The people who agree with the cop are even more drating retarded. Go slit your wrists.
This happened in a municipality in the metropolitan area where I live. The officer has been suspended without pay and he`s being investigated now. The chief of police for that department is also being investigated for some other issues now too. It`s known to be a horrible area. They set up speed traps all the time and are generally non-nice individuals. I never go anywhere near that area. I don`t think the cop will keep his job after this.
Actually he was helping out his friend who was working after hours by picking him up. You sir are a goober and a not nice individual. Your attitude is despicable.
Also the cop lied about the kid committing a crime, he made it up and the investigation shows that.
Was there a point to that? )-| (Obviously I shortened your quote.
"1) The kid is out looking for trouble, he seen the cop and pulled right in. I wouldn`t doubt the simple fact he knows that the lot he was going into was closed."
The commuter lots here in St. Louis are never closed. They are there so that anyone at any hour can pull in, park their car, and carpool, catch a bus, etc.
"2) The police officer started out VERY polite, and the kid was a smart ass little bastard as soon as he opened his mouth."
The kid asked if what he did wrong. It`s a perfectly legitimate and allowable question. The cop blew up on him after that.
"That kid was out filming looking for trouble and to cause a some poo. He pushed the cops buttons on purpose and knew exactly what he was doing, so the little non-nice individual deserves all of it."
Even if he was looking for trouble, that doesn`t give the cop a right to falsify charges or try to tamper with evidence, which is a felony.
Oh, and he`s not a kid. He`s 20.
And for God`s sake, what the hell is with all the clicking noises?
that poor cop, he`s dumb. i feel sorry for those who live with him.
thankfully the police encounters i`ve dealt with have been nothing but pleasant. i`ve been pulled over a total of 5 times. best part about it? i`ve been ticketed none of those 5 times. they were all speeding violations, some in excess of 15 mph. i call that lucky.
I had a job like that and I got pulled over quite a few times for "looking suspicious". It got to be rather annoying. I never was pulled over by a cop like this, though. I can`t believe that the kid kept his cool so well. It`s hard when somebody is in your face like that to remain calm.

Without the video, Darrow tells TheNewspaper that he would have stood no chance disproving the officer`s word in court. Twenty-eight percent of the St. George municipal budget comes from traffic citations. Darrow wonders how many of the tickets were legitimate.
I thought this was the most important part. Thanks Aboringstory.
long story short, just cuz a cop seems like an non-nice individual, doesnt mean he is. obviously this officer was trying to scare the guy into changing his attitude. cuz lets face it, the kid was dratin with the cop...at least in the beginning.
i dont think the cop was right in his approach at all...he definetly took it too far. but i think youre catching my drift
AND QUIT CALLING HIM A KID OR A TEEN!He`s my age - he`s 20!
"I`ll make up nine things...?" Whaaat? Can`t this guy get in trouble for that? This cop should get suspended...or a brick to the face, either or.
After watching this, I almost want to put cameras in my car as well. Because, that is one thing that scares me. If ever I come across an officer like this and then have to go to court. How do I prove my word against his?
^^^You are an absolute idiot. He was going to be picked up by a friend, and he obviously WASN`T up to know good if even a cop who would be searching for ANY F*CKING THING to keep his job, couldn`t get ANYTHING! He had the video camara (because of him being assualted by a off-duty drunk cop in the past) and even when they tried to pin him with the scanner, HE HAD IT OFF!I COMPLETELY agree with Darrow:
"Without the video, Darrow tells TheNewspaper that he would have stood no chance disproving the officer`s word in court. Twenty-eight percent of the St. George municipal budget comes from traffic citations. Darrow wonders how many of the tickets were legitimate."
It`s scary to think that a person who is supposed to represent the law can be so utterly unfair and unjust. I admire how prepaired Darrow was for this. It inspires me to do the same.
PUNK ASS COPS TRY TO INTIMIDATE YOU BY ALMOST KISSING YOU. SERIOUSLY, THEY GET REALLY IN YOUR FACE SPRAYING YOU AND SH`T. YOU TURN YOUR HEAD TO AVOID THE SPITTLE AND THEY GET MORE PISSED! FACE ME WHEN I`M TALKING TO YOU!!! YOU BACK UP TO AVOID BEING SPRAYED WITH SALIVA AND YOU ``RESIST ARREST AND TRY TO RUN, BECOME COMBATIVE.`` BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES.
