Officer with Personal Animus makes “Trumped Up Charges” against Motorcyclist

 

  • “You’re blocking the alley.” Proceeds to park 3 police cruisers blocking entire alley for 30 minutes

 

  • The fact that officers can’t get in trouble for acting like this is horrendous
  • Thank you, Garland PD for protecting citizens from dangerous alley-blockers whose motorcycles stick 3 inches into an alley for 2 minutes while attended by the owner. You are true heroes!

 

  • I used to be a cop. This young cop made a mistake and was desperately trying to save face but his his pride made it impossible for him to back off. I’ve seen this many times. The cop painted himself into a corner.

 

  • Crazy how ordinary citizens, know more about the law than the actual law officers. That is so so dangerous

 

  • It’s no longer protect and serve, it’s harass and assault.
    I’m just sick of it. We need to go back to the days of a sheriff and a couple deputies to enforce the big stuff (warrants, etc…). Let everyone protect themselves, cause police sure aren’t protecting anyone

 

  • My dad was Detroit police officer for 35 years. I’ll never forget when he told me that some police forget they took a oath to protect and serve, not bother and harass.

 

  • @Mark French they don’t teach law in the police training. If they don’t study up the law themselves then they don’t know it.

 

  • “There’s a disturbance in the area but we’re gonna have 3 officers stand here for 30 minutes while I try to illegally acquire your ID for your bike sticking out 6 inches” what a joke

 

  • “You know how this works.”
    “No i dont.”
    “Well maybe you need to be trained better.”

 

  • The insanity of all this is that they presumably stopped him for “blocking the alley”, even though he wasn’t, but they COMPLETELY blocked it for at least a half hour.

 

  • I love how the dad said “this is exactly why there’s a divide between the law and citizens”!

 

  • This is why civilians must be on all police review boards. Want this behavior to stop, this is the way. There should be no reason for police to resist this ,unless there covering for there own.

 

  • Regardless of the jaw dropping ignorance cops have of the law, there seems to be another very disturbing aspect to this.

 

  • It’s obvious that police are under huge pressure to run as many people through the system as possible.

 

  • The police are not motivated to serve and protect, but to meet quotas, and police will do anything to get them.

 

  • Police are not judged by how good they are at their jobs, their use of logic and knowledge of the law. Instead they are rated purely on the number of victims they can push through the system. The more victims they can run through the system the more likely they are to be protected by the system.

 

  • The fact the cops says “You think you’re in charge, you are not in charge right now” says all you need to know, this was a “Respect my Authority” moment.

 

  • The refusal of the Chief to meet up and the refusal to turn over the bodycam and dashcam footage tells us all we need to know, doesn’t it?

 

  • “I could arrest you, but I’ll write you a ticket instead!” Laugh-a-minute buffoon! Disabled motor vehicle is not an arrestable offence, just a lawsuit-able one! Ka-ching! Three thug cops down the drain! 🤣

 

  • Who oversees police certification in Texas? I’ve seen way too many videos of improper training by Texas officers for it to be a “department by department” problem at this point.

 

  • @J dER let alone none of them have knowledge of 38.02. yet people all over the world can quote 38.02 because of this. great call out

 

  • This is a textbook case of the cop doing EVERYTHING wrong! He starts off by lying and harassing this guy for no reason. He clearly doesn’t know much about the law that he’s been hired to enforce. He clearly was absent many times in training and doesn’t understand de-escalating a situation. From everything we see in this video, the problems appear to be from the top down The dad is right, it’s guys like this that cause a divide between police and the public. This video needs to be used in police training on what NOT to do as an officer. I’m not anti police, I actually think they have a very tough job, but there’s just too many “cowboys” out there that cause more issues than they fix!

 

  • @Robert Steele it wasn’t a traffic violation it was a parking violation so no he is not required to provide identification. It’s those little details that ARE relevant 😉

 

  • Ryan’s bodycam also captures the audio of his heartrate. It’s incredible how nervous people can be around police, our servant protectors. Police do not emanate safety vibes… They emanate terror.

 

  • Ummmmm… When the officer said “I’ll be seeing you again” it was an open threat and could mean anything . Now this young man and his family must live in fear of this officer and his department. Both he and his family should file protection orders against him and demand his dismissal as well as his arrest . Civil suits should ensue . If the body cam footage isn’t released at the hearings then thier superior officer should be fined as well .

