Chris | InformationLiberation
This video is extremely disturbing. A fascist terrorist in uniform viciously assaults a complete stranger for merely asserting his right to videotaping him.
Colling: Can I help you, sir?
Crooks: Nope, just observing.
Colling: Do you live here?
Colling: Turn that off for me.
Crooks: Why do I have to turn it off? Iím perfectly within my legal rights to be able to do this.
Colling: (Walking towards Crooks) Turn off the camera for me.
Crooks: Iím perfectly within my legal rights to do this, sir.
Colling: Listen, turn off the camera for me.
Crooks: No sir, I am within my legal rights to do this.
Colling: You donít live here.
Crooks: I do live here.
What follows is a harrowing beating and the screams of a man in extreme pain, all for videotaping a supposed "peace officer" who thinks he is entitled to viciously assault anyone he pleases. Per usual, the cop then proceeded to charge his victim with "battery on a police officer and obstruction of justice."
Derek Colling is a Las Vegas police officer who attacked a citizen for videotaping him on a public street last month.
The videographer was Mitchell Crooks, a 36-year-old man who ended up with a bruises on his face and a broken nose.
Colling charged him with battery on a police officer and obstruction of justice, which could have sent him to prison.
Fortunately, the district attorneyís office dropped the charges against Crooks. But even more fortunate is the fact that they returned his camera without deleting his footage, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
