Depressed Police Officer Reminds Self That Chauvin Verdict Not Representative Of System At Large

MINNEAPOLIS—Shaken by the guilty verdict delivered in the trial of Derek Chauvin, local police officer Edward Margolin took comfort Tuesday by remembering that this outcome wasn’t representative of the system at large. “Moments like this can be tough, but it helps to take a step back and remember that this is the exception that proves the rule,” said Margolin, confirming that despite the conviction he still believed in the justice system’s fundamental purpose of exonerating police officers. “In these trying times, I remember everything I have to be grateful for—qualified immunity, powerful police associations, massive budgets, and all the officers I know who have done similar stuff to Chauvin and gotten away scot-free, and it starts to make me calm down. It’s important not to let a little hiccup like this make you lose sight of the big picture.” At press time, a cheerful Margolin had fully regained his faith in the system after taking out a baton and breaking a demonstrator’s arm.

Cadet Studying For Police Academy Exam Just Skimming Over Deescalation Training.

BLUE BELL, PA—In an effort to focus on practical skills, cadet Aaron Sanger studied for the police academy exam Monday by skimming over the sections in his training manual about deescalation techniques that he’ll never use in real life. “I guess I’m technically supposed to know this stuff, but there’s no way I’ll ever have to talk a suspect down in the field,” said Sanger, clarifying that using brute force would always be a “quicker and easier option” than going through a step-by-step deescalation process. “I’m focusing on the physical fitness portion of the test, so this mediation thing is falling to the wayside. If I ever do need to use it, I’ll just Google it while I’m pressing my knee on a guy’s neck. I’m not gonna waste my time studying laws, either. Most of them are really old and outdated—plus, it’s not like suspects know them.” At press time, Sanger was standing in front of a mirror and practicing how to tell a judge that he feared for his life before shooting a suspect.