 

  • Look how long it takes these officer to leave his property. Wow. Hope his attorney has a field day with him court.

 

  • Completely amazed that they have the perceived right to trespass citizens from public property and arrest them for not moving fast enough, yet move slower than molasses uphill in Winter time when they are on private property owned by that very citizen?!?

 

  • What a big man he is, he definitely was having a power trip. Stay strong and careful, always record. Much love from Queensland Australia 💜

 

  • Sad to say I guarantee that this poor guy is going to be hassled constantly around town in the future. It’s sad.

 

  • Great work by lackluster as normal. I want this guy in the Senate.

 

  • This is exactly the type of tactics that, left unchecked, open the door to a police state… they need to be challenged at every turn and people need to be fully aware of and well versed in their constitutional rights!

 

  • Biggest problem is that the other officers are standing there and not stopping this from happening.

 

  • It’s amazing the other 2 officers knew this was all wrong but went along with it. I used to have the most respect for officers, but these videos show what tyrants they are

 

  • I have had run in with pigs like that. And I have talked to real cops. That was just a show of power abuse of the badge. It didn’t get him anywhere. Glad you stood your ground bro.

 

  • Great job standing up for yourself bro. This little tyrant lives on intimidation. It might have gone badly for you without your camera and witnesses on the phone. What pissed me off more than the threats of violating your rights was the other 2 cops letting him get away with it. Keep that law suit going.

 

  • Once again, ignorant corrupt cops escalating and turning nothing into a crime. Sue them all.

 

  • I like how he’s polite to the other officers. I think treating people with the same respect they give you is very respectable

 

  • Cops have been getting away with too much ever since even the 50’s, 60’s, like getting into my friends car and pushing the gas pedal to the floor because he said he had loud pipes, (the cop failed) and got away with it.
    One of my friends got a ticket for not having his rear view mirror adjusted so the cop could see himself through the rear window while in his car. Cop got away with it.

 

  • Is it any wonder people hate the gestapo police.
    And then they have the nerve to call themselves the area (wherever they are ) as the so and so finest. I lived in a bad neighborhood a long time ago (large city) called the police and they finally came 5 hours later and the cop only walked down the street 80 feet with a large vest and a gun and went back to his car. Scared as hell. But when it comes to a ticket they are brave.

 

  • If a cop refuses to ID, you already know you’re dealing with a terrible person who doesn’t deserve their badge.

 

  • Had this happen to me in Bernalillo, NM. This is how a lot of police are acting now. Not serving and protecting but harassing the elderly and law abiding citizens. Glad I sewed the police department and won.

Ignorant and Arrogant Police Brazenly Violate Law

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Note:

Several police officers take it upon themselves to detain Philip Turner to force him to produce identification, even though they tell him that they know he is a first amendment auditor.  (They disparage his YouTube legal education and tell him “this isn’t working out like you expected”.

When a cop says he’s not gonna argue with you, it’s because he knows he’s violating your rights and that he’s wrong. He’ll just throw you in a cage regardless, and let you have your day in court. Take away their precious qualified immunity, and watch the magic happen.

 

 

Comments

 

