My question is – why would the police object to being filmed if they were performing public service as opposed to engaging in illegal activities? Isn’t public service what they’re paid to do using the public money?
The video is from Las Vegas. A man fully within his right to film was assaulted by cops who repeatedly used the ever awesome phrase that seems to green-light all police brutality: “Stop Resisting!”
How awesome is that. The police assault you for no reason other than them being on a power trip, but the use of the “Stop Resisting” phrase somehow makes them look like they’re protecting the public from a dangerous individual. You could be doing fuck all, the cops would slam your face against the hood of their cruiser, body slam you to the ground, kick you in the face and repeatedly punch you, but as long as they do it while repeatedly uttering the Stop Resisting phrase, somehow it makes them look like they’re in the right.
I fear to imagine how many an innocent man ended up in jail for having been grabbed from behind by a cop and flinching – which is a natural reaction to something abnormal happening to you. The cop (intentionally?) interpreted the flinch as resistance, yelled “Stop Resisting” and an innocent man, without as little as looking the wrong way at the cop ended up in jail with an assault on a police officer charge. No wonder cops hate people filming them, seeing how it always seems to incriminate them as abusers of power. I am under the impression that if the cops weren’t illegally assaulting people, they would have no reason to fear being filmed.
The victim of power tripping cops from this video was awarded $100k in court. If he were black, he could have screamed “racism” kind of like all black people do, and he’d be a millionaire. Leftist sheep would make sure of that.
