The veil is slowly being pulled back on the abusive police problem that's been around since, I don't know, the beginning.

You know this guy has talked to tons of people that way.

That's what happens when people start taping everything I guess, keeping dash cams to protect themselves and what not.

I bought a dash cam to make sure there as no confusion in an accident and any run ins with a police officer. Thankfully I have not had to have a need for it... yet. I ended up getting the Falcon Zero for its reviews and price range.

Also it is increasing in severity because of military hardware being given to police by the government in order to support the military-industrial complex and in turn the US economy.

These private military companies in the US would also love to seize the profit opportunity of privatizing the police. The easiest way to accomplish that would be to federalize the police who would then give out private contracts, and the easiest way to do that is to make the police be/look so out of control that people will be begging for federalization, just as Mexico federalized their police 6 months ago.

There's a lot of wrongdoing by the police of course, but there's also a reason the media suddenly reports on it constantly, and it isn't just because there's cell phone videos now. IMO there is an active move to destabilize the US police so they can be privatized for profit. Just something to think about.

I heard that all this crap started when George W. Bush enacted some measure that said US police are not here to "serve and protect" the civilians. He didn't give me a source but if someone can track that down before me (I'm at work), that would be pretty awesome. I'd like to know how far back all of this really goes.

I live near Detroit. If a dude jumped out of an SUV yelling "I'll put a fucking bullet though your head." I sure as shit would hit the gas. What in the hell was the cop thinking? Cops are the first one to tell you to immediately get out of there if someone is acting aggressively and threatening to shoot.

How does making a wrong turn warrant this level of response?

I probably would've shot him and then been sending the dash cam video to my attorney.

That incident reminds me of the "undercover cop" who was apart of a motorcycle hate mob and busted in a poor family's SUV window and helped beat the crap out of the father in front of his wife and toddler.

http://blog.angryasianman.com/2015/06/undercover-cop-found-guilty-in.html

The defendants chose to have the judge, Maxwell Wiley, decide their cases rather than a jury. On Tuesday morning, after a three-week trial, Justice Wiley found the detective, Wojciech Braszczok, 34, guilty of second-degree assault, coercion, riot and criminal mischief. But he rejected the most serious charges, gang assault and first-degree assault, saying the prosecution had not proved the detective shared the intent of the other attackers to hurt the victim.

That's right, even when justice is done. Being a cop automatically places the burden of proof higher. You can be doing the exact same thing as a mob of criminals, but because you're a cop they have to prove you weren't some magical undercover hero trying to save the day by beating a father in front of his child.

Why does intent seem to only matter when it's a cop? Am I cherry-picking here?

[edit] ALSO,

The other defendant who was on trial, Robert Sims, 36, an electrician, was convicted of attempted gang assault, second-degree assault, coercion, riot and criminal possession of a weapon.

The other guy IN THE SAME TRIAL was convicted based on the same evidence.

I should go through Police Academy for my get-out-of-jail-free card.

I once, lost, turned the wrong way down a one-way at 6am on a Tuesday. There was not a car in sight, but a car ~200 yards behind me slammed on the brakes, spun around, and before I could turn myself around the guy was yelling out the window asking me if I was lost.

Not understanding his context, I said no, was just trying to figure out my commute (it was my first day at at new job). He called me a smart ass, told me he was an off duty cop, and told me to "get the fuck out of here." When I told him to have a nice day (sarcastically, the guy was being a dick), he threatened to take my car, beat the shit out of me, and have me arrested.

Every single other interaction I've had with a cop in this city has been positive. I'm not really sure what that guy's problem was.

Pure motherfucking hubris. I hope the cop loses his job and his fucking pension. The past year has been pretty enlightening as far as American police encounters go. Anyone seeing this shit who doesn't think we need to have a national conversation about how we as a society consent to being detained, arrested, sentenced and incarcerated needs to take a serious look at their own pro police state bias.

One can hope but for various reasons almost nothing happens to people like this. At most the "punishment" will be mandatory paid vacation then he/she resigns and gets away scott free.

Don't forget 100% lack of consequences for committing crimes.

At this point, any cop in the US could go on live national TV, slaughter his way through an Olympic sized pool of babies and puppies, and the response would be "Well, those babies/puppies must have jaywalked, or something, which means they deserved it." or "They obviously reached for their Huggies waistbands! The noble hero officer feared for his life!"

This type of crazy is not taught in the academy. I'm a police supervisor and if one of my guys did this, I would immediately pull him off the street, send him for a mental health eval and refer the case to Internal Affairs. This guy is obviously a burn out.

They require that you already are that violent and crazy before you can become a cop.

He's smiling as he tries to provoke a reaction from the guy with the camera phone that would let him get violent.

That is so many shades of fucked up I can't even begin to list them all, and behavior from someone who has serious violence problems.

Way too fucking confident in the face of being recorded. That's a guy who knows shit isn't happening to him, although I think he did a bit of a doubletake when this guy in the post said he's got a dash cam.

Black Box G1W, it went on sale for around $40 and with a 32GB (class 4, this cam doesn't like class 10) it was under $50. It's very cheap hardware and the instructions are and interface is typical Chinese translation.

These are some screen shots from a video this morning of a guy fucking up a merge in front of me.

The suction cup already fell off the windshield once but I'm sure I can work something out. It's what I expected for the price.

[–] sofakyji 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago  (edited ago)

you can find cheaper ones but spend a little more for Car Dash Camera with chipset " Ambarella A7LA70". Just google it. I bought one for $100+ and the video clarity is very good. Ebay or Amazon should have them

Edit: Not Certain but I think these are/were the same chipsets that are in the GoPro camera.

Do they make dashcams that are capable of filtering out embarrassing singing, talking to onesself, or growled insults that are so vitriolic it'd make a truck driver blush? If so, then I'm finally ready to get one.

The one I have, Black Box G1W, you can set to record audio or not. It's important in areas where recording audio may be illegal.