  • Sadly, this cop has been doing this to citizens for years, totally ignorant of the law. They, however, messed with the wrong guy.
  • I love it when an arrogant tyrant is SO sure of himself he openly mocks someone who knows the law and his mouth walks himself right off the cliff. His frequent comments about YouTube and his “I know this isn’t working out like you expected” comment is just icing on the cake. I’m having a very hard time not jumping to the original video… so I hope Part 3 is out soon! 😂😉👍
  • Wow this officer’s ignorance of the law is embarrassing and his arrogance is shameful! This video will follow him for the rest of his career.
  • I can’t imagine how many lives this cop has ruined and I hope he is no longer in a position of authority and no longer has the ability to interact with anyone.
  • The “1 bad apple” philosophy is probably the scariest part of this for me. As a sargent the amount of other officers he may have influenced is terrifying. When you multiply that exponentially to who those officers have influenced it seems the cancer of ignorance is going to spread far faster than the education he received here.
  • “Investigatively Detained?” In other words, we have no lawful reason so we’re trying to find one. 🤷
  • One of the things I love about Batman is , he is a bonafide auditor. A real auditor is never afraid of being arrested when he or she knows the law is on his/her side. Stand your ground and get paid later. What baffles me is the prosecutors who actually agree to prosecute cases like these. If a prosecutor is stupid enough to accept a case like this, he or she should be disbarred.
  • I’ve learn so much watching these videos. I’m baffled as to why there are so many audit videos showing Officers who clearly has no knowledge of the law, violating the rights of citizens and yet there has been no changes to Law Enforcement at all. There are some good cops but 95% of them are nothing more than ignorant bullies with a badge and gun.
  • Good grief, the condescending attitude is just DRIPPING off of this cop. He couldn’t be any more arrogant and aloof if he tried.
  • The “pat down” in itself is a violation of the fourth amendment. They had no ras of a crime, no ras of a weapon and no ras that you are dangerous. Therefore no lawful terry stop or terry frisk. Both are four amendment violations and the in pocket search was the third violation.
  • They are so intoxicated with their opportunity to use force, they imagine their interpretation of law is absolute.
  • I’m sure they were thinking they will record with your camera, for you, to show off that they are not kicking the crap out of you, like they normally do.
  • We will violate your rights until we get what we want …….. earning the hate
  • This man is brilliant. I don’t know how he kept a straight face knowing the ramifications of the situation and the way the officer did all of his work for him
  • 4:004:36 The cop’s rant is priceless and unfortunately for him will live forever. The level of disdain and ignorance is astounding, but unfortunately, common. The stupidity on display…..wow.
  • Qualified Immunity. That’s why they do what they do. Sovereign citizens
  • The officer’s arrogant confidence suggests the “Dunning–Kruger effect” (https://youtu.be/VyipktSZUlQ) is in play. Turner’s quiet confidence, on the other hand, demonstrates genuine competence.
  • 4:11 We all know what he meant by that. These cops are criminals/bullies with badges.
  • So this officer is essentially saying he’s been violating citizens rights a lot longer than you’ve been exercising yours. What a damn shame. Hopefully his retirement is right around the corner!
  • They knew who he was.! Was clearly a violation of his rights! It was totally because they knew he is a 1st amendment auditor and are trying to punish him.
  • I love how this ignorant cop keeps saying he’s not going to argue Or debate this, because at the end of the day he knows he’s wrong.
  • It’s amazing how confident he is, I’ve never seen someone so confident that they are completely right but in reality he’s 100% wrong.
  • He keeps telling the other officers to do the stuff he wants to do. Wtf. Do it yourself. You afraid of losing that qualified immunity?
  • suspicion is not a crime and filming in public has been deemed, by the supreme court, a non-suspicious activity and protected under the law and constitution.
  • I think the reason these cops were so bold and seemed to relish helping you record had nothing to do with them understanding ANY of your rights…in my opinion it’s all about them believing they can get away with anything they do!
  • He doesn’t want to argue or debate, because he knows he will lose. I would love to read every cops report on this incident? I wonder how many lies!
  • I am always amazed at how good auditors stay so completely calm. I hope you end up with a civil rights case because when these just go away by having a complaint go into a file things won’t ever change
  • It’s refreshing to see this police officer inform you of who you are and what you’re all about involving YouTube just to get clicks and views can’t wait for part 3
  • Love your break down. You’d think the cops would use this as a training video, but they are too arrogant, and too stupid to learn from their bountiful lies, violations of TX law and violations of Tx penal code.
  • After years of getting glee watching some cop watchers, 1A auditors, and then getting burned out and getting irritated with it all, I can say Battousai stands the test of time. No one being honest can say he’s being problematic, he is straight forward and as Texans would say a “straight shooter”. In fact, if I were to hear he resisted or was combative or inflammatory I would know it’s horse shit. Batman is an S tier auditor/cop watcher.
