Police: Foot in the Door

Resident owner denies Arlington Police Officers entry into his home without a search warrant, Officers still went in.

 

You’re taught in the police academy that any entrance pass the threshold of the door is trespassing without a warrant so yes that is warrantless entry

 

This man is a damn saint for the level of patience exercised in this situation!
The only mistake he did was to open his door. Never open your door.
The reason they keep their foot in the door like that is to bait you into trying to close it so they can charge you with assault on an officer.
The way the cop just stands there while he pleads for him to leave knowing his rights, is truly disturbing
Cop puts foot in door to block resident from closing. I’m of the opinion that the resident should be allowed to close the door using however much force is necessary to achieve closing the door. The idea that cops will charge you with assault for closing a door on them is asinine. Other option is to close the door however much you can, place your foot behind the door. Then inform the cop that the same assault charge he would charge you with if you close the door applies to him if he forces the door open wider. When they stand in the hall but have their foot in the doorway, they know they have no right to enter. We should be allowed to slam the damn door even if it breaks the cops foot!
it’s crazy that our natural right to be left alone can be ignored simply because someone makes a phone call.
I’m shaking and it wasn’t even me there. This dude deserves Saint good for how he handled himself.
They are terrorizing that child, and if anyone is being irrational, it’s those cops.
They broke the threshold, that is trespassing.
He trespassed the cops and they come in anyways… Sounds like a nice lawsuit to me, plus they have to know trespass laws, so their legal immunity is blown.

>> I wonder if you noticed that he was arrested. So, before any lawsuit, he has to deal with his own charges.

>>   @vad R  charges that’ll be thrown out once the video reaches the authorities.

 @Van Iyke  The cops will undoubtedly claim exigent circumstances. One of them even pointed out that he saw some broken glass. Check out the story of James Wood in Cotati CA, couple of years ago, who also thought that he can resist officers’ warrantless entry during welfare check. The whole family was tazed and charged with obstructing, including the alleged victim; Wood was tried in court, and got off only because the jury deadlocked – half of the jury agreed that he deserved prison term. In this case it’s ten times easier because of the glass, and of the kids involved.
was wrong, he was not arrested – they verified that there was noone else in the home, and left. Here’s more complete video:
 @vad R  there was no visible harm on the child when said child presented himself, there were no sounds of the child crying, the child was not seen to be crying, the child did not ask police for help and…. Oh yeah…. almost forgot about the PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE ABSENT PROBABLE CAUSE of which there was NONE. You better hope your neighbors don’t hear you drop a glass and it breaks one day or you may have an army of pigs show up at your door demanding entry. Better just COMPLY CITIZEN, right?
4 ways for a cop to enter a residence:
1) Consent
2) Warrant
3) Hot pursuit
4) Exigent Circumstances
An anonymous call stating a “disturbance” does not meet the threshold for exigent circumstances.
They have no warrant, they clearly do not have consent and they are obviously not in hot pursuit.
Funny how it went from a ‘domestic disturbance’ involving “a wife” to a ‘domestic disturbance’ involving the Son”
I can’t believe bro didn’t cuss a single time 👏🏼 big props
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, open the door for the police unless they have a warrant. Make them break down the door. Make them defend it in court.
I feel so sorry to this man and his child for having sick people in their door so scary.
This was an illegal search. The reason they didn’t just drag him out the door and detain him while they searched for the “distressed party” is because they knew there was no distressed party. They were trying to get him to agree to an open-ended search where anything found would be admissable in court. This whole charade was to try to trick him into giving permission to search. They show up claiming exigent circumstances but then waited at least 15 minutes, plenty long enough for someone to bleed to death or die from asphyxiation, drowning, OD, heart attack, stroke or any number of other causes. This didn’t disturb the officers because they knew that the exigent circumstances was merely a pretext. Exigent circumstances are exceptions for when seconds matter. By waiting 15 minutes they proved that there was no exigency. So at this point they clearly are not performing any legitimate law enforcement activity. They were very clearly asked to leave but did not do so. We are left with the inescapable conclusion that they are not acting in any official or legal capacity at all! (Though they are acting under color of law.) They had no legitimate reason to be there and they have been asked to leave and failed to do so, one of the actual examples of trespass in the Texas Penal Code! Because they are acting under color of law, this becomes Criminal Trespass. When later they do force their way in, having, by their own conduct, clearly discarded all legal rationale for their presence, TPC 9.31 is triggered, which justifies use of lethal force. These officers got lucky. If that boy had understood how wrong what was happening was, he might have feared for his and his father’s lives. He was big enough to handle an AR… Plenty of kids his size have killed intruders.
Once you heard his son is fine your wellness check is done. There is no longer any need to be there.
Never, ever open the door to cops unless you have a locked screen door or storm door between you in case you need to shut your door quickly.
This reminds us once again ” DO NOT OPEN YOUR DOOR” Better to talk through it closed and locked. Isn’t it sad to have to protect ourselves from the very people who are paid to “protect and serve “.
He was MORE than patient. Showed his son 3 times. This was very stressful just to watch…….I can’t imagine being him. His son was so scared that he started crying. When they stormed the door at the end, I started crying…….& I don’t cry easily. Police brutality.
The encounter should have ended when the child appeared. These cops are tyrants & broke the law & need to be fired & sued in civil court. The department needs to be held accountable for the actions of these officers also. I hope this man gets the justice he deserves
“We got a call…” they think that this statement gives them carte blanche to violate rights…
Someone give me more information on what happened to this father, and his child. I believe this call was the cause of a bad woman. I believe there is more to what was really going on behind that domestic call. It was clear though that he was a good man, and a protecting father.
Gwacamolle Lully: It’s always funny when people come up with this response, tax payer’s money. As soon as we the tax payers get fed up of footing the bill for police brutality and incompetence we will demand change. Until then, we will continue to pay for our lack of action. Police love using the word “right”. Officer: “We have a right to enter and check.” No sir, you are mistaken. You actually have a “duty” to check. He however, has the “right” to be secure in the home. As soon as he got his son, who’s statements will be seen as truthful and unbiased in court, to confirm the number of occupants and his well being. That should have been it. But the officers egos took over again.
Buy yourself a nice house, and a new car. Put your son through college. You deserve it, Bro!
 @Gwacamolle Lully  I am usually taking police side, but this was extreme. The guy deserves every penny he can get from them and from you, as a tax payer. I am european, so I’m good. You guys need to open your eyes widely to what happens in US and start to make some changes.
Cop is like “I don’t understand why he won’t just let me violate his rights”.
According to this, cops can just have anyone call in a residence and that will give them the right to search that residence. That is scary.
anytime you don’t let them trample all over your rights, their response is: “You’re not being rational.”
He must have told them over a 100 plus times not to enter. Unreal
I use to be a deputy for 8yrs and i can tell you i wasn’t trained like this. I was trained to follow the law. No warrant, no entry!!! Most of the cops downfalls is the department gets into this mindset and nothing gets done about it at the top!
“You can have an officer monitor my door while you go get a signed warrant”.. Why does this citizen know how to do their jobs better than them 🤔??
Security doors allow you to open your door and still have a barrier between you and whoever’s at your door.
They will interrogate the son and tell him that dad will go to prison if he doesn’t agree that dad is abusing him.
This is the reason you don’t have answer the door when you see a cop at it! They crossed the threshold this should be considered a violation of the 4th amendment. Point blank period
This was extremely disturbing to watch. This is exactly where the breakdowns of community start. I have decided never to call the police, unless specifically asked to, for fear of individuals ending up harrassed, bombarded, wounded, and at worst, DEAD. I cannot live with that on my conscious. Even if there was a Domestic Situation, some just need to get to the other side of that situation. Sadly, in either situation, calling the police or not, someone could end up dead!
Never open your door to cops unless you called them or its an emergency. When you do the first thing the do is put their foot in so you can’t close the door and if you try they arrest you for assault.
A “welfare check” does not suspend his civil rights!
No amount of money from the enevitable settled out of court case, can be enough to compensate for the trauma that poor child must have experienced when these tyrants burst into the family home!! This has boiled my piss 😤
The victim did as well as I could imagine. I’d like to see Audit the Audit show this and give us some clues how to handle the foot in the door problem with cops. If you try to close the door they arrest you for assault and yet they are trespassing. In the time they spent harassing the victim the cops could have gotten a warrant, but they don’t want to go that route because they don’t have probable cause to convince a judge to sign a warrant. Can the officers not be charged with trespassing? Are they immune from that? Time to clarify this foot in the door process.
You did a good job of stopping the cops from talking. When they start talking, you end up getting charges that they make up..!
In Texas, the law allows a few exceptions to the warrant requirement. One of these exceptions is Exigent Circumstances, sometimes referred to as “the emergency doctrine.” If they reasonably suspect that someone may be in need of medical assistance, or is otherwise in danger of harm…that qualifies. And courts have upheld that a phone call report may be satisfactory to establish reasonable suspicion. Therefor it is very likely that their Welfare Check, based on a caller reporting some domestic violence, would be enough for a court to rule that they were allowed to enter his home without a warrant. This is true even if it turns out later that the reporting caller was wrong. And at least one of the officers did try to explain Exigent Circumstances briefly before being drowned out by the man. I friggin hate it when I hear about yet another instance of, “We investigated ourselves and – shocker – find that we did nothing wrong.” But in this particular case, I’m afraid that would rightly be the outcome.
I gotta stop watching these types of videos. It makes me upset that “leo’s” believe that they can violate the God given and constitutional rights of citizens at will. When the lawsuits inevitably happen, the payouts come from the pockets of other innocent citizens rather than from those of the perpetrators. Sickening system.
This happened to me with a crazy salesman. I told him to move his foot before I shut the door, cuz if he didnt, it was gona hurt. He refused. I slammed the door. I can still hear him yelping. I think I broke it. Would do the same for unwanted cops
1) theres either a “real” threat or circumstance that makes it really necessary to go in without a warrant in that case they shouldnt talk to him for 10 minutes 2) they have no real reason, then they should all get sued
We homeschooled our six children. This kind of thing happens to homeschool families all the time. We belonged to the Homeschool Legal Defense Association when we are children were school age. We had their lawyers on speed dial to protect us against this kind of crap. It still happened to some people especially in CA. Some families won large civil rights settlements. Does anyone know if this guy came out of it okay? Where did this happen?

This is just an ego confrontation and the cops are experts at it. I guess it’s taught at the academy.
I’m from Canada. And if I took this to any, and I mean ANY lawyer, even though I could not afford them? They would take this case for free (pro bono), and they would sue the police department, the city and each individual officer. With the condition, that if we won, I would then pay for their services. This is appalling to me!! All I can say is I see one HUGE LAWSUIT coming against everyone concerned. To the father? KUDOS for holding your cool. Best Regards and Stay Safe Everyone from Ontario, Canada, Jenn
My parents demanded a warrant, the police said it’s in the car, and refused to show it, police decided to shove their way into the house, then a month later, came back and arrested my 81 year old father and 60 year old mother for assaulting an officer/obstruction of justice 3 counts because there were 3 cops.
When we get a call for service………. Obviously the cops feel all of your rights are suspended because their phone rings. I wonder how that will work out in court. The cops just keep saying listen listen listen listen when the facts are we don’t have to listen to them and we don’t have to speak to them .
The citizens, one day will use the “I feared for my life” excuse. This would have been a good time for it.
This reminds me of when I was 6-7 years old. My Father was a single parent. He was an alcoholic and heroin addict, but he never put his hands on me. Cops used to force their way in and beat the living $h.. out of my dad. They even went as far as to throw him down 5 flights of stairs. When it came to court time, these TYRANTS would lie in their report. Saying, “he fell!” I would tell court the truth, but of course they wouldn’t listen. Poor lil boy. Good old boys in blue still wondering why us people of color don’t trust them??? (I really want to go off in my comments, because this video is a trigger for me)!!!
We need to start having special doors made that automatically close at the push of a button to close the threshold of a door and sever anything that is breaking that threshold. Cops might start learning when half their foot is where it should never have been to start with.
That’s scary shit! The cop immediately tried to say he saw broken glass and stop hurting your child. Scary when law enforcement puts themselves above the law.
You should have made a citizens arrest, request that the second officer arrest the trespasser, and demand a supervisor. You provided several trespasser notices. At that point both lose qualified immunity.
This would not be happening if there was no Qualified Immunity and the police had to carry their own liability insurance!
So if there’s a call for a domestic disturbance, all the abuser has to do is say they can’t come in without a warrant? In my country, there wouldn’t have been more than 10 seconds in this situation before the cops came in. This man is responsible for his sons tears.
They are claiming extengent circumstance, but those concerns should have been relieved without entrance into the residence by 10:04 time stamp. There was clearly no threat to life or limb at that point. These cops forced their way in for no other reason than to demonstrate their dominance. They willfully escalated a routine disturbance call with criminal intent to cause harm.
Doesn’t “exigent circumstance” mean someone inside the home is in immediate danger? If they had that, they would be in the home already, IMO. Courts have traditionally let cops do almost anything, as it relates to 4th amendment violations. Cops have something like 10 ways to enter a residence without a warrant, and the courts rarely hammer them for the violations, so this guy may be able to pry a civil judgement out of the city, maybe.
This is when a door chain comes in handy. Set it up so it only opens 1/2 inch. Or better yet, get a doorbell cam with audio and put it on your door. I watched a guy argue with cops/CPS through his doorbell cam while he was actually in the background cutting his neighbour’s lawn. Hilarious.
The cops do need to investigate calls regarding a disturbance and make sure everybody is okay and I I wasn’t sure if the man being questioned was being reasonable until later in the video he told the officer that he would cooperate and keep the door open if the officer would step out of the doorway. Then I became appalled when they actually forced their way in. They should never have been in the doorway to begin with and if the man wouldn’t cooperate by at least answering questions that should be enough for reasonable suspicion to get a warrant to make sure that the man didn’t commit child or spousal abuse. From what I could tell they had no probable cause to force their way in and they should all probably be fired if that is the case.

