Tased for Filming Son’s Traffic Stop

BY Herschel Smith
11 months ago

This depicts absolutely awful interactions between the police and innocent people.  The first cop was bad enough, having stopped the boy for following too closely to his (as he said) “marked car,” as if being marked as a LE car is any different than any other car.

The second cop in the video is a disaster.  He ends up giving conflicting orders to the man, and then not just muzzle flagging him, but unholstering his weapon and pointing it directly at the man while emotionally yelling and screaming.

I think it’s a fair assessment to say that PDs in America are mostly filled with under-educated, overly-emotional, mentally unstable bullies, criminals and sociopaths.  It is incredibly dangerous just to be in the vicinity of cops these days.  “You’re never in more danger than when the police are around, and no situation is so bad that it cannot be made worse by the presence of the police.”  Clearly, at least one of the cops is a danger to society.

Witness this horrible interaction where a family member calls the police because they fear their son was going to commit suicide.  York County, S.C., deputies fired fifty shots at him, hitting with nine (that’s horrible shooting, by the way).  The family should never have called police.  That’s like opening the jail cells and inviting the prisoners to come help you.

Now, watch this video of the sociopath and the father.  Here is the contact page for the Las Animas County Sheriffs Department.

    They’ll be butthurt when there is no invite to the Sarmat rated doomsday bunkers and it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of state minions.

    This is simple thuggery.

    But, I’m sure the Vast Majority would never behave this way! I’m just certain that these two were taken back to the station and given a good wall to wall counseling by members of the Vast Majority, and vigorously encouraged to find another line of work. I’m just sure of it!




    I mean… you know… right? (sheepish shrug of the shoulders)

    Notice the standards of acceptable behavior to police.

    We don’t like it when: insert the behaviors the cops don’t approve of no matter if the behavior is legal. So anything they don’t like.

    You are not a cop: self explanatory.

    Police are almost never changed with crimes unless someone is killed as a result of their illegal activities and then only seldom charged. In this case you have a clear civil rights violation of black letter law and add ADW charges as well but no charges will be forthcoming.

    I have noticed in the last few months I see a lot fewer “Back the Blue” sighs around where I live so maybe the tide is turning.

    Regarding the hiking outing near Idaho Falls. That is the jurisdiction where about a year ago police had a man run from them supposedly armed with a gun. The police tried to find the man by jumping over fences and otherwise entering the backyards of citizens. The police encountered a man in his own backyard who was armed and checking out what the commotion was about. Of course our friends in blue shot and killed him.

    In that case the Police Chief said that he was sad and that the entire department was grieving over the incident. So I guess we should just be happy that the police had the sads for murdering an innocent man.

    Neither dogs nor tasers should be allowed to be used in day to day police work. Both are nothing but torture devices with the dogs also being a “Ignore the 4th Amendment” card.

    Years ago, tasers were sold to the public as a less lethal self defense option. That quickly went by the wayside and now they are “Pain Compliance” (aka torture) devices.

    Even the brutal Roman Empire would not allow it’s citizens to be abused like the cops abuse Americans.

    Acts 22:
    22 And they gave him audience unto this word, and then lifted up their voices, and said, Away with such a fellow from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live.
    23 And as they cried out, and cast off their clothes, and threw dust into the air,
    24 the chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him.
    25 And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?
    26 When the centurion heard that, he went and told the chief captain, saying, Take heed what thou doest: for this man is a Roman.
    27 Then the chief captain came, and said unto him, Tell me, art thou a Roman? He said, Yea.
    28 And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, But I was free born.
    29 Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.

    Sorry but that’s dang good shooting for cops. In the early-mid nineties I spent three years searching the Oregonian every day for police shooting stories in just Portland. Over a thousand shots fired with one in ten hitting.

    Best story of that time was a bank robbery in Indianapolis. A beat cop on the corner hears the alarm go off as the robber exits the bank with a bag of cash in one hand and a gun in the other. The beat cop shoots the bank robber in the leg and the morning paper has a photo of cop, robber, and bag of money. So they ask the cop why he shot the guy once in the leg and he says “This isn’t Portland Oregon where they gun them down in a hail of bullets.”

    Ahh, fun days…

    LE is NOT an ally, as a whole, imo., and interactions are to be avoided or limited at all costs.

    On average, we have a 66% of running into bad or rogue cop, and the rest are pussies for not saying anything for fear of retribution.

    They have no concept of lex talionis, what that actually means.

    LE is the defacto enemy of the people, not to be trusted, or called, as Cpt. advises.

    This is why i have multiple recording devices in auto and on person if i need to record incidents, i can, covertly, or overtly, usually both, and send vid/recordings to a secure cloud account. One party state, so I can do it, and zero expectation of privacy, so there’s that….

    This will kick off, then it will be open season of opfor, just like the Troubles.

    Just like the troubles, all starts w intel, those local politicians/le officers who live and work amongst the population..

    No one will be immune to Squad Rules and associated sporting events.

    I would not want to be wearing a badge, just a shiny focal point….

    SD, I love the “It is just a few bad apples” argument. With the cops not realizing the “bad apples” wear the same uniform as they do. They are in the same gang.

