Here is the video proof of my previous post about this officer forcing his way into my moms house (without legal documentation) and arresting my brothers friend without explanation. PLEASE REBLOG TO RAISE AWARENESS!!
I’m honestly appalled at this and I’m sorry this happened. Something similar happened to my dad’s friend (I watched this happen to my dad’s friend) so I can imagine how scary this must have been.
this just made me nauseous. all jokes aside.
I saw this via Facebook the other night & my heart broke to hear a black man begging an officer of the law not to be shot. && please don’t hit me with that he was resisting bullshit because he asked several times, why he was being bothered, why he was being placed under arrest
PASS THIS AROUND
Things like this sicken me.
*edit : just read a news article on this. In the article it states,
But a citizen cannot declare an arrest unlawful and resist just because they haven’t been informed of the reason for their arrest. “You can’t have citizens second-guessing whether the officer has probable cause,” Hoeffel (attorney weighing in on the video/situation) said.
It has to be absolutely clear that the officer has no basis to make an arrest as opposed to guessing that he has no basis. That doesn’t appear to the case with the incident in River Ridge, according to Hoeffel. Still, she said it’s just good policy to inform a citizen of the reason for an arrest.
It’s good policy?! How about we make it an ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY policy to inform the person why you are placing them under arrest. There are so many loopholes police can use as scapegoats, it’s disgusting.
The sad truth is that even if we cooperate with police or not (even when they are illegally searching our home or illegally arresting us), they will always find us guilty of a crime.
I hope these officers pay for THEIR crimes against this young man. I hope they are found guilty of disturbing the peace and unlawful arrest & are made to turn their badges in, permanently. I’m sick of shit like this happening and their “punishment” is being suspended WITH pay.
