The address on his ID was the address he was at? Are you kidding me?
Once the police saw his ID the cops should have left.
Except for that part where he was trying to force a perimeter entryway. Even demonstrated it for the police to "see if his dog was in there".
How about if the dog belongs to you then you have a key to the house. Or just knock on the garage door and the dog runs over and barks and recognizes your voice. The guy's story is bogus. Police know it.
The guy on the porch very obviously is not telling the whole truth. He sounds like one of the people that ask for change at the gas station so they can get a taxi ride to go visit their mother in the hospital. The guy sounds like he is just totally spinning a tale.
EXACTLY! The guy is spinning a tale step by step. The police can sense it. Anybody who doesn't understand this video is just plain refusing to accept reality.
Sounds like mom didn't want her ex-prison son hanging around. He has left home either by choice or because she kicked him out.
The guy's story is bogus. Police know it.
The guy was a goofball. End of story. My posting here is done.

Note New Thread Title:
"Robber Almost Fools the Cops, and Fooled Nearly Everyone at ATS."
An ex-con pretending to be waiting for his mother to come home tried to break in, for the third time, to his mother's house. But a call from a suspicious, and possibly astute neighbor alerted police to his presence. When police arrived he almost fooled them into believing he was supposed to be there. Almost. An altercation ensued and police detained him, only later to discover who he really was.
The story was posted to a popular website named ATS, and elicited scathing remarks from members who pulled no punches in immediately blaming the cops involved for excessive and improper use of force. Because that's what it really did appear to be. But as it turns out the cops were right all along to question and pursue this man when inconsistencies surfaced in his story; he had broken into his mother's house more than once before.
To this very day, drive by posters, so eager to bash the police they don't read the thread at all, still jump in with comments that clearly show they haven't read the thread yet and realized that the police in this case were absolutely correct in nabbing the robber. Disagreements persist as to whether the cops used excessive force or not...
It appears ATS got bamboozled.

The City of Greensbora has released bodycam video showing a police officer punch and arrest a man who was sitting on his front porch. Dejuan Yourse was waiting for his mother to come home at the time before he was approached by police. Officer Travice Cole and Charlotte Jackson were responding to a call of an attempted break-in. They begin a civil discussion with Dejuan, but the situation quickly escalates after Officer Cole grabs the man's phone before hitting and tackling him to the ground.
Two police investigations were launched into the incident, one criminal and one internal. Both officers resigned mid-investigation, however Mr. Yourse's family is calling for further repercussions. The police department has since determined that Officer Travice Cole violated the department's use of force policy, courtesy towards the public policy, arrest policy, search and seizure policy, and general compliance to laws and regulations. The investigation into the other officer's actions is still ongoing. The family is likely to sue for damages.
This situation illustrates some of the extreme complexities of being a cop, and more. Was the cop in his right at that point to grab the phone- because the dude could have been calling for assistance? If so, then why instead didn't the cop just tell him not to call anyone but his mother?
So then the dude resists, because the cop was taking his property, and the cop then tackles him and punches him in the eye for resisting.
I CHALLENGE EVERYONE TO TALK ABOUT THIS CASE WITHOUT MENTIONING RACE, AT ALL. Betcha can't. Who will be the first drive by poster to ruin it? ....

People are so quick to post and comment with their bias. Learn the difference between a hunch, reasonable suspicion, and probably cause.
