Las Vegas, NV — An innocent couple was picking up their daughter Wednesday night when the father was accused of "fitting the description," and then he and his wife assaulted.
The subsequent video taken by the assaulted father highlights the problem of police escalation and incompetence.
As the video begins, the officer has his pistol drawn, which was the reason that compelled the man to begin filming. Since it was cold outside, the man filming had his other hand in his pocket, which is not a crime.
After politely explaining to the cop that they were merely picking up his daughter, the cop became even more enraged and ran up to the man, who, only seconds prior, was so scary the cop had to draw a gun on him.
"You have a gun in your hand," says the man filming.
"Yeah, I know that, because you're a possible robbery suspect," replies the cop, ignorantly assuming that a couple and their baby would somehow be out robbing houses.
"Because I'm black?" asks the man.
"Yeah, okay," replies the officer who is still holding his pistol. "Step over to my car please."
"For what?" the man asks. "We are picking up my daughter."
At this moment, the officer should have seen that there was indeed a child in the car and ended his incompetent detainment. However, he was not about to back down, so he rushed the man.
The man is then assaulted by the cop, who somehow keeps yelling "get your hands out of your pockets," despite at least one hand holding the camera and the man informing him that he does not have his hands in his pockets.
The video was uploaded to Facebook by a personal friend of the couple, who says after the video stops is when the worst of the assault took place.
First off, I want to say, by no means am I posting this to say fvck the police or whatever, I did all that last night. But I am doing this to spread awareness about police harassment since it hit very close to home.And so the soiled rusty cogs of the police state grind on, laying waste to civil rights and inflicting physical harm on anyone who gets caught in its path.
