Nice viral video for a rap trio!

The fake-cop wasn't terribly convincing. I can't imagine a real gangsta being intimidated by him. Hell - I can't imagine a real Hamster being intimidated by him.

Thats a big one, right there. Do they just assume that your parents, if you have any, taught you or that you learned from TV?

...and they also say ignorance of the law is not a legitimate defense.

So basically we are being set up from the beginning by the system in the left-wing indoctrination centers that some call public schools.

This was not planned or staged. I know a lot of pissed off people in Fayetteville right now. This was a big mess up on someone’s part, I only pray no one retaliates because of this.

I hope for true justice, not a slap on the wrist and paid leave.

I agree this is pretty ridiculous. The police officer in this case was out of line. He was wrong and was too proud to end te situation. I was so offended by this absurd use of police force that I emailed the mayor of that city lastnight asking what he was going to do to rectify the situation. I encourage anyone else offended to do the same. Oh yea and the dude on the first page who claimed this dude probably has a rap sheet, good job at being racist.

Your post is all Gibberish. Care to elaborate a little more?


Actually the post is quite clear, it makes perfect sense to me. I know you wrote in your post that you're "NOT stupid" but if you can't understand ReAwakeneds post, I really have to question the legitimacy of that statement. Thing is I think you did understand it, you just don't have any reasonable response to the people calling you out on your BS.

So there's NOT more too it than that. You must not see how this appears in video to be racially profiled.

This incident reminds me of another similar incident:



For all we know that rifle could have been a stealth container for liquid codeine. To make matters he was verbally combative with the cops, who he should have bowed before and thanked for doing their job. Right?

Video 1.) Black guy drinking tea in a parking lot.

Video 2.) White guy walking down the street with an assault rifle strapped to his chest.

I'm not seeing the similarities! lol

The unbelievable thing is... the white guy was being verbally abusive & a tad bit aggressive ...

But the tea drinker gets slammed to the ground....

No they do not assume anything. They prefer the term “Presume” or “Presumption of Law”

For example, “I presume your parents taught you the law.”

Here is the fallacy of this in the definition of the word:
pre•sume
/priˈzo͞om/
Verb
1.Suppose that something is the case on the basis of probability: "I presumed that the man had been escorted from the building".
2.Take for granted that something exists or is the case.
3.To suppose to be true without proof.

Synonyms
suppose - assume - guess - conjecture - imagine - surmise

If my parents were not taught the law in its entirety, then how can they pass on that which they do not know?

I have had a judge tell me those exact words “ignorance of the law is no excuse.”

We are only ignorant because that is how they want us!!!

If we were all on point, then the cash cow that is the judicial system would cease to exist.

While I agree with what you wrote, you still fall victim to the system because you place blame on a certain side. Left-Right Right-Left. Flip a coin to see if it lands on Heads or Tails; do this multiple times and guess what? They are still both a part of the same coin!

To blame one you must blame the other for they are one and the same.

In court if you cannot afford an attorney, they will appoint one for you. But do you want this court appointed attorney who is buddies with the DA representing you? I hope not. These are the same people who are supposed to be protecting your rights yet the only thing they want you to do is cop a plea bargain. Later that day Public Pretender and DA go knock down some drinks and play a round of golf. SMH!

Two different sides of the same coin!

It is not a marketing hoax. It was a real arrest, with real charges. The man was charged with trespassing and resisting a public officer, and his court date is 06/06/2013

This is quite possibly the realest thing I have read in this whole thread in terms of what we can do about this if you do not live in Fayetteville


I encourage everyone else to do the same if you have any sort of feelings about how this was conducted.

Thank you for that Etombo

My ass, why would anyone let any officer of any type check what is in their tea. This scum bag is exactly why people HATE cops. People are tired of these racist storm troopers stomping heads for no reason. This punk cop is on borrowed time.

Actually, the majority have the ability to document at their fingertips. Who are you to ask why he was filming his friend drinking a tea? THAT is his right. Just as it is the victim has the right to peacefully assemble. He had no right to make him leave because the man quite obviously wasnt doing anything.

