CaP? Is that you?
this department has problems.
CaP? Is that you?
I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.
If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?
There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
You must now proceed to Federal Court and seek redress for being falsely arrested and having your constitutional rights violated.
Please enjoy your new found wealth.
Keep up the good work.
WOW, this shay guy shouldn't be a cop. He is an idiot and I really hope he gets fired for the sake of all American Citizens.
BTW, I wouldn't call his demand "gutsy." I'd call it "goading."
My hearing is not good, and neither is the audio. I can't tell if the cop ordered the person to stay behind the telephone poll. But, if the cop did give that order, the best that the arrestee can expect is to beat the charge. I don't see him winning any lawsuit. He has a shot if the cop lied about the order.
However, clearly these two were looking to make trouble, "embodying" if you will.
I can imagine these two geniuses hatching the following plan at the zoo:
"OK, you walk through the bear enclosure. If he leaves you alone, I'll approach him and engage him in a provocative way. If he smacks me with his big, meaty, claw-filled paw, we'll sue the zoo and the bear."

Bears aren't human beings who are government officials who must obey the constitution and protect citizens rights to free press.
My sources tell me that the arrested individual and their attorney are happy.
the individual who was arrested by hawthorne police on two occasions now is looking at receving about $200,000 plus attorney fees.....compliments of the tax payers.
the police don't pay, the mayor doesn't pay, the city council doesn't pay, the city attorney doesn't pay.
wouldn't it be nice if you could get a speeding ticket and make someone else pay for it ?
wouldn't it be nice if you got sentenced to 90 days in jail and you could make someone else do the time ?
welcome to qualified immunity and indemnification.
"looking at receiving"???
"Is suing for and hopes (beyond hope) to get" is more like it.
So, onus, did the officer tell you to stay behind the pole or not?
Keep in mind that in places like Ohio and Chicago, police are NOT indemnified for punitive damages. That's why Chicago settles so MANY cases out of court. If they didn't, there'd be a lot of cops living under bridges there. That's what happened to Detective Alvin Weems. He was on the hook for some portion of $3,000,000 for murdering Michael Pleasance on video and lying about it. He ate his gun.

Tuesday’s arrest marks the sixth time he has been arrested for video recording cops, not that they ever charge him with that because there is no law in the books forbidding this.
They usually charge him with Penal Code Section 148, resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer, which is California’s go-to contempt of cop charge.

"Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties."
"Some time ago, a bunch of lefties defied the law by dancing at the Jefferson Memorial, resulting in their arrests. Last week, a bunch of them pulled the same stunt and - using patented Lefist techniques - provoked the Park Police into having to use force to arrest them."
This guy that keeps getting arrested has a good style, but he has to sharpen it up. Seriously, don't go around looking for cops to bully, which I think he did in this case.
I saw a video where the same guy was harassed by cops for STANDING near a refinery in El Segundo. What if he had been taking pics like the cops allege? Ever hear of Google Earth? Go rent an airplane and fly around the area and get far better pics. In that case the cops were out of line, and he was telling the cops to F off. I like that style, and in that case justified. In this one, the OP's link, he's goading them.
Even the tamest of pets will bite if you push it far enough.
I myself prefer to be polite and resolve the matter peacefully.

Registering gun owners to prevent crime, is like registering Jews to prevent a HOLOCAUST.
I am not a lawyer in real life, or in play life. So anything I say is for debate and discussion only.
