Instead of getting in their car and leaving these clowns stood around trying to figure out how they could escalate the situation. Dude with the stupid beard with his hand on his gun, woman getting OUT of the car, they wanted something to go down for sure.


heckastupidd

There was one of them being a good sport. He was smiling and you could obviously tell he thought it was kinda funny to. But then there was one that looked like he was about to murder all of them for laughing lol

That's embarrasament laughing

It took a Supreme Court case, then two additional lawsuits afterwards to get there. Gun laws are inherently racist. Edit: 3 lawsuits

Fellow DC Native! I used to watch the cops harass people over by Columbia Heights (before they built it up). Good times.


meow_rchl

Im just gonna start yelling "MACARONI" at people now, and never know why.


Visual-Technician598

Just stick a feather in your cap first


regoapps

I never understood that part of the lyrics so I looked it up. The song is basically making fun of Americans for being bootleg British aristocrats. "Macaroni" was basically a term for men who were very fashionable (i.e. wealthy). It involves wearing fancy wigs, gaudy shoes, tapered waists, tight pants, fancy walking sticks and etc. And the song is saying that Americans are stupid for thinking that they could be "macaroni" by just sticking a feather in their hat. The whole song is basically calling Americans rednecks. Ironically, the term later became a negative thing, as "macaroni" were later seen as too feminine. Fashion can be fickle like that.


YeastUnleashed

So are feathers in, or out?

Always in.

hundreddollar

Do you mean bird leaf?


OGSquidFucker

Totally in


nyenbee

Thx for the etymology of the "song".


regoapps

No problem. If anyone's wondering why American kids are singing it now, it's because while it started off as a song sung by British soldiers to mock American soldiers for being simpletons, Americans changed the lyrics to it to make it a song about defiance and praise for George Washington.


TripleFFF

There's an American version?! I have to find that now


regoapps

Unless you're a British soldier in 18th century, I think you've been hearing the American version. The British version had lyrics like: > Yankee Doodle came to town, For to buy a firelock, We will tar and feather him, And so we will John Hancock. > The seventeen of June, at Break of Day, The Rebels they supriz'd us, With their strong Works, which they'd thrown up, To burn the Town and drive us. > Yankey Doodle came to town, How do you think they serv'd him? One took his bag, another his scrip, The quicker for to starve him.


ShadowSpectre47

'Yankee Doodle' was originally a British song to make fun of Americans, during the Revolutionary War. But, after the Americans won, they played it at the British as they were heading back, in defeat, and embraced the song to "add insult to injury". Basically Americans were saying, "Haha, you lost to these 'Yankee Doodle Dandies', so what does that make you?" or the equivalent of using a bully's exact same insult against them while they're down. I dug up this comment, that I remembered from years ago, that has what a modern translation of the song would be like. https://reddit.com/r/todayilearned/comments/azafel/til_that_a_macaroni_as_mentioned_in_yankee_doodle/ei6f9ig And the reply to it, which keeps those modern lyrics it in the same song format. https://reddit.com/r/todayilearned/comments/azafel/til_that_a_macaroni_as_mentioned_in_yankee_doodle/ei80axs


taosaur

That makes the use in the video right on point. That's some historically accurate smack.


ScabbedOver

Sad to see that got so little love


kaihatsusha

While we are talking about confident men and the fashion of feathers in caps, that's where the word *panache* comes from.


UhOhFeministOnReddit

I will never understand how women's fashion became so protean and cyclical whereas men's fashion devolved into very drab and boxy designs with very little variation or character. Men used to be some flossy bitches back in the day. It's a shame homophobia drummed that out of the culture. There's so much cool stuff guys miss out on. Bath bombs are another big one. I talked my brother into using a Big Blue from Lush and he called me like, "What the fuck else are girls hiding?" Though he also yelled at me for neglecting to mention there was seaweed in it. That was my bad. I should have mentioned it.


lAMA_Bear_AMA

Counterpoint: We have pockets.


DingusFringle

One of my friends would always try to drum up girls in the group to rise against the no pockets fashion. One day he bought a new pair of pants that had fake pockets and didn't realize till putting them on. Lost his fucking mind. I felt bad for laughing but damn was that shit entertaining.


lastplaceonly

I feel like “Redneck” doesn’t fit consistently. They were calling them low class which matches with current definition stereotypes of rednecks. But I feel like we associate rednecks with blue collar work. Calling someone “macaroni” more has a connotation of saying they’re “new money”, “hood rich”, a “poser”. Basically making fun of someone for not coming for the aristocracy but being successful enough for excess. Which doesn’t really exist as an insult in America because one of the ideals is the “American dream” of being a nobody and making it(whether that’s true or not). So it’s pretty logical that early Americans wore it like a badge. Brits: “You low class nobodies don’t come from real class even if you’re acting like you can rule” Americans:”Thats the point, were proud of that, and reject your way of rule.”


BocaRaven

Oh man. That killed me


meow_rchl

Okay so urban dictionary at the bottom says its a slur Jamaicans use to describe a "stupid individual" based.


[deleted]

Jamaican here. Never heard this expression. Maybe it's new but a stupid individual is foo-fool (repetition for emphasis) or idiot (pronounced eediot).

MACARONI


THEBAESGOD

it sounds like they're switching between Maroney and Macaroni so I think they're mocking a cop named Maroney


Tark001

I thought he was calling him "Mahoney" as in the guy from Police Academy. I thought it was a bit of an old reference.