In most states, the only way police can enter a home without a warrant, is when they have PC that a crime is “in progress”, not “may have been committed”. Don’t know the details here, but what’s obvious is these cops are blocking the door, been told to leave, are trespassing, and trying to force their way in someone’s home to search every room, drawer, toy box etc, just hoping to find anything to use against this man. This homeowner was great and I hope this worked out big for him.
I knew shit was bout to pop off when Officer Crazy Eyes strolled up. Poor baby, I hope the man and his son are doing ok now…
Sadly, this man will lose any lawsuit based on “Exigent Circumstances” (defined below) as mentioned by the Sgt. when he arrived. This is a law that police use to screw your 4th amendment. Call your congressman and demand the law be abolished.
I am not a lawyer but I believe there were some civil liberties violations here. They said they were there on a call for a domestic disturbance with a female and just because he won’t let them in to ascertain if there is one there does not give them the legal right to barge in unless they hear her cry for help. I would cite very serious fourth amendment violation concerns here.
This is main reason why I invested in a Ring device! I can still communicate with people, and don’t have to open the door to anyone Law Enforcement included.
If the police actually had the right to make entry like they claim, they would not have wasted all that time talking. They know they had no legal power there, and they know it. Also, their story flipped between “welfare check” to “disturbance call.”
That same thing happened here in Harnett co and ended with Livingston being shot killed because he closed the door on the deputy’s foot !
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. UNLESS “SOMEONE” MAKES A CALL!
Easy win 42USC1983 case. Any lawyer would take it. An officer placing their foot past the threshold on hearsay is trespassing. Investigating on hearsay does not allow them to barge in to somebody’s home. Prosecutor should also charge them under 18USC241 and 18USC242.
This is why a good relationship with the community is important. People dont even respect you or trust you enough for a simple welfare check. You have no one to blame but your own organization!
I found asking them to repeat their lies again and again and again works quite well.
If he was at the cops house like this with his foot in the door, that’s not trespassing. Good to know
Heads up all. The reason why cops place their foot in between the door is for (2) reasons:
Reason #1 – In the event you close it they can claim you assaulted them in the event they have no probable cause or basis for being at your residence.
Reason #2 – Keeping the door open allows them to look inside and smell and observe the activity within your home to establish probable cause.
when will we say enough is enough , a neighbor can call and say what ever they want and cause this to a family enough already
This clown should be sued for saying there is exigent circumstances OR they would have entered already. It only has force of law if there is immediate danger to someone, to stop destruction of evidence or to chase an escaping offender and thats it. Despicable and unlawful and I hope he sues these fools and thugs with badged. What has happened in the last 9 months?
most cases, police officers probably cannot enter a home without permission during a welfare check. However, if they feel that they have reason to believe that someone is in danger, and/or that a crime is being committed in the home, then they can typically enter the home without permission. Pretty sure none of this has happened they need a warrant what the hell is wrong with these cops?
They were just biding time for authorization to enter from a supervisor. They were unsure if they had probable cause enough to enter, so they figured they’d just trespass “a little bit” and to keep the door from closing until they could get authorization that they had enough probable cause. Once they got the OK, they just blew in. That authorization “qualified” their “immunity.”

 

 

 

 

What Rights Do You Have To Stop Cops From Entering Your House – Warrants, Consent, Exigency

What Rights Do You Have To Stop Cops From Entering Your House – Warrants, Consent, Exigency

When can Cops enter your home? What cops use to enter your home. I discuss how Gov or Law Enforcement can gain entry to your home and under what circumstances they can enter your home without your consent or approval.

I have a video about why you should not talk to cops that I encourage all people to watch. Nothing good comes from talking or cooperating with the Gov. Once Gov is involved it can only down hill from there. Once Gov gets an inch of control they will always want more and you will end up playing catch up and wishing Gov was never invovled. Here is the link to that video:
http://www.thinklikeahorse.org/All_Ab…

I have said many times when I was a cop – It is better if you don’t make a statement, don’t talk to me and remain silent. There is an attitude that if you remain silent or refuse to talk, then you must be guilty or have something to hide. In the current adversarial relationship between citizens and the Government, protecting yourself should be your primary concern.

Nothing you say can help you and can only be used against you. Police work for the Government and politicians, they have careers to protect, policy to follow, they make mistakes, they misremember things, some things are accidentally left out of reports, their memory is not perfect and many other factors can come into play and you may become collateral damage during an investigation. The old saying, Truth is what the cop puts in the police report, is true to many.

Any lawyer will tell you DO NOT talk to the cops or give any statements. Anything you say can be misunderstood, taken wrong, repeated wrong, remembered wrong, important parts can be forgotten, confused or intentionally withheld by the Government, especially if it hurts their case.

This video is a Lawyer that explains this very well. Invest 20 minutes and watch this video where this experienced Lawyer gives specific reasons on why you should not talk to the Police.

Comments

As a law abiding citizen I appreciate the information but the behavior you described of cops today is very concerning. What happened to protect and serve. You see more and more police departments looking more and more like military operatives and that is scary even as a law abiding citizen.

 

 

If this is true–that cops can create exigent circumstances on a whim and thus can break in without consequences–the system needs to CHANGE. One of the important critical costs of individual liberty that an individual having a right to be secure in his person is that COPS DO NOT HAVE THE AUTOMATIC RIGHT TO WIN unless they can prove it to a judge who would provide a warrant. A person’s home is his sanctuary. Period. If cops want to snag someone who’s in his house and don’t have a warrant, starve him out. Don’t break in. If someone’s life is in danger, cops don’t have–that is, should not have–the limitless power to resolve the situation, not at the cost of one’s right to be secure. To argue otherwise is to give absolute power to a police state, which I’m beginning to realize we may have already become, rather than a nation governed by individual rights. But the greater crime is in the courts/”justice” system that have successfully absolved such tyrannical violations of the 4th amendment and given what was said in this video the backing of precedent. Checks and balances clearly end at the courts, a tragedy that is ultimately causing the implosion of our nation. Granted, the stories this guy shares are examples of where having a police state worked out nicely.

 

So you can do nothing wrong but be a victim of impatient cops attending a bogus call, not even get charged, and still receive a record? “Land of the free” The more I learn about our legal system the more I despise it, it’s despicable and constantly stacked against the citizens. A cop will give you a record just because he didn’t want to have to justify his unneeded use of force on paper. What the hell…

 

most everything you’ve said is why law enforcement has very low respect. I had a DA tell me Law Enforcement is not an honorable job anymore.

 

“There’s a difference between kicking a door and preventing you from closing the door” that right there tells you everything you need to know about cops.

 

by the way I am law abiding citizen and a veteran … I believe in the constitution to the fullest! officers infringe on that daily! a good friend of mine that I severed with  just became a officer in texas … his class skipped over learning bout the constitution … umm… that’s an issue for me … how many agencies do that !? isn’t the fucking constitution the basis for our laws ,rights, way of life ?
Officer, what you’re saying is that police will, after violently harming an innocent person, will arrest them, book them, and give them a criminal record so they don’t look bad? That’s what I would call a disgusting and evil action.  That, and the victim of those perpetrators would also have a good claim for a 1983 suit.
Wrong house and home owner gets killed or shot and injured? In my opinion the fact that you got the wrong house means you’re wrong and completely liable for anything and everything. Period.
An attorney named Dale Carson wrote a book called “Arrestproof Yourself”. In that book he stresses that when ever you deal with government and law enforcement to ‘Shut the hell up”. To never EVER start talking to them. That they are NOT your friends. That book should be required reading for every citizen of this country. The information contained would help to put the kabash on a lot of governmental and law enforcement abuse. Most police I know are pretty good people just doing a dirty job. But I have met a few who I am amazed ever passed a psych test.
I appreciate your information, except the part where you laugh about busting in the wrong house and you told the lady to have the city pay for the damage. Disgusting! How would you feel if someone busted into your home and just said, “oops, I made a mistake. Sorry“? Yeah, that’s what I thought. This is why a lot of people hate the cops. The “I can do anything I want because I’m a cop and my union and the city will protect me” Is absolutely disgusting.
I must have been 18 yrs old and in my 1st apartment. One morning police knock on my door and I opened it, next the officer asked to come in, I complied. At that point I felt violated because behind that 1st officer was another 6 cops. They each went through all my rooms, drawers, closets, etc… I realized I made a mistake, I was young but I learned that just because I had nothing to hide doesn’t mean I didn’t have rights.
if this does not convince you that you live in a police state I don’t know what will
This man swore an oath to uphold the constitution? Let that sink in a while.
long story short…sounds like they can make up any excuse and enter your house without your consent or warrant
You should have explained how cops trick people into letting them in because the cops don’t specify what kind of warrant, a search warrant and an arrest warrant are two entirely different things. And how an arrest warrant doesn’t give any cop entry into a home unless the cop just saw the person enter the home, or the cop sees the person in the home. Cops will yell, ‘we have a warrant’, but they don’t say it’s an arrest warrant, trying to scare people into opening their door, when they don’t have to open the door. Cops rely on people being ignorant of the law, due process, procedure, etc. If cops say they have a search warrant, they have to show it to you upon request, and it has to have a penned signature by a judge, and it needs to be very specific about where and why. If it has 1 error, then it should be considered null and void.
  • I heard somebody say help so I kicked the door in.
  • I saw somebody moving the house so I kicked the door in. I
  • thought I smelt smoke so I kicked your door in.
  • It was cold outside so I kicked your door in.
Sounds like a warrant is pretty useless to me when all you have to do is make up some bull shit excuse to get in. Never ever talk to the cops they are not your friend…
>> they can lie and they ain’t gonna believe you.
80% of police work is causing people grief over b.s., to collect fines. Policing for profit. 20% is positive and necessary .
Also your “goofy” presentation style and apparently cavalier attitude toward the violation of citizen rights seems to be in line with the way law enforcement treats citizens these days: with disrespect
I love this guy’s stories! Also, thanks for keeping it real with us citizen’s who ate struggling to not offend authorities to the point of incarceration due to wounded ego vs. Expecting privacy of self and property as guaranteed under the 4th amendment.
It’s absolutely a violation of our civil rights to force entry while you wait for a warrant. A homeowner would be perfectly justified to defend themselves against such use of unlawful force. A warrant is the ONLY justification for you to force entry. An officer is sworn to defend our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution. If an officer violates that oath by failing to follow proper due process, he is no longer properly acting as the enforcement arm of the law. At any point that the officer violates his duty to defend and uphold our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution, he ceases to be Constitutionally justified in his actions, and is subject to the same counteracting use of force that any common criminal would be. We have to protect the absolute fail-safe right of We the People to use defensive force against ANY intruder who does not have a proper warrant. Otherwise, you end up with unscrupulous officers using loopholes such as the ones described in the video to enter unlawfully.
Great video and great info. The statements about the officers making decisions to cover their own butts instead of following the law and protecting the rights of the citizens are very sad but true. Also the statements about the cops having a chip on their their shoulder for anyone you does not follow all their “orders” whether those orders are lawfully given or not. People with that sort of ego should not be given a badge and gun. I think we are all going to have to start wearing body cameras to have evidence when these behaviors happen. Unfortunately, it is too easy for an officer to lie about what happened to make it sound like he was right. The DA and the judge will tend to believe him, not the citizen. So the citizen gets screwed.
Well since everyone is sharing, I guess I should too… I lived in Hamilton Ohio with my wife and first child. I was playing on my Xbox 360 and had been for about 2 and a half hrs and suddenly heard someone talking at my window,” are you sure? This guy is sitting here playing a video game.” I instantly tensed up not knowing what was about to happen. I then heard a knock at the door and got up to go answer it. I asked through the door who it was and they said HPD can you open the door so we can speak with you for a moment. So being only 19 at the time I was unaware of my rights regarding entry to my home, I opened the door to have a word and was instantly bulled back by a police officer and pushed on to my ottoman and told not to stand up while being held at gunpoint. 6 other police officers rushed in behind him in swat garb with assault rifles and started searching the house. I asked what was going on and the on who was standing over me with his pistol told me they received a call that a woman was being held hostage by a man with an assault rifles, then he asked me if I had any firearms and if there was anyone else in the house. I told him about my dad’s shotgun in the next room in a locked case and that my wife and daughter were upstairs sleeping. Two officers then went upstairs to wake up my wife and daughter to “make sure they were ok” then promptly left. If that isn’t messed up and illegal idk what is. Note: this was probably around 2-3 am
We’ve investigated ourselves and found no wrong doing.
What about the classic “You open the door and the cop sticks their foot in the door so you can’t close it, tactic.” Why did you leave that part out?
“I smell marijuana.” How does someone overcome this since cops are allowed to lie?
>> Cops are not allowed lie about facts that develop their PC.
>>  @S Campbell  But, they do.
At the beginning you list only 3 ways a cop can enter someone’s house. You left out the one most often used.
COERCION
coercion noun plural noun: coercions

>> @Ricky Mellottsr  “either let us in now or we are going to come back with a warrant. if you make us get a warrant you are going to make us mad. when we return with that warrant we will search and destroy your property.” and they will destroy everything.

