Officers Threaten And Kick Handcuffed Man In Seattle Washington

[youtube width=”560″ height=”340″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B45QPOfpZcE[/youtube]

It turned out the man was not the robbery suspect, and the officers let him go. OOPS!

Racial profiling at its finest. I hope that guy that got stomped and insulted cashes in bigtime on that bullshit.

“You got me? I’m going to beat the (expletive) Mexican (expletive) out of you homey. You feel me?”

Cameras are the best thing that have ever happened to the general public.

Yea it’s tough seeing stuff like this because it tarnished the image of ALL law enforcement, not just those 2 people. I really hope officers that are involved with crap like that are disciplined to the nth degree.

Police aren’t always bad, but often (too often) things like this happen.

There’s a video of some good police work. An elderly woman here fired her pistol at a burglar, and when police arrived, they reloaded the pistol for her and arrested the man.

That is how it is supposed to be.

Specification/clarification: cameras in the hands of the public are the best thing that have ever happened to the general public.

Red light cameras, speed cameras, and government-run surveillance cameras – those, however, are an unmistakable travesty of liberty.

Good point Linoge. Spy cameras that make the government money or invade privacy I’m definitely not down with.

Stuff like this makes me stand on my policy of NOT EVER pulling over for an unmarked police car, and if lights are flashing I’m going to make it known I’m calling the Dept. to verify that an officer is/was in the area and their badge number/name matches.

Good idea I agree, but chances are by the time you call the department and ask your question, the officer is already in the process of ramping up his aggression in pulling you over.

I wish we’d see news stories about them really coming down HARD on officers that pull crap like this. This would be bad even if they were guilty of something (presumed innocent until proven otherwise though, of course). It’s too bad that the law enforcement community often supports their own in situations like this; it just breeds distrust of all of them with the public. I hope that guy has found himself a good lawyer.

Yea incidents like this definitely are serious business and should be handeled by an external 3rd party. Those “internal investigations” they talk about are such bullshit. Even the most uneducated person knows that is just a euphemism for “sweeping it under the rug”.

DAMMIT!
Everyone at my university hates police, because most of them are from L.A. where the cops will basically shoot you if you’re Latino or black. People like this blacken the name of every decent, law-abiding LEO who actually helps communities. I wish we could see these guys all but tarred and feathered in the news, instead of being swept under the rug.

What’s wrong with law enforcement is that they aren’t always held accountable. One time a SWAT raid ended in the death of one (two?) people. They found some bags and a scale with residue that tested positive for cocaine. Not even enough for a conviction. No one was charged with anything.
Then you have the every day violations of the law that would result in a citation for us plebeians.

Thanks br. I saw the same article on another site and blogged about it today. It’s actually the EXACT same article, so I don’t even know now who originally wrote it. Kinda sketchy that someone is taking credit for someone else’s work by posting an entire article and not even citing the source.

They both attribute it to Wendy McElroy, editor of ifeminists.com
