Man arrested while taking out trash - Police arrest him because? Well the usual

This is chilling.
The LAPD fought to not have the video released because "it would have a chilling effect on future investigations".

How about stop harassing and arresting black people ? That's the chilling effect of all this.

4. Civil sanctions for sure

and a possible indictment for official misconduct and kidnapping. Taking someone into custody by force is an indictable offense. The police will be fired, and the victims will likely get a generous settlement.

5. This is why everyone should be concerned about police misconduct. Even if you are a racist Ahole

This should bother you. Police budgets are bloated enough. But the fact that their misconduct results in civil lawsuits that taxpayers end up footing the bill for, should outrage everyone.

Think of all the ways that this money could be used in different cities. Its just outrageous. Citizens everywhere should be demanding that police stop this behavior, if for no other reason than a monetary reason. I am not faulting victims for suing. But in what other profession, can you cost your employers huge damages and you are able to continue in this job.AND, sweeping overhaul to prevent future occurrences does not take place?

8. In states that legalized cannabis

police funding for prosecuting cannabis cases has to take a hit. De facto defunding and for just cause. Unfortunately our resources will be squandered because we are a nation of uniform worshipers, unconsciously living in fear of those who wear uniforms and pack heat.

I always look up and down the street for police cars. Oh, wait...I don't do that. Ever.

More white male privilege, I suppose.

WTAF?

13. If the cops want to arrest you, they will arrest you no matter what you do or say.

Let them arrest you. Don't answer any questions except your name and address. They must tell you why they are arresting you and tell you your rights. Refuse to talk to them until you have your lawyer present. If they do not tell you why you are under arrest nor tell you your rights tell your lawyer. Do not sign any papers.

You should always carry a criminal lawyer's card with you. Our lawyers are on our contact list on our cell phones.

31. At least in California...of all places.

No. Some law about not "endorsing bail companies and lawyers". You could ask for a phone book...they won't give you one. Railroad your ass straight to the public defender who will likely tell you take the plea. Make sure you get your business cards out of your wallet before they secure that and your phone. Once you lose that, you're fucked.

16. not surprising

in the current racial climate of America. The prior person to occupy 1600 unleashed the mean, mean animosity that has always, periodically, bubbled over in the American cultural/racial crockpot that makes up this stew we reside in. Americans have 2 choices embrace the mentality of authority agents as represented here or with ever-growing numbers of loud voice, register resentment condemning this Slavery Era/ segregationist mentality.

Tear not the quilt asunder. Humpty dumpty style...:tsk Its up to all of us Hopefully, still living in America.

I guess there is no sense in arresting a white male when there are still black males running free.

20. Massive demilitarization, and impose a top to bottom

culture change in police and sheriff's departments throughout the US. Defang the police unions so they do what unions are supposed to do, but cannot put bad cops back on the street. Civilian oversight. Community policing.

Just a whole stem-to-stern culture change.

is to even educate people about racism.
