Police officer lying to citizen, on camera

2017-03-13 22:53:31.356643+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Wilmington North Carolina police falsely told a man he couldn’t film them. ‘I’m an attorney,’ he said. ‘I know what the law is.’:

“If a police officer gives you a lawful command and that command is disobeyed, they’ll arrest you,” Bright said. “The fact that I wasn’t arrested and he didn’t even try to arrest me is proof that he was being dishonest.”

So the big problem here is: You know that the police officer is lying to you when you refuse to do something and they don't arrest you? I sure hope that the ACLU (or even this guy, 'cause he's a lawyer) sues the fuck out of the Wilmington NC police department and gets enough of an award that other police departments sit up and take notice.

Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
