Video: Cop Tickets Man For Pointing Out He's In The Wrong
Chris | InformationLiberation
A Venice cop on video makes up a "crime" to ticket a biker for because he made him look like a fool by pointing out he was in the wrong. A crowd gathers and joins in the fun, everyone agreeing the cop is insane.
As a result of the man "arguing" with him, the criminal in uniform insists on adding a made up charge for "speeding" to add on top of the made up charge of "biking on the wrong side of a bike path."
The cop's extortion letter apparently demands he pay the state $238.
"On a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend on the Venice bike path an LAPD officer was blocking the path on his motorcycle and another young girl was partially blocking the other side and bike traffic was backed up. I said, "officer, your motorcycle is blocking the bike path" to which he replied, "I can give you a ticket for that".
A bit later and I have sirens pulling me over and I record the rest. You really gotta listen to how stupid this is. Some good quotes in there."
He made his first court appearance just yesterday, he's planning on showing the video during his next hearing and he's hoping he'll get the charges dropped as a result.
