Video: Cop Lands Helicopter to Harass Woman Collecting Rocks

Ridiculous waste of police resources caught on camera
Paul Joseph Watson



A San Bernardino police officer piloting a helicopter was caught on camera circling a lone woman in the desert, before landing the chopper and then proceeding to harass her in a ridiculous example of how police resources are being wasted to shake down innocent people.

The clip begins with the police helicopter making numerous over flights of the woman as she films the chopper.

The helicopter then shines a light in the direction of the woman as it hovers lower and prepares to land. The chopper lands and the pilot, an officer with the San Bernardino Sheriff’s office, approaches the woman and asks her what she is doing.

“Just exploring and picking up rocks,” the woman responds.

The cop then demands the woman’s ID to which she responds she doesn’t have any. When the woman asks why he is questioning her, the cop responds, “We’re investigating something right now.”

The police officer then proceeds to take the woman’s name and date of birth in order to perform a criminal background check via his walkie-talkie.

After he gets a response from police headquarters, the cop asks the woman if she has any weapons, orders her, “don’t put your hands in your pockets,” and then proceeds to perform an unconstitutional search of her person.

“I know you’re doing your job but I don’t consent to a search,” says the woman as the cop continues to rifle through her belongings.

The cop eventually walks back to the helicopter having nullified whatever threat a woman out in the middle of the desert posed to the safety of San Bernardino residents.

The incident took place on January 24, before the shootings that led to the manhunt for Christopher Dorner.

With many police departments across the country going broke and telling citizens they will no longer be able to respond to crimes like criminal damage and burglaries, the officer’s actions during this incident represent a ludicrous waste of police resources.

It costs well over $2,000 dollars an hour to fuel a police helicopter. The video footage lasts ten minutes, and even after the cop lands the chopper, he keeps the rotator blades switched on during the entire incident.

At the start of the clip, the woman indicates the helicopter made several low passes before landing. Given that the duration of the incident probably ran to about half an hour, this absurd event cost taxpayers about a thousand dollars – all for the purpose of pointlessly violating an innocent woman’s 4th amendment right.

70193 His behavior was creepy. He was evasive and should have told the young women the purpose of detaining her. When she asks if she did something wrong, he ignores her question and asks for her license. Then writes her name and DOB and procedes to use his radio to run an inquiry on her name. He then initiates a search all the while he is in her personal space far less than the 3-4 feet which is considered polite and respectful. She has to tell him twice not touch her and he STILL has not told her his reason for detaining her. It appears that she may be on Federal Park Land and since he is a Sheriff, he may not had the authority to land the aircraft to conduct police business in a jurisdiction that would be covered by a federal park officer. It's a good thing he did not assault her physically. However, he could be guilty of assault and communicating a threat to this clearly, nervous and fearful woman. His entire persona, body language, positioning and deceptive communication style was intended to threaten and dominate. PLEASE REPORT THIS INCIDENT. Something is very disturbing about the whole situation.
