Breaking: Addison TX Officer Assaults Brett Sanders for Legally Filming

In a video uploaded to the YouTube channel run by Brett Sanders, an officer from the Addison Police Department can be seen aggressively crossing the street to confront Brett for filming the police department.  Brett was open carrying and videotaping from a public sidewalk.  He was violating no laws.

The officer begins by asking, “Can I help you sir?”  Brett replies that he doesn’t need help.  Next, he tells Mr. Sanders to move along and that he doesn’t need to be videotaping the police department unless he has a reason to be videotaping.  He says that he does have a reason and is questioned as to what his reason is.  Brett says that he doesn’t need to tell him.  The officer then tells him that he needs to move on then.

The officer then asks him if he has any ID on him.  Brett replies yes and the officer asks if he can see his ID.  Brett refuses and the officer tells him that he has him under detention.  Under Texas Law, one does not have to provide identification unless you are under arrest.

addison copThe officer continues trying several more times to get Brett’s identification and each time, he refuses.  He then tells him that if he doesn’t present his ID that he is going to place him under arrest.  The officer is asked several times throughout the video to articulate what crime Brett is suspected of committing and never receives an answer.

Brett tells the officer that he is going to reach for his cell phone and the officer states that he is not and that he needs to reach for his identification.  Brett reaches for his phone and the officer grabs him and the camera.  Brett pulls away and tells the officer not to grab his camera.  The officer states that he doesn’t know if Sanders is going to call someone to come and do something to him.  He is then asked his name and the officer replies Officer Bagley or Bagler, badge number 179.  A car was driving by when he gives his name and it is hard to make out.

The officer then goes hands on and takes Sanders to the ground, handcuffs, and assaults him, all while he was engaged in the legal activity of filming a police department.  He was detained for 20 minutes and given a lecture about why the police get nervous being filmed and then released.  Brett sustained an injury to his leg, which he shows in the video.

Please be aware that standing up for your rights can lead to such things as arrest, injury, and death.  Filming the police is a dangerous activity as you can see in this video.  Brett Sanders is a professional when it comes to filming the police and standing up to them when they attempt to violate his rights.  Notice that he remained respectful while flexing his rights to this bully officer that obviously thought he could push a citizen,  who was not breaking any laws, around.

I encourage you to watch any and all of Brett’s videos as he demonstrates over and over how this should be done. Hats off to Brett Sanders for keeping his cool and not bowing down to this tyrant in a costume.

Light up the phone lines at Addison Police Department and demand action be taken against Officer Bagler/Bagley, badge 179 for his flagrant violation of Brett’s civil rights.  Remind them that  filming anything that is visible from a public space is perfectly legal and is constitutionally protected activity and that “Badges Don’t Give Extra Rights.”  I hope that Brett takes legal action for this incident as this officer had no legal rights to put his hands on him and injure him.

Contact Addison Police Department, 972-450-7156, Officer involved:  Officer Bagler or Bagley, badge number 179.

  • Boko Hos

    Another cop that needs a bullet in the head, let’s hope he gets one.

  • Cops Hate Cats

    Skinhead cop one of the most dangerous police officers ever in the US. Fuck that cop

  • CopsKill

    Nothing new, another cop assaults a citizen…..surprised he didn’t kill him.

    Never trust police.

  • Bryan E. Richardson

    I fully agree with the officers actions. They have a right to protect themselves. This kind of shit is stupid.

  • Doug McGinn

    You should pack your belongings and relocate yourself to China.

  • Wedeln6969

    Best part is how afraid cops are of public accountability. The attacking officer was a total pussy.

  • Mike Riley

    yeah man, that film has a rep for being deadly!

  • Michael J. Motta

    Fascist! Who needed protection here? Looks like the victim did, not the cop-perp, as usual! In fact, instead of cops I might just start calling them perps.

  • disqus_AtF6T98fj0

    Did you file against the police department for this violation? If not, you might as well just hang up the camera.

  • disqus_AtF6T98fj0

    What exactly did they need protecting from? The constitution?

  • Darold Adams

    Dude is lucky he didn’t get shot by the police state.

