Dirty cop is dirty.
Disarm cops for a Safer America.
This guy needs to edit all your vids Cop Block.
Great. Another / fresh chance to views the lies of a clearly talented video editor.
Let it the stupid start…. and go…
t, how do you know that cop is a video editor?
Drug dogs lie. Cops lie. t supports the cover up.
Cue JQP and Common Sense to join the chorus.
What cover up? This videos producer is damned by his own video. He claims the officer does things on video that are clearly not in evidence. His little “control video” doesn’t show what hesays it does. In the other recent posts about the officers testimony this videos producer has apparently even adandoned what he claims in this video for a new ttact of claimed wrong doing. I don’t know this officer, nor have I ever worked as a k-9 handler. My problem with this video is the heavy editing. When watched with the sound off (cutting of the narration) you don’t see anything wrong. If you listen to his BS narration, he tells you things that aren’t there. I couldn’t really care less either way. But if this site is truly about police accountabilityand filming the “wrongs” the police do….videos like this should be blocked. What is presented here, is simply not the truth and sshouldn’t be trusted. But you are absolutely drinking it in, buying exactly what you are being sold.
“I couldn’t really care less either way.”
That’s a damn lie. My only problem with this video is the idea that humans are suspect just for being suspect and that means the 4th is tossed out.
I think what you’re seeing here is the truth, but you are so heavily skewed and invested in the lie that you cannot move in the direction of what’s right anymore.
What truth? Watch the video guy. The author LIES. No other way to cut it. His claims that the video shows the officer creating a false alert…by doing the exact same thing that is seen in his control video…where he says the handler and dog do it right…are the exact same things. And you are lead by the nose right to it. Take a deep smell of his BS if you’d like. Anyone not biased (such as yourself) can see this for what it is.
T, the officer in the video isn’t doing the same thing as his example of proper k-9 handling. He is getting the dog excited to ‘find the dope’. This is shown in a later example video of an intentional false positive where the handler excites the dog and repeatedly tells them to search the same spot, and the dog signals despite there being no drugs present.
Not that we know the dog actually signaled – it was conveniently at the front of the car where no one could see, including the dash cam. WHich is weird since the ‘marijuana shake’ wasn’t at the front of the vehicle and the dog sniffed the doors and would have signaled there if it were to signal to that.
It’s like going to your window and telling your dog “Get him, boy, get him!” Your dog rushes to the window and starts barking and flipping out, even if there’s no one outside, because you have prompted him to.
But aside from that, the cop clearly fabricated the reason for pulling them over. He no doubt profiled them based on their out of state plates and junky automobile. When he didn’t get consent to search the vehicle, even after making up crap about the passenger and drive being nervous and apprehensive, he just made something up to get PC to search.
I watched the video, which I hate doing, so I could check this out for myself. I was paying attention to what the officer said while keeping in mind that the narration is possibly biased. Traffic stop because of weaving…check. License, registration and insurance…check. Telling you your passenger seems nervous and we want to talk to him…huh? Ask the passenger if he agrees the the officer on the drivers ability to maintain his lane…huh? Then the officer informs the driver about drug and gun trafficking problems in the area…ok? Then asks do you own this car, do you own everything in this car, do you have cocaine, heroin, guns, large amounts of US currency…what? Then, after the driver says he just wants to leave the officer gives the reason that ‘the passenger seems nervous’ as the reason to use his dog to search for drugs.
Then lots of ‘Either you comply with my K-9 search or I’ll do what I need to do.’ from the officer…which means what??
I’m not going into the questionable use of trained K-9 searching for drugs or the officers reputation.
That stretch of road may be well known drug corridor.
I might be wrong, but the TL;DR narrative seems to be ‘Police officer saw out a car with of state plates and bet it might be carrying drugs. Pulled it over for…whatever…and went through a few sloppy dialogs and a K9 search. His bet didn’t pay off so he made up some stuff and left the civilian with some kind of ticket.
Let me know if I am wrong.
Last part should read ‘out of state plates’ :)
Good words, Silvestri.
The cop fluffers just hate video cameras.
Disarm cops for a safer America.
All cops lie, all the time.
@silvestri: Go back to the very beginning of the video. Don’t you think it’s odd that author guy took a picture of this officer, and another, as he sat in the median of the highway? Wonder why that might be. Highway interdiction , when done correctly is very accurate. Interdiction is assembling various clues, behaviors that come together. Its not exact science. The reason I pointed to the photo of the officers at the beginning. Now, if you were that officer sitting on an interdiction unit. And as your watching drivers going by looking for suspicious behavior…and there goes some dude taking your picture. Not illegal, but odd, certainly. So it peaks your interest and everything else plays out. As for the questions and interview tactics, not my style, but not necessarily wrong either.