That Cop won`t have a job soon and the kid didn`t even get a ticket! ROFL stupid COP you are a joke.
Oh really? Well good luck trying to arrest a person for listening to crappy music retard. If you actually passed high school, you would know that listening to whatever music you want is classified under FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
Don`t talk back to a police officer? Talking back is your right as an American under the first amendment. Lets see how well you deal with a police officer that accuses you of a crime you did`nt committ, dumb a s s.
Stop wasting valuable oxygen that intelligent life needs.
Also, where does it say it the law that it`s breaking the law to have an "attiude".
I have yet to meet a nice cop, but there are quite a few of them out there. Not every cop is like this one.
At least, I hope not haha.
After it was all done I ended up with a ticket for speeding, and to top it off he wrote the ticket using my former licsense plate number.(I am a former resident of NJ and now live and use PA liscence plates.) Fun times. Shame I didn`t aheva camera so I could challenge the ticket.
On another note about respecting authority, I`m all for that. But part of what gives authority it`s power is that we choose to grant it that power (at least in the US). Part of the contract is that we have a right to defend ourselves against unreasonable use of that power. Again, drawing from my own past, if this situation were to have happened to me under the same circumstances (camera and all), I would have reacted in a similar fashion and probably even started laughing. Honestly, I can`t help but smile when authority figures attempt to abuse power and I know I`m in the clear. He should have let the cop arrest him for refusing to answer the questions. 20 bucks says he wouldn`t have been read his Miranda rights, and considering everything else, he would have been fine in court.
Plenty of people claim the kid was probably cop baiting, hence the camera.
If rifter has the right information, and "As far as Brett is concerned, he says he originally installed the cams because of a traffic ticket (running a red light) he got yet couldn`t prove he was innocent. He figured it was extra insurance against the tickets," then it`s not unreasonable to assume that the camera is always running (like Devi`s cameras).
So the camera doesn`t prove anything towards baiting. The only other reason people say points to baiting is that he pulls into a parking lot at 2 AM. I dunno about y`all, but personally, when I`ve had a bad day/night, I like to find a quiet place to stop and separate myself from it all. An empty parking lot at 2 AM does that job inc
Good thing he`s off duty now. Maybe now he can relax on a nice beach in Hawaii.
That cop reminded me of something used to flush out a vagina. How is any self respecting, free thinking individual not going to fight back when threatened by that pile of rectal discharge? When someone in power tries to be a prick to me it just makes me want to strike back in some way. The kid knew his rights and the cop was obviously too used to being able to do whatever he wanted. If I ran that town that cop would have been lynched for his abuse of power. Make an example of these bad apples instead of giving them nice vacations when they act like bullies. Who knows, maybe we will start seeing some positive cop vids.. (don`t hold your breath)
Yeah, this is why modern society is screwed. The necessary evil of law enforcement will always be corrupt in one way or another. The police have a tough job to do, but some of them just need to lighten up. There are plenty of good cops out there that genuinely care, so don`t judge all cops by this jackass.
The cop has been suspended without pay and his chief is extremely unhappy with him. Most likely, he will lose his job because if this incident. And the cop`s tape? It mysteriously disappeared.
As far as Brett is concerned, he says he originally installed the cams because of a traffic ticket (running a red light) he got yet couldn`t prove he was innocent. He figured it was extra insurance against the tickets.
The Kid is definatly cop bateing, and also contradicting himself in his transcript (linked above) saying the scanner was off when we call all hear it on.
The cop was just an arse full stop.
Both go stright to jail and do not pass go!
Teenagers suck anyway and not only should he have been arrested for listening to crappy music, he should learn to respect authority and not talk back to a police officer.
You guys just see the occasional tape showing bad behavior, I have almost been killed while trying to help someone with a disabled car, got clipped by a drunk driver and knew a officer who took a bullet so he wouldn`t have to shoot a kid.
On the flip side, I knew an officer who was dealing drugs while on duty (in jail know) and another who liked to get drunk and drive around on base knowing he wouldn`t get in trouble because he was related to the first shirt. Cops are human, and just like every other aspect of life you will find good and bad, the problem is you only hear about the bad, and/or remember the bad experiences with them.
His voice was so annoying it would`ve made me "try him"..
Zerocyde: You can be the KING of America all you want... you`ll just be locked up in an Asylum but Hey! At least you`ll be happy... "killing teens"
