These people, while rambling on about their private property and rights wasted our tax payer money, plain and simple. Attention hoars.

It was over the top on the folks selling their stuff... bottom line.
They created a scene, where one wasn't needed..
I see no evidence of cops bashing the citizens here, does it happen? yes.. does it disturb me? yes..
Does it mean that I will take every opportunity to say the cops are thugs! Hell no...
They are for the most part, good folks, doing a job, and while there are quite a few that tarnish their reputation, these particular officers should not be included in the group.
They were merely doing their job.
STUFF~!!!!! Like..you know HAVING A GARAGE sale.. !!!!

I have watched this about 5 times. I have came to the conclusion that both sides of this particular video, are equally to blame. Did the law use the standard "lie" of we had a call? They said they did, problem is how does one prove that some one in fact did call the law? Or did they just happen by on patrol & decide to "look see"?
The folks who were filming were really carefull with their words. IMHO, they were looking for a opportunity for a video. It's obvious by the banter between the cop and the lady speaking that he knew who she was, because of her work with this Copblock org. I have found when one looks for a confrontation they normally find it. Hell they could be the ones to have "called the law" after all they were inside, when law arrived, & daughter "seen them coming" and starts filming sounds a little contrived to me.
IMHO, The person filming was waiting for them to arrive. It was contrived for the reasons of the ones who did it. To show their support for Copblock and make themselves look good. I am all for all my rights, but these cops will remember these people, and they will spread the word about these people to all their cop friends.
When seeking a confrontation, one will find it. Some even contrive it. Both sides were wrong, cop has "no right" just grabbing their stuff without consent or warrant. If they have that many airsoft guns in a yard sale. You know the real deal is sitting right in side that house. It all just seems a little to contrived , fake , set-up what ever you want to call it.

You are completely correct. Unless thay had a sign stating " Open to all persons EXCEPT UNIFORMED LAW ENFORCMENT OFFICERS" then those cops could just be shopping early for christmas. It was a set-up, and I would bet bottom dollar , their the ones that called the law....It's folks like this that allready take a serious problem and just make it worse...for all of us.

It doesnt matter whether they did or did not get a call. The way to check is to do a FOIA request with that agency to see if there was a call.
Flawed logic - You can't see who I have in my house. These guns, however, we visible from the street (and not in a house) and the neighbors didn't just think them up, they saw them.

I think you are harboring illegal immigrants in your house. I shall call the cops and you will let them violate your rights.
That's the story you're telling.

If they have nothing to hide, and they are not selling nothing ilegal, why reacting with the polite officers in this stupid and arrogant way?! IMHO Drama Queens making a show off and seeking attention!edit on 6/7/12 by Umbra Sideralis because: Typosedit on 6/7/12 by Umbra Sideralis because: (no reason given)
