Richmond Police CopBlocked While Ticketing Folks for Jaywalking

By Nathan Cox, of (which is looking for more police accountability folks)

Approximately 8:40 last night I was in the VCU area on Broad St. I was actually headed to Aladdin’s on Broad to get a gyro, boy are they good. I noticed a cop with his blue lights on in the far hand lane just parked in the street.. a couple shops up from Aladdin’s. So I parked at the other end of the block from Aladdin’s (where the cop was). As I walked towards the restaurant I noticed two young kids visibly upset and pleading with the police his case.

So I whip out my camera and the rest is on tape. There are two parts because I noticed my camera had shut off due to a lack of memory so I immediately turned on Qik on my mobile Phone. Both gentleman ended up missing their bus and receiving citations for jawalking (amongst a crowd of “twenty” who did as well, but didn’t get singled out)

I gave both gentleman, one bystander, and one cop Cop Block business cards, and gave the two gentlemen involved with the police altercation a personal business card.

I believe those Richmond City Cops were “warrant fishing”, meaning they pull people over or stop being walking by whom they suspect might have warrants so they can make the arrest.
