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?

Actual vid of the incident Liveleak, no advertising.

Some dude sprays a little water, and the cop sucker punches the first woman he sees. I wonder how many women have had their cheekbones or noses broken by this guy over the years? I'd be willing to bet dozens. Cops are the number one domestic violence offenders in the country. They're allowed to get away with it, because they're "heroes". The entirety of Police Culture protects these people.

This guy beat his wife, brutally for years. She'd been hospitalized several times with broken bones, and when she tried to report it, other officers would pay her a visit, and made it quite clear to her that any attempt by her to pursue charges would result in her disappearance or charges filed against her. The day before this incident, the cops tried to force her into an unmarked car at gunpoint because she'd testified about her abuse in a deposition only a few hours earlier.

This cop was still being called a hero at his funeral, and several thousand Police officers attended, while his wife was being excoriated in the press. Because of this incident, a law was passed that required the mandatory suspension and loss of all weapons for any law enforcement official accused of domestic violence. The law also required the loss of the Law Enforcement license for any Officer convicted of domestic violence. The Police Union fought this law tooth and nail and are still trying to get it changed back. They actually believe that is is their absolute right to brutalize their wives and children. They have said so, in so many words.

That's the funniest and most inaccurate I've read on Fark in a long time. Cops are, by far, Republicans.


At one time, they might have been.

They are now the Sheriff of Nottingham's men. They rob, pillage and kill under Color of Law, and are the Thin Blue Line between the peasants and the Federal Nobility. They make noises about an Oath they took, but damned few are vets. Why do you think they like to copy actual combat troops? Skin heads, Bloused boots, SWAT teams with automatic weapons, and they don't even have to worry about IEDs! It's why the get a stiffy thinking about shooting some little old lady. They get to play cowboys and Arabs, with no UCMJ to interfere with their fun.

The local Powers That Be don't want people smart enough to question whatever laws they are told to enforce. Local civic leaders prefer recruiting the coward/bullies from high school who liked setting fire to small animals. The Local Mayors then complain about civilians having guns, and the Left Side of the IQ Bell Curve nod their heads... Dem/Repub has nothing to do with it.

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.

The problem is the culture that makes reporting misconduct career suicide. That culture can only exist if a) the rank and file overwhelmingly believes in it and b) the chain of command tolerates it

Good cops should all turn on the dirty ones, not close ranks and protect them. The fact that they don't is a scathing indictment of the entire system and culture.

Nope. He gives cops in general more latitude because it seems, in purely my observation, that he believes that Farkers hold CLEO's to unfairly high standards that would require information that the CLEO couldn't have had at the time.

Isn't it a shame that this is even a debate? WHen I was a kid, a part of our Social Studies education about America was the fact that our public officials, including the police, were supposed to be held accountable by the public. Something like being able to film or tape police made sense, even in the 70's and 80's before the tech really existed.

Of course, the saddest part is the fact that this cop helps ruin it for the legitimate cops out there, and despite what farkers claim, there are plenty of good cops out there, people who became cops for the RIGHT reasons, shiat like this just makes more and more people become convinced that every single cop is dirty.

Actually:
1. She did have what appeared to be SOMETHING in her hand. The only people who can look at that video and call it anything specific besides a cylindrical object are those completely unbelieveable jack-nuts on TV shows and movies who take 7-11 footage and "enhance" it to count how many whiskers someone 400 yards from the camera has. The rest of us see a pixellated "something".

2. FTFA: At the same time, a young woman is walking past - who also gets hit by the liquid.
As she turns around to see where it came from
, a police officer in a white shirt - which means he has acquired the rank of sergeant - comes towards the woman and delivers a brutal punch to her face, knocking her to the ground.


3. Even if she WAS carrying a can of silly string, and even if she HAD sprayed it at people, that in no way whatsoever justifies battery by ANYONE. We have laws and a justice system for a reason, and ironically, the police are supposed to be the mature ones that only use forces when it is absolutely necessary.

