Watching this, I am infuriated, and also very deeply concerned over the appalling lack of freedom and REAL law in this country.
"It's all on video.", states the THUG in a police uniform. That's right, buddy, it is, including all the multiple rights violations you committed!
1. At best, this was a very minor "crime"; correcting something that needed replaced anyway, and that was already partially corrected. This isn't a
case of vandalism, but a case of someone trying to correct a directional map that the school didn't bother to proof before posting it, so students
didn't get lost. In fact, the school should not have to pay ANYTHING to have this corrected, unless they submitted it incorrectly for printing in the
first place. If this was a printer error, a correction would be at no cost. If not, the school messed up, and had to correct it whether anyone wrote
on it or not. Sure, this woman could have reported it, but I am betting it already WAS reported, and nothing was done. This "crime" didn't hurt
anyone, and was helpful to students. Even sending the police after this woman is beyond ridiculous. Now, instead of simply writing a citation (gee,
they can't afford ticket books OR correctly printed signs?!?!?), they tell her she has to go to the police station to receive one? Imagine if traffic
cops worked that way! Plus, isn't there some limit as to what sort of offense even warrants an arrest? There ought to be!
2. The cop was throwing his weight around. Apparently, he has to bully women much smaller than him in size to feel "like a man". Here's a hint to
the cop - you failed! I hope every single woman that knows you tells you what a complete jerk (though I prefer the term this woman used) you are.
That cop disgraced his uniform, and any officer that sides with him is equally disgraceful. This is a very clear excessive use of force issue. There
as no need for her to go to a station, and her asking for a moment wasn't cause to knock her around and force her arms around a backpack to place the
cuffs on her. She was no threat to anyone.
3. Who the heck does this cop think he is, to try and tell her what words she is and isn't allowed to use??? Freedom of speech violation, anyone?
Plus, after telling her she couldn't say certain things, he was goading her, and rubbing it in her face, that he could do what he did.
4. NO ONE read this woman her rights. Not once, in the whole video, that I could hear. If there is any justice, she will end up owning half the
university and their "police" (more like uniformed thugs and bullies!).
I sincerely hope that all students there withdraw if this thug isn't severely punished for his multiple abuses and rights violations.
Edited to add - one other rights violation - refusing to allow her to know who accused her of a crime!