    I ask “If you stop a White guy wearing outlaw biker patches or a black dude with red or blue bandanna in their back pocket, do you wait to see if they are good apples or bad, or do you just do a felony stop and sort things out later?”

    (Yes I do realize that there are as many or move “bad cops” as there are “good cops”. )

    Dialectics… it is what the communists do when they want to attain some sort of goal. Crisis > reaction > synthesis (solution)

    I am in no way condoning inappropriate or worse conduct by the police. That said, sometimes better the devil you know than one you do not.

    The “ban the cops” movement by the Reds (left/Democrats/communists.. it is all the same pot of soup) isn’t per se concerned with justice for minorities or police brutality or any of that other stuff they talk about endlessly. Their real endgame, their actual goal, is to abolish local, county and state law-enforcement of any kind in favor of a national police force.

    You will recall that back in 2007-2008 Comrade Obama talked about a “national police force” as well-armed and equipped as the armed forces. What he meant was a force organized along the lines of the NKVD/KGB, Red Guards, Stasi, Gestapo, etc. – ideologically-committed to the party and its goals, with absolute power of arrest, search, seizure and all of the rest of it.

    The rhetorical and argumentative fig-leaf the state and party will use for such a force being established will be chaos, civil unrest, and violence that they have created and fostered themselves, using such direct-action tools as Antifa, BLM, and so forth.

    The deterioration of policing standards nationwide also serves this end, since that, too, can be used as “evidence” that the present system is in crisis and must be changed. Left unspoken is that the “changes” will be everything wanted not by the people themselves but by an all-powerful state and its patrons.

    There’s even been scuttlebutt about creating an environmental law-enforcement force empowered with vast powers to cite, arrest, detain, confiscate, etc. in the name of “climate change” and other causes de jour of the left.

    @Georgiaboy61: I would argue that “the devil I know” has already arrived at the place you describe. The cops, as far as I can tell, follow the dictates of the FBI and other feds. We know how corrupt the FBI is.

    Some of the January sixth protestors were arrested here in Idaho. Guess who accompanied the feds in making the arrests. In fact from the news accounts at the time the locals were quite proud of doing so. Note that there is no ‘ban the cops” movement in Idaho. So the cops cooperate with the fed dictates all on their own. The communists already have their lapdogs.

    In the fullness of the takeover the millions of military aged men now being imported with the funding and assistance of the U.S. government will be given arms. They will be told that they are impoverished because of white men stealing everything from them. Then the purge will begin. If you attempt to defend yourself and have any success then guess you will come and arrest you for your anti revolutionary behavior. In fact they will be thrilled to do so.

    Talk to some younger cops if you get a chance. Ask them what they worry about as threats. Many of the ones I talk to say ” Right wing malitias” or some word salad meaning the same thing. Now I ask you to believe me when I tell you that we have no such threat vector here. At least not in any kind of volume that could be considered a threat. Those police are being brainwashed into thinking white people who lean right and have guns are their biggest enemy.

    Re: “Now I ask you to believe me when I tell you that we have no such threat vector here. At least not in any kind of volume that could be considered a threat. Those police are being brainwashed into thinking white people who lean right and have guns are their biggest enemy.”

    That’s a pretty bleak assessment you describe, but I certainly have no reason to doubt its veracity. Regarding the brain-washing of the populace, including some young people in the LE field, we see the poisonous fruits of the “long march” of the communists through our society and institutions over the last century.

    Of all of the setbacks and mistakes of the past, the surrender without a fight of the educational establishment – K-12 and colleges/universities alike – to the communists, may have been the most-damaging of all. Children are the future of our society, and if they swing hard to the left because of all of those years of indoctrination by the Reds, guess what happens to society when they come of age? I suspect you already know the answer.

    Trad-Americans lost the culture war, and since virtually everything is down-stream of culture, it ultimately meant that society itself was lost.

    Far as the politics of the “Big Lie” are concerned, the communists must engage in them, for their system does not work, never has worked and never can work. For it runs contrary to the laws of man, the laws of nature, and the laws of God (if you believe in such).

    They have also learned that “go big or go home” works spectacularly when cooking up lies. The bigger and more-ambitious the falsehoods and untruths, the more successful their ‘rape of the mind’ will be. They may be communists, but they’re obviously read or studied Goebbels – since he spoke of the big lie more than eighty years ago.

    Concerning young cops, I live in a small community in rural America, and most of them seem to have their feet solidly on the ground. That does not mean that the problem isn’t there, however, and now you have warned of it, I will be alert to any appearance of bad think.

    The way that the Feds exert control over local police is the same as the way they exert control over other so many other things, namely money. Play ball with the feds, and you can receive all sorts of largess from the Dept. of Defense and Dept. of Homeland Security, and other goodies. Fail to play ball, and the funding spigot is turned off.

    This is the folly of allowing the communists access to the taxpayer’s money; they then use it to bribe or coerce people into doing their bidding.

    John Whitehead has written extensively on this problem, if you want further reading. He’s up on the internet with a website of his own, and also has a number of books out on the militarization of the police, the national security super-state, and so on. He is a lawyer specialized in constitutional law and civil liberties issues, and is affiliated with the Heartland Institute, if memory serves.