For that to work, you'd need to change the rules on sovereign immunity, eliminate the "good faith" loophole, and prohibit the Nuremberg defense in misconduct cases.

As it stands now, cops have near zero personal criminal or civil liability for anything they do in the line of duty. You can almost never sue an individual cop - the best you can do is sue the entire department.

NFA: spqr_ca: You do know that there's no legal expectation of privacy when in public right?

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.

Make it a girl...well....even with the best of intentions this country is still sexist as hell. Women's rights only extends in the direction we all think it should. Not in the 'true equality' sense. Women are still considered more weak and more frail.

Then make the other guy a cop? And now everyone wants to hate them.

I know, I know, people are going to call me a troll, which is fine. I also realize that this is a POTENTIALLY slippery slope. But at the end of the day, I'm really okay with living in a world where if you act like a complete douchbag you might get punched in the face.


So who exactly gets to determine where the "douchebag line" is? Is it you? Me? The individual cop on the street? What standard can be applied to define exactly what behavior constitutes douchebaggery, or is that left to individual interpretation? If it were up to me, you'd be getting punched in the face right now for making such ignorant and thoughtless comments, because I consider people who would suggest physical violence as an appropriate response to silly string to be complete douchebags.

Do you admit that doing so would likely effectively end your career and earn you the undying hatred of your "brother" cops?

Your definition of "misconduct" and the one held by the public are worlds apart, and you don't even seem to recognize that fact.

I'm sure you think of yourself as one of the "good guys". I'll even give you the benefit of the doubt and say you've never personally done anything that the general public would consider misconduct, never used excessive force, never engaged in racial profiling, never arrested someone for contempt of cop, never even fudged a little on an arrest report or stretched the truth a bit on the stand. But I'll bet a week's pay that you've turned a blind eye to all of the above more than once, and that that you personally have given a fellow cop a free pass for an infraction you'd have cited or arrested a civilian for.


This, actually. Distrust of the police doesn't stem just from the fact that there are a few bad cops out there - it stems also from the fact that the rest of them close ranks to protect one of their own, just like any other gang, when an incident occurs. Where are the cops in that video pulling the sergeant off that woman and questioning why he felt it necessary to sucker-punch a non-resisting (and, in fact, completely unaware), unarmed person in the face?

When I see that actually happen - when, in the middle of a parade, a sergeant assaults an innocent person without cause or justification and is immediately taken down and cuffed by other officers as a result - then I'll start believing in the system once again. Not one cop stepped in on that video - the whole point of law enforcement is to enforce law, and if you're not willing to do it on those in power, what in the hell is the point in claiming that we're equal?

During my first weekend living in Philly (this past january), my housemates threw a party. Twenty-two cop cars showed up, for reasons we were never able to figure out, since no arrests were actually made, except the one guy who resisted after being tased. He was tased for not having ID. Another guy was also tased for not immediately showing ID, although he didn't resist. Another friend was detained, but not arrested, for five hours as a witness. ("am I under arrest?" -- "no" -- "can I go then?" -- "no" -- "I'd like to call my lawyer then" -- "you don't need a lawyer, you're not being charged" -- "then I'd ilke to go" -- "no").

I was told I'd be arrested for continuing to drink a beer in my own room (I'm 30), because re house was a crime scene ("what's the crime?" -- "we'll see")

Meanwhile, the owner of the house was on acid, screaming "what the fark is going on here" at the cops at the top of his lungs and was never touched.

Again, no underagers, no drugs were found.

Why yes, this was in West Philly, but outside of the University City district, why do you ask?

If they know he's a bad cop and they do nothing about it, they are equally culpable and therefore also bad cops. Cops who protect bad cops make the job harder for the ones who are actually good cops by destroying the public's trust in them.

Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: Huh. Plenty of cops around when he sucker-punched that woman. I counted ten in the image and at least four were looking directly at both the puncher and the victim. Not a single one of them did a goddamn thing about it. Are they good cops?


