Orange County – Aftermath of a home search-and-seizure

This submission comes to us from jpcfourth who captured video and had what he describes as a not-too-friendly exchange with some of the area’s law enforcement “professionals.” Hopefully, were such an incident to happen in the future, others from the neighborhood, just as concerned with the tactics seen, would be present questioning as well. -Pete

On April 10th, 2012 around 4:00pm PST, a search was conducted on the cross-streets of Dale and Lola in Anaheim, CA. I had been hearing a chopper buzzing around my neighborhood, and had a feeling something was up. Instinctively I decided to investigate. I followed the streets down to what seemed to be the center of where the chopper had been circling, and low-and-behold, something large was taking place. I pulled out my camera after several police vehicles came into view. All the way down Lola Ave. were several police vehicles from Orange County Sheriff’s Department, Anaheim PD, Stanton PD, as well as several unmarked police units.

After trying to get some information, and being denied an officer’s identification, I simply continued on my quest to find out what was going on in my hometown. After several vehicles left the sides of the streets that they were blocking, I decided to head on down to where the home-in-question was located. I was immediately shown disapproval from all surrounding officers, as if it instantly discomforted them.

Shortly after, what appeared to be the owner of the home arrived, and it was requested of me by Officer K. Bourne #335 to vacate the premises to a reasonable distance, complying of course to his request. As I start to walk away I decided to get this man’s identity, which he immediately refused with an attitude, as well as the intimidation tactic of corralling. The officer went so far as to stepping on my toes (although it didnt hurt, any unwanted contact as a method of intimidation is legally considered assault). I immediately attributed this to “Napoleon Bonaparte Complex”, a short, fat dude with a temper to look like a tough guy in front of his larger gang affiliates.

Shortly after this interaction with Napoleon, another officer asked me if I had any questions regarding what had happened, I asked if it was a warranted search, and the officer’s response was “you don’t need one”. This appalled me, and I retaliated by stating that they did not care about The Constitution.

This was my most recent contact with yet another unprofessional officer. I will also be contacting the proper authorities to see if this video can be used as evidence for the defense of whomever is being prosecuted, seeing as the officer implied that no warrant was needed for this search, and property damage.

Let me know your thoughts!