  • Shon Johnson

    The cop has no need to be afraid of a camera recording unless he has something to hide….

  • SineNomine

    Protect themselves from what? A guy standing waaaaaay the hell across the street with a video camera? You’re as delusional as Officer Baldy.

  • Taylor Costello

    They have no right to detain a citizen for filming them Bryan, regardless of how they feel about it. But you probly wipe your ass with the constitution huh?

  • If you do not have anything to hide……why should you care if you’re filmed or not, ehhhhh?

  • Common Sense

    I will side with Larry on this one. Standing and filming is permissible as he was not interfering with anything that I could see, regardless if he was OC. Unless he was doing something that’s on the cops body cam not shown, I would file a complaint and a tort.

  • $1704939

    Another typical piss-ant cop who thinks he is the law. Trampling his rights while insisting on something he no authority to insist on. Calls for another unit.. then, denies the guy use of his cell-phone because hes afraid hes calling someone to come and help him. Anybody for a thick slice of fresh hypocrisy?

  • joe bloe

    Actually dipshit, they do. They can detain you for investigation and if you are detained you must provide ID. Good luck with that lawsuit!

  • joe bloe

    I love it when people go out looking for a confrontation and they get it. Then they whine like pussies on the internet about being wronged. I have NO sympathy for this instigator. He is cut from the same cloth as the “open carry” assholes. Don’t you people have anything better to do than instigate confrontations with cops that are just standing around so you can get your 30 seconds of youtube fame> Pathetic.

  • joe bloe

    don’t hope, go out and do it internet badass. This site is so full of pussies there should be cat pictures instead of fake police “confrontations”.

  • rkirk2k

    Lived in the Dallas area for six years. Addison police are WELL KNOWN for their liberal use of power. It’s one of the reasons I moved away. reasons

  • JC

    Another dumbass copblocker who doesn’t know the law as well as he thinks he does. The officer was right and you were wrong.

  • JC

    Make threats towards a police officer. I will fill out the paperwork and turn it in too investigations.

  • Jonathan Wint

    No the supream court ruled on this. Cop was not even close to being in his rights.Texas last i cheched is part of the USA.

  • Jonathan Wint

    You can film what u like when u like no id required.

  • Jonathan Wint

    No u do not.Supream court decided this. Please learn to think.

  • Jonathan Wint

    Thats how the supream court felt…

  • Marianne Neal

    Good job, Mr. Sanders. Correct understanding of ID law in Texas.

  • Larry Freeman

    The incident just happened on June 25

  • vegas jack

    Here is yet another law breaking Coward with a badge. What a pathetic piece of shit.

  • Paulie

    Give yourselves an uppercut..all of you.

  • Sad indictment

    And every one of them contribute far far more to society than a cop and most are paid far far less.

  • Waiting

    What mental condition is it when someone is so completely incorrect yet goes on websites and insists their fiction in fact.

    You have that condition.

    And before you claim you were correct- do a google search and supply us all the references to support your claim. Case law, court rulings, statutes and laws should all be easily provided if your claim is fact and not a result of a mental condition. Police may only operate within these parameters.

    We will wait.

  • bongwaterstudios

    He made no such thing, it just a statement of hope and wishing did not say he was going to do any thing, if you’re a cop go do some real work and leave these 12 and 14 yr old trolls alone.

  • bongwaterstudios

    If he didn’t know the law why was he free to go about his day with the camera still rolling?

  • James Michael

    Maggot, treasonous, felon, moron, skinhead, would have been under arrest in his own cuffs….For breach of my peace and his sworn oath…..and aggravated assault and battery, and attempted kidnapping …and would be filed in my court at the local court of record…..All felonies.
    Would have told this stupid ignorant thug to fuck off…..unlawful detention is nothing just another traitor.
    Moron to be detained is to be taken prisoner…you retarded asshole thug….
    This cadged armed moron really deserved a bullet, or a noose.
    Texas psychopath morons with badges and guns in action once again….

  • James Michael

    Shut the fuck up you coward traitor lover and if one ever tries this shit with me, you’ll see him face down in the dirt, locked in his own damned cuffs and under arrest douchenozzle, count on it……

  • James Michael

    Here is a promise JC…any of you treasonous, felon, maggots attempt this shit with me… I’ll put your coward felon ass in the dirt….