I appreciate straight-talkers, regardless of what they’re saying or their message. Thank you for your prospective, insight, and this conveyance. It was informative and clear.
So the key is too keep them off the property and keep the door closed. Also by federal law cops cuffing and not arresting you is a battery. Don’t believe me, ask a lawyer. He is also just admitted HE IS A DIRTY COP by saying he books people that he knows haven’t committed a crime and seeing other do so because he and them don’t want to have to justify their use of force. He is exactly what’s wrong with the cops in the US.
Thanks for your information and it’s pretty accurate as far as I can tell. You at least seem like a stand up guy and sincere on your points that are well taken. Nowadays the disconnect comes in when cops over-step their bounds then double down with petty retaliation tactics.THEN the citizens seem to have NO recourse when it’s plain that the cops were wrong and it’s even plain that the “revenge” tactic was done for obvious reasons. Plain and simple fact is ordinary citizens do not like being treated and talked to like they are ALREADY in prison. (Very unprofessional) All due respect to the job, but not to some of these bullies and thugs that we ALL know are out there. Thanks in advance for giving me this platform to air my personal opinion.
In other words, The Fourth Amendment protects nothing.
How is anyone supposed to know that the person banging on your door is an actual cop?
6:59When your working on an exigency situation to get in someones house, Its up to the cop to create that exigency” I have a problem with a lot of this. It is not illegal to not answer the door, even if its a cop. Its not illegal to no not acknowledge the cops even if they see you inside not answering them. I get it, someone called…. Talk to the caller, if they dont say anything that gives exigency to the situation in and of itself then aww well. Do not pass go. Stay the fuck outta my house. I’m in here getting paranoid like a motherfu**er and your killin my buzz from these brownies my aunt made me for Christmas
I found this video to be very disturbing. Something about this video seems to trivializing immorality. First of all, a cop should be intelligent enough and careful enough to NOT go to the WRONG house, especially knowing what the consequences could be. A person could be running in their house for any reason. Perhaps a person is not suitably dressed and runs to put something decent on. Normally people (myself included) don’t expect someone to kick the door of the house so they might hang around the house looking any kind of way. As far as exigency, I need clarification. Is exigency always started for the benefit of the resident or can it be used for other reasons? A neighbor’s call might indicate exigency or not mean anything, especially when people call cops on their neighbors out of spite. The purpose of a welfare check is to benefit the person who’s welfare is at risk. The person who the call was made for or didn’t instantly answer the door should not be abused because “he’s a jerk that pissed off one of our people…” What does that have to do with the welfare of the victim? At this point, the issue is ego and not ‘serving and protecting’. This video was informative but left me feeling very sad and with a little less respect for the police, because as I said it trivialized certain things that don’t need to happen.

The Fourth Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I believe in warrants.Yet when cops use warrants and they find nothing.They should be held to accountability.This does not happen now. This is where law on warrants should be changed. Such as there should be folks there with cops , that are trust worthy to watch every move of the cops. Cops are not trust worthy. This is a added accountability for cops to try to keep them honest. If cops are caught by these mediators planting stuff. Then the cops are automatically given twenty years. with out parole. When warrants are issued for wrong address.Then these cops who bust down the door and terrorize a family.Then these thugs should be charged with terroristic tactics. These terrorist should be charged with a felony with at least a minimum of 25 years to life in prison. Cops by nature are dishonest and natural born liars. The system protects these terrorist. Warrant system and blue privelege is what also protects these criminals. Cops are not human they are animals.

 

You’re laughing about entering the wrong residence. You’re laughing about walking away as the lady is frantic because you broke her window. You’re laughing as you say you tell her the city will pay for it. Then, later in your discussion, you joke about entering someone’s residence after chasing the “large black man”, drawing your weapon and scaring the daylights out of innocent people. I’m sure it DEFINITELY wasn’t funny then. Why do you think it’s funny later? What’s funny about that?
This is the kind of logic that’s what’s wrong with this country. You LEO’s somehow believe you’re justified in your actions – despite you ADMITTING you messed up or, later, aiming your weapon at innocent people. WTF?! There’s never been another time in America where citizens have a strong dislike and distrust for police than there is now. Do you really believe talking about your past transgressions in this manner is going to help? And just because someone is a “jerk” to LEO’s doesn’t excuse illegal action. It’s this mindset that somehow, because you have a badge and you’ve been disrespected, you have the “right” to infringe on the rights of others. I do applaud you for educating the public regarding your train of thought and a glimpse into the mind of a LEO. It IS helpful. I just think you could’ve handled it better.
police don’t get into trouble anyways no matter what they do, they always get a slap on the hand .
>> not true, cops lose their job very easy for misconduct and lying, but they have be caught red handed and with video that is getting easier.
>>  even with clear video of them committing crimes like murder and other major violation of the law, some of them only get a light sentence, that amounts to nothing, and some time no jail time just fired ..

>> It may seem that way but being a cop is not easy and there is just so many laws, policies, court cases, use of force rules it is an enormous amount of information to process in a spit second that can mean you either die or live..  the courts and Gov knows if they do not give a lot of protection for the guys doing the job, then it will harder to find people willing do it.  Unless the Gov crashes the economy so the only jobs are in Gov that way no can say no or go against them or they will be without jobs..  Believe me NO cop goes to work thinking yee haw I can do whatever I want and I don’t have any worries…  it is the opposite.

Black Female Federal Officer in uniform, racially profiled by white police officer in Alabama

A 15-year federal law enforcement black female officer got pulled over by a white Alabama cop on July 31, 2020.

 

I pray that this woman is protected from all dangers physically, financially and spiritually.
My heart hurts for Ms Jackson! I’m a white retired County Constable from Northern Kentucky. I can say that I don’t know what she goes through as a black female in this country, but I can say I have never treated anyone any different than anyone else! Hell my mother always told me that we all bleed red (some of us blue) and breathe the same air. I always taught my kids the same! I am embarrassed for those 2 deputies! God bless you Ms. Jackson and keep fighting the good fight! I know I am!!
Been there done that, 25 years in law enforcement. My Lord, how many experiences like that I had, even in my own jurisdiction.
In uniform her blue life didn’t matter because her black life was never recognized…
I’m a white man who has been in federal and local law enforcement for the same time as you and I could not agree with you more! You are 100% right and officers like them don’t deserve to wear a uniform. They are a danger to the public because they are hyped up with fear and power. We have to be respectful and treat others like humans. Pleas continue to teach new officers how to conduct themselves. Maybe we can make things better…
I’m glad this situation ended with you being safe
I’m a white male that has been DPSST certified for 15 years, my heart goes out to you. You are completely correct, and I will never understand the scope of discrimination that you have endured based on your color and your gender. Having said that, we all know that the culture of policing needs reform. And I feel bad saying reform because it’s not strong enough. There are so many good people that go into LE and loose themselves in the boys club culture of LE. I have changed my career in the last few months, I live in Portland, OR and I can no longer support the culture that LE was built on. I don’t have to tell you how laws have been designed to keep black and brown people seen as less than. I myself had to battle with the influence of the LE culture, it is real and you are completely correct. I’m so sorry that this happens to you, I am literally crying watching you speak on this because I have seen it so much and I know what you’re saying is true. Some of my closest friends are cops, and they are good people, but the culture of policing was built on discrimination and classism. I’d say stay strong but I can tell by this vid that you don’t need to hear that. So I’ll say I’m sorry, and I hope to live to see true equality.

Pulled Over For Driving Too Safely

 

“Most Texans don’t go 60 they go 80”. So he’s getting punished for not going over the speed limit!?!? This is a joke

 

“Isn’t 60 safer than 70” “Well actually you’re suppose to go the posted speed” “No, that’s the maximum” Holy shit that man came with the factual statements lol.

 

Cops: “Why does everyone hate cops?” Also Cops: “You are obeying the law and I don’t like it. I’m going fish for a reason to arrest you.”
Imagine being a cop and thinking “Wow, this guy is driving awfully safe… I better make sure he’s not drunk!”
9:35 Cop: “Most Texans go 80 in a 70 zone.” Man: “Well, why aren’t you stopping them instead?”


What brings you to this part of Texas? Like it’s illegal to drive from Austin to Plano or something. And now that he pulled him over for no reason he’s trying to bust him for the rental car lol. It’s like if I can’t get you for being too safe I’ll just find a reason. Boy this cop really wants that promotion for most tickets given out. He’s as bad as a used car salesman.
He realized the guy was okay when he talked to him. His ego just wouldn’t let it go.
I got stopped for “driving too safe” once. As soon as the officer came over, he asked why I was driving like that. I asked him what he meant. He said I was driving “suspiciously” safe. I facepalmed in front of him and asked him if driving safely was a crime. He didnt say yes, he started beating around the bush by saying “im the one asking questions here”. I stayed silent the rest of the time. I didnt commit any crime and I didnt answer any more questions. He eventually got bored after a few minutes and left
“I’m just pulling you over to make sure you are okay.” “You’re okay?” “Cool, here is your warning. Fantastic dialogue right there. From what I’ve seen on this channel, open dialogue with a Police Officer isn’t friendly or polite, it’s basically phishing. Who can blame people for only complying with the bare legal requirements when engaged with a Police Officer? Any further and you are a successful mark. When did Police Officers become street magicians? “Look here, see how you are a lawful citizen? Bam, now you’re a criminal, hands up.” Sad and appalling.

 

What erodes our confidence in officers is knowing that the good ones know what the bad ones do and are doing, but won’t blow the whistle because of the brotherhood.

 

this is the equivalent of pulling somebody over for coming to a full complete stop at a stop sign. nobody stops at a stop sign, it was suspicious behavior.
it’s so weird how cops spend most of their time giving our bs tickets and harassing people when they could be focusing on things that actually matter like, actual criminal things.
I thought he was doing a reasonable stop. Then he said “I’m giving you a warning, please give me your papers”. And like that, a reasonable stop turns into a power trip. You made your point, let the man get on with his life.

 

“Why were you driving 60 in a 75?” “Because I saw you behind me and I’m terrified of stupid, unreasonable cops.”
“Your behavior is consistent with someone who’s intoxicated” He saw he wasn’t intoxicated. Thats where the stop should’ve ended.
“You’re getting off with a warning”, then proceeds to ask tons of inconsequential questions. Typical cop behavior, trying to implicate a person for a crime.

 

This is literally the meme of, “Do you know why I pulled you over?” “But officer, I was going the speed limit!” “Exactly. Go 10 miles over the speed limit or go back to whatever state you’re from.”
One of the things that my driving instructor told me, that has stuck with me decades later is this: “The speed limit is the MAXIMUM speed you can travel, under absolutely PERFECT driving conditions”. Meaning, if it’s raining, traffic is heavily congested or any other number of factors, you should probably be going UNDER the max speed.
>> The really interesting thing though is how these speeds are typically calculated here in the US. Generally what happens is they send someone (like an intern) out to a new road, who then records the speeds of the people driving on it. Then after collecting enough data they say the 85th percentile is the speed limit and call it a day. Which you know really gives me confidence that these speed limits are masterfully planned
In 1994, I learned firsthand how some police departments definitely have a “quota”. I had been severely injured in a car accident the year before and had been unable to work. The tags on my truck expired but I didn’t have the money to renew them. I was literally on my way to my first job interview in more than 10 months when I was pulled over for expired plates on the 29th of May. I explained the situation, but the cop was unsympathetic. He wrote me up for four tickets, three of which were centered around the expired tags. The fourth was for not wearing a seatbelt. I went to court and when the judge read off the tickets, one after another, everyone in the courtroom was snickering. When she was done she simply asked if I would like to speak to a deputy D.A. I said yes. He was a very nice young man who gave me a chance to explain the circumstances, and I was able to show him that I’d since renewed my tags after getting the job (despite being late to the interview). He said that three tickets for one minor offense was unreasonable and dismissed them. Then he asked, “Tell me honestly, were you wearing your seatbelt?” I said, “No, I wasn’t. “ He thanked me for my honesty and charged me $10 for that. Yeah, quotas absolutely do exist and they shouldn’t.
“Where ya headed?” “That way” “Where ya coming from?” “The other way.”

