Arkanaut: Brownsville

Oh wow, is it black people-arrestin' season already? I thought for sure it would be delayed with all the snow we've gotten.


They are easier to find in the snow.

nyseattitude: Why isn't the Cop charged with falsifying a police report, conspiracy and perjury?


Cops cannot commit crimes. Comes with the badge.  You get like 20 mulligans and 3 gimmies.

Well, he was guilty of being black, so I can understand why the police treated him in this manner.

Harry Freakstorm: Of course, some states consider you 'operating' a motor vehicle if the keys are in the ignition and you're in the drivers seat.


So when I take my dog to the gas station with me, I leave the keys in the ignition, and she jumps into the driver's seat, she's technically driving? Awesome!

Rincewind53: SlothB77: wow.  once again, if there wasn't video, the crooked cop would have gotten away with it.  can't imagine all the times they must have gotten away with it before.

Exactly. Thank god for video.

This just emphasizes what I've known for years; police reports are routinely lies. Anyone who automatically believes what a police officer writes in his report is simply fooling themselves.

That's not to say that every police officer lies, or that that all reports are lies. But police officers  routinely embellish facts, and if they committed any wrongdoing themselves, expect them to lie about it.


Once in a very great while, you get a judge that publicly tells the cop he's full of shiat--in those words--and drops the charges.

*disclaimer: you must be white, the judge must be white, your witness must be white and a former state trooper, and the cop must be black and have no evidence to back up his claims. You must have photographic evidence, and reams of additional evidence to back up your claim that the officer in question is not, and I quote, "a human lie detector." But the main thing--you must be white. If you are black or brown and so are your witnesses, you're farked.

Ah, yes, the cop got him for the horrible crime of 'sitting in your car and minding your own business while black' or, SIYCAMYOBWB.

FitzShivering: jscart: From the video clip on the site, this guy was in the drivers seat and didn't "slide over". The end of the video show the guy leaving the door open and the cop at the rear. Hard to tell if he walked towards the front more.

Cop is still a dick, but if you don't have a license stay the fark out of the drivers seat in any vehicle.

Do you have a different video, are you on acid, or are you a police officer?


I'll try to explain with some pics.

That's the guy sitting in the drivers seat.

That's the guy getting out from the drivers door

That's the guy standing there see the color of his pants

That's the cop at the rear of the SUV, now a few seconds the video end, so we aren't sure if the guy does leave his door open.

Like I said
/Cop is still a dick, but if you don't have a license stay the fark out of the drivers seat in any vehicle.
//I'm not a cop either
///I just look at a good amount of security footage

Tr0mBoNe: I had a cop lie FOR me once.. it was pretty sweet. Turned a $500 ticket plus 1 week driving ban into a $120 dollar ticket. Turns out you shouldn't be caught going 135 kph in a 90 zone.

But, douchenozzle cops exist and boy they sure don't want cameras recording them.


Well, duh, you don't live in the US. I don't know for a fact if Canadian cops are better than US cops, but I would suspect it would be probable. Especially NYC cops.

hardinparamedic: What I want to know is did he have his lights and sirens on?

If he did, the fact he was going down a one way street isn't the problem, because all states have traffic exemptions for emergency services to disregard traffic laws, but they have to do so in a reasonable, safe manner. Requesting the right of way, not automatically granted it.

However, arresting the guy for something that should have garnered, at most, a citation, was a dick move, and an example of contempt of cop for embarassing him. Bad cop, no donuts for you.


if only there was a video of some sort to answer your question...


/no, he didn't have his lights on
