CBS News) A Las Vegas police officer is in hot water after being caught on tape beating a videographer outside of his home in March.
A police department review found that Officer Derek Colling violated police policies when he used “excessive force” on Mitchell Crooks, reports the Las Vegas Review Journal.
According to the newspaper, the incident occurred on the night of March 20, when the 36-year-old Crooks was in his driveway videotaping police as they investigated a burglary report across the street. Crooks said that when he refused to stop filming, Colling arrested and beat him, with much of the altercation recorded by the camera.
Answer: Man you really don’t like the cops do you ? 🙂 Look, go look at that video again and remember what the guy first said when the officer asked “do you live here?” The guy said “No.” So go to the cops point of view, they’re rolling up on a reported burglary, they don’t know this guy with the camera let alone anything else that is going on. For all the cop knows, this guy is robbing houses and somehow gets a kick recording police when they show up to the call (Odd I know but some criminals actually get a kick out of this). So the rest, fake fake fake fake fake and he is doing nothing but “panning” for the video. Now will the cop get tried and convicted in the court of public opinion, heck yes, guilty of excessive use of force? Well when the sane minded review boards get a hold of it I can see them coming to the same conclusion, officer safety, subject stated he did not reside on the private property he was standing on, officer told him to stop filming in order to investigate him further, subject failed to comply and was detained for everyones safety albeit the videographer got exactly what he wanted, to lure the police into his little three year old game so he could claim brutality or his “rights being violated.” If it was me, I would have cuffed him too until I figured out who he really was and what he was doing there outside of taping me. Your in the area, you state you do not reside there, I’m there looking for burglary suspects, yep, your getting detained and you can play drama queen all you want, fine by me, been there, done that. Did you read the paragraph where he was treated for his injuries at the hospital? Oh yeah, neither did I.
Walk in a cops shoes, you will see things very differently.
