Officer caught on video pushing a citizen.

There's some people whom would watch this video and believe there was no wrongful misconduct. They may believe the officer was protecting his partner and would ask questions later. I know police officers have to take certain measures to protect themselves, and their partners. But that doesn't look like the case in this video shot last night. And yes I know, your might say, well what was the whole story? There's got to be some reason those officers were on high alert like that! But, in my opinion,
whatever the situation at hand before becomes irrelevant after the cop pushes the guy away. They didn't seem like they were trying to arrest these particular individuals. The guy talking to the cop before the push looks like he had been there for quite awhile talking to the cop with his arms folded when the push took place. Now I could care less about the cop pushing him. After the officer pushed him away which seems a bit drastic, he went back to writing in his journal immediately. That to me doesn't warrant the other officer to arrest him thereafter in my opinion. But he does.......Whats your take on it?

  1. Officers are supposed to be held accountable in all aspects of the law, and I'm a firm believer that officer's hold to much power in our country and don't have to be accountable for there actions unless caught or video taped. Most do there jobs and do them with a high regard, and yes some just have a bad day and take it out on the public, punks or grama's at time with no recourse in actions due to there lack of being able to deal with the stress of the job and at home situations.

  2. LEO tyrant behavior must be stopped. LEO's are sworn to protect and serve and uphold the law, not break it and abuse their authority.

  4. If you would like to be taken seriously, at least proofread your blog before you hit the submit button.

    The officer did not beat the man. The citizen was not hurt in any way. The arrest just calmed the situation down for the time being. We don't know if he was charged with anything. If he has been charged with something, then I would say it was probably unwarranted, but the arrest looks like it was done to calm down the situation so they could finish the job they had started.

    regardless of trying to calm a situation down. causing a false sence of trouble is not the way to go.the orificer that pushed the citizen was in the wrong and so was the orificer that jumped to conclusion in his defence. But hey, in the orificer's minds it is WAY OKAY to do damage first and MAYBE deal with consequences after the fact while the public have to deal right then and now and for the days and costs during and later.

    1. Proofread? You wrote "sence". Even if this person wasn't charged, his rights were violated. Watching innocent people's rights get trampled never has a calming effect. This behavior is not atypical for cops which is why they freak out over cameras.

  6. The first officer commited assault, plain and simple only to have his buddy then falsly arrest the "perp"...Pigs wallow in shit, thats why they stink so bad.

  7. This man was clearly not under arrest at the time of the shove.

    I find it sad that so many Americans believe this conduct is acceptable! Just because he is a police officer, does not mean he can go around shoving anyone he pleases. If he felt that his personal space was being invaded, step back. If someone stands to close to me in line at the store, can I just shove them away?

    I admit that we don't know what was being said by the man, but if it was anything aggressive why wouldn't the officer have arrested then and there? (without unnecessary force).

    The police in this country have far to much power. They can circumvent our constitutional rights by fabricating "probable cause". Without having significant education in law, they can charge you with whatever want, leaving you to pay thousands in legal fees to defend yourself.

    Most people are AFRAID of the police! Aren't we supposed to look to them for protection? Yet we are afraid of having our privacy invaded when pulled over for having a bulb out etc.

    People of America need to WAKE UP. Fight for our constitutional rights.

  8. This is unfortunately sad but an all so common occurance in Fort Collins...it is second only to the laziness of the FCPD to perform their jobs with any amount of energy or seriousness. Its practically impossible to get past dispatch and even get to speak with an officer if a situation occurs...it is not until after something has escalated to beyond serious or it appears to be an opportunity to be a hero will you have any luck getting help. And if you press for them to perform their job, you will quickly become a defendant instead of the person that made a distress call. My tax dollars would be best spent on having the Feds come do a couple of years of "hand holding" and training for this Department and the DA's office. But unfortunately the FCPD and DA's bought and sold along with the Coloradoan that does not accurately report the goings on in this County.

    1. I live in Fort Collins. I can judge from my experiences with them. This is the behavior I've come to expect. Besides, there was enough context to see this is wrong. Ask Timothy Masters.

  10. I don't care what else there is, this guy was standing there just talking to him and he came out of no where and shoved the dude.

    What would have happened if the cop saw that guy shove some random person, or another cop like that? HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED!

    The only difference here is that the cop did the shoving and is now arresting the victim and probably the cameraman if he got his way

  11. I won't suspend judgement - that was 2 stupid, powertripping shitbags.

    The police in the US seems to be fucked beyond any hope of recovery.

  12. The people filming should have stopped the police from arresting him by any means... Put them in the ICU if you have too. That is the only way police will learn in this country to act right. We have a 2nd amendment... Use it ... The constitution say you can and all Americans should back each other on that

  13. 1. I may not be familiar with US or state laws but I do believe the arresting officer is compelled to give you a reason for your arrest.

    2. I also believe that the individual was not in any way or manner exhibiting an action to be perceived as a threat. You can clearly see both his hands were in his chest and I can surmise that the uncalled shove could be due to the fact that the person was perhaps trying to read whatever was the officer was writing.

    3. It would seem that the situation could have been easily diffused had the officer given a warning in a loud clear manner that his personal space was being invaded. It can warrant arrest but that is after the officer has clearly established that the individual exhibits aggressive tendencies (high probable cause of physical altercation) and further warning was ignored.

    4. Verbal abuse alone should not be a ground for arrest. A seasoned and experienced police officer knows that the last thing to do is to make things personal and be the instigator. The badge and oath they took as police officers- to serve and protect- as public servants would entail having both good and bad situations. A good officer knows that even in a bad day, he needs to man up and be ready to uphold the sacred oath he took.

    5. Clearly, when emotions are at stake even in the most trivial of situations, it would be best to simply call for a senior officer's advice to prevent escalation.

  15. funny how if you touch an officer you get in big trouble and when they touch you its ok. i think something should be done about this and have it stopped in Fort Collins, i know that they have a job to do but if you want respect then you need to give it back in order to get it.

  17. My take on it is, that you MUST avoid talking to the cops, for whatever reason. Avoid the cars too. Do it discretely, though.

    Cops are NOT your friends. Do not think you're carrying on a friend discussion with them. You can be as nice as you can with them, but when they feel like arresting or beating you, etc. they WILL do it...without a 2nd thought.

    P.S. research online, anything about
    - Laws and Statutes.. differences between them,
    - "the Strawman"
    - "Names in ALL CAPS"

    AND

    legal Terms (Legalese a Foreign Language)- See Black's Law Dictionary.

    The Mass Media says the Constitution is no longer in effect, but when enough people insists, the Constitution is still Alive and Well.

  20. Always get the name of the guy who was arrested. That way you can split the $100 k that he will get when his claim is settled.
    Then sue the cop in a civil case, take everything he has and everything that he will earn for the next 50 years.

  21. For all of you "fook the police" ppl here, I know you really want to believe the police just did this for no reason. Sorry to say to you all, you're wrong. I actually know what happened here, and it took alot longer then the few seconds of video. This guy and his friends were drunk, breaking a vendor's stuff and jumping around causing problems. The police had to come and tell them to stop. After telling these guys many times to stop and just go home, they kept doing it any way. The guy you see asking the questions had to tell him to back away many times before the big push you see here. The drunk refused to listen, kept getting in the face of the police officer, and refused to give his information. Finally, the other police officer had to subdue him as he just wouldnt stop his actions. If the guy who was taking the video was soo concerned, why didnt he help the police? No, he wanted to have something spectacular to post here. Real nice, you're a great citizen dude.