 

It is not unlawful for the police to interrogate you during a stop or even a regular conversation. If the driver would have known at the time ; he could have stopped the interrogation cold. At anytime you can withdraw your implied consent to be interrogated without an attorney present. He was under no obligation to provide the officer details not pertaining to the traffic stop. He should have invoked the 5th.

 

When police ask you to sit in their patrol car passenger seat they want to better assess if they can smell alcohol and/or get you to say something incriminating, FYI.
>> Had an officer do this to me and then change his tune real quick when he saw I’m in the Army. Let me go faster than someone holding a hot potato.

>> When they arrest or ticket someone on active duty, the Army for example will investigate the matter and be in contact with the police department who issued the citation.

 

Why do cops always ask where you’re headed or where you’re going, as if it’s any of their business or you have to justify or explain your movements to them? I love everything I’ve learned from this channel, and I’ll definitely keep in mind the myriad things I’ve learned in any future dealings I may have with law enforcement.
When you hear “I just wanted to make sure you are okay” you know they are gonna harass you for no reason what so ever
I remember hearing a prosecutor say in court that he would prosecute someone driving 46 mph in a 45 mph speed zone. This makes us distrust the legal system if we are stopped for going too slow.
The problem with “your right to silence” is the following. “So, what’s your name ?” “I’m invoking my right to silence.” Officer steps back for a second and thinks to himself, “I am going to get this fuck arrested for something before the day is done, I promise you.
Cop: “You were driving a bit slow. Tell me everything about yourself, then drop your pants”
.. Most people, esp. green card holders, do not understand this. Police are intimidating; and a police officer can ruin your life. People will often just comply to avoid any resistance, and can you blame them? I can’t.
Cop: “your behavior is consistent of someone who is intoxicated…” Driver: “your behavior is consistent with someone who needs more training…”
Driving too slowly impedes traffic and creates a safety hazard. So stop a vehicle in that lane for several minutes. Roadside traffic stops are generally more unsafe than the behavior that caused the stop. Laws need to be changed to require officers to direct drivers to a safe location.
4:38 “What brings you to this part of Texas besides that your car broke down?” Does the officer have the right to ask this question? This whole stop is very confusing.
They have the right to ask whatever questions they like. They’re just hoping their victims are ignorant enough to answer.
Sure he can ask…its a dumb question from any perspective even if the guy was holding up banks on the way and mowing people down GTA style it would still be one of the dumbest and most pointless questions to ask and to repeat the question…..as though it had any real value….beyond stupid.
They hope by extending the encounter it may bring other issues to light that they can then investigate for a possible crime.
 @John Romero  Yes, they can ask, but should they? Questions like this are great source of distrust between the police and the public. Questioning reasons why someone is somewhere sounds a lot like you’re not welcome there and creates atmosphere / feeling where people feel they have no right to the freedom of movement. Every time police officer is conducting their business they should also concider PR, how their behavior may affect people’s feelings and their sense of security, freedoms and privacy and ultimately the whole community.
That was a Gestapo Nazi cop style question.
 @Banjong Philaiwan  the more I think about it, the more it sounds like a visa question. So I’d be inclined to answer along the lines of “My permanent residence somewhere in Country X brings me to the State of Y” because the “business” / “pleasure” answers aren’t applicable unless you’re visiting country on a visa which is granted for the purpose of either business or pleasure. That’s pretty much my take on it although I’m not sure most cops really understand what it is they’re asking or what the question is for.
Guy is driving a rental car and doesn’t want to damage it so drives carefully. What’s the problem with that, officer?
I guess this officer doesn’t have elderly drivers in his area, they sometimes drive 60 in a 80 mph zone.
Most good drivers take it easy when driving cars they’re not used to. This cop is a nut case.
9:36 Cop: Most Texans don’t drive safely under the maximum speed limit, rather they go 80, not 60, on a 70 mph road, so I’m giving you a written warning for driving safely, instead of illegally fast. This sums up why the traffic stop was extremely unreasonable and the warning an abuse of power.
I’ve been pulled over for, and I quote, driving so proper for someone in a sporty car it was worrying. He followed me for 15 minutes before pulling me over.
That California license plate is perfect prey for quotas, since out of staters rarely contest tickets if they have to take time off and travel for court appearances. Easy revenue.
“Do you know why I stopped you?” “Because fighting real crime is hard.”
“Damned if you do and damned if you don’t!” Americans deserve better than this type of harassment!
The officer actually encouraged the safe driver that he should be going 80 (10 miles over the speed limit), instead of 60 (10 miles under the max which is legal). I was waiting to see if he asked, ‘You’re suggesting I speed, officer?’
“What brings you this way?” The dude literally just told you. Is it illegal to have an accent in Texas yet? This cop literally told him he should be breaking the law rather than driving under the limit.
Speed limit has no determination on getting pulled over. Most States have laws concerning driving too slowly or too fast and even doing the speed limit they can get you for driving too slow/fast for conditions. What’s all that mean? No matter what there is always an excuse an officer can rely on to pull you over.
I hear you on this,When it all boils down they get to go off their feelings and that’s scary,you see deputy douchebag real reason for pulling him over he thought he had a drunker..
Here in San Diego, quite few years ago now, a cop hit a pedestrian, and he was speeding a little. It was explained to us serfs that speed limit laws are actually quite flexible, and the officer was doing nothing wrong.
The cop is like: “Can you say something illegal? I’m low on my quota.”
Man, I got so angry when he kept asking why he was there. The guy was such a sweetheart patiently repeating his answers over and over
I was told by multiple NY state trooper pals that driving at the speed limit is very suspicious behavior. They want to see you going 5 to 9 mph over the limit. 10 mph over is too much. Those are strict guidelines that differ greatly from what we were all taught.
This exact thing happened to me, I was doing 95 in a 100 Kph zone and the officer said that people typically go 115 or more. I actually asked, “So why did you pull me over rather than someone actually breaking the law?” He then informed me that he could write me a $200 ish ticket, I pointed out that his name would be on the ticket and that would make filing a complaint really easy. He straight up walked away without indicating that the stop was done and just hoped back im his car and drove off. It is also worth noting that as I pointed out the complaint I gestured to my dashcam which wasn’t even set up properly at the time but just the thought that he had been recorded saying he pulled over a person following the laws rather than the ones that were actually breaking them was enough for him to leave without incident. He definitely suspected me of being intoxicated as his questioning reflected that but I very clearly wasn’t and there is no point in prolonging the traffic stop just to try and pretend that he had another reason.
>> Him: “I need to pick up my car because it broke down” Cop: “So why are you heading this way” Him: “To pick up my car….”
>> Also Cop: But why are you here Him: ???? <Puzzled> to pick up my car from the shop COP: But why are you in my county …..
>> Why are you here? Why were you vacationing? Why were you born?
This is oddly close to where I live and I love it. Finally displaying how the cops act out here.
“does it go on the record” -no in that case, what is the point? if there is no record of the warning, what would happen if another cop stops him for doing the exact same thing again?
I love the way you breakdown these stops. I think these worse be an excellent training tool in police academies. Show the video without the voice over, send them home with some work and analysis then breakdown the stop. This as a training tactic would save lives, money and rebuild trust. Thank you.
“You’re just gonna get a warning” for not disrupting traffic and driving safely. Understandable have a nice day.
🙄 I hate when they say, “I’m trying to make sure you’re ok.” Where he’s going isn’t any of his MF’in business. 🙄
Why was he asked to go into the cop car to receive the warning? And I am confused why this wasn’t addressed in the video?
A police car tailing you with no lights is an excellent reason to slow down.
When the hell does a cop ever ask you to sit in the passenger seat of his car?! I would be sus as hell and probably refuse.
After watching a lot of these videos, I have learned you can not win with cops. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
It’s funny how it’s called a speed LIMIT yet we can’t go under it
The deputy may not have been “rude” but he was definitely disrespectful.
He was being a polite jerk. The man did obey and listen to the cop so that helped. Had he known his rights and laws and challenged the cop who knows. He should file a complaint. That warning shouldn’t be on his record.
I agree. It almost like passive aggressiveness, whereby the words are nice but the intent isn’t. You can be politely deprived of your rights and liberty. A bit like a smiling executioner!
Now I know why I’m alive. I have always treated police like they are crazy by remaining calm, not challenging them, and allowing them to overreach their authority when dealing with me, the dozen times in my life I’ve dealt with them.
He said “I just have to document my stop” Then he tells the man “No, this doesnt go on the record.” Since when was documenting something for the record, not putting it on record? He lied to a man who broke no laws, gave a warning for no reason other than to protect his failed pull over attempt, and looked for other problems in a case where he should have never even made a traffic stop.
Damn. Stopping the guy for no reason, interrogating him, even when he responds and explained why he is in that part of town, he keeps fishing. Even asking for the rental agreement. And they wonder why people hate police?
I have seen cops ride the rear bumper of a car driving the speed limit forcing them to drive faster. Then they give them a speeding ticket. Small towns in the mid west are notorious for this kind of “law enforcement.” They watch for plates from another state and pounce on them because they know the driver won’t come back to fight the bogus charge.
Although we have the right to remain silent, all I’ve ever seen on this channel when it comes to citizens remaining silent just caused more problems. I think he was in the right for cooperating with the officer.
That was a prime example of an officer going on desperate fishing expedition . . . and wanting to exert his authority.
The frequent braking was what caused the stop. I see this a lot around here and it’s because people drive with two feet. So you’ll see brake lights even during acceleration.
This reminds me of the time I was pulled over for driving in the far left lane on the highway. Mind you, the other two lanes were being paved, so it was the only lane left. Rookie cops…
Last video I watched on here was two drunk cops getting pulled over. Neither getting charged for being drunk with a firearm and the driver being allowed to go home after being taken to the station….meanwhile this guy gets pulled over and questioned for driving safely….there is something fundamentally wrong with the policing system.
A warning is like getting an incorrect answer on a quiz before an exam. There’s a reason this happened; maybe you misread a question, lacked domain knowledge, or maybe you ran out of testing time, et cetera. But it gives you something specific that you and your teach can correct, so you get it right in the future. With this warning for his “driving behavior,” there is no specific item for this man to focus on in order to subsequently avoid another warning or citation. (Perhaps he’s advocating doing 80?).
Audit the Audit gets an F, for failing to give this dummy cop the grade he deserves.
>> His grade is appropriate because cops do far worse things. See if this cop got a F what would a worse interaction be? It’s sad but honest.
 @Ted Bell  I agree the cop deserves a F and I like freedom but refer to my previous comment. The man had a out of state license plate. The cop was hoping the man was intoxicated to search the vehicle. Any large amount of cash would be seized under civil asset forfeiture.
 @tonyetzu  He says what the cop did was questionably legal, which would be up to a court to decide. Based on past casee and current laws ata doesnt find it to be outright illegal. Just because you feel like the cop should get an F doesn’t me he generally should. Again everything was questionable and shady, but he didnt throw things like “it smells like weed” or just start searching the vehicle without consent. That’s why he got the grade.
 @MrPopo69zkai  No need to give the cop credit just for what he didn’t do, you are too eager to give the cop credit just for not doing corrupt things, like searching the vehicle without consent, or shooting the man in the face, etc. You have low standards for Police work. I’m aware of what ATA thought of the interaction, hence my original post. My grade stands- F. Thanks for your input.
 @Kurt Wetzel  you don’t need to be able to go lower than an f. If an officer breaks the law in any way they fail. There are degrees of success but failure is failure.
 @MrPopo69zkai  he never should have stopped the guy for obeying the law (he wasn’t swerving or showing any other signs of impairment), he displays obvious signs of racism (“you’re not from around here boy”, questioning about his background, the prolonged questioning about where he’s going), and he repeatedly lies to the man to create fake justification and prolong the stop. Prolonging the stop is illegal as Ata states in many videos.
>>  @Jaime Stardust  after getting a full description he asks “what brings you this way” and “what brings you to this part of texas”, “most Texans don’t go 60 they go 80”, he does everything except say “we don’t like your kind around here”
During my 40 years of operating a motor vehicle across 15 states, I regularly drive under the speed limit for safety reasons but have NEVER been pulled over for it.
I’ve actually been pulled over twice in this exact manner, but here in Northern Ontario, Canada. The police officer on both times suspected me of being intoxicated because I was driving slowly (~10km below the posted limit). The first time, it had been raining all afternoon in the fall, and temperatures dropped below freezing and I was driving cautiously as there was ice on the road, and I did not yet have winter tires on. The second time, it was snowing, and we were in town while hauling a very large trailer, and again just trying to be careful.
I always thought being a cop would be an exciting job but the more of these I watch it must be deathly boring
Why is the cop asking so many freaking questions? None of that is his business. This is crazy.
>> It’s none of his business why the driver is in the area or where he took his family on vacation. This is America.
>> This is standard procedure The mission in asking questions is to find a bigger crime or to later attempt to discredit them through inconsistencies in their story in a potential court case

>> And if you don’t answer it’s suspicious. No winning

>> He’s trying to find a reason to search him or the car to eventually get a ticket out of him
The cop basically asked for his whole life story Too many unnecessary questions stick to the traffic stop

Amazing ID Refusal – Extreme ego check

This cop is an huge embarrassment to all law enforcement officers …he yells and screams at the citizen, but when he gets on the radio, or his own supervisor approaches, he completely changes his demeanor .