  • This is the type of cop that they need to use as an example make an example out of him by firing him if he doesn’t know the law
  • He literally admitted that he has been violating rights longer than you have been doing youtube.
  • They think they’re not giving you want you want just because they’re not being physically violent.
  • As a veteran I was fortunate to be able to serve overseas going to Kuwait and patrolling the boarder to Iraq. I’m proud to have served to protect our country and constitution and what it stands for and if it means anything to you, I’m proud of you too. You’re professionalism and bearing exuded towards these bullies is commendable . I want to thank you for your service. Respect…
  • I’m uncomfortable with how he’s feeling you up. Why he keep touching your junk again and again
  • They just know they aren’t accountable for breaking the law and or violating the people’s civil rights. that’s why they recorded this interaction with your own cell, it’s a way of saying we’re above the law and there’s nothing you can do about it. BULLIES WITH A BADGE.
  • What a pack of cowards! Afraid of one unarmed man, that they feel they need to lock his arms behind his back. Pure cowardice.
  • I’m sure they were thinking they will record with your camera, for you, to show off that they are not kicking the crap out of you, like they normally do.
  • Guaranteed these same cops are doing exactly the same today to people who don’t know their rights
  • They’re just not smart enough to figure it out, and knowing there will be no consequences for their actions, there’s no reason to waste their time learning it. Harass, violate, repeat.
  • Once they start, their ego will not allow them to back down. They will keep trying to get you to willingly ID. Please never ID when you know there is no law broken.
  • Unbelievable he‘s holding you hostage they’re not taking you to jail they’re holding you hostage in their car until you ID to them wow the corruption is thick in the officers listening to this bullies orders will soon will regret it
  • This totally validated the Auditing community for doing what they do. There is a very strong need to fix what we see here. Cops either totally not knowing the law or cops totally violating peoples rights thinking it will be with impunity.
  • ID is like crack to a cop. Haha. Good one. I’ve always wondered how an ID helps their investigation 99% of the time.
  • I’ve been watching these videos now for like 4 years I have not seen one cop especially the ones who said they know the law better than you who actually knows the law what is the ignorance where does it come from their schooling their training their pride their what????!!!
  • To think you can identify a guy for filming and that’s suppose to let you know what he’s doing 😆 strip a law abiding citizen of his freedom because they feel like it smh
  • It’d be interesting to wear only a gold thong while auditing and see if they still frisk you for weapons and ID.
  • This tyrant is drunk on power.
This guy likes to talk, but makes his goons do all the violating. Maybe it was a secrete audit. He says all the wrong things on purpose to see if his subordinates would do the right thing and question him. The officer who went in your pockets and the officer who buckled you in did cross those lines by themselves.
0:15, Guys go ahead and frisk him.
1:25, If he wont do it willingly handcuff him.
2:28, If he has an ID we have every right to look at it.
3:59, Go ahead and put him in handcuffs and we can do it (detain him) until we find him on the system.
5:50, Hook him up. (that sounds like an arrested to me)
8:44, Have him sit in the back of the car and lets go ahead an figure out who he is. Handcuffed and buckled up in a police cruiser, a reasonable person would believe they are under arrest not simply detained. But they did put you in the front seat so maybe a little gray area.
  • So voluntarily give up a right or forcefully have it violated… Ah thats how freedom works
  • If they repeatedly bring up the YouTube videos and see what the outcomes are. It shows they are unwilling to educate themselves and need to be removed from the position.
  • As kids we had terms for people who cried about every little thing. We called them piss ant crybabies. The majority of these cops are just trying to protect our community. If you stop messing with them maybe you will have time to invent a robot that wont make mistakes. But until then, having human cops is as good as it gets.
  • I have never been a proponent of defunding the police. I am still not one. However I am for abolishing qualified immunity for any officer that violates the freedom of a law abiding citizen. If this is protecting and serving then we need to let those officers go because who can point out the good officers in this situation? For those who say just comply with unlawful, unconstitutional orders. You are a part of the problem. Law enforcement work for the citizens they are not nor should they ever be considered overlords. When that happens, we no longer have a free society. We then are worse than Hitler or Mao.
  • They need a crime to detain you and for a Terry stop. A Terry stop is a frisk, not a search.
  • What’s really funny is the fact that I’m from Pa. And I know what Tx. 38.02 is! LOL!!!! These cop’s are a absolute joke!!!
    • England here, we’re all up to speed with 38.02 means and we’re on a different continent. 😁🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
  • When you’re wrong, you don’t want to argue. That makes sense.
  • Hey Batt- I love what you do and respect you for it. I am a 25+ year professional and degreed journalist- I don’t say that to diminish non-journalist 1A rights… no journalist has more rights than a private citizen. Conversely, no citizen has less rights than a journalist. My favorite 1A audits are the totally silent ones. A lot of “auditors” say they are going to be silent, but almost none ever remain silent. But a few have, and it was glorious. (In states that are not stop and ID.) I do know, however, that POC have to be more careful in every regard. (Lots of cameras and friends with cameras far away.)