1Viking

I kept hearing Pepperoni (but admittedly I’m listening at a very low volume) and couldn’t understand why they’d be saying that. Now that you’ve educated me as to the proper word, I’m still just as lost…


waitingfordeathhbu

I also heard pepperoni; figured it was a “pigs” reference

Macaroni?? Was someone saying Macaroni in the background? But yes, hilarious.


iceroas

slang for stupid person


SheridanWithTea

It's so funny and almost humorous that I wouldn't even be offended, just laugh at whoever called me a **macaroni**. Like if I just called someone a börek or something.

Looool calling someone börek 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

**Hey, it's not funny you BÖREK!!** hahaha

This just reminded me that my brother sometimes calls stupid people a cabbage lmaoo


CEEEEEEBS

Borek is delicious, indeed. What's your favourite type?


whynotchez

Cheeeeeeeeese


hmiamid

It was an old racist insult for Italians in Belgium... Didn't know why it was here though...


Ickythumplol

That's very strange, because "Maccarone" is a pretty popular and mild insult in the Napolitan dialect. It's a kinda benevolent way to call someone stupid and/or clumsy.


freeLightbulbs

Yanky doodle went to town riding on a pony, stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni. Was written by a pommy mocking seppos as stupid.


sirloinmcmeat

Pommy and seppo in the same sentence,are you Australian?

BlackSpurs69

I think he was saying the cop's last name which sounded like macaroni.


2morereps

turns out it's it's jamaican slang for a stupid individual. not sure how accurate it is.


MetaEatsTinyAnts

It just became common in my house


Villagedrunkinjun

sounds pretty macaroni


a_berdeen

Lol no there was [a video](https://youtu.be/d0mUOB1lweg?t=57) a few years ago of a guy named Macaroni in JA driving a bus into a flood and disabling it, but it's not common slang whatsoever.


2morereps

ah I see, yeah urban dictionary said something about macaroni being an idiot but especially a bad driver, so im guessing if it is a thing then that video is the origin. and so if the video was viral and those guys saw it maybe its a reference but it makes no sense cuz no ones driving but then it makes no sense to say macaroni at all.


RetardedSquirrel360

“AHHHH-HAAAAA” “MACARONI !” “AHHHH-HAAA” “STUPID BITCH!”🤣🤣🤣


RocketScient1st

Glad the cops admitted they were wrong and let the guy go without bringing a bogus charge or escalating the situation. This is how policing should work.


MasterBigBean

At least that one cop seemed to have a decent attitude about it

TxOutlaw24

I thought the same thing when the comment before said he had a long chin


sa250039

Damn man you've got a license now get a real holster, your going to shoot your nuts off. Edit. Yes I see that he probably has a holster. I just wanted to be able to say someone might shoot their nuts off.


Mr_Podo

Very well coulda been an appendix holster. Appendix carry is actually a very popular way to carry a firearm. Edit: Yeah, looking back on the video you can see him looking for the opening of the holster. If he didn’t have a holster he wouldn’t have to bother. Edit: a word.


Drone_temple_pilots

A lot of people don't know what that is, I didn't until I opened this comment section


BossRedRanger

Obviously. Most people don't know much at all about firearms or accessories. That's why the debates over them are so skewed.


Savome

How do you know he didn't have a holster? The camera doesn't catch that part


LemonPoopyDumpling

He also clarified later he did have a holster it was just out of sight


Savome

Yeah that's exactly what it looked like to me. The way he was holding the gun looks like he was trying to reholster.


i_got_skrimps

When I was a kid, a friend used to ride* windows down with 2 shoulder holsted 9mm. Black dude, dreads, big rims.. everything a cop wanted to see. They were both legal. He used to to get pulled over all the time. Back then I didn't get it, now I do. Good on him.


ejaytee

Is this normal? Is there any context? From a country where this kinda thing wouldn’t happen cause of gun laws, but I feel like this is the entire point of a licence to carry? Cops checking on a person carrying a gun to see if it’s registered and the holder licenced seems to be reasonable to me?


TemperateSloth

It is reasonable if the person is behaving suspiciously, but the threshold for suspicion can be quite different


Agent_Orange7

How would they know he had a gun? It looks like it was in a waistband holster under a shirt, so it would have been concealed. If he was being stopped and searched for something else then it makes sense, but what was he stopped for in the first place?


Apophis90

For DC, this is pretty much the norm. MACARONI!!


desepticon

As funny as this is, that guys gonna shoot his dick off one of these days if he's not careful.


Bruins_8Clap

He could be appendix carrying. This is where I carry my firearm in a holster as well. It’s not uncommon at all.


Anus_master

How do you get the handle in? Every time I shove my gun up my asshole it doesn't get anywhere near my appendix


TacticalPenisPump

You're not shoving it hard enough.


Schumacher242

That’s how I carry as well.


zacharoobonzai

Cops who can take a L is best case scenario. Imagine if any of them had a fragile ego.

Say_wutagain

Ngl the comments on this post rival the video itself


abssba1

How is nobody saying anything about how stupid it is to laugh about that


Testiculese

It's the release of the frustration of consistent and constant harassment that these people have to endure on a possibly daily basis. Finally, *for once*, the police couldn't do anything. Couldn't make up anything. Couldn't plant anything. Put that guy away illegally for years, creating yet another hardened criminal from an innocent civilian. I'm going to go ahead and reasonably assume that these cops, if not personally, then as a whole, deserved everything they got. Though I do feel it was ridiculously, unnecessarily, over the top.