 

If I was sitting on a police review board I would recommend this officer for a psych test and retraining. I see 2 major issues here. 1) His main job was to back up his partner. Hard to do that when your not backing up your partner. 2) He took a supervisor away from her job. He knew exactly what the law was and tried intimidation to get his way all he ended up doing was failing to do his job.
What’s crazy is cops like this get promotions instead of being fired like they should be
It’s worrying to have anyone walking the street who is unstable, but even more worrying when the unstable person is wearing a police uniform and carrying a gun. The miserable looking sergeant took no control of the situation whatsoever and allowed the unstable cop to keep ranting over her and she even condoned his worrying behaviour by saying that’s what he’s like. An appalling example of policing that gets a zero out of ten.
Funny how he changed his story. Both of these cops are liars.
OK, this cop is certifiably crazy! He has ranted for over a minute straight and says he is not the one creating a scene? Wow, denial ain’t just a River in Egypt.
The cop was so afraid of this guy that he turned his back on him, hilarious
This is a perfect example of what’s wrong with law enforcement today, officers forget who they work for.
Remember it is legal for a cop to lie to you. You can not trust anything they say so don’t you say anything to them.
It’s funny how he talks so normal to his sergeant but he was so loud and aggressive and raspy to the auditor
IF I were this officers Chief, I truly would tell this cop to calm down for his own good.
He comes across as ineffective and hostile.
“Did I ask you for ID?” The level of cowardess once his boss was there is amazing… She says “No, he explained to me pretty well”… What did he explain? Surely not told the truth. I’d pull up the bodycam footage and send it to her… is that what he explained to you pretty well? I guess not.
Maybe that cop met the first citizen who ain’t afraid of his loud and deep voice and attitude at all. He clearly changed his manner during the interaction. That filming guy was so calm and did a great job!
Between cowardly cops and covid I’m really tired of the word safety. It’s just like crying wolf too many times.
And that’s exactly why we need to film The Police because we know exactly what they are capable of doing so for our safety and our fellow civilians safety we need to police you Mr officer
Most people crack under that type of pressure, that’s why even after knowing the law most officers continue to ask for ID.
Camera guy handled that very well. Even made the cop laugh cause he realized how ridiculous his little rant was
Amazing how they ask “what, you have something to hide?” when their aggressive verbage and demands are because they have something to hide!
I love the way they CHOOSE to come up to harass photographers but it’s always the photographers fault that the cop made that decision!! UNBELIEVEABLE!
Yes they can ask for ID, but being told a dozen or so times” no”, is hardly vague. Asked and answered 12+ times. That’s attempted harassment and intimidation,grind you down til you (may) give in.
What a punk. There is no reason for this contact except to attempt to intimidate this photographer. He can ask all day and no one is obligated to give up their rights. These cops know the law and choose to ignore it because they can violate people’s rights with impunity.
I’m a roofer, I’ve fallen from 2 story houses for almost any reason as simple as looking down. My jobs way more dangerous then any cop. They mostly die from pulling people over on the freeway to rob them. Can’t feel bad for a crook!
So by the officer’s logic the photographer is creating a disturbance if he films them without identifying himself. And not creating a disturbance if he does identify. This cop has lost his shit, I really hope he watches this video and sees how stupid he sounds! Photographer your policy is to identify, officer yeah and your policy is, photographer I don’t have a policy, I’m dying over here. This cop is killing me, gunphones oh my God, we need more interaction with this officer.
Shoot.. classic roid-rage! Scary that there are folks like him walking around out there with badges and guns. Sad to see the lady cop put her head in the sand and cover for his obnoxious behavior. No good will come from protecting a guy like him. Next time he will cause bodily hard or perhaps kill someone and then what will she say… “no I don’t see a problem – he explained it to me and makes sense”? This guy is the type to get butt-hurt easily and I can see him planting drugs on people down the line or giving the next guy he comes upon a beating because that guy isn’t holding a camera phone… bummed to see this happen
No one needs to imagine how many law abiding citizen’s this out of control paranoid cop has f’d with over the years and how many he’s falsely arrested for HIS ego and butthurt. That dude has zero business being police, he’s disgrace. And tell the next grandma that shows up who backs up the paranoid losers that she is dismissed and can go have her prune juice. You good cops out there and yes there are some, you don’t have to wonder why so much of the public despises you now. There are hundreds if not thousands of videos like this and far worse of batshit cops trying to intimidate, threaten, falsely arrest, and brutalize law abiding citizens. Your fellow cops have earned the disdain and in many cases hatred.
“I think we are all on the same page” She was deliberately saying “you know we violate rights and intimidate the public, and we know we violate rights and intimidate the public”
Gotta love how these cops dance all around what they really think, and that is they have a badge and they can do whatever they want to you because your nothing.
When a cop says filming is stopping them from doing their job that means they’re unfit/incompetent for the job and they’re suffering from a.d.d. They need to turn in the badge and quit.
This cop is a flagrant intimidator. What you prefer, he will violate. He tries to install a policy on your side, and then tells you he has “a right” to ask you for ID. This is true, but you have a right to decline. Now, back to the Constitution and your oath – what was that about rights? Officer safety is one form of blame shift. But they also use YOUR safety to direct you into what they want. They authorize themselves to have authority over you and “safety” is their way in, but they work each side to qualify your rights. Nothing this cam man is doing gives the cop anything to work with. This cop isn’t just bad. He’s outta date. Sounds like he took his test when the qualifications to be a cop were relaxed or set lower. Actually, he sounds like an a$sh*le. How’d you like having that voice in your ear, being his wife. Ugh…!
Sergeant: “No… he’s just like that.” Me: “Well then maybe he shouldn’t be interacting with the public… find him a nice desk somewhere so he doesn’t make your department look bad.”
This guy HAS to be a former marine drill sgt. Just look at his stance, demeanor, hair and graveley voice. He is NOT used to being told no. Great job by the auditor standing his ground!
I live in Milwaukee and I had my rights violated so many, many times with the Milwaukee police department and surrounding counties we need more auditors HYPOCRISY AT IT’S BEST
For someone concerned about his safety he sure is quick to turn his face away and look away when he talks on the radio.
He’s one of those guys who scored too low on the ASVAB to be allowed in any branch of the military.
I worked with a guy with a voice like that and he was just as aggressive and loud. But as soon as the boss was around, so quiet and calm. Pissed me off so much I quit. Asshole wins again….
Lol, this cop should have just asked one question then left. I’m sure his boss was real happy to be called out to that urgent matter 😂.
It absolutely drives me nuts when law enforcement officers abuse and violate people. I watch to be educated. What these auditors are doing is priceless.
Old video. But, when ever a cop wonders why you won’t provide ID, ask for theirs right back. “Are you trying to hide something?”
I love how he says he’s worried about the drivers safety and his partner but stands in front of you the entire time. Next time ask him why He’s claiming he’s worried for their safety, since the supreme Court said they have no duty to protect civilians. Also the next time one of them says in this day and time and all the things that are happening – ask what things exactly is he talking about because I would be willing to bet he couldn’t name even one. Ask why he’s so worried about his safety when his job doesn’t even rank the top 10 most dangerous jobs you can have. They continually show that the things they say are nothing but propaganda with no basis in reality.
What a big box of rocks that cop is. He’s the one that’s escalating this entire thing. He should be doing his job in shutting his mouth. This shows just how intelligent and professional that he is 😡
12:30 – So because the rare concern comes up, EVERYBODY is a suspect, everybody is potentially a criminal. Right? So this cop admitted they see each person as a threat – “you know how it is out there.” So, what? There is one in 40,000 who would harm a cop, and that increases with population. Now we find justification for how THE PEOPLE are treated, and rights are violated under an assumption that you are already something you aren’t yet. Same thing with this cop. You are exercising your rights, where you should be, and then he conveys what your lawful actions ARE into what he needs to make them, by context. Sorry, dumb cop. You can’t reassign an ‘action’ (toward intent) because laws can’t be installed to contravene the Constitution and our rights. See how “they” corrupt the view, the perspective? It’s less obvious these days but “they” still do it. “They” just don’t insist it the same way. After all, “what ate you gonna do about it?”

Is This What You Want To Do | Cops Out Of Control

 

Yet another ticking time bomb just waiting to hurt someone. Hopefully he is removed before he does.

 

The cop that’s basically a psycho is used to walking up to people and scaring them. He’s not used to citizens knowing their rights let alone standing up to him.

 

It’s frightening just how much that cop has to restrain himself from being violent. I feel so bad for his family.
Risk to the department = 100% correct, that officer is a liability
“Don’t walk up behind me!” What a coward. Like someone is going to film themselves assaulting a cop.
“He’s going to be one of those type” = he’s a citizen that knows his rights and knows the law better than I do.
I cannot comprehend what these deputies think they are accomplishing other than making the public hate them.
This is hypocritical on multiple levels. Some of the officers refuse to identify, but want the auditor’s ID. The crazy cop says he doesn’t answer questions, but proceeds to question the auditor. The crazy cop gets in the auditor’s face, but the auditor is then told to give the cops some space.
There’s no de-escalation when verbal judo is taught as their policy. Above the law. No code of conduct This is why we all must film our public servants If they don’t want to act like public servants They need to be fired
Cops: “Do you see a gun in my hands? Dont mention anything about my gun”
Also cops- Cop: “Do you have any guns in the car?” Citizen: “Yeah, its in the trunk” Cop: “Step out of the car please. Officer Safety”
This dude goes 0 to 1000! Is he crazy? Senile? Whatever the case, he doesn’t need a badge.
They’re absolutely correct, that one officer is a danger to the entire department. He should be put on desk duty till he learns the laws and some anger management techniques. F— bully.
Its not that a Cop is an out of control Thug that’s really the point. It’s how many other “Cops” either helped him or stood around and watched that shows how broken this system is.
It doesn’t take much to trigger abusive people. Those with low emotional control will cling to words like “baiter” “agitator”, etc.
So six cops for a guy filming…… & people wonder why the crime rate is so bad everywhere. 🙄
Weird how the plate carrying vest becomes a security blanket for the police. The cop who was clutching his vest was seething with anger for a minimal challenge to his authority. Absolutely terrifying dude.
Dang, Seeing that cop go a little crazy like that scares the sh*t out of me..And the rest of these cops follow suit cuz he is above them…These Cops Need To Learn How to Deal with Cameras & People in/on Public Property…..
The entire department needs to be fired and new leadership needs to come in. The one cop hand to be held back, imagine what he’s like when the camera isn’t on.
If the Chief of police is disturbed by how these officers act then there’s hope. If he doesn’t then nothing will change. The people of that city deserve better. These tyrants should be fired or at least reprimanded
Louisiana police are scary. They get away with so much. This guy has guts!!
Always in fear of their lives. Give us space while he walks up trying to intimidate. Law enforcement out of control.
Something that ‘We the People University’ didn’t show was that after all of that, the Sheriff’s Department LOCKED the front door to their PUBLIC Lobby. When will these PUBLIC SERVANTS (Government Employee’s) understand that they Work for the PUBLIC, not themselves or their ‘Feelings’!!!
I love how no matter what police department or state it is, they always say rules and policy states blah blah blah, the problem with that is rules and policy is NOT law, and rules and policy does NOT apply to the citizens. They only apply to the officers and other government officials only.
2 questions, who do I need to call to make a complaint on this officers conduct? And can I make a complaint even if i wasnt involved. Because I watch audits all day and that officers behavior was absolutely top 10 most deplorable public interaction.
wow, the arrogance and ego is dripping off these cops, they are a danger to the public with their superiority complexes, they should be fired because of their attitude.
You can’t polish a terd into a diamond, you can’t retrain a bully psycho cop to be a good cop, it’s not in them.
The cop said “Give us space” without a hint of irony. facepalm
The most consistent behavior I see in just about every video with a cop in it is the need for them to give orders, no matter how irrelevant. They just can’t help it.
The wrong attitude and temperament to be an officer,very poor and unprofessional. Then he has the cheek to advise you to calm down, unreal. God help us with policing of this quality. It’s a disgrace.
If that guy was ready to snap of camera can you imagine the evil things he does when no one is watching that whole crew needs to be written up

Make a list here…
“What’s the point?”:
Education
Transparency
Accountability
Authority
Boundaries
Jurisdiction
Use of Rights
Knowledge check
Reinforce trust
Risk Management

 

Man love your channel. It teaches you a lot. Gives you an understanding of what the law is. Making people aware. Thanks and keep up the great work.
Auditor respectfully asks for more personal space and gets denied. Then the police demand more personal space.
5:20 The sheer anger in their faces and the contempt for these public law-abiding citizens is horrific!
This escapee from the slow school gets so exasperated when a citizen doesn’t follow his impotent orders. Why do police forces hire people with obvious mental and interpersonal skills? It appears to me that every community in the U.S. said let’s hire juiced up weight lifters (who btw in my experience cannot fight for crap) and those with borderline personality disorders to be our police force.
Can you just imagine what these cops would do if you didn’t have a camera
These public servants characters has to be terminated from law enforcement. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were on drugs for their demeanors.
the police really do think they lord over us. That’s a real problem. thanks for standing up to them.
The “DONT TALK ABOUT MY GUN” roid rage guy looks just like a bull ready to charge! That cop is going to seriously hurt someone someday soon!😱
THIS SHIT IS ABUSING HIS WIFE AND HIS FAMILY. I grew up with an abuse Father and this man is not stable. If anyone knows his wife and family make sure they are ok. He is geared to trigger any citizen that has been abused. Either way he is going to hurt someone or get himself hurt. He has no business working with the public.
5:56 “YOU SOUND AGGRESSIVE, SIR!!” What a piece of work this cop is. He cannot control his tempter or mood and consistently overreacts to ordinary conversation. Why does he have a job that deals with the public?

