I learned long ago that if a cop wants to do something he's going to do it.

Whether he's right or wrong doesn't matter- it will happen

The fact that this clown thinks the cops will take his whinging into account proves how pampered he is

As my dad used to say "you may beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride. How rough that ride is, is totally up to you". Of course, this was 30 years ago and things were a lot less shooty back then.

Things are alot more shooty nowadays because people don't adhere to that saying. They think the cop is supposed to listen to everything they say and convince them to comply.

This kid's smug attitude pisses me off. He acts like it's an equal debate and they are just being unfair, then ignores their commands and disobeys when they tell him to keep his mask on. He had a fun ride back to the station.

The police force can get rich off this by fining and penalizing these thugs instead of going after traffic tickets.

It's not the cops, it's the politicians whose careers would be on the line and they only give a shit about cops when it's press time and they need to look good.

The Commie Mayor of Berkeley must have backed down from his supporting Antifa and issued new orders to his minions.

As much as I dislike antifa, I will not cheer on the erosion of liberty. This is the end goal of the people funding antifa.

Laws banning disguises to avoid police at a riot or gatherings where violence is likely has been against the law for DECADES.

The first laws were instituted to combat the Klan and it worked.

Yep, this is exactly their goal. If I rember correctly it was ruled at the federal level that masks are a 1st amendment right protecting freedom of speech.

We keep our rights by defending the assholes that abuse them, even if we disagree with them.

If you let them abuse the law to prosecute your enemies it sets a precedent in the court. From then on it becomes easier for them to abuse you with the new ruling.

Can't be, because dozens of states outlaw then by law. If the supreme court ruled on such a case, the states would have to strike those laws.

Most of these laws were actually made to prevent kkk gatherings

It's illegal in California to wear a mask in order to evade police detection with an intention of committing crimes. Antifags are wearing disguises in an attempt to avoid prosecution for their crimes and should be held to account.

I should not have had to scroll as long as I did to find this sentiment. If we allow the Overton Window to slide to the point where, wearing a mask and not identifying yourself, is a crime according to both sides; then George Soros has won. Our 4th Amendment is dead. We have killed it.

The man in the video was committing no crime other than disobedience to common dress. He was found accused of wrong think. This is a sad day.

Bullshit. It's illegal in California and in many other states to wear masks with an intent to conceal one's identity to avoid identification during criminal activity.

Lots of info packed into that tweet. That first lad to be arrested got hit with a laundry list. I assume part of that is to encourage a plea.

[–] Hydrocephalus 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Yeah, sounds like they hit him with a lot of violations, probably one or two of those charges is a low level misdemeanor, probably the providing false id to a cop. But he'll plea out to something low like having a sign that was too big (what a silly charge btw). Then he'll have to pay a small fine.

That's not going to pass judicial review. But it is consistent with my con law prof's year end lecture: The con law rights you have depend on what the asshole standing in front of you with a gun and a badge says have.

Might be, this would be a pretty good arrest for a lawyer to fight if he didn't do anything beyond refusing to remove his mask.

I'm not too familiar with california laws, but nothing he gpt arrested for sounds too serious. The worst was providing false id to a cop which is probably the only charge that actually rises to the level of criminal (misdemeanor). He'll plea, the prosecutor will offer a reduction to a small violation (civil not criminal) and he'll pay a small fine.

Low value though. I don't know the penalty for a single charge of non-cooperation, but it's probably not much. And it's all right there on video. Cooperate or face sanction. Why?Why?Why? Sanction.

I mean if he wasn't doing anything wrong then there wasn't any reason. I understand not wanting to have your face associated with a movement for safety reasons. At the same time I totally understand why the cops wanted to know who the guy in the mask with the backpack was at a protest...honestly the backpack is a more glaring thing than the mask, who brings a backpack to a protest after Boston?

Regardless this dude should've just asked if he was being arrested and if he was to get a lawyer asap cause they gonna hit him hard.

Masked - intent to cause chaos, crime etc. That's not that much of a stretch. A lawyer is gonna cost him at minimum $2,500 so he's probably not going to get a lawyer and he will be bent over and fucked like a sheep in Afghanistan. Even with the public defender; who probably wont give three shits about him as they have much larger issues to deal with. And if life is any indicator, my estimate of $2,500 is probably more like $10,000 in reality.

Is Berkeley not a school? Where else would a backpack be more appropriate?

Looks like Auburn PD shamed Berkeley UC Berkeley PD into actually doing their job.

Edit: Berkeley PD is probably still hiding in their squad cars or plotting to put on masks and join AntiFa in breaking stuff and beating people up again later tonight.

The anti-mask ordinances were pushed through decades ago because of the klan. But yeah, laws are frequently passed by using unpopular members of society as scapegoats.

They will probably just let him go with a misdemeanor. Keep in mind cops can arrest you for no reason and hold you for 48 hrs because they want to.

[–] Hydrocephalus 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

The providing false id will be a misdemeanor, they will let him go, he'll plea to a minor violation and pay a small fine. I'm pretty sure the left has lawyers ready to defend protesters at all major events. Although this could easily be handled by a public defender, it's a pretty common thing for prosecutors to reduce charges drastically in exchange for a plea, saves everyone time.

Their intention was not to suspend a crime, it was to get his name on file, they arrested him for not providing identification.
This has happened to me, I was never charged, because I never broke the law but I wasn't let out of the cells until I provided identification.

[–] go1dfish 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I may be wrong, but I don't believe you are required to provide identification to an officer until you are detained, so there would have to be some reason to detain him in the first place.
