Another video of innocuous behavior appearing to be troublesome at first, and then spinning out of control when the person is mildly belligerent when confronted?

Let's look at it from the liquor store's perspective.

They're probably in a state of continual defense for previously-allowing loitering, so were forced to hire a guard to shoo away people, or lose their liquor license.  The guard was checking the guy out for appearing to loiter and drinking out of a can.  Soda cans have been known to be filled with intoxicating beverages to trick those in authority (I did it myself all the time in college).  The apparent loiterer wouldn't hand the can over for inspection or smelling, so the situation escalated into an arrest.

Seriously, people, when will the common sense of realizing the situation from the other party's perspective kick in and avoid these stupid complaint videos?

Once again I have mixed feelings on this one so again I will go with my theory that everyone in the world is an insufferable douchenozzle.

There is no way in hell I'm handing over my beverage to a complete stranger who walks up to me and demands it.  Maybe if he was acting as a security gaurd, he should have been dressed like one or in some way proven his credentials before making demands.  This cop is a piece of shiat who just wants to throw his weight around.  The victim was arrested for Contempt Of Cop and for Being Black In Public.

Electric_Banana: I'm surprised the cops never told them to stop filming.  I know there was a cop car in Part 2, but something about this doesn't seem right to me.


I feel exactly the same way ...the whole thing smells of being staged.

fickenchucker: boyvoyeur: Although he also could have just given the security guy the can to show no alcohol. Pulling away like that escalates it.

THIS^^^^^^^

Society is give and take.  Technically the guy was loitering, so just give up the can and everyone would have been cool.


Then you go from " Suspected there was alcohol in the can" to " I smelled alcohol in the can" whether there was any or not. Innocent or guilty NEVER give a cop anything to use against you. It says in the Miranda rights "anything you say CAN and WILL be used against you. Not   MAY or  MIGHT. A cop can turn anything you do or say into a confession really quick. I would hope that "cop" lost his job but he probably got a promotion

craigdamage: The dude should have politely handed him the can and said: "I didn't put any alcohol in this"


Why?  Who says he was a cop?  He never properly identified himself.  Maybe he was some jackhole who wanted to slip something into the guy's drink and he's pretending to be a cop to get his hands on it.  No ID? Sorry, you're not a cop.

2:13 - "My badge is right here, you've got 5 seconds to leave."

Parking lot of a business is not public property and you can be asked to leave at any time for any reason. If you refuse, the business can ask that you be removed by law enforcement.

If a cop (looks to be,) you're disobeying a lawful order (trespassing - refusing to leave.)

If not a cop, same result. If he's acting as an agent/employee of the liquor store, he's asking that you leave - he doesn't need a reason.

Turns out, he's a cop (if you watch the whole thing.)

Except this is one of those things you don't really have to stage.
This shiat happens often enough that you don't really need to put in all the effort to actually stage it.


Oh, I agree about that.  I'm as white as you can get and I've been "hassled" by the man plenty of times.  I probably would have just said "here, take a smell if you think it is liquor".  I've learned in my years that you aren't going to beat the police on the street.  Letting a cop take a whiff of my Arnold Palmer is not that big of a deal to me.

Just seems fishy to me that the guy identified himself as th po' lease and they never told anyone to stop filming.  Even if it is real, I really wouldn't be surprised to learn that they were hanging out there and filming just to get a reaction out of somebody.

I wouldnt have given that jackwagon the can either. I dont hate cops by any means, but that powertripping a-hole needs to calm the F down.

wow... and cops wonder why no one likes them... what is it with white cops when confronting people of color (black, mexican, etc.). do they have something to prove? and I am not trying to be snarky. it's a serious question. seems that every time something like this happens the enforcer is usually white and the 'victim' is black/brown/shades of color...

Got to side with the brother on this one. Once security found out it wasn't alcohol, he could have easily said "dude, we have trouble all the time here. I thought you were drinking. You weren't. But hanging out in this parking lot, looking like your drinking, gives us alot of trouble. Can you either go buy something or move on? I don't need people loitering. It's a big pain in my ass. Thanks"