>> The irony of that moment wasn’t lost on me

“Here’s the deal…” Copsplaining 101, a required course at police academies.
Even the officer that steps in between the two realizes that this guy is out of control and he will go Hands-On if he didn’t have a camera he would have already been beat up
I thought the gentleman did an outstanding job dealing with corrupt police, he was very clean precise and sounded very intelligent. He also knew when to play the cards of his particular operation, and YouTube channel. Very good exposure, I do hope that there are law enforcement around the world that watch these videos and understand that they are not better than the civilians that they serve, the people are not peasants, and they are not kings, they serve the public.
Amazing how theres so many cops in the station doing nothing and have time to stand around aimlessly for people w cameras. People freak out when you want to lower the budget of police this is why. Or say 3k dollars license plate scanners that shouldnt exist if the 4th amendment was actually taken seriously
What’s really astounding is the violation of civil liberties over and over and over and over and over and over again, but these goons never face consequences. Intimidation and harassment is a direct violation of 4th amendment rights at the least, and these goons need to be charged federally
If a citizen has a gun and it is in his holster I bet the cop brings up the guns and gets all scared and throws them to the ground but it was never in the citizen’s hand.
Are mental evaluations even considered when hiring officers? The unhinged officer in this video is going to end up hurting someone, if he hasn’t already…The officers standing around and just watching the complete mental and emotional breakdown of a fellow officer are just as appalling.
That cop needs to be fired and obviously with that many cops for a camera means they can let officers go and downsize since they have nothing else to do but harass law abiding citizens
That one cop is scary he doesn’t need to be retrained he needs to be fired! It is sad to me than any other cop would stand up for him stand by him or try and justify how he’s acting.
Cop acted like he just questioned his manhood!
“You see a gun pulled out?” Something tells me that if you’re openly carrying in this encounter and you say exactly the same thing, their attitudes are very different.
Yelling officer invading personal space of calm auditor: “YOU SOUND AGGRESSIVE SIR, CALM DOWN!” I can’t imagine how violent that officer is when there’s no witnesses nor cameras.
“YOU’RE ACTING AGGRESSIVE!”…says the guy yelling…Riiiight.
“You sound aggressive” as he screams and walks towards him smh.
Why do cops always feel the need to put their hands on their vests like they’re badasses? Their body language speaks volumes. Total disdain and contempt for citizens. 😡😡😡
Great example that the Government hires thugs to do thug work. They would have not acted this way unless they were trained to do so. That most aggressive pig would have shoved you off of public property because he was told to treat citizens this way. None of their actions had anything to do with law enforcement. They saw citizens with cameras and you are the enemy. Why are we the enemy? Who instructed these pigs that we are the enemy. Everyone of them treated you with contempt. Like how dare you believe you can walk and take pictures as if you are a free people. It was all about putting fear into you way to stand up to the corruption.
This is most certainly not the first time these tyrants have misbehaved, and tried to intimidate the public!
Berkholtz must be going through something to go off like that. I honestly pray he gets some help. Cops are human, to me he is at his breaking point, and it’s not related to this encounter. I’d normally would condem him, but I’m trying to be better.
>>  @Steven Larratt  no I’m not, but someone who recognizes people with extreme psychological issues related to stress.
Imagine if the cop came up to a citizen open carrying and said he needed to take the weapon while chatting for “officer safety” and the citizen went off the same way, mocking officer safety and saying “do you see a gun in my hand?”
I had a patient who was a serial killer. He was caught when he killed a cop. (He became my patient only after he killed the cop). He turned out to be a sociopath. Because I was not his victim type, we became comfortable around each other during interviews and psychological testing. On the other hand, I would not be comfortable around Officer Berkholz. This man is a danger because his short temper will set him off. His behavior indicates he has violent traits. I would guess that he’s exhausted at the end of each day just from trying to keep himself from losing control and getting violent. People who carry weapons and have authority over people should not be this “wound up.” My serial killer patient was more in control of himself than this cop. That cop needs to be in a position where he has no contact with the public. He really shouldn’t even be allowed to own or carry a gun. If he hasn’t already, he’s going to hurt someone when given the chance. He’s on the lookout for that opportunity/excuse.
He even said, “one of those type.” Right then he should’ve known that what he was doing was perfectly legal. And the officer should’ve just walked away.
Officer : That’s all we are asking for is give us space. But before that officer “right here” gets within 1foot of the camera man. And was highly aggressive. He seems like a liability to the department. And a threat to society
When even their own cop buddy co-worker holds them back from advancing on The People, you gotta ask yourself what he’s already done.
They know people will see this and they still behave this way. That’s how confident they are there will be no repercussions
How come the guy filming can “Demand name and badge number” of police without identifying himself? I am not a cop but If the guy filming got in front of my property with that attitude, and was a motor mouth like he has, it would be understandable to want to move him along or put a sock in it for him. The cops maybe wrong but this guy filming is so annoying, he’d make most people flare up. Not just cops.
Why do SOME cops get angry so fast? There is a BIG percentage of cops that DO NOT know the law that they are supposed to uphold. Happens so often WOW
Imagine what that one cop does on the road when interacting with people who don’t know their rights.
I always wonder if law enforcement attracts this type of person, or if normal people become this type of person.
>> It’s both. Worked around cops for almost a decade. Many come into the farce with this type of personality disorder but others grow into it over time as they go year after year of what is a mostly boring job. They can’t handle the monotony and stress that long. After years of operating within a filter where they are way over exposed to idiots and criminals they stop being able to see people as anything but. These types were not cut put for the work, but most of their skills are only secondary type in usefulness to other jobs, so they don’t often have much to offer for a position with similar pay and benefits. So they are stuck. They hate their life and they take it out on everyone else.

