He didn't shoot her and he didn't tase her. Not even pepper spray. What do you people want?
 
2012-10-01 08:57:41 PM
The sound of getting her bell rung like that will undoubtedly sounds like a cash register soon.

Kinda hard to talk your way out of that one, "officer".
 
2012-10-01 09:03:03 PM
This is why you have to resist all attempts to prevent photography and videography in public of Police. Without this video, this guy gets away with it, with the video she probably gets a hefty payout and he'll probably lose his job. Which he should.

Judging by the uniform, I'd say "Captain" is more apt.

Even if she did hit him with silly string (and I see very little evidence of that), what kind of dickbag do you have to be where your first reaction is to strike someone in the face?

nah, pretty easy actually. during the mandatory search at the police station, a quantity of drugs was found in this persons possessions. enough to lock them up for a couple/few years. however, the cops talked to the DA's office - if the victim signs off on the lawsuit AND agrees to a gag order, then no drug charges will be filed. everyone walks away clean!

easy-peasey up and easy.

No, no, no. You have to look at it from the prospective that the lowest common denominator will. You know, White, lower class America.

She was a woman who didn't shut her mouth.

No American would ever convict a man for doing that. It's out of love, not abuse, you see.

Yeah. This isn't an average patrolman. If it were a reaction punch I could see where maybe she shouldn't have done that, but that farker went after her.
 
2012-10-01 09:29:45 PM
She was in Philly. She ain't shot.

I'd call it a W for her.

Extra bonus, lawsuit. (Or, hopefully, an apology in the form of a nice dinner and a fruit basket. Punitive lawsuits damage everyone.)

honestly, I think the best way to 'fight back' is to just film it and upload to the internet soon as you can. we're already living in a 'surveillance society' and we can't stuff the technological genie back in the bottle. might as well push this thing further and make sure law enforcement and the elites are open source as well. sure, they'll pitch a fit about it but..they'll find it difficult to write a 'rich person/law enforcement' only provision into the law and they end up protecting all us little folks in the process. And if they don't change the law, then everyone else will get to monitor the cops and elites in real time just like they want to watch us. And then everyone is happy.

Just because that dopey chick turned her back right before getting slugged doesn't make that a sucker punch. The Shoalin Tinkerbell defense is no match for a good slip

Although his method of controlling the suspect was a bit farked up, when she turned away from him, she did have what appeared to be a can of Silly String in her left hand and can be seen laying on the ground at her feet after being cold-cocked.

And what makes anyone think that just because this was filmed the cop gets punished? When do cops ever get punished for the crap they pull? He's going to get a paid vacation.

I was with you up until "everyone is happy". I for one am decidedly unhappy to be living in a society where the fact that technology has made it easier to watch people has led most of them to believe that the privacy rights granted by the Constitution are just words on a piece of paper.

Turns out the sound part is illegal
 
2012-10-01 10:23:00 PM
Here's the thing with the use of force.

She wasn't resisting, she wasn't fighting, she wasn't doing a damn thing but turning her back on the officer. The punch was totally unnecessary and the guy should be fired.

Nope... Though some cops may prefer otherwise. Note: "If an arrest is to be made of a citizen for videotaping officers in public it should be related to an officer's concerns other than a desire to prevent the taping." The article goes on to explain how they can manufacture some conditions to make an arrest, but they might be advised to be sure that this too isn't being recorded unless they have a real case for it. Have a look at the DoJ perspective.

Won't hold up, those attempts are failing all over the place, read my DoJ link. Police have no expectation of privacy in the performance of their duties, nor should they.

You do know that there's no legal expectation of privacy when in public right? Its not like you can take a dump in the middle of the street and expect that people should look the other way to respect your privacy... Doesn't work like that.

Very clearly at seconds 2 & 3 can a man be seen throwing what looks like water at the cops from the extreme left of the screen.

Suppose you thought a small frame policewoman splashed you with water, so you punched her in the face while she was looking away from you. You knock her to the ground then jerk the policewoman's arms up behind her so that her rotator cuffs in her shoulders tear (common practice by police and can be seen in the video). What would you expect would happen to you as an average citizen? Would you expect to walk away? Would you expect jail time?

Why do police have more protection under the law when they commit brutal acts than anyone else on the street?

I say the best punishment for the cop would be to receive a sucker punch from Mike Tyson.
Put it on pay per view and give the proceeds to the woman.

That's only partly true. In some parts of the country the police have the right to privacy in public places. In some places it's against the law to video record police doing their jobs. Maryland was one of those places until a court overturned it. Maryland would charge people videoing police with wiretapping. Which is a ten year prison sentence.

Worth a read... DoJ Letter

I think, should this happen to you, you might well be advised to appeal up and out of the state. As you noted "until a court overturned it" is very important, the Police may be trying, but the legal system is denying them. The problem is the public doesn't really seem to know their rights, so they easily give them up with pleading lesser charges. Being an avid photographer, I dig into this stuff because it's relevant, even though I'm not a US citizen or resident. I do travel, quite a bit, and so I do research on this. For myself, I have no interest in videography, let alone the videography of police, but I do like to know if I face restrictions using my camera in public and for the most part, many of the "restrictions" we hear of are made up and false by people who think they know, but don't.

A federal appeals court (1st Circuit) has held pretty squarely that there is a right to record the police in public, and the number of states with statutes that expressly prohibit it are a small minority. The tide really seems to be turning against the idea that people can be arrested for filming the police in public. Of course that may not stop Officer Friendly from dishing out a beatdown if you fail to respect his/her authority obstruct the officer in the course of an investigation.

Then, afterwards, sue the shiat out of them. The one thing that will put an end to false arrests on this is money, always money. When money become involved, the cops who don't toe the line don't stay employed.
