellow African-Americans.

"Junior, less jest break off the chase and go home and find you a good old gal to marry. Some other county mountie along I-10 can nail the Bandit sum bitch. We're all on the same page for about 15 years about these counter culture sum bitches."

ACPD is completely unwilling and incapable of chasing and arresting the biketard scofflaw scum that's forcing me off the sidewalk in Clarendon.

ACPD is only about 20% cowboys. Rest are a bunch of lazy skanks who want to do as little as possible while drawing as much overtime as possible.

I saw a couple of uniformed Arlington officers walking along Fairfax Drive today. Obviously lost trying to find the nearest Dunkin Donuts.

Arlington Biketards is another special interest group with excellent PR that ACPD ignores....like ACPD chaperones Rolling Thunder in return for major league overtime Memorial Day.

I won't venture into Clarendon at all this weekend.

I also believe there will be a President Ted Cruz, or someone very like him, within 15 years.

Everybody -- Stay out of Clarendon. Clarendon is ACPD's Cowboy Action Zone on weekends. ACPD Patrol Division is looking to arrest anyone and everyone under 25 for any reason or no reason. Especially after Midnight.

Just because we're young doesn't mean we have to be stupid !!

ACPD has become a secret police force which is responsible to no one except itself.

NeoCon Maniacs? What happens after 15 more years of LGBT persecution paranoia?

My take on this is ACPD's growth hasn't kept up with Arlington's population growth.
