Geneva Police Officers are Dunderheads

I'll try to be short as my blood still boils over what happened today on Av Helvetic (I think) right around noon, I was driving in slow traffic on 3 lane one direction boulevard on the far left, middle next to me a police patrol car.

From the left side, small street enters the boulevard, long lines there, almost stationary traffic on both streets (boulevard and small street)

I reach the junction and I let the car waiting to join to pass in front of me. As the car joins, I am in motion to follow, when the car behind the first car in the line, jumped in front me, cut me and slammed my left visor. The visor flipped on the other way (not broken, just dislodged).

I ofcourse start to scream, my window was open, in English if course, the guy non chalantly not even looking at me continues as if nothing happened tries to enter the line. I continue to honk, he says "you people don't own the roads"

The police next to me started screaming "calm down, calm down" they even turned the siren. The guy flew away to the front. I repeatedly said to them if they saw what he did (they did see) they only screamed back to start my car and go away or they will arrest me. Why will you arrest me, "I'll find something"

there you go, Genevan police officers, lazy f* scumbags not wanting to miss lunch. I wonder if the police in zurich or any other city in CH would have had the same reaction, a car slams into another from a NON PRIORITY road and the police turns a blind eye even treatens to arrest the victim driver.

Finally screaming over, the lady in the police car asks me if i have damage on my car, YES I HAVE I said look at my visor, she says just put it back.

I put it back all looks OK, I move along. police continues on their well deserved lunch.

I stop at my destination, my visor is cracked on the front, you can't see it from the driver seat.

There you go, only in Geneva police officer witness crime and don't do anything, they'd rather eat lunch

Lowest of the lowest SCUM

Re: Geneva Police Officers are Barnacle Chompers

My advice: change your title and then we'll talk.

Re: Geneva Police Officers are Dunderheads

Is that not the polar bear that had a fit and died?

To the OP - get the bus, much more relaxing. I recommend the number 6 for entertainment, some strange passengers. Just don't sit in my seat, two down from the back next to the window. That way i can watch the red faced car drivers and regally wave at them.

I'd say it is the guy who broke your wing mirror who is the dunderhead (great word), not the police.

Re: Geneva Police Officers are Dunderheads

Not if your an alcohol addled druggie that hangs out at the station. Easy peasy. Fly through the traffic jams. In fact, the number six bus stops there so i could pick it up.

Re: Geneva Police Officers are Dunderheads

So you have lived in Geneva for at least 3 years, and only just discovered this? I heard they were waiting for the Chief of Police in Vaud to visit Geneva, they wanted to arrest him. They behave like outlawed cowboys.

A lady friend of mine was shot in the face by a Geneva policeman, from 5 to 6 meters with a paint ball gun in March 2003. Maybe you got off lightly.

http://www.quellesconnes.com/~anti-g...p3?id_breve=49 . http://de.indymedia.org/2003/04/47911.shtml

Look at images #3 & #4 https://www.google.ch/search?q=denis...&bih=563&dpr=1

When the 45-year-old general secretary of the CH-media union Comedia (and former Freiburg Great Councillor) Denise x watched as her 16-year-old son was beaten with a truncheon on the skull (the resulting head injury later needed 4 stitches) she protested. An officer on the stairs at the Geneva railway station was pointing a gun at them and he shot them from a distance of 5-6 meters in the head.

The Geneva police admitted later in court the paint-ball gun had not been permitted, nor approved.

Driver gets cut up. Instantly goes into road rage. Police watch with amusement. How awful.

I recommend valium and a bus ticket.
