“HES STILL TALKING! HES STILL TALKING!!”Almost like they’ve never heard of the Constitution before…
Respect Mr Wood for standing up for his rights. The fact that he had to seek an appeal shows how some Judges, who have time to research the law, can still be as corrupt as local Law Enforcement.
What is insane is this happened 6 years ago and it’s still not resolved, that is the definition of a broken system if I ever saw one
Let’s hope this sets a precedence about the blatant misuse of “qualified immunity”!!! This is one of the biggest problems with police today! Their blatant disregard for we the people where they break laws and violate our rights with impunity!
5:32 “Sarge, what are we doing, he’s talking the whole way out the door?”. In other words, he’s using his 1st amendment rights as he’s advocating for the constitution, should we arrest him? Has to be the most egregious and asinine shyt I’ve ever heard from another officer.
The fact that the department still defends their actions is troubling to me and indicates as an entire department, they are unqualified to do their jobs. This seems to be a case for the Justice Dept. to step in and take over the department, since the department has chosen to admit that they are either unaware of the constitution or unwilling to support it. They have admitted guilt to the public.
So let me get this straight, they want to arrest him for wearing a shirt and talking while leaving like he was asked? When did wearing a shirt become against the law? How do they not understand the damn Constitution? The pride and ego of these officers is just mind blowing…What’s so funny is their actions just proved why he wore the shirt that he did so they actually proved his point…
3 courts heard all arguments and only 1 took into consideration all facts and circumstances revolving around this incident. Fair and equal, or justly corrupt? You take what you will from having 2 different courts attempt to summarize punishment enforced on those who willingly conduct themselves as tyrants, only to have 1 man never back down and prove just how deep their tarnished code runs.
That is so pathetic and terrifying at the same time, that the sheriffs office think they did nothing wrong by violating a citizens God given protected rights.
It’s sad that these egregious cases have to move so high up in the courts to be appropriately adjudicated. This was an absolute slam dunk violation yet the DA’s and lower court judges conspire to deny the blatant, obvious criminality of the LEO’s in the hopes that the average citizen will give up and the acts will go unpunished and unpaid.
That man is a patriot standing up to an overreaching government.
If the cops stuck to law enforcement they would be OK, but they enforce feelings and what they think are community standards and that’s where they go wrong. They don’t know the difference….escalate every situation is all they’re capable of over and over and over !
No matter which auditor’s video I watch, such video taken in any number of states from coast to coast, the general ignorance of the average police officer when it comes to Constitutional rights is appalling. Such ignorance has to be a major contributing factor leading to the disconnect between law-abiding citizens and police personnel across the country. It is, in some cases, downright scary.
5 1/2 years and no resolution?! Our Justice system has a HUGE problem.
I’m a retired cop. I can tell you that years ago my training officer told me to develop some seriously thick skin!! I was taught to uphold the laws and not let my feelings (or anyone else’s) get the better of me. In turn, I trained my rookies in the same manner I was trained. I can honestly tell you I never made an arrest because my feelings or anyone else’s may have been bruised. I never let my ego get the better of me. Did I make mistakes; of course but I learned from them but at my expense and not at the expense of a citizen. I wish him all the luck with his legal action against the officers and the department. Take them for all they’re worth and continue to stand up cor your rights!
Ah,so glad to hear this!!If they would learn the laws and uphold those laws everything would be ok.But no!END QUALIFIED IMMUNITY!!I don’t understand how the lower courts constantly get it wrong!
Notice how long it’s taken this one to progress through the courts? Happened in 2016 and it’s now finally making its way to court to be tried!
