Um, this happens everywhere. Not just Richmond, VA. Not just relatives of cops(and Fark LOOOOOOOOOVES to hate cops). Cops, politicians, 'important' businessmen, celebrities. Nor is it new. I'm not saying it's right, but this seems like a non-story.

It's a story because it was caught on video.

Ubiquitous personal recording devices-- cellphones, mainly-- are going to make it very hard for this kind of behavior to continue.  Mayors and police chiefs don't want the bad publicity, and the OIC (officer in charge of the scene) isn't going to be so willing to do a professional courtesy that could cost him/her a job and a pension.

And while I don't have the usual Fark fervor for cop-hate, I do recommend the ACLU-NJ app that lets you record and automatically store cellphone video on their servers.  They can take your cellphone and destroy it or erase the video, but they can't stop the signal, Mal.

Corruption is always a non-story when the corrupt aren't caught in the act. When they are, it becomes a story about corruption, for which people seem to take interest.

So since other corrupr groups get cops to pull this shiat, it is no big dealw hen cops pull this shiat?

That is the line of defense you are taking in this case of cops being worse than most people they lock up?

New reports this morning. The young lady was NOT drunk, she was "hysterical", and the officer that picked her up was not a member of the RCPD.

Used to happen around Austin, till a bunch of APD cops got drunk and drove home on their motorcycles. The police chief went off the side of the road on 71, killed him and his wife. The county sheriffs office stopped ignoring apd driving drunk after that.

One would like to think so but in this police state even video does nothing.

GA - cops are videoed gunning down a Preacher. Fellow cops cover up the fact that at least 1 (possibly more) of the trigger men are not even legally allowed to be cops and nothing happens.

CA - Cops open fire on two women. DA states cops can fire on anyone at any time they feel nervous.

Rodney king video - Not guilty.

NY - Cops (who are members of a gang) recorded participating in beating of SUV driver. Nothing happens.

The list goes on and on and on. We're past any semblance of justice.

This kind of corruption continues because people like you allow it.

The abuse of the justice system is always news. The fact that you seem to have given up and decided it's OK to live in an unjust shiat hole of a world? That's pathetic.

listen up folks, its IS a non story. the only thing that happened was that this poor little white girl from either Chesterfield, or Henrico county, got lost up in Church hill.
She saw a group of inner city black people. Being a little white girl from the county, she immeditly freaked the fark out, fearing that she was going to raped, robbed and beaten, gunned the engine, ran a stop sign, over corrected and got nabbed by the beat cops who irrounisly thought she was intoxicated.

once all this came to light, she was free to go back home to Wyndhm, but her nerves were so frazzled by nearly being beaten robbed and raped AND video'd by her assalients, she was in no condition to drive, so she called her father, who just HAPPENS to also be a cop in one of the nieghboring counties, to pick her up and take her home..


geez people... have some syphathy here.

Sure, and it would be just as easy (but tedious, so I'm not a-gonna) to make a list of instances where the video made all the difference.  Actually, one in Bloomfield, NJ was just posted on Fark the other day.  Sure, it won't be perfect.  I only said video is going to make it very hard to continue shenanigans.  And in a good number of instances, someone in a blue uniform or a City Hall suit is going to decide it's too hard, and a bad cop is going to lose his uniform.  Bottom line: while I might not relax until it was over, I'd feel a whole lot better with a video than without.  Wouldn't you?

Well I encourage you to follow this story and get a greenlight when the crooked cops in this story get busted.
