because of their do as I say not as I do attitude, they pull you over and treat you like garbage enforcing the very laws they break.
Its nice to see this lady standing up for whats right even tho its another cop! I see cops speeding all the time just to get home but we have to worry about going over the speed limit at all times, so this is justice finally served, good for her. its too bad tho that most cops are corrupt psychopaths unlike her.
Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves...the land of liberty needs a regime change!
I want to like cops. I really do. They are supposed to be the good guy with the white hat n the gold star. I want to be proud of abiding by the law. I empathize with the danger they chose daily.
I always try to treat them with respect and let them un earn it.
Over 90% of the time they are polite to me in return.
But even the nice ones are still politely enforcing offensive unconstitutional laws.
I tip my hat to her. She was doing what she thought was the right thing. At least in that instance I agree with her judgment.
"You only live free if your willing to die free."
Rather, every single one of those 88 violators should be held financially responsible for their acts. $2500 per violator.
Each individual cop needs to be held personally and financially responsible. The counter argument may be, well they don't have the money, then just attached the amount of the fines from their lucrative tax payer provided retirement funds.
Cops do that sooo much here in Florida. I've seen plenty of times where a cop from Miami or ft Lauderdale is flying home on the highway going 90+ and broward county sheriff's and state troopers just let them keep going. Endangering everyone else. South east Florida is not filled with all slow old folks like the stereotype is. People drive 20+ over all the time line it's no big deal down here. I really hope that this officer wins and puts a big hurt on these officers that were harassing her. Only problem is that the money is likely not coming out of those officers pockets and is coming from the tax payers instead.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.
And he was rightly fired for trying to play that line as though it was worth trying to justify driving at speeds up to 120 MPH!
So why would 88 cops access her drivers license info, AND stake out her home to harass her? Because they thought they could do so, AND not have to answer for it to their superiors, or the court, of course!

With the penalty for each violation being $2,500, that would rack up to $500,000 in fines alone, not to mention the likelihood of this cop winning her case in court.
I'd love to see these eighty-eight flagrant violators of the law get the maximum penalty each, for each violation, AND have to pay out of their own pockets and pensions for these multiple violations of a law written to stop cops from doing this very thing. Maybe there would be fewer of them violating laws against them doing whatever else they please, eh?
...go back to school lady-newscaster;
5,000,000......not 500k....5 Million!!!
Hope the lady-cop gets it.....make the b^stards pay.
"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!
At 3:33 in the video it states $2500 was the penalty for breaking that law. I'm guessing the legislators wanted to make the cops think twice against doing wrong here, not potentially bankrupting them for each violation.
We don't know how many times MORE than two hundred times, Officer Watt's drivers license was illegally accessed to harass her, but rounding it down to two hundred is bad enough, eh?
She said twenty five hundred. That's $2,500. Not twenty five thousand which is $25,000.
I don't think her suit is about collecting the penalty total herself. That fine fee is to the government, not her.
Her damages are separate from that.
that TYT would be so outraged if it were a guy being harassed.
"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav
They cover everything so well except Global Warming....or Climate Change....or whatever BS name they want to give it to keep it alive.
They also think Ron Paul is responsible for that racist newsletter fiasco.
Other than that, not too bad.
If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.
Ya they cover some good things but then they go off the deep end I want to see someone say to them, "how much of a moron are you?" for crap like those newsletters.
Yeah I've thought the same thing.
It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain
Well, what they said about the newsletter thing, was that after seeing some of the speeches Ron Paul made during the time, they were willing to give him a pass. Because even though they felt he was culpable in the newsletter fiasco, things that he has said throughout his career; things he definitely said, showed that he wasn't a racist.
But, they heavily criticized the way Ron Paul handled the newsletter...that burying your head in the sand, crying that the media is attacking you, and potentially lying about his knowledge about the newsletters was very un-presidential.
On that second part, I did agree with them.

I would like to see where they said that because from what I recall they were pretty hell bent on pointing the finger at him for it. Especially after that CNN anchor ambushed Dr. Paul and he got pissed and walked away. So, if you have any video links please share, or possibly articles.
that was good.
You know what this reminds me of? James Clapper.
Just because you're given a position of authority does NOT put you above the LAW. That's supposed to apply equally. We're ALL just people. Accordingly we ALL can arrest/prosecute one another when it is justified.