*snicker* that's probably why there's 10 cops right there. They all know this cop is a bad one, and they need to keep an eye on him. Did you notice that right after the incident, they're all completely occupied with blocking the view of everyone who saw him punch the girl?

the_chief: What is the solution to the cop problem?


More training (money).
More oversight (sadly, also costs money).
Better employees from the get go (I challenge those who believe all cops are unethical and power hungry to go be cops and people take it like an insult. We will sit around and say the job is paid plenty, maybe too much, but we won't sink to doing it ourselves, nor will we pay enough to attract people who are intelligent and driven for success but wouldn't want the position)

A better gang strategy than wait til they're 18 and then move them from a street gang to a prison gang so the job requires less of a focus purely on dealing with the violent. (i advocate physical isolation of prisoners for all violent felons - the influence of prison gangs on street gangs dramatically increases their violence). Also end prohibition and improve the education of the populace.

Fark_Guy_Rob: I'm glad the video was put out on the internet. It really aligns well with what I've come to expect from people and police.

See, the thing about police brutality nobody (except cops) wanna talk about is that, in nearly every case, the person deserved *something*. Maybe not a punch in the face - but seriously - what the hell is wrong with this woman. You've got a bunch of guys in their clean and pressed uniforms and you're going to walk up and spray them in the face with silly string? That's a giant dick move.

I remember everyone talking about Rodney King back in the day. Nobody ever mentioned how the other black guy in the car got out and didn't lead the cops on a high speed chase and how he didn't get beat. But no, everyone talked about the race thing and how cops in LA hated black people.

Did the girl deserve to get punched in the face? Eh. Probably. To be perfectly honest. If it were two guys at a bar - a lot more of you would be like 'Haha! Serves him right!'. Some douchbag sprays silly string in your face; you punch him. That's life. People would call him a hero. Make it a girl...well....even with the best of intentions this country is still sexist as hell. Women's rights only extends in the direction we all think it should. Not in the 'true equality' sense. Women are still considered more weak and more frail.

Then make the other guy a cop? And now everyone wants to hate them.

I know, I know, people are going to call me a troll, which is fine. I also realize that this is a POTENTIALLY slippery slope. But at the end of the day, I'm really okay with living in a world where if you act like a complete douchbag you might get punched in the face.

Sadly, what will probably happen is that she'll get a few hundred k worth of tax payer money. Now, instead of being a deterrent, more people are going to actively seek this crap out. I'd LOVE to get a huge payday for going around and being a dick until someone punches me.


as a member of law enforcement, you're supposed to act with more integrity and restraint than "a guy at a bar".

she shouldnt get a huge payout, but this dick lost his cool when he shouldnt and beat a woman for no good reason. he should be punished. if this isnt assault and battery i dont know what is.

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.


There's a reason courts keep overturning those public "wiretapping" laws is because those laws themselves are illegal. Thats because THERE IS NO EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY IN PUBLIC!

They keep trying... A few years ago, some city tried to cite a guy because he had security cameras outside his house, and the one in front of his door caught the cops being douche-nozzles. The city tried to claim it was a violation of the right to not be recorded without consent, ignoring the fact that the cameras either shot on the guy's public property, or of an area visible to the public, which are both legal areas to record in. The city eventually lost.

This doesn't mean that the cops don't keep trying, though. I've recently seen footage of them trying to stop someone on the street by merely saying that it was illegal to record police officers.

whyRpeoplesostupid: Yeah, different laws in different states. You're probably right though to get the Feds to take a look at it


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.

spqr_ca: You do know that there's no legal expectation of privacy when in public right?


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.

whyRpeoplesostupid: spqr_ca: 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.

I'm pretty sure there is a law in PA that prohibits video of the cops

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.

Weaver95: Calmamity: This kind of shiat is going to happen more and more often and people are starting to fight back.

It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

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.


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.

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.

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.)

Elvis_Bogart: Kinda hard to talk your way out of that one, "officer".


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.

The sound of getting her bell rung like that will undoubtedly sounds like a cash register soon.