  • I am always amazed at how good auditors stay so completely calm. I hope you end up with a civil rights case because when these just go away by having a complaint go into a file things won’t ever change
  • 6:28 “Texas is not a stop and ID state.” The cop then says “OK, Thanks for telling me the law. Let me tell you whats going to happen. we’re going to detain you until we have properly identified you”. He’s basically said that he’s going to ignore the law and carry on regardless. He definitely thinks he’s a sovereign citizen who can make up his own laws.
  • COP – “The code of criminal procedure gives us that authority”.
  • Supreme Court – No it doesn’t.
  • cop -“this isn’t going to go according to your you tube education…..you are detained so if he has ID we have every right to look at it…..when you are stopped by a police officer you are required to give your name and DOB……..this is an investigative detention……if you want to leave and be free to go just give us your name and DOB……” = we have no idea of the law so we like to bark orders demand ID and go into your pockets to search you for no crime………..this supervisor is totally clueless.. i feel bad for the rookie officers learning from this clown….. we just want to ID you and see if you have warrants….. cops just can’t help their ego…….sadly the cop was too lazy to look up penal code 38.02
  • I’m uncomfortable with how he’s feeling you up. Why he keep touching your junk again and again
  • 7:40 “Why would I cooperate with someone who is treating me like a criminal, even though you already told me I didn’t do anything wrong?” They have NO clue where the disconnect with the public comes from smh
“I don’t know if you’re trying to do something bad”
“I don’t know if you have mental illness”
“I don’t know if you’re breaking the law”
You can hear the disappointment in the cop voice, he probably just learned that he really can’t arrest you 🤣
As egregious as this whole incident was, what bugs me the most is that knowing they are in the wrong and can’t ID Mr Turner, they keep him in handcuffs for one more attempt and then lecture him. At the point they knew they were wrong, those handcuffs should have been off and Mr Turner freed without a second’s delay. Instead, it was another four minutes between the Officer Copsplain approaching the car and Mr Turner being taken from it. If I was on the jury, those 4 minutes would have cost the city a million dollars.
Arrogant, stupid, bullying, cowardly. – Someone tell me again about all the ‘good cops’ there are. Not one of those pigs intervened to say that this was wrong. Not one. Fkng disgusting.
14:30 This copsplaining is hard to stomach, You are so strong dude, I think I would have projectile vomited hearing this crap!
“Cuffs are on by policy”. Isn’t it policy to only put them on law breakers?
>> Sadly no. Use of cuffs falls under “officer safety” you know, the guys with the guns, tasers, mace, bulletproof vests and batons. These guys are so easily scared.
I feel your pain on the cuffs, my wrist were jacked for a couple months after. I would randomly be cutting my food and drop my fork or knife at times. Thanks for standing up for your rights and ours!
The cop-splaining went into overdrive after they figured out that they were way out of line. You are and have always been one of my favorite auditors due to the way you handle your business. All of those screaming and obvious baiting guys have become tiresome. I do enjoy the way you handle cops and your explanations of the circumstances to us. Thanks for all thast you do Phillip!
Did you know that saying “suspicious” three times in the same statement makes it more legitimate? NO! That boss sure seemed to think so. Lol
Did you notice the camera guy was still in those painful handcuffs while the cop has the audacity to not only try to copspain away his illegal activities but he also stands above him, looking down at him like a parent with an unruly child, and lectures AT him for a while. Just another power trip thing. He knows that person wouldn’t stand around and listen to such BS. The cop stepped in it and he was trying to wipe his shoes on the guys t-shirt.
I love how the cops always pull the “you may have a medical condition ” and we may have to have you checked out. Once those words are spoken, you have the cops scared.
“How are you expecting this to play out?” I expect you to know, follow and uphold the law, Officer. If you cannot or will not do so, I expect you to either relieve yourself of duty or be relieved.
This is what happens when you live in a society that requires the person who cuts your hair to have more of an education than the ones who are given a gun and told to uphold law and order and protect and serve the people. I wish a university would do a deep dive study into the personality types who become cops. There are plenty of good cops but we have a abundance of evidence that certain types of people go into law enforcement because they feel it gives them power over people.
That part at the end where the officer says “you can buy a copy of the report”… That’s the exact reason we need to record. They put layers of red tape and can deny FOIA requests for whatever bs reason they come up with. It’s always funny how when people want body Cam footage it takes forever to get released but if the footage clears an officer it’s out immediately.
Did I hear that correct? The settlement was $5500? If so, that is a rounding error for a department that size. They spend twice that annually on fuel for just one patrol vehicle.
