As my friend and I were merging to another freeway we were tailgated by Police officer on a motorcycle. Not just tailgating but he was so close we could reach out and touch him. Very dangerous indeed. So then the officer fly’s by me at a high rate very close to my chevette nearly hitting us so then I follow with all cameras rolling.
I noticed he was taking off his name badge prior to him slamming on his breaks hard trying to cause an accident. I was to far away for that to happen but he needed an excuse to pull me over even though that was not an excuse as I have broken no laws. As he slammed on his breaks I could not move onto the other lane he was pointing to as there was oncoming traffic. This would of caused an accident for sure. Then after blowing my horn at him and going by him, he then pulls me over.
People, this is intimidation attempt, harassment , and abusing the badge if I have ever seen.
The Houston Watch is made up of several citizens who document the double standards displayed daily by law enforcement or public officials. This is contributed to several reasons such as:
– The lack of officers, deputies, etc upholding their oath to defend our constitutional rights is becoming normal and too often.
– Brutal and obvious violations of citizens constitutional rights seem to be on the rise.
– Harassment to citizens seems to be common practice and with some unacceptable excuse such as “Terry Stop”
– Illegal search and seizures or unconstitutional stops such a DWI Check points.
Just to name a few…..
We are very appreciative of the outstanding law enforcement officers that work with the community and not against as there are many. However it’s a shame that it seems that all have not attended the same training class of those we applaud. One officer can make not only make the department look very bad but the entire judicial system created throughout.
I will always record around me and I suggest you do the same !! Whatever the case, always film the police at a safe distance without interfering during their stop and certainly if you are ever stopped. Always, if possible, have another person with you who is also recording. (recommend Bambuser application for smart phones)
The camera is your friend and will protect you. Stand up and utilize your constitutional rights all times!
I know there will be some people who comment on here that will be for the police officer and I expect that (most likely because they are in law enforcement or related to someone who is or was. However you will receive no commit from me as it will not be warranted. Also any other stupid comment will not be responded to, only those will intelligent questions that are of interests.
