I'm not picking sides, but to me it's a bit odd this isn't splattered all over the news.
And in that description, there are also some parts that I do find odd:
Tarantino claims that the cop immediately drew his weapon, pulled her from the car, and refused to explain why he pulled her over.
Although abusive cops aren't nothing new, they usually have a reason for their breakdowns or abuses. I find it very weird that a cop would drew his
weapon and be overly aggressive with no reason at all, just for the fun of it.
The cop then placed Tarantino in the back of the squad car, where she allegedly sat for two hours. When backup arrived, Tarantino was strip
searched on the side of the road, where passing motorists could see everything.
1- Is it usual for suspects and people detained to be for such long periods of time waiting?
2- Doesn't backup arrive in a matter of minutes, and not several hours? If the cops were abusive in nature, and were "out to get her", then they
could play the card of her possible aggression. That alone makes backup arrive quickly, and not two hours later.
3- The whole activity at the side of the road just seems plain unrealistic. Cops are very sensitive about being stopped in a road, without having it
closed. A lot of people die because incoming traffic hits whoever is stopped at the side of the road, including cops. I find it odd that several cops
would just stay there for hours, doing several different activities that could put all their lives at risk from an accident.
Doing a search isn't that type of thing that you can just drop and run away from an incoming car.
4- If the passing motorists were passing by, witnessing it all, wouldn't that be a bad thing to the cops? Wouldn't they just "abuse" her at the
police station, instead of taking the risk of getting caught?
Then, in a gruesome twist, a female officer "forcibly removed" a tampon from Tarantino.
Another odd thing, to me.
I was under the impression that when these sort of thing happen, suspects are taken into a hospital for those types of search, or at least a police
station. Not because of witnesses or anything like that, but by pure hygiene safety alone. They didn't knew her, and for a type of profession where
you even ask people if they have anything health-threatening in their pockets, taking out a tampon (how does that happen in a middle of a road?) seems
a bit of a risk to take, even wearing gloves.
Again, I'm not picking sides, not siding with the cops or being against her. If all this is true, then it's a barbaric case of police abuse. But a
lot in this story doesn't make sense to me, and if anyone can clear my doubts, be my guest.
Just don't be so rushy in labeling police officers monsters, when for all we know, she could be making this whole thing up, or exaggerating it.
Aren't police cars all equipped with cameras and other recording devices? All these activities could be easily proven if there was such a recording.
