Police move to suppress surveillance video of them insulting a disabled woman

hree police officers in Santa Ana, California, have taken legal action in an attempt to block the use of surveillance video reportedly showing them snacking on marijuana-laced edibles and making derogatory comments about a disabled woman during a raid on a marijuana dispensary, the Orange County Register reported. The unidentified officers, along with their union, the Santa Ana Police Officers Association, filed a lawsuit last week to prevent the department's internal affairs investigators from using the video in their investigation of the May 26 raid of the Sky High Collective dispensary.

The footage reportedly shows the officers trying to disable all of the cameras in the Sky High Collective facility, after which some played darts and ate what was believed to be edible products containing marijuana. Another officer was captured in the video insulting a customer. "I was going to punch her in the f---ing nub," she said, the Huffington Post reported.

I don't think they'll have much luck keeping this video under wraps.

1. This country's cops should all be shipped to

 

as many deserted islands as it takes to accommodate them and marooned with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. As for what happens afterwards, who gives a flying fuck?

2. It's probably not the first time this bunch has acted like thugs.

Maybe one cop goes bad maybe its just an outlier, but when three of them go rogue and they feel comfortable enough work together as a criminal gang without fear of the law ever touching them, then that whole police department becomes suspect.