  • James Michael

    Well they are traitors and felons….

  • Larry Freeman

    In Texas under the Texas penal code, one is only required to identify himself once under legal arrest. Detain mentioned is not enough to require I’d in texas.

  • Lucky Omerta

    Same thing the cops try to use. “If you have nothing to hide, why won’t you provide me with your ID?”

  • Leon Bonta

    mr cleans ugly brother getting all huffy n puffy hahahahaah

  • JC

    No, the police officer engaged him asking what he was doing. The LEO then asked for ID. Yes he was let go at the end but only after ID himself.

  • JC

    I see you posted a self portrait of yourself. You must have dug this one up out of your family photo album.

  • mioman

    what a richard cranium

  • Patrick H.

    They hate cameras even if the dept. is legit, what would happen if they started concentration camps.

  • Patrick H.

    Aren’t you afraid your under age kidknapped girl is trying to escape?

  • Patrick H.

    I carry my own handcuffs. And I open carry.

  • Patrick H.

    Looked to me he was just standing there doing lawful things, and the cop blew a gasket for nothing. For the record police open carry, they are just paid to be on call. When an entity incorporates it becomes a citizen under law. All citizens have a right to open carry for self defense and defense of others. Thats what police do, as all citizens can do. Reread your government book again.

  • Patrick H.

    Supreme court says your full of shit JC. But good news today JC, you can now marry your Daddy, and your Uncle Bob. Aren’t you Happy?

  • Patrick H.

    Protect themselves from what? A cam?

  • Patrick H.

    I think he wipes their ass with his tongue, or he needs to brush his teeth.

  • steve

    As I always say if ya wanna play with fire.

  • steve

    He aint no cop . His name is Paul and he lived in Keene NH . Now in Florica his previous names were Jake C and Slappy.

  • JD Smith

    He needs to sue.Many precedents of lawsuits filed w/less evidence than this case.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    this officer should have his skin cut off with a hole punch. his eyes should be taken out with a fork while he’s watching. after the torture is finished, he should be hung over an overpass with his own intestines. but before any of this happens though, his family should be set on fire in front of him so he can witness the anguish in theis screams.

  • Chicago Style

    Why do videographers who represent nonprofit organizations for police accountability projects afraid to present their identification to police? Aren’t they public officials, as well? Does their funding support criminal solicitation?

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    how do you like your family JC? well done?

  • jonn

    Shut the hell up!
    You are the biggest badge licking pussy on this site!
    You aren’t going to fill out any damned paperwork, even real cops laugh at your pathetic rants.
    Go back and try to impress the chubby chicks with your spastic kangaroo “kick”.
    In the comment section of this site you’re nothing but a brown-nosing, wanna-be, loser!

  • jonn

    Holy Crap……the stupid in here this evening is so thick you can cut it with a knife!!!
    Alright you wanna-be legal scholars that think Officer Dumb-ass is right, look up and read TEXAS PENAL CODE 38.02, it will tell you alllllll about what Officer Dumb-ass did wrong and why he should be arrested for at least assault.
    One last point, JC, I said Penal Code, not Penis Code you cop-sucking pansy!

  • Pw4x3r

    More lies. The small level of joy you get from this every day is fucking pathetic, guy. Cut your wrists and do something for the world.

  • Pw4x3r

    TERRORIST. This fucking pig is a fucking terrorist. Plain and fucking simple. Prime candidate for the death sentence for corrupt cops law which needs to have been enacted yesteryear. Slightly disappointing he didn’t uphold his rights to the extent of ending this pig’s life on the spot for violating his rights, which would have been PERFECTLY legal in this case….. this is one mother fucking filthy swine who got really lucky.

  • Pw4x3r

    Death sentence for corrupt police.

  • YooperInVegas

    So all people exercising their Second Amendment rights by choosing to open carry in states where open carry is legal are ‘assholes’? Does the very sight of a gun carried by anyone other then guys like this Gestapo emulating cop that you so slavishly admire frighten you? If you really think that everyone who open carries does it to only to agitate the cops, then I’d say you have more issues than anyone who films the police in action.

