First i wanna say that i respect the job that Police do, putting their lives on the line everyday to keep us safe. Most cops are very profesional in the way they conduct themselves and the way they go about putting away the bad guys. But having said that, I also wanna bring to light the way that(some) cops abuse there power. Recently i have gotten caught up watching videos on youtube of cops disregarding(law abiding) civilians constitutional rights. Example A is in this following video.
After watching this video it's pretty obvious to me that this Cop arrested Chris moore only because Chris would not give up his helmet cam, He HIMSELF was not breaking any laws and was being harrassed soley because this cop was angry at some of his fellow motorcyclist.
Second is a video of a marine in temple texas who is LEGALLY open carrying a firearm while on a 10 mile hike with his son.
In this video you can clearly hear this officer say that he is "Exempt from the law"... The officer was origionaly sent on this call because citizen's had called in concered about a man carrying an AR15 openly on his chest which is not a crime.
This third and final video is of a police officer illegally arresting a man for not showing his ID even though he was never suspected of committing a crime. Unless you are suspected of committing a crime you ARE NOT legally obligated to show ID.
This officer was eventually fired and relieved of her duties as a police officer. The thing that really bothers me about this video is her holier than thou additude towards the civilian.
Id love to hear all of the opinions on this subject.
Wait till you get to the videos of cops beating the crap out of people.
Did you see the one of the shooting that was in the news? Cop got acquitted of everything, not even manslaughter.
They had three black kids sitting against the wall as they talked to them (harassed them) about something or other. One cop grabs on of the kids and throws him face down on the floor, putting his knee in his back. Another holds his arms. Third cop stands there looking on. All of a sudden the third cop draws his gun and fires into the kid's back.
Defense at trial: I thought it was a taser.
There's also a video from some subway police shooting a guy in the back, who was just lying on the ground handcuffed, face down.
Kid wasn't even moving when he pulled it out.
Ive already seen ALOT of these types of video. Ive seen one where 2 or 3 cops beat a man to death then they arrested the witnesses and confiscated there video of them beating said person to death. I think the thing that bothers me most about these video's is alot of people treat the police like they are the end all be all, that we have to listen to everything they say or we will end up in jail.
