Police pulled girl over, made her put her hands on her head so a boy could ask her out on a date



INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- An Indian teenager was trying to think of a creative way to ask his girlfriend to prom, so he called the cops.

The police officers pretended to to pull the girl over, and told her to stop, put her hands on her head, and turn around.

When she did, she saw her boyfriend holding a sign that read "Will you go to Prom?".

She said yes.

And we're supposed to think this is remotely cute or okay?

17. Horse manure

 

Thousands of people interact with the police daily the overwhelming majority of which have no issues whatsoever.

The idea every cop is just waiting for a reason to shoot someone is garbage.

19. So, you're okay with taxpayer resources and color of authority being used to prank a person?

 

From all indications she was unaware of what was going on beforehand but even if she was, taxpayer resources was used for this little stunt.

Police need to spend as much time with the public as possible I am also ok with cops going to schools and doing meet and greets and other community outreach programs they do.

24. Interaction? Please. Nearly false arrest.

 

There are any number of things that could have made this go very badly. It was totally fucking stupid and all the cops involved should be axed.

No need to taze them, just fire them.

I suppose since she was already his girlfriend, it was interpreted differently in this case

I've never heard of that before.

The ones at the games I've heard of. But I don't get why the guys are slapped.

33. Don't know about mall proposals...

But you'd think the couple would have discussed marriage to some degree before these "grand gestures" so these kinds of rejections wouldn't happen.

There was a semi-famous incident a couple years ago, where some guy proposed to his girlfriend on the Jumbotron screen at a baseball game, and she said no. Poor guy. It always works in the movies.

I'm guessing this was in one of those Mayberry RFD towns where everybody knows everybody, and there would be little risk of anything going wrong.

20. Arrest ‘n’ Guest ‘em

was a “fun” promo thing the local chamber of commerce once did in Hot Springs, SD. Maybe it still goes on – I don’t know. Every week or so during the summer tourist season the local police would put on their flashing red lights and siren and randomly pull a vehicle over that had out-of-town license plates. The police would pretend to arrest the people in the vehicle, but then hand them tickets for free meals or discounts at local stores and motels. The “lucky” arrestees would then have their pictures plastered on the front page of the local newspaper.

All apparently went well until the cops pulled over a married man and his girlfriend who’d driven over from Wyoming to avoid being seen by their family and friends. The couple wouldn't give their names, but their Arrest 'n' Guest 'em picture appeared on the front page of the paper anyway. Oops.

27. I'm guessing since she said yes she was okay with it. It is a risky play though because there are

girls that would not be okay with it.

35. It is indicative of the boy's and police's view that

 

they are justified in manipulating her. They feel it's okay to control her body and vehicle movements. It's really twisted.

36. Like I said some girls would not be okay with it but this girl was okay with it.

Not everything a boy does is malicious in nature. She clearly did not feel this was done in a malicious manner or she would not have been okay with it. How offended a girl is by something is different for every girl. Some women think all marriage is slavery. Clearly there are those of us who do not view marriage this way because we chose to get married and are happy. Others chose never to get married because they don't want to be enslaved. We are all different and have different views about what is acceptable and what is not acceptable.

This is NOT a "creative" way to ask your girlfriend to prom, it's a totally assholish way and if I was the girl I would have dumped his sorry ass for doing it.

40. It's the teenage equivalent of proposing on a stadium scoreboard.

Not cool with that, and I'm not cool with teens trying to ask celebrities out. Go with someone in your class, not Selena Gomez or Sofia Vergara, both of which I'm sure have much better things to do.