  • James Michael

    Good man….Need them with all the ignorant treasonous asshats around….

  • Scott McConnell

    i guess there were no teenage black girls in swim suits close by huh

  • phranker

    Yep, Bryan, they have a right to protect themselves. Unfortunately, the need for “protection” didn’t exist. Instead, he assaulted a citizen who was exercising his Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms. Now, I know cameras mean accountability, and armed citizens are scary, but no one ever forced a cop to be a cop (There’s no draft for police, right? Please feel free to correct me if I’m mistaken). If you can’t do your job without being such a frightened and overwhelmed douchenozzle, seek different employment. S.C.O.T.U.S. ruled this guy’s actions (open carrying and filming public officials in a public place) are 100% legal. This stupid effing piece of shit coward of a cop hasn’t the right or authority to bypass our rights due to “suspicion”. Learn the law, pay attention, and weep as you realize the shape of the American police state.

  • phranker

    Silly, simple fucktard. Detainment requires that a l.e.o. have articulable suspicion that a person has committed a crime, is in the commission of a crime, or is an immediate threat to police or other civilian(s) lives. That means that an officer needs to know what law you’re suspected of breaking (specifically, as in a statute or ordinance citation). Coward cops can’t (legally) demand i.d. without meeting said requirements (unless you’re in a “stop and i.d.” state, which Texas isn’t). Thanks for posting something profoundly wrong and strongly moronic, I needed a chuckle at your expense. lol Hope that, between myself and the other authors responding to your idiocy, that you took something with you. Now, shoo, troll. Shoo!

  • Simpleton

    This officer did an excellent job is escalating the situation. He get’s an A+. He must he been out sick the day they trained de-escalation techniques at the academy.

  • Mark b

    Man stands in front of your house or your mothers house with a gun on his hip and you would be hoping the police would get their quick when you called. I am all for gun rights but jack asses doing unneccessary crap on purpose just to jack with cops is stupid. I cant believe how ignorant some people are. Use some better judgement a police dept was attacked in Dallas about the same time this happened.

  • joe bloe

    all talk. you would cry for your mommy like that black girl at the texas pool party.

  • joe bloe

    no doubt. no one said you can’t. But this asshole was looking for a confrontation. When he got one he cried for his mommy.

  • joe bloe

    You know exactly what assholes I’m talking about. Yes, that’s it, guns frighten me. That’s the only way your pea brain could wrap around my position. I’ll put my guns and pro 2a up against yours for cash any time you are willing.

  • joe bloe

    Yeah, all westboro baptist church does is stand there doing lawful things. They are still instigating and still assholes looking for the limelight at the expense of others. Conceal it at the proper times. walking around on your property or in the woods is one thing. Standing across the street from the police station is another. Grow up and try to get attention like an adult.

  • joe bloe

    A statement that is just so pathetic no one beyond this keyboard cowboy site would ever take you seriously again after you said it. You are a hero among faggots.

  • joe bloe

    so you don’t think standing across the street from the police station open carrying and filming would fly as reasonable suspicion in court? Wanna bet on that?

  • joe bloe

    I guess you didn’t watch the video, or you are retarded. He was detained, disarmed and identified. He was then released. Which part didn’t you understand? The part where he didn’t have to show his ID?

  • joe bloe

    Blowhard keyboard cowboy would be begging for them to loosen the cuffs in the back seat with a black eye. All talk, no balls. James would crumble at the sight of this officer approaching him/her.

  • joe bloe

    and all thrown out.

  • joe bloe

    Tough talk. on the internet.

  • joe bloe

    no, you wouldn’t.

  • joe bloe

    good, then their tactics are working.

  • joe bloe

    since you are a lawyer, why don’t you cite it for us? yeah, right.

  • YooperInVegas

    Thanks for a good laugh. I’m surprised you didn’t challenge me to a fist fight. You’ll put your guns and 2nd Amendment stance up against mine for cash? That is some funny shit. How much cash are we talking about? Your 5 dollar allowance your mom gives you every week?

  • joe bloe

    he already articulated that. Officer safety.