This is the best example ive ever seen about just throwing your oath out the window. And whether or not the man had alcohol in his can is irrelevant. the cop clearly was not sporting xray alcohol identification glasses and clearly was not sporting a peaceful mindset coming into the situation. The aggression was uncalled for. Simply no reason for such aggression. The color of his skin is irrelevant. Leave the racism and profiling where it is, which is with the plain clothes cop. Dont feed on that. The man is a man is a man, and i dont care what race he is. All out breach of his amendment rights, and complete negligence from the cop.

IMO, the cop mighta had a bad day and this made him feel better...seriously, certain people are evil as heck with powers of authority like that.

Here is a copy of what I sent to the Mayor of Fayetteville. I have not received any response.



"I just watched a video of one of your police completely abusing his discretion. Harassing someone who was drinking an Arizona Half & Half Iced Tea. I am sure you already know what I am talking about. At this moment I intend to share this video with everyone I know in an effort to boycott your city. I have never been there and at this point I never intend to visit. People make mistakes, even police. If this police officer could not recognize that fact and admit his fault he does not deserve the honor of serving your citizens. I would expect in the least that this officer he put on leave while this is investigated and publicly apologize. I make it a point every day to seek out something good someone has done and recognize them for that, your police officer had inspired me to recognize something terrible. That may not mean much to you but it has left a lasting impression on me about the way your city operates and treats it citizens. I hope that the police officer can learn from this and become a better person, and I hope you being an even better person relieve him of his duties if he does recognize his error. I hope to see news in the future about your efforts to remedy this situation and not risk the adverse media exposure. Try to realize this is an opportunity to show your ability to recognize and resolve an issue. Best of luck - a concerned citizen.

Why should citizens allow some thug cop or security guard drop nose hairs into a drink to prove innocence? Cops are supposed to have " reasonable suspicion " before engaging us in public and starting trouble. That means "..an ARTICULABLE set of circumstances that would lead an average person to believe that a crime has been committed ". We are under NO obligation to prove our innocence, the cops have the burden or proving why they believe that the man is drinking alcohol. If the man was intoxicated and staggering, or smelled strongly of alcohol, then it might be reasonable to approach him and ask if he had alcohol in the container. Barring that, the man had the right to be left alone.

Offering some moron your drink to sniff is not smart, as contagious diseases could be transferred from close facial contact with a beverage, and under no circumstances should we accustom ourselves to proving our innocence...that puts the cops in the superior position, which their ego's love but which demeans us all. Lawsuits for damages are the only way to stop these busybody wannabe's from harrassing us.

At what point do you think the video should have started so that it wouldn't be "partial"? The video could have started an hour before and you could still say, "Well, the guy was probably doing something wrong five minutes before that." If the guy was trespassing, why didn't the cop just come up and tell him to leave in the first place?

I can't imagine where you think they would get a REAL police car!

Also: Are there FAKE hamsters?

Btw, he is not seeking re-election, hope he has some legacy to salvage, if not we can count him out in doing anything. I am surprised no mainstream media has picked this up. May be we should email it out to speed up this Mayor's resolve.

You don't always have to provide your identification to an officer. If I perform a consensual stop you don't have to even listen to me let alone provide your identification. If I conduct a legal traffic stop on you then yes of course you have to provide your ID.



Says the cop!

You have obviously never been on the other side of the question! I have been asked for ID many times without being in a vehicle.

Put yourself in our “the citizens” shoes. If you try to speak up, be prepared for a fight. History shows me that police do not like citizens that evoke their rights!

Just bow down and lick the boots as they say and you will soon be on your way or off to jail


As for recording people, why in a court room can they keep record of everything, yet you are not allowed to record what is happening to you in the court for your own record and protection?

More one way rules, somehow I am not surprised.

Do you object to citizens recording your every action?

(This was bothering me so I addressed it!)
