The Mountie is part of the “boys in blue club”, even if his comrade F’d up, he is going to cover for him. I know this because almost everyone I
know is in the “boys in blue dot org”. Then you add a bit of other officers getting involved in a BS take down, and the adrenalin gets flowing,
and these guys (other cops) that should have butted out don’t, they see the chance to take out a “cup’o’frustration” in what they consider a
legal fashion (the prisoner disobeyed a direct verbal command). You would not believe how much weight these cops put on the disobeying "a verbal
command" thing, even if that verbal command is to put your head between your knee’s and kiss your own buttocks. You would also not believe that
most cops I know are the biggest rubber necker’s I have ever met, as in when there is something interesting going on, they all have to get their
nose in there and their face on camera.
Apparently there is no limit to what they consider " a lawful verbal command", If you are a woman confronted by a male officer and he tells you to
strip then lay prostrate on the ground and not make a sound, you best comply (after all you might have had a canceled weapon on you). If you refuse
they have the right to beat you to a pulp until you do. Of course you can try and go after them legally down the road, but by then they should have 50
of their buddies that will back up their story. The minute you speak up and say “no, I am not doing that, call a supervisor, this is
unconstitutional, etc.” you best be ready to have a can’o’whupa$$ put on you simply because you had the sheer audacity to say no to these blue
suited minions of god. If you disagree, you should do a bit more research.
Oh, and believe me they know all the laws, and all the tricks, so down the road the court will favor them. There needs to be limits on what they
consider a Lawful Verbal Command…
Ever wonder why when a cop has to shoot someone, there is usually about 15 bullets in them, this is exactly why, 15 guys get the chance (legally) to
take a shot at someone. I mean after all that firearms training, you should get to at least shoot someone, right?
The guys in plain clothes were FBI Agents according to the CNN video; gee I wonder why they are not up on charges as well? Then what about the US
Ever get the feeling that the government is trying to get us uppity US citizens to accept that we have no constitution and are subject to the same
police state rules used by many third world countries, I wonder why they would wish that?