Who sounds aggressive. The grey beard old Cop, that’s who. A group of the reason for the people to make their law enforcements to pay and carry their each own liability insurance
Imagine what that one would do on a dark back street when he wasn’t being filmed. Now imagine how the others would support him.
Mark my words ,, this department will be in the news for hurting someone or a bad violation of their rights … they are nasty and out of control .
See this is what I have an issue with. As soon as an officer is called out for him doing wrong, trying to escalate a situation, gets told off his higher ranked officer and asked to leave the vercinity, they still decide to bark orders at you “Don’t go into restrictive area’s” , “Don’t do this, don’t do that“. Its like a psychological thing going on here. Even when you have done nothing wrong, you will never get an apology from any officer for doing something wrong. They have to display their control and dominance to you to show that they are in control. I am sorry to say, but as soon as that officer started barking at the auditor, that control was lost. Police are SUPPOSE to show a high level of professionalism to the people. If they have a right to be there, let them be. They are not your children so you do not need to give them directives. The reason why they give out directives is a power play. This is mentally disturbing and each cop within that sheriff’s Headquaters, need a psych evaluation.
One guy with a camera can distract an entire police department. The police no longer care about crimes once they see an auditor.
The best question to ask is, would you like a private citizen coming into your place of work and harassing you for social media views? I think not!
This is the kind of exposure every one can learn from. One would think that local news channels would show this videos on the 6 o’clock news hour.🤔
Mad cop with a serious ego problem. None of your business, how rude. This has nothing to do with policing. This is an occupation by a brutal corrupt force. Look at his eyes, he wants to pull that gun.
Everyone needs a personal camera. Imagine how this would have gone without his….
Some people get uncomfortable when people stick cameras in their faces and act all accusatory and angry, while being evasive. If you people tried these tactics on everyday citizens trying to get through their days, you would be assaulted, RIGHTFULLY, within minutes! You have no RIGHT to accost and harass others just because you are angry with the VAST minority of cops acting inappropriately! Trying to goad others into being defensive is DISGUSTING behavior! WHY don’t you know this?! YOU are being OFFENSIVE and expecting others to just “take it” while you KNOW if others came to YOUR jobs and did this sort of thing it would make you angry!
SHAME ON THIS BEHAVIOR! The PROPERTY is restricted and heavily monitored and defended because ignorant citizens have been harassing and threatening cops. I have NO PROBLEM with the behavior of any of the cops. They try to explain the situation calmly and the guy with the camera is belligerent and argumentative throughout the whole encounter. The cops showed GREAT restraint and I hope legislation is soon passed to disallow this sort of nonsense from happening on police property or during public police activity. You people should go through the PROPER channels with your complaints and reach out to those responsible for such relations and discuss it like ADULTS instead of schoolyard bullies!
Also, what is with the “pointing” at others?! Come pointing at me like that and that finger will smell REALLY bad in a few seconds, and you’ll have to clean up your rear end!
“the loudest one in the room is weakest one in the room”… -Frank Lucas Officer burly is a wrongful death law suit just waiting to happen. Look how angry he got offer the mention of a gun. That man was easily the school bully. He’s likely a womanizer too. He should be barred from anything having to do with law.
that officer is a absolute bully, its like he want to have a school yard fight. getting up in his face. then trys to tell him to calm done like he was doing something wrong.he should not be on the force. an abuse of power big time.
The invention of the camera will force alot of cops to have to learn the actual law and not make it up based on there feelings.
Shouting “Do you see my gun pulled out!” Sounds like a threat he wants to pull his gun out
5:58 “You sound aggressive sir, calm down!” Officer Berkholz is out of control! He should never be allowed to wear a badge.
Common in Louisiana Parish Sheriff’s Departments… I should know… I live in one and have dealt with them Here in Caddo Parish, the standard is a swaggering ” I GOTTA BADGE AND A GUN!” type attitude…. It’s fun to let them know that you don’t care….
Those guys are ticking time bombs. Stay tuned…
Did anyone else notice that two or more of these cops have their safety’s off their holsters ! Like they are preparing for a gun fight ! What’s the point of having a double retention holster if you don’t use it properly !
I really just think words mean some, and that cop right there so we control this… As long as the people let them control they will get away with it 🙂. The attitudes of the police are a direct correlation to how the people react, to all authority not just authoritative public agencies it’s a shame because it trickles down into school which house children. And I think we have a lot of of people that are critical thinkers thus is why we have so much lawlessness. Young people aren’t going to take trampoline on there rights nicely so what they end up doing is attacking all types of authority can’t be controlled by the parents of direct correlation to policing.
INTIMIDATE AND DOMINATE …THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE TAUGHT TO DO…ARMED, FULL OF ROIDS/RAGE, & DIM WITTED…A VERY DANGEROUS COMBINATION.
That dude is going to cost the department a LOT of money one day.
This is insane ! And I’d like to say who in the right mind would commit a crime and have it all video recorded ? Please someone answer that lmfao! These cops are POWER HUNGRY and it needs to end !
He got really mad when they talked about his gun, I bet if you look in to him he pulled it on some one and covered it up, this shows his scared of anyone finding out or looking in to his use of force.
One of those cops broke the Bane Act by blocking camera with his hand. Who Can Sue for a Hate Crime Under the Banes Act? The victim has standing to sue, as well as associates of the victim if they were also subjected to violence or threats of violence. Damages allowed include medical expenses, impaired earning capacity, lost property value, pain, suffering, emotional distress, and loss of services.
It’s amazing how they can walk up on you but, you can’t walk near them! You can’t yell but they can.
I’ll never forget the time my mom got pulled over .. Cop: why you acting all nervous? My mom : cause you have the tools of ignorance strap to your hip
Any police officer who refuses to identify, is not a cop. At that point you can walk away and tell him to get lost
@9:20 Imagine standing 5 feet away from your boss feeling entirely comfortable violating policy.
Aggressive cop kept taking deep breaths and still had a shaky voice because of his out of control anger
They know they have qualified immunity so they can pretty much get away with anything. And then if they lose a lawsuit it’s taxpayer money so they face no consequences whatsoever.
7:55 I know you’re fired up an everything, but you have got to let LEO go through their list of “don’t do’s”. When you’re being an ass about it, you make auditors look bad.
What was the need for all of that was the great question by the auditors 🙏💯❤. These cops went into programed mode of obey me cause I got a gun and a badge regardless of if it is right or wrong!. I like to see this happen to them 😤❤💯
Black people please don’t try what this guy is doing, because the cops will not have any patience at all for a Black person whether you’re right or not, you will be arrested, or maybe killed. It’s not about being scared or weak, it’s about realizing that there are two different laws in this country, one for white people and one for Black and Brown people. It’s a good thing to know your rights, but don’t go looking for trouble. That’s not in our best interest. We have a lot to deal with already when it comes to the police, we shouldn’t add to it purposely.
“We control the city” no officer… you SERVE the city.
I can’t imagine what it would be like for the good old do you see a gun pulled out Tyrant pulling a person over on the street with no cameras Watching God help that person
“Yes, that’s a lawful order.”
Which law is the order in reference to?
These idiot bullies genuinely don’t understand what the phrase “lawful order” actually means hahaha
By law all officers must identify upon request.
I believe that there are a few bad cops , but I hate these trouble makers with the cams.. They make problems instead of solving. If they want to fix things , they should follow politicians!
that cop would have through camera guy on the ground really quick if he wasn’t being videoed…that’s what was so frustrating to him..he wanted to get violent and couldn’t..
Look at the absolute contemptuous behavior of these ridiculous public servants. They are so frightened of being caught on camera that they immediately get aggressive, verbally abusive and completely disregarded the very same constitutional rights that they are sworn to uphold. They are disgusting and do not have the demeanor of a respectable child. It’s terrible people like these tyrants who choose to become police officers just to bully people and hide behind qualified immunity. These pigs represent modern law enforcement and we must not stand for this any longer.
That Moment when the roids kick in!
“Ya’ll don’t know who you’re messing with. Who I am … “ Was that really needed to support your case? I was with you until these childish statements let you down and showed too much of your ego
Notice how the one with his hand touching his gun removes it when you mention that they have guns. Don’t eat yellow snow, don’t run with scissors, and don’t scissor with the runs.
It starts out with 3 cops then turns into 12 cops for a call for service. Isn’t that called a mob ?
The main reason most thug cops HATE to give their name and number is that would be taking a direct order from a lowly civilian. When you are strapped and badged, you do not answer to those lower life forms.
They are NOT government officials. They are PUBLIC Officials. But if ya keep referring to them as such, then they’ll keep taking yards. Yes, we DO live inside of a Police State. Yes they ARE strangers. Mama always told ya neva to talk to strangers. Same rule applies here. Do not call them sir or mam either. Respect is earned, not awarded freely. Period.
Are cops trained to be petty? Serious question. Because it seems to be near universal. Like how they refuse to verbally identify only because somebody they have issue with asked them to. Be professional. Or how they never apologize to the person they gave unlawful orders to when a superior educates them that they are incorrect. Or always needing to get in the last word with unneeded directives. Cops may feel like they’re disliked by the public, but cops that act like this are earning that hatred for them all.
Sad part about this is there’s No Shame In His Game
as a Army veteran that SGT is a bloody disgrace that doesn’t train his troops what a joke SGT you need to get help from your officer in command and more training yourself
Every cop that’s says right here when asking your name, when they ask you, pat to your wallet and say right here
The biggest threat to a cop is a camera.
Is it just me or are the unreasonably angry cops always roided out?
I don’t get it! The Police know what he is doing but use these heavy handed tactics. Just let him do his thing and be on his way
Welcome to the United police states of Amerikkka. Nothing will change until qualified immunity is abolish and the police union pays for all lawsuits.
I think we should start calling this tactic, weeding out the Floyd killers
How much does the Parish Pay for cops? Such much money in capital! That is one of the largest and nicest HQ’s I’ve ever seen. We don’t have those in the NYC area.
It’s extremely odd how they won’t take PREVENTIVE measure for anyone else (stalking, dv, etc), but they will fight tooth and nail to detour you from basic rights involving them!
funny how the psychopath aggressive loose cannon cop shout at the peaceful guy with the camera to “CALM DOOWN!”.. trying to plant reason to beat the guy up, that was scary….
It is a guarantee that Bekholz has violated countless rights. That’s a loose cannon with a complex
Wow. Hypocrisy of asking the camera person to calm down when he’s the one yelling
angry cop says “do you see a gun pulled” but if they saw me with a holstered weapon you’d be damn sure they’d be yelling gun and I’d have 5 cops bringing me to the ground and 5 more cops pig piling on top of me.
Lmao, driving recklessly? All cops do that. That’s one of the main reasons they become cops.
He never said the cop drew his gun. He said he had one. Is he denying he has one?
This is their “us vs. them” mentality on full display
I was wondering what to do if the cops say you fit a description ( cops lie ) Do I identify? ( Missouri law)
Guaranteed these guys went out after and took out their frustrations on someone.
Guy is speaking calmly and saying deescalate Cop aggressively yelling while getting in his face: “you sound Agressive Sir, CALM DOWN!”
Cameras protect the innocent and damn the guilty.
Cops needs to be trained on Civil rights.
It’s always the tyrants who refuse to identify
“Right here”…. IS THAT WHAT YOU TELL THE JUDGE?!
This bad servant is trying to put words in the cameramans mouth. The cameraman’s words were “your the ones with guns” then the servant states “do you see my gun pulled out” that wasn’t stated by the cameraman.
Do not ask a cop a question that is answered yes or no. They will always answer in their favor.
Do your job sergeant. No law has been broken. You are law enforcement. You are to enforce laws and serve the pubic. You work for the public, act like it.
Stop yelling at us. That’s escalating.
LOL when they finally figure it out,,, “have a good day” with so much malice it is hilarious.
That aggressive officer is going to get his coworker hurt someday
Can’t even get public property from private property straight ?
Wow! That one dude I guarantee has killed people and made numerous false arrests as well as excessive force incidents!
They pick and choose when to respond and how. Supreme Court ruled they have no duty to act. “Wehave to tespond”. Bull.
_Macho macho macho man I wanna be, a macho man_ Testosterone poisoning all over the place. Good job checking the thugs. These are the tough guys that start to fear for their lives all of a sudden.
Old guard cops who can’t stand the modern age of citizens with video cameras who know their rights. Their “party” is over & they’re pissed.
If the cops lie to you they should be held accountable because if you lied to the cops you will be held accountable
If they act like fools in front of a camera,,what do you think they do when the cameras are off,,,bullies
Louisiana….where the cops rob you to protect you from being mugged!!
Just because you’re not holding a gun doesn’t mean you’re not armed.
Yeah the guy with the gray goatee just wants to put hands on him so aggressive does not know how to de-escalate and walk away God complex not only doctors have it but cops got it bad
I’ve heard of men having periods but I didn’t believe it until I seen officer “right here”
To be so triggered about his side arm should automatically be fireable offence. This lunatic, if he hasn’t already, will kill someone. I bet a million dollars he has already assaulted everyone he arrested in his career.
out of control, this will be used in a future abuse case of his
This is my parish and its sad that they don’t know the law.
the problem is the police view the public as adversaries
To all you that say they should be fired ,that not true ,they need to have there indorsement revoked so they can’t got to some other department and do the same.
So the dangerous driving by the sheriffs was never addressed
The thumbs in the chest suit is an aggressive position and cops should be fired for doing it.
That cop was so mad he was shaking.
Audit aside…. The “y’all don’t know who you’re messing with” and “y’all don’t know how big I am” is cringe as hell. What a nerd. Get over yourself lol!
Why are easily scared and offended people allowed to be officers? That’s like hiring a lifeguard who easily sun burns.
Oh. This is Louisiana. That just about explains it. Thank god they wasn’t in Alabama.
I think you hurt the cops fragile ego..he will probably go home have a drink and take it out on someone else.
The whole restricted area lecture is just a sad attempt to have the last word
Here’s a new directive for cops, don’t use sandpaper to wipe you ass.
You can see it in his eyes.
All he said was you have a badge and a gun…. And he went all the way to do I have it drawn
The Police could just handled this so much better. They just made themselves look so ridiculous on YouTube
Hotheads do not need to be in law enforcement!!!
hahha laughable the officer says I’m not answering anymore questions…..
What I don’t understand is why do they care if someone has a camera? What’s the big deal?
2:52….Looking for confirmation to go hands on…In my opinion.

Officers Enforce Non-Existent Laws

***CORRECTION*** Mr. Marshall would not have been legally obligated to present his ID unless he had been arrested at the time of the command. Michigan is not a stop and ID state, meaning that more than RAS is required to compel citizens to present ID.

 

“Soliciting without a permit”
“soliciting what?”
“Whatever you’re soliciting…”
“you don’t even know what I’m doing?”
“what are you soliciting?”

 

Imagine if police officers could be personally fined for unlawfull actions.
I love how cops are like “we don’t know why people don’t trust us”
Man I can’t imagine how ruined this guy’s life would be been without this wonderful woman
How could the cops be expected to know about a civil law that’s been around for only 400 yrs?
They had no problem trying to ruin this man’s life with a felony. Sorry isn’t enough.
They wanted to arrest him and take his kids to protective so the parents would have a case with CPS , any thing to destroy a family for no reason
You can tell that cop who initiaties the whole thing is really a dangerous guy. Its all about flexing power for him.
Both deputies should be fired. I understand the deputy wearing the glasses was fired, but the other one that stood by, watched, and did nothing to protect the victim from an unlawful arrest is just as guilty as the other. Both deputies are guilty PERIOD.
Love how the homeowner knows that petitioning is a constitutionally protected right
I love how down for the cause this random woman is. She’s just like, ‘oh word Officer? It’s like that?’ lol she’s not cool with their Gestapo tactics
The irony of him trying to obtain signatures for fair rights and then illegitimately cuffed is kinda amazing
I’m really impressed by the lady filming. She knew her shit and certainly conveyed it effectively and coherently. I wonder why she has to know all this, looks like this type of shit happens often around where she lives and she forced to have to know all these things. Sue the crap out of the department.
Some cops demand a “yes Master” attitude from citizens.
Ms Totsky is incredible. just unrelenting. perfectly handled to how she addressed the child situation then right back on the attack. total pro.
“Don’t mess with my rights” . How is such a powerful statement like that so easily overlooked by these two people?
>> Unchallenged power is like a drug and it numbs people who wield it.
>> because your first amendment is just an illusion or something told to a toddler to feel special
>> Shout out to the neighbor too! Looking out for him and the kids.
The shitty thing about all these cases is that the money that is paid out in these lawsuits is taxpayer money. What needs to happen is the money comes off their budget & then will start seeing some results.
Funny how the average person, with absolutely no police training/education, can have a better grasp of the law and our constitutional rights than the officers that are supposed to enforce those laws and protect those rights.
My props to the neighbor lady. I’m glad there’s more of us who are becoming outraged over racist and/or power hungry cops! I think both played a role here. Just my opinion. We all need to stand strong with other folks who are being treated unjustly. It’s absurd and pathetic that cops like this even exist! Officers used to be heroes and now they’ve become villains.
That was literally the most racially profiling and unreasonable search and arrest of a citizen that I have seen on this yet! The audacity of these officers challenging somebody on their own property is mind-boggling!
The truly tragic part of this interaction — there are two small children who have the majority of their lifetimes to not trust and/or hate police. Great job tyrant thugs.
Ms Totzke also has every right to sue: the deputies were abrogating her First Amendment rights too by denying her the right to participation in the political process.
Once again, all this injustice starts with an anonymous phone call from a Karen…if wrongly detained, these officers need to be held accountable AND these no life having 911 callers who get scared when they see black people minding their business..
This arrest truly breaks my heart. What bothers me most is the cop without the cap KNEW what was happening was WRONG in every sense of the word. When a good cop won’t stand up against a BAD cop, all trust is lost in this institution of law enforcement. This was only an act being perpetrated by a BULLY!!! The cop needs to go. Unfortunately, he will just move on to another town. HEART BREAKING
I’ve lived in Battle Creek my whole life and had no idea of this incident. Thank you for sharing, I am currently involved with the protection of rights and civil liberties in this city and this is great information to have.
Its BLATANTLY obvious that this Cop made the decision to arrest this man when he approached him with handcuffs in his hand already. Then he dodges every legitimate statement and question that both of these citizens present to him. There REALLY needs to be more done when hiring these cops to determine who is right and wrong for this type of work.
Just the look on the deputy’s face while talking… It takes a different kind of strength not to fight back.
of everything this lady did right, keeping those kids safe until she was able to personally deliver them to family, she is an angel.
Bless that homeowner for not backing down and sticking up for him!
A repeated theme I hear in these cases is officer lack of training. For most of these officers training has nothing to do with it. They let their ego and temper control the situation and abuse their power.
I love how the gal took complete ownership of her friend’s rights being trampled, and correctly viewed that as her own rights being trampled. If you observe wrong being done right in front of you and don’t speak out, how can you expect to have someone come to your defense when you’re the one being wronged
you need to institute an “F minus” mark for situations like this.
The lady is brilliant. They was wrong for this. They all stayed calm and made sure the children stayed calm too. It’s just disgraceful that this goes on so much. Smh
You go girl!!!! So proud of her. We all need neighbours like this lady.
Mr. Marshall was much more composed than I could have been in the same situation. I admire his patience and self confidence.
It amazes me that when you don’t obey their commands. All a sudden they egos steps a break their own laws by making up laws to put you in cuffs. It also seems that Officers hate being wrong ergo the the ego again.
Got to love how the sheriffs dept still defended him by claiming he was right just not in that county. Sorry but collecting signatures is legal in all jurisdictions. It’s called the 1st amendment.
Caller: “hey there’s a BLACK man out here trying to fight for our rights and make our community safer… can you come arrest him and let him know he has no rights and is not safe” Dispatcher: for sure I have the perfect pair of officers.
…it is clear from the video that the deputies had no interest in carrying out a legitimate investigation to determine the legality of Mr. Marshall’s conduct…🔥🔥🔥🔥💯
A 911 call was logged on the basis of suspected solicitation?! The energy levels of the deputies was way outta proportion to the situation from the very beginning. I might be able to go along with them trying to legitimately establish his residency on that property to eliminate trespassing concerns but that’s about it.
The hateful & arrogant look on that cops face, tells you everything about him.
Man, when AtA ends up going all the way back to the Magna Carta, you know you effed up.
I love how the second officer was so ashamed that he left without saying a thing
This one really pissed me more the usual. What a piece of trash. The cop literally went out looking to bully people. Hope he felt like a big man. Definitely deserves to lose his job and any benefits
“Transparency and honesty to our community is the foundation to all of our success.” This from the Sheriff … who will not release the name of the deputy. How is that transparency?
Thank you Mrs. Totsky for standing up for your neighbor. Also, I am so glad that the officer was terminated. However, I’m pretty sure he just went to another office and was hired. That ability to be rehired is a disservice to peaceful citizens.
Seriously this is why people have serious problems with cops. This shit gives me heartburn.
Can you give the deputy a double Z- for a lower grade than an F
After watching so many of these interactions the default response the police have is stating “hindering* whenever something doesn’t go their way.
Thank GOD for good neighbors and citizen’s who refuse to allow crooked cops to infringe on our rights!
There are so many of these videos that could have been resolved had the officers approached these non-violent situations with a little more understanding and a WILL to hear people out.
What is unbelievable is that without cameras this guy would be a convicted felon and that is why these police officers need to lose their badge and go to jail
That’s was awesome! And has the proper ending with the cop losing his job. That was ridiculous. Here is a man that is a good father, good role model, model citizen, pillar of his community and it was evident just by looking at things in front of the officer. Definitely a penis envy arrest. Every neighborhood should be so lucky to have a dude like this taking initiative and making the neighborhood safer, better, raising property value. What’s not to like?
What’s funny is that the second officer definitely did not want to do what they were doing. He was just caught up in it and had to go with his partner.

