NYPD hits parked car & arrests man for destruction of city prop, resisting arrest & more

Two Brooklyn cops sideswiped a parked SUV, then arrested a man sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, accusing him of damaging their car, a suit charges.

And the officers would have gotten away with their lie — had the whole bizarre drama not been caught by a security camera.

Robert Jackson, 31, told The Post his nightmare began when a police car heading the wrong way on one-way Watkins Street in Brownsville scraped against a parked Ford Explorer, which belongs to his girlfriend.

Jackson, a maintenance worker, said he was sitting in the legally parked car outside of his apartment when the accident happened. He got out of the vehicle and walked up to the officers.

“I was smiling, like, ‘How’d you run into me?’ ” he recalled. “Then the cop said, ‘Dude, you ran into me.’ ”

“I just wanted them to fix the damage and apologize, but it didn’t turn out that way,” Jackson said. “They were trying to cover it up.”

At that point, things got even more surreal.

And the beat goes on ....

So originally the cops charged him with multiple charges

In light of the obvious crimes of the officers, rather than drop all charges, they try and continue with the absurd charge of driving without a license. Prosecutors are just as big of criminal jackasses.

"Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito."

But if the car was on,

he would technically have been considered to have been operating the vehicle, so the driving on a suspended license charge would stick? So, when I start my car, then strap my three-year old into her car seat, then walk around the vehicle to help another child, I've technically let my three-year old operate the vehicle?

Defend Liberty!

in short,

Yup. That's government-protecting and serving the shit out of you.

When I was in high school,

When I was in high school, the cops broke up a house party full of underage drinking. My friend, lets call him Bronco II, was upstairs in the house and was planning on sleeping over. The cops started screaming that whoever owns a Bronco II is parked illegally and going to be towed. We went outside to see that he was indeed not parked illegally. The cop said his front bumper was protruding a couple inches in front of the neighbor's driveway. Bronco II got in, put it in reverse, backed up literally two inches, parked and got out. The cops arrested him for DUI.

All was not lost however. It turns out Bronco II's dad was an Air Force Veteran and current police chief of a neighboring town, and actually one of the good cops. Bronco II was luckily let free.

This is More Common Than You'd Guess

...since most municipalities are "self-insured" a citation is usually issued to the peasant and the empire forces him/her to hire a lawyer to get reimbursed for damages, and to clear one's "record".
To arrest him was an "over-zealous" response, most likely due to the cops being:
"where they shouldn't have been"
"doing something they shouldn't have been doing"....or,
"covering their arses"
Throw the book at 'em judge!

Go Russian???

???

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Yeah everyone in Russia has dash-cams

in their cars to keep from being sued by con artists.

Is it a " virus " that effects only LEO's ?

What in the world is wrong with these ....... ........ ........ !

Thugs, and proud of it " what you gonna do punks, we gonna just do what we want, and if you so much as peep we gonna fuck up your life, got it slaves ! " seems to be their thought process.

Chances are, the internal investigation will reveal the " officers were justified because a slave dared to question their authority, thereby eliminating any harm the officers did prior." or something to this effect.

I hate to even think what is coming next.

It's a mass social cognition experiment by a tiny group of..

Similar to the Stanford Prison experiment.

"Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito."

Well they

Certainly prove the thesis as readily as the Stanford prison experience did, that's for sure.

ah hahaha the picture at the top

says it all.

LoL: "Dude, you ran into me," from the passengers side?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Anyone ever see the opening

scenes in the movie The Other Guys?

I thought it was exaggerated...guess not.

I am curious as to why the police (nationally it appears) have become so self-serving and dangerous.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

At a bare minimum...

...those two cops should be immediately fired.

Anything less than that consequence is a joke. I'm guessing a slap on the wrist and a paid vacation.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

you kidding?

These guys just fixed themselves up with an extended paid vacation! Oh, you just said that.

100% agree.

they need to be fired immediately. like you said, at bare minimum.

I would have had their tongues removed.
"All we serve here is tongue, you boys like tongue?" Lying tongues should lie on the ground if they have to lie around anywhere.

lying is not victimless. there has to be a victim for there to be a lie... the cops are criminal and need to be punished accordingly. not only did they lie, they did it under oath to one of their masters...

what does it teach us if we let them go? why even have police at that point?

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

Now those are some real rat bastard cops