Again, i,’m not defending him. I’m just saying that what the narrator is saying happened….didn’t . And when taken in total with his new video about the officers testimony and how he appears to now have abandoned his own concept that the officers behavior and the dogs alert was “false”.
Look at the total of what this author is trying to do. He is just like a low rent defense attorney…throwing anything at the target hoping something will stick, the concept of if there is enough smoke the truth won’t be seen.
And again, I don’t care. But untruthful hacthet job videos like this and so many other edited videos posted here and elsewhere don’t help anyone. If the officers actions were / are so wrong, they speak for themselves. But what happens so frequently is that when viewed without being told what to see, you don’t see any wrong.
The photo of the police cars is from Google maps streetview and were sitting in the same spot as the officer in the video. We also have a case in federal court against this officer. Contact my attorneys and argue the merit if you like T. Meanwhile checkout Illinois’s operation Valkerie and Operation Pipeline to see the framework for this officers behavior.
Mr Huff, as I leave and breathe. Nice that you admit the your video is a heavily edited farce.
For someone who says you don’t care, T, you are hell bent on getting the last word.
And now a last word from T:
T, by using the phrase “heavily edited farce” are you comparing the video to 99% of police reports that are filed?
“And when taken in total with his new video about the officers testimony and how he appears to now have abandoned his own concept that the officers behavior and the dogs alert was “false”. ”
You are right,T, putting this video with the newest facts we know about how this government employee operates, his concept about the officers behavior and the dog’s alert was false. The truth is even worse. This government employee is not just lying, like Mr. Huff said he was, he is manufacturing fake evidence for the purpose of violating Mr. Huff’s and every other citizen’s basic human rights. Sounds like he should be facing Federal Charges and spend some time in “No Parole” Federal prison.
Hey T, I have the balls to post under my real name. Do you have the guts to use your real name?
Until a dog is able to be cross examined on a witness stand, no dog’s actions should be used for the basis of any search.
@chris: Cut a notch in the wall. In your 11:26 comment you agree with me and admit that the claims that the dog falsely alert is a lie. Good. But the. You buy into the huge conspiracy that some officer in some other jurisdiction smeared dope on this guys bumper, then co tacted this officer with a vehicle description and tag number, knowi g that he would be driving down the specific highway, back home from the Star Trek convention, just so be could stop him. Hmmm. Frightening that you really buy into the idea. And you think of yourself as clever. Hmmm.
T = epic troll. Gratz
Terrance, hahahaha! Someone outs you and you go with the typical “troll” response. Tell us how your case goes.
Chris Mallory lies, all the time.
Disarm Chris Mallory for a Safer America.
I can’t believe how composed he stayed when dealing with those evil thugs. This guy looks like Truman Capote. So instead of Breakfast at Tiffanys, he had to have breakfast with thugs. Phillip Seymour Hoffman should play this guy when all of this cop thuggary finally makes it onto the big screen with all the told and true stories.
@Gina: you’re right. The officer was calm while dealing with those thugs.
Run to the nearest mental health facility, “T” and take your thug cop buddies with you, as your sarcasm on such a matter obviously shows not only your character, but you’re some nut.
Gina: Come on. If you can’t see through this pile oh crap. A pot head got stopped and the k-9 alerted on his car. There isn’t anything more here than that.
Federal Court rules in our favor. Our second viral hit “Lodging in Collinsville” to remain on the web. See motions & ruling here: http://tminus321.com/TrainingDay/
I’m glad you get to keep your post(s) up. Hope the city takes a copy of it into the trial.
Every time you hear the cop say “…if this dog alerts…” insert “…when this dog alerts…” and you’ll see clearly his intentions.
When then “T” if he is some “pothead” he’s welcome to join us in Colorado where it’s now legal! Oh what, oh what will the cops do with their time now? I know! Get away with murder and child rape and continue to deal meth and get out with a few months in a jail named after them and refuse drug tests and have young men continue to be victimized. And since it’s all in Arapahoe County Judge Sylvestor’s court, where the theater shooter murder case is as well, Sullivan is all safe since it’s his buddy sitting on the bench. Wake up. I know IIIII did after what I’ve seen firsthand.
Gina: Ahoy, what ? Dang if you ain’t got you some good smoke.
I don’t put anything in my lungs, but that’s up to others to make their choice. Is it worse than someone like you who downs martinis at lunch and a couple of whiskey sours when you get home? And google Sheriff Patrick Sullivan if you’re in such denial.
I’d like to know about the process to get the video from the cops. Can you elaborate?
Clearly “T” has a vested interest in this case. And if Reichert were to comment on this case he sound just like “T”.
As “T” once again stresses he doesn’t care about this video.
Police videos and reports are paid for with tax dollars therefore they are public records. Google “Freedom of Information Act request” along with the state where you are seeking the video. There will be sample letters on how to file a request for records and rules regarding the states open records rules.
