Description from LiveLeak:



A horrifying video has emerged showing St. Petersburg police forcing a man out of his car before pouncing on him, leaving him hospitalized with several injuries, all because the cop claims he was in fear for his life. At least that what he says in his report, where he wrote the following: "I exited my marked patrol cruiser and walked towards the vehicle and I noticed the driver staring at me with a blank stare as he continued revving the engine louder and louder. I thought by his actions the subject was going to attempt to hit me with his car." The video, however, shows it was Curtis Shannon, a young man from Florida who should have been in fear for his life during the arrest. It also shows that he remained professional as he tried to hand the cop his license and registration through a small opening after the cop pulled him over for what he claimed was erratic driving. But if anything was erratic, it the was behavior of the cop, which unfortunately, Shannon refuses to identify out of what he says is "respect." The cop deserves no respect because he was downright criminal. A thug with a badge. A proud member of the Blue Mafia.

I have personally experienced the argumentive behavior of LEO. Everyone should always record every LEO stop. Notice how the officer didn't want the recording?

I want to see the dashcam. That officer needs to be fired. Poor LEO a citizen knew his rights. Poor LEO a citation turned into a career change due to bad training.

Here's more from Raw Story:


In a police report provided by Shannon, the officer — whose name had been withheld — claimed that “Shannon then exited the car and charged towards me.”

“I then pushed Shannon away from me and advised him ‘to stop resisting’. Shannon then attempted to charge towards me again and I escorting Shannon to a [sic] the ground using an armbar takedown maneuver,” the police report stated.


Ah, the 'ol South Park, "IT'S COMING RIGHT AT US!" excuse!

Also notice that while him complying with the cop and getting out his car is "charging" the cop slamming him to the ground is "escorting."

WTF.

You are required by law to step out of the car when told to do so by LE.

I have no idea if this guy was actually "assaulted". Maybe. Maybe not. I also have no idea how reasonable the officer was being up to this point. I'm kind of doubting he was. He seemed like a dick.

I would be a little suspicious and jumpy if I went to pull someone over and they didn't do so at the first opportunity. Driving a few extra blocks is a bad idea. Not rolling your window down when asked is a bad idea. Not getting out of the car is illegal, and a bad idea.

I have been tempted to record brush ins with police for a few years now, yet I have only had one chance. And as it were, I did not think about it, I was polite and did what the officer asked, and he let me off with a warning for speeding....

Yes, sometimes they go too far. And sometimes out of those few other times, is it complete negligent policing or some jackwagon that never should have been a cop in the first place. But when you go out there looking from the beginning for trouble, I have no sympathy for you when you find it. This person can not tell me from the get go, that when he started filming, he was hoping absolutely nothing would occur out of the ordinary.

I don't know, bash me if you want. I have been on all sides of the fence, I have been arrested in my younger years and hate the hell out of the cop that did it (driving without insurance, I was broke, it happens). And yet, when it happened, I did what he wanted, and was out of there within an hour.

You may hate what it stands for, or the fact they do whatever the hell they want to chase you down. But without rules, and regulations, and yes, someone to enforce them, you can not have freedom. Sounds contradictory? It is. But it works, and I have a nice house now and a wonderful life compared to like 90% of other countries even though I am considered lower class.

It could be better, but it could be on heck of a lot worse for all of us.....

This incident actually took place in December.

He launched a Go Fund Me campaign on Sunday to pay the lawyer and to move to a safer place.

In just 2 days he has raised $1000 out of a projected $5,000.

Fired? That's it? This man should go to trial for assault and battery. Deprivation of rights under color of law to boot.

Anyone else in favor of life in prison for police officers who abuse their authority? Or is this really the country we want to live in?

All these laws were enacted due to the original know your rights movement. Every time the public learns the laws change.

The problem is when officers are not specifically fired for this behavior they sometimes simply move and reapply in other jurisdictions.

Especially if all their education was in this feild they tend to stay in this feild in some form or another.

ETA: no one knows how to abuse the system better than people running the system.

At one point I heard on the news once that you should only open your window far enough to hand your license out if it is night or you are alone. People were being raped and accosted by fake police and some cases were real police, how can they demand you get out of the safety of your car for a traffic offence? Scary now days. They also mentioned pulling over near buildings or people if you could get to them in a short distance.

Can't reapply if they are in jail, where "LEO‘s" like this belong. Just because you have a badge, doesn't make you above the law.

Just my two cents. :-)

Yeah that's kind of a weird one. I remember seeing the news advise that you call dispatch to check if the stop is legit. I think if that was articulated the cop would probably be fine with it. I do remember one blowhard telling people to keep driving until they got to a police station. Yeah, that might not be a good idea especially if you're out in the sticks.

Either way the Supreme Court has made it pretty clear that if you are ordered out of your vehicle you need to comply.

There are certainly circumstances where I wouldn't get out of the car or roll down the window completely. This wasn't one of them.

Here's an article on fake cops. Link

I would be REAL careful about some of that advice.

Idiot should have rolled his window down.... He sounded like he was obviously hiding something, and by the defiance of not rolling down his window it's believable he charged the officer. What an idiot...

Being asked to step out of the car because i didn't use my signal light? Yeah right buddy, write me a ticket.

But to be fair, he screwed that one up. A simple "Officer am i being detained?" would have worked.

Don't they need a reason to pull you out of your car?
Not just cause they want to?
