The following video might make you angry. Or it might bring tears to your eyes. A man risks his life rather than surrender to the police state.
Watch the cop. See how casually he holds his gun pointed more or less at the “detainee”. See how the cop casually looks around, walks around, and at times doesn’t even pay close attention to the detainee.
If I were that cop, and I truly thought that detainee posed a threat to me, I would not take my eyes off of him. I would not hold my gun casually in just one hand; I’d have my feet set and I’d be holding that gun solidly in two hands, aimed directly and precisely at the perceived threat.
The fact that the fat pig holds his gun casually and isn’t really focused on the alleged “threat” posed by the detainee indicates that the cop didn’t really believe the suspect was truly threatening. Apparently, the cop gets off by strutting around, waving a gun and scaring people. The cop’s conduct indicates that he’s waving his gun around as a terroristic act intended to intimidate the public rather than to defend himself.
Apparently, the cops didn’t actually shoot the suspect. They succeeded in terrifying him, alright–but they didn’t shoot him. Why not? Perhaps, because the suspect was defending himself with a video camera–and with a measure of courage.
It’s hard to know how much damage videos like the following will do to the police and the police state. One or two idiot cops waved their guns around for no good reason. A man sobbed for freedom. A video recorded their conflict. How many Americans will see the video without losing respect for the police and our growing police state?
Every time one of these videos is posted, the police lose the political support of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of Americans. These videos are waging a war of attrition on public support for the police and the police state. The cops are video’d abusing one or two men, and lose the political support of thousands. It’s asymmetrical warfare. The cops use guns; the people use video cameras. This is a war the cops can’t win.
There’s going to be a strong political backlash against the police state before the A.D. 2016 election.
There’s a good chance that the police state might be stopped and defeated by the video camera and the 1st Amendment right of free speech–and right to freely post videos.