>> He didn’t have to go with his partner. he could have spoken up for what was right. The good cops need to control the bad cops, otherwise they are all bad cops.

>> You ppl at naive if u think that blue line of silence is going to be broken that easily

>>  @Gundawindy Ricketts  Exactly. This fraternity and blue line bullshit with garbage qualified immunity is all part of the problem. Start arresting and charging corrupt officers, DA, and judges with crimes as normal citizens and it will reform real quick. Being put on paid/unpaid leave is not a punishment, and they should not be allowed to be hired in other counties or cities.

>> This is why people say ACAB. You can’t say they’re a good cop if they stand by when this happens. The real good cops are fired, marked as snitches and chased out, or dead.

>> “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

>> No he didn’t. He could have pulled his partner aside and said…Man I don’t think this is an issue. Let’s let it ride…but he didn’t. And because of that he is at fault too.

Yet another example of what society gets when we encharge our law enforcement to individuals with only a high school level education and an academy that is the academic the equivalency of summer school for most 1st yr JC, college students.
this needs to keep on until it costs cities more in wrongful arrest compensation than they’re saving in under-training and under-educating their police.
I have been watching this channel for 2 days straight as I just found it and this case blows my mind more than most. A: He is being accused of soliciting B: He is being told by the person on whose property the police is on, confirming that he is not soliciting. That alone should have been enough. I could go on but this is a blatant case of power tripping in it’s finest. I am relieved to hear that this police officer has been fired. Excessive use of undue unlawful power in it’s finest.
I feel like so many of these officers would learn so much if their goal truly is, and stays throughout an interaction, to maintain the peace. This is a direct example of how police involvement led to an unnecessarily escalated conflict (likely due to their egos getting hurt)
I recommend that all cops from now on use a hiring method of any cop new or old to go through an ego and control evaluation and training to determine if they are even qualified to be around anyone on the field. Not all cops are this way but this cop on here has a control problem
These thugs have become so used to violating people’s rights that it becomes second nature to them. Qualified immunity needs to be removed.
One thing I’ve learned by watching a lot of these videos is how difficult it is for some cops to disengage once it is determined that no crime is being committed. I would bet that you could find that officers are less likely to disengage when the ‘suspect’ is a POC, especially if it the suspect is a black man. I think that this type of behavior is what fuels black mistrust of the police much more than the high-profile shootings / killing do. It sucks that Mr. Marshall had to go through this; however, I’m hopefully that, by recording these types of interactions will allow them to be used in training more even-minded and professional police.

 

“If you want to test a man’s character, give him power” – Abraham Lincoln
Police immunity should be removed from Law Enforcement for this very reason. Training should include Customer Service.
This is outrageous. I can’t believe they really did all this while knowing they were being filmed too. Chilling to think then how they behave when they know no one is watching. The nerve!! That man did NOTHING!
“we’ll figure that later” is the cherry on top of ingoring the request to give name and badge number. While being video recorded. I facepalmed so hard I now have a hand tattoo on my face
Watching these videos and thinking about my adolescence in Baltimore… makes me realize how many times my rights where violated by Baltimore city police. I’ve been cuffed, slammed on the hood, searched and detained three times just because I was well dressed.. literal words from the cops mouth.
I need you to read to me for nighty night time. 30% of the reason I watch these is how articulate, calm, and concise you are in these videos.
Too many times we see so called law enforcement getting an “F” because of ego tripping self righteousness.
Here’s my problem. More times than not, even AFTER the cities or counties have paid out huge lawsuits, these Bozo’s are more often than not, still LEO, somewhere.
The best part…”yall messed up, ya messed up.” Officer Pudgy’s expression was worth his weight of gold!!
“You’re under arrest!” – For what? “We’ll figure that out!”
I’m on the side of the police when they are right. In this video, the man being arrested is right.
Learn the Law Follow the Law Especially if you are supposed to enforce it!!!
“I’m dealin’ with him not you.” The goddamn arrogance and ego it must take to say that to someone on that person’s property is staggering.
Sad to see police officers in my own hometown be so bad at their profession
Two years to be a hairdresser. Six months to be a cop…. Where’s the problem here?
The officer should have been arrested for the felony of violating this man’s civil rights.
>> Deprivation of rights under color of law.
This has been taking place since 1836 with the opening of the first full time police department in Boston Massachusetts. If this is going to change, the first step is to devolve all city police, place them under the Sheriff.
So this good samaritan is actually trying to improve his community with no expectation of compensation going above and beyond his civic duties and some cops come harrass him. This type of shit makes me seriously angry.
What it boils down too is having to record everything all the time. That’s why I have a phone holder on my dashboard. If I ever get pulled over, my camera is going
it really angers me how these cops do what ever they want with citizens i know we have rights but cops dont care
This proves why any contact with police should be avoided whenever possible
6 months of training is not sufficient, they literally can destroy someone’s life with legal actions. END QUALIFIED IMMUNITY
Trying to do something good for his community and this is what happens. Absolutely disgusting turn of events. I’d love to have neighbours like him and the woman who was filming.
“put your hands behind your back”
“I’m not doing anything illegal”
“We don’t know that, put your hands behind your back”
“I’m getting signatures”
“You’re soliciting, put your hands behind your back”
“That’s not illegal”
“We can’t think of anything else to do, we’re very low skilled individuals”
In the cops mind, it’s too much work to investigate what crime has been commited. Even if no crime has been committed, as long as a person makes a call, and police make contact, you’ve commited a crime and are going to jail. No questions asked.
This is possibly the most disturbing video I’ve watched on this channel, and that’s saying a lot. I am so disgusted by the officers’ absolute disregard for the law, civil rights, police procedure and just all logic. Losing their jobs is not enough. They need to go to prison and this man needs to sue that police department into bankruptcy.
This is a prime example of why we should always video any and all interactions with the police. Things can go sideways quick.
“How many times I gotta tell you to turn around and put your hands behind your back?” You gotta keep saying it until it’s a lawful order silly billy.
Imagine all those victims before because no cameras or phones caught such pieces of shit.
>> I was one of those victims from the LAPD in the late 80’s….that’s why when the King recording came out, I was SHOCKED someone got it on video
>> Oh they were and are commonplace. It sucks because there ARE many police departments across North America which are exactly what you’d hope they’d be, but since policing is such a necessarily invasive act (not in a bad way, just objectively by nature), the failures and crimes of bad officers and departments often have especially serious impacts on individuals’ lives.
Good cops do a job that does need doing, and that most of us really don’t want to do ourselves. I still agree with nation-wide police reform, up to the federal level of police regulation, and not just in the US, but certainly there first.
 @Smile & Be Happy  I think Ryleigh doesn’t understand that cops like these do dirty things to people of color because of qualified immunity. With video of them committing battery and assault they don’t fear any punishment at all.
General question: can you get police removed from your property, like trespassing?
What’s ironic is, the officers are refusing to provide their own personal information as they commit a crime and are arresting him for ‘obstruction’ of a crime that doesn’t exist.
As a former resident of BC, I’m telling you this is how this counties cops have always been…above the law and people are nothing. Especially if you have issues beyond your control, they treat you like dirt
We had such high hopes for the unnamed deputy, he graduated at the top of his class
And again , if there was no one recording this tyranny who knows what would have happened to this man.. felony resisting? Tf??!!??
13:34 I find this very troubling, for there is no part of the LEO conduct in the video that could possibly be lawful anywhere in the U.S.A., so to say that he was enforcing ordinances that are valid in other areas is either the scariest thought possible or a flat out lie. I’m going to go with lie so the public does not scream for prosecution of yet another thug with a badge. 18USC241 seems rather appropriate. Administrative leave is more condoning the behavior than anything, it amounts to a paid vacation.
This happens way too many times and it needs to stop
The ‘silent’ officer in the background who bought the business card knew it was all wrong! His behaviour when he handed over that card to her statements spoke louder than any words!
“We have a caller” Translation: we can do what we want, and you have no rights unless we let you have them.
I feel so bad for the good cops who are being judged because of tyrants like this! The guy was doing nothing wrong!
When the interaction started, I would have requested a supervisor on the scene now.
These police are literally ignoring the property owner who they were basically trespassing. Wow this has me heated.
Even in states that “claim” to be stop and ID states still must have RAS of a crime to ID or detain you.
Another example of why I LOVE good cops.
What we need to remember also is the police are usually called in by a neighbor.
“I’m collecting signatures”
“Signatures for what?”
“It doesn’t matter”
“It DOES matter” — because if we don’t like what you’re collecting signatures for, we’re going to arrest you.
>> 100% …he didnt dare say what it was for…

>> The irony is amazing

I swear most of those videos could’ve ended in less than a minute if everybody did what that lawyer in Alabama did. When cops want to arrest you for false accusations just go with it, comply and remain silent. When they take you in, get a lawyer and congrats for the money you’re about to make. But making a scene and giving the cops a lot of points to argue with against you?!
“there was a phone call”
Apparently that line can have all your rights violated.
These seem like cops that have a very strong understanding of the impunity that the qualified immunity grants them

.. Yeah I think The cop did it right. That’s exactly how they do me every time. Tell me about the laws im breaking threaten to arrest me. And then ask me what I’m doing.

What I find even more frustrating is that “solicitation” is what the 911 caller said it might be, and nobody, from the dispatcher on down to the Barney Fife the idiot who arrested the guy neither knew nor bothered to look up if “solicitation” was even a thing in their municipality.
For the record: This didn’t happen in Battle Creek, it happened in Springfield, a small city completely surrounded by Battle Creek in the northern part of the city.
I live one county north, less than 30 miles away, and I’m familiar with the area.
10:44 his silence spoke volumes….he knew they were done