  • joe bloe

    you are a tough guy, why don’t you go down to the police office and start some shit?

  • joe bloe

    listen fucktard, if you don’t think that cop can articulate his reasonable suspicion to a judge go out and do it. You notice nothing happened to the cop? you notice nothing will? you notice the cop detained him, disaRmed him and ID’d him right? Laugh all you want, then you will have to step out into the real world. Another keyboard cowboy.

  • Pw4x3r

    Branding this pig the terrorist that he is – is ‘tough talk?’ Or is it the part where I proclaim my disappointment with the guy not having defended himself to the maximum extent possible? Or, are you another troll who can’t pass third grade reading comprehension? Or did you have something so anti-American to say or demonstrate that you yourself wanted to meet in person? Very baffling.

  • joe bloe

    no, this is tough talk, from a pussy that won’t do shit.

    “Prime candidate for the death sentence”

    “ending this pig’s life on the spot”

    Oh, and all the name calling you wouldn’t have the balls to do to anyone’s face.

  • joe bloe

    my mom has been dead for a decade. how does $1,000 sound?

  • Pw4x3r

    Your assumption I don’t call bootlickers by what they are in public is just RofuckingL!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought you might bring something above JC status to the table but you really are nothing but retarded swine filth.

  • JD Smith

    Apparently you have not read Glik v Cunniffe(US COURT of APPEALS-8/26/11) that gave the right of citizens to video public officials in a public place. This precedent has lead to many successful lawsuits against police for trying to deny citizens this right.I am familiar w/a number of settlements that resulted due to this precedent.The situation described in this article is clearly a violation of the Glik decision.Your position that suits against police for denying this right have all been thrown out is incorrect.Look up the Glik v Cunniffe decision you might learn something.

  • JD Smith

    BTW the Glik v Cunniffe case was settled for $170,000 against the Boston PD.Mr. Glik is the wronged citizen and Mr. Cunniffe is the Boston cop who lost the case.So a $170,000 settlement is not exactly a case that was “thrown out”.

  • Havinthangs

    this fkn guy would have been connected to my hip for the next 5 yrs in court ! i would have had him an his wife as long with the station served . All you “public servants” need to realize that it is fkn legal to film yous while on duty ! supreme court also ruled in fav of that . An the last i checked , they out rule you ! Jus another rouge ass public servant . An pretty sure tx has a law called stand your ground . even if it is against a rouge public servant . This shit is way out of control , you mother fkers kill everybody ,an the best part about it is you fks try to justify it some how .. So when the American citizens start firing back you’s will no why !

  • Havinthangs

    jus another rouge ass ‘public servant” thinking hes a tuff guy ! This shit is out of fkn control already . I cant fkn wait till the American citizens start firing back at these fk’s.. How long do they think were gonna keep letting this shit go on for . its ever fkn day some were in America these fks kill somebody , oo an the best part is they try to justify some how . At least there stating to hold these rough ass public servants responsible for there actions . An not all cops are bad but the bad ones fk it up for the d ones that are out there . An last time i checked its legal in all 50 states to tape rec public servants while on duty ! supreme court ruled in fav of it , jus like they did for giving them the finger ! I hope this guy who this happened to was smart enough to fill suit against this cop an the station he works for !

  • phranker

    “Officer Safety”, huh? What statute is that? What law or ordinance does that fall under? Oh, right, it doesn’t. It’s a catch-all, like “stop resisting”, as they beat the shit out of non-combative people. It’s B.S., and doesn’t meet the requirements for detainment. A cop saying “I didn’t feel safe” is NOT (legally) acceptable reason to detain an individual. It MUST be in relation to an ARTICULABLE suspicion of a crime. Thanks for playing, though, and try again tomorrow. Statistically speaking, you’re bound to get something right someday…

  • James Michael

    Come get me traitor…if you have a claim with cause, domestic enemy….
    Oh….I am a citizen? Prove it moron and of which US, you ignorant moron?…You are not a citizen of the Republic, douchenozzle…. You are too stupid and brainwashed to be.
    They already tried to come in here for another false call…they left with nothing….Will be glad to take your paychecks ass hole… Not one firearm here…But alot of arms traitor…
    Superiors? ahahahahahhahahhahaha You aren’t superior to a pile of shit maggot…..I don’t live on a democracy asshole….
    Stupid cowards…

  • James Michael

    The truth is never pathetic asshat….You are though…

  • James Michael

    Actually…I would have knocked his dick in the dirt…If I even saw him do that…as he deserved….

