If you want to hear what an out-of-control cop sounds like, listen to this cop who actually threatened the kid simply for reminding him to use his blinker when turning into parking places or driveways.
At one point the cop even threatens to waste the kids time and hold him there as long as possible just for stopping alongside him and telling him to use his blinker.
This is exactly what an out-of-control cop sounds like, one who clearly takes his power a little to seriously.
New footage has emerged showing the moment a suicidal gender fluid Georgia Tech student was fatally shot by a campus police officer. Scout Schultz, 21, died after being shot on the university's Atlanta campus by officer Tyler Beck on the night of September 16. The new video, which was filmed by a student in a nearby residential hall and tweeted out by the lawyer for the victim's family on Wednesday, shows Schultz walking slowly towards three officers. The officers can be seen forming a semi-circle around Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, about 20-feet away. Beck can be seen shining his flashlight at Schultz as the 21-year-old approached them. Schultz, who preferred to be referred to as 'them', had earlier called 911 to report a man fitting the student's description with 'long blond hair' and wearing a 'white t-shirt' walking around campus with a knife or gun. The student was carrying a utility tool with the blade not extended as the 21-year-old approached the officers. The family's lawyer, Chris Stewart, says the new footage shows the vast distance between Schultz and the officers and has argued that Beck should have been able to tell the student wasn't armed with a knife.

Sacramento Police released video of an officer-involved shooting where a K-9 officer was stabbed. On Sept. 11, a man in a truck rammed a security gate at the William J. Kinney Police Facility at 3550 Marysville Boulevard. Officers sent a K-9 Reno after the suspect to apprehend him. Reno was able to wrestle with the suspect, but the suspect fought back, leaving him with lacerations. At one point, an officer says he saw the suspect reach for his waistband, so he opened fire, hitting the suspect once in the leg and missing three more times. In the ensuing chaos, investigators saw blood and assumed Reno had been shot. Reno is expected to make a full recovery. The suspect, 42-year-old Fernando Sanchez, was able to flee after he was shot and made it to a nearby residence where officers say he assaulted the homeowner with a metal pipe and later tried to leave in the homeowner’s car. Sanchez was booked into jail on Sept. 15 on suspicion of charges including robbery, attempted carjacking, assault with a deadly weapon

Police officers in Indiana mistakenly took an actor on a movie set for a real robbery suspect. Indiana State Police were called to the Back Step Brewing Company in Crawfordsville on Tuesday evening for a possible robbery in progress call after someone called 911 to report seeing a masked man with a gun enter the back of the building. When officers arrived from the Crawfordsville Police Department, they saw a masked man coming out of the door at the eatery with what appeared to be a gun and ordered him to drop it. Officers fired at the man, later identified as Jeff Duff, striking the building nearby and not hitting him. Duff then dropped the gun and took off his mask before telling officers that he was filming for a movie. 'The bullet went by his head. It was very close,' Phillip Demoret, an actor said. 'I don't want to think about it. If it had hit him, we'd be having a whole different conversation. Thank goodness he wasn't. Via Police Activity.
A gunman opened fire from a hotel room above a packed, outdoor concert in Las Vegas, killing at least 58, wounding 515 more and prompting chaos as the panicked crowd scrambled for cover amid the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who announced the death toll, said the shooter, identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, was found dead by officers who stormed his 32nd-floor room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
Lombardo did not directly address the issue of terrorism but described Paddock as "a distraught person intent on causing mass casualties."
"We have no idea what his belief system was," Lombardo said. "We believe he was the sole aggressor."
Rita Katz, director of the SITE Intel Group that monitors terrorist groups, tweeted that the Islamic State issued statements saying Paddock was one of their soldiers and that he converted to Islam months ago. However, Aaron Rouse, chief of the FBI’s Las Vegas office, said no connection to the militant group had been found.
Meanwhile in Toronto a man stabs and what sure looks like and attempted beheading of an elderly man as bystanders yell at the guy to stop.
Earlier this month, Mary blogged about Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett claiming that he was racially profiled and victimized by Las Vegas police. Bennett, an early supporter of former 49er Colin Kaepernick’s anti-American protests, further claimed that one of the officers threatened to “blow [his] head off.”
Police responded to reports of gunfire in a casino, appropriately entered the casino with guns drawn, ordered those present to get down, and saw Bennett fleeing the scene.
Additional police body cam footage, along with various security camera footage, has been released and shows that Bennett defied police orders and ran from the casino. We do not hear whether or not Bennett was threatened with having his head “blown off,” however, because that officer’s body cam was not on. This officer may be disciplined for the lapse.
