Math Fail: Cop Threatens Charges After Student Blows .018, Says It's 'Double' Limit of .08

Chris | InformationLiberation

After a student blows a .018 on a breathalyzer, an LAPD officer tells the student he blew double the legal limit of .08.

The student, who is a physics major, tells the cop .018 is not double .08, .16 is double .08.

"Not the way the machine reads it," the cop responds.

"Of course that's how it reads it," the student retorts.

"Hey you know what, just argue it in court, cuz' I'm gonna write my shit, ok?"

"I don't have to prove shit to you," the cop barks.

"Double of .08 is .16," the student again insists.

"Argue it in court, tell the judge," the cop says.

The cop goes on to tell the student to "fuck himself" and the video ends with the cop threatening to "book" the man's friend who was recording the incident.

From a cursory Google search it appears math fails such as this on the part of our idiot overlords are not entirely unique.

Incidentally, the cop in this case actually decided not to charge the student in this incident after he bullied him into not writing a police report.

Here's the student's story as posted to r/Bad_Cop_No_Donut.

I am leaving a house party when a fight breaks out and a random 250lb guy hits me in the face. I did not hit back. About 6 cop cars responded to the scene of the fight which I was not involved in. The man that hit me ran away once the cops arrived. Keep in mind that I was just an innocent bystander watching the fight from about 10 feet away. The officer was hesitant to take a police report probably because he was too lazy to file all the paper work. I think he used the breathalyzer as a scare tactic to get me to not file a report. He threatens to cite me for public intoxication and then tells me that I blew double the legal limit on the breathalyzer then proceeds to put his breathalyzer away. I only had two beers at this point so I request that he shows me the reading on the breathalyzer. He is not able to pull up the reading so I call BS and tell him to redo the test. He claims double the legal limit on the second try and I read the screen to see a .016. I tell him that .08 is the legal limit and .16 would be double that not .016. Officer obviously does not know his basic arithmetic! He then continues with questions about the man that hit me during the fight. After all is said and done he gives me the option of letting me go if I decide not to file a police report. Seems to me like the lazy officer scared me into not filing a police report with threats of citing me for public intoxication when I was clearly below the limit. For the record this is a wonderful officer from the LAPD.

9240 Complying with terrorist pressure to not file a terrorist's report, only encourages further terrorism. good luck with that. Why not give them what they don't want, and what they lawfully deserve - the incident report? Maybe then they'll be a bit less inclined to resort to terrorism to deflect the filing of reports.

9822 The student was using old fashioned math, the kind that normal people use in everyday life to build things, weigh things or figure a percentile. The officer was using the modern math, where .16 X man with the gun and the badge = whatever the cop says it does or this can escalate to something much worse for the normal human being.