  • Taylor Costello

    you cant detain somebody and investigate them for something that isnt illegal fuckin moron. thats like sayin a cop with diabetes can detain you for eating ice cream in public because he doesnt like it and makes him feel unsafe. its called the 4th amendment jackass, learn your rights.

  • Robert E. Treacle Jr.

    Officer safety is not and never has been a law. Nor is it illegal for an officer to feel unsafe. No law was broken, nor could the officer reasonably think someone doing a perfectly legal activity was in the commission of, or about to commit a crime.
    The officer bit off more than he could chew while showing off to his buddies. Then he was too stupid to just be polite and back off.

  • Baron

    WTF is this what you do for a living..?? Piss Cops off ? Really?? You went to the Art Institute in Pgh.an you come out…So now you stand outside a police station an piss people off?? You know I had someone filming me in a rain storm drinking a beer after helping a buddy do some work.when he saw I saw him he ran…back then he was a smart man..iF YOU DID THAT TO ME ID BE PISSED TOO! Get a life an get a job cause after you pissed him off someone else has to suffer for pissing him off! Half the Police already have PTSD…Your a stupid person..your so typical of this Media Generation..clueless…Trying to start trouble with the Police! Why don’t you go film Politicians ..cause most of the time they like it!! Except when there doing the dirt.shit an getting caught…Go chase them if you want to be a “HERO”…

  • chrismalllory

    If the government employees are not doing any thing wrong then they should have no problem being filmed. What do they have to hide?

  • chrismalllory

    Not only was he assaulted, he had a battery committed against him.

  • chrismalllory

    Some one standing with a gun on his hip is not breaking any law and there is no reason to call the cops in the first place. As for the cops being cowards, they are paid to take risks. If they do not want those risks, then they are more than welcome to find honest employment.

    All cops lie, all the time.
    Disarm cops for a safer America.

    Disarm the cops?? Then let the criminals take control..Dude u have a major screw loose and I don’t think there is a tool that will fix you!!! You really are out there..The 2nd amendment is there to protect the citizens and believe it or not..Police to are citizens..Yes there are major problems going on in our country..and I have had police draw guns on me or where I was twice now..Until a cop knows why you are where you are he will have a weapon drawn..I too have seen the videos of cops totally wrong just gunning down kids and adults..no doubt those ones shouldn’t be police ..acting like Robo Cops..but to say disarm the Police ..Your out there… you better go to a reeducation camp or move…maybe to Russia or say Red China..or even better yet North Korea!

    Now re-imagine this incident if it were a black man open carrying while using a camera.

    Wow did you really say disarm cops for a safer America? Any chance of an intellegent convo is gone. Listen Chris you obviously have never worked with police closely. Police are nothing more than people like me and you. They work and wanna go home at night like most of us. There are good and bad as in most jobs. When they mess up they dont change jobs they change careers. As for cops being cowards and getting paid to take risk, which is it? If they dont need guns why is there any risk? Again, if your family member was not a gun owner and jackass was walking around in front of their home or office. Wouldnt you wish someone had enough since to at least call the police to make sure this jackass was not about to come shoot them up? All I am saying is USE BETTER JUDGEMENT. Use your gun rights and be resposible. Cooroperating and working together as a team will keep your government from taking our rights and get our country moving in the right direction by holding everyone accountable.

    Jackasses walking around trying to bait a cop into a problem at the same time a police dept was shot up by some other missguided idiot is not fixing anything. Just an idoit making things worse. Gun rights are great but stupid behavior is why we are losing rights. We need people to use good judgement and teach each other the importance and reasons to have gun rights. Its to defend ourselves from enemies both foreign and domistic including our own government. NOT trying to bait them into a problem. Our forefathers didnt hate our leadership just wanted to defend against it if needed.

    If I lived in TX, I would file the suit pro bono.
