Cops Gone Wild

Do I need to comment?

Just an isolated incident of course. And man, how brutally this girl resisted. And wow, how clearly the cop described to her how she was under arrest. What was that about a world where only the cops had guns? Well, as much as many of us hate the idea of the surveillance state, at least now we citizens have cameras too.

    I’ve noticed in the last two years that for just about any incident I see newspaper pics of various police and SWAT teams all decked-out in tactical gear and walking around with assault rifles, sometimes arriving in armored vehicles. Just this week some nut threatened someone in NYC with a muzzle-loading musket. Of course the SWAT team was there in full regalia.

    The slide toward a police state continues. Not only did Obama not reverse this trend, he maintained or even accelerated it.

    To wit …

    Drunk and disorderly. D.C. Criminal Code § 24-604 and § 22-1321.

    What really makes one feel safe is that no other police arrived to control the situation, including the humiliating treatment. The movie ended without anyone else showing up. Hard to tell who is drunk and disorderly, or whether the “cop” presented an ID.

    Shouldn’t they work in pairs? If it was the DC Metro, don’t say it was because of budget cuts at DHS.

    Nor did the cop get any names of witnesses, including the one with the camera.

    The cop repeats to her that she should not resist. I think he is covering his backside by eliciting that resistance, so a charge of resisting arrest can stick if the disorderly conduct does not. Also, it sets up a plea bargain: plead guilty to disorderly conduct and the resisting arrest charge gets dropped.

    Is it illegal to be drunk in DC? What about the Kennedy family?
