If you've never seen Live P.D. let me tell you, my friend, you are missing out. Live P.D. comes on every Friday and Saturday night following six sheriff's departments around the United States from 9 p.m. -12 a.m. If you have no plans like me (I'm having a killer summer, BTW) but you also want to feel like you're doing something, I highly recommend you watch this show. It is pretty much "Cops" but 1000 times better because you are watching it live in real time.

Since I live in South Carolina, I get to see two counties in action in my state, Richland County being just about 15 minutes away. Once you watch a few times you will start to see familiar faces and start building favorite police officers, here are my top seven.

1. Deputy Chris Mastrianni, Richland County Sheriff's Department, South Carolina

Coming in at numero uno is my man Chris, or "Fastrianni" as he's known for his speed when running down suspects on foot. I'll say it, he's good looking (and probably married and he and his wife are probably so much in love that you have to also love them, BUT ANYWAYS.) As serious as Mastrianni is, he seems to have a genuine care for the people of Richland County. *Bonus fact: my friends and I call him Officer Juicy Lips because ya boy has got a serious pout.*

2. Deputy Kevin Lawrence, Richland County Sheriff's Department, South Carolina

Deputy Lawrence is the man. He is very cool with the people of Richland County and makes sure to listen to everyone and helps everyone remain calm. HOWEVER, don't mess with him, because if you're going to disrespect him he'll put you in your place for sure.

3. Sgt. Sean "Sticks" Larkin, Tulsa Police Department, Oklahoma

OKAY. He is a #silverfox. A father with a sleeve tattoo who works with the Tulsa Gang Unit. So I'm just going to go ahead and say he's cooler than most dads.

4.Trooper Todd Poole, Arizona State Troopers

This man is THICK. He could probably lift a car if he wanted to. On one episode he carried a lawnmower off the interstate and I'm sure it was crazy heavy. The picture above is truly my favorite, a suspect had run into a mall and for some reason that required an assault rifle.

5. Trooper James Casey, Arizona State Troopers

Trooper James Casey is chill. He's a kind man but of course, because he is a state trooper, he's obviously stern.

6. Cpl. Tony Moschetto, Calvert County Sheriff's Department, Maryland

MY MAN. Moschetto is the king of the Field Sobriety test. He also plays this mental game where he is both good cop AND bad cop, which is fascinating in itself. He's done so many DUI checks that I'm pretty sure I could test someone's sobriety myself if needed.

7. Dtc. Tim Mohler, Calvert County Sheriff's Department, Maryland

This dude looks like Tintin. I put him in her because he looks like Tintin. That's it. He's also pretty chill as well. If you don't know who Tintin is he is a cartoon character and you can see him here. (It's crazy isn't it?)

Bonus: Hosts Dan Abrams and Ted Morris Jr.

Dan the man and Tom are always live in the studio keeping you updated on the night. Tom uses his police knowledge to help give an explanation to any questions that come up. Dan is there with his sweater vest running the show. They're great.

I hope I opened your eyes to the best show I've literally ever seen. Enjoy!

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

Cops Shouldn't Be Allowed To Text And Drive

Are they above the law that applies to the rest of us?

124

Let's talk about that cop that ran into a cyclist. Recently the following video went viral. In it, GoPro footage shows the cyclist, Joe Fasanello, riding down a side road and then stopping at a stop sign at an intersection. The cyclist waits for cars to pass and, while waiting, a police car, driven by Officer Charles Wallace, turns onto the road the cyclist is on and runs into the cyclist head-on.

The following video is NSFW and includes explicit language.

The cyclist seems okay, as he was standing and heard talking. The officer tells him something about having to call another officer and then pulls his car over to the side of the road and returns to the aid of the cyclist. The cyclist asks the officer why he was texting and driving. The officer responds: "I wasn't texting, I was looking at my phone."

The biker was mostly uninjured, and was able to stand and speak, but was badly bruised and scraped. His bike was also broken and ruined. He did not seek medical attention at a hospital because he believed it was unnecessary. However, it is unclear whether he will be compensated for his bike.

Now, this incident happened in Peculiar, Missouri, and as part of normal procedures, the officer has been suspended with pay until the investigation is over.

This incident has sparked some outrage and much conversation. Police officers are often seen as distracted drivers because of their constant use of technology. For the most part, their use of technology is not against the law, because it is part of their job. However, it is also dangerous. Cops cannot be trained to safely text or use their laptops and drive, however, they often do, causing unsafe driving.

It is currently illegal in most states to text and drive or use a mobile phone to use the internet and drive. Cops issue citations daily for this, but are practically exempt from that law. The cop in the video tried to justify his actions because he wasn't "texting." Whatever he was doing, though, it caused impaired driving. He didn't see the biker waiting at the stop sign before he made the turn, he drifted into the opposite lane and again didn't see the biker in front of him in time to stop or swerve.

Now the main problem most people have with this case is that it is the exact opposite of what would have happened if it was a pedestrian that had hit a biker or even a bicycle officer. If they were to hit another pedestrian, they would be charged with distracted driving and would be held responsible for any injuries to the biker or the bike itself. If they were to hit a bicycle cop, they would not only be charged with distracted driving but would also be charged with harming a police officer, which would mostly end up in jail.

There should be stricter laws concerning what police officers are and aren't allowed to do while driving. While it is imperative at some points for them to use technology, they should learn how to do so safely, without injuring pedestrians.
