Nice write up and explanation of the vid for us mobile users with low bandwidth/limited data. That is appreciated.
These days I think I would rather have some random criminal type looking to harm come to my door than the police. At least the criminal doesn't likely have professional training on a regular basis on how to best kill.
A man in Inglewood, California, is receiving both praise and criticism for the way he handled a recent exchange with a pair of police officers who knocked on his door while searching for a wanted felon accused of beating his girlfriend. Avel Amarel uploaded video of the interaction to Facebook on August 25 and it has since been shared more than 10,000 times.
Many YouTube commenters are praising Amarel for knowing his rights and “shutting down” the police. However, a smaller minority also say he was overly difficult and uncooperative with officers who were trying to locate a dangerous suspect. There were some people who didn’t particularly like the way either party handled the situation.
Further, Amarel’s Facebook page makes his views on the police pretty clear. In the Facebook post that included the now-viral video, he wrote:
Police think they can do whatever they want nah not today not with me I’m never ignorant of The law tawmbout they gone drag me out my house making empty threats to a boss! You gotta kno ya sh*t out here cause these devils scanless out here
In a different August 25 Facebook post, he wrote, “F*** the police… they give us no peace.”
He then uploaded another explicit video on September 1 in which he claims he will be “shooting back” if cops shoot at him “like they did Mike [Brown]” in Ferguson, Missouri.
Cops Knock on Man’s Door, Ask to See ID and ‘Check’ His House.
