F – the Police Shirt in Court – Short Video (Update)
Mike Burns has made several appearances on CopBlock.org and one of his most popular videos/posts was when he wore a “Fuck the Police” shirt to court. In that post Mike wrote:
This goes back to a traffic ticket for “obstructed tag” from having of all things, an FOP badge on it. (don’t ask.. its a love/hate thing with having it on).
The actual reason for being pulled over was because I was attempting to record what the Broward County Sheriff was doing on the size of a highway breaking up a get-together at a public boat ramp..(albeit at 1:30 in the morning). One officer told me they were just “ruining peoples fun”.. then said they don’t know what they were doing but they could be doing all sorts of illegal activities”.. non-sense.. as I made my way up the boat ramp/levee Deputy Paul Sada of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office told me I could not be there to film… even though it was public property. After getting his name, I left without an argument.
Once I left he got behind me along with six other BSO officers finally pulling me over five miles down the road as I was about to make a u-turn to go home. (The car is not in my name so.. he really wanted to pull me over to get my name.)
I got a little tired of going to court in a suit and tie to fight against lying officers with judges that did not care about the lie even when it was proven with a video. I was happy this time going to court in my FUCK THE POLICE t-shirt fully expecting to lose either way.
Mike recently got around to shortening the longer video (also posted below) so if you missed it, here’s his “F the Police Shirt in Court Video.”
