  • Unmarked police car almost sideswipes mailman getting out of his mail truck making his daily deliveries
  • Mailman yells something at car, then goes back to deilvery the mail
  • Car stops, back up and 5 police officers get out
  • Police officers confront uniformed mailman ask for identification (as if the uniform and the mail truck werren't enough)
  • Mailman says it is in the truck but makes no effort to retrieve it
  • Officers attempt to arrest mailman and he initially hold his arms stiff, impeding the application of handcuffs
  • Mailman drops package he was holding
  • Bystander tells mailman they were recording the interaction and he will be vindicated by a lawsuit
  • Officers arrest mailman
  • Package is left on sidewalk
  • Mailtruck is left double parked on the street with the door open
  • Man is eventually charged with resisting arrest
  • All 5 officers got home safely that evening

If black men would just get jobs the cops would leave them alone.

Brooklyn DA Kenneth Thompson recommends house arrest, no jail time, for ex-NYPD cop Peter Liang; family of victim Akai Gurley outraged

The rookie cop convicted of fatally shooting unarmed Akai Gurley in the darkened stairwell of a housing project should not spend a single day in prison, Brooklyn’s top prosecutor said Wednesday.

Instead, Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson sent a letter to the judge recommending that Peter Liang complete 500 hours of community service, five years probation and be confined to house arrest for six months.

Seems fair to me. Who cares about the guy who was murdered for doing nothing but deciding to use the stairs anyway.

If those durned black men would just use the elevator a good cop would still have his job

The main thing is that the officer is safe.

"Arrest Proof Yourself" is a great read for anyone wanting to understand how cops think.

Jesus. Video, blatant violation of traffic laws, alleged (and easily provable) cell phone use... Why are they even trying to fight this?

And least the driver stopped and tried to help. You halfway expected them to just drive on.

Well. You can have video footage of cops literally choking a man to death and still have bootlickers like ataturk chiming in about how they were in the right. So I guess they figure they can protect a cop for running a pedestrian over.

In any case, here's a little story about the mailman who got arrested, complete with info about how his fiancée is a cop:

Is it part of cop training to make resisting arrest allegations and statements when their asshattery is video taped?

I'm fairly certain part of standard operating procedure is to yell out "stop resisting!" when arresting someone. This way later on they can claim, "look, he's resisting!" because cops' statements are sacrosanct despite no evidence otherwise.

Dude . . . the bystander commentary is great. (In a heavy patois) "Bitch ass NIgga badge ana gun"

I would question every arrest those thugs made in the past.
