It seems that every time I decide to stop posting about the things that cops do because I don’t want to be a blog that does nothing but bitch about cops, they go and screw up again. This time, a cop in his police cruiser was caught on camera blowing a red light, then swerved across two lanes of traffic before plowing into a bar. The cop claims that he swerved to avoid a dog, then changed the story to a parked car, then changed the story again to say he was changing the channel on his police radio.
The cops then arrested one of the owners of the bar, claiming that he committed Felony Battery on a LEO before reducing the charges to misdemeanor battery. What did he do? Well, it turns out that there is video of the bar owner arriving on the scene and an officer approaching the bar owner and asking him if he’s the owner, to which the man responds affirmatively.
The officer asked to see the bar owner’s ID, prompting the owner to say, “Why should I show my ID? I didn’t do anything wrong.”
He said it loudly, because he’s not happy, so an officer responds with, “You don’t get to yell at me. You’re under arrest for disturbing the peace,” and then, when bystanders repeatedly asked the officer why the man was he arrested, he said, ‘Nobody gets to yell at me.'”
So let’s see how the police protect one of their bad apples.
