This occurred in September of 2011 and has already appeared on Fark at least once. Heck, they've already settled the lawsuit.

Me neither.  At least I got to see it before it disappears.

Too bad we can't smack the shiat out of the cops.  I'd rather see that happen than give money away.  Glad they caught it on tape.

So here's a nice illustration of what I was talking about a few posts down regarding MPD live-tweeting prostitution busts. People's lives are going to get ruined and these are the folks we're trusting to get the arrests right.

Uh huh.

Yeah, tfa-- now that I've read it-- says all that. Tfa is telling us the outcome. It's not a repeat. At most the tag needs to be changed to Followup.

Yeah, and cops are some of the biggest pervs going, influenced I guess by what they see. Or, that's who wants to be a cop? Must have some issues/guilt to take glee in the "Oooooh, you had SEX!" busts. Sad.

You wouldn't let someone tase you for 270,000 bucks?
 
2014-05-03 04:42:20 AM  
The F'ed up thing is that even if they had the right guy the cop who pulled him out of the car should by all rights still be prosecuted for felony assault, yet even with it being the wrong guy that officer probably walked away with a minor warning at worst.

at least the police department fired him.

Oh, wait.  They didn't do anything, he's still there
 
2014-05-03 05:23:53 AM  
And still no criminal charges filed against the cops despite them committing at least one felony.

protip: if a cop tells you to get out of your car, and 14 seconds later, you still haven't gotten out - it's not felony assault to drag your ass out.

So you're sucking theses cops d**ks for harassing, arresting, and threatening to plant evidence on an innocent man because...

A) All innocent black men deserve this type of treatment, after all, they're all guilty of something.
B) You're addicted to cop c*m.
C) All of the above

So, you'd expect him to just jump out of the car? Thats a good way to get shot, and the cops would high-five each other and be given medals.

In any encounter with a Police officer, even chit-chatting at the gas pump, assume you are being questioned and in danger of your life. They are under no obligation whatsoever to obey the law.

That's because you didn't see the WHOLE video. You only saw the edited version that left out the context.
If this ever gets in front of a jury, they'll have to aquit once they get to see why these police officers planted evidence on what was admittedly the wrong guy, a la Rodney King. The jury will see.
 
2014-05-03 09:27:42 AM  
The town is just up the road from me. I assume it's the same as little po-dunk "cities" all over the US, the PD is a romper room for community-college graduates in Copology, too scared to join the military to get proper training but still inordinately fond of their GI Joe collection, a place to log in some hours until you get hired on by the Staties (where the real money is).

You see how quick you libs are to play the race card?
Did anyone in that video mention anything at all about the suspect's race?  No.
The fact of the matter is that the police could have done this to a white man in a suburban neighborhood, too.

If you people are serious about healing the racial divide in this nation, stop slavishly following the Democrats and consider the path of true freedom offered by the Republi-

Oooowwwwww, cramp cramp CRAMP!  Shiat!
Sorry, that thing about the white suburban man was too much.  Gonna have to walk it off...

Exactly.  That was my first thought.  Any defense attorney worth his salt would have that video on cue, ready to hit "play" whenever one of those officers took the stand.  Right now, they're all liabilities to their department.

Yes, it is. To undo your seatbelt, get your wallet and registration papers and exit the car might reasonably take 14 seconds. Even if he refused to get out, an explicit warning is called for, prior to using force. "Sir, if you do not exit the vehicle we will be forced to remove you." See how easy that is? The real news is not that the police did these things, but that people like you don't see it as a problem.
