In a statement, the police union said “social media has placed a very negative tone on law enforcement nationwide” and that the officer in question was “protecting our community.”

I don't know what the whole statement was but this makes the police look bad, like they don't care about the law they're suppose to enforce.

The remainder of the FOP statement focused on criticizing the woman who recorded the video. It highlighted screenshots of Smith’s Facebook page and accused her of posting photos of herself with men who have handguns.

Because owning a handgun is against the law???

“It seems that no one cares to address this,” Lt. Javier Ortiz, the FOP president, said in the statement. “Social media has focused so much on #blacklifematters/alllifematters campaigns, yet nobody targets the root of the problem our community faces today.”

I think the lack of accountability is a major problem in the government.

Police in urban areas resemble the Mafia more and more; they also seem to do their best to give unions a bad rap.~~~

Yup, if the cops cleaned up amongst themselves this wouldn't be a problem, but since they cover up the nastiest shit from their abusive colleagues, they are all just pieces of shit.

They seem to think that it should carry the same kind of stigma as calling you a child murderer. Apparently if you are a lawful firearm owner, you're seven levels of evil. It has nothing to do with guns being legal and everything to do with how the media portrays people who own them.

Think about it.

When is the last time you saw a television show on which someone who owned a gun and was not a cop was portrayed in a positive light?

Are you serious? Here is just a few examples of popular shows:

Pawn Stars

Duck Dynasty

Sons of Guns

Deadliest Catch

Jessie James

Mythbusters

Additionally here is few political adds featuring guns. It seems to me that every politician must pose with gun at least once in order to be considered seriously. Even presidential candidates are not immune, Ted Cruz cooked bacon with the assault rifle!

"Gun Issue" just like abortion, gay marriage, religion, and many other irrelevant things are just something that our two party system hammers in to our heads 24-7 in order for us to forget about more important stuff like corruption on all government levels, TPPA, NSA, national debt, etc ...

Gotta love how he deflects the problem and puts it on the person who filmed the incident. Sociopath..

Oh guns dont belong in the hands of children and herp derp. WTF does that have to do with an officer allegedly hitting a man in the back of the squad car?

HOW DARE SHE RECORD OUR ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR AND THREATS, LOOK AT ALL THIS COMPLETELY LEGAL STUFF SHE HAS BEEN DOING!

Cops like this really drive home how big of a problem the blue line GANG has become.

Could you at least not throw baseless accusations? He's not a sociopath, dummy. He's just a massive cunt.

Police told her to delete the video or she would be arrested, said Smith, who refused to have her face shown on the ABC station’s camera.

She didn’t delete the video, but instead posted it online, where it quickly went viral and prompted a police investigation.

And the FOP statement doesn't address anything about this - telling her to delete the video or she'll go to jail.. which is a peace officer intentionally telling someone to destroy evidence under duress and threat of punishment.

Can't have civilians recording our officers doing illegal things.

Yeah, if the police can't safely break the law then who can?

Record, record, record. That is the -only- way any of this is going to change. If you see the police doing their job, take 5 minutes out of your day, pull out your phone and record it. Follow police instructions and stay out of the way of them doing their jobs, but record every bit of it. Nearly every time, nothing will happen, but that one time something does happen, you and your video might be the only thing that actually results in justice. Videotaping police in public doing their jobs is not a crime.

Make an account and get the app. This will allow you to live stream the video onto their servers protected by an account and password.

Don't forget, Officer Friendly will try to bully you into deleting the video, will delete it himself, or accidentally step on and crush your phone.

Perhaps the solution is having the entire populace wear body cams if the cops refuse to do so?

Agree, stay out of the way and record everything they do. Then there will be ample evidence of the good and bad being done by the corporate police force.

When you're doing all that recording make sure you hold your phone horizontally to get the video quality that everyone wants to see.

Man fuck these police unions. They need to start taking away their money. That's the only thing that matters to them anyway. Certainly not integrity or ethics.

Police Unions, under some very crappy laws, literally commit treason daily. They exist to encourage officers and their co-workers to deny, lie, and cover-up any wrong doing, and they are very good at it.

Woman targeted by Miami ~~organized crime syndicate~~ for recording officer.

FTFY.

The difference between the police and the gangs is that the gangs mind their own business.