No surprise that it's a woman. Hope she gets the money from the fines.
We only really get to see the bad cops and hear about cops covering each other. There are more actual good cops out there but the video evidence is rare as stated in the title. Good on you, lady, keep upholding the law equally as it should be.
You will probably continue to do so until you are beaten or illegally arrested.
Frankly, I find your gullibility amusing.
You have become the local police apologist.
Maybe when they shoot your dog, or your mentally handicapped paraplegic elderly neighbor, you can come back and tell us how awesome it was and how much they deserved it.
"I'm Ron Paul." - Ron Paul
But you are completely wrong. I choose to judge based on evidence presented rather than jumping to a conclusion. I watch this kind of judgement way too often on a site that is supposedly devoted to liberty and the constitution. Cops are presumed guilty with no way of being innocent simply because they wear a badge. I find it particularly pathetic the double standard that posters constantly hold; if a cop assumes you're guilty that is a bad thing but if you assume the cop is guilty that is the right thing. This is the opposite of the old "Obama could beat an old lady to death with a puppy" routine. The cop could save a house full of orphans and puppies from a fire and still be called evil here.
Open your eyes and don't become the beast you mean to fight. Believe it or not we do need policing of some sort. Some group that is independent of a situation to judge based on justice; police and judges. Otherwise you go back to lynch mobs and injustice. String em up without trial. The problem is that those who choose to serve have forgotten that they do, in fact, serve us and that they are there to mete out justice. They forget that law and justice are not mutually inclusive. Those that forget this are no better than the criminals they purport to fight; this goes for any of us.
No, not all cops are good cops and unfortunately, today, it seems most of them are bad. However, I will not condemn a person simply because they wear a badge. Until I see the evidence of wrong doing it is not right of me to call them evil. This is what I expect when I deal with anybody so it is the same courtesy I extend to everybody; innocent unless you are proven guilty.
if we have so many good cops, why so many videos of bad cops? It should be far fewer. If I were a cop, I'd have to speak-up and tell the bad ones to find another occupation and quit giving us a bad name.
The good cops need to be more publicly vocal about condemning bad cop behavior. That alone would make a lot of cops think twice before acting like thugs and give needed assurance to the public that they have our backs.
showing good cops here doesn't seem to push the agenda that all cops are evil. Granted, in today's world, most cops are either bad or evil, but there are a few good ones out there. This lady is proof of that. The problem is that in a forum based on liberty people seem all too eager to presume guilt before evidence of the contrary is presented. It is sad how people here yell about injustice and presumed guilt and then turn around and do the exact same thing as the monsters they perport to fight.
Each case is different just as each cop is. Each cop is either good or bad. Each cop either serves the people or not. And each cop deserves, under the rule of justice, to be judged based on their own actions or inactions rather than lumped in a pile. This is justice, this is fair, and this is what I believe we should do as a freedom loving group. In other words we should practice what we preach.
was a cop for many years. I learned two things hangin' around them. Only about 10% should be cops in the first place and nearly all of them have the mentality that its them against everybody else. That would include your grandmother, the Dali Llama, Ghandi... everybody out there may harm their precious life. They chose their occupation and they get a paycheck to raise their families, pay mortgages, car payments, insurance... blah blah and so forth. So why is it that when one of "their own" gets whacked, its like Mother Theresa was raped and murdered, the way they carry on about it. Like I said... about 10% are really geared for it and of course even they have bad days. I might add that its often a thankless job. But hey, it can't always be dark glasses and autographs.
God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.
I think everybody should keep that in mind when dealing with cops. It's always in your best interest to lead in resolving the situation peacefully. It seems most cops are looking for a confrontation.
Yeah, I realize we have rights and all but that means nothing to them. You need to pretend for a moment that no one has rights, it's anarchy and he has a gun. He's not there to help you and wouldn't if he could.
And how many cops are former military vets?
Look, they go over there, become, sad-to-say, damaged mentally. Then they come back, and find that they have no marketable skills save for law enforcement. They go to law enforcement, and their mental issues inevitably crop up.
That why shifting troop duties to police actions abroad and domestically is SO wrong on many levels.
We have seen and heard from many within the blurred lines of domestic law enforcement calling those other than themselves, civilians.
not the rule.
